Fashion Month

Fashion Month


 If you’re reading this, then there is a good chance that you’re on social media and you probably know that this past month was fashion month. Fashion Month, the time when anyone who loves the art of high fashion rejoices. Not to mention, it helps cope with back to school and gives me some joy during September and early October. The first main event of New York Fashion Week was Tommy x Gigi, which I extremely enjoyed. Usually celeb or model collaborations just sugar coat stuff they ‘actually’ designed but a majority of these pieces I could see on Gigi if she hadn’t worn a similar style already. I even had the pleasure of meeting her the next day and Gigi was very sweet. Just a couple hours later of our meeting, the Alexander Wang show had began. I always enjoy his shows and I really did love this one, the vibe from the striped pajama shorts (others with lace) gives “early summer morning” vibes. Not to mention the ripped denim and cheetah jackets were spot on. My favorite of NYFW, Victoria Beckham, always hits the mark, especially with the crushed velvet suits, which was major this summer but will continue on through next summer. Let us not forget the bags which were oversized and folded in, and the shoes gave me major rainy spring day vibes in the gorgeous English countryside. My last favorite of NYFW was Elizabeth and James was so stunning- almost too stunning for words. There were structured oversized pants with huge belts, along with gorgeous light weight knit dresses and a dreamy rain coat.

 Not many recognize the true talent presented at LFW, where it’s a mix of new designers and old including Burberry, Mulberry and Topshop. Burberry definitely made the event dreamy in a courtyard with a romantic feel. The real show was on the runway where it was all about gorgeous tapestry dresses and a twist on sweatshirts with a ruffle around the edge on the neck: ruffled turtleneck we can call it. Another favorite was the new bridle bag: it’s a fold over bag in a roundish shape with gold hardware (basically to die for). A new favorite, Peter Pilotto, made me want to be on vacation instantly with the soft looks showcasing embroidered pineapples and palm trees. A look I loved was the off the shoulder dress, which was another trend during summer that will continue through next summer.  

  Milano, home to Gucci, Max Mara, Versace and Prada- some of the best that make up Milan Fashion Week. Though I wasn’t too impressed with Gucci, I definitely loved Max Mara. Palm tree patterns on jackets and jumpsuits were major along with pencil skirts and sun visors. Prada had fur fluff on the ends of trousers and the bells of shirts. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the patterns of plaid. A next love is Dolce and Gabbana, it can be a little repetitive with clothing that makes you want to be at an Italian Villa. This time I felt the life of Spain showing through. I can tell there is major inspiration of the matadors and their gorgeous wear while fighting bulls. A favorite of mine was a stunning black off- the-shoulder dress. Milan Fashion Week was good but the main event is next.

 They say save the best for last for this is true when it comes to Paris Fashion Week. I love when bloggers and models emerge onto the city of love. My absolute favorite part is seeing the Snapchats and Instagrams of the Eiffel Tower starting at eight and for every hour on the hour, the twinkling lights that are oh so recognizable shine through the Parisian night. Yves Saint Laurent stole the show already on the first day, their new creative director, Anthony Vaccarello, aced his start to the brand’s new era to perfection. It was in small details such as the heel of a high heel the YSL logo and the gorgeous pairs of denim not to mention the leather jackets. Chloé is always a favorite with always playful, feminine fabrics. Effortless, so effortless only a Parisian woman could pull off this look that well. Chloé went in a different direction with their bags unlike Victoria Beckham and Celine (whose bags were oversized), Chloé took on an undersized bag with gold hardware.

 New fresh faces at PFW, with the addition of a new creative director is Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri. The new look reminded me of Valentino (but that’s okay), and not forgetting her white t-shirt with the words “WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS” (yes) went viral. Her first collection and she’s already making a statement. Céline has a special place in everyone’s hearts, with their abstract way of thinking. Nobody except Céline can make oversized jackets with cropped flare leather pants look good. I can’t even get into how much I adore Céline shoes and bags; we could be here all day. My last favorite of PFW was in fact Stella McCartney; she hit it out the ball park. The look was cinched cropped trousers. PFW ended for me when her models danced down the runway happily. And that concluded another great fashion month.
