Ana Locking closes the humanitarian trilogy with “The Dreamer” collection that conveys the message of “The power to the dreamer”. A sober palette of colours where the nude, camel, red and black were combined with a great wealth and variety of materials and textures.
Miguel Marinero has demonstrated perfect and refined patterns, revolving around the image of the 1980s and combining it in an initially impossible way with the sixteenth-century Spain. The mixture of garments of different styles and the perfect combination of materials have created modernity and sensuality from memories of the past.
Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada
Summer has ended but the fun continued when Ágatha Ruiz transformed her world into a collection of candy-inspired garments that wrap the body in the shape of cupcakes, doughnuts, pies, lollipops, gift boxes and everything you can find at a great party for a parade of true delights and treats.
The “Adam and Eve in Paradise” collection by Francis Montesinos is a call to nature and a tribute to the principality of Asturias – its places, landscapes and countryfolk. It takes a giddy leap into the future while displaying exuberance, character and nature.
If what drives a product towards extravagance and opulence is pure talent and multitude of hard work, then these two fashion artists seem to have what it takes to do just that. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren recently unveiled the world-premiere exhibition of their latest fashion artwork title Viktor & Rolf : Fashion Artists at NGV International Melbourne.
如果驱使一项产品迈向富丽奢华境地是纯粹的天赋和辛勤工作，那么Viktor Horsting和Rolf Snoeren这两名时尚设计师似乎就是当仁不让。他们最近也在为主题Viktor & Rolf时尚艺术家在墨尔本维多利亚国家美术馆国际馆(NGVInternational)的世界首次展览会揭开序幕，展示最新时尚作品。
Driving the haute couture designs from Dutch fashion house, these artists present some of the most flamboyantly sculptured creation inspired by Picasso and cubism. Featuring over 40 intricate and hand-crafted haute couture garments, the premiere will include exhibit from a dress made from a silk bedspread, to gowns made from gold-gilded picture frames.
The exhibit will highlight intricate floral dresses with skirts spanning nearly two meters inspired by the much admired Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. You will definitely not miss the one of its kind dress fixed with nearly 250 bows Princess Mabel of the Netherland’s royal wedding dress. Focusing the theme on the Old Master paintings, the event will also include masterly designs made from gold-framed of Classic paintings. What may be a quirky idea, instead of real life-sized models, there will also be Dutch porcelain dolls dressed in miniature couture on display.

Cartier Mansion, the iconic flagship store located on the Fifth Avenue and 52nd Street in New York, is one exquisite piece of real estate bought by Pierre Cartier. After almost a century, this building is about to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2017. As homage to the founding legends of the Mansion, Cartier has recently designed a necklace of natural pearls to celebrate the occasion.
Thierry Despont, the lead architect who led the two and a half-year long historic renovation, infuses seamlessly the grand flair of the past with contemporary work to restore it to its full glory. The pristine rooms that houses Cartier’s jewelry are covered with richly-coloured walls, embroidered fabrics and herringbone wood floors. The new boutique has now expanded from 8,600 square feet on two floors to 44,100 square feet on four floors.
