NOW: BALLY  FW14

NOW: BALLY FW14

How do you create a contemporary wardrobe but also embrace your heritage? More than 150 years of history and dedication to craftsmanship have decidedly helped Bally to answer this question. The new Fall winter collection is beautiful testimony of excellence, coolness and attention to detail. You won’t find any outlandish pieces, but just the perfect proportions, details, fabrics (sourced in England,...
NYFW: DESIGNER RECAP SS15 – PART 2

NYFW: DESIGNER RECAP SS15 – PART 2

I stumbled upon a Futurist’s manifesto this weekend in a Bushwick bookstore. While scanning the summary, my eyes were caught by the name of this chapter: The Necessity and Beauty of Violence. Back in the early 20th century, the world went through a massive industrial revolution with trains and cars reshaping countries and contracting distances. A few Italians...
NYFW: DESIGNER RECAP SS15 - PART 1

NYFW: DESIGNER RECAP SS15 – PART 1

This last NYFW was certainly one of the strongest I’ve ever seen here. Unlike the women’s collection’s, often tagged as very commercial, the men’s shows offered an energised and creative vision balancing between the London designer’s (Nasir Mazhar, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Raeburn, Agi & Sam) and the Italian perfectionists (Bottega Veneta, Zegna, Gucci…). Discover my...
INTERVIEW: VEJA

INTERVIEW: VEJA

You certainly remember my previous Veja feature posted a few weeks ago introducing their new sneaker La Memory (if not go here). I was very curious about the brand, what makes it so unique and how Ghislain and Sebastien, co-founders, started this adventure. Veja is almost 10 year old now. How did it all start?...
NOW: FRED PERRY x RAF SIMONS FW14

NOW: FRED PERRY x RAF SIMONS FW14

Just a little video preview before the entire collection drops really soon. As always with these guys, the result is slick and elegant. You will probably spot some pieces from the preview collection…
SS15: PREVIEW

SS15: PREVIEW

It is quite a something to recap all the shows and list all the new trends (or if I may say variations since this season didn’t offer major shifts). But there are still things that I want to point out. One of them is this recurring theme “soft lines vs hard lines” seen everywhere between Paris and Milan. Tracking down...
NOW: INSTAGRAM RECAP

NOW: INSTAGRAM RECAP

My Fashion week’s marathon is finally over! Seventeen days, four cities, and also countless great moments, new and friendly faces. Before starting posting my street style series and if you have missed some of my Instagram’s post, here is a small recap
NOW: NIKELAB

INTERVIEW: GARRETT LEIGHT

INTERVIEW: GARRETT LEIGHT

Reinventing sunglasses is a tricky job. A lot has been done before and most of us, at least those of us addicted to them, have seen almost everything. But when it comes to offer a modern take on heritage inspired sunnies, few designers can make the cut. Garrett Leight is one who has. He first...
NOW: SNCL SS14

NOW: SNCL SS14

SNCL continues its foray into streetwear by developing powerful and graphic silhouettes. Reilly, SNCL’s head designer, was influenced this season by Jasper Johns’s artwork. Best known for his Flag series, the Pop Art artist developed quite a radical aesthetic playing with multiple textures, materials and using preexisting elements (newspapers, fonts, labels). SNCL new collection emulates...
NOW: WOOYOUNGMI SS14

NOW: WOOYOUNGMI SS14

After celebrating the 50’s last summer, Wooyoungmi took another road this season focusing on a more graphic language. The collection revolves mostly around strong contrast and color blocking giving a fresh urban take. Her silhouettes have also evolved toward an elegant reinterpretation of streetwear trends seen almost everywhere this season. Oversized tees, sweatshirts, cropped jackets and bold colors (love...
NOW: JUUN J SS14

NOW: JUUN J SS14

I I remember leaving Juun J’s show last June and thinking “what the hell just happened?”. I still remember clearly seeing the boys furtively running on the catwalk dressed in these surreal clothes one more impeccable than the next. Thirty eight looks in almost seven moments. It was a major demonstration of Juun J’s innovative...
MOOD BOARD: STUDIO PRETZEL SS14

MOOD BOARD: STUDIO PRETZEL SS14

I’m thrilled to present this new series called Mood Board. As you know, designers collect tons of elements before creating their collection. Travels, literature, and different kinds of textures from fabric to food are always part of the story telling. These mood boards aim to present the original idea behind the design. Today’s first guest...
NOW: SONGZIO SS14

NOW: SONGZIO SS14

It’s becoming obvious that Korean designers are slowly but surely taking over the runways. The most famous one, Juun J, is now acclaimed as the most popular of this group. Before I present his Spring Summer collection later this week, I wanted to introduce Songzio. While they both were trained at the same fashion school, Songzio has developed...
INTERVIEW: RALEIGH DENIM

INTERVIEW: RALEIGH DENIM

I’m not a denim hunter. Like many, I wear jeans almost everyday, shop for the best fit (depending on the style that I want to achieve) and try to get a good deal. But there is one thing that I care more about that and will encourage me to spend more, it’s the story and...
NOW: MSGM SS14

NOW: MSGM SS14

Have you ever dreamed of quitting everything and moving to California? If yes, the MSGM SS14 collection is for you! Packed with tie-dye, flower prints and bleached tartan, this new season is an invitation to go west, watch sunsets, skateboard, but most importantly stir up the hippie in you. After two last seasons featuring numerous bold and...
NOW: JULIAN ZIGERLI SS14

NOW: JULIAN ZIGERLI SS14

Fashion is an ongoing conversation embracing new trends, techniques, and social evolutions. Unlike established houses, young designers have this amazing freedom – and almost obligation – to experiment. Julian Zigerli has proven season after season to be one of them, using each project as an opportunity to invite artists, graphic designers or just explore abundantly...
NOW: KAY KWOK SS14

NOW: KAY KWOK SS14

I find it quite delightful to see a young designer nurturing without overworking his style. Looking back at Kay Kwok’s collections, you can easily understand where he’s coming from and where he’s going. This evolution seems completely effortless with his silhouettes even more uncluttered, stretched, and geometric than they were before. This maturation is also marked by...
NOW: KTZ SS14

NOW: KTZ SS14

KTZ’s success is the story of an underdog turned into one of the most acclaimed and successful brands. Unlike many brands, KTZ has created its own rules and thanks to that, found a massive audience ready to jump into its world. Season after season, Marjan Pejoski and Koji Maruyama have expanded horizons, mixing gothic, mysticism,...
NOW: BOTTEGA VENETA SS14

NOW: BOTTEGA VENETA SS14

Summer is generally the pivotal moment of the year where designers reveal bodies, embrace bright colors, and most importantly develop a more joyful narrative. Unlike his colleagues, Bottega Veneta’s designer Tomas Maier took another direction. The colour palette was consciously limited to black, grey and white (with few splashes of color), no shorts, no sandals,...
