SS17 Sunglasses Collaboration: FAKBYFAK X Manish Arora

The collection includes 2 styles, each in 4 color combinations.
Inspiration came from the mood and themes of Manish Arora's FW’16 clothing collection “Hell’s Belle", which has an amalgamation of creative influencers from Twin Peaks to Haribo, with a sprinkling of Americana, African and the extravagance style of Burning Man.

The frame’s models are a reworked take on the form of classic aviator glasses.  With mathematical precision, the familiar form was redesigned, adding rotating lenses, resulting in an accidental provocative flavour.

Ironically inverted aviator frames resulted in an unexpectedly feminine manner, and became the idea for another model in the collection.



ENNIGALDI Handbags - For The Love of Art

The Mesopotamia Collection
The love of Art is at the core of Ennigaldi and the first collection is inspired by Mesopotamian art, which shows a unique emphasis on texture, weight and strong definition.
SARPANIT - Mother Goddess 

Drawing from a palette of majestic ultramarine and earthy tones of ochre and sand, the bags reflect the culture and aesthetics of Mesopotamia.
Each handbag is named after a Babylonian goddess and regarded as an amulet to guide and protect its carrier along their way.
TIAMET -Primordial Goddess of the Ocean

Instilled with unearthly powers to use on earth, every goddess is a testament to the powers and potential of every woman.
 The Babylonian goddesses can inspire today’s women to seize their power, their purpose and embark on their own unique journey.
AYA - Goddess of Light

Featuring laser-cut Babylonian motifs in the finest Italian leather, custom-designed Italian hardware and formed by the meticulous work of Italian craftsmen, the Ennigaldi handbag is not only inspired by art but is a work of art in itself.

Ports 1961 AW17 Womens Collection

Titled:Coming home, The A/W 17, Ports 1961 collection marks a homecoming for Creative Director Nataša Čagalj and her design team, who all studied in London at Central Saint Martins.

 The city is also the location of their studio, where this collection was conceived and developed.

Aptly, home and the house - places of familiarity and comfort - inform the collection.

 Home is interpreted as a place of safety, which allows one to be comfortable enough to experiment, relax and express personality.

 Objects, colours and textures from the home inspire the pieces, which are put together with the signature humour and refinement that underlies Ports 1961.

 Just as our possessions and the objects we choose to live with always reflect the self, these elements suggest and define the taste and style of the Ports 1961 woman.


This season, she is prepared, protected and tough.

Fyodor Golan AW17 at London Fashion Week

Sprayed colour prints were inspired by the large scale artworks of Katharina Grosse. The designers were fascinated by the way Grosse expressively uses bold colours within a space, consuming them, spraying raw rainbows through and over everything in her way.

Graphic shapes are printed and stitched on to garments.


Video of the show's finale:


Prints are leopard, camouflage and checked.


Silhouettes were constructed to be protective yet feminine and soft.

Post-It note shapes bring freedom of expression to the garments through simple messages and reminders.

The designer duo are fans of the Powerpuff Girls and translated their iconic qualities of simplicity of line, colour and mood in to prints and embroideries.
