Water by Wang – Evian’s Bottles Got “Dressed” for Fall

www.astairwaytofashion.com
Alexander Wang for Evian Bottle Design

The “thirst” for collaborations brought Alexander Wang and famous Evian together for a new cool project. The bottles of mineral natural water sourced from the French Alps come in two black and white designs featuring Wang’s bar code. 

Mineral water is about everyday consumption but [also] premium dimensions with the iconic glass bottle. That’s something that’s close to Alex’s universe,” said Laurent Houel, Evian’s global brand director. “He’s also about everyday fashion that’s accessible and approachable, but with a very strong design integrity, so we really feel it’s a great match in terms of the spirit between brands.”

We don’t just live with clothes and shoes,” Wang said. “We sit on furniture. We go to restaurants. We drink. We eat. To be able to take our brand and expand into lifestyle and work with partners that have perfected what they do is something I learn so much from and really stimulates me.

Charles James “Beyond Fashion” Exhibition at The Met

www.astairwaytofashion.com
Charles James 1906-1978

Charles James ( 1906 – 1978 ), British born designer, is known as “America’s First Couturier”. The Met is dedicating an exhibition to his great talent and fashion sense – Charles James : Beyond Fashion – open to public the 8 of May. Splendid vintage gowns of the designer will be on display, tribute to his highly structured aesthetic and the mastery of cutting. The visitors will be able to enjoy an exhibition of elegant dresses of an exquisite execution and a complex fashion design. Unfortunately, back in time, Charles James died in complete solitude and penniless due to business fall outs. Don’t miss it, it’s a parade of flawless vintage couture!

Fashion specialists and fashion students never forgot James, but for the general public he is not known. There is no brand, no global presence, so what we can do is reintroduce people and look brilliant doing it because he was so brilliant,” Mr Koda said.

Christopher Kane’s “Paper” Dresses, Tops and Skirts for Fall 2014

Scottish designer Christopher Kane showed an extremely successful collection at London Fashion Week – critics called it “a large catalog of ideas” and even the best in the history of the brand.  Models presented on catwalk dresses, tops and skirts, as if composed of sheets of paper.

The “paper” dresses, tops and skirts are actually made ​​from the finest organza – dozens of layers of fabric, overlapping, creating the most beautiful visual effect . Each layer of fabric is framed by contrasting the outline that emphasises the volume and the layering. The collection includes three black and white dresses with wide and narrow shoulder straps , a pink asymmetrical cut dress with black outlines, a black top of shiny organza and black and white skirt. Each “architectural ” dress is a work of art that reflects a mastery of design of Christopher Kane team.

Marcela Velez and Melissa Losada

Marcela Velez and Melissa Losada are Colombian and the designers of M2Malletier – a brand that thanks to its creativity and high-quality, managed, in just three seasons, to make recognisable their designs, something for which most brands need years and years of exposure. The bags appeared everywhere – worn by celebrities and on the street style of the fashion week – two of the most important things in order to succeed.

The two met in New York while studying at Parsons – Marcela, Design & Management, Mellisa, Fashion Design and that’s how everything started, with a project – today it is a fully established company in which both have their role – Marcela is the business mind and Mellisa is the creative one and takes care of the public relations.

Lanvin celebrates its 125th birthday

Lanvin Celebrates Its 125th Birthday

Lanvin prepares to celebrate its 125th birthday. In 1889, Jeanne Lanvin founded her Fashion House, on the corner of rue Boissy d’Anglas and rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. It was the success of her hat designs that led her to launch her own business –  “Lanvin (Mademoiselle Jeanne) Modes” – and to design the hats of the most fashionable Parisiennes at the time.

Lanvin made such beautiful clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac that they began to attract the attention of a number of wealthy people who requested copies for their own children. Soon, Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, and some of the most famous names in Europe were included in the clientele of her new boutique on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris. 20 years after she becomes member of France’s Chambre Syndicale de la Couture and markes her formal status as couturière.

Today, to celebrate the history of the house, Alber Elaz, the designer of the house since 2001, has started to create certain pieces inspired by the impressive archive of Lanvin. Even the logo will be transformed, showing Jeanne Lanvin and her child holding hands. Happy Birthday Lanvin!!!!

Inside Giambattista Valli's Book

Giambattista Valli’s Book from Rizzoli

“To make clothes with dreams behind them is what couture is about. But, for me, it is about moments with these real women. These incredible women are part of my story – inspiring me, encouraging me, listening to me – they are the people who experiment with me; who wear my clothes. They are part of the process.” Giambattista says. His book, published by Rizzoli, holds together nearly 400 pages  even if he started his signature label only in 2005 and became a couturier two years ago.

Take a look inside the beautiful book here. For anyone who wants to buy it, the book can be found on  rizzoli.com or London’s Dover Street Market and costs 100 dollars.
