Everybody Is At Least A Little Into Fashion #ss18

 

The things that first come to my mind when thinking of this fall’s fashion weeks for spring/summer 2018 might be the things you might want – hopefully – to have in your mind when talking over dinner tonight about the world, fate, work, passion, movies, books, style or fashion – hopefully – without the burden of ever being a fashion victim.

The more we know, the more we realise how much more there is to know is what they say, right?

Sometimes enjoying fashion feels wrong, yet at other times playing with it feels necessary just for the sake of playing and our brains. There is no prescription for how we’re supposed to act, think or do, so each of us can simply rely on what each of us feels based on intuition and knowledge.

So tonight, you and your friends. Dinner. Maybe some of them know, maybe some of them don’t, but you here reading this are about to find out. Because you are special, we all are and – hopefully – the friends you hang out with get you and are on the same page with you, unlike the lady who interviewed Jim Carrey during New York fashion week. The shock might have scared her and that’s why all the ***faces*** while Jim Carrey was just being himself and expressing in his own way what he felt like ***no faces***. Ultimately, we all kind of get what he sais, each of us just chooses whatever it is each of us wants to see or believe in.

So. Hello!

Pierpaolo Piccioli proved at Valentino once again that if you stay true to who you are and, therefore, do exactly what you feel like, in spite of trends, trending models or multi-million-followers Instagram accounts, you can reinvent the ordinary to make it extraordinary. Sort of the little things which are never little. Or simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.

That you can actually make love that can be shared with the world.

Renaissance princesses with a twist. Translucent and sparkling dresses. Sportswear with pumps. Sequins. Fireworks! Millennial pink which slowly but surely turns into the timeless black. Or red, or white. Or the ’80s – always in for those embracing the disco ease, the dancing, the spirit – I wanted to get back something of the glamour of the eighties that Mr. Valentino did so well, Pierpaolo said.

Grace Jone’s soundtrack is as strong as Piccioli’s creations.

Furthermore, his walk at the end of the show was just as elegant as the collection. He simply, smilingly and nonchalantly walked into the airy Parisian courtyard through the first rows, hugged Mr. Valentino and climbed up the leader as if preparing for the lift off. The Spring Summer 2018 collection had been partly inspired by the perspective of the Apollo moon landing, in which the earth was photographed from space and revealed in all its natural wonder, as Piccioli said according to vogue.com.

Emmanuelle Alt throws the most disco parties of them all. She is who we have always believed she has been. A fun, loving life, party girl. 

Mica Argañaraz looks cool in anything she wears, depending on the show. She’s got a talent to be in any character she wants to without making a fuss out of it and lucky for it to be mastered by the coolest designers around. Check it out:

The frenzy over Thom Browne. Everybody’s stories and instastories.

Where some designers submerge themselves in the real world, Browne has always posited fashion as fantasy, dreaming bigger, pushing the eye to places it didn’t know existed. At a time when the world feels like a pretty bleak place indeed, his brand of escapism is more appealing than ever. It only makes sense then, that Browne should close his show with a life-size unicorn puppet instead of a bride – the mythical creature is surely his spirit animal. The fashion world could use more of his kind. Chioma Nnadi at vogue.com.

The trend that seems to have transitioned from the streets of #fashionweeks to our telephones and desktops is the trousers suits. The bigger and bolder the better.

Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga continues to mock the fashion victims who would wear absolutely anything at any cost (literally) as long as it’s right from the catwalks and would not think it through. Maybe they just feel and that is all right as long as they are happy. Anyway, Gvasalia’s incisive, yet chic sort of sense of humour was all over the collection.

The coolest things at the show, though: 1. the models and 2. the fact that They [items] are joined, so you can wear them one way or the other as you will (Demna Gvasalia).

Céline is céline as always.

Calvin Klein for having Kaia Gerber on the lips of the whole planet.

Prada‘s new shape of sunglasses for Spring Summer 2018.

The colours at Stella McCartney and Stella McCartney.

The jumpsuits at Emanuel Ungaro.

The Vera Wang SS18 pictures that very mysteriously walked through the feed of my Instagram.

Old school cool at Isabel Marant.

Louis Vuitton for having Alicia Vikander as their icon and as of the #pfw Emma Stone also. A Vogue editor summed up the SS collection though as “Hamilton goes jogging”. The truth is that the robes and the bags were striking.


The neon socks at Miu Miu.

👇🏻 at Marni.

And yes, Donatella Versace‘s blow up of Instagram. Phshhh!

Have a good Fall WInter 2017, everybody!

And a fun night all right! Wink.

Isabel Marant Is Toujours All About The Girl

 

Is there anything sexier than a woman feeling good in her own skin? Not to show off or something, but to rather throw herself a little party on her own for herself, in her own soul, as she walks, speaks, laughs?

