Newspaper print

The newspaper print is making a come back.

Designer Elsa Schiaparelli made this print debut in the ’30’s, until John Galliano incorporated it in his collection in early 2000 which also made it onto the most fashionable show on tv, Sex & the City. Carrie Bradshaw rocked it in Galliano’s newspaper print dress. An iconic moment that is never to be forgotten.

Fast forward to 2019/ 20, the newspaper print is making a comeback. DVF, Calvin Klein, Balenciaga are amongst the designers sharing the news of the day!

CHRISTIAN DIOR – Designer of Dreams @ The Victoria and Albert Museum, London

 Diors, Designer of Dreams retrospective is currently on display at The Victoria and Albert Museum, London starts with Dior’s birth and takes us right through to its current direction under artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri.
The collection of haute couture was previously on display at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. 

”The influence of Christian Dior’s design was all-pervasive and helped to define an era”, says curator Oriole Cullen. ”In their own individual ways, each of the House’s successive artistic directors have references and reinterpreted Dior’s own designs and continued the legacy of the founder, ensuring that the House of Christian Dior is at its forefront of fashion today.”

Oliver Spencer Men’s SS2020

 

Oliver Spencer’s spring 2020 collection was inspired by the vibrant atmosphere of Hong Kong’s famous night markets..

The collection pays hommage to Wong Kar-Wei’s “In the Mood for Love,”  aesthetically rich film set in 1962.

Burnt orange and the varying shades of green that Wong employed in the film combined with Spencer’s signature muted blues and grays to great effect. Modern tailoring is integral in this collection. Striking colours including a cerulean blazer teamed with an air force blue shirt, collar worn over the jacket’s lapels.

Belted safari jackets with ankle-flashing cuffed trousers, both in linen, the first look in a fresh ecru, the last in a sumptuous teal.

ICEBERG SS20 – LFWM COLLECTION

ICEBERG since 1974 @Lfwm19 #ICEBERG1974

‘Going underground, going underground. Well, let the boys all sing and let the boys all shout for tomorrow.’

 

At the truman buildings on day 2 #lfwm. There is an air of positive rebellion at ICEBERG for SS20 where youth tribes and cuultures meet and combine in hyoer colour and monochrome. Where, in the imagination of James Long, the Punks of Kings Road hang out with the Sloanes and Hoorays of Knitghtsbridge and South Kensington Goths.

Kicking off with ICEBERG x PETER BLAKE who’s instantly recognisable riot of pop-art graphics cover shirt and trouser full looks, mini dresses and easy knits. His seminal Babe Rainbow and Amerika artworks(a technically intricate sweater of bird’s -eye intarsia, jacquard and embroidery) , hearts, rainbows and Mod target unify across clothes and accessories and are reflected in see -now-buy-now ICEBERG X Linda Farrow shades.

Colour blocked fluid maxi looks in satin, chiffon and crepes for her and Cupro wash -effect silk joggers and matching bomber in a soft turquoise for him. Name belts, vibram sole trainers, trouser legs, necks and ears are adorned and drip with chains: Le Goth Sportif

The high shine of a Mod ‘tonic’ suit morphs into silver zip jackets, Bermuda shorts, and bungee tied trousers. A tee shirt is bound tightly with the same intergral ropes. For the ICEBERG woman Tonal Punky Flower orchids climb over chic tailoring into fluro primaries on white. Worn with crisp shirts and a matching tie sheis the Mod in modern.

MALAN BRETON AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Malan Breton AW19 – London Fashion Week

          ‘Cine Malan’ – Cinematic drama , based on the story of actress, Norma Desmond.

            The House Of Malan Breton, was a journey through a nostalgic world of 1920s characters. The atmosphere was incredible… moving from room to room observing incredible looks in leather , tulle, sequins, and  sharp tailoring.  

       

He takes on his own twist to the traditional trench with a megawatt metallic finish in gunmetal, contrasted with the soft piping of faux fur. Taiwanese embroidery techniques are deeply sewn and rooted into the seams as well his soul. Gowns intensely hand-sequined in rich reds and bold burgundies. Leather adorned in Swarovski crystals and Japanese fresh water dying are a few of the masterful techniques used to create the luxuries of this collection.

       
Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, Keira Chaplin was part of the cast for the presentation. Wearing an Incredible red tulle gown. 

Malan ;“What if we could know the stories of the mad man, the other side of life as told by victims, what if we could know the pain, the suffering, the loss and abandon that bring the antagonists to madness. What if in this exploration of psyche we learn that the evil, the unkind were once pure. What if we knew their joys, and could save them before their last moments.
