NYFW: Jason Wu Spring/Summer 2014 collection

So doing an almost u-turn from his Fall collection, Jason Wu has certainly out done himself. A particular show stopper being the bias-cut, gold-beaded dress Karen Elson wore to open the show. I loved how feather-light and sometimes sheer the dresses seemed. It was a little bit like underwear as outwears. For something a little(…)

Close-up: Fendi Spring/Summer 2013 Bags

Clearly the best collection of accessories to hit the Spring 2013 catwalk. A rejuvenation of everything that was great about the classic Fendi but given a modern upgrade, good bye tired old F symbol. Fendi signature bags The Baguette, Peekaboo, and 2Jours have all received a 3D facelift, with geometric and touchable designs. Weaving, sequins,(…)

Backstage at the Ermanno Scervino Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Show

Last week I went to the amazing Ermanno Scervino show during Milan Fashion Week. I was lucky enough to be able to go backstage and see a few of the looks up close. A few pieces really caught my eye, especially a pair of wedges that I wish I could have taken hope with me.(…)

Yesterday evening I made my way to via Gesù to attend the Versace SS13 show. The whole street was buzzing with paps while colorfully dressed people made their way to the queue to get into the show. The venue being Palazzo Versace was transformed into a white pinky oasis with big white rose trees and(…)

MFW: Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

While a mega-screen projected silently moving water, model after model came down the runway wearing gowns so light they looked like a second skin. With their hair gelled back as if they had just come out of the water and many gowns ending in a delicate train, the models looked like a parade of beautiful mermaids. Sheer(…)

MFW: Ermanno Scervino Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Fabio and Olimpia Today I attended the Ermanno Scervino show with my friend Fabio which completely blew me away! From the bold color palette to the shoe sculptures parading the runway, there was not one single piece of clothing to diss! My personal favorite was an orange gown with the most incredible lacing going around(…)

LFW: Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Yes, yes, yes! Hands down best Spring/Summer 2013 collection yet (and that includes the shows in New York). The most colourful collection from Christopher Bailey since he took the reigns as head designer at Burberry in 2009, this seasons collection is supposedly inspired by British fashion photographer Norman Parkinson’s work from the 40s and 50s, whose(…)

NYFW: Jenny Packham Spring/Summer 2013 Bags

I have been dying over this PVC trend for quite some time, and am so happy it’s here to stay! But in true Jenny Packham style, they have managed to make a trend that can occasionally look cheap, still very old school glamour with glistening crystals, jewel clasps, and satin frame-tops. I’m sold! Will definitely be(…)
