NOW: 3.1 PHILLIP LIM SS14

New York or Ibiza? Urban dwellers or bohemian beach look? Phillip Lim was clearly inspired (and maybe conflicted but who wouldn’t be?) by these two tribes. His Spring Summer collection plays constantly between oppositions and contrasts: floral prints, bright red and cyan, soft fabrics, oversized shirts and pants, summer stripes vs muted colors, fitted silhouettes,...

Since its launch in 2011, Marques ‘ Almeida has been sold at Opening Ceremony. For this season, OC took their support a bit further...

SHOPPING: DR MARTENS SS14

Dr Martens has gone wild with its new spring summer! Their tagline “Stand For Something” is truly the only way to define this collection.

There is not a single week without a major Air Max release. Today, A.P.C. is launching its own Nikes. Made in dark navy and of course no A.P.C. logo in sight, these sneakers are pure a minimalist statement. I love the contrast between the suede, the upper part in mesh upper and the leather accents. As always...

SHOPPING: CADET SS14

It took me some time to appreciate Cadet. When I first spotted it few seasons ago, most of the NY designers were branding their collection “Made in USA” as unique selling point forgetting to care about the most important part, the quality. The  fabrics were poorly selected and the execution and the fit were off....

NOW: RAF SIMONS SS14

Raf Simons couldn’t find better a metaphor than this gigantic Calder mobile installed in the Gagosian gallery where his show took place last June. Elongated, monastic but with a splash of color, you can easily see a vibrant homage to the American sculptor. I also love how Raf Simons translated the current sportswear’s obsession by stretching...
