Is your concentration gone ‘blu(e)rry’ ?
It is only natural as today is 21st of January, ‘Blue Monday’, officially the most depressing day of the year.

Blue Monday Schueller de Waal Fashion Capsule Collection 2019 le mile studios le mile magazine.gif

Depression is a natural state, blue is a beautiful colour, so the Amsterdam based design studio SCHUELLER DE WAAL [SDW] decided to do something with that instead of hiding underneath their desks. ‘Blue Monday’ marks the soft launch of their now launched SCHUELLER DE WAAL online shop. 

They’re kicking off with the SDW "Blue Monday” Capsule. A collection of shirts inspired by ‘Monday Blues Office Realness’. Referencing and re-interpreting the classic shirt the Shirt Capsule Collection offers a diverse range of fits in various high quality shirting fabrics. Playing with the proportions of classic shirt details serves for a quirky vision of corporate wear and offers you a look and feel in which you can bite Monday in the ass. 

Or at least look
good attempting
to do so.

*the radish arm charm


january 019

The environment + how we humans act around it, is an unquestionable issue nowadays, which leads to questions about our awareness on reaching a more sustainable approach towards nature and agriculture. Farming inspired this fall+winter 019 collection. Reflections about how various ways of growing the food we eat every day, whether it’s in the city or in the countryside affect our life and the planet, encourages us to rethink and develop new methods.

Henrik-Vibskov-THE-RADISH-ARM-CHARM-fashionweek-copenhagen-2019-le-mile-magazine-1.jpg

This collection reflects both the romantic idea about nature + how we interact with it, and the more extreme technology, making it possible to increase and speed up natural processes, like indoor, vertical- and sky farming, green rooftops and urban gardening. The clash between wanting to maintain nature pure as it is and the need to interfere with it, is intriguing and terrifying at the same time.

The idea of farming, nature and technology was the inspiration for the development of the collection. Voluminous silhouettes with details of binding layers together and prints and embroidery which remind of flowers, fruit, vegetables, endless fields, and the long human arms in the agriculture. Humor with a slight touch of melancholy and a reminder of the importance of environmental awareness is present.

A long kinetic installation is slowly moving in waves, while performers dressed like gardeners are walking inside of it. They are carrying ceramic water cans, taking care of the radishes growing inside of it. The radishes are grown in the Henrik Vibskov Studio in Copenhagen and are placed in recycled beer kegs as a part of the urban farming experiment, hence the name of the collection. The installation is a take on the idea of an intriguing future-farming lab.

january 019

PASKAL is renowned for delicate silhouettes, minimalistic shapes and precision that is reminiscent of innovative architecture and modern cultural processes. Beauty is derivedfrom the garments’ core components and construction. The main element of the brand’sDNA is the lassercut technique with the result being a sensitive design with strong personality.

PASKAL_Spring_Summer_2019_Collection_by_Le-Mile-Studios_2.jpg

2013 marks the year Julie Paskal launched her brand: PASKAL. With a background in Architecture and Engineering the designers collections are fluent in shapes, lines and structures. She is one of the first Ukrainian designers to export her collections to all major markets. In 2014 PASKAL was a participant of Guest Nation at Pitti W in Florence, Italy. That same year Julie was shortlisted for the LVMH Prize.

PASKAL Spring-Summer 2019 collection is a playful experiment. Designer explores different folding puzzles and conundrums. To implement this idea, Paskal uses signature laser-cutting technique to develop three-dimensional floral appliques of different shapes.

BAND OF OUTSIDERS
*a/w 019 men´s + women´s collection


january 019

For Autumn Winter 2019, Band of Outsiders’ Creative Director Angelo Van Mol looked at the moon landing as a pioneering event. One source of inspiration was Damien Chazelle’s recent movie First Man, starring Ryan Gosling. But instead of focusing on the moon landing itself, Angelo turned to the people experiencing it while watching this happen in front of their living room’s TVs. The collection is very much about the feel of the end of the 60’s and beginning of the 70’s. The choice of colours and fabric embodies this: warm hues including spice orange, burgundy and olive brown are balanced with camel, navy and black.

That era was also one of protest, empowerment and challenging ideologies which led to a more open-minded society. People wanted to break barriers in every way, especially style , and explore new territories with the moon being the most unreachable and fascinating one.

LE-MILE-Magazine_BANDOFOUTSIDERS_FW19_28.jpg

The brand is also taking an important step forward this season by introducing womenswear for the first time under Van Mol’s creative direction. The collection comprises approximately 8 key looks that are distinctly influenced by the era’s aesthetic: pony skin and heritage check wools come together to give life to blazer and mini skirt co-ords. Corduroy suits and placement print chiffon dresses sit alongside denim (classic blue and brown) as well as cotton shirting (plain, stripes and printed). Angelo Van Mol felt like it was the right time to expand the label’s offering: “I am very excited to extend our universe of humour and inclusivity to women”.

written MALCOLM THOMAS

Last Tuesday, Danish artist and designer, Henrik Vibskov, unveiled a pop-up to kick off Miami Art Basel. In collaboration with independent retailer, Forty Five Ten’s 4510/Six platform for emerging talent. Vibskov designed a custom installation to celebrate the melding of creatives at Art Basel. 

