 Introducing: Filles à Papa Spring/Summer 2011

Based in Belgium, the duo  behind Filles à Papa  (translation: daddy’s girls) were  inspired by their love of fashion and the energy of New York City, combined with the bling  of Vegas, the laid back street style of Los Angeles and the seductive nights of Ibiza. With not too much bells and whistles we find something very cool about this new line. View their Spring/Summer 2011 collection lookbook on the next page.

 Fahrd Fosté Spring/Summer 2011

Fahrd Fosté  presented his Spring 2011 collection at Participant gallery this past week. The combination of runway and presentation titled “Modern Psychosis,”  started with a film projection illustrating  the  constant noise of the city,  followed by each model being stripped of a word-covered  garment to reveal the apparel collection. As usual Fahrd  does something special by using industrial objects and incorporating them into garments. One of my faves this season. Take a closer look on the next page.

IMG 3780 540x405 Jonathan Simkhai Spring/Summer 2011

With  flawless  set displays at the Griffin, Jonathan Simkhai presented his Spring/Summer 2011 collection yesterday. Styled by Susan Joy with a ’50s “ecolière” twist,  the pieces reflect his skill of adapting menswear into women’s wear. We loved the gold snake shorts and of course the leather bustiers as well as the various trompe l’oeil accessories like the belt (above)  resembling a shirt tied around the waist. Well edited  separates  that make a wardrobe go from ordinary to fabulously chic and fun!

PetShopsGirl1.jpg Pool: Pet Shops Girls Joe Chu

Hi everyone, Lois here, reporting from the Pool trade show in Vegas. Meet Joe Chu, designer for Pet Shops Girl, who, hands down was working the best look I saw all day.

Almost died from the force of falling in love. I swear.
