Merging fashion with function is Hope´s device. The collection presented in Paris a few days ago was all that, but also more edgy than what we have seen from Hope previously. The lok is still a tailored merge of female & masculine, but this time the pieces had a hint of 90´s to them that make the overall statement look a tiny bit punk. Layering is big also this season, and Hope was no exception. In the video above you can view exclusive material from the show!
Catching up on fashion week, one of the biggest moments anticipated must be Nicholas Guesquiére´s – former designer for Balenciaga – first collection for iconic label Louis Vuttion. On the last day of Paris fashion week the fashion crowd gathered and the buzz has been circulating the brand a lot the past few days. Ghesquiére wrote a very personal letter starting with ‘Today is a new day. A big day…Words cannot express exactly how I am feeling at this moment” cementing his big ‘comeback’.
The collection was full of classical pieces but with that added Ghesquiére touch which roughens every piece. Most dominant was the a-line silhouette, with a contoured waist and hour glass silhouette coherent through the collection. The color choices are natural and in line with what Louis Vuitton stands for, but with a few accent colors like dark orange.

During London fashion week Cara Delevingne’s bag collection for Mulberry was released. According to the Mulberry team she was truly dedicated, obsessing over detailing, visiting the archives for inspiration and choosing the different variations of leather. Cara wanted every aspect of the bag to be functional and the design was shaped thereafter.
‘The Mulberry Cara Delevingne Bag is a three-in-one style, uniting Mulberry’s English attitude to functional beauty and Cara’s inimitable personality – a bag that can take you anywhere. It can be worn on the back: for running from the gym to the office, from meeting to meeting, from train to plane. It can be worn on the shoulder: to take you from work to dinner or from town to country. It can be hand-held: for maximum elegance at all times or when you need to rise to an occasion.’
