    Bobby Abley Autumn Winter 2019 at London Fashion Week Mens
    Bobby Abley’s colourful and zany AW19 collection, which was presented in the Truman Brewery BFC showspace in the heart of artsy Brick Lane, centred around Pokémon, the designer’s childhood memories and his hometown of Scarborough where he designed and worked on the collection.

    The colour palette drew direct inspiration from the cartoon characters with Charmander fiery reds and oranges, mellow Mewtwo-inspired lilacs, Squirtle aquatic blues and Pikachu yellows. High-vis neons and sporty accents of brown, army greens and blacks were also seen. The attention-grabbing collection showcased the classic sportswear technical fabrics, chunky knit sweaters and athleisure silhouettes but with a twist. Sweatshirt and jogger combinations sported all over pokéball prints. A colour block hooded poncho even sported the pokéball motif.

    Vibrant bomber jackets with contrast panelling were covered with busy Pikachu and Charmander all over prints with bottoms to match. A simplified Pikachu motif also made its way onto denim jacket and trouser co-ords. A longline bomber jacket and pyjama set was also splashed with blue Squirtle prints. Particularly striking was a black neoprene sweatshirt and trouser combo sporting a playful Pikachu and large-scale lightening bolt print. Charmander flame inspired contrast panelling was seen on sporty urban jackets, dungarees and matching trousers, and there were boiler suits in fiery brights. It was a true Pokémon party.

    While the Pokémon pieces stole the show, other standout pieces included a large-scale tartan check hoodie with a scarf-like tasseled hem, punk checkerboard print dungarees and an oversized fluoro blazer. The outerwear was particularly dazzling with high shine leather pieces and a zany parka, half Pepto-Bismol pink, half checkerboard printed with the words “whatever” and “forever” plastered along the sleeves. Pink was also a very prominent colour on the runway with a pink trucker jacket and trousers, a pink Pokémon sports tee and shorts, pink hoodies, pink and red checkerboard printed trousers and my ultimate favourite, a cardigan spray painted neon pink.

    The accessories included cowboy hats and bandanas offset with wintery fluoro scarves, balaclavas and baby blankies all hand knitted by the designer’s mum and relatives adding a handmade traditional touch. Neon headbands were also seen as well as chunky boots paired with neon socks. There was even a pokéball shaped bag because why not? In a collection inspired by virtual animals, anything goes! The hair and makeup was as eclectic as the models and the word “ok” was painted across the male models’ faces in bright colours. The few female models seen either sported heavy black or shimmery neon eyeshadow and metallic glittery lips.

    For the finale, a gigantic Pikachu wandered across the catwalk ending the quirky spectacle with a bang. For Bobby Abley, the designer who loves to experiment with childhood nostalgia, you can tell this is yet again another collection made for the guy that’s sporty, cool, fun loving and doesn’t take himself too seriously.

    Designs Influenced by Paul Poiret’s Japanese-Inspired Silhouette at Cushnie Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    Carly Cushnie, famed for creating beautifully crafted designs that flatter the curves of a woman’s body. These looks enticed us with her recent collection inspired by French master couturier, Paul Poiret’s 20th-century Japanese-inspired silhouettes. She also took inspiration from the Japanese art of floral arrangements. Forming angular shapes, and geometric folds inspired by artist Nicola Kloosterman’s Shadowplay collage series. She chose to design this elegant Japanese-inspired collection in decadent navy, burgundy, blue, and purple hues.

    She kept her signature aesthetic of feminine, clean lines, emphasizing on the shape, and form. Hints of boldness were articulated in forms of Japanese-inspired floral print embroidery, artful draping and folds to create pleated shoulder, asymmetrical neckline, and fringed details. The runway looks consisted of exquisitely constructed tops, jackets, trousers, jumpsuits, and skirts in luxurious satin and velvet fabrics.

    This well-tailored collection, with its intricate use of handcrafted techniques, could only be expected of Cushnie.

