A Very Particular Approach

Perfectly designed and featuring a particular approach to the fashion clientele, Jun Takahashi’s latest Undercover collection might be regarded as the most pleasant surprise of the Fall 2016 season. The sophisticated shapes and fabrics, color palette, wonderful prints inspired by the works of Matthieu Bourel, the gracious styling, the unconventional casting, everything comes together in a coherent and topical fashion statement. I felt it like a breath of fresh air.

The first Dior ready-to-wear show after Raf Simons’ departure from the house wasn’t bad at all. Although the overall atmosphere dominated by black outfits might seem a little too sober, we can spot quality details, as specific garment designs (high collars, perfect shaped knitwear) and more energizing fashion styling (delicious punk details such as safety pin earrings).

Calvin Klein ad campaigns definitely should be referred as visual and conceptual landmarks of the last fashion decades. The recently released Calvin Klein Jeans ad campaign, starring avant-garde artist FKA Twigs (plus dancer Kaner Flex) goes even further, adding more dynamism and sensuality to the image of the American cult label.

The Calvin Klein ad unveils a series of clean & dramatic photos shot by David Sims along with a special video directed by FKA Twigs and related to her latest single “Good to Love”.
