Looks for Twin Peaks Life


Miu Miu pre-fall’17

I guess we’ve all watched the same thing yesterday evening – Twin Peaks 2, of course. David Lynch is in great, twice edgier and even more eccentric form, and we really did meet 25 years later… so, after the first have episodes aired, it’s quite the right time to think of alternative, matching Twin Peaks looks of the season. I mean from this literal season (autumn-winter 2017, for the concerned ones), not from some another, Lynchian dimension.


Prada autumn-winter 2017

Miuccia Prada has mentioned Lynch many times, while discussing her collections. His portrait of female characters is just the right amount of elusive femme fatale style and cardigans – read: a Prada woman in American suburbs.


Balenciaga autumn-winter 2017

Those voluminous coats with strange buttonings by Demna Gvasalia will surely get your hands twisted and feel like from another time lapse.


Saint Laurent autumn-winter 2017

Anthony Vaccarello has accidentally created a perfect, modern-day Laura Palmer dress.


Brock Collection autumn-winter 2017

This one’s from the episodes. That outfit is so, so the principal’s wife look, pre- and post-murder. No spoilers! Watch yourself to get it right.

Killer. Tom Ford AW17


Although Tom Ford has resigned from the see-now buy-now business strategy, that doesn’t mean he feels dissapointed – his autumn-winter 2017 look-book is the best prove for that. Atrakhan scrotum bags, metallic square-toe heels, empowering fur coats, sequinned turtlenecks, multi-coloured tights, PVC jackets… those are the clothes to kill and to kill for. ‘Cocktail dress’ sounds pretentiously, but according to Ford it’s a timeless go-to piece for every evening event. Whether in black velvet and with over-sized shoulder-pads or as a kimono hybrid, the designer goes burning hot this season with lenghts and silhouettes.

Post-Apocalyptic. Dilara Findikoglu AW17


Wether you’re thinking of a Bulgakovian witch sabbath at the top of the hill or of a medieval painting presenting hell full of sinners, Dilara Findikoglu‘s show-stopping garments certainly are for very bad, bad girls (and above all,  for red-haired femme fatales à la the designer herself). For her autumn-winter 2017 collection, the Turkish designer went for anything that felt rebellious and bizarrely out-of-this-world at the same time. A tattered, worn-out-looking tartan coat held together by safety pins was a clear nod to punk; witchy symbolism and mystic illustrations present in embroideries covered Tudor-esque capes and semi-armors. Although Dilara has a soft spot for historic costumes – and especially their exaggerated silhouettes – she’s not interested in making glossy couture. Findikoglu rather sees her “new world order” clothes on a Marilyn Manson bride and bold characters, who are tempted by her truly unique aura. The models, transformed into fantastical female goddesses with horns and other charming oddities, looked as if they came out of a Hieronymus Bosch canvas. Exceptional.
