Tradition reworked in white leather

It’s hard to find words to express the inventiveness of Andrea Pojezdalova’s White collection. It’s as if tradition itself were picked up, brushed off, and reworked into crisp white leather. Tradition, in this case, meaning traditional Slovak folk costume, as evidenced by everything from the full-skirted, puff-sleeved silhouettes to the folkish patterns perforated instead of embroidered into the fabric. Two contrasting ideas clashing together is…

The future is now: COTE

CO|TE’s spring outfits have that kind of structured tailoring and panelled details that make them feel like uniforms of the future. Those geometric panels – especially when rendered in bold colours like orange and purple – give off a kind of mecha warrior vibe… like a simplified and beautified version of armoured robots from a cartoon world. On bags and belts these mecha shapes morph…

Titania Inglis’ edgy minimalism

Edgy has become a hard word to define these days, but it pronounces itself strongly yet subtly through Titania Inglis’ spring 2013 collection. Inglis’ pieces just have a nonchalance that’s tough and yet cleanly minimal. It’s in the drapes of fabric that fall into asymmetrical hemlines, in the unusual shaped sleeves and diagonal-cut shorts that give the impression of pockets peeking through. The palette is…

The sexy-sophisticated bride: Roland Mouret debuts wedding range

You’re familiar with the Roland Mouret signature silhouette: it acknowledges the waist, wraps its structure around the hips and balances their shape with upper details like lightly puffed sleeves. We’ve seen these shapes on red carpets and at cocktail parties and in the office. But in translating the silhouette to long white gowns, Mouret has created something the modern woman desires for her wedding day.…

Past, meet future: Damien Ravn

There are clothes that you appreciate for their beauty or design aesthetic, and then there are those that speak to you personally. Damien Ravn’s spring 2013 collection is one that addresses me practically by name: no piece of it would be unwelcome or out of place in my wardrobe. And I’ve no doubt that any girl who flits between the past and the future would…

Yasmine: the Urban Warrior

Strong and tough are words that often best describe women today. A force to reckon with, Yasmine celebrates how far women have come through a collection that screams power and dominance. Aptly entitled Urban Warrior, this look book showcases a collection in leather with zippers and safety pins as details as opposed to the usual beads and embroidery. These details are arranged in a way…

Soft summer dreaming: Raffaele Ascione

Summer is always equated to rest and relaxation and more often than not, spring / summer fashions are made for just that. Most of us are guilty of immediately associating the season to bright colored dresses in light weight fabrics. Taking a risk and going for something a bit different for the upcoming spring 2013 fashion season is Raffaele Ascione. The Raffaele Ascione look book…

Minimal chic from TOME

Sometimes ‘wearable’ is simply the best way to describe a collection. But when you cross effortless wearability with understated yet edgy detailing you get something else: TOME. Born in Australia but now based in New York, the label knows the formula for effortless cool off by heart. Their latest collection plays with volume in crisp fabrics and flow in softer ones, offering the kind of…

Andr Gyné, man and woman: Confezioni Crosby

It is a characteristic of fashion to always play with things that push the boundaries of society and of acceptable norms, in those things around us. Fashion is marvelous like this; it allows people to express themselves as they see fit, it creates a mixing of genres, it allows for the minimalist and the maximist to manifest themselves… there are not many things in the…
