Hed Over Heels
New men’s fashion designer is in town, his name is Hed Mayner and he is here to introduce you to your new wardrobe.
After graduating Jerusalem’s Betzalel academy and IFM in Paris Mayner is back in Tel Aviv with a new kind of elegance.
In a conversation with The Garçonnière Mayner points out stages of his life as reference to his style. The craft-surrounding childhood he had in Amoka valley, in the north of Israel gave him the love for creation. The move to Jerusalem introduced him to new perspectives on men’s clothing and different languages of tailoring. Paris is romantically remembered with the easy access to 80′s original fashion magazines and their influence on his work.
The collections itself mixes classical men’s attire with notes on Israeli society - from references to Hasidic dress code elements to army (infamous) dubon raincoats, from deconstructed trench coat to oversize bomber jackets. This intelligent collection is large (30 items) and varied and it is here to help you complete your wardrobe.

Tel Aviv 80′s Galore
Tel Avivian photographer Miri Davidovitz was documenting nightlife and subculture in the city’s 80′s club scene. Inspired by British fashion and magazine photography Davidovitz’s images are bold and raw, with contrasting almost blinding flashes, sometimes even out of focus.
This strong body of work, which is critical for anyone interested in the city’s cultural history, will be shown at the Eretz Israel Museum in a new exhibition titled: “Rock ‘N’ Black – Blowout in the 80′s clubs”.
Castro’s Orient Exspress
As the fashion industry is changing rapidly designers today travel often. From Istanbul to Delhi, Beijing to Porto, Hong Kong to Tel Aviv (via Paris or London) those journeys are a constant flow of influence on the glocal fashion designer.
EAST-WEST-EAST is the name of Castro‘s new collection dedicated to those constant designers’ journeys and to their inspiration. Mediterranean caftans were introduced next to short and chic kimonos, oriental carpet textures, ikat patterns all mixed up into a clean, modern and smartly elegant collection (which is sold already on Castro’s website).
