Alexandre Plokhov - "Antipode" A/W 2013-14

Leave a Comment
Alexandre Plokhov is back to basics.  Looking back in year 1997 when he moved to New York, Plokhov reconsiders the basic notions he has been forming on in an unscrupulous sense, within a critical, progressive approach, gazing at the broadened horizons of the new light gained. He deviates the path back to his original beginning, enclosing past and present as polar antipodes. Also Plokhov collects the energy and re-focuses on the very basic steps of his work reverting the sides of his attraction.

Vibe Johansson brings an alternative angle to simple, sensual styles that question convention. Nothing superfluous is to be found. Cutting right to the bone the simplicity of her designs encompass both classic minimalism and modern draping with a hint of avant garde.
Textures and shapes become the focus of the otherwise simple silhouettes. Geometrical shapes in the pattern making combined with the best quality fabrics make for the understated elegance that Vibe Johansson adds to everyday wear.

The collection A/W 2013-14 is a continuation of the last one.  Chen’s work is the result of various inspirations, leaning toward a particular affinity for Shanghai–the Eastern apex of all things new, old, eastern and western. For this collection designer took a trip to the small town of Cicheng and was inspired by the bricks and stones of the historic architecture he found there. With the shades of black and grey Chen managed to create one timeless collection.

For upcoming season British designer is taking us to journey into his Gothic fairytale placed in haunting forest filled with ghosts. Pale faces and lips, grey eyes, messy wet alike windy hair and long gowns. Presentation of wandering soul. For this collection Pugh has done some changes.
