Long Skirt + White T-Shirt = Good Mix

In town, the long skirt is not easy to master.

Wanted: a Pleated Skirt Twelve O’clock Lamé

The Myth of the “Real Woman”

After long sought to break away, it seems that the fashion world is increasingly fascinated by the concept of “reality”, especially by that of the “real woman.” A new obsession that gives rise to initiatives that may have what to leave perplexed…

The context

The omnipresence in the landscape mode (+ magazine advertising campaigns) young and very thin models raises increasing tensions. Accused of encouraging anorexia, complex the “normal” women and promote physical “unreal”, women’s magazines and fashion brands provoke the ire of readers, and more broadly of consumers. And when they try to adapt by delivering a handful of “round special” editions, “black issue” and other special issues dedicated to some type of physical, it happens regularly that the models are still considered too smooth, too perfect or not quite round. This suggests that the problem is here more related to the status of “professional model” of women posing in magazines and their type of morphology / physics.
A message apparently received 5 out of 5 by some magazines and fashion houses. Titled “The Real Issue (a model-free zone)”, Vogue UK November and does pose only “real” women in his number. For its part, the Italian label Dolce & Gabbana multiplies incursions “in the real life”, between pictures of “real” workers posted on her Instagram account and campaign shot in the streets of Naples in the middle of onlookers… (more…)

Wanted: a Pair of Boots Python Effect

If this is still not the season that the leopard will lose its status as trendy animal print, python pattern could still make him shade. Well executed, print “Kaa” has indeed cause panic all those wishing twister their looks…

When, in 2011, Miuccia Prada decided to fit its model Mary Jane boots in python, few are following suit: too conceptual and adorned with artificial colors, those boots do not inspire strong trend. It will thus wait for spring / summer 2015 – and particularly the Gucci fashion show – to see the python to rise to the heavens print “must have”.

Decline in natural colors (or wise) and dressing of most shoe models of rather classical times, it then quickly slap in the eye of fast fashion, which will hasten to offer fashionistas an alternative to the sublime – but overpriced – boots Gucci and Gianvito Rossi. (more…)

Scarves, the Dress Code 2015/2016

Forgotten spirit Balenciaga keffiyeh scarves Max 2007 and brought forward the point: this season, the time is more than ever in bandanas and long, narrow strips of silk. The question is how to wear them only to look or a cowgirl jet laguée nor an addict seventies trend…

The bandana

Having been ubiquitous this summer, the expensive scarf Axl Rose continues this fall to the accessories in the air. This will wear as a necklace or braiding it to another scarf or by tying the low on the tips (in both cases it will be wise to associate with a chain crew neck and / or with a jumper, so as to bypass the first level of that dimension bandana).
Tied on the side and associated with an oversize sweater, it will create with it an interesting contrast, while attaché very near the neck and knotted at the front, black bandana – which is accompanied by a thin gold necklace – offer a cheeky twist ultra necked evening toilets.   (more…)

The Silhouettes of the Fall / Winter 2016-2017

Between insolent desire for comfort, military loans, cozy look and stylistic letting go, the woman’s fall / winter 2016-2017 confirms certain trends and initiates other …

Oversize cocoon

If the woman podiums seems to have made a habit in recent seasons to curl up in oversized coats, love of XXL volumes cannibalize this time literally his wardrobe. Has she decided to succumb to this groundswell advocating a return to modesty, she unconsciously wishes to protect the climate of insecurity gangrening planet or she considers just the garment has aujourd ‘hui more interest to question the volumes that fit the curves of the female body? Still, for the fall / winter 2016-2017, Marc Jacobs thinks him an inordinate cloakroom (see here), thanGucci and Dolce & Gabbana coats will play the encompassing that Chloeand Isabel Marant offer too large sweater dresses and Stella McCartney declined his delicate aesthetic and sportswear oversize mode (see here, here and here ).

Tell Me What Bag You Carry, I Will Tell You Who You Are

Conceptual, or regressive neo-elegant, some bags of the fall/winter 2016-2017 have given me want to try to imagine the contours of those to whom their creators intend them…

Bag “Pills” Moschino

Acupuncture in intensive TRX course, through cupping, the services of the British coach Russell Bateman and whatnot other expensive (and not always effective), she tried everything to feel better in body and in his life.She even tried to freeze part of his body fat to get rid of complexes she thought was the cause of her chronic gloom. But nothing: without his daily dose Prozac, impossible for her to turn her cheekbones, operate the Vitamix, not to go hibernate under the comforters of his son after the latter submitted to the school or to strap heels of 12 to go to make his editor’s paper on the latest film by Natalie Portman. Under the disapproving looks – and a bit condescending – around her, she is resigned to swallow studiously his little pills in order to successfully float. Suffice to say that when Jeremy Scott decided to play down the subject by imagining a mini line of bags dedicated to anti-neurosis drugs, hard for her to resist. Since it takes with a smile his bag “Pills” and emptied the kitty “journey” of the family to buy the entire capsule collection dedicated to chemical molecules of happiness (see here) . It would not be falling out of stock… (more…)

Eja and Feiyue

It is more convenient to walk the streets of Paris pavement tennis as trendy shoes Marc Jacobs Marni or boots with high heels perched… Yes, but she will be the courts in harmony with our flawless look?

