EDUN

Love the fuzzy, cosy quality of the clothes, they look extremely wearable yet sporty and elegant.  A tricky combo to pull off, bravo.  Designer Danielle Sherman backed by LVMH and funded by Bono and Ali Hewson managed well and reminded me a little of Phoebe Philo’s Celine.

COACH

Very excited by Coach, this their first season introducing a clothing line designed beautifully by Stuart Vevers who was at LVMH’s Loewe label.  He based his thinking on true Americana, wonderfully wearable, witty, leathery and superbly cut.  Great bags and even greater boots and shoes, can’t wait.

VICTORIA BECKHAM

Lovely clean lines, elegant and modern.  Exquisite tailoring and love the chunky gold chains on the divine coats and coat dresses.  Well done team Beckham and I am thinking that our lovey friend Susanne Tide-Frater might have had a good deal to do with concept and execution.  Well done.

PRABAL GURUNG

New to me but Gurung, a Nepalese designer, first appeared in 2009 with his first runway collection.  He studied in New Dehli at the National Institute of Fashion Technology and then in NY at Parsons. Now an American citizen he is most definitely on the map.  Loved his chunky deconstructed knits over chiffon and silk skirts that showed a fair amount of leg, cute. Gorgeous colour combinations and some very clever glam tailoring. Me likey.

We’re now ready and waiting for LFW!

May we introduce Rebecca Lucraft!!

We thought that we needed to find someone truly creative and unique to add something special to our windows.

Selfridges Window – Apifera 2008

I came across the work of Rebecca Lucraft whilst doing some research and thought that she was just perfect, her background is Chelsea College of Art having studied textile design followed by mixed media textile at the Royal College of Art.

We asked Rebecca to make some masks and little skirts for our rather fabulous, part calico, part plaster cast mannequins, supplied by Universal Displays, which thankfully, she said yes to.

London Fashion Week, What Caught Our Eye!

L’Wren Scott 

We were interested to see what L’Wren Scott was up to as we loved her collection last season which we felt had really gained direction and confidence. Here are some pieces from S/S 14 which to us seems to be leaning more and more towards couture!!? Lovely…

Peter Pilotto

We also noticed that Peter Pilotto seems to fit nicely between Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane. Here are some of the looks that we picked out.

Christopher Kane 

Christopher Kane presented a huge collection with various themes running through it, here are some of the pieces that we loved, especially loving the heavy heavy shiny shiny satins this season, rich and luxurious but edgy.

Anya Hindmarch

We noticed that quite a few designers had created interesting showcases this season. We thought that Anya Hindmarch and co created a great presentation for her latest collection. Take a look!

Olympians

Posted in De Roemer, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 30, 2012 by deroemer

We have found some images, a couple of facts and some fashion to share with in the spirit of the olympics. Good Luck Team GB!!!

The Olympic RingsThe 5 olympic rings represent the 5 parts of the world which are now won over to olympism and willing to accept healthy competition!

Team GB

Controversially for the 1936 olympics Leni Riefenstahl was invited by Hitler to make the film ‘Olympia’, which was very successful and has been cited as a major influence in modern sports photography.

London Fashion Week

Natural History MuseumSadly as usual we were disappointed with the tents at the Natural History Museum.  The atmosphere is great as you walk in but the uneven grey carpet supplied for the majority of the labels showing was drab and depressing.
…………………………………
Not so for the up and coming, the new generation, sponsored by Top Shop no less.  They had a great area upstairs with a lovely even, hardboard floor smelling of newly sawn wood.   It felt fresh, light and airy. Much more appealing to the visitors and exhibitors alike.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Mary KatrantzouMary Katrantzou really stood out with her architectural jewellery screen printed onto silk shifts and I loved Mark Fast’s signature, literally, his spider like name spelt out with cotton and pins on a felt board.

Marios Schwab

Marios Schwab is another name that we keep noticing, a very talented guy.
