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…)
In case you are already missing the warmest season, the Hermès Spring/Summer 2014 collection is definitely something for you as Christophe Lemaire took the Hermès woman into the jungle. Lemaire’s big influence was Henri Rousseau, the French artist, who painted jungles without ever having seen them. The venue just as much recalled a summer-atmosphere as did the collection; deep green jungles depicted the beautiful landscape of the Amazon. The range of summerish looks spoke of botanical freshness, embracing warm earth-colours and head-to-toe floral prints. The loose garments such as 3/4 trousers, straight dresses and trench-like airy coats flowed effortlessly around the body in a comfortable, yet slightly feminine manner. Relaxed silhouettes indicated the tropical-ease-of-living, while some statement leathers contrasted – or rather balanced – the simple culottes and low-cut shirts. By carefully sticking to that effortless chic that defines the Hermès look, it’s was both natural, wearable, and not least lovable.
Falls ihr schon die warme Jahreszeit vermisst, dann ist die Frühjahr/Sommer 2014 Kollektion von Hermès definitiv was für euch, denn Christophe Lemaire nahm die Hermès Frau mit in den Dschungel. (more…)
I suppose the name, Madeleine Vionnet sounds rather familiar and recalls the good-old fashion history lessons, where Vionnet‘s name was taught as a dogma, and truly, without doubt she was no less person than an architect among dressmakers, the queen of bias-cuts. I’ve found it important to mention this as after more than 100 years of heritage, Goga Ashkenazi – the house’s creative director – managed to reprise some elements from the classic Vionnet archives – you can still spot the delicately draped backs and closed fronts among the pieces. There was also a well thought-out expression of ease and effortlessness, a great flow of elegant minimalism that has been a little pushed into the background in the season. Instead of stiff volumes and edgy shapes, relaxed and lightweight pieces ruled the line-up creating soft, floaty, flattering silhouettes in the palette of light blues, yellows and natural, stony hues. The soft sky palette blended ease showcased a frankly charming demi-couture collection, that would fit in every woman’s wardrobe.
Der Name Madeleine Vionnet klingt ziemlich vertraut und erinnert an den guten alten Unterricht in Modegeschichte, wo Vionnets Name wie ein Dogma gelehrt wurde. (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!
