This season must have is leather, as in everything from coats and boots to skirts and shorts. The trend is to mix and match different types and colours, throw in some fur details or chunky knits, add silk or prima cotton next to skin for a feminine touch and you are set for the colder months ahead.

Michala Franck Ballieu Wiesneck was born in Copenhagen and raised in India, Spain and Southern France. She studied at Chambre Syndicale de Haute Couture Parisienne before working for top designer labels such as Christian Lacroix and Cacharel among others. In 1992 Michala was head hunted by Inwear / ICcompany Group. She stayed their for 10 years before being the creative force behind Day Birger et Mikkelsen for another 8 years. By this it became clear that the only natural next step would be to create her own label, and the story of M. Wiesneck could begin.
Autumn Winter 2013 will be her third collection and shows a eclectic mix of prints and feminine styles. We especially love the silk blouses, the leather jacket and and the tailored black leggings. Let me know what you think!
Designers Remix was founded in 2002 by Charlotte Eskildsen with her husband and CEO, Niels Eskildsen. Since then, they have successfully developed the company into a global brand available in stores all across Europe, Russia, Asia and the Middle East. Charlotte Eskildsen, the Creative Director of Designers Remix, has an architectural approach to every aspect of the design process. Her unique design is all about minimalism, architecture, 3D tailoring as well as draping and cutting. Although the Designers Remix show and campaign photos doesn’t really show it, the clothes are all highly feminine.
The autumn winter 2013 collection has a Diamonds are Forever theme, with effects like broken glass print on several styles. The draped jersey dress, along with simple silk shirt dresses and loose fit silk trousers are among my favourites. And the stylish pair of zipped statement pump. The list goes on… have a look for yourself, and let me know what you think at designersremix.com
I know we’re still waiting for summer to arrive. But on a rainy and grey day in May I thought I’d might as well share a sneak preview on some gorgeous pre autumn news landing in stores mid June. From Danish designer label Designers Remix comes oversized coats, jumpers, trousers, shorts and skirts in the chic but slightly sporty look we’ve become to love.
I remember my mum had similar white court shoes in the 80’s and as a child I always though they were beautiful.
The red ensemble is to die for, with a simple oversized jumper matched together with a asymmetric skirt. Very bold indeed.
