Givenchy Menswear Collection for Fall 2017 Has Totem Print, Glass Earings and Wooden Toggles

For this coming Fall/Winter season, Givenchy has made streetwear fashion look creative but wearable, giving us trendy layers, art related prints and few other more accents. The collection combines the man and the boy, with the looks of old-schooled duffle coats next to overalls and stripes.

You’ll see the last mentioned in different sizes and combinations, in orange, red or blue. Then the collection moves on to checker prints which appear mostly on shirts and worn under V-neck pieces.

Totem prints designed with kabuki accents were captured in a zoom-in manner and presented as knitwears, sweatshirts and tank tops.

The old and new mixture seems to be the structure of this collection, and we get to see it even in the smallest details, like the colorful wooden toggles versus glass earrings. The latter have a magnifying quality to the material, which completes the Givenchy Fall/Winter 2017 collection on an interesting note.

Valentino’s Lady in Red – Lace And Other Fabrics

As all-red outfits, red pieces and red lace are having a moment, Valentino is one of the designers to watch thanks to its gorgeous past collections and most recent looks from its shows – dedicated to its love for Red.

Talking of that, actress Park Shin Hye promoted her recent movie “Hyung (Brother)” wearing Valentino Resort 2017 ensemble – see through red lace midi skirt next to patterned striped mens shirt. I love this style and the idea of wearing such a delicate and revealing skirt on top of something that stands as a top.

The see through trend has been around for a while now, and although it may seem we’ve seen it all, there you have it  – Valentino comes and gives us another way of wearing this style – and it looks wearable and lovely.

Moving on, all red oufits are quite a show, don’t you think? Especially with the right dress, the right shoes and so on. Hailee Steinfeld looked amazing in a slighty see through Valentino Resort 2017 red dress while attending its 2017 SS show in Paris.

TBT: a few years back, in 2013, Valentino had an elegant and glamorous all-red collection for Shanghai, with red lace, fur, velvet and shiny leather.

Thanks To A.Av’s 2016 F/W Collection, We Now Know What’s The Next Big Trend On Layers And Coats

We all know how obsessed koreans are about their coats, and of course they can come up with ideas which ultimately become our favourite next trends. The thing is, before watching A.Av’s collection for F/W 2016, was seriously thinking about ways of building layers, since I love doing it, however, in my head there was an image going round and round: something smaller on top of coats.

Luckily for me, A.A.v’s designer, Kwangho Lee, pushed the layer trend to a next level in his 2016 Fall/Winter collection, layering jackets on trench coats and even on coats. Now, you could say nay, however, depending on the fabrics which are used, this new way of wearing layers of clothes looks better than expected. I personally think it as a natural progress of how we wear clothes on top of eachother, obviously talking about bigger pieces.

First look from A.Av’s collection that got my attention has a lovely ultra light beige jacket on top of what looks like to be a coat – simple as that. The fabrics and colours blend well, so as the movement of shapes. As you can see, the lengths are different, although the jacket has a build in shawl that blends in with the lenght of what’s under.

Second look is a grey jacket/cardigan sweater on top of a beige trench coat. These two colours blend nicely together, creating “wearable” for everybody and are both colours very much in trend. The coat is cool and a bit harsh, with its big side pockets and stiff collar, while the jacket brings warmth, looking like something you would definately like to wear in a cold day. There is also a bit of black in there, for a bit of a “detail vibe” and giving a hand to the grey and beige mix. Are these two pieces working together? – Yes, absolutely! It is a nice, wearable look, very modern and yes daring BUT mighty “handsome”.
