Siki Im SS14 Remorse
"This idea shaped the SIKI IM collection. The clothes borrow from the garments of institutions, specifically penitentiaries and hospitals, but strip away what’s somber and restricting about them to suggest a sense of liberation. A jumpsuit appears in a luxurious, airy linen or crispy Japanese cotton, and a raincoat has been made from thin paper-nylon. Silky nylon tops and tunics reminiscent of protective medical scrubs are worn under or on top."
On phone so don't have much to contribute but, a favourite of mine
Ann Demeulemeester f/w 09
That cardigan/shawl thing is legendary
An interesting label to keep an eye on
Their approach to fashion and design seems so distinct from any other label
Their flagship store is one of the designer's old apartments
Their collections are shown in paris, but also in intimate parties, modelled by friends
Another favourite of mine is marques almeida ss13
Really like the raw cuts on the tops
Jan jan van Essche - Project 2 Redeem
This shirt is waiting for me at the post office
"In PROJECT#2-REDEEM Jan-Jan Van Essche’s urge is to create a series of rudimentary shapes and to optimize full widths of fabrics including the remnants. This project evolved/matured into a conscious story of simplicity, comfort and timelessness. Details are stripped off and contours are highlighted, achieving an elaborated wardrobe to be openly interpreted and easily integrated into the wearer’s life.
The subtle nuances of the blacks add discreet depths to the layered silhouettes, while the in-house handmade wefts tone, enrich and divide the black color. These wefts are made from remnants and are used in their purest forms, respecting the material –from selfedge to selfedge. A slow pace is set by the loom, nurturing the rhythm the designer continuously seeks in his creative process.
For this project yak yarn was sourced from the Mongolian steps and the knits are developed and produced in Antwerp by the well respected Hilde Frunt.
A hand felted series of alpaca hats are added to the wardrobe finishing and edging the silhouettes. The designer opted for the alpaca in its natural black color in order to retain the tangible luster of the fiber. After having the alpaca carded in the house, the hats are hand felted/blocked by another renowned craftswoman from Antwerp, Ann Galland."
forgot image again
i am very distracted tonight
Issey Miyake Pleats Please
Julius is a more wearable, less emasculating RO imo
Aside from the ornamental wood masks, his clothes seem very wearable
I could never get used to long tees and dropcrotch pants
Here is Issey Miyake with some goofy geometry
Always loved his jellyfish dress
So you tell me to keep an eye for a company that 1) can't rent/buy their own store, so they do it from their basement/old house
2) can't rent fashion models so they ask favors from their friends.
Go spam again in 2 years when they aren't bankrupt but actually can show they have sold anything.
They have several other stores around the world
They also use professional models for their paris runway shows, they only use their friends for private gatherings where they show off their collections
BLESS has been designing clothes and making a profit since 96, where their fur wigs were commissioned by Martin Margiela for his own paris runway
I could do without the attitude
