I observed that I usually prefer the pre-collections at Lanvin rather than the runway shows. Why? I love their mood! The resort for 2015 is just the real Lanvin thing- very Parisienne, non-chalant and romantic. The model Jamie Bochert matches perfectly to the slightly bohemique style of the pieces! Full of beige, red, brown and black, we had a lot of foulards, embroideries and fabulously decorated dresses and pants. Alber Elbaz made me again fall in true French love!
Looks like we have the most amazing collection for Pre-Fall! Riccardo Tisci outdid himself- this collection for Givenchy is so beautiful, oriental but at the same time modern! Full of sequinned sari dresses, masculine boots and blazers, colourful gowns and printed jackets, the presentation was done in snowy New York with models like Jamie Bochert. I’s kept in Riccardo’s recent mood- African tribal style mixed with casual urban pieces. The collection is not only interesting, but also very refreshing and elegant!
Proenza Schouler collection for Pre-Fall 2014 is definitely one of the coolest. The hottest label from New York did a small Pre-collection that joins all their biggest hits- navajo prints, minimalistic coats and amazing shoes. I really love all the colours and fabrics (shrilling and suede) …They seem to be so warm! As always, tapping the most coolest model ever, Jamie Bochert, the collection underlines again, that the New York chic is owned by Proenza. P.s. It seems that orange will be back during Autumn 2014… Just see the Altuzarra collection!
During the SS14 Fashion Week in New York, one label that was the most buzzed around was surely Proenza Schouler. The designer duo, Lazara Hernandez and Jack McCollough, made their sophisticated and eponymous label the hottest export product from the Big Apple! Gathering the coolest models around (Jamie Bochert and Edie Campbell, for example?), mixing fabrics that no one other would use (LUREX!) and creating the new New York chic, the PS boys really nailed it. The collection was kept in warm, creme / red / gold colours with some small dose of tree branch print. We also spotted some ethno vibes- the bags and coats with this navajo-like material and all these metallic bustiers with golden flowers and buggs on it! I found the shoes too a bit African inspired- these wooden platforms and leather embroideries made it this season on the accessory list.
This lurex striped maxi dress. Looks so amazingly sexy and beautiful on Jamie. Lurex, a very artificial fabric, that is not really considered us a luxury material, makes the dress suprisingly soft and delicate! And notice one thing- this a bit disco-like gown is not styled with heels, but… metallic geek sandals. Love it insanely.
Stripes definitely were on the mind of one designer… Marc Jacobs did mostly identical tops at his both Resort collection for 2014- at his own line, Marc Jacobs, were Jamie Bochert wore a striped fur sweater and at Louis Vuitton, where model Ondria Hardin had a very similar piece! So now, the question is: which one is more expensive?
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!
I was crying during the show! That was so, so horrifying that Marc Jacobs is out of Louis Vuitton and that it was his last collection for this luxurious fashion house from Paris. Will somebody be better than this American in Paris? Surely, these were fantastic years with Jacobs- Night Porter, geometrical shapes, boudoir, trains, grunge, African tribal inspirations… These were just few of things that were accompanying us together with Jacobs. It will be very sad for now. But, about the collection now. It was like a mix of everything that Marc did for LV. The show was presented in gothic venue with a dark fountain, victorian buildings and a grand clock that gave a dramatic twist to the collection. Edie Campbell, the muse of Marc Jacobs, opened the collection in an amazing logo body, having chains and a massive feather decoration on head. The next models (a lot of famous faces!) were also dresses in Victorian inspired way- detailed gowns, feather hats and… yes, denim jeans that was a surprise. That looked epic. C’mon, only MJ could mix a Victorian dress with jeans. And that’s why my heart will always have a place for Marc Jacobs collection. Even if they will be a fail.
That was a very classical Lanvin collection- dresses, jackets, t-shirts with skirts- ant that all in energetic metallic fabrics! Well, that was surely not the best Lanvin, but it wasn’t bad. I loved the Great Gatsby inspired dresses- in reality, the collection was like a loud party under Jay Gatsby’s roof. Everything was kitschy and full of splendour… and what a bit suprised me, pretty warm as for Summer. But still, the collection was nothing spectacural, although cool. Very Lanvin!
