Forget fisherman’s hats and flat caps, if your hat game is going to be anything this season it’s bold and out of the box! No rules, no restrictions; if you want to give this hat trend a good chance you go all out! So start vintage shopping and market strolling for the craziest, most ridiculous and extraordinary hat or head piece and rock it like your life’s depending on it. A big (Easter bunny) bow as seen at Delpozo perhaps? A funky cap in the brightest pink (see Area and Byblos)? A safari hat (Loewe) or the floppiest of all hats out there (Missoni)? A sporty sun cap (Fenty), an extra elegant braided hat (Comey) or a simple scarf tied around the head in the most classic way. Hats off to this trend for making dress up styles become (somewhat) everyday pieces.

Aloha! No matter the temperature; SS2018 is going to be exotic. Marc Jacobs went all out with kaftans and turbans in the most colorful and tropical prints. At Versace skirts and bikini tops were just as bright and poppy. Gucci sent out the ultimate Hawaiian inspired skirt suit (paired with glittery gloves and a pile of necklaces). As Dries van Noten created the chicest flora and fauna print mix. At Elie Saab we witnessed a complete line-up of palm tree inspired/printed dresses. And then Peter Pilotto and Delpozo joined in on the foreign fun. If this image gallery doesn’t get you in the mood for hot summer days and long summer nights, we don’t know what will. Be Palm Beach ready whatever beach you’ll be flaunting around on.

Whoever ditched her earrings for season after season (like we did) is now in for a treat. Time to change up the accessory game and stack up on some fresh ear pieces. Right, it’s not just rings or studs anymore. A good ear party requires some out of the box thinking. Who doesn’t want a pink horse (like Gigi at Maxwell) in her ears? Or why not go all out with the loveliest, asymmetrical flower pieces? Speaking of asymmetry, Missoni and Zimmerman painted a pretty one statement piece picture. We spotted life size pearls at Undercover as well as the chunkiest metallic hoops at Fenty. Chandelier inspired designs made their way onto the Dries van Noten and Etro runway. As Acne went for something quite arty. Lots of style options for a good game of ear accessorizing. And might you think this is all still a little too subtle? The combination of powerful eye make-up and a stunner ear game worked pretty well at Comey, Undercover, Marni and Antonio Marras. So. join in on the fun while it lasts and have a great ear party!

Never though you’d be wearing a suit off duty? Think again. This summer you’re bound to suit up for just about any occasion given the fact that this business chic look comes in many different options. From pastel colored (Victoria Beckham, Gucci, MaxMara) and striped (Dolce & Gabbana, Emporio Armani) to denim (Dior) and extra vibrant (Versace, Marc Jacobs). Have your pick and start casualizing (if that was ever a word). Just add sneakers, a fanny pack, brooches (Dries van Noten), a beret (Dior), a good pair of sunnies (Gucci) as well as a good pair of loafers (Galliano) and you can go from desk to dinner (or dawn). Office proof meets street chic. Let’s suit up for summer!

If you’d had to pick the ultimate Easter brunch look this trend offers you all the inspiration you might need. Besides, nothing says ‘spring’ like a pastel perfect ensemble. Just ask Bottega Veneta, Dries van Noten and Marni, to name just a few. From baby blue and peach to lavender and lemon; your favorite sorbet flavour might just make the ultimate on trend look. Whether fringe (Bottega Veneta) or fur (Burberry), shiny (Tom Ford) or sheer (Carolina Herrera) this flirty and feminine look matches any style. Yet we’re mostly crushing the pink + yellow Céline, a color combination we’re probably going to see a lottt this summer. Are you feeling the soft color palette? And if so, which pastel party will you be attending?

Chloé Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2018

March 2, 2018 by  
Filed under Fashion, Paris, Trends

For Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s second collection the designer was inspired by seventies actresses such as Anjelica Huston, Sissy Spacek, Isabelle Huppert, and Stéphane Audran. So with images of those power women in mind she came up with a seventies inspired collection of elegant yet playful looks. Deep V neck dresses, turtle neck jumpsuits, high waisted flared pants, elongated blazers, blouses with wide sleeves and decorated cuffs/bangles. All done in earthy tones, seventies prints in the mix. Slouchy hips belts and long pendant necklaces worn over high collars. Models got minimal make-up and a Isabelle Huppert hairdo. Bonus points for the coats; a selection of unstructured trenches and a short fur coat looked like the ultimate fall musthaves. And a fresh line-up of Chloé bags as well as the laced up ankle boots and Chloé logo socks will surely boost sales. A seventies throwback with just the right dose of ‘nowness’.

The fashion train has ended at it’s last stop and the fashion crowd is rocking it’s final and most photogenic streetstyles at Paris Fashion Week. But before we discuss what’s new with LV, Givenchy and Chanel, let’s recap what styles Milano brought us for the new season. And there is lots to discuss. Gucci and Prada both scaled down the size of their shows. There were drones (Dolce & Gabbana) and dragons (Gucci) on the runway. We witnessed shows at a race court (Tommy Hilfiger) as well as in a hoarder’s garage (Marni). Bottega Veneta left Milan Fashion Week and Tommy Hilfiger landed his tour in de Italian city. There was a good game of dressing up (Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci) as well as some dressing down (Missoni, Marni). The seventies (Etro, Ferragamo) were a big theme as well as the eighties (Albera Ferretti, Versace). Belts (Marni, Etro) and blankets (MSGM, Jil Sander) both formed big trends as we went from bright and colourful (Moschino) to off colour (Max Mara). Have we sparked your interest yet?

Trend Report SS2018: Get Sporty

February 12, 2018 by  
Filed under Fashion, Trends, womenswear

Let’s just hope this trend never gets out of fashion. ‘Cause do we ever really (want to) wear anything else besides trainers and hoodies? Luckily for SS2018 it’s still allowed to release the Sporty Spice within. Although that sporty style did get some updates too. Being a good sport when it comes to this trend means dressing both practically as well as feminine. So it’s all about tight bodies with high zippers and tulle skirts (Dior), tight leggings and cropped jackets (Tommy Hilfiger), loose fitting yet off shoulder zipped up jackets (Lacoste), hot pants and running jackets (Isabel Marant) and highly accessorized sporty suits (Gucci). And let’s not forget the suncaps, the beanies, the cross body bags and the gloves. Ready for a good game of extreme sports while showing of your best body parts. Fast fashion never looked this good.
