Keeping the throwback moments alive here! This week I decided to look and present to you haute couture collections that were made few years ago and in this way to show you how ageless and eternal couture is. Today the word is about Valentino haute couture show for Spring/Summer 2008. Actually this collection was the last one made my himself, Mr.Valentino Garavani, so the importance and cause to share my impressions with on this collection you are even bigger!

I can´t simpy imagine what was going in the Valentino´s creative mind and strive when he was making his last collection! But the final result was the impecable and gorgeous "hommage" to his work. Most importantly he stepped back when he was on top, I can say that! In this collection he rounded up all of his aesthetic approaches in modern, everlasting elegant design which are stunning even today. From quirky and playful cocktail dresses boosted with tons of feminine features like accentuated waists, colorful textures and rich floral prints to the most astonishing pieces which were gowns feather alike light made of finest silk and chiffon. Naked shoulders were included for ultra feminine touch. Mr. Valentino hasn´t ever made any decadent fashion, even in "all black" ensembles he kept his famously loosed approach to woman´s elegance.

For all fashionistas who are more into the fashion you will notice that in this whole collection there wasn´t any famous Valentino red dress! They were displayed on the wall of the room where the fashion show was held! With this move Valentino did amazing thing; he successfully had avoided his trademark of going into the "cliche" putting in on to pedestal of eternal fashion anthology! With this fact and with presented fashion show, Mr. Valentino went into the legends of high fashion! Without any pathetic and megalomanic trace! Just doing the thing he knew the best, making gorgeous fashion!

What do you think about this collection?

Thank you for the attention!

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…


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 …


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…


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.



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…
