LAST LOOK Reykjavik Fashion Festival By Jules Kim & Alessandro Simonetti

26 March 2013, 19.16 | Posted in Fashion, editorial | 4 comments »

fashion week reykjavik

The LAST LOOK from a fashion runway show dictates the designer’s aesthetic and overall direction for the season. During the Reykjavik Fashion Festival, a forum created to nurture and celebrate the Icelandic fashion industry, seven juried designers showcased their collections amongst a sea of editors, buyers, and fashionistas.

Most nations build a fashion week to be accepted into a global spectrum of heels, makeup and models; yet RFF has taken a more innocent and raw approach to their platform. They would have to, considering their country’s landscape and whimsical weather patterns. A common thread shared by all of the brands featured was not only their ancestry, but their passion to participate and reveal the tenderness of the opportunity itself. There was a heartfelt excitement backstage that not even Paris or New York Fashion Weeks could match. These organizations are already tried and true with nothing to prove but diligence. The energy is not new and authentic; it is jaded and tense. Iceland’s backstage was like starting over again, complete with newbie dressers and fledgling models, yet there was an authenticity that with the help of producers from Heidelberg’s Atelier Kontrast (http://www.atelierkontrast.com/), made for a memorable and dignified event. When we become absorbed by the Who, What, and Wears (pun intended), let’s not forget about Why?

The following posts define each designers’ LAST LOOK from each collection at RFF. The runway ranged from feminine and delicate to unisex goth styles. The briefs to follow are straight from each brand/designer’s own unique ethos. It would not seem quite fair to reinterpret their own intentions in my words.-JulesKim.

HighSnobette Best Of 2012

QueenoftheJungleMelodyEhsanijpg HighSnobette Best Of 2012

What we have always loved about fashion is it’s potential to bring joy. We as HighSnobette editors feel so lucky to not only have witnessed many of these special moments but to also have come to know and watch grow many of the artists and designers behind some of our favorite projects. Below in no particular order we share what we regard as some of the best, joy-bringing efforts of 2012:

Designer Melody Ehsani’s star has been on the rise for quite some time now, but her “Queen of the Jungle” necklace (above) in many ways stamped her official arrival. We lost count of the stylish celebrities spotted in this vivacious fun piece.

Leah McSweeney has always been a force of personality. She literally is the MTTM brand, as backed by an intensely loyal supporting staff + fan base. Like many young brands the label went through its stumbles when investors pulled out, but the tenacious McSweeney was able to hold on to the name and this year the label found its own inimitable stride again, as marked by the brand’s “Supreme Bitch” snapback cap, which received the blessing of none other mega-style star Rihanna.

See many more “bests” on the next page. And a very Happy New Year to all. Thank you so much for your support in 2012.

Bijules1 NYFW: Bijules The Seize Kind Unveil Party

Bijules designer Jules Kim revealed her latest jewellery offerings at a party titled “The Seize Kind,” held at the ultra-plush Gramercy Park Hotel on Friday evening. Waiters displayed her offerings on trays (which one lamp-shaded party attendee was incensed to discover she couldn’t sample!) and like fashion has shifted to brighter dreams so, too, have accessories, as reflected by Kim’s designs–ever original, yet more twinkly and lighter this time around. In the image taken at the event above, that’s galatic beauty Kim on the left, with her down-to-earth-gorgeous friend and design partner (they worked on  the swimsuit line Nyked together), Lorenzo Martone.

Refinery revealed some images of Nyked’s Spring 2011 line, a collaborative effort between what might be the best-looking designer combo in all the land, Lorenzo Martone and the much-adored by HighSnobette, Jules Kim of Bijules. And it sounds like this newbie line, whose first lookbook we posted in June, is doing well–it’s soon to be carried by both Saks and Shopbop!

BijulesFingerRingAhalife1 Bijules Three Hinged Finger Ring

Never shy to poke at the edges of darkness, Bijules designer Jules Kim designed this three-hinged ring from a mold of her own finger, and admits, “I wanted it to be a little part of me and it had to be weird. There are conversations to be had about everything I wear or design.” It’s available now on Ahalife, where you can also check out a video interview with Kim on her design process. More images of the ring on the next page. On another note, Kim is accompanying her accessory line on a bit of a world tour. First stop was Paris, which we’re told went well. Through today, you can find her in Bassano, Italia.

 Jules Kim & Lorenzo Martone Celebrate Nycked

We had the refreshing pleasure of attending the private shinding Jules Kim hosted with Lorenzo Martone at the Gansevoort Hotel in New York, to celebrate Nycked swimwear. If you’ve read us a while you know that we’re long time admirers  of Jules Kim’s talent , sophisticated edge and undeniable hotness. Needless to say Lorenzo Martone (who’s also very easy on the eyes) is now on our radar as he’s had the smarts to associate himself with  dame Bijules. View a few images on the flip and lots more here.

HS Exclusive: Bijules Gold Nipple Plate

Bijules7 HS Exclusive: Bijules Gold Nipple Plate

While at the 80%20 event last night, one of New York’s most stylish residents, Bijules designer Jules Kim, popped by. When she enters a room, it’s really kind of amazing what happens, she has this sweeping presence and ephemeral beauty that stops everyone in their tracks to the point where people are flat-out staring. I mean just her cheekbones….for days! And yet she’s totally approachable and warm and magically charming. While we were catching up on all the latest, she reached under her top and pulled out her latest creation, a gold nipple plate (!!), which stuns with its original beauty. Not sure when we will see this as part of a collection, but you are definitely getting an advanced view.

Many more images of Jules after the flip, with close-ups on her shoes, bag, and of course those cheekbones.
