Karl’s Fall collection for Chanel Haute Couture was inspired by concrete: that staple of modern design, the material essence of chilly simplicity, of ascetic starkness. But he gave it a soul, and what a foundation it served in return! As poured concrete once replaced planks and tiles in architecture, so Karl replaced couture’s complex patterns and seams this season with sculpted silicone-coated lace and tatter-beaded neoprene. To truly make something new, the old must be

Jean Paul Goude is the major billing here as a whole exhibition floor is dedicated to both retrospective and new work, with the rare chance to see the infamous Grace Jones
>> I’ve been sweating it out during the summer months to talk up all things furry and fraggle-esque (faux of course). First I was honoured to be a part of Hannah Weiland aka creator of faux furry fun label Shrimps‘ gang in the new issue of Elle Collections.

From the beaches of Montauk and the streets of NYC to the boat docks of Austin, glistening, jewelry-like, temporary ‘flash’ tattoos were the stars of summer 2014.

It’s hard not to draw a poetic parallel between Dover Street Market’s biannual New Beginning process when the store is replenished and redone and Nicolas Ghesquière’s now infamous “Today is a new day. A big day.” statement typed out on a letter, which was given out at his inaugural Louis Vuitton show in Paris. Dover Street Market’s New Beginning and Ghesquière’s ‘New Day’ go hand in hand together to bring about a special space dedicated to
Malin Henningsson’s jewellery first caught my eye when the Rookies of 2014 (chosen by the Swedish Fashion Council) were announced. Despite being one of the Rookies, making jewellery is not new to Malin. After several years of studying Jewellery Art and Textile, Malin launched her own brand in 2013. Drawing inspiration from hardware stores, Malin ;… Continue reading → SOURCE: Style Creeper - Read entire story here.

Faded by light, we often seem to chase the dark nature that speaks formally to the depths of our inner workings. We’re attracted to the idea of something else; something new, somewhat unpleasant yet wholly desirable to have. This editorial speaks to just that – the nature behind the chase for darkness: dressed in desire ;… Continue reading → SOURCE: Style Creeper - Read entire story here.
