This is all about the boys, when they like to be beautiful and gallant, and when they place particular importance on physical appearance. Dandy, they were called in the past, between the late 18th- and early 19th-century in Britain, today we don’t have a name anymore for them. Most probably it would be just a normal boy.
Is there anything more beautiful and fascinating in life than animals and nature? William Wegman, famous for his dog photos collaborates with the Swedish label Acneusing his Weimarraners for the new SS 213 campaign.
In case you have some spare time now and you need a funny happy kick for the day you should not miss to see this spelling lesson. Made by William Wegman.
The first thing which came in my mind when I saw this collection on Trendland was Mary Katrantzou’s changing of the color print for s/s 2012. A coincidence also that the first name of the designer is also Greek (Xenia).
Xenia Laffely is from Switzerland and a new graduate in Fashion Design Collection with menswear from HEAD Genève. Her graduate collection is wonderful but the thing I can’t get enough from, is the way she layouted her lookbook images.
A girl which creates men fashion, strong colored and bold printed combined with unique cuts…and an amazing talent in creating a piece of art on paper. You don’t have to be only a designer these days, you need to be a creator in any kind of “materia” to be recognized as a new talent in fashion, as Xenia Laffely.
“The father in classic suits and the religious man in ceremonial dress. They have haunted me through the process of this collection. I borrowed some attributes of each one, to build on their ashes a third figure ; my own icon, the unworthy son, rebellious, flamboyant. The witness of my emancipation. I designed him a new skin, the beards have become prints, interspersed with embroidery of or- thodox cassocks and woolen masculine suits. Then cut along the lines of classical suits. And I colored the scarves, leggings and jackets with Stabilo, to bring him to life. A graphic and sentimental character, wacky and unpredictable appeared. My own icon.”
