&other stories, the upmarket sister label of H&M, recently announced a new collaboration with the Swedish singer Lykke Li. It’s a ready-to-wear collection containing shoes, bags, jewellery and accessories.
“I’m a nomad and travelled my whole life, so my style choices have grown out of pure necessity,” said Lykke Li. “I need to travel light but still feel empowered – there’s no space for frills or colours; quality above all! I want to feel strong whether it’s falling out of a tour bus in the early morning, watching the sun rise in Paris or belting my heart out on stage in NYC. It’s been a dream of mine to have the perfect leather sack filled with the bare essentials, like a true nomad ready for business, and & Other Stories gave me that chance. This collection is my version of that lifesaving sack and will be my uniform until the day I die.”
The collection reflects her personally style and will run in a scheme of mostly black. The co-lab collection will be available in stores and online autumn 2014.
We have been longing for Abbey Lee Kershaw to occur on the fashions scene for a while now after a quiet break from the business. In these minimalistic black & white portraits by Creative Director Hedi Slimane the model & muse look as cool as ever. The man himself has made sure that only the most interesting personalities front his campaigns for the brand giving the old YSL a new approach.
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.
