Jan Taminiau Couture Presentation SS2015 Paris

During an imtimate presentation at the Residence of the Dutch Ambassador in Paris Jan Taminiau told his SS2015 couture story. A collection for which the talented designer shook things up a bit. His three models wore wigs (in red, black and blonde) and therefore looked outspoken. Like characters out a Marvel Comic Strip, Jan Taminiau’s source of inspiration for this collection named Marvelous. More than ever before Jan put the focus of his designs on the hips, waist, breasts, buttocks and shoulders, honouring those parts of the female body women are sometimes afraid to reveal. The dresses seemed to give the models an even better, very powerful posture and a touch of super heroin toughness. A split cape added to that effect. Yet no matter how rigid and tough some of the creations appeared, hours and hours of handwork were put into them. Like the case with some embroidered star and feather shaped applications, glass beads and shiny sequins. Feathers made out of unravelled fabric popped up as well, making a strapless evening gown feel classic and an orange cocktail number look unique. Two pairs of pants and a full on glitter bodysuit made their appearance. Other than that Jan only presented his audience with dresses (both cocktail and evening) as “the shape of a dress is one in which his ideas can be released to the fullest”. A warm color palette of shades like orange, copper, nude, red, yellow and mint green worked lovely with the gold colored setting of the Parisian residence. We’re curious to see which power women will end up wearing these designs. Fact is any woman wearing Jan Taminiau will always look like a superwoman. And who wouldn’t want ‘ Jan’ in a star shape embroidery written on her chest?

Fresh faced male models walked the runway at Mevan Kaluarachchi’s show this week. They sported the young Sri Lanka born designer’s perfectly tailored collection, which contained just about every piece a man needs during summer time. Like sand colored shorts, denim shorts and even light blue colored shiny shorts. Like slouchy striped pants and narrow pleated pants. Like (slightly transparent) white Tees and longsleeves. Like a cardigan with a baseball fit and a sportive checked jacket with leather details. Like short leather jackets, denim jumpsuits and shiny hooded jackets. Like duo colored sleeveless tops and white shirts. Like a decent leather bag, a cool pair of sunglasses and some casual sandals, all given the Mevan twist.