Le-Mile-Magazine-presents-Henrik-Vibskov-MIAMI-2018-Spring-Summer-RUDY-DUBOUÉ-1.jpg

Three modules with black-painted walls and décor contain Vibskov’s SS19 and AW18 collections, the latter inspired by Jan Fabre’s sculpture The Man Who Measures the Clouds. Inspired by the designer’s travels to Kanazawa, Japan. Oversized knits and statement outerwear are interspersed with geometric lines. The poetic gesture of measuring the immeasurable. Dozens of suspended brooms fill the window.

“We are excited to activate our space in collaboration with Henrik’s team during Basel. Henrik, as an artist himself, is a true collaborator and we love his artful, experimental creations. The pop-up will be fun, dynamic, and a great fit for the art crowd,” said Kristen Cole, President and Chief Creative Officer of Forty Five Ten, prior to the launch.

The Henrik Vibskov Miami Visit boutique installation is open through January 4th in 4510/Six’s Little River location.

Pebbles that glisten in shallow streams. The sunset gently refracting soft lines of light from the waters’ edge. The sun spreading its tranquil rays. The Milky Way lights brighten up the night sky in the desert.

Using a colour palette of soft pastels, the collection comprises of her trademark kitten heels decorated with twinkling pebble-shaped ornaments, bringing a new interpretation to the word, oasis.

Vivienne Westwood + Burberry revealed the campaign shots for their first collaborative collection.

Shot by David Sims, the London-shot campaign features an eclectic cast wearing looks from the collection created as a collaboration between Riccardo Tisci, Vivienne Westwood + Andreas Kronthaler.

Le-Mile-Magazine-by-Le-Mile-Studios-presenting-Portrait-of-Riccardo-Tisci,-Vivienne-Westwood-and-Andreas-Kronthaler-c-Courtesy-of-Burberry_-Brett-Lloyd_001.jpg

“Vivienne Westwood was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself and when I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something. - She is a rebel, a punk and unrivalled in her unique representation of British style, which has inspired so many of us. I am so incredibly proud of what we will be creating together.’
Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer

The collection celebrates British style + heritage and is inspired by Vivienne Westwood’s iconic collections, taking a unisex approach across styles. Westwood’s iconic designs – from classic double-breasted jackets, a hugger jacket and a mini kilt to lace up platforms and a beret – are all reimagined in Burberry’s Vintage check.

‘Vivienne Westwood + Burberry’ is the first collaboration for Burberry under its newly appointed Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci. Vivienne Westwood + Riccardo Tisci were united by a shared vision to support and promote Cool Earth, a UK based non-profit organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change, through this collaboration. At the heart of the collection, is an oversized T-shirt dedicated to the charity, with a handwritten message from Vivienne. She will also customise four exclusive items from the collection to be auctioned to raise further support for Cool Earth.

The cast includes: Kate Moss, Sistren, Leonard Emmanuel, LadyFag, Josh Quinton, Andy Bradin, DelaRosa, Claudia Lavender, Marco Motta, Sashadavai and Jacob Shifrin as well as Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler.

*3rd collaborative collection


december 018

As a woman open to all possibilities, Converse and Miley partnered to encourage that feeling of independence and self-empowerment. As she prepares to release her upcoming single “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart,” this latest collection celebrates Miley’s ongoing evolution as a woman – taking fans along for the ride from her first Converse collection to a more provocative place in concept and execution.

LE-MILE-Magazine_Converse_HO18_MILEY_CAR_LOOK3B_563719C_0049_RGB.jpg

After all, as Miley has shown time and time again, fitting in is overrated. Reminiscent of her audacious and expressive persona first revealed on the tracks of her Bangerz album, the 19-piece collection is filled with brushed velvet, glitter, and of course, platform Chucks. The Chuck Taylor All Star Lift and Platform have become a signature of the Converse x Miley Cyrus look, elevating the classic silhouette, using stacked EVA foam. In this latest collection, the sneakers see a vinyl execution along with a brushed velvet take – offering two different, but equally colorful and bold approaches to holiday dressing. On the patent sneakers, Converse’s Star iconography appears in a repeat trend on the foxing tape whereas as glitter printed foxing tape complements the brushed velvet sneakers to create visual interest through texture.

For those looking to express themselves with a more everyday sneaker, the Chuck Taylor All Star “Patent” comes in black and white, with contrasting Star graphics printed on the foxing tape and laces. A brushed velvet take of the sneakers is also available in black, with a glitter printed foxing.

The themes found on the footwear continue in the collection of apparel, composed of Miley’s favorite apparel styles and cuts.

