SOME FASHION IDEAS TO START OFF OUR SPRING 2017 ON THE RIGHT FOOT...

Nature and its blessings delight as spring blossoms start to cast their spell on us. It is just time to celebrate rebirths and life in every possible way; and how we look and dress is key to get this spirit going strong. Therefore, here some lovely ideas to do exactly so…

BLOSSOMS

Since blossoms are what we are celebrating; florals in pastels or bright colors become the go-to print right now. From classic to abstract flowers; even mixed-and-matched, will help you embrace every moment looking lovely. You might want to consider modern, edgy cuts and accessories; but do not hesitate if what you really want is going full feminine and romantic!

TOTALLY WHITE

Head-to-toe ensembles in white, or hues close to this color; would have you shine in a delicate and sophisticated way. Try to build eclectic looks by putting together pieces that look high-fashion with easy or irreverent ones. The idea is to bring on your natural great style without apparent effort. Oh, white is tricky; so make sure you are using the right size of clothing and playing with the right proportions.
 
 
SHIRTING
 
A modern and simple way to look fresh and updated while being super comfy, is to let yourself be inspired by today’s shirting. Shirt-dresses and shirts with asymmetric cuts and hems look fabulous on anyone. Not only you will find this trend on racks; but you might own plenty of them you could reuse in new lovely ways. Dress them up or down, and look amazing in these simple, timeless pieces!
 
 
SUPER GRAPHIC
 
Let your creative soul lead the way and experiment with a stand-out mix-and-match of loud prints. Connect some of the hues, motifs or designs of your favorite printed/patterned pieces, and feel free to get super graphic! If you look in the mirror and l love what you put together, there is nothing that should stop you from looking ‘you’, the fashion artist!
 
 
Look for inspiration in everything around!

IDEAS DE MODA PARA EMPEZAR NUESTRA PRIMAVERA 2017 CON BUEN PIE...

La naturaleza y sus bendiciones comienzan a lanzar su hechizo sobre nosotros. Mmmmm... Es tiempo de celebrar el renacer y florecer de absolutamente todo; y qué mejor manera de asumir este espíritu tan maravilloso que a través de como lucimos. Y aquí algunas sugerencias para empezar esta primavera con muy buen pie...

FLORALES

Ya que el florecer es lo que celebramos en grande ahora; entonces los florales han de convertirse en nuestro print #1. Consideremos piezas de  cortes modernos e incluso asimétricos; con estampados en flores clásicas o abstractas, de colores pasteles o tonos vivos, ¡y mucho mix-and-match!

BLANCO TOTAL

Looks de pies a cabeza en blanco, o tonos cercanos al blanco,  nos harán lucir delicadas y muy sofisticadas. Lo ideal es intentar juntar piezas que se vean high-fashion con otras más sencillas e irreverentes. Pero mucho atención, el blanco es un color que debemos usar con cuidado; hemos de usar la talla, el fit y las proporciones correctas.
 
 
CAMISAS Y BLUSAS
 
Una forma simple, moderna y ultra cómoda de vernos frescas y actuales es dejarnos inspirar por las camisas y blusas; especialmente esas que nos hacen pensar en la moda masculina. Los vestidos-blusas y camisas con cortes y ruedos asimétricos se ven espectaculares. No solo encontrarás estas piezas en los racks de las tiendas; también en tu closet; así que ¡sácales provecho! 
 
 
SUPER GRAFICO
 
Déjate llevar por tu espíritu creativo y experimenta con tus prints favoritos, no importa que tan llamativos sean. Conecta los colores y/o formas de distintos estampados para armar looks arriesgados que te hagan sentir muy edgy, pero muy 'tu'.
 
 
¡Dejémonos inspirar por todo lo que nos rodea!

FASHION TRENDS IN PARIS, FALL/WINTER 2017 PRÊT-À-PORTER COLLECTIONS...

Paris…. Mmmm… Don’t we all adore this city?! And, what a better way to close the runways than in the ville lumière, as usual. From classy, elegant and minimal trends to modern, edgy and loud ones; this fabulous diversity of the French fashion is a constant we cannot not stop appreciating and adoring.
 
No doubt there were repetitive trends in the fall/winter 2017 collections in all of the four mayor fashion weeks; such as strong asymmetry (especially on necklines and hems), artsy vibes, feminine bucolic airs, glamorous silhouettes, transparent dresses, florals and stand-out prints, bows, knots, ruffles, deconstruction, bohemian charm, ethnicity, black leather, eclecticism… But the French-stablished houses always have something more to add to enrich this list. So, here some delightful trends to fall for…
 
ABSOLUTE WHITE
 
Lovely head-to-toe white ensembles were really popular. Their simple but precious charm resulted from beautiful strategic layering; asymmetry or perfect minimalism. (Giambattista Valli, Akris, Chanel)
 
 
ULTRA HIGH BOOTS
 
A popular element, taken from vintage archives of the 60s & 70s fashion, were the over-the-knee boots. Bohemian but chic and stylish; they looked absolutely gorgeous mostly with short dresses and long ones with sexy high-slits. (Andrew Gn, Dior, Isabel Marant)
 
