The SS14 for Marcelo Burlon’s County of Milan label is a mix of his classical prints (note: the old faves of cool boys, the toxic snakes) and street style influence. As Marcelo was doing only t-shirts, this season the first time he designed the whole outfits- trousers, capes and jackets! With the huge amount of animals in the collection, definitely there are some all-time classics- parrots, pythons and eagles. What I really loved about the collection, was it’s easy way of presenting- models with tattoos and mates of Burlon. All the inspirations came from the homeland of Marcelo, Patagonia, where colourful prints and over sized clothes are present. Certainly, this is the most hype collection of Summer!
The queen of Milanese Fashion Week, was of course Anna Dello Russo. She mastered the Celine tight sleevs dress, Loeve hairy shoes, Dolce & Gabbana mosaic dress, Givenchy printed sweater and Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane grunge look. In other words, the highlights of AW13. But still, my favourite was Anya Ziourova in Celine. She looked so amazing in it! And the Marcelo Burlon t-shirt couple looks like fun… MFW, it’s your last day!
Munich is a great place for visiting, not only because of the great museums and monuments, but also for superb shopping! Today I will show you my three favourite places up here! And, if you want to see what is in stores, just see the labels on my Pages footside!
POOL Munich is the biggest hotspot for fashionistas… But, sorry to say, but it’s not as good as in past. Now they invest cheaper luxury labels like, everything is very teen and just “hot right now”. But, still I like it! Nowhere else I would buy a Marcelo Burlon new collection T-shirt! The interior is cool, artistic and minimalistic. So, it’s a good place for shopping, if you want to catch up with today’s trend, and on the next day… Forget it.
Marcelo Burlon’s SS14 printed t-shirts collection have just been launched few days ago. Marcelo did a really good job as always. These pieces have some of the most realistic prints I have ever seen! The classical Burlon’s snakes in brown colour, foxes and medusas are seen here, with a big dose of colour that may speak of the toxicness of the animals shown on the prints! “Here’s a family portrait to introduce myself on this new adventure. The photo portrays a group of friends, shot by photographer Laurence Ellis for the new Spring 2014 collection of my label, County of Milan, which represents my vision as a creative director. My inspiration comes from all my past experiences with PR and deejay gigs all over the world, mingling with the next generation of youth and diving into different subcultures. The graphics display symbols from the Tehuelches and Mapuches, the natives of my land, Patagonia, mixed with club and rave culture.” Marcelo told Style.com.The Royal Baby arrived, and now whole United Kingdom is crazy about it! Wish Kate the baby to live happily after all… But, not only England is nuts about the Royal Baby. Fashion is also all in it. Like for example Dior, Chanel and DsQuared! I truly loved the Royal Dummy by Karl Lagerfeld! The Dior sketches seemed to be too serious, but oppositely DsQuared went too cool… Queen Elisabeth won’t let her grandson to wear God Save the Queen t-shirt!Tom Dixon is a famous furniture designer from UK, that did really big things. For example one of these cubic lamps I love insanely… And, now as all senior masters, he did something that was pretty predictable. He went onto the Beauty & Fragrance side and designs three different perfumed candles. Don’t have a idea how do they smell, but look really stylish and modern! “A collection of three scented candles created to capture the essence of the travelling, trading and nostalgic past with the vibrant future of British life. The candle is encased in a nickel vessel and topped with a solid morwad marble lid.” Availble on Colette.fr!I am always excited about Balenciaga jewellery. Even if Ghesquiere is out, the jewellery that Alexander Wang designs for the French house is as good as the past one. At the Resort 2014, that was a big fail, beautiful gold bracelet was seen. The semi circle elements were connected with small spheres that gave the item a specific mechanism (very fexible) and touch. Looks real good, and may be even hotter that last Summer season’s gold rings!Prada is doing big changes in it’s oldest boutique in Milan. The beautiful, traditionally decorated store of Prada in Vittorio Emanuelle Gallery is having a big makeover. The first floor will be untouched, but Miuccia Prada plans to do a conference/press/restaurant chamber, Prada art museum and something that will be used for relax. It all smells with modernity, and will we soon all see something crazy that is done from under Miuccia hands? Hopefully because it’s always amazing!Still in Italy, I am recently inspired with the Italian luxury chic that was pleasant at Dolce & Gabbana and Robero Cavalli. It’s all about detail. And D&G was really beautuful (comparing to the Dolce boys financial situation). Inspired with antic mosaics from Italian cathedrals, the dresses and bags looked like if they were cut out from one of the walls of a Sicilian holy place! Gucci was all about gold embroidments, and Roberto Cavalli was as precious as an ancient statue. The last two pictures are created by me! The first shows Dolce&Gabbana, the seconf, from up left to bottom right: Gucci, Antonio Marras, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci!
