Valentines Day started with the Asia Fashion great collective show which featured a great amount of up-and-coming talent! I saw incredibly modern menswear, interesting layering, fabulous avant-garde knits, new fabrics, and insightful mix of tradition and technology.
Avant-gardeness runs through the whole fashion week, and that was the case with debuting designer Pedram Karimi who stressed through imaginative creations the powerful neutrality of the nude shade along with other normcore colors accentuated by structured forms and extraordinary shapes. At the same show, Rosenthal Tee presented the feminine look with a strong twist seen in cropped tops combined with culottes, and beautiful dresses. She experimented with black and sheerness in a rather insightful way!
Custo Barcelona FW16 was one of the best shows I’ve seen from the brand with refined versions of the signature patchwork idea, great color combos, expensive high-quality materials and the addition of the sexy geeky vibe which is prevalent this season, especially the geeky optical frames mixed with cooler stuff! It was wearable, attention-grabbing and sophisticated!
Runa Ray was about a raw idea of beauty but also traditional fabrics and artisanal details! It is fascinating by the way a plain piece of paper can be folded and unfolded until it becomes its purpose. That was the main idea in the collection drawing element from the art of origami.
Vivienne Hu revealed the naughty side of the upper east girl, with bustiers, decolletes, cut outs, slits and other skin-baring elements! It’s the confident girls going out for a stroll wearing statement-making clothes and accessories!
