We live in the era of ripped jeans, bomber jackets and tracksuits. The boyish the outfit – the better. Grace is very hard to find these days. But the godfather of elegance, Giambattista Valli, is here to bring sophistication back.
Mixing sporty and fancy is definitely the newest old trend! You can see it everywhere – on influencers like the Kardashian klan, the lovely Blake Lively, and the baddest gal ever, Riri, to social media unknowns that keep popping up on my Instagram feed. Everybody seems to wear stilettos to the gym, and tracksuit on meetings.
Pierpaolo Piccoli, Maison Valentino‘s creative director presented the Resort 2018 collection in New York, playing it cool, unlike other houses that choose much more exotic locations. The Big Apple and the fast life one lives there was the inspiration behind his creations.
Cruise shows, the most exciting shows after Haute Couture. Why do we love Cruise shows so much? Because they remind us that summer is very very near, the locations are remarkable and the designer’s creativity is on extremely high level. For its Cruise 2018 show, Dior went full Western.
The location was Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas, California. You know the place where that movie, Gone With The Wind, was filmed. Everything about this collection payed homage to American history, especially Los Angeles’ past. While wearing Lascaux Caves’ animal paintings on their bodies, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s girls invite us to play a game of cowboys and Indians. I’m in, would you join us?
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.
Welcome to Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Garden of Eden! Here fairies wear black, dresses are long and the bigger your headpiece is – the better.
Maria’s Dior couture debut is as magical as can be. Very beautiful, very romantic, very velvet collection.
See the full collection and feel the finesse of these marvelous manifestations of Fashion.
Looking at Prada’s fresh new collection is like browsing through my father’s old picture book. It has it all, the knits, the newsboy’s cap, the waist belt coats, the V-necks and of course the leather.
Since fall is sweater weather, Prada makes sure you buy yours from them. They give us variety of sweaters to choose from, one-colored, multi-colored, with abstract knit, with buttons, without buttons, whatever you desire. And lots of scarves!
