As a huge fan of HBA, i was feeling sad when designer SHAYNE OLIVER finished his last collection and hibernate. my feeling were kind of mixed as i wanted to have more and more pieces of art as that is for me what HBA means. then he started to go around some Collab (Longchamp, Helmut Lang). but now he is back after years and launching some pieces and we think ,, Does it have the same impact than before? are we amazed again? would it be cool and exclusive again? well the first pieces were kind of mmm let me think about it as it was a garment who even mainstream shops can produce. so i was like mmm
Now HBA dropped an amazing Campaing with queen Naomi called MOTHER. Are we getting something we were looking and waiting for? it is going to the right track again. with this image absolutely.
Sooooo now i will keep my fingers crossed and see any update.
JOANNA BUCHANAH is here to give us a lovely and cozy Valentine with a bee collection.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, accessory designer Joanna Buchanan presents a nature-inspired collection celebrating love and her fascination for bees. The US-based designer pursues creating joyful interior accessories for the daily life and special occasions, a value she now incorporated in thoroughly curated pieces to epitomize the message of love and generosity inherent to Valentine’s Day celebration.
In addition to the natural elements inherent to Joanna Buchanan’s creations, a sense of magic stems from her decorative charms. The red heart and red lips designs, presented as wine charms and cocktail sticks, are a wink at Valentine’s Day iconic motives. These lucky charms are a modern take on classic romantic decorations with a sense of humor and magic.
This 2020 has been a roller coster for the fashion industry but the most important lesson is that we need to start to choose carefully and with more consious buying better quality products and less fast fashion, also a way of improve its how fashion shows has been created in diferent ways to present its collections.
Huge example is Alexander McQueen which present an amazing video presentation of its collection, please see video below and just feel amazed by creativity and amazing clothes.
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.
BALENCIAGA just presented its campaign for fall 2020, in this case we are seeing a pure and natural campaign in which 3 mins show us a simple and daily life of different persons in full Balenciaga looks.
As many people dont think Balenciaga is doing good and its kind of strange but at the end Balenciaga is pushing a better fashion direction and an easy way of style, nothing over produce. i stand for the brand and its compromise with a better fashion fairness.
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.
This season we are watching lot of ideas, lot of trends, lot of excellent pieces and lot of details. This is now the new wave of having a luxury item, its just details and this time again LOEWE went into lace and make it part of a full garment with special craftsmanship techniques.
EASTPAK is very proud to present us a second Andy Warhol collection collaboration. This time we are going more graphic and stronger in terms of logo and principal characterization of Andy Warhol. This pop iconic artist left us so much cultural richness and why not carry on everywhere you go.
This collaboration will be available for Summer 2019 in all forms as Duffle Can, Padded Pakr, Springer and Tranverz. please check some images
This is the world of Rick Owens, this is the way how he see the world, and I love it, this season was about textures, maybe alien textures with all the marvelous make up.
He said “I felt like i needed some grim, determined glamour” this lovely mood make us re-think we should have our own identity, no mainstream, no fast fashion, just express your way of freedom just dressing different, for this collection his coats with sculpted shoulders and some fur situations make us ahhh, also some tailored jackets.
