vionnet fall winter 2017 2018

Vionnet in Milan

It seemed only fitting to have the first Vionnet show in Milan hosted at such a magical location of the 15-century Casa Degli Atellani, a vineyard of Leonardo Da Vinci’s. Maybe to make everything even more perfect, you could hear birds chirping in the background to really draw from the inspiration. The flowing effortlessness of long dresses, skirts, and jackets…

Vivetta inside the 40s Circus Glamour

Backstage at Vivetta I was feeling happy. The reason was that as soon as I entered the first thing I saw were the colorful dresses for Winter 2017 2018 and I love myself some color to fight the gray days of the Milan winter. Vivetta has been on my fashion radar for a while, and it is one of the…

Fashion Trend Getting Political

In the 80s Katharine Hamnett invented the slogan tee and used her design power for good conveying political messages while encouraging people to ‘wear’ their voices. Those oversize t-shirts with large block letters were adopted by the pop scene including Wham! that wore the ‘CHOOSE LIFE’ tee in their ‘Wake ME Up Before You Go Go’ video. Other messages on…

Accessories have been women’s way of expressing themselves for centuries, heck, even jewelry has been around since almost as far back as the caveman days. There’s always been something in-trend that has been bigger, bolder, one piece of the total look that stood as the cornerstone for the whole rest of the look. The signature on the masterpiece if you…

Fall Trends: The Pantsuit

It began with the greats, Coco Channel, Katharine Hepburn, even Frida broke the mold defying all by donning men’s wear in a time when women were still regulated to skirts and dresses. One could not say the same today, where it’s sometimes hard to get a woman out of her comfortable jeans and into a skirt. I am delighted to announce that even…

Francesco Scognamiglio Monochrome

The color palette for the Francesco Scognamiglio Spring Summer 2017 collection was a bit cooler than one might typically expect. Blacks, whites, the occasional strawberry gold metallic and the ever elegant Willow China floral print in blue and white which served as the most spring-esque of the fabric selections. Keeping with this year’s trend, the designs were of a classically…
