Hello Tokyo FW: Factotum A/W 14/15

factotum01

Just in from Tokyo Fashion Week: Factotum FALL 2014! This is definitely my

first post from Tokyo Fashion Week, but if wonderful garments like these keeps walking

down the runway, it most def. won’t be the last.

Factotum pretty much has the student ‘day to day’ esthetic,so it’s wonderful to

see something on the runway that you as a student really can relate to.

WWD writes:
‘His women and men emerged wearing pajama looks, with the sleepwear theme reapprearing in the denim finale. The rest of the show had an arty, scholarly vibe with nubby sweaters, varsity jackets, corduroy blazers and toggle coats. Accessories like berets, backpacks and vintage cameras added an exchange student flair.’

Great Style #1


 
 
 
 
 
From time to time I will make a ‘Great Style’ post featuring my favourite street-styles of the moment. Winter is soon to become spring, so here is a mix of great winter and summer-styles, at any age. All photos taken from pinterest.

NYFW Favourite

Over the years, I have become more and more fan of Lacoste. Great and simple design combined with a beautiful color-scheme seems to be a style-winner. The top to toe color-dressing seems to be a great way of power dressing, and the brand did not disappoint at New York Fashion Week this week.

Fashion Favourite

I made a post on my favourites from ‘Men’s Fashion Weeks’ a few weeks ago (which you can see here), but my absolute favourite show was the Dolce & Gabbana-show in Italy so I figured it needed it’s very own post.

The dream team showed their Fall/Winter 2014 collection in Milan last month. The big inspirations for this collection were The Norman Kings Ruggero I, Ruggero II, William I, William II, Tancredi, Henry VI, Federico II and Manfredi. Dolce & Gabbana also took big inspiration from architecture by Norman Sicily which can be found in Palermo in the Norman Building and the Cathedral and the Church of the Martorana.

Fit for a King. I love the details of the print and the flashy diamond gloves.

Wearing architecture. The perfect statement suit.

In these Netflix-times, I love how much of the collection reminds me of ‘Game of Thrones’.

I adore the contrast of the shoes and the rest of the outfit.

Lounge wear.

Again, the detailing!

Dolce and Gabanna does it again for me, and I am always very excited to see their shows. While many designers shows off subtle inspirations, Domenico and Stefano always takes it to another level, which we very much need, especially in men’s fashion, to rebel against the classic looks we see season after season.
