Aptform - FW08/09 Comments | Sep 16 2008

AptForm

AptForm

Michail Gkinis, the designer behind Aptform has a very simple concept which draws influence for his line from Greece and Tokyo.

AptForm Concept Image

Taken from his Concept section of the Aptform website:

Michail Gkinis is making meaningful clothes always progressing the Raison d’Etre into the wearers mind. The message he portrays is “form follows function” by The Bauhaus Art Movement. His admiration is to implement it not only in clothing but as a purpose of life. Hacing this in mind he is applying the amalgamation of industrian / nature / human values / the space within as the fundamental inspirational engine in order to epress his awareness about the modern social enviroment and in result is using clothing as a medium to communicate with the rest of humanity.

Aptform’s FW line is a excellent balance between well fitted casual wear meshed with oversized clean lines peices making the line wearable for most occations.

Make sure to check the Aptform site for the rest of Gkinis’s FW08/09 line and the soon to come SS09 line.

APRIL77 FW/08/09 Comments | Jul 25 2008

April77April77April77April77 is a label from France with their FW/08/09 collection being based around Rock n Roll but going deeper being influenced by the 80/90’s non Londoners UK population. Large over sized knight wear straight skinny slacks and denim. It’s great seeing what is a very French/Parisian label and style incorporate with a UK influence. The colors consist of monochromatic grays, blacks and blues. A good touch is the acid wash…? Is this even considered acid wash when its this extreme? But anyways the bleached denim are a great addition to the collection. April77 is available at Carte Blanche in Toronto and Seven NYC.

Komakino Design Comments | Jul 23 2008

SS08 

Komakino

FW08/09

Komakino

Komakino 

I am appreciating this futuristic designs from London UK’s label Kamakino Design mash up which seems to have taken inspiration from 50’s/60’s contemporary design of the future and the modern off beat oversized trend currently happening.Could the name be influenced by the Joy Devision song Kamakin? I don’t know… just a thought. With this possibility it makes a bit more sense and its possible to see kinda a post-punk UKish influence in the designs.

Take note Komakino Design should not be mistaken for Komakino Gorilla Store out of Vancouver Canada->Post to follow.

QED Comments | Jun 21 2008

QEDQuod Erat Demonstrandum, shotened to QED, is a Berlin based fashion label, founded by Julia Boge, Simona Gabrieli and Jasmin Moallim in 2006. During their studies at fashion school, the three discovered their common love for the colour black, which kick-started their subsequent collaboration, that has culminated in the debut collection “Jerry Lewis vs. Gari Kasparov” for fall/winter 06/07. A mixture between minimalism and playfulness., the garments adhere to the rules of classical menswear tailoring but mix up the uniformity with playful details.  In 2007 at the Beck’s Fashion Experience QED was selected as the only menswear collection on show in a field of designers set to represent the best of young German design talent.  QED_1QED_2QED_3 Personally I enjoy QED’s simplicity of the garments yet attention to detail with fit and unique detailing on each piece.
