PFW: CHRISTIAN DIOR S/S 2019 READY TO WEAR COLLECTION

It was the first and the opening show of the most exciting fashion week, Paris Fashion Week. There is that old saying "If  New York, London and Milan Fashion Weeks are the cake then Paris Fashion Week is a cherry on top!" And we have to admit, with the respect to the others, there is something so gasping and dreamy about Paris Fashion Week, maybe because of the fact that it is held in the center of fashion as well as the juxtaposition when the word is about Haute Couture. Anyways, yesterday the Paris FW has begun and it was opened by never the less than the collection of Christian Dior for Spring/Summer 2019 Ready To Wear created by the now well we need to say, a strong and legendary Maria Grazia Chiuri.

If you are on Twitter, you could watch it live and that fact has only undertoned the social media consciousness and conscious approach to the today´s society. The theme was connected and inspired by the dance, the modern and contemporary dance. The dancers were there during the whole show moving and dancing giving the whole show an artistically fully rounded event. Because that was. It was more than the fashion show. The music, the gloomy and mystical spirit which was held on point with metric homogeneous rhythm. It was like you have wandered into the dance show, the models were walking among the moving around dancers.

Now that we have captured the whole atmosphere which corresponded amazingly with the whole display of the outfits, let us talk about the collection. The dancing theme in the visual sense which was there in a concrete way was there in the fashion metaphorical way too. The ensembles which were inspired by the dancing gear, the modern ballerinas was kept throughout the whole collection. The sleek body on the top paired with the midi length chiffon dress was the leading and starting point of this whole story. The nude and simply toned down colors developing that famous Dior grey tones were there too.

The light and easy falling silhouette which was still very soft and feminine but with the soft casual chic which was held and captured in the most gentle fabrics. The already mentioned chiffon which has been for years so Dior texture, there were plenty of jerseys, even the elevated version of denim, the delicate but rough and robust lace was there too. The most beautiful and pure glamorous were definitely evening dresses with the shiny features coming through delicately. 

 Although the theme was in the causal and sports kind of way, Maria Grazia Chiuri has successfully delivered a fully romantic collection with the refined and polished approach. She knows how to make low key but strong clothes that does not scream all-eyes-on-me kind of vibe. Her style vision is smart, well thought and yet so feminine, gentle and simply womanly! And we like this kind of Woman that Maria Grazia Chiuri portraits!

What do you think about this collection? Do you like the contemporary dance theme? What is your thought on the forms and silhouettes as well as the colors?

Thank you for the attention!

MFW: DOLCE & GABBANA S/S 2019 READY TO WEAR

Go big or go home! Seems like with every collection Dolce & Gabbana have esteblished their design strive. When the word is about the D&G DNA we talk about pure femininity that is direct not assertive in any way, Italiana spirit all over the place. The explosions of colors, of textures, forms, silhouettes all of that seems to be pilled up and it has had its climax in their latest Spring/Summer 2019 Ready To Wear collection which was the final show of the Milan Fashion Week.

The already mentioned DNA was the leading point for this collection. With one hundred and seventy outfits as the final result seems that Dolce & Gabbana have decided to establish once again their design footprints in the most anthological kind of way. If you are a beginner in the high fashion sense than this collection could be the perfect introduction into what Dolce & Gabbana design is all about. It is more about fashion, for sure! But it is more about the paying homage to Italy, to Sicily, to the Italian tradition which they so joyful and impeccable incorporate into their design spirit.

The flowy and uber flowy almost grandiose opera alike costume dramatic dresses, the flirty spirit brought in the shape of rich ruffles, the sleek and pointy accents of the little black dress, the high cut shorts in the gold embroidery paired with the wide-shouldered jackets or printed t-shirts with D&G motto like: #DGFAMILY, The Original, The Only One, The First! The pretentious mannerism is something that comes along with D&G style but they can pull it out like nobody else. Just like the woman for which they design. She is fearless, contemporary, loves tradition but in the rebellious kind of way.

This eclectic spirit is something that has become a trademark for Dolce & Gabbana and they really know how to swim in these tricky waters. Because in all of that silhouettes, textures, fabrics heterogenic frenzy everything was on point. Everything has got the D&G signature or as Domenico and Stefano confirmed at the end of a show, the big DNA sign with the fingerprint alike mosaic made of mini prints what Dolce & Gabbana style and concept was all about. They have once again established the beauty of their aesthetic celebrating not just themselves but La Bella Italia, too!

What do you think about this collection?  Do you like Dolce & Gabbana design? Do you think they are the biggest Italian designer names in the history of Italian fashion?

MFW: PRADA S/S 2019 READY TO WEAR

You know what to expect when you watch the show by Prada! The innovative approach, the edgy spirit and the modern and to everyone interesting eclecticism. This is something that has made Prada an inventor in the fashion field. And the fact that those design inventions are still in the niche of everyday outfits and style and that oxymoronic symbiosis is something why the collections by Prada are the most anticipated ones because then you know you have had the glimpse into the fashion future and that in the fashion is something that is all about.

The WOW effect this time was on the perfect peek. In the latest Ready To Wear collection for Spring/Summer 2019, Prada has offered a rare polished look with the impeccable cuts and forms. Seems like the initial visual motivation was a modern assertive feminine version of the boy uniform. The first look tells all about that. The midi shorts, the high collar shirt, and even the short hair of the models, all looked very tom-boy alike but in the good Prada mannerism. The conjunction of the sleek and fluid silhouettes was on the same level as the satin textures. Here we could see the lack of the famous prints´ clash. The monochrome and low key approach in the coloristic sense has only accentuated the high classy appearance of the collection.

But there is always something edgy and wild in Prada´s design game. And here there were the tops. The deep cut with the horizontal strap underneath the breasts area just to give this whole light masculine look a huge feminine touch. Here the prints game was more leveled up with the famous Prada lines. And then the mainstream look alike spin-off. The elegant coats, the two-piece ensemble alluring the customized version of the school uniform, the simple white shirt underneath the grey minimalistic sweater on the top of the satin beige skirt. The edgier were definitely the same versions but brought in the chiffon see-through edition. The shorts inspired by the masculine underwear have only undertoned the androgynous nature of the collection.

But then when you think that this could be the direction of this whole show, the epic turning point. The gorgeous and glamorous dresses in black with the midi embellishments shining through, the already mentioned sexy tops paired with the flowy A-skirts with the usual so Prada happy prints mixed with the three-dimensional bows and floral ornaments, the balayage printed pencil skirts or the midi baby doll beauties with the appliques on the white-pink or green satin layout.

This collection was definitely something different when we think about Prada. The absence of the famous eclectic vibe, the mixture of the casual and more refined and simple, almost the minimalistic??  dress-code has shown that Prada is brave not just in the plain design approach but in the philosophy of the fashion. Prada is good not just in the fashion but also in the detecting the more wider social references. And here they were incorporated giving us the pure, "detoxed" and simple version of fashion a.k.a world! Something we all could learn from!

What do you think about this collection? Do you like this more minimalistic Prada design or do you prefer the typical eclectic Prada design?

Thank you for the attention!
