TI IS MAD FOR: Corbier Agostini

After 20 years of working for Thierry Mugler, Lanvin and Jean-Paul Gaultier, Corbier Agostini  presented their first collection in Sept.After 20 years of working for Thierry Mugler, Lanvin and Jean-Paul Gaultier, Corbier Agostini presented their first collection in Sept.

TI flashes red alert when an emerging brand also crosses the scanning systems of both the Tokyo Dandy blog in Japan and A Shaded View On Fashion. Of course both those kids were bound to get into the gothness inherent in Corbier Agostini, but more importantly this new label meshes in ideas from the rigorous standards of French couture alongside that marked penchant for Japonisme. Not to mention the gift of the lyrical description of the design ethos . In the words of the createurs...

EARLY WARNING SIGNAL: PEET DULLAERT'S DECISIVE ELEGANCE

Such a precise sense of identity always draws your attention.Such a precise sense of identity always draws your attention.

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.

That combination is lethal. Here, he explains its genesis.

Imagine three or four thousand kids coming together at a discotheque in the middle of nowhere. Everything you saw was fashion. Whether it was self-made, or second-hand, or high fashion like Gaultier. We had a very specific way of dancing, and a very specific sound. There were a lot of lasers and a lot of drugs. It was sublime.

COVETED LABEL OF THE MOMENT: J.W. ANDERSON

Somewhere between the Versus and Nikon collaborations, at that sweet spot where his of-the-moment women's collections criss-crossed with his increasingly influential men's collection, JW Anderson has become IT.

TI IS MAD FOR: YUU DESIGNER Nusumigui

Nusumigui's work is characterized by childlike whimsy. That naive charm is belied by his incredible skill in cutting up, mashing up, juxtaposing , overlaying and cross-collaging
