During my visit to Antwerp I got to sit down with Kaat Debo, the director of Antwerp’s fashion museum, MoMu, to talk about her work. Below is an excerpt from our conversation.

From September 19th to October 12th at Andreas Murkudis’ Berlin boutique you can see an of Margiela’s infamous Tabi boots. Rich with visuals and examples, the exhibit highlights different styles of this iconic and polarizing shoe, starting from the first Margiela collection presented in 1988.
Aoi Kotsuhiroi, the enigmatic Japanese-born object designer we profiled in the second volume of our print magazine is presenting hew latest creations in an installation called “I Vomited the Wearing Out of Nameless Things” at the new exhibit on contemporary French jewelry at Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. This should be all the more interesting because her dark and quiet visual poetry will be juxtaposed against the pomp-and-circumstance of the museum’s permanent collection. The exhibit opens tomorrow.
This weekend the city of Antwerp kicks off festivities for the 50th anniversary of the Fashion Department at the Royal Academy of Antwerp. We thought we’d do something different for you.
This season Boris Bidjan Saberi produced a capsule collection for one of our favorite stores, Atelier New York.
All of the leather pieces are made of horsehide completely by hand in Saberi’s atelier in Barcelona. The long sleeved top, tank and beanie are all tubular knit (no side seams) cashmere. The scarf is also tubular knit cashmere, weaved using a 3-D imaging technique.
Each piece is numbered.

In only a couple of years of its existence, LN-CC, the London multiple-brand boutique has gone from an open secret of the fashion cognoscenti to a major player whose business model is quickly being imitated by other shops. John Skelton, the store’s co-founder and creative director, has played a major role in its meteoric rise. I recently caught up with him in London to talk shop…
One afternoon a few months ago I visited my good friend Costas at his fabric and garment dyeing studio in Manhattan. There I met two young gentlemen who were browsing a copy of StyleZeitgeist magazine.
They introduced themselves as Abdul Abasi and Greg Rosborough. They were in the process of developing their second collection under the name Abasi Rosborough, and Colibri was dyeing some Irish linen for them. Abdul and Greg had one blazer with them from their first, Fall/Winter 2013, collection with them (the collection was exclusively picked up by Isetan in Tokyo).
We would like to present Stephan Schneider’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection, “At Both Ends”.
