Siki Im

Conveying a design language of structure meets deconstruction, fashion designer Siki Im proposes a complex and layered style. While his principally black and charcoal palette offers a dark and romantic silhouette, Im insists his vision remains optimistic, claiming, “I’m not a dark person. Some people think I’m dark.

Gustavo Lins
Gustavo Lins

It’s no surprise that water, something so basic and essential, so fluid and pervasive, is Gustavo Lins’ element.

Erro: Downtown Inspiration

The world has always looked to downtown New York for a sense of street style.

Childhood Memories À Porter

Butterflies on flimsy dresses, natural objects turned into geometric patterns, a fantasy world on a shirt: this feast for the eyes is Leitmotiv, a small Italian brand which is quickly turning heads with its colorful, exquisitely tailored apparel.

Queen of Darkness For the last few years, London fashion has been all about extreme creativity and innovation—the crazier the better. And while this helped shape the style of the city, making it the young fashion capital of the world, it left contemporary fashion aficionados pining for a more sophisticated and refined option.

British rising star Sophie Hulme seems to have an answer for this. Having just […]

Sweden has produced some of the most sought after brands of the last few years, from inexpensive lines to cutting-edge, avant-garde and innovative collections, falling just shy of fashion’s radars as the country on which to always keep a watchful eye.

Jessica Au’s Eclectic Revision of the British Bespoke Suit

Text by Rosa Maria Bertoli London menswear and bespoke tailoring have long been widely perceived to be inextricably intertwined.

It’s no surprise then that London’s latest Graduate Fashion […]

Henrik Vibskov’s Introspective Approach to Outsider Fashion

Text by Michael Cohen One of the most exciting dialogues in fashion occurs between tradition and rebellion. For Henrik Vibskov, reactionary deviation from norms is not a design objective. “I never do market research,” he says. “I don’t have a clue what people want, I just give them what I think is good. Wearability can […]

Why So Serious?
Why So Serious?

MAC’s new Holiday line goes smoky and bold I, like the rest of the world, was shamelessly enthralled with The Dark Night. While Heath Ledger’s Joker was meant to have a haunting and disturbing appearance, I couldn’t help thinking that with a few swipes here and there, it would be the perfect smoky eye and […]

Bland Is As Bland Does
Bland Is As Bland Does

For lack of a better descriptor, we’ll call Bland a “clothing line”—though that hardly encapsulates the cleverly subversive efforts of Theodoric Bland Willoughby and his co-conspirator Meghan Coleman that have included, among other things, hooded hats, cigarette broaches, armless vests, clear ruler sunglasses, mannequin pantomime, as well as some expertly constructed, unisex separates. It’s a […]
