Fur fun

10 Jan 2016

And while there’s still some ice and snow left after global warming, we might as well enjoy the Alpine heights and the even loftier Everest dimensions. Allowing you the option of keeping warm as well as stylish this wintry season are the world’s leading fashion brands unfurling the most gorgeous designs. We start off with Max Mara’s printed wrap-around creation which artfully combines pleats to keep you snug and enfolded in its luxurious depths. In its stride, Christian Dior’s soft,... Read More

Luxe Leather

16 Nov 2015

It’s got the shine, that luxe look and the style. So what’s not to love about Aigner’s autumn / winter collection? Titled as Genesis, it celebrates the brand’s DNA and flaunts that element that says joie de vivre. It is dedicated to the founder of the brand, Etiienne Aigner and his native country Hungary, its people, landscapes, and even its traditional garments. And so we have a very pretty, attractive dress in an intense blend of brown and maroon, with intricate floral cut-out patterns... Read More

Warm It Up

16 Nov 2015

Max Mara’s muse was no doubt Monroe‘s picture taken by George Barris way back in 1962 of her clutching a coat fetchingly, and its sensual overtones (couldn’t ever have been otherwise with that lady). But the brand did offer plenty of options such as slim midi skirts and fitted knits with double breasted short coats offering snug comfort in soft coal grey notes. Just  perfect.   

Vivienne Westwood pays tribute to the ‘Time to Act’ demo against pollution and climate that took place in... Read More

Grafitti Lore

16 Nov 2015

DVF is the original champion of dresses, for who can forget her line, “Be a woman. Wear a dress.” (The fact that some of us could look hideous in one is of course a secondary issue). Her collection is rightly titled as “Seduction” and need we say more? So of course they are a perfect tribute to her famed wrap dress, and are feminine, sensuous and utterly must-have. From which we picked a dark number for you with tiny dots flaunting bold foliage motifs on one side and clinched by a satin belt... Read More

Fur Ever

16 Nov 2015

Inspired by the Florentine house’s fondest piece of clothing – the duvet which was fashioned into an unbelievable number of designs, Ermanno Scervino also presented warmer ensembles and fur pieces. Such as a dress in striking combo of black and white decked with hounds-tooth motif all over and matched by a furry red number with a dash of black. Really cool we declare.

Taking a cue from the past (more precisely the Renaissance period) for the present, Alberta Ferretti unfurls a... Read More

Babydoll Forever

16 Nov 2015

Giorgio Armani once said “Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.” And he definitely made sure of that. His FW 15/16 show was defined by collar art and surface highlights turning into a catwalk extravaganza, and why not, as the house marks four decades this year. Slick glamour highlighted an array of statement outerwear for both day and night. We select a shocking pink number featuring a wave of pleats moving across the chest while a sparkling fabric closely hugs... Read More

HYPE IT UP

It all depends on how you view it. You can be innovative with just about any fabric or garment by turning it into eye-catching attire. Never mind if it were to emphatically emphasize those curves that you were so very shy to flaunt earlier…

 The Florentine house Ermanno Scervino fashions its favourite garment, the duvet into alluring knee-length skirts, zipped pullovers and midi-skirts, upping the seduction quotient just that much more. Teamed up with tops you’d want to grab by the... Read More

Caped Crusade

21 Oct 2015

History may have seen several crusades over the years. But fashion decided to notch it all up one knot higher with its very own Caped Crusade presenting quite a tempting line up…

DSQUARED2 teams a rare combo for the season – the Canadian Red Indian tribes with all that goes with British aristocracy. The result is a collection that’s sure to make you feel as good as Lara Croft, the tomb raider. 

Bold, emphatic and accenting every aspect of a design, there is naturally lots of... Read More

21 Oct 2015

 To start off, British designer Vivienne Westwood’s irrepressible love for-all-things-punk was on full display in a grand cape that swirls all over in her Gold Label Show at Paris Fashion Week titled simply as Unisex. Highlighted by humungous red blooms it is designed to proclaim your presence while just hinting at the wearer’... Read More
