Carol Christian Poell for Lift étage 20th anniversary 

"Connect" 

White cordovan leather 


From what I gather there were 20 pairs produced and as always there is something more to this offering from Carol. The idea seems to be that each pair will be changed by it’s individual wearer and the conditions in which they are worn. For example being exposed to light is mentioned in the article. The leather looks as if it’s been painted with dye and left at that. The shades of white created by the underlying skin tone and deep scarring are unbelievable. Not to mention the textures throughout. As always it’s nice to see Carol producing new products even if it’s not a full collection.

Boris Bidjan Saberi chain seam leather jacket.

Certainly some elements comparable to Carol’s work here but that seems to be an all too common thread with a lot of brands these days.

It appears Boris is making his way in to women’s fashion.

This is the first teaser I have seen of it but I am sure excited to see ladies donning these aggressive garments.

Carol Christian Poell MNSTRM/DWNSTRM SS2004I recently heard online that Carol’s long time assistant left recently, to move to berlin and begin work on other projects. Until she is replaced he wont be working on a new collection until she is replaced. It’s unlikely we’ll see anything before 2013 and even then it’s not looking sure. Thankfully there are still items turning up from his previous collection that I had no idea existed. It will be interesting to see how (if at all) his work changes when a new assistant is brought board. Information obtained from SZ
