'Fashioned From Nature' at the V&A explores the relationship between fashion and the environment, from the aesthetic influence of nature on fashion designers, to the impact of the textile industry on the natural world. The result is a sweeping survey of the industry’s relationship with nature over the past 400 years, exploring both our fascination with and exploitation of animals, birds, plants and natural resources.
After five years of showing his presentations in Paris, English luxury footwear designer Nicholas Kirkwood is moving his seasonal collections for his namesake brand to the London Fashion Week schedule. The label will present its debut immersive and experiential runway collection in September.
The collection's aesthetic was inspired by the home of 19th-century Swedish artists Karin and Carl Larsson, with its green walls and ceilings, red accented furniture and abundance of botany, both real and illustrated. H&M's design team interpreted this artists' paradise to create a line bursting with intricate patterns and fabrications, hyper feminine shapes, and romantic finishes.
After a nine-year long legal battle over the Guess logo and diamond pattern, which Gucci alleges are direct copies of its trademark, the two companies said they had reached an agreement which will result in the conclusion of all pending IP litigations and trademark office matters worldwide.
The word on the street is that Saint Laurent’s Anthony Vaccarello is going to show in New York on June 6, a week where international names are already gathering in the city thanks to the CFDA Awards, which will be held on June 4.
