MERILIN KOLK
*Lovina: depicted


november 018

“Lovina: depicted” is a collaboration between fashion designer Merilin Kolk and photographer Cecilia Riis that explores the ambivalence in Kolk’s BA Graduation Collection. Her BA Graduation Collection challenges the sexualization of the female body by covering it. The collection attempts to explore the identity of covered women in our time.

It questions whether covering up the female body can enhance feminine sexuality. Can it feel liberating, and impart dignity and sensuality to women? The graduation project also investigates whether covering, too, can become a form of objectification of the body.

LE-MILE-Magazine-Merilin-Kolk-by-Cecilia-Riis-6.jpg

Merilin’s designs are born from ideas, emotions and observations of the human being in that particular space in time. She works with such concepts as relationships, belonging, identity and sense of reality. Her work explores + pays tribute to the vulnerable within us, and she tries to depict this in wearable form.

Merilin Kolk was born and raised in Estonia, and moved to Norway at the age of 19. Merilin graduated from the National Academy of the Arts in Oslo with a BA in clothing design in June 2018. In Oslo she completed a master’s degree in social economics, before pursuing her passion for fashion design.

MONCLER Genius
*The Project


october 018

An explosion of creative energy; this is the lifeblood running through the Moncler Genius project, a new multi-faceted chapter for the brand combining a variety of contributions which coexist alongside one another, creating a mosaic of differences and extraordinary individuality. These varied voices and approaches, some of which differ vastly from each other, are combined with highly distinctive languages, all brought together in a single design process conceived by Moncler.

>>For Moncler
Genius
change
is necessary,

an ongoing renewal which prompts us to look far ahead, beyond every aesthetic and ideological frontier. Moncler continues to explore the infinite possibilities of its uniqueness, adopting a special mix with autonomous, distinctive meanings. It is as if the present can be read in its contrasting lines whilst projecting itself into a future which begins now. Moncler Genius is a launch platform built on an unrivalled capacity for innovation and technological research, driven by unshakable faith in creativity.

LE-MILE-Magazine-MONCLER-PALM-ANGELS_MONCLER-GENIUS-FW18-(8).jpg

We have chosen designers that differ greatly from each other as we have always spoken to different generations”, says Remo Ruffini, Chairman and CEO of Moncler, who originally conceived this ground-breaking turning point for Moncler.

We constantly need to offer new experiences and new ideas. Moncler Genius is divided into several collections over the year. We have overhauled everything, by overcoming the very concept of seasons. Our approach is monthly, weekly, daily. An approach which considerably reduces the time that elapses between the collections’ presentation and when they actually arrive in the stores”.

There are eight sections that together express the Moncler Genius project, and which involve different creative figures. A task force to yield as many creative areas which define the company’s identity. The brand’s DNA is revealed through the various visions, supporting and cultivating the many and varied options for bringing them to life. Moncler Genius overcomes any and every timeframe and approach: from next June, the collections will be making singularly their debut in Moncler boutiques and selected multi-brand shops and department stores, and will available for a defined period of time, until October, when they’ll be brought together in several Moncler flagship stores as well as pop-up stores in various cities around the world, including NY and Tokyo. A succession which is as emblematic as it is rapid all over the world, and must once again represent speed, movement and true dynamism.

The world has changed”, concludes Remo Ruffini “the digital era has given us a new strength. The consumer wants a less filtered, more direct and above all continuous relationship. This strategic change in direction is the answer to this specific need, as well as a desire”.

ANNA OCTOBER
*Capote´s swan


october 018

For Fall 2018, the Anna October lady is at ease with herself. Her natural manners, along with the grace of her body and mind lustre her clothes. She wears them proudly. Whatever landscape shefinds herself in, it’s her inner landscape that matters. She looks rich as a Capote’s swan, confident asan American feminist artist, feminine as a Parisian demimonde, at the days when women spent hours in the dressing room.

LE-MILE-Magazine-Anna-October-AW18_4.jpg

Wearing the same ensemble, she spends her morning in the countryside, day at the office, and in the evening, she makes her impressive entrance to the most immoderately luxurious of the parties. While being look at, she listens to herself.

Natural fabrics,
bias cuts,
flowing silhouettes

and handmade details highlight the collection. AnnaOctober reinterprets each of the brand’s signature pieces in silk, cotton and wool. Whimsical midi- dresses, tailoring with a playful twist, loose high waisted pants and blouses, shoulder-revealing or inspired by the classics of menswear, make a wardrobe for life, where perfect simplicity and deep luxury are never a contradiction. Artificial flowers, hand-made as a touching curtsy to the values of slow fashion, act as a charming accessory to the offering.

Ultimately comfortable, elaborate and perfectly simplistic at the same time, the collection praises the woman of thousand faces, staying true to the elegance she was born with.

SCHUELLER DE WAAL
*The Gateway To Fashion
s+s_019


october 018

During the last days of Paris fashion week, Dutch design duo SCHUELLER DE WAAL present their vision on fashion in an autonomous presentation at Palais de Tokyo, Toguna. Right when the marathon of fashion weeks frenzy is coming to an end, SDW offers fashion victims or victims of fashion the opportunity of some well deserved Fashion Therapy. Model Iekeliene Stange acts as the fashion therapist, guiding the audience through ‘The Gateway To Fashion’.

Schueller-de-Waal-he-Gateway-To-Fashion-LE-MILE-Magazine-4.jpg

For Spring/Summer 2019 SCHUELLER DE WAAL offer FASHION as HYPNOSIS THERAPY. Rather than offering a new collection the designers want to make a statement about the fast pace of fashion and their incapabilities of keeping up. Driven by the idea of giving former designs a new context and using that as research for the development of new design ideas SDW STUDIO presents a fashion film installation, ‘The Gateway To Fashion’.

