Sisters, Daniela and Annette Felder began their collection, which FYI kicks off London Fashion Week each season, showing off many Beautiful ensembles in shades of White and Ballet Pink, with none other than feathers, and Beautifully graphic flowers placed onto sheer, Nylon fabric tops, seen throughout the collection.

Felder Felder then adds in Beautiful mini cocktail like dresses, and long gowns in Beautiful shades of blue, ranging from Navy to Aqua. Silk fabric and peplums are now seen in the collection. Felder Felder also designs many tops in a Beautiful Geometric, sort of snakeskin like blue print. The collection ends with an array of Beautiful black ensembles in sheer fabric. And the collection just really has that Glamour and Romance that was seen at many of the shows at New York Fashion Week. Now I think I have my wardrobe for Cotillion covered.

For Spring, Lacoste‘s Creative Director Felipe Oliveira Baptista showed off a variety of Beautiful shades for Spring, and the more tasteful way for a women to wear the sheer fabrics in public. Both the women’s and menswear components of the collection was designed in hues of: White, Emerald, Navy, Peach, and a really light shade of Lime Green. The clothing was Beautifully tailored dresses that look comfortable to wear in the daytime, and at night. The dresses made in a sheer fabric, weren’t fully sheer as they were covered enough to look tasteful on any women. I would probably wear many of those dresses over my bikini, put on my Tory Burch or Ralph Lauren sandals, and there I am on the beach.

The men wore nicely tailored casual suits, and casual tops and shorts, perfect for vacationing.

As the end of the collection approaches, models start to come on the runway in Summer knits and Beautiful sheer dresses or a jacket with the high-low hemline.

Beautiful and Feminine Staples at Elie Saab Resort 2014

The Always feminine and Classy Elie Saab, still used his signature Sparkly evening gowns and feminine staples in his Resort 2014 collection, but he added a little bit of a Chic but so feminine edge to it with the high low hemline, and even little cutouts in some of his dresses. So Chic!
The collection showed off three main colors: Black and White, Tangerine, and Black in pieces throughout Elie Saab’s collection. Each in different styles. First, came the black and white ensembles, those mainly high low hemline dresses and pants. And a black dress with white only at the sleeves. And some Sexy cutouts made in fine lines on very sheer fabrics. Then to add a bit femininity to the collection, Saab designed an array of Beautiful black dresses with lots of lace, some with full skirts others with peplum, and some Sexy and skin tight. After that came a Chic nude pant suit with a train starting in the back, and a nude dress with cutouts showing in them, welcoming a Beautiful array of tangerine dresses. Starting from simple, more work appropriate to Beautiful floor length evening gowns, many with Sparkles, Lace, and in a sheer fabric. Definitely the perfect collection for any women at any age, and for the feminine girl who wants just a tiny bit of edge. So Feminine, Beautiful, and Chic at the same time.

Here are some of my favorite looks:

J Mendal Plays with Multiple Fabrics Textures for an Ultra Feminine Resort 2014 Collection

image image image image image image image

Model Bette Franke shows off many of the Feminine looks.

Fashion designer J Mendal played with many different fabric textures, resulting in an Ultra feminine, (as always), collection. Using about every fabric from sheer to silk to even some types of furs. Black and white were key colors, as the beginning of the collection started with Chic dresses, and shirt and skirt, or suit ensembles in this year’s two Chicest colors, black and white. Then at the end of the collection, pinks and tans were added in, showing off crop tops that are bedazzled and STUNNING evening gowns that could easily be found at the Emmy‘s, or in Cannes. Fur shaws were paired with sheer fabric dresses, for a vintage Chic look. Very Chic and Ultra Feminine.
