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.

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.

Schueller de Waal Collection Spring-Summer 2018 Compulsory Shenanigans

Schueller de Waal Collection Spring-Summer 2018 Compulsory Shenanigans

Schueller de Waal is a Dutch independent fashion label which showed their 9th collection ‘Compulsory Shenanigans’ for Spring-Summer 2018, yesterday evening (Sept 6th) in Tower 4 of the World Fashion Center in Amsterdam. The designers, Rens de Waal and Philipp Schueller, went Big, Large and More! They set themselves the task to measure up to show like the huge and established fashion houses do; within, and embracing the limitations they have as a small and independent fashion label.”Serious fashion…not so serious” as Schueller de Waal stated. Fun! We like that at Mimi Berlin.

The average fashion show, held by established designers like Chanel for instance, has a few ingredients to dazzle the audience with. Schueller de Waal incorporated some of these ingredients in a playful manner by presenting lot’s of looks (worn by many models) including Continue reading

Closing Show at Amsterdam Fashionweek by Maison The Faux

Closing Show at Amsterdam Fashionweek by Maison The Faux: FAUXmosapien

Maison The Faux are Tessa de Boer and Joris Suk, they are based in The Netherlands. (read more about MtF Here on this blog) Let us begin by describing the show venue at the Westergasfabriek. It was filled with 12, neatly lined up, Ergoline Prestige1600 tanning machines. If you didn’t know these were sunbeds you could easily imagine yourself being in the hibernation room of a spaceship traveling in time (think Aliën or A Space Odyssey for example) Anyways: it all looked great! Placed at the beginning of the catwalk, in front of the huge movie screen, was a centered ‘check-in desk’ with an entertaining performance by 3 hostesses. All this looked like something Mr. Lagerfeld could come up with for a Chanel Show…. Okay; enough about the inspiration/dreamed-up world Maison the Faux shared with us, the audience, after all this was a fashion show. The collection was divers within it’s design-format: it included extreme looks (so-called ‘experimental’) with a follow up on more wearable designs (so-called ‘commercial’) In our opinion covering both qualities in one collection is an intelligent and strong way of communicating with the audience. It helps you to understand (unconsciously or not) why you need that striped dress (and the photographed outfits below). Without kidding; communicating by means of fashion isn’t an easy thing to accomplish, but SO nice when it happens! Don’t worry if you missed this show; there will be a second chance to see it at New York Fashion Week in September.

ArtEZ Masters in Fashion Design dans Paris

ArtEZ Master in Fashion Design dans Paris

Yesterday (3/4/2016) the generation #17 of graduates at the ArtEZ University of the Arts Masters in Fashion presented their collections in Paris at the Atelier Néerlandais.

Graduates Sunna Örlygsdóttir, Hee Kim, Lisa Förster and alumnus from generation #14, Simeon Morris each got a room in which they created an individual atmosphere to show their collections in. They all opted for a tableaux-vivant, which is a smart choice; the public is able to come upclose, take pictures and have a talk with the designer, well, that’s what we did anyways. The students got to meet with experts from the fashion industry (invited by ArtEZ’s Master in Fashion Design course director Mark van Vorstenbos) Alexandre Morgado (VIP designer Marc Jacobs), Laura Vernier (Headhunter Paris), Hector Castro (stylist, o.a. 10Men, Givenchy), Esther Loonen (Alumna Arnhem Masters, designer oa Isabel Marant) and Marisol Ferradas (Agent, oao Christophe Lemaire, Forte Forte) discussed the collections with the students. The collections were “preview” collections, they will be finished, including the tips from the experts, and shown in Arnhem when they actually graduate in June or July 2016.
