We are happy to share the lookbook of Sruli Recht’s Fall/Winter 2013 season. The collection is called Concentrated, a meditation on the many holocausts committed by humanity, past and present.
Yesterday I stopped by the installation/trunk show of the New York label InAisce held in West SoHo at the menswear boutique Atelier. It is a first event of this kind for InAisce, where you can view the entire Fall/Winter 2013 men’s and women’s collections, pre-order the garments that you like, and chat with the entire InAisce team. You can also check out the remarkable wool felt pieces by the Dutch artist Claudy Yongstra. The trunk show will go on through today.
Check out the video for the new Alexandre Plokhov collection. And watch this space for an exclusive update from his showroom next week.
We would like to present to you Siki’s Fall/Winter 2013 Paris collection.
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.
Australian label Song for the Mute presented its 7th collection during men’s fashion week in Paris. This season, the collection also features heavier weight pieces for the winter, and creates an interesting correlation between hard and soft -sharply cut and tailored garments as well as more relaxes and comfortable ones. The materials used, many created from scratch together with fabric mills in Italy and Japan, strike a similar balance. Where as some have a soft and organic feel, others are made rigid and crisp, such as a paraffin coated cotton and fireproof quilting.
On a snowy and gloomy sunday afternoon last week, the Stylezeitgeist crew invaded the showroom of Boris Bidjan Saberi, hidden inside the massive Institut Français de la Mode on the left bank of Seine. The runway show, which had taken place the day before, showcased the fall-winter 2013-14 collection in a way which could perhaps be described as restrained and refined, sparking some speculation whether Saberi had steered away from his street-influenced style. But the full collection on display told another story; while there were certain mature elements such as his signature blazers, button up shirts and loosely cut trousers, they were balanced by aggressive, armor-like leather jackets, slim pants and jeans in heavily treated fabrics as well as garments using technical materials and construction methods.
