RIHANNA "SETS IT OFF" AT BERGDORFS

It’s every designer’s dream to have their collection be carried at Bergdorf Goodman,” Rihanna proclaimed Tuesday afternoon at a frenzied personal appearance for the retail unveiling of her fall Fenty by Puma collection.

The Barbadian singer was joined by Bergdorf president Joshua Schulman and “homegirl Linda,” senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation Linda Fargo — as a contingent of Rihanna fans swarmed the retailer’s fifth floor, tunes blaring.

The majority of attendees appeared to be students from nearby fashion universities, including the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design.

While scheduled for 3 p.m., the event didn’t start until nearly two hours past its call time — leaving some attendees with a dilemma.

Ariana, a 20-year-old student at FIT, said she was “debating if I should skip class, I have merchandising math at 5:10.” Spotted an hour later, it appeared that she had.

“I want to get the creepers,” Ariana said of her intentions for staying — noting that the continuously sold-out style is a must-have item amongst the FIT student body. “Before this, no one was buying Puma. [Rihanna] managed to make it big again,” she added.

Aasha, a 19-year-old New School student and intern for Alastair McKimm — who styled the fall Fenty for Puma campaign, already has a pair of creepers. She was in the room to nab one of the collection’s fur hoodies. “I like the collection — it is a mix of edgy and girliness at the same time.”

Whitney Lam, founder of the women’s lifestyle blog Nitrolicious, summed up Fenty’s popularity: “Anything Rihanna touches becomes popular. There is not really women’s streetwear like this produced with a big brand.”

Within 15 minutes of Rihanna’s ribbon-cutting, Bergdorf’s stock of shoes had sold out, as well as much of its apparel.

Schulman in his opening remarks at the event said, “The whole world is talking about ath-leisure, but here at Bergdorf’s we are all about ath-glamour.”

Discussing the decision to welcome Rihanna to Bergdorf’s, Schulman told WWD, “For us, Rihanna is an icon and when we first saw the [Fenty fashion] show Linda Fargo and I were so excited about it because we really felt that our customer would love this. It’s a very sexy, very modern approach to activewear.

“Ultimately for all of us, the celebrity association is nice, but it’s all about the product and we knew this type of product would speak to our customer.”

Fashion Week Paris Couture Fall-Winter 2016-2017 Maison Margiela

fswpa101.15fr-highres

Innocence, risk, comfort, and protection. For the Autumn Winter 2016-17 Artisanal collection, creative director John Galliano explores a modern reinvention of haute couture through his most personal interpretation of Maison Margiela’s esprit to date. Evoking an illustrative line, aristocracy is decontextualized through an urban lens. Explosive and colourful gestures of authentic fabrics snake and kerb around the body with an Empire line, tweaked and transitioned in modern gestures of protection and ecstatic abandon. Archetypes are reconfigured with rigor and romance, where a blurring of sartorial trappings meets the banal.

fswpa101.08fr-highres

A sense of the incredible and the impossible spins throughout the Artisanal collection, where fantasy is tempered by the jarring authenticity of today’s reality. Our translation of a collective consciousness stretches further than ever before, invoking a timeless array of commonplace ephemera and things strangely familiar.” – Maison Margiela

MATERIALS
From fine muslin to resin-wax cottons or ripstop nylon, the rub of unprecious and delicate textiles is inherent to the collection’s tapestry of innovation and artisanal heritage. Opposing notions of feminine and masculine textiles are questioned and reconfigured with irreverence. Technical nylons meet Scottish wool from the Outer Hebrides, and motorcycle leathers bridge textiles woven from delicate cotton ribbons. Ornament appears as a ‘Toile de Jouy’ fabric, curvilinear ‘tribal’ studded motifs crossing swathes of knotted and padded wools, and celluloid bird appliqués decorating heavy plaid. A ‘cherubim’ lace is constructed from hundreds of minute individual fragments: it represents the technical apex of the Maison’s artisanal savoir-faire.

fswpa101.07fr-highres

TECHNIQUE
The seminal proposal of outerwear styles flip upside-down from an inverted stance of arching volumes to become a traditional coat shape. Garments betray multiple identities; assembled together from familiar archetypes to become layered hybrids with double lapels and undefined endings and beginnings. A windcheater is carved with the convex curve of a Watteau back; a banker’s stripe shirt is spun into a sweeping train. An intricate cartography of eaves and cornices forms a gown in vacuum-formed smoky plastic, another springs to life patched with Nick Knight’s British Birds (2008).

