In the fashion world, Spring offers the perfect opportunity to bite the bullet, be brave with your colour choices, and inspire the weather to follow your lead. This Spring is certainly no different: the floral print trend dominated 90 percent of the Spring/Summer 2012 runways. Numerous designers – including Diane Von Furstenberg and Mary Katrantzou – have been flooding the catwalks with various eye popping prints, from pretty paisley and checks to the more abstract and unique.
Anyone call for red carpet glamour? New York, apparently, as Zac Posen recently returned from his two season stint in Paris. All it took was a second’s glimpse at his Spring/Summer 2012 collection to have the City That Never Sleeps welcome him back with expertly toned arms.
Anyone with an aversion to hourglass shapes and corsets…it is time to jump ship. Posen can give Coco Rocha mega hips, elongate and flare like the best of them, and charm the Spanx onto any woman. He knows how to work a woman’s body. As always, much of the inspiration was from Old Hollywood, and the most impressive pieces were the – strapless, ombre, bustier, tulle, halter, satin, etc – gowns. I’m sure this post will be linked a lot during awards season.
On top of the voluptuous drama, the accessories were also a treat. Charlotte Olympia provided the complimentary footwear (in black, gold, nude and silver with a silver heel), Elizabeth Cole jewellery provided the ‘cherries on top’, Judith Leiber provided clutches, and sunglasses were provided by Illesteva. I wish runways would install shopping cart software. View Post
Miuccia Prada just presented forty-one looks of vicissitude on three runways: that is what you call a fashion show. The pleasantly neurotic show began late (it’s Prada, who cares?), starting with a fur-collared dress and travelling through looks of school girl dresses, fur-spiked swimming caps, plastic paillettes, python print, and a bevy of refined reds. This is a collection to celebrate; a prediction I’m sure you will agree with via many future editorials. See the top five looks below! View Post
Less than 48 hours from debuting on the haute couture runways of Paris, Diane Kruger decided to stun us all in some Chanel Spring Couture 2011 at the Gala de la Mode Sidaction. The beauty wastes no time.
