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.

Gucci Pays Tribute to Sir Elton John & 70’s in Dark-Themed SS 2018 Fashion Show

A gender mix show focused on individual pieces rather on a set of looks, was set off to unravel Gucci’s SS 2018 collection, at Milan Fashion Week, on September 20. The mood was dark with a vampiric touch, seen in the makeup, hair and the runway setup. A rather bizarre music arranged by Rob Lewis and Emre Ramazanoglu, directed by Steve Mackey accompanied the models in a trans runway walk, surely meant to add to the general vibe.

The clothes were very much Gucci, with a lot of the velvet silhouettes being mixed in with sparkly fabrics. There was a 70’s feel in the clothes, with sparkly dark nude bodysuits worn underneath, long dresses with large shoulders and men’s perfectly tailored suits. Crystal-studded jewelry, sunglasses, stunning headpieces and crystal headbands worn under the chin added to the extravaganza. Sir Elton John-inspired pieces, a Sega graphic font inspired bag, and few English high society details added into the collection are highlights of the show. “The collection is a mystery through which I can show the personal experience, aesthetic and emotions of what I live” said by designer Alessandro Michele wraps up beautifully the essence of the SS 2018 collection.

Donatella Versace paid a one of a kind tribute to Gianni Versace, the man and its work, in her SS 2018 collection, presented at Milan Fashion Week, on September 22, in Milan. The phenomenal throwback featured jaw-dropping prints from Giani Versace’s famous 90’s collections. Now legendary Versace printed tights took the lead on the white runway, accompanied by iconic Versace pieces and moments.

There was plenty of throwbacks to look at, as the runway became a time capsule seasoned with groups of three and four models mixed with two or one silhouettes strutting the glamour of 1990-1995 Versace collections. Most iconic collections to this date, such as SS 1995 butterfly-inspired print collection, the SS 1992 Animalier and Tresor de la Mere, the SS 1991 collection with the legendary Marilyn Monroe portrait by Andy Warhol, the richness of yellow and black of the FW 1991 Baroque-inspired collection, have been brought back to life. It was the sight of Gianni Versace works, collectively re-building the past. And there was more.

Donatella Versace did not pass the human factor in her effort to piece together a glamorous past. She invited Gianni’s favorite group of supermodels from the 90’s, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni to close with style the show. The five models appeared from behind a curtain, posing still and facing the excited audience, which started clapping, even when disturbed by their phones, agendas, and cameras. The show ended with Donatella and the group of five walking out of the runway as the final piece of the show, George Michael’s Freedom, was playing in the background.

Tommy Hilfiger’s Tartan & Plaid Inspired Fall/Winter 2017 Collection at LFW

Tommy Hilfiger joined the fun at London Fashion Week, but not the summer or spring where in his mind. The designer revealed its AW 2017 collection, which is a good sight to see among all the SS 2018 collections happening these days. Touched by the grunge feel and presented as urban looks, the collection involved the welcoming sight of tartan and plaid patterns served throughout the show in various shapes and sizes. Long coats, jackets, slip dress, schoolgirl-inspired dresses and skirts, winter long jackets, and pants, were paired with black stockings, beanie hats, and almost everyone on the show had fingerless black with red pattern gloves. Few blurry flower print pieces made it into this collection as well, presented by models dressed in stockings, with leather shorts or long pants, minus the beanies.

Emporio Armani’s SS 2018 Collection at London Fashion Week

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.
