SSAW SS19 / Lara Mullen photographed by Chloé le Drezen, styled by Roxane Danset.
I love this photo with my favorite dress from the Marni SS19 runway collection, that will soon hit the stores. Actually the whole Marni -editorial in the SSAW magazine was absolutely stunning and literally brings out the artistic point of view of the brand. There was also an interesting interview with Francesco Risso, where he discusses about his time at Marni so far, the collaborations he does with artists and his ideas for the future.
Maybe it’s not fair from me to pick sides here, as I’m currently working for Marni, but the above is one of my favorite looks from MFW! The show was just art pieces after another. To describe the collection better, I must quote Sarah Mower; “It had the same feeling as when an artist instinctively knows when a painting is finished. The skill is in the decision to stop before tidying up and overthinking ruins it all.” I couldn’t agree more.
Trendspotting balaclavas for AW2018. I’m very excited every time for practical trends and could definitely imagine myself in head-to-toe brown with that Marni knit on. Besides Marni and Balenciaga, balaclavas were also seen at Calvin Klein, Gucci, Chanel and Preen, just to mention a few.
TRENDSPOTTING – All the fashion capitals are always a bit different in terms of trends, but here’s one spotted from every city. The sport-luxe trend is continuing with designers drawing inspiration (hah, got it?) from 80’s – early 90’s outdoor sportswear with shiny and windproof materials- and well, drawstrings. Also seen in Versace, Jacquemus, J.W.Anderson, Dries Van Noten and Sacai, just to mention a few.
Also lots of belt bags and anoraks spotted, sound very traditional Finnish clothing to me!
