ANDREW McDONALD SHOEMAKER : M/F : 2015 [PREVIEW]

We will be showing the new M/F collection from Australian shoe creator Andrew Mcdonald this June and I am lucky enough to have these preview shots of some of the styles. Andrew worked with UK Designer Paul Harnden in his formative years and has a very artisanal approach to his craft but always with a twist of something new. We will share a new photo-shoot for this collection as soon as we have the images.

KOFTA : FEMININE A/W 2014/15 : “THE PLATONIC SOLIDS”

frontground first page

There are five perfect 3- dimensional forms. Collectively these are known as The PlatonicSolids and they are the foundation  of everything in the physical world. Literally the entire Periodic Table of Elements is based on these same five forms. It was Marcel Proust who said, “The real voyage of discovery  consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.”

All the pieces in the collection are hand-made to order : sculpted and moulded from leather.

PARKCHOONMOO F/W 2014/15 [CUBISM] : NYC RUNWAY

Parkchoonmoo

For her 25 year anniversary runway collection designer Demi Park has been inspired to go back to the roots of what design is to her personally. The house was founded under the name De’Moo which literally means “out of nothing”. Demi understands ‘Moo’ (nothingness) to mean limitless boundaries and beauty, AW14 is therefore a season of re-interpreting her old collections and “going back to her roots”.

For [ Cubism ] Demi takes the cube as a building block and applies it to her designs as the base for the pattern, giving each garment an angular silhouette.

SID NEIGUM F/W 2014/15 LOOK-BOOK

140116-SID NEIGUM 10 0188
 Sid Neigum is a young prize-winning Canadian Designer. He will show his new collection in Paris this March.
“The collection was inspired by packaging design. From a technical standpoint, the mission for this collection was to make garments out of one piece of fabric and have it fold, wrap and twist in such a way that it creates a complete piece. The body became the object and the garment became the packaging. I started by stripping the garment construction down – eliminating anything that wasn’t absolutely necessary. The result is a 2 dimensional form which is then laser cut, folded and wrapped to create the piece.”
