Maison Mihara Yasuhiro
*Seducing the Eye at Maison Mihara Yasuhiro


june 018

written MALCOLM THOMAS

Mihara Yasuhiro began as a shoe designer. An ambitious design student with big ideas. Twenty years later, in a cobblestone garage at 22 rue de Lübeck in Paris he’s still thinking big. Celebrating two decades of cerebral foreplay, the designer curled some pages from his own book. “Proto-Type II” it was dubbed, is a re-constructing of an inquisitive spirit, the program stated. A spirit which has undoubtedly earned him veteran status in an industry of high turnover.

How can you turn an otherwise everyday cardigan into a fashion statement? Design it backwards. Sweats not acceptable? Attach an additional pant to it. Want to conquer the denim on denim look? Wear as much denim as you can possibly strap to your back. For the laymen, these concepts can be quite provocative. Why worry about thinking outside the box, when you can re-design it, Yasuhiro says. 

While many of the pieces are not what most would deem “wearable” the very notion of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary is enough to satisfy my palette. The “is fashion art?” debate has been going on forever. And sure, Mihara Yasuhiro certainly won’t be hanging in the Louvre, but when fashion can make you think, when it can leave you scratching your head in bewilderment at how the fuck a garment can be worn, let alone sewn to seduce the eye of the beholder, the question answers itself. Or more simply put, a model sported a blouson with words on the back, it read

“This is Tomorrow”.

LI-NING
*Takes Paris


june 018

written MALCOLM THOMAS

It was part of China Day when I saw it in New York. A series of collections meant to introduce trendy sportswear brands from the East to the North American market. And considering the influx of Chinese capital particularly in the luxury market it was no wonder even then that the space was packed. So naturally, with the success in New York this season Li-Ning came to Paris.

 

 
LINING_Runway_Model_Paris-Fashion-Week-2018-Spring-Summer-2019-Le-Mile-Magazine-2.jpg
 

Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts I couldn’t make this show. (Puts foot in mouth). But from the looks of it, the namesake of legendary Chinese Olympic gymnast cast quite the spell on the City of Light. Somewhere between the intersection of future and heritage lay a collection infused with a deep sense of Chinese pride and off-kilter apparel.

Using a color palette of olive, orchid, nuclear green, and national colors, cardinal red and bright yellow, Dolman-sleeved track tops and patchwork-drop shoulder jackets, Li-Ning brought streetwear to modernity.

Cmmn Swdn vs. Fast Fashion
*s+s019 @Paris Fashion Week


june 018

written MALCOLM THOMAS

It’s a jumble out there,” read the program. As I stood in front of a literal bail of discarded clothing, a “Cmmn Swdn” placard placed in the center as if to hold it all. If only bold statements in leather, tulle, and mesh could solve the crisis of overproduction. Try to imagine a world sans resort, pre-fall and fast fashion. In a word, “impossible”. While the Scandinavian house by way of London, is surely not in the business of environmental activism, their take on the subject matter was impressive, if not coolly creative. 

 
CMMN_SWDN_SS-2019-LE-MILE-Magazine_3.jpg
 

There were sheer tops fused with unlikely textures like wool and denim, deconstructed shoes recycled from their AW18 collection in collaboration with shoe artisan, Helen Kirkum, a few practical pieces too, like plaid leather mac coats, and pinstripe suiting, worn with the ever-popular dad sneaker. A personal favorite was the button-ups with sleeves used practically as decoration. A clever take on art vs. commerce. I mean some men, doactually still do that 9 to 5 thing. Emphasis on some.

Not to fret, if you like lounging round' the streets of trendy nightclubs your parents never knew they wanted to get into, there are pieces for you, if you’re a slave to the office but have the freedom to spice up that work wardrobe, there are many pieces for you, and if you’re just a ridiculously good-looking model type, there’s are (many) pieces for you.

Young. Political. Cohesive. Cool. It’s all for you.

CHALAYAN
*pendulum


june 018

Looking at what happiness means in different regions of the world, the Chalayan Women’s Collection evolves in a spirit of re-enacting and abstractly depicting various historical world events. Cultural tendencies are applied as certain actions inspired by these events and placed onto ordinary clothes.

