RED Valentino Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Fashion

Inspired by Kurt Cobain, the REDValentino fall/winter 2015-2016 collection brought a romantic and dreamy atmosphere to the first day of New York Fashion Week fall 2015 with its princess-worthy dresses, cute patterns and enchanting retro style imprinted on every single design available in the lineup. As always, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have managed to take us to the imaginary world of fairy-tales with their talent of injecting so much innocence and whimsical allure to their one-of-a-kind creations. The big diversity of styles, colors and the mind-blowing tiny details that add to the cuteness overload are some of the aspects of the new RED Valentino line that will instantly have you infatuated with these pieces!

RED Valentino Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection - New York Fashion Week

Fall is extremely spring-y and colorful for the RED Valentino girls this year, as instead of opting for chunky knits and subdued colors, she gives preference to flirty little dresses and bright floral prints. Exactly this way debuts the collection bringing an entire garden of pretty flowers appearing on a black background mostly. To break the summer overdose, the designers have teamed floral printed dresses with grunge-style plaid shirts, coming in grass green and black, or red and black tones. Although at first sight this may seem a dangerous combination for you, it does lead to unique and fresh looks, where contrast is the main focus. Whether it’s a floral printed maxi dress or a combo of a see-through black shirt and a mini skirt, topping the look with a plaid shirt you’ll instantly inject a unique vibe and youthfulness to your looks.

Checkered prints start to make an appearance more occasionally as the collection develops and we get introduced to such lovely looks as the combo of a green checkered skirt worn with a lovely short cape-coat featuring the same colors and the same material, which is topping a plaid green-and-black shirt with a lovely bow detail on the neck. There are also monochrome checkered looks using black and white colors, from shirts with bow details on the part of the neck to mini dresses, skirts and even coats with faux fur collars.

Although a big part of the RED Valentino fall/winter 2015-2016 collection is dedicated to floral and checkered prints and bright colors, there are also more monochromatic looks for those, who are more into a simplistic style. Think simple black flared mini skirts worn with black-and-white striped shirts, a sleeveless black jumpsuit, a tweed skirt suit, and an office-ready gray suit featuring a pair of trendy culottes. The unique retro silhouettes used only enhance the dolly look of these outfits.

Further, we are treated to an array of mind-blowing party and cocktail dresses featuring lovely muted colors and unexpected circus prints (think clowns and acrobats), embroidery and appliqués, which also adorn the outerwear pieces topping the looks. So forget about the traditional plaid, leopard and floral patterns (which still look uber-imaginative in the collection) and go for statement-making circus themes to stand out in the crowd.

Other big trends present throughout the collection are the mohair cardigans, the Mongolian lambskin little coats and vests, the fur jackets and Seventies style jeans. The retro-style handbags available in different shapes, shades and sizes and the platform suede heels are must-have accessories to complete these absolutely bedazzling clothing pieces. Agree picking just one or two pieces from this marvelous collection is going to be a really hard task!

Creatures of the Wind Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Fashion

Creatures of the Wind. It’s such an intriguing name, coming from intriguing beginnings. The inspiration for the name of the fashion brand founded in 2007 by Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters was essentially an 1957 recording by Johnny Mathis that was entitled “Wild is the Wind” and included the brand’s name in its lyrics. It officially launched into the fashion market with a formal spring/summer 2011 collection and has appeared on fashion shows since then. The brand is driven by a simple concept and narrative, that which takes its inspiration from subversive subcultures and mythological themes, focuses on the youth and translates it all into garments that you would be a fool to miss out on. According to the founders, the Creatures of the Wind fall/winter 2015-2016 collection showcased today on the New York Fashion Weekrunway shows off “definitive moments of American culture as viewed through a psychedelic lens.”

Creatures of the Wind Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection - New York Fashion Week

Indeed, such beautiful creatures graced the catwalk with the Creatures of the Wind show, presenting the loveliest garments yet seen today, especially in the form of tailored pantsuits. The metallic with black in semi-feline patterns, the sheet tops and abstract floral prints, the fur coats and star studded scarves; everything caught our attention on the runway. Wide brimmed hats reminded us of the olden days in the European world, while the pin stripes gave us interesting ideas about the looks and the flared sleeves brought olden day nobles to mind. We have fur and we have tweed, as have midi skirts and trousers galore. Cropped pant suits and blue infused tartan designs appear en masse. Black and white outfits put together to create awesome pieces also appear on the runway, while the midi skirts also give way to mini dresses.

