Paul Smith S/S 2011

In Clothes, Fashion Designers on October 18, 2010 at 6:06 pm

Another easy collection, most of it menswear inspired. Apart from the floral prints which are not my cup of tea I would wear most of it. Is it exciting and new? Not really, but it is classic and classy and most of it timeless. Really like the rough look that the hair, the glasses and the belts give to the models.

Suit Yourself

In Clothes, Editorial on October 18, 2010 at 5:54 pm

Suits, I personally love to see editorials when guys look all groomed up and there is not a string of hair out of the place, great glasses, bow-ties, crisp white shirts and a good suit.

Balenciaga S/S 2011

Another great collection from Nicolas Ghesquière, it follows the same lines of the previous one, I would love to see it in person to appreciate the textile details and the intricate work that goes into them. I really like the fact that the collection looks easy and casual even though it has a tremendous amount of detail.

Martin Margiela S/S 2011

Are the clothes wearable? That depends on how bold you are, personally I believe they are incredible for editorial purposes, the construction is beautiful and the effect great. They remind me of Erwin Wurm and his works. Could I pull some of this off on the street? Not that sure, certainly some of the pieces can be worn on a daily basis and the other will be adapted from the show into something slightly more casual, nevertheless the concept and the craftsmanship is incredible.

My latest favorite editorial and probably going to be a part of my top 10 favorites. It is absolutely brilliant. So simple yet so powerful. If you have not bought the french vogue that includes this one you seriously have to. Had not seen such a great selection of editorials in a while.

Viktor&Rolf S/S 2011

In Clothes, Fashion Designers on October 16, 2010 at 12:42 pm

The ones that never disappoint and seem to explode with new ideas every season. Loved the colour combinations, the fabrics, the construction of the pieces, the hair, the makeup, the shoes. Hats off to the both of you.

Some of my new work for this months Parq Magazine. It is available now to download online and will be available next week in the usual places around Lisbon in the printed version.
