Spring 2014 RTW : Roland Mouret, Issey Miyake and Sonia Rykiel

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Roland Mouret, Issey Miyake and Sonia Rykiel   Roland Mouret I love the bright pastels used in Roland Mouret's collection. The asymmetric cuts give a really youthful feel to the collection. The dress with the hot pink top and blue print below is amazing. The satin mint dress is also very gorgeous with a fitted sexy vibe.     Issey Miyake The fanned skirts were perhaps the biggest revelation of this collection. The perforated lines give it a wearable metal illusion. But for the rest…Read more
Spring 2014 RTW : Balmain, Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci

Spring 2014 RTW : Balmain, Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Balmain, Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci   Balmain It's a brilliant collection. Using classics like the houndstooth, quilted fabric and giving it a modern twist is always good to see. The chunky zippers and chains felt overwhelming at times but tie in nicely with the outfits. the back leather quilted jacket looks amazing and will sellout fast! The powder blue quilted trousers look so comfy and sophisticated at the same time. I've mentioned this before, ruffles aren't my thing, but the large waves at the…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Ann Demeulemeester, Carven and Paco Rabanne

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Ann Demeulemeester, Carven and Paco Rabanne   Ann Demeulemeester I find this collection very edgy. the prints and sheer panels make it softer and tame it. I like the jackets and coats best. The print velvet black jacket with zippers and the pale grey long coat look really good. Carven So camouflage is in! But it's spring and the bright colours with the modern silhouettes look very fresh. The belt embroidery with the gingham pattern looks really good as well.   Paco Rabanne The patent…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Balenciaga, Bouchra Jarrar and Manish Arora

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Balenciaga, Bouchra Jarrar and Manish Arora   Balenciaga It's a collection that got better with every look. Prints? Ruffles? They were restrained and a the outfits had smartness to them, but to see colour and print was unexpected and wowed people. I love the caplets on the dresses and the sheer skirts.   Bouchra Jarrar Bouchra Jarrar's RTW collections always give a sense of normalcy in comparison to her couture ones. They are extremely wearable but have a similar aesthetic. Zippers and asymmetry were key…Read more
Spring 2014 RTW : Dries van Noten, Rochas and Gareth Pugh

Spring 2014 RTW : Dries van Noten, Rochas and Gareth Pugh

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Dries van Noten, Rochas and Gareth Pugh   Dries van Noten Gold seemed to make a point in this collection. It indicated a different style from the rest, something that set it apart and visually very large and opulent. I love the tribal print top with the beads. The kimono inspired vests are gorgeous as well and I love the bright colour. I'm not too big  a fan of the side ruffles, but I do love them on the sleeves of the mustard dress. Rochas…Read more
Spring 2014 RTW : Cédric Charlier, Vanessa Bruno and Alexis Mabille

Spring 2014 RTW : Cédric Charlier, Vanessa Bruno and Alexis Mabille

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Cédric Charlier, Vanessa Bruno and Alexis Mabille Starting off with Paris Fashion Week!   Cédric Charlier His collections are generally very structural and bold. This time round, there was that same manipulation of fabric to make it more dimensional. At the same time, using sheer layers gave way to a more modern look. I love the high low hems in the light material which makes it flow.   Vanessa Bruno Butterflies! I love how happy this collection is, just the overall vibe. The crop top…Read more
Spring 2014 RTW : Missoni, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci

Spring 2014 RTW : Missoni, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci

Spring 2014 RTW at Milan Fashion Week : Missoni, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci   Missoni There was a new direction for the staple Missoni stripes. This time they were more subtle in the silhouette of the birds and waves, the necklines and in the arrangement of colours. I love the first skirt with the slit and the print.   Salvatore Ferragamo I'm not particularly fond of python prints (fake or real), or any snake print for that matter. It's 100% a result of my Ophidiophobia. That said, I do like the asymmetric pleats…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Giorgio Armani, Blumarine and Gianfranco Ferre

Spring 2014 RTW at Milan Fashion Week : Giorgio Armani, Blumarine and Gianfranco Ferre This post contains Giorgio Armani. Although it's edited, this post will be very image heavy. No mercy for your bandwidth.   Giorgio Armani The same train of thought from the Emporio show seemed to continue here as well. I love the floaty abstract print dresses. The separates in this collection with the shimmer metallic effect looked amazing. Ultramarine blues and hot pink make a great palette! The decorative floral suits and the beaded blazer look incredibly detailed and artistic.…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Moschino, Marni and Dolce & Gabbana

Spring 2014 RTW at Milan Fashion Week: Moschino, Marni and Dolce & Gabbana These fashion posts may not be your cup of tea. But if I told you there is a teddy bear outfit, would that peek your interest? ;)   Moschino Over the top is an understatement. The dramatics aside, the clothes are very chic and on trend. I love the red floral shorts. Of course everyone needs a croissant necklace and a teddy bear collar with a matching cap.       Marni I love the two-tone prints used in this…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Bottega Veneta, Roberto Cavalli and Jil Sander

Spring 2014 RTW at Milan Fashion Week : Bottega Veneta, Roberto Cavalli and Jil Sander I'll be going through the last few collections of Milan Fashion Week. It's going to be epic!   Bottega Veneta I'm not sure if I really like this. I like the play with pleats but it just look too crafty! Even so, I can appreciate the dismantled processor parts. No? I'll be calling them that anyway.       Roberto Cavalli Omg this collection is so beautiful! It has that 20's glam to it with the loose fit…Read more
