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
Tenderness is the key word to interpret this Gucci collection. Alessandro Michele continues the narration he started last January and confirms his talent in interpreting today’s aesthetics and tastes. Under the pouring rain in a new venue, an old tram depot in Milan’s outskirts, another chapter of the Gucci story is being written. La dérive, that is, losing oneself, is only the beginning of a narration that sums up all that Michele has done so far: an exploration made of vital traces,... Read More
As always, Alexandre Vauthier collections are all about French savoir-faire paired with a certain edginess and a touch of glamour. This time around, his women's Couture offering came with a particularly sensual flair, as outfits evolved from street-wear inspired looks to more romantic ones. On the runway, his fierce and ultra-feminine Haute Couture pieces were quite appealing – think ultra-short and floor-skimming cocktail numbers in shiny dévoré optic or leggy and silk gowns with crystal...

Lilah Wingfield, English explorer of the last century, and her travel diaries inspired this Couture collection of Elie Saab. Indian inspirations dissolve the Victorian heritage of the clothes and make the entire collection fresh and light. On the catwalk, mini lace dresses, long tunics covered in crystals and wide pants to wear with sari tops. There are also elegant lace and crystals gowns, unique creations that we will soon see on the red carpet at the Grammys.Read More
A woven bag is a wardrobe must-have. And the best thing is, you don't even need the beach to carry one. They work just as well in the city and can even double as work bags. The beach bag screams good vibes and sunshine. A whole lot of textured looks combine to pull together the Dolce & Gabbana look as well, what with the tassels, embroidery, and golden chains all around. The bags are certainly carrying some sexy bags. What if we saw two similar sized bags stuck together though? That is... Read More
Chain straps appeared as a trend during the 2015 seasons as well, so we were hoping it would carry on with a little bit of something new. That is exactly what happened as we combine the featured favorite chains with fringe for example at DVF, or with oven shaped designs as seen at Betsey Johnson. Even the Jeremy Scott flowers have chains to hold on to.
Pretty fringes added create colorful flowers at Monique Lhuillier, while we see a whole lot of chains appearing at Alexander Wang,... Read More
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.
Large totes anyone? Opening Ceremony has some awesome styles for... 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
