Iris Van Herpen is a young and a very talentuos designer who worked also with McQueen and that has a unique, really, point of view about fashion. Some shapes could be similar to some David Koma's sresses, the shoes could remind us some McQueen's pieces, but the use of fabrics and the "aesthethic" is absolutely new and unique. On her website she explains in a wonderful way every collection and her own vision so I don't believe that I need to say something else, watch and enjoy these pics...

I saw this campaign on the "L'uomo Vogue" magazine and I'm really sorry that some parts of these pics are deleted but I hope you could understand the "meaning" the same. These drawings communicate the essence of the gothic and rock'n'roll style of John Richmond. The black and white and the dark style of the adv I believe that give us the best image of this maison. I do love that this campaign is not the classic one where clothes, accessories and so on are simply "shown"... here the idea is to express the DNA of Richmond and not just a collection.
There are some words written on the adv, I tried to enlarge them but I don't think that you can see them. So I write these "sentences",.
"Lies sex religion", "destroy disordinate disorder", "vos quod intereo fuck" ("intereo" is a latin verb that means "to die", "vos" means "you" and "quod" means "because or that" and the sentence could be translated, but I'm not sure as "you that I kill, fuck!".
All these phrases express a feeling of "disorder" that these brand communicates through its collections. These words, in the order in which they are put and with these drawings, give us a sense of "movement" and "chaos", that has a wonderful effect for me.

Speaking about a large bottle lamp could appear stupid but I would like to put the attention on how the fashion world is "conquering" every aspect of our life and integrating with everything. So, I post this lamp but I could think about the candles of Margiela and Gucci, for example, about the Bicycles (Fendi, Gucci, Chanel...), about the snowboard (Chanel...) and so on.
By the way, Margiela is one of the brand which owns an hotel, wich creates avant garde pret-a-porter and haute couture, wich has a unique point of view...in summary, wich matches design and fashion. I'm thinkig to the transparent shoes, for example. So, this maison is an example, a model, of fashion wich is intergrated in everything and this allows "fashion" to be more open, more "innovative" and so to develop more interesting ideas. I would like that more brands apply this philysophy that is also the one of Armani (armani home, hotel and the rtw/haute couture), Fendi (home and rtw), Missoni (home, hotel and rtw), Versace (home, hotel and rtw), Ralph Lauren (home, hotel and rtw), Oscar de la Renta (home, hotel and rtw).
So, it's true that a lot of brands are applying this èhilosophy: adding to their "classical fashion things" other things of the daily life... but I believe that Margiela is the only one to have a really UNIQUE concept-design idea on which it develops all its creations.
