Getting to know Jae Kim of JAEHA

28.04.2016 | Fashion | BY:

After moving to London in 2010, Kim gained experience working in the Mary Katrantzou studio before studying at Central St Martins under the late Louise Wilson OBE. Carving out his own aesthetic, he is known for combining abstract forms with layering and texture.

Tell us about how you started designing…
When I was 17, I saw all these girls sewing up their ball dresses for their end of year high school ball – pure polyester moment. They needed help – so I decided to take fashion as one of my subjects in high school back in New Zealand.

Look18

Why did you decide to move to London?
I met Peter Pilotto and Jean-Pierre Braganza at Mango El Boton competition in Barcelona. Braganza told me I should come to London – so I sent my application to Louise Wilson at Central St Martins MA, and was accepted.

How would you describe your brand? 
Premium contemporary womenswear – visually striking garments that combine bold, androgynous cuts with a care free, wearable style.

Look17

What’s the story behind the AW16 collection? 
Modern pre-Raphaelite women’s wardrobe meets Wes Anderson.

What’s the most valuable advice you have been given? 
Collaboration is good when it’s needed.

Where do you see your brand in five years? 
Kate Middleton’s wardrobe. Hopefully people can pronounce ‘JAEHA’ correctly by then.

Caine

Mark of Caine

11.04.2016 | Fashion | BY:

Caine London is the new cult denim brand on the scene, brought to you by musician/stylist duo, Matt Allchin and Hayley Caine.

The AW16 collection, ‘Rub-A-Dub’, consists of handcrafted denim jackets and jeans as well as embroidered sweaters and shirts, and is inspired by everyone’s favourite place: the pub. As a concept, it takes you on a cheerful crawl from ‘The Rising Sun’ to ‘The Half Moon,’ where you’ll shoot some pool and try your luck on the fruit machine; which, coincidentally, is a print which features on one of their shirts.

Combining ‘ye olde pub’ references with their ’90s grunge silhouette, we want to join their party…

Caine

How did you meet?
We met in 2013 in a pub in Peckham, Matt had been up all night at a friends party and had a picture of Martin Sheen in his pocket. Hayley was so impressed she hasn’t left him alone since.

Tell us about your collection: ‘Rub-A-Dub’…
The collection, like our meeting is based around the good old-fashioned English boozer. We used some of our favourite pub signs and names as inspiration. We’re constantly being inspired by things around us that don’t seem to be there or appreciated anymore. Our last collection was based on Canal Art and this time we were drawn to the signs above old English pubs, this again seems to be a way of life that is disappearing. It’s hard to find a pub that you would recognise as a traditional pub these days, we wanted to celebrate this.

Caine

What’s in the name?
It’s cheeky really it is cockney rhyming slang for ‘pub’. Other options were ‘nuclear sub’ or ‘battle cruiser’ – boozer – but they didn’t seem appropriate or fun enough!

Which are your favourite pubs in London?
Unfortunately many of them are unrecognisable or closed down but we’re always on the look out for those rare bolt holes where you can only pay cash and the duke box is free like the Man of Kent in Nunhead.

Caine

You also cite ’90s grunge as an inspiration behind this collection – who were your favourite bands/musicians?
Obviously Nirvana, Sonic youth etc, but we love all music really. During our long painting sessions at the studio we can listen to anything from Bob Marley to 1930s comedy songs about loving bananas ‘coz they have no bones’.

Which is your favourite piece in the collection and why?
You can’t help but smile when you look at The Rising Sun Jacket and he came to represent a turning point in the design process. Once we had that made everything else seemed to flow more easily, we hung him like a talisman in our studio!

Caine

You’ve branched out into jeans for AW16 tell us about those… Are there any skirts/dresses etc to follow for next season?
The straight and wide leg jeans are super soft and luxe with a vintage look. Next season were ramping it up a notch so expect anything and everything.

If you had to sum up your brand in three words it would be…
Stylish, fun and irreverent.

Getting To Know: Lucien Wang

07.05.2015 | Fashion | BY:

Brought up in North China, LUCIEN WANG moved to Paris and studied at the prestigious Studio Berçot, following in the footsteps of Isabel Marant and Roland Mouret. Juggling editorial styling and designing a graduate collection, Wang then went on to work at fashion houses including Veronique Leroy to hone in on his skills, which can be seen via the tailoring in his AW15 collection.

Who is the LUCIEN WANG woman?
The LUCIEN WANG woman is elegant, attractive, reserved and fashionable. I hope that every LUCIEN WANG woman could let people around her feel easy going, I have never thought about putting a certain person as the icon for LUCIEN WANG, just wish the one who gets chance to wear LUCIEN WANG could feel herself.

