Walter van Beirendonck ss 2015 collection, entitled 'WHAMBAM' was inspired by the lack of privacy we are having in this fast-moving society and the contradiction between paradise and the dark side of the world.

Emerging Milan based label Koonhor, showed fall/winter 2014 collection in New York this afternoon to a full house at the Hudson Hotel.
Staying true to the brands conceptual impetus, impeccably tailored looks reflected exquisitely the elemental beauties inherent to masculine and feminine energies. Koonhor designers, Koon Lim and Catrine Thé, focus this irrefutable polarity into a sophisticated balance with their technical virtuosity, creating looks that transverse and evolve androgyny in women’s RTW.

This paradox supports the Koonhor woman in her “effort to re-define change for the modern woman”,
The beautiful movement of drop waisted shirtdresses with wide hems was entrancing.
Chic slouchy belted trousers were shown in denim and loden green.
Floral patterned organza expertly constructed added a more feminine feel to the over all austere collection.

worked with the revered textile houses of France and Italy to conjure
notions of beauty, and render absolute newness by treating, adding
to and re-thinking the fabric. To the naked and unlearned eye, the
results are alien, and bring to life an illuminated, one-of-a-kind
item is multi-dimensional and unerringly feminine in attitude – and yet
there is strength of character to the woman who will wear the
collection. She has a sense of self, as much as she admires and
preserves what is precious.
