chloe Fall 2016 captures an evocative mix of innocence and sensuality, where the spirit of Balthus’ paintings and Carlo Mollino’s Polaroid girls meets the grunge attitude of a young Björk. The See by Chloé gang unite within this collection, remixing a flirty touch of ‘flou’ with utility shapes in rich, unexpected textures. Checks, stripes, and animalia prints clash against jacquards, denim, and lace – with a layered look that pair voluminous outerwear with relaxed separates. This season’s autumnal colour palette and baroque details, of delicate smocking, needlepoint lace, and tiered ruffles of crepe and cotton, counterbalance the tomboy style of wide-leg patch pocket trousers, henley t-shirts, must-have knits and workwear jackets in corduroy, indigo denim, and leather.
Japanese Designer Rie Hosokai Turns Balloons Into Inflatable Couture Rie Hosokai Balloon Fashion Hosokai constructs each piece by hand, but she admits it can be difficult to account for the amount of air when managing the size and volume of her dresses. Although the materials are inexpensive—about 9 cents per balloon—each featherweight (and biodegradable) creation carries a hefty price tag ranging from $1,930 to $3,860. Hosokai began her career as a florist before venturing into the world of balloon art and starting her own company, Daisy Balloon. With her recent win at Belgium’s annual “Millennium Jam” balloon festival and over 20 wedding dresses sold since Daisy Balloon launched two years ago, it’s clear that Hosokai’s unique take on fashion is taking off—so long as she steers clear of sharp objects, that is. + Rise Hosokai [Via Reuters]

There are a few brands still holding it down when it comes to graphic tee shirts but fewer are making much of an impression as they enter the overcrowded market. Zatoon is a company that caught my eye as their wares look almost nothing like most of what I’ve seen lately. The artwork for the shirts is wildly detailed and bizarre. The attention to detail is really impressive and I can’t imagine one of their tees not making an impression. “For our Summer 2012 collection, we worked with British illustrator Adrian Johnson.
