GOOD VIBES

Spanish Vogue’s director, Yolanda Sacristan wrote for November issue a letter that made us think. We’ll try to translate it as better as we can.

Once upon a time in a faraway place called fashion planet, where designers, brands, clients, models, photographers and the industry in general, delighted us with much more than their creativity: with high doses of sense of humor. It can be tell that happiness reigned on catwalks, and I mean to the scenario itself where all kind of women such as Pat Cleveland, Inès de la Fressagne or, later, Claudia Schiffer –newly released those nineties full of divas and supermodels- come out smiling as Olympic goddesses and even dancing or bouncing, that for this particular case is the same. I remember the general thrill that was palpable in almost each show; that euphoria that today we would call good vibes, at least let you smiling for the rest of the day and, if you were off guard, it maintained you steady and willing during six months in order to go to the first shop to buy those looks. Fashion was funny, like it was a friend, and it was desired, bought, shown off, enjoyed and mixed in a thousand ways until it fitted into your own style, achieving a result that could go from austere to eccentric in nanoseconds depending on the personality or the stylistic talent of who was wearing it.

I didn’t pretend to be nostalgic, but I write these lines just arrived from those increasingly anodyne and endless fashion weeks and their thousand catwalks, girls with undaunted faces and lines that because of its sanity, caution and tact are unnoticeable. Spring-summer brought us angry women not dressed to go out; hasty women; bony women; shows that are prepared during months and are presented in minutes and people –lots of people- hooked to their cells. And that’s why us, fearlessness, we wanted to stop and go back to the start, to Fashion –uppercase- that is the one that you want, and you buy, and you wear. […] We want the return of the smile”.

Have a nice week!!

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.

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.

Dolce&Gabbana made our dreams come true

Dolce&Gabbana is breaking with the style that used to show in it past seasons. We are aware that the past spring/summer 2015 collection and the following spring/summer 2016 and autumn/winter 2016 collection has been inspired with the pro pious style of its beginnings. We have to say that for us has been a shocking change but we prefer the looks from the “new” brand.  It reached the maxium splendour in the past Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016 season. Inspired by Princess stories; the brand gave to the public a time to disconnect from the world and return to our childhood. Dolce&Gabbana has make true the dreams from our infancy. Our favourite items have been clutches with the iconic clock from Cinderella or with a carriage form and the transparent heels.

 

Clothes has the same style; we are in love with the jackets and dresses inspired by the prince from the childhood storys.

 

Some of the garriage had iconic icons from the storrys; the mouses from Cinderella, the unforgotable mirror with the quote “Who is the most beautiful” or the famouse Apple from Snow White or even the candelabrum that reminds us Beauty and the Best story or clocks from Alice in Wonderland.

 

All the collection has a pich of baroque style. But there has been some garments or shoes that has broken with this style. Shoes with spick and pompoms on the heels, and  dresses with flowers, an Italian style that makes us think of the origins of the Brand.

 

In the following presentation you will be able to see all the pictures from the catwalk.
