Last night Tony Cohen presented for the first time his collection fall/winter 2011 at the dutch catwalk. He has been already for five times at the New York Fashion Week, but now he showed his designs in his hometown.
His inspiration for this collection is a combination between classical 60's couture (Marc Bohan) and a journey through the architecture of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. The shapes and lines of the pieces are evidently classical inspired but still have the organic feel of a flowing 'movement'. It is a contrast between structure and a 'throw on' attitude which makes up an ultra wearable 'technical' collection. The fabrics are mostly from Japanese High Tech Mills and the colors are dark with some highlights of copper and cold.
Tony Cohen is selling his clothes worldwide and good news for the greek readers, his collection is available in Athens.

Fashion and art are connected. Inspiration of art in fashion goes a long time back. But inspiration of fashion on art is becoming more and more visable.
To me, as fashion graduate and photographer this connection is inspiring and I love to read, research and write about it.
Any ideas are more than welcome and I hope you will follow me on my journey of research of art in fashion and fashion in art...
