Missy Skins FW15 at Shanghai Fashion Week, Xin Tian Di
Missy Skins is like the super sexy female cousin of Victoria Ivachoff’s previous menswear label, Campaign. The designer is no stranger to the fashion industry, but she’s now geared her creativity towards creating a young, racy leather label that will have girls scantily clad is soft, supple skins… But this aesthetic certainly works in China, and although a leather brand may be an expensive investment, Ivachoff’s research into new kinds of leather (stretch, machine washable, etc.) and treatment techniques gives her a leg up on the competition… not to mention she’s definitely filling a niche in the China market. And although the brand is still young, it’s already debuted at Shanghai Fashion Week to a supportive home crowd that has formed a solid core for this young label. I was a fan of the printed and embossed leather, although the cuts weren’t to my subjective tastes… But check it out for yourself, and we’ll make sure to follow up with this young new thang.
