After adopting an exaggerated theme and décor in so many shows, Karl Lagerfeld kept it calm. . There was neither immersive set nor overt theme. In fact, it was a mirrored circular runway inspired by the famed Art Deco mirrors of Coco Chanel’s stairs at her atelier on the Rue Cambon. (more…)
How does it feel when your favorite designer presents a collection as a tribute to your country? For those of you who don’t know, I am originally from Egypt. While I was watching the show ( live on Instagram lol), I got goosebumps, literally: These dresses inspired by Egyptian actresses in the 50’s era and Oum Khoulthoum’s song in the background left me speechless. You know why? (more…)
When we think of Balmain, the first things that come in our minds is definitely the image of a sexy, modern & confident women. Balmain show has become such a magnet for fans and paparazzi. Olivier Rousteing has developed a strong identity, yet one too rooted in retro, not unusual for a still-young designer. Each show, Rousteing blows out our minds with his aesthetic creations. “For SS16 collection, no inspiration, just a way to celebrate my five years at Balmain” Olivier said backstage. As always, super sexy was the dominant trait in the whole collection. And I have to admit that Oliver always discovers new elegant ways to show skin and to do sexy: Incredible. Rousteing toned down the color this season and focused on nudes, green, purple, white & black. (more…)
Chloé girl can now stand her ground among those other creations.Yes, admittedly she is a bit hippy and she does have lovely hair center parted. The first look was a floor-sweeping, tailored greatcoat in military wool, with a narrow, peaked shoulder and structured just so tailored wool trousers; and a more feminine blouse. This rigorous masculine precision persisted in the tailoring throughout the collection. It balanced out all the flou and made the Chloé girl much more desirable Something that is sometimes missing under all the layers of muslin and flirtatious girlishness at the label. I also loved these original capes specially the fringed one!!.
Paris fashion week is over which means it’s time for a review. I found out that it’s really tiring to join all the reviews in one post and plus my readers get bored reading the post. That’s why I decided to post each one to two reviews. The first review is about Barbara Bui.Personally, I love Barbara bui and this collection was marvelous. From the leather details to the fur jacket, the studded capes to the asymmetrical skirts, Bui presented a collection with a shot of rock and roll. It was mostly dark – navy and black mixed with brown and sky blue.
