London-based Slovak photographer Peter Kollar teamed up with Slovak designer Pavel Berky for this dark and brooding editorial for Deux Europe. Pavel's work is firmly rooted in the aesthetics of his homeland, yet elements of his work provide equipoise to the aesthetic values that make good fashion, great and great fashion, sublime.
Narciso Rodriguez designed this year's New York City Ballet’s fall gala as he was designing for his pre-fall collection. So it is no surprise that his pre-fall collection would have an air of invincibility and functionality that would appeal to us mere mortals. His ability to fuse functionality with a sense of whimsy and luxury is always on point (no pun intended). His pre-fall collection exudes a certain sense of effortlessness that can only come with knowing your craft inside out. And Narciso Rodriguez has reached that fabled equipoise where his art is both commercially viable and artistically intriguing.
