Collection: LOOK 2 - last season meet last decade

ROLAND MOURET

Roland Mouret, commonly known for his monochromatic designs on occasion strays away and mixes in different patterns. The brand, infamous for its Galaxy dress - if you don’t remember, look into any magazine from around 2005/06, is founded by a creative that prefers to design directly on the model, instead of doing the classic procedure of sketching first and sewing later. As a French designer without any significant formal training, his brand is now located in the UK, to be more specific, in London. This asymmetric blouse can be found in his 2019 fall ready-to-wear collection, look 10. Inspiration for this season stems from preloved pieces and gender fluidity it could not be a better fit to end up in a second-hand store itself. Featuring a cropped, open back while the collar and the sleeves can be tied up shows a dedication to detail as well as expert usage and knowledge of the materials draping.

COMME CA DESCALES

A pleated vintage wrap mini skirt by the little-known french brand Comme Ca Descales as well was designed by an expert of the unexpected details. The neutral grey-beige coloring and elegant, elongating thin pleats create a flattering and elegant staple. The plain front of the skirt is contrasted by a pleated backside for a shape that doesn’t bulk. The closure in the front offers a double layer of material and two buttons to secure the garment safely on the wearer. For the upcoming spring/summer numerous pleated mini skirts could be spotted from behind our screens or the front row.

JIL SANDER

Between the back of the skirt being pleated and the cropped shirt, the more classic front of the pieces is mirrored in this German, minimalistic design by Jill Sander. This icon of less returned to her namesake brand in 2012 and led it to newfound glory, of which these shoes are a prime example. This fashion house makes a point of focussing on simple and clean shapes created of the highest quality materials. The interestingly designed heel in white, gold and grey is shaped like a pedal stone, holding up a work of art. As another detail, decorating the front: a golden ankle bracelet is to be seen. These shoes have not been on the runway, but are estimated to be around 2018, based on the aforementioned ankle decorations.

MARC JACOBS

A Marc Jacobs Stam bag in olive green is another understated piece for a set, bare of any visible logos. The retro design of the bag in question and its quilted leather used to be an it-bag of the mid-2000s. Resting omnipresent in the crook of the arm of every it-girl the bag with is Mary Poppins depths is practical and versatile. First seen on the runway of fall 2005 and carried over with small alterations to the runway fall 2006 it has been for a while.

After years of wearing mini bags, many have been relieved to see the comeback of big bags this season and this particular style is predicted by us to be in line for a comeback just like many other bags from the same time period.

CHRISTIAN DIOR *reworked*

Last but not least a Christian Dior coat, from the era of John Galliano. This beautiful coat had a silk lining that didn’t stand the test of time and had to be exchanged. The design on the other had passed said test and is as elegant as ever. For a time at Dior that was known for opulence and extravagance, this piece is rather understated. Its tapered cut, reinforced by two pockets, beautifully shapes the body. The prominently featured covers of the pockets are reminiscent of the hip pads worn in France in the 18 century, in a modernized and flattering way. Overall the coat could be inspired as well by French menswear from the same period, some design inspirations from Marie Antionette's time cannot be denied. Not looking back so far in fashion history: fall 2009, ready to wear collection. The buttons of the here-to-be-seen coat allow us to estimate this garment around the aforementioned collection.
