Runway Report: Delpozo | New York Fall 2016 RTW

By

Joeph Font took us on a magical journey through graphic greatness. I love how the show started with a very Asian inspired kimono style jacket with an oversized OBI belted waist. The next garment morphed into a more exaggerated version of the predecessor. Each outfit throughout the collection evolved into the next. Many of the outfits were accessorized with opera length gloves, just blooming with flowers. They emerged out of the hyper-wide sleeves, providing a…

Runway Report: Reem Acra | New York Fall 2016 RTW

By

Reem Acra’s Fall 2016 RTW show was sheer brilliance! And when I say sheer, I mean most every garment was sheer in someway, shape or another. The best characteristics of the Courtiers of Europe, The Show Girls, and The Roaring Twenties Flappers all combined into one of the most sexy, breathtakingly beautiful, and impeccably detailed collections. Art Deco was clearly the inspiration here. The Art Deco influence was seen in a multitude of Geometric shapes,…

Alberta Ferretti | SS 2016

Runway Report: Alberta Ferretti | Milan Spring 2016 RTW

By

If this is what happens when a Designer goes into the desert, has a Vision Quest, and comes out birthing a hugely creative product, then I think every designer should follow suit! Retro-Desert could have been the title of this collection. The inspiration- The Desert, served as a literal backdrop for Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2016 RTW. The film of the Desert rolling during the show combined with the chanting music was hypnotic and took us…

Taxi Shoes

By

It’s no mystery that I love platform shoes. I’m convinced I was a Geisha, or a Courtesan, or both in my other lives. Platform shoes are super comfortable; I can run around the city streets in them, I can stand in them all day long, and they transform me from 5’2″ to upwards 5’7″ instantly. Now do you see why I’m in love with platforms? That being said…of course being a Fashionista, I love a…

Cropped: A story of season-less trousers

By

Cropped: A story of season-less trousers Cropped pants can be worn year round when done correctly. These Theory wide legged cropped trousers give this ultra-feminine top from Simone Rocha a fun edge. One way to wear cropped pants in Fall and Winter is to wear them with fitted tall boots. These Cole Haan Suede stretch knee high boots almost give the illusion of a tight. Accessorize with gold to add a punch of sparkle. The…

Graphically Great!

By

Graphically Great! This Stella McCartney satin top is graphic and unstructured. Because of the top’s shape, I recommend pairing it with a flat front slim leg trouser. These 3.1 Phillip Lim Core Cropped Pencil Trousers look great with a Sandal such as these by Tibi. The Givenchy Handbag and KUBORAUM LTD FOR _JULIUS Sunglasses both have graphic lines as well.

The polished sleek look is achieved by creating one long line and having accessories that have distinct lines and a touch of metal to accent the black. The top is tailored and fitted, so it seamlessly flows into the pants. Theory is known for their trousers and these continue the long silhouette down to the Alexander Wang boots, which also have a silver metal detail. The Givenchy Cuff can be worn on one or both arms…