You moved from China to Paris, how has that had an impact on your and your work?
I am a very thoughtful person, since my childhood, I love to observe everything that I haven’t touched before, including art, humanity, geography, climate, politics etc., even the language. The experience of getting along with a French family has made myself get the opportunity to study the reason that how a nation gains such a great success in the fashion. The long time working habits could let me change my mind among different countries, different cultures, I often change my thinking, and add a bit of humour into my collection.

You have previously worked at Veronique Leroy, what did you learn most while working there?
I was very lucky to get the chance to work with designer like Veronique Leroy, she has brought me a lot of different visions, especially how to work with fabrics, and the experience makes me understand and know deeper about the procedure and working method of fashion industrialisation.

How do you begin the design process?
At the beginning and during the process of making every collection, I will think about the comfort level and wearability again and again, and then to create, to create constantly, to build the expectation.

Do you have a favourite look from the AW15 collection?
I like looks featuring the overcoats, because they make the winter look not so dull, of course, all of them are my children, so I love them all.

Which are your favourite Paris hangouts?
My favourite places in Paris are the department stores, I tried to get to know what could attract me permanently, not just for once or twice, so the stores help me for my creation. Of course, galleries are the must-go place for me every week.

Thapelo Paris

20.04.2015 | Fashion | BY:

Timeless, chic and minimal is the philosophy behind this luxury swimwear brand, Thapelo Paris. Established by Sydney born, Wil Ariyamethe, as the name suggests Thapelo Paris is both designed and produced in France, highlighting the brand as not only swimwear but also fashion pieces. Known for their pleated, draped and clean lines, Thapelo Paris plays on the contemporary, with a retro glamour. Twin caught up with the brand to find out more.

Tell us about Thapelo Paris…
I’ve always had the idea to start a business. A large part of my work experience was developing swim lines and I enjoyed it, so it felt instinctual to start a swim based fashion brand. Thapelo is a French company and was set up after my husband and I relocated to Paris. The first collection was a small capsule in 2011.

What is the secret to the perfect swimwear?
You wouldn’t guess how much work goes into finding the right balance between sex appeal and elegance. It’s all in the cut and details to flatter the different parts of a woman’s body. I love to accentuate the fold of a woman’s back and of course the right amount of cleavage. We design pieces that can appeal to a mix of women and not a cliched view of certain age groups. There are so many different components into making a great swimsuit, a high quality quick dry stretch fabric and to mix fashion details (accessories) for the different collections.

What makes Thapelo Paris different?
It’s a combination of elements that make us different. We work closely with our manufacturers and admire the French savoir-faire, so we are 100% made in France. As we’re in Paris it’s such a great base and inspiration for fashion. We aim to make swimwear that is considered to be fashion pieces.

Do you have an all time favourite piece?
Like the little black dress I love the MIMI, our version of a classic black one piece swimsuit. But I’m excited about our upcoming Resort and SS16 collections. I’ve been wearing our new collection tunics over pants as they translate well into city daywear.

Where is your favourite holiday destinations?
Thailand and Australia.

What are your top 5 suitcase essentials?
-Sandals, lots of sandals.

-Lightweight bags, I hate carrying a heavy bag or suitcase. I travel as light as possible.

-Jersey dresses that can go day and night.

-A natural face and body scrub so I get a nice tan, something that smells tropical too so I really feel like I’m on holidays!

-Paw paw ointment.

The Drawing Room, Shoreditch

13.04.2015 | Beauty | BY:

Set in a beautiful Georgian townhouse, The Drawing Room is the latest hair salon in the heart of East London, established by renowned hair stylist Oskar Pera and James Ollerenshaw. Charming, with a comforting and luxurious atmosphere, The Drawing Rooms prides itself on the ultimate personal approach. Twin caught up with Co-Founder Ollerenshaw to talk about his latest venture.

Tell us about The Drawing Room and how it started…
The Drawing Room has been open for a year, but the gestation of the concept probably began when Oskar Pera gained his first experience managing a hair salon in Palma de Mallorca approximately ten years ago. This deepened his ambition to open his own salon, but he wanted to develop his career both commercially and creatively before taking that step.

He moved to London in 2006, styling in leading Shoreditch salons, before leaving to work independently as a session stylist for fashion labels, magazines, models and artists, and private clients. Fashion brands Oskar has styled for include Dior, Vivienne Westwood, Kenzo, Chloé, Erdem, Fred Perry, Lacoste, JW Andersen, and Peter Pilotto. He has delivered creative editorial work for magazines such as Vogue, GQ, Ponystep, Volt and Dansk. Models and artists served include Florence Welch, Cara Delevigne, George Michael, Sharleen Spiteri, The Alpines, Trudie Styler, and Kate Nash.

