Aganovich 0.8 SS2013 collection chose the unusual fabric combinations and structural tension have become trademarks of the Aganovich brand. For SS2013 vintage brocade is matched to forest green linen in superimposed panels; sharply tailored half dresses and asymmetrical skirts provide an unsettling terrain of references.
A feminine infusion of crushed pink silk disrupts masculine overtones. Articulated elements elaborate a pre-occupation with puzzles while the thinly disguised spirit of the clown quietly presides over the riddle of the Aganovich woman.
Aganovich is first and foremost a love affair. Nana Aganovich and Brooke Taylor met in a pub in
London in 2002. By 2005 they had decided they wanted to work on something together for the rest of their lives. Combining Nana’s experience in fashion design and Brooke’s in literature they chose to launch a fashion label.
The label is currently stocked in leading multi-brand stockists such as JOYCE Hong Kong and Dover Street Market London and 2012 saw them invited into the first group showroom sponsored by the Federation Francaise de la Couture. In the summer of 2012 they accepted an investment from Hong Kong based group SBM allowing them to move their home and studio to
Paris to further develop the business.

Paul Smith SS2013 campaign shot in London by Paul Smith signifies a move on from the minimalist black background campaigns of the previous seasons. Taking its lead from the men's catwalk show in Paris from earlier this year, the light turquoise hued walls and carpet have been faithfully reproduced to be featured as the backdrop for the models. In one studio, two reproductions of the men's catwalk were recreated, in order to faithfully shoot the still campaign on one side, and video for web content on the other.
Attention to detail was key. The actual carpet from the men's show was brought from Paris in order to perfectly match the look and feel from that day, and continuous lighting recreated the warm, summery natural daylight. A change in approach is the grouping of models for this season. With an array of brightly colored men's suits, six models were chosen along with one girl model in order to create a bright, positive image portraying the variety and depth of color in this season's collections.
