The woman from Tom Ford’s SS 2018 collection looked classy with a slight hint of a bad-ass nuance to her personality. Her clothes are undeniably comfy, appealing and alluring. The designer explored the minimalistic appearance, an approach often seen presented at NYFW for SS 2018.

I don’t know if it’s the background for the show, but Ulla Johnson’s SS collection had me fallen in love with the clothes. I’m feeling the calmness in the colors she chose for this collection. I’m feeling the soft fabrics. It looks feminine and gentle, like a dream.

GCDS’ collection is like a breath of fresh air among all the disproportionate romance going on.

Monse stands out from the crowd by having a lovely, down to earth collection, with sporty clothes mixed with casual high heels, socks here and there and hats.

I was surprised by how much I liked Milly’s collection. The tops are tiny, therefore quite revealing and I love that.

Adeam

Adeam is definitely one of the most well-made collections from this NYFW edition. And although the designer joined the existing obnoxious trends happening at the moment on the runway, the collection looks somehow unique from the rest. Fabrics are alluring, colors are mature, cuts are perfect.

Bibhu Mohapatra left me speechless with an outstanding collection of dresses looking very different from everything happening trend wise. He sent down the runway luxurious looking silhouettes to which I had a hard time choosing a favorite. Execution is perfect, down to the last detail. Colors are earthy and elegant. Shapes are flattering and feminine.

Tibi had lovely long dresses and played with monochromatic silhouettes. The collection is elegant and modern yet unpretentious.

 

 

 

First Impression: In The Working NYFW SS 2018 Leaves Clues of Minimalistic Next Summer

NYFW is still in the workings, yet a first part is close to its end, and continues shortly after, on Monday, which is tomorrow. Speaking of this week, the shows that happened are the first glimpse of what’s going to happen for SS 2018, but that certainly doesn’t mean that we already have it all unraveled. Next week is just as important, and I’m wondering if the styles we had seen this week are going to be present in the upcoming shows.

This week I have seen designers greatly inclined to an even more minimalistic approach in their SS 2018 collections. Silhouettes are designed to look unpretentious, practical, useful and for service. It supposed to be making you feel dressed well at work, on the street and somewhere at a party. The good looks are in the hands of lace, embroidery, ruffles, and cut-outs. And yet, there’s moderation in everything that’s added to make clothes look more than just a piece of garment. The result looks good and satisfying. We almost want it to happen, we want it to be this way.
In many instances, the known shape has been broken and reassembled, a trend that we all know very well from SS 2017 collections. Androgyny is carefully explored.

 

Maceo Plex is Ready to Release New EP Under Maetrik Name, The Announcement Comes With a First Teaser Track

Maceo Plex is awakening his Maetrik alter ego by planning on releasing new stuff in late September under, yes, Maetrik name. I’ve been dying on hearing if that’s any news of his comeback, and voila, it happened!

And of course I’ve done my Sherlock work, after which I’ve concluded the following: the new EP is appropriately named ‘Return’, and to make it even better, the artist is giving us the possibility of choosing between a vinyl or digital version. A teaser track came together with the announcement of ‘Return’, giving us a small taste of what’s yet in hiding, till 29 September, date announced by Clash Lion records, the Barcelona-based label, who’s responsible for this release.

On the ‘Cortex 11-B’ teaser track, I first stumbled on its non-poetic name, which has confused my brain cells greatly. Once I’ve got it, everything seemed better, and I obviously very much enjoyed listening to it.
