Bilboquet, from 1974.

Bilboquet is born in 1974 from an intuition of Paolo Tomei. The concept was to create a state-of-the-art space where innovative and exclusive styles were experimented,for a woman out of the ordinary one but full of charme and elegance. Year after year this 'must' has become so progressively greater, that during the ’90, Paolo decided to open a second adjacent boutique . You can purchase a style from Bilboquet for sure, it is the classical boutique that takes care and knows its historical clients and it realizes and creates, from immediately, a strong connection with the new clientele. Bilboquet...a style.

MM6 is the Latest House to Move its Spring 2016 Show to a Different City

On the heels of big-name designers like Riccardo Tisci and Anthony Vaccarello announcing that they will switch up their Fashion Week cities this season (Givenchy will show in New York instead of Paris, and Versus Versace will bring its collection to London), another major player appears on the London calendar for the first time. MM6, the diffusion line by Maison Margiela — now overseen by Creative Director John Galliano — normally shows in New York, but appears on the official London Fashion Week Calendar that was released on Tuesday, with a presentation lined up for Sunday, Sept. 20.

Qualche istante di imbarazzo, poi con un balzo dalla platea alla passerella, Vivienne Westwood, 74 anni, che in prima fila assisteva alla sfilata della sua collezione autunno/inverno, è accorsa in soccorso della ragazza.
Anche se non sappiamo se la modella è stata poi redarguita bruscamente dietro le quinte, ma sicuramente grazie a Vivienne almeno in passerella si sarà sentita un pò meno sola.

Ultima intervista aYohji Yamamoto

La citazione di Yohji Yamamoto lasciata per Surface non poteva descrivere meglio il suo lavoro. Noi lo abbiamo sempre ammirato sia come stilista che come comunicatore.   “My starting point was wanting to protect a human’s body. This is the beginning, actually hiding women’s bodies. This is about sexuality, about protecting it. From the very beginning of my career I was not very sure that I would become a so-called “fashion designer.” The term “fashion designer” sounded very light.”
