Fashion Focus: Black-Red-White Mood.

Black -Red – White. Catchy yet classical selection of colors can be found in some fashion tendencies lately. The tri-color palette can be depicted on the face-painting factor as seen on Toni Garn, sporty chic clothing as well as in ad campaigns of Dior from Fall 2013 Campaign. The blonde model – Toni Garn captured by Hunter & Gatti clashes the image of blue-eyed sensitivity with the tribal vibe. The photography merges with the collage of oil painting and stitching style.

Fashion Designer: Bianca Popp Fall/Winter 2015 – “Temple Invisible” Collection.

bianca popp aw 2015 look 11.2

The fashion signature of Bianca Popp is formed in theatrical influences and background that highly relates to her career in a theatrical costumography. As the Marangoni Master graduate from Istituto Marangoni Milan she started her own label in 2009. The designer’s passion for costumes pushed her for searching new perspective of style based on complex human behaviour and interactions while staying original and individual according to veracity of oneself. The eponymous label is focused on the adaptation of multiplicity of movement and self-esteem.

The collection for Fall/Winter 2015 season is a structured line that consists of 35 silhouettes that are deisgned in a geometrical twist. The vibe of the collection is kept in ultimate femininity emphasized with the signature knot. The palette of colors is defined by the black base along with the sombre colors consisting of grey, marsala, dark blue and white.

The designer wanted to express the strength and functionality as the main factor of the line with the selected presentation of fabrics such as neoprene, wool, cashmere, jersey tricot and synthetic leather. Playing on the balance of vigor and vulnerability, Bianca Popp craves to depict the group of independent modern women. The garment is pictured as the armor spirit fabric for protection purposes such as inconvenient weather conditions as well as the indication of the poised elegance of female body.

Fashion Inspiration: IVAN – Geometry-inspired jewellery line unveiled in their first collection “MMXV”.

IVAN_04

The brand-new jewellery line by „IVAN” is highly inspired by the simplicity of geometry a fashion–focused concept of mathematical forms and shapes. The creative mind behind the IVAN brand is a Swedish artist – Ivan Pettersson who investigated about the the boundries between simplicity and the aspects of beauty in order to create unisex pieces of wearable architecture.

According to the Ancient Greek, the geometry that stands for γεωμετρία can be divided into two parts geo- “earth”, -metron “measurement”. This branch of mathematics is concerned with notions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space and is a perfect base for an innovative concept of IVAN jewellery. Not only because of its aesthetics itself, but also feedback as a fashion statement. By focusing on the pureness of traditional silversmithery, every single item of the collection is treated with special attention and produced as a piece of art. The jewellery pieces are handcrafted using a one-use only wax mould and high quality 925 silver – some items are finished with gold plating.

Worth-mentioning is also a captivating idea of a lookbook campaign of IVAN line as presented on their website http://www.ivan-geometry.com and Instagram http://www.instagram.com/ivangeometry. The half painted model with androgynous type of beauty is painted with pitch black color on hands and torso. The precise division between his skin and black color represents the unisex inclinations of purity in mathematical measures as well emphasize the clean conception of geometry.

Take a look at the impressive gallery of Ivan Geometry-inspired jewellery line unveiled in their first collection “MMXV”:

The history and influence of sports in the fashion world

If you are keen on chic clothing and know something of sporting activities, you will not be surprised to learn just how much influence sports and sports attire have had on the world of mainstream fashion – both designer labels and off the rack gear. Often, a specific style will have its origins in the world of sport, but then you will find it at your local department store or see it worn by a model in a fashion magazine. Look carefully at some of the styles you see around you and you will soon realize that the shoes and clothing styles that were designed to be of functional use for sports activities have been turned into fashionable staples for everyone.

Popular influences

Originally designed for players who used the basketball or tennis court, for running or other athletic purposes, sneakers are now a part of everyone’s normal shoe collection, particularly those who favor urban street style. Basketball jerseys are another example. First worn by players, then by fans, both basketball jersey styles and the most popular colors and numbers have since been adopted by fashionconscious consumers. T-shirts and skirts developed to meet the needs of women tennis players, by keeping them cool and offering them freedom of movement, have also inspired mainstream fashion designs.

History suggests that the Brooklyn Excelsiors wore the first rounded-top baseball caps in 1860, which then became known as the Brooklynstyle cap. In common with most sports-influenced design ideas, specific features were intended to improve athletic performance or provide better protection. In the case of the baseball cap, the peak was intended to protect players’ eyes. Baseball caps, like sneakers, remain a popular fashion item for young people.

The same trends apply to winter sports activities – brands that were introduced for snowboarders and skiing enthusiasts were quickly taken up by celebrities and thus became a high-impact influence. With the increasing popularity of sports clothing and footwear, many sponsors of sport saw an opportunity to broaden their reach, and today many items carry a firm logo or brand colors, including jerseys, shoes, T-shirts and baseball caps.

New trends

Today’s sportswear is highly sophisticated and designed to enhance athletic performance. It is interesting to note that sponsorship has also moved on. For example, it is not unusual to find that a designer brand that sponsors female athletes is interested in producing garments such as a women’s elbow sleeve, knee sleeve or compression band, which are not always seen by consumers. Perhaps the philosophy is that if the item of clothing is both comfortable and practicable, and valued initially by athletes, then it will move into mainstream consciousness given time.

Fashion Focus: Enchanting Imagery in Ines Kozic’s photography.

Ines_Kozic_beautifulbizarre-1-1024x757

 

The fairy tale mystery that merges with conceptual art is the result of sensitiveness of the young and talented photographer – Ines Kozic -the 22 years old artist from that studies at the Fine Arts School of Rennes. Embracing both factors – the immaculate experience from childhood years and confronting the future – the photography of Kozmic faces the unveiling of fragility, enigma, sensuality and  alluring elements of voyeurism.

The artistical isnpiration comes from many sources – recollection from the childhood memories, dark tales, surrealist poetry and quote writer André Breton,  the work of Francesca Woodman, the photographer Laura Makabresku,  favorite dancer – Carlotta Ikeda as well as three movies – The perfume of Tom Tykwer, The Countess of Julie Delpy and Antichrist of Lars Von Trier.
