Mach and Mach

So besides New York, Paris, London and Milan Fashion Week there are actually so many other fashion weeks including Russia and there was one show in particular that really caught my eye and that is Mach and Mach.

This collection is for the fearless for sure, now please don’t forget what I am always saying try not to focus on the wildness of it all zoom in on the pieces because they are exactly what you long for in your wardrobe. 

 
This collection is for the empowered woman who fears nothing and has no boundaries or limits and it shows in all that she does or wears in this case.

If this duo keeps this momentum up with their designs this is a label who we will see at the bigger fashion weeks!

Chloe Fall 2017

Chloe is definitely the fashion house that feeds my thirst for 60’s style that has been pulled into the future. I adore Chloe as they always produce the most beautiful, feminine and youthful pieces that are just a tad more opulent than any other girl at the party!

This collection has reinforced I love of babydoll dresses but reinventing them is so many ways that we forget it is the same silhouette, and I don’t mean for that to sound like a back handed complement. The use of embroidery and chiffon gives us the finish that could only dress of in the 60’s. 

With the zibe firmly set all accessories are true to form with the black heeled brogues to the new “must have” bag of the season, I found this a very pleasant collection.

The Oscars 2017

What an interesting night, from Emma Stone winning Best Actress to the LaLa Land being called out for best picture maybe the fashion was reflecting the night.
When we saw this years stars take to the Red Carpet for the globes the lack of imagination or gold lace was every where, now fast forward to the Oscars and we saw a lot more originality. 

I will start by adding Jessica Biel, I adored her in this Kaufman Franco gown but it’s the Tiffany & co necklace that really made the look come together .


And of course we must give a nod to the winner of the Best actress Emma Stone in this 1920’s flapper style gown.


And keeping on that theme Olivia Cupla killed it in this Marchesa gown.

The girl who stole the night for me both at the Oscars and at the Vanity Fair party was Emma Roberts and as for that firey red hair she looked every inch the Hollywood Star and to that is what the Oscars are about.

When it comes to award season there is always one lady who stands out and nails it every time and I really thought it was going to be Michelle Williams but I wasn’t overly wowed by here although her and Bizzy Philips were the most adorable pair over this award season.

Now back to my point of the overall Award season best dressed has to go to Taraji P Henson!! I thought she oozed glamour and was spot on every time and her Oscar look in this navy velvet Alberta Ferretti gown … just wow!

Some of the gowns were on the sexy side for the Oscars .. Jennifer I’m looking at you ☺️

And speaking of unusual Oscar looks, I loved this Calvin Klein gown Naomi Harris wore and those shoes 😍. She then slipped into a Grecian style gown for the Vanity fair party.

And of course the Vanity Fair party was where the real fashion came alive such stars as Kate Hudson really earned their fashion stripes last night. 



There was one lady that I was really impressed with and that was Lily Collins, I really feel that sometimes she’s made look older than she is by some of the choices she has gone with in the past but this look is fun, sexy and very polished and big thumbs up for me.

Until next year folks πŸ₯‚

Fendi Fall ’17

With over 50 years with Fendi Karl Lagerfeld has really found something special in his union with the granddaughter of the founders and creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi.

We can safely say the colour of fall if red and what shade of red? Well pretty much whatever ever shade and in any form (and yes I am making reference to those insane thigh high boots).

And a little left field was the cobalt blue with the red boots “oh hello 70’s”!!


The common denominator we have seen from almost all designers for fall is “sheer” with a twist.


And a sigh of relief when I see the touch of faux fur because we all know I need to wear every season regardless of the temperature πŸ˜‚.
I’ll say it again, Milan Fashion Week is really impressing me this season.

Gucci Fall ’17

And this Ladies and Gentlemen is how you open Milan Fashion Week, with a whooping 105 looks a chose just some of my favourite looks as I think you would be overwhelmed with all 105 images.

Gucci has had an overhaul thanks to Alessandro Michele, and his new collection is as eccentric as I expected.

Not only has he created an extravagant, whimsical collection for women but he showcased his menswear at the same time and yet somehow it flowed so naturally.

I really am enjoying the rebirth of Gucci, although the collection may seem overwhelming if we look close at the pieces they will most certainly be some of  the most coveted items of the season.

Alessandro Michele reminds us how fashion is a fantasy and everyday we can be a new character πŸ’•

Katy Perry shoe collection

Katy Perry decided that she wanted to be more than a singer and thought she might try her hand at designing shoes. This seems to be an ongoing trend with celebrities that doesn’t normally signify the start of a life long career and Katy’s collection is no different. This was not an overnight whim in fact Katy have been working on this for a couple of years so we can expect that she thought everything through.


Katy has always been know for her kooky style and her collection is just that. With cigar heels and bunny tails this collection will be easily recognised. In an interview Katy said “You are what you wear, right? It’s one of those things where I really love the line and I’m excited by it.” Although she did say that you will still see her walking around in Ugg’s.

With a vast array of styles to choose from her fans will be spoils for choice.

Katy wanted some way of connecting with her fans and when interviewed Katy said β€œHere’s the thing, when I’m working or promoting music, or onstage, I don’t get the opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation or meet everybody individually, so the way I present myself can set the tone. It could be a conversation opener, just by my shoes or by the way I wear my nails β€” it could be my form of hello.”

Victoria Beckham AW ’17

It was a pleasure to watch the next step in the evaluation of this label. The matured tailoring and sophisticated lines made this one of her best collections.

This collection is redefining the signature pieces for this winter with a masculine oversized overhaul but with the feminine well placed touches whether it be the sheer blouses and cut out panels.

Her use of colour in this collection is sublime and executed very well.

This was Victoria strongest accessories collection, this to is part of the evaluation. I’ve always been a huge fan of the long leather glove so I can’t wait to wear them this winter especially pairing them an oversized woolly jumper. Of course we have the statement bag that we see the models carrying at their hips, which has become trademark way for the label. I haven’t forgotten the footwear namely the boots, there is definitely a 70’s vibe from these round toe slouchy boots which always go incredible with hemlines that hit your shin. 

We can all rest easy this winter knowing that everything is oversized with plenary of layering.

All in all a very strong collection.

Chanel Haute Couture ’17

Paris was alive this morning as the ultimate couture label show cased their latest collection. Chanel is Couture when it is not even trying, so it comes as no surprise when Karl puts together this dreamy collection of ostrich feather, belts and sequins who knew such a combination would be so in sync. 

With major side partings and simple makeup this was a real nod to the 20’s.


It was all kinds of fresh and crisp with the bright mirrored back drop that only enhances the collection which is always so meticulously thought out that the surroundings themselves are a how in itself.


And what would a Chanel show be without the classic Chanel tweed suit this will and can be remade time and time again and we would still be in love with it.



Of course the grand finale is what everyone talks about because Karl appears out to greet his Muse of the moment and it is lovely to see that his old Muse Vanessa Paradis daughter has now taken over that title Lily Rose Depp. 
He took great pride in parading the young beauty around in the extravagant pink gown.

SS ’17 Trend report (pt 2)

Pink to make the boys wink πŸ˜‰ 
Yes that’s correct pink is not going anywhere ladies and I must admit I’m exactly a huge pink lover but I think this colour does suit a lot of complexions as there is a wide array of tones to choose from.




Now don’t panic if pink is not your thing you can always add a splash of pink through an accessory or even a simple tee πŸ‘ŒπŸ½


Tune in next Friday for another Sring Summer Trend.
