THE CHANEL RIOT

image

This Chanel fashion show definetely wanted to pass the message to the people were watching and I think everyone will remember it. The girls were holding speakers covered with the classic Chanel capitonné leather. The colors of the show were so beautiful that they made you want to get involved in this feminist movement and shout with those beautiful girls for our rights.

Models like Cara Delevigne, Gisele Budchen, Joan Smalls and any other you can imagine were shouting from their speakers and were holding signs with quotes like “History is Her Story”, “Ladies First”, “He For She” and anything that could prove that Karl Lagerfeld is a big feminist (bigger than many women I know) and his support to this movement is really moving.

Seriously the catwalk was the road and the models were on a riot. I don’t know if this show was recently uptodated or it was going to be that way from the beginning, but I think that Karl Lagerfeld was really to the point, when we see worldwide riots and #heforshe movement being supported by more and more celebrities. But in this riot the ’70s feminist revolution revived through the Karl Lagerfeld’s vision and the forever beloved Chanel style.

As you can imagine the Instagram was on fire so I chose some of my favorite posts and the most interesting videos just to catch the feeling from the Boulevard Chanel Riot.

OBJECT OF DESIRE
This pink illusion is the Rock Candy medaillon that I crave today. The pink Quartz combined with the golden and silver chain make it a dreamy necklace for every day of the year.

THE GIVENCHY SHOW

The Givenchy show just finished and it seems like a dream to me that I watched it live. Ricardo Tisci worked his magic and made the absolute black and white designs that looked so different from each other that I couldn’t stop admiring the designer’s imagination. As I’d like to make it easier for you to understand I am about to separate this fantastic show in chapters.

CHAPTER 1: THE STRIPES

image

The first one is all about stripes. Vertical stripes all over the place on dresses with deep V necks so feminine and a bit boho paired with knee high, peep toe, leather boots.

CHAPTER 2: THE EMBELISHED JACKET

image

This one is all about jackets and the cool kind of jackets, the embelished ones. Classic short or long jackets black and white with the greatest embelishments like a traditional costume.

CHAPTER 3: THE SHEER ONES

image

Layered dresses, knitted volans all in beautiful sheer garments gave this boho sense that we crave during Summer. Seems like Ricardo Tisci knows us better than we do.

CHAPTER 4: THE VESTS

image

Like an ancient army and a stylish one, the models came the one after the other with long vests on black and white of course and this time we saw a little coffee brown too. 

CHAPTER 5: THE BLACK AND WHITE

image

It’s a bit of a combination from the Chapter 3 and 4, so this one is a small Chapter that has all the non-striped black and white like two pieces outfits.

image

Ricardo Tisci made his black and white vision a real life thing and it was higher our expectations. Loved everything and even more I loved all the outfits that couldn’t get in any of those five chapters so I couldn’t leave without showing you my favorite ones (especially the shiny fringed blouse). I couldn’t be more excited about this show and let me confese: it was my favorite one since the beginning of SS 2015 shows. I said it, and I already feel lighter. Hope you liked it too.

TOUS Backstage Winter Party

I have promised you since yesterday this post and I tried to be as quick as possible with posting it. So as soon as I woke up I started writing and seriously I think my keyboard is on fire write now. I waited for long time for a party like this, because it had everything I wanted to see: fashion icons, cocktails and TOUS jewels. 

And this exactly was one of my favorite medallions that I’ve seen last night. I have never imagined that TOUS could be so playful with colors and this ’60s trend is really hot right now. This one and the rainbow TOUS bears (sadly I don’t have any picture of those necklaces with colorful precious stones) were seriously pieces of arts. 

And from all the jewels and all the bags and all the perfumes I saw (and smelled) in this new perfect flagship store those three pens will always have a place in my heart. I know I am addicted with pens and pencils, but they are so beautiful and luxurious and since yesterday I can’t stop imagine myself writing in my VOGUE scrapbook with one of those and reviewing fashion weeks. But it’s time to wake up!

Just before the end of my visit I discovered not only the perfumes that I tried and loved it, but also a photo booth the favorite installation of every fashion blogger. No kidding. So as you can imagine I took a picture with my sister and left all amused from a glamorous night.

"You can never be over dressed, or under educated." says Oscar Wilde. And he is right. The thing about style, is that it always depends on the occasion.

This week’s link roundup gets you ready for all of that so you’ll never be caught off guard. This season anyway.

ZEUS+ ΔIONE: ARIADNE’S THREAD

image

A sense of Ancient Greek Mythology gives us the vibe of the new Zeus+ Δione collection. The Ariadne’s Thread was the myth of the young and beautiful Ariadne, daughter of King Minos, who helped Theseus with a sword and a ball of thread, to kill the Minotaur who lived in the center of the labyrinth and find his way out. 

Zeus+ Δione reflect the mystery of this ancient culture in to their designs, with artistic and creative lines. Zeus+ Δione promises an Autumn travel full of mystery and style through the beautiful Greek villages. From undergarments to outerwear you can find everything on this unique Greek style and live in harmony with the green of our nature and the foggy Winter.

I’M A BARBIE GIRL

Recently I made a pink appearance so shiny and glam, that everyone who saw me, called me Barbie. At first I was a bit skeptical, I thought why anyone could resemble me, a brunette with dark skin girl as Barbie. Also I wasn’t sure if in general the Barbie name was good at all for someone to be told.

I left this appearance behind because I knew it was great, since I designed my dress and few days later I came across, this great Instagram account the BarbieStyle. And it’s exactly what you imagine, everyday outfits from the one and only Barbie we all used to play. As a matter of fact, we are not talking only about outfits, I was in front of a really successful fashion blogger that was in the first row on every fashion week around the world and she had better looks than many of the well known fashion bloggers. I searched on her Instagram account and I couldn’t stop scrolling down, dazzled by the pretty clothes and the Barbie beauty. 

But this story doesn’t end here. Yesterday I had the chance to watch the Moschino SS15 Collection and guess what. Another Barbie appearance. Not the doll Barbie but her clothes. Jeremy Scott created a whole new collection based on Barbie’s Style and it was a real marvel. I was thinking actually, “How many fashion icons, became inspiration for a whole collection?” I can’t remember many of them, I think Amy Winehouse inspired a whole Jean Paul Gaultier collection, but again she was a person, a singer, and she had recently died, so it was maybe something like a memorial. 

After all this I wanted to return to my appearance and feel so proud of this Barbie resemblance and thank everyone who loved this Barbie look. Anyway you will see soon the whole Barbie outfit, until then you can stay occupied with the Moschino-Barbie experience. Till then…

ANOTHER LINK À LA MODE WEEK

That Natural Look

Maybe it had something to do with that post the Man Repeller wrote about not wearing makeup. Maybe it’s about the Normcore sensibility of not trying too hard. Maybe it’s because everyone is fed up with hyper-photoshopped images in the media. But now? Now that natural look, unretouched has never been more perfect. This week we visit fashion month, with all the trends hitting the streets and the runways, so look into the future, it’s returning to the basics.
