HUNGARY'S HOTSPOT USE unused is one of the most successful young fashion design teams in Hungary, The designers of the brand are Eszter Fuzes, Attila Godena-Juhasz and Andras Toth. Use unused brand officially began in 2006, and for those 4 years up until now, this label has completely been absent on my radar, its's a shame I did not discover this label earlier, but I guess it's never too late and this is the strong SS Collection 10/11. I revere the feminine lady like appearance to the collection with some beautiful cut out shapes and minimalist colours, very graceful yet stylish and on point.
Surrounded by the glorious hills and outdoor scenery which is the Black Forest, located in Germany's Baden-Baden and also where based the new label Garland Coo founded in 2009, whom's roots are deeply anchored in the South German Culture in their native landscape as a fathomless source of inspiration. Garland Coo's creative collaboration chimes of a duo designer Jasmin Isabel Eckerle and artist Marcel Singer, whom created a collection of, slim cut silhouettes, sharp tailoring evident in the gorgeous satin ribboned trousers below, hand dyed silks between bondage themes and defined folds. Not forgetting the Black Forestian PomPom's which look as tasty as the Black Forest gateau, Yum.
My favourite of the collection is the tailored trousers with streamed satin ribbons at the front and leaving the back minimal with lacing around the middle of the knees. I am rather excited to see more from Garland Coo, the menswear is also in the pipeline and the label currently dabble in fascinating projects in Art, Films, photography and exhibitions, there must be something in the water over in the Black Forest.
