Soulland: Exotic Erotic

I seriously asked myself: why am I always late with shit? I need to set my priorities right for 2k15 and post things in time and on time. But then again fashion can never be old news…

So during LCM Soulland was presenting their AW15 collection “Exotic Erotic”.
Soulland was founded in 2002 and is owned by designer Silas Adler and CEO Jacob Kampp Berliner. Its design principles and aesthetics have their origins in Scandinavian artisanship combined with a contemporary feel. Whilst always remembering its legacy, Soulland aims to push menswear forward in new directions.
Presenting two seasonal collections alongside two pre-collections every year, Soulland has received much acknowledgement from international press outlets such as The New York Times, Euroman, GQ, ID Magazine, Bangkok Post, The Guardian, Dazed & Confused and Selectism. Soulland designer Silas Adler was awarded Designer of the Year at DANSK Fashion Awards 2012. Open your eyes:

Paula Rosine

My NYC designer friend Paula Rosine dropped her very first jewelry and accessories collection. And you better believe me when I say that it’s one of a kind. The necklaces and bracelets are literally magnets, because people on the streets or on after-show-partys would not start a conversation without making a compliment on her jewelry! And getting genuine compliments in NYC for your style or fashion pieces is the hardest thing to get. Like it’s on #lifegoals level!

However Paula Rosine (“Zine”) is a New York based designer and artist. She earned degrees from Duke University, the University Of Cambridge, and Parsons The New School For Design before honing her fashion expertise at Chris Benz and Kate Spade. Paula Rosine discovered her love for 3D modeling while working on a line of silicone jewelry for her mentor and idol Geoffrey Mac. She describes her work as “the love child of Manish Arora and Iris van Herpen”, which is the perfect description. I could have not said it better!
Her eponymous jewelry line pairs technical innovation with a signature outré aesthetic. And I promise you have notseen this kid of jewelry before! So take a look:

Virtual Nostalgia

And then this right here happened.
And I am not ready for it (actually my bank account is not ready for it):
DOM SEBASTIAN  gave us a little sneak preview of his new collection named “Virtual Nostalgia” and it looks soooo good. And it’s coming soon. I don’t know exactly when, but I am sure that my bank account will still not be ready… However one day I will walk down the streets with Dom Sebastian stuff on my skin.
In the meantime check out this brutally beautiful pics:

Who is Jessica Walsh?

Do you know that feeling when you hear a name all the time, but you don’t know what it’s about? You just hear that name over and over again and you are eager to find out. Who is Jessica Walsh?  I had sleepless nights and after days of searching and researching I finally got the answer (thank you Fucking Young!):

Te 24 year old British born menswear designer Jessica Walsh graduated with her BA from the University of Westminster in London before progressing straight to the MFA program at Parsons. During the 4 year program at Westminster she studied both mens and womenswear design and she did internships in the fashion capitols London, New York and Amsterdam.

Fucking Young says about her collection:
Her Spring/Summer 2015 collection represents a feeling that she want to evoke, and the relationships of groups of friends – in particular boys. “There’s almost a sense of conjecture when anyone looks at a group of boys and the roles they each play to one another, this is something that has fascinated me for a while. So from this idea and wanting to identify the research just developed really quickly. This idea of bruising the fabric to create an intimate touch. The series of photographs of slants of the body that are printed on the jersey t-shirts. The interviews that created the huge geometric patterns that are again translated into jackets. I think these are just some of the ideas that I played with as there was so much research developed, but these strongly represent a sense of colour and volume that are important to the menswear that I want to produce.”
