London Fashion Week | Fall Winter 2011 »Part II«

This is London Fashion Week, part II!

Paris Fashion Week, starts this week and we are going crazy with so many information to digest! But show after show, our love for fashion gets bigger! So... doesn't matter.

Milan is on the way but we don't forget the London brands and designers!
Here is the last post for the London Fashion Week, Winter 2011 season. New collections and new ideas are on the table, let's digest it in the most glory's way... =D

Enjoy it!

Paul Smith
Paul Smith have always a great show! Like for the past season, he decides to explore the masculine style and attitude at the feminine body! For me, it results perfectly! The tuxedo's, jeans, cardigans with white shirts and with an apropried tie and also the hair is extremely well done! I love this looks. The glasses and the bags are amazing! I want this brown leather bag! It have, absolutly, my name on it!!!

Mulberry, knowned by a particulary type of bags, show us some clothes with embroydered flowers, great shoes and as expected, stunning bags! The classic bag is now reinterpretated in a new way, one in green with a shoulder strap and the other in camel with silver details!

Marios Schwab
Marios Schwab, surprises me soo much! The details of this collection are absolutly amazing. I love the little pearl details in the dresses... Designing the womens body... Delicious! The color like orange and blues gives to this collection the glamour that it deserves.

Acne is modern, young and atractive! I love the new shapes of the shoes! The skirts, trousers and specific pieces in amazign fabrics! I just love the details of the transparency's outside the jeans! The effect is pretty good and with those shoes that are amazing, the look is complete!

Holly Fulton
Holly Fulton is always interactive and brings her collection in a funny way! Details like, the sky-line of a city, lips, and vivide colors like yellow, red and blue all of them mixed with black and white. I love the Louboutin shoes, and the earings with black lips! So funny! Also the Blue/black/white dress with the sky-line and rivers (i think!) are extremelly gorgeous!

David Koma
David Koma, shows her black dresses with circles effects! The dresses have faces with unusual colors, fur in funny places... The shoes for me are amazing! I love the entire platform, and also the heel in an extremely unusual beauty!

London Fashion Week | Fall Winter 2011 »Part I«

I know, i know... I'm late!
But its better later than never! Right? =D

So, London Fashion Week, always give us a different taste of the others fashion weeks! Here the things are different and very british! Relaxed and sophisticated...

Now I show you some of the best shows from this Fashion Week, and as soon as possible I'll show you the second part of this post! Ok?

I hope you like it!

Burberry Prorsum
For me is (almost!) always the high of the top, of the London Fashion Week! This collection is very collorfull at the beggining, whith structured jackets, as another magnificent reinterpretation of the 'trench' by Christopher Bailey! But, for me, the top of this collection are the black/white jackets in cotton at the end of the show! This lightweight wool silk trench coats, with fabulous detailing, including the wood silk with cable knit finishing and lace-ups in black leather. I love them...

Aquascutum in terms of collor pallete are magnific! I love the blues mixed with orange and camel... The coats are very nice and i love the fur details on the gloves! The styling are very good, and it feels soo warm and confortable that i just want to embrace some looks! xD.

Mary Katrantzou
Mary Katrantzou with her glorious patterns, gave me again a huge smile! I love the patterns and the silhouette, but i think that this is more of the same, of the past collections! I love her designs and her work, and the Louboutin boots are fabulous with the outfits!

Christopher Kane
Christopher Kane, came with a great collection. For me "the extraordinary plastic trims that arrived to infect severe black shift dresses", (like said Tim Blanks) were the funny part, of the collection (and that's the part that we discover that Kane is a pure genius!). And where the idea came from? The collection's starting point was a simple challenge: "Let's find a textile that's never been used." Said Kane.

Pringle of Scotlan
Pringle of Scotland's collection is a mix of patterns, colors, fur, leather and soft detailings in each piece! The fur sleeves and also the boots are simple details that i love. The orange trousers came from the past season but are in the perfect mood for this Fall! Love it!

New York Fashion Week | Fall Winter 2011 »Part II«

The continuation of the 'best' from New York Fashion Week!

A selection of my favourites shows are here... Including Phillip Lim, Proenza Schouler and Rodarte!!

I hope you like it!

Michael Kors
Michael Kors celebrate's this year, 30 years in the Fashion Business!!! Congratulations...! =D
And for celebrate, this collection came in a perfect timing!
As always, simple cuts, long dresses, fur and transparency... Camel, black and red are the colors for this Kors season! I like Kors, and his show at New York is always a pleasure to see!

3.1 Phillip Lim
3.1 Phillip Lim, was a shocking surprise! In a good way...! The accessories, are just perfects! I love the coats, and their collar's. I love the colors, the materials... but the green in some pants and skirts were just a fabulous detail! I loove it...

Proenza Schouler
Proenza Schouler was soo great! I love the first looks, so simple but colorfull. The coats are awesome and the mix of prints in the most part of the looks are just the perfect way to Jack and Lazaro express their love for Fashion, designing their own prints! I think they'r perfect...

Rodarte is a peace of heaven... The inspiration (the movie 'Days of Heaven' by Terrence Malick) and the result of that is extremely well done! The dresses with the sky and the wheat field are so inspiring! The colors, the cut of each piece the embroydery or the polka dots! Everything is soo romantic and just like candys for the eyes! Je t'aime! :)

Victoria Beckam
I think that Victoria Beckam is a case of extremely good taste. Dot! The collection is a bit colorfull but also with a taste of earth-tones. I love the bags, the accessories, the dresses, shoes... everything. Everytime i see a new collection of her, i have always a bigger surprise! Just loving her work.

