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.
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!
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.
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!

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.
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.
