AW12 POP PR Press Day

UK: London’s Talented Bunch

Designer treasure trove of the weird and wonderful was on show for AW12 at POP PR’s Press Day. An eclectic mix of rising fashion designer stars and one grand dame, the sheer creative genius of POP’s clients leaves one dizzy.

Designer Francesca Marotta’s AW12 collection is an almost gothic affair. Inspired by the women of Sicily who have “loved and lost,” the clothes have a dark and mournful, yet hauntingly beautiful quality; the subversive use of feminine shapes and fabrics bring a dainty element to the clothes that is not usually associated with the style. Milko’s stunning Perspex cuffs and crowns designer in conjunction with the collection are sharp contrasts that somehow work perfectly.

Iconic fashion designer and rock queen Pam Hogg, designs custom clothing to order. The designer AW12 collection, also presented at London Fashion Week, is quirky, futuristic and brings to mind the Continue reading

Rodarte’s Los Angeles County Museum of Art-acquired 10-piece spring/summer 2012 couture collection, which debuted last June at Florence fashion fair Pitti W, is finally scheduled to make its North American debut. LACMA will present the pieces in an exhibition titled, “Rodarte: Fra Angelico Collection,” from December 17 to February 5, 2012.

Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the California born and bred sisters behind Rodarte, found inspiration in Italian Renaissance art for the collection, specifically High Roman Baroque sculptor Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini’s “The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa,” as well as early Renaissance painter Fra Angelico’s frescoes in the monks’ cells at the Convent of San Marco. In a seemingly appropriate twist, LACMA will display the gowns against works from the same period that inspired them — including the circa 1491-95 painting by the Master of the Fiesole Epiphany, “Christ on the Cross With Saints Vincent Ferrer, John the Baptist, Mark, and Antoninus” — in the museum’s Italian Renaissance gallery. – – follow more about this

That hourglass dress, red-carpet dominance, a London Fashion Week show, a new flagship store – and the Olympics. Stella McCartney has her name all over 2012, writes Jess Cartner-Morley.

The party Stella McCartney throws every December at her Bruton Street store in central London to celebrate the switching on of her kitsch-chic Christmas windows has become a fashion insider’s highlight of the party season. It is fabulous but fun too – there are pints of Guinness as well as flutes of champagne; chocolate Santas alongside smoked salmon canapes. – – Read more:


Hall of Fame: Patricia Field

Pat FieldPatricia Field has always done things her way. With a career spanning 45 years and counting, the designer, stylist and boutique owner built her reputation by creating her own blueprint. “If you asked me who I looked up to from the beginning of my career, I would say no one,” Field said. “I didn’t see fashion that way. I felt fashion.” On the other hand, Field has clearly inspired others in the industry. “As a designer, everyone loves her because she does what designers dream of doing: putting together eccentric pieces,” said designer Christian Siriano. “Any designer would love to have Patricia pull for one of their projects because that means she thinks it’s interesting, creative, new and special.” George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik USA, said Field’s ability to stay ahead of trends puts her in a unique class. “She always has an extraordinary take on what’s happening on the street before anyone else in fashion,” he said. “She embraces young ideas and young people in a way that very few people in fashion do.” – – Read more
