Every season I am really looking forward to what Marques ‘ Almeida will surprise us with. While staying very true to their 90’s aesthetics, there is always a fresh feel or fabric introduced into the usual, yet never predictable, frayed denim mix. This season we see our grunge heroes bringing soft femininity to the table. A romantic, gothic, grunge dream I just want to be part of.
Congratulations Marta, Paulo and the whole Marques ‘ Almeida team. We love what you do!
The Belstaff SS16 Womenswear collection ‘Beauty Of Power’ is inspired by the forces of nature. An adventurous yet very feminine journey, which starts with a strong safari and desert feel and continues into soft hues, prints and intarsia inspired by waves and the power of the sea. Gorgeous colour levels and a strong sensitivity towards textile and material mixes, bring a beautiful feminine touch while staying true to Belstaff’s heritage.
Congratulations Delphine Ninous!
Here some impressions from the Markus Lupfer SS16 presentation in Westminster. A barren wasteland comes to life, spring/summer collection embodies the contrasts found in the fertile deserts of Mexico. The idea of endless arid landscapes interrupted by lush nature inspires an image of playful versus moody femininity, motifs of cacti with flowers, Mexican wrestler inspired motifs and 3D sequin embellishment shoes resembling a blooming desert.
Another gorgeous collection merging the humorous characteristics of Markus Lupfer’s work with intricate craftsmanship and luxe fabrication. Congratulations Markus!

Here some impressions from the fabulous, lighthearted and fun Bobby Kolade SS16 collection, which he showed at the Sophiensaele during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. Bobby took inspiration from Dance and Theatre and mixed textures, shapes and colours to entertain and to celebrate creativity and spontaneity. And yes Boy did we have fun watching it. Congratulations Bobby!
