Yet another big and beloved name, 3.1 Phillip Lim shown his collection during New York Fashion Week that we couldn’t help not reflecting on. Lim’s Spring 2014 collection is based around the idea of elements and the ecosystem, showcasing earth-coloured statements, while even having the runway made of salt crystals. To the question of ELLE whether he has always been interested in science, he answered the following: ‘Yes, I have! I am an evolutionary designer and find myself always thinking it must all exist for a reason.’ The collection once again provided the ultimate in-s for the upcoming season regardless of any romantic summer flairs, it rather showcased raw landscapes, ‘a brute yet beautifully charged ecosystem’ reflected on luxurious fabrics. Not to forget about styling, the mirrored Linda Farrow x Phillip Lim sunglasses only strengthened the edginess and volume of the structured pieces as the models feet slightly sinked in the pure white salt crystals as they down the catwalk.

Noch ein weiterer großer und geliebter Name, 3.1 Phillip Lim hat seine Kollektion während der New York Fashion Week präsentiert und wir können es einfach nicht lassen, über sie zu schreiben. (more…)

Luckily SilkSoFine managed to say congrats and ask some brief questions from Dorothea Gundtoft stylist and fashion writer right after winning the Danish ‘Stylist of the Year’ prize by ELLE. It was such a great occasion because Dorothea has just finished writing her first book on Scandinavian fashion published worldwide by Thames&Hudson back in February 2013. In addition she’s also being the creative mind and curator behind the Fashion Scandinavia movement, which we got to see during London Fashion Week. The book, as well as the initiative of such movement gives a comprehensive insight to Scandinavian designers’ distinctive and diverse approach to design. It’s just as much about established designers such as Henrik VibskovAcne or COS, as about the up-and-coming successful new generation like Anne Sofie Madsen or Wood Wood. To get back to the interview Dorothea basically said she is in coma yet and will probably only realise it the next day…We hope this moment came by now, and this will give an extra to continue her great mission. Congratulations once again!

Glücklicherweise konnte SilkSoFine Dorothea Gundtoft, Stylistin und Modeautorin, direkt nachdem sie den dänischen ‘Stylist des Jahes’ Preis von ELLE entgegengenommen hat, gratulieren und einige kurze Fragen stellen. (more…)

There are many cliches going on around the ‘Scandinavian fashion/style’ topic about blacks, minimalistic styles, oversized silhouettes, but this Award was all about beauty, sophisticated styles, unique jewellery and breathtaking textures. Lets have a look at some of our favourite looks / Es gibt viele Klischees über das ‘Skandinavische Mode/Stil’ Thema: viel Schwarze, minimalistische Styles, übergroße Silhouetten, aber bei diesem Award ging es ausschließlich um Schönheit, eleganten Stil, einzigartigen Schmuck und atemberaubende Stoffe. Lasst uns einige unser Lieblingslooks anschauen:

Living in such digitalised world, print publications are having a hard time to stay in race with blogs and online magazines. Leading Fashion Magazine, British Vogue – also called the Fashion Bible – is probably the most prestigious magazine of all times, and most likely each of us gets the chance to have a closer look at it once in a while. Besides the other popular Conde Nast publications such asGlamourW Magazine or Vanity Fair, the UK provides us with excellent independent publications too, just like i-D or TANK. Both of them are covering contemporary culture, such as art, architecture, fashion, current affairs, and music with a distinct voice in a least convectional style. By the way the latter was actually founded by former Vogue art director Terry Jones back in 1980. We fall for the German Elle Magazine too; it’s slogan: ‘Si elle lit elle lit Elle’ (If she reads, she reads Elle) remained true for more than a half of century. Germany’s new success Magazine, OE, acts as a platform for the German, and particularly the Berlin fashion scene. Another favourite is the Hungarian publication, titled the Room, which is a bi-lingual (English and Hungarian), cutting-edge mag with unique visual imagery that speaks about high-fashion and arts in a boundless way. Scandinavia also has its own visual diaries, namely just the two biggest ones: the Swedish ACNE Paper and the Danish DANSK Magazine, both displaying strong Scandinavian attributes in editorials, chosen themes and not least sharing a high-quality content.

Wir leben in solch einer digitalisierten Welt, dass gedruckte Publikationen es mittlerweile schwer haben, mit Blogs und Online Magazinen mitzuhalten. (more…)

Have you seen the current ELLE UK issue with Miss Rihanna on the cover? The issue is available with two different covers; one includes looks from her Spring/Summer 2013 collection for River Island: a black, zip-through River Island skirt paired with a Louis Vuitton monochrome top, while the other one, a striped bra from the same collection peeking out from Prada’s silk and satin stole. After all ELLE UK interviewed Rihanna about her music, style and controversial relationship with Chris Brown, through 12 pages showcasing Rihanna’s sex appeal besides the text, which runs under the title ‘Rebel’. I think we can all agree on the latter.

Habt ihr die aktuelle ELLE UK Ausgabe mit Miss Rihanna auf dem Cover gesehen? Diese Ausgabe gibt es mit zwei verschiedenen Covern; eines enthält Looks von ihrer Frühjahr/Sommer 2013 Kollektion für River Island: einem schwarzen, zip-through River Island Rock kombiniert mit einem Louis Vuitton Monochrome Top, während das andere sie in einem gestreiften BH der selben Kollektion, der unter Pradas Stola aus Seide und Satin hervorblitzt, zeigt. Die ELLE UK interviewte Rihanna anschließend auf 12 Seiten über ihre Musik, ihren Style und der kontroversen Beziehung mit Chris Brown, während Rihannas Sexappeal neben dem Text mit dem Titel ‘Rebel’ gezeigt wird. Ich denke wir können uns alle auf letzteres einigen.
