NYFW and MFW review

New York Fashion Week started on September 7th, immediately after the London Fashion Week and then the Milan Fashion Week. The next week will take place the Paris Fashion Week. In all of the catwalks, the brands are launching their Spring-Sumer proposals for 2017.

Oscar de la Renta opted for all-white dresses and safari-inspired suites. Rodarte bets for monochromatic looks basically and mix lots of leather with laces and ruffles. Alexander Wang presented a line that easily could have been called ‘unisex’ where models wore shorts that resembled boxers, shirts that could have been borrowed of their boyfriend’s wardrobe and neon sweaters.

The line that offered Altuzarra played with different patterns; from cherries and lemons to python print. Proenza Shouler has bet for oversized T-shirts and leather jackets tied round waist to become skirts, all in primary colours. Jeremy Scott, faithful to its style, has incorporated geometric shapes to the dresses and as materials is concerned, leather and sequins. Black, white, khaki and denim were the proposals of Carolina Herrera.

Michael Kors launched his new watch alongside a collection inspired on the Sixties; oversized trench coats, floral prints and high heeled platform sandals. NYFW ended with the grand final show of Marc Jacobs, who opted for a line that every 20-somethig in the Nineties would have worn; rainbow-coloured dreadlocks, giant seven-inch platform boots, satin pants, micro suede skirts or silver snakeskin coats.

 

One of the first brands to catwalk on the Milan fashion Week was Gucci. Alessandro Michele chose recharged outfits for the next Spring-Summer season that in some cases reminded us to the Seventies but in other ones they were much more Victorian.  Leather was the innovating proposal for Alberta Ferreti and we saw it combined with purple skirts or in rodeo belts piled up around taffeta and chiffon dresses. Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli bet for hippie-chic outfits for those summer days –and nights- spent in Ibiza or Greece. MaxMara pointed to the jungle with frond-printed jumpsuits and sweaters with exotic wildlife, essentially in monochrome colours.

Fendi bets for girlish outfits that reminded us to Baby Dolls accessorised with pastel-coloured bags and the new bag bug: a furry doll with “string legs and stompy boots”.  The most remarkable about Prada were the fluffy ostrich feathers added to the garments. Jeremy Scott for Moschino played with the idea of paper dolls, a metaphor of the exaggerated consumerism society we are living in and of the industry of the see-now, buy-now. Moreover, the brand launched a capsule collection inspired on capsules and pills. Giamba presented little dresses and skirts all in vaporous fabrics and soft colours.

Donaella Versace thinks “Sportswear is the future of fashion” so she created a collection all about woman’s freedom where we could see nylon anoraks, zip-up sports tops, asymmetric mini dresses and motocross trousers, among other luxurious sportswear. Dolce&Gabbana reminded faithful to Italy and its symbols, making them shine through millennial influencers, but this time they focused on island life, like Capri, Pantelleria and -of course- Sicily.

Dsquared2 closed the Milan Fashion Week, another wonderful week full of new trends for the upcoming season and amazing Street Style.

Joyce bag; season’s best accessory

Loewe presented what it will be the accessory of the season: Joye Bag.

11259170_1158876930799140_1460343822_n

Its rounded shape and metallic shoulder-chain makes it perfect for business women who don’t renounce to a stylish and practical office look.  In the middle, it has a metallic circle that contains the brand’s anagram and with regard to materials, the bag is made of soft calfskin.

Joyce bag is avaliable in four different colours: Black, Burgundy, Tan and Olive Green. Its price is 2.100€.

Loewe also lauched a small version that in stead of a shoulder-chain it has a non-detacahble leather shoulder strap and it costs 1.500€.

Silhouettes’ battle: Oversize vs. Corsets

Fashion has the ability to adapt to every taste. There are two silhouettes that will lead the season, oversize and bustiers.

Oversized silhouette comes along with commodity, effortless and even masculine style. This season, Chanel, Christian Dior, Stella McCartney or Nina Ricci bet for neutral tones.  But MSGM prefers to add big red dots and Prada animal print.

 

But for those who lean towards fitted garments we have good news: corsets are back! As well as bustiers or waist bells. They bring out the sexiness of women and stand out their curves.Saint Laurent, Prada and Haider Ackermann have opted for them.

 

Do you prefer any of this silhouettes over the other? We have to say that any of them are extremes, they are perfectly combinable and Miu Miu has seen it.

The Look of September

Commemorating the first year of our blog, we have decided to open a new category #TheLookOfTheMonth; this consists on mixing different garments seen on the catwalks and creating our own proposes for the following month. We will show you two suggestions; one from Laura and another from me; Mónica. And next to the look we will explain the reason why have we choose those clothes. It has to be said that all the pictures from the garments will be take out from the Vogue magazine.

We will publish this new type of article every first Friday of the Month. We hope you enjoy it!

 

LAURA’S LOOK

The military dress coat comes back this autumn/winter season, this one is from Dolce & Gabanna. Paired with sporty pants from Altuzarra and Gucci platforms sandals contribute to constitute a grunge and rocker style that will be a must this season. Dark lips seen on Christian Dior’s catwalk add the final touch to the look.

MONICA’S LOOK

I bet for a total mustard colour look. Gucci pleated midi skirt has been the must-have of the year. Combined with high heels from Hermes and putted together with socks. Garments with waves are going to be essentials for this winter so I have chosen one from Christian Dior. And the final touch is this awesome hat from Chanel. All the look makes us deeper into the autumn.

Maria Grazia Chiuri; the new DIOR

Raf Simons announced the past october that he wouldn’t continue the following season with the Dior maison. No-one could have imagined. But people interested in the fashion world couldn’t know that it would be more unexpected who would be the successor. Maria Grazia Chiuri, the creative director from Valentino next to Pier Pado Piccidi, would be the first woman to head the maison.

The 8th of July Dior announced the successor from Raf Simons, the first woman in Dior’s history. It’s an important change for the house, that used to be managed by males directors Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and of course, Christian Dior.

Chiuri maybe would give an interesting turn to the known brand, her romantic and feminine touch that has been exposed in the lasts Valentino collections. It would be contrasted with the Raf Simons’ avant-garde genre. Who knows what would happen in the following Dior’s collection; we are eager to see it.

One year; alive and kicking

Today it’s an important day for us; it’s our anniversary. We birth one year since we decided to open the fashion blog. For us it means the accomplishment of one of our goals. As we said when we opened it, we wanted to pass on news and trends related with the fashion world.

Thanks to our blog we have been able to assist to multiple Barcelona Fashion Weeks and The Bridal Week, which were some of our aims.  Our idea for this upcoming year is to, at least, assist to Madrid Fashion Week or Paris Fashion Week and meanwhile continue posting our weekly articles [on Mondays]. We would like to take this opportunity to announce our new category that will be launched this next Monday. It consists on mixing different garments seen on the catwalks by brands and creating our own proposes for the following month, trying to add new trends and our personal touch. This genre of article will be posted the first Friday of each month.

We want to thank to all those people who have followed us and have helped to achieve 12.600 views from 102 countries during this year. It has been important for us the congratulations and nice words from designers like Galia Lahav and Red Point. Thinks like this are our daily motivations.

To celebrate this first year we decided to do something special and unforgettable for us, so we have embroidered the name of the blog on a denim jacket and a shirt.
