Spring 2015 RTW : Milan Fashion Week : Part One

Spring 2015 RTW : Milan Fashion Week : Part One

Milan Fashion Week houses so many big names, it's a delight to watch the runway shows. I very much liked Gucci's show. I'm not a 100% certain if skorts are involved but I love the sheer little dresses with embellishment and the sleek coats. I loved the whimsy aspect of Alberta Ferretti's show with the sheer layers and floral applique, it's not very unique but I'm still very much hung up on that style. Emporio Armani has blues in every possible colour but the separates were second to none. I always have this…Read more

Resort 2015 : Part One

The Resort 2015 collections are starting to trickle in, with the destination cruise collections like Chanel, Louis Vuitton releasing ahead of time. I'm following a new format for my runway fashion posts where I club 10-12 collections in one post. It will be image heavy! If you're looking for specific designers, try the tags. We start off with Dior!   Dior Set upon a cruise over the Hudson river, the collection felt very Dior-esque with its large but soft prints. The minimalism and cuts gave it more edge. I really love the sharp…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Max Mara, Fendi and Just Cavalli

Fall 2014 RTW : Max Mara, Fendi and Just Cavalli

Love these fall collections from Milan Fashion Week, Max Mara in particular. Also reviewing, Fendi and Just Cavalli.   Max Mara It's THE collection for "proper" winterwear. There's wearable oversize and classic fabrics and colours in modern cuts. I also like the more fitted pieces like the olive blazer and grey tweed coat. You also have tweed in the form of a puffer jacket which is fresh. Fendi It's hard to pick one trend here, I like the prints, it's very modern. The more classic pieces with the zipper details feel very nuanced…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Max Mara, Fendi and Just Cavalli

Spring 2014 RTW at Milan Fashion Week : Max Mara, Fendi and Just Cavalli These three collections together project interesting personalities.   Max Mara Mac Mara's collection felt a bit more suited for the colder months and it's clientele. It's minimalistic but very comfortable at the same time. I don't find the silhouettes particularly appealing, but the bright colours and sheer dresses look very interesting.   Fendi Lagerfeld said this collection was inspired by 'Informatics', I'd say more like circuitry. What I liked best were the ombre sheer layers, looks very futuristic. The…Read more
Resort 2014 : Oscar de la Renta, Just Cavalli and Moschino Cheap and Chic

Resort 2014 : Oscar de la Renta, Just Cavalli and Moschino Cheap and Chic

Many of the resort collections seem like an extension of spring and not all together different. Here, I'll be reviewing collections by Oscar de la Renta, Just Cavalli and Moschino Cheap and Chic. Oscar de la Renta Appliques, florals, volume; Oscar de la Renta's resort collection had all that and then some. The asymmetrical peplum is one distinct piece here and while difficult to pull off, it has certain appeal to it. The chartruese kimono style top and blue mermaid skirt seems a bit much but individually I think they are really great…Read more

Resort 2013 : Just Cavalli

This collection was a psychedelic mirrored rage. It had bold patterns and prints all mashed together brilliantly. There was a definite hip hop vibe about the collection. I like the mirrored effect and neon animal print although I don't think I'd dare to wear it. :p The animal print maxi dress at the end is amazing. There were few demure pieces as well with the white fabric and rubber placement which looks like croc skin.                       Image Credit : Style.com | Entire Collection…Read more
