Just Cavalli Fall 2015

Or you can also be a taupe eyed girl or an orange eyed girl but blue or black seems out of picture for fall 2015 season. The tone and the amount of brown is the tricky part that makes this runway trend hard to apply IRL, personally I’d look totally washed out with a brown eye makeup but there’s no denying that it’ll be a huge beauty trend this fall. My personal favorite is Derek Lam’s subtle cateye eyeshadow or Altuzarra’s part grey part bronze look.

Best of London Fashion Week Fall 2015 Streetstyle69

First of all I’d like to point out the struggle I went through to find a title for this post that is not “London Calling”. Believe me, it’s almost impossible. The one I came up with isn’t less tacky but still, it’s something. Secondly, I found London Fashion Week street style a lot more boring (never thought I’d say this) than New York, even though New York was freezing, so it was a lot easier to narrow down best looks (to 100 photos, of course, it wasn’t THAT boring). Sweaters and scarves made headlines on the streets of London instead of the endless line of furs witnessed in the big apple and it made me realize that I HAVE TO move somewhere with a regular winter. I can’t keep living like this.

Joseph Fall 2015 RTW 7

London Fashion Week is officially over as of today and I’m continuing the gather your favorite looks from the favorite collections in one post to save space move. I’m going to prepare a trends of F/W 2015 post at the end of fashion month but for now I have to give credit to some swoon worthy, sometimes psychedelic sometimes minimal but definitely not boring collections of London runways. Joseph and Thomas Tait are my two favorites; former being a beautiful representative of Scandy chic, latter doing justice to his LVMH prize with a classic (à la Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton) collection.

Ports 1961 Fall 2015 RTW 5

Best part of fashion weeks? You have something to get inspired from, something to write about every single day. Worst part of fashion weeks? You have absolutely too many stuff to write about in one day so you struggle to keep the blog clean and pick the one you like the most. Since my blog doesn’t have a magazine format (yet) I don’t want to crowd it so here goes; my friday & saturday London fashion week highlights with Ports 1961, J.W. Anderson and a CSM graduate, Paul Thomson in three sentences.

Ports 1961: a minimalist porn starring solid colors and neat shapes spiced up with diagonal or single sided frays on fluid dresses, pom pom appliques on structural coats, unexpected slits and some “other” twists and turns.

J.W. Anderson: nothing like you’ve seen before from him yet has Anderson all over it, including the courage to refuse 70’s by embracing a very new wave 80’s style and still managing to make you lust after the collection even though you swore you’d never touch anything that has 80’s reference on it.

Paul Thomson: you’ll understand why I picked him among 15 CSM graduates when you see the final piece of his collection is not actually shearling but a coat made of yarn by melding each of the Scottish designer’s knitwear techniques.
