When someone got really the feeling of mix-matching different patterns, materials in the same "main" colour - in this case green.

SILK ROAD


Two days ago I reported of ChristopheLemaire´s departure from Hermès…so it´s a perfect time to look his penultimate womenswear collection for the French luxury house. For the F/W 2014/2015 Lemaire perfectly mixed the aesthetic codes of Hermès with his own style. The collection is a sort of an imaginary journey in the ancient East-West trading route, known also as a “Silk Road”. His woman is mysterious, exotic, independent, but without losing her elegance and intellectual touch. We saw nearly-radical minimalism, made of  most luxurious materials, such as crocodile skin, cashmere, silk, woollen cloth, wool, leather, astrakhan, mink and shearling, Oversize coats, suits and cabans, straight A-line skirts, streamlined dresses with a label signature draping and patterns, men style accessories such as loafers with tassels or belts, boxy bags and leather bracelets.. Nothing is made by a chance. Everything is measured, precise and meticulously made.

Let´s first say: this is an NSFW video and includes some nudes (yes, those full frontal too). Ok, it´s not a deep night yet and we didn´t close all the shutters to see it…because we are now in the middle of the (bright) day and this isn´t something to be ashamed of. Nudity or being nude is something spontaneous and shameless; we were all born nude, so no more comments on this, please.

Jonathan Saunders celebrates ten years of his successful brand with this sharp, dark and clever short film directed by Justin Anderson.It´s tale of a bourgeois European family's everyday reality being interrupted by the visit of an enigmatic and naked visitor. Inspired by the painter David Hockney’s “Swimming Pool Series” and Pier Paolo Pasolini film “Teorema”, the film shows the visitor’s impact on each family member, without loosing the view on the colours and pattern of Saunderns trademark knits. 

Desire, guilt or confusion? How will you feel? Now press play and let me know…
