TRINHBECX

Dutch fashion designduo TRINHBECX showed the ‘Talking Trash Show’ last friday. It’s the newest collection for the TB19 season. The location was apropriate; Afvalpunt Oost (That’s the name of the place were you can dump your garbage in Amsterdam)

In collaboration with Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week, TRINHBECX had the opportunity to work with companies that offer a sustainable alternatives to existing materials such as leather and cotton. Materials like viscose developed from coffee grounds, leather created from plant cells, buttons that are made from fruit waste, in combination with textile surpluses.

As always, TRINHBECX showed well proportioned garments, including their signature bold detailing, we especially fancied the strong silhouettes. This collection can be seen as “a playful patch-work-story in a miss-match of materials with graphic lines and quirky (de)constructions.” Continue reading

Lace for Men/Hot T-shirts made in Dior-logo-lace

At the Dior show, the history of the French fashion House was dug up from the archives: the monogrammed lace or sheer mesh design,  populair in the 1980s and originally used for women’s ‘intimates’ (underwear) was re-used for t-shirts.

1980s

In the 1980s the Dior monogrammed sheer mesh was considered a bit tacky. Next to stockings and perfume it was the cheapest Dior-item available. It still is tacky now, maybe even more so because we think it’s executed in flock-printed mesh; but in a good way! In our opinion these t-shirts look só hot on men! #thatshot #auchhaben

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

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.
