Schiaparelli and the Moon

Publication1

The cosmic spirit of Schiaparelli is back! The fall 2016 couture collection which debuted at Paris Fashion week is a star sign believers dream. The falling lines, draped fabrics and gold details are fit for an eccentric empress. Whimsical patterns, colors and appliques play nicely with the geometric cuts in this collection. My love for the moon, the feel of daily cosmic energy and this collection, it’s all a correlation to me.

ORLA KIELY- LEAVE ME ALONE

There’s no connection I know of between Orla Kiely’s collections and the New Order song Leave me Alone but the two are linked in my head. I view Orla Kiely’s collections as a daydream that I dont want to stray away from. The textiles catch my eye like fancy stationary in a shop that I just have to have. I will never need it,  I just want it. This past spring I contemplated on buying an Orla Keily skirt directly from their site. The thought of spending $350 on single skirt was a struggle. I spoke about this with a friend because I really, really wanted it and I got her opinion. She pointed out that the skirt was 100% silk and asked me with both hands placed stern on her hips, “are you prepared to take on the responsibility of caring for something made of 100% silk?” The thought of owning silk didn’t scare me, however the thought of spending that much money on a single item did. It’s just not part of my lifestyle right now but  a girl can dream right?

So, its been a couple of months since I had that conversation and you know what? I never got the skirt. So here I am daydreaming about owning the Fall 2015 RTW collection with the music of New Orders Leave Me Alone playing around me. Maybe I’ll shoot for next spring:

TOM FORD: FALL 2015 RTW

At first sight of the film A Single Man, I immediately found myself submerged into the world of Tom Ford. The sophistication and elusive emotion the film carries throughout drew me to further delve into the presence of Ford. His iconic designs  for Gucci & YSL that changed the powerhouse Gucci Group will be forever praised. His natural ability to carry out cohesive and prestigious collections is a gift to us. Fords Fall 2015 ready to wear collection is nothing short of rock star sumptuous. Elongated lines, 70’s influence patchwork, fringe and cirlce scoopnecks define my favorites below.  TomFord TomFord1 Tomford2 TomFord3 TomFord4 Tomford5 images by Allesandro Garofalo courtesty of Style.com

In LA it’s been 70 degrees and its starting to feel like fall, finally! Wildfox Couture’s  pairing of  over-sized sweaters with shorts sums up California weather, where it’s never too cold. Throughout this visual promenade I love the mix of polka dots, florals and sequins. Sequins! The holidays are creeping up on us! You can see the rest of WC lookbooks here.

Versus Fall 2013 RTW Collection

Versace’s Versus line debuted in NY yesterday amongst a crowd of what is described as 90’s club kids. I wonder if anyone at the show had one of those plastic pacifiers around their neck.. remember those? The collection is a fusion of 90’s Vogue editorial spread when punk/grunge was super chic meets the costume design of Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element. Love the royal blue look below makes me think of Jarvis.
