RELEASE – In memory of Yohan Serfaty

During fashion week in Paris, designer Yohan Serfaty’s label Y. Project held an intimate gathering to commemorate the late designer and his work. Held at the beautiful site of the Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme, the event featured an installation where a few of Serfaty’s garments were placed on top of high ladders, dimly lit from the inside. In a pitch-dark room, a powerful video was playing on a lone screen, showing tools and machines working in an almost ghost-like manner.

Lost & Found FW13, Paris

Lost & Found is one of our favourite labels to visit, not just for the heartful welcome given by designer Ria Dunn and her husband Alessandro Esteri, but also because they are consistent in presenting a strong and beautiful collection season after season. Fall-winter 2013-14 was no exception, this time introducing some more technical materials alongside the raw edged knits and leathers in earth-toned colours and of course, black. The signature voluminous cuts were there in the form of pants and overcoats, counterbalanced by a hooded parka/poncho in black tech-fabric, or a thick black shearling jacket with heavy-duty zippers.
