Jantine van Peski studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute before attending the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, where she graduated in 2011 from a master (MA) degree with ‘WIRES 10.0’ collection. Her work focuses on silhouette and craftsmanship, with great attention to materials and techniques used.
Jantine’s was strongly influenced by the textile sculptures from the 1970’s and specifically the macramé-technique. 
That was the starting point to construct pieces of clothing out of cord and yarn, straight from the body and using only one type of knot.

Cooler Weather Brings Haute Fashion: That’s How The Saying Goes Right?

Edited by: Jessie Thorpe of Denimology
Cooler weather has made it’s way in and it leaves me feeling a definitive need to dress up lavishly. Some girls have been frocked fancifully for the entire month of Dressember. I think it’s important to make the effort to look extra stylish in the Winter months.  I’ve been decorating myself glamorously in festive jewel tones: emerald, crystal, ruby with gold making and appearance every now and again also. My wardrobe has definitely become darker as I use lots of navy and black basics letting my accessories do the talking.


Thanks for picking me! sorry it was late!

_Valentina Poletti

_Currently based in Berlin, Valentina Poletti send us her final project to review and we were thoroughly consumed by her concept and execution.
 Besides the conceptual garments and photos she has collaborated with Carolina Amoretti to make a amazing video bringing together different environments that reflect the concepts of each look.

“My collection shows the two personalities of the same outfit, one a hostile and complex geometrical city representing urbanization and static routine and the other in a natural and free landscape which represents escapism.”
