Alice Temperley Gives Classic Staples a Modern Twist

I have always admired Alice Temperley‘s work at her brand, Temperley London, the collections are always Feminine and Classy; yet so Fresh and Modern at the same time. Not to mention, her collections never dare to leave me unimpressed. Especially her latest Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Which gives your favorite Classic and Feminine staples, (think LBD, lace, and a Staple Trench), a more Fresh, Modern twist, (thinking on the lines of bold embellishment, leather, and 60s inspired staples such as: bright pink shifts, floral printed jumpsuits, and geometric shifts). But as these Classic and Modern staples are mixed, I can’t help but see a bit of the delicate 1940s inspired fashions, like: the long full skirt, a feather Shaw, and long and luxuriously delicate evening Gowns towards the end of the collection. Even making me think a little bit of Great Gatsby. Overall, giving off a very Modern, yet Classy and Dramatic vibe all wrapped up in one stunning collection.

Sachin + Babi’s Pre-Fall 2014 Collection has just Given Any Women the Perfect Wardrobe for Going Out

Mix your hoodie with your black embellished tutu! Pair that white tank with your favorite ruffled skirt! And wear your silver studded lion top with your favorite black suit!!!! Mixing feminine and edgy separates is what I see here at Sachin + Babi, describing my mom’s wardrobe for going out, pretty well. Now the pairings may be ideal to every women’s style, but mixing at matching the staples will definately leave you making a statement. Now I know I’m begging for each of those black tutu skirts, and that Eddy LBD, with Cavalli inspired purple and white graphics.

Kenzo Spring 2014

Inspired by the Ocean, I see this very opulence, vibrant, and oeuvre vibe. Kenzo Creative directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon use a variety of colors and patterns throughout the collection. The collection begins with an array of monochrome looks, many with fabric cut and put onto dresses, pants, trenches, and tops, for that very Playfullness vibe with the fabrics seen throughout many of the shows throughout Fashion Week. And then switches it up to very vibrant and oeuvre patterns in blues and pinks. Making me wish I was on an expedition in Bali.

Many of Prada’s dresses and trench coats are bedazzled, in many 70s inspired hues from Brights to pastels like Peach, and some even with Beautiful portraits designed onto the clothing, really making the artwork on the walls of the runway come to life.

The knit knee high socks, and the brights really give the collection a Chic 70s vibe.

N 21 Spring 2014

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!