The Drawing Room prides itself on exclusivity and the personal approach, tell us a little about that…
When creating his own salon, Oskar wanted a space and experience that would offer the glamour and exclusivity inspired by his session work, but his years of experience on the salon floor taught him that clients most value an approach that responds to their individual needs and preferences. He has trained the team at The Drawing Room to always to be professional and pay close attention to detail, and never to be less than warm and genuine, putting clients at their ease and making them the centre of attention. Every appointment begins with a consultation so there is an opportunity to listen carefully to clients’ wishes and to talk with them about their lifestyle and personal style. This conversation build rapport and allows each stylist to build a picture of their client’s character and daily life, helping them to create a manageable style that is uniquely theirs.

What’s in the name?
The name of the salon reflects this ethos of personality and the style of the building we occupy. The Drawing Room has been created within a 1750s town house and we wanted to maintain the sense that you are entering a beautiful, almost domestic space. There’s none of the feel of a busy chain salon. Clients sit in capacious styling chairs facing antique or bespoke dressing tables. We shake their choice of cocktail or offer artisan coffee or fresh tea. There are hot towels to refresh and, on most days, Poquito the salon dog provides additional entertainment!

Which hairstyles are particularly on trend for this summer?
Following on from fashion week events in London and Paris, Oskar notes that natural-looking, lightly wavy, air-dried styles are very popular at present. They look effortless, but to work really well you’ll need an exceptional cut and skilful colour. If this natural look suits your taste and hair type, here’s how you can achieve it.

For medium length hair, after washing and conditioning, towel dry taking care to ensure moisture is removed from the ends. If your hair is frizzy, apply a rich leave-in conditioner. If you have smooth hair, use a salt spray to create texture. Part the hair and, holding the hair dryer above you head, blow downwards using a medium temp. Adjust the amount of waviness by using your fingers like a wide-toothed brush, smoothing out the hair to reduce waves, or scrunching to increase them.

For long hair, follow the same steps as above, but when your hair is 95% dry divide it into four quarters across your head and then loosely plait each section. You can leave to dry naturally for around half an hour, or if you’re pressed for time apply some heat by using a hair dryer with a diffuser attachment. Once the hair is fully dry, undo the plaits and shake out your hair to a natural finish.

Twin Summer Mix by Jérémie Khlat

19.07.2013 | Blog , Music | BY:

Fresh from spinning the decks at menswear fashion week after parties, the dapper Parisian DJ Jérémie Khlat talks to Twin about all things music, plus offers up an exclusive summer mix to get us in the mood for the sun…

How and when did you get into deejaying?

I got into it years ago when I was the art director of Chacha Club in Paris. I was hanging around DJs and finishing late sets got me really into it. I then began to deejay a lot for fashion events and got to build my own DJ style. I became the main DJ and booker for Montana club 3 years ago, that’s when everything kicked off for me. I spinned around the world for the big fashion houses, also doing their sound design for catwalks. I’ve always loved music from being a kid. My family is very into music – my father is an opera musician – and I grew up in this world full of jazz and opera. This is mixed with my generation of music: old hip hop, good rock and pop music.

What is on your personal playlist at the moment?

I download lots of new music all the time – new remixes, covers, bands or albums – but to be honest, I’m usually more into old stuff like disco and rock n roll classics. I love the new Sky Ferreira songs at the moment. She’s pretty amazing and has her own soul, which I like and you can feel it in her work. I’m also really into the new Phoenix songs, they’re the best band ever to me.

Where are your favourite places to DJ?

I love Montana in Paris obviously, I ran that place and it’s where you could just feel free and have the best fun. But I’ve always loved deeyjaying in NYC, where I just recently moved to. Deejaying at Le Baron in NY is cool because the atmosphere can be close to the Paris clubs. I’m also really enjoying the Electric Room with fellow DJs Elle Dee and Kieren Taylor. That club is mostly about rock n’ roll and indie, which is definitely more my type.

What are the best secret hangouts in Paris?

If I told you then it wouldn’t be a secret anymore 😉 Stolly’s bar in the Marais is definitely the place to go, they have good rock n roll / punk playlist, the crowd is amazing, the bartender Louison is the sweetest; it’s like Cabin in NY. Re clubs its not a secret anymore…Montana to me is the perfect place to enjoy a night. The little bars are cool too, like Dirty Dicks in Pigalle (they have the best cocktails), Cafe de Flore in St Germain, Brasserie le Mansart in the 9e or the Le Carmen basement room which is run by my best friend & DJ partner Adrien Wend.

