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 Marques Almeida AW15 show. Its was a gorgeous feast and celebration of colours and textures. The staple frayed denim in summery brights such as Red and particularly the Barbie Pink, are a great addition to the various Indigo shades. Knits in Green, Orange and Purple, metallic leathers in bright Orange and Silver and the mix of the colourful jacquards just made me smile and feeling happy.
Congratulations Marta and Paolo!