 

 
SS19_Chalayan-Resort19-Le-Mile-Magazine_1.jpg
 

According to this process, fabrics and prints are developed to portray pivotal events and differences in attitude on the respective continents. 

In the Centre of the World, expansionism in the Roman era is represented by The Abduction of Sabine Women, dating to around 752 BC in Roman Italy. In this light, jackets as seen in a modern wardrobe are displaced on the body to simulate an attempted abduction. 

Not so different from current world events, this Roman disaster is further represented by the volumes, which are picked up in the garments themselves. In another instance, built-in straps prevent garments from being pulled away any farther. These details then evolve into bag-like pockets integrated into the garment to empower the wearer, and to emphasize the ‘irremovability’ of what is worn. 

The East is represented by a propensity for preservation and protection, with pieces wrapped and guarded by tulle and cotton silk. The South is symbolized by hedonism and chaos. The North is shown as a grid system in conjunction with nature. The West is represented by the power of individuality, upon which the whole collection is stylistically built. 

Textiles include lightweight tailoring fabrics, printed textures, jacquard with transparent windows, lightweight papery outerwear materials, wool cotton mix tailoring fabrics, white and black denim and lightweight Japanese Jerseys. 

Colours are classic neutrals with bright pop colours mixed in

With his latest autumn+winter 018 collection, Joshua Millard offers a fresh perspective to his signature tribute to rural workwear. 

 
Portrait-Joshua-Millard-Le-Mile-Magazine.jpg
 

Now in his fifth season, the luxury, ready-to-wear designer continues to draw inspiration from his childhood memories of farming in Dorset and specifically, the rolling chalk hills of Southern England known as the Downlands.

Agricultural references seep into this texture-rich collection and manifest as English heritage reimagined and made relevant for today’s luxury market. Patchwork farming shirts, tailored tweed suiting and shearling outerwear add to the nostalgic theme of the collection while sheepskin and tweed girth belts and field hats, which were once worn low at the back to protect from the sun, provide traditional references. A tonal palate with accents of Cyan blue, Iris purple and Ivy greens compliment the collection. Dramatically oversized Alpaca knitted scarfs contrast with the minimal clean finishings of covered buttons, eyelets and raw edged fringing.

The contrast fit of tailored and relaxed cuts highlight Millard’s craftsmanship and amplifies his attention to outerwear, suiting and shirting.

VENCZEL
Collection 02  


june 2018
 

Collection 02 affixes acute lines to sensual forms; blurring the distinction between form and function through discriminating workmanship and attention to detail. By eschewing the trends of an ever-accelerating culture, the label achieves a sublime luxuriousness in its calculated simplictiy.

LE-MILE-Magazine-collection-lookbook-02-venczel-fw18.jpg

Every articulation of the label relays this to the wearer; from the techniques behind the Saddlery, to the humanity of the pieces when worn. The feel of the handbags and weight of the jewelry immediately convey that the pieces chase the particular distinction of becoming a future generation’s heirloom.


After presenting the first collection in Paris in September 017 Venczel now coutns some of the world’s most influential stores as stockists; including Totokaelo, lncc and Rare market. Collection 02 features handbags and accessories in vegetable tanned, full grain bovine leather. Designed in Denmark and made in Italy, the collection will be available in selected stores next month.

THE NEW ORIGINALS
Think Outside The Box  


june 2018
 

The New Originals presents ‘Think Outside The Box’, a one-minute manifest film about creativity and diversity, directed by Rutger van Leeuwen . The 60-second movie is produced by production company Bruut Amsterdam. 

Amsterdam is renowned for being one of the creative capitals where boundaries blur and diversity is celebrated. This is the city where The New Originals was born, a brand initiated for creatives with similar mindsets.

The New Originals creates performance clothing for creatives. The nine dots in The New Originals logo symbolize ‘The Box’, and refer to a puzzle where the is solution is outside the box. Think Outside The Box aims to inspire (young) creatives to think greater. 

Through visual storytelling, young and upcoming director Rutger van Leeuwen portrays his take on the subject. Within 60 seconds, Rutger takes you on a visual exciting journey that presents think outside the box and the consequences once the daily routine and ordinary thought processes are broken.

