Valerie Ox’s ‘Cropped’ Collection Spring 2013

31 July 2012, 12.44 | Posted in Fashion, New Designer | No comments »

Lena Emery x Valerie Ox 01 Valerie Oxs Cropped Collection Spring 2013

Designer newcomer Valerie Ox from Berlin just launched her first-ever collection called “Cropped” for Spring/Summer 2013. The collection is inspired by Richard Governor’s film Ghost Town and reflects the playfulness, sophistication and the easy-going attitude of high street fashion. Using high-quality materials such as chiffon and silk, it is especially the shape of the garments that create a very new fashion alter ego. Keep it up Miss Ox! We already can’t wait to see more.

Take a look at the collection on the next page and also don’t miss to visit Valerie Ox’s Tumblr with beautiful 60s inspired moods.

Kanye Dw Collection Brings Out The High School In Fashion Community

AnnaDelloRussoAlexanderMcQueen 540x412 Kanye Dw Collection Brings Out The High School In Fashion Community

It’s been quite the popcorn-muncher post Kanye West’s Dw runway show, held during Paris Fashion Week over this past weekend. Besides mixed reviews, which seemed to be most focused on ill-fitting clothes (which, btw, happens all the time on runways–even with designers with years of experience but is rarely pointed out in reviews) and him cursing during the toast at his own (private) party, the ripples kept coming from his debut show four days later.

First there was Anna Dello Russo (above) wearing head-to-toe Dw to the Alexander McQueen show, then Susie Bubble weighing in and relating back to her own experiences as an outsider (”Walking into a show and having eyes stare at you wondering why you’re even there is something that I’m well used to and on a universally larger scale, before even having put a stitch out, the jury was already out on West’s collection judging by the numerous malicious comments.”), followed by Anna Wintour saying “Ask someone else,” when interviewed about the show and our most favorite yet in terms of high school levels of entertainment value, a NY Times columnist dressing down West for sitting one of the Olsen sisters too near to Lindsay Lohan ’cause the Olsens have somehow paid their dues in fashion while Lindsay almost caused the collapse of Ungaro. Too funny or rather, #seriously?

Our opinion remains the same–some of it was good and let’s wait and see what happens and if he has it in him to go long haul. That being said–goodness this man has the power to make people chatter! He’s known for it in the music world and he’s carried that quality over to fashion and at the very least we’re all certainly more entertained for it.

Highsnobette renatamorales91 540x516 Introducing:Renata Morales Autumn/Winter 2011

I’m very excited to share with you to the stunning work of fellow Canadian Renata Morales. Her Autumn/Winter 2011 collection is filled with the kind of dresses this Snobette would want to wear, highly detailed with a slightly disheveled edge, contrasting couture-like silhouettes with a  certain rawness. The look of the line is modern and sexywith a hint of badass. In other words you can put on your Kirkwood’s and head to a gala then switch into combat boots and jump on your Harley. (In the movie of my life this makes perfect sense–you get the idea.)  It was hard to pick a favorite, so take a look at the whole line on the flip. Merci Kenza!

shao yen aw11 16 540x359 Introducing : Shao Yen Godess Autumn/Winter 2011

Looking at Shao Yen’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection we see all the right moves .  Great use of color and texture while providing silhouettes that are modern and edgy but not so avant- garde,  so as to make the woman who wears them disappear. Via lesmads. view the complete  collection on the flip as well as a short video that allows you to view the clothes move. Enjoy!
