Rising above cliffs from endless waters

You can’t help but notice her strong presence although the bare surroundings work hard in concealing her body beneath a layer of muted tones and harsh textures. Rising above from endless waters, her body a temple made out of broken pieces, she is a vision, a metaphor of the most beautiful kind.

Cultural limbo and clashing prints

Young Germany-based fashion designer Rayan Odyll is having a love affair with multi-tone prints for spring 2012. Finding their way onto luxe silks, these prints were “developed from abstracted childhood memories, floral motifs and Polkadots” resulting in an exotic mix that warrants the collection’s title: Cultural Limbo.

The limit of silence

Some of fashion’s subplots are defiantly estranged from the things we expect fashion to be: accessories made from hair, the leather harness transitioned from fetish to everyday wear – these are some of the things that crop up time and again despite their removal from common expectation.

Breaking the etiquette

What advice did your mother give you when you were a kid? Apart from the infamous “don’t speak to strangers,” believe it or not, we all got a fashion etiquette rulebook as kids. Who knew?
