Lobra in the making – FW12/13 Collection

We are so excited about the new collection “Club Silencio/Red Velvet Hotel”. This weekend me and my team have put the last details in for the Lookbook shooting of the FW12/13 Collection. This collection will be darker, more sensual and mysterious with alot of red, gold, black and exotics. Here are some of the pictures from the making of the Photoshoot of this collection that will launch during Stockholm Fashion Week 7-8 february.

To me being a designer and create collections is also about conceptbuilding and storytelling. Each season I build a story and around that I create a world to where I want to invite people. So here is a sneak peek into the world of Lobra for Fall/Winter 2012/13.

My best friend - The Ruffler

Late night work by the fire

A red voluptious satin duvet for the Red Velvet Hotel mood. I am very happy for the Sewing Machine Ruffler so I didnt have to make 9 meter hand pleated edges. The bottons was all fabric covered to match the duvet and fastened by my hand. Many late hours on this piece. It will look so lovely on the shooting I am sure.

Hand embroidered italian crepe in silk. So lovable!

This time I decided to have a collaboration with the students at  sewing school Textile/Design at Jenny Nyströmsskolan in Kalmar that worked together with me on the outfits for the Photoshoot. They did a great job and am looking forward to 2 dresses tailormade for me to wear during Stockholm Fashion Week.

Lobra Made in Italy -1

These are some pictures from my research. It is amazing to come to the shoe district of Civitanova Marche where there are leather suppliers in every corner. Just like a candy store for a designer. It is important to keep focus while here, not hard to go bananas when you see all this qualities and colours.

I heard some designers have gone into crisis while here and lost the head among leathers, textiles, closures and buttons …oops that was me… luckily I am back on track again. But it is a lovely place to loose the head at.

It is also a blessing to meet all this specialized people who have dedicated their life to this business. How they have such love and passion for what they do. All the love they put into the work and the details. This is the soul of the true Made in Italy and I am so happy to be a part of this. It is truly inspiring to be surrounded with talented craftsmen all day and all new things I learn every day.

Lobra Love for the Made in Italy

At one fabric supplier there was this statue, details matters even at a warehouse

I love how the leathers are coordinated by colour

Patents ... like candy

And all that glitters..

From Rome with Love

Finally here again, in Rome the Eternal city. I keep this city very close to my heart since the time I lived here. Rome to me is a place where you always have a great time and find inspiration and alot of love. It is the mix of history and the metropolitan pulse that brings the best together and yet Rome always feels like a cozy city. Easy and friendly and it brings you home with love, inspiration and fantastic tastes.
