Oregan based RillRill by Katie Freedle salutes the domestic gemstone marble in its modern day medallion necklaces. What a delightful surprise to see this common yet complex rock get its time in the sun!

In the built environment it is the natural materials that always give honesty and warmth. Stone in particular with all its intricate lines of history is what lifts the mundane to the magical so it’s no wonder that these neck charms resonate with us.

Their contemporary tribal geometry combined with their generous scale make them gallant medals. Statement ornaments combining copper, leather and marble could just as well be diamonds, gold, and chain – in our books they are one and the same.

From morning to night these rocks rock on.

Since 2009, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have been flying the Valentino flag with floral embroideries, aristocratic elegance, sumptuously rich appliques and highly detailed, romantic prints.

This injection of colour right into the middle of an otherwise signature Valentino Resort collection of embroidered butterflies, flowers and classic modesty, is a shake up like no other. Its inspiration is taken directly from the Valentino’s archives, with a “visually disruptive” psychedelic print from 1973.

This layered, pixellated, jarringly-bold collection of sixties silhouettes in bright chevrons over stripes over squares is seen right in the middle of a monumentally impressive eighty-three piece line-up. The only consistency with the other looks of the collection, are the delicate feminine plaits of the models’ hair and their signature chandelier earrings.

It’s certainly a wake up for the eyes and makes for an energetic start to this fine Monday morning.

There is something especially captivating about the images from the Resort collections each year. Seeing the subtly styled, holistically vision for a label and the promise of it’s wearability off the catwalk is tantalisingly sweet.

Issa, Brit-born with Brazilian roots, is no exception to the rule. This year, it presents a carefully-collaged collection of solid cutout forms, painterly florals, abstracted leaf motifs in milky blues, coral, tropical greens, black and white. It’s has a sense of 1960s nostalgia, a silhouette of 1970s elegance and a fresh palette of now. Boxy shapes with structured flutes and large-scale scollops, stylised waves and the hint of a peplum take us on an oh-so-sophisticated tropical adventure with a quick sojourn back through the French Riviera.

There is undoubtedly an influence of art and sculpture to this collection. Issa’s creative director Blue Farrier says, “I was intrigued by Picasso’s muse, the painter Françoise Gilot, and I wondered where she and other influential female artists like Barbara Hepworth or Niki de Saint Phalle would holiday, and how they would dress there”.

Magic.

POP BAM!!! New York based fashion designer Mara Hoffman is no wallflower. Her summer collection of feminine floaty attire has us yearning for those long lost summer days and all the giddy parties that ensue. These showstoppers are confident and sassy.

Hoffman’s collection is electrified folklore. Applied embellishments unravel in radiant iconic bursts of rainbows, serpents and goddess eyes. Seemingly collated from exotic faraway lands, it is a brilliant mish-mash of cultures unified. Hoffman’s inspiration is boundless. Colours are reminiscent of the juicy seasonal fruits of watermelon, peach and mango against backdrops of midnight and petrol blue. These garments have no limits, fresh from morning till late night.

Never shy of patterns her first collection back in 2000 was lovingly hand dyed and batiked by Hoffman herself and since then it’s been a psychedelic journey thru pattern and colour.

Dinosaur Designs duo – Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy – comes up trumps once again with their new collection ‘Seed Pod’. Striking sculptural pieces in a strong colour palette, they’re full of confidence.

You often think of their resin jewellery as fluid shapes beautifully naïve and smooth to the touch, well think again. This collection will blow that out of the water. It’s decorative to the max. Organic origins are evident but they are teamed this time around, with divine detailing and a flirtation of bling. Pitted and podded, generous sweeping hollows curve back on themselves. Tactile as always you want to trace your fingers over each piece. Fine pod strands jostle in between big bean shaped plates studded with precious seeds. Everything is teeming with new life.

We love this new direction for Olsen and Ormandy and it is clear to see that this is a treasured family affair. The photo shoot was clearly a joyous collaboration between long time friends; two mothers (Louise Olsen & writer Caia Hagel), two fathers (Stephen Ormandy and photographer Tim Georgeson) and their two daughters (Camille Ormandy and Nova Orchid).

It’s so beautiful to watch the creative growth of this truly iconic Australian brand. Congratulations Dinosaur Designs on continuing to delight us.

Gotta love a fusion of style and culture. Stella Jean, born in Rome of Caribbean descent has once again delivered. We first featured Jean in the early days of In/Out where her collection of layered tribal printed swimwear was certainly at the forefront of the retro-revival seen in swimwear this summer.

Having just presented her Fall collection in Milan, Jean is back on the radar. Her Spring Summer 2014 collection of classic Italian seaside silhouettes pack a punch like no other with Jean’s layered more-is-more African wax prints. With the addition this season of varying scaled stripes, and oversized fruit and flower motifs, this collection is once again executed with a dramatic silhouette of nostalgia.

In/Out - Friday Musings: Louis Vuitton Icons Collection S/S 2014

Not long ago on In/Out we featured La Maison au Bord de l’Eau (House by the water) by French architect Charlotte Perriand. The prototype house was realised for the very first time at Miami Art Week late last year and it was all thanks to a collaborative vision between the woman who designed it and French fashion house Louis Vuitton.

In it’s Spring/Summer 2014 Icons collection, Louis Vuitton looked to Perriand’s timeless, modern style for inspiration. From construction to colour, the structured multi-functional garments pay homage to Perriand’s pared-back, graphic sensibility and obsession with modularity.

The photographic work of Edward Burtynsky captures ‘nature transformed through industry’. Burtynsky’s work is an impassioned, heart-startling visual representation of our modern existence. An existence tied to a dilemma inherent in our desires to ‘have’ as well as the unceasing necessity to draw from natural resources for our survival. Burtynsky’s work creates an uneasy contradiction of visions of natural beauty marred by the industrialised processes of mankind.

Day to day it is a complex predicament as a designer to work consciously and responsibly with the limited material beauty produced by the planet being inevitably and continually transformed dramatically through industry. Burtynsky’s work captures this dialogue, the ‘uneasy contradiction’, so powerfully.

The richness of materiality, of texture, of pattern and of detail is perfectly paired with the work of Sydney-based jewellery designer, art director and illustrator Elke Kramer. An endless material exploration, Kramer’s work is innovatively crafted and impeccably detailed. Her collection Moonstruck Monsoon released at the end of 2013 is an ode to individuality, innovation and material beauty.

We are not ashamed to admit we are having a rather large Carmen Miranda moment this spring. Perhaps it is the kiss of the increasingly warming breeze getting us hot under the collar or the long leisurely afternoons of daylight savings… Either way it seems that fruit is very much of the moment. Eat it, wear it, paper it all the way across your parlour walls – live the glamour and the fun of the fruitful explosion of late.

Arent&Pyke go-to Gorman have freshly ripened their playful new spring collection of cartooned pineapple and watermelon prints, English fashion label Isolda were a step ahead last season, but it is the black & white striped compliment to the vintage botanical style fruity prints adding that fresh extra punch from Mother of Pearl who gets our vote.

It’s tutti frutti tango time. Pass the Pina Colada please.

While we are at it… Stay tuned for our next ‘Chat in a Chair’ where we will be launching a brand new INSTA-CHALLENGE which kicks off on Wednesday 16th October. We will be giving away our chatter’s favourite chair in walnut. It is a classic favourite of ours and an truly iconic piece from the Herman Miller collection from Living Edge. So make sure you follow us on instagram @arentpyke_inout and subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss a thing!

As the sun shines a little brighter here in Australia, on the other side of the world Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin of NYC-based Tome are cooling it down with this beautifully evocative and gestural short of their fall collection.

It’s a seductive teaser for their upcoming show today at NYC Fashion Week which promises a lighthearted approach of layered silhouettes and signature draped, raw-edged minimal silks. Keep an eye out for clashing yet analogous tones of coral & candy pink, touches of snakeskin, intricate embroidery and a dash of prints.

This Christmas in NYC we will be sitting-on-down with Ryan and Ramon for a Chat in a Chair! Stay tuned.
