A TRIBUTE TO STREET STYLE BY MARC JACOBS

Marc Jacobs has been known as very imaginative desiger. His collections always reveal something new and they have been more than just a pure fashion. If you think that fashion is mainly aesthetic thing without any further social percussion Marc Jacobs and his design vision and philosophy are here to ensure you about that. The collection presented yesterday, on the 16-th February at The New York Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2017 was everything just not the pure fashion show. Although the beautiful fashion pieces were displayed, if you ask Mr. Jacobs this collection was his tribute to the street fashion.

When we talk about street fashion one of the main pieces of this puzzle has been defenitely a hip hop era by which Jacobs was inspired to make this collection! But the heterogenic vision of it and very artisticly vivid approach to it needed the personal statement slash explanation of Marc Jacobs himself. So here was what he said about his creative MOJO for this collection: "(...)this collection was "an acknowledgement and gesture of my respect for the polish and consideration applied to fashion that will forever be the foundation of youth culture street style". (source www.vogue.co.uk.) With that being said we have got the better reception frame in which we could put this collection. So now as we know the reason and inspiration for it, we can talk about was Marc Jacobs vision well put, was it hit or miss.

The mentioned street style and hip hop could be seen in stylisticly refined traces like golden maxi chaines around the neck, cozy baggy tracksuits, pumped hats which were defnitely a true eyecatcher. But this inspiration and adoration of hip hop goes back to the roots because the collection had strong seventies´ vibes; from wide trousers, "Saturday Night Fever" alike platforms and furry "thrift shop" jackets in very vintage, posh version of it. Perfect knitts were the main domain of this collection! There were not so much evening dresses, just mini skirts colored by disco mannerism. The main focus was commom daily wear! But if Jacobs presented only that the show would not be so excited. The excitement was hidden in extravangt already mentioned pumpy hats, exaggerated vintage vibes. And between all of that the most perfect autumn/winter pieces were showed; luxurious coats, furry bundled jackets and refined knitts.

This show was the perfect example how fashion works, how fashion feels, how fashion thinks and how fashion re-acts! It was an aestheticly perfect jump into the future giving a tribute to the past. This collection was impecable example of how fashion recycles style inspirations from the past making the new, fresh and witty hybrid of design! If Marc Jacobs wanted to re-evaluate the puls of streeatwear, he created the new aesthetic at the same time, pushing the borderlines of visual expectation more further and made the collection which was a totally hit, a collection which will be considered as a milestone of ready to wear stories!

What do you think about this collection?

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…
