SIMONS THE GATEWAY TO LONDON

The bar turned into a runway. Students, artists, designers, musicians, DJs, and fashion types all pressed together in the chaotic spirit of euphoria that Raf Simons wanted to whip up around the showing of his spring collection.

“I decided to come to London last year, because I felt the energy was incredible,” he said, while prepping a show at Printworks, a massive post-industrial newsprint factory

London, like the country, is a hurt animal, but it’s one that’s ready for release. Positives can be found within the negatives. He is probably talking about him hurt by the fashion Week in Paris and then in New York he is now trying London.

On tee shirts and dresses, he embedded prints of scrawled works by the late Ghent artist Philippe Vandenberg. I know his words are cruel, like, ‘Kill them all and dance,’ but he meant to kill things you’re doing creatively before moving on. Continue reading

ALAÏA AT THE MUSÉE PICASSO

On Monday, September 26th, Alaïa hosted a unique dinner at the Musée Picasso in Paris.

Friends of the house were invited to celebrate this exclusive collaboration between Alaïa and the Picasso Administration.

VILMORIN LOW FASHION

The designer is like a flame that we must fan, because without impetus it dies and becomes dusty. And if you let yourself look at your own genius while remaining passive, he dies, and all forget him in the silence of an intense pain that assails him. It was at the Folies Bergères, the mythical place of Parisian nights. Rochas with its complex codes, the little Vilmorin has difficulty in clinging to the philosophy of the house, his creation suffers cruelly from an identity crisis.

A fuchsia printed crop top and frou frou on the shoulder was accompanied by a skirt and trouser set and fought with a suit ivory check only wearable element in the subway. With heeled boots with laces, for an image of Pigalle not far from where the asphalt girls hung their customers, but when the designer thinks surrealism, he dreams of a pipe.

The fashion show ended with a transparent blouse and a hoop skirt. Vilmorin pure product of the asocial media more than anything else, the 25-year-old is still looking for his style. This cursed little painter has too big a job to do for his and someone else’s brand, and we shouldn’t expect more from him in my opinion. But history will tell if I was right or not. To the damned souls, value does not wait for the number of years either.

ARMANI THE ARTIST

In Giorgio Armani’s via Borgonuovo palazzo’s basement theater, models walked down the runway with an easterly breeze blowing through. Featuring gold-embossed bamboo poles, the invitation to the show revealed a collection inspired by sun-drenched climes and luxurious relaxation.

Despite the breezy and sometimes beachy silhouettes, models didn’t walk barefoot inside the palazzo. The girls wore sneakers, some of which were covered in iridescent fabric, as well as flat sandals and shoes.

Fashion designers in Europe are still pondering how to dress their post-lockdown customers, so they have turned to eveningwear and everyday glamour. Currently, they’re wearing sequins with sneakers, diaphanous fairy princess fabrics and biker boots, and embellishments and beading that were previously reserved for special occasions.

FUNERAL DECODING

As well as purity, pearls are also associated with tears and the British royal family. She previously wore the same coatdress to last year’s G7 summit in Cornwall, England, in white as well.

BURBERRY AND DANIEL LEE

Burberry is exploring a new creative path, and speaking to designers who could potentially replace chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci, whose contract expires in early 2023.

According to industry sources, one of those designers is Daniel Lee, who made an abrupt departure from the Kering-owned Bottega Veneta late last year, shortly after the brand’s spring 2022 runway show in Detroit, Michigan.

During its first-quarter results presentation in mid-July, Burberry said it was very happy with Tisci, and declined to comment on whether it was seeking to replace him. The sacred life force, invisible and powerful, contains the memory of the past and the vision of the future. It allows creation to manifest itself in matter here and now.