The clip contains three essential parts, starting with a black box drifting through the air. As Rutger explains: “The box is a metaphor for our common thinking. It shows our standard thoughts, which are often afraid to go beyond the ordinary.” The video, shot on all different kind of video formats, quickly builds up to the climax, emphasizing the positive effects of deviant thinking. “The personages reach euphoric moments once they think outside the box. It is all about the sense of joy and happiness, which is released once you break through standard routines,” says Rutger. 

 

Bruut Amsterdam is a full-service production agency focused on engaging online video and film. Bruut Amsterdam’s clients are brands targeting a connected audience: millennials who don’t watch traditional television and who don’t like old school ads.

Freya Dalsjø has been working with aspects of sustainability throughout all seasons. With focus on local production, durable design and respect for resources, she has naturally incorporated sustainability.

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-Freya-Dalsjø-x-Lindsey-Wixson_1.jpg
 

Freya and Lindsey are inspired of each other and have previously worked together for several seasons when Lindsey worked as a model. Lindsey kept returning to the small Danish avantgarde brand, partly because of the design, partly due to the special culture and spirit that characterizes the team behind Freya Dalsjø. When Lindsey decided to quit modelling to focus on making sustainable products it felt natural for them to work on a project together.

The materials for the collection are pure natural materials, silk and cotton. The newly purchased materials are GOTS certified. In addition, cotton and silk materials from previous collections are included. Colors and cuts are classic given that the clothes should not only last one season.


The limited-edition resort 2018 collection is produced in Denmark.

London based clothing label Band of Outsiders founded in Los Angeles has grown from a tiny operation designing men’s shirts and ties to now producing full men’s line.

A favourite among A-List celebrities and influencers such as: Chadwick Boseman, Dave Franco, and Fabian Lück more. Americana-inspired brand provides ‘classics with a twist’
generating a cult following for their impeccably cut trousers and unique prints.

The brand is now stocked at iconic stockists worldwide such as: Le Bon Marche in Paris, Fred Segal in LA and KaDeWe in Berlin.

For s+s 018 the brand have continued their nonchalant tailoring but reworking the brand’s new cropped take on classic staples for this collection. Key inspirations in the collections are workwear, maritime and the films of Jacques Tati.

The collection brings together a complete wardrobe, playfully embracing this season’s themes, with rough cotton twills, iconic Breton stripes and Tati’s ‘droll’ attitude. Details include triple stitched seams and slanted patch pockets. Naval prints feature heavily, from ‘the wave’ to the ‘killer shark’ and the ‘smelly cat’.

Ship-life concept pieces, such as lifejackets and parkas, are redesigned for every day wear. This season Band of Outsiders are delighted to work with Woolmark's newest innovation ‘Lightweight Denim Wool’, that further accentuates the collection’s workwear feel in texture and wearability.

may 018

Composed of actual blazers and trousers, the AW/18 shoe collection truly embodies tailoring materials and forms. Blazer patterns are highly recognisable in the sleeves boots where the original shoulder now hides the knee.

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-A.F.Vandevorst-AutumnWinter-2018-Shoe-Campaign_16.jpg
 

Trousers patterns can be found in motor and army trousers high boots and lined dinner trousers boots. Other ‘sleeve’ boots are made from Japanese Sukajan jackets, with unique embroidered patches.

The collection’s sneaker further explores the theme of dissection - consciously cut up and re-ensembled. And per A.F.Vandevorst tradition, the marriage of opposites returns in multiple pairings, such as the delicately woven jacquard boot with its masculine shape and the fragile semi-naked heel with its solid frame.

LIP stands for Live in the Present: A philosophy at the core of all existence, one we know and feel. Merging the now with art and design, a constant reminder to experience every moment as if it is your last.

Constructed with an edge, yet rooted in subtlety. LIP design for those who are inspired by existence, “Being present-minded takes away some of that self-evaluation and getting lost in your mind—and in the mind is where we make the evaluations that beat us up [...] When people are mindful, they’re more likely to experience themselves as part of humanity, as part of a greater universe.

LIP stands for contemporary sneakers dressed in premium Italian leather. The clean lines and neutral colors promise wearing an extra touch of luxury and comfort with each step you take.

