Men’s / Voyager. Haider Ackermann AW18

Slide1

My love for Haider Ackermann is indescribable, really. His aesthetic, his style, his sensibility for colours and textures. The autumn-winter 2018 collection rotated somewhere around Moroccan souks and Japanese bath houses, at least this is how I’ve perceived it. Oriental, but not direct. Whether Ackermann’s man is a nearly mythical lifetime voyager or a guy from Paris wearing his velvet varsity jacket and high-waisted satin trackpants on the daily basis, I have the same feeling every season after seeing the designer’s show: I want to be, or at least look, like this man. Obsessed.

The Fusion of Stella Jean

DSC01052

Stella Jean fuses ethnical influences with daily silhouettes like no other. She keeps the right balance between wearable kitsch and oriental hand-made craftsmenship – warm wool chunky knits embroidered with Hindu jewels; beige A-shaped skirt with hand-painted illustrations; kimono wool cut and made in Tibet; silk pajamas with cozy prints of Taj Mahal. For AW15 Stella, together with Ethical Fashion Group, debuted bags – made in ethical way in India from papier mache. Although this might sound a bit crazy, but the bags are really good in it’s design and durability. If talking of the jewellery, it exudes with tropical heat,

In Milan, Stella Jean is strongly valued not only by the store buyers, but also by women which really wear her absolutely fantastic designs for casual occasions. Re-seeing the clothes after the Milan Fashion Week was a real pleasure of mine! Here are more photos taken by me.

After capturing the spirit of its iconic boutique with the Eau du Trente-Quautre perfume, Dyptique has now unveiled a collection of miscellaneous  products. Offering both liquid and solid perfumes, with a new Essence Insensée released each season, as well as scented candles and diffusers to fill your home with gentle fragrance. The brand has also branched out with an artistic line of stationery, presenting notebooks, cards and a calendar with geometric motifs. It’s simple, we want it all. The fragrances are very oriental, and remind us the smell of Arabian souks… and the photographs of these beauties make us certainly drool!

Sharply. JW Anderson Pre-Fall’14

Slide07I must admit, J.W. Anderson is smart. His androgynous fashion is definitely not time consuming for him- a week ago, on his menswear shows, Anderson showed panelled turtlenecks in different colours. And guess what- the same turtlenecks are for women in his Pre-Fall’14 collection. The collection feels a bit oriental with it’s kimono structures. The sharpness of all coats and dresses is… indeed sharp, hust like the title of this post. I also liked the colour palette that is very calm and delicate. Zennnnnnn…
