They Can Cut All The Flowers, They Cannot Keep Spring From Coming.
A few weeks ago I went to Stockholm to see the winner’s show of the H&M Design Award 2014. Eddy Anemian, a 24-year-old French bloke took the prize with his collection, They Can Cut All The Flowers, They Cannot Keep Spring From Coming, inspired by Tilda Swinton in the movie I Am Love and the French painter Ingres.
It was such a beautiful collection and I love how he had cut and reconstructed floral print fabrics into the most amazing silhouettes and fluid shapes. It was surprising, romantic, elegant and with a feeling of haute couture. Luckily for us the prize gives Anemian the chance of developing some pieces from the winning collection to be sold in selected H&M stores later this year.
After the show I went backstage to take a closer look at the collection and the fabrics, which only made me and even bigger fan of his work. He told me his dream is to start his own label – fingers’ crossed this will happen. I can’t wait to see more from this shooting star.
A headless outfit from Amsterdam two weeks ago where I went to see Supertrash’s SS14 show (more about this coming up). It was my first time in Amsterdam and I only got to spend 24 hours in the city but I’m definitely coming back. Only next time I’m gonna bring my flats – Amsterdam is a city with lots of cobblestones.
I’m super excited about the coming Proenza Schouler x MAC collection, which will hit stores in April. Definitely one of the best collaborations this year. The makeup itself is quite simple and very true to the always laid-back look of the Proenza Schouler girl but the packaging is as irresistible as anything else Proenza Schouler. I read somewhere that the ombre packaging is inspired by a previous collection – I’m guessing SS10.
With Peter Pilotto for Target, Ostwald Helgason for Aldo, Sophia Webster for J.Crew and Riccardo Tisci for Nike, 2014 is really an exciting year for designer collaborations. We have rounded up 11 of the best over at LUELLE (and that’s your cue to check it out).
