  • Delpozo’s “Demi Couture”…

    Almost Couture.. Josep Font collections for Delpozo have been described as “demi-couture”, as close to Haute Couture as you can get. His Resort 2018 collection is clear proof of his amazing talent!!  Voluminous, architectural, sculptural shapes in bright, fluorescent hues, contrasting with soft, floaty, drapey, ethereal dresses. True “demi-couture” and so beautiful!!

  • Balenciaga @ Colette…

    Balenciaga and Creative Director Demna Gvasalia announced that Balenciaga will take over the first floor of the iconic Colette concept store in Paris with a series of events and exhibits and offering specially designed , limited edition items that will surely become collectible objects of desire… Not to be missed by any fashionista that visits Paris from June 19th through August 5th!!

  • Fashion Flora…

    Beautiful works by some of the most important international illustrators are displayed in Nick Knight and Showstudio’s Fashion Flora Exhibition in London.
    It has been described as “an explorative look at the use of flowers as a motif in fashion throughout the decades” Artists were inspired by works of some of fashion’s iconic designers, such as Alexander McQueen, Dior and Dries Van Noten, just to name a few. Some of the works and illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful!!   The flowers exhibited just amazing!! Wish I could see this personally… J’adore!

  • Ellery…

    I have been following the work of Australian designer Kym Ellery, and just love what I see in her Resort 2018 collection…
    Her innovative cuts, impeccable tailoring and seventies-inspired styles have made the Ellery collection a much coveted name for international fashionistas. So modern, fresh and new… J’adore!!

  • The Impeccable Narciso Rodríguez…

    The Resort 2018 collection by Narciso Rodríguez is sooo beautiful !!
    The minimalist, clean vision of pure lines and shapes Narciso Rodríguez is so well known for is all here, but what has been called by WWD “modernist couture references” of voluminous asymmetric skirts make this collection totally fresh looking and unique. The blush accent color is a win win as well… J’adore!!

  • Linda’s @ Bergdorf’s…

    Love these Bergdorf’s windows by Donald Robertson on the launch of Linda Fargo’s concept store in the iconic New York retailer.. As Fashion Director for Bergdorf Goodman, the shop will feature Fargo’s “tastes, latest obsessions and fascinations”.
    Will post photos of the shop soon… keep posted!!

  • Gucci’s Renaissance Revival…

    Alessandro Michele had a Renaissance revival for the Gucci Resort 2018 collection…
    Presented in the amazingly beautiful Palazzo Pitti in Florence, models walked in front of paintings by Botticelli, Velazquez, Titian, Rubens… walking through some of the most opulent, sumptuous, splendid galleries.
    Paisley and floral patterns, velvet, brocade, lace, pearls, leopard prints, classical gilded wreaths… it was all there. It was clearly a Gucci Renaissance excess; and it was sooo great!!

  • “Piscine Privée”…

    The retro ’50s- ’60s trend seen in the Miu Miu  Spring-Summer collection is the clear inspiration for this Marie Claire France editorial “Piscine Privée”
    High waisted bathing suits and shorts, retro hues and prints, bathing suit silhouettes that remind us of Esther Williams..  even the flower embellished swim caps… the colors are so beautiful and refreshing.. J’adore!!

  • The Drifter…

    Love this British Vogue editorial shot by Mario Testino in the coast and beaches of Goa, India, featuring the young and latest Brazilian “model wonder” Ellen Rosa… J’adore!!

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • Jacquemus…

    I have been following the work of Simon Porte Jacquemus, and loooove the way this young Frenchman has developed his highly successful and very much acclaimed line, Jacquemus…
    His FW17 collection was a study of retro sophistication.. so beautifully tailored and cut and… sooo feminine!!
    In his own words.. “It was about this Parisian girl who wears couture who falls in love with a gypsy in the south of France”…