The shoes that appear in the Creatures of the Wind fall/winter 2015-2016 collection include shiny black latex in half boots and their white with black accent variations. It includes shiny black loaders and laced brown alternatives to the same design. Stretch based grey-teal shoes also appear, along with some fabric versions, while the toes are shows in suede camel hued ankle strapped platforms. These also come in mahogany and black. The V-stretch designs also come in white, while the black and white half boots change into camel with black accents. Out of all the shows staged till now and that are yet to appear, Creatures of the Wind seems to have the biggest collection of shoes within this line-up.

Of the whole, two district pieces are worth a special mention: the metallic silver with black almost animal print style dress catches the eye, especially since it appears to be so out of place among the rest of the trousers and the skirts at midi or mini hem levels. It’s got a high neckline, a black crop tank chest and moves straight into the metallic and black print with a black belt wrapped around the waist. It is exceptionally beautiful and world wonderfully as eveningwear for the more conservative but style-savvy individual. The second piece that appears entirely out of place is the sheer blouse in black that shows off all that is and isn’t there underneath. This includes a nipple tease in a crafty manner. The metallic with black also makes an appearance along the lower edge of the blouse, while the legs are clad in together straight trousers and the shiny black boots that keep appearing among the line-up. All in all, this is a fantastic collection that is worth taking a second look at.

Intimissimi Lingerie Spring 2015 Campaign

Fashion

Israeli fashion model Shiloh Malka is the face of the Intimissimi lingerie spring 2015 campaign. Born to a Morrocan Jewish family, the gorgeous woman has appeared in major international campaigns, including that for Ralph Lauren, L’Oreal, Toshiba, Deep Sea Cosmetics and so much more. She is also a corporal in the Israeli Defense Force, enjoying the double jobs she holds well enough. Malka’s killer looks go very well with the pretty lace, sheer pieces, and sexy garters. The whole of the Intimissimi spring 2015 collection is soft, sexy, chic and sophisticated, all in one.

Intimissimi Lingerie Spring 2015 Campaign

Italian Lingerie brand Intimissimi, part of the successful Caldezonia S.p.A. Group, has a global franchise of some of the loveliest pieces of lingerie available in Europe. It focuses on stylish designs, comfort and the world of emotions that are conjured by seeing and wearing each piece. Created in 1996, it has since become a leader in lingerie design, keeping things simple and refined, without an excessive or aggressive undertone. Intimissimi begets romance and inspires the imagination, which in itself, along with the high-quality of its items, has won loyal customers to the brand world round. This is the lingerie brand, which suits the modern woman well, keeping to the latest tastes and trends in the fashion industry.

The lace shirts are enough to get the blood pumping and the imagination brewing. A lace shirt that grazes the tops of the thighs, capitalizes on the floral trends this season and allows for a more demure or even wildly sexy look, depending on how many of the buttons you do up certainly catches one’s attention fully. Underneath you have the matching nude bra and panty set, complete with the white lace trimmings that have the whole of the outfit blending in together and enticing the senses fully.

The Deep V frontal clasp triangle bra in black lace and pretty trimmings in the same black color looks amazing on the model and would look just as perfect on any one of us. It shows off just a but of cleavage, then allows for sheer lace to show off most of the inner sides of the breasts, before using embroidered black lace to cover up the nipples and the rest of the bust. It is a very comfortable design that allows for a seamless movement between garment and skin, without pulling in at any point. A frontal clasp on the garter with its double bands makes it easier to wear and even easier to dispose of when necessary. The triangular lace of the garters is just lovely and the matching panties underneath add to the mystery the whole of the outfit holds.

Those lace garters look equally as amazing in white, with the strapless bra replacing the triangular one of the black lace and the panties made into a thong with a thicker siding for added comfort on the hip area. The thigh-high stockings are lovely in either color, though it may even work to be replaced with stay-up stockings, removing the need for the garters themselves and focusing instead on the bra and panty sets.

