Kingdom Of Style est un des meilleurs blogs de mode que je connaisse. Curieux, éclectique, très fourni, drôle, il est écrit à quatre mains par Queen Marie et Queen Michelle. Ici, le très beau travail de Sophie Hulme et ses inspirations :
This concept for this collection is concealed combat, an armouring of womenswear. This is created by integrating traditional military clothing and detailing into luxury garments. Prime examples include, a fully sequinned military parka, jackets armoured with jets and military M65 jacket with a bow tied in the back.
The result is a luxury look. It is not military or utility as such but has a hard edge.
The collection only includes key pieces, there are no plain basics or staples. These garments are designed to be special and kept,
it is therefore consciously not too trend led. For this reason it is centred around key jackets, coats, bags and hats. S/S 09 will build on this with the introduction of key dresses and jersey pieces.
Each collection will have a chosen trinket that comes with every garment. This season is a whistle inspired by airforce bomber jackets. These will build a growing jewellery line alongside the collection. Various chains and attachments will also be built up
so the customer can collect pieces to be worn together, both integrated into the garments and as statement jewellery pieces.