This is precisely what Isabel Marant stands for and does it with such an ease! Just like the ease she wishes for the ladies to have when in her patterns. Well, salut, Isabel! A girl might not know who Isabel Marant is, but a girl will, most certainly, feel something genuine, honest, yet twistedly sexy the moment she will put a piece of Marant’s design on.

It might be about the French je ne sais quoi or about her enthusiastic smile.

Her full presence in the moment of present.

When a lady wears her design, it will not ever be about the design only. It will be about the girl. The woman. Because Isabel seems to toujours think from our perspectives – of the ladies’ – through herself.

“Now what would make me feel cool and sexy?” 

“Hmm, let’s see. A little bit of waist, a ruffle here, a ruffle there, a little bit of edge… Yes, let’s put some glitter on! Ooh-la-la! Party, oui! J’aime le party!”

“This ’80s spirit, oui!”

“It’s in fashion, it’s current, yet me, yet timeless!” 

“I could pass this on to my daughter!”

“C’est trés cool!”

“C’est magnifique!”

And very down to earth at the same time. As opposed to Isabel’s monologue above totally made up.

It’s not just models walking on the catwalk, us awing at the sight of them, sighing, seizing the art and then putting it on some pedestal or something and sigh some more. It’s us seeing them clothes, wanting them, knowing there is maybe the slightest possibility of us having them and already imagining ourselves dancing in them.

Anywhere, anytime, anyhow.

Because why would anyone want clothes that one wouldn’t be able to dance in? Marant is not a lover of tights – wonder why? – but will, certainement, make the ladies look not only hot, but elegant, yet comfortable and sexy by some endless legs, cinched waists, ease in movement and slouchy proportions (surprisingly, oui).

Spring is here so it takes something truly outstanding to make oneself dream of anything that is going to happen starting Fall sort of speaking, since it is the Fall/Winter 2017 trends we’re talking here about. In Paris, #pfw. It makes us to look forward to Fall – you thought this quoi would never be possible! – and to crave for Paris.

But Fall is far, far away. We could meet up in Paris until then, wear high wasted trousers and carry some glittery socks in our pockets for the fun nights in our glittery sandals.

Is anyone having a celebration on their own now, too? For the glittery trend which is trés welcome to be #trending right now. Some of us might have been having a blast wearing the glitter all along, but now, oh, now we have the excuse – if we ever needed one! – for now it’s certified. Chin-chin!

And if, by now, socks under sandals might have been a necessity in order to stay warm, now socks under sandals are definitely a trend. Tout à fait, Isabel made it official. She knows it. She feels it.

She’s a lady – playing – just like us.

Free-spirited.

Passionate.

In a world where your true self, most beautiful self, is going to not only wear the prettiest clothes, but also dance till sunrise.

In Paris?

#pfw These Boots Weren’t Made Just For Walking Oh No. No, No, No, No, No, No, No!

It is Anthony Vacarello‘s second collection with Saint Laurent during Paris Fashion Week and it is the second time around that all the girls freak out over a specific item straight from the runway, creating a fuss very well previously planned by the marketing department.

This is a thing brands started to do lately, have you noticed? Working on a single piece that will blow up the internet and not necessarily from the sales’ point of view, but rather of the name, oh! The name is on the lips of every fashionista.

The pieces? More on the lips than on the body.

The heart from s/s ’17 was somewhere around 10k, the boots from f/w ’17 have to be somewhere in the near vicinity. Of euros that is. But after the previous “somewheres”, here come the “anywheres”. Because you could go almost anywhere wearing them.

People around you will be so amazed by them, that you will be able to – in fact! – wear the boots with your pajamas and no one will tell anything anyway. Because here comes the anything and the anyway. You must literally don’t give a fuck while wearing these boots. The model wearing them doesn’t fo sho’. Give a fuck.

She seems not to care too much about wearing them, either. Which is pretty sad – considering- but maybe she’s not that fond of the styling and that’s why the face. I would – probably, the slightest probability of the “probably” itself – be the same if I were to wear this motha’ fuckin’ boots and then the most boring skinny, shiny (and leathery?) jeans along with a silver, shimmering sweater to match my… My, my! Disco boots?! Oh no! No, no, no, no, no, no.

But maybe she just doesn’t give a fuck. She has the boots (even if just for 10 minutes, not 10k) and the rest is… Whatever! Because here comes a “whatever”, too.

And an anyhow. Anyhow, these boots are made for dancing. You can not wear them boots and not dance.

My mind is dancing as we speak now. See? This is the effect this kind of clothes and shoes have on oneself. It makes one’s eyes roll and take the shape of the heart. Precisely the shape of the former Saint Laurent “it” piece.

Eat the heart and dance.

Wear the the heart, be the heart!

Whatever!

Just dance!
