Sadak FW15

MBFWB is run by the Balkan connection. And I absolutely like it. Plus SADAK had by far (by faaaaaar) the best runway collection for FW15 (in Berlin). And it could have not been more Ghetto Chanel:
sadakSadak’s designer Sasa Kovacevic is a Serbian-born fashion and stage/costume designer. He graduated in Fashion Design from Kunsthochschule Weißensee Berlin,Germany; he also studied Stage and Costume Design at the Academy of Art, Belgrade. In addition to designing for his own Fashion Label- SADAK, Sasa has also designed costumes and set design for several dance projects. And this shit better land in my wardrobe.
sadak sadak The clothing is innovative and unique, while still incorporating distinctive elements from a variety of preceding periods and ethnic cultures.The various inspirations for the collections are essentially what makes them so superior in character. It’s not only the collection as a whole that comes with a motive, it’s the individual works themselves.

Always at the core of his universe (and as essential as the clothes themselves) are attitudes, moods and statements about individuality and independence. Equally important in SADAK’ s approach is the constant quest for innovation. The key elements stay the same: modern proportions, a constant research for fabrics and textures and above all the interplay of pure construction and new shapes with the body and psyche of the contemporary fashion and art.
sadak sadakSo a major HVALA for putting the right light on MBFWB!

Ivanman

Berlin. Berlin. Berlin.
A fashion week that is not relevant and at the same time not irrelevant. It’s just stuck in the middle (and every business/economy student knows that this is the worst position ever) and I think I am going to make a marketing plan to make it more attractive to the international fashion scene. although MBFWB is in it’s core super international. And labels like IVANMAN make me not want to give up on this certain week. The designer Ivan Mandzukic is bringing colourblocking into FW15 and I like the fact he is giving his style, which is more on the classical look kind of side, a more colorful twist.  And I feel like with the color orange he is in tune with the FW15 times.  See yourself:

Hentsch Man AW15

LCM Day 2. And the AW15 collections keep on coming and coming.

Hentsch Man was launched in 2008 by childhood friends, Alexia Hentsch and Max von Hurter, with the sole mission of creating the perfect white shirt. The brand has come a long way since then, now presenting seasonal collections of a diverse range of wardrobe essentials and casually tailored garments. But despite this growth, the original values of simplicity, good tailoring, good quality and good pricing remain the core pillars of the brand.Over the seasons, Hentsch Man has developed the use of print and graphics as a central feature to the collections, pushing the brand in a more quirky and tongue-in-cheek direction.

Peep the AW15 collection here:

Universal Works AW14

Universal Works.
And so does this collection work for me.
For AW15 Universal Works celebrates “the pass”, the idea of passing  something on. Something new coming out of the past, from humble beginnings that in the process of being passed on becomes more social and gains a deeper value. Something that can go from old to young, reinventing and reinvigorating. Universal Works have moved towards a cleaner, less designed look with shapes being mixed of 80’s street and smart. And the location is another living room inspiration:

Stone. Water. Piano.

Stone. Water. Piano.

I would never expect these three words put together to make so much sense, but Korean designer CY CHOI makes it happen. And that’s what this brands stands for: differentiation of the objects from the exclusive line and shifting boundaries into a new direction. Launching this brand for menswear in Paris back in 2009,  CY CHOI melts his values that agonizes the possibility of transformation between art and design and seeks after visualizing the invisibleness with his own mimesis from the past.With his FW14 collection “Figure” Cy stays true to his signature black and white style and at the same time is taking it to another level of greatness.
Uhhh, I want this:
