Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part One

Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part One

So New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 RTW is almost at the end there have been some really great shows so far. I really liked Escada and the bright colours and prints used. Halston Heritage has such a sleek and modern collection. I love the silhouettes. There's always something to look forward to at a Monique Lhuillier show and the pastel lace gown is just incredible. I could just watch those gowns all day and feel at peace. BCBG Maz Azria has a bit of  a shabby chic thing going on but I…Read more
Spring 2014 Couture : Valentino, Viktor & Rolf and Zuhair Murad

Spring 2014 Couture : Valentino, Viktor & Rolf and Zuhair Murad

Spring 2014 Couture shows have their last stop here! Blown away by Zuhair Murad's collection. Viktor & Rolf had a ballet inspiration while Valentino was musical and operatic.   Valentino The inspiration is very loud and vivid with music and wildlife. I love the burgundy dress with the snake motif running across. The slate grey plane gown was also very elegant, as were the gowns with floral applique and lace.   Viktor & Rolf First off, not a fan of the hair, it definitely adds to the atmosphere and message but gives me…Read more

Hey guys! Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! Here's more from the Spring 2014 Couture shows with collections from Ulyana Sergeenko, Bouchra Jarrar and Vionnet.   Ulyana Sergeenko The collection feels very cinematic and powerful. It's the silhouettes with the right balance of structure and draping. It's also inspired by Central Asia and carries motifs and symbols from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and the region. I love the suits and the powder blue dress. Sergeenko's collections are always a nod to her Russian heritage, but it's nice to see her venture out for…Read more

Spring 2014 Couture : Giambattista Valli, Alexis Mabille and Chanel

The spring couture shows at Paris continued with exceptional collections from Giambattista Valli with his floral magnificence, Alexis Mabille with the artful elegance and Chanel with the icy and young collection. They are stellar and very red carpet worthy! Giambattista Valli It's a collection that any girl would dream off but rather than going the pastel route, Valli used striking contrasts that made the collection bold. I love the draping in the bow shape, almost a peplum but not quite, it looked very elegant. The appliques are placed perfectly really make a statement.…Read more

Spring 2014 Couture : Atelier Versace, Schiaparelli and Christian Dior

I'm back from Jaipur! JLF was really good this time, discovered so many new authors like Philip Hensher, Jim Crace, Jonathan Franzen etc. Also loved the sessions with Gloria Steinem and Amartya Sen. But anyway, I was so pumped about next month because of fashion week that it sort of slipped my mind that the Spring Couture shows take place right now! This actually happens every year, but I just caught it in time this year! Atelier Versace The inspiration for this collection was the iconic Grace Kelly in that classic hood giving…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu   Alexander McQueen You always expect drama and edge with a McQueen collection and it was delivered.   Louis Vuitton The mood was celebratory even though the colour palette wasn't. The detailing with the beading, embroidery and is gorgeous.     Miu Miu The entire collection revolved around this chic Parisian girl and I love the aesthetics. The pastel coats in particular with the knit leggings is a very beautiful look.       Image Credit : Style.com |…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Chanel, Giambattista Valli and Valentino

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Chanel, Giambattista Valli and Valentino   Chanel I like seeing Chanel in pink. The sheer brightness of it was surprising but the less loud shades like purples and berry toned pinks looked really good. I love the pearl accessories in this collection. The array of colours really reminded me of the Alberta Ferretti collection but looked really vibrant. That swimsuit is killer.     Giambattista Valli Feminine clothing has always been his forte and this time round there was symmetric draping, volume and the lightness…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Stella McCartney, Elie Saab and Saint Laurent   Stella McCartney I love the sheer skirts and lace dresses in this collection. It's definitely not out of place with this seasons trends and feels very well put together. I also love the muted pink suit, it looks very chic and dainty.     Elie Saab Every season Elie Saab's collection is what I'm dying to see. Yes, it's always more of the same but how often can a formula work so well? I think the colours…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Chloé, John Galliano and Givenchy

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Chloé, John Galliano and Givenchy   Chloé The show had a very earthly vibe with the colours and the simple plain silhouettes. But it was desert chic in a way which I quite liked.     John Galliano I love the colour palette in this collection. The perforated designs and floral cut outs give a very sleek and feminine look. But the gowns are really gorgeous!     Givenchy Wow, I was blown away by this one! I love the draping and play with fabric.…Read more
