Best of PFW Fall 2015 Part III

Anyone else is feeling like they’ve been run over by a truck and that truck stood over them for almost a month even though all they did was sit on the couch and make posts? Well I am but thank god it’s over now. Fashion month has officially ended, and as much as I like to get tiny little orgasms every time I see major fashion inspirations (which peaked this last week), I’m relieved now that I can go back to my normal schedule and instagram/website checking frequency. As you can guess the busiest, and the hardest in terms of choosing the best, couple of days were the final 3-4; from perfectly nonchalant Stella McCartney to Chanel‘s brasserie, from crazy furs at Louis Vuitton to ever beautiful Valentino (and Zoolander), from my favorite Ellery to Givenchy, I still don’t get the styling at all but I like the clothes in general Saint Laurent, Acne (and nipples) and even Hermes, first time from the talented hands of former The Row designer Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski – EVERYTHING has …

Best of PFW Fall 2015 Part II

Another 3 days have passed and another wave of disbelief about how many groundbreaking collections can fit into those little 3 days has hit me. (And major shows like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Céline or Saint Laurent still haven’t taken place yet.) In this second part of Paris Fashion Week, my favorites were Paco Rabanne which hasn’t shown anything spectacular per se but just keeps on catering to my inner boyish Carrie Bradshaw, Vanessa Bruno because, duh, Parisian chic, Rick Owens because he introduced my all time second favorite color (gold) to his voluminous, structural signature pieces, Raf Simons for pushing the limits of ugly elegance, a term btw I never knew existed until 2 years ago, at Christian Dior, Loewe because it’s basically a more colorful J.W. Anderson and there’s nothing wrong with that. Isabel Marant was what you probably have expected from her, which should get boring but still it’s pretty enough to make you get over that. Balenciaga was boring for me in shapes but really interesting in details and finally, I think …

Best of PFW Fall 2015 Part I

It’s just been two days since Paris Fashion Week has started and I already have a buttload of material to make a post about. Every season whenever the calendar hits the final week of fashion month I instantaneously realize (again and again) why Paris is the last city to show, it’s the superstar. From LVMH shortlisted young Jacquemus‘ bizarre, conceptual NSFW collection to veteran Dries Van Noten‘s Asian-Safari, Lemaire‘s much coveted contemporary classics (with the boob bag?!?!) to Nehera‘s solid and easy Margielaesque pieces, Anthony Vaccarello‘s only-legs-for-days-allowed party girl collection to Cédric Charlier‘s color fest; here are best of Paris Fashion Week Fall 2015 Part I.

Best of MFW Fall 2015

Just like London fashion week, the hectic runway schedule added to my personal blog post line-up kept me from making individual posts about my absolute favorite collections like Marni (above) so they have to share the same page this time with 16 other collections, best of Milan fashion week fall 2015. First of all there was a lot of designer who’s who in Milan this season, coming and going. Alessandro Michele, introducing a Wes Anderson inspired romantic and vintage tone to Gucci, one if you ask me was more daring than the actual sex sells approach that had been adopted by the brand before, was very well received. Kostas Murkudis, who was one of my favorite contemporary up and coming designers, took over Ter et Bantine, a brand I got acquainted with 5 years ago when I was in fashion school in Milan and we were working with them on a project and actually loved their minimal, easy style. This was a collection I was really looking forward to but at the end I felt …

Proenza Schouler F/W 2015

Stop the presses! Proenza is here. And it came with fishnet stockings, made for big big fishes. But that’s not the reason I’m dedicating this post to Proenza Schouler fall 2015 collection; it’s the laminated coat silhouettes, slashed knit dresses/tops reminding me of the guipure lace dresses of fall 2013 which I loved dearly, the genious use of persian lamb (collars, shoulder snoods) and borderline tacky craziness of the whole collection. Admittedly Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough are blowing hot and cold with their style line but as long as they remain this creative, I’m willing to go with the flow they surged.
