As the days for Pre-Fall 2014 collections arrive upon us, Tory Burch kicks off the 2-3 month season with a Beautiful, feminine, cute, Preppy, yet oh-so-Tory collection. As Jersey girl, Juliana Schurig shows off this 18 look collection, I notice an element seen a lot throughout the Spring 2014 collections, a mixing and matching prints. In the beginning comes an array of polka dotted and monochrome prints mixed together consisting of mainly hues of Black, white, and Navy, creating a Classy and feminine, and more mature look. Burch also includes many elements such as Beautiful floral prints, (one of my all-time favorite trends for Fall). And towards the end of the collection, favorite hue right now: Red. And I just love how however many prints are mixed and matched, each look is topped up a Cute blouse underneath, and one of my favorite trends, knee-high socks!!!!! Giving the collection a very modern, 60s feel to it. Overall, just an exciting start to this Pre-Fall and Fall 2014 season. Bravo, Tory!


Arizona Muse Returns in Louis Vuitton L’Invitation au Voyage Campaign

As Resort 2014 Campaign season is currently at it’s peak, Louis Vuitton exclaims that it’s not too late to release a Stunning Fall 2013 campaign. Released today, Arizona Muse and David Bowie pose in the heart of Venice, looking Chicer than ever in Louis Vuitton’s hottest Fall accessories.

The campaign reminds me of Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2013 campaign, starring Arizona Muse, in which Muse is gracefully lifted up in the air on a hot air balloon. Looking over the city of Paris in the hottest Louis Vuitton attire. Now in Venice, Muse encounters David Bowie, where she is pulled down from her basket, by Venison soldier.  A definate dramatic and Beautiful shot. As well as David Bowie’s shot in a Cathedral in Venice, as Bowie gives a feel of suspicion, 3 models stand behind him in gowns, with their faces each draped in a black mask. By far one of photographer, David Sims’ best works.

Now who couldn’t be obsessed with Louis Vuitton’s latest campaign?????

Still as Dramatic and Beautiful as the theme may be, Gianni gives the trend a Beautiful Springy feel at Gucci, with many long, flowy dresses in sheer fabrics.

Towards the middle of Gucci’s collection, it’s all about the Fringe. When models come out, carrying Beautiful snakeskin handbags in Bright fuschia and purple hues, with none other than the fringe. And who wouldn’t want to carry that Handbag?

At the end, Gianni sends out a Beautiful array of gowns in Beautiful sheer and Silk fabrics, incorporating many Dramatic shades of Oxblood, Green, and Cobalt blue. Many of which staples at Gucci’s Fall 2013 show back in February. And the last three Gowns leave me absolutely Speakless!
