Helmut Lang’s show began innocently enough, his trademark sleek trousers, body-conscious tops and functional overcoats redone for Spring in nubby silk-knit burlap. The looks were pure Helmut: functional, urban and modern. But then, gradually, a wave of sexual innuendo began to escalate. A tape-like strap was strategically placed on a semitransparent top; a bikini bottom was paired with a deep-plunging tank. Finally, a procession of crisscrossed, bondage-inspired dresses and tops whizzed through the audience. Lang, the designer who pioneered androgynous, uniform dressing, had designed a brilliant collection that could go from a Tribeca loft cocktail party to an alleyway midnight rendezvous west of Times Square.
The new resort 2015 for Christopher Bailey meant aquarelle prints and sleek skirts. Kept all in comfortable beige and strokes of relaxing blue, the collection of this London-based luxury brand felt just perfect for Spring. As we know from Dior, the season is going to be based on fragility and art. I loved the unexpected stylings of slim blouses verses a white sequined midi skirt… and of course the much in need camel coat with a big amount of buttons. Very 40’s and very wearable!
Hello, hello- camel is on the fashion horizon! The commonly beige coat that is usually said to be the most boring piece, is again trendy! No wonder why- Carine, Kim, Garance are all in love with it. Just like Max Mara, that again makes it on top this season. Style yours with sneakers, and get the Parisian chic look!
Christian Louboutin, the red sole master did something that got whole Paris breath taken away. The new edition of The Nude is a serie of five leather stilettos with the famous red sole in all colours of skin. And as I undersatnd, NUDE is the new black from mow on! The colours are from lightest to darkest skin colours, and definitely will look sexy on every leg… And certainly it will be a best-seller in all Louboutin stores, causing lines and traffic jams! (Like everyday in Paris!)
That was such surprise this morning to see the Celine Resort 2014 on their site! As Phoebe Philo didn’t let the collection to go out within others like Dior and Chanel because of Zara’s copying, Celine Resort 2014 was uploaded silently today at night. As nobody knows anything about it, by accident I saw the colledtion… and wow! The pre-collection is nothing like SS14- it’s kept in beiges, linen fabrics, fur and python. Yeah, fur. The furs were bigger than the ones in the AW13 collection! And everything out of mink… for Spring. The python leather vest looked pretty cool; the nurse dresses in pastel colours were cute; sweaters, sweatpants and coats were classical and simple. Very Celine and chic. Definitely this impressive collection is one of the best for Spring 2014… and the birkenstocks are again back in fashion!
