The designers borrowed this idea also from the Nature, ages ago. All kinds of animal prints have been in for at least 5 years, but in spring 2016 reptile prints will replace tiger and leopard coloration. After viewing hundreds of catwalk looks we’ve come to the conclusion that couturiers went into cahoots and made a collective foray into a giant serpentarium. And while Prada restricts itself to details and furnishings made of snakeskin,Read More
The Kate Bosworth handbag style of having top handles only is sweeping the fashion industry and we are loving it. It is a huge trend, possibly the biggest in terms of SS 2016 handbags and comes in a myriad of designs, from the structured alligator skin Zimmermann and Zac Posen looks to the metallic DVF styling. Tory Burch gives those things a 3D effect, while shimmering silver is what we get to see at Christian Siriano.

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
If you love to explore and want to shed off the mundane moments of your life, stick to the lush and happy green here that certainly has a rather distinct calm to it while still carrying an inspiring sense of curious exploration through things that are lush and brightened by the sun. It is a popular hue and we loved having it appear on the runways for the spring and summer seasons, as it is simply perfect for that time of the year.
Matched with Snorkel Blue, you can definitely see the... 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
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
