A trench coat gets asymmetrical buttons. Oversize cream trench gets covered in fringe. Knit now becomes a staple fabric for pants. While a tweed pant gets paired with a blouse, collared like Angelina Jolie as the self proclaimed, “Mistress of all Evil,” in Disney’s upcoming fairytale, Maleficent. Creative Director, Phoebe Philo, gives Classic staples a futuristic twist.
Oh how time has gone by! It seems like yesterday when the year 2012 has just started, and now November will be gone, and December would have arrived 2 weeks from now. And Vogue Japan officially released their January 2014 Cover! Starring a Vogue Japan favorite, Karlie Kloss.
On the Cover, Kloss brings out the asethic, seen in one of my favorite editorials, “The New School Uniform” which appeared back in the Vogue’s September 2013 issue. Wearing a PreppyRalph Lauren hat, monochrome striped sweater, a white blouse, black blazer, and a black scarf; each seen in the brand’s Fall 2013 collection.

Okamoto was on Vogue Japan’s October 2013 issue, Stunning in a Beautiful plaid Celine ensemble. As stunning and as unique as Okamoto’s cover look was, Kloss’ latest cover look for the magazine was not so Stunning. Hopefully Vogue Japan will get the memo soon.
The runway, surrounded by inventive decor, Creative director Miucca Prada gave her audience just a glimpse of the Artistic patterns that we’re seen throughout the collection, with wallpaper panels. Like many designers have been doing this season, Miucca Prada is … Continue reading →
