Story time with Ti + Hann


Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin... Ticuta Racovita-Cordemans & Hanne De Wyngaert met while they were studying at the Academia of Fine Arts in Antwerp. After graduation, Ti had to go to a funeral on her birthday but forgot to tell Hann who had already got her a massive birthday cake full of whipped cream. Ti was sad at the funeral but Hann didn't even know so set out on her way with the birthday cake. Alas, en route, she fell down the stairs and broke her arm. Now, Ti doesn't like whipped cream, Hann has a metal pin in her arm and they both work together to make lovely collections.

I love partnerships that have a story behind them, even if they aren't particularly relevant to the collection itself. This collection is their A/W 09-10 entitled 'Cry Baby' and is packed full of lovely, feminine touches in rather masculine fabrics. The heavy wool and leather only enhance the drapes and bows seen throughout.

As always, I love the styling and photography, it's a little strange and you could see it being a storyboard for a silent film.

Have a look around their website for more collections and stories here.

  1. Awesome series of photos! The clothes look good and so do the styling and concept for the shoot. You're right, it's so nice when there's a story behind. Btw, maybe it's just to much caffeine on an empty stomach which is making my brain spin, but doesn't the model in the photoshoot kind of looks like she tripped and fell flat on her face right on a cake full of whipped cream, while she was on her way to a funeral? . . .

  6. Haha, Ioana is right! This collection could be the story board to the story of these designers!
    I love the styling for these outfits. The white face works perfectly with it, and that umbrella is lovely.
    I think by creating all of the dresses in black, it really makes all of the design details stand out. Tha back of that first coat is stunning!

  7. There is a very clear, sharp styling to these pictures which funnily remind me of my friend, a fashion designer in Rotterdam. I wonder why the sentence on the suitcase is written in German.

  28. If I were to describe this design concept, I'd say 'simple drama'- though that seems a bit ironic. But these look like classic pieces!

    Lovely.
