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.

Baret Bag, the new favourite

Carolina Herrera has released recently the new favourite bag of celebrities or influencer such as Olivia Palermo, Nicole Warne or Giovanna Battaglia.

The bag itself was presented in three sizes, the normal size, the petite one an the grande. Moreover, one of the two handles is interchangeable.

It’s a bag thought for a daily use and for all kind of situations, inspired by the personality of Jeanne Baret.  In our opinion, is a very versatile bag that fits to every woman.

 

Adilette slides

Adidas launched Adilette in 1963 and were the first pair of sandals made by the sport’s brand. Nowadays are its best-seller and Adidas have reinvented them in different colours like red, orange, green, yellow, pink or silver, but the typical ones are navy blue or black with white stripes; they cost 34,95€.

Recently we have spotted them in different celebrities or ‘it-girls’ such as Gigi Hadid or Chiara Ferragni.

The Adilettes slides combined with cropped jeans or a sweater could be included in the sport luxury style. That’s one of the reasons why they become so popular again, because you can wear them in a comfortable look –a sport look- and give that vintage touch.

Who said heels are boring?

Heels game has arrived to a brand new level thanks Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu or Gucci, among others. Decorated heels add the final touch to every look; they manage to transform the simplest look into a sophisticated one.

Gucci bets for a zebra tail, pearls, studs and its symbolic snake made by tiny crystals.

 

Fur and Swarovski crystals are Miu Miu’s suggestions.

But Dolce&Gabbana combines studs with crystals or flowers, or with fur and even it has created heels that are inspired by chandeliers or wrought-iron garden gates.

 

Don’t be afraid to complete your outfit with flamboyant heels. Give that lady dress a rocker touch with studs heels, or complete your vintage cropped jeans with a pair of Gucci mules decorated with pearls. Fashion is about playing, mixing.

QUIERO SER; el nuevo programa de ‘moda’

Quiero ser es un programa que se estrenó ayer en Telecinco a las 22:00h. Fue presentado por Sara Carbonero y los tres coach eran Madame de Rosa, Dulceida y Cristo Bañez. Se presentaban como el mayor talent de moda y hemos considerado oportuno expresar nuestra opinión ya que trata sobre una industria que nos apasiona.

programa-quiero-ser-Sara_Carbonero-Telecinco_MDSVID20160719_0132_17.jpg

Como tantos espectadores, nosotras esperábamos ver un programa donde la moda fuera el eje central. Pensábamos que se hablaría de las nuevas tendencias, de cómo poder combinar distintos estilos, aprender la historia de esta industria, ver el estilo de cada Coach y  cómo mejoran los participantes sin dejar perder su estilo tan singular. Sin embargo, el resultado no fue nada de lo esperado. Lo que vimos fue participantes criticándose la mayor parte del tiempo, donde, en vez de frenarlo, la dirección del programa parecía que lo incentivase, premiando la competición en vez del aprendizaje; escasos consejos de moda,… y todo ello sin mucha intervención de los coach.

En la presentación de cada participante escogido hablaban muy poco de moda, más bien remarcaron que querían ganar el programa afirmando tener un gran estilo propio y nos llamó la atención su empeño en utilizar la palabra it-girl. ¿Entonces en qué quedamos? ¿Es un programa de moda o un concurso para llegar a ser una it-girl? Quizás será mejor que empezamos a diferenciar el mundo de la moda con el de las it-girls. Una it-girl, según nuestra manera de entender las cosas, es esa persona a la que mucha gente sigue y se convierte en referente. Si esta persona decidiera vestirse de amarillo todo el día, sus seguidores la seguirían utilizando prendas de ese color; eso sí, manteniendo su propio etilo. Para nosotras una it-girl expone diariamente su vida en las redes sociales, sus viajes, lo que come, su ejercicio, con quien queda y también cómo viste. De aquí viene la confusión con el mundo de la moda. Para nosotras una it-girl puede crear tendencias, pero no está relacionada directamente con esta industria. Aunque a partir de trabajar en el mundo de la moda también te puedes convertir en una it-girl; un ejemplo sería la italiana Chiara Ferragni. Nos preguntamos si el nuevo programa de Telecinco consiste en potenciar la industria de la moda o en cómo llegar a ser una it-girl.

En lo que se refiere a los coach, el programa no deja que estos puedan lucir correctamente todo su conocimiento, limita bastante su acción y la presentadora, Sara Carbonero, casi ni se la ve. El programa podría haber aprovechado muchísimo más el conocimiento de cada uno de los coach dejándoles más tiempo para expresar cómo ven ellos este mundo al que se dedican. Nosotras pensamos que el personal está totalmente cualificado, pero no se les da el protagonismo necesario; más bien este protagonismo parece estar enfocado hacia los concursantes y su constante rivalidad.

