Get your make-up pencils in order ’cause color on the eyes is a ‘thing’ again. A revival of a eighties make-up trend! Bright colored eye make-up was all over the national and international runways. From rainbow stripes to crafty eyeliner lines on, above and next to the eyes; a good eye shadow palette seems a necessity this season. Just click through our gallery of backstage beauty images of Haider Ackermann, Martin Margiela, MaxMara and No21 and you know what’s up. Time to get arty on the eyes. Rainbow down b*tches!

SS2017 Trend: Smooth & Shiny

A little sparkle goes a long way, so make sure you stack up on some shiny pieces for SS2017. Add a little disco to your #ootd. Opt for metallic (Haider Ackermann, Balmain), choose for sequins (Kenzo, Gucci, Marc Jacobs) or wow in crystal beads (Proenze Schouler). Taking the trend a little further you can of course add some shimmer in the shape of jewelry (Kenzo) and make-up too (eyes and nails deserve some extra spark too). Oh and of course then there are Gucci’s crystal encrusted glasses. What ever you do, don’t hold back. Shine on and, for everyone who’s looking; make it worth their while.

SS2017 Trend: (Patent) Pink Party

When Valentino red turn pink you know something’s up. Bright pink is becoming the #1 color for this summer. And we can not think of a reason not to join this pink party. From Balenciaga to Vetements; the most fashion forward looks in bright pink are making headlights on the streets, in the fashion magazines and, of course, on Instagram. And might you think bright pink is daring enough, think again. Bright patent pink (as seen at Bottega Veneta) is even a better option. Not to mention the satin pink spotted at Ralph Lauren. And let’s not forget the red/pink combination both Sportmax and Valentino introduced. The in between shade of raspberry red spotted at Kenzo, Hermes and Michael Kors might be your best bet. The ultimate summer shade that works beautifully combined with mint green (just look at one of the Céline runway looks). Show some color, give them something to talk about and make it a (sweet) summer to remember!

SS2017 Trend: Underwear = Outerwear (again)

Why don’t you.. turn your outfit inside out? Wearing your underwear as outerwear is (once again) the coolest game changer. Wear your bras and bralettes over  your blouses and dresses and you’re right on trend. Or rather, leave the house in nothing more than a sheer body, a transparent slipdress or a triangle bra (midriff on display). Probably the easiest way to make a statement this summer. At least, that’s how Victoria Beckham, Céline, Alberta Ferretti and Alexander Wang feel about it. Not to mention Dries van Noten, Miu Miu and Giambattista Valli’s version of this daring trend. So, are you ready to show some skin or even #freethatnipple? Oeh la la.. lingerie!

SS2017 Trend: Fringe Party

Where hippies and Western influences meet, that’s where the fringe party is at. The party of the season, with a line up of big names, from Ralph Lauren to Hermes. And who knew this dresscode could be so diverse. From cool and grungy at Coach to line dance fabulous at Rodarte. Adding some fringes to your look don’t necessarily turn you into a cowgirl (although that Ralph Lauren hat might add to the effect). Just play around with it and use it as an extra asset to your fashion forward look. Like Miuccia Prada did in her SS2017 collection. Her fringe meets fur details gave her looks some extra elegancy and a bit more of a fun factor, whilst staying classy, modern and yet retro inspired. Not feeling the fringe shoulders or hemlines? Just opt for that cute little fringe bag Hermes designed for spring/summer. A subtle yet stunning way to join in on the fringe fun.

SS2017 Trend: Head over (Kitten) Heels

April 1, 2017 by

For years and years (decades perhaps) wearing a tiny heel was the least sexy thing a woman could do. I remember having read multiple articles with famous/fashionable women stating that the one fashion No Go they could think of was: wearing shoes with a short (below 2 inches) heel. High heels represented sexiness, power and fearlessness, so who would want to be caught walking on medium length heels? I did and I still do. I may be short, high heels just don’t work for me. They make me walk (stumble) awkwardly and they give me less confidence instead of more. Boy, am I glad times have changed and current shoe trends are possibly the most comfortable they have ever been. I mean sneakers, loafers and kitten heels are all over the cat- and sidewalks. And it’s those fifties style kitten heels that the biggest fashion lovers/unfluencers/social super stars are embracing the most. That J’aDior kitten heel with open ankle might be the it-shoe of the moment (if there ever was any). Besides, Prada, Loewe and Céline are celebrating the comeback of the lower heel too. This summer we can strut around WITH confidence yet WITHOUT painful feet. Comfy yet sexy. How about that high heel lovers?

