DESIGNER – SVETLANA BEVZA

The minimalism on the clothes is very powerful. Sometimes, is not all about creating clothes full of garish shades and infinite embellishments to attract our attention. Monochromatic colors and accurate simplicity work out perfectly and let us create our unique style making those minimalist items our own.

 

Ukranian designer Svetlana Bevza with her brand Bevza, has created a collection full of femininity and sensuality; suggestive yet elegant. The sharp silhouettes, graphic cut and strict forms she features in her designs, even if they seem simple, they are full of rich details that make each garment unique and special. The brightness and the simplicity of the colors keep the purity and the importance of the tailoring alive as if the garments were our second skin.

ARTIST – RAJNI PERERA

It’s interesting to realise how different are seen topics such as sexuality or beauty. Over the years different images have been built by the influence of several industries, which in turn have power over society’s point of view. But a mixture of a wide range of different conceptions is always something positive; and if that combination is translated into artworks the result can’t get any better.

 

Rajni Perera‘s works are beautiful. The way she mixes the eastern culture with the pop culture has as a result an exotic and very engaging series of powerful images decorated with vibrant colors. But of course, the deep inspiration that Rajni takes from the fascinating Hindu mythology has a striking influence on her creations, to provide them with a charming mystical vibe. Once again, it’s proved how the mixture between different cultures comes up with astonishing results.

DESIGNER – ALEX MULLINS

Some pieces of clothing are true pieces of art; and it doesn’t necessarily utterly depend on how well the items are tailored. Sometimes the prints that are shown are the ones that make a collection, worth to be displayed in any museum. Alex Mullin’s AW14 collection gathers two concepts that I really admire from any designer: adapting edgy and surprising clothes to the streetwear making them wearable and featuring original and unique prints that somehow resemble to artworks. In his latest collection I can’t help but see some cowboy inspiration with the oversized denim pants, the scarf and the jacket. But without denying the elegant and mature side that the richness of the cut provide to the tough silhouette. There is a minimal yet powerful vibe in the clothes due to the small details that decorate the items and the final result is rough yet fine.

ARTIST – SHINIQUE SMITH

Shinique Smith is an america artist who is inspired but the extensive vocabulary of things that we consume and discard. The things that we take advantage of everyday. Inspecting the ways in which these objects can affect our personal and social scales of life. She uses clothes from herself and family members, which they do not need. She takes these things and creates her work which gives the impression of making something out of nothing. Smith pursues the graceful and spiritual qualities in the written word and the everyday life. She also uses these inspirations and blends of colours and textures and creates drawings and paintings sort of representing something of beauty.
