Obscur - "DISCIPLINE" - S/S 2013

Leave a Comment

Obscur- once again with great collection. The materials they mainly used for this collection are experimental paper-cottons, linen and cotton mixes, thin and airy horse leather skins and pure silver.

"Manipulated forms of altered human bodies foreshadows the lines of discipline. Skilled medical devices used to correct these deformations act as a balance between sterile material and the natural progression of time.
Wrapped bandages in organic shapes co-exist with metallic elements in order to dress the body while keeping it within an articulated form. Over-treated materials embody the wear of garment's over time while sleek textiles restrain the body whilst representing the pillar of modern day society."

InAisce - "Columna Cerului" collection - S/S 2013

Leave a Comment
Once more I stayed speechless when I seen InAisce upcoming collection for S/S 2013. With minimal palette that contains gray and black and edgy cuts and fits, it is obvious that Jona is in connection with spirit of east. Therefore his collection "Columna Cerului" is focused on research of inner soul.

"I saw this vision, clearly... I saw a man and a woman in my mind... I look... and suddenly walking towards me... as if they were going toward something that I can not even see... I see them in the dust. See their dust... a black mark on his forehead.. blue lanses in their eyes... Untouchable as a knife blade. I hear a noise... I see their lips move... I understand only a constant hiss... and nothing 'else."
Genesis, the vision of something that is coming, we do not know anything, we are attracted unconsciously, we fear, because we are not able to decipher, failing to establish a common communication that allows us to understand.
Genesis, a new beginning.

Ann Demeulemeester - S/S 2013

1 comment

For upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 we surely got new Ann style. From previous closed and hardened shells, this collection is something different. "Beauty can be frightening," said Ann Demeulemeester. She also said that she was inspired by "the duality of butterflies," solid bug versus ethereal wings. Just her version of butterflies is not just ordinary, it has Ann touch. "It was a process of being really clear, really focused, really sharp and really simple but still beautiful," said Demeulemeester after the show. Whole collection contains mystery filled with multi-stranded leather belts, light silk dresses with long light sleeves that are giving the effect of wings. Primary color in this collection is black with touch of mauve, cream and light mint. Awakening of butterflies.

Nicolas Andreas Taralis - S/S 2013

Leave a Comment

"I was thinking of faraway places," said Nicolas Andreas Taralis for his collection for S/S 2013. The colour palette was black, white, and grey, with chunky wedged boots and clumpy strands of hair signalling that this collection was would-be fodder for the edgy crowd. Tailoring was asymmetrical and organic. Raw edges gave pieces a worn-in feel. And last but not least, two sheer, breezy gowns – one black, one white – added the lightness the show needed and ended it on a strong, beautiful, note.
