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
The enfant terrible of fashion brings to the catwalk the magnificence of the Palace, the famous Paris nightclub that in the late 1970s and the mid 1980s was the meeting place of socialites, artists, designers and fashion icons. The models took on the runaway wearing flamboyant pyjama suits, Tuxedo jackets worn over sequins dresses or cinched at the waist with obi belts, men's shirts under transparent tunics and lace skirts. Each outfit seems to impress, seduce and get noticed, preferring... 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
Stephane Rolland staged a show in the spirit of the traditional Haute Couture shows, when models used to walk the runway with number cards in their hands, when their outfits were described to the audience with an announcement made as soon as they stepped on the runway. And while the show's choreography brought us back in time, the Couture offering itself was utterly contemporary. Collection-wise, Rolland went back to basics and showcased his signature styles only - a small offering of 17... 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
Following the trend of these croisière collection, after Chanel at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul and Louis Vuitton at the Bob Hope Estate in Palm Springs, today Dior chose to showcase its 2016 resort collection at the Palais Bulles, Pierre Cardin’s retro-futuristic mansion designed by Antti Lovag in 1975. Palais Bulles, located between Cannes and Monaco, is considered an architectural utopia in which earth, sky and sea meet, a project (ended in 1984), in which the future is built... Read More
Frank Sorbier has made a name for himself with his dramatic and poetic fashion shows, which are rather about creative performances than about wearable Couture pieces. And this season was no different, as Sorbier invited his guest to attend a performance in a theater on the right bank of Paris, which was fusing Africa-flavored music with contemporary ballet. Sorbier actually aimed to pay a tribute to the memory and achievements of the defunct Jacques Mouclier with this performance – 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... Read More
