Mulberry Gives Classic Staples a Cute and Cozy Twist for Pre-Fall

As Iconic Creative Director, Emma Hill, (who by the way helped give the House of Mulberry a name), departed Mulberry. The first collection without the designer at the brand gave Classic staples a Cute and Cozy twist. The importance of outerwear was shown, as puffy coats get a trench inspired silhouette and are finished off with a cute little bow. The bow, itself, seen a lot throughout the collection, as the bow is also seen on Pea Green draping silk tops, paired with a Classic black suit or pencil skirt. And even giving a blouse in a horiziontally striped print, usually seen on your traditional menswear button-down, a cute and feminine twist. While a tan jumpsuit with paisleys embroidered all over it; makes me reminscene the days when Emma Hill reigned at Mulberry.

Dries Van Noten Spring 2014

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Guests arrived to a Spectacular setting, with a runway flanked with Golden shutters. Dries Van Noten‘s golden crinkled invitation was just the beginning! And the models definitely lived up to the opulent runway. Gold was the key hue. But besides gold, Van Noten used many rich shades of: Oxblood, Black, and Cream. The many mixed feminine prints, and the delicately embroidered jackets, really give the collection that artsy Bohemian vibe. Van Noten used many mixed textures of: pleats, ruffles, Embrodery, and even transformed fabric into designer’s favorite this season: abstract flowers.

Just Cavalli Spring 2014

Walking on a Runway filled with Excitement and color; models storm down the runway in Spring plaids, Tropic prints, and of course Leopard. Almost looking like they’re going on a Beach vacation.

I love the use of Spring plaids, it really brings a more feminine and Ladylike vibe to any look. While the Tropical prints bring such a fun and Bold vibe.

l love how Cavalli mixed many different fabric patterns and textures, a trend seen a lot throughout Fall RTW and Haute Couture shows, and a lot throughout the Spring shows. Roberto Cavalli makes the Just Cavalli girl ready to take Fashion by Storm, this Summer, even while on the road!

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.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 Brings a Stunning Finale to New York Fashion Week

image image image image

Just looking at the photos, I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY. Marc Jacobs definitely presented another Amazing finale to New York Fashion Week, just about an hour ago. The collection, set in a dilaplcated beach, heat included. Jacobs sent many models down the runway in Beautiful tweed jackets with fringe and black embroidery, and Beautiful Baroque floral, more tropical inspired prints In the beginning.

Throughout the collection, Jacobs uses very Strong, Dramatic colors that were seen a lot throughout the Fall shows like: Oxblood, Black, Emerald, and Navy. Other elements I’ve noticed throughout the collection was sheer fabrics and Beautiful Baroque and Sparkled embroidery.

Jacobs then sends models down the runway in Beautiful Sparkly dresses, and evening gowns with none other than Sparkles dazzled on them.

image image image image image image

And in the end, I see many Beautiful Victorian Inspired gowns really bringing in that Glamour and Romance seen at many of the Spring shows here in New York. With of course, the Beautiful sheer fabric on the sleeves and on the neck, and in very many dark, Dramatic hues. And the Victorian style ruffles on some of the dresses. Kind of reminds me of Halloween, but in a more tasteful and of course Chic way. Now I can’t wait to see what Marc Jacobs has in store for us in three weeks at Louis Vuitton!