After the 2006 fair buzz with tennis, “Veja”… But if you remember: it was sport as it should, urban as we like, and its small look, in the spirit of a vintage years 1970 was faultless.

One found in all the trendy concept stores in the capital … But now, the mode changes and these little wonders are Brazilian upstaged by their Asian peers! Let it be said the new basketball trend is now “The Feiyue”. This brand (often reads “Feivue”) is the brand well known among Chinese martial artists.

The Lacing of Sexy to Casual

More familiar with healthy Chantal Thomass as ready-to-wear shops, the concept of lacing abandons this season his sexy trappings in favor of a more gentle nature, oscillating between modernity and “casualness”…

In fashion, some recipes have the knack to work almost every time. One thinks in particular made to extract a detail of its original context and treat it on a tone being foreign to him, to give him a new nature. In recent years, we saw the veil and grafted to a cap (abandoning its retro DNA in favor of a casual chic style) and the leopard print leaving his glamor-obsolete-vulgar finery for a more urban nature (Charlotte Olympia).

In recent seasons, it was the turn of lacing – familiar from the world of corsetry – attempting to change its DNA. A mutation driven by Raf Simons who, during the parade Christian Dior Fall / Winter 2014-2015, slightly cintra its frock coats and via some colorful lacing at the sides for a striking effect of modernity. Under his fingers, lace loses sensuality via electro colors, while the clothing appears as a subtle fusion of tailoring and femininity.

It was not more to start the trend: the following season, designers took over the concept to the decline in their collections. Victoria Beckham and chooses to divert the principle of lacing “lingerie” in combining the cozy knit fashion (his long ribbed sweater laced on the side by a wide knit lace was also one of the most successful parts of the casuals season).

By oversizing laces grosgrain and marrying them to the way jeans jacket, Frida Giannini conjugua to share the idea seventies fashion (and gave birth to transition to one of the most photographed pieces in the fashion series season). For his part, Phillip Lim conferred lacing ultra contemporary dimension by treating it as an elegant scar plying along a small casual dress.

Finally, others – such as Nicolas Gesquière or Riccardo Tisci – were unable to convert the try: too thin, too delicate and associated with very feminine pieces, their lacing not broke enough codes to actually appear relevant.

In practice, those who want to indulge in this new trend should be careful not flatter the original nature of corsetry lacing. Forgotten translucent material and lewd lacing: the 2015 lacing comes in cozy fashion, sportswear, funky or conceptual, and especially not in sexy mode. And if the lacing suggests the skin, it must be done with subtlety, as in 3.1 Phillip Lim and Isabel Marant…

Wanted: a Sailor a Loose Strand

Reach both by Gabrielle Chanel, Jean Seberg, Brigitte Bardot or Charlotte Gainsbourg, the sailor was able to cross the decades without ever losing any of its “style appeal.” To the point of today to figure prominently among the fetishes parts of fashionistas…

Also classic is the sailor, however, difficult to find a model respecting the letter of the currently fashionable criteria, ie not too stiff, not too thick, a little loose and wearing sleeves too short. And if marinières found among gender specialists are usually very good, often they lack that little twist likely to infuse the right amount of nonchalance to their functional look.  (more…)

Zara Dress Code Autumn / Winter 2015-2016

More pragmatic than the previews looks on the outskirts of the recent fashion weeks, those proposed in the last lookbooks of the brand Zara appear rich in stylistic gimmicks easygoing and kissed the air time…

This autumn / winter, we will think thus:

Soften male DNA of our leather moccasins by slipping a pair of socks satin (see here).

Associate plaid overcoat princes of Wales and floral print tapestry mind (see here), so as to create an interesting telescoping of British tailoring and a romantic kitsch. This will obviously replace the coat with a blazer and dress with a blouse. (more…)

Fall-Winter 2007-2008 Fashion Shows in Paris

Well, the week of Parisian catwalks ended… So maybe it’s because this is the end of more than a month and a half podiums and looks in all genres, but there is a bit overdose, especially as the biggest disappointed me…

Chanel and her improbable foot associations hens / scratches ask me about the consistency of his collection… it was said ready-to-wear, right? Alexander Mcqueen him mix his designs for the least inventive and unconventional much more commercial parts that confuse and who questions the integrity of the concept of the designer.

Viktor and Rolf, as usual make the big show, the problem is that they seem trapped in their own need to do more spectacular, wackiest and sometimes lose the thread… (more…)

The Dish According Miroslava Duma

If it seemed to be that the dish thronged the smallest of us and to embrace the trends of the time these were condemned to wear heels, it was not counting on Miroslava Duma, whose recent stylistic demonstrations tend to prove otherwise …

Keen to dizzying skid shoes allowing it to increase its mignonnets 150 cm, the creator of the online magazine Buro 24/7 – and incidentally “it” girl Russian darling of the fashion world – has recently been unfaithful to her perched high heels , without ever losing in appearance or style.  (more…)
