Dear Shaded Viewers,
For the past few seasons WHITE created 12 hours which is a space dedicated to one designer for each of the days of the White Fair. The designers have a great exhibition space where they can meet the press and buyers for 12 hours. Todd Lynn had the space today and we enjoyed a little chat about how his business has been growing over these past few years.
Richard Nicoll did his best collection to date and the press and buyers loved it.
Festival d’Hyeres winner Sandra Backlund previews a bit of her Spring. If you have not seen it yet, she has the cover of Surface magazine this month. I enjoyed looking at it at Malpensa today.
Jens Laugesen did his first graphic ethnic collection mixing traditional gypsey looks with Pierre Cardin inspirations and turning it all on end to come up with a totally personal and very strong collection.
Marios Schwab’s and Albino d’Amato’s handbags are part of the Serapian Milano first project giving designers the opportunity to produce their first handbag. Other participants in this project include Richard Nicoll, Albino D’Amato and Vincent Du Sartel. www.serapian.com

Barbara Grispini is the muse of some of London’s most talented young designers. Kristian Aadnevil is among them, Robb and I could not help but imagine Barbara in one of his black bustier dresses.
