The big of Antwerp´s Royal Academy.
by Valentina Plumari

Antwerp’s royal academy formed amazing designers. They are deeply different but with something in common: the success.


Ann Demeulemeester’s  fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear fashion show in Paris was brilliant, as always. Just two colours to represent the essential, the purity of beauty. Hats with long feathers flying over the heads of the models. A dream, a bad one, with double emotions. A black beautiful warrior fighting against daily life, heavy leather boots and firm huge belt to protect herself. And a white 19th-century princess with floating transparent dress and extra long coats. Fur and fringe are her weapons. Two way to see the same concept. A strong person who suffers but resists. Exactly, what we need today.

LYNNE KAYENNE MEETS CHRISTIAN BLANKEN
exclusive interview for Dario Cuci

Getting an interview with your favourite designer is every girl’s dream. But when your favourite designer is one of the busiest and hard working men in fashion then things can get tricky. I wasn’t going to let it defeat my rock and roll dream chasing edge so took my chances and made it happen. I finally managed to chat to Christian Blanken on hisdesigns, his brand, SS12 collection and most important of all, the brain food for every Dream chaser; motivation, inspiration and purposefulness.

MOSCHINO CHEAP & CHIC
Autumn/Winter 2012-13 London Fashion Week

The Italian Brand of Moschino Cheap & Chic showed yesterday for the first time in London. The creative director Rossella Jardini riffed on “makeup and Queen Elizabeth”, and the result was an ice cream-hued, royalty-gone-askew foray.”It’s about making up your life,” she said before the show. The designer Francesca Rubino  presented silhouettes were vaguely ’60s and came in an eclectic palette of makeup prints, patchwork lace, and rainbow fur. Cosmetic prints plastered puff ball skirts and cocktail dresses. Patchwork lace dresses came in a delicious assortment of candy colours, while fuzzy fur boleros and bags added a cute yet kooky edge.

Thom Browne
Autumn/Winter 2012-13 Paris Fashion Week


It´s a multi sexual language express on the Browne´s winter collection 2012 presented for Paris fashion week. Unusual silhouettes that remind us at the rugby´s look with big shoulders. Models walked down the runway with punk-hair and fetish details  in bossy jackets bound together with  mini shirts on short trousers or skirts. Adorable!!!
Here some pictures of the fashion show

DOLCE & GABBANA
Autumn/Winter 2012-13 Milan Fashion Week

With the notes of Giuseppe Verdi and the lyrics of Pavarotti,  started the winter collection of Dolce & Gabbana  F/W 2012-13 that is a veritable celebration of Italian excellence. The male sartorial tradition evolves to modern  with new cuts, volumes and proportions. The collection remind to the past like the  Sicilian “tistera”the mantella that wore the herdmen, and the classic hat “coppola”. Interesting the use of woven that resume embroidery of baroque churches. The result is a man between the past and future, between the classical and the modern, between craftsmanship and technology.
