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 Mandzukicis 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:
I would never expect these three words put together to make so much sense, but Korean designer CY CHOImakes 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: Pictures via Cy Choi
Let’s cut the bullshit for today, because it’s been a loooong day and I am tired as fuck. I am blessed but stressed and am seeking my bed so bad. And so ETQ Amsterdam is fulfilling all my needs right now by keeping random questions about their background and who they are short and simple:
WE COULD TELL YOU ALL KINDS OF STORIES, BUT THAT’S NOT WHO WE ARE. WE’RE HONEST. CLEAN. TIMELESS. EXCEPTIONAL. AND SO IS OUR PRODUCT.
On point! And not only the designs of ETQ Amsterdam‘s sneakers are dope is fuck, but so is their attitude. And they don’t need all that blah blah blah, because the sneakers speak for themselves. So serious question: can I like seriously have these and live? I swear these are made for me to walk in. So check out my favorites, but don’t forget there is more on www.etq-amsterdam.com:
Good night y’all and I bet I will be dreaming about wearing these sneakers.
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.His 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“: You can’t say this shit is not epic. You just can’t!
Last post for this year.
And there is no looking back! And no need to look back. It’s been an amazing year with a whole lot of new and upcoming designers, fashion weeks and partying and the list goes on and on and on. So I wanna take the chance to say THANK YOU to every single reader and supporter!