Burberry reveals the third portfolio in a series of images by Adwoa Aboah and Juergen Teller. To date, Adwoa has been photographed in London, where she was born, and in New York, where she currently lives, capturing candid moments with her family and friends. The third chapter, shot in Ghana, marks the continuation of this journey and celebrates Adwoa’s West African heritage. Adwoa art-directed the shoot and cast her friend British model Sonny Hall to feature alongside her in the campaign, shot on location around her family home in Accra, Ghana.

I tried very hard not to be too emotional about this trip, but it’s so special for everyone to see where the story started. To be in Ghana means coming home. I’ve been able to bring close friends of mine here, and my grandma and my family have had a taste of what the other part of my life is like’, says Adwoa Aboah. 

The images introduce Burberry’s Autumn Winter 2018 Pre-Collection featuring layered silhouettes, a vibrant
collision of prints, graffiti scribbles, checks and colours across knitwear, coats, suits and accessories.
Also featured are new styles of The Belt Bag introduced in canvas, new colours and a smaller size. Medium and
small-sized bags can now be personalised with a variety of interchangeable belts in six new colors. 

Accompanying the campaign is a set of intimate images of Adwoa with her Ghanaian relatives including her grandmother Gladys Aboah, great-auntie Mary Asare, cousin Kensemaa Aboah and her auntie Tina (Ernestina Aboah), who also designed one-off outfits made from the Burberry Vintage check especially for this occasion.

MARVAIS
moved by passion


may 018

Marvais is founded by the two best friends Marie Libeert and Valérie Vanermen, who left their jobs to devote themselves to their passion. After, respectively, a career as brand manager and interior designer, Marie and Valerie decided it was time for them to start their own project. Launching their very own handbag label MARVAIS, resulting from a lack of timeless models with a surprising nod.  

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-MARVAIS_spring-summer-2018-collection-2.jpg
 

Elegant and discreet with a surprising yet subtle touch. This is how one could describe the Marvais style. At Marvais, everything originates from the fabric and then evolves into a timeless cut with an original touch. With this first collection, the designer duo wishes to offer timeless bags made of high quality leather that embellishes with age. The starting point for this first collection is unworked, natural leather, tanned and coloured to suit each individual design.

After one year and half of research, Marie and Valerie arrived at a renowned tannery working for famous houses like Louis Vuitton and Delvaux. The collection was built around a top-quality vegetable tanned calfskin leather, which gets an original patina over time. Smooth, high-quality calfskin leather is subjected to a 100% vegetable process without chromium. The leather is then dyed in a colour developed by Marvais. This process takes six weeks, until the leather is finished and ready to be assembled into a bag. Each piece is then manufactured by hand in a renowned atelier in Tunisia. The bag interiors comprise a suede finish in contrasting colour.

Marie and Valerie conceive their creations hand-in-hand, without following current trends. They need little words to understand each other. Their designs start from a visceral feeling. Each design grows organically, and each bag is a decision made by mutual agreement. The collection and the brand strives for timeless models with a surprising yet modest touch. No unnecessary fringes, opaque details or prominent logo but a sophisticated collection that can fit with any wardrobe.

COS, the London-based fashion brand, is pleased to announce that it will present Soma, a capsule collection of menswear essentials in the form of choreographed art at the 94th edition of Pitti Uomo this June.

Known for its modern and functional garments inspired by the worlds of art and design, the COS x Pitti Uomo event will take shape by way of a choreographed performance conceived by British choreographer Wayne McGregor, in celebration of the capsule collection’s form and function. ‘For COS, Pitti Uomo celebrates creativity, craftsmanship and forward-thinking menswear. It is an honour to present Soma in Florence and we are equally excited to be able to share the work with a wider audience internationally online’, stated Karin Gustafsson, COS Creative Director. 

Soma will encapsulate the core COS aesthetic and values, using traditional methods and new techniques to form an understated collection that celebrates timeless everyday pieces. Christophe Copin, newly appointed COS Head of Menswear explained, ‘Soma really explores what essential menswear means for us at COS and every detail has been designed with the movement of the wearer in mind.  

We are delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with Wayne McGregor and his company of dancers to bring the directional movement and fluidity of the menswear collection and its inspirations to life’. 

