Frampesca: felpe grigie, tessuti preziosi e stampe audaci

Come realizzare il sogno di tutte coloro che vorrebbero vestire comodamente anche nelle occasioni più glam?

E’ da questa domanda che nel 2013 nasce Frampesca, brand d’avanguardia originario di Vicenza, che ha saputo trasformare il classico felpone grigio – sì, quello stile skater – in un capo assolutamente chic e iper femminile.

Mixando tagli semplici e colori basici con tessuti …

MBFW Berlin A/W 2012 – PERRETSCHAAD

If you’ve been to a runway show, then you know it’s an hour of anticipation, drinks, the fashionables swarming through the lounge, and photographers snapping away. But this year we at POLKADOT were invited to shoot backstage for PERRETSCHAAD‘s A/W 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. We met the whole crew at 3pm behind …

MBFW Berlin A/W 2012 – ESCADA SPORT

On a beautiful blue-skied January morning, Escada Sport kicked off the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with their A/W 2012 collection. We’re presented with a seeming disarray of patterns, cuts, and textures. But since Margaretha and Wolfgang Ley’s first 1978 collection show “ESCADA – Sporty Elegance,” the brand has been linked with a metropolitan femininity that doesn’t …

MBFW Levi Skate Park + VANDEVORST

This past Saturday, we spent the day between the Levi skate mini-bowl and the official Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tent. What a contrast but equally action packed! Frontside 180s, Pop Shove-its, Grinds, and Backsides, from 3pm, the skaters keep dropping in. 90s music blares across the air and the atmosphere screams Venice, Boardwalk, Dogtown and …

MBFW Berlin – Perret Schaad SS2012

Parting from their repertoire of neutral colors with a dash of bold highlight, PerretSchaad now works this season with an array of yellows, greens, and red presented in large scale folds, pockets, and diagonal dagger slashes. In that light, we at POLKADOT asked a few faces to provide us with keywords to describe PerretSchaad’s Spring/Summer …

MBFW 2011 – BLLACK NOIR

As the closing act to MBFW 2011, BLLACK NOIR didn’t disappoint! As per some unspoken German fashion law, we have the obligatory black. But suppressed to simple skin tight garments, rigid and architectural, and combined with their highlights: pearly white marble laced with smoky gray veins or silky navy. The designs sinuously billows across the bodies …

MBFW 2011 – VLADIMIR KARALEEV

You can almost imagine the death knell ringing, ushering the deceased, with Vladimir Karaleev’s collection for MBFW 2011. This Bulgarian designer rejects traditional cuts and presents geometric silhouettes with an underlying theme of gravity, or perhaps a seriousness of life. Karaleev softens the darkness with muted blues, olive greens, and pale browns. The garments fall from …

MBFW 2011 – Plauener Spitze + Irene Luft

We witness a german winter and yet the onset of spring with this year’s show from Plauener Spitze in collaboration with Irene Luft. Or perhaps a contemporary take on Natoire’s “Le Reveille de Venus”? Transparency and opacity intersect as the designers play a hide and seek game with the primary use of lace. The absolute lack …
