H&M x Isabel Marant

Breaking news!!! H&M's next designer collaboration will be with Isabel Marant!
Isabel Marant, one of our most fave designers at the moment, and H&M will collaborate for a stunning collection which will be in stores this Fall!! H&M could't make us happier! (OK Celine or Prada wouldn't be too bad either ;).

Every chick who knows her fashion adores the style of the French designer which is equal to rock chic, luxe boho and urban.
Althought we're not sure, we expect the Isabel Marant wedge sneaker will be part of the women's collection, as well as the biker jackets with the worn-in look.

Isabel Marant FW '13/'14

According to the statement from H&M there will be clothes and accessories for women, teenagers and: for men! It will be the first men's collection the designer will be creating.

Watch the video!

Isabel Marant said in this statement: 'I am flattered by this collaboration: H&M works with the best designers and this invitation is an exiting honor. I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian: you dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude.
Everything can be mixed following one's own instincts: my take on fashion is all about personality'.

After Viktor & Rolf, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld en Maison Martin Margiela, will be the Isabel Marant for H&M collection in stores on November 14.

My Nepali Tailor Is a Rockstar is not just a slogan but is actually a true story of one of the tailers of Jux Studio. His name is Roshan Rashaili and plays Mahdal, which is a two-headed cylinder shaped drum from Nepal. This local hero works for Studio Jux and is responsible for sewing many garments. In each garment you can find a number on the carelabel, so you can find the tailer who made it. In this way Studio Jux gives their customer transparency of where their products come from. 'Jux' is a German word for fun. And according to Studio Jux, fashion should be fun: not only for consumers, but also for the tailors. 

A few weeks ago, together with Sabrina Spong 'diemetdieafro', I had the opportunity to see new F/W13 collection. We were not only impressed by their designs, but also sustainable production process each garment takes. Sustainability is their first priority. The fabrics that they use are organic cotton, hemp and recycled coke bottles. With all this green development, I am very proud to say 'I am wearing Studio Jux'

Shadowlime @ Show Nikkie

Nikkie Plessen did it - She created her own fashion label NIKKIE
The show took place at The Harbourclub in Amsterdam, were she showed her FW13/14 collection. Everything was very well organized, from drinks to the vogue goody bag - her first show was very professionally organized.

Although the media is falling over the authenticity of the collection, we think she did a good job. The collection was divided into 4 categories: Outerwear, Office, Casual and Party. They also put some models on ice-skates to show their looks skating over the runway, which was a very funny element. We thought that the Outerwear collection was most strong. The colors, rich fabrics and design were all very 'desirable'. The party collection was not really our cup of tea, as selection of fabrics looked a bit cheap. But overall the everything looked very nice and we very much enjoyed the show!

We definitely think you should keep on eye on this new label, because the clothes are very wearable and affordable! We give Nikkie a warm welcome into the fashion industry :)!
