RODEBJER DRESS AUDA

The Rodebjer SS19 collection is inspired by our Swedish heritage, the craft, the flora, the beauty embodied by icon Ingrid Bergman and the tantalizing concept of 'Swedish sin’.
The Auda dress features the iconic “Ros och Lilja” (Rose & Lily) print, created by Swedish artist Gocken Jobs in 1946, exclusively adapted for the first time in twenty years.

California Dreaming

Based around simple geometry, clean lines and airy construction - the Kaufmann House is one of the most famous buildings by Richard Neutra. Its prominent features include slatted metal walls, which create breezy indoor-outdoor spaces alongside landscaping with large boulders, cacti, palms and sandy gardens. A color palette of gold ochers and smoggy desert hues evokes Southern California’s paradise and land of opportunity.

The Frida Kahlo Museum, better known as “Casa Azul” (Blue House) is located in the center of Mexico City. The house acquired by her parents, originally a white structure – was painted in an intense blue color known as “Kahlo Blue" after Frida started using it as her residence and art studio.

Isaac Mizrahi | Sui Generis
 

A tribute to the visionary American fashion designer, performer and entrepreneur Isaac Mizrahi, who is releasing his new book I.M.: A Memoir today – and for whom I am very fortunate to have worked for. Featuring some of his most iconic designs – often uniting opposites: evening and sportswear; formal and casual; couture and mass market – with his unique position at the intersection of high style and popular culture.

Sketch for Kitchen Sink Pink Dress, Fall 2006

The mixed use of natural and synthetic, high-end and mass-market fabrics is a striking feature of Isaac’s work. Kitchen Sink Pink is a cascade of shades in a rosy palette, inspired by the pink neon sculptures of Dan Flavin.

Elevator Pad Gown, Spring 2005

Workhorse elevator padding used by movers inspired Mizrahi. He appropriated the quilting technique, but elevated the shipping blanket in a patchwork of blue, green, gray and silver silk. The bodice was shaped from grosgrain ribbons, using heat molding.

Extreme Kilt, Fall 1989

“Everyone I admire has done a tartan collection: Perry Ellis, Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood. I tried to do this without taking it too seriously.” Isaac’s visual pun converts the Scottish kilt into a strapless floor-length gown, with buckles repeated up to the bustline.

The Real Thing, Spring 1994

The Coke can makes an improbable appearance on the runway: Mizrahi used an elaborate process to create these custom paillettes from real Coca-Cola cans. He worked with the charity We Can, which employed homeless New Yorkers to collect cans to recycle; these were shipped to the sequin-maker Langlois-Martin in Paris, where they were cut into paillettes that were then sent to India to be sewn onto dresses. The result is a high-fashion, nearly weightless modern take on a ubiquitous American icon

This dress reveals its exoskeleton with exposed ribbing in the bodice, horsehair interfacing at the bustline and grosgrain at the waist. The “dead rose”-color satin was inspired by a gown worn by Deborah Kerr in the musical film The King and I. Isaac sent the movie to the textile house in Italy to have the color perfectly matched.

The Baker's House
The Baker’s House installation by Färg & Blanche
 

One of my favorites from Stockholm Design Week was the French-Swedish design duo Färg & Blanche’s very personal exhibition The Baker’s House, showcased in Emma’s great, great grandfather’s grande apartment from 1889. The setting provided a striking backdrop for the studio’s experimental and playful new designs inspired by the family history and the Knäckebröd factory they had back in the time.
