Calliope Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Calliope Italia is just one brand of the Teddy Group, which also produces Terranova, Rinascimento, and Hacienda Pvblica.

Teddy was founded in 1961 in Rimini, Italy, by Vittorio Taddei. Of more recent times, Calliope has expanded to over 100 points of sale since its launch six years ago.

What I like about the 2013 spring/summer collection are the paisley and floral prints mixed with sun-faded denim and camo prints—all in a soft hue.

Silas Adler Speaks to the Great Divide

Today I received this interview from the Great Divide with Danish designer Silas Adler, who discusses the inspiration of his spring/summer 2013 campaign, skateboarding and more.

There’s a lot of architecture in your sweats and shirting for the coming season. The house print/embroidery is definitely my favourite thing in the collection. What was the

inspiration behind these pieces? The sleeve print to me seems to reference old skate and metal shirts.

It’s funny because it’s two very strong inspirations merge into one sweatshirt.

The Inspiration for the houses comes from Paris and the fashion house as a structure – The Maison. It all started in Paris with Lanvin, Chanel, LV etc. I started to think of the institutions as the rulers and the ones who control fashion, sort of like the Illuminati or some thing like that. So I drew all these houses and made small sentences to go with each house. Then to make a complete contrast I made the piece as a classic skate sweatshirt.

The prevailing theme behind your SS13 collection is the French bourgeoisie. I read somewhere that your intention was to poke a little fun at bourgeois tendencies. Now I don’t believe that we’re all completely free of bourgeois inclinations – in our office for example there are a few coffee snobs. What’s your guilty bourgeois tendency that you couldn’t live without?

I mean just the fact that I work in fashion. I don’t know, I guess I’m a bit of a coffee snob actually now that you mentioned it. I drink my coffee black with no sugar or milk, so why bother drinking coffee that taste like shit. This one goes out to all the coffee snobs at TGD – I’m with you!

There always seems to be an element of humour in Soulland collections, do you think that it’s important that fashion incorporates an element of humour.

There is always humour and irony in the Soulland collections. I think it´s super important that fashion can be fun.

Do you still keep up with skateboarding? I’m of the opinion that once you’re a skateboarder, you’re always a skateboarder even if you can’t physically skateboard anymore – take Cardiel for example. There’s a lot of really cool Scandinavian skateboarding right now with Dank Magazine and companies like Bellows and of course Polar.

I agree! Once you go deep into skateboarding you will never find your way out.

And you shouldn’t! I will not compare myself to Cardiel because he is one of the most hardcore people ever. People always mention Danny Way and I get the fact that he is a robot and bla bla bla. But Cardiel is the a truth.

I think there are two kinds of pros. The ones that skaters like; Cardiel, Busenitz, Chewy Cannon, Lucas Puig etc. Then there are the pros that the public likes; Prod, Nyjah Huston, Mikey Taylor etc… Street League – ESPN etc. And to make my point; a lot of the new things from the Scandinavian scene is based on the by Skateboarders for Skateboarders mentality. I’m down! Polar is going off and putting Malmø and Copenhagen on the map.

Respect! By the way, I still skate – just not enough!

Any plans to venture outside of menswear?

I mean we do shoes and accessories now. The shoe collection is starting to go really good so that will continue to be a focus. But not womenswear for now.

Paul & Joe Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

The 2013 spring/summer collection of Paul & Joe is not only fun but also diversified. Amidst the assortment of blazers, tees, chinos, jeans, and suits, designer Sophie Albou plays with a combination of prints, colors, and formal vs casual looks.

At times, the silhouette is unified in pattern and color as the designer matches each garment closely to create a cohesive look.

At other times, the look is slightly broken up as prints and graphic tees are paired with matching solid colors.

Finally, the designer skillfully pulls together patterns and prints into a harmonious clash, keeping symmetry and balance of motion and color.

Ana Locking Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection "McGuffin"

“Two men are travelling by train in England and one man says to the other, “What’s that package up there in the baggage rack?”, and the other answers, “Oh, that’s a McGuffin”. The first one asks, “What’s a McGuffin?” “Well,” the other one says, “It’s a device for trapping lions in the Scottish Highlands.” The first man says, “But there are no lions in the Scottish Highlands”, and the other one answers, “Well, then that’s not a McGuffin!”  (François Truffaut, “The Cinema According to Hitchcock.”)

Alfred Hitchcock coined the term “McGuffin” as a resource or excuse that serves as a means of beginning the plot of a story but which, at heart, is not really important to the story itself. That is to say, the “McGuffin” is only a device that introduces some kind of conflict in order to bring a story to life, and sometimes a series of characters that have little to do with the main idea.

Without “McGuffin” there are no stories, but “McGuffin” always constitute the aspect that is forgotten first. One of the most important aspects when creating a story is the relationship that is established with the onlooker. In my work I always establish references that involve the onlooker, which establish a link between what I want to say and what the onlooker internalises. Over time, the recurrent use of these references and stories within my work has come to form an indissoluble part of my brand and my own personality. However, on this occasion I have not sought to tell my own story, but to use “McGuffins” that enable each onlooker to develop and invent their own stories.

What really counts in the story of each collection is the way that each person identifies with it, and in this case it is no more than an excuse to express the great passion that I feel for my work, to portray my own visual world packed with small ironic references,  with the sole aim of transcending the reality of those who observe and enjoy it.


