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.

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.

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:

BIG BANG!
Like this  is basically how the year started: with a big bang and it’s gonna be a good one. Trust me when I say that! 2k15 is about to be epic.
Especially when you start a blog off with a designer with designs being one of a kind: Alexandra Louise Champion Hackett is a mens sportswear designer, practicing in Melbourne, Australia, who’s label A.L.C.H is kinda new to the fashion scene, but will stay there forever:
In addition to working on her graduate collection, A.L.C.H. operates as a freelance practitioner and collaborator, focusing on developing her unique textile-based aesthetic and applying it to various formats.

A.L.C.H. is beginning to become known for her work appropriating found objects (varying from caution tape to banana peels, NASA space foil to astroturf) into planar surfaces. Through the recontextualization of these textiles, A.L.C.H. fashions wearable garments and accessories, whilst looking into the subversion of the sportswear genre. And you can see all of that in her SS15 collection  “Shoplifters“:

Marco Battaglini

These paintings by Marco Battaglini are perhaps the best example of classical meeting modern that I know of:
MARCO BATTAGLINI

Battaglini invites us to think that in today’s global village, with the ‘democratization’ of culture, the evolution of knowledge, information immediacy, immersed in the heterogeneity, the Patchwork Culture forces us to confront with a need understanding beyond our geographical boundaries of time. Probably the uniqueness of the Italian artist Marco Battaglini is to conceptualize the possible coexistence of the ideals of classical beauty with the anti-aesthetic, the combination of the divine and refined with the vulgar, through a composition that can complement different realities in an eternal instant. His research of multidimensionality leads him to overlap different temporal, spatial and cultural realities, where everything seems to make sense… This is ultimately the Battaglini’s purpose: remove barriers that distort the perception of reality.
