George Styler

March 1, 2014
Serbian designer George Styler debuted in 2012 at the Dutch Fashionclash festival with a knitwear collection that mixed punk and Balkan elements. With knitwear as a continued focus for his creation, Styler consolidated his success at the Fashion Scout showcase at the recent London Fashion Week with his NetWork collec­tion, a colorful and multicultural work playing with the idea of networks created as much from knitting as through social interaction.
Incorpo­rating a traditional Western Serbian technique of hand knitting into his contemporary designs, Styler presented vibrant, glittering outfits with spectacular headpieces created by Ucha Hair. You’ve got to love the fresh and ambitious – if not revolutionary – looks that new designers bring to fashion; they seem less concerned with commercial success, making them all the more inspiring. Styler is worth keeping an eye on.


Silly Sunday Style: Miniature Western Hat

"I spend my Sunday afternoons dressing up for nothing. I don't actually go anywhere."

I guess I need to rethink my headline for the Silly Sunday Posts, because lately I am going outside with my outfits and today everybody was smiling at my hat!


Cropped Sweater

Cropped Top

March 1, 2014
My favorite piece for this summer is definitely the cropped sweater. Now you might think that all you need to do is dig out that little short top you still have from the ‘90s … but no, the new short tops are contemporary and classy. They work especially well when combined them with a high-waisted skirt or pants, since let’s be honest, displaying your belly button is something we should leave to teenagers.
Show­ing your upper waist, on the other hand, can be sexy and stylish. Feeling good about revealing your stomach can be a good motivation for get­ting in shape as the warmer months approach. Try an ensemble made out of a non-sporty material like knitted rayon. The new Calvin Klein Resort spring/summer collection displays a spate of cropped sweatshirts, and I am sure the more affordable brands will have them in store just in time. Another spring is ahead of us!
