No, No, Yes! x Some/Things

I’m so happy to see this kind of thing coming from the talented fellows at NNY. Some/Things always has great collaborations but they’ve certainly picked a gem with this one and of course these artists deserve the recognition. I’ve been using their Shosa wallet for a little over a year now after having visited their studio in Japan last year. The scarred boar leather has barely sustained any wear which is a testament to its resilience. 

Anyway it’s fantastic to see more and more from these guys.

Brethren gloves

Quite simple yet with the chain detail they are very original and carry a certain elegance.

Undercover Women’s S/S 14

Undercover fits in to my personal universe in the same way as many of the brands I talk about here; I know the collection will be good but it’s just a matter of how refined each season will be. 

 This spring was no exception as Jun presented a gorgeous collection that really caught me by surprise. I’m usually quite adverse to printed shirts with slogans or text but I do quite like the ones offered up here. What’s more is I saw a photo of one of the shirts before exploring the rest of the collection and that alone excited me to no end. 

The collection itself seems to be almost split between these kinds of over sized shirts and a series of more elegant looks. Not to say the duality is overly contrasting in fact I think it fits together quite well. 

I feel as though the last look I posted encapsulates the collection really well; feminine, strong, with a subdued edge,

Ann Demeulemeester SS14 Womens

Ann my dear… Of course this is amazing. Perfect even. 
I loved the men’s collection earlier this year but the prints and embroidery is a little too playful for my personal taste. Now apply that same whimsy and elegance to a women’s outfit and it is nigh perfection. 

I can’t be disappointed by Ann as I’ve surely mentioned before but I can’t even begin to see any faults in this collection. The whole aesthetic direction seems so suited for women it’s undeniable how gorgeous these looks are. 

The hats, although I doubt we will see many on the streets, are perhaps the most beautiful part of the collection. The oversize warped brims float down the runway as if the models are adorned with giant flower petals.

Rick Owens Women’s SS14 

Photographed by Lea Colombo for Dazed Digital

reat collection… as always. I liked this more than the Men’s spring summer shown earlier this year. It seems a little more complex but still very comparable to the earlier men’s offering. I’ve probably watched the video for the presentation about five times and I’m absolutely in love with it. The strength, the energy, and the movement of the performance all showcased the collection in such a perfect light. 

Of course there has a been a huge backlash due to Rick’s choice in models. Depending on what you read or who you talk to there are a ton of different opinions regarding the models body type and how they looked in the clothing. I wont be discussing that… I don’t believe that was the motivation behind the choices that were made. The strength and confidence these women exuded was perfect and that’s all that needs to be said.
