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.

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?

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.
