Peet Dullaert is the 24 year old Dutch designer who in only one year of work has set the antennas of dedicated followers of fashion on high alert . Peet is currently deep in the studio prepping his Spring 2014 offering. TI got his attention for a sec in the hopes of unraveling the essence of Dullaert's process. It is a process that presents a kind of classic femininity zapped with the nonchalance, speed and verve of very modern life. Subverting that illusory casualness with an obsessive attention to rigor, quality and detail, Dullaert is that rare young designer with a decided design signature all his very own. Such a precise sense of identity always draws my attention, though every time I have dinner with Peet I'm amazed at the open optimism of his youthfulness against the authoritative sharpness of his clothes. That combination is lethal. Here, he explains its genesis.

"Grace was a big part of the in crowd in London. I don't recall plucking her eyebrows and if I did hers were the only eyebrows I ever did pluck. She was marvelous and a really great model but she cut off her hair. It was way too short, in my opinion. That I do remember. Grace has had a great career and she is a great editor. One of the best, actually. I never doubted her greatness. I did however, doubt her short hair."

It' s clear by now that I'm deeply intrigued by the styling and editing work of the driven young Sonny Groo. Hailing from Amsterdam, Sonny is one of those rare individuals whose passion for the industry transcends the common hunt for fame and money. You get the sense that the boy is doing what he does out of a sense of destiny. We had a late breakfast on the day after the final show of Paris Fashion Week where Sonny brought me a copy of the gorgeous first print issue of Mykromag. It was like being handed this beautifully crafted black box filled with images by new photographers shooting pieces by new designers on new and sometimes never before seen models. I loved the audacity and the elegance of the book and treasured it. During our conversation, tears came to Sonny's eyes when he tried to express how important it was for him to see and create beautiful images . We were in this shockingly modern organic food cafe on rue des Pyramides as the last of the visiting fashionistas came sprinting down rue Saint Honore. I remembered thinking...now here is the extreme degree of passion you need for success in fashion.
