Here some impressions of ECCO Leather’s dream factory at the Bread & Butter fair in Tempelhof. A leather heaven where some lucky visitors were able to create their own dream bag and have it evolve in front of them. I was able to watch the process of my bright green clutch evolve infront of me; from cutting by Leather Designer Anke and Makis, stitching by Paula and then Pauline adding the press studs. Panos, the CEO of ECCO Leather always in the middle of it doing his magic. Also part of the Open Circle Lab: creative collaborators Marisa and Callum from Method Studio. Progressive Leather craftsmanship at an arms length!

One of my favourite shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin was again Vladimir Karaleev. For SS15 Vladimir plays with a sport luxe feel, crafted elements and juxtaposition of proportions all executed in a beautiful and fresh colour palette of Burgundy, Pinks, hints of neon Orange and Yellow. The outdoor setting in the beautiful garden of the Kronprinzenpalais was just perfect on a hot summer Berlin evening too. Congratulations Vladimir!

Beautiful cut, sharp fitting suits in colours of the night like Black, White, Grey with hints of mauve Pink and rusty Red portrayed elegance yet with attitude. Yes, looking strong the Tiger Gang.

Karen Women’s Organisation Day…Mae Sariang, Thailand

Firstly a big thank you to my friend Rachel King, who is currently in northern Thailand working with the Karen Women’s Organisation. She took these beautiful photos on the yearly KWO day celebrating their culture and heritage. The theme of this year was the traditional clothing of Karen women. They are gathering knowledge about all the various styles of clothes as there are many different groups within the Karen ethnic group and the styles of clothing change. They organised a competition on the day and each woman had to explain where her clothes were from and the meaning of the different colours, patterns, etc. even the seeds sown onto the cloth and the strings hanging from the cloth have meaning to the Karen.

The Karen people are one of Burma’s major ethnic groups, living mostly in the mountainous eastern border region and central delta area. For over 60 years the Karen people of Burma have been resisting political, economic and cultural suppression and human rights abuses by the Burmese military regime. Since the 1970s the Karen people have fled across Burma’s many borders to escape the persecution. The KWO is a community based organisation active in all seven Karen refugee camps along the Thai-Burma border and in Karen districts within Burma working for women’s equality, empowerment and freedom, whilst supporting the Karen community to maintain its culture and identity.

Marta and Paulo, the duo behind Marques Almeida, have struck again!

From season to season the masters of frayed denim have consistently added new materials to their repertoire. This season they bring panne velvet back to life and the frayed concept has expanded into knitwear and fluffy feathers. Vibrant Yellow suits and sheepskin; a frayed, shiny denim suit with a casual Orange sheepskin throw and bright Red and Orange Satin suits. The masters of denim, just grew into masters of colours, textures and sheepskin with an inspired and directional collection. Congratulations Marta and Paulo!!!