Somos de las que piensan que esta industria podría tener un gran potencial en España, llegando a niveles como Francia (París) o Estados Unidos (Nueva York); pero hay que trabajarlo. Y día a día muchas son las personas que lo hacen. Pero aún falta mucho más. Pensábamos que este programa sería un paso más; pero no ha sido así; o al menos según nuestra manera de ver las cosas. De todas maneras, es el primer programa y lo seguiremos viendo para ver cómo evoluciona. Y quizás mejora. Quién sabe, no sentenciemos el programa por su primer episodio.

Lace up tops

As we have concern, almost each shop has one top, t-shirt or dress with cords in it necklines, known as lace up tops. It-girls as Chiara Ferragni or Kim Kardashan has shown to us how do they wear it. We have to admit that it’s not as easy as it seems to wear it in a cool way. In our opinion, this garment is a little bit provocative so it’s important to wear it with others garment that don’t stand out and let the neckline show off.

 

Balmain, Ralph Lauren and House of Holand has bet for this different clothes and has been exposed in their Spring/Summer collections from the past Fashion Weeks.

Zara, H&M, Mango and Asos have their personal clothes; we have bought one black top.

 

What do you think of this new garment? Do you think it’s too much provocative or it can be wear it in a casual look?

 

Fendi Haute Couture 2016

It has been two weeks full of shows from the Maisons showing their new Haute Couture Collections. Brands as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Miu Miu, and much more have shown in Paris their works. As other times, “it-girls” and people who work on this industry have taken the chance to wear the perfect outfit. As an example, we can look the moods from the “it-girls” Chiara Ferragni, Nicole Warne, Olivia Palermo or even Kate Hudson.

But we would like to emphasise Fendi’s show. Even though it was not a common Haute Couture because they celebrated 90 years founded in Rome and they wanted to expose what would be their new collection in the Fontana di Trevi from Rome. Awesome. There is no better way to join two worlds: art and fashion. Both aim to achieve maximum beauty; and Karl Lagerfeld has achieved displaying the fashion show in such excellence square.

Kendal Jenner opened the show; models walked in a transparent platform that was on the water; lights were perfectly located to emphasise the garments. It has to be said that the square was closed to the public just for the show. The collection was in accordance with the location; blue was the main colour in almost each color-scheme. Embroidery, mix textures and delicate materials were used in this haute couture for the Maison. It has brought us to our childhood; princesses and fairies became true for half an hour. We wonder what would do Fendi for its 100th anniversary. Will be very difficult for them to overcome it.

080 Barcelona Fashion Week

First of all, we would like to apologise for not being posting any article since almost a month. As we said we are students and this June has been  stressful with lot of exams and works to deliver. Now, that we have pass everything we are really happy because we have lot of new ideas for the blog, so keep in touch because this July will be the essential month. As a come early, one of our projects is to translate all our blog into Spanish so you will be able to read it in both languages: English and Spanish.

Finished our exams we were able to assist to the Fashion Week from Barcelona. Some brands invited us to the event so we were excited to assist. The 080 Barcelona Fashion Week started the past Monday, the 27th of June; but we ended our exams the 28th so our first day of the Fashion Week was the 29th. The 080 was from the 27th of June to the 1th of July. It was located in the Institut Nacional d’Educació Física a Catalunya called INEFC in Montjuic. For us, it was a good place for the dimensions and the awesome views but the location was a little bit too far from the public transports, it has to be said that the 080 arranged some buses on Plaça Espanya that carried us to the Inefc building, but despite this it was too far from the public.

 

The 080 Fashion Week consisted on different exhibitions from Spanish brands in the basketball court of the building and you were able to rest some time in some tables in the football pitch with one Dj and different food trucks to eat something.

The different shows from the brands were good but there where specially four exhibitions that we want to remark. First one was Bcn Brand; it was really informal and it was different from all the catwalks that we used to see. The models didn’t were as serious as always and everything was more spontaneous. The second and third one were Punto Blanco and Lola Casademunt. The last one was Red Point; the brand invited us to the Front Row and we were able to see the outfits closer than ever. All the swimsuits were awesome and each look were spectacular. Definitely our swimsuit from this summer will be one of that brand.

 

 

Now, as all the 080 Fashion Weeks that we have been, we will post our outfits, what we wore and how we wore it.

FIRST DAY 29th of June

 

SECOND DAY 30th of June

 

LAST DAY 1th of July

We hope that you like our article talking about our experience and now as we used to do, we will continue posting fashion articles each Monday and Thursday. We hope you like it; and if you do it you can comment and follow us on our Instagram to know all our news. Have a good Week!

ROLLED UP JEANS

Rolled up jeans, at first it seems normal; isn’t it? We can look it in almost each girl outfit and apparently has anything special. But there is something; we have seen it wearing it by Krisitina Bazan and others it-girls. Do you notice it?

The known rolled up jeans is wider than it uses to be. We have noticed that Alexander McQueen bet for this look in it past Paris Fashion Week 2016. And Zara has items with this characteristics.

 

 

We are wondering how much people is going to follow the crowd. We have been wearing it in a hole day; what do you think? Do you like it or not? We will see if more “it-girls” opt for this different way to wear Denim; the season must have.
