SPRING SPRING SPRING

Hello Spring... 

Despite the grey weather forecast this week…, we’re soon to enter the Spring season! Yay! 

Let’s hope the coming weeks will be warmer and sunnier… But aren't we always surprised by the sudden changes of skies especially here in Shanghai… ?! 

Waiting for the sun to come back, we’ve asked Maude & Helene, the designers of MOHME, for some warm and exciting news about the brand, fashion and more… 

What are you working on right now? 

Maude : Last week was dedicated to the research of new fabrics for the coming seasons and this week is more about working on the sketches and finalizing technical files to launch the last samples of next collection…it is a very creative period and we love having cisors and pens in hands it’s a fulfilling part of the job, love it ;-) 

What are the new plans for MOHME ? 

Helene : We’ll try to get you a glimpse of next season main fashion trends, unveil the new SS17 collection and we’ll be participating in exclusive events that we are dying to tell you more about very soon… (COMMON RARE designer market, KTGA, MEKA brunch, secret rooftop sales, garden parties…) 

Fashion week has almost landed in SHANGHAI, no fashion show for MOHME this season? 

M & H : a fashion show is a real project and investment so you really need to spend a large amount of time (and money :) in planning such event, as we are launching our second collection we think it might be a bit early for us to jump onto the stage but be patient because we definitely plan on doing it very soon…;-) 

We’re sure you’ve looked for inspiration among recent runways, if you needed to choose one catwalk from other cities fashion week to watch which one would it be? 

Maude : London, totally love the Stella McCartney show, made of Stella’s distinctive style, lot’s of tailored pieces, English autumn colors and royal horse prints, beautiful shades of grey, camel, kaki balanced with some blue, burgundy and greens. Some oversized parts but still very feminine in the attitudes. Loved the square shoes, sneakers and puffy clutches. Feminine, Masculine, and joie de vivre, loved the place, the lights, music and choreography it was a really nice show very inspiring… 

Helene : Milan, Gucci, retro ethnic making extra fancy silhouettes. Loved the color combinations, superposition of patterns and prints, asian inspirations, embroideries, embellishments…Particularly loved the reptile ankle boots, the sporty stripes, and the use of pearls and glitter, also noticed the incredible headbands and stockings… 

What is your best fashion item of the week? 

Maude : my plastic yellow rain boots, totally appropriate ;-) brings light to darker shades of outfits these days!! 

Helene : my golden studs tights, they bring fancy details and rock attitude to my transitional season looks.. 

What’s your favorite song of the moment? 

Maude : These days I like to listen to “ Chained  to the rhythm " of Katy Perry featuring Skip Marley…makes me dance, dance, dance to the distortion…it gives me a lot of energy… 

Helene : I really like the song of Nicolas Jaar “Mi moujer”, like this artist, and its electro sound with a bit of Spanish vibes. I listen to this song on my morning walks to the office, gives me motivation to start the day… 

What’s the latest movie you saw and loved ? 

Maude : I’m sorry it’s a very sad movie but I totally loved it “ I miss you already” with Drew Barrymore, loved the 2 actresses and the pitch about friendship, disease and life, was a beautiful one, completely recommend you watch it, it’s a must see! 

Helene : Totally loved the movie “lions” and its main male actor Dev Patel… Indian lost child story and destiny. Moving film about a deep and interesting subject “adoption” and more broadly about Indian lost child cause. The image and realization are great, so is the casting. Moreover I love the fact that it is inspired from a real story makes it more poignant 

 

Hope all of these little talks might bring you new things to look at this week, fashion week’s coming, are you going to some shows?? 

MOHME is still having its fantastic winter sales, up to 60% off until the 31st of March, 10 days left to enjoy such nice discounts!! hurry up
