Kacy Hill discloses her debut song


 A song which has the dichotomy of being at once vast and wholly intimate, ‘Experience’ is one of the first tracks which Kacy made, having found herself writing music by accident. An otherworldly vocal and futuristic production is matched by a compelling visual, inspired by the intricacies of being human and our ability to think into detail and absorb meaning behind subconscious and conscious action.

Made of handcrafted fabrics, Lapidarium offers high fashion elegance, fused with sporty silhouette, unique prints and embellished pieces.

Norwegian Rain

The unlikely meeting of the Bespoke Tailor and the business graduate

Slowly and steadily, in the rainiest city of Europe - Bergen, Norway - a rain project has evolved into an award-winning designer label based on the concept of dugnad*.

"The philosophy is simple. Hard core functional and waterproof outerwear that does not compromise on stylistic preferences. The hi-tech is hidden".

In center, the duo. Bespoke tailor / designer T-Michael, known for his conceptual approach to his handcraft, and creative director Alexander Helle - a business graduate and functionalist, that founded the rain project based on flourishing collabs between local expertise from the creative scene of Bergen.

Included in the team, the graphic design studio; Anti & Grandpeople and photographer; Bent René Synnevaag. Norwegian Rain’s garments conceal some of the highest level of weather protection available.

The Arctic Coat Collection is packed with innovations. Wool shearling and wool padding for the most biting cold days.

Double Breasted - Men’s Military style inspired coat with emphasis on ceremonial duties rather than battle. Strong, bold, yet fluid and elegant. This coat empowers you against the elements in an urban setting. Stylistic man against the cold, wind and rain! NB! Now also available with the new innovative wool padding - zipped into the coat! Waterproof membrane - Heat-sealed seams - Hi-performance, Japanese fabrics - Detachable hood and storm flap - Front edge water tunnel avoiding water to pour into the garment - Cashmere lined collar - Horn buttons - Sneak peek the membrane in the back split at bottom

Raincho - Unisex Born on a napkin on a street café in Paris, upping the ante on the see-through poncho. This is a sculptural, Japanese inspired unisex garment that belts up to be feminine and quirky or left loose to bold and drapey. Meet The Raincho! Waterproof membrane - Heat-sealed seams - Hi-performance, Japanese fabrics - Front edge water tunnel avoiding water to pour into the garment - Cashmere lined flap - Horn buttons - Detachable wide belt and thinner strap

Rive Gauche - Womens Wool is by far the most hi-performance / hi-tech natural fiber available. By combining the raw wool fibers with a small percentage PLA fibers - a ‘natural polyester’ derived from corn has been created – a light weight, padded structure that normally has been reserved for artificial textiles. Maintaining the breathable and superior insulating qualities of wool, the thickness of the wadding is drastically reduced yet expanding the thermal qualities. Less is more. Thinner, yet warmer. Say bye bye to the michelin man!  Detachable Icelandic, wool shearling lined collar - 200g wool padding on inside - Waterproof membrane - Heat-sealed seams - Hi-performance, Japanese fabrics - Detachable hood and storm flap - Front edge water tunnel avoiding water to pour into the garment - Horn buttons

White Silence by Monochrome

Their latest creations are genderless, singular and timeless, coming from nowhere but made to wear anywhere and by anyone. 

Mountain expedition influenced shapes represented through the foundations of lines and details, round pockets and circular patterns with detailed piping and necklines and hoods. Winter-face hats, protective hoods, oxygen backpacks, climbing harness, gloves and hand warming muff are essentially considered to represent the mood of ‘White Silence’. The labels signature geometrical, utilitarian tailoring of garments allowed for multi-functionality and protection.

With its signature collaborative approach MONOCHROME develops imaginative ways of spawning distinctive visual forms and tangible formations applying geometrical and bespoke pattern cutting. The result is a uniquely tailored design unifying craft with functionality, counter-balanced with a keen eye for detail and quality. The asexual tone of MONOCHROME garments emanates the free and innovative vision that drives the designs.

The utilitarian aesthetic purveyed through the designs reflects the designers’ objective to create garments that are practical while also modish. Inspired by London life, MONOCHROME garments are made to function within an urban setting, exhibiting technical fabrics such as waxed cotton that is waterproof and wool that is efficient and durable. Many of the pieces mimic geometric structures allowing not only an adaptable fit but also transformation into multi-purposeful uses. All garments adorn the classical palette of black and grey exuding a minimal quality for casual wear and unisex elegance.

“Our label seeks and encourages collaboration on unique projects that combine MONOCHROME clothes and accessories with conceptual art forms. We believe the merger of our garments in a shared space and conceptual milieu allows us to further convey the limitless vision behind the brand”.

Úna Burke - The Void Between AW14

Since making her life-sized leather puppet for SHOWstudio in April 2013, Úna Burke has continued her research into human gesture and bodily movement and particularly in the art form of shadow puppetry and its various guises. So for AW14 the constructions and forms of her leather Waist Belts, Handbags, Body Accessories and Jewellery have all been inspired by the basic principles of light v’s dark, positive v’s negative, solid v’s translucent, shine v’s matt as so many of these factors come into play when considering the functioning and execution of shadow puppetry. 

Lace and mesh-like architectural systems feature heavily in this collection along with three-dimensional overlap detailing and perforated patterns. Lines vary from angular to smooth with solid panels contrasting framed areas and particular attention paid to accentuating and emphasising the incredible contours of the female form.

Colours are rich and luxurious with deep Autumnal hues and warm Winter tones of Blueberry, Merlot, Honey and Tan. Metallics once again make an appearance in this collection with Pewter and Bronze used as highlights and details. Grey and Taupe bring a sense of light to the collection used in simple clutch styles and accessible cuffs.  Silhouettes are relaxed yet body-conscious and as always, traditional leatherworking techniques have been used throughout, achieving Úna’s signature intricacies of construction and detailing while maintaining a fine luxury quality and finish.

Among Úna’s clients and collaborators are Daphne Guinness, Phillip Lim, Jennifer Lawrence, The Hunger Games, Lady Gaga, The Simone Handbag Museum, Christina Aguilera, National Museum of Ireland, Ridley Scott Productions, Rihanna, 2012 Olympics, Madonna, i-D, Joyce Boutique, Dazed and Confused, Crafts Council of Ireland, Ozzy Osbourne, Dawn Richard, On Pedder, Heidi Klum, Panos Yiapanis, Elva, Nicki Minaj, Doda, Mert and Marcus, Charlene Muhlach, Unconditional, Haifa Wehbe, Judith Clarke, Anna Trevelyan, JLS, Robbie Spencer, LOVE magazine, Vogue Homme and SHOWstudio.

10. Is What It Is


PROTØ3DYPE is the 2015 autumn/winter collection from Eugenialejos and is inspired by the architecture of the atoms particularly in the biotechnology areas and its evocative relation with the nature. Delicate games dominate the styles in clothes monochrome, black and white. Layers of silk organza, powder of polyamide and holographic leather are combined in a single look to recreate the game of three-dimensional reality. The collection utilisers the technology of the future all in one collection: with high resolution print, luxury cut leather, 3D printed pieces and holographic fabrics. Protø3dype is a collection remarkable for its innovative material and its future line. Another way to travel the { E U G E N I A L E J O S } universe is taking a trip inside one’s mind. It is all about blurring the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction, or seeing and experiencing many parallel realities in one.
