Momentum and possibility, movement and progression have always been the forces behind Shayne Oliver’s vision, driving the artistic direction of his collections and collaborations. These elements have informed Oliver’s overall point of view, which he brings to his new collaboration with Longchamp. The founder of New York-based cult menswear label Hood by Air joined forces with the luxury French leather goods and fashion house, Longchamp, to develop an inventive capsule collection of travel accessories and ready-to-wear that merges the distinct creative spirit of both collaborators.
Taking the concept of travel gear into a new era, the collection Longchamp by Shayne Oliver merges Longchamp’s history of craftsmanship and French elegance with Oliver’s transformative aesthetic, resulting in a dynamic offering for both men and women. The collection includes leather goods, footwear, ready-to-wear and garment bags, as well as a new iteration of Longchamp’s iconic Le Pliage® tote, reimagined by Oliver. “I really like the idea of working with brands that are masters of their craft,” Oliver shared. “Longchamp has a prestigious history of providing luxury travel essentials with expert craftsmanship. It made total sense to work with them on my first all accessories project.”
Throughout the collection, proportions are challenged and silhouettes are altered, disrupting the preconceptions of modern day travel. Travel takes on a new art form, underscored by unwavering freedom and temporal mobility. “While this is not the first collaboration for Longchamp or Shayne Oliver, it was a particularly energizing experience to work with Shayne in order to offer an unexpected collection to our customers,” said Longchamp Artistic Director, Sophie Delafontaine. “Designing Longchamp product through Shayne’s lens was an exciting challenge that allowed us to create product that is truly original.”
Longchamp By Shayne Oliver will launch at select Longchamp stores including the Longchamp Soho store in the US and on Longchamp.com before rolling out to Longchamp stores internationally in early May 2018.
Zadig & Voltaire opened its doors in Zurich,
A new wave of cool fashion that the french house is bringing to Zurich is what we were looking for, Cecilia Bonstrom talked about a cool kid feeling, a nice bag and a person who wants to feel nice and chic. Zurich store is just in the middle of the city. please check some impression and do not hesitate to visit the store.
With this lovely roller coaster in fashion with so many designers,and of course so many things behind of that, i guess some of them they just design something not to the brand level and just give some space for other brands, anyway, in this case i want to point LOUIS VUITTON, as slowly you see that quality is going down and direction to nowhere, only thing is just the monogram which is very emblematic but the most fake brand in the world, of course they need to sell but it remains only in leather monogram goods and not fashion anymore, check this pics and my thoughts about it.
This bag originally was done by GIVENCHY, now LV
Big sale only Monogram LV which you can find fake it anywhere, why paying to much?
Sunglasses matrix style done of course for BALENCIAGA some seasons ago.
Where is the creativity?
In this world of full of creativity, with so many changes and movements, where all trends are creating a new wave of living full a fashion fantasy, but sadly small houses are follow the big ones. We see way to much Vetements, Balenciaga influence, losing the identity of the house, but Some like MAISON MARGIELA its not, keeping their own line and spirit of creating coolness, funk and cool brand. This season we are going to take a trip to the silver moon , to the silver folie, to the silver spoon , a world full of only silver color , no space for other mood, this color coolness, this shinny sensation is making us getting all their pieces, colored leather, different fabrics but same mood.
I am super happy with to see this kind of trends separate from the mainstream.
Check some impressions:

With 9 Brands, each with different backgrounds in which i love to jump from sexy bombshell into space gowns or classy trend complemented with a super mega cool Models casting, weird but cool, crazy but modern, powerful but clean shape, An important game of fabrics with huge prints and synthetic forms complemented with chains. that was the most memorable statements of the night, Although there is a strong (i mean strong) influence of named brands like Balenciaga, Vetements, Celine and The Row.
GARNISON was a total yes, with clean shapes and a new option for menswear, solid dark statements but keeping it cool.
