Italian architect Fabio Ferrillo has given new life to an abandoned early 20th-Century blacksmith’s workshop in Milan, by transforming it into the new MSGM fashion headquarters. The original space was seriously run-down, but it’s crude and post-industrial aesthetic is now it’s most fascinating and contemporary aspect.
Scanlan Theodore’s newest stores – in Sydney’s Paddington and The Strand Arcade, and Melbourne’s Armadale – have been designed by Sydney based practice, Meacham Nockles McQualter. Like the iconic Australian fashion label, the architects approached these retail fit-outs with the same commitment to simple, modern classic design, centring around beautiful materials and attentive craftsmanship.
Yuko Nagayama & Associates with landscape designer Toshiya Ogino have created this gobsmacking showroom for the Japanese leatherwear company Sisii in Kobe, Japan. The designers have literally turned the space upside-down and inside-out, crafting a completely unconventional interior. This retail showroom is a case study for out-of-the-box thinking. From the lush internal courtyard and trees in the interior, sloping walls, the changing levels, the display of clothes – every single element and every single moment challenges the norm, and defies the rules.

I spotted this dreamy fashion editorial in the current issue of Harper’s Bazaar China called “Dream of the Dress”. I love the surreal, fairytale-seque feel of these images – the clothes, the set, the hair & make up all work perfectly together to create a little parallel reality that equally appeals to both my “grown up” self and the “big kid” that’s still very much inside…
