Divka - "In progress" A/W 2016

Leave a Comment
Tokyo based label Divka presented collection for AW 2016-17 during the fashion week. "In progress" starts from designers own interest in the unique atmosphere that clothes-in-progress have in each process. Silhouettes are constructed based on the sense; free creation of raw edges, which later become the basis of the design, and giving an unexpected weight of fabrics. 
Also, the designer duo is guided by their own philosophy that the rules of clothes-making should be fixed, adjusted, and erased.
Divka is seeking to create clothes that are yet to be known.

Yunseo Choi - S/S 2016

Leave a Comment
Fresh out of London’s Royal College of Art, Yunseo Choi’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection is a harbinger of high fashion’s future. With this collection, Choi discards the archetypes of menswear, favoring instead a distinctly futuristic aesthetic reminiscent of android warriors.
Collection contains of sleek and minimal bottoms paired with highly sculptural top — all feature varying plastic structures formed from triangles. Very monochrome and 'sterile', the collection is evocative of medieval armor yet does not overemphasize its military inspiration. Instead of playing off that fashion cliché in a way that’s obvious, Choi presents a dystopian future of robotic warfare and bionic soldiers.
This very futuristic oriented collection made Choi distinguished from others in this very crowded and ruthless world of fashion. For sure, looking forward seeing more of her creations in the near future.

Lian Michel Zarecki is name behind amazing jewellery label LaguzAlgiz. Founded in 2015, Zarecki has spent years exploring before deciding to create their own name.

Having an affinity for minerals since the childhood, and gaining the inspiration from a personal life, fantasy novels and all the magical things, Zarecki decided to open the gates of own magical world and share the creations with the rest of us:
"I decided to bring this love of fantasy to my jewelry, to encourage everyone who ever wished they were magical to decorate themselves magically."

Specialized in Viking Knit (hand woven wire also known as Trichinopoly), the young designer try to incorporate this beautiful art of craftsmanship into their own work.
"I learn as I work and I sell my one of a kind items as I finish producing them. I go through phases of materials, exhausting them and moving onto something different. I love making one off’s inspired by some trinket I picked up at an Antique shop or working with friends to make them something they’ve always wanted to wear. And to create all that by just using hands and hammer is what creates the real magic. Each day a new inspiration, a new story."

Check out the LaguzAlgiz collection entitled “Of Copper and Crystal” that has a minimalist design approach with a pretty metal that doesn't get worn in its natural state as often as it should.
