Favorite Looks from Days 2 & 3 of NYFW

with one comment

I’ll cut right to chase.  So far it has been all about the whites, sheers and school boy collared shirts.  Could we get any more minimalist? Probably not, but minimalist is one of my favorite styles, so I am pretty satisfied with the spring 2011 collections, so far. Now onto the real business…

Is mixing prints still a trend? Whatever, even if it isn’t, this outfit is simple, comfortable, and chic which are all perfect for resort wear.  The black and white nautical stripes matched with a brown belt is a great way to play around with neutrals.

I have to admit I have a cropped tee obsession so when I came across this cropped chemise, I died.  Chemises are clean but Doo. Ri managed to make them both clean and hip.  Matched with a wide-legged pant, this look is more than perfect.

To me, this Ports 1961 dress is the definition of chic steaming from its modesty.  A little Faye Dunaway maybe? I also love the hair and make-up!

This Costello Tagliapietra dress is impeccably cut and wonderfully flowy.

For a little more edge while remaining to be minimal, this Rag & Bone sheer skirt maxi dress is fabulous.  The color combination of neutrals remind me of my mother, which is a good thing in this case.

Rag & Bone

With one of the most talked about new designers showing early on in fashion week, picking just one of his looks was not enough.  I narrowed it down to my two favorite looks.  The first being a powerful cream short suit matched with the most stunning feminine black bow-tie blouse.  The second is a beautiful cocktail dress, the one I would most want to own/wear out of the whole collection.

The O.M.G. moment of the 2&3 days came from none other than Christian Siriano.  I can’t say the O.M.G., in this case, implies anything positive.  Honestly, what was he thinking? Why the huge ruffles, almost double the model’s width, in an florescent red that I don’t think even existed before this dress? Even on a model this dress isn’t flattering.  Talk about extravagance!

Favorite Looks from Day 1 of NYFW

Below are some of my favorite looks from Day 1 of NYFW.  I don’t think an intro is necessary in this post other than, I couldn’t be more excited.

I love this Lyn Devon look because it is both feminine and masculine at the same time.  The cropped trouser is a spring take on the fall trouser trend.

This look makes me picture a modern-day GatsbyI love the cropped cardigan with a maxi skirt.  The volume created by the hat is to die for and it is organic too.

The styling of the outfit below is fabulous.  Who doesn’t love black and white?  The layering of the skirt and the belt add a tough edge to white blouse.

Sachin + Babi

The willowy white boho dress with rockin’ boots and a huge collared jacket make you really think that mixing and matching does work.  I totally picture a model strutting her stuff in Stockholm in this outfit.

Nicholas K

And for the O.M.G. moment of the day, Nicholas K styled his collection with a belly dancer belt inspiration! See below what I mean!  It is tied the exact same way and I am crazy for the inspiration coming from my roots.

Giovanna Battaglia.  The name is enough for the fashion blogging world.  You’ll find her in every fashion blog and I had to be included.  The Italian former Dolce & Gabanna model is now a fashion editor at L’Uomo Vogue (Italian Men’s Vogue).  She is even dating Carine Roitfeld’s son Vladmir.  But what is most important of all, her sense of style.  She somehow looks chic, classic, trendy and unique always and all at once.  I love this colorblock outfit because it is summery, girly and at the same time very professional chic.  

 

She is simply a fashion icon.  Garance Doré, one of my favorite bloggers, wisely said ” It’s just that Giovanna can wear whatever she wants and she still stays Giovanna. Always, and never the same, with her hair down or up, in a parka or evening gown, never a fault in her taste, she is the incarnation of the famous adage that we are all so tired of hearing, mostly just because it’s true: Fashion comes and goes. Style stays.” – Garance Dorè

 

For sure you’ll see more of Giovanna to come. BE INSPIRED!

Kate Moss for TopShop

The Kate Moss for Topshop summer collection has finally been launched!  Above is a video of Kate Moss modeling the collection.  I love the soft lighting continuously used in ads this season.  For those of you who have been waiting in anticipation, the collection is light and breezy with a lot of high-waisted feminine shorts.  The collection consists of more than 80 pieces. She played with fabrics such as lace, suede, silk and more.  Below I created 3 outfits from the collection.  What do you think?  Are you as excited as I am?

If you’re a fashion fanatic you wait for the Chanel Resort collection held in St. Tropez this year.  With more than 80 outfits to choose from your bound to find something you’d fall in love with.  Karl Lagerfeld has done it again; BRAVO!  The setting was gorgeous with models coming onto the runway in speed boats and Georgia May Jagger was escorted on a motorbike by Sébastien Jondeau.

The extensive collection constisted of pastel printed resort wear, pastel colorblocks, white romantic dresses, hippie rocker chic outfits and more.  The collection tailored, in my opinion, to everyone.  What do you think?  Be inspired.

I am simply in love with these upcoming items.  The one piece is so Chanel yet modern and perfect for the riveria.  The maxi printed silk dress looks like a cool cover-up, maybe perfect for Nikki Beach.  The blue jumpsuit, I imagine wearing it to dinner at the Andrea beach.

Look of the Week: Hung on Hanneli

leave a comment »

This week I decided to feature Hanneli Mustaparta, a model, MTV VJ and fashion blogger, who hailed the fashion world from Norway.  I came across the tall beautiful Norwegian while reading the Vogue bloggers feature and that is when my obsession with her blog began.  

Since the Coachella Festival was held this past week and many cool vintage outfits take over the blogosphere, I chose to pick my favorite Coachella look. Hanneli’s look for the festival was the definition of spring fab yet somehow working well with the “hippie” look of the festival fans.  Here, Hanneli is wearing Catherine Hammel shorts, Nina Jarebrink Shoes, Selima shades and vintage Venice tourist scarf.  I also found the second picture, on Style.com, where the model is sporting almost the exact same attire, but instead of a cashmere sweater an American Apparel tank top and she switched her Nina Jarebrink bag for a Mulberry.  I love how the outfit is all cream’s yet the textures and shapes add style.  Be inspired.

Ps.  I decided to add this picture as well, another Coachella attendee that I thought was pretty cool.  I just couldn’t resist to keep it to just one!  I love the Catherine Hepburn/Brigitte Bardot look she is going for.  AWESOME VINTAGE ROMPER!
