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”.
As we said when we birth a year, each first Friday of each month we propose our personal look mixing garments from the catwalks of the season and the actual trends. This month we have bet for a velvet skirt from Moschino with an a flounce shirt from Fendi. Laura has chosen Versace’s shoes to complete the total outfit. It’s a daring proposal for its combination of materials and textures. But we love it!
My look for this month has been different from my September’s Look. Now I’ve been declined to vinyl and glitter materials from Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton. Gucci’s shoes with white tights contributes to the autumn look.
Both materials; vinyl and velvet are going to appear during all this autumn-winter season; and I would also bet for glitter. Colourful looks are going to be the perfect option to enliven the coming cold days.
We hope you like it, writte here your opinon. Happy Friday! 🙂 #TheLookOfTheMonth
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.
Thank you all, without you it wouldn’t be possible. Let us know what do you think about it.
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.
We have been saying that white total look will be the new trend for this summer. In the past Paris Fashion Week, we could saw how brands like Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy or Michael Kors. We emphasized this in our past article about What to wear this spring/summer season.
We have wore our personal total white look with the perfect platform shoes from No-Sé and a white dress from El Corte Inglés. In the Bridal Fashion Week catwalk we saw a model from YolanCris that wore an orange lipstick with the look, and it gave her a special touch that we personally love. We bought one similar colour in Nyx, in particular the Liquid Suede 05, and this was the final look. This season, MaxMara has bet for orange but the brand has applied it as eyeshadow.
