The buzz on this one...it's deafening . Mr Leflufy, (the name alone is worth the price of entry), June 2013 graduate of the venerable Royal Academy Of Arts in Antwerp where his finals show was awarded the 'Louis" award has already wracked up cred at Opening Ceremony. Not to mention the props from the LA scene queens like Cassie who has been papped wearing his "Selena Los Angeles" T. It all speaks to the record speed with which new talent goes viral these days. But beneath the exuberance and sense of spontaneity and play, TI senses rigor -the kind the Royal Academy is well known to inculcate-that signals that the Montreal born Leflufy could be a long distance runner. The aesthetic of the house of Devon explained, after the jump.

TI flashes red alert when an emerging brand also crosses the scanning systems of both the Tokyo Dandy blog in Japan and A Shaded View On Fashion. Of course both those kids were bound to get into the gothness inherent in Corbier Agostini, but more importantly this new label meshes in ideas from the rigorous standards of French couture alongside that marked penchant for Japonisme.

Peet Dullaert is the 24 year old Dutch designer who in only one year of work has set the antennas of dedicated followers of fashion on high alert . Peet is currently deep in the studio prepping his Spring 2014 offering. TI got his attention for a sec in the hopes of unraveling the essence of Dullaert's process. It is a process that presents a kind of classic femininity zapped with the nonchalance, speed and verve of very modern life. Subverting that illusory casualness with an obsessive attention to rigor, quality and detail, Dullaert is that rare young designer with a decided design signature all his very own. Such a precise sense of identity always draws my attention, though every time I have dinner with Peet I'm amazed at the open optimism of his youthfulness against the authoritative sharpness of his clothes. That combination is lethal. Here, he explains its genesis.

Humberto Leon : What was going out in Antwerp like back then? I hear about Antwerp having this really amazing nightlife moment. Does that still scene still exist?