From the dark and light hues of dark burgundy and gnarly blue on Converse x Miley Cyrus Track Suit to the repeat Star application on the Converse x Miley Cyrus Velour Sweatshirt knits and sweat pants or the Converse x Miley Cyrus Jacquard Glitter Bodysuit (a personal favorite of Miley’s) – the collection is designed for you to mix and match, dress up or dress down. Stay warm with Converse x Miley Cyrus Satin Puffer Jacket and prepare to stand out as you step into the New Year.

seen Matthias Neumann + Olga Khristolyubova

TRAUMABARUNDKINO is thrilled to present it’s first in house production, the cross-pollinated fashion performance NOW YOU MAY TELL THAT I’VE BEEN SEEN BY YOU. We showcase fashion and contemporary dance in an event elaborated as part of a series that aims towards the experimental staging of a vision that challenges the norm of what can be perceived as a fashion presentation.

Don-Aretino-TRAUMABARUNDKINO-LE-MILE-Magazine-Berlin.jpg

Thus, we bring together the collections of emerging designers and present them in a non conventional display that conveys the concept of fashion with a reformulated approach. Working closely with choreographers, dancers, sound and light designers, offers us the challenge of engaging the public more directly, where content is being delivered with a strong emphasis on physicality and free form expression that results in a versatile performance.

The myth of Diana and Actaeon outlines this show – a venture into the conflicts inhabiting human nature at it’s most fundamental level. The piece exposes primal human behavior with the implicit price of being consumed by its intensity, one gradually becoming a victim of one’s own drive. We explore the dimensions of voice as the only non-organic form of expression in the human body. We channel its raw power outwards. Exer- cising unprocessed, unfocused anger as creative liberation is an authentic form of shaping one’s presence. The acceptance of raw aggression and its tones with a non-judgemental attitude enables us to embrace its potential. As the inner struggle takes over the body, words become ranting, demeanour becomes rage – a fully rounded human being shines through in all its complexity.

Olga-Khristolyubova-TRAUMABARUNDKINO-LE-MILE-Magazine-Berlin.jpg

The project TRAUMABARUNDKINO arose as an answer to the need of having a fresh in- clusive space which allows a better, more authentic dialogue between mediums like contemporary dance, fashion, cinematography, video art and club culture.

We aim to generate a heterogeneous and imersive environment which offers a very particular experience, as we encourage the artists to make use of all the options Trauma Bar und Kino provides simul- taniously, from the cinema to the video boxes to the dancefloor and the sound equipment. We believe that giving the artist the full freedom to unfold their personal ‘universes’ is the fundament of having the place changing all the time, taking our public by surprise. In a few words Trauma Bar und Kino is a meeting point for arts and club culture, breaking down barriers and culti- vating relationships.

*Lovina: depicted


november 018

“Lovina: depicted” is a collaboration between fashion designer Merilin Kolk and photographer Cecilia Riis that explores the ambivalence in Kolk’s BA Graduation Collection. Her BA Graduation Collection challenges the sexualization of the female body by covering it. The collection attempts to explore the identity of covered women in our time.

It questions whether covering up the female body can enhance feminine sexuality. Can it feel liberating, and impart dignity and sensuality to women? The graduation project also investigates whether covering, too, can become a form of objectification of the body.

LE-MILE-Magazine-Merilin-Kolk-by-Cecilia-Riis-6.jpg

Merilin’s designs are born from ideas, emotions and observations of the human being in that particular space in time. She works with such concepts as relationships, belonging, identity and sense of reality. Her work explores + pays tribute to the vulnerable within us, and she tries to depict this in wearable form.

Merilin Kolk was born and raised in Estonia, and moved to Norway at the age of 19. Merilin graduated from the National Academy of the Arts in Oslo with a BA in clothing design in June 2018. In Oslo she completed a master’s degree in social economics, before pursuing her passion for fashion design.

MONCLER Genius
*The Project


october 018

An explosion of creative energy; this is the lifeblood running through the Moncler Genius project, a new multi-faceted chapter for the brand combining a variety of contributions which coexist alongside one another, creating a mosaic of differences and extraordinary individuality. These varied voices and approaches, some of which differ vastly from each other, are combined with highly distinctive languages, all brought together in a single design process conceived by Moncler.

>>For Moncler
Genius
change
is necessary,

an ongoing renewal which prompts us to look far ahead, beyond every aesthetic and ideological frontier. Moncler continues to explore the infinite possibilities of its uniqueness, adopting a special mix with autonomous, distinctive meanings. It is as if the present can be read in its contrasting lines whilst projecting itself into a future which begins now. Moncler Genius is a launch platform built on an unrivalled capacity for innovation and technological research, driven by unshakable faith in creativity.

LE-MILE-Magazine-MONCLER-PALM-ANGELS_MONCLER-GENIUS-FW18-(8).jpg

We have chosen designers that differ greatly from each other as we have always spoken to different generations”, says Remo Ruffini, Chairman and CEO of Moncler, who originally conceived this ground-breaking turning point for Moncler.

