New York fashion week is on! Finally! And my guessing about the skirt being it for spring 14 was absolutely right. They are everywhere, in every shape and I must say I’ve never seen so many beautiful prints and dresses before. I’m amazed and happy to see more than just black and minimalism. Even though it’s not my style, it inspires, and that’s what fashion is all about. Some styling with the prints, like at Delpozo is just magical. Tibi is another New York brand known for prints and perfect everyday styling. “This is the culmination of things. We’ve been stripping the clothes back to make them clean and minimal, and now that this platform has been set, we added on to it and brought in more femininity.” Tibi designer Amy said about the collection.
The Joseph Altuzarra woman is truly a strong woman. Sexy, confident and well dressed. I’m loving this effortlessness collection. The styling, once again, magical! And the skirts were everywhere.
Speaking of a sexy woman. Victoria Beckham sure knows how to design minimalistic, gorgeous dresses. And just like Victoria Beckham, Helmut Lang is inspired by the minimalistic 90′s.
Two of my other favorites has shown as well. Rag & bone and Alexander Wang. Let’s start with Rag & Bone. Who is still all about their urban cool style, but for spring 14 they came a bit softer, and crispier, with elegant slipdresses (another big trend for spring 14). Rag & Bone presented a much more feminine collection, which is perfection if you ask me.
Last but not least for this weekend is Alexander Wang, the great Alexander Wang. Just like the other New York brands he was inspired by the 90′s. “That was the height of me in high school, reading and obsessing over [magazines] and being a fashion geek,” he said. Alexander Wang wanted to design a fun collection, and not so serious. Thats why the iconic logo is printed on some of the tops. The classic Wang sport influenced pieces, and the leather are of course there. I feel like the collection is a bit more flirty and feminine than before, that’s perhaps because of the short skirts. A really really well made collection.
You have to watch this video, I’m amazed. How they dance and show of the bags, brilliant and so so beautiful. The Nina Ricci Ballet bags are the perfect size and the design is classic and elegant. My favorite is this wool one.
Whyred is one of my favorite swedish brands. Why? Well, Roland stays true to his brand and his style and I find that unique. I don’t own much by Whyred, somehow I never find the beautiful pieces in store, maybe they sell out but there is only one show to talk about from yesterday, and that’s Whyred. I love Pollock, and his art, so it’s no surprise I love the red print for the spring 13 collection. It’s magical. Inspired by Ingemar Bergman’s movie ”Through A Glass Darkly”, the collection is simply beautiful and one that I will never forget. I really hope I will get my hands on this print. I must say wow. This is the best one so far.
Stockholm fashion week is on and since I’m not there I will post about the collections that I like. I just saw some snaps from the Whyred show tonight and it looks amazing, more on that tomorrow.
Yesterday J. Lindeberg presented a collection inspired by an early morning in july. Plenty of gold tones and and nice jackets were seen as well as what seems to be spring’s biggest trend, tailored sports wear.
Dagmar is a brand that I’ve started to like lately, I love their way of being innovative and very classic. They feel international in some way. For spring 14 they mixed sober colors with black leather, always a winner if you ask me. I love love love the styling!
I had to post these bohemian dresses and caftans by Hunkydory. What a dream for summer! Simply beautiful, a collection inspired by the 60′s.
Frja Beha Erichsen is not doing any fall runway shows, she told style.com “At the moment, I am not planning to do any shows this Fall. I wouldn’t say I would never do a show again, though.” Instead, she is focusing on teaming up with Mother Denim for a capsule collection. It ranges in price from $145 to $300. The designs, which include chambray shirts and skinny jeans, were a natural fit for the casual dresser: “I felt like doing something I wear all the time was much more in my power, because, clearly, I am not a designer.”
It sure looks good.
This summer in New York I bought my first piece by Maje. A black silk skirt which goes perfectly with everything in my closet. Maje is a french brand I always liked, but never got anything. I feel like you have to buy the full look. Because, it’s all about that. The whole Maje look, it’s cool, it’s french and it’s wearable. I can’t say no to any look from the fall lookbook.
Raf Simons first ever couture Collection and the expectations were sky high and I knew for sure that I would not be dissapointed, and so it was. Raf Simons Always leaves me speachless and with couture I knew it would be magic.
The Collection was inspired by the couture woman, how Beautiful is that? Sporty american, asian interesting Cuts and fabrics and for africa there were plenty of color (and african inspired jewelery). What about europé then? Well, of course the parisienne and the history of the house.
We saw a more modern couture Collection by Raf. Fresh and almost sexy, which is new for the more classics of couture. Off the shoulder dresses and slits are examples of this. I am blown away and this makes the fact that Raf Simons is one of our masters even more true.
“My main aim is to bring a sense of reality back to haute couture,” Simons said in the media release. “This collection is about focusing on the reality of the woman herself, including her culture and personality; it is not the reality of just wearing the clothes but how a woman chooses to wear them; the liberation of choice and reflecting who she actually is.”