 
FULL TEXTURE
 
Artsy textures in a wide range of materials and playful mixes achieved through patchwork, paneling, fringes, feathers, 3D motifs and especially ultra-rich ruffles of wonderful volume; were shown on fabulous looks as they spoke out desirable edginess and irreverence. (Alexander McQueen, Sacai, Balmain)
 
 
METALLIC DRESSES
 
Beautiful metallic dresses in paillettes, lames, silks, jerseys… Showing off bright sensuality and pizzazz had their big moment on the runways. Short, midi, or long; curve-hugging or a bit loose; they caused total fascination. (Redemption. Mugler, Rochas)
 
 
ON POINT MASCULINITY
 
An on point masculinity was very much embraced; as it was magnificently seen in menswear-inspired tailoring, cuts and details. There were fabulous suits in plaid, glen check, twill, herringbone and other beautiful wools, that transmitted wonderful character and strength. (Saint Laurent, Off-White, Paco Rabanne)
 
 
THE COAT-DRESS
 
Gorgeous coat-dresses; long, midi or over-the-knee, satisfied those souls thirsty for sophistication and ladylike panache; a must-have that would fit any body type and could perfectly be taken from daytime to date-night. (A.P.C, Alexis Mabille, Anne Sofie Madsen)
 
 
COLORFUL VOLUMINOUS FURS
 
A superb display of colorful and voluminous furs (hopefully faux), created a delightful excitement that was undeniable once they were moving on the runways. Stand-out furry details and trims, stolas, jackets, coats; and even skirts accompanying elegant suits, dresses and separates created or completed fantastic ensembles. (Leonard, DROME, Shiatzy Chen)
 

THE VERY HIGH SLIT
 
Yes, we have seen it over and over; and it cannot look more fresh and updated! We might be calling the ultra-high slit the forever on-trend trend; because it is; and we adore it! All the sensuality, sophistication and femininity can be summarized in this absolutely extraordinary cut. Now and forever it is ours to enjoy! (Y Project, Elie Saab, Valentin Yudashkin)
 
 
Now we have got plenty to get inspiration from! So, let's keep it going... Yeah!

TENDENCIAS DE MODA EN LAS PASARELAS DE PARIS, PRÊT-À-PORTER OTOÑO/INVIERNO 2017...

Adoramos Paris... Mmmm… Y qué mejor manera de cerrar las grandes semanas de la moda para Otoño/Invierno 2017 que en la ville lumière, como de costumbre. Desde tendencias clásicas y muy elegantes hasta arriesgadas e irreverentes; la diversidad propuesta por las casas de moda establecidas en Paris nos mantendrán profundamente inspiradas.

Aquí algunas de ellas...

BLANCO ABSOLUTO
 
Bellos looks en blanco absoluto de pie a cabeza fueron muy populares. A través del layering, la asimetría o el minimalismo; la simplicidad del blanco iba impregnada de bello encanto. (Giambattista Valli, Akris, Chanel)
 
 
BOTAS ULTRA ALTAS
 
Un fabuloso complemento, tomado de los archivos de los años 60 y 70 fueron las botas ultra altas; muchas de ellas arruchadas. Estas acompañaron perfectamente a vestidos cortos y trajes largos que asomaban piernas. Uffff... (Andrew Gn, Dior, Isabel Marant)
 
 
TEXTURAS
 
Las texturas ricas y artísticas se vieron por doquier en una amplia diversidad de materiales, mezclas y técnicas como el patchwork, flecos, plumas, motivos 3D y faralaos abundantes. (Alexander McQueen, Sacai, Balmain)
 
 
VESTIDOS METALICOS
 
Espectaculares vestidos en telas metálicas; lentejuelas, lames, sedas, jersey... Iban derrochando pura sensualidad sobre las catwalks. Los trajes con mucho brillo; cortos, midi o largos; abrazando las curvas femeninas o con holgura causaron total sensación. (Redemption. Mugler, Rochas)
 
 
PERFECTA MASCULINIDAD
 
Trajes tipo sastre inspirados en el wardrobe masculino inyectaron dosis maravillosas de clase, elegancia y carácter. (Saint Laurent, Off-White, Paco Rabanne)
 
 
EL VESTIDO-ABRIGO
 
Sensacionales trajes tipo abrigo; largos, a media pierna o sobre la rodilla alimentaron los aires de moda sofisticada y atemporal. Definitivamente estas son piezas para llevarnos del día a la noche, mientras lucimos impecables. (A.P.C, Alexis Mabille, Anne Sofie Madsen)
 
 
PIELES LLENAS DE COLOR
 
Un display maravilloso colmado de muchos colores en pieles voluminosas; como detalles claves o en estolas, abrigos, vestidos y faldas; llenaron inevitablemente de emoción al publico. ¡Bellísimas! (Leonard, DROME, Shiatzy Chen)
 

PIERNA AL DESNUDO
 
El clásico y ultra sensual corte alto que deja ver una pierna estuvo muy, pero muy presente en las colecciones de moda parisina; un elemento atemporal para sacarle provecho y adorar eternamente. (Y Project, Elie Saab, Valentin Yudashkin)
 
 
Ahora tenemos mucho de donde inspirarnos...
