The fashion week is over but our work has just begun. This week we we will be presenting you with our scouting reports from Parisian showrooms. Our first feature is on Rigards, the LA/Hong Kong eyewear label that produces glasses exclusively from the African buffalo horn.
We would like to present the S/S 2014 collection by Piece d’Anarchive, a Parisian label that has been on our radar for a while. Not only their clothes appeal aesthetically, but we fully support their ethos of making everything in France, utilizing highest quality materials. We were glad to see that they extended their menswear and unisex offerings. Surely, a welcome addition to fashion.
We would like to share a sneak peak at the Lumen et Umbra women’s offerings for the S/S 2014 season.
We are happy to present you exclusive photography for sz-mag.com of the Iris van Herpen ready to wear show that took place today in Paris at David Lynch’s club Silencio.
This week A.F. Vandevorst put on an exciting show in Paris of their S/S 2014 season. Here are some photos AFV prepared to accompany the show.

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.
