COMPLEMENTAIR - A/W 2017-18

COMPLEMENTAIR is a young brand that was founded in Shenzhen, China in 2016. Young or not, they have a lot of potential and creative ideas to share. COMPLEMENTAIR is an ideologically visual art-based brand combined with alternative luxury concept, featuring neutrality, sexual attraction, and individuation. The brand prolongs the famed structuralism designing style, fusing utter masculine and utter feminine elements to blur the boundaries between man and woman in order to focus on the original relations between clothing and human body. Mixing high fashion and street fashion, function and decoration so as to break through the traditional clothing design, it reshapes the complete simple designing style of being white or black.

A New Cross - Moving forward to the start

Colombian brand A New Cross recently had their first runway show. "Moving Forward to the Start" was presented in Bcapital in Bogota, Colombia. During the show, ANC showed their timeless agender pieces that are not following global trends, but focus on the quality, the duality and versatility, as well as the originality (they have been one of my favorite for several years now).

As mentioned above, A New Cross is known for its handcrafted and luxurious work, where everything is perfectly lined and tailored, with loose and raw endings. It is a balance that A New Cross has been making, where imperfection becomes perfection itself.

For the latest collection, there is nothing much to say except to scroll down and enjoy this avant-garde perfection.

KOFTA - "Imago" S/S 2018

KOFTA is one of those names that always has a new and original story to tell, shaped in a bit different way. Each time their stories vary depending on the sphere of art and origin. However, KOFTAs alienated creations carries a great strength and represent a beauty from a different perspective.

Collection for upcoming season of Spring/Summer 2018 is in touch with nature. "Imago"  represents inner beauty, strength, and improvement in different aspects of life. But also, in accordance with the name, Imago is the last stage an insect attains during its metamorphosis. It represents growth and maturity, and also level of sensitivity. Nature does not require edging as a point of perfection.
