The new collector item, published by Taschen, is titled “Sir” and contains in total 300, very Testino, man-only photos.

_____________________


If you know Italian, then a word "corda" is more than familiar to you; it means "rope". Rope? Yes. We all know "espadrilles", the well-known summer shoes, made (originally) from a canvas or cotton upper part and a flexible jute-rope sole. Acne´s corda is not so far from that. The sole is espadrilles-inspired and the upper part is open, sandal-type of the shoe, made of beige calf suede. I would say perfect for urban-daily outfits and why not even for daring evening ones.

ECLECTIC


What a show dear Phoebe! Skirts with asymmetrical-unfinished layers, so with the dresses with the incomplete-like backside or also playing with lingerie-like with undone corsets, deconstructed over slip-dresses or the fabulous sweater with belled cuffs over crocheted-lace like wide pants. We can´t go over the majestic outwear pieces. On one side satin-ones with unbuttoned sleeves on the shoulder part, while the super-plain leather ones with fur trims on the other side. What to add more here? We know perfectly the ability of Phoebe, when she creates timeless, season-less, trend-less pieces, focused on practicality, even when maybe doesn´t look that way. The white tennis shoes or practical raw-seamed leather totes are another good example. The best mix, isn´t it? Making desirable, elegant, innovate and contemporary clothes on the highest level. I guess it´s eclecticism´s “fault”.
