Jef Montes Tormenta Paris Catwalkshow & Presentation

Collection Tormenta is Jef Montes’ first international presentation and Paris debut during the International Art Fair. The collection consists of thirty creations and a material installation. Collection Tormenta is inspired by the maritime industry. Tormenta means Storm in Spanish and the collection exploits Jef’s family heritage with their love for ships. He studied materials that are used in the process to build ships. Materials like nylon, brass, carbon and fibre-glass were used to create technical fabrics. Jef’s grandfather gabriel inspired him to create the dessins for Tormenta. When he was younger he worked on several ships in the south of Spain catching sharks. A few years ago he gave Jef a miniature ship that he handcrafted out of wood. Jef got inspired and that meant the beginning of Tormenta.
Like a ship caught in the storm, Jef designs materials that arise and develop like a storm around the body. Through technical fabrics that take on a new dimension, the essence of the collection is captured in the material installation. Sustainability plays an important role in the p[rocess of Jef’s projects. For Tormenta, several creations from previous projects are further developed and recreated.
Jef Montes is a Dutch designer, whose work balances between the borders of fashion and art.

As fall in Amsterdam has started full force cosy cashmere sweaters and heavy woolen coats (as well as umbrellas!) actually are all we can think of in terms of daywear. But luckily the spring/summer collections gave us something to daydream about. Céline, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent and Dries van Noten wowed with their latest collections. Filled with crisp color palettes, updated trends, new references and fresh styling tips and tricks to look forward to.

If anything SS2018 is going to be exuberant. With a lead role for feathers, fringes and frills. Lots of volume, asymmetry and transparency and at least three crisp new trends we’d like to highlight.

So while you’re still in fashion rehab, sit back, relax and click your way through these galleries. Here we go:

(Biker) shorts
As seen at Saint Laurent, Nina Ricci and Off-White

Shiny, sparkly sequins
