Saisonniers’ ‘Juliet’ collection: vulnerable beauty

Beauty and tragedy are so closely intertwined – the latter serving to heighten the former, for beauty is truly appreciated once we realise just how fragile it is – that anyone to this day would easily name Romeo & Juliet as the ultimate romance. Shakespeare’s great story still ripples its inspiration across the years like waves across a pond. Designer Cheryl Curtis of Saisonniers is…

Soulland meets Babar: childhood nostalgia you can wear

Age is no barrier to imagination, though – once we pass through the treacherous straits of adolescence – we can get sucked so far into adult life we sometimes need a little push to send us back into those magical worlds that were once open to us. That’s why you can never be too old to indulge in some piece of clothing covered in a…

ArcheTrip: ancient tribes meet modern day

Morfium‘s collections always take you on a trip to some other time, some other place that’s not quite of this world. Often the fantasy is one of mythology, gods and goddesses, always fantastical and always stirring the imagination. Their fall 2013 collection does that again, but this time it’s ancient tribes that beckon you to another time: Morphium’s prehistoric woman might be of the past…

Out of the ordinary: Sylvio Giardina

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…
