Adding a new dimension of dazzle to its collection, Ports 1961 puts its mastery of style and craftsmanship on full display, as they present sequins on a multitude of canvases! For those in search for a feminine and alluring look, the sequin embroidery top and dress would be a perfect choice as the sequins scintillate with every graceful step. For a cool and understated look, the black khaki and red wool knit oversized jumper with oversized sequins or the sequin bee sneakers are the perfect choice in its unique and chic style – a perfect balance of the stunning impact of sequins in both shine and movement.

PORTS 1961 AW17 COLLECTION HOME COMING

Homecoming

 

Paying homage to a place Ports 1961 calls home, the AW17 Womenswear Collection presents both bold and subtle explorations of household objects – reminiscing places of familiarity and comfort. With their tailoring prowess at the fore, the collection showcases the extraordinary skills of the Ports 1961 design team – who the designer Nataša Čagalj studied in London at Central Saint Martins. The recurring elements of household items in glasses and vases are incorporated and reinterpreted with ease through skilful manipulation of cuts and forms and seamlessly translate into wearable pieces. A fresh and novel approach, Ports 1961’s “homecoming” showcases an original take while still being grounded in the classic Ports 1961 style.

 

VERSUS VERSACE PRE-SPRING 2018

Instinct and attitude: Styles clash and combine. Silhouettes contrast.

Pinstripes are subverted with tailoring for the street: the stripes wide, the cuts playing with the idea of uniform, perfectly paired with sportswear layers.

Laced eyelets turn a masculine shirt into a corset dress, the lacing with a functional draw-string for utilitarian edge.

Cropped jackets in garment-dyed denim have exaggerated moto sleeves, crop tops and skater skirts emphasize the provocative effect of short layers.

Oversized plaids play with scale on a men’s car coat. Match with a buttoned-up shirt and cropped, flared utilitarian pants for a look that twists the norm.

Techno tweed is matched with unexpected fabrics, like black patent for a gilet and pants, or raw- edged with vintage denim for pants and a western jacket.

The VERSUS lion is reimagined by hand, appearing as patches on denim jackets and T-shirts, as well as intarsia knits.

A new camouflage, cut-up from the new VERSUS lion, is printed onto a long-sleeve cropped dress with safety pinned cut-outs at the waist.

Motocross style VERSUS logos flash across sweatshirts and fine knits. While knit sweaters are padded with motorcross detailing.

Punk mood comes in a one-sleeve dress slashed at the front, then held by a safety pin through eyelets. Fil coupe give unexpected elegance to a slash-sleeve T-shirt dress.

Grommets add toughness, whether to men’s denim jackets, or women’s skirts that are slashed then partially laced

Logos are key, like the VERSUS logos on a white men’s sweatshirt: one in pink graffiti, the other embroidered with long threads left hanging.

Fluid dresses get a hard edge, with slip and flapper dresses cut and reassembled from chiffon, georgette, net and printed T-shirt jersey, the seams overlocked and engineered like the insides exposed.

VERSUS bags with a new iconic buckle have flashes of neon colour. Sneakers have platform treads. Heel sandals come with socks. Bucket hats and VERSUS caps finish the look.

“The VERSUS generation stands for individuality. It’s about an instinctive mix, an open mind, a carefree attitude.” Donatella Versace

ba&sh x Jay Ahr Capsule Party Collection + 2017 X’mas Picks

for christmas 2017, ba&sh is presenting its evening styles created along with designer jay ahr. jonathan riss. discreet, passionate, a globetrotter and a fan of artisanry, for almost 10 years the Belgian designer has been dressing up women, from Paris to New York, in fairytale dresses that you often find on the red carpet…


an original, ultra-feminine collection with the wow factor for girls who want to be beautiful, nice, sexy and to dance! barbara talks about jay ahr “we’ve always liked his ‘luxurious’ style teamed with a cool, modern idea of femininity, his sumptuous fabrics and original combinations, we like the same things”.  Sharon adds “we’ve always liked his designs, his dresses are simple and yet hide so much complexity, the work is meticulous and precise and the details carefully chosen.”

it’s the embodiment of the ba&sh spirit: feeling beautiful, being able to move, being free. rhinestones to glitter, fabrics which flatter the figure, accessible shapes, for all women.


together, they came up with these exceptional pieces, a real collaboration based on key values that the two brands hold dear: know-how and attention to detail. the symbiosis is sensational: a jumpsuit, the iconic ba&sh brand product, reinvented in black and white, the epitome of chic. the print, a brand favourite, also invites itself onto a bustier dress.

here, detailing on the back embellishes and enhances a white mini dress. the light of the rhinestones also makes an appearance on necklines, on a lightweight dress in black voile.

ba&sh is freedom, we wear them day and night, trainers or heels, we do whatever we want, that’s all that matters! a street-art style, we love quirkiness. it is the brand’s audacity that is showcased. a big evening out style, for ultimate femininity. ba&sh again and always.

 

 

 

JOHN GALLIANO SPRING/SUMMER 2018 COLLECTION

DON’T CRY BABY: IT’S A GALLIANO BAD GIRL MAKEOVER

Tired of being good? The Spring/Summer collection from Galliano presents a beautiful embrace of the bad girl. As an interpretative homage to John Waters’s cult romance musical, Cry Baby, creative director Bill Gaytten has channeled a romance between star-crossed lovers—a veritable push-and-pull of tailleur and flou. With the film’s Drapes and Squares in mind, he proposes a buoyant intermingling of Teddy Boy suits andprom dresses in a sugary palette of pastels.

True to the atelier spirit of the Maison, updated details advance these looks beyond mere camp. A petal printsilk chiffon is re-embroidered with floaty petals; full-skirt dresses are underpinned with metallic lurex for added edge; men’s shirts are enhanced with rakish, ruched plackets, while boxy jackets boast shawl collars of leopard;bias-cut dresses emerge from the boudoir; handsome frock coats evoke Galliano’s continued love affair with historicism.

And amidst this reworked finery, there exists a constant tease towards the art of déshabillé thanks to slip dresses with delicate lace incrustations and floral bud adornments, and ingénue lingerie that packs a colorful punch.

Footwear gets a shake-up with buckled black and white winkle pickers and diamante kitten heels. Rocker boots givethat rebel yell.

As the infamous Cry-Baby would say, “You’re cool Allison; you just look square.
