A THIN LINE BETWEEN COUTURE AND READY TO WEAR

If anyone nourishes haute couture´s timeless aesthetic than it is defenitely Osca de la Renta house of design! Their collection, even those made for ready to wear shows are always on high visual pedestal and aesthetic that it is really hard to find correct line between the couture and ready to wear! Now, this is not a bad thing! It just provides us the most refined face of ready to wear collection, making everyday clothing more glamorous and imaginatively braver! 

That was the same thing with latest Oscar de la Renta Autumn/Winter 2017 Ready To Wear collection! A mixture of wearable cozy pieces and high couture defined gowns which are the trademark of this fashion house is so on point. What catches the eye are futuristic approach of it which is here meant to attract more young consumers with extraordinary style approach. But let us see what Oscar de la Renta offers us this seasson! Let me just say that creative directors of this house are Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia after Ocar de la Renta´s passing in 2014.

The color blocking is the first thing what stands out; very vibrant colors spectrum from red, yellow to very pink. This colors (un)matching game can be seen on the more cozy outfits, like voluminous coats with wide spread silhoutte boosted with wider bell alike sleeves. Or in compacted more accessories-ish items like big belts or cutted tops in combination with simple black classic suit or just pencil trousers. Oh, when mentioning the trosers the sleekness of them is so impecable and elegant.

The more couture side of this collection is in the form of voluminous ball gowns! This is more traditional and very original "de la Renta" moment! If you add to it rich ornamented prints in maxi or mini variations, we have the perfect "deja vu" Oscar de la Renta fashion moment! The only contemporary touch in this whole story is defenitely material choice! Very stiff and robust texture which gives the ensembles in moving very aerodynamic flare to them! The more playful moment is defenitely in the form of furry mini skirts! This is very decadent and ultra glamorous side that is often to see in new de la Renta design!

If you look closely to the faces of the models you can see very vibrant makeup on the eyes! More rainbow alike game with hot pink or "azzuro" blue sharp eyeliner! If the eyeliner is avoided than all pink eyelids are displayed which is a proven hint that pink is going to be a new brown when talking about eye makeup! Lips in this case are nude, more powdery beige colored. Hair is so couture alike boosted; in form of sleek and tight low bun!

So as you can see there is really a thin line between haute couture and ready to wear! It can be made on purpose on by accident! In each way the final result is werable and stunning fashion! Just like this collection! Very youthful but with classic "de la Renta" flare! And that is the beauty of this collection!

Which piece in this collection do you like the most? What do you think abouth the colors of the ensembles?

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…
