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:

Fashion Over Sleep

I remember last Fashion Week season I was so excited for IVANMAN, which was actually opening the FW14 season (maybe I am wrong, but I think I am right). But I just fucked up and didn’t go, because I was fucked up from the party the night before. Like I literally went to bed at like 8 am and the show was at 10 am. I chose sleep over fashion. But this time I did the right thing and chose fashion over sleep.

Stylism and Modelism were the formative influences of IVANMAN and still are for his SS15 collection. The creations of the Berlin-based designer Ivan Mandzukic with Serbian (all that Balkan connection I swear) roots are drawn from a geometric purism, which is reflected in its clean lines and minimalist silhouettes. Graphic details, such as origami folding techniques and cubist forms meet expressive colors such as ruby red, cobalt blue, ocher, or pure white. His designs always seem like classically contemporary fashion artworks.

And all I can say is uh la la la, some of these SS15 pieces belong into my wardrobe :
