Despite their simple nature, shorts can still go very wrong. No longer one-type-suits-all, shorts come in a slew of styles, in differing lengths and various fabrics, making them occasion-appropriate for certain functions where a little relaxation is in order. From beach holidays to weekend getaways, summer garden parties to lounging around the home, the short needs just as much attention and planning as one would give their suit. Taking out the difficulties, we’ve compiled a complete guide... Read More
The stripe story for spring is all about coloring between the lines, indeed. Bold, layered shades lend even more interest to this graphic tale.Read More
As many plants are essential foundations for life sources, we research into their growth, needs and exceptional beauty. Botanical illustrations are key as we now look at the florals in a scientific manner. Sketched imagery of other wildlife such as bugs and butterflies also comes into play as the color palette is natural with brown undertones.Read More
It may not be one of the biggest spring/ summer 2016 color trends on the runway, but silver is very much in and seen all over, especially on shimmering fabrics. Dresses of all types appear in silver, on the Paris Fashion Week among others, as per Iris Van Herpen, Paul & Joe, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Saint Laurent, the latter with a tiara topping its gowns. We see the shimmering effects of the silver at the Emanuel Ungaro show, appearing in a crop top twin set and a loose mini dress,... Read More
Fashion is a game or, better, it’s a videogame. Nicolas Ghesquière takes Louis Vuitton into the future. Within the setting of the LV Foundation, the French designer presents one of his best and most accomplished collections since he has been at the helm of the house: women of virtual perfection invade the runway like heroines of a videogame, wearing utilitarian jumpsuits or monogrammed biker jackets, paneled skirts and flouncy tops, or leather shorts and gilets. Little... Read More
Общая тенденция мужской моды весна 2016 – это возврат к просторным силуэтам и ярким принтам. Создавая весенне-летние коллекции 2016 года, модельеры копнули достаточно глубоко в прошлое и взяли в качестве прототипов силуэты мужской одежды из 50-х и принты из 70-х.
We’re throwing the “rule book” out the window that claims you can only wear dark colored jeans in the fall and winter. We weren’t great following rules anyway. But, since it’s spring, light washed denim looks... Read More
Usually the warmer months invite an explosion of colour on the catwalks - but for Spring-Summer 2016 designers seemed to unanimously decide on a more subdued palette, with grey topping the list as the most widely-seen hue. Sure, it's a colour that all men have in their wardrobe already, but next season it's all about how you wear it: varying shades and patterns of grey should be worn all at once to create a look that's big on texture.
There were lots of shout-outs to China in the... Read More
Nothing clinches one’s look like a belt does. It has the ability to balance out, gather up and just set right a tailored creation (especially those parts of us which could be bulging out or worse, even falling about haphazardly). In the process it gives the wearer a business-like air and a smarter look. So we women really have nothing to complain about belts, especially oversize ones, as they do come in handy (and not just to smarten up one’s look but a situation too if it was to come to...

‘Check us out’ or so seems to say Valentino’s eye-catching dress featuring an interesting play of chessboard and geometric artistry, as well as a shirt collar, buttons and a prim belt to boot. Ermanno Scervino meanwhile decides to fashion a wraparound dress from hounds tooth fabric but with an interesting detail – the collars and thick pleats feature an interesting design. And while Emilio Pucci tempts us with a body-hugging sweater flaunting a playful pattern of what appear to be a line of... Read More
Разрезы, разрезы, и еще раз разрезы. В какой–то степени изделия с разрезами можно отнести к изделиям с асимметрией, ведь асимметричный крой как раз и подразумевает наличие множества разрезов, как в коллекциях Proenza Schouler, David Koma, Mugler и других. Асимметрия платья может проявляться в разнообразных аспектах, от самых заметных, когда весь силуэт асимметричен, до незначительных моментов, например, асимметричное расположение пуговиц и других деталей.
Платье может иметь... Read More
