Summer has officially turned into fall but I’m still in the reminiscence events from earlier this year. In April I was invited to Italy, to visit the studio of Barbara Bologna, the artist behind the clothing brand Area di Barbara Bologna. I spent a long weekend talking about and stalking her design process and designs, especially her F/W12 collection. She also showed me the beautiful Tuscan countryside where she resides; right where the sea and mountains meet. I think I left a huge piece of my heart to Italy: To its friendly people, great food and breathtaking landscape. Plenty of reasons why I must visit this magical place again.

Greetings from Paris! During the past weekend I attended once again men’s fashion week for S/S13 and had a great time visiting shows and showrooms, which from more picture material to come very soon on Flux. But before all that, here is one little after show action walking back from the JuunJ. presentation which was held at the garden of Galerie de Minéralogie.

Last summer I had the privilege of visiting the OBSCUR showroom in Paris and see what the OBSCUR S/S12 looked like. This beautifully crafted collection featured light weight basics made of Japanese organic cotton, rustic looking Japanese linen jackets, lots of typical to OBSCUR leather goods, such as jackets with a new moldable collar and an oversize zippered bag. The designer Richard Söderberg‘s idea was to make the garments like an armor, protecting their wearer but still keep them wearable. Having tried on the garments myself, I think he succeeded spot on. OBSCUR S/S12 will become available early next year.