Wayne McGregor will put the collection into movement by focusing on the routine subtle gestures associated with menswear. ‘Playfully exploring the COS collection with a mindfulness and fresh awareness of the wearer, we will create a specifically commissioned work by subverting these everyday gestures alongside the designs. We will appropriate everyday movement and transform it into new fictions, as Company Wayne McGregor dancers inhabit the COS collection infused by their own individual physical signatures’, McGregor explained. ‘We are happy that COS, an icon of style and model of high quality accessibility, has chosen Pitti Uomo 94 for the launching of its new men’s project’, declares Raffaello Napoleone, Pitti Immagine CEO. ‘Florence has once again demonstrated itself to be the ideal stage for international events of great impact’. 

The performance will be livestreamed on cosstores.com. Following which, the collection will be available to buy in the COS Florence store at Via della Spada, 1 and online internationally on all COS ecommerce sites in Europe, USA and South Korea. COS has an established legacy of artistic collaborations, but Soma marks its first foray into dance or choreographed art.

Craftsmanship is at the heart of the new luxury accessories brand, Max V. Koenig, designs leather goods for life-long companionship and to act more as wearable pieces of art than accessory.

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-danse-lente-spring-summer-2018-6.jpg
 

The design is inspired by minimalistic shapes, which are reworked to their utmost essence, giving the aesthetics of the collection subtle clarity. The s+s 018 collection is inspired by his childhood memories of the French Riviera where he was  aised.

The colours of the collection have been carefully selected and are reminiscent of the Mediterranean, while leathers are of butter soft, full grain leather and nubuck which is hand sculpted by Max and produced by skilled artisans in a 160 year old atelier. Every object is approached as a 3-dimensional item, with the desire to create an interplay of form, textures and function.

The carefully selected leathers, their grains, subtle and sensual touch, and dense colours complete the unique personality of each bag and accessory. The quality of each piece is being enhanced by a strong attention to detail and the beautifully finished stitching.

COS
A+W 018 


april 018

The COS Autumn+Winter 018 season takes inspiration from two pronounced themes inspired by interdisciplinary research: real or imagined nature and processes which refine the raw. The result is a collection of classic wardrobe pieces with altered proportions and innovative materials that celebrate hybrid, sculptural forms.

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-COS-fall-autumn-winter-collection-lookbook-6.jpg
 

Exploring the juxtaposition of the metropolitan and the natural environment acted as a starting point for the design process and translates into the collection through protective and textured garments, bringing the outdoors to the urban. Modular menswear pieces, reminiscent of technical, performance clothing sit alongside elongated women’s gloves, offering a modern take on protection from the elements. 

Framed by a colour palette that reflects the contrasting themes, the season is made up of nature-inspired tones of green and brown, punctuated with sulphur and muted lilac alongside colder, industrial hues of grey, off-white and petrol. 

The collection introduces new silhouettes – in womenswear a knitted dress in sea moss green features organic ribs, exaggerating the ergonomic shape of the elbows, whilst a felted wool pea coat in sulphur melange, paired with trousers and a technical shirt, offers a fresh take on proportions. Hems and waistbands have been redefined as they go from high to low, characterised in some garments by a clearly defined waist, a nod to the silhouette produced by an apron. 

Imperfection and rawness is celebrated and refined throughout – across menswear the use of contrasting materials and shapes is a defining theme. A lightly padded thermoreactive jacket in titanium grey epitomises the use of innovative fabrics, whilst a layered composition featuring elongated sleeveless knitwear paired with a textured shirt and wide leg jersey trousers, typifies the bold and unexpected use of form in the collection. The garments are complemented by a range of hybrid accessories; a heel with a distinctive track sole and a reimagined Wellington boot, both in a high shine leather, for women, and square-toe leather zip boots for men. Key functional pieces include a cube-shaped collapsible leather bag, oversized shopper and felted wool backpack, all in taupe. Jewellery is epitomised by corrugated sterling silver earrings.

Each year catwalks all over Europe are flooded with models as people from all over the globe watch attentively taking in the upcoming season’s trends.  

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-Fashion-Dogs-Spring-Summer-2018-Collections_Vivienne-Westwood-spring-summer-2018.jpg
 

 Fashion experts including Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar have listed trends for spring and summer 2018 to include sheer, pastel colours, plastic and fringe. But as Harper’s Bazaar points out, the over-riding trend amongst designer heavyweights is to stick to what you know, further exemplified by the return of Burberry’s iconic plaid in this year’s runway shows. 

