Something strange happened to the world in the early 2000’s, maybe it was the economy, the rise of the almighty Internet, or the turn of the century, but people started to lose their sense of style and taste. I was very young at that time, but I remember older girls from my town wearing crop tops and jeans so low cut, that you could actually see the wearer’s natural hair color. Not a pleasant memory, don’t you think so?
Style. We all have it whether we realize it or not. But what exactly is style? How can we define something so simple, yet so complex?
There are many definitions by famous fashion people. Diana Vreeland said that “Style helps you get down the stairs.” Gabrielle Chanel stated that “Chanel is above all a style.” The great beauty Lauren Hutton may have said the most accurate definition for style : “Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. Style is what you choose.”
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.
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.
Over the years, Dior has been in a devoted relationship with modern male style icons, who represent the idea behind the house’s successful male line. For Dior Homme Summer 2017 collection, rapper A$AP Rocky, actor Remi Malek, singer and ultimate style icon Boy George and model Ernest Klimko were chosen to represent the new Dior boys.
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.
Floral prints for spring? No, Vera Wang doesn’t follow the mass.
Famous for her love for black, she found inspiration in the darkest of colors once again. Vera doesn’t think like the majority of fashion people, and rebelled against the light-colors-for-warm-seasons unwritten rule.
In her Spring Summer 2017 collection she used just two colors – black and white. Opposites attract after all.
