Nicholas K. Spring 2011 Ready To Wear

Spring, spring, spring! Global Warming has definitely made its way into the runways according to Nicholas K. an Ice Age is expected Spring 2011. This collection to me screams Fall, but then again I'm used to past collections. Global warming aside this collection is hobo chic, wearable to the max, and amazing to the eye. The colors are very neutral with a hint of military esque sort of sneaking in. Military boots are definitely here to stay... for a while at least. Yes, the color scheme is not spring at all, and maybe thats why im obsessing over it so much. 

We've seen the 'harem' pant and tights but this reverse-sweater-drapped pant is definitely catching my eye. As well as loose shorts and tapered khakis. Who is down to wear multiple layers and leather jackets this spring? I am down to sweat all day to look this good. 

The outterwear consisted of coats and parkas with oversized hoods, and enlarged collars but what looked like very lightweight material. Underneath the coats, the clothes had a very laid back feel to them. With slouchy tees and oversized shirts like dresses, and oversized cardigans. The collection was very urban New York, almost ruined clothing, simultaneously streetwise, with whats wearable at the moment. I must admitt I'm not entirely familiar with Kunz pasts collections but I approve.

Bleach Turns To Black.

My obsession with blogging really began with blogger but when I found out about tumblr I took a bit of space on that site to fill it with everything my head had to say. Bleached Black is fashion, art, design, music, and everything me. I post my photographs and my latest music obsessions and a little bit of fashion as well. Although Realisme Artificiel focus more on fashion and latest trends or fashion obsessions of mine. I fill like on Tumblr I can post whatever, whenever. So if you'd like to know more about me and feel like this isnt enough feel free to go over my Tumblr.

Lanvin one of Paris oldest and most perstigious house has made an incredible announcement today. The H&M website has provide us with this very deatailed statement, Lanvin and H&M putting rumours to rest as they announce their collaboration. H&M Stamet below.

H&M is proud to announce that its next designer collaboration will be with Lanvin, one of the most influential brands of the 21st century. Designed by Lanvin’s artistic director Alber Elbaz, and menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver the collection will go on sale in around 200 H&M stores. It will be launched November 20th in North America and on November 23rd in the rest of the world. The collection of both womenswear and menswear will be revealed to the world on November 2, just three weeks before the clothes hit the store, making the launch of Lanvin for H&M among the most anticipated fashion events of the year.

"H&M approached us to collaborate, and see if we could translate the dream we created at Lanvin to a wider audience, not just a dress for less. I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public. This has been an exceptional exercise, where two companies at opposite poles can work together because we share the same philosophy of bringing joy and beauty to men and women around the world." Alber Elbaz, artistic director of Lanvin.

"We are thrilled about Lanvin’s collection for H&M, it is such an exciting moment. Lanvin will bring to H&M a luxurious French tradition that is also modern and playful. It is very much a Lanvin collection, using their cut and tailoring, with lots of focus on form and details for both women and men. The launch in November is go ing to be full of wonderful surprises." Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M.

Since joining Lanvin as artistic director in 2001, Alber Elbaz has transformed the Paris-based label, founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, into a fashion powerhouse bursting with ideas and creativity. Alber Elbaz has pioneered there some of the biggest trends of the past decade - ribbon, bows, pearls, raw edges, sumptuous color and metallic embellishment among many others. Alber Elbaz has a mastery of cut and an instinct for cloth which leaves a very personal signature on his work, ensuring that all Lanvin clothes are instantly recognizable. Since the introduction of a new menswear line in 2006, he has also transformed the male wardrobe, bringing a relaxed elegance to men’s clothing which is as special as the womenswear.

Lanvin is the latest brand to collaborate with H&M, with previous collections designed by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons andSonia Rykiel. In a new twist, the Lanvin for H&M collection will be revealed to the world through a special film which will be launched on November 2.
