heliot emil SS20 “torqued ellipse”

ok my obsession with heliot emil is showing no signs of slowing up anytime soon // im still drooling over their looks from the spring summer show in paris last month //

i know i write about them every season but vitor and julius juul continue to experiment so gracefully with tech and fashion // alyx fans will say theyre biting but i honestly think theyre doing something different //

the collection, named and inspired by serra’s sculpture series was a virtual presentation and you can still catch the full show here… http://ss20.heliotemil.com/

technical layers and clever cutaways in shades of industrial monochromes // absolutely love! // the tailoring too is on point // also those metalic pants in looks 2 && 29 are set to be big hype come their release in jan //

riri launches FENTY

it was only a matter of time // rihanna pairs up with LVMH to launch fashion brand FENTY // after a successful collab with the likes of puma its nice to see Ri launch her own label on the more luxury end of the spectrum //

needless to say she’s a long-time style icon of mine //

taking a look at the first release lookbook for FENTY it’s plain to see many of what have come to be rihannas trademark styles // oversized tailoring && cinched waists with extra accessories that pop in simple colours //

my actual favourite looks are below // i particularly like the cohesion to the drop and the fact that she hasnt overdone the drop in terms of number of pieces //

the collection is already live online with pop up stores in Paris and one to come in NY in late June // no doubt other major cities around the world will get similar privilege //

it really is new territory for the badgirl entrepreneur and as the first woman of colour to run design for a fashion house at LVMH a historic achievement //

cant wait to see what else riri and FENTY will have in store for us ! //
