Nicolas Ghesquiere has officially made his Louis Vuitton collection debut this morning during Paris Fashion Week. The collection seems to follow the western trend that we’ve been seeing for fall. This 70’s inspired collection is filled with high waists, vintage inspired patchworks, looped belts and edgy leather detailing. Ghesquiere stays true to the fashion house’s classic style but definitely adds his own personal takes to it. What were your thoughts on his first LV collection?
It’s only been about 3 years since Fashion Week moved to its home in Lincoln Center and it looks like they will be moving again! The Hudson Yards are located in the garment district – close to many designer’s studios and are set to be the next home of NYFW. They’re large, spacious, have a sick view and promise to show Fashion Week-goers an even more amazing time than Lincoln Center has! We still don’t know when the first fashion week at the Hudson Yards will be since they are still to-be-built; but I think that it could be the perfect location for an event like fashion week!
What do you think about the change??
Stacy Bendet has done it again. Completely impressed with her new Alice & Olivia Spring ’14 collection, which showed yesterday during New York Fashion Week. It’s filled with color and sparkle and happiness all around. While color blocking and bright colors took over the runways last Spring, this year is going to be all about pastels, muted colors, and our favorite combo – Black & White! And contrary to popular belief, leather is here to stay through Spring…so hold on to those leather track pants and paneled tops because the warm weather will be calling them! Below are some of my favorite looks from her show:
And for your viewing pleasure only, the cutest Fashion Week moment you’ll ever see:
Dear Leading Ladies of Hollywood, we have found your Oscar gowns and we expect you to wear them! With the Oscars right around the corner and New York Fashion Week in full swing, we can’t help but wonder what Hollywood’s elite will be wearing at this year’s award show. So we stopped wondering for a second or two and have compiled a list of Oscar worthy looks straight off the runways of New York City. From bold and beautiful to just simply elegant, going wrong in one these gowns is highly impossible.
Do you think we nailed it? Weigh in and tell us what you think of our picks for the Oscars.
The best fashion shows are the ones that make you forget about all the madness of NYFW like tweeting every look or being the first one out of your seat to avoid traffic. It’s mesmerizing when a designer’s months of hard work and long hours are translated through the garments, creating a unified feeling of appreciation and awe. Monique Lhuillier did just that last night at the Lincoln Center theatre for her Fall/Winter 2013 show.
Famous for her extravagant, celebrity-driven red carpet gowns, Monique Lhuillier dramatized her sophisticated feminine aesthetic. It was a bold, opulent collection full of rich jewel tones, abstract prints and intricate detailing.
She opened the show with heavy snow-white knits and separates before hitting it hard with saturated color. The runway backdrop was mimicked by a green malachite rock, which she said was the color inspiration of the entire collection. This green was consistently shown throughout the show along with other deep shades of oxblood, amethyst and a timeless black.
Details varied from lace sleeves and cutouts to flouncy ostrich feathers and sparkling beads. Every piece was embellished with something ornate giving eveningwear new lengths. Abstract embroidery prevailed while any thought of simplicity was absent.
She gave femininity a new edge by including a lace cigarette pant under a matching high-low dress and placing bold jeweled collars on peplums and romantic fabrics like silk and tulle. While beautifully adorned gowns swept the runway, Lhuillier varied hemlines by including above-the-knee cocktail length and a new cut, just above the ankle.
Monique Lhuillier’s hard work surely paid off as she received a standing ovation by many audience members. Her anything but ordinary pieces will soon be all over the red carpet like always. But until then, it’s back to work for the designer for next season’s collection because great things take time and last night’s show is going to be hard to top.
