NEWS IN FASHION DOPE
Adventure, glamour, summer, colonialism, white-world supremacy, Ralph Lauren used it all in this marvellous capsule collection inspired by Argentina. That’s the most spanish you’ll see Ralph Lauren go. Long red dresses, kitsch hats, slim lines, ear rings. Welcome to south America! Read the rest of this entry »
Parisian design bureau Ill Studio, which I follow on a regular basis for inspiration or its collaborations with Lacoste Live! and Pigalle Paris, has released two teasers of a codenamed Metafora scarf. Poping colours on a large piece of silk sounds like a good way to approach the summer doesn’t it ? Read the rest of this entry »
Don’t be mistaken, print pattern are still hot! Thanks to Rihanna (spotted this week wearing Mary Katrantzou‘s design), the young Central Saint Martins graduate rapidly gained global visibility and acknowledgement. Mary Katrantzou magnifies the art of trompe l’oeil through the use of illusory and vivid digital patterns on structured dresses and blouses. Women wearing Mary Katrantzou‘s designs will not go unnoticed this summer! A part of the collection is already available on net-a-porter. Read the rest of this entry »
I admire what Alexander Wang does for his own line, T by Alexander Wang: simple, neat and sexy. Focusing on light fabrics and minimalist designs, he masterfully glorifies the woman’s body. And this white double knit Halter top is a pretty good case in point, don’t you think?! Available on Alexander Wang website

Danish label Soulland created quite a buzz with their recent Babar-print capsule collection. I went to enquire about the brand and I discovered plenty of more discrete garments including this ‘Bourgeoisie‘ navy sweatshirt. A great alternative to the BWGH sweaters that you see all over the place now ! Link to the shop.
To be quite honest, I woud prefer to write posts about new swimsuit brands (like Acacia) or even tees. Yet, these days in Paris, it’s all about rain and cold… So what else than guiding you into buying a new parka to survive these sad rainy days in style. This light weight military inspired Fly parka by French brand Surface to Air does the job. It is pretty well-designed and available in both black and kaki. I would personally go for the kaki model. Get it here. Tell us what you think!
Obviously the brand is not new. The aim either. But as the hustle and bustle of Fashion Week is coming straight to Mexico in the next few three weeks, I would like to reintroduce you to the brand that will inaugurate: Pineda Covalin. It dates back to 1996, from the great association of Cristina Pineda and Ricardo Covalin, both eager to convert the Mexican cultural and historical patrimony as a true source of creation.
