3.1 Phillip Lim F/W 2012
“It’s this idea of modern-day superheroes who are walking around us every day,” Phillip Lim said after his F/W 2012 show. But as any great designer the inspiration is really in the subtleties. It is not about reproducing a visual that already exists, but rather using it as a starting point to discover a new […]

Ostwald Helgason F/W 2012
Written by Guest Blogger Michele llanos The illusive and highly coveted label, Ostwald Helgason’s presentation last week showcased yet another collection where art, technology, history and textile experimentation combine to create a very specific end result.

Dean Quinn F/W 2012

VPL F/W 2012
Knitwear was definitely the highlight of¬† VPL’s F/W 2012. It was the first time I have seen Victoria Bartlett do knits and I think it was an obvious match for her jersey color-blocked signature pieces. Skin tight body-con meets constructed chunky knits was the the perfect combination!

Alexander Wang F/W 2012
¬†Alexander Wang was definitely marching to the beat of a new song for his F/W 2012 collection. This collection felt very different from what we have seen from him in the past.

Peter Som F/W 2012
Absolutely loving Peter Som’s F/W 2012 runway looks! The collection felt super contemporary but clearly inspired from a place of the past. “Marlene Dietrich’s balance of smouldering femininity and masculine garb was the starting point for the mood,” explained Peter Som. Strict shapes and strong monochromatic colors gave the collection the boldness
