Fashion: Dennis Diem AFW 14

I got an invitation to attend the show of Dorhout Mees during the Amsterdam Fashion Week. I’m a big fan of her work so it was a pleasure to go. I thought her collection was beautiful, but the main colors didn’t appeal to me as much. I did however like her nature theme and think her work always is beautifully organic. I also saw some shots of the AW14 collection Opium Dream by Dennis Diem. I really liked his ethereal collection very much so I chose to feature some photo’s on the blog. I love collections that really emphasize the feminine and I thought Dennis really was successful in doing exactly that. The flow and cut of his dresses is really magnificent! His dresses are dreamlike but have a touch of the dark side… Remember his name! {Photo’s copyright Ganbaroo}

Fashion: Lesia Paramonova

While we are in the middle of the warmest winter in ages (you don’t really hear me complaining) I can easily get away with looking at summer collections past and present. According to the Russian fashion designer Lesia Paramonova her brand LES (Russian for ‘forest’) attempts to merge humans and nature. This is why you can see a lot of floral prints, animals and transparent materials in her collections. The photo’s of this collection are from her summer 2012 collection and I think they are really beautiful. Soft materials with flowers and animals, pure and feminine. Like a dream. Do check out her latest collection at her Tumblr site. She makes her own illustrations too. {all photo’s copyright Lesia Paramonova)
