Vanessa Bruno Spring 2014

image image image image

I love Vanessa Bruno‘s show, it has that 90s Grunge feel with the plaid and the wedges, seen throughout all the Fall shows, but in a more Beautiful Spring like vibe. I see a bit of a nature like vibe, with the Butterfly prints on the dress. And the polka dots bring this very Cute and feminine vibe to the mix. But when all of these elements are mixed together, you have this just Beautiful, fun and vibrant collection. Leaving me Speechless.

N 21 Spring 2014

image image image image

For Spring, I just love how N 21‘s Creative Director, Alessandro Dell’Acqua mixed feminine and Classy elements, with many Casual, more Menswear like elements. Many of the ensembles throughout the collection are very Preppy tops paired with Sexy Sparkly and Lace pencil skirts. Definitely perfect Cocktail and Going Out attire.

Dell’Acqua also included many sleepwear elements in his collection, with many silk button-downs and dresses in shades of all kinds, and many Menswear Chic blouses paired with baggy shorts and Sexy pencil skirts. There is also a little bit of a Menswear vibe throughout this collection, with many Menswear like blouses and jackets. But the N 21 collection still has that such feminine and Romantic vibe, when paired with feminine styles of lace, ruffles, and silk. A Lace pencil skirt pick-me-up in February? Yes Please!

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

image image image image

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.

image image image image

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.

image image image image

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.

image image image image

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.

The wet hair look was seen, creating a perfect, just went for a Swim look.

From Sand at Tommy Hilfiger to Cars at Opening Ceremony to salt at 3.1 Phillip Lim, designers have been coming up with some of the most creative runway ideas yet for this Spring. Phillip Lim takes inspiration from China, but puts a feminine twist on the silouettes for Spring.

image image

Lim designs jackets with the Chinese dragon imprinted on them, and uses many baggy silhouettes for the pants, and jackets for a very Chinese-inspired collection. Also using fringe and Chinese like sandals, worn by many of the models.

Feminine pieces are seen throughout Lim’s collection from peplum, to pastels and delicately tailored dresses, and skirts. Sheer fabrics, key.

Jill Stuart Spring 2014

image image image image

Looking at Jill Stuart‘s Collection, I can definitely see a bit of the New England beach style in the collection, with the Classic white lace, stripes, knits, and the denim. And Jill Stuart definitely gives the New England beach style, an edge to it. Pairing many of the lace elements, and knits with leather separates. Stuart gives many of her lace and denim dresses Sexy plunges and cutouts, which really flatters any women’s body. The stripes are in a zig-zag style, to give the Classic nautical stripe a little bit of edge for Summer.

image image

The hair is down and wavy, for that Chic beach blowout seen at many Spring shows, and a black eyeliner statement in the eye for the makeup.

image image

Stuart pairs each of her looks with Beautiful, Beachy white or black strapped wedges.
