SCHMANCY Style!

SCHMANCY Style: A Preview To SCHMANCY
(Photos by: Binzento Vincente)
YYC Glenbow Museum's 2013's major event SCHMANCY is finally here in less than two weeks! A little preview example of the SCHMANCY experience was given to our YYC folks past Thursday at Belgo Brasserie. It's called the SCHMANCY Style! I am sure some of my readers may recall me talking about it from my previous post HERE. The party turned out to be a HUGE success. Tickets were completely sold out, and we even had people trying to come in in the midst of the party. Holt Renfrew YYC and Sophia Models International gave our audience a fabulous fashion show - and of course the event wouldn't happen without the generous sponsors: Belgo BrasserieWAX, Chelsea Kindrachuk Photography, DJ Mikey DaRoza, Lil' Pink Daisy and Jerome Salon. Our social media team had worked hard to tie everything together, and making sure that all of our guests enjoyed the party. NOW - just imagine all the excitement at SCHMANCY Style x1000 + George Stroumboulopoulos!
There will be a series of SCHMANCY promo videos launching starting this Thursday January 31st, which Binzento Vincente and the fabulous production team of Odessa Bennett, Insomnia Art, and Paul Spenard Eye Squared Productions creatively worked together. Stay tuned!!

Bernhard Willhelm AW13/14 and Lanvin AW13/14

AW13/14 Paris Men's Fashion Week came to an end few days ago. I still wanted to look at two very distinct collections that were showcased toward the end of the week.

1. Bernhard Willhelm
During fashion week I’m always eager to see works by Vivienne WestwoodJean Paul Gaultier and Thom Browne, because they always put a collection that is rather unexpected, and full of surprising elements. What I really meant to say is, I really love avant garde designs. They are not necessarily functional, nor would I think I am able to wear them on a regular basis, but it’s inspiring to see these designers think “outside the box” and execute a collection that represents their states of the arts. Bernhard Willhelm AW13/14 is one of these collections that I won’t hesitant to place it in the “avant garde” category. The overall presentation incorporated futuristic punk/rocker element, much reminded me pop-culture Japanese manga/anime series JoJo Bizarre Adventure. It’s very vibrant, and focus highly on animated prints. There are a few interesting pieces, but I wouldn’t say I love them. I think I understood the theme behind this collection, however I find it difficult to capture cohesiveness.


2. Lanvin
Lanvin – to me I always feel a sense a connection of romanticism with this French high fashion house. AW13/14 showcased classic French monsieur attire, and subtle modern aristocrat vibe. The well crafted tailored work complemented by intricate leather materials further portrayed time-less designs. Various shades of grey were used to interpret Lanvin’s inspiration of this coming A/W. Modern sheer colorful dress shirts, and 1800’s inspired French style-inspired footwear interlinked ideas of two very different eras.