Rachel Zoe
Rachel Zoe. Pregnant and Fashion Designer! =D Ok. No kidding! Ahahah
This collection don't have a Fashion Show! Yet. But, I think is extremely wearable, as expected, but the opposite of Rachel Zoe style. Don't you think? She said it, and now we prove it! Elegant, Chic and Modern... this is the 'Rachel Zoe' woman!

New York Fashion Week | Fall Winter 2011 »Part I«

Here it is... My 'expected' coverage of the best shows from New York Fashion Week... I hope you'll like it!

Leave a comment and tell what's your favourite show...!
That's the same as mine? We'll see...


Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang, for me, was the suprise of the entire Fashion Week. The perfect way that he matche's different types of textiles is absolutely fabulous. The colors are very Wang and the silhuette respects her name too! I love this collection, like i love the different 'mood' of his collection for this Spring Summer2011. Love it!

Many people liked very much this Altuzarra show... Here ladies are really dressed for Fall! And like Garance Doré said: is "like the girls were all movie stars escaped from the Oscars, simply tossing on an overcoat over their red-carpet dresses."
The dresses are very simple, but with gorgeous colors. Also knit-sweaters are all around, like fur and, of corse, the overcoats!!

Donna Karan
Donna Karan, was a beautifull and glamorous show. I did not like the Spring Summer 2011 Collection that much, but I think, this collection is the perfect way to I forget that fact! A 'Dior-inspired-silhuette", was the way of celebrate the women's curves, and I just love that! Also the soft pink on the lips and the very romantic details all over the looks is just 'over-the-top'!! Love the shoes too! Magnificent...

Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs, inspired on the 70's, shows us soo many polka dots! Yes, this is absolutely 'the' trend for next Fall, and why? Marc Jacobs explains himself that this "new collection was a reaction against the loose, fluid feeling of his Spring outing." "I wanted something strict and severe," he said. Funny is the certain way to define that... i think!

Marc by Marc Jacobs
Marc by Marc Jacobs gave me soo hapiness! The male bags are just awesome! The principal colors of this collection are orange and browns. Also great patterns with 'bambis' (or something like that!), in bags and dresses! Is really great see these collection on the runway, cause this is one of the collections that i can see personally in stores... in Lisbon!

Jason Wu
Jason Wu have always a great collection. The gorgeous dresses embroydered with swarovski crystals, amazing feathers dresses and beautifull pumps! I just love all the styling and all the ambience of this runwayshow! It's soo chic!

Paris | Haute Couture SS2011 »Part II«

This is the second and the last part of the Couture Week in Paris for Spring Summer 2011!

*Elie Saab, and his 'Oscar' dresses! All women love this guy, and i love him too, because of the fantastic and amazing job that he do in each collection of each season! Just loove!

*Armani Privé, became in a very futuristic way, in a dark mood but with shiny clothes for shiny people!

*Givenchy, by Ricardo Tisci comes with an absolutely brilliant collection, that is one of the best collections for this season (in Couture!). The way that the collection is structured, and the color is worked, make realistic the way that 'Tisci' is think in the fashion industry. His a genius and this collections is part of it!

Elie Saab
There was plenty of décolleté, and sinuous limbs slipping out from skirts that were, at times, almost too split, but what today's show really evoked was the up-to-the-neck missy-ness of Norma Shearer, an Oscar winner from centuries ago. One long tulle and organza gown, piled with flowers at the shoulder and tied with grosgrain at the waist, would surely have driven La Shearer into a paroxysm of desire. Coupled with the exceptionally sweet hair and makeup, this peculiar sense of propriety took Saab's collection into territory that was new for him. It was certainly a world away from the sparks struck by his last Couture show. Just look at the bride—last time, she shimmered with hints of gold. Here, her gown drooped with organza flowers and tatters of mousseline, and her veil was almost shroudlike.

Armani Privé
When Giorgio Armani presented his made-to-order Armani Privé collection near Place Vendôme Monday evening to the likes of Sophia Loren, Jodie Foster, and Olivia Wilde, he was thinking of, Lady Gaga. Clearly, Armani is gaga for Gaga. How else does one explain that shiny molded techno-fabric that looked like it was specially created for Tron (it is, in fact, a silk-nylon blend)? Or the crystal-strung dresses that looked like three-dimensionally rendered animation (and had a touch of the gown he designed for the one-woman multimedia sensation of last year’s Grammy Awards)? Or, indeed, the sleek dome of an ovoid hat, or a glistening cage mask that would be great for the likes of Gaga on the red carpet because, really, who else would be wearing it, while perhaps not so effective for the A-list types Armani has dressed for years.

As you’ll gather at first glance by looking at these photographs, Givenchy did not have a couture show for spring—at least not in the conventional sense. The pictures here show front and back views of each of the long, Japanese-inflected designs Riccardo Tisci made this season—ten dresses which were expressly designed never to be exposed to the roar of the runway. Instead, he hung these clothes suspended in light, in a kind of exhibition, so that both reviewers and clients could take time to view them at inches-range, and reach out and touch, if we wished.
This way of presenting gave Tisci both the opportunity to describe the derivation of his ideas—an abstract homage to the Butoh dancer Kazuo Ohno, who recently died at the age of 103, (with added reference to Japanese robot-toys: the horned hats)—to prove just what goes into the work of couture, and to answer the questions it raised, such as: Why no daywear?
