ZIMO / SS23 Collection / DOLORES STREET

Published

on

One of today’s promising young fashion designers and founder of the fashion label ZIMO, Zimo Yan, presented her SS23 collection — named ‘Dolores Street’ after the main street in Chinatown in Mexico — at New York Fashion Week Spring 2023.

Known for celebrating Asian heritage through documentary-style visuals, Yan’s latest work takes on the theme of Asian families immigrating to foreign countries around the world in the 1990s. Her SS23 presentation was presented like a documentary, incorporating installations and recreating scenes of Asian immigrants leaving their home countries.

ZIMO was founded under the motto “We the visions,” which stands for “we observe, we document, and we present. Regarding her label as a “fashion documentary,” Yan uses garments and accessories to comment on contradictions in modern society. Consequently, ZIMO presents its unique perspective on the evanescence of culture amidst an increasingly globalized world.

The main focus of the brand is to shine a light on the past by using long-forgotten and antiquated objects that no longer exist today. Obtained from Asian elders, previous collections integrated dead stock comprised of upcycled pajamas and old towels in their clothing. Through a variety of textiles and repurposed materials, ZIMO redefines the modern silhouette. Drawing from the fashion-forward style of contemporary Asian youth, the brand combines traditional and modern elements to come up with its own genre and look, one that allows all genders to express themselves through clothing.

SS23 is inspired by 1990s Asian immigrants who left their homes in pursuit of a better life in other countries. While settling in their new homes, they made it a point to preserve their culture and often upheld old traditions better than those who never left the Far East.

Dolores Street incorporated upcycled jersey cloth and discarded porcelain beads from Chinese elders. In addition, the collection features ample crochet patchwork, inspired by the table cloth typically used by Asian families in the 90s. Exaggerated ruffle hems and Mexican-style patchwork symbolizes a blend of different cultures while Latin-inspired elements embodying stories of Asian immigrants that moved to Mexico.

In addition, the collection captures the complex environment in which Asian youth in Western countries grow up. Intertwining expectations from Eastern families and Western friends, influences from two cultures, and the inevitable question of true belonging forges a new identity of individuals finding their place in the world.

The collection weaves fragments of Eastern influences on Western culture into its collection, thereby showing how these two cultures influenced one another.

INTERIOR – FW24 Just Like We Never Said Goodbye

Published

on

For Fall/Winter 2024, Interior has set their woman amidst the heyday of New York City nightlife during the 1970’s, 80’s, and 90’s – – a time when places like Studio 54, Danceteria, Tunnel, AREA, Palladium, and Limelight served as democratic environments in which people’s visual personas were fostered and celebrated for authenticity rather than an ability to assimilate.

By juxtaposing various club-going archetypes of the era (the painter, the model, the corporate yuppie, the writer, the socialite heiress, the off-duty ballerina, the musician, the fading actress, the 80’s call girl, the grunge club kid) – – all of whom marched to the beat of their own aesthetic drum – – the collection offers a counter to the monolithic style standards of today’s algorithm-driven world in which sameness seems to be the ultimate goal.

As always, Interior has taken the clothes of this season’s ensemble cast and filtered them through a distorted, off-killer lens: the lines of a pinstripe suiting fabric are dashed and broken, an ethereal chiffon gown unravels into tatters as the hem, a cut of mangy shearling adorns the collar of an otherwise traditionally tailored overcoat.

Today’s presentation features a soundtrack that has been intentionally muffled to mimic the sound of house music reverberating through a wall, and the entire space has been wrapped in an optic white polyester tarp. The intention is to create a “non-space” space that evokes the same feeling of a late twentieth century nightclub in NYC, all of which ultimately served as containers for the expression of the people within them.

Max Mara Tailleur Sartoriale Primavera Estate 2024

Published

on

PRIMAVERA ESTATE 2024
Max Mara presenta la collezione Primavera Estate 2024 del progetto Tailleur Sartoriale.
Al centro del progetto la giacca intelata: assoluta, essenziale e autenticamente classica.

Protagonista di ogni look, la giacca è versatile e capace di adattarsi al total look, ma anche al look spezzato. Diventa un perfetto compagno di viaggio, trasversale a diversi momenti della giornata e a differenti situazioni, solamente cambiando gli accessori con i quali poterla indossare.

La qualità della giacca intelata Max Mara è legata alla cultura della confezione maschile che necessita di 345 minuti di lavoro, il doppio di tempo rispetto a una giacca standard. L’uso del canvas interno, la ribattitura dei 130 punti a mano sul giro manica e il paziente lavoro di stiratura fanno sì che la giacca si modelli con naturalezza sul corpo femminile valorizzando qualsiasi look.

Per la Primavera Estate sono presenti sette nuovi modelli, doppiopetto o semplice petto; la giacca semplice
petto su silhouette femminile e la giacca super soft: intelata ma destrutturata è così leggera da sembrare una camicia. Da abbinare a pantaloni piccoli oppure ampi e con le pinces.
Questa stagione la ricerca di tessuti si è concentrata su lana e mohair unito e cangiante, lana e seta unita ed effetto melange, pura lana melange e lana gessata.
Tessuti pregiati e cura nei dettagli, come quello della fodera color champagne che rende la giacca
estremamente femminile.

La proposta dei colori spazia dagli assoluti bianco e nero ai nuovi colori di stagione ispirati alle sfumature dei fiori selvatici appartenenti alla tradizione scandinava come il menta, il nigella, l’alchemilla, il fiordaliso, il primula e le varie tonalità della rosa per giungere ai colori neutri legati alla tradizione della sartoria maschile, quali il cacha, il cuoio, il sabbia, i grigi – chiari e scuri – e i blu.

In occasione del Chinese New Year 2024 la collezione presenza una giacca color rosso caratterizzata da una speciale fodera dedicata all’anno del Drago.

La giacca è senza tempo.
La giacca è contenuta, mai esasperata.
La giacca è moderna e trasversale nella sua grande classicità.
