Suzy Street | Chiroptera’s Fall















 

Totally drawn in by edgy and magnetic aesthetic of stylist Suzy Street.

 

Chiroptera’s Fall is a raw and fierce editorial, just as we like it! I am looking forward to see more of Suzy’s rad work in the near future. Check here her stunning portfolio here www.suziestreet.com.

() claudia ligari ss12

I have  been fascinated by Claudia Ligari’s work since her very first collections (see my posts here and read her interview here).

 

This season I had the pleasure to write for her the collection press release featured on Blow.co.uk. Read it below to discover the inspiration of her beautiful designs.

 

This season Claudia Ligari has overwhelmed us with delivering a futuristic collection that is distant and almost antithetical from the last season’s triumph of darkness yet still keeping her very distinct signature style. For her Spring Summer 2012 structured creations and soft elements are juxtaposed with a perfect edge in an exclusively white palette, creating an atmosphere of pure neutrality while at the same time breathing in the feeling of freshness into them.

In the wake of her previous work, Claudia continues to experiment with geometric cuts and exciting mixed materials, creating ready to wear handmade sculptures that preserve individuality in every single garment.

 

Along with the sheer lightweight cloth sits thick rubber net hand painted and hand sewn onto the garment, combined with printed hand glued silicones in a meticulously crafted work: an almost statuesque, artsy approach adding an extra touch for those who cultivate an avant-garde aesthetic. Inspired by Olympics sporty uniforms, especially scuba diving and bicycle racing suits, her SS12 designs feature long zip pullers, swimming caps and front zip bras. A severe perfection of a racer’s figure resonates throughout all her collection in a very sensual way, as she always succeeds in making unexpected and at the same time attractive garments on her woman’s body.

Despite the sporty inspiration as a starting point, she keeps it elegant and feminine without compromising her neat aesthetic, presenting a sleek collection of almost evening like dresses as well as very refined silhouettes. Tridimensional side panels featured on dresses, shorts and skirts explore a flawless and distinctive calm dimension for a more futuristic but still comfortable look. Looking as if she came from another planet, this is what Claudia Ligari’s women is about. True to her roots, the designer has played around with sophisticated shapes that underline her woman’s strong individuality, creating once
again an allure of purity and minimal-chic elegance.

VENDÔME HOME





Currently stirred by these images of Gaia Repossi’s place on Interview magazine by Photography SPELA KASAL.

The designer studio, a clean white space posted above her family’s historic Place Vendôme boutique in the heart of Paris, looks like an incredibly inspiring place to work in!

 

Check here her interview with KATHARINE ZARRELLA.

*DeMiV Galaxy for POPPINSCREAM



Black and white photography meets empty urban landscapes and luxury cars, kids moving in the streets and raving in posh flats. Music and dance melt together, under the signature trippy editing of Mr. Made In Varma. This is his new short film.

ENJOY.
