• Dion Lee RTW SS16
    Dion Lee‘s Ready-to-Wear Spring / Summer 2016 offering is nothing short of simple cool. The Sydney-based Australian Designer has been challenging the forms of fashion since he entered the arena as a serious contender. This collection is clearly no exception. Described as business girls gone bad the collection sees a series of structured blazers, dresses, […]
  • 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. Five years ago Everlane founder Michael Preysman quit his job in venture capital to turn his passion for design […]

  • 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. A true exploration of what a controlled ambient can bring to the table, with a firm tongue […]

  • Black Merino 2
    The result of a fascination with continuity, longevity and timelessness, Black Merino 2 is the third collection from the stylish Polish apparel brand THISISNON. Incorporating high-tech thermo insulation for better comfort, the collection is a true embodiment of THISISNON’s manifesto—simple, perfectly tailored clothes for everyday life. The brand offers only a few essential pieces and encourages respect for natural resources […]
  • 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. Her ongoing collaboration […]

  • 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 […]

  • Chiyome FW15
    New York City-based women’s accessories brand Chiyome is launching their new Fall/Winter ’15 collection this September.

  • Anna Michaelis
    The archaic, radical simplification and the visual ambivalence of a convincing, self-evident extreme. All this comes together in Anna Michaelis’ graduate collection. To complete her fashion design studies at the University of the Arts Berlin, she went right back to the beginning of clothing and closely examined the features of a simple object: the cloth. […]

  • Scott Benedictine
    Scott Benedictine‘s latest Debut Capsule Collection epitomises the brand’s ethos of slow fashion. The idea that the garments that we ornament ourselves with, that which we choose to use as a way to express our personalities actually has some deliberation. Rarely do we question the origins or the processes behind how and where such adornings […]
