This Girl. Maryam Nassir Zadeh AW16

Maryam Nassir Zadeh is New York’s favourite among stylish, sophisticated and down-to-earth women. Her boutique, with aesthetically curated brands, and her eponymous, namesake label, are known for an affordable, yet profound approach towards fashion you want to wear everyday. For autumn-winter 2016, Maryam is expanding her line, by continuing the denim obsession – a cool, off-beat pencil skirt, as well as patched 501-style pairs of jeans are about to storm the streets. The Woody Allen women, surrounded with calm neutrals, meets a lifey acid green shade of the pussy-cat bow dress; there is also the strong fur game, from cute teddy-bear jacket to a more “investment” coat in a deep, blue colour. When those clothes are going to arrive to the Lower East Side store, a lot of them will sell quick – for now, we can just try to recreate these looks thanks to Zadeh’s masterful styling tips…

Magic in The Moonlight, so Marc Jacobs SS14.

Slide1-kopia 5

After seeing Woody Allen’s new film entitled Magic in The Moonlight, one thing got stuck in my head – the costumes. Oh yeah, they were really, really gorgeous. The plot of the movie happened between the 20’s and 30’s, and it exactly showed the style and fashion that ruled back then. And definitely the SS14’s Marc Jacobs victoriana inspired collection was very into Auntie Vanessa’s embroidered green bloose and triangular hair-cut! I think it’s all very matchy… thoughts?

The Most Scary Shows Ever!

1055268 John Galliano AW07 was inspired with Pigalle girls from Paris, wearing all these ornamental boudoir dresses and strong colour of red on them. From veiled streetwalkers to girls that had been dancing all night, models appeared with dripping make-up and carrying eerie broken dolls. The runway was like a fantastic dark circus- dusty and dark!1055267During the Alexander McQueen show in AW06, models wore reindeer horns on heads, nomadic inspired dresses, gothic black gowns and amazing witch coats. That was the real fantasy of McQueen’s world we love. And definitely this collection would make at a haunted castle Halloween party…1054885These knitted veils from Rick Owens AW12 collection channeled brutalism. Drawing on the classic beauty of Marlene Dietrich, a 1920’s bisexual icon who openly defied sexual norms, the model’s look was honeydew skin, coral lips and combed brows fenced by masks of gunmetal grey. Flowing volumes provided protective layers for his dominatrices whilst the silhouettes created a confusion of sinister and sexy. Relentless flames singed at the top of the runway as the models stalked the east side of Paris.1055264Iris Van Herpen Haute Couture AW11 was a mix of skeletal silhouettes and organ-like textures. Coiled intestines, brain tissue and snake dresses aided the vision of couture cyborgs, confirming the ongoing influence of anatomical, architectural and scientific structures in her space-borne collections. Still sits in some’s nightmares.1055269Gareth Pugh AW13 was a dull collection of recycled gowns with feathers, wood, trash bags… The headpieces made as shake, and the amazing deepness of darkness was a bit depressing. That’s what is called a scary Halloween couture. Costing a fortune, by the way…1050817

Halloween Horror’s: CDG SS14

1051578 31st of November. The city is dark. The skycrapers are off. It’s so dark, but at the same time… mysterious. Down the road in Paris, you go- it’s kind of artistic and elusive. All these people around look disturbing. Their costumes seem to be strange and not usual. VERY unusual. They all wear Comme des Garcons for SS14, which is amazingly amzaing, and at the same time creepy. Definitely some thing cool for Halloween horror fashion moment…105156110515651051569105158210515641051560
