#throwback – London Collections: Men AW16

With London Fashion Week AW16 shows beginning in just 12 hours, we wanted to bring you a short article featuring some of our most favourite collections seen at London Collections: Men this January. This is our Thursday’s #throwback. Barbour Keeping up with the British heritage, Barbour kept the ‘country boy’ style vibe with casual and laid back details. Looking at ancient tartans, the collections keeps the cream, yellow and green shades within the colour palette. The garments are still kept very practical but sophisticated as Barbour classic aesthetic. Universal Works Setting the scene in funfair style, the attire at Universal Works was very layered and a mixed colour palette of dark, everyday colours. Loose-fitted trousers, shirts with layered workwear jackets, and turtle necks – keeping to the traditional vibe of the brand. Joshua Kane Each season Kane brings new tailored suits to the table. This season there were a lot of dark colours, embellished zips, furs, prints, buttons, gloves – all very detailed and tailored garments. The collection fit perfectly together and around with the detailing …

Chanel: Mademoiselle Privé

Written by Ludovica Colacino, photographed by Dominika Wojciechowska. Mademoiselle Privé. In case we needed another proof of Karl Lagerfeld’s incredible sense of aesthetic and understanding of Chanel – Saatchi Gallery hosted an exhibition about it – curated by the German designer himself. However, once we step into the first room, we do not intend it anymore as an exhibition alone, but rather a retrospective on Gabrielle Chanel and how her brand came to life. The first thing we see is Lagerfeld’s life-sized sketch of the woman behind the brand: it is almost as if she’s waiting for us at the door, welcoming to her home. The exhibition begins in the living room, giving us a sense of familiarity as we see the iconic mirror stairs, and books about Chanel on a few shelves; around them, a few camellias – the signature flower of the brand – are decorating the scene. We keep on walking through what was Gabrielle Chanel’s life as we enter the room designed to resemble her first boutique at the number 18 Place Vendôme. The sketched outlines of the dresses and …

LV: Series 3

Written by Ludovica Colacino, with accompanying photographs by Dominika Wojciechowska. 180, Strand – this is where the doors of the “Series 3” exhibition opened to the Autumn – Winter 2015 collection of Louis Vuitton. However, as soon as we turn around the corner, it’s clear that the exhibition doesn’t just show the finished product; the visitors witness the whole creation process, starting from the birth of the ideas of the fashion designer and creative director of the brand, Nicolas Ghesquière. The exhibition begins by walking through a white, aseptic, tunnel; at the end of it we access a round room with a black, low, mirror ceiling. At the core of the room there’s an open Louis Vuitton trunk – it is the container of over a century of ideas and secrets. The claustrophobic effect of the low ceiling is neutralized by the streaming of the images from the screens lining the round walls. Models, patterns, shoes, bags and intertwining geometrical shapes enlighten the room: that’s the genesis of the idea. From Ghesquierè’s mind, the idea is shared with the craftsmen: …
