Bodybound AW13 “Dawn of the Floating World”

Finalists at last year’s Hyeres Festival de la Mode, selected by Yohji Yamamoto. BODYBOUND duo Kim & Pliny prove yet again that menswear does not necessary have to be reserve in order to portray masculinity and sophistication in their AW13 collection.

Presenting “Dawn of the Floating World” inspired by Samurai ideals about physical presence. At a time when space comes at such a premium, to occupy a greater volume is the ultimate luxury and status symbol. Using luxurious felts and technical performance fabrics, the collection showcases detailed craftsmanship with their signature interpretation of transforming macrame and knitwear into a contemporary offering.

CHANEL 2013 – 2014 Cruise collection

Following, Venice, Saint-Tropez, Cap d’Antibes and the Bosquet des trois fontaines in Versailles, Karl Lagerfeld presented the CHANEL 2013/14 Cruise collection in Dempsey Hill, Singapore. With its eternal summer, tropical vegetation and exotic trips and  journeys, Singapore is the ideal platform for this spring ritual.

Disused buildings were redesigned with an air of the tropics with long galleries below the roofs, black and white blinds and refreshing whitewashed walls. As night fell Karl Lagerfeld took guests on a journey through time with his collection that mixes Mademoiselle Chanel in Deauville in 1913 with a colonial style.

In his debut prêt-a-porter collection for the house of Christian Dior, Creative Director, Raf Simons explores liberation themes both historical to the house and personal to himself.
Christian Dior established his house in 1947 and bucked fashioned trends prevalent during WW2  of a simplified, masculine style. Embracing the feminine body in  silhouettes together with movement, lightness, transparency and playfulness are key to the prêt-a-porter. Looking back to go forward and daring to disrupt the purity of shape and convention  is at the heart of the house of Christian Dior.

In the beginning, there was cobalt and kaolin. Then came Ming porcelain which evolved from being the preserve of Chinese Emperors to winning over Europe’s princely courts as early as the Sixteenth Century.

The colour of peace but, above all, a tint that has the power to combine everyday life with all the imaginative power of travel on your table. In Hermes creations for The House, the designs are directly inspired by nature. Nothing is rigid in these plates and cups. Here, geometric abstraction is the logical conclusion to this history of “blue-and-white”, made of endless comings and goings between Europe and the East.

This season, Brioni use a spectre of models originating from the worlds of art, fashion, photography, and international business, to unveil its Fall Winter 2013 collection.

As always, the product is King, demonstrated succinctly by a three-piece fitted suit made with a super fine wool stripe enriched with discreet 24 carat gold thread. Another highlight of the collection is “Foglia,” a softly constructed, knee-length coat, equally at home and chic over a suit or chunky cashmere sweater. Luxurious winter staples.

Dolce & Gabbana FW 13

The starting point of the Dolce&Gabbana Fall Winter 2013 women’s collection is the tradition of Sicilian Baroque, which has evolved in volumes and processes, experimenting in new cuts and decorations: Golden embroideries embodying Baroque mirrors and frames, embroideries of small dot points inspired by dining room tapestries; printed cherubs and angels that appear to emerge from a painting.

The cape, one of the more eminent feature of the collection, developed in entirely different proportions.

All three bags

‘Cut and Craft’ – the winners of Gucci’s paper craft competition are found

These bags are the three winners of Gucci’s social media competition ‘Icons of Heritage – Cut & Craft, launched on September 2 of this year. And we understand why! They are absolutely stunning – colourful, inventive and quirky to say the least.

Before we get into who made these divine bags however, let’s just briefly revisit the idea behind the competition: The concept behind this Gucci campaign was for fans to download the pattern of one of three iconic Gucci bags, and then make their version of one of them using paper and other materials. The competitors would then photograph the result and upload it to the competition’s dedicated Facebook page.

Thousands of submissions and votes later, the selection was narrowed down to nine beautiful recreations, and yesterday, Gucci’s creative Director, Frida Gianni selected the three winners.

From left to right:

‘Jackie’: Soyoung Jung of Korea
‘Stirrup’: Gerardo Larrea of Peru
‘New Bamboo’: Monia di Liello of Italy

The three bags are now featured as the cover image of Gucci’s Facebook Timeline, and the creators behind each of them will be receiving a complimentary Gucci handbag.

Good work and congrats!
