POSTER GIRL
SERIES 1.1 S+S `18


november 2017
 

Poster Girl is made up of the creative partnership of designers Francesca Capper and Natasha Somerville who met during their studies at Central Saint Martins. Launched in March 2017, Poster Girl has grown rapidly working with retailers including Selfridges and Opening Ceremony with a unique sense of “nostalgia-meets-the-future”. Capper and Somerville’s personal take on the fashion schedule is based on four collections a year on the same theme as a continually building and developing annual collection.

 
POSTER GIRL  SERIES 1.1 (SPRING/SUMMER 2018) Lookbook LE MILE Magazine
 

Poster Girl was launched with Series 1.0 in mid-2016 and the most recent release under Series 1.1 coincides with the Spring/Summer 2018 season. Moving on from the blacn and silver chainmail collection which Poster Girl launched with, Series 1.1 includes clashing tones and reimagines the popular pastel trend under a fresh perspective. A driving force behind the designers’ vision stemmed from Zaha Hadid’s architectural fluidity and obsession with water giving birth to this year’s “liquid metal” chainmail concept. Their grounded ethos of fun aesthetic with serious ethics means all of the piece are expertly crafted in London. The Series 1.1 look-book was shot on location at Zaha Hadid’s Roca Gallery in London as a solid and otherworldly reflection of where the breakthrough label is headed.

Francesca Capper and Natasha Somerville graduated from Womenswear at Central Saint Martin’s in 2015. Between the two designers they have experience working for houses including Christian Dior, Bvlgari, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang, Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano among others, and have taken this wealth of experience and to found Poster Girl.

ROMe as a dream. DROMe as a journey.

DROMe Man SS18 x LE MILE Magazine by Gabriele Rosati
 

DROMe is a young Italian brand and stands as a project uniquely based on leather, rendered as a lively and natural material, yielding to shapes and themes inspired both by biker and sport worlds and by a new concept of this textile, renovating the classic notion of a "leather jacket". The DROMe atmosphere is subtle , inspired by the elegance of the Mod’s of the 1960’s

The style is utterly sophisticated with elaborated details, favoring a rather minimal approach, and with a peculiar care in terms of treatments. DROMe is not a mere product but the research of an individual and recognizable style, emerging from a poetic and passionate vision of the leather.

DROMe, indeed, presents a product that is powerful, unique, urban and rule breaking, but at the same time niche, sophisticated, cool, digital and musical.

*SADAK*


november 2017
 

Inspired by a set of miniatures found at Belgrade’s ethnographic museum, SADAK’s new collection is a celebration of diversity and sartorial contradictions, blending the appeal of 1990s subcultures with the beauty of formal tailoring and timeless sportswear. 

 
SADAK SS18 collection Slave Sauvage x LE MILE Magazine
 

Entitled “Slave Sauvage”, the collection operates a surprising encounter between the dominant and the oppressed, the margins and the mainstream, the subversive and the classic. Slavic and Western-European elements are mixed freely within the line and garments express a desire for cross-cultural encounters, evidenced by the designer’s careful reinterpretation of utility workwear.

This season, tailoring comes to life in a variety of fabrics, from caramel-colored PVC to wool pinstripe, as well as printed cotton and silk. Worn with pleated shorts and mesh long johns, SADAK’s signature jacket is collarless and open in the back, held by belts in matching fabrics. Outerwear is a strong focus, from a reworked plastic blue biker coat to a new trench shape, blending the aesthetics of military shirts with the comfort of traditional Serbian clothing, featuring open sleeves and a generous volume.

Neon tones complement the exclusive print -which is done in blue and green- while beige and nude tones dominate the color palette this time, evoking the neutrality of uniforms as well as Northern African summers, where the desert remains an inspiring landscape. The designer’s longing for natural elements and contrasting textures clashes with the sleek and nihilistic appeal of a PVC wardrobe, including sweatshirts, shorts, overalls and fitted jackets, in shades of blue, tan and black. Brutal and refined at the same time, SADAK’s collection oozes with strength and vitality, underlining structure and ease, while mixing graphic lines with a flou sensibility.

