Tribal glamazons of the cityscape – this is my first and entirely deep impression of the Spring/Summer 2014 collection of Ioanna Kourbela entitled under the exact to the subject name “The Ethics of Aesthetics”.
There is a strong factor of crisp white esthetics interlaced with clean cuts, mild and earthy shades that are implemented with the ethnical factors of laser-cut elements and pleats. The garment seems to be designed for full comfort in femininity and ubiquitous lightness. Some bare components like open back dresses, transparent fabrics and asymmetrical lines definitely stands for the balance to pouring forms and waterfall shapes. Such a conceal-reaveal concept. What is more, the collections is accentuated with the small post bags, cute headbands and platform footwear ans flat leather sandals.
“The Ethics of Aesthetics
If the body in reality is a garment of the soul,
the inner being cannot take any other clothes,
only extensions of the body.
… and if the fabrics, colors and pulses
succeed to reach a naked body to morality,
you can say that it is summer.”

One of the most remarkable fashion houses – Alexander McQueen without a doubt puts a stamp of fashion significance season by season proving the existence of a wearable yet progressive idea of style. The house unveils not only the synergy of ethereal art and awe-inspiring fashion, but also the infusion of refined, edgy and wearable factor as the most coveted one. The Spring/Summer 2013 presentation was a feast for eyes thanks to the concept of the sophisticated beekeepers armored with the marvelous headpieces all together with the queen of bees’ personification and the honey comb constructions.

The geisha-inspired theme captured in the lens of Sebastian Kim reveals western fashion tribute to the richness of the Country of the Rising Sun. The marvelous unveiling of Japan-focused culture is one of the main inspirations presented on the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalks including fashion giants like Alexander McQueen, Prada, Haider Ackermann and Mugler. To be truth, despite that the Asian theme is a repeated trend, I feel always amazed with the results that one country like Japan can offer with the plenteous culture and visualization of art. My Japanese inclinations that are clearly visibly on the pages of EdelScope.com are probably rooted in my silent dreaming of visiting the land of Issey Miyake, Junya Wutanabe and Yohji Yamamoto.

The awarded design of 132 5.
