SPRING 2017 | Lanvin

Paris Fashion Week


Ok, I was totally saddened by Alber Elbaz and Lanvin parting ways, but I feel like the house did make up for the breakup with assigning the creative director position to the next best thing to Elbaz: Bouchra Jarrar. She's amazing, and you can reflect that in her debut collection for Lanvin. 

Bouchra started with painting the all-black Lanvin office white, and she brought that same tactic to the new collection itself. Whereas Elbaz was the dark romance, Bouchra is the light; Elbaz always held shows at night, and here we have a Lanvin showing midday. 

As a Bouchra fan, I love this collection. There is a beautiful breeze that filled each garment with such light and beauty, which had me leaving the livestream of this show like whoa. And OMG is that Sasha Pivoravova? I miss you Sasha! Do more runway please!


Thoughts on this new Lanvin? xx

SPRING 2017 | No. 21

No. 21 RTW
Spring 2017
Milan Fashion Week

Even the most feminine collections are designed with the power woman in mind, and that's amazing. This collection features looks which are tough, sporty, delicate, frilly, soft, light, and dark. Yeah, it's a lot in one collection, but it works so, incredibly well. With such a simple color palate, this collection is anything but boring as it features pieces ranging from sequined skirts and feather trimmings to tulle anoraks and printed silks. The layered silk fringed skirt over a lace dress and a uber-chic fanny pack is just that perfect look for the woman on the go. I love it. xx

SPRING 2017 | Gucci

Marc Jacobs brought us to a 90s nightclub, but here Alessandro Michele has taken the vintage nightclub scene a bit farther back... Enter the most exquisite nightlife scene of the late 70s, early 80s where the gowns, hats, coats, blazers, bags, and shoes are as flashy and vibrant as ever. 
This was a glittery, disco bonanza with some of the best embellishments, embroidery work, and applique we've seen yet this season. But for the real review, check out Gucci Mane brilliantly reviewing this collection here. xx

Laid back, yet still posh. Victoria's new collection is so laid back, it's street style gold. It's down to earth, super slouchy, and still so chic. Can we call this the west coast's influence? xx

SPRING 2017 | Marc Jacobs

New York Fashion Week


Start streaming the soundtrack of Trainspotting (here), and enter the insanity of Marc Jacobs Spring 2017, closing NYFW with an extra trippy bang this season. Marc channeled the most glamorous rave, as only Marc could. It's the late 80's, early 90's rave scene with styling on point; the multicolored dreads, printed babydolls, and thigh-high platform boots. Yet when you pull this mega collection apart, you'll find yourself running into solid wearable pieces: denim jackets, embellished minidresses, camo prints, and some fantastic handbags (can we confirm this is the Marc by Marc merge influencing the accessories?). 
It feels good to love a Marc Jacobs collection again, and I'm happy to be ending what was a fantastic NYFW season here, with "Born Slippy" happily stuck in my head. 



What's on the agenda for London? 
Tweet me if you're attending! I'd love to watch the shows through you xx

SPRING 2017 | Elizabeth and James

It's all about those leading lines. And it's also all about the Olsen twins' personal style merging into our own (a dream come true, really). I mean, they Olsens are known for their minimalist looks, the layered pieces, the oversized garments, thus explaining this season completely. The fabrics in this collection are all so light, airy, and easy, being one of the selling points of this collection. As someone who lives in a hot desert climate, this collection is a must in my life. Even the suited look has a brilliant ease to it. The vibes are very US meets Europe, in that some pieces had a very French vintage feel to them, while keeping that American sportwear look all the same. Another selling point of this collection is the monochrome; a bit trend this season all around, but the Olsens are already pros in that area. Even the prints and embroidered pieces count as monochrome. And, yeah, monochrome bright pink has never looked this chic, nor has it been OK until this point. xx
