With her long-sleeved silk blouses and tan leather accessories, the Chloe A/W 10-11 clad models took us on a nostalgic trip back to the golden era of the nineteen-seventies. In the decade that popularized bell bottom pants and platform shoes, the 1970’s girl wore blushes of beige with shades of taupe somehow making the all over tan colour palette work.
The bouncy, blown-out Charlie girl is back, bouncier than ever. Wear beige with beige and accesorise with gold accents to ooze sophisticated glamour.
The Fashion Exhibition Who killed the king? is the conceptual interpretation of eight fashion designers which based on the idea of a chess team, show a stage of conspiracy with the common objective of taking the King’s position. Through eight sculpted dresses in black & white (seven figures + the king) the fashion designers have to rethink the fashion design as pure art, far from their functional requirement and based on a different perspective: creating an mounted exhibition with the actual pieces.
Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks has single-handedly revived the sex appeal of porcelain skin, womanly curves — and the bouffant. Here, Hollywood’s new siren reveals her must-haves.
For a few seasons Hermes had been playing with fairy-tale plots and characters while creating ad campaigns. However the new Hermes campaign for Fall/ Winter 2010/ 2011 is something different though no less interesting.
Constance Jablonski is featured in Hermes ad campaign wearing chic leather outfits. She looks like the famous Cat-woman – uber sexy and strong, capable of doing nearly everything to achive her goal. And her aim now is not the revenge or justice but Hermes fashionable pieces.
Constance angles for luxury Hermes bags and rides a horse to get the desired Hermes scarf.
Jeffrey Campbell is a serious style star when it comes down to the shoe department. Season after season we’ve come to rely on the Los Angeles stud for his ridiculously killer kicks that have consistently knocked us off our feet.. And in celebration of his 10th anniversary—we think it is safe to say that he has definitely done it again.
Inspired by life’s daily grind, runway fashion, and vintage flair, Campbell is back with sick styles that have us kickin’ our gladiator sandals to the curb. We are totally ready to vamp up our fall look by stocking up on punk rock clogs, motorcycle boots, and platform boots to rival any ’70s disco queen. At wallet-friendly prices, Campbell’s collection is the perfect cheap thrill.
Amongst the plethora of fashion trends for Summer 2010 you’ll find the season’s new take on military fashion. While heavily influenced by 20th Century army and air force styling, nautical influenced pieces have hardly got a look in. And I’m afraid I’m not here to change that. But for those fashioniser who are nautically inclined, this Summer still has something in store. Don’t think of it as a nautical military trend, however. Rather, it’s the navy and white colour palette, worn as dominant stripes.
The Pieces To Wear
Don’t think of this Summer stripes just as a clothing trend: you can work them into any part of an outfit (just not all at once, please). As you’ll see in the inspiration gallery stripes can dominate an outfit in everything from hats to killer mini-dresses.
They never went out of the fashion scene, but this year the espadrilles are ruling the catwalk podiums and are amazingly the best shoe accessory for the summer.
Forget the sharp or the uncomfortable high heels. The espadrilles are here to remind us there is a comfortable way to step on high platforms and yet, this to be in style.
Even the Hollywood stars like Jennifer Aniston have started to wear espadrilles on high platform, which is a bespoke example that you can’t go wrong by choosing to wear espadrilles.
The specific espadrilles of the season are those that are symbolizing something bold and wild.
The raised heel espadrilles are now in pop colors and moreover, the colors of the summer like red, pink, green, blue and yellow.
Candy colors are also welcome, especially when they are combined with long bohemian dress and a summer hat. Espadrilles with patterns are also pretty much in the trend, especially if the print is leopard.
Espadrilles with floral motifs, such as presented in the collections of TopShop are also a must have of the season. Another trendy collection is the last line of Tom’s shoes.
The designer grabbed the pulse of the summer and presented a whole new vision for the espadrilles. Check out his Navy Stripe Calypso model and don’t miss out the red Newport Cordones.
Sex and the City began as a column that Candace Bushnell wrote for the New York Observer back in 1994.
The snappy vignettes were a mirror held up to a certain type of New Yorker that reflected vanity, lust, loneliness, insecurity, and overwhelming arrogance. Readers thought, ‘Who says and does these things?’
Fascination with Candace’s adventures among the NY singles set led to a book, and then the mega-hit series that focused on characters Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda.
Although there was a distinct lack of ethnic diversity within this line-up, the Fab Four became a touchstone for women and gay men around the planet.
Their words, their actions, their apartments – and most of all, their clothes – caused us to become obsessed, and we couldn’t stop watching for 8 seasons.
Sex and the City touched off a trend towards labelism and massively conspicuous consumerism, and fed the coffers of Manolo Blahnik to bursting.