Emily DiDonato for SuiteBlanco Spring/Summer 2015 Campaign

Fashion

The SuiteBlanco spring/summer 2015 campaign features American model Emily DiDonato as its new face, just as she also manages to sizzle in the new Calzedonia campaign released but a few days ago. She’s even taken on the world of beauty with a feature in Vogue Paris! When it comes to SuiteBlanco, she looks positively stunning with her brunette hair pulled back in a strict manner and her piercing blue eyes smiling at the camera warmly. The SuiteBlanco spring/summer 2015 line is inspired by a safari theme, with casual khakis and army greens a staple among the collection, while simple white t-shirts ensures a timeless property is kept along the way.

Emily DiDonato for SuiteBlanco Spring/Summer 2015 Campaign

We love seeing the new SuiteBlanco in the fashion world and certainly look forward to each and every season’s campaign. The Spanish company specializing in the designs, production, distribution and marketing all about a modern woman’s garments and accessories, knows how to make dreams come true, at least in terms of serving the female populace with spectacular new designs that will bewilder and amuse her to no end. Innovation is in constant demand and SuiteBlanco caters to its customers well. The focus is on maximum trending styles with the minimum amount of money spent for quality production. The SuiteBlanco designs bring out the free spirit in a woman, allowing her to feel as if she is embarking on a dream journey, with each outfit giving her the peace that only quality attained at fair pricing could achieve. With stores in 23 different countries, this is one brand label that finds a lot of love the world over.

Since spring still requires the use of light coats or jackets, it does well to mention the gorgeous belted piece with the large lapels dipping down to the navel and its shorter hem, while also stressing the fact that it is probably one of the best spring jackets seen across all the ready-to-wear fashion lines yet. It has a soft creamy coloring, looks amazing for something to wear on a safari trip wherein there is no threat of getting it dirty and pairs amazingly well with white shorts and a lacy white top.

A simple army green shirtdress looks pretty comfortable from where we are standing! The double breasted soft shirt with the rolled up sleeve and the buttons down to the navel reminds us of something a woman would be wearing after a night spent in the army camp, but then again, that certainly adds to the whole of the sex appeal. Add the fact that you can keep the buttons undone to right past the bust area and you officially find yourself trendy with all the rest of them. The plunging necklines are a big hit these days! Add a pretty little suede handbag, throw on a golden bangle around the wrist and pull your hair back into a strict bun; now you are certainly ready to face the world.

If you are looking for a more evening style dress from the latest SuiteBlanco spring 2015 line, then there is one particular white number that would suit you well. The V-neck slip design of that simple dress looks heavenly, while the mini hem certainly lends to it a sexier feel. Add gold cuffs to the whole of the look and it is one chic and sophisticated dress that you will be hard-pressed to find a replacement for.

La Perla Atelier Couture Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Fashion

It’s rare to see lingerie and sportswear in the same collection, but it appears that the Bolognese luxury lingerie brand known as La Perla to the world is doing just that with the newest La Perla Atelier Couture spring/summer 2015 collection. The 1954 creation of Italian corset-maker Ada Masotti, the brand has certainly expanded over the years to include nightwear, beachwear, women’s clothing, accessories and perfume. Imagine those first pieces by Masotti transported in small velvet-lined suitcases, creating the aura of a luxurious purchase with its presentation alone. Well known for its innovative launch of the “Brassiere-Bretelle” design that was worn by Rebecca Romjin in Femme Fatale, a new era of fashion has been entered by La Perla and we are definitely enjoying the label’s place in the haute couture world.

La Perla Atelier Couture Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

The whole of the La Perla Atelier Couture spring/summer 2015 collection show included unprecedented event after event, from the marrying of lingerie and sportswear to the closing of the show with Naomi Campbell. Creative director Emilio Rinaldi has definitely had the fashion world buzzing, with his designs boding well for the company as it moves on after celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2014. We’re seeing hooded silk satin robes and basketball shorts with lacing and gold threading. We’ve got bodysuits and bras with suspenders worn over ribbed silk t-shirts. Stockings feature crystals while feathers and embroidery play a key role in the line, with transparent fabrics quite prominent across the board. The La Perla Atelier collection is expected to become an annual staple in Paris from now on!

There is something entirely too enticing about some of these looks as we enjoy lingerie pieces stacked over sheer versions. The transparency of the long sleeved crop top underneath the sexy triangle bra with an under-bust band in a criss-crossed design and the sheer version of a high waist white satin trimmed panty shaping underneath the bra’s batching thong are definitely impressive.

