Daria Werbowy is one of those models we can´t get enough of. She manages to transform into various characters representing some of the most renowned brands – and this Balenciaga campaign is no exception. With a bold feminine look the angular pieces by head designer Alexander Wang are presented. The images are empowering and go in a more mature direction than Wang has previous been spokesman for with his own label, something well suitable for Balenciaga.
Proenza Schouler might be the fashion love of our life. The prints got us thinking about Jackson Pollock, and the possible outcome if he had been getting soft and started to sketch flowers. But we are not done there, we also imagined him starting to make animal prints after an inspirational trip to the jungle. The prints are simply genius, and that is not an ordinary reference when it comes to prints. Layering & mixing them wildly makes it even more interesting. The classic PZ silhouettes are also intriguing with enlarged arms and airy coats. There is nothing boring about this collection at all.
Crocker jeans are bending the boundaries more than any other brand on the Swedish fashion scene right now, and for a high street brand that is quite impressive. In the center of it all is model Erika Linder, starring in the campaign for both men & women. Erika with her chameleon like qualities has had a great year carrier wise and are really hitting it big on an international level. No one could better represent the Jeans brand in this androgynous campaign for spring.
MM6 Maison Margiela presented a collection with less surprises and many nice pieces, a judgement that the fashion house might not be proud of thinking about their heritage. Margiela has always been a brand bending the limits for what is wearable and what not, what a piece is and what not. There is nothing wrong with this collection, but there is nothing exciting about it either. We have to remember that this is the MM6 line though and the whole thought being that it should be an urban brand that people actually can wear. In that sense this is an achievement, but there is not much Margiela left in our opinion.
Marie Hindkaer, blogger at Freshnet and founder of Luellemag looks incredible in InWear´s spring/summer campaign. InWear´s design is modern, functional and empowering, and Marie personifies the design with her fashionable approach and ambition. The fashion editor are a now diligent fashion week goer and have grown with her position as Luellemag editor and Scandinavian style icon. InWear´s campaign reflects her bold choice of pattern mixes but with pieces that are classic and that radiate self confidence.