We constantly need to offer new experiences and new ideas. Moncler Genius is divided into several collections over the year. We have overhauled everything, by overcoming the very concept of seasons. Our approach is monthly, weekly, daily. An approach which considerably reduces the time that elapses between the collections’ presentation and when they actually arrive in the stores”.

There are eight sections that together express the Moncler Genius project, and which involve different creative figures. A task force to yield as many creative areas which define the company’s identity. The brand’s DNA is revealed through the various visions, supporting and cultivating the many and varied options for bringing them to life. Moncler Genius overcomes any and every timeframe and approach: from next June, the collections will be making singularly their debut in Moncler boutiques and selected multi-brand shops and department stores, and will available for a defined period of time, until October, when they’ll be brought together in several Moncler flagship stores as well as pop-up stores in various cities around the world, including NY and Tokyo. A succession which is as emblematic as it is rapid all over the world, and must once again represent speed, movement and true dynamism.

The world has changed”, concludes Remo Ruffini “the digital era has given us a new strength. The consumer wants a less filtered, more direct and above all continuous relationship. This strategic change in direction is the answer to this specific need, as well as a desire”.

ANNA OCTOBER
*Capote´s swan


october 018

For Fall 2018, the Anna October lady is at ease with herself. Her natural manners, along with the grace of her body and mind lustre her clothes. She wears them proudly. Whatever landscape shefinds herself in, it’s her inner landscape that matters. She looks rich as a Capote’s swan, confident asan American feminist artist, feminine as a Parisian demimonde, at the days when women spent hours in the dressing room.

LE-MILE-Magazine-Anna-October-AW18_4.jpg

Wearing the same ensemble, she spends her morning in the countryside, day at the office, and in the evening, she makes her impressive entrance to the most immoderately luxurious of the parties. While being look at, she listens to herself.

Natural fabrics,
bias cuts,
flowing silhouettes

and handmade details highlight the collection. AnnaOctober reinterprets each of the brand’s signature pieces in silk, cotton and wool. Whimsical midi- dresses, tailoring with a playful twist, loose high waisted pants and blouses, shoulder-revealing or inspired by the classics of menswear, make a wardrobe for life, where perfect simplicity and deep luxury are never a contradiction. Artificial flowers, hand-made as a touching curtsy to the values of slow fashion, act as a charming accessory to the offering.

Ultimately comfortable, elaborate and perfectly simplistic at the same time, the collection praises the woman of thousand faces, staying true to the elegance she was born with.

*The Gateway To Fashion

october 018

During the last days of Paris fashion week, Dutch design duo SCHUELLER DE WAAL present their vision on fashion in an autonomous presentation at Palais de Tokyo, Toguna. Right when the marathon of fashion weeks frenzy is coming to an end, SDW offers fashion victims or victims of fashion the opportunity of some well deserved Fashion Therapy. Model Iekeliene Stange acts as the fashion therapist, guiding the audience through ‘The Gateway To Fashion’.

Schueller-de-Waal-he-Gateway-To-Fashion-LE-MILE-Magazine-4.jpg

For Spring/Summer 2019 SCHUELLER DE WAAL offer FASHION as HYPNOSIS THERAPY. Rather than offering a new collection the designers want to make a statement about the fast pace of fashion and their incapabilities of keeping up. Driven by the idea of giving former designs a new context and using that as research for the development of new design ideas SDW STUDIO presents a fashion film installation, ‘The Gateway To Fashion’.

The presentation of this autonomous statement serves as a suggestive form of ‘FASHION THERAPY’.

With the thought of slowing down their audience and creating time to reflect in a period of constant rush, SDW make the link to HYPNOSIS THERAPY. The protagonist of the film, a hypnosis therapist with mesmerising eyeballs, takes the viewer through steps of induction going deeper into a spiralling trance world of eclectic future fashion suggestions with every step. The fashion suggestions show a fictive persona representing the viewers repressed inner fashion spirit on an intuitive journey towards unleashed creativity. Just like hypnosis therapists SDW STUDIO aims to plant inspirational alterations and alternative perspectives on fashion in the viewers brain to catalyse change.

In the film the characters are dressed in a mix of SCHUELLER DE WAAL'S collections, communicating that the duo believes in a value of design which remains over time. ‘The Gateway To Fashion’ shows an overview of their work reshuffled into a different aesthetic. The lookbook depicts both worlds of the film. To create new looks from past collections the duo has strictly split apart the two main directions of their collections, classic minimalism vs. quirky, surreal maximalism. The skin of the model reflects actual scenes from the film and becomes a symbol of the connection between real and fiction, the link between both worlds; the gateway.

Pringle of Scotland has long admired the work of illustrator Frida Wannerberger. Each season she illustrates the collection’s key looks, and we were delighted to have her back for Autumn/Winter ‘18 to illustrate our hero pieces in her own unique style.

