"FEMINIST MANIFESTO" BY VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

I was part of another collaboration with http://www.revuu.it./ It is great fashion and lifestyle app that you can download and enjoy amazing editorials made by bloggers and curators. The theme of last editorial of mine was Alexander McQueen and this current one is about Vivienne Westwood. You know how she is avant garde not just in fashion but in common social sense, so I have named it "Feminist Manifesto", so you can go to revuu.it and check it out. It celebrates the power of woman, her strenghts and believes, all captioned in amazing fashion photos. So I will dedicate this post to the true "rebelesse femme" of couture, Vivienne Westwood!

If anyone is couture-ish, if anyone makes dramatic and know how to make couture drama vibes than that is Viv. Her fashion work is reflection of her believes about society in general so she was and still is a grandiose rebel. She was a pioneer of subculture movement, called punk! And that fact defenitely had a great impact on her couture art.

What I love about her way of expression is that it is fearless, bold, she is not affraid of mixing concepts of life, art, pop-culture. And from all those mixed pieces we have ingenuine conglomerate of beautiful couture as a result. Mentioning punk, she was first desiger who incorporated and brought it in mainstream fashion pushing well known boundaries of haute couture.

She loves to correspondet to tradition so one of her trade mark are tartan patterns. She incorporates them in couture, making finest ensembles, all of that featured by voluminous down parts of gowns. Only Vivienne can make a glamorous wedding dress inspired by this scottish trade mark still looking gorgeous and breathtaking. Her art is brave, decadent but still elegant and on every fashion enthusiast´s "the best off" list. I think that is still the great thing about Britain´s fashion. It´s original, brave and full of experiment in visual way.

Talking about wedding dress, her work, a one particular piece, was featured in the famous fashion movie, "Sex And The City I". A stunning wedding dress worn by Sarah-Jessica Parker, was a such memorable moment, an instant all over globe recognizable move. More than that one designer couldn´t wish! But Vivienne is not about that, about fame or glory. She is her couture, she lives through her fashion expression and that´s the most important thing avoiding tendency drama, filtrating it in pure art.

What are your impressions and thoughts about Vivienne Westwood´s work? Do you like her edgyness, do you find it interested and glamorous?

Thank you for your attention!

GIRLIE IRIDESCENCE BY SIMONE ROCHA

There is sometimes hard to be original and constant in the fashion design with the visual and style innovations. But if you are a fashion insider and even someone who is in the fashion you know that the name of Dublin designer stands for the original style with the huge wearable factor. She is the designer that makes clothes extravagant enough to be noticeable at the first glimpse but easy to wear in the final realization. So when you see that some current influencer is rocking the unusual piece on the street it is probably the item by Simone Rocha.

 The same vibes with light experimental antipodes were on the sight of the latest Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection. The texture and fabrics were in the first focus with the heterogenic realizations of the same ones. The fluffy and over voluminous silhouette which was standing out like the sugar candy cotton was the main leading point of the creative strive in this collection. But don´t let that the deep romanticism seduce you or…

UPGRADING THE NEW AESTHETICS

The Autumn/Winter 2018 Pre-Fall Collection is the second one with the new designer at the head Clare Waight Keller. After Ricardo Tisci has left Givenchy this in February this year Clare Waight Keller has become a sweet and hard at the same time chance to bring the new and fresh start at the Givenchy and open the new era in the aesthetic sense. Seems that after the Spring/Summer 2018 Ready To Wear collection presented a few months ago she has embraced the main and leading style themes of Givenchy but giving them new and personalized touch.

The latest Autumn/Winter 2018 Pre-Fall Collection has everything that the sophisticated and refined collection needs. A few colors, romantic pleated textures, robust coats, cowboy boots upgraded in the style wise chic, the selective and sleek choice of jewelry with matte surfaces, the coolness brought by the sunglasses a.k.a aviators. Seems that the aesthetic sense and choice for which Clare Waight Keller has decided to go is very modern, keeping th…

HOW TO DRESS LIKE A STAR BY EMILIA WICKSTEAD

The fashion horizon is full of designers that search their own particular style and design. With that on the mind seems like being a fashion designer is really hard and expensive work. So when the aesthetic or the key look is found you stick to it with less or more changes. Seems like Emilia Wickstead is heading towards the star-dusted fashion way. With the crystal clear approach to her style, she is one of the young designers that will definitely be at the peak of the fashion top sooner or later.

The perfect example of that was on the sight in her latest Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection. With plenty of dresses as the main focus revealing the ultimate feminine orientation of the whole collection, she has played with the neo-romantic forms giving them more robust and heavy accents but with the logic purpose. And that purpose was to create the archaic looks with the modern volume and silhouette.

The sheer moments were there too, just as the hints of modern and contemporary se…

BACK TO "BLACK" BY VERA WANG

If you are a fashion fan and love everything about the fashion the name Vera Wang is not an unknown fact. The brides wear and the wedding gowns which she has made for the Hollywood A-List celebrities have catapulted Vera Wang in the fashion Olymp and her aesthetic and very romantic but so refined approach to the always slippy and tricky area of wedding outfits has become the trademark and the epitome for this kind of dresses. But Vera Wang design is so much more and her sense of fashion and style are so much wider and complex that it is really breathtaking and every admiration-worthy.

The fashion concept in the Haute Couture and Ready To Wear collections is darker and on the total opposite side of cheerful brides wear area. It is much deeper, melancholic, almost on the extravagant side. These dark vibes were on the scene at her latest Autumn/Winter 2017 collection. Even there the melancholic touches were strong. The same spirit was kept in her latest Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear C…

CONCIOUS STYLE SEDUCTIONS

We all need a little bit of the glamour! It can be in the clothing item, in the underwear piece or in something much simpler like the red lipstick. Seems that the aesthetic of Roberto Cavalli has been in the continuous seductive strive. But lately, these notes are very much toned down in the house of Roberto Cavalli. The easy chic, the loosed up prints which are so typical design jam of Cavalli, the less revealing cuts as the usual ones.

The same style vibes were on the sight in the latest Autumn/Winter 2018 Pre-Fall Collection. Seems like the chic and seductive notes are low but still remain in the sphere or luxurious textures and fabrics as well as in the playful prints. The sleek silhouettes were more exception than the already considered forms with the accents on the typical autumnal pieces like the coats, raincoats, sweaters, and maxi-dresses.

The prints are always fun part when the word is about Roberto Cavalli style. These ones are playful and colorful with the strong vibrant b…
