Please check out the work of Nico Uytterhaegen, the Belgian designer who produces some brilliant bags, footwear, jewelry and a perfume series. We are glad to share the showroom space with Nico in Paris during the men’s fashion week next month at 13 rue de Thorigny in the Marais district.
In case you did not know, GUIDI, the Italian maker of shoes and bags, is also a tannery with a 120 year tenure, called Guidi & Rosellini.
Next season the company pays tribute to its heritage by relaunching the Guidi & Rosellini brand of shoes and bags. All products will be made from cowhide leather that will not be shaved before tanning, rendering each hide unique due to its varying thickness.
We wrote about the otherworldly work of Aoi Kotsuhiroi in our second print volume. Those of you who will be attending the Arnhem Fashion Biennial in Holland, curated under the theme “Fetishism in Fashion,” will be able to experience Kotsuhiroi’s creations in the flesh, but we offer a little preview here.
We want to introduce to you another outstanding under-the-radar brand, Piece d’Anarchive. We came across their clothes at Susan of Burling Game in San Francisco and we were thoroughly blown away by the quality of fabrics and construction. They do best what we love vest – take the traditional values of craftsmanship and make them absolutely modern.
From the 29th to the 31st of May 2013, during the Preview days for 55th International Art Biennale, Paris-based under-the-radar label Aganovich will join forces with Venetian brand Setecento to present a womenswear capsule collection at Bauers l’Hotel in Venice.
In 2011 Zhao Wu and Chen-Ling Fan decided to solve an all-too-familiar problem – how to offer interesting basics without breaking the customers’ bank. Thus VOIDTHEBRAND, the line of not-so-basic men’s tops was born.
The business opportunity seemed a no-brainer. There clearly is a void to fill, as there is significant demand from those who want to neither pay $350 for a designer t-shirt nor be stuck with a run-of-the-mill crewneck offered by mass market retailers.
We would like to present the Fall/Winter 2013 collection by the German artisanal jeweler Werkstatt:Munchen. This season, in addition to their usual offerings, W:M wanted to experiment with leather and added a few interior design pieces with new treatments.
Earlier this month we presented Barny Nakhle’s men’s collection of footwear. Here is the women’s counterpart for next season.
