I’ve been collecting these images from Galliano’s perfect, gaudy, vaguely-Russia-inspired F/W 2009 tidbits for a few months now, mostly for art and styling reference, but also because they make me happy.

Inspired by Byzantine culture-Dolce & Gabbana, (Fall 2013 Collection).

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, inspired to create the collection (Fall 2013 Collection) from the famous Byzantine mosaics, paying tribute to the Byzantine splendor. Their creations are true works of art, as in the manufacture of clothing, imitated perfectly the art of mosaic, while on jewelery and accessories, they used the filigree (filigree) and the technique of enamel.

Έμπνευση από το Βυζαντινό Πολιτισμό- Dolce & Gabbana, (Φθινοπωρινή κολεξιόν 2013).

Οι Domenico Dolce και Stefano Gabbana, εμπνεύστηκαν για τη δημιουργία της συλλογής τους (Fall 2013 Collection) από τα περίφημα βυζαντινά ψηφιδωτά, αποτίοντας φόρο τιμής στη βυζαντινή μεγαλοπρέπεια. Οι δημιουργίες τους είναι πραγματικά έργα τέχνης,καθώς για την κατασκευή των ενδυμάτων,μιμήθηκαν άψογα την τεχνική του ψηφιδωτού, ενώ για τα κοσμήματα και τα αξεσουάρ, χρησιμοποίησαν την συρματερή τεχνική (φιλιγκράν) και την τεχνική του σμάλτου.

Namibia’s Hipsters: From the sapeurs of Kinshasa, the fashionistas of Lagos and to the streets of Jozi, vintage style is trending in Africa.   

Designer, tailor and stylist Lourens Loux Gebhardt of Loux the Vintage Guru is now collaborating with Khumbala, a group of stylists and designers from Johannesburg, to launch a street-style website that seeks to inspire Africans to step out in style and introduce them to the merits of vintage fashion.

A fashion revolution in the making; “When we collaborate we call ourselves LIA (Love is African), and we’re currently playing a big part by simply inspiring fashionistas around the African continent.”

Usually decked out in well-cut 60’s suits, tweed jackets, round spectacles and trilby hats, Lourens explains, “Many people aren’t interested in wearing vintage, they just see it as used clothing… I manage to dress myself cheaply and end up looking like a million bucks.”
