THE NEW HIT STYLE DIRECTION BY GIAMBATTISTA VALLI

The vision of the high feminine design for a woman who likes to be dressed up and to look all elegant and stylish, that is definitely the guideline for the creative strive if you ask Giambattista Valli. His aesthetic of the high classic design with the romantic details, like the big ruffles or pastel colors, have definitely become the trademark of his work. If we look at the latest collections by Valli he likes to mix the exclusiveness of the Haute Couture in the Ready To Wear niche. The thrill and joy of fashion is definitely something that has become a standard thing in Valli design.

Yet the latest collection, the Pre-Fall 2019 one is something else. It has more toned down standards in the drama and more approachable spirit to the everyday clothes. The opening looks of the collection, the midi-dresses in the romantic appeal but still very handy and easy to wear. The lack of the dramatic silhouette enriched by the ruffles here was not to be seen. The ruffles were toned down in the simple almost minimalistic kind of flare with the tiny floral prints and few hints of bows. With the more simple textures in the fabric choice was here just to undertone the totally new fashion story of Giambattista Valli design.

The very exceptional were quotidian ensembles paired with the sleek flared trousers and elegant jackets. The jackets in the animal prints as well as in the florals and graphic, were something new in the Valli concept and this fact only shows and proofs the more daily wear nature of this collection. If we add to that the fact of the big bags featured in, then this collection was something new and fresh in the design theme of Valli.

The traces of the typical Valli fashion were held down in the maxi dresses. But here the sleek and minimal silhouette was imperative. With the "Plisse" textures as the main occupation, it has brought the totally new light in the no-big-ruffles concept. The only extravagant drama was on the feet. The shoes boosted by the fringes have given to every outfit an extra point in the direction of the already known Giambattista Valli codes.

And here was the point where the whole thing was laid down in the direction of the more daily appropriate wear following the rest of the looks that were very casual and indeed by the daily utility colored. That doesn´t have to be a bad thing. Just the pointing fact of the evolution which every fashion house needs to go through! And this evolution has been successfully done, no doubt to that!

What do you think about this collection? Do you like this new aesthetic of Giambattista Valli that is more daily wear appropriate? Which look do you like the most?

MUTED STYLE BEAUTY BY ALBERTA FERRETTI

For Alberta Ferretti, everything is in the range of the vintage alike casuals. At least that is what her latest Pre-Fall 2019 collection says. The romantic touch that was so eponymous for this label has stepped out and the more youthful and edgy vibes were on the display. The trousers, the oversized jackets, the mommy-jeans, the deep shade of the cognac that will be so IN the season ahead. Seems like Alberta Ferretti is keeping with the trends and social media flare that nourishes and pushes more the casual and daily variations of the style rather than the girlie, romantic one.

Even in the concept of the dresses, they were very casual almost in the sports mode. The lightly robust knits have just emphasized the "ready-to-go-everywhere" outfits. With the more toned down coloristic solutions like the muted yellow or green and with the over-knees boots, this collection develops, even more, the autumnal fashion story. The cozy aspect was definitely the guiding line for this collection. The cape alike coats layered over the sweater-dress with the leather belt just to give the whole layering thing the definitive silhouette.

The volume was on even in the trench coat editions and that was more in the upper parts that worked like the balloon alike versions of the form. With the accentuated waist the airy form was toned down but with the huge 90s vibe. The shallow and the sleek lines were there too. Alberta Ferretti usually has the more flowy and ethereal silhouettes but in this collection, they were rather bold, opulent and somehow heavy alluring the lazy fogy mornings still serving us the polished looks. A little more typical Alberta Ferretti flare was caught in the evening dresses. With the shiny silver embellishments dresses, the silky blouses tucked in the wide flared jeans, the refined embroidered mini-dresses in all black. Here the classy Alberta Ferretti lady was peaking through. 

This collection has shown another new side of Ferretti style. More on the nostalgic kind of side, with the deep colors, heavy textures, with the more casual spins, it has offered the style and fashion what the contemporary young women love to wear. Still very luxurious and fashionable, with the classic stuck in the 90s but somehow so reliable and willing to be rocked!

What do you think about this collection? Do you like the style from this collection or do you fancy more "typical" Alberta Ferretti design with the more pastels, flowy and airy textures?

Thank you for the attention!

THE FASHION STORY OF A BEATLE BY STELLA McCARTNEY

There is a fluid line between the casuals and high elegance. Seems like Stella McCartney has that design guiding line every time she creates her collections. The synchronized connection between these two highlights is definitely something that has been the trademark of Stella Mccartney´s creative passion. The elegance of the nonpretentious codes collaborated with the luxurious yet nature and eco-friendly accents are something that has become a constant thing in McCartney style and that makes any collection by Stella McCartney simply stunning and fresh.