Cons x Civilist


november 2017
 

The Berlin-based skateboard store *Civilist* has established itself as a household name in the global skateboarding community. It serves as a culture hub for art, music, and skateboarding. In 2017, Converse and Civilist celebrate the role Berlin has played in driving global street culture with interpretations of the One Star Pro and Chuck Taylor All Star Pro inspired by the city. 

 
 

The Converse Cons x Civilist pack pays homage to the history, evolution and grit of Berlin using the entire surface of the sneaker to tell its story. Designed for skateboarders, the pack takes its inspiration from two of the most famous landmarks representing Berlin – the TV Tower in the East, and the Radio Tower in the West.

TSOLO MUNKH
Fierce + Feminine


november 2017
 

Tsolmandakh Munkhuu is a very special woman who defied and defeated the sometimes constricting confines of her native Mongolia to follow her creative urge. Thank goodness she did, and thank goodness she was strong, talented, and determined enough to succeed, because one thing is certain: ever since its 2010 foundation, Tsolmandakh Munkhuu’s fashion brand, Tsolo Munkh, has certainly been enriching the fashion world.

 
Tsolo Munkh x LE MILE Magazine
 

The artist (because one look at any one of her creations will prove that she is just that) has made a name for herself also thanks to her ability to take inspiration from traditional Mongolian and Buddhist elements (in a constant celebration of her roots) and western elements alike. Tsolmandakh Munkhuu set up base for her brand in Oulan Bator, but she took her studies in France (at Atelier Chardon Savard) and she knows the world in all its variety of shapes and cultures, a knowledge which shows in her designs. If you are not yet familiar with this impressive woman’s works, her Spring/Summer 18 Women’s collection is a great place to start. Presented at NeC gallery for 5 years now in Le Marais, in Paris, this collection is a striking array.   

There is a great use of leather and fur, as inspired by the Mongolian steppes. Tsolo Munkh’s designs have a feeling of ancestral earthiness to them. The sharp lines, along with the remarkable creasings and foldings, give us the image of a fiercely feminine woman able to face everything with the uttermost grace and elegance. One dress from the collection is enough to make any woman feel empowered. 

Wool also makes an appearance to “fluff up” and enrich leather jackets that promise war to any winter chill that might be blowing your way. 

The leathers are usually enriched with exquisite embroidery in a technique reminiscent of traditional Mongolian leather manufacturing mixed in with the creative flair of a passionate fashion designer. 

Black is the dominant color from one collection to another that, despite its fierceness, makes each piece delicate in its own way.

Tsolmandakh Munkhuu is a very special woman, Tsolo Munkh is a very special brand, and if you aren’t familiar with them yet, we suggest you rectify.

A.F. Vandevorst’s SS18 collection finds its artistic roots in motocross. Per tradition, the brand is heavily influenced by their favourite muse - the nomadic woman ready to experience. This season their muse gracefully embraces the off-road and speed of the motocross grounds.

 
A.F. Vandevorst x LE MILE Selected
 

The bright colours of the dirt track, primary and modernist, have been toned down, softened, creating more refined pieces. Motocross clothing and bike form, with the thin tires and large mudguards, provoked the use of
leather, big letters and roughed up style. The ‘Fireworks’ shoes, recognisable by their enticing glitter, are the ultimate night-time go-to. The nouveau sneaker, with asymmetric details, demands a second look. Boots featuring accentuating lines create flattering forms. To celebrate the first shoe-only collection and the brand’s ultimate muse, a new returning boot is introduced this year: the iconic ‘Nomad boot’. Inspired by LA beaches, where artists paint temporary tattoos on legs and
feet, the elegant form rocks a beautiful henna-like print.

The brand will show their Spring/Summer 2018 couture collection at Paris Haute Couture in January 2018.
