This is a dress I saw in the town Borås in Sweden. In this town they have created what they call a Texile Fashion Center where you can find companies and for instance the Textile University. One of their students has made this Eye catching piece which makes me think of Alexander McQueen.

Design and fashion is influenced by popular culture. And then fashion influences society and popular culture. It is a sort of symbiois where I suppose you don't see where one ends and the other one starts. One thing that is most likely to put its mark on fashion and other design is Game of Thrones. Today when we have so many series on TV and new media like digital media it is not often that a series attracts that much buzz as Game of Thrones have and will. It is down to quality. The production is next to perfect in all aspects, and quality never goes out of style. Season 4 premiered on the 6th of April and will send ripples through popular culture yet again. And we will see the effects of it also in fashion.

Antonio Berardi's clothes for Autumn/Winter for 2014 can be summed up as school girl gone bad. It is a feeling of rocknroll and rebel over the Collection. There are some good pieces and some nose dives. That is to be expected. Even the sun has its spots.

Well, what to say? The menswear of Versace can leave you speechless. Unfortunately seldom for good reasons. When taking a look at the top picture I could wear the blue suit on the left. The other two are not exactly bad but I'm neither twenty nor a popstar. Let's face I don't belong to Versace's target group. For several reasons. The model in the middle as handsome as he is it looks like someone threw up on him. Poor dear. And finally the model in the skimpy swim wear. Not much fabric there. But still very expensive I should believe. A robe is a robe but quite good sandals. Especially if you are going back in time to ancient Greece. But who, in this case, looks at the sandals really? Really?!

Yes, Spring is in the air. And the flowers have started to bloom, and they are not only popping out of the ground but also on the Spring collection for men at Gucci. It is daring to say the least and of course better suited on a youth than any other. And since the flowers are Gucci they do not come cheap. It is colourful and fun, absolutely, but for some reason I prefer my flowers to be in the garden.
