RICHARD CHAI-up and coming

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on February 28, 2009

Richard Chai is a young designer on the New York fashion scene. He is definitely worth watching with his feminine and still cool style. Richard used to work for Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan but his style is more like 3.1 Phillip Lim. Cool leather with puffed sleeves. Different sleeve length on top of each other. Pleats, gatherings…Pictures from his A/W 2009 collection

INSPIRING MAGAZINES

Posted in Art, Fashion by stylecouch on February 28, 2009

My number one fashion magazine, the brittish LULA has got a cousin in italy!! I love LULA for the fantastic pictures – funny styling, the colours and the quality of the magazine. Now I just found another one in Milano –MUSE the fashionart magazine – absolutely fantastic! Great articles – fabulous pictures and the perfect combination of fashion and art. They have nothing to do with eachother but some how in the same genre. Definitely both keepers – just like books! I hope this is also available in Denmark.

BLACK FASHION WEEK IN LONDON

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on February 23, 2009

Danish Peter Ingwersen presented his CSR based collections NOIR and BLLACK NOIR at Londons Fashion Week. Ethical collections that do not look biological but ones I would love to wear! He descripes his inspiration for the collection very simple : “Asymmetry, slim silhouettes and too little sleep.”

The catwalk showed cropped leather styles, studded black jeans, sleeveless full length god dresses, harems trousers, shimmering tops, heavy visible zips all over, wide waist belts, massive gatherings, beautiful fabrics- all in rock chic colour palette of black, deep inky blue and metallic gold. A collection with attitude, rock ‘n’ roll and power. Hot, sexy, edgy!

THE SHOREDITCH ART SCENE

Posted in Art by stylecouch on February 22, 2009

Cool, funny and unique interior design and art in the amazing FUMI gallery with a very personal and in my opinion fabulous style!! Among many fantastic objects you can find the beautiful candlelight chandeleers, all in wax so everything can be burned. Pieke Bergman’s cool ‘ light blub’ installation desk – combining retro lamp style with modern bubble shaped lamp. I also loved the humorous chicken made out of pencils. The gallery is located a short walk from Old Street tube station. For sure on my ‘London Art’  hot spot list!

HIP ART IN EAST LONDON

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on February 20, 2009

KK OUTLET is a combination of a communication agency, a gallery and an art/book shop. It is based in the cool Hoxton Square in London’s hip and creative area in the eastern part the city. KK OUTLET is a part of the Amsterdam based KesselKramer commucation agency. A really cool place – extremely inspiring with people working in the middle of the gallery/shop. So many to-die-for books that overweight on the flight will be an actual problem when going back to DK with ryanair and a limit of 15 kilos luggage…anyway it is definitely worth a visit!! Everybody who would like to get a first impression should have a view on their website www.kkoutlet.com

NEO-BURLESQUE

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on February 17, 2009

 

I wish I was in NY….Not only because of fashion week – but also because this place inspires me more than anywhere else in the world! Next time I go there I will definitely go to Lower East Side to watch a Burlesque show. Burlesque is a humorous genre of entertainment. A show including cabaret dansers,striptease dansers,comedian, punk/rock singers etc. The new burlesque, which is becoming really popular in NY, is a revival from the traditional burlesque genre which started already in the nineteenth century’s music hall in the US and even earlier in Europe. It should be crazy, funny, extreme, glamourous and definitely over the top styled! The best place should be somewhere in the Lower East Side…Would love to know where?

OSLO FASHION FAIR 13-15. FEBRUARY

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on February 16, 2009

Just came back from Oslo Fashion Fair where we were presenting Eda Mae’s Autumn 09 collection. This is a new fair in Norway held in a factory in the trendy Grünerløkka area. The exhibitors were really cool and counted brands as April77, Rützou, Ann Hagen, Rika, Hope, Vanessa Bruno etc. Super cool brands but unfortunately almost no visitors there.

 

However, my shoe fetich was satisfied at the fair! The coolest thing I saw there was the shoe relationship between Rützou and Mentor – wauv! – I cannot wait to get a pair of the short boots with oversize zipper – like a sculpture and still really cool and also comfortable – the hardest thing is to choose between the black rock n’ roll or the smooth grey suede…and waiting until Autumn!

Welcome to my Blog

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on February 13, 2009

Hello everybody,

 

I am not the only one and I am sure I am not the last one to open up my own blog – but I am very happy having decided to do it. On stylecouch.dk I would like to invite you and to open up the window into my little world. I will keep you updated on my designs, collections and part of my life, but  I will also let you have a few views behind the scene of my collection. From time to time I will also request some answers on new collection ideas, so that I can design collections you would really love to wear.
