Too Cool for School: Dagda Interview
Dagda is a mysterious collective of three designers from Italy, eschewing the rococo beauty of Florence and Italy’s style capital of Milan, they have made Hackney their home, a district of London that has long been a haven for artists and designers has provided Dagda with the inspiration and environment they needed to flourish in an England that is the real birth place of the absurd and surreal. Dagda is a Celtic word meaning “the good god”. Slowly they are creeping into the limelight with acclaimed stylist Rebekah Roy introducing Kate Nash to the elliptical style of Dagda. I talked to Claudia Ceccantini from Dagda about their forthcoming AW13 collection titled “Skipping School.”
Glamorous Bags in Year of the Water Snake
Half way through this year of the Water Snake and how is it going for you? Well for me its living up to what its billed for, new house, new business, new life, new friends even. Snakes are beguiling, mysterious perhaps glamorous creatures and cannot be ignored, so its not surprising that whether consciously or unconsciously there has been a lot of snake appearing in trends this year. Paul’s Boutique has created some truly bewitching hand bags for this fall with snake skin style detailing.
Krystof Strozyna: Signature
Krystof Strozyna’s new range “Signature” was launched at Wolf & Badger last night in their Gallery. His signature tailoring and sculptural forms are enhanced by a 70s Sci-fi palette of bright yellow, orange, red, beige, white and black. Krystof Strozyna completed an MA Degree at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London in 2007. Upon graduating, he was invited to display his collection in Harrods as one of winners of the Harrods Design Award as well as acclaim in Vogue, Elle and The Sunday Times Style as well as style sirens such as Lily Cole and Sophie Ellis-Bexter. This collection has a science fiction, geometric edge, 3D angles and edges protrude and guide the eye across the curves and tailoried silhouettes. The thick jersey fabric will iron out lumps and bumps to give a smooth outline. Married with matching collars and cuffs give a balance and elegant uniformity. Its design for women who love tailoring but want a bit of edge and for you to remember it. Krystof Strozyna talks about his work and the collection:
I admit it, I don’t feel dirty saying it but you might have noticed this from earlier posts–jewellery turns me on. I don’t do prissy little set diamond rings, but its time to ditch the junk, my skin is bronzed and I want real gold and finally one of my favourite jewellery designers is in town, well on laptop near me. Ileana Makri has become one of the biggest names in contemporary jewellery design having exploded onto the scene with collections in Barneys New York in 1996 with her gold plated silver and gem encrusted jewellery inspired by the myths and their symbolism of her native Greece where she works and lives. Her work has been intertwined with fashion, not corrupted by its trends but in its essence with collaborations with Marios Schwab and The Row by the Olsen sisters.