LE-MILE-Magazine-Frida-Wannerberger-x-Pringle-of-Scotland-all_cutout.jpg

We were also extremely excited to introduce Frida’s work to our products. Launching later this year as part of the Autumn Winter ‘18 collection, our iconic Pringle lion and distinctive diamond argyle get a fresh perspective from Frida, who hand-painted her version of the famous designs for new and exclusive prints.

Frida has always had an intense love for fashion. She trained at Central Saint Martins and after graduating produced merchandise imagery for the IsabellaBlow: FashionGalore! Exhibition at Somerset House. She was also invited as fashion week illustrator-in-residence at Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio. On top of all her project work Frida is a visiting lecturer on the BA Fashion Illustration Course at London College of Fashion.

october 018

At some point in our youth, we stop playing with toys. But the obsession we have with “things” grows stronger as we get older. We dress as a means of self- expression.

le-mile-magazine_Converse_JWA_FELT_PINK_162843C_Detail1.jpg

We buy objects – however mundane they might be – because they deliver happiness into our lives. Some collect sneakers. Some collect Pez. And some, like Jonathan Anderson, collect art. Also in the second column of Converse x JW Anderson the designer underlines his obsession with art and craft.

The Converse x JW Anderson Chuck 70 *Felt is the exuberant result of Jonathan Anderson´s life-long obsession. 

Anderson has said, the creative process is a giant patchwork of information and imagery “in search of the new, weird, and wonderful.” As the designer continues his collaboration with Converse, he applies this process to, and his passion for art and craft, to the mainstay in fashion and style, the iconic Chuck.

A brilliant combination of colors inform the design of the Chuck 70 *Felt. Premium felt transforms the Chuck 70 into a colorful, bespoke Capsule Collection for fall + winter 018.

But maybe, after all, the Chuck is art?!

*spring+summer 019


october 018

Struck by the timeless modernity of the design language, the effortless construction, and the balanced colour composition of Frank Lloyd Wright´s building - the Johnson Wax Headquarter, Jennifer Brachmann was convinced to create a minimalist collection inspired by the architecture‘s gentle strengths, filigree contours + minimalist opulence.

Brachmann_Spring-Summer-2019-Collection-LE-MILE-Magazine-4.jpg

BRACHMANN‘s 019 summer collection takes the airy mood and organic elements of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and transposes them into contemporary fashion. Long and flowing pleats in dresses, blouses, trousers, and coats, resemble the building’s superbly light pillars. The sleeves‘ rounded raglan constructions mirror the arcs in its lucid roof construction.

The dynamically organic structures are translated into falling pleats that open when moved, while vertically structured fabrics like corduroy or subtle pinstripes designs take up the verticality of the spacious room impression.

Translucent fabrics play with the spherical light effects and the dreamy atmosphere in the swimming pool. Different haptical characteristics of the building‘s materials can be retrieved in different fabrics like silk, cotton batiste, cotton, light merino wool, and corduroy. The collection‘s colour palette transposes the buildings colour mood into today ranging from warm gold, beige, rosé, to bronze, while light blue, teal, and white set counterpoints.

"London-based designer Elliss Solomon has joined forces with SARDIN to create an exclusive capsule collection, celebrating feminist heroes of the past."

 

Founded in 2016, Elliss Solomon established her brand out of a desire to create clothing using environmentally conscious design methods and minimal waste. Solomon maintains that it is vital for her brand to have a low impact on the earth; her designs use natural fabrics, from organic cotton, to hemp and bamboo. With creativity and production processes sharing the same East London space, the Hackney-based designer believes upholding a low carbon footprint is central to her brand’s values. From her print references and tongue-in-cheek placements, to her use of recycled jersey, her namesake brand is underwear and layerwear for today’s smart girl. 

In collaboration with SARDIN, ELLISS has created a range of layerwear paying tribute to activists from the past: Emmeline Lawrence and Millicent Fawcett. The campaigns of the 19th Century, by both Lawrence and Fawcett, for women’s rights are still recognised as significant to this day. Bold black and white screen print of both iconic women feature prominently in this capsule collection for SARDIN.

What makes something art, anyway?

At some point in our youth, we stop playing with toys. But the obsession we have with “things” grows stronger as we get older. We dress as a means of self- expression. We buy objects – however mundane they might be – because they deliver happiness into our lives. Some collect sneakers. Some collect Pez. And some, like Jonathan Anderson, collect art.

A brilliant combination of textures inform the design of the Chuck 70. “Gloss” in the form of patent leather, an exuberant application of color, and laces that mimic the stucco of San Francisco, make even the most youthful of sneakers, feel toy-like. But maybe, after all, the Chuck is art.

Each clothes mix simple shapes with playful gelato pastels or the vivid colors of the beach towels. They are also spiced up with patterns inspired by the tarmac of airports, stripes of the beach umbrellas you can find on the pop seasides, or the 70s blossom wallpaper of a kitsch bungalow.

