HAUTE COUTURE AW 2016/2017: DIOR

Hello my lovelies! I really hope you have been enjoying my posts about haute couture fashion week. You have to know that this is the moment of the year for which I as a haute couture blogger can´t wait to see, so I really have the urge to write and analiyse what was seen on the runways.

In today´s post I will write my impressions about Dior show. Ok, I have to admit, today´s Dior in visual sense is very different from John Galliano´ days and that is a little, I have to be honest, disappointing. But, every house of couture has it´s own evolution and I have to admit the stage where Dior is today is not maybe on couture Olympus but it is standing proudly channelling the most elegant couture.

This was the case with this collection. It was very simple with strong vertical silhouette, loosed a little in the waist and in the sleeves which were puffed. The collection was really monochromatic not only in coloration but in cuts too. Long dresses were boosted gently with pleats, chiffon ruffles, embroidered ornaments, or they were just falling very free in airy and wide form.

This minimalistic aesthetic was accentuated even more with flatted opened sandals which were tied with satin ribbons. This gave the whole ensembles very casual feed back. I think on this point the self confidence of designers in Dior to display on couture show flats was really worth of admiration. But don´t worry the couture and elegant peak was defenitelly reached.

The hair was sleek, taken from the face away. Very simple, which was only following that loosed up vibe of the whole collection. The make up was different, very dramatic with very ultra bold eyeliner game on the upper lid or only on down lid, or reminiscencing the ancient Egypt, on the both up and down. This gave the collection very arhaicly modern touch.

This collection was not maybe a typical haute couture collection. It was really down to earth, with simplicity choosen to be the only imperative. But this simplicity is in general very hard to accomplish, but Dior did an amazing job. It offered new aesthetic, ok maybe a little ascetic but in this couture frame we could see the elegance and craftmenship to the fullest. And that is what makes this colection a total hit!

What do you think about this collection? Do you like latest design vibes coming from Dior?

Thank you for the attention!

THE MODERN FASHION SUFFRAGETTES BY DIOR

With the designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri as the leading creative mind of the Christian Dior house of fashion, seems like Dior has crossed the line of the simply fashionable and couture rich fashion towards the fashion name that stands for the woman that is strong and confident almost in the suffragette kind of way. The consciousness of the being a woman has something that Chiuri finds much inspiring and that new side of Dior we honestly love.

The t-shirts display with the printed mojo "We All Should Be Feminists" has been the brave pretentious uvertire into this Pre-Fall 2018 collection for which one word or term could be used when we see the ensembles, and that is androgynous. The Dior which we know like the ultra-feminine and chic fashion name has got the modern and sleek upgrade by this collection which has served us some serious but so refined masculine tones brought and developed in the feminine attire.

The perfectly cut suits, the sleek and polished silhouette, the tweed…

REFINED STYLE ACCENTS BY ROKSANDA

The fashion and style sense of Roksanda Ilinicic has that something extravagant but in very casual and approachable way. Her fashion is the favorite choice for the women who like to stand out but still prefer the classic accents and chic interludes in the fashion sense! The experimental touches are hidden in the form which is often purely voluminous, in the brave but subtle color blocking, in the refined but original cuts in the form of delicate details.

The same ambiance in the style sense could be felt in the latest Pre-Fall collection 2018 by Roksanda Ilinic. The London-ish flare brought in the chic and loosed up mannerism dealing with the style originality in the easiest and light way. These could be the main characteristics and design related positions when we talk about this collection. It has offered everything Roksanda style is. The high quality of the deep and concrete design, the playful twists which were there simply for fun and for the fashion originality.

The most amazing…

NEW YEAR´S EVE STYLE IDEAS #3: GO GLITZ OR GO HOME!

In the last post for the 2017 and the last post from this New Year´s Eve style outfit ideas, we go for all or nothing! If there is one time in the year that we can never have enough glitter and glitz, then that is probably the New Year´s Eve celebration. The full glam on the outfit, on the face, the glamorous hair! Loose your inner glamorous diva and enjoy the party!

OUTFIT: 

Glitter, glitter and more glitter! This could be the sum up of the most typical but so lovely and breathtaking style idea for the New Year´s Eve. Because you want to dance all night long the length of the dress is the key here! Of course, you can skip the dress and go for the more refined item like the blouse, top, trousers or tuxedo but the texture must be in glitter embellishments featured. If you choose a dress make sure that it is a mini dress. You are more comfortable to dance and it looks really girlie and quirky too! Avoid the long gown alike dresses because it will be much harder for you to dance and you w…

HIDDEN JAPANESE PARADISE BY ERDEM

One of the fashion houses that has the huge sense of the new romanticism which is brought into the new level of the modern and contemporary style is Erdem. With that on the mind, Erdem nourishes aesthetic which is very recognizable and can easily be related too. That is the strength of this fashion house which has put the refined sensibility at the highest point and that way has transferred that style into their own trademark design touch.

In the latest Pre-Fall 2018 Collection, the romantic mode is on the highest level but this time with the little twist. The secret this time is in the turning to the more exotic style in the form of the Japanese culture. As everything in Erdem aesthetic point of view, the Japanese twist was in the details and refined design. The more sleek and sharp cuts which were on the side at the Japanese side of the design, the kimono alike dress with the wide waistlines in the modern geisha mannerism, the micro-fine prints alluring at the architecturally struct…

MODERN PRINTS EDITION BY VERSUS VERSACE

The baby label of the high and luxurious fashion label Versace, Versus has been made for the purpose of the new and modern concept design spheres oriented towards the mostly younger and urban fashion fans and consumers. That idea has brought the clear and specific concept which has been far more experimental, witty, edgy and urban. Having that on the mind the latest Pre-Fall 2018 Collection was bursting out with the modern vision of a daily wear which can be seen in the social media.

The strong 90-is vibes with the vibrant prints, the brave cuts solutions, the mixture of the athleisure and casual with the high and seductive glam. All of that was incorporated in this collection. The common highlight of the almost every outfit is the cap with the printed Versus logo. That seemed to be the starting point of the whole visual design story which was upgraded then into the more feminine and elegant outfits which were meant to be more on the nightwear side of garments.

But that fact of the ev…

FASHION BACKSTAGE-ING BY NINA RICCI

The Pre-Fall collections which are usually released and presented just a few weeks before the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris (which starts this year on the January, 21). That is why the majority of the fashion houses and labels bring them in the form of the editorials. These editorials are really a curation worthy. Some of them have a deep and relevant story in the background making the harmonic collision with the clothes and ensembles. And some of them have more simple and minimalistic story to tell, focusing on the fashion letting the fashion speaks for itself.

The latest Pre-Fall 2018 Collection by Nina Ricci has been imagined just like the first above mentioned concept. With the story-telling display of the editorial which bares "behind-the-scene or backstage" vibe, this collection has shown the perfect connection between the fashion and the fashion photography or at least the capacity of the fashion to tell a story. With the "Rock Star Roh-bau" concept of…
