- Fabric Behaviour : Greek Insurrection and Wet Dresses
Showcased in 1986, John Galliano’s “Fallen Angel” collection became part of a millennium narrative by the extreme sheerness of one of its key pieces. Before mesh, silk organza or any fabric used to play on transparency, raciness in fashion was indeed channeled through a different media. From greek marble to cotton voile, dresses of all time conveyed the brazen tales of their wearers, emphasising the importance of clothing in art.
- SS22 : How Dune is Changing Fashion
“Everyday we hear the echos of scientific apocalypses that predict the collapse of balance within our ecosystems, but we don’t seem to feel its pain, living fully convinced that our mastering of technology ensures we no longer have a need for nature. […] Humanity has always had a tendency to defy the gods,” declared Denis Villeneuve in his preface to Dune’s newest print edition. While the 2021 film was eagerly anticipated throughout its Covid caused tardiness, it would seem fashion houses have already taken its costumes’ codes by storm.

- Simone Rocha x H&M : A troubled saga
“When H&M came to talk, I said, if I’m going to do it, I want to do it for everybody, not only women, but for men and children — and to make sure they get the quality.” Released on March 11th of 2021, H&M’s latest high fashion line, in collaboration with Irish designer Simone Rocha, broke the internet. Since its first instance in 2004 with Karl Lagerfeld, the Swedish brand has been used to putting out one to two lines made with renowned fashion designers a year, a habit that has pleased many customers over the years. However, if these frequent collaborations have led H&M to work with labels such as Balmain, Maison Margiela or Comme des Garçons, the retail giant is facing many critics regarding the execution of its collections.
- Alber Elbaz 1961-2021
An hommage to Alber Elbaz.
“It was not the story of design or clothes, it was the fantasy of women that made me want to work in fashion.”
Head of the Lanvin creative team for 14 years, the Moroccan-born Israeli fashion designer passed away at age 59. To commemorate the incredible work the couturier created during his years at Lanvin (from 2001 to 2015), we bring you a selection of magnificent pieces from this extraordinary designer. A loss that has saddened us to the core, though this star soaring through the drapppy dresses he once made will be remembered for good.
