MIRA MIKATI

MIRA MIKATI

There are adventure travelers, and then there’s Mira Mikati. An accomplished surfer, the creative director of Ç ×Façonnable is fresh off her first kite-surfing vacation. Looking tanned and relaxed in her Paris showroom, Mikati says that someday she’s going to do something she’s always dreamed of: show up at the airport with a mix of stuff in her suitcase, then grab a ticket for wherever the next flight on the departure board might take her. That “permanent vacation” mind-set comes through in a Fall ’14 collection filled with easy-to-layer pieces that pick up on Ç ×Façonnable’s sunny Riviera spirit, then touch down in Tokyo with kimono-inspired floral-print pajama suits in orange and green.
Speaking of pajamas, meet the “smyjama,” a smoking/pajama hybrid designed to travel from day to night—a useful quality whether or not you’re hopping time zones. Variations range from a sharply tailored white jacket with flocked velvet tree branches reaching down from one shoulder to a fluid pajama-cut velvet number in deep gray-blue. Seasonless basics include the brand’s signature scuba tops, felted wool tees, and a white perfecto with knit sleeves that would be right at home anywhere.
Garance Doré-lensed lookbook photos of model-writer-mother Candela Novembre, which debut exclusively here, capture the Fall range’s spirit.

LE MONT SAINT MICHEL

LE MONT SAINT MICHEL

The history of clothing brand Le Mont St Michel begins in Normandy in 1913 with quality work wear clothing. When Alexandre Milan brings the company back to life one hundred years later, he brings to ithis own family tradition from the Tricotages de l’Aa. It’s decided: knitwear will be the cornerstone of the collections.

The knowledge and permanence are there, all that’s left to do is to introduce a more contemporary vibe that will make of it a fashionable label as well as a neo-traditional brand. The knowledge brought from a long history of knitwear allows the brand to transgress classical norms.

Bordering between France and England, we dig into the B.C.B.G. inspirations while mixing it with a preppy feel; a sort intentionally off-balanced look emerges. For us, tradition is never a serious matter, we spice it up with new elements all the while never compromising style.

When it comes to knits, it’s a profession that demands self-commitment, all too often neglected by ready-to-wear, and it was essential for us to help knits regain their nobility. Knitwear has no secrets for us: millimeter basics, forgotten stitches, sophisticated Jacquard, and carefully selected materials are a strict business for us.

Colors are an important preoccupation for us as well, no all-black-all-grey in our collections but personalized harmonies that are rich in subtle tones.

For Le Mont St Michel, details are not such. Meticulous care is brought to the choices in buttons, to finishing touches, and linings. When it comes to the labeling of our products, it’s a story all of it’s own. Here we are rewriting our own definition of the logo and traditional labels to turn the process into a creative and graphical one.
The collection naturally articulates itself around our revisited authentic staples, our reading of the season and a chic night owl section.

The charm of Le Mont St Michel girls it’s about being hot, pretty or chic all at once. The brand’s man is active and shares his taste for quality, classics and a little discrepancy in his clothing. They are the demonstration that with Le Mont St Michel being neo-traditional is cultivating one’s style with an entirely French singularity.

We are committed to our patrimony and guarantee a significant part of our collection is still made in France.

CÔME

CÔME

Côme was created by siblings Clémence and Matthieu Dru in 2014. It all started with the idea of combining an artistic sensibility with a pragmatic spirit. Everything in Côme is a reflexion of the complementary opposition between the two designers. Inspired by the mixed Greek name Kosmos, Côme represents both the « universe » and « harmony » and by extension all that can balance and connect elements between themselves.This dualism is then found in the products throughout the collections: pieces are reversible, two-colored and perfectly symmetric. All the creations are a result of a process : everything is split and reunited again, different fabrics are mixed together and patterns are overlapped. The duo produces clothing loyal to their image: androgynous femininity, modern classicism, graphic flexibility and careless sophistication. Côme collaborates with European suppliers and manufacturers who meet the specific expectations the brand has concerning irreproachable quality. The collection are thought and produced between Paris, France and Porto, Portugal in carefully chosen small ateliers and dressmaking factories respecting a traditional know-how. Côme also develops ethical and solidarity projects by working in partnership with local associations on artistic projects that embody the universe of the brand.

When art meets fashion.
Whilst searching for a fresh alternative to traditional gallery canvases, artist Marguerite Bartherotte turned her hands to fashion.Reworking t-shirt & shirts into hand painted work of art. G.KERO is the result of Marguerite Bartherotte's vision to transform high quality fabrics into technicoloured statement pieces. A graduate of Belgium’s highly select school of art and design, La Cambre, Marguerite Bartherotte, aka G.KERO, came to fashion through her painting. She uses t-shirts as her canvas. The style is raw-edged. The design is minimalist but features extreme attention to detail. The fabric is a high-quality cotton woven in the best mills in Portugal.
 Original creations that blur the borders between art and fashion, G.KERO t-shirts are nothing short of unique works of art.Relaxed yet sophisticated, they can be worn either casually or dressed up.
 
