SARAH BURTON ERA


If you have read some of prevoius posts of mine you already know that my all time favorite couturier and designer is Alexander McQueen! He was the reason I started my blog, who woke the passion for haute couture, so my blog is really made with a true dedication and loving memory of Lee which is still and always be missed. I had really struggles to accept the new designer that had stepped into his place and that was and still is Sarah Burton. First of all, I have to say that I admire her guts and artistic courage to stand at place of pure haute couture genius, McQueen. So in today´s post I will say my impressions about Burton´s work.

If we take a closer look at her work we will see that Sarah Burton is successfully drives Lee´s path, making haute couture which has that typical Mcqueen´s signature. Although she is not so courageouss like Lee in her visual performances, she continues to follow the main characteristics of Mcqueen couture style. And that would be opulent and enriched silhouettes, with very decadent vibes. As well as hint of fetishism can be seen and we all know that fetishes were very common highlights in original Alexander McQueen era. She is not so into provocation,  you can feel that it is not her signature vibe, but she makes gorgeous cut outs with a hint of avant gard-ish influences.

Is Sarah Burton a perfect choice for Alexander McQueen?! Well, if you ask me, and keep on mind that I deeply and seriously cherish Alexander McQueen´s work, I think that she is not a perfect but rather a good choice. I think in artistic and expressional way it can be so much better, maybe to take risk and go with more originally self-portrayed twist, so we could have a whole new experience in perception sense. But maybe that was only possible with Lee on board. Maybe big Mcqueen era has left with Lee, or maybe let su hope, there is another "savage beauty" lover out there who will write a totally new chapter in house of McQueen! Until then we have to enjoy in Sarah Burton´s work which is, great and impecable, no doubt.

What do you think about Sarah Burton´s era and her work for Alexander Mcqueen?

Thank you for the attention!

PFW: MIU MIU S/S 2018 READY TO WEAR COLLECTION

The fashion concept of design house Miu Miu has been always witty and playful. Miu Miu is an epitome for strong and confident women who love fashion but love the original approach to it. This has nothing to do with experiments ready but only bold to mix already new items into the new concept. This fresh approach to already common and actual trends was presented in the latest Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection.

Mixing prints were on the sight as the main design inspiration. Above that the mix of pieces which were taken from their known concept like the dresses featured in stunning micro stiff laced textures on the top of the simple much more leisure tops. The silhouettes were airy and wide, especially on the dresses and coats. Oh, talking about the coats. They have become the statement piece from house Miu Miu. In this collection, they were a heterogenic picture of floral and plaid tartan.

The unconventional approach was on the foots. And this trend was in the spotligh…

THE COATS SYNERGIE BY CELINE

Seems that the starting point or the first inspirational strives from where everything has been started for CĂ©line Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection was the coat or several of them. Having that point on the mind Celine was created an amazing and flowy collection with volume and cozy factor as the imperatives. The coat spirit was sensed on the dresses too. Fluent and almost avant-garde style with few hints of strong silhouettes enough to break the leisure factor which was highly participated from the inspiration point of view.

When your base is the coat or a trenchcoat to be more precise you have immediately the conquered the coloristic spectrum too. In this case, plenty of nudes and gentle colors which can go perfectly with everything were the essentials on the colors scale. But again the "Blitz" factor was presented in the sophisticated breakthrough by the vibrant tones like reds, oranges, and mustard yellows.

The inspiration by the coat was not suspended or even …

MFW: VERSACE S/S 2018 READY TO WEAR COLLECTION

The Versace Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection has probably been the hardest one to make. Not because of inspiration lack but because it was twenty years anniversary of Gianni Versace´s tragic death. With this on her mind, Donatella Versace had had the hard thing, to make something in memory of her brother, to make a remarkable collection that would celebrate Gianni´s life as well as the fashion work.

The collection was a visual collage of Versace´s sense of design with huge nineties vibes. From remarkable and typically Versace from Gianni era prints with vibrant yellow and black interludes, silky fabrics in all their glory, the eighties silhouette with big shoulders´ accents, mommy jeans, and high waisted skirts.

The more toned down colors were displayed as the show was going on. With monochromatic ensembles in red, orange or blue, to the all black ones. The pastels were involved too in the shape of elegant evening dresses with opened shoulders. The remarkable celebration of…

EASY CHIC BY BOTTEGA VENETA

The influencing and on-going trend which has been emerging more and more on the fashion scene is probably the leisure concept which has brought the casual impressions from the streets to the high fashion and runway show. The fact that fashion has been inspired by the street outfits´ fusion is nothing new but this trend looks so effortless and easy to wear from day to night so the fashion has not been more involved into the daily utilize then today.

Seems that this trend was kept on the design and inspiration eye in the house of Bottega Veneta. The luxury elegance has been replaced with causal and light wear outfits with poly-use. The latest Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection was the perfect display of the Bottega vision how the fashion can be incorporated into the mainstream of life. The glamorous trenchcoats with belts on them accentuating the elegant silhouette, the more wider forms on the dresses which were boosted up visually through the metallic studs on the pockets.

ECLECTIC COUTURE TO GO BY MARNI

The eclectic approach to the fashion design and style has always been a tricky field. The eclecticism considers the mish-mash of the textures, colors, prints, fabrics, accessories and everything else what design in fashion stands for. To have the polished and refined style in all of this vivid visual spectacle you really need a good sense for design.

This successfully eclectic spin-off was the leading design note for the Marni Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection. The heterogenic approach not just to the cuts and forms but to the fashion editions too have brought the spectacular collection to the life. By this I mean the mixture of Ready to Wear and Haute Couture. The high fashion or Couture was in the forms. The voluptuous and sculpted volume in the silhouettes was very experimental and avant-garde, the features that are more often to see in the context of the Haute Couture.

The next level that has made this collection so amazing was already mentioned an eclectic approach to i…