    Afffair Spring Summer 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    Showing on the last day of fashion week was one of our favorite brands, Afffair. Quickly rising to the top as a preferred choice for celebrities and on the red carpet, designer Rufat Ismayel, creator of Afffair, brought a glamorous vision for this season and the brand. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, Ismayel got his start by modeling for fashion houses as a teenager. He modeled for top brands like Paco Rabanne and Valentine Yudashkin. Then he realized he wanted to make a shift and create his own fashion brand and designs. Moving to Istanbul, he launched Afffair. Ismayel manages everything from design to factory garment production.

    Jeweled details and elegant evening gowns are some of the features that make this collection so luxurious. Most pieces shown this season were dresses except for the occasional jumper, pants, shorts, skirt, and tops. Colors used in the collection were green, gold, and black. Materials noticed included organza, satin, velvet, and chiffon. The collection used opaque materials, and played with the use of skin which added sexy and mysterious vibes. A few of the looks were styled with a headband that complimented the collection.

    Concept Korea Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    The very idea of Concept Korea is a fascinating one: a government-sponsored fashion collective developed to promote a burgeoning crop of talented Korean designers on a global platform. This season, breakthrough brands IISE and LIE each brought exciting, though very different, aesthetics to the world at NYFW.

    LIE opened with a strong offering from designer Chungchung Lee, who delivered a relaxed, dynamic line of feminine daywear to the runway. A visually complex line with layers of contrasting textures, harsh patterns, and experimental textile combinations, Lee’s design aesthetic was unfamiliar, but altogether very desirable. Look-after-look demanded attention and conjured a sense of luxury and wealth: the mid-collection ensemble of wool plaid trousers and a leopard print jacket, both paired with a clashing midi blouse constructed of plaid, matching leopard print, and lace. Lee is an exciting young designer able to actualize his experimental vision and deliver it earnestly on the runway; LIE invokes curiosity and is very promising.

    Helmed by design duo (and brothers) Terrence and Kevin Kim, IISE closed the collective with the intriguing and aptly titled collection, “Protest,” featuring 20 handpicked models of different races, looks, and attitudes. Constructed of materials sourced solely from their home city of Seoul, Protest offered an authentic, surprisingly emotive collection of streetwear designs. Several strong looks in head-to-toe black opened, notably a layered, sleek ensemble of sheer stockings, bicycle shorts, and a nicely tailored vinyl zip-up under a simple, utilitarian jacket. With each look more color was introduced until the complete absence of black was palpable: the intricately patterned and designed pastel blue poncho and trouser set brought a daring authenticity that was all in the details, how it created space and movement down the runway. IISE’s first NYFW offering was spirited and unique, an exploration of a global city’s history and how that narrative might illuminate its future.

    70’s Glam Rock Influences at Hakan Akkaya Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    One of the top shows of the season was from a designer we had not seen before. Istanbul designer Hakan Akkaya’s Fall Winter 2019 Collection proves that 70’s glam rock is back in fashion! The collection had both male and female models walking in the show. The looks and central theme of the collection heavily focused on glamorous punk rock styles influenced by 70’s rock stars icons like David Bowie, Joan Jett, and Billy Idol.

    The rock-glam collection is made to be worn on the big stage as only performers can pull off the blinding shimmers, over sized shoulder pads, sequins decorated with spike and studded details as seen on these pieces. Edgy looks comprised of sparkling bell-bottom pants, pantsuits, bodysuits, dresses, skirts, jackets, fur, and puff coats were some of the pieces we saw. The color palette used consisted of silver, gold, pink and black metallic shades, solid black was used as a staple throughout the collection. Prints like leopard, zebra, pinstripes, checkerboard, and glitter were used. A few of the pieces were embellished with a lightning bolt which added to the 70’s theme.

    These modernized retro-glam outfits which screamed fun vibes would be perfect on celebrities like Lady Gaga or Jennifer Lopez at their concert performances!
