Quattromani S/S '14 - Third Dimension - The Lookbook

Dopo aver sfilato lo scorso luglio ad AltaRoma all'interno del concorso/evento/sfilata Who Is On Next di Vogue Italia dove hanno ricevuto una menzione speciale da parte della giuria per l'impatto e la forza della colelzione in passerella, ed dopo averla mostrata 'face- to-face' alla Sozzani e alla Wintour a Palazzo Morando durante l'ultima MFW, finalmente ecco il lookbook S/S 14 di Nicola Frau e Massio Noli aka Quattromani.

Una collezione, anche di accessori, rigorosa, dalle linee pulite ma giocosa ed ironica, ispirata alle opere di carta in 3D di Lisa Rodden e alle sculture bicolore di Willy Verginer.

Luigi Borbone S/S 14 - Femminilita', Messico e Nuvole.



Seguo ormai Luigi Borbone dai miei sordi come fashion blogger e ad anche se non sono piu' a Roma, ogni stagione, con piacere , non solo scopro la sua utlima collezione, ma mi ritrovo anche ad ammirare capi ed outfit di classe e dalla femminilita' raffinata e non gridata.
Per la stagione S/S'14 il designer si ispira ai colori del Messico con capi che gruppi di capi che vanno dal bianco delle cattedrali al blue della Vergine di Guadalupe and rosso dei fiori della Sierra; senza tralasciare le stampe a pattern vivaci e colorate come le 'polleras' andine.

 






 Linee pulite, volumi netti che scivolano lungo il corpo senza costringerlo; un mix di abiti, gonne, pantaloni, giacche e T-shirt per creare un guardaroba adatto ad ogni occasione, in tessuti freshi e comodi come il crepe di seta ed il raso di cotone.

Selfridges Bright Young Things 2013 - Sarah William - London Fashion Week S/S 14


This year due to me being super busy at work I did skip LFW all together, not even a stroll in Somerset House :-( BUT last week-end, as I was in London with R. to see 'The Book of Mormon' - which I recommend - and having an hour to spare I dragged him to Selfridges as I wanted to see up close the window showcasing the Bright Young Things 2013 project.
We ended up in-store in the pop-up shop of the project and as well loving by Sarah William bags window display I bought the T-shirt with the design of her creations!
Her  bags a quirky, modern and yet with a strong heritage and classic feeling to them, so it was the simplicity of the design on the T-shirt. I don't usually spend £45 on a tee BUT in this case I did both to support this young designer and because I love the humor of the bags.

London Fashion Week SS14_ Eudon Choi and Asian Flowers.


LFW kicked off yesterday and even if I don't usually to fashion shows reports, apart from the few designers that usually struck me ( Prada and Marc Jacobs) this time my curiosity has been aroused by Eudon Choi for several personal reasons. I knew his name even before today, but he has been under my radar for the past 2 week as his collaboration with River Island for a capsule collection launching tomorrow AND he is South Korean! That's really the key as I'm obsessed with K-pop and always interested in Korean people and culture.

His SS14 collection is inspired by Asian flowers both in terms of prints and colour palette PLUS having done his apprenticeship in menswear in South Korea, before graduating in womenswear in London, his garments are clearly influenced by menswear tailoring that can be found in the precise but yet soft cut of the white shirt and in the construction of the coats. A feminine, pretty and wearable collection that strikes a great balance between being creative and commercial.
