Moncler Genius opens Milan Fashion Week

MonclerGenius opens Milan Fashion Week

Yesterday Milan Fashion Week opened with a mastrodont of a fashion presentation held by Moncler. Introducing the ‘Moncler Genius’ project for fall/winter 2018, in which eight (8!) designers, or fashion houses, collaborated with the brand. Our personal favorite are the designs by Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative director at Valentino. He transformed the, now so very trendy, ‘puffa coat’ into a couture-like-cape silhouette, using beautiful color combinations. (see those below)

Graig Green and the Grenoble line

Also a personal favorite are the designs by Graig Green. Mr Green created Super Men, Transformers, Space Travelers, Polar Voyagers or whatever you want to name them: he took the concept of protective-wear to the max! Continue reading

Christopher Bailey gave Burberry the Rainbow Check

Christopher Bailey gave Burberry the Rainbow Check

Christopher Bailey has been working for 17 years at the luxury brand Burberry, both as creative-director and later on also as CEO. He was responsible for the very succesful revamping of this classic brand, which is of course famous for it’s gabardine trench coats; lined with the, even better known, trademark plaid in beige, black and red. (created in 1924 and officially named ‘Nova check’).

The Rainbow Check

Mr Bailey is leaving the brand in March 2018 and will leave the company completely by the end of 2018. The last collection under his supervision: The February 2018 Show, is not only a gift to Burberry-Lovers but also to the LGBTQ+ community. The collection was dedicated “to and in support of, some of the best and brightest organizations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world”. There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength and our creativity.’ – Christopher Bailey

And so it happend: ‘The Rainbow Check’ was created. Iconic! Christopher Bailey Burberry Rainbow Check

Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Fashion-week: menswear for Fall/Winter 2018. It’s a mad, mad world. It truly is. Some Fashion designers can’t take it anymore, and it shows! Rick Owens showed some kind of mutant men. (the ones with the white faces) At Comme des Garçons some of the models  wore skeleton warrior-like headpieces (sewn in fabric). At Yamamoto’s Y-Project, the boys seemed protected by thigh-high-Ugg-boots: again it’s a mad and apocalyptic world!

Comic Book

In the runway shows, by the designers above, there was also a more lighter, and more colorful side to be found. Below, for example; Comme des Garçons, a jacket with an actual comic book print. At Vetements in a more illustrative way: the comic-book figure himself.

Make sure to visit the links below if you would like to see the complete collections and video’s. (all images via showstudio.com)

Violet Chachki on the Runway at Moschino F/W 2018

Violet Chachki on the Runway at Moschino F/W 2018

Violet Chachki, the winner of season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, closed the Moschino show on the runway in Milan the other day. Remember; it’s the menswear shows for fall/winter 2018 we’re watching. Ms Chachki wore a black tuxedo, with a ‘twist’. Jeremy Scott,  designer for Moschino, named this garment the “tandem tux” because the tail was fixed to yet another model wearing the same jacket. Our best guess is that it was a female model: Violet looked rather manly. Don’t get us wrong here: we think she is always adorable!

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mimi Berlin watched the Prada show via livestream (prada.com) in the comfort of her own headquarters (praise technology!) and she has something to say about that fashion show. In a nutshell; first impression published on instagram.

And we’re off to the convention center. Which is also our holiday spot for this year. We are global citizens, wordly wanderers. We are proteced from the cold by High-tech gear, we don’t need socks. Our summer outfits are padded and printed. Our work-wear is made from padded nylon and other thick high-tech cloth (or is that wool?) the colors are in tonal hues of black, yellow, purple, brown and green.
