For Hire

the o.g. j.p.g.

I know the G stands for G-spot, the official name of the lingerie ridden Spring collection of master Jean Paul Gaultier (Yes, I have interned there). But I interpret it as O.G., Original Gangster, because that's what he really is, in fashion, it's understood. Yes, he's the best.

Looking at his current collection which just passed over the runway in Paris, there are so many of his previously used details and ideas, even dating back to the Madonna collaborations which turned out the pointy bras, but everything is a heck of lot more subtle! My man! the orange and white...

I need them tights. With sheer and opaque graphic blocks and stripes! Plus, gimme that sexy denim overall! Stunning! Much more inventive than Ralph Lauren's dusty old barn versions, which carry absolutely no original, exiting new detail whatsoever. can work this...

Those denim skirts are essential too - finally - a long skirt you can walk in! The corset denim jacket is equally a Must-Have.

Thanks for bringing back the Doc Martins boots.

Clothing you wanna wear.

O.G. J.P.G.

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
