As WWD said, Girogio Armani’s Emporio Armani collection reminds us where, “menswear and feminine elements come together.” Neutral hues, such as black, white, and grey remain key throughout the collection. While a baggy black shirt, trousers, and a ladylike hat & pair of gloves. A knit sweater, black striped blazer, and velvet trousers. And a ruffled trench gets paired with masculine separates. To perfectly show where our favorite masculine and feminine staples meet, the sensual Emporio Armani way.
When most people hear the words: Eclectic and Ladylike; most people think they are 2 totally different words, to describe a thing. But when, the boldness and variety, gets printed on Ladylike, 1940s silhouettes like at Marni’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection; the 2 words can perfectly be able to describe it. As the graphic prints, signature to the Marni brand get plastered on chiffon gowns. A striped fur shaw adds an extra pop to a red & pink futuristic inspired printed gown. Red plaid and checkered separates add an eclectic accent to a tweed suit. While a red peplum top, gets paired with a Cobalt below-the-knee length skirt, belted at the waist, and finished off with a black fur scarf and leopard printed pumps. Ladylike and Eclectic, indeed!!!!
Leather trousers and a Masculine trench gets paired with a pearl necklace. A black hoodie gets feminine with a lace pencil skirt. A tweed jacket and shorts are paired with a black peplum top, and a matching fur Shaw. Leather baroque pants and a pearl necklace get dressed down with a black tee and jean jacket. And a sequined dress gets worn underneath a slouchy black hoodie for a more casual, daytimey feel. For Pre-Fall 2014, Vera Wang gives your favorite Masculine and Sporty inspired pieces a Feminine and Ladylike touch. Reminding me a little of Wang’s Fall 2013 collection, when it comes to the long gloves and the Beautiful baroque in hues of lavender and black. The collection feels oh-so-Beautiful and so right now, when the Masculine and Sporty elements come in to play. Leaving me wishing for some of the looks to appear under the Christmas tree.
Today, my good friend G told me that if I had a white wig on that I’d look just like Mrs. Claus, and I couldn’t agree more! As I take on a younger, more modern version of Santa’s wife. Wearing … Continue reading →
Peplum. A Fur Shaw. Tweed. Delicate Diamonds and Pearls. And an instant Hourglass figure. For Pre-Fall, Zac Posen takes note from 1940s inspired sillohouettes. Using the delicate and ladylike staples seen throughout the decade. But as the 1940s may be key, rich hues of Oxblood, Navy, Red, and even pastels, and some Ruffles are used to give the collection a modern twist. And with Zac Posen’s Beautiful signature ball gowns, what could be better?
