Oversize Belts

10 Jan 2016

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...

Black & White

10 Jan 2016

‘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

Asymmetrical Hemlines

10 Jan 2016

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.

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

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
