NYFW: CAROLINA HERRERA A/W 2017 READY TO WEAR

The queen of impecable and perfectly elegant style Carolina Herrera has proved that she knows how to maintain the high level of style realizations! There is indeed something very appealling when woman designs for women; a different, more feminine approach to it which is at the same time bold and purely aware of woman´s worth! All of that being said through fashion expression is really one of the many reasons why we love Carolina Herrera´s design! This elegance with very flowy concept, fluid silhouettes and perfectly managed textures, those are the things by which her design is always on point and star dusty colored.

The collection for Autumn/Winter presented at the New York Fashion Week was really in all of this frames and even more. Celebrating woman in simple pieces like white blouse, cozy coats or pleated skirts was in interpretation by Herrera more than astonishing. It was an elegant luxury brought in ready to wear mannerism. But lets start from the beginning! As already mentioned white blouse was the main piece which was presented at the start of the show. It´s simplicity was "deconstructed" in form of unusual high victorian alike collars enriched by sleek bows in same white color boosting the texture of them or in contrast black alluring glamorous school uniforms alike vibes. This white piece was in combination with black simply pleated skirt or in same formated skirt but in more contemporary leatherish form.

The very loose up approach was defenitely in the embody of voluminous coats! Seems like the big over-voluminous coats are here to stay so we will be defenitely seeing them in the next season. The color of these items was petroleum blue, very dark and deep but very sophisticated. This is the example how even choice of color can make an item desirable and stylisticly more excited. If the color was black the effect would not be so impecable and vivid, for sure!

Of course, Carolina Herrera is famous for her haute couture collections. And the touch of her couture divine tayloring could be sensed in this show too! The dresses were so couture alike colored that they could be immediately seen as pure couture ensembles. The uvertire for that fashion divine was in form of combination made by long pleated chiffon skirts and romanticly taylored blouses. The wavy nature of blouse sleeves and playful moving of pleated ruffles really gave airy and etherical touch to this whole story! The high point were long waisted dresses with very flowy silhouette! Boosted with glittery appliques the couture factor was on the fleek!

Even the makeup and hair were very haute couture; matt muave eyelids and natural nude lips. The hair was formed in sleek at side parted bun. But what this whole glamorous story kept down in "ready to wear" niche were flat shoes and boots or flat pointy ballerinas! This was an example that woman can look glamorous even not wearing high heels because the main focus was on the very well taylored and luxurious clothes´ ensembles. Carolina Herrera has proved that she is the ultimate high fashion creator! This collection was just the upgrade of that fact!

Which piece in this collection would you wear? What are your thoughts about Carolina Herrera´s style?

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…
