An encrypted necklace (Balenciaga), a logo Swarovski belt (Gucci), a branded zipper (Marc Jacobs), a logo printed on a pair of neon socks, a print that when seen from up close turned out to be the letters of the brand. Whoever sat closest to the catwalk could spot the most logomania items. Details the largest fashion houses used to put some extra focus on their names. A simple and smart trick to brand your business and increase sells (showing off the labels your wearing wasn’t this hot since the nineties). Anyone who loves a little extra detail to an outfit could also love the clash/mix of fabric textures (as seen at MaxMara, McQueen, Calvin Klein). The perfection of certain zippers (Alexander Wang), buttons (MaxMara) and cuffs (Louis Vuitton). As well as the cutest, most detailed accessories, like a lamp handbag at Dolce & Gabbana and the bright colored pop jewelry at Versace. Look closely, pay attention and you’ll discover there are so much more layers to a collection than meets the eye.

Last year it seemed everyone was into matching green and pink as the ultimate color combination of 2017. This year color codes have been redefined and so some new combinations have been presented. So how about pairing orange and blue as seen at Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Acne? Purple and yellow perhaps as Carolina Herrera made a gorgeous color statement. And if anything says high summer it is the match of yellow, light pink and red shades (Dries van Noten, Sies Marjan, Etro). Like wearing the ultimate summer sunset on your outfit. All eyes on you any room you enter. Especially vibrant when combined with cognac brown leather shades and some gold jewelry.

Leopard has almost become a neutral and mixing prints is getting more casual by the day. And so this season’s most eclectic looks don’t even seem that extraordinary. They’re out there for sure, but they have a certain effortless to them. Like you’d want to wear florals, checks and animals prints in the brightest colors all together any regular business day. Like a veggies printed dress, a flower embroidered jacket, flower shaped sunnies and green glitter socks (Dolce  & Gabbana) make up for the perfect grocery shopping attire. Like an oversized kimono over a Manga printed dress combined with the frizziest coupe (Vivienne Westwood) work perfectly for a dinner date. No holding back; it’s prints and colors in the mix! Eclectic and easy.

Tattered, fringed, cut out, destroyed and deconstructed; this summer’s dress code requires outfits made out of bits and pieces. Like Ann Demeulemeester’s trenchcoat with midriff and shoulder baring parts (worn with half a hat!). Or Helmut Lang’s collection filled with asymmetrical cut ‘n paste styles. And then we have Margiela who created several types of garments out of cut out coats and pieces of decorative fur. Especially lingerie/swimwear looks seemed to exist of leftover fabrics. To keep everything together as one outfit the designer’s go to shade was black. Fringed black fabrics with a touch of tattered; are you in?

Trend Report SS2018: Off shoulder (done differently)

June 19, 2018 by

It’s sexy without wearing a tight dress and high heels. It’s about showing off different body parts that have a high level of sensuality/sexiness. Like the ankle/heel we spoke about shoulders and collar bones work the same kind of magic. So off shoulder dresses go up in the effortless femininity category. Perfect for dinner nights, those loose dresses let you eat as many courses as you like. And perfect for showing off some (beautifully tanned) skin and give that new necklace or pair of earrings some extra spotlight. And you might think: well we’ve seen this season after season. Yet there is a new twist to this trend! Underneath that off shoulder can be a sexy piece of lingerie subtly showing through/popping up. Giambattista Valli gives you the ultimate example. A little lace piece or just a tiny sexy strap giving you a hing of what’s underneath it all. So off shoulder with some li la lingerie shining through.

If we have to name the ultimate streetwear item of this season it would have to be the blazer. It was all over the streets of New York, Milan and Paris. Boxy, oversized tweed blazers in particular. To give a scrunchyy look that formal twist. To top off an elegant look. Or to form the ultimate contrast with this summer’s feather/fur skirt. Rock it as a suit with matching pants and for those hot summer days with no pants at all! Might you need style advice on this Balenciaga inspired piece? Just click through our streetwear images.

Long, short, floral printed, sleeveless, stone washed, deep blue or bleached; the denim jacket comes in many shapes and sizes. And thus giving everyone the opportunity to rock this trend to the fullest. So will it be that oversized vintage Levi’s version? Or are you opting for last year’s Balenciaga jacket? And do you dare to go for some denim on denim? Or will it be the touch touch to your floral summer dress?


Trend Report SS2018: Slingback Style

After midriffs, under boobs, color bones and buttocks the most sexy parts to show off this summer are your ankle and your heel. And so slingbacks and slippers are all the rage the upcoming months. In shiny pink satin or patent red, velvet, fur lined or Swarovski encrusted; looking sexy yet careless and cool was never this easy. Best combined with a statement skirt or a pair of ripped jeans. And the best part? In those kitten heels you’ll easily be able to strut around all day. Good shoes take you good places. There’s no denying that.
