“The relationship between fashion and world order has always been very important. Now, in a different way – through the internet. Fashion has a huge influence on the younger generation and we take on significant responsibility with what we create”, shares the designer of the fashion house Maria Grazia Chiuri. Therefore, fashion bares the social function of educating aesthetics and establishing taste. Dior’s 2018-2019 Winter collection takes us back to the archives and revives two fundamental highlights from there – the specific patchwork and the iconic Dior Saddle Bag, created about two decades ago by John Galliano during the time he was leading the creative team at the French fashion house. Checked patterns and bright red take turns with other pieces from the puzzle in denim and silver leather. Maria’s favourite airy see-through materials are not forgotten. And the designs really seem to be the most appropriate for our everyday lives, compared to everything else that we saw in the last couple of days.
Simon Porte Jacquemus is quite serious about becoming the next huge name in fashion and he is patiently building his empire. Without a solid back in the artistic circles of Paris, he arrives from the countryside to the capital when he is 18 years old. In order to study and lay the foundation of his brand. Today, 10 years later, the front rows of his shows are the hottest place for celebrities to meet, critics worship him and eagerly follow his work. His last collection is inspired by Morocco, Simon’s hot muse. We feel it in the sizzling colours and the lightness that shines from the models. Jacquemus micro bags will definitely be among the undisputable best-sellers at the end of 2018. And the great news about the brand is the up-coming expansion with a men’s collection.
