REBIRTH OF EMMANUEL UNGARO

EMANUEL UNGARO canal2

Fausto Puglisi militates for the disappearance of the color! My life in white and black. Fausto’s creativity is between shade and light. He showed their variety and diversity in texture. For him, YSL is the re-interpretation of tuxedo.

Puglisi’s work is a study in bold contrasts and reflects both his Italian origins as well as his fascination with every facets of the American culture. Stefano Gabbana has been invited by Puglisi to take part in their retail project “Spiga 2” which featured a mix of young and unknown international designers.

Women are appearing covered in polka dots on a floor-length skirt.  Although this focus on black and white became what the French call ‘find a style’ was expertly done and gives a fashion face to a brand that had been blanked out.

Puglisi, like Emanuel Ungaro before him, is quintessentially Italian in his unabashed enthusiasm for body-conscious clothes. We love this collection, and we have probably a new St Laurent Designer on the way.

IRIS VAN HERPEN PARIS 2015

IRIS VAN HERPEN CANAL

Iris Van Herpen explores the idea of terraforming 3D materials which is the heart of the Iris Van Herpen collection. Close-fitting little black dresses are worn by models perched on platform shoes in 3D. She has worked the pleating effects for the sculptural dresses and ribbed textures for the long tubular dresses. The designer also has also worked on fluid materials for a tunic gathered at the waist.

Iris Van Herpen sets herself apart from the rest of this Paris Fashion Week. She is a unique designer, working, above all, on the figures of women, as a true artist.

This season Van Herpen has developed a dress extremely light, in translucent Polyurethane. Three-dimensionality is imperative in van Herpen’s work, and she continues her research with the creation of a 3D.

The shoes for the collection were made in collaboration with a Japanese shoe designer. They are crafted from laser-cut leather and 3D printed .

Probably, one of the best shows during the Paris Fashion Week.

IS THE END OF THE FRENCH FASHION?

PARIS FASHION WEEK1Who is Anonymode? Nobody knows. “I love fashion and yet, I could not called this text “No-Fashion”. It is a professional manifesto, the finding that a radical change takes place in the mode that makes the current fashion system completely obsolete in France.

We can notice that “the fashion industry has dug his grave” and led to its destruction. It starts with the malfunctioning of fashion schools supposed to form industrial designers, they are not; economic pressures creators and pushing them to diversify with shoes, perfumes and handbags, focusing less on clothing; the profusion of journalists and Continue reading
