TOTEM FASHION welcomes KATTRI

After an experience in the fashion industry with womenswear label Isolda, Amanda Gerbasi decided to pursue her passion of design. This translated itself into jewellery design and the founding of KATTRI.

Due to the environmental and social challenges of mining at KATTRI we strive to use ethically sourced materials. The gemstones used by KATTRI are conflict-free, and for the most part, sourced and cut in Brazil.

Amanda believes that all the things she has seen and experienced in life (plus her genetic fabric) influence the aesthetic choice of the jewellery pieces she creates. However, she has a clear attraction to pure geometric shapes and repetition. Strong visual impact is achieved through the structure of the pieces themselves rather than through ornamentation.

ILJA FW14-15

Lumina is a collection inspired by light. Artists like James Turrell and Olafur Eliasson, who are inspired by light, space and reflections, were a big influence on this collection. Light is a bare necessity, but intangible at the same time. It defines forms, shapes and spaces but also triggers the viewers perception and emotions. With Lumina we tried to capture these emotions. The phenomenons of light and the transition of light from day to night. The transition of light from day to night, the time of the day and the difference between artificial and natural light are translated into vibrant colors against hard black and white contrast. Diffuse colors next to richer contrast colors and reflections. In the prints the light is represented in geometrical lines and strokes of light in black and white and a vibrant red. The use of soft and fluid materials in contrast with harder and glittery or textured materials in contrast with matte and shiny materials. Double face two toned fabrics represents the change of light. In the collection we find boxy, straight and geometrical shapes combined with more feminine, fluid and organic shapes with a minimal, sharp and graphical touch. To create a strong feminine and modern collection. Mainly clean finished with raw edge contrast and subtle color contrast details. That is Lumina.

Tony Ward FW14-15

Tony Ward s’inspire pour cette collection du tableau de maître du XIXème siècle "Tempête de neige ou Hannibal traversant les Alpes" par William Turner qui exprime les forces puissantes et contradictoires de la nature. Un sombre nuage orageux domine les cieux ; le soleil tente désespérément de s’infiltrer à travers les nuages; une avalanche de blanc menace la montagne… Couleurs chaudes et terriennes et tons aquatiques coexistent dans cette Collection où rafales, averses et nuages créent une composition dynamique dominée par un puissant contraste clair obscur. La collection Automne Hiver 2014/15 imite le tableau romantique ; elle en est tout aussi grandiose et imposante. Le cuir, Le jacquard, et le satin peint à la main créent un patchwork de couleurs qui miment une texture de peinture à l’huile. Les looks qui épousent les formes avec des volumes et des mouvements de tissu imposants expriment la furie de la tempête. Transparences et décolletés plongeants contrastent avec des vestes cintrées collet monté à inspiration baroque. Les pièces de dentelle délicatement coupées s’entremêlent harmonieusement avec des matériaux plus bruts. Cette collection exprime une silhouette féminine qui met en valeur une femme de caractère dont la beauté transparaît dans le vêtement et l’allure.

Charlie Le Mindu FW14-15

Paris. 2014. Charlie Le Mindu introduces a new genre in cabaret, where complex heroines flit between ladies of the night and mystical dancing prophets.

As we have come to expect, the hair, a material both sacred and fetishist, enables the designer to give the collection a concentrated rhythm.

We discover once more, the inspirational aesthetic of a free and poetic Haute Coiffure, alongside painted bodies emblazoned with Optical Art.

A journey, inside Paris, evoking feelings of déjà vu and memories of black and white films: crossing Place de l’Etoile, through the labyrinthine Père Lachaise, Porte Ternes, the futuristic buildings of La Defense, and not forgetting Les Invalides.

Through this, with an orgasmic musical score, and analytical forms, Charlie le Mindu offers Paris a breath of fresh air taking us away from the typical grey monotony
