Undercover - SS 2010

Even if the web is overwelmed with the Undercover's Pitti Show/Event pics,
I loved it so much and Dan took such beautiful photos that I am posting anyway, despite it's already been a month since it happened.
The colletions is very interesting, minimal, functional, rational, inspired by the work of german indistrial designer Dieter Ram.
The after show took place up to the hill of the "Boboli wonderland" and was incredibly poetic.

Afshin Feiz

This collection just came straigt to my attention thanx to fb...
power of our net oriented multilevel culture...
This is, for me, his best collection.
Born in Iran, Feiz has been travelling all over the world: America, Asia, Europe...
He studied Literature and I think this has been a big influence on his job because he uses colors and shapes in a totally personal way that suggests me writing:
he applies several methaphors to fashion design.
Afshin's latest collection is graphic but musical, architectural but pictorial and never strict.
Contemporary but withan eye to classic shapes.


This is just how I would love to go out today

Black&White, leather, vinyl, anathomy details, smoke and other subjects I love

Here I want to write about Gemma Slack and Maiden Art, two of the labels that are mostly taking my attention.
Mrs Slack is a very young promise of british fashion landscape.
She has got a very strong arty approach and often translate sculpture and painting into apparel.
I have seen her creations on the celebrated "Not just a label" young talent incubator/eshop and I totally fell looking at her "spine dress" that sent me directly to her homepage...
she has already interned at Gareth Pugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I selected the look I ostly appreciate,
featuring black&white, shouldel structures, digital smoke prints, chain corsets and leather.

The second brand I was mentioning is Maiden Art.
This label is fresh, italian and conceptual: hurraaaaay!!!
Just to proudly show that Italy has got young energy with something strong to say.
Their production includes apparel, accessories and jewelry for women and men.
This FW 2009/2010 collection is called "The Black Vinyls", all declined and inspired by black and white with a lot of metal and leather. That's why I am pairing these two collection that give me a similar deep vibe.
