Rick Owens - A/W 2014-15 - Womenswear

Leave a Comment
After male collection for A/W 2014-15 Rick Owens presented female line that has strong connection with male one. It's like closing the circle of his own world. For this show Rick choose his close relatives to walk on catwalk wearing his creations. How Mr. Owens explained - those were the women who have played a part in his live over the years... as friends, as employees, as models. Owens underlined a sense of continuity by having them walk more than once in the show wearing the same outfit. Confusing for the audience, until they grasped that this was a real circle of real lives.
Whole collection has strong connection with nature, family and unity all together gathered from all previous Rick Owens's work.

"Try and enjoy the serene benevolence of presenting a story of love."

Cedric Jacquemyn - "To The Depts Of The Last Reserve" A/W 2014-15

Leave a Comment
 On Paris fashion Week Cedric Jacquemyn presented his collection for Fall/Winter 2014-15.  This season, designer finds inspiration in loose threads, unfinished stories that demand a second take.
Playing with illusion and unexpected effects, he pursues his research on textures and contrasts, combining the rough with the soft, the pared-down with the intricate. Focusing on natural fibers -such as yak, alpaca, leather and linen- the Belgian designer goes back to the primitive notion of clothing as shelter, wrapping men into his soft and protective garments.
Reconnecting with our roots and the essence of clothing, he offers a spiritual and transient vision. Using tree bark on several pieces -an ancient weaving technique hailing from Uganda- Jacquemyn gets even closer to the organic nature of his work, pushing flux instead of stasis.
Introducing denim for the first time, Jacquemyn uses coating to give it a lived-in feel, simplifying details to the bare minimum. His jackets and coats are sleek and minimal, with hidden buttons and high necks, echoing monastic gestures...
