http://www.wandanylon.fr/e-shop/ Launched in 2012, WANDA NYLON is a designer brand based in Paris. The brand has made a name of itself by specializing in rainwear; revisiting its classic codes while adopting a subversive and confident posture. The constant research for innovative fabrics as well as the creation of graphic and clean designs have helped the brand establishing the reputation of an international fashion brand. Amongst its inspirations, the retro-futurism world of the 60’s, the fabulous heritage of the 90’s british fashion which rooted in the independent uk newspapers, american minimalism, along with explicit fetish references, emerged into a modern and functional sportswear aesthetics. The first iconic items, whether in vinyl or transparent plastic, quickly positionned the brand amongst the most widely followed creative fashion brands. Drawing from this DNA while getting firmly established, WANDA NYLON now offers a complete wardrobe, fusing with its iconic pieces. The WANDA NYLON style draws a pure outline both strong and modern; the attitude is free-spirited yet sophisticated, allowing the woman to feel empowered, confident and charismatic.

Press Release SS 2016 – The Rise Of Imperfection On 7 October, Allude, under the guidance of creative director Andrea Karg, presented its summer 2016 collection in the Salle Melpomène of the École Nationale Supérieure of the Beaux Arts de Paris during the Fashion Week in Paris. The collection focuses on the body's core in all its diversity. Gently wrapped and folded cashmere creates unseen knitted surfaces which are playfully combined with flared skirts featuring elements of linen and denim to produce a consistent silhouette. The deconstruction of the individual creations underlies the concept of the collection.
MIRROR LYRICS | ILARIA NISTRI FW16
Just like entering into a game of reflections, into a story written in a kaleidoscope of mirrors. Rooms in a palace. On the first floor of the Hotel Particulier Iena, the path leading from one room to the next is mapped out with lights and shadows, by the groove of a rock band and the echo of a waltz from a dance that has been and gone. An elegantly laid table marks an imminent dinner, but now, a solitary guitarist sits beside it, playing electric chords. And in the room next door, nature bursts in through the fireplace, filling it with plants like algae in the red of an aquarium. And finally, in the last room, a band plays live in the atmosphere of Only lovers left alive. And a chocolate warmth is everywhere. Like the space inhabitants of a palace suspended in time, Ilaria Nistri’s women inhabit these rooms and invite guests to enter and become part of their dream.

JULIUS SHOW MEN'S FW SS2017 PARIS
TATSURO HORIKAWA [ JULIUS Designer ] I feel there are many different elements inside myself that contribute to the creation of a collection. I create the collection when these differing elements accumulate to such a point that they form into one exceptional vision or idea. These elements are the following : Art, Architecture, Music, Ambient Sound / Noise, Travel, Emotional Communication and my own internal creative urge. The aim is not only to create simply “clothing” but rather, to create and contribute to a person’s total life-style and existence.It’s a similar process to making a movie and a very sacred and profane thing. Sometimes the world of my imagination and vision becomes frayed and broken-down, chaotic and corrupt, the stillness sunk beneath loud vibrational noise, the purity and destruction contained within every Pilgrim.Its a sharp and metallic industrial mayhem. Black is always the base of my creative palette. “Black” symbolizes the Avant-Garde and has a deep spiritual and noble meaning for me. I am obsessed by the image of “Black” in Japanese Religion , in Zen. It represents the crazy darkness hidden in the shadows away from the light. It is the total color of complete and utter grief. コレクションは様々な要素が僕の中に蓄積され、一つの世界を作り出した瞬間から始まります。その要素は時にアートだったり、建築、音楽、日々感じる音、旅、そして人との感情的なコミュニケーションだったりします。 僕にとってのクリエイションは、服そのものを作るのだけではなく、その服を着ている人々の存在自体や、彼らを取り巻く世界を作るという行為を主としています。それは一本の映画を作る行為にとても近く、とても神聖で、ある種、冒涜的な行動ですらあります。その世界は時として、朽ち果てた、混沌の支配する退廃であったり、轟音の支配する中に潜む静寂であったり、破滅的な純粋さをもった巡礼者という存在、鋭利で金属的なインダストリアルな狂気、であったりします。 黒が常に僕のクリエイションのべースです。僕にとって黒はとてもアバンギャルドで、精神的に崇高な意味を持っています。日本の宗教である禅的な意味合い、西洋におけるアンダーグラウンドなフェティシズム、光と対比する狂気的な闇への執着、そして全ての悲しみを弔う色。 Tatsuro Horikawa [ JULIUS Designer ]

Paris Couture Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017-2018
Before modern science, specimens of all types went undefined, collected loosely in cabinet de curiosités; A veritable wonderland, these collections were composed of elements of the sea and wonders of the Earth. Science sought to organize the chaos, aiming to categorize each and every new discovery and place them in pristine glass boxes. Today, with much already labeled and learned, we're set to create our own cabinets of curiosity, and hearken back to the joy of discovery that once was. This season, Galia Lahav Couture Evening couples clinical inspirations with innovation, and employs new techniques with an inherent savoir-faire, for a range of pieces that hint at these otherworldly wonders. The designs portray a mix of elements drawn from the ocean’s depth, as well as a variety of artistic object. Galia Lahav seek to blur boundaries, redefine terminology, and reconsider fashion's key categories, while maintaining a logical flow between casual garments, cocktail dresses and luxurious gowns. Our collection of curiosities includes unconventional silhouettes– from voluminous trousers and billowing sleeves to new takes on pleating. Expect colors such as deep blues, hues of poppy, soft nudes and touches of elemental metallics. Expect the unexpected.
