ISKO chose the exciting frame of the Milan Design Week to present Denim Sound Textures, the first immersive and interactive experience that introduces guests to the surprising multi-sensoriality of the much-loved fabric.
ISKO confirms denim as an inspirational material to see, touch and even to listen to. In fact, the sounds emitted by the different kinds of denim can stimulate different senses. The project culminates in ten creative interpretations, all different to each other, by some very exclusive brand partners that have relied on ISKO fabrics for their collections: HUGO, Madewell, Replay, Dovetail Workwear, François Girbaud, Taylor Stitch, 7 For All Mankind, Blue de Gênes, Tiziano Guardini and O’Neill.
This one-of-a-kind project is the result of ISKO’s focus on pushing the unlimited possibilities of denim: an ongoing technical, aesthetic and functional research process which highlights the core values of the company – competence, creativity, social and environmental responsibility – as its leading force.

The FW19 season of Vancouver Fashion Week brought serious talent to centre stage, with an incredible range of creative designers from Canada and across the world. Spearheading diversity VFW featured local lines as well as an influx of international designers representing the likes of Australia, France, Russia, Japan, India, Ukraine, and Taiwan. Some highlights included:
Japanese designer Emi Jingu showed off the endless artistic possibilities of balloons with her collection ‘Unlimited’. She captivated the audience with her innovative and sophisticated dresses each using the unique material of balloons. Jingu pushes artistic boundaries as she effortlessly coordinates a metallic palette of grey, bronze and gold tones while intricately layering balloons of different dimensions in such a way to create elegant couture silhouettes. Jingu’s dresses featured peplum-styles, slim bodices, and flared skirts, highlighting her extraordinary talents. The eccentric garments were complemented with sleek hairstyles, glossy makeup with ashy tones, and stilettos to encompass the chic futuristic style.
YONFA, a collection from Japanese designer Kim Yonghwa, was the embodiment of accessible, comfortable elegance. In her collection, Yonghwa played with dimensions, offering a range of oversized jackets, crisp calf-length white shirts and sweaters cut at unique yet flattering angles. Yonghwa’s commitment to basic materials, such as wool and cotton, worked in harmony with her flattering silhouettes and elementary palette of white, navy, black and tan, to create looks free from fuss that express comfort, elegance and accessible style.
Local designer Melissa Yin of Mel Elegance presented ‘Celestial’, a resort-wear collection. Melissa is Chinese-Canadian and brings a multicultural aesthetic and minimalist comfort to luxury resort-wear. Inspired by a summer spent in Alaska Delaney National Park, Melissa’s designs were defined by flowing silhouettes and warm floral patterns in silk and linen. The sounds and sights of Alaskan wildlife were reflected through colour and detail in a collection that transitions steadily from black and floral ruffles to white lace. Rounding out the tone of the show were floor-length dresses in soft pinks and bright reds. Thoroughly accessorized, outfits were completed with bright blue and pink straw beach bags.

Sterling Ruby will be the Special Guest at Pitti Immagine Uomo no. 96, taking place in Florence, from 11th till 14th June 2019. The American artist famous for the multifaceted nature of his work that spans painting, ceramics, collage, video and photography, sculpture and installations, as well as textiles and garments, will present the first collection by the S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. brand at a special event scheduled for 13 June 2019.
“We have been very interested in the work of the artist Sterling Ruby for a long time” says Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine’s director of communication and events, “endeavors which are suspended between different areas with, at the center, a heterogeneous project dedicated to reinterpreting American workwear. This alone would be enough to justify Pitti Uomo’s invitation to host the debut of the collection that will convey the project on to the fashion market. But Sterling Ruby is also one of the protagonists of the powerful and creative Los Angeles artistic scene that still moves between a thrust towards experimentation free from the burdens of success and competition and an adherence to industrial models of cinema, music, entertainment…and, naturally, fashion.”
