Genève Florance is a designer that has recently risen above the surface with the release of their first collection “Comment puis-je perdre en suivant Dieu” which translates to “How could I lose while following God”, a song that inspired the direction and naming of their collection.

Alexander McQueen “Golden Shower” SS 1998 R-T-W

“Golden Shower”, is a vile and erotic phrase aptly used for Alexander McQueen’s 1998 Spring/Summer collection. The title was conjured by Lee in direct response to the sponsors of the show American Express and the upcoming launch of their new Gold Card in the UK. However, it was later replaced by the title, “Untitled”, dueContinue reading “Alexander McQueen “Golden Shower” SS 1998 R-T-W”

Slow Fashion: A Movement

Fashion production makes up 10% of human carbon emissions. Let that sink in, humans produce 34 billion tonnes of carbon emissions each year, of which this industry alone makes up 3.4 billion tonnes of it. I have recently been doing a deep dive into sustainability as opposed to my previous surface-level practices, from which IContinue reading “Slow Fashion: A Movement”

Grails Part 2: D&G Military Flight Jacket and Pants

At this point, I intend to make this grail collection a series. Every few years it seems as though military and bondage styles and clothing become trendy again. We’re taking it back to 2003 with this collection. Dolce and Gabbana had just released their Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter collections. It was immediately caught on, the useContinue reading “Grails Part 2: D&G Military Flight Jacket and Pants”

Alexander McQueen “La Poupée” SS 1997 R-T-W

“La Poupée”, McQueen’s subsequent show after his “Dante” collection was distorted beauty personified. Inspired by Hans Bellmer’s photographs of mutilated and reassembled dolls. McQueen’s runway was all about fictional bodies. To my understanding, McQueen’s collection was a critique of the limitations of the human body, both presenting those limitations and merging them with reality throughContinue reading “Alexander McQueen “La Poupée” SS 1997 R-T-W”

C2H4 Los Angeles: The Future Of Humanity

C2H4 is a utilitarian streetwear brand unlike any other. I felt inclined to shed light on this brand due to its most recent campaign titled “Future City Uniform” for FW21. This retro-futuristic take is not an unpopular approach, however, I haven’t quite seen it done like this before. In this campaign, C2H4 displayed their creativeContinue reading “C2H4 Los Angeles: The Future Of Humanity”

Strongthe is a menswear brand launched in 2019 by Strong Theveethivarak, a London-based designer from Thailand. Only three years old, this brand is a fresh take on menswear.

Alexander McQueen A/W 96 “Dante”

“Dante”, Alexander McQueen’s was shown on March 1, 1996, in the ruined Christ Church in East London. McQueen’s eighth collection is titled “Dante” after Dante Alighieri and inspired by his famous work Divine Comedy. The narrative poem represents the soul’s journey towards God and the stages needed to be passed to attain salvation as takenContinue reading “Alexander McQueen A/W 96 “Dante””

“Highland Rape” FW 1995 Collection By Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen is a household name in fashion. When we think of McQueen we think “provocative”, “genius”, “rebellious”, “anti-establishment”. Now, there isn’t much room for successful or impactful defiance in the industry as we know it, neither is there an acceptance of the abnormal. However, Lee created it in such a way that couldn’t beContinue reading ““Highland Rape” FW 1995 Collection By Alexander McQueen”

Fast Fashion’s 6 Part Relationship With Sustainability

“Fast Fashion”, a term associated with negativity and criticism, is a structure believed to be inherently flawed. “Fast fashion is a term used to describe a highly profitable and exploitative business model based on replicating catwalk trends and high-fashion designs, mass-producing them at low cost”. The main goal is to maximize profits and minimize costs,Continue reading “Fast Fashion’s 6 Part Relationship With Sustainability”
