Julien Fournié - The New Generation of the Parisien Haute Couture

ANDREA JANKE lovin Julien Fournié Haute Couture Fall 2010

the new generation of the Paris Haute Couture. A fabulous collection including sophisticated fur details like mink and fox-intarsias. 

"Inspired by martyrdrom, Julien Fournié elicited beauty from darkness and sadness usually associated with the suffering of death on account of adherence to a cause, especially to one's religious faith.

Using blood red crystals on embroideries and handpainted inked shadows to represent the scene of the slaughter, Julien Fournié did not include any references to religion but blended street culture with the use of big zippers strategically placed as perpendicular or diagonal slashes. 

Whether by choice or by accident, Julien Fournié has become a harbinger of the new generation of designers in the Paris haute couture scene who emerged post the Great Recession." (Source:

"Un nouveau défilé parisien en quasi plein air, Julien Fournié a pris ses quartiers á la Cité de la Mode et du Design, pour présenter á la lumiére du jour et en bord de Seine les premiéres pieces Haute Couture de sa marque éponyme. Une collection sous le signe de la vulnérabilité, toute en transparence, délicatesse et sur fond d'opera."  (Source:; Editorial by Mélody Kandyoli)

FENDI - Fur Creativity


ANDREA JANKE presents FUR Creativity 
                                    FENDI by Karl Lagerfeld


           My favourites fur details from Winter 2009

"... Their clothes, mostly dark, were cut with narrow flying panels, oddly textured with what looked at a glance like worn-through or dust-spattered fabrics and frayed edges. 

The furs, of course, are as extraordinary as ever - technical feats that merge sable and fox, or use technology to make white gold cling to mink. On the other hand, this collection has moved far beyond being a mere foil for Fendi's craft skill as a furrier."
