While travelling to remote villages in Moldavia the Munich born but Berlin based designer Isabell de Hillerin found inspiration for her latest Spring/Summer 2013 collection ‘Eclectic Line’. Ellaborate embroideries and hand-woven fabrics that woman from over there still create for themselves like hundreds of years ago – with love and lots of [...]

Never let it be said that the Germans don´t have any humour. Looking at the latest collection of the German designer Bernhard Willhelm I couldn´t help to smile to myself. He really knows how to attract the attention of people – even just looking at his website that looks [...]
“Fashion is a creative approach to design – that’s what takes it away from just being clothes- it’s a process of design and styling.” tells us David Longshaw, an aspiring UK fashion designer. His latest latest SS13 collection made a lasting impression on us as he manages to combine a certain playfulness, [...]
The essence of this collection is rooted in street culture as well as the phenomenon of urban gang warfare. QASIMI renegotiates iconic pieces from sportwear as well as urban street wear as to portray the crossover between street and their attendant connotative messages. The process of recontextualisation is specifically manifested in the way in which raw elements of urban culture are repositioned against luxury surroundings. In short, this collection engages with the notion of urban gentrification and its significance in the contemporary moments. A very pleasant and meaningful collection.
Paul Smith looks ahead to summer with a collection that brings a spark to the senses by celebrating modern masculine elegance, bold colour and sharp, refined tailoring. Paul Smith’s punchy spring/summer 2013 menswear collection was for sure like a breath of fresh air. The collection was in my top 3 of all that was presented for menswear this season.
This is not the first Rick Owens show that I have attended, and I am always surprised by how the designer refines its silhouettes. As he says himself: “I try to make clothes like Lou Reed makes music with chord changes and minimal direct. It is mild but terrifying. This is [...]
Boris Bidjan Saberi, a fashion creator half Persian half German, launched his first line in 2008. Sharp and modern, his work focuses primarily on functionality and expresses a very strong feeling of freedom and innovation. His roots, his enthusiasm for the “street culture” and casual wear but also references the post gothic lead to develop a very interesting collection. I really liked this collection because of its very refined athletic side and the geometry and I literally melted away to the shoes shown during the show.
When asked Rynshu to describe his latest collection, he replied that silhouettes consist of: “A modern cut jacket, collarless with the liner fabric protruding from the bottom of the jacket, cigarette pants or harem pants with a draped effect on the sides, and gold and black boots or brightly colored. All [...]
Christian Lacroix‘s latest collection indeed was quite refreshing with bold abstract floral and checkered graphic prints. A colorful collection of blue, yellow, softened by the beige or black. Also, I liked this form of t-shirt with sleeves rolled up and slightly over sized on the top. Definitely an invitation to [...]
Arashi Yanagawa is the fashion designer behind the brand JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN. He was born in 1975 in Hiroshima, Japan. John Lawrence Sullivan’s latest collection paid homage to Spring Summer 2012 highlights. References from Celine, Dries Van Noten, Comme Des Garcons, Raf Simons and Jil Sander can be seen throughout the apparent collection. An efficient collection and therefore wants the people of our society in its class and comfort.
“A good stylist is like a painter – you make a total mess in the studio pulling out the colours and textures you want in the picture. So in your head you’ve got a blank canvas and you’re filling it how you see fit.” quotes the 26-year old Scottish born, [...]

Her Autumn / Winter 2012-13 collection was inspired by Samurai- the noble warriors from the Japanese aristocracy. In [...]
