ANDREAS MURKUDIS anticipates the upcoming season with new brands in his repertoire.
ALDO MARIA CAMILLO, formerly at Valentino, Ermenegildo Zegna, Cerruti, and Berluti is an admirer of Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela and ranks among the rising stars within the art of contemporary suit making. His beautifully tailored creations come in dark colours, with wide lapels and a distinctively casual demeanour. ALDO MARIA CAMILLO presented his first collection in Florence in 2019.
„The collection practically consists of favourite pieces. The cabin coat, the shearling jacket and the boots are perfected. Their design is both bold and consistent. I wish more collections would make such a clear statement, so that the designer can actually say ‘These are my best pieces‘“.
Copenhagen native CECILIE BAHNSEN studied at the Royal College of Art in London, worked with Parisian couture houses, and was an LVMH prize finalist in 2017. Her dresses are entirely handmade, feature traditional craftsmanship such as crochet, and outstanding attention to details. Her designs come in voluminous shapes reminiscent of COMME DES GARÇONS’ Rei Kawakubo, and are of the most delicate nature whilst not lacking a contemporary feel.
In addition to the existing range of Korean labels represented by ANDREAS MURKUDIS, we’re happy to welcome three new Korean labels to our repertoire.
SanDaWha‘s cosmetics aim to counter air pollution with the eponymous Camellia Japonica (Korean: SanDaWha) from the UNESCO protected volcanic island of Jeju. The Camellia oil is extracted through a patented system involving nitrogen. The oil encourages collagen synthesis, counters inflammations, and increases the density and humidity of the skin making it look smoother and plumper. Furthermore, the high concentration of antioxidants in Camellia promises protection from the effects of ageing.
BOURIE was founded in 2014 and creates annual women’s collections, designed and developed in Seoul by designer Eun-Hye Jo. BOURIE’s designs were exhibited by ANDREAS MURKUDIS during ‘Seoul’s 10Soul’ presenting 10 emerging Korean fashion designers. Their conceptual, experimental approach to what they call “sensual” tailoring is strongly influenced by art, film, and popular culture.
Korean label LE 17 SEPTEMBRE heralds simplicity. Long-sleeved and with occasional twists in the fabric, their full-length dresses, knickers, and coats come in moderate and natural colours and feature precise tailoring drawing outstandingly elegant lines and silhouettes.
Fashion label LOW CLASSIC produces utilitarian, ready-to-wear designs with feminine, architectural cuts. Their designs feature long legs and sleeves, an earthy colour palette and, besides their clothing, includes shoes and accessories. LOW CLASSIC is based in Seoul, their look is emancipated and naturally elegant
