Patent leather and masculine attitude make the Balenciaga’s collection different from the others presented at the Paris Fashion Week 2011. Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director of the fashion house, have designed very original creations, proposing a different idea of sensuality. Models come out with boy’s haircuts, flat boots and black outfits brighten up with vivid colours. There are many men’s items, like the shirts, presented in dotted and coloured patterns, made of sheer fabrics. All the collection expresses a real androgynous charm. White on the final pieces of the collection, follows the main trend of the next summer: the total white look.

Valentino at Paris Fashion Week 2011

In News&Events, Valentino on October 6, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Ruched mini-dresses and shirtdresses are now the central pieces of the new Valentino spring/summer 2011 collection presented at the Paris Fashion Week. The designers, Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, offer very delicate styles that are perfect for the young woman. A subtle femininity comes from those creations adorned with ruffles, ruches and embroideries. While sheer fabrics and lace are the materials that give a special allure to the short and long dresses. The dominating colours of the Valentino’s summer are white, beige, black, peach and, of course, red. While some vivid colours on accessories create contrasts with the dusky colours of dresses. The final creations of the show are very chic long gowns, perhaps we will see them on the red carpet.

Costume National at Paris Fashion Week 2011

In Costume National, News&Events on October 5, 2010 at 1:01 pm

Ennio Capasa with this new collection demonstrates once again that “less is more”. Those simple cuts are enriched with vivid and plain colours like beige, turquoise, orange, red, blue and black which are the main features of the collection. Silk, leather and organza are combined creating shiny and opaque contrasts between the tops and skirts of dresses. While blazers have special crossed band fastener instead than buttons. Soft long dresses in those bright shades are essential chic pieces of the collection but the most elegant outfits are undoubtedly the total black ones with sheer details on the neckline and on the sleeves. Costume National used minimalism in a classy way proposing very elegant options for the next summer.

In John Galliano, News&Events on October 4, 2010 at 12:41 pm

Inspirations from the beginning of the century are the allure of the John Galliano spring/summer 2011 collection, in which navy jackets, Nippon influences and starlet gowns are mixed together for an unexpected effect. All the models seem to come from old times, when the fascination for Japan, floral patterns and subtle fabrics were the characteristics of fashion. Beautiful prints adorn silk dresses and trousers, while 20s inspired gowns are shown off for evening original looks. Fine embroideries decorate those John Galliano dresses, while lace ruffles come out short skirts. Undoubtedly one of the most interesting collections presented at the 2011 Paris Fashion Week.

Versace at Milan Fashion Week 2011

In News&Events, Versace on October 1, 2010 at 1:46 pm

For the spring/summer 2011 collection Donatella Versace has left apart ruches and ruffles, preferring rigour and precise cuts. The entire collection seems being dedicated to Gianni Versace, due to the fact that is whole decorated with the Greek pattern that he loved. Although dresses are really severe and strict, sensuality comes through anyway showing off an elegant and original woman. That was the focus of the designer, who has matched brilliantly vivid colours and decorations with cut-outs that expose the back and the shoulders.

Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week 2011

In D&G Dolce&Gabbana, News&Events on October 1, 2010 at 10:02 am

Delicacy and innocence are the first sensations coming out from the Dolce & Gabbana 2011 collection. Pure white is all present on the creations and dominates the most part of the collection, while black, floral patterns and animal prints are proposed on some creations. However, the point in common are undoubtedly the embroideries. Those embroideries once have decorated blankets, tablecloths, nightdresses and petticoats. Our grandmas used doing them themselves and trying teaching us how to decorate the linen. This was an old Italian tradition that brings many memories to mind, and now it’s proposed on the catwalk in a different key. The collection follows the fall winter 2010 collection which was characterized by the lingerie style. The final pieces are instead decorated with rhinestones embroideries that light up the delicate fabrics of the elegant gowns and mini-dresses.

Gianfranco Ferrè at Milan Fashion Week 2011

In Gianfranco Ferré, News&Events on September 28, 2010 at 10:27 am

The Gianfranco Ferrè collection, presented at the Milan Fashion Week has something that distinguish it from the others. The feature is undoubtedly the class of those creations which are simple and finely decorated at the same time. Black and white is, even in this collection, widely employed in dresses and gowns. But, in this case, black is a ribbon that crosses the silhouette on a white chiffon. Trenches and women suits can’t be missed while dresses are the main focus of the two designers, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. Python leather, macramé and sequin are the elements that cover dresses, with fine embroideries and plisse. Precious materials on soft fabrics that embrace gently the body falling slightly. A great collection that deserves our attention.

Madonna for Dolce & Gabbana 2011 Campaign

In Dolce & Gabbana, News&Events on September 9, 2010 at 9:56 am

The Dolce & Gabbana advertising campaign was one of the most awaited of the upcoming season. It stars Madonna as the protagonist of the photo shoot, playing the role of a mother in an Italian family, showing intimate moments of family’s life. Steven Klein portrays her as a tender wife, dancing and having a walk with her husband. The atmosphere of those pictures seems to come out from the 50s. They are placed in an Italian context celebrating the nationality of the two designers and the made in Italy production of their creations. Besides clothing and accessories are displayed in normal life situations while Madonna is cleaning the floor or looking after her child. The contrast between the fame of the singer and the moments captured in the pictures is the main feature of the campaign. While the same contrast is also applied to the use of high fashion clothing for daily outfits. Surely, like any other Dolce & Gabbana campaigns, it can catch our attention thanks to the unmistakable style and the very original pictures.