The same visual vibe we were getting from her latest Pre-Fall 2019 collection. With the sweet reminiscence of the famous Beatles times, she has taken that "archaic" and "vintage" kind of spirit and has brought it into the new light of the contemporary elegance. The soft tweed solutions in the fabrics looked so light and tactile, just like the first look of the collection shows. The grey accents with the light material in the conglomerate ensemble alluring the mixture of the stylish trenchcoat and the casual dress counts for the impeccable quotidian style choice.

The perfection was definitely in the dresses following along. Here the coloristic choice was far more vibrant and vivid. The tangerine orange one with the mini ruffles cascading falling has definitely the festivity in the visual sense but in the textured sense, too! Or the lemon yellow one with the slightly robust knitting surface. With the fringes on the top and on the sleeves just to "blur" the perfection and the monochromatic nature of it all. The little "Glitz and Glatz" spirit was caught with the more glamorous edition of the dresses. The shiny embellishments in the silver and black, or the chiffon one, have offered definitely the more elegant variation of Stella McCartney style that has been inspired by the famous times of The Beatles.

There is definitely something nostalgic in this collection, for sure. The silhouette that was so loosed up alluring the modern hippy vibes, the faux fur ensembles with the flared trousers and cozy jacket on the top, the smart tailored "Smoking" or the mini-dresses that looked very retro and story-telling but yet so new and fresh. Like the sculpted dresses that have had the geometric feel to it but paired with the edgy accessories like the platforms and oval mini-bags, they seemed so fresh and so new. And that is the feeling that Stella McCartney wanted to capture in this collection. And she did it, successfully, in her own way!

What do you think about this collection? Do you like the modern feel to it? Which ensemble do you like the most?

THE RE-DEFINITION OF FASHION CLASSICS BY MOSCHINO

For Jeremy Scott, the fashion is like the playground with a multitude of visual and design solutions. With the heterogenic orientations that have the same background in the refining and filtering the phenomenon of the pop and urban culture, his collections are the simulacrum of the edgiest and so avant-garde looks that are exciting and full of visual telling but still so classic and in some fresh and unique way elegant and popular. The playful note in the Jeremy Scott is definitely that is on-the-go if we see the collections for Moschino. The not-so-serious approach is something that here is a must but still developed in the medium of the mainstream fashion codes that any fashion fans likes and adores.

Nothing less in that kind of sense was the latest collection by Moschino. The themes that in the almost theatrical and full-story-telling mode were saturated were presented here but with the step further in the past. The theme of urban and pop culture was mixed with the ancient Roman theme that in the Jeremy Scott vision was brought with the dose of respectful irony serving us the most gorgeous pieces. With the ultra-boosted and exaggerated hype of Ancient Roman history that was an additional part in the accessories case, the urban and pop approach was in the clothes.

From the well-cut coat in the A-form has featured the big red bow around the waist falling like the cape on the back. This uber-proportion of one item was definitely the highlight that was presented throughout the whole collection, on the hair for example or ultra-big earrings. This just shows the aesthetic approach of Jeremy Scott, his tendency to go with the over-board with the little features breaking down like that the expecting factor of the already known. And his skill to stay on the horizon of the classic fashion mainstream that is still wearable.

For example, the one-shouldered sleek silhouetted satin red dress is definitely one item that is considered to be on the classic side of the horizon but if you break that already known code with the unexpected item like the shield alike corset on the top of it, you get a totally new concept of the design. And that is what makes the design from Moschino so exciting and playful with the aesthetic that anyone could relate to. On the same level but with the rock-chic touch were the other ensembles, like the all-black interluded with the golden prints two-piece one made from an edgy variation of the cocktail dress paired with the same jacket on the top. Or another by the racing-inspired attire, the multi-printed mini-dress with the ruffled bow on the skirt and short jacket in the same print story.

This all was more daily versions of the collections. The night versions were in the very glamorous niche with the feathers and fringes attached on the long or mini dresses in the mannerism of Big Gatsby. Now and there were also typical Moschino looks, like dark Barbie the black dress with the crinoline bare construction on the top of the skirt. Or the pure rock vibe in pencil trousers and blazer in the same vibe with the long cape, again, just for the edgy drama addition. The final look could sum up what this collection was all about. The high elegant midi-dress paired with the casual sports jacket and shiny long leather hand glows. Edgy, classy, modern.

What do you think about this collection? Do you like the aesthetic of Moschino that is playful and edgy? Which look do you like the most from this collection?
