GALLIANO / MARGIELA

GALLIANO100

The talented British designer is back, and he has chosen a white, minimal environment. At the front row you had Kate Moss and Anna Wintour, two faithful fashionistas, as well as designers like Alber Elbaz (Lanvin) and Christopher Bailey (Burberry). John Galliano presented this Haute couture collection of twenty models in a modern building in central London, with only hundred guests. In fashion, Galliano is like a chameleon. He is a genius.

MARIOS SCHWAB LONDON 2015

MARIOS SCHWAB

“PERSONALLY, I like the risk of creating something and making it successful… This is what a creator should be challenging himself to create something that people want to observe and learn more about. It’s not just fashion, it’s also an object that they want to invest in and own, have, look at.” – Marios Schwab (Business of Fashion)

In 2005, Marios Schwab launched his label. He rapidly was applauded by both the press and the buyers.

For the Spring/Summer 2015 his collection marked a decade on the schedule. The opening trench coat, actually box jacket with tone-on-tone pencil skirt. The clean cut and sculpted form apparently came from light cast across architectural landscapes, which accounted for the grays, grit and shots of azure sky. Masculine boxy jackets and city cuts were austere, yet the silhouette was softened with fluid and feminine in movement, particularly with the printed silk scarves and asymmetric hems.

Marios Schwab, your collection Spring/Summer 2015 was at risk but overcome the challenge. Congratulations.

THE VIRGIN SIBLING

Sibling Ready to Wear Spring Summer 2015 in New York

Sibling’s irreverent signature is even made sweeter this Spring/Summer 15 remembering “candy” sweet and bringing joyce on the catwalk. The collection served the 80’s optimism of New York City through the lenses of photographer Amy Arbus.

The spirit of dress and undress, in bed and out-of-bed that resonates deeply in Maripol’s work was keenly felt in the collection. Madge’s legendary “Like A Virgin” wedding dress was heavily referenced in the centre pieces of the collection.

Sibling’s theatrical treatment is unparalleled and, more impressively, the trio — Joe Bates, Sid Bryan and Cozette McCree — achieved high impact purely on the basis of their craftsmanship, proving season after season that resource is better spent on product than ostentatious presentation, especially among emerging brands.
