DOVER STREET MARKET LOS ANGELES IS OPEN

Dover Street Market Los Angeles is open for business. “It’s really sad and somewhat annoying to read that the future of retail is online. Don’t get me wrong, our e-shops are doing incredibly well and are becoming a very important part of the business. But, ultimately, we’d like them to stay as a kind of service […]

OLIVIER THEYSKENS — SPRING 2019

Olivier Theyskens’ spring 2019 collection—though presented in a warehouse during daylight hours—continued to touch on the darker, somber side of nature. It started with headpieces fashioned from sticks of wood painted black, and it carried on through the prints picturing Hans Bellmer’s famous Doll series. The collection is comprised mostly of dresses, where their fabrics […]

VALENTINO — SPRING 2016

It was in the warmth of a late fall afternoon—in a sun parlor with succulent plants, on a soft white carpet—that the spring 2019 collection of Valentino was presented. Valentino is one of the oldest and most traditional Italian maisons, based in the historic city of Rome. Today, between the guests present and the models […]

LUTZ — SPRING 2019

Lutz invited his audience to the Salle Pleyel in Paris to present his spring 2019 collection. While the red light on the red carpet recalled a nightclub ethos, the Art Deco style of the room harks back to classical and traditional qualities in the atmosphere. His collection followed this path with rigorous cuts and odd […]

NOIR KEI NINOMIYA — SPRING 2019

Noir Kei Ninomiya’s défilé spring 2019 took place in the same building where Junya Watanabe staged his own a floor below a couple of hours earlier. There is a logical reason for this: both designers are part of the Comme des Garçons group. That aside, Ninomiya takes a very personal and specific approach to clothing. He knows his classic: the leather […]

JUNYA WATANABE — SPRING 2019

Junya Watanabe is certainly one of the most punk rock designers, yet that doesn’t prevent him from convening his audience early in the morning and on time. These types of distinguished feelings—radical and refined—characterize his spring 2019 collection. The set today is a bit decayed—a concrete building under rehabilitation, where the daylight comes into sight from […]

COMME DES GARÇONS — SPRING 2019

To attend a Comme des Garçons presentation is always something quite unique during the busy week of collections. After all, REI KAWAKUBO is herself a one-of-a-kind designer who always deploys interesting thoughts through clothing. Today she took her audience to the Palais des Etudes of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Since space is an extremely important element in KAWAKUBO’s work, within […]
