Dice Kayek, vision of modern femininity.

This month, the Fashion house Dice Kayek is our Fashion Designer of the month. This brand, affiliated to the Fédération Française de la Couture, presents a subtle and definitely modern vision of women elegance. The story of the Fashion house makes you travel from Istanbul to Paris. Check it out. Behind fashion creation there is always a great fashion designer. In the case of Dice Kayek, they are 2 amazing women, Ece et Ayse Ege. 2 sisters, originally from Istanbul – Turkey. They created the brand Dice Kayek in 1992 in Paris. Ece Ege attended to fashion classes at Esmod in Paris. Since then, the 2 sisters became a fashion symbol in Istanbul but also are a great representative of modern elegance.

Paco Rabanne, future visions by Le Printemps

Paco Rabanne, future visions by Le Printemps

The french luxury department store Le Printemps presented its vision of the future by inviting the avant-gardist brand Paco Rabanne to a special set at the heart of the parisian shop. In the continuous aim to become one of the edgy references for luxury in Europe, Le Printemps is always reinventing itself by always proposing surprising, original and high-fashion animations. After one of the most glamorous luxury christmas in partnership with Chanel, now it is the moment to get a hint of the future with Paco Rabanne. I must say that since the end of the Mr.Rabanne era, the Brand Paco Rabanne was more focusing on Fragrances than Fashion. Now, with a new Artistic Director and this new beautiful operation, we feel that the brand’s heritage is still its force. In deed, Paco Rabanne has a new Artistic Director. It’s name: Manish Arora. He is indian and has followed a…

Jean-Claude Jitrois is back (bag)

There are names that we cannot forget. And among all the great fashion designers, definitely we will always remember Jean-Claude Jitrois as the master of Skin. This winter, the iconic Fashion house is launching its first Handbag collection based on their know-how on leather. Jean-Claude Jitrois is our Fashion Designer of the month. Faithful to the Jitrois aesthetic, the Margot adopts three different luxury guises; deep aqua crocodile, pearl grey python and soft grège leather. With sharp and pure lines reminiscent of the structured style of the 1950s, the Margot bag is crafted entirely in France and stands as a testimony to the unique savoir-faire of the French ateliers. Particular care has been taken in its unique composition with both sides of the outer shell forming an elegant casing, enveloping the interior. The handle, stitched by hand at its base on a leather mount with loops of polished steel, is the…

Couture is most of the time a matter of taste, but when fashion becomes Couture, the world is emphasized, sublimated, highlighted, desired… well, sometimes, we touch god’s creation. Some Couturiers play with colors, others with shapes… some will produce a great entertainment show, others will just highlight the beauty of a curve. Martin Grant is not a showman but after a new collection, the world looks more beautiful. Not over-the-top, just simply perfect. Martin Grant is our Fashion Creator of the Month. Martin Grant was born in Australia (Melbourne) in 1966. He is what most of fashion journalists called “the Australian little miracle”. At the age of 16 he launches his first ready-to-wear collection and opened his atelier in the fashionable area of Collins St. At 18 years old he makes his first appearance in the Australian Vogue. After a short interlude in order to learn the art of Sculpture, Martin Grant…

Sometimes fashion design touches poetry and according to me that is what makes Anne Valérie Hash a creative talent. Her art is often a pure well cut “sensitiveness”. She is our Fashion creator of the month.
