résistance à l'amour
The coexistence of war and everyday life inspired this concept using ideas of historical minority resistance and rebellion. We have philosophically redefined 'resistance' and thus hexa by kuho 13FW collection was conceived. Our image is a minimalist representation of military and civilian relief while still utilizing avant-garde sensibility
The ultimate theme that is currently proposed is ‘Love’ again. hexa by kuho defines that the love is to resist the chain of emotions and to be free from the bondage of social conventions.
The missile, torpedo and the blueprint of arms are humorous representations as the state impelled and outburst of emotion and the emotion to Love itself. Since hexa by kuho has developed print surfaces variations using silicon and fabric bonding with laser cuts, the motives are newly reformed with unique expressions.
Imagine a place where people breathe and celebrate art without judgment and competition. At every step there is a discovery of a giant expression of art that leaves you enthralled. This Autumn Winter, Manish Arora brings the essence of such imagination on the runway. Manish inspired by his last visit to Burning Man in Nevada breathes the essence of the whole journey through this collection.
The print story progresses from the vast day landscape with cloudy blue sky recreated with layers of black and white elements and hint of warm colours over it, moving to evening clouds mixed with neon motifs and a play of geometric lines with neon rays.
Geometric Motif and borders are created translating the psychedelic mirage forms from Burning Man with lustrous laser-cut material, sequin embroideries, beads and Chains.
Peplum dresses and skirts are creating a new body consciousness at Manish Arora. Along with oversized tops and coats contrasting with pencil skirts and fitted pants. Sweatshirts have been developed in a full range of techniques and with his unique embellishment display.
This fall winter collection includes knitwear for the very first time, welcoming pleated dresses, lurex sweaters and revisited twin sets. Lingerie has been developed in partnership with the brand Insensée.
The colour palette comprises of shades of blue from the sky with a wide use of black, navy blue and green as the base along with the stimulants of bright pink, florescent orange, mustard and neon green.

For Fall / Winter 2013, GERLAN JEANS, toasts Eccentric Ladies of the past, present
and future. Inspired by women who are born with a unique sense of style and dedicate their lives to the pursuit of rare beauty - ECCENTRIC LADY is a collection of illustrative graphic knitwear, evening inspired sportswear, surrealistic prints, and sculptural proportion.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary – Cecil Beaton
This season, GERLAN JEANS takes the printed surface to a new dimension, with a special collection of expressionistic knits, in collaboration with New York based knitwear label, DEGEN. Fine, richly colored wools are used to illustrate the surface, creating a painterly effect that extends into woven separates. Texture and dramatic proportion contrast - fluid georgettes drape against sculptural neoprene and tech outerwear is cropped for a formal effect. Richly saturated colors, bold illustrative graphics, and hand painted accessories express the eclectic energy of the ECCENTRIC LADY in all of us.

In line with his previous collections, Tatsuro Horikawa designed for Julius a collection inspired by the darkness. A bit aggressive and rough the collection remains positively energetic. The collection is very subtle with high attention to the details and the materials used. The work on the 100% black garments sublimes pieces of wool, leather and jersey. Asymmetrical or oversized, the outfits may easily remind the previous collections but it doesn’t really matter as the design and the work get cleaner, at the same time more elaborated and concise.
After seven seasons and shows under his name, Julien Fournié densifies his designs, following the same route an Asian calligrapher takes, aiming to reach the essence. Under the influence of his retrospective shows held in fall 2012, in Stockholm and Singapore, the young couturier has developped a new conscience of his style genes and underlines them in this collection dominated by black, white and silver grey.
Kinesic stripes on satin pieces, patterns of jacquard in lurex, computer integrated circuitry reproduced in fine lace, and tailsuit jackets with zippers accentuate the hypergraphic aspect, nodding at both futurism and japonisme.
Nude organza or leather are embellished with bakelite or with hand-painted motifs of molecules. A few touches of bright color only glitter on origami pants in pink changing to copper, and on the train of an evening gown in night blue shining with purple. Shirts and blouses in dense, white, immaculate triple organza display a new curvy sleeve, elegantly folded and finished with a collar cuff. Point d’esprit tulle plays on straight transparency, swakara fur is inlaid in suits and dresses alike, building up the couture signature with clear respect for Claude Montana and Gianfranco Ferré.
The final dress, made with the legendary Parisian embroiderer Lesage, bristles with black rhodoid and metal, ruffling as the body moves.
The typical curve in the heels of the Walter Steiger stilettos and sandals matches the winding silhouette of a delicate femme fatale.
