Moto Guo’s Fall 2016 collection relates the reality of a contemporary fashion designer to being a pencil pusher in a fantasy world. In this wonderful alternate universe,
the Pencil Pusher takes main stage, imitating Moto’s affairs in real life and exaggerating everything along the way.

Despite having to enjoy certain aspects of his vocation, there are still tedious obligations left to fulfil for our darling Pencil Pusher
and these little tasks come in the form of spreadsheets, meetings and such.

Outwardly, our Pencil Pusher looks like an ordinary cubicle creature; clad in his obligatory uniform. Inside, he is anything but, so he seeks ways to manipulate his outfits to express as well as satisfy his creativity and individualism.
He amuses himself by reaching for office supplies and adding them on his outfits as though putting on little ornaments on himself.

Being confined half of the time dealing with paperwork, the Pencil Pusher spends equal amount of time doing outside
interactions – another task of which agitates him to a certain level.
Socially awkward by nature, he has little idiosyncrasies to suppress the anxiety. The restless jitters loosen the openings of his pockets,
making an unshapely silhouette out of his otherwise tailored suits.
With every interaction the Pencil Pusher has with people, the more manipulated they look to him. Eventually, he is talking to nothing more than a clown.

How would this story end? It is up to the author who happens to relate to our little chief character in every way imaginable.
Moto illustrates the bigger picture with the small ones,
embedding to each seam a thought behind it. It is not imprecise to say that in this case, art imitates life.
We will only know the ending when the author pens it and perhaps in the coming days, our protagonist would be in a different mascot, telling of another tale.

« Handling colours and lines, isn’t it true diplomacy, because the real difficulty is to judiciously accord it all. » Raoul Dufy.
 
For her first collection inspired by the explorer, contemporary art and surrealism, Sarah Julie Lenel presents Nérée fall/winter 2016-2017, a declension of a marine’s wardrobe indispensable: Stripe.
 
“The action of painting is based on the link of mixed colors,
the link of united forms and the link of forms and colors”. Auguste Herbin.
 
Sarah Julie Lenel advocates colors and uses them without any restraint. Humor, optimism and generosity, Nérée highlights the contemporary and eccentric city sailor.
 
The pieces of clothing are generously shaped. SJL offers a game between graphics and colors that brings dynamism and stability to the outfits.
She brings a contemporary note through satins and smooth fabrics: the satin cotton, twill and Doupion used on jackets; the percaline, cotton poplin and Linon of the shirts; the twill and taffeta of the breeches and Bermuda shorts.
 
Pullovers have their part of surprises too. From a distance they might seem knitted but, getting closer, the weaving is revealed and gives a new vision of the turtleneck sweater. The pullovers’ woven wools, the jackets’ laminated flannels and the coats’ wadded jersey bring
volume and give a soft, supple and comfortable touch at the same time.
 
Without ridicule in the excess and with a lot of extravagance, Sarah Julie Lenel offers outfits from an adventurous world in an eccentric and city style. SJL is intended for a quirky man with a great sense of humor.

On your website, you invite the visitor who wants to read more about your work to just play. “Let’s play!” one reads.
Is playfulness at the core of your work?

Сuriosity and exploration are part of the play scene. My woman is ambitious and spikey,
so playfulness is an integral part of her life.

When designing a new collection do you respond to an inspiration or rather to an inner need to make a statement?
I usually start from some visual point that then leads me towards the aesthetic and philosophy of the collection.

Would you share with us the main characteristics of your collection for spring / summer 2016? While working on it, how did you feel about it?
What was the creative process like?

The core element of the collection revolves around the deconstruction of the traditional paisley print. Unconventional prints are combined with embroidered
sleeves and collars. The creative process was very fun and enjoyable.

Are there things about your work that you find yourself obsessing about?
There should be always some structural element around which the whole collection is built.

My collection for Fall Winter 2016-17 deals with secularism and worship.
Three years ago, as part of my thesis; I designed a collection that was inspired by the tension between Jewish religious and secular lives,
tension that was reflected in my life at the time.

The current collection focuses on my own secularism while incorporating elements from the
BDSM fantasy world, something I regard as secular worship.

In the pieces I integrated my interpretations  of harnesses and other components from the BDSM sub-culture, such as slits and cuts in the fabric,
oversized overalls accessorized with leather straps and metal rings, as well as tailored oversized T-shirts, dress shirts, Nehru shirts, dress pants, wool coats and Bermuda shorts, fusing  casual and elegant elements to create a cohesive collection.