But Paris has a lot of great flat parties, that’s where the fun is at…

What is your guilty pleasure song?

My guilty pleasure songs are mostly the ones aren’t that ‘cool’ anymore but I loved during my teenage years, like the old Robyn song from 15 years ago, or some cheesy disco that always makes you want to dance like crazy. Saying that, I’m not really into commercial songs. I always love a good big new hip hop song, violent and aggressive, or very occasionally a pop song, but I couldn’t tell you, I still want people to hire me [laughs].

What’s coming up for you this summer?

Well, I just moved to NY recently, and now will be in between Paris and NY most of the time to deejay, doing sound design and event hosting. It’s been busy so far with Coachella and Cannes film festival where I have deejayed for many years now. This summer I’ll probably split my time between the Hamptons, Montauk and NY. I’ll go to Europe in August as usual, to see the family and rest in Corsica and the south of France.

BLK DNM: A Johan Lindeberg Project.

29.01.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

The home of the cool kids, BLK DNM is best known for its coveted leather and denim wear, mixing that easy downtown New York vibe with chic Swedish minimalism.

Leather is a special thing, and Johan Lindeberg knows all about it, having launched his limited edition collection of women’s leather jackets in eight enticing styles.

The project, BLK DNM Leather Jacket 8, has seen the reworking and redesigning of his signature jacket in textured luxury Italian leather and fur combos, all handmade in NYC.

Speaking about the capsule collection, Lindeberg says: “I’ve built BLK DNM as a creative project, rather than just another fashion brand, to explore initiatives like this one. I like that we can take one of our core products, the leather jacket, and create an exclusive edition for a high-end capsule collection that still fits with the brand identity. I’m always inspired by independent, intelligent women with strong self identities, and wanted to reflect those different personalities with this project. Each leather jacket combines a unique pairing of leather textures and colors, as well as shearling fur variations, to present a strong character, each to speak to a different woman.”

Johan channels this ultra sexy independent biker chick (think a leather clad contemporary Suzi Quatro/Joan Jett type) through the collection’s campaign featuring Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, photographed by the designer himself.

The BLK DNM leather jacket 8 leather capsule collection is available exclusively at the BLK DNM stores in New York, on Lafayette Street and Stockholm, as well as Colette, Paris.

Gold Fingers

24.08.2012 | Blog | BY:

London based, Seattle born jewellery designer Kyle Hopkins is the underground jewellery label to know. Merging art with metal making, his pieces are conceptual, highly thoughtful and symbolic, with such a personal feel they instantly become beloved mementos.

Currently finishing a two day residency on SHOWStudio, where he’s been busily making his own death mask,  Twin caught up with the Hatton Garden based designer…

When did you start making jewellery?
I was about five years old when my neighbour started me. I just never wanted to do anything else.

Materials?
Silver and gold, exotic hard woods, steel, fur from time to time. Whatever material lends itself best. Learning how to work new materials keeps me learning and keeps it interesting.

Favourite piece to make from AW12?
First kiss lip ring. It’s got the most vivid memories when I work on one of them the memories become nearly tangible, like when a smell wafts through a room and carries you to the very edge of a moment you thought was lost.

Favourite piece to wear from AW12?
The ear and finger prints necklace.

What do you do for fun?
Read. Witgenstein, Foucault, Jonathan Safran Foer, Kurt Vonnegut, Machiavelli, Tolstoy.

Where to buy?

Yard Birds

10.08.2012 | Blog | BY:

This Saturday the London blogger glitterati are getting together for a united yard sale. The line-up includes Charlie May aka Girl a la Mode, Susie Bubble, Lust & Found and Anastasia & Duck all selling cherished designer, high street and vintage womenswear and menswear.

Expect a posh upcycle, fashion stylie of course with food, drink and live music.

Twin caught up with one of the bloggers involved, Charlie May…

When did you start your blog?
August 2008, whilst I was studying fashion design at university.

How would you describe it in five words?
Clean, minimal, adventurous and design led.

What is London style to you?
The freedom to dress however you want without being stared down in the street.

What will you be selling at the yard sale?
I seem to collect hats at sample sales and then never wear them! One hat in particular i’ll be selling is the leather ACNE cowboy hat from their Resort collection. It’ll make someone very happy I’m sure!

How did you get involved with it?
Susie sent me an email asking if I wanted to be a part of it, I’ve just moved house so was keen to go through everything and only keep what’s in regular circulation.

Will you be on the hunt for anything yourself?
I have a feeling I’ll be spending any money I make on Susie’s rail, I hear it’s going to be pretty amazing!