It’s rather intriguing to present yourself as a boxing champion of a sexy attired bride on your wedding night, but the sheer jumpsuit speaks volumes to this end. There’s something rather Arabian style about the puffing of the sheer legs of those pants with the boxer short style look underneath, while the top of the ensemble appears as sexy as can be with white beading and embroidery over sheer long sleeved crop top. Needless to say, the look is breathtaking.

Combine red lacing and embroidery with a matching red bustier, complete with garters and thigh-high stockings that are cut off at the ankles and give way to strappy studded gold and silver platform heels. The waist is cinched with a belt, while the red certainly does much to recommend itself as one of the loveliest colors to have your lingerie made in.

Styled as a boxer’s robe meet royal wardrobe, the incredibly stunning satin nightgown has one left panting in its wake. It is one of the most incredible La Perla pieces yet, with golden threading in embroidery along the hood and body hugging material, this number appears to be one only a goddess could have spun for herself. Of course, you can enjoy feeling like the heavenly apparition you are, a lady of the night or princess of the bright full moon.

Chanel Couture Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Fashion

Unveiling his Chanel Couture spring/summer 2015 collection, Karl Lagerfeld once again managed to make the audience swoon with the drop-dead gorgeous designs showcased and the beautiful backdrop created. It’s a collection where traditional Chanel staples collide with modern elements and shapes, which turns each and every piece presented into a real work of art that we want to own so much!

Chanel Couture Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Chanel, the brainchild of the illustrious Coco Chanel, is one French fashion house that’s hard to compete with. Specializing in haute couture and ready-to-wear designs, alongside luxury goods and fashion accessories, the brand boasts a whopping 6+ billion EUR revenue and has become the personification of many an actress and model, including Vanessa Paradis, Nicole Kidman, Keira Knightley and Marilyn Monroe! It’s no wonder that we are currently watching the fashion show take place with bright anticipation shining in our eyes. We are all in love with the amazing Chanel, with its signature little black dress, the Chanel No 5 perfume and those impeccably stylish suits.

Of course, the first pieces of the Chanel Couture spring/summer 2015 collection are suits, gorgeous orange, cobalt blue and sunflower yellow hues that really embody the spring season. The whole of the catwalk is made to look like a blooming wonderland, transitioning from the winter into the warmer weathers of spring. The shorter midi skirts are a bold move to recreate the typical Chanel suit it has been known for, while the tweed fabric is still as much a statement for the brand as always. The whole of the series tends to focus on either suits with matching woollen bottoms or suit jackets paired with wide A-lined skirts. The trends tend to keep the hemline at a midi level, either above or below the knee, while a few pieces do tend to reach the floor. No dress or suit is seen with a mini hem. We do see some fringe appear, while many of the ensembles feature bared midriffs. We do see some see through material, as well as a lot of Chanel’s signature tweed line. The colors generally seem to range in the realm of cream, white and black, while blue, yellow, orange, pink, green and red do pop their heads. Primary colors seem to be the thing here for the most part, while keeping to a rather interesting mindset of seeing winter transition into spring. There’s very little summer apparent in the collection, overall.

It might do well to mention the boots and the headwear showcased throughout the Chanel Couture spring/summer 2015 collection show as well. There’s something rather masculine about the way the models’ feet are clad in low heeled leather half boots that have neither embellishment nor feminine appeal. They are utilitarian and somehow speak about comfort over impressive style. While the footwear remains non-attractive, the amazing array of hats certainly catches the attention and holds on tight. Those wide brimmed straw hats with their tulle weaving giving it a chic appeal certainly go well with those amazing suits, while knit headwear also becomes a focus, what with the half veils semi-hiding the eyes and nose from view. We can clearly see that each piece placed on the head is meant to balance out the strength in the red on the lips that’s so very captivating and adds sensuality to the more European based designs. Mesh veils cover the eyes of most models as they appear on stage to present latest in trendsetting looks. Feathers, flowers, fuzzy spikes and all form of embellishments adorn the hats we see while the tulles used on so many come in black, white, and purple hues.

The Chanel Couture spring/summer 2015 collection show has definitely been one fun event to watch and the designs are sure to be seen on the red carpet soon enough!
