Welcome to the roller coaster, at this point Fashion is going up and down, trying to survive and go ahead in this world of miss corona.
Last week Raf Simons presented his SS 21 pushing boundaries and stereotypes in a green world filled of lines and clean shapes, of course some saying this is a bit Pucci for all those prints but at the end in fashion many copy each other or just inpired for other fashion house which i think its the best , inspiration is better than copy.
For Raf this collection was about expresing his opinion, memories, feelings like printed t-shirts saying TEENAGE DREAMS, in somehow a simple and narred down Prada mood. as he is now the second head of the PRADA designer team along with Muccia.
Mode Suisse get in the 17 round and with all the enviromental situation it keeps going, I am attending mode suisse since its 4 show and everytime is a delightful taste of swiss designers who try to improve with different ideas and textiles, some will be stuck with getting too much influence of big brands other keep developing and showing a strong DNA, this is what fashion is about for example AWS and Lida Noba.
Both had a strong collection and a magnificent essence for color:
AWS Lida Noba
in this small and almost private venue we also had the chance to have like a re-see, to touch and see each garment closer also the chance to talk with designers and see what are they thinking of this business, anyhow this is business at the end.
Garnison Klaesi Holdener
In a mens world dominated by suits and boring colors, Garnison and Klaesi showed a new wave of simplicity, elegance and coolnes. simple colors but different structures and oversize sophistication.
Lipault, the young parisian fashion house of bags, suitcases and accessories, brings a whole new sense of style, colour and novelty to the classic world of luggage and leather goods. astonishing materials, an infinite palette of colours and the freedom of the chic and bold parisian style. from handbags to weekend bags, lipault designs its collections keeping in mind all women who are as free with their fashion style as they are in their lives.

A spark of madness perfectly embodied by the whimsical supermodel hanne gaby odiele in the new festive and quirky advertising campaign lipault x jean paul gaultier.