You will also find our emblematic long sleeves shirt, rethought with bold colors, soft or sometimes audacious stripes, but that can finally become a djellaba for the more relaxed ones. Pants and sweatshirts will mix easily with the colors of the t-shirts and the jackets, creating graphic and vivid or romantic and soft shades. Contrasts between retro and technical fabrics, thin or big stripes, big splashes or soft touches of colors, create an evolving and playful silhouette.

Pre-Spring collection 2019 was inspired by the beauty of nature, as well as ancient landscaped woodland garden Leonardslee started at the end of 19th century in West Sussex. This beautiful garden has breathtaking views of the English countryside and blooming displays of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, which sprouts create incredible plant patterns. A floral easiness and transparency are the theme of NADYA DZYAK new collection. 

Being brand’s signature pieces transparent dresses + blouses, made of airy summer fabrications, cover a body like fluffy clouds.

Due to masterful combination of pleated details and flounces together with geometric cutouts and asymmetric silhouettes, the new collection sharply reveals a theme of femininity and sensuality. Traditionally, NADYA DZYAK collection is defined by the use of intricate hand-stitched elements and bespoke sophisticated elements of décor. The main colors used in the collection are smoky vintage rose, vanilla, coral red, the tints of amethyst and light mint.

By 1970 the Chuck had evolved to become the pinnacle of function and utility for sport, and was considered the best basketball sneaker ever. The Chuck 70 is built off of the original 1970s design, with premium materials and an extraordinary attention to detail. A shoe so rooted in tradition that it has its own instant history.

That’s the Chuck 70. It’s not a shoe. It’s the shoe.

The Chuck 70 Trek Tech shoe is a classic recrafted with obsessively high-function details. Engineered with a tough canvas upper, hiking laces and a popped toe bumper, this pair goes as hard as you do. 

Chuck 70 Color Block – Don’t sweat the details.
We did that for you. The Chuck 70 Super Color Block sneaker has design details for days, like ombre washed laces inspired by evening skies and graphic hues on the upper and midsole. 

Chuck 70 – The best thing just goz better.  
This is what happens when you obsess over the details. You obsess, obsess, and obsess. You get Chuck 70. Chuck 70 – The best ever.

JOSHUA MILLARD
Resort 019 


june 018

The Resort 19 collection from Joshua Millard pays homage to the pastoral undercurrent of the brand. Inspired by his childhood memories and the farming culture of Dorset. The collection encompasses agricultural references with luxury fabrics including;

lamb nappa, sandwash silk, organic cotton, wool crepe + trigrado shearling.

 
Joshua-Millard-Pre-SS-2019-Spring-Summer-Collection-LE-MILE-Magazine-1.jpg
 

Simplistic, effortless and fluid silhouettes are teamed with relaxed tailoring and a range of contemporary suiting. Farming and pastoral references are incorporated in to a multitude of feminine and masculine separates, lending to the integral premise of layering at the heart of this collection: silk and alpaca knit jumpers, field jackets, dungarees and shearling scarves. 

With previous successful womenswear collections accomplished, this season Joshua embarks into the realms of contemporary menswear. Continuing to grow and diversify his much-loved British brand. The whimsical colour palette of the collection pays reverence to Joshua’s rural roots including: earthy plaid browns, muted plum, eucalyptus, primrose and soft grey and creamy off-white tones. 

Hero pieces of the collection include the dorper brushed cotton kimono trench coat, perndale nappa jacket, ryeland reversible shearling coat and brushed mohair jacket made from 100% angora goat hair, which exude agricultural references yet highlight transitional ease of wear at the brand’s core. 

As ever, sustainability is at the forefront of his brand. Working with independent makers and farmers who share the same regards for sustainability and conservation. The brand places great emphasis on the quality of fabric, with the endeavour to ethically sourcing all the shearling used throughout the collection from Josh’s family farm in Dorset.

A percentage of sales then being donated to local wildlife preservation.

The accessory offering this season includes bum bags, bucket hats and visors stamped with thebrand’s updated B logo.

Boxy printed camp collar shirts are worn as twin sets or paired with straight trousers, just as workwear separates become a modern suit version highlighting the nonchalant tailoring options. Amix ‘n’ match of formal and leisurely is seen throughout: Band of Outsiders pair a tailored shirt with vintage inspired tracksuit, or double breasted suiting options with ‘pop over’ rain oversized rain jacket.

This season also sees a number of highly anticipated collaborations, including Italian sportswear cult label Sergio Tacchini and quintessentially British eyewear brand Kirk Originals.

The prints were designed by Brooklyn based artist Amit Greenberg who is well known for his projects in collaboration with Colette. The artist’s drawings were inspired by memories of excursions to ancient roman ruins across Italy, playing on the Italian school trip theme explored across the collection.

The presentation will mark Design Director Angelo van Mol and Brand Director Daniel Hettmann’s 4th collection for the label.

*Cultish Cuts and Consistency

written MALCOLM THOMAS

Bass.

