We Enter a Tribal Galaxy at Alexander McQueen Spring 2014

As Alexander McQueen‘s show begins, you immediately enter into another Galaxy. You then land in another world. Ready for an expedition. But you refuse and instead, decide to pose on this new World. In fear that your Alexander McQueen gown would get ruined. But as you stare out into the Scenery, you notice your back on planet Earth, in your seat at the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 show, and that the show has ended.

“Tribal Couture,” is how Net-A-Porter described Sarah Burton‘s Tribal inspired collection. In many tribal inspired prints, cutouts, and the Styles and the Silhouettes remind me of Herve Leger by Max Azria‘s Warrior Girl inspired Fall 2012 collection. While the much sculpture and unique fabric textures, make me think Haute Couture.

“Do you believe in UFO’s?” Sarah Burton described to Harpers Bazaar magazine in their March 2013 issue, as the first question Alexander McQueen, himself asked her during her interview for an internship with the brand. As described in Bazaar, “Burton, a polymath with a deep love of the arts, music, and science, hit that question about imagination and faith on the nose with a resounding ‘yes!'”

So how did we get to this Tribal Galaxy during Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2014 collection? Simply on a UFO.

Valentin Yudashkin Spring 2014

A Classy Glam Goddess, is how I’d describe today’s Valentin Yudashkin collection. Using hues of: cobalt, gold, Emerald, and Daffodil. Valentin Yudashkin definitely has the perfect wardrobe for any women, from day to night. For a daytime feel, Yudashkin incorporated the slouch in his Bedazzled and silk suits, creating that Sexy sleepwear feel. So Chic for Spring. The paisley like prints definately created a contrast, paired with those almost pajama like silk pants. Silk dresses in shades of Coblast and Gold, really created a tea party like, and cocktail like feel. Especially with that instant hourglass shape created. But Yudashkin dared to leave everyone Speechless with his array of Glam Golden gowns, draped in Jewels and Feathers. That were almost Couture like. Definitely a Classy Glam Goddess.

Valentino Spring 2014

Known for their breathtaking gowns, season after season, there’s no surprise that Valentino‘s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccoli have left everyone Speechless. In their show notes, the show took inspiration from, “Imaginary Ethnic Groups,” as the collection took a more Queenly approach. There is also a little bit of a reminiscence to the costumes from the Game of Thrones.

I really loved though, the mix of neutral and pastel hues, with rich hues of Oxblood and Navy seen throughout the collection. And the mixture of textures, especially those suede shorts and capes paired with those chiffon bow tied tops. But the many prints seen throughout the collection, really gave a Conservative, Queen like vibe; and in fabrics of lace and silk, and many belted around the waist. It just looks so modern. Masterpiece, indeed.

An Artistic Vibe at Chanel Spring 2014

The wait is finally over!!!!!!! Turning the Grand Palais into a Chanel Modern Art Gallery. Not only were the models gliding past paintings and sculptures, each referencing Chanel’s logo. But indeed, the clothing and makeup the models wore were masterpieces themselves. With the fabric of tweed as key. Lagerfeld focuses on a new trend: wearing two handbags at once. The collection was extremely feminine, yet very vibrant. I fell inlove with the artsy vibe seen throughout the collection, but that Classy Coco Chanel feel, showed off some elements signature to the House of Chanel for years. Definately to impress Coco Chanel, herself. And if you love bright, neon hues like me, this is definitely your Spring collection. Karl Lagerfeld is definitely the Genuis. Bravo!
