For the s+s 019 season, the upbeat and jovial Kiev-Paris based fashion label Drag+Drop comes in strong with pop sensations and viscous silhouettes.

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

Anna October *Capote´s swan

The collection brings together a complete everyday wardrobe, playfully embracing this season’s theme, with varsity inspired jersey, ‘dropped collar’ tensile shirting, and ultra-lightweight unstructured tailoring.
Boris Bidjan Saberi *Cultish Cuts and Consistency
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.
Henrik Vibskov *is Gone With the Wind
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.
Seducing the Eye at Maison Mihara Yasuhiro *PFW_SS019
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.
SANKUANZ *for Protection
It was hard and plastic. Cut-outs of crosses, eagles and axes decorated the Sankuanz show invitation. At the time I didn’t know they were Shangguan Zhe’s interpretations on border patrol. I didn’t know what to expect. Then the lights dimmed. There was no time to settle in.
LI-NING *takes paris
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. And considering the influx of Chinese capital particularly in the luxury market it was no wonder even then that the space was packed. So naturally, with the success in New York this season Li-Ning came to Paris.
Cmmn Swdn vs. Fast Fashion *s+s019 @Paris Fashion Week
“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.
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.
JOSHUA MILLARD *Childhood Memories
With the new collection, Joshua Millard offers a fresh perspective to his signature tribute to rural workwear.

Dog Gear *s+s 018*
Each year catwalks all over Europe are flooded with models as people from all over the globe watch attentively taking in the upcoming season’s trends. Fashion experts including Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar have listed trends for spring and summer 2018 to include sheer, pastel colours, plastic and fringe. But as Harper’s Bazaar points out, the over-riding trend amongst designer heavyweights is to stick to what you know, further exemplified by the return of Burberry’s iconic plaid in this year’s runway shows.
DANSE LENTE *BODILY LINES*
For S+S 018, the brand has focused upon striking silhouettes and sculptural design to reshape modern expectations of a daily accessory. Think gymnastics - clean lines of vaults, rings and pommel horses that place natural curves against a backdrop of strong edges and robust hardware. What's more, the line references the bodily lines of an actual gymnast to add a further sense of fluidity to the collection.
A musing on the concept of ritual, the Aphid A+W018-019 collection explores the notion of formal dressing and dressing for ceremony, the traditions for men & women, nostalgia and the definition of "dressing up" in a contemporary setting. Having researched the ceremonial dress codes of Asian cultures, especially the hakama trousers of traditional Japanese cultural events, the concept of layering became a key focus for the new collection. On-going Aphid signatures, meshed with the composition and deconstruction of the classic suit, inform a shifting silhouette of pieces that can be worn together or styled independent of the whole.
The Eighties via old-school films Blade Runner and Tron; computer games and arcades, the buzz of pinball machines, their primary-bright graphics; the allure of the power suit, the even greater allure of its neon-bold colours; and that perfect kind of awkward style: in a collection that is nostalgic to the era, Roberta Einer rekindles the best bits of the Eighties to create her own updated take, one that comes imbued with a renewed glamour for autumn+winter 018.
