Strathberry Fall Winter 2019 – Introducing The Allegro
The Strathberry Fall Winter 2019 collection explores a world famous fairytale. The collection has chosen to follow Alice down the rabbit hole as they bring inspirations from Lewis Carroll’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to life. They have based designs after Carroll’s original illustrations, thus keeping to some of the author’s original inspirations and ideas. Exclusive colors incorporated into this season’s collection are Maple, Purple Potion and a bright Alice Blue. Combining these rich and cool color tones along with a variety of classic luxury textures and shapes is an element that keeps Strathberry ahead of their competition. A few of the more specialized items from the collection are detailed and embroidered with stars, hearts, rabbits, clocks and mushrooms in a style that would remind you of Lewis Carroll’s work. Some of the most fun bags from the collection are made using a weaving pattern that incorporates an optical illusion. This one of a kind effect becomes absolutely memorizing and draws all of your attention to the bag. Although Strathberry has been known for bags with strong and sharp cuts, for this season they have introduced some softer, curved and slightly more feminine shapes with the Breve and Allegro shoulder bags. In this collection they have also decided to expand their selection of bags and are bringing us one of the trendiest selections thus far. They have created a belt bag using the shape of the new Allegro bag. Belt bags are a growing trend in the fashion street style community, a new trend we expect to see growing over the next few years. Each and every one of the bags is made with a Strathberry signature metal bar closure, a unique element only Strathberry is known for. All of the bags are made in limited quantities so anytime you get a Strathberry bag you know you are getting something special that you won’t see with someone else walking down the street.
The luxury leather accessories brand Strathberry was launched in 2011 by its founders Guy and Leeanne Hundleby. They decided to base the brand’s official headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland. In July 2013 they opened their first boutique in the Grassmarket district of Edinburgh, Scotland. A few months later they closed their boutique to focus their energy and efforts on a global level. In 2015 they chose to launch a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of £25,000. The brand quickly received overwhelming support and quadrupled their goal. In December 2017 the Strathberry brand made a move for which they will continue to be known around the world: as Megan Markle made her first public appearance after becoming engaged to Prince Harry, she was seen and photographed with a Strathberry Tri-Color Midi Tote. The bag immediately sold-out around the world which created what we now know to be the Meghan Markle Effect. Both Guy and Leeanne Hundleby remain with the company and continue to bring their unique and creative vision for Strathbberry and present it to the world. Today, the brand is independently owned, and not available on the public market. This unique fact adds extra power to the Strathberry fashion label.

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!
