We got hints of this a while back but Kris Van Assche has finally unveiled his short film, “A Moment in Time”. It’s directed by Joost Vandebrug and was presented a few days back at the launch of LONDERZEEL number 2 during Paris Fashion Week.

Patrick Grant has done a tremendous job with Savile Row’s E. Tautz and the proof is in the results, as the label’s Spring 2012 collection was recently showcased at London Fashion Week. The label’s known to mix classic English sensibility with edge and wit. The pieces are simple at heart, beautifully handmade, and playful as well. The inspiration behind this season’s offerings comes from the 1924 Paris Olympics, Oxford rowers as well as a thing or two from Felix Carvajal, the marathon running postman.

NYFW | General Idea Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

One of our favorite shows from this season’s New York Fashion Week comes from General Idea. The looks were fabulous but we were really impressed with the overall presentation. The bright colors and amazing styles walked down the runway with Colette Magny’s “Melocoton” playing in the background blending the timeless appeal of the collection with that of the classic French singer. Here’s what Selectism had to say: “We like the orange and turquoise in the upcoming collection, but also the more toned down khaki and black and navy checker pieces. Look at the pieces individually and you will find some great every day outerwear and knitwear to accent your outfits.”
