Ugo Mozié “The Kill”

The adorable fashion editor and stylist Ugo Mozie has decided to help jump start socialite Karrueche Tran’s fashion career by partnering with Miss Tran on his latest endeavor; a new clothing line called The Kill.  The clothing line will feature tee shirts, hats, socks and the like and is scheduled to launch on December 12. 

While I’m not a fan of Mozié’s  creative talents (see Aston Mozie)… and Miss Tran has no fashion background or talent that we know of….and I’m definitely not interested in another tee shirt line… I am an optimist so I will reserve my opinions for after the launch.  Maybe we’re all in for a pleasant surprise (side eye). 

SIDE NOTE: Mr. Mozié I hope all this promotion doesn’t keep you too busy to start planning your next move.

Designer Nicolas Petrou was born in Cyprus. He studied fashion design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, and then moved to New York City, where he founded the label where he continues to deliver magnificent collections each season; it’s no wonder he has been named Arise Magazine’s Menswear Designer of the Year 2012 for PETROU\MAN

The West Africa influenced SS12 collection draws inspiration from modern age fashion and culturally rich traditional influences. Designer Nicolas Petrou is well known for his ingenious way of adding hand applied details to classic menswear. In this collection Petrou experiments with texures, prints, layering, and color.

Joyce Bidouzo-Coudray summarizes the collection nicely:

“Using both traditional and modern fabrics that range from hand-dyed tartans to organic cotton and jersey wool as well as microfibers, nylon and metallic leather, the collections offer a modern take on refined classical menswear with a twist of tribal sophistication.”

His latter collection, for A/W 2011, was inspired by artist David Gòmez (and his tribal faces), the inspiration behind the make-up and the patterns.. View photos of both collections in the gallery below.

Washington Roberts presentation of his Autumn/Winter 2012 collection took place at The Bryant Park Hotel’s Cellar Bar in NYC March 30th.  Plated leathers, lustrous twills, intense hardware, studded accessories, and color blocking all played an integral part in the collection, as did the use of dimensional layering, angled tailoring, and mix mashing of fabric. Roberts presented a collection that was edgy yet sophisticated.

These looks are intense definitely for the fashionista who likes to stand out in a crowd…View our favorite looks below:

Cool peplum jackets, draped silk blouses, and sparkly lamé party dresses in bright colors seen throughout the Tracy Reese autumn/winter 2012 collection gives one a sense of spring amongst the otherwise dreary color palettes commonplace on the runway for this season.

Ozwald Boateng’s  fall/winter 2012 collection introduces plenty of black, salt and pepper wool,  dramatic overcoats, and mohair and Japanese fabrics.

Boateng describes his collection:

“The traditionally ‘black and white’ Japanese attitude towards clothing etiquette fascinates me. In modern society, migration between East and West has caused these elements to merge. Autumn/Winter 2012 combines facets of typical British Hunting Attire and a Japanese aesthetic story to create something new, something directional.”
