The comfort of contradiction.
Composed layers, seemingly spontaneous and deliberated. Alternation between precious and pragmatic: creased, cushiony and fluffy.

Bottega Veneta Winter 24 Show
Prada FW24 Womenswear Collection
The Fall/Winter 2024 Prada collection by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons embeds fashion with fragments of histories, in an exploration of notions of beauty, of a contemporary world formed by memories. There is a romance, with the past.
Danshan's Apollo Jumper in action
Danshan stands for a more progressive and accepting world. The Apollo Jumper (black) seen here is knitted, which is eco-friendly especially compared with cut and sew. The beauty of this knit is it can be unraveled and return to yarn state to be recycled into another composition.
Skating with SABOT
Sabot means clog in French and thereby derives the word sabotage. By creating garments ourselves and support small local textile businesses we reclaim the power to express ourselves beyond the turning machinery of big-fashion industries.

New Balance x Miu Miu 2024 Campaign
New Balance and Miu Miu team up again for a new collaboration, now with a design based on the iconic New Balance 530 running shoe.
Peris Adolwi, Julie Hoomans and Florine Wildeboer star in the accompanying still and moving image campaign. Stolen moments are captured against a domesticated background - white walls, blank phone screens and crumpled white sheets – onto which viewers are invited to project their thoughts and dreams. The mood is intimate, relaxed, playful, from movement and gesture to shoes and clothes.
Launched in 1992, the New Balance 530 was originally conceived as a performance shoe. Its minimal design and luxurious suede, leather and mesh fabrication, made it a cult sneaker lovers' favorite. True to the Miu Miu spirit, this interpretation of the model is deconstructed: a classic is disrupted, its proportions reinvented with the introduction of an ultra-flat sole. The sneaker’s name - the 530 SL - is drawn from the fact that it is also super light.
Two versions of the shoe are presented, one in distressed suede in a warm, natural color palette and the other in unprocessed suede and mesh in classic black and white. The effect is lived in – aged. Laces come in a variety of materials including leather and sailing cord. Those wearing the New Balance X Miu Miu 530SL are invited to choose between them, to adapt them to their personal style.
In each case, comfort, character, confidence and ease are paramount as the heart and history of both names come together seamlessly.

Atelier Eveil Ludique ~ upcycled necklaces
Atelier Eveil Ludique is a fashion brand created by Mirco Bercelli in 2019, in Paris, France.
The idea of an artisanal brand working solely with second hand clothes and discarded garments as raw materials came about after living & working in the fashion industry in New Delhi, India. During this stay, Mirco Bercelli witnessed first hand the conditions in which fast fashion clothes are produced. Then came the idea for a brand which would answer our creative anxieties: can we create without producing more waste? How do we have a positive impact on the environment while working in the fashion industry?
Integrating this willingness to change how clothes are made, infused with black metal & deconstructed clothing inspirations, Atelier Eveil Ludique was born. Every garment produced is one less piece of trash in our landfill.
ABL draws inspiration from Mexico's intense working culture as well as its equally intense leisure activities and social lifestyle. Designer, Alvaro Barrera Lozano, designs with versatility and practicality in mind allowing the wearer to modify a garment and to morph throughout different environments.
