Rochas Spring 2014

“Underwater love. Sheer, frills, translucency and crystals at Rochas to a subterranean soundtrack from The Cure. Lovely last hurrah from Zanini.” Is what i-D Magazine quoted about Marco Zanini’s, sadly, last Rochas collection, on their Instagram. What I loved most was that the Crystals, Pearls, Pastels, and the frills that really brought such a Glamorous and Romantic vibe to the collection as a whole. A trend seen throughout all the cities at Fashion Week. While the frills made me think of a modern-day Marie Antoinette. As I’m currently reading Joan DeJean’s “The Essence of Style,” about how the French invented Fashion, Chic Cafes, and Gourmet food. The collection gives me reminiscence to the 17th century Fashion, described in, “The Essence of Style,” but with a Modern twist. And how couldn’t be obsessed with those fur pumps?

Donatella Versace Gives Feminine Spring Staples, A Versace Twist for Spring 2014

Pastels. Wedges. Floral Prints. And short skirts and dresses. Just some of the feminine Spring staples, of which Donatella Versace gave a Sexy and Edgy Versace twist. Using shades of Lavender and Aqua, Versace designs many dresses in Sexy styles and in fabrics of leather, with of course Versace’s signature studs and chains. Versace also gives the full skirt an edgy feel, in leather fabrics at the beginning of the collection.

The Signature Stunning finale at every Versace show, consisted of Evening Gowns in shades of Black, Silver, and Pastels, each with none other than a little bit of Sparkles and Chains. Many of the evening gowns had many Sexy cutouts, looking really tasteful and Stunning for just about any Women. Bravo!

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

I’ve always loved the such timeless Class and Femininity with a modern British Girl twist that Christopher Bailey has really brought to the House of Burberry Prorsum. His Spring 2014 collection has definitely brought that Class and Feminity, with such Beautiful Glamour and Romance, as the collection starts with an array of all Sweet Things: Lace and Pastels.

In the middle of the show, Bailey sends models out in cute, very British Girl ensembles of stripes and polka dots, such a fun and Sweet way to incorporate prints, while still having effortless Class.

I see a little bit of a 40s inspired Sillohettes towards the end of the collection with many of the Beautiful tan and pastel shaded trenches belted Glamorously at the waist.

And then the finale came about, raining Cherry Blossom petals as the models made their way down the runway; then in a Cherry Blossom plastered runway, Christopher Bailey took his bow, then exiting the runway. For the most Classy and Feminine show I’ve so far this Spring season.