It was the first word that came to mind when I thought of the Boris Bidjan Saberi collection. On the docks of the Cité de la Mode et du Design a caravan of stone-faced models in distressed leather stomped by. Tape tailing behind them like fury. The walls shook as slouchy silhouettes in grey, brown and black bounced with the hardness of the beat. Much like the drum Saberi marches to.

 

 
Lookbook_SS19-Boris-Bidjan-Saberi-Paris-Fashion-Week-2018-2.jpg
 

Cultish cuts and the un-fragile fragility of the fabrics made the anti-fashion fashion mainstay someone who didn’t disappoint. You won’t find any cutes-y flower motifs here. One thing Saberi is good for, among many others is consistency. Probably the reason why the crowd paid homage to Saberi by wearing it, head to foot and why when the show ceased, sans finale walk (because who even does a finale walk anymore, right?) the crowd howled. 

The line-up stood ghoulishly along the periphery of the runway as guests took pause, turned around and realized it was Saberi’s way of letting us see the clothes one last time.

So like sheep we huddled, pushed, and shoved, getting our shots, selfies and IG stories in amongst a line-up of Saberi soldiers in muted hues.

Three women, performers, dubbed the “VIBS Air Repair Service” remove cloths from wind turbines made of recycled sheets. In their tea-colored muslin uniforms they control the wind, and therefore, the show. Medieval bonnets, linen khaki suits, and chunky roped sandals make my acquaintance. A scalloped seersucker dress blows by; a raised polka dot shirt raises my heart rate. 

 
Henrik-Vibskov_LE-MILE-Magazine-Paris-Fashion-Week-Sprig-2019-VICTORJONES_5.jpg
 

 “One can’t see the wind, but it shapes and changes things on its way forward,” said the program. Everything but my mind. I’m now convinced Henrik Vibskov’s high concept, slow fashion approach in this day and age, is rather avant garde in it itself. Even more so than the clothes to be worn. And to be honest, to dissect a collection like Vibskov’s is like taking the brush from a painter before their final stroke. 

Vibskov gave new breadth to the phrase, wherever the winds blows. Layering his models in parachute prints, vintage-like “Soap Opera” sweaters, and Madras button-ups. “Due to Sudden Weather Change,” (the name of the collection), was much like the human experience, it was vast, varied and wasn’t always easy to interpret. But like Tina Turner once sang,

“the wheels just keep on turning.”

I was hit hard by chain mail tops, silver jewels that hung from hoods, and pick axes used as accessories. Social uniforms and protection. White Chelsea boots paired with pale violet denim. Made in Japan. A slick PVC raincoat that had me wishing for rain, and a leather cowboy zip-front shirt evocative of the Mariachi costume had me thinking about joining the rodeo.

(I wish I was kidding).

I mean this is the same brand who created a sandal for your sneakers. Just you know, umm… slide and strap em’ in. A collaboration with Puma. This season in a full line of colorways. And since we’re on the subject, whatever your hue, chic is the look. Tonight, I encourage you to wear your armor.

*Seducing the Eye at Maison Mihara Yasuhiro


june 018

written MALCOLM THOMAS

Mihara Yasuhiro began as a shoe designer. An ambitious design student with big ideas. Twenty years later, in a cobblestone garage at 22 rue de Lübeck in Paris he’s still thinking big. Celebrating two decades of cerebral foreplay, the designer curled some pages from his own book. “Proto-Type II” it was dubbed, is a re-constructing of an inquisitive spirit, the program stated. A spirit which has undoubtedly earned him veteran status in an industry of high turnover.

 

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-Paris-Fashion-Week-2018-MIHARA_YASUHIRO_SS2019__012.jpg
 

How can you turn an otherwise everyday cardigan into a fashion statement? Design it backwards. Sweats not acceptable? Attach an additional pant to it. Want to conquer the denim on denim look? Wear as much denim as you can possibly strap to your back. For the laymen, these concepts can be quite provocative. Why worry about thinking outside the box, when you can re-design it, Yasuhiro says. 

While many of the pieces are not what most would deem “wearable” the very notion of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary is enough to satisfy my palette. The “is fashion art?” debate has been going on forever. And sure, Mihara Yasuhiro certainly won’t be hanging in the Louvre, but when fashion can make you think, when it can leave you scratching your head in bewilderment at how the fuck a garment can be worn, let alone sewn to seduce the eye of the beholder, the question answers itself. Or more simply put, a model sported a blouson with words on the back, it read

“This is Tomorrow”.

It was part of China Day when I saw it in New York. A series of collections meant to introduce trendy sportswear brands from the East to the North American market.

So naturally, with the success in New York this season Li-Ning came to Paris.

Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts I couldn’t make this show. (Puts foot in mouth). But from the looks of it, the namesake of legendary Chinese Olympic gymnast cast quite the spell on the City of Light. Somewhere between the intersection of future and heritage lay a collection infused with a deep sense of Chinese pride and off-kilter apparel.

