At NEHERA the priority is comfort. Each product is carefully considered, from the tactile materials, to the exemplary craftsmanship, such
that every item evokes a sense of ease, purpose, and understated elegance.
Clothes are first pared back to their essence, reduced and refined to the tenets of utility. Then they are imbued with certain tenderness, warmth, and optimism that has defined NEHERA from the very beginning.
The culture at NEHERA champions vitality and spontaneity through
its dynamic and collective approach to design. The collections, however, still feel grounded and unassuming. It is the balance between emotive gestures and restrained classicism, in terms of silhouette or colour palette, that results in a unique spectrum of possibility, a wardrobe of potentiality.
NEHERA endeavours to establish signatures that are identifiable by way of their subtlety and straightforwardness - products that are wearable, honest, and above all, quietly compelling.
A.F.VANDEVORST is a Belgian fashion brand, based in Antwerp.
Designers An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx met in 1987 on their first day of school at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Ten years later, they set up their company Blixa and presented their first collection as A.F.VANDEVORST in Paris.
The designer duo is known for their many collaborations, unique installations and artistic pursuits. From Biennale-installations to traveling guerrilla stores, their work has been critically acclaimed around the world. In line with their artistic focus and dedication to craftsmanship, A.F.VANDEVORST is proud to show their work during Haute Couture in Paris.
The flagship store - designed together with the Antwerp-based scenographer Bob Verhelst - is based in the heart of Antwerp. Not only did it become a personal statement about the essence of the brand, it also creates a space to welcome costumers into the A.F.VANDEVORST universe.
For 2018, A.F.VANDEVORST is working on retrospective exhibitions and on the 24th of January presented "ENDE NEU" at Galerie Yvon Lambert
in Paris, a retrospective book that celebrates the brand's 20th anniversary.
Marvais is the brainchild of two lifelong friends, Marie Libeert and Valérie Vanermen, who share a passion for creation, invention and design in all its forms. But it was the desire to see their own imaginations come to life that sparked this new venture.
Marvais bags are first and foremost an embodiment of their taste, created for their type of woman. She is not defined by age, but rather by her vibrant spirit and the easy way she can pull off any look. A trendsetter, she never goes unnoticed, with effortlessly curated outfits and unaffected elegance. She is smart and slightly offbeat, never taking herself too seriously.
Designed in Belgium, Marvais bags are made from the finest materials and are impeccably detailed by the best in the industry, hitting that elusive balance between edginess and restraint. The mix of colours and textures in iconic and intriguingly simple shapes make them the perfect addition to any wardrobe.
It started with a friendship, a mutual understanding and aspiration, blossoming into a partnership with all the ease and authenticity that would eventually define the product. The Marvais brand reflects the unexpected joy of discovering something new, only to realize that it was exactly what you had wanted all along.
The rebellious yet fashion-conscious aesthetic of skate and basketball culture first shaped Yang Li's interest in fashion. After graduating from Central Saint Martins and interning under Raf Simons, the London-based designer launched his inaugural men's and women's collections in Spring 2012. Channeling an ethos of understated rebellion, Li reworks utilitarian, urban staples with elongated proportions and the clean tailoring of 90's minimalism.
From the very heart of Madrid, Marlota stamps the Made in Spain label to each and every piece of clothing. Defending the local savoir-faire
is one of the priorities of a brand who maintains a very high quality control. Protofypes are conceived and developed as unique pieces using traditional tailoring and sewing techniques without
losing th strong and innovative touch that defines Marlota's style.
Each piece is unique, thanks to the commitment, implication and knowledge of the people envolved in the creation of the garments. The conception, matierals and manufacturers are part of a special process that guarantees the quality of the product. Keeping a close eye on every step of this process is the key to reach these high standards.
Over the years, the values of the brand have settles: the quest of singular fabrics, to investigate new proposals, and above all, to take care for every single details is essential to maintain the trust of the women who wear Marlota's clothes.
The juncture between masculinity and femininity is perhaps the most significant of JOSEPH’s influences. How to bend and rework the boyish for a women’s wardrobe remains a constant focus.
It was a very organic progression that the brand would begin to offer a complete men’s collection, and in September 2013 Creative Director Louise Trotter appointed Mark Thomas as Head of Menswear. Together they have worked on translating the core values and gestures of the JOSEPH brand into a wardrobe of luxury essentials for men.
British-born Thomas joined JOSEPH following his position as Head Menswear Designer at GIVENCHY, Paris. The Central Saint Martin’s alumni also designed for acclaimed menswear brands Neil Barrett and Burberry beforehand.
The idea of a practical, elevated uniform is integral here too; another of JOSEPH’s cornerstones.
Each season a crucial framework of wardrobe icons — relaxed tailoring, a great coat, sportif separates — are reworked and shown at London Fashion Week Men’s. The collection is a coming together of heritage, utility and modernity a common language, shared.
Band of Outsiders, founded in Los Angeles in 2004, is an iconic menswear brand offering a complete wardrobe to a vast group of individuals. Everyday wear, underlining personality, simplifying life.
Brand inspirations include south California, Americana, Hollywood and pop art, a heritage the new team in London blends with savile row tailoring and the finest European fabrics.
The core beliefs are humour and inclusivity, they invite people to be part of something. With that in mind, the rules band plays by, are
straight-forward. This is the label for men in search of day-to-day high quality, a perfect fit and a fashion twist, that don't take themselves all too seriously.
