Fly me to the moon, Chanel, and don’t take me back!
I always get excited about a Chanel show. It has it all, the clothes, the scenery, the music, the whole atmosphere is magical. But with this one, Karl outdid himself. I always wonder what will be the next theme, and what will the Chanel team now will think of, but I never possibly imagined that they will actually launch a rocket!

You meow meow, I Miu Miu!
This show combined two of my most favorite things in the world : Fashion and Hip Hop. Models walked on the beats by De La Soul, and I suddenly had the feeling that I was being transfered back in the late 80’s . What a time to be alive, huh?
With Miu Miu, it’s always fun fun!

Praising the old while blending with the new, on 22nd of February in Milan, Mister Alessandro Michele outdid himself with the latest Gucci show.
Reinventing past trends and fashions and at the same time playing with color palettes so well, Alessandro helped Gucci gain even more customers and admirers. Working for an already established brand, season after season he takes his creativity to the next level, and gives us the chance to peek into his very colorful mind.

Wait, is this Haute Couture or Ready-To-Wear? I’m confused…
The deconstructive collection had it all, pearls, feathers, nylon, lace, knit, wool, you name it, Burberry had it.
If the brand wanted to tell us they can do arsty, they did.
The show began with a very daring trench coat, succeeded by shirts with Mucnch-like portraits, Basquiat-like faces on sweaters, Elizabethan ruffle collars, metal capelets and statuesque outerwear. The bags were outstanding as ever.

With a collection as dark as a moonless night, Alexander showed us again that you can never own too much black. Making it his official color, it’s almost unbelievable how the designer plays with one particular color, season after season.
The party boy of Fashion with this collection tells us that there’s no after party, pants should follow the figure, over-sized jackets are still in and chains make the best bracelets.

If you need a lesson in layering, go to Peter Dundas, and he will teach you.
The Norwegian-born designer ever since he was appointed as creative director at Roberto Cavalli in March 2015, he presents us outstanding collections.
Continuing the legacy of the great Roberto himself, for his Spring Summer 2017 collection, Peter defined what is Haute Boheme. His army of bohemian goddesses wearing skinny scarves and long dresses graced the runway and the boys brought us back in the ’70, where it was all about wide-leg jeans and colorful, printed, sheer shirts.

Welcome to the simple, romantic and magical life of Oscar de la Renta and his 10 helpers (studio team designers). I’m Mademoiselle M and I will be your host.
Held at the Morgan Library in New York, the collection was very beautiful. First it started with few clean white peasant dresses, which for me are epitome of warmer days. Then we were shown more bold designs and colors, black and strong red dresses, and the classic Oscar de la Renta safari jacket and pants.
After them, on the runway walked few oriental princesses, who by the way, were the only models from the collection who wore earrings. Well, they are royalty after all. The dresses, crop tops and pants were amazing, each more beautiful and exotic than the previous.

He is one of the most innovative fashion designers of our time, a cultural icon and film director. Basically he is everywhere. Gaining fame for being the creative director at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, and in 2006 launching his own label “Tom Ford”, he sure made a name for himself, and continues to make clothes that simply amaze me.
For the 10th year anniversary of his label, he ditched the classic time gap between showing the clothes on the runway and hitting the stores. Tom Ford’s new Fall Winter 2016 collection is his first Ready-to-Buy. Personally, I think that this approach is closer to the customers and buyers. Instead waiting for several months for that cute sparkly dress you saw last Fashion Week, you can buy it immediately and wear it with pride. You want it- you get it.