Using a color palette of olive, orchid, nuclear green, and national colors, cardinal red and bright yellow, Dolman-sleeved track tops and patchwork-drop shoulder jackets, Li-Ning brought streetwear to modernity.

Cmmn Swdn vs. Fast Fashion
*s+s019 @Paris Fashion Week


june 018

written MALCOLM THOMAS

It’s a jumble out there,” read the program. As I stood in front of a literal bail of discarded clothing, a “Cmmn Swdn” placard placed in the center as if to hold it all. If only bold statements in leather, tulle, and mesh could solve the crisis of overproduction. Try to imagine a world sans resort, pre-fall and fast fashion. In a word, “impossible”. While the Scandinavian house by way of London, is surely not in the business of environmental activism, their take on the subject matter was impressive, if not coolly creative.

There were sheer tops fused with unlikely textures like wool and denim, deconstructed shoes recycled from their AW18 collection in collaboration with shoe artisan, Helen Kirkum, a few practical pieces too, like plaid leather mac coats, and pinstripe suiting, worn with the ever-popular dad sneaker. A personal favorite was the button-ups with sleeves used practically as decoration. A clever take on art vs. commerce. I mean some men, doactually still do that 9 to 5 thing. Emphasis on some.

Not to fret, if you like lounging round' the streets of trendy nightclubs your parents never knew they wanted to get into, there are pieces for you, if you’re a slave to the office but have the freedom to spice up that work wardrobe, there are many pieces for you, and if you’re just a ridiculously good-looking model type, there’s are (many) pieces for you.

Young. Political. Cohesive. Cool. It’s all for you.

Looking at what happiness means in different regions of the world, the Chalayan Women’s Collection evolves in a spirit of re-enacting and abstractly depicting various historical world events. Cultural tendencies are applied as certain actions inspired by these events and placed onto ordinary clothes.

According to this process, fabrics and prints are developed to portray pivotal events and differences in attitude on the respective continents. 

In the Centre of the World, expansionism in the Roman era is represented by The Abduction of Sabine Women, dating to around 752 BC in Roman Italy. In this light, jackets as seen in a modern wardrobe are displaced on the body to simulate an attempted abduction. 

Not so different from current world events, this Roman disaster is further represented by the volumes, which are picked up in the garments themselves. In another instance, built-in straps prevent garments from being pulled away any farther. These details then evolve into bag-like pockets integrated into the garment to empower the wearer, and to emphasize the ‘irremovability’ of what is worn. 

The East is represented by a propensity for preservation and protection, with pieces wrapped and guarded by tulle and cotton silk. The South is symbolized by hedonism and chaos. The North is shown as a grid system in conjunction with nature. The West is represented by the power of individuality, upon which the whole collection is stylistically built. 

Textiles include lightweight tailoring fabrics, printed textures, jacquard with transparent windows, lightweight papery outerwear materials, wool cotton mix tailoring fabrics, white and black denim and lightweight Japanese Jerseys. 

Colours are classic neutrals with bright pop colours mixed in

With his latest autumn+winter 018 collection, Joshua Millard offers a fresh perspective to his signature tribute to rural workwear. 

 
Portrait-Joshua-Millard-Le-Mile-Magazine.jpg
 

Now in his fifth season, the luxury, ready-to-wear designer continues to draw inspiration from his childhood memories of farming in Dorset and specifically, the rolling chalk hills of Southern England known as the Downlands.

Agricultural references seep into this texture-rich collection and manifest as English heritage reimagined and made relevant for today’s luxury market. Patchwork farming shirts, tailored tweed suiting and shearling outerwear add to the nostalgic theme of the collection while sheepskin and tweed girth belts and field hats, which were once worn low at the back to protect from the sun, provide traditional references. A tonal palate with accents of Cyan blue, Iris purple and Ivy greens compliment the collection. Dramatically oversized Alpaca knitted scarfs contrast with the minimal clean finishings of covered buttons, eyelets and raw edged fringing.

The contrast fit of tailored and relaxed cuts highlight Millard’s craftsmanship and amplifies his attention to outerwear, suiting and shirting.

Collection 02  


june 2018
 

Collection 02 affixes acute lines to sensual forms; blurring the distinction between form and function through discriminating workmanship and attention to detail. By eschewing the trends of an ever-accelerating culture, the label achieves a sublime luxuriousness in its calculated simplictiy.

LE-MILE-Magazine-collection-lookbook-02-venczel-fw18.jpg

Every articulation of the label relays this to the wearer; from the techniques behind the Saddlery, to the humanity of the pieces when worn. The feel of the handbags and weight of the jewelry immediately convey that the pieces chase the particular distinction of becoming a future generation’s heirloom.


After presenting the first collection in Paris in September 017 Venczel now coutns some of the world’s most influential stores as stockists; including Totokaelo, lncc and Rare market. Collection 02 features handbags and accessories in vegetable tanned, full grain bovine leather. Designed in Denmark and made in Italy, the collection will be available in selected stores next month.
