Chanel Couture Collection Invites to Playfulness and Good Looking Pink

Arranged to look like you’re having an out of the body experience right in the backyard of a glamorous Italian villa, Chanel took its pinks, the little flowers, the bride, and gorgeous mules down the runway for showcasing its Couture collection for Spring 2019. Each silhouette walked around a decent size pond or pool, depending on the type of imagination you have, and posed right at the middle, with a perfect arranged background to emphasize the amazingness of all the craftsmanship that went into this fine collection. The mules I was talking about are designed to have a strap behind, so ultimately, we are left with a very refined shoe. Very lady-like too. As for the pink and violet, I can’t even breath. The shades that were chosen are heavenly soft and pure looking. All the other details are added only to reinforce the general ‘gentle and playful’ vibe. All the other colors known to be Chanel-approved are having individual moments of triumph, ultimately balancing everything out. It all looks eye-catching and grand, that’s for sure.

Olivier Rousteing Brings Men In Black Down the Runway For Balmain at Paris Fashion Week

Embed from Getty Images

Balmain show had a bunch of badass tracks to go with the flow of 90’s inspired looks from the Men’s collection for 19/20 Fall. Besides the ’90s theme, I’ve seen other influences mixed in, such as nautical elements and dorky, very laboratory looking glasses. The result of all these elements is a”bad boy and “bad” girl look, quite formidable, wearable and looking warm.
Lots of stripes, cool blazers, baggy leather looking pants worn with white sneakers or black shoes. Flat and newsboy caps are added to the majority of the look, worn on the side. It looks playful and almost naive. Carefree even. The jackets and blazers are quite experimental, some with uneven patterns or just plain casual. The “man in black” and the “Matrix” look is there, in the collection, tailored by Olivier Rousteing to be a great representation of the Balmain man and woman.

Paris Fashion Week Two Random Shows I choose to Watch and Liked – Part 2

Balmain dropped a collection to die for, from bags to shoes, to belts, to those mouth-watering colors and fabrics. And then, there was Cara Delavigne. The model turned actress, for sure made more than a few hearts to skip some beats at the sight of none other than herself, walking confidently in the opening of the show. She has been out of sight from the fashion world for quite some time, so this opening was everything.

Back to the collection, the show began with a couple of all-white looks, but then everything took on another dimension thanks to gorgeous colors and effects. Accessories are mirror-like and huge, looking immaculate and very metallic. All these work amazing with iridescent fabrics, all crafted wonderfully. The shapes in this collection reminded a lot of Grace Jones and her 80’s looks, with wide shoulders and the game of bright colors and futuristic cuts. Streetwalker denim looks, high waisted belted pants, padded shoulders, all are part of the Balmain SS 2019 collection. The architectural pieces are absolutely amazing, so are the icicle looks, which btw, represent so much from the show.

Front row: Irene Kim, Zara Larsson, Alessandra Ambrosio, Olivia Palermo, Matt Pokora, Camila Coehlo and more.

Paris Fashion Week Two Random Shows I choose to Watch and Liked – Part 1

We are less than a week before the ending of Paris Fashion Week, and there’s already so much to digest from what has happened on the runaways. To make things easier, I’ve chosen two random shows, which already happened (duh!) and analyzed everything under a microscope.

Staring off with quite a controversial brand, Off-White. Loved the abundance of immaculate white silhouettes placed at the beginning of the show. Gentle, soft, here and there slightly transparent, teasing your eyes and your senses fabrics poured on the runway, leaving a trace of romanticism mixed with a whole lot of modern and minimalistic approach. Then the bright lime, soft baby blue, grey and yellow combinations, and snake lime prints erased all traces of all of that white, yet the vibe remained almost, kind of, the same. I love how the waist of the woman is accentuated, so are the legs with short skirts and knee pants. Several sportswear silhouettes changed the pace of the collection, coming one at a time, right after phases of heels and skirts.

