I’m completely in lust with this Simone Rocha coat, as modelled by the lovely designer herself..
The boys at Viktor & Rolf sure know how to evolve a bow and ruffles…In their latest collection bows were overtly oversized, sitting proudly across the chest or snaking down a sleeve. Ruffles subverted simple white shirts, abundantly gathering in a pool at the hem, all showing a rather wonderful display of creative pattern cutting. As my favourite look above intelligently displays, why simply attach a bow when it can be grown on to form the most fabulous of sleeves…
Alber Elbaz is the king of creating gorgeous, glamourous dresses but this season it was the blouses that were truly captivating. How ravishing they were, with sumptuous exaggerated ruffles in diaphanous chiffons, creating a dramatic vision. Of course there were beautiful dresses too, in rich velvets and full skirted shapes, with delicate floral embellishments, which were repeated across simple tailored separates. A truly beautiful collection…
Yohji Yamamoto is a designer firmly rooted in avant garde design, however for me it’s the artistry displayed in the details that appeals. The folded cube effect shown here is subtle but so enthralling and the small gathers & pleats create beautiful soft volume, all offset with some rather fabulous millinery…
It’s no secret that I j’adore Dior and have a great love for the direction in which Raf Simons has been taking the brand since his appointment in April last year. Through his last three shows he has merged his signature sleek minimalistic vision with the old school glamour of Dior to create a strong vision for the house. The most recent collection continues with this elegant stride. For me the beautifully cut coats stole the show, soft and ladylike with undone bows and voluminous shapes. For a lighter cover up, short capes were slung nonchalantly sideways over the shoulders and teamed with skirts, both close to the body and flared in slick, shiny black. The dresses also did not disappoint, in monochrome with ruffles at the waist, feminine silhouettes with pockets at the waist in soft pastels and just incase the lady of Dior felt a touch too grown up, cheeky prints of shoes across clean shapes brought back a touch of fun and whimsy…
