Mayo Loizou and Leszek Chmielewski tandem took first baby step in Tokyo, where in 2005 their Marios boutique was launched. They are based in Milan now, but they work with polish artist on a regular basis. Karol Radziszewski's drawings served as prints for their 'DIK' collection in 2009, whereas pieces that we present in this post are effect of collaboration with photographer Kuba Dąbrowski ('Nowhere' s/s12). We have a soft spot for pleated skirts in general, but these are just the most unusual and striking ones we've seen for a good while. We put it's magic down to breath taking views and hipnotic, neet folds. On overall, it has something of a fragile origami look.

Can you think of anything more effortless and relaxed than beloved jeans? All of this off-duty charm is in little denim dress too (mini simple 3/4 sleeves and tent-like-shirt with a bow are our denim darlings of the moment). Nothing nifty, nor quirky. Since a dress line is kept clear and simple, we thought it would be intresting to pair it down with paint-splattered broques. We like the messy low-key vibe of this sort of combo. Is there anything better than simplicity with an artsy 'devil-may-care', 'couldn't-care-less' attitude?
Side note: Paint-splattered shoes are from Alexander McQueen's old collection, they made really big appearance some time ago, but we think the idea is timeless, thus we've dusted it off. Have a look at TheDandyProject's shoes inspired by them, really lovely. Take lace-ups, a brush, a paint and off you go to your own 'Pollock' project.

Country is a great background for denim so let's turn to miss Parton. We heared 'Jolene' a couple of times in one of our favourite East London pub and were taken aback by lyrics, so frank, poignant, filled with helplessness...normally not huge fans of country, but this simple song has powers to move your heart.
Lana del Ray
Robert Kupisz doesn’t like rigid categories. For his 44' collection, drawing inspiration from Warsaw Uprising, he maintained silhouettes to stay grunge, hobo and a dash nonchalante at the same time. Heavy sheep coats with loose dresses are romantic, shirts tied around waist – 90s. White & black school uniforms, adorable stockings and plaits are marked with something of ‘the end of innocence and youthfullness’ melancholic tone. The most attention-grabbing were eagle logo t-shirts (polish emblem).
Of course, wearing a t-shirt won’t make a patriot out of you, but when it comes to clothes, it’s always about how they make you feel. We all love to grumble about what’s ours and what we take for granted, but sometimes it’s worth to change strategy, and be pround of who you are and where you are from. Those little eagles can do:) we’re not big fans of sport, nonetheless we love watching and cheering up for our white-and-red team playing football, or ski-jumping (or, slightly on a different tack, singing during our favourite guilty-pleasure Eurovision Song Contest). We love how the spirit goes up in those moments when the nation unites and you can feel the sense of belonging, group crossing fingers, hoping…side note: if you plan on visitng
during Euro2012, those t-shirts would make a marvellous fashionable souvenir, we are just saying…). Have a look at collection and some snapshots from polish tv blockbuster ‘Czas Honoru', have a listen to beautiful music below. Poland
