Take a stroll through the hallways with the New York duo as they debut their AW15 lookbook and talk furries, cliques and re-enrolling as rule breakers.
“Furry subculture, medicine, hospitals, goth punk girls, vampires, Guro Lolita, ball-jointed dolls,” these are a few of design duo Ammerman Schlösberg's favourite things – at least for AW15. Treading deep within the dark side this season, black PVC boots were buckled high, stitching was zigzagged in Bride of Frankenstein fashion, fur was cuffed and purposed into pinstriped tails, and black hair was untamed.

Our denim dreams come true. Faustine Steinmetz
took her techniques to the next level in her quest to make everyday clothing special and elevate industrial pieces. Jeans came hand-felted and brushed with orange and white details to outline the stitching in a trompe l’oeil effect, or painted in silicone with thick, whipped strokes that were echoed in jewelry and hair pieces by Lara Jensen

LA weather has been feeling like warm Spring days or cool Summer days, and all I can think of are pastel colours and light fabrics...

Daughters of Nigerian immigrants, the sisters were motivated by the interplay of their parents and personal style with American culture.
Happy New Year! I've got plenty of awesome posts coming up for this year.
One resolution I made is to not wear boring clothes and so I came across Montreal based label Atelier Wonder, launched in late 2013. Their Spring/Summer 2015 collection entitled Savage Youth inspired by post-soviet youth with an unconventional punk twist.
Ai Wei Wei teamed up with Dover Street Market - Rei Kawakubo's concept store - and V Magazine for the artsy fashion editorial. The models are wearing brands like Hood By Air, Shaun Samson, KTZ, Phoebe English, Jaquemus and many more.
The artist referenced his 2006 Colored Vases sculptures, treating his own studio personnel and friends as models.
Writing for V from Beijing, Ai explained: "Pouring a color on an outfit... creates a midpoint between two conflicting ideas. Gravity and the shape of the clothes combine to create a unique moment. Using these cultural products as ready-made [objects] celebrates and reinterprets the intention of creativity. I think this act shows my respect toward their creativity."
