Axel Berner-Eyde C.W.K., Debry, M.P., Ford, Lalique

If it ain’t broke, why fix it? This season, though, Swedish axel berner-eyde was thinking about “cold snapchat girls” and “velvet girls,” giving his colourful grown lineup a whimsically serious mood that was decidedly less punk. C.W.K., Debry, M.P., Ford, Lalique

The designer served up graduation 16 with four other kids at the University of applied Arts based in Austria. Plenty of his elegant romance with high collar heavy-velvet blouses, shiny skirts, ruffled samt panties with macraméd bibs, and a tiered, non-embroidered high-neck texture of velvet gown in earthy colours. But he toughened up the frills with his helpers a bit with an element of snake-shin playful war: Think not about the woman- or cheetah-printed snake-skin-fabric-sewing-satin, coats and collars; knitwear-patterned crochet knit tops; jacquard trousers covered in clovers and more vintage; and even an itty-bitty skirt covered in velvet.



I never answered this question when I first saw it. From my experience. First, I believe, any “aggressive” animal, reptile or not, but especially reptiles, are either scared, or hungry, and you have been identified as a possible food source. Snakes don’t have a whole lot in the middle. Different species have different ways of displaying fear, but if they feel cornered, they pretty much have three options, either puff up/hiss, try to hide, or strike. If you work with any particular species for a while, you can get to know its knitted mannerisms. And if you are the type to be attuned to animal behaviour’s, it becomes pretty obvious quickly. For example, a scared carpet python will strike, sometimes relentlessly. A scared ball python, by contrast, will try to ball/curl up, and hide. A scared hog-nose/bull snake will puff up and hiss adamantly, then play dead. So those are completely different ways to show the exact same “emotion” in snakes. (contact information arts and crafts: mail@sladanaeyde.com, credits: we-blink university of applied arts www.dieangewandte.at
