Leutton Postle

Luxury knitwear label Leutton Postle is comprised of long‐time friends and collaborators Sam Leutton and Jenny Postle. The pair met at Central Saint Martins in 2005 on their BA.

On completion of her studies, Stockport native Sam worked in knitwear innovation in Shanghai before returning to London to work as an independent designer. Jenny was raised in the Wolverhampton before moving to London to study at Central Saint Martins. Her MA collection was bought by leading boutique Browns Focus and has garnered universal praise from the international fashion press. This prompted her to join forces with Sam to form Leutton Postle in 2011.

Leutton Postle draws on a range of influences to create wearable, craft-led collections that are unlimited by trends. Their design approach freely embraces colour, unusual surface texture and rich pattern to create beautifully offbeat knits for women. Leutton Postle represents a labour of love and a shared creative vision that can be seen in the extraordinary attention to detail in each garment.

Stone. Water. Piano.

Stone. Water. Piano.

I would never expect these three words put together to make so much sense, but Korean designer CY CHOI makes it happen. And that’s what this brands stands for: differentiation of the objects from the exclusive line and shifting boundaries into a new direction. Launching this brand for menswear in Paris back in 2009,  CY CHOI melts his values that agonizes the possibility of transformation between art and design and seeks after visualizing the invisibleness with his own mimesis from the past.With his FW14 collection “Figure” Cy stays true to his signature black and white style and at the same time is taking it to another level of greatness.
Uhhh, I want this:

The Shit I’m Wearing: Riding Dirty

They see me rolling, they hating, they trying to catch me riding dirty…

That’s exactly how I felt when I had the chance to test drive Jaano. Never heard of it? Well, that’s what I am here for.
Founded by the two friends Jaan Hofmann and Tino Hoffrichter, Jaano is offering scooter sharing to everybody living in Hamburg (and it will probably spread out to your city soon, so just watch out). It’s the perfect solution for traffic and transportation in urban areas, since you can rent the scooter for as much time as you need and just park wherever. No strings attached, because you pay for the time you use the Jaano scooter and wherever you find one of these you can hopp on and off anytime. The concept is simple and genius at the same time! You just have to register (and of course have a driver’s licence and stuff like that) and off you go.

And since I am a huge fan of it, I did put on my good outfit and got myself up on that  Vespa Primavera 50 4T 4V. Take a look (a little posing never hurt nobody)! VROOM VROOM!
Jaano Weekday weekday I don't give a fuck Jaano JaanoThe idea is dope as fuck and you will definitely gonna catch me riding on this in Hamburg, so make sure you like Jaano on Facebook!

And btw: wanna shop the look? Here you go:
1. Sweater: Weekday (it’s on sale)
2. Shirt: Asos
3. Jeans: Cheap Monday
4. Shoes: Superga
5. Socks: Bought them in Patrica Field‘s store in NYC and I couldn’t find them online...

Chapter 2

I was mesmerized by Chapter 1, but Chapter 2 is just as dope.

For the cold season MISBHV goes back to where they re from in an effort to bridge the gap between the grainy Eastern Block nostalgia and the energy of New Europe. Instead of shooting a studio lookbook the brand is taking it to the streets of cities they love – Paris, Warsaw and New York!  And offering shearling coats, wool coats, biker jackets, all 3M reflective jackets alongside suede and neoprene pieces, this collection is in my opinion one of the best ones yet.

And I am ready for a Chapter 3: New York!

Saint Alexander

This designer does not need an introduction, because her collection speaks for itself:
Alexis Tiganila is the menswear designer behind the label Saint Alexander with an artist’s point of view.  Born in NYC, but grew up in the forest of Connecticut, Alexis graduated from Parsons the New School for design and has also spent time studying abroad at Central Saint Martins in London. Alexis likes to work intuitively, striving to portray emotion visually through print and color. Inspired by the people she has met, Alexis takes a unique approach to exemplifying her past while constantly aiming for the new.

And that’s what she did for her FW14 collection “La Collectionneuse” where Alexis is inspired by gypsies and her own experiences.  For Artsy Magazine she explains:
“My thesis journey began with an interest in gypsies. I have always been passionate about the romantic idea of traveling with your belongings from one place to another while escaping reality. To make my collection more personal, I wanted to bestow upon the garments my own memories. In this way, the wearer would be taking my ‘caravan of experience’ with them where ever they go. The collection title, “La Collectionneuse,” is derived from the 1967 film by Eric Rohmer, about a woman name Haydée, who spends her summer playing a game of collecting relationships and men she meets along her way.”

She likes to use mixed media to create an ambiance for her garments. With appliqués on jackets like collages, original all prints, a transparent trench coat, bomber jacket, a skate board with the same print, sneakers and denim, she takes it to another level. Good stuff! Point blank and period.
