RE Photo Inspo of the week!

Image

Landed and settled back in New York for fashion week we let ourselves look for
different influences this time around. I have always been a great fan of Nick Knight and his art. Recently he released a photo selection with a variety of designers participating in a
shoot for V magazine.
While we work on our reports I wanted to share some of my favourite shots from the shoot here in at Milk studios in LA.148453_960n 148455_960n 148446_960n 148448_960n 148447_960n 148443_960n 148442_960n 148450_960n 148454_960n 148451_960n

Summer Inspiration 2015

Image

Happy Tuesday beautiful people! One of the superpowers of being based in Los Angeles is the absolutely gorgeous weather, temperature and closeness to miles of beautiful beaches. This weekend we took to the sand and welcomed the summer with bubbles and SPF 30 to start the new season with a gentle tan. While on the beach, scanning the latest Vogue UK editorials we came across some lush inspiration from Alexander Wangs muse and German model Anna Ewers (Vogue DE cover March 2015). The spread perfectly mirrored our feeling for beach fashion this summer giving life to blue ocean backdrops, salty hair and airy white blouses with 70s attic finds like crochet shorts and off the shoulder crop tops in rust, off-white and black lycra swimwear.

What we love about this look is the absolute ease at which you can pull it together. Who doesnt have a pair of black bikini bottoms and a white shirt? Then all you need is your farmers market tote, last years summer sandals (yes! to worn in already) and the ocean will do the rest for tan and salty hair. It will be a beautiful summer guys!

Love, RE x

INSPIRATIONAL SPRING TRENDS SS15

Image

We have just entered the new year and we are finally starting to see a new vision for spring  2015. There will always be a few obvious themes for the spring season such as pastels florals and most likely flowy fabrics and whites, but this time we would like to focus on those trends that are more likely to become hot further ahead in time (maybe even SS16).
I have always been a fan of a futuristic and very innovative look and for this spring we are  seeing a very interesting iridescent and transperant element on the runway, in the accessory department and in jewelry.
The thought of wearing a plastic coat or a corset for a night out might not sound so appealing, although I believe that this trend will become a great outlet for us “taste makers” to express ourselves and have fun with eccentric fashion!

BERLIN SS15′ FASHION WEEK FOCUS

Image

During Berlin fashion week a lot more goes on than just the runway shows.
The international trade show ‘Bread & Butter‘ are showcasing their annual trade fair for street and urban wear, the plus-size fashion fair ‘curvy is sexy’ as well as the ‘PREMIUM‘ and ‘SHOW&ORDER‘ ordering platforms are all taking place along with Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

Jil Sander, Hugo Boss, Escada and Phillip Plein are some of the leading international brands from the German market, however there are some well established designers
that are climbing the expansion ladder right now!

Meet Michael Sontag, a young aspiring designer who took a break from last FW is back with a signature look of flowy kaftans and draped dresses along with some oversized knits and statement details.
This time the models were donning soaked hair and flip flops when coming down the runway drenched in a yellow dramatic light that gave the impression of a late summer sun setting.

Michaels strongest side is how he works with silk and he has created a name for him self based on those creations alone.
He likes to describe his collections as his ‘work’ rather than collections with contrasts between the seasons and he also doesn’t like to abide by trends and let forecasts determine his creations. He believes the process is the most important part of creating and to be able to express himself, which is also the reason he became a designer in the first place.
