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.

Margiela, The Hermès Years

Martin Margiela

Martin Margiela was the creative director for Hermès from 1997 to 2003: at the Fashion Museum in Antwerp they made a complete exhibition out of this fact! Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited. We were especially stunned by the beauty of the showcase below. It wasn’t allowed to take photo’s at the museum but we simply had to make this one.The skirt and the upper part of the boots are made in the same fabric, a traditional Hermès cloth. The leather parts are in Navy (that’s dark blue)

Eva Stenram

Wow, these manipulated photo’s by Eva Stenram are magical! At first glance they seem to be vintage shoe fetish pin-up pictures, at second glance they still are very sexy! Although the images direct the mind in a severe way, they leave so much room for the imagination at the same time.

Eva Stenram on Drape XI “I turned this intriguing vintage pin-up negative into a new ‘Drape’ image. It will be shown at Pobeda Gallery, Moscow, in September. The print looks great (50 x 50cm).” (quote taken from her blog) Make sure to check out her site, her work is certainly worth the visit. (photo’s courtesy of Eva Stenram via mudwerks)

This post is so opposite of yesterday’s post: Knitted Tops, for women without legs. The pitch of the week.
