In September, Who's Next will introduce 13 designers from all over the world, gathered in two areas of the trade show devoted to young designers, Fast and Fresh.
These 13 "trend-forecasters" young talents were spotted by Who's Next's team's expert eye on the Who's Next Blog, a brand new discovery and exchange platform devoted to the young creation's best emissaries.
I had a look at these designers profiles and I'm currently loving two of them. Here are some pictures from their past collections, while waiting for their S/S 2010 ones which will be presented from September 3rd to 6th, during the coming Who's Next trade show in Paris.
LEW is the acronym for Kim Lemans and Merel Wicker who met in 2001 at the Amsterdam Rietveld Academy. After working for various fashion houses, they decided to launch their own label in 2006. Their concept: patchwork clothes in fresh and powerful colors, flowing and light lines for a very delicate and feminine figure. Their motto "Why make it simple when it can be complex?" shows in their will to confront two opposite fashion worlds: streetwear and haute couture.
Beautiful sherbet colors and silky textures here...
Anuschka Hoevener works and lives in Berlin after starting out in London and New York. In 2004, she opened her own studio/showroom. Her collections give way to pure and simple lines however presenting slight alterations for an always-original figure. Ornamental details, pleats and creases or paddings liven up each piece of clothing. For the Summer 2010, our young designer favors flowing lines and lightness for a both urban and easy look, in shades of green, white, gray and stonewashed blue.
Definitely intellectual yet feminine...
