SANDRINE PHILIPPE SS15_2
SANDRINE PHILIPPE SS15_1
SANDRINE PHILIPPE SS15
Sandrine Philippe Spring/Summer 2015 is an uniquely organic collection that knits and oscillates between sensibilities that are human and animalistic. Artisan textile work fused with innovative cuts create the basis for the concept of a ‘second skin’. The collection holds a range of colors that zigzag between off-white and black whilst also addressing a range of worn down greens. Cottons, un-knitted jerseys, burnt leathers, silicone and tie dye techniques combine together creating visual textiles that maintains an aesthetic both profound and mysterious.

‘Arakhnea’ is the fruition of an artistic collaboration between Sandrine Philippe; Parisian Fashion Designer, Marco Chenevier; dance choreographer and director of the franco-italian troop TIDA and photographer Maxime Leyravaud.
A synthesis of expertise, identities and energies, ‘Arakhnea’ presents itself as an atypical object representing a very specific vision of art; the amalgamation of images researched, choreographies and design.
‘Arakhnea’ throws us into a fantastical universe where memories, imagination and time passing are simultaneously merged as well as drawn outwards. Old spaces are inhabited by strange beings, human or wild, floating between solitude and instability, fiction and reality. It is thus that we are questioned about poetry and the beauty of life.
The concepts and aesthetics are very dear to Sandrine Philippe who has long been inspired to create both mens and womens collections based around the idea of time past.
Beyond fashion, the film illustrates how the use and transformation of fabrics is intrinsic in the creative processes of Sandrine Philippe.
Her research and approach provoke strange memories of the past created by the hybridization of masculine and feminine, air and earth, past and future, light and shade and creation and destruction.

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 Inspiration: Wearing Light by ISSEY MIYAKE in Spring/Summer 2014.

ISSEY_MIYAKE_SS14_08

Multifaceted concept of light in nature empowered by the latest textile technology and crisp aesthetic of fashion evolved in awe-inspiring collection by ISSEY MIYAKE’s for Spring Summer 2014 .  The significance of the brand encapsulated sporty nonchalance with the definite graphic cut. The  refined craftsmanship melted in the constructions composed of  hybrid textiles and inventive technologies. Ever-illuminating light is the overwhelmed factor of the collection – from the resemblance of the starts on the pitch-black sky, the chalky  luminescence of the Moon through the bright-day rainbow created by sun rays. The presentation of light by ISSEY MIYAKE Spring/Summer 2014 was unveiled in three openings.

STARLIGHT.

The first opening of the light illustrates the metallic shine of the stars accompanied by the dark sky at night. Through the set, the metallic clothing is made of manufactured leather covered with the film to enhance the metal shine effect. The common denominator of the starlight series is a new punching technique that exhibit stars on the tiny holes. Thanks to the  “Steam Stretch” technique the shape of pants, jackets and coats evinced the three-dimensional aspect.

MOONLIGHT.

The luminous white of the moonlight is condensed in the grid knit presentation accompanied by mesh tops and cotton grid structures. The grid-shaped texture is formed from stretch yarn technique that focuses on the weft and warp simultaneously. The hybrid nature of the clothing created fusion of matte and shiny translucent fabrics remaining lightweight and ethereal as well. Another worth-mentioning technique that unveiled the moonlight concept is spiral cutting used in open wave jacket and coats.  The outline of the distinguishing silhouette with the soft posture is the effect of hybrid approach that merges inventive yarns created on old-style knitting machines. The impressive transfer printing also skillfully bright up with the vivid palette.

SUNLIGHT

With the beginning to the third phase, the sunlight is exposed with the three-dimensional coats covered with mesh in blue and red gradations. The choice of colors is not aleatory. The azure  sky infuses with the deep redness of the sunset that spread around the horizon. Along with the substantial mesh, the garment compose 3D movement feel of light and shade. The sunlight is also expressed by double layered cotton skirts and tops enriched with lightweight mode and color. The glow of sun that punctures from the whirling clouds is presented by double power of wave and cotton on the tops and bottoms. The lightweight cover reveals the hint of color while moving.

The concept of shape-shifting glimpse with the transcendental change of beauty is the main indicator of the video directed by Solve Sundsbo. The super model Lara Stone embodies the continual alternation of the beauty encapsulating the palette of colors linked with the transformation of shapes, moods and styles. The walking figure of Lara is divided into four sections that formulate a collage of four different parts of the body encoding a great variety of visions and styles.
