Isabel Marant is one of the most in-demand fashion lines in the world – and that is a fact. Having already given us statements like hidden-wedge sneakers or baroque wallpaper resembled bombers, she’s now reaching out to a wider crowd with her collaboration together with H&M. With words like very French, androgynous and bohemian I could best describe  Marant’s world – you do feel her passion in her designs, while at the same time you do feel her modesty too. This makes the whole image around the brand very honest, yet very natural and apparently above all, hers.  Set to hit stores on the 14th of November, the eagerly anticipated capsule collection by Isabel Marant for H&M sees the French designer unveil her debut menswear alongside women’s and kid’s – bringing together her Parisian chic versus laid-back references available for the public. Excitingly for male fans of the brand, Marant has also created her very first full men’s collection as part of the collaboration, featuring heavy knits, biker-inspired leather pants, embroidered jeans and outerwear by balancing a fine line between the male and female collection. Save the date, 14TH OF NOVEMBER!

Isabel Marant ist eine der gefragtesten Modelinien der Welt – und das ist ein Fakt. Sie hat uns schon früher mit Statements versorgt, wie den Sneakern mit versteckten Wedges oder den Bomberjacken mit Mustern, die uns an barocke Tapeten erinnern. (more…)

Those of you who are also following us on Facebook might have seen the teaser we posted about the Camille Over the Rainbow x Pimkie collaboration the other day. The French-British Camille Charrière is much more than a blogger for us; rather a proper style-icon she could be called, who’s stylishness I’ve been following ever since. She is though a fashion writer at Net-a-Porter, while mastering a delicate taste by matching the off-duty Parisian chic with an edgy Londoner’s charm that’s a bit boyish, yet most of all very unique. Her collaboration with French brand Pimkie resulted a limited capsule collection that carries a hint of the high-streets’ scent in terms of dusty pink accents, textured neoprenes, oversized tomboy coats and so on. The collection – just like her style embraces effortless and laid-back styles with a slight grungy edge mixing monochromes with peachy pastels. The pieces are now available in all Pimkie stores and online as well! Happy shopping ladies!

Diejenigen von euch, die uns auch auf Facebook folgen, haben neulich vielleicht schon den Teaser gesehen, den wir gepostet haben, über die Camille Over the Rainbow x Pimkie Kollaboration! Die französisch-britische Camille Charrière ist für uns viel mehr als nur eine Bloggerin. (more…)

Since we have previously featured the H&M Design Award, now it’s time to announce the winner in the person of talented Minju Kim, who has developed pieces from her collection with H&M to be sold at selected H&M stores this autumn, including Germany, UK or Denmark etc., as well as online. Minju, a 27 year-old graduate from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, was selected by a jury of international fashion experts for her collection, which transformed characters into outfits. The collection combines playfulness, fantasy and constant optimism, while merging a great deal of creativity with strong technical skills. Minju’s pieces for H&M bring the fantasy world of Manga to life with unique cuts and clever fabric combinations and yet applying bright colours on textured heavy knits in voluminous silhouettes. Minju is originally a designer from South Korea, who won the H&M Design Award 2013 with her collection titled ‘Dear My Friend’, inspired by Japanese Manga cartoonist Junji Ito, and received a €50,000 prize, a show at the Mercedes-Benz Stockholm Fashion Week in January 2013 and the chance to develop pieces from her collection with H&M. You can soon purchase the results of this amazing collaboration; October 17th – Save the date!

Da wir zuvor über den H&M Design Award berichtet haben, ist es nun an der Zeit den Gewinner bekannt zu geben und zwar ist es die talentierte Minju Kim. (more…)

Avant-garde seems to be having a persistent Renaissance. I am not really sure if it is the constant pursuit of people to create something new or because radicalism has a new allegory. When it comes to fashion avant-garde indeed has a reference with exactly 20 letters: Maison Martin Margiela. Although the designer has Belgian roots the couture house is French. And not only French but also one of the leading designers from the fashion metropolis Paris, arguably influencing what is happening in this fashion universe. (more…)

Yet again a much awaited collaboration is on its way thank to our beloved creative duo, designer Stella McCartney and actress slash bestselling cookbook author slash curator Gwyneth Paltrow, who have teamed up to create a capsule collection for Paltrow’s lifestyle website, Goop. Featuring investment pieces designed by McCartney and curated by herself – as we just got to know it thank to Vogue – the collection will definitely be rejoiced by both the press and customers. There are rumours about the selection, which will feature ‘classic McCartney pieces including a black blazer, black jeans and black wool trousers, as well as several exclusive handbags – and will sit on the Goop Collection part of the company’s website, which offers products exclusive to Goop readers.’ If we follow Goop’s image, the collection must be just as practical as feminine by incorporating the knowledge of expert contributors and tastemakers and delivering an uncompromising style, and let’s be honest the latter will undoubtedly happen thank to the one and only Stella McCartney.

Es ist mal wieder eine lang erwartete Kollaboration auf dem Weg, dank unseres geliebten Duos, der Designerin Stella McCartney und Schauspielerin Schrägstrich Bestseller-Kochbuch-Autorin Schrägstrich Kuratorin Gwyneth Paltrow, die sich nun zusammen getan haben, um eine Capsule Collection für Paltrows Lifestyle Website, Goop, zu kreieren.

In terms of size, variety, contemporary aspiration and implementation, Mister Spex is the pioneer online eyewear distributor in the German market. It is not surprising that ‘spectacle’ served as a base for the creation of the platform’s name, and I dare to assume that ‘spectacularity’ has done its work here too. Certainly it is SPEXtacular that Mister Spex has grown to the biggest online distributer of eyewear in Germany in less than 5 years, offering a product range of approximately 5000 different models and providing an innovative online ‘try-on’ possibility that totally corresponds to the current media claim.

“It’s workout wear with attitude, to make you feel stylish while you exercise, creating standout pieces that you can make your own”- explains Stella McCartney the spirit of her collaboration with Adidas that is focusing on both aesthetics and performance. The continuing partnership between Stella McCartney and Adidas made a new season debut that merges functionality with the new fashion wave perfectly. In their latest Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign the technical issues become new fashion opportunities to reinterpret for example parkas and winter outfits. The collection is offering sportswear in a spectrum of vivid colours, high-tech fabrics and graphic prints that we got used to from Stella. By adding a twist to any workout, the range of sportswear is including winter leggings, lightweight jackets, sport bags that broke the standard sportswear feel and has rather been added  a street-style touch.