This dedication to the tried and true does not imply a sense of playing it safe or dullness but a means of providing timelessness to design. With the impact of Fashion Revolution Week consumers are demanding better quality for their money and one aspect of that is timeless designs that won’t go out of style. 

While catwalks and wardrobes will continue to be an array of exploration into the world of colour, form and texture designers will continue to design work that encompasses and expresses their philosophies. Each new piece being above all, a true representation of each designer’s fashion identity.

Danse Lente, the London-based women's accessories label. Specialising in handbags and leather goods, each piece is designed with a purpose in mind, to cater to the rigors of life without sacrificing style.

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-danse-lente-spring-summer-2018-6.jpg
 

Danse Lente - derived from the French for 'slow dance' - has adopted a playful, curious slant to cater to a large contingent of women, drawing inspiration from contemporary aesthetics and modern architecture.
 
For SS18, the brand has focused upon striking silhouettes and sculptural design to reshape modern expectations of a daily accessory. Think gymnastics - clean lines of vaults, rings and pommel horses that place natural curves against a backdrop of strong edges and robust hardware. 
What's more, the line references the bodily lines of an actual gymnast to add a further sense of fluidity to the collection.

Delving deeper into the sensually of gym culture, Wan Hung debuts his Autumn Winter 2018/19 collection during Shanghai Fashion Week. Taking “Mister Hung”, the office worker meets gym-enthusiast and elevating this to the next chapter. Using intricate performance fabric and smart pattern cutting to create a full range wardrobe that can fit many occasions for a businessman’s lifestyle. Referencing the cult classic film, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ Wan captures each stage of growing up, with a developed and progressive product range for the journey of man. With this is mind, Greek philosopher, Epicurus divulges the ‘happiness checklist’ which resonates with Wan Hung during the design process. This includes a mindful simplicity of survival elements from friends, freedom, thought, food, shelter and clothing.

 
LE-Mile-Magazine-Wan-Hung-AW-2018-1.jpg
 

Taking this inspiration, a stage further, Wan Hung adds sports to his own personal happiness checklist, with the overwhelming importance this factor have in a culture-less modern day society. A dreamless life is a dull one, unable to strive towards anything greater or looking towards the future in a positive perspective. With playful designs, Wan Hung allows the wearer to escape the sometimes challenging reality. Wan Hung has partnered Mr. Company for this season, on formal leatherwear to elevate the sophistication of the collection. Unicare have also collaborated with Wan Hung this season, adding a pop of colour seen in the leisurewear footwear range on the runway, both helping bring the complex lifestyle vision together.

Wan Hung was founded in 2014 following designer Wan Hung Cheung’s graduation from Central St Martins, won the prize of Hand & Lock Award (embroidery fashion competition), and experience working with brands including Tom Ford, John Rocha, Simone Rocha and Bernhard Willhelm. Clean-cut tailoring and classic silhouettes, reinvented through textile and print innovation and contemporary flourishes and detailing are at the heart of the Wan Hung brand, speaking to a sophisticated modern urban customer. Wan Hung Cheung, born and raise in Hainan – often described as the Hawaii of China for its year-round holiday weather, coconut palms, gold-sand beaches and inland rainforests. The juxtaposition of Hainan’s natural beauty with the present day urban experience underlies the Wan Hung brand, bringing a piece a paradise into the luxury menswear wardrobe of today.

A+W018 


written Jessica Bumpus

MARCH 018

The Eighties via old-school films Blade Runner and Tron; computer games and arcades, the buzz of pinball machines, their primary-bright graphics; the allure of the power suit, the even greater allure of its neon-bold colours; and that perfect kind of awkward style: in a collection that is nostalgic to the era, Roberta Einer rekindles the best bits of the Eighties to create her own updated take, one that comes imbued with a renewed glamour for autumn+winter 018.

