The Return of The Fendi Baguette

24.01.2019 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

As we reported earlier this season from the SS19 runways, the Fendi Baguette has officially made its comeback.

The history of the baguette dates as far back to 1997 when Silvia Venturini Fendi first made the pitch for a smaller bag in a time where larger bags were leading the market. Of course the feedback the designer received from the idea was not initially positive but nevertheless she stuck with her guts and released the first baguette on the runways of 1997. Initially it was offered with small straps and the double F logos in brown. Since then it has made it’s way from the late 90’s throughout the Sex and The City Era of the 2000’s in additional styles. And it’s now safe to say it is officially back and has made its return with a fabulous intro.

This week the Italian fashion label has launched their latest campaign #BaguetteFriendsForever which includes a series of short films featuring the storylines of inseparable groups of friends around the world throughout one of their daily routines which is centered around the iconic baguette. The first episode, released only yesterday, is titled “The Baguette is Back” and is shot along the vibrant streets of Shangai, China. It stars movie actresses Tan Zhuo and Qiao Xin along with influencers Yu Wei and Yoyo who are filmed during their venture of a girls night out. The movie starts with the women shopping for baguettes and wardrobe at the Fendi store inside IAPM Mall in preparation for a night at the club. Each film carries it’s own style with a slight hint of humour to top it off with Groove Armanda’s My Friend as their soundtrack.  To be released later this month, are also two upcoming films featuring the baguettes’ ventures of Hong Kong and New York. Stayed tuned for more, and visit Fendi to shop.

Moxham x Whistles

26.10.2014 | Fashion | BY:

Twin favourite Moxham has collaborated with ‘it’ high street brand Whistles to create an exclusive eleven-piece collection, released today.

Madeleine, the creative mind behind the London based jewellery and accessories brand, has fused together the sophisticated, clean-line aesthetic we’ve come to know and love from Whistles with her own minimalistic sensibility to construct a range full of simple motifs and geometric shapes in a monochrome palette. The capsule features long necklaces, collars, cuffs, leather clips and a headband – signature Moxham pieces that have been reinterpreted using a W / M motif – that are all made from hand-cut leather and laser-cut metal with a powder coated finish.

Always interpreting the individual, the pieces can be detached and alternated, making each one personal and able to reflect the wearer’s own style. It is this element of design that makes Moxham a brand worth paying attention to.

Moxham x Whistles is now available in stores, as well as online here

Williams Handmade for Kirsty Ward

19.02.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Kirsty Ward is most likely a name you’ve heard of before; if you didn’t catch her interview with yours truly last summer, then you no doubt have previously come across her distinguished statement jewellery and clean considered womenswear pictured on a number of fashion blogs, magazine editorials or even the odd stylish celeb.

When we last spoke to Kirsty she was revealing news about her Spring / Summer ’13 collection, so we thought it was only apt that she’d also share with us her highlights for this season — in particular a unique bag collaboration with fellow British designer, Sarah Williams of Williams Handmade.

“I’ve created several clutch bags in previous collections, however this was something that I’ve always wanted to explore further, so when the opportunity came up to collaborate with Sarah I was super excited,” Kirsty told Twin. “We first met at ITS#9 where we were both finalists in the accessories category but I’ve been a big fan of her work for years now – plus I think our aesthetics work really well together.”

The collection consists of four bag styles in total, all of which feature detachable and interchangeable straps so that the wearer can mix between the colours featured in the chosen pastel palette of pink, blue and grey. Similar to Ward’s own womenswear designs, Sarah’s clean, minimalistic creations form a perfect foundation to the bold signature jewellery pieces that Kirsty has adorned the surfaces and edges with.

The Williams Handmade for Kirsty Ward collection will be showcased along with the rest of Kirsty’s Autumn / Winter ’13 offering at the Vogue Talents Corner, Palazzo Morando, during Milan Fashion Week later this week.

Love Leather

11.01.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Zana Bayne makes pieces for people who aren’t afraid to let their accessories do the talking.

The Brooklyn-based designer handcrafts body harnesses, belts and other accessories worn by the likes of Lady Gaga. Having founded her blog Garbage Dress in 2008, Bayne already has a strong following for her own sense of style, which is composed of Ann Demeulemeester, Rick Owens and lots of black. Both her personal and brand aesthetic showcase a penchant for slightly dark and elegant.

Twin talked to the designer about bullfighting suits and the power of blogs…

What is the design process of a collection from start to finish?
I like to make collections that respond to the one prior, often ‘carrying over’ designs. Sometimes it begins with a color, or shape, or specific body part that I want to highlight. A lot of the time, I think of a certain ‘lack’ or ‘void’ – something that I wish existed, or was more accessible. From there I do a lot of sketching. In the developmental stage, I do a lot of image hoarding; I collect pictures that seem to resonate with my current state of mind, and once there’s enough of them I try to look for themes and patterns.

What inspires your designs in general, and more specifically, your F/W 11 collection?
I like to design with my friends in mind, taking what I do and adapting it to something that would fit their style. I like my work to be wearable for a variety of people, so I definitely keep styling options in mind. For F/W 11, I began with the image of a Torrero & his Traje de Luces (bullfighting suit) – the feelings of strength, pride, and confidant finesse. I also used wider cuts of leather to create bolder lines on the body. The colour palate of red, black, and patent black leather echoed that masculinity.

How has your blog helped you develop your brand?
From the advent of my blog back in 2008, I realized that if used correctly, it could become a very effective portfolio of my point of view. I have always posted my own photographic content, and kept the entries based on my life experiences.

Every step of my business development is chronicled on my blog. I think this openness and visual archive has been a huge help. I’m able to share the process behind the product as well as show how my pieces can be worn in daily life. I think its hard for a lot of new labels to establish consumer trust without years of brand history, so in a sense I have been able to create this through blogging.

What are your future plans and projects with  Zana Bayne Leather?
Right now I’m working on my S/S 12 collection which I will be showing in February (I think seasons are unnecessary for accessories), as well as a few collaborations with designers for their F/W 12 collections. Everything is still made by hand by myself & my studio helpers, so I’m hoping to find a way to relieve some of the labour intensity. We shall see.
