2015 has been a beautiful, and ever so controversial year. Here are my top moments:
1. Designer Departures
This current trend of designers leaving/getting let go from brands is something that I definitely remember 2015 by (assuming this trend stays in 2015). I mean, Raf Simons leaving Dior (eek), Alexander Wang and Balenciaga parting ways (no comment), and Alber Elbaz getting fired from Lanvin (terrible) which is only the peak of the major changes happening. At least this: the behind-the-scenes of the fashion world will never bore us!
2. Zoolander and Hansel for Valentino
We were all watching. We all freaked out.
3. Details and Lucky printed their last issues
Two great magazines, both had great runs. They've both provided us with endless inspiration over the years, and in Lucky's case, it helped us through some high-school-fashion-crisis'. It is an odd thing, seeing magazines you consider to be stand staples stopping print. But this is the times we live in, and we need to accept it.
4. More Goodbyes
Every year we lose some awesome brands and designers, sadly. But this year was especially harsh. We lost some of my major favorites: Jonathan Sanders to name-drop. And those are some major names... A bit sad, though this is how the business world works (and yeah, fashion is just that sometimes).
5. Hello again, Gucci
There was some change at the end of last year, a reminder, and when Alessandro Michele took over - well, it wasn't love at first sight. But it grew on me since January, so much so that if I were to make a big designer purchase in 2016, the chance is *very* hight it'll be Gucci. The fresh take on the classic brand is me falling in love with it all over again.
So, what made your list? Do share.
And have a brilliant, stunning, and extra chic 2016 xx
