embellished sheer bodysuits + white/cement looks @ JOAO PIMENTA SS 2012

From demure (AW 2011) to camp, Joao Pimenta‘s SS 2012 collection is fun and rather daring as opposed to the sombre and solemn looks of his AW collection – as one would expect from a winter collection. Stripped of the pinafore dresses, out comes the embellished sheer bodysuits.

The collection also consists of all-white/cement looks (as well as some colourful and vibrant outfits), featuring knee-length culottes, long sleeveless tops, hybrid skirt/trousers and super wide-legged trousers.

menswear collection based on blindness by KEIKO KIDA

This collection got my attention, not because of the men in skirts but the actual idea of it. Keiko Kida, an MA graduate from London College of Fashion created a menswear collection based on blindness. Not only it is conceptual but the pieces are also wearable and stylish. It includes wide-legged trousers, cropped jacket, asymmetrical coat with a funnel sleeve and an interesting pair of hybrid shoes.

Warrior Coat by Konrad Parol via notjustalabel.com. I particularly love the added hood/cap.



I recently came across Seoirse Kavana‘s (great name) menswear collection titled ‘Urban Survival’ at Not Just A Label. The use of ‘weather proof’ fabrics, alongside ‘delicate knitwear’ and chiffon, is very interesting. Featuring creative cuts and intricate knit detailing, the collection was inspired by horror and post-apocalyptic movies.

I recently found Joao Pimenta’s work on Not Just A Label and was excited by his winter collection. A feminine menswear collection, which has obvious references to the traditional religious habit worn by nuns. It includes pinafore dresses, lace tops and pleated maxi skirts in sombre tones.
