Fashion Focus: Mohawk hairstyles in Fashion Photography.

The Vogue Netherlands May 2012 Photoshoot Stars a Savage Rianne ten Haken_1

Mohawk hairstyle that considered to be a warrior significance in Native American tradition is clearly visible in Fashion industry nowadays. The savage appearance of the Mohican hairdo is clashed with the sophisticated gowns, mixed with the neo-punk attitude and merged with the sporty classic. Presented in numerous openings from the colorful selection with the rainbow like effects, accentuated with feathers, braided like in the rustic fairy-tale, Mohican just proves that cannot be reserved to the 80’s punk subculture anymore.

Mohawk hairdo supposed to be a manifest signature for anarchy and opposition to consumptionism while with the progress of style became one of the trends that is frequently borrowed or even adopted in various versions on the catwalk, official and public events, photography and high street on every day basis.

Good or not, judge yourself . There is my favourite t-shirt from Panapoo “GPunk” that utterly covers the idea of punk attitude and style that I proudly wear on my daily basis.

Fashion Designer: Claudia Danna – “Visions between the end and the beginning”.

Claudia Andrea DannaVisions between the end and the beginning_11

Inspirations taken from natural world and animal ancestry enriched with tribal mystery,  symbolism and alchemy are the substratum of Claudia Danna‘s vision of fashion. The collection entitled “Visions between the end and the beginning” is the transition between two dark frontiers – the darkness of vanishing and the darkness that preludes the new beginning like the metamorphosis of a chrysalis. From one side we are introduced into the dark concept of death with the dark accents and taxonomic influences. From another side the vivid accents of palette ensure us about the darkness of rebirth like the end of one stage moves to beautiful transformation of a butterfly.  The dresses illustrate the armor constructions encapsulating the ethereal silk and lightweight chiffon, rigid rubber and arthropod designs outlining the mystical experience between the closing and initial point.

The collection “Visions between the end and the beginning” for Autumn/ Winter 2013-2014 was presented during the fashion week Altaroma Haute Couture . Thanks to the collection, the designer Claudia Andrea Danna became a winner of the “ Fashion Award Altieri – Best Talented Designer”.

Fashion Inspiration: Persephoni Spring/Summer 2014

PERSEPHONI SS 2014_1

The sleek shine of silver metal mingled with the smooth black leather structure depicts the concept of accessories line by Persephoni.  Simple yet refined line of Greek brand is accentuated with the razor-sharp edges composed of geometrical forms, triangle shapes and cubic patterns. The asceticism of steel is juxtaposed with the softness of fur, leather laxity as well as flexibility of snake-skin. The collection presents the renown geometrical 3D necklaces and solid block bracelets published in numerous magazines including such publications as Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, Numero Tokyo, Numero Paris, Harper’s Bazaar among others. Persephoni enriched the accessories line with new elements like leather harnesses, cube, geometrical and rounded pouches, half-sphere backpacks, cone-shaped watch bracelets. The fashion statement with the Persephoni’s accessories is taken for granted.
