That 70’s show – Prada Pre-Fall 2017

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!

Moisturize through winter

For those of us who don’t have the privilege to live somewhere where there’s no winter, and instead of going outside and enjoy the sunbeams, we curl up in bed with a book and a cup of hot tea, I have some advice. Cold weather is not your skin’s friend. It dries it up, and makes you feel like you are medieval stone statue.

I myself have very sensitive skin, she notices atmosphere temperature changes so good that she can major in meteorology.

I searched and searched for ways to prepare my skin for cold weather and make her look and feel good. And this is what I learned and practice so far :

Moisturize, Drink plenty of water, Eat your vitamins!

ABC of Fashion – A-Line

The dress/skirt shape that looks good on everyone and can be found in almost every collection in the history of Fashion. The A-line.

Although this style exists as long as people thrive on this planet, the term was first used by His Majesty Christian Dior, to describe his Spring 1955 collection.

It was the biggest trend those days! Known as “most wanted silhouette in Paris” it was widely popularized by Yves Saint Laurent, who back then was the hottest designer.

The Originals

Back in the days when there were no Instagram, hashtags and followers, the fashion industry was not like it is today. The term “social media” didn’t even existed, unlike today when it’s very important for a model to have 300 000 + followers on various social networks. Models in the 90’s didn’t have to take behind-the-scenes selfies and couldn’t tag the makeup artists and hairdressers. But they were Supermodels, and that was far more important than likes, comments and shares.

Fashion and Art, Gustav Klimt

Two timeless social phenomenons, both adaptable to changes and both expressing their time. Fashion and Art. Mothers of an aesthete.

I fell in love with them from my early days, back in the time when my mom used to read me stories and I asked her to show me our “History of Art” encyclopedia.

And there I stumbled across one painting that took my breath away even though it was a print in a book. Her majesty, The Kiss by Gustav Klimt.

Chloé Spring Summer 2017

So sweet, so chic, so French! So Chloé!

In the fashion world, there is a saying “Chloé girls are the prettiest.”

With clothes like these, it’s not very far from the truth.

This fashion house, founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, season after season provides us with outfits that represent clean French style, we so eagerly want to adopt.

The dresses, shirts and pants have such a fluidity, that they even seem unreal. While the models walked down the runway, one could notice the delicacy and gentleness of the materials.

Roberto Cavalli Spring Summer 2017

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.
