Valentino Spring 2019

  “I was thinking of paradises, about artists’ colonies of the past,” said designer Pierpaolo Piccioli at the Spring 2019 Ready to Wear show this season in Paris. Pierpaolo began to elaborate on the collection with cues to escapism, highlighting that he doesn’t believe in the tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, but

Hermes Spring 2019

A monolithic runway length mirror sat adjacent to the freshly-combed sandy catwalk as models serenely glided onto the stage for this season’s Hermes Spring 2019 show.  Every now and then wafts of powdery white clouds floated across the scene in an engineered masterpiece to resemble that of fluffy white clouds, it was something that only

This was my second very honourable invitation to

Jill Sander Resort 2019

  Upon one of my late night Insta scrolls, the recent Jill Sander Resort 2019 look book caught my eye.

Chanel Fall 2018 Ready to Wear

    There was something magic in the air this season at the Chanel Fall 2018 Ready To Wear show.  As you walked into the Grand Palais you were greeted by an eerie and beautiful enchanted forest, it something similar to from a Brothers Grimm children book.  Nine incredibly haunting trees stood centre stage, free

Louis Vuitton Spring 18

  On your average Tuesday evening at the Louvre, where history and art run deep,  Nicolas Ghesquière’s Spring 2018 collection for Louis Vuitton came to life. The ever so clever Ghesquière combined the modern with the historic. The medieval ground floor of the Louvre, contained walls lined with exposed bricks, highlighting the aspects of a fortress […]

Trend: Tonal

It’s no secret that adopting a tonal colour palette is one of 2017’s biggest trends. The seemingly minimalist trend emphasises a new modern aesthetic, complemented by sophisticated and delicately manipulated forms. Perfectly proportioned layering, with a focus on simple shapes and emphasised structure holds the key to mastering the mixed shades of neutral, along with the pairing of different textures […]

Anna Quan Resort 2016 at MBFWA

Anna Quan Resort 2016 – that French cuff shirt and other classics reimagined What makes a shirt a shirt, or a jacket a jacket? Thus yours truly found her mind wondering, while shuffling through the runway images I’d taken at Anna Quan’s showing at this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. The collection was characterised by its ritual deconstruction of traditional clothing archetypes. Her classic french cuff shirt from resort 2015 (which had already garnered viral popularity) was redesigned in a backless incarnation; a deceivingly simple halter dress was tailored as though it were a jacket, and with side seams ingeniously eliminated to highlight the cord ribbon and o-ring closure, the latter being an unifying element of the collection. The result was something that is in that tantalising entr’acte of being at once comfortingly familiar but unsettlingly novel. This, far from being a perversion of clothes making traditions, is perhaps the most transparent demonstration of a designer’s mastery of tailoring methods. ‘For me, it’s about utilising the traditional way of constructing something to build a story,’ designer, Anna Hoang commented, in her characteristically erudite manner (she is, after all, a member of our legal fraternity). ‘The hardest thing is having a conceptual […]