Front Row: Cara Delavigne, Nathalia Vodianova, Alessandra Ambrosio, Neymar Jr. and more.

The Good Looks Of Chanel’s Front Row at Paris Fashion Week SS 2018

Chanel front row is what I live for, all thanks to a well-selected group of faces, some of whom I’m a fan of. As a plus, there’s always a new name or several new faces that I’m seeing and that keeps things interesting. Singer Victor Solf and actress Angela Yuen are two newbies I had to search on Google. As for the ones I know, I’m glad G-Dragon is back for Chanel front row, he was missing for a second or two. Anna Mouglalis, Marie Ange Casta, Irene Kim and Park Shin-hye are well known for their faithfulness towards Chanel. New face but known, very known in fact, is Cindy Crawford, proudly and good looking too, posing amongst the rest for Chanel front row.

Nina Ricci at Paris Fashion Week F/W 2017

I grew up watching a lot of the 70’s movies and looking at Nina Ricci’s show in Paris for Fashion Week F/W 2017 I feel nostalgic. Not because of the clothes, but because of my childhood. However, back to Nina Ricci’s F/W collection, I loved how the designer updated a whole bunch of trends from the 70’s to a more refined level.

The colors are soft pastel, and then we have black with white and navy. The details are everywhere and blend with each look like a glove. Speaking of gloves, they are one of my favorites of the collection. Some are lacy and some are made of leather, the latter being used in monochrome looks and with matching high boots.

I have a few other favorites. The yellow star bag is the perfect item to brighten the mood in the cold days. Next, I loved the fringed dress with black high boots. It looked powerful and dangerous. Last but definitely not the least, an item to have is the long dress with cut-out front.

Other pieces worth checking out from Nina Ricci’s F/W 2017 collection are high-waisted flared pants, the fur bags and monochrome gray looks.

VALENTINO – “Colors, numbers, free shapes and vibrations”. Valentino offers playful motifs for Fall in bright fun colors.

The red sky-high boots from FENDI‘s Autumn 2017 collection are what life is all about. Joke aside, these shoes work with I would say any material and look great for short and long dresses.

PRADA– I adored the pink slip dress with beaded fringe, feathers and feather hem. Simply hot!

VERSACE – the sheer material used to create length or as a detail makes clothes look seductive.

Chanel Couture SS 2017 is the Perfect Collection for All Metallic Glam Lovers

Karl Lagerfeld showed, once again what beauty is at its highest, in the Chanel Couture SS 2017 show at Paris Fashion Week. The designer had in mind a metallic look for this collection, theme which dominated the show, including the interior design with mirror glossy floor and centered round sort of mirror.

Models presented the collection in silver pumps and over knee suede embellished boots. Belts from the show are shiny and placed bellow the breasts, this way the lower body looks long, despite all the layers and buffed shapes of the clothes.

Mettalic looking fabrics, details, embroidery and such are present throughout the collection, looking glam yet sort of futuristic. Gorgeous crafted lacy shoulder shawls are one of my favourite items, looking sophisticated and modern. Smashed top hats created a new type of movement for lovers of interesting ideas.

Elie Saab’s Black Couture Gowns At Paris Fashion Week

Elie Saab had his Haute Couture FW 2016/2017 show at Paris Fashion Week on July 6 and oh, what a gorgeous collection! With such a show, it is hard to pick favourites, however three black couture gowns got my attention.

Two piece: a pointy shoulder blazer with belt on the waist, with flower details and unequal folded bottom sides on top of a black pencil skirt with front slit and few folds below the waist.

Another gorgeous black gown, combining the modern touch of see through fabrics and the glam of fur coats.

Third look is a beautiful grey&black one shoulder cape gown, with pencil skirt – front slit and deep V neck chocker top. Skirt has two important details, the branch accessory and black diagonal thick stripe from left hip to right leg, a good touch to the aesthetic of the skirt and whole look.
