Sometimes in these fashion weeks, its more of a statement to go off the regular day shows schedule and find something amusingly 'cool'. Philipp Plein did a whole nightime event instead (show & party) called "BulletProof Hero". Whether it may be trendy, tacky, or directional in some way, it can be suprisingly FUN.

With no formal education in fashion nor basic stitching skills, well travelled German Philipp Plein who merely started designing furniture for family and friends in the late 90s and started street fashion in the mid 2000s...

ROCKS us all with his bikers, skate board dudes meets heavy metal/acid!

Show opener was that mean looking Chuck Bass character of GG (or his lookalike?), the night was topped off with a kicking after party in this palatial venue with gogo girls to match...

Well Done Philipp, see you in your next Fashion Do back in Milan or wherever it may be.

Bit of Cyber Meets Fashion: Bernhard Willhelm SS13

Willhelm consistently pushes boundaries in fashion as a forward thinker. 

A vision away from the common norm with a conceptual style that goes beyond gender identity and further than just fashion towards art.

Fusions in performance art, styling, theatre, fashion.

Yet again here we have a presentation executed with a seemingly ongoing trend in Paris these days.

Here's looking forward to more of these.

Danielle Romeril

Dublin born Danielle Romeril, having graduated from Royal College of Art  London and  following her move to Italy where she worked with Alberta Ferretti, we at Facades were keen to see what Danielle had come up with for her debut S/S 13 solo collection at this season's London Fashion Week.

Danielle had taken inspiration from the photography of John Thomson’s ‘China Series’ (1868-1872), adding to this aesthetic, a modern finish and a unique progressive edge. Laser cut leather, silver silk lame and Swarovski crystal pearls, along with geometric  The creations show freshness in colour palette, predominantly showing hues such as blue, turquoise, teal, white and silvers, with light touches of orange and pinkPrints have been fused together with three-dimensional structures and sleek silhouettes. The compilation includes mid-length sharp, structured sleeves on tops as well as dresses, with statement jackets, edgy ensembles with quality finishing - a definite benchmark for a 'one-to'watch' .

Lux Classics by Smalto

Despite the current economic turmoil, French label Smalto delivers the feel of Luxe on all levels.

Well groomed models lounge drinking champagne sprawled in a decadent period environment dawned in sharply tailored outfits for all occasions.

Perhaps the majority these days would rather just do high street shopping, but nevertheless the new affluent market still exists from China, India, Russia, and still hungry for what they may have been missing.