SS2017 Trend: Good Sport

March 20, 2017 by  
Filed under Fashion, Trends

In line with our previously discussed trend (hoodies) we’d like to focus on a major catwalk trend that is very much related: sportswear inspired ensembles. Now, of course we’ve seen sportswear influences come and go for years. Yet, the sportive touch hasn’t been this present for years. It might have started with sneakers becoming extremely mainstream (and becoming more rule than  exception), but now sportswear inspired items, athleisure if you will, and details like hoodies, jogging pants, branded straps and bands, parkas, large zippers, mesh fabrics, caps (a big streetwear thing at the moment) and cycling pants are taking over. And it’s not just all American sportswear brands like Lacoste and Tommy Hilfiger who are focusing on activewear, DKNY, Prada and Versace are being good sports too this season. Not to mention old school brands like Fila, Champion and Kappa all making a major comeback (thank you Vetements). Now you don’t even have to stress about working up a sweat in these looks. You can easily rock a mesh cropped top during a late lunch with your friends and simply forget all about your soul cycling class. Besides, you wouldn’t want any sweat stains on your Carven top, now would you?

SS2017 Catwalk Trend: Spencer spending

Nerdy might just be the new sexy. That is, if we listen to labels like Gucci, Michael Kors and Prada. For SS2017 the spencer has a very seventies look & feel. It’s busy printed in a bright, warm color palette and even worn on top of busy printed and colored blouses. Just take a look at some of the examples. To make it even more library chic Gucci and Michael Kors added silk scarfs as Miuccia Prada let her models sport a turtle neck underneath both blouse and spencer. But before you complete wave away this SS trend, there is still room for some sensuality (as seen at Prada). Cropped and worn with hot pants the spencer isn’t all that nerdy anymore. And a waist belt can work wonders too. Still not convinced? Thanks to the spencer you can wear your favorite summer blouse even on the most chilly spring days. Perhaps you can borrow one from your grandpa. Otherwise you’re in for a serious spencer spending session.

SS2017 Catwalk Trend: Parka Power

January 15, 2017 by

We already briefly discussed this trend here, but let’s dig a little deeper into the Parka for SS2017. Cause in line with the overall sporty vibe the Parka popped up at the fashion shows of Versace, Sportmax, Maxmara and Stella McCartney. It fits perfectly with the focus on functionality that fashion is experiencing lately. A loose, comfy all zipped up parka (as seen at Sportmax) to hide in or an unzipped lightweight tech version leaving some room for sensuality and silhouette. Whichever way you’re going to sport the parka just know there are no rules. Bright colors (see Versace color blocking eighties palette) as well as sporty elements (like straps, elastics, hoodies, zippers and buttons) are very much allowed. Power to the parka!

SS2017 Catwalk Trend: Robe Chic

We’ve spent every last Penny on some of the best designer bargains and are officially done with sale shopping. Time to look ahead to what spring/summer has in stores for us. And trust us, it’s going to be an amazing fashion season. We understand you’ll not be parading in next to nude outfits any time soon, so we’re starting our SS2017 trend reports off slowly, with items you could possible already rock and buy while it’s still winter. Our first trend of choice: the luxurious rope.

Vloggers may have been right all along; there’s no shame in robe dressing. On the contrary, major designers have introduced the robe as the chicest thing for the upcoming summer season. Haider Ackermann, Lanvin and Burberry were some of the biggest players in this game of home attire dressing. Their runway looks filled with silky satin, paisley printed, robes in fact appeared highly desirable. Paired with some tough boots and a studded high waisted belt (Burberry) they might even become a hit among youngsters. We can already see these beautifully colored and printed robes matched with some destroyed denim and low cut tops. Or even with some silky pj’s still underneath. Either way, the straight out of bed #ootd was never this on trend.
