I love the collections where the designs subtly hint the inspiration point, not barge into the whole thing and scream a theme. A newly LVMH invested and Loewe appointed J.W. Anderson displayed a splendid (and most wearable yet) urban collection with nautical nuances like huge seashell buttons, backward sailor pants, reasoned rope details or a mini skirt-crop top ensamble that resemble a towel suit. Anderson’s signature asymmetrical cuts took a new turn with wrap leather skirts and knit mini dresses which shall go like hot cakes next season. Take notes and all aboard!
There are only two people in the world who can envision something like this when the subject is American sportswear; Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. I’m not questioning what’s going on in their heads anymore, but I know I’m not waiting for next spring to start imitating the diamond cut oversized sweater over a fringe skirt look or to get a python coat.
There are days when it’s really hard to come up with new and interesting content for the blog, especially when you’re updating it daily like me, then there are days like these where you don’t know which context to choose for the post; on one side there’s a haze of amazing street style looks, on the other side of the screen there are wonderfully inspirational new collections. And then there are days where even after you decide on the topic and collection, you still can’t decide about the featured image because every single look of the collection is freakin fabulous. That day, in my dictionary, is called THE ROW.
The designer Kaelen Haworth has come a long way since her “drapes and checks” debut collections, exploring the varsity of cuts and chiming in to the signature New Yorker move that is to marry the inharmonious fabrics in the most edgily street style way. Call it a beginner version of NY Ellery, if you will. You know I’m right when the above displayed look (and its acquaintance) appears on EVERY blogger’s instagram.
Of all the things that made Agyness Deyn the coolest girl in the world à l’époque, this may be the most enviable one. The beautiful model + actress added fashion designer to her resume with the brand Title A, a perfectly masculine (so masculine that it’s actually feminist) brand that takes inspiration from Annie Hall, Patti Smith, Katharine Hepburn and even Cathy Horyn and one that refrains from the slightest of femininity. You can shop the collection from NET-A-PORTER.
Holy layerings, slit sides, cropped tank tops, culottes and oh harem pants, WAIT HAREM CULOTTES?! Everything you (and by that I mean me) have ever dreamt of has come true with Australian gem Bassike‘s Resort 2015 collection. Are we surprised? No. Why? Because they were already doing wonders is why.
