Emporio Armani’s collection at London Fashion Week had a little Barbie doll vibe to it, thanks to translucent and iridescent fabrics of pastel aquatic colors modeled into stylish tailored pants, schoolgirl-inspired and long dresses with soft ruffled bottoms, various tops, and summer casual and blazer jackets. Small geometric figures prints and applique made their way into the collection, looking jolly, almost cute, especially since the designer paired them with before mentioned pastel aquatic colored pieces. A nice change of seen was made by modern hieroglyph styled prints. The clothes looked marvelous and surprisingly still in tune with what happened before on the runway. The glimpse of color red was there, yet managed to have no say in the final result. Talking of which, could not have been better placed in time.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Dior Homme had a good show, very well put together, from the music to the mini roller coaster setting, accessorised with Christmas lights. Moving on to the collection, clothes resembled the late 90’s and beginning of 2000 style/fashion, dark and grunge to which modern elements like graphic details and use of colours were added.
Mix of red, white and black appeared often on various pieces, like long hooded jacket, bomber jacket, baggy pants and often in design as stripes to belts, sleeves, neckline, socks, shoes, shoulders or strings.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
DRIES VAN NOTEN
Belgian designer Dries Van Noten had a fabulous show for his SS menswear 2017 collection. Models took the runway with force on a extended version of UNKLE’s track -“Burn My Shadow”, very much in tune with the whole show.
Clothes were loose, looked comfortable and very Dries Van Noten. I love the all over print pieces, especially the hooded coats. The show had several looks with large sweaters which had an unfinished and raw look, which I liked. It fits together with the prints and loosens of the clothes. Other pieces: wide leg pants, loose baggy shorts and printed bomber jackets.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
BORIS BIDJAN SABERI
Boris Bidjan Saberi menswear collection is another successful show for SS 2017. I like the choice of colours and the monotone rhythm. Back to the colours, let’s just say WOW! Shades of yellow and orange, from the lightest to darkest, mixed together or with grey or black, looked unbelievable on modern edgy looking pieces, like sleeveless coats, baggy shorts, boots, gloves and rucksacks.
The show had several looks with black, grey and white, keeping the already established clean rhythm of the collection.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
At Milan Menswear Fashion Week SS 2017 we got to see the Diesel Black Gold collection for the next summer. Very 2000 looking baggy pants (yumm!) next to matching tight jackets in airy colours & monotone outfits together with tight pants, stripes, tight high waist jackets & T-shirts – all great looking pieces for the next summer.
Neil Barrett had a pleasant show with wearable pieces influenced by the 70’s and 80’s, mixed together, looking just ready for day to day life. Colors are strong but earthy with brown dominating the entire show. The best of the collection are the trousers with a graphic twist, excellent for matching with different cuts and fabrics.

Note to every bride to be: the back of your wedding dress is just as important as its front.
Has anyone seen Bella Swan’s wedding to Edward Cullen in Breaking Dawn part 1? I have – twice. There’s this scene where she’s walking down the aisle and the camera moves behind to show her back as she does her thing and Bang! As a result the back of her dress went viral (in real life) and created a trend in the bridal world. However, it’s been a while since then, therefore we can move on to the SS 2016 bridal collections and the back of your future wedding dress.
A delicate back with long veil is what The Bride needs. This is the dress that’s delicate and feminine, decent but modern and very bridal, something what a sweet woman would appreciate. There’s no way you can go wrong with such a dress – a look that’s able to please your guests, family, groom and most importantly – yourself.
INES DI SANTO
Who doesn’t like ball gowns? This Ines Di Santo dress has the classic ball gown shape with a nice tasteful embroidered corset. The skirt has a motif, brought by few parallel lines, going in circle around the skirt, once just bellow the corset and then at the “ankles” of the dress, in between light embroidery. The detail of the motif gives to it a nice folk touch that makes everything look special and unique.
