Are you heading to The Big Apple for Thanksgiving or the Christmas holidays? Here's some special news for you:
Hunter recently announced the opening of its first pop-up store in New York City. Located at 108 Wooster Street in SoHo, the Hunter SoHo
Pop-Up opened its doors on November 4th 2015 – just in time for winter and the holiday gifting season.
Led by Creative Director Alasdhair Willis, the concept for the 2,926 ft² store was developed uniquely for the pop-up space. Taking inspiration from Hunter’s first flagship store, which opened on London’s Regent Street a year ago, the pop-up will also draw on other key references from the progressive British heritage brand, bringing the unmistakable spirit of Hunter to the heart of New York City.
The pop-up will include a full assortment of product from both Hunter Original and Hunter Field including footwear, outerwear, accessories and Kids.
The Hunter SoHo Pop-Up will be open until mid-February 2016.
Embracing #TheBeautyOfImperfection has long been the idea that has inspired D. EFECT collections. This season, Creative Director Egle Ziemyte wanted to explore what the beauty of imperfection looks like in the modern and digitalized world of today. Inspired by digital art and individuals with distinct personalities, Egle’s new collection has plenty of defects. All made on purpose.
D.EFECT SS16 uses prints created by Taiwanese- born, Berlin-based artist Jennis Li Cheng Tien. Cheng Tien is known for taking random portraits of people she sources from the internet and using digital manipulation to make those images completely unrecognizable.
“Her series of works “Have A Nice Day” inspired my creative process deeply. I often feel like we we are masters of manipulation: tweaking this and that and aiming for perfection. However, it’s really easy to lose your identity and become unrecognizable. I loved the works of Jennis. Visually, they are so beautiful. But then there is this other side to them, showing exactly how too much can make someone faceless.” – explains Ziemyte.
“I am really looking forward to the results of our exciting collaboration, as fashion is an important source of inspiration for this series of works. Both Egle’s designs and my works question the idea of personal identity and its fleeting characteristic in our modern times. We are not criticizing it as we can all be blamed for relentlessly seeking perfection. Instead, our views on individuality are diluted with a pinch of irony.”, Cheng Tien says about working with D.EFECT.
The results of this collaboration are styles covered with beautiful, vivid prints that form new shapes as the wearer moves.
The core of D.EFECT designs for SS16 are relaxed yet chic styles with details that intrigue: exaggerated ruffles, misplaced buttons, rips purposely made or asymmetrical lengths. These unique details show off the DNA of D.EFECT and were also created to highlight the DNA of the person wearing the collection.

The oil painting ‘La Lecture’ that originally inspired Camilla and Marc's SS16 collection depicts Picasso's secret 17 yr old mistress and muse, asleep with a book upon her lap. The painting not only was a huge art work, it also led to the demise of Picasso’s marriage, after his wife saw it at a retrospective exhibition and realised that the facial features were not her own.
Many believe that the image captures his romantic obsession with his young muse and is meant to be a sensual and erotic work of art. It is created in a very lyrical manner, using bright colors, light lines, and an overall airy quality to the painting. The painting has been described as being his most colourful, joyous, and well composed and was painted in a period that has now been coined his "lovestruck” period.
Camilla and Marc has drawn upon the aspects of frivolity, romance, seduction and strength to build a collection that is very sure of itself, while still having a bit of fun on the side.
Silhouettes are contemporary, feminine, strong and sophisticated with just a hint of seduction.
There are highlights of mischievous layering and stacked proportions amongst an aray of easy shirt dresses, elongated draping and simple structure. In this collection- femininity, sophistication, frivolity and strength should all be of equal parts and measures.
Key colours include Saffron, Marine, Crimson, Champagne, French navy, Crème, Black, wood rose.
Fabrics are tactile, textural and forward. The fabric did the talking this season, Camilla and Marc kept the finishes and techniques simple. Its all about feeling, touching, and seeing the cloth for what it is.
