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.

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.

Maison Valentino

Maison Valentino was established in 1960 in Rome. Valentino Garavani was de fashion designer that founded the brand with his business partner Giancarlo Giammetti. Everything started with the age of 17, he decided to move to Paris to follow his hobby in the École des Beaux-Arts.

His first collection was on 1961 and he presented 120 models. But one of his famous collections is the White Collection launched in 1968; after, Jackie Kenedy bought one of this white dresses for her wedding dress.

 Important icons from the brand are; it initial V that was in all prêt-à-porter collections since 1968.  Zebra, giraffe and leopard prints are another symbol from this house. And of course we cannot omit the fantastic colour that he felt in love in a trip through Spain; red. As he said Red possibilities are infinitive so it’s definitely the colour that defines him. In general, we can define his designs as unique and special. The main characteristics of the brand are emphasizing the femininity body, luxury fabrics, the quality and the finished touches, but in general; conservative is the perfect word to describe it.  Bows, flounces and organza are others typical characteristics.

In 1998 the founder sold the brand but he continued being the creative director. But in 2008 he decided to retire; leaving a good impression on the fashion world with his last catwalk. Nowadays his bran is in 90 countries. The current Creative Directors since October 2008 are Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli.

FASHION KILLS: the shocking logo from Moschino

untitledThe last catwalk from Moschino in the Milan Fashion Week has been surprising. This time Jeremy Scott has appeared with a shocking logo “Fashion Kills” in the new phone cases that were given in the fashion show. Few minutes before the catwalk; on Moschino’s Instagram a picture was posted with the hashtag #itslit. The designer has defined his new collection like “The Apocalypse WOW”.

All the catwalk consisted of night dresses with cigars and mouths. Firstly, dresses were ready to burn from a skirt with matches; after that dresses had begun to appear burned.

There have been others with a chandelier imitating a crinoline. Bags with a pack of cigarettes form or dresses imitating frame paintings and clothes with smoke that seemed to be burning affirms the quote of the designer “Fashion Kills”.

After watching this catwalk we are wondering if Jeremy Scott loves or hate his job and the world around the industry. He is always trying to send a message to the public but it’s not enough clear as we said in our past article about the history of the brand; in the past Fall/Winter he exhibits dresses with car signs and after that he criticized our consumerist society. But now he has immersed himself with his own industry; the one he loves but yet seems to hate; definitely; Fashion.

The pompom’s beginning

During the past 2015 we saw that most of the bloggers used to wear on its bags or keys a special furry plush toy. Chiara Ferragni, Anna Dello Russo or even the same Karl Lagerfeld wears it. This tendency has arrived to our reality. The evidence is that we can see it on the street; almost each mother and teenager that seems to likes fashion wear it.

The origin of this key-ring is from the known brand called FENDI with it Karlito. All started in the closing of the Autumn/Winter 2014 exhibition; Cara Delavigne was holding what would be a must for almost each woman; an accessory for our bags. This accessory that value 1.600$ was a mini Karl Lagerfeld; the current director from Chanel and at then they were 600 queuing people.

Nowadays; in the new collection we can see it on t-shirts 1.240€, jeans 875€, shoes 1.200€ or in phone cases! And of course it continues the bag’s accessory with two models 820€ and 960€.

We will add some pictures with our imitation of Fendi’s accessory; we have it in pink for spring and camel for Winter.

Each garment with all it materials has been made in Spain. And the medium price is around 125€, so it’s not expensive keeping in mind that all the jackets has been made in our country.  The brand has been announcing the new collaboration through social medias, in particularly, Instagram. Teresa has pose with almost each jacket, and she has made one made to measure, at the back of the jacket we can see her name; Teresa.

For us, the jackets that were out of the stock few hours after putting it on sale, are the best. These ones are the red ones, the white jacket with fur on it pockets and the camel one with fur in the lateral of the jacket.

 

Moschino SS’16

Jeremy Scott took Moschino to another level when he became the creative director of the brand in 2013. His fashion is known by its references to the pop culture, videogames or the daily life. But if something is sure is that leaves nobody indifferent.

The Spring/Summer 2016 collection remains us of constructions workers or materials they use, such as reflective jackets, “caution” signs or traffic cones. Moreover, the collection makes references to car wash establishments or allusions to consumerism.

In some of Moschino garments appear Powerpuff Girls, elements of Super Mario Bros or Bear Credit Card, which instantly reminded us of American Express.

The English designer always surprises us and we’re always wondering what’s next. Jeremy Scott brings fashion to another level, where daily objects become fashion. Although some of the garments can be funny or original, others can be misunderstand, such as the Fresh couture line.

Street style in the New York fashion week

The New York fashion week started the past 10 of February and is going to finish the following 18 of this month. Nowadays we are seeing the catwalks from different brands and we will post a new article talking about them. But this post is different; here we will analyse what are wearing the bloggers, designers and different people who are attending the fashion week; all of them have in common the passion for fashion. We were unable to attend but we would have loved it, to remedy we are connected all the day with what is happening there.

We have realised that most of the bloggers that go to a catwalk, the clothes that they are wearing are from the same house of the fashion show. Some example is Chiara Ferragni or Kristina Bazan; if the fashion show is from Ralph Lauren; they will wear clothes from this house. Moreover, they use the opportunity to show their Brand, it is the case of Chiara Ferragni and her shoes.

 

In common, all the people that has assist to the fashion shows have wear clothes with the common characteristics from this Autumn/Winter that we said in our past article. Extra-long coats or XXL Coats, Jackets with sailor inspiration or even Furry Coats and Maxi Waiscoats.

 

We have seen also that the fashion week has been useful to start with the colour that will be the must in this Spring-Summer; the pale pink. So we can see a mixt between the trendy style from this Autumn-Winter and what would be trendy the following Spring-Summer season.

 

Accessories have been the must these days; new bags have taken an opportunity to be exposed on the New York streets. We have seen the Puzzle bag from Loewe, the new ones from Moschino, or even one bag that is getting famous that has two eyes from PlayNoMore Brand, it costs 225€ and the second model 268€.

 

 

We have seen all this year that it-girls used to wear on her bags a pompon putting up. That all that started with Fendi and it Karlito. In this days we have seen a new alternative; the whole bag is a Karlito.

 

And we cannot omit the different bags that has shocked us in the good sense of the word. One with a pineapple form, another with a candy, other with tweed material, one with Comococos drawn and there is even one with a bear.

 

Finally, it has to be said that our favourite “it-girl” is Kristina Bazan, we are in love with all of her outfits. We will add a presentation with some of the outfits that people are wearing in this NY FashionWeek.
