SEAN SUEN SS17 MEN’S WEAR

孫小峰原本是一個平面設計師,成立品牌,除了是不習慣刻板的工作,也是因為對時裝的熱情。這種由零到倫敦走秀的故事實在勵志!我想就是這股熱血讓他往往能在傳統的造型上找到能夠創新的地方吧!例如今季一件純白色的西裝外套,罕有地在手臂和腰部位置加上褶位。這種通常出現在女裝的小細節可用作於修腰之用,而在男裝西裝出現時,更有多一個裝飾的用途。另外我有留意到一件皮衣外套沒有用上傳統的皮衣領口,反而用上西裝領口,這樣皮褸造型不會太過Punk,反而多一份成熟穩重的感覺。另外他還有兩件印上北京字眼的T-shirt,在這個世代做時裝,一件百搭的T-shirt可以直接成為王牌產品,比起做10套西裝成本效益更要好。這個設計也是一個明智之舉。

JUNWEI LIN SS17 MEN’S WEAR

小屁孩!由Junwei Lin的Lookbook造型,我得出了這個總結。這並非在批評她的設計,我更想指出「小屁孩」並不是如此負面的一個形象。在時尚圈子中我認識不少這類型的人,他們很直接、忠於自己、有自己一套的生活和追求。他們勇於嘗試,有強勁的親和力,透過溝通暗地讓自己更加進步。他們表面看起來雜亂無章,但實際上有着堅穩的知識背景和想法。而這一個性格特質,我正好在Junwei Lin的系列上也找得到。林君葦的作品看似瘋狂又古怪,但實際上這系列的男裝用上不少傳統男裝板型和布料,例如幼間西裝布和格仔西裝布。又例如傳統的西裝版型直接剪開了一半變成背心上衣。她將傳統的男裝分解得支離破碎,卻成功建造出無規限、忠於自己的系列,讓傳統的男裝工藝不再那麼沉悶。
其實,要當個小屁孩並不容易。你要了解自己,然後夠膽面對自己、忠於自己。假如世界多一些這樣的人,也許會更加有趣!

SHUSHU/TONG SS17 WOMEN’S WEAR

要數近季大熱的時裝,Ruffles、蝴蝶結、厚底鞋這鐵三角肯定不會有人反對吧!由IT走到Lane Crawford定會見到各式各種演繹方法的鐵三角。我想主要有三大原因吧,其一,增加女性感。其二,修飾身材缺點。其三,易於配搭。假如將來你能發現到另一個設計風格符合這三大原因,即使你的品牌不是國際知名,你也肯定能夠賺過盤滿缽滿。
有天我在亂逛online store的時候,在10th shop發現了ShuShu/Tong。這是一個上海的品牌,設計上有不少褶邊原素。最簡單的純色連身裙加荷葉邊點綴不在話下,我最欣賞的是利用粉紅、粉藍兩個顏色的碎花布料拼接而成的作品。坦白講,如果我自己在布棚看到這款布料,我絕對不會有興趣,因為這種碎花給我的感覺就像「上海婆」愛穿的睡衣一樣,和時尚拉不上關係。但當這兩個布料拼接,變成一件短身圓形上衣,不單沒有了我所說的睡衣感。而且還多了一份簡單的時尚感。重點是,別以為那麼多花又圓形剪裁就很難配搭!假如你配的是貼身裙,那造型就更嫵媚動人;假如你配的是牛仔褲,那造型便會清純活潑!你決定好未?

XANDER ZHOU SS17 MEN’S WEAR

Oversize 最吸引人的地方就是無論任何身材都著得入。但現實始終殘酷,過份寬鬆的衣服只會讓體型較大的人看起來更擁腫。所以我很喜歡oversize,但我卻不能駕御他。
北京品牌Xander Zhou的設計也不乏寬鬆的作品,而且他沒有很強調的性別定位,無論男女都很適合。今季ss17最難忘的肯定是那故意加長的手袖和放得入兩個model的「肥佬褲」!老實說這條褲子很有創意,直接將大得穿不下的褲子放在腰上,和內褲的拼接,就像有些男性外露內褲那種穿法的另一種演繹!整個系列還有一股強烈的隨意感,例如藍色PU背心外套又突然有一隻手袖走出來、捲起紙幣的耳環、寬鬆的恤衫加一件背心!十分隨意舒服卻不隨便,是一個充滿幽默感的品牌!

EDITOR’S NOTE : NEW LEADERS

PARISCLIMATE1

Yes, the big news was again Trump this week and again it involved great disappointment. Trump officially pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement joining Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries not to commit. For the biggest player in geo-politics to back out of this treaty, the action could have easily triggered a domino effect for a mass exodus. It has been re-assuring to see that the remaining majority of nations has stayed the course.

Yes, this has presented a vacuum in global leadership, and it looks like many have been willing to take on the mantle, and the challenge it presents. The EU is ardent to see it work, and hey China! Opportunity strikes eh? Why not be a leader, spearheading this cause? We all know you got ambitions on number 1, running you on a collision course with Amurica for power and influence. Well here’s an opportunity to exert it!

It is also great to see that people power has also taken matters into it’s own hands. 7 states in the U.S. have officially moved to honor the Agreement’s goals: California, Washington, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island as of now. Also, a surprisingly large number of the most powerful corporations in the world lobbied the president to hold course including: 3M, Bank of America, Campbell Soup, Cargill, Citigroup, Coca-Cola, Corning, Dow Chemical, DuPont, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Pacific Gas and Electric, Procter & Gamble, Tesla, Virgin Group and the Walt Disney Company*. Whether for the genuine interest of climate protection or the business opportunities this movement represents who cares? Their weight lends a great leverage to the cause.

Amidst the confusion, and anger this has caused it has been re-assuring to see that cooler heads have prevailed to overcome a greater goal. It is re-assuring to see that most of the world’s nations can reach consensus, and put aside differences in this cause. Perhaps socialism is not dead after all. We can unify. As I see our world splinter into smaller and smaller tribes, and groups, it really is the cult of self that has become number one in our culture. I am glad we still have an over riding sense of commitment to society, even as there are more opportunities to isolate ourselves. This action, it bodes well. To new leaders, let’s get it!

A small suggestion from SPITGAN. Incentives to reach these goals ahead of schedule could be offered no? Seems a lot of technology is in place to reach this swiftly and proactively instead of taking the slow lane.

Peace.
