The Frieze Art Fair is really always worth a visit, as you get the chance to see a huge variety of new artworks exhibited by the worlds best galleries. This year I was quite inspired by the use of metallics. Highly polished, yet often used organically in shape or mixed with rougher elements. Here are just some impressions from my visit featuring Hayley Tompkins, Jim Lambie, Gary Hume, Takuru Kuwata and Tony Cragg.
Here some impressions from the fabulous Marques Almeida SS17 show. A happy rebellious feast of colours, textures and prints such as colourful jacquards, Pastel lace, punk stripes, Silver metallic foil and the frayed denim of course. All modelled by the Marques Almeida girl gang, friends of the brand or girls casted via Instagram.
Congratulations to the MA team, Marta and Paulo to another fantastic collection!!!
Belstaff’s SS17 womenswear collection “Across The Wilderness” celebrates the anniversary of an epic 5.550 mile motorcycle journey across America by Augusta and Adeline Van Buren, two fearless sisters who campaigned for the right of women. A collection full of gorgeous leather pieces and biker jackets, flattering boiler suits, yet also soft feminine pieces for independent characters with a yearning to venture free. Congratulations Delphine Ninous!

Markus Lupfer SS2017 collection is a celebration of individuality. There are no rules. Nylon raincoats wrapped around feminine ruffle dresses, jewelled sneakers, hand-drawn bunny and cats for prints and apple shaped sunglasses celebrate fun, liberty and personality. A fabulous set design, with flowers breaking free from the hard floor, adds to the atmosphere. Congratulations Markus to a fabulous collection!!!
Already a while back, but I finally had the time to post these photos of some of the talented Royal College of Art MA Graduates. Here featured Hyun Oh, a Fashion Womenswear Designer specialising in Knitwear; Angelou Zhu a Womenswear designer and his laser cut collection and Isabella Macleod a Fashion Menswear designer. Congratulations and all the Best for your future!
Here some pictures from the Vladimir Karaleev presentation at the Berliner Mode Salon. I just love his sensitivity for fabrics and his ability to be feminine and minimalist at the same time. He really is the master of drapes – draping so pure, minimal and gentle yet edgy and constructed.
Thank you Vladimir for designing close to your heart!
Here some photos from the gorgeous Augustin Teboul Spring/Summer 2017 show, shown part of the Berliner Mode Salon at the Kronprinzenpalais Unter den Linden. A glamorous, glittering, yet beautiful crafted collection, with filigree textures, lace, heavy Punk inspired studding and gorgeous embellishment. Pop-Punk-Couture meets delicate beauty – all supported by the live set of Walls & Birds.
Congratulations Annelie and Odély!!
17th century Baroque decadence and the inspiration of Versailles meets Scandinavian simplicity, creating an interesting play at the SS17 Tiger Of Sweden menswear collection shown at the Ambika P3 Gallery during the London Collections Men. Wild and playful prints and weaves are merged with sharp tailoring, while layered vests add an interesting play with proportions. Congratulations Tiger Of Sweden to a collection full of gorgeous surprises!
