Marni S/S 2017

I’m yet to see a Marni collection that I don’t like, to be honest I have this positive bias towards anything Consuelo Castiglioni does, but the spring/summer 2017 collection added a whole new dimension to that little obsession. Asymmetric pleats, pouch fanny packs, one shoulders and fall layering all re-imagined and mastered under Castiglioni’s one of a kind vision, this probably is one of the strongest collections of this fashion month.

Rejina Pyo S/S 2017

It’s totally OK if this the first time you’re hearing the name Rejina Pyo but if it’s the first time you’re seeing her pieces, then you must have been looking elsewhere during fashion week because the street style is ALL ABOUT HER now. She is hotter than Céline or JW Anderson or Gucci or any other designer you can think of. From Leandra Medine to Kate Foley, Pandora Sykes to Yasmin Sewell and Camille Cherriere; every single it girl already owns a piece from the S/S 2017 collection and the rest of the more *real* show goers are sporting the shoes and dresses from the fall one so it’s not one of those designer’s good blogger friends helping her get famous thing, she’s officially the next big thing and everyone’s on board. Korean born – London based designer was the first assistant of Roksanda Ilincic before she won the prestigious Han Nefkens Fashion Award through which she was commissioned to create an installation for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Entitled ‘Structural Mode’ this …

Beaufille S/S 2017

Even though I’m not (technically, officially) a Canadian (yet), I probably feel like a native more than most Canadians most of the time. I’m constantly apologizing and thanking for something, I’m getting into hockey discussions on Twitter in August, I’m referring to all Canadian athletes as “us” when watching the Olympics and most of all, I get more proud than anyone else when a Canadian succeeds at something. I’ve been following sisters Parris and Chloé Gordon since their Toronto days and they never failed to impress me, not when the years passed, not when they moved to NYC, not ever. They bring me life every single time.

By Malene Birger Spring 2017

To be perfectly honest, ever since big guns like ACNE left the Scandinavian fashion scene I’m having a hard time finding genuine inspiration from Danish and Swedish brands. I used to wait eagerly for their fashion weeks as it was always full of new ideas from emerging designers but now it seems like they all look the same. Baum und Pferdgarten is a huge let down this season and even though Ganni still seems like the forefront brand of Danish fashion, they can’t make the jump between a local brand and a global sensation. That being said, there are some brands like By Malene Birger who don’t necessarily bring anything new to the scene but is still agreeable simply because they have too much Phoebe Philo in their codes. So now, as I think Copenhagen is in dire need of some new blood, I’m enjoying the beautiful stylings of By Malene Birger and getting ready for fall. I know it’s the Spring 2017 collection but since it’s like a low budget remake of Céline Fall …

Walk of Shame Resort 2017

Russia is a land of mystery in so many ways for so many people, even for their neighbors because as a Turkish girl I still have no idea what to expect other than some silly stereotypes, and that bemusement is what makes promising fashion features coming from the country even more exciting. Fair’s fair, Moscow is relatively new to the scene and not every designer is intriguing or not every fashion girl is as inspiring as Miroslava Duma or Natasha Goldenberg so it may still be an overstatement to declare the city a fashion capital, but few talents make it worth keeping under the spotlight. Designer Andrey Artyomov manages to reflect his creative and humorous vibe from his former styling jobs into unique and wearable pieces of Walk of Shame season after season, making it a celeb favorite especially backed by the entire Russian fashion media. Not hard to see why.
