After a season filled with many new beginnings, (Jeremy Scott makes his debut at Moschino, Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley at Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Nicolas Ghesquière today at Louis Vuitton), the newly named Creative Director at Louis Vuitton, honors the past, and looks to the future as, “today is a new day.” Written in the show notes. As we salute to the past, at Marc Jacobs 16 legendary years at the House, Ghesquière leaves us remembering those days with former Runway regulars, Freja Beha, (opening the show, scream!!!!!!! A big excitement for me, especially since the Danish beauty hasn’t made any appearance at Fashion Week since she wasn’t featured in Chanel’s Spring 2012 campaign), and Maggie Rizer. But as we look back at the days when Marc Jacobs took the reigns at Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière leaves excited and ready for what he has in store for us in the future at Louis Vuitton.
Ever since Pre-Fall 2014, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, has been a more simple route with her collections, leaving just as much a memorable statement as Marc Jacobs’ last Louis Vuitton show back in March. Kicking off Milan Fashion Week, every single a-list model that didn’t seem to make an appearance at New York Fashion Week, (think on the list of: Sigrid Agren, Anja Rubik, Kasia Struss, and Daria Strokous), stormed down the white-out Gucci catwalk, in a candy coated ensemble, and Equestrian boots in a light brown neutral, or Snakeskinned. As trenchcoats and outerwear seem to be the big thing at New York and London Fashion Weeks, they also seemed to make camo at Gucci, in militaristic inspired silohouettes and of course, fur. While outerwear, animal prints, and pastels may seem to be the big thing at Gucci, for the evening wear, Giannini sends out an array of leather cocktail dresses, plastered in silver, metallic chains. Definately the perfect collection for some Simplicity and Classic staples, with a bit of that bold, edgy twist; Purely Chic. A very Mod feel, overall.
Tonight, we go to a place far, far away, up in the sky, and in the clouds. Comes an array of the comfiest looking neutral and Wedgewood dyed ensembles, in styles of zig-zags and squiggles, making me think a little of the pajamas that I wore when I was just about 5 years of age, but with a more mature, bold and wearable twist to it. With gowns in all things sheen, and plastered in sheer ruffles, actually looking as if they are clouds from the sky, making you feel as if you are flying in the sky. And even Kim Kardashian’s lil sis, Kendall Jenner, making her runway debut. When new beginnings come for Marc Jacobs, a Stunning finale to New York Fashion Week, (which I’m actually pretty sad to say goodbye to), comes along with it. As writer and Style.com editor, Matthew Schneier had said on Instagram, “‘The skies are above clear again,’ the soundtrack says. Dare to dream, says six inches of snow expected tonight.”
Jonathan Saunders Pre-Fall 2014 collection may have been a preview of what we are to expect at the just shy to it’s start, Fall 2014 Fashion Week. As Zac Posen releases his ZAC Zac Posen collection, demonstrating none other than giving floaty staples and Florals a Fall twist; when a halter maxi gets paired with a black blazer, an aqua floral scarf gets tied atop a tweed trench, and black floral hoes get paired with all your Classic, Ladylike staples for an extra bit of zest.
Australian Supermodel, (and the face of Marc Jacobs’ perfume “Dot”), Codie Young models the look.
When you the words “tropical prints,” most people think of a Summer maxi, or a bikini that you’d wear on a hot summer’s day. You saw them on the Etro, Marc Jacobs, Dsquared, and Hermes Spring runways. So tropical prints … Continue reading →
