  • Everlane
    Know your factories. Know your cost. Always ask why. While this pledge sounds like a good idea for a thriving workspace, at San Francisco based fashion label Everlane, it is also a pledge to the customers.

  • Candamill Fall 15
    Candamill‘s Fall 2015 collection sees a series of clean lines manifest as adornment. The accessories collection is a series of small, medium and larger-than-medium women’s hangbags, all minimally constructed and conceived. Using a strict palette of neutrally-muted leathers, together with metal accents, the shapes and resulting beautiful curation of pieces is a nod to their […]

  • Lernert & Sander x COS
    Lernert & Sander videos are remarkable not only for their eclectic nature and boundless exploration of themes; but also for their distinctive visual identity. The duo’s work is highly recognisable, especially their adoption of laboratory-like and monochrome aesthetics.

  • Melitta Baumeister SS16
    The latest Melitta Baumeister collection — created for Spring/Summer 2016 — stays true to the designer’s idiosyncratic artistic principles. All black and white with silhouettes partly deforming the female body, partly emphasising its specific shapes, Melitta Baumeister again manages to bridge the gap between experimental and minimalist wardrobe, between art and design.

  • Akris SS16
    The translation amongst design fields has always been difficult. But for designer Albert Kriemler of Akris, there was no hardship when it comes to his collection for Spring Summer 2016. Influential architect Sou Fujimoto serves as the main inspiration for the show, apparent through the minimal reinterpretation of the architect’s N House as the backdrop. Similar to […]

  • MAX.TAN SS16
    Serious but never severe, minimal but never simple, fragile but never weak. That is how Singapore based womenswear fashion label MAX.TAN describes the basics of their design. It is a description in which the inspiration for the Spring / Summer 2016 collection Thou shalt not is perfectly embedded. It plays with the notion of unachievable perfection. […]

  • THE ROW Resort 16
    Clean cut with an aura of mystique, highly luxurious but modest, conceptually considered but easy to grasp: The latest THE ROW collection pushes the elaborate design language of Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen to a point where they finally might be spared any reference to their childhood stardom. At least that’s what the CFDA panel might have […]
