H&M Design Award

After being on the road the whole week for shows in Stockholm and Copenhagen, I’m finally back in a much warmer London with lots of impressions in my luggage(s), so please forgive me for the lack of updates on this space, but it will now turn for sure.

Amongst the shows I attended in (freezing cold!) Stockholm was the H&M global Design Award where the crowned winner turned out to be Eddy Anemian. The French designer who studies at La Cambre in Brussels, presented his 4′th year collection, inspired by Tilda Swinton in the movie I Am Love (Love!) and the French painter Ingres. Except from receiving a cash prize of 50,000 euros, H&M will develop pieces from the collection to be sold at selected H&M stores this fall.

Jil Sander Fall 2011

Raf Simons presented his fall collection for Jil Sander in Milan today and not very surprisingly I like it even though I was much more excited about their spring collection. Many black looks and darker colors, clean cut as usual and the knitwear and patterns give me alpine vibes. Some of the looks reminds me of the outfits Tilda Swinton wears in the beautiful movie I Am Love. Notice the blue/green eyeshadow, nice!