The presentation of this autonomous statement serves as a suggestive form of ‘FASHION THERAPY’.

With the thought of slowing down their audience and creating time to reflect in a period of constant rush, SDW make the link to HYPNOSIS THERAPY. The protagonist of the film, a hypnosis therapist with mesmerising eyeballs, takes the viewer through steps of induction going deeper into a spiralling trance world of eclectic future fashion suggestions with every step. The fashion suggestions show a fictive persona representing the viewers repressed inner fashion spirit on an intuitive journey towards unleashed creativity. Just like hypnosis therapists SDW STUDIO aims to plant inspirational alterations and alternative perspectives on fashion in the viewers brain to catalyse change.

In the film the characters are dressed in a mix of SCHUELLER DE WAAL'S collections, communicating that the duo believes in a value of design which remains over time. ‘The Gateway To Fashion’ shows an overview of their work reshuffled into a different aesthetic. The lookbook depicts both worlds of the film. To create new looks from past collections the duo has strictly split apart the two main directions of their collections, classic minimalism vs. quirky, surreal maximalism. The skin of the model reflects actual scenes from the film and becomes a symbol of the connection between real and fiction, the link between both worlds; the gateway.

Pringle of Scotland has long admired the work of illustrator Frida Wannerberger. Each season she illustrates the collection’s key looks, and we were delighted to have her back for Autumn/Winter ‘18 to illustrate our hero pieces in her own unique style.

LE-MILE-Magazine-Frida-Wannerberger-x-Pringle-of-Scotland-all_cutout.jpg

We were also extremely excited to introduce Frida’s work to our products. Launching later this year as part of the Autumn Winter ‘18 collection, our iconic Pringle lion and distinctive diamond argyle get a fresh perspective from Frida, who hand-painted her version of the famous designs for new and exclusive prints.

Frida has always had an intense love for fashion. She trained at Central Saint Martins and after graduating produced merchandise imagery for the IsabellaBlow: FashionGalore! Exhibition at Somerset House. She was also invited as fashion week illustrator-in-residence at Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio. On top of all her project work Frida is a visiting lecturer on the BA Fashion Illustration Course at London College of Fashion.

*Chuck 70 / Felt Collection


october 018

At some point in our youth, we stop playing with toys. But the obsession we have with “things” grows stronger as we get older. We dress as a means of self- expression.

le-mile-magazine_Converse_JWA_FELT_PINK_162843C_Detail1.jpg

We buy objects – however mundane they might be – because they deliver happiness into our lives. Some collect sneakers. Some collect Pez. And some, like Jonathan Anderson, collect art. Also in the second column of Converse x JW Anderson the designer underlines his obsession with art and craft.

The Converse x JW Anderson Chuck 70 *Felt is the exuberant result of Jonathan Anderson´s life-long obsession. 

Anderson has said, the creative process is a giant patchwork of information and imagery “in search of the new, weird, and wonderful.” As the designer continues his collaboration with Converse, he applies this process to, and his passion for art and craft, to the mainstay in fashion and style, the iconic Chuck.

A brilliant combination of colors inform the design of the Chuck 70 *Felt. Premium felt transforms the Chuck 70 into a colorful, bespoke Capsule Collection for fall + winter 018.

But maybe, after all, the Chuck is art?!

october 018

Struck by the timeless modernity of the design language, the effortless construction, and the balanced colour composition of Frank Lloyd Wright´s building - the Johnson Wax Headquarter, Jennifer Brachmann was convinced to create a minimalist collection inspired by the architecture‘s gentle strengths, filigree contours + minimalist opulence.

Brachmann_Spring-Summer-2019-Collection-LE-MILE-Magazine-4.jpg

BRACHMANN‘s 019 summer collection takes the airy mood and organic elements of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and transposes them into contemporary fashion. Long and flowing pleats in dresses, blouses, trousers, and coats, resemble the building’s superbly light pillars. The sleeves‘ rounded raglan constructions mirror the arcs in its lucid roof construction.

The dynamically organic structures are translated into falling pleats that open when moved, while vertically structured fabrics like corduroy or subtle pinstripes designs take up the verticality of the spacious room impression.

Translucent fabrics play with the spherical light effects and the dreamy atmosphere in the swimming pool. Different haptical characteristics of the building‘s materials can be retrieved in different fabrics like silk, cotton batiste, cotton, light merino wool, and corduroy. The collection‘s colour palette transposes the buildings colour mood into today ranging from warm gold, beige, rosé, to bronze, while light blue, teal, and white set counterpoints.

"London-based designer Elliss Solomon has joined forces with SARDIN to create an exclusive capsule collection, celebrating feminist heroes of the past."

 

Founded in 2016, Elliss Solomon established her brand out of a desire to create clothing using environmentally conscious design methods and minimal waste. Solomon maintains that it is vital for her brand to have a low impact on the earth; her designs use natural fabrics, from organic cotton, to hemp and bamboo. With creativity and production processes sharing the same East London space, the Hackney-based designer believes upholding a low carbon footprint is central to her brand’s values. From her print references and tongue-in-cheek placements, to her use of recycled jersey, her namesake brand is underwear and layerwear for today’s smart girl. 

In collaboration with SARDIN, ELLISS has created a range of layerwear paying tribute to activists from the past: Emmeline Lawrence and Millicent Fawcett. The campaigns of the 19th Century, by both Lawrence and Fawcett, for women’s rights are still recognised as significant to this day. Bold black and white screen print of both iconic women feature prominently in this capsule collection for SARDIN.
