We have seen tie-dye interpreted in many ways
We have seen tie-dye interpreted in many ways, but Hermes’ take on the clothing-colouring technique certainly ranks right up there in the luxe stakes. For its Spring/Summer 2017 collection, the luxury house created tie-dye patterns on pieces such as suede jackets and silk knits. Similarly fusing summery lightness with subtle sumptuousness, pieces such as grey calfskin separates with finely perforated micropatterns and yellow leather hoodie jackets rounded off the “miscellany of lightness” (to quote the brand’s show notes).
Gone are the days when the red-soled footwear of Christian Louboutin were the purview of shoe-obsessed women. Since launching his men’s collection in 2011, the designer has won his share of male fans with flamboyant designs such as heavily studded sneakers and colourful loafers. Now, these shoe buffs have a new space in which to check out the brand’s latest wares. Its store at Scotts Square features a 1,668 ftinterior designed to look like “a forest in a city” – bronze displays that have developed a green patina channel forest vegetation, while a textured birch wall adds to the organic feel. #01-16/16 Scotts Square.
