The Diesel Black Gold SS 2016 fashion show took place in a high sealed but run down and rough location in the financial district of New York. The creative director Andreas Melbostad looks at men’s iconic pieces to re-think and re-create a strong women’s wardrobe.
On my first night at New York Fashion Week SS16, I went for the 10th anniversary show of Alexander Wang. It made me think about the spirit,style and all the new brands New York Fashion Week have introduced us to over the last decade.
To me the New York spirit and style is well respected in the Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
Clean with good details, sporty but chic. A sophisticated version at Boss and Calvin Klein, more art and craft at Proenza Schouler, Edun and VictoriaBeckham, and the cool translation at Phillip Lim and Diesel Black Gold.
A couple of years ago, we did a big feature with Tommy Hilfiger and the iconic American impressed us with his presence and joy during our interview. The designer and business man has always been known for his creativity when it comes to events and campaigns and now, he’s tapped tennis ace Rafael Nadal as the face for the Tommy Hilfiger Underwear, Tommy Hilfiger Tailored and the new TH Bold scent. During a tennis match in New York, Nadal played top models like Chanel Iman and Constance Jablonski and during the almost strip poker-ish event, the new Hilfiger Underwear was slowly revealed – genious! We can’t wait to see it up close.
We’ve been fans of & Other Stories since we interviewed them for DANSK #32. The Swedish brand has worked with diversity in terms of ethnicity, body image, and age in previous campaigns, but now they’re doing something extremely cool – and something that fits perfectly with our last issue, called Agender? & Other Stories puts transgenders in focus with a campaign video and a series of portraits – entitled “The Gaze & Other Stories”, the campaign is radical in that it is created by five transgenders.
