WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE


We have always loved the Mulberry campaigns. There are always fresh, young and very inspired. But this one shot by British photographer Tim Walker is, by far, our favourite! It is so cute! Lindsey Wixon is plunged in a Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are atmosphere and the monsters seem "frighteningly" adorable! 

This AW12-13 collection was perfectly autumnal and filled with furs and , was also the occasion of presenting the new it-bag (above all, Mulberry is a renowned luggage and bags house), the Del Rey, named after the new American phenomenom. This bag can be seen in the 1st picture just above.

THE MILAN CIRCUS


We had great expectations about this Milan Fashion Week and they proved to be good ones : the departure of Raf Simons / return of Jil Sander and THE PRADA SHOW. These two non-conformist designers know how to create the buzz either by creating an anti-climactic moment (at Prada, the settings were all white and the clothes were in simple colours with no prints at all) that actually affects us in a very good way, presenting an American sportswear unisex collection that takes inspiration on the Royal Tennenbaums, or by re-inventing forms, Jil Sander confirmed its place in the Milan collections and pursued Raf Simons' work and depiction of men as boyish. Yes indeed, you could say that PRADA & JIL SANDER are our favourite Milan brands!

Of course, there were other shows (and some very good ones!) so here are the major themes in these Milan Menswear Collections  If we had to draw a parallel between Milan and London regarding these Menswear collections, only the sportswear trend stands out. It was everywhere! 
But London is London and Milan is Milan !