PALETTE
A burst of primary colours elevates the drab of tweed shades, as scarlet, emerald, sky blue, and sunshine yellow shine against charcoal, forest green, mustard, and chocolate brown. Mid-century pastels like ice blue and lemon sorbet fizz amongst the monochromes.

fswpa101.17fr

ACCESSORIES
Intricate hoop earrings and ornate bracelets are hand-carved in Portugal from walnut, pear and boxwoods, and chandelier crystals appear as blood red chokers, embellished goggles, and a primary-coloured contour bra top. The original Maison Margiela deep-cleft ‘Tabi’ boot returns as a thigh-high cuissard with a new moulded rubber sole, alongside trekking-inspired sandals, fantasy hand-painted clogs, and a masculine riding boot.

Fashion Week Paris Couture Fall-Winter 2016-2017 Ralph & Russo

fswpa92.19fr.jpg

Presenting a sylvan scene that emulates the perfection and chaos of nature’s enchanted realms, the Autumn Winter 2016/2017 collection is alive with cascading blossoms, laser-cut butterflies, dewy tulle sheaths and metallic dragonflies. A renewed interpretation of a fantastical wilderness and its binaries, the collection pursues the intersection between dusk and dawn, the romantic and the mystique.

From draped satins and floor-sweeping organza trains with voluminous frills, to shades of 70’s bohemia present in smocking, oversized hats, braiding and fringing; our woodland muse is femininity in motion. A silken silhouette embroidered and delicately hand painted with blooms reminiscent of the 19th century Italian tapestries found in the Villa Necchi Campiglio.

Tailored jackets in ice-white cashmere feature alongside a nightshade satin bomber adorned with hand cut mink pom-poms. Plunging stalactite necklines and cocoon capes are illuminated with bronze, silver and gold, iridescent in the changing light.

fswpa92.32fr.jpgKaleidoscopic and euphoric in tone, autumnal burgundy and midnight blue silk-zibelines are infused with a muted, subtle palette of cornflower, apricot, lavender and dusky rose chiffons. Evergreen shades of flora and fauna are ruched and ornately embellished with the finest micro-beads, metallic barley stalks and feathers, intricate glass-beaded bumble-bee and beetle broaches, unifying design and humanity’s earthly connection to nature.

Ralph & Russo : Runway - Paris Fashion Week - Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016-2017

Punctuated by laser cut taffeta forms, bold prints and bohemian mini skirts, the Autumn Winter 2016/2017 collection is a fantasia redefining artistry and reinterpreting the eternal cycle of being.

The Multifunctional Beach Dress for a Stress Free Holiday

Mumusa 3in1.jpg

The innovative apparel brand Mumusa has just launched a campaign on Indiegogo to fund the production of the most elegant, beautiful and comfortable 3 in 1 beach dress designed so far.

“I‘d been looking for such beach dress for years – something that is beautiful, comfortable, elegant and light to carry and isn’t just a piece of fabric called a beach wrap. A dress that you can look good in both on the beach and having a cocktail at the bar afterwards,” explains Mirjam Sitin, the founder of Mumusa.

Mumusa has all the features you look for in a perfect holiday dress: it dries quickly, does not wrinkle, stays up perfectly, suits with every body type and takes almost no space in your bag. And you can wear it in three different ways to suit the occasion and the mood.

Each dress is handmade using the finest fair trade and sustainably sourced silk chiffon materials.

Mumusa dress was created to solve the problems that many women face when on holiday: the suitcase filled with so many different outfits is heavy and gets messy fast, having to constantly change clothes when going from the beach to the hotel or a cafeteria/bar, getting the clothes wet when put on bikini.

Giving back:

Each one of Mumusa projects contributes to fulfilling most direct ocean cleanup missions. A piece of profit from each dress sold is being forwarded to the most innovative and straight forward ocean cleanup projects, so each person who is buying Mumusa dress contributes directly to cleaning up our oceans.

Mumusa will be available on Indiegogo.com here beginning 18th of July for 45 days. After a successful campaign the first line of dresses will go into production in September.

Check out the campaign and get your own Memusa dress now on presale to be ready for your next holiday.

For more information about the campaign, visit the Mumusa website here.
