Simon Ekrelius ::: A P A R T ::: Spring/Summer 2013

SIMON EKRELIUS has long been one of The Fashion Birdcage's favourite European designers, and I'm extremely proud to feature his recent Spring/Summer 2013 Collection, APART.

The inspiration behind this exquisite collection lies between the idea of moving and recyclable architecture and the migration of the extinct butterfly - the Monarch - from Canada to Mexico, exemplifying the idea of a nomadic life.


Here are some additional images from his collection ...

Preston Zly Design Summer 2013 ::: 'Souvenir' Faves

Take a step back in time with the Trainer, a time in the 1970s when the afro was the height of cool and the air was thick with excitement.  A time "where the future seems changeable and the conservative past is but a faded memory."  

Love the contrast cherry red leather lining against the gold ... It's currently available in green & gold, but cobalt & gold is coming soon. 

 'Souvenir' fondly remembers Picasso’s Spain. In his own art he celebrated the innate elegance of peasant arts and crafts. Simple, direct froms, bold colours and raw materials transformed through an ancient cunning. These primitive artifacts, wrought by practiced peasant hands as easily as they would roll tobacco, or hobble a horse, were destined to stand their own in an ultra modern interior - Monaco or the Versailles palace.

Summer 2013 is urban primitivism, rope sewing together bold glossy shapes, or knotted to form whole panels. Old forgotten forms made ultra modern in the Deda and Tango. Perforated or metallic leathers nailed directly onto wooden platforms.
    - Preston Zly

The Bow Pump is a timeless, yet modern classic inspired by the graceful style of Audrey Hepburn in her famous film Roman Holiday. This versatile design can be worn with a gorgeous vintage dress and looks just as amazing with leggings or the classic jean, and is available in cobalt or chocolate.

ZAKARY LE STÉLE ::: 'Rua do Moderno' Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Zakary le Stéle's Spring/Summer 2013 Collection explores the themes surrounding claustrophobia and mental disintegration within a rural Portuguese villa setting, utilising the label's choice of hypnotic abstract prints.

The theme is harshly juxtaposed with the designer's floaty, windswept vision. Soft, fluid, diaphanous silks billow in the breeze peacefully and freely, with wild tilapia fish leather accents and structured camel wool cut sharply to the body in a modern sweep.
