RAF SIMONS FALL/WINTER 2011/2012

It is devastating that Raf Simons’ fall/winter 2011-2012 will not be produced unless another financial backer steps in.  Raf Simons had severed their manufacturing relationship with Futurepresent.   I hope he find another partner soon. His latest collection for me is the best one that was shown in Milan and Paris.  He delivered a very forward and very wearable collection.  It is really homage to craftsmanship.

These clothes should be in store and in most men’s wardrobes.   I really believe that his own line should survive. People need to see more of Raf creation aside from what he does for Jil Sander.















ETAM LINGERIE New Collection 2011

Here are some of the photos from the Etam Fashion Show that was held on January 24 at Grand Palais, Paris. Karolina Korkova and Angelina Lindvall were the two top models who walk on the show. Gossip Beth Ditto, Karen Elson, Boy George and Alison Mosshart performed live during the show. The best part of the show was the front row audience. Kate Moss sitting side by side with Stephano Pillati and Charlotte Casiraghi, Mario Testino was with Riccardo Tisci and Natalia Vodianova the current face of Etam’s campaign, Jefferson Hack, Karen Mulder, Eva Herzagova, Alexa Chung with Lou Dillon and cute French actor Nicolas Duvauchelle
