And we quote…

What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language.

Miuccia Prada

Quintessential Prada…

The beautiful Prada Resort 2018 collection, shown in Prada’s own “Osservatorio” space, above the amazing Galleria Vittorio Emmanuelle II in Milan, was a study in contradictions..
Candy store pastels, stark black;  “pretty pretty”, sporty;  delicate, utilitarian;  modernist, timeless… quintessential Miuccia Prada.. soooo good!!

Chic Simplicity…

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen presented a selection of  lovely, chic, minimalistic styles they are so well known for in The Row’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection.
Elegant, pared down styles; chic simplicity that wins every time. Forever pieces to have and to hold…

Art of The In-Between…

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s spring 2017 exhibition, ” Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between”, to open May 4th, is the first Costume Institute show devoted to a single, living designer since the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition in 1983, and examines the amazing work of this iconic Japanese designer.
As a preview of the exhibition, we quote Anna Wintour:  “Many will attend out of fascination, admiration, interest, curiosity, something that will be provoking, very transgressive, very progressive. If you are not a fashion obsessive, you’re going to be incredibly baffled. But art should do all those things.” An exhibition not to be missed!!

And we quote…

Fashion design is a good way of expressing values that are important to me: work hard, get strong, work together, live for what you believe in. For me, fashion design is just an expression of what I feel about life.

The Empire State Building’s Fashion Extravaganza…

Love these images!!
The Empire State Building in New York was a fashion extravaganza, lighting up with some of fashion’s most iconic images and moments to celebrate Harper’s Bazaar 150th anniversary. Images of  legendary photographers like Richard Avedon, Melvin Sokolsky, Peter Lindbergh, Erwin Blumenfeld, Steven Meisel and many others made this an unforgettable, spectacular fashion moment !!
