SADE English - "Skin" collection

Leave a Comment

Sade English, graduate from London college of Fashion, studied Fashion Design Pattern Cutting and created her own label at the age of 21. Creative directing, manufacturing, styling as well as taking control of all aspects, her execution has formed her signature style which has become well known in the fashion industry. English's singular element signifies the counter-stereotype from having a "anti-clone" ideology, which prevents Sade English garments from falling into categories like womenswear or menswear, not even unisex.
"Men and Women especially in today's society are disappointed of their reflection, It's about time men and women accept their individualism amongst an army of clones."

Leave a Comment

For A/W 2014-15, Rei Kawakubo done one more "object" collection. In constant search of new inspirations and original creations, Kawakubo decided not to make strict fittings on the body; collection is pile of objects to go beyond the body, to reformulate what fashion is to the designer. Also designs for upcoming season have monstrous and macabre look that looks like it was influenced by Japanese horror movies.
"It's not about the typical Monster you find in sci-fi and video games. The expression of the Monsters I have made has a much deeper meaning. The craziness of humanity, the fear we all have, the feeling of going beyond common sense, the absence of ordinariness, expressed by something extremely big, by something that could be ugly or beautiful. In other words, I wanted to question the established standards of beauty."

Tsolo Munkh - A/W 2014-15

Leave a Comment

Mongolian designer Tsolmandakh Munkhuu a.k.a Tsolo Munkh returned to her roots and legends with new collection. Designer explains that she got on spiritual journey and drawn inspiration from visual and Buddhists images and combining 'em with art elements.

"Like a shamanic voyage across several lives, and that has multiple initiations, textile techniques evolve little by little.
The unusual felt, carded sheep’s wool stretching across a honeycombed leather structure, is wet and kneaded, becoming something new.
The leather and the woven wool, the fibres metamorphosed thanks to a game of folding, reveal astonishing poetic forms.
The volumes are made clear with an extreme stylisation. Certain pieces are reversible or able to be positioned at will. The coats are adorned with specific, sometimes oversized collars; the waistcoats bristle with strips of leather, the dresses come to life by their yokes and their cut. Leather is omnipresent.
Every detail counts, from the shoulder of a coat, to the knee of a trouser, topstitching which reveals a dragon. The myths and legends of Mongolia reappear. Transformations and metamorphoses show themselves to be primordial."
