Bring out your feline side

Felines are seen like a symbol of elegance because of its subtle and quite moves; of beauty due to furs; of agility; but felines, especially those which are domestic, are homelike animals.

This season all of these roles are embodied on garments and all kind of accessories that rise to the top the feline spirit making it more fashionable than ever. This trend is coming with power and in a naïve way.

Loewe, Chanel, Dolce&Gabbana, Just Cavalli, Gucci or Paco Rabanne are some of the fashion houses that bet for this tendency on Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 catwalks.

 

We can find felines in all of their extention and all kind of forms: just the panthers pattern, tiger heads, cats, cats pattern, etc.

Let us know what do you think about this trend, whether you would wear it or not.

HAPPY MONDAY!!

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.

Oscars 2016

This early morning has been the Oscars 2016, the 88th edition. The Best Actor and Actress category has been for Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson. Best Director has been for Alejandro González Iñárritu. Best Suporting Actor/Actress has been for Marck Rylance and Alicia Vikander. And the Best film has been Spotlight. It has to be said that this Academy Awards has been a little bit strange, some actors and actresses has decided to not assist flattering that there are not enough black actors; this boycott has been leaded by Will Smith. Our intention is to analysis the attires from the assistants. We will say which have been our favourites, which have been excessive and our general opinion of the all night. After this article we will publish another with the outfits from the afterparty.

Charlize Theron with a Dior red dress with jewellery from Harry Winston, Alicia Vikander with a yellow Louis Vuitton dress, the strange Dorith Mous garment, the Armani Prive wear it by Kate Blanchet and Naomi Watts and Tom Ford’s dress wear it by Margot Robbie has been our favourite outfits.

 

We have also liked some outfits that some of the social media have criticise as dull dresses. We think that sometimes you can wear a dress without any overloaded detail but can be beatiful as well. This dresses are the Chanel’s from Daisy Ridley, the black dress from Marchesa wear it by Isla Fisher. And we cannot omit the amazing Versace wear it by Jennifer Garner.

 

But there has been ones that we haven’t like. Jennifer Lawrence has shocked us with her Dior dress because in the past Oscars showed a magnify good taste for the clothes, and this year all our expectative has been failed. Heidi Klum wore one dress from Marchesa that didn’t join with her skin like the Givenchy’s dress from Rooney Mara. Kerry Washington dressed by Versace has been for us too much; and Lily Cole with a Vivienne Westwood is over the top with the form and the colour. Olivia Wilde has wear a Valentino; it would be better without the chocker that in our opinion limit the dress.And finally the Cris Siriano dress from Maria Menounos made her look shorter.

 

And other outfits that has not been amazing has been Amy Poehler with an Andreu Gin, Sophia Vergara with a Marchesa, Liz Hernández dressed by Michael Costello and Louise Roe with one dress from Cris Siriano.

 

This 88th edition from  the Academy Awards has not been terrific as we though, there has been some oufits that has been for us better than the others but there isin’t the dress of the night. For us this gala has not been one to remember, talking about the garments of course. We want to congratulate to all the winners; they have done a really good job!

Low-cost trendy shoes of this season

We have good news for those who love to be fashionably dressed. There is no need to spend a lot of money if you want to go dressed according to what is shown in catwalks or as your favourite celebrity. This winter a lot of low-cost brands, such as Mango, H&M or Asos had launched shoes inspired on those luxury brands.

As sneakers is concerned we have to remark Dior fusion sneakers, that have all over the shoe flowers made of precious stones. Mango and Uterqüe launched very similar sneakers in an affordable price.

Isabel Marant or Chloé are some of the brands that have bet for ankle boots and Mango has followed them.

Asos has took inspiration from Charlotte Olympia, Louboutin or Stuart Weitzman for some of its flat sandals or ballerinas.

Chloé’s pumps has influenced Asos, but one of the most remarkable and popular pumps of this season have been Chanel escarpins and finally we have found a low cost version in Loéil.

A huge range of sandals has been in fashion. Some of the most popular brands have been Valentino, Aquazurra or Stuart Weitzman.

Remember, there’s no need to spend a lot of money to dress in a fashinably way but sometime you can give yourself a whim.

Chanel takes off

     As we have seen one month ago, in the Paris Fashion Week, the show of Chanel has been really shocking for almost everyone. The brand decided to make it in an airport, to be more accurate, in the Gran Palais from Paris with a decoration inspired in an airport. All the details were deeply though. There was a timetable with all the arrivals, a special place to check-in and in addition there were carts. There was a boarding gate without leaving the gate no 5.  Moreover, the ticket to Fashion Show was like a boarding pass. All had the logo of the brand.

    Some of the outfits were with in oversize cut with a sportswear inspiration. The superposition of different clothes is one of the ideas that Lagerfeld wanted to pass on. Classic and straight cuts in jackets, tweed coats and mix of textures and prints will be the new trend. It’s a break with a minimalist world.

As accessories, the brand has show caps, transparent ankle boots, “ugly shoes” sandals, pins with a plane shape and the famous Coco carrier.
