Vladimir Karaleev – Berlin Fashion Week SS14

This season, Fawn is all over Vladimir Karaleev’s SS14 collection.

Elegant and subtle, the focus is on textiles, layers and depth, and producing geometrically shaped garments.

The collection consists of combinations of white, grey and soft dusty pinks which shimmer gold when caught in the light…exactly what we’re feeling for summer.

Fawn is excited to carry Rashmi Varma’s first collection for spring summer 2014.  A dear friend of ours, it’s a collection of minimal dreamyness; a new women’s wear line that explores traditional India through a modern lens. Drawing from endless ways to drape, fold and pleat unstitched garments such as the sari, the dhoti and the odhni, Spring Summer 2014 focuses on pure materials, human hands and wearable forms.

Collaborating with artisans, the collection utilizes several hand craft techniques; khadi, chikankari and dabka embroidery which are offset by digitally printed graphics. Working with silks, cottons and jerseys in a palette of whites, blacks and reds, a sense of elegant ease pervades the collection with just the right amount of downtown edge.

Made & Crafted in India.

Behind the Scenes: The Style of Momo Suzuki of Black Crane.

We are huge fans of Black Crane and LA based designer Momo Suzuki. We love her easy and modern pieces, and we’re especially fond of this season’s linen breezy collection.

Refinery 29 tours Momo’s lovely home, which reflects the designer’s amazing style and collection. We love Black Crane pieces because they really are for everyday living.

The Black Crane spring summer 14 collection is now available in store.

We just got back from NYC, buying collections for Fall 2014. Spring hasn’t shown itself yet and with fashion working a season ahead, we’re already thinking fall fashion. Take a look at what’s to come from this short concept film from New York’s Apiece Apart.

Boessert/Schorn represents extraordinary items, combining materials with characteristic surfaces and structures especially knitwear in all its variations. Boessert/Schorn enlists special handcraft methods, knit techniques or dyeings, basically inspired by old things, craft and traditional costumes.

If you’re looking for a stand out piece, this is the line to look out for.

The Place: Avant Garde Diaries, NYC

The Girl: Dani Griffiths, designer of the brand Clyde.

The Style: What I like is the idea of wearing a light dress in any season, just adapting the layering so it stays cozy. Chic and easy.
