Anna Quan Resort 2016 – that French cuff shirt and other classics reimagined What makes a shirt a shirt, or a jacket a jacket? Thus yours truly found her mind wondering, while shuffling through the runway images I’d taken at Anna Quan’s showing at this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. The collection was characterised by its ritual deconstruction of traditional clothing archetypes. Her classic french cuff shirt from resort 2015 (which had already garnered viral popularity) was redesigned in a backless incarnation; a deceivingly simple halter dress was tailored as though it were a jacket, and with side seams ingeniously eliminated to highlight the cord ribbon and o-ring closure, the latter being an unifying element of the collection. The result was something that is in that tantalising entr’acte of being at once comfortingly familiar but unsettlingly novel. This, far from being a perversion of clothes making traditions, is perhaps the most transparent demonstration of a designer’s mastery of tailoring methods. ‘For me, it’s about utilising the traditional way of constructing something to build a story,’ designer, Anna Hoang commented, in her characteristically erudite manner (she is, after all, a member of our legal fraternity). ‘The hardest thing is having a conceptual […]

I can count on Sydney for many things; a beautiful sunset photo from the Bondi Beach that will cheer me up no matter what, lots of beautiful people living there (like my friend Ilkin, seen above glowing in white), a sense of belonging even though I’ve never been to Australia once and of course, a fool-proof street style scene during fashion weeks. This was the first time there was a fashion week for Resort collections anywhere in the world and even though I’m not %100 sure about this, I’m thinking it’s because of the season clash between continents. Whatevs, mates from Sydney don’t care about seasons or weather, they provide year round inspiration and here are my favorites. image sources: we the people, vogue fr, vogue us, w magazine, harper’s bazaar

One of the absolute best things about being a fashion blogger (besides having an excellent excuse to buy that 78th pair of sneakers or that same pant with a slightly different pleat) is being able to wear the designs of brands you’ve long been lusting after but can’t find everywhere because they are emerging or exclusive brands. Thanks to BYOND, an online luxury fashion store based in London offering a range of upper emerging designer brands, I could walk, run, swivel, twirl and do all those fashion shooting clichés in my favorite Altewai Saome jumpsuit from S/S 2016 collection with such joie de vivre because just look at how beautiful it is. Even a boy like me can’t resist its charm. BYOND is an online platform dedicated to connecting talented designers with smart fashion lovers who are eager to find unique sophisticated clothing in line with their modern lifestyle so it’s no surprise we found and ran towards each other with arms wide open. Besides Altewai Saome, their designer selection includes brands like Bedouin, Cristina …

TEL AVIV – With one foot in Paris, the city of light and fashion, and the other in Tel Aviv, both being home for me, I’ve been influenced through different visions of the same culture.
