Our Thursday morning started off with a breakfast at Ralph Lauren’s. yogurt, eggs, bagels and a stunning fw2019 collection awaited us at his café at the 72nd Street side of his Madison Avenue women’s flagship store. “Ralph’s Coffee” was an intimate, branded setting, such a pleasant way to do a fashion show these days. Not to mention a perf follow up to the fashion house’s 50th anniversary last year. Ralph’s models started their strut on the staircase all the way through the café. They sported sophisticated, classic looks in a palette solely existing of black, white and gold. Their clothes looked like they’d appeal to women of all ages. Don’t we all want a pair of sequined pants and tuxedo jackets, classic V-neck jumpers, see through blouses, little black dresses, pleated pants and asymmetrical party tops in our wardrobe? Not to mention the finale of golden dresses; tea dresses, T-shirt dresses, slip dresses, column gowns. Gold waist belts, chunky earrings and pointy heels topped it all off. Classic elegancy with a modern touch. We like.

Tom Ford Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2019

For fw2019 Tom Ford opted for simplicity. Nothing too outrageous or over the top, but a collection filled with beautifully made of wearable, 90s inspired designs in a palette of pink, brown, red, khaki, black and white. Now they may have been simple (or ‘secure’ as Tom Ford called this “search for security”) when taken in from a Tom Ford point of view, they were luxurious and outspoken nonetheless. Shiny silk oversize pants, velvet tuxedo jackets, (tucked in) turtle necks, blouses and hoodies as well as XL fur coats, extreme fur hats and platform pumps formed the daywear for women. For the men Tom Ford created fitting suits in leather or pinstriped. Gloves, scarves, hats, XL sunnies and long puffer coats to match. The finale of evening gowns came in the shape of long asymmetric column dresses with chunky chains around the model’s necks/chests.

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: It’s a zoo out there

February 8, 2019 by

We’ve just come to the conclusion that half of our wardrobe is filled with leopard printed items ever since that trend completely took over. We might have added a touch of tiger and even a Dalmatian printed piece along the way, but there’s no denying the love for leopard. It has become our new neutral so to say. And thus, we’re moving further in the world of prints, looking for the next big thing. As it turns out that trend isn’t even that different from the animal print trend. In fact, it’s an animal print too. A different one though; these prints don’t feature the animal’s print, but the complete animal as a print. Just look at the farm animal at Dolce & Gabbana, the birds at Fendi, the butterflies at Mary Katrantzou, the fish at Michael Kors and the peacocks at Valentino. All very colorful, vivid and exotic. Animal prints revisited.

Keep fishing! We spotted net bags at Armani, net shoes at Altuzarra and mesh clothing at the likes of Louis Vuitton, Sonia Rykiel, Etro, Ferragamo and JW Anderson. Beach ready or office proof this netting trend blends in with any dresscode perfectly. Worn over tops and dresses it creates that extra special layered effect. And what better way to make your outfit literally breathe. So besides looking on trend it helps to take things lightly next season.

Expect lots of flowers, chains and paisley prints in the mix as seen at Chloé, Loewe and Etro. Fits are loose and airy, the color palette earthy and rusty.

Though dressing up has always been a big part of the streetstyle game the street have been dominated by sportswear influences for season after season now. Hoodies and joggers, caps and trainers; we’ve all never had more street cred than we did over the last few seasons. Yet, it’s time for a subtle shift! Time to start dressing up more. And that’s exactly what the streetstyle stars in the gallery below did. They put on a skirt, tucked in a top, slipped into a pair of heels and picked out a bag to match. Street chic is back, get ready!

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: Utility Mode On

February 4, 2019 by

Overalls, cargo pants, tool belts and utility vests; it’s all about functional fashion these days. Wear your clothes oversized, in earthy tones and covered with a variation of pockets (and even pockets on pockets!). No extra bag(s) needed anymore. Thanks to Virgil Abloh and his concept of ‘accessomorphosis’: the transformation of bags and wallets into clothing. Just make sure you remember what you put in which pocket. Or you’ll have a hard time finding your car keys or American Express card and you’ll end up making things even more complicated instead.

Claes Iversen Couture SS19 “79Au”

Designer Claes Iversen just released his latest couture collection “79Au”. Monday we shot the lookbook for this SS2019 collection, which is all about gold and rings, at our studio. Below Peter talks Claes Iversen and this specific lookbook shoot.

Peter: “I’ve known Claes from back when he was interning at Viktor & Rolf. Since then he’s grown to be an amazing designer of his own. I’ve shot his collections and shows ever since and he was even the first designer to host a catwalk show at our Amsterdam studio. It’s a joy working with Claes. He’s great to be around, so we always have a good time on set. Claes might be Danish, with his rich fabrics and sculptural designs he fits in with our Dutch fashion landscape perfectly. His designs represent couture at its finest. For the lookbook shoot of his 79Au collection we’ve focused on keeping everything around the clothes as clean as possible. Since, with a collection full of gold like this, it’s easy to mess it up by going all too shiny/bling-bling and making the most delicate, elegant designs look like a Versace collection on steroids. We had a long shooting day at the studio this Monday, yet we had a lot of fun creating this lookbook for yet another stunning (golden!) Claes Iversen collection.”