The day begins with a deliberate emphasis on jackets and coats, on structures and rigorous patterning, but without discarding the elegance of a ready-to-wear appeal in other street clothing items featuring rigid and voluminous fabrics in which the curves are enhanced through the natural structure of neoprene and flocked knits.  These are constructed through precise cuts and a specific way of assembling the seams, evolving towards the evening with a pencil silhouette that evokes a glamorous serenity with long and sober dresses characterised by a special attention to detail and an agreeable sensation of calm and security.


An extensive range of warm colours that range from Portland orange to Persian red, without forgetting Ribera del Duero red, bright ultramarine and Cordovan black.


Jacquard smudges, double face satin Duchesse cut on the cross and sewn in zigzags, woollen serge with a crackled finish, two-layered transparent gummed finishes, cotton jersey knits for sweaters featuring a waffled finish, printed neoprene, flocked wool featuring geometric motifs, plain and printed woollen crêpe fil de fer, crêpe de chine with a starry-sky effect featuring interwoven lurex.  A still-life of Baroque flowers in red, vanilla and ultramarine. Jacquards in Portland orange, Navajo white and Cordovan black. Crêpe fil de fer in black, vanilla and Persian red. Woollen cloth in Portland orange and ultramarine blue. A double gummed finish in smoky black and grape green. Crêpe de chine in Prussian blue. Duchesse satin in sequoia brown and coal black.

Spats & Mercedes Fashion Week

People always ask me, “When you go to fashion weeks, what do you wear?”

Well, anything I want since I’m not the one that everybody is looking at on the runway! 

But I do like to look nice, so for this season at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, I wore my spats! “What are spats,” you ask?

Several weeks ago, I was shopping in Chelsea at one of my favorite stores called Mardana, where I saw a pair of handmade Cydwoq shoes in the window.

What I loved about the shoes was the spats look!

Spats is the abbreviated form of the word spatterdashes, which became popular in the late 1800’s and fell out of use in the 1920’s—for civilians, that is.

The term goes back to the 1700’s for the long leggings that protected stockings and trousers from spattering of mud while on horseback.

Soldiers also wore spats, and in some cultures spats appear in uniforms as with Indian and Pakistani armies, as well as the Swedish, Finnish, and Egyptian.

Refresher: Spring/Summer Trends

The Short Suit
One of the stand out trends for men’s designer fashion was the short suit. In daring colours and daring lengths, the short suit is a trend that designers have been playing with for a very long time. A tailored cut to wear with a matching (or not) blazer is the only way to wear shorts this season.

Richard James
This designer sent his models down the runway wearing linen short suits in neon brights, stripes and paisley prints. The tailored shorts stopped just above the knee and were paired with a single-breasted blazer. Although most were matching, some of his collection paired mismatched shorts and blazer combinations, emphasising the wear-ability of the shorts as smart and casual.

Raf Simons
Raf Simons’ shorts stopped mid-thigh and were featured on nearly every look. Influenced by sportswear, they featured slit detail at the front of the leg. A bold and audacious look, many of the suits were in bold jewel colours and as spring comes around will be reserved only for the very adventurous.

With metallic pieces already hitting the high streets, it seems that metallic menswear is going to be a hit. Making a statement will be easy this season.

Burberry Prorsum
Looking somewhat sweet-like, the models paraded down the catwalk in shades of metallic green, pink, orange and yellows and every garment imaginable was metallicised, from cardigans to shirts. Paired with black or neutral, there was a real aspect of wearability to this collection.

A sports luxe feel with metallic grey hoodies and oversized parachute coats, Lanvin took a more directional, cutting edge approach to his collection.

This season men’s designer clothing is about making a statement, expressing yourself and never blending in to the background.

The Shore Clothing Brand

Some clothing brands have a relatively linear progression in terms of the development of their product ranges; they might start out providing footwear for gentlemen and later on branch out into scientifically-designed, ergonomic fitness and general purpose footwear (As Ecco shoes have done, for example) or expanding a product range to include different kinds of shirts, like polo-neck as well as t-shirts and so on. Some, however, have taken a bit of an unusual route into the industry, and Shore clothing are a case in point.

Simon Crawford, the founder, was a student at the time so understandably found it a bit difficult to get money together for his new surf venture in Sussex in the UK-at the time (in the early 80’s) windsurfing was coming up as a new sport, and people were wanting to try it out. Simon started by hiring boards out, and doing a bit of tuition as well. He founded Shore fully later in the 1980’s as a wetsuit supplier. Soon though, demand started to pick up for surf fashion items as well as the standard wetsuits and surfboard aspect; surfing and casual fashion began to get more strongly associated with surfing as a culture with brands such as Quiksilverand Billabong coming to the fore.

The brand is an action sport and casual-orientated one;  if you visit,  it’s immediately apparent that most of the products have a casual, made-to be worn feel. A mixture of patterned and non-patterned designs are used in the gear and the much-vaunted “rider-refined-program” essentially means that Shore’s own sports steam tests the gear and accessories that they produce under sporting conditions, something rare in the fashion industry insofar as testing is concerned. Whilst not applying to every single product, the process makes for pretty durable clothing.

The animal range also includes a large number of watches, mostly-surfing-orientated of course but with an emphasis on attempting to attain style for the active whilst being practical at the same time. When Shore was initially set up, one of the first innovations they worked on was a watch strap designed to stop watches from falling off in the sea.-if you want a reliable, durable watch Shore might be the way to go.