 
le-mile-magazine-ROBERTA_EINER_AW18_06.jpg
 

The maximalist luxury ready-to-wear designer finds her inspiration in the life of the woman she saw as coming through at the time, stepping into her life for 24 hours and traversing her wardrobe: from from a puffer jacket to go and grab the milk in, to bright shiny Swarovski crystals and sequins – always a Roberta Einer favourite - to easy pyjama styles, pinstripes, power dressing and party dresses. Chunky knits of thick yarn make for mum-and-dad sweaters with a naïve charm; while hoodies, T-shirts and bombers feature retro graphics taken from her own family photo album of the time: Einer’s mother and father posing in holiday snaps make for sweet motifs which, personal to the designer, also possess a relatable memory-lane quality. There also come her recurring signatures, the bomber jacket – now boasting computer-graphic ornamentation for patchwork detail – and sequins. Here rendered in flashy flourishes for floral clusters on pinstripe dresses that make for a throwback to the office-wear trope of the time.

Three standout silhouettes underpin the season: Roberta Einer takes on the power suit with shapely skirts and new ostentation; draped party dresses bunch and gather at the hip and come in sassy-shimmery shades; and there are asymmetric flared and textured dresses, their cable knit running out across the body at different directions in a flattering contour. Colours throughout are high-shine, bold and bright, Eighties-centric with Bridget Riley monochrome to be found too.

This is the third season that Einer has collaborated with Swarovski to show off her textile ingenuity in 3D floral cutout pieces and the iridescent sew-on crystals used in dégradé fashion on oversized blazers. Her team up with Vans shoes, too, continues for cool and collectible sneakers; while autumn/winter 2018 also marks the launch of a brand-new collaboration with jewellery brand URIBE. A mix of pretty-but-awkward ear cuffs, earrings and chokers that can be stacked up the way you want with different floral charm and Swarovski crystal combinations.

Luxury Womenswear designer Roberta Einer moved from her hometown of Tallinn, Estonia to London to study on the prestigious fashion courses at Central Saint Martins and the University of Westminster. During her studies she completed internships with Mary Katrantzou and Alexander McQueen, before moving to Paris upon graduation to assist at Balmain for a year where she continued to develop her craft.

Establishing her label upon her return to London, the Roberta Einer brand is now in its sixth season creating experimental, luxury womenswear which focuses on textiles and working with traditional couture techniques. Playful embellishments and hand-embroidery decorate specially sourced fabrics to create her daring more-is-more, feminine aesthetic.

Named as One to Watch by NEWGEN in December 2015, in April 2016 Roberta Einer was selected as a winner of Saks’ inaugural Emerging Designer Showcase competition. Her innovative designs have been featured in the likes of American Vogue, Teen Vogue, Dazed & Confused, HUNGER and i-D Magazine.

APHID
*Rituals 018*



MARCH 018

A musing on the concept of ritual, the Aphid A+W018-019 collection explores the notion of formal dressing and dressing for ceremony, the traditions for men & women, nostalgia and the definition of "dressing up" in a contemporary setting. Having researched the ceremonial dress codes of Asian cultures, especially the hakama trousers of traditional Japanese cultural events, the concept of layering became a key focus for the new collection. On-going Aphid signatures, meshed with the composition and deconstruction of the classic suit, inform a shifting silhouette of pieces that can be worn together or styled independent of the whole.

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-Aphid-Rituals-Fall-Winter-2018-2019-BRAXTON-DRESS-STRIPE.jpg
 

A collage of print and surface texture born of the intertwining and hybrid fusion of the common pinstripe and the ritually raked ridges of a zen garden. Integrated a duality into the collection: embracing both the somber reflectiveness of a monochrome palette with the vivid and energising shades associated with celebratory festivals and festive dress. Infusions of saturated and duo-chromatic brights - refreshing, invigorating and bringing a new perspective to the signature Aphid canvas of darkened tones.

Aphid is a British designer brand helmed by Bernadette Bull and Carl Starling, launching in 2016. Aphid is rooted in the natural world - named after strictly female insect colonies, who reproduce perfect replicas of themselves without the need for males, Aphid create clothes that represent strength, power and confidence via beautifully sculpted, strong silhouettes. Using unexpected fabrics and the use of specially developed techniques. With this in mind and as a starting point for the brand, they wanted to create clothes that embody this persona, to be worn with confidence yet versatile enough to be worn anywhere. Aphid is founded on the premise of exploring form and framing the contrast between an intriguing penchant for darkness and a person's individual light.

