OUR REVIEW OF THE FFF SHOW

With a room crowded with all sorts of fashionistas from all over the world, the show seemed like a success. You could really feel the passion for fashion while entering the room based on the atmosphere.
People were talking in every corner about the designers, and the upcoming show. Then the show started, and the room went silent. 
The music made the collections come alive, and drew attention to the audience. The designers seemed satisfied with the shows, and happily talked about it afterwards. 
Over all it was a fantastic show with a group of very talented designers.

PARIS FASHION WEEK AW17

JACQUEMUS
Simon Porte Jacquemus was born January 16th, 1990 in Salon de Provence. He is the French designer of the company and brand Jaqcemus.

The love of a gypsy seems to be the headline of jacquemus latest show in paris which was held in a big warehouse. The catwalk went from corner to corner across the big warehouse with seatings along the podium.  

The collection was feminin and the silhouettes where symmetric with inspiration from several decades such as the 20s/30s and 50s. With exaggerated proportions. Inspiration taken from the 50s in shape of broad shoulders and small waits and inspiration from the 20s in form of dropped waits. Mainly the colour pop came from the bags - the bags where rectangular with half circles as handles from which a chain hung creating the illusion of a full circle. The overall feeling of the pieces, venue and music was dark with a red thread through all aspects.

Went to Rathlous School in Odder – graduated in 2000. Then studied at Teko and graduated in 2009 He’s a former creative thinker at 30KM Studio (2009-2011) and creative director at VOID Showroom (2012-2014) In January 2011 he started his own brand Leon Louis. As a 2-year old he started drawing and immediately fell in love with art and construction. He’s known for his very special materials, details and old fashion approach. His father had his first career within men’s fashion in the 70´s and 80´s. Leon inherited a lot off his wardrobe and became especially interested in 1880´s fashion. He loved the functionality and quality in the fabrics- all of this kickstarted his approach to the fashion world. SS17 is full of raw, special made materials as leather and fine cotton. The silhouettes are simple and functional with a lot of little details that you will only find if you look very closely. Everything from the stitching to the buttons are thought thoroughly through, and Leon Louis for sure doesn’t compromise.

ANNREALAGE AW16 // PARIS FASHION WEEK

Anrealage AW16 If you had to sum up the Anrealage AW16 show in one word, it would have to be “grey”. The name of the collection was “Noise”, which the music certainly reinforced. It was not as much music as it was noise, but it felt somewhat fitting to the collection of exclusively grey, white and black clothes. It all looked very alike, nothing in particular stood out. This might have been on purpose, invoking a sense of TV static, but it did not make for an interesting show. The scene was set up with a large mesh cube in the middle, reminiscent of a kind of futuristic boxing ring, in which the models walked in a particular pattern, giving a good look of the clothes from all angles, in motion and still, for all guests of the show. It did drag out a bit, and the choreography was not always as tight as it could have been, but it was a novel and interesting way of showing of the clothes. The clothes themselves were unfortunately not very interesting. None of the grey suits and grey dresses stood out, and were it not for the pictures we took, I would have a hard time describing any outfit. It was like a big, grey mass of fabric.








ANNE SOFIE MADSEN AW16 // PARIS FASHION WEEK

Anne Sofie Madsen AW16 Located in an underground parking garage, the AW16 show was in one of the more unconventional locations of the season. The “scene” spanned 3 floors, and the very mundane scenery stood in stark contrast to the feminine and extravagant clothes. The clothes got much of their femininity and extravagance from the shapes and silhouettes, as brown was the main colour used. As in previous seasons, the collection had a clear deconstructive lean, with classic pieces being torn apart and put back together again in ways that gave them a flowey look. This was especially apparent in the long trenchcoat with the fur collar. The way the model walked only exaggerated the look, and was the most memorable outfit of the show.
