PRET-A-PORTER PART 2

Posted by mckayn1 on January 28, 2010

PRET-A-PORTER

1) “FORENSIC SCIENCE” … LOUIS VUITTON BY DANIEL LEIRAH-

A non commecialised prototype in the image of LV. The shoe becomes a symbol of avant gardism yet made with traditional materials. Very high and fit for high fashion.

2) “FUTUTRE OF FASHION”… BY ALANTA WELLER

With the creativity of new designers becoming more enthusiatic than ever before, Alanta weller may just be heading on the right track with this prototype. However, I cannot imagine someone walking down the street in a pair of black blocks. Nevertherless, nobody thought one would be brave enough to wear the Alexander McQueen, but it has been done.

3)  BY DUNCAN SHAW

Non-commerical prototype with a near knife edge shoe. Equipped with mirror reflections and shoe design is definately a so-chic killer instinct

4) ECCLESIASTICAL CROSS OF THE 18TH CENTURY… BY ESTHER LAPORTE

One of the memorable pieces of jewellery i saw. She has mixed style, periods, vehicles, colours and materials and was inspired by Twilight Attutide.

5) “Blue Shoe” By Stella Sarpay

A non-commericial prototype but i don;t know why? Its certainly wearable and looks very chic. I love the tone of blue she has chosen.

6) LOUIS VUITTON SHOE… BY SERRANO DE RODRIGO

“MY FAVOURITE”

Another non-commerical prototype. A geometric & acrobatic vision high heels. The LV on the front padlock makes it for me! A simple way of ascertain a brand. Genius!

7) COUTURE SKELETON RING!

PRET-A-PORTER

Posted by mckayn1 on January 28, 2010

*APOLOGIES FOR THE FORMAT BELOW, I TRIED EVERYTHING 🙂 * Enjoy…

From London to Paris, this two hour train journey was certainly worth it. Pret-A-Porter is one of the biggest fashion events in the world. My eyes were being flushed with hundreds of brands from France to Korea to Italy etc… Truely an educational experience. I managed to take some photos by asking nicely :); however, other designers were relunctant to allow me for personal and brand issues.

FURS

Inside the Arena there were countless brands illustrating the fur trend. Some real, some symthetic and often mixed with leathers aswell. These are pictures of some of the brands or trends i was able to take pictures of:

Anton & Moda

Spanish brand selling fur, symthetic or ecological coats.      The coats were very nice and the leather was rich in quality.

A&G- Another fur + leather brand with an established reputation in Europe.

Demoiselle- Goat Leather

Sang Futur- Japaneise Designer. Voted Designer of the year in Japan. Favourite piece is the jacket 3rd & 4th picture.

ChicFutur– Pattern Cut dress + Royal Blue fur jacket.

All of the pictures were taken by myself. Pret-A-Porter was reallyyy good, more to come!

IT’S CRAZYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY !!!

Posted by mckayn1 on January 23, 2010

Yes the campaign is finally here. I remember my mouth dropping when i first saw these heels.  30 CM !!! That’s crazy. But I do like girls in heels, as high as possible. But this might be too high to handle…*eyes rolling*

Racquel Zimmerman is definately one of the most proffessional models. Ive grown to trust her in a sense that if I find out she has booked a new campaign, im gonna be satisfied.
Only two pictures unfortunately, they must be hiding the rest! :@ Enjoy.

TOP 5 TREND PIECES FROM: ‘NOTICE ME PRINTS’

Posted by mckayn1 on January 23, 2010

TOP 5 TREND PIECES FROM: ‘NOTICE ME PRINTS’

With a mixture of florals, unconstructed geometrics and ikat prints; I have chosen five pieces that caught my eye on this years Spring/Summer 2010 runway.

When looking through the trend reports, it felt as if I was analysing some sort of art work featured in the Tate Modern gallery. It was Art at its best!

Many do not see fashion as an art form which uneases me so much simply because to create something you have to have a vision, a passion and in most cases an inspiration behind what you produce; which all artist have.
Take Mary Katrantzou for example, she was inspired by the swirling lines on perfume bottles and from this, created the perfect dress acting as a modern day silouette whilst maintaining the bold shoulders.

She never fails to impress me.

Posted by mckayn1 on January 23, 2010

Yes, I know you’ve probably seen her hundreds of times, whether it be in the newspapers, adveritisng campaigns, editorials, advertorials, magazine covers BLA BLA BLA…the list is never ending. However, we have to give it to arguably the world’s largest Supermodel who doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Kate Moss never seems to dissatisfy me.
This Vogue Paris editorial was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and illustrates a natural side of Ms Moss.
