It’s 2016 and I have set up 3 golden rules for myself.
#1: Never leave the house without Bleu De Chanel by CHANEL.
#2: Turn up and never turn down.
#3: Stay hood rich with or without Atelier New Regime.
A Montreal based street wear brand styled for the modern man, Atelier New Regime is committed to redefining the customer experience as we know it. Through the quality of its product, presentation and lifestyle, ANR pushes the creative envelope leaving a unique and thought-provoking impression on the consumer. Over time, Atelier New Regime has grown to be more than clothing. It has evolved into an artistic movement run by a collective of “creatives” whose aim is to express themselves through fashion. And especially the white “Hood Rich” shirt is everything I need right now. Pictures via Atelier New Regime Model: Emile Woon – Photography: Yan Bleney – Styling: Alex Axenova – Mua: Isabella Forget
Ok, so I have been away cuz I really wasn’t feeling that good. But that doesn’t mean that I am not watching my followers. I. see. you. and. I. watch. you. And I mean a couple of people, brand and labels but this time it’s all about SYNTHETIK. Although this brand has a dark touch to it, the collections are always shining bright. SYNTHETIKis basically a label for any boy or girl having any age, at any time and at any place. So clothes for any given moment in life, well, maybe a more melancholic moment in life. But everybody needs some black clothes every now and then. However, I am still watching this brand and expect you guys to post some more on your Facebook page. Thx. Bye.

Hello, it’s me.
I am back. And I bet you thought you’d seen the last of me (haaa kidding). But after my New York trip I had to chill for a bit and figure shit out. And what’s a better way for a “comeback” then bringing some news straight out of Parsons: Ximon Lee x H&M!
24-year-old Parsons graduate Ximon Lee picked up the H&M Design Award earlier this year. And he finally had the opportunity to develop his collection and sell it at select H&M stores this fall (available since 22nd october). I remember when I frist saw his collection all over Tumblr and I was trying so hard to find information about Ximon Lee and I couldn’t find any. And one year later finding his fashion pieces all over the internet.
However, Ximon created stuff for both mens- and womenswear, where he is concentrating on structure, fabric and volume for oversized silhouettes that capture the best qualities of denim. Take a look: Pictures via H&M
Returning to my home away from home soon. And with home I mean New York City. The city I used to live in and will never be forget. That’s why I had to bring some New York flavor to this blog.
ECKHAUS LATTA is a New York based fashion label designed and executed by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta. The two met while attending the Rhode Island School of Design, where they studied Sculpture and Textile Design, respectively. After graduating (BFA 2010), they designed and worked with many labels, artists and institutions including Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Matthew Barney, Opening Ceremony, The Ratti Textile Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and threeASFOUR. Together in 2011, Mike and Zoe founded ECKHAUS LATTA.
The Designers release collections semi-annually during NYFW. In addition to their shows and presentations, Eckhaus Latta produces videos with the director Alexa Karolinski to further contextualize their collections. The brand has also participated in various artists collaborations including: designing uniforms for Dora Budor’s piece at the 55th Venice Biennale, an edition of Deodorant with the trend-forecasting agency K-HOLE supported by Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler Gallery in Berlin, a collection for Bjarne Melgaard’s show at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise and outfits for Xavier Cha’s Fruit Machine at the New Museum. This past summer their work was included in the Museum of Art and Design’s NYC Makers Biennial and they will be premiering their SS15 collection video at MOCA in January.
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.
I seriously think that there is nothing more beautiful then putting his own illustration, his own handwriting on somebody’s art. May sound crazy, but here is what I mean: like for example when an illustrator is changing a fashion editorial and gives it his/her own personal touch. And real talk, from what I have seen in the fashion industry, it’s taking it to a whole nother level most of the time.
This is what happend for a fashion editorial by Wunderkind with a little magic of illustrator IZAIZA. Don’t get me wrong the campaign itself is absolutely amazing, but with IZAIZA’s art it just got a little more umpf, if you know what I mean?!
IZAIZA lives and works as an artist in Hamburg/Germany. She has been working as a freelancer art director/ graphic designer since 2005 for a variety of agencies, corporate clients and music labels like whatpeopleplay and wordandsound. An illustration is a visualization or a depiction of a subject made by an artist, such as a drawing, sketch, painting, photograph, or other kind of image of things seen, remembered or imagined, using a graphical representation. And she knows what she’s doing. Check this shit out:
