Every year I religiously follow fashion month, checking every single show on a daily basis and try to take mental notes of new styling tricks and trends, what I should buy for the coming season and what I should write about. Though this year it got kind of hectic with my ongoing sickness and by the time Paris Fashion Week kicked off, there were already too many things to talk about so I decided to wait till the end and make a post of all my favorite individual looks rather than collections and trend breakdowns. I do this every season anyway, save all my “I can use this styling trick” photos and check it regularly, I’ve just never shared it with you guys. So here goes; my 100 best looks from Fall 2017 fashion month to buy (pink, plaid, oversize blazers, sock boots, long fur coats), to admire (Balenciaga, Céline, Ellery, Proenza Schouler), to inspire (one shoulder knitwear, tops over shirts, belts over jackets, monochrome, clashing stripes, luxury kitsch).
Once again I feel great pleasure writing about the coolest Canadians on earth, sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon who gifted the world Beaufille couple of years ago and like most gifts that keep on giving, it gets better and better every season. Their signature flares took a more subtle turn for fall 2017 and emerged as voluminous silhouettes whilst two other Beaufille signatures patent leather and and whimsical cut-outs were as strong as ever. Contrasting stitch details and newly introduced prints – together with over the dress corsets which already seems like one of the biggest trends of the year – elevated the entire collection up up and away. PS: I want those earrings, right now.
It would be a dated (and boring) understatement at this point to say Kym Ellery is the master of flare. When I first saw Ellery yeaars ago I liked the fresh breath of “maximinimal” air it brought to the fashion world but I was afraid (and also curious) to see how she’s going to stay true to her style, keep her signature and still create new silhouettes but somehow on her road to success, she managed to become the master of a lot of other things such as balancing big, strong shapes and quiet, delicate details.
As you can guess from the lack of posts on the blog – or if you’re following me on Instagram – I’m in Turkey for the holidays so my interaction with world wide web is limited to Pinterest lately. Though I started seeing these particular set of looks during my last scrolls, which I thought were beautiful stylings that belong to the same editorial but it turned out to be the pre-fall collection of 3.1 Phillip Lim, so I had to pause my trip for a little while to check out the entire collection and share it here. The masterful layerings and lady-cool attitude is trademark Lim but it’s the denim that makes this collection all the more interesting. Check it out for yourself!
Phoebe Philo must be moonlighting as a psychic for quite some time or has a natural talent for it like she has for many other things because how else can you explain the release date of the Resort collection? God knows we deliberately need something to cheer us up today and for some people that thing is, well, a new Céline collection that would make us look forward to the future. A future where our favorite brands Céline, Vetements, Loewe, Jacquemus and Ellery finally merge into each other, making it easier and cheaper for us to shop. All in one, one for all.
