Resort 2015 : Part Two

The resort collections are pouring in! Here are a few more edited down versions of the collections themselves. You can view the previous post on Resort 2015 here. Missoni It’s more than your average “active wear” collection. The Missoni print definitely enhances the appeal. With light knits and lurex, the collection features more comfortable clothing in bright pastel shades. One of the later looks with the indigo blue gown is stunning; perfection in simplicity. I also really like the colourful leopard...

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 suits, the pleated blazer, cinched at the waist. The use of scarves kept the looks very airy and young. Overall, the result is a mix of smart and...

Fall 2014 RTW : Balenciaga, Manish Arora and Ann Demeulemeester

Fall 2014 RTW : Balenciaga, Manish Arora and Ann Demeulemeester

Love these collections from Balenciaga and Ann Demeulemeester. Manish Arora’s will have in a tizzy! All from Paris Fashion Week.     Balenciaga It feels like it’s by Alexander Wang and the colour (which rejuvenated his own show) makes this very appealing. I like the zippers going down the sleeves and the the crosses. The structure feels very macho but the colours give it a young feel. Manish Arora You’ve just stepped into a fun candy...

Fall 2014 RTW : Dries Van Noten, Gareth Pugh and Vionnet

There are some very thoughtful collections like Gareth Pugh and Vionnet. The more relatable but still fashionable Dries Van Noten; all fall collections from Paris Fashion Week.     Dries Van Noten It’s urban chic with the retro silhouettes in geometric lines and bold colours. The outerwear and coats are to die for. The floral separates are my favourites...

Fall 2014 RTW : Cédric Charlier, Guy Laroche and Bouchra Jarrar

Paris Fashion Week fall collections get a start here with Cédric Charlier, Guy Laroche and Bouchra Jarrar!   Cédric Charlier Reptiles recreated using textiles (bad rhyming) and pleating, that’s the inspiration. It’s done quite well too, it’s not out there snakeskin but subtle. I think the overall vibe of a snake is captured very well. But I’m not a fan of the cut-out fur. Guy Laroche Guy Laroche was...

Fall 2014 RTW : Dsquared², Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana

It’s a fitting end to Milan Fashion Week with Dsquared², Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana with their gorgeous collections.   Dsquared² It’s theatrical and fantastic! The opening look of a patient being accompanied by nurses is extravagant. The hospital shackle like bracelets on the knees and hands while being very trendy, are obvious. I love the green gown and the cape with feathers, like an evil doctor of sorts. It’s fun and beautiful at the same time. Can’t ask for more, can...

Fall 2014 RTW : Salvatore Ferragamo, Missoni and Trussardi

Love the Salvatore Ferragamo collection; also reviewed are Missoni and Trussardi from Milan Fashion Week.   Missoni The zig zag can make this collection stand out from a crowd and this time it’s a colourful play of colours and oversize outerwear. I’m not too enthralled by the collection but this collection scores high on the wearability scale, I do like the darker muted warm colours.     Salvatore Ferragamo It’s a very sleek and modern collection. I like the leather piping on the flowing cuts, it...

Fall 2014 RTW : Emilio Pucci, Luisa Beccaria and Sportmax

Hope you’re all having a nice weekend! Fall collections from Emilio Pucci, Luisa Beccaria and Sportmax! All from Milan Fashion Week.     Emilio Pucci It’s hard to pinpoint a look or trend here, there’s such so much to look at. The leather leathers, the print ones, the knit jumpers, ponchos and leather boots! Where so I start? It was mix of north and south with a Scandinavian influence over the knits and the Mediterranean for the lighter ones. I’m just floored by that flowing yellow gown and khaki one donned by Joan Smalls, it’s...

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

Incredible collections from Roberto Cavalli, Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta, all from Milan Fashion Week. Roberto Cavalli’s in particular is amazing.     Bottega Veneta It’s very ladylike, this collection. With just dresses and all in a similar silhouette, it’s been given more depth with the use of patterns in the form of lines, curves and puzzle like arrangements. It’s very wearable, even for workwear. There’s a black and white dress with looks so light, it’s clinched at the waist and looks incredible. The light grey and beige dress with the leather...

Fall 2014 RTW : Etro, Versace and Marni

Here are  three execllent fall collections from Milan Fashion Week; Etro, Versace and Marni! Etro is really iconic!   Etro I seem to perfer collections drawn on culture (when done appropriatelt ofcourse). The tops, long flowing dresses with a myriad of prints and embroidery. It’s a muted and warm collection, makes to think of a sunny place.   Versace With a bias cut mastered, this collection keeps the Versace moto...

Fall 2014 RTW : Blumarine, Emporio Armani and Antonio Marras

More fall madness from Milan Fashion Week, here are collections from Blumarine, Emporio Armani and Antonio Marras!   Blumarine I love the kimono-esque clothes, that gold and black fabric looks so rich. The cape witht he gown is also very impressive. Overall, there are many likeable pieces like the layered mini skirts and lace dresses with the slight ruffle at the...

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...

Fall 2014 RTW : Prada, Costume National and Moschino

Fall 2014 RTW : Prada, Costume National and Moschino

These are some very strong collections from Prada and Moschino. Also reviewing Costume National from Milan Fashion Week.     Prada It’s Prada taking inspiration from art yet again and it’s beautiful. You can see the difference in the feminine sleek clothing and the masculine oversized one layered over it. Eventually it breaks through and merges together to form something very beautiful. I really like the sheer dresses with the...

Fall 2014 RTW : Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Ports 1961

I thought I’d get started on collections from Milan Fashion Week starting with Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Ports 1961!   Gucci My jaw dropped when I saw this, it’s so basic on the outside but just the finesse is so stunning. I love the use of muted pastels, the leather which looks so luxe and structured. Every look is perfection. I really like the coats and that yellow leather...

Fall 2014 RTW : Erdem, Burberry Prorsum and Tom Ford

The final installment of London fashion Week and my favourites Erdem, Burberry Prorsum and Tom Ford.   Erdem Erdem is always very feminine and flattering, no different this time round. The black dress with lace and cut outs in velvet looks amazing. The gold jacquard, embellishments, there are a lot of ideas here and it’s done beautifully. I love it when a collection is so wearable.     Burberry Prorsum All the art is hand painted! You...