*TMALL hits major collaboration with CFDA NYFW China Day* 


written Jessah Amarante

march 018

As a 5 year joint partnership among Alibaba's Tmall, a luxury e-commerce company, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and Suntchi, China's leading fashion company, China Day aimed to boost worldwide recognition of Chinese design, and ultimately, promote global opportunities for the brands debuting this season. NYFW: Men’s China Day was officially part of the menswear schedule this season, next season it will switch to women’s as they take center stage.

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-NYFW-China-Day_2.jpg
 

 Li Ning, Peacebird, Chen Peng and CLOT by Edison Chen & Kevin Poon were the designers amongst this season debuting at the Skylight Modern. Following the shows, the collections are available to shop on Alibaba’s millions active users on a see-now-buy-now basis by Tmall, and the organizers expect that the glamorizing of NYFW will further interest the brand's reputations not only back in China but globally. 

Li-Ning an already established label that launched in 1989, his legacy started as an Olympic gymnast. His sportswear brand that featured track pants, dad sneakers, and hoodies emblazoned with Chinese characters and throwback images of its eponymous founder in his days as an Olympic gymnast. His runway theme was “past, future, man, and nature.” The brand had some similarities upon other designers in the market, in the footwear area as Li-Ning is known for, the sock shoe as seen in Balenciaga Triple S as well the chunky dad shoe as seen in Yeezy wave runners. The sporty ensemble included blocked colors in some of the designs, especially a bright red that really popped.

Peacebird a super young and fresh designer just 20 years old with thousands of stores across the country and billions in annual revenue, however, he is unknown to abroad shoppers. On the runway was presented an homage to the 80's-90's pop culture and bringing the Coca-Cola logos into the designs. To simplify the Chinese student attire, school uniforms, tracksuits, dungarees and ultra-boxy tailored clothing and the mom jeans that we are seeing day to day.

Chen Peng has already won the hearts of Rihanna and Lady Gaga with his one size fits all puffer jackets and mini bulldog purses. Launching his career in 2015 with his intensive beauty and fashion background from London and working at Christian Dior. Chen’s visionary designs challenge conventional beauty ideals and explore size, gender, and personality. His fascination with individuality paired with a sharp talent in pattern making sets the foundation for Chen’s signature “one-sized” designs: a diverse line of garments that can be adjusted to fit bodies of any size. Most what was on the runway had a vinyl shiny finish material with a very futuristic feeling, playful accents, and bold colors. Chen's was the only brand on the schedule with existing US stockists like Opening Ceremony, Dover Street Market, and Farfetch.

Brand CLOT was established in 2003 by founders Edison Chen and Kevin Poon. Their runway philosophy on "East Meets West" had much American inspiration from hoodies, Chicago Bull Jerseys to pajama pants and skater-hip hop vibes. CLOT is proud to share a common vision with the partners of the event as Paul Fang, CEO of Suntchi states, “We also carry a mission to bridge the Chinese designers and brands to the American fashion community.”

Artist Łukasz Horbów presents illustrations of the best runway looks from New York Fashion Week A+W 018, including Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang and Calvin Klein. 

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-New-York-Fashion-Week-2018-Alexander-Wang.jpg
 

“Take it to the runway,” Marc Jacobs pronounced during a preview of his new Ready-to-Wear collection during NYFW 018 back in february. And during Fashion Week, Marc Jacobs did just that, with a fearless endorsement of the kind of fashion about which he is truely passionate, audacious, and demonstrative.

Alexander Wang show is his strongest in a while, with strong symbols of what made the late 20th-cen. corporate life sweet. Since Condé Nast has moved to Wall Street, now most of the offices at Ivory Tower are empty. Therefore, Wang used the iconic tower at Times Square in Manhattan for his runway show. He created a centrally located venue in the office and realized another lifetime.  

By filling the American Stock Exchange building with a silo´s worth of popcorn, Belgian-born designer Raf Simons has marked his first year at Calvin Klein. The silo´s were not ment to eat but to sit in. Each and every time Simons includes America and it´s culture and politics and draws inspiration for his collections and shows.  Just to remind, his previous s+s 018 show was inspired by an American nightmare. Simons manages (very self-conscious) that his messages quite often overwhelm the actual collections.
