Safari Chic

In styles and trends on October 13, 2010 at 10:20 am

As seen on the catwalks of the upcoming summery collections, the Safari chic is going to be the leading trend of the next season. Tailored shirts, structured shorts and high waist skirts will be the must have of a trend that comes and goes over the years. Anyway the items for the next summer will be made of luxurious fabrics mixed with printed leather accessories like large comfy bags and high waist belts. Colours will be, of course, all the tones of the sand with a bit of ochre and brown. White is also allowed for a most chic outfit. Cargo pants will be also a stylish option to be matched with a linen beige blazer. Below some inspirations from the Gucci spring/summer 2010/11 collection.

Get ready for the urban jungle, get the look!

In Balenciaga, News&Events on October 7, 2010 at 1:29 pm

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.

John Galliano at Paris Fashion Week 2011

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.

Moschino Cheap&Chic at Milan Fashion Week 2011

In Moschino Cheap & Chic on September 30, 2010 at 1:12 pm

Colour and lightheartedness seem being the main characteristics of the Moschino Cheap&Chic fashion show, that was most similar to party. All the people invited were eating a slice of pizza when the fashion show began. The models were smiling while showing the multicoloured dresses and patchwork items in summer shades like soft yellow, aqua green, turquoise and peach. All the decorations and accessories recall the ocean bottom such as coral and turquoise, while some bags are striped following the navy style. A retro influence is a common element in those outfits fully decorated and completed with a cardigan. Faux coral and turquoise are also enriching necklaces and belts. The entire collection seems being designed for the woman always in holiday, very coloured and lively, well done!

Fendi at Milan Fashion Week 2011

In Fendi on September 29, 2010 at 2:02 pm

The first thing of this Fendi spring summer 2011 collections that catches my attention was the volume of the creations, which have comfortable cuts that are ideal for summer looks. Tunic dresses with just a coulisse highlighting the waist are proposed in summer colours such as aqua green, orange and, the common colour of every collections for the upcoming season, white. Anyway Fendi never compromise on originality and class, and we can notice it in the 70s influences: the main feature of the collection. A closer look to details makes us find an unexpected decoration: the border of some dresses seems to be obtained with fire, creating a burned effect on the fabric. While accessories deserve a closer attention as they are the strength of the label. The iconic baguette bag is proposed in new versions with the colours in vogue while waist belts are essential.

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.
