Five years ago, a colleague of mine told me about a young Belgian designer in New York who worked at RLX, the Ralph Lauren’s technical sportswear collection, and who was showing his first collection under his name at his apartment. I made an appointment, which got derailed by a blizzard. The designer’s name was Tim Coppens, and though we didn’t meet then, I have closely followed evolution of his work.
We would like to present to you Maison Mihara Yasuhiro’s Fall/Winter 2017 men’s London collection.
This season the designer pursues “Simplicity”. Challenging the interpretation of the word meaning “basic” or “standard”, Mihara approaches simplicity as complexity through deformed detailing and silhouettes built up from classic styles, such as a seven layer military coat.

The intrepid Dutch designer Iris van Herpen, well known by now for pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, has released her third book, Iris van Herpen: Backstage. Unlike her two previous books and as evident from the title, this time we get a chance to peek into what’s going on backstage before van Herpen’s shows. The soft cover 144-page tome (EUR 29.50) with photos by Morgan O’Donovan is published by Wilteveen+Bos and is available on the designer’s website.