An artist and a fashion designer
 The artist has become bolder with each new creation and is now designing whole collections of tank tops, tunics, shirts, sweatshirts and scarves. A great deal of attention is paid to the fabric and the cut, so that the motif forms an integral part of a unique fashion piece and is not just a print on a fashionable item of clothing."The t-shirt is such a prosaic and everyday piece of clothing that it no longer seems possible to breathe any freshness into it at all. Those who wear G.KERO tees would strongly disagree. Marguerite Bartherotte, the artist, never ceases to find inspiration for new motifs full of fantasy, humour and romance. Instead of canvas or paper, artist Marguerite Bartherotte does her painting on t-shirts, which are now worn all over the world.

Simeon Farrar

Simeon Farrar

For this season’s Spring/Summer collection Simeon Farrar goes POP!
Pop Art and the artists that created this movement like Jeff Koons, Frank Stella, Peter Blake, Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg are the starting points for this collection with subtle elements of their work being reworked into the style and vibrancy of the Simeon Farrar look. Jeff Koons’ balloon dogs line up in regimented obedience and get smeared with neon paint while multi-colour badges litter the front of t-shirts in response to Peter Blake’s ‘Self-Portrait With Badges’. Frank Stellas’ geometric vision appears as washed out box graphics on silk dresses while violent paint strokes obliterate the collection with the force of the Abstract Expressionists that paved the way for Pop Art.
Youth and pop culture pioneers like Jack Kerouac and his Beat Generation are honoured here with pages from ‘On The Road’ being screen printed across much of the collection forming arbitrary news print surfaces for the paint to dance across.  More recent pop cultural phenomena are also represented. There is a small collection of t-shirts featuring huge hand painted emojis from smiley faces to crying cats.
The faded, washed out colours that defined the art of the 1950’s and 1960’s forms the basis for this collections’ pallet. Pastel neons mix with murky greys and sit in stark contrast with harsh and crisp black and white.  Flowing jersey maxi dresses mix with delicate summer dresses, bold 80’s cut off crop tops and print-heavy sweat pants. The bag collection features futuristic PVC clutch bags and hand painted, rainbow-dripped beach bags.
You’re in for a treat!!

Made Gold

Made Gold

Marta Goldschmied – daughter of famed denim pioneer Adriano Goldschmied – has partnered with Shane Markland to develop a new women’s wear label: MADE GOLD. MADE GOLD will launch its first collection for the Spring/Summer 2015 season, featuring premium denim with innovative fits and exclusive washes, along with outerwear, t-shirts, leather, and a directional new category of Indigo Activewear.
MADE GOLD lies at the intersection of emerging fashion and activewear, with an exclusively engineered new denim fabrication that incorporates a unique Nylon-blend indigo fabric. This exclusive fabrication is the hallmark of the MADE GOLD Indigo Activewear category, offering the same performance characteristics of traditional activewear but with the look and feel of conventional denim. Initially, the MADE GOLD Indigo Activewear category will consist of two styles of leggings, shorts, sports bra tops, a pullover and a sweatshirt.
After settling in Los Angeles with her family, Italian-born Marta Goldschmied immersed herself in fashion and west coast culture. The collision of high fashion, streetwear and the omnipresent entertainment industry all contributed to the design aesthetic of the MADE GOLD collection. MADE GOLD is marked by its roots in premium denim and inspired, in particular by the explosion of nineties grunge rock.
Shane Markland brings his aptitude for building iconic denim brands including Goldsign and Current/Elliot to MADE GOLD and is spearheading the business development and sales strategy for the brand.
Marta has also enlisted her sister Glenda Goldschmied, a graduate of London’s Central Saint Martin’s, to bring a fresh perspective to the MADE GOLD line. Glenda will help collaborate on branding, packaging and the overall visual concept of MADE GOLD. In addition to the new Indigo Activewear category, MADE GOLD will continue developing traditional denim, utilizing fabrics from both Japan and Italy.

Courtshop

Courtshop

Nicole Tondre and Lisa Fuller of Courtshop definitely embody their brand: unpretentious and totally cool, which can be a tough combo to find in downtown Manhattan. They opened the doors of their Nolita boutique in 2008 and it quickly became a favorite destination for hip girls looking for understated wardrobe staples at reasonable prices. The one thing that they felt was missing was great denim that fit the same bill, so they launched their own in-house line in 2011. Courtshop denim specializes in clean, simple jeans in classic washes that have an emphasis on great fit, specifically higher waisted styles. Nothing the girls do is focused on branding or fads, and you won’t hear them wax philosophical about collection inspirations. Instead they talk constantly about their girls, meaning the loyal shoppers who dictate what designs they come up with next.

Rag and Bone Jeans

Rag and Bone Jeans

Rag & Bone was born of the shared frustrations of Marcus Wainwright and David Neville not being able to buy the jeans they wanted. Founded in 2002, rag & bone has one very clear vision in mind: to make clothes they and their friends would love to wear everyday. With no formal fashion training, rag & bone set about learning how to make jeans. They believe that denim represents the history, authenticity and fundamentals of classic work wear that they would strive to reflect in their design.

Beginning in Kentucky, they started to work with craftsmen, who also taught them the importance of quality, craftsmanship and attention to details. These principles soon became the keystones of the rag & bone philosophy, the definition of what clothing can and should be. With these principles in mind, rag & bone chose to center all of their manufacturing in U.S. factories that still sew clothes the same way they did 50 years ago.
