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).
The Mood Of Time
You can always count on Miuccia Prada to set the tone and express the mood of time.
Annie Leibovitz shot Prada’s menswear Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, where Scottish actor James McAvoy is starring next to concrete walls and a very moody backdrop.

Langhendries’, an ex-florist and a graduate of Floral Design Management studies, surprises his costumers with a small bag of flower seeds, attached to every pack, spreading some floral magic.
Boys Of Shenkar
Not less than 9 men’s collections (out of 40!) were presented this week in the graduate show of the Department of Fashion Design at Shenkar College. A very fine and impressive harvest which differs in style and quality, but unites in a a certain matureness that will hopefully boost the local men’s fashion scene.
Here a few of The Garçonnière’s favorite looks:
