Last week Comme des Garçons opened their first freestanding POCKET shop in New York City. The concept store carries PLAY, perfume, wallets and other items.
The Belgian brand A.F.Vandevorst has announced their men’s shoe collection for Fall/Winter 2015. The collection features designs in waxed cowhide and calfskin in a polished or faded croc-effect with an elevated heel, all crafted in Italy. This collection sees a more androgynous approach to men’s footwear.

GUIDI EVENT IN NEW YORK
Several days after his Spring/Summer 2016 men’s show Haider Ackermann was in his showroom, which was buzzing with buyers. Ackermann came down from the top floor of the building where he was already shooting the looks for his e-commerce platform, to be launched soon.
I meet Veronique Branquinho on the 21st floor of a high rise in Chelsea where she’s showing her pre-Spring 2016 collection. She’s in a corner suite with floor-to-ceiling windows that glance out over the Hudson, where industrial barges and cruise ships coarse by in clouds of spray and vapor. The evening is pearly grey and the room feels weightless, suspended up here in a box of steel and glass. Weightless, too, is the effect of the collection: dresses, all white and long, draped on a sparse cluster of forms with a lone live model at their center. Her dress is black with leather straps and falls to the floor. I think of Greek columns and their counterpart in ancient draperies, where the cloth is suspended simply from the shoulders and takes shape only with the moving body.
