Drafting a presentation script and proposal, on a gloomy day, while dreaming of Milles et une nuits but the Ellie Saab version. So much beauty, precision and elegance. Think winged eye-line, good mascara, matte lipstick, long flowing hair especially if your hair type defies gravity and beautifully long flowing gowns. Heavenly sounding music in tune with every move you make is only optional and- if i dare say- imaginery but if you want it, you got it too. Now, for anyone who’s […]
Karl Lagerfeld once said that fashion is about two things: moving forward and the opposite. This can perhaps be explained by that vaguely familiar moment when a sense of deja-vu meets a sense of a new normality and the thrill that both element create. This is collection felt very nostalgic. Looking at it now is enough to make us want to fill our winter wardrobes with 50 nuances of raspberry pink, add some fancy patterns and a cute hat et […]
Olivier Rousting gets it right all the time. While this might suffice to sum up every single one of his collections, he also provides us with the biggest source of inspiration for a dream painted in soft sheer colours on diverse beautiful things of wonder. Between the embellished fringed mini dresses, mini-crinoline skirts and sheer body stocking dress what took our attention was the lace and silk riffle trousers, which goes to show that just like in every perfect dream, […]
Pioneering women who are in charge were the muses of MaxMara aw16/17. In a show where everything was presented with a delightful vibrancy, the key items were the palazzo trousers and overcoats. For example, the patchwork pockets added the right amount of edginess to some staple pieces, particularly when these pockets in chevron pattern appeared against classic muted colours just as they did on strikingly bright garments. While MaxMara connotes coats and most specifically: Camel Coats, MaxMara bursted our expectations into surprises by […]
If you are looking for inspiration this winter, maison Carven offers a subliminal selection that blends the 60s trend, a sporty outlook and classic A line cuts. Among the key items presented (read: coats!!) we saw a range of pieces, enough to make us look forward to cold days. Besides the outstanding shearling coats, the liquorice black vinyl trench coat, the pale lavender tinted puffas, and faux leopard print cocoon shaped coat, there was the most exquisite bobble blend coat made of […]
In its autumn-winter 15/16 collection, A.F. Vandevorst had used distressed and worn texture, monochromatic greys, rich botanical drawn styles and pattern cover-ups. The damask florals and woven ethnic prints, also added a strange yet captivating element to the collection. As my hobbies include preparing for gloomy days by looking back at any dark borderline sinister collections I can think of, it seems to me every elements in this collection align to create dark twisted things of wonder. ph source: vogue
I found this gem of a collection hidden in my drafts and fell in love with it all over again. Its minimalistic appeal embodies the most sublime details and variety in terms of fabrics, cuts and layering, making this collection entirely to die for.
