Blanket coats and capes are coming big time next fall, with the latter as a personal favourite, and taking inspiration from Sain’t Laurent’s pop-princess-silhouettes, the hunt is on!
Seriously crushing on Stella McCartney’s A/W-14 knitted creations, knits awesomeness I’d say, and if knitwear didn’t peak this season I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be one of next falls major trends (Céline too!). For those of you talented and creative knitters out there, here are your next DIY projects!
If there was one collection I was really looking forward to this season it had to be this one, Nicholas Ghesquière’s first collection for Louis Vuitton. After being a fan of Ghesquière work over the years at Balenciaga, it’s great to see him putting his signature stamp on Louis Vuitton, whom I bet btw, will get a whole new audience and consumers onboard from now on, sorry Marc Jacobs.
See the whole collection at style.com.
Curious to see what next fall might look like, and by that I mean silhouettes, pieces and styling tip that perhaps at first glance don’t make you want to jump the roof, but when the time gets there, pretty much tick all the boxes you want to channel the next season. From my own experience Pheoebe Philo has this effect on people, sneaking into our unconsciousness, myself included.
For the A/W collection I’m personally very happy the vibrant coloured spray prints are gone (they were short lived anyway), and we’re back to the minimal and wearable Celine we all known. Key pieces are knitted tunics, flared legs, coats-coats-coats, feathers and earpieces, and that twisted hair bun is already on!
Yesterday H&M Studio, the new name for H&M’s seasonal collection of key pieces, presented it’s autumn 2014 show at Grand Palais in Paris. Loads of wearable, femasculine glam pieces on budget, that will be available in stores worldwide from September 4, yeah!
Victoria Beckham and team have certainly moved on from figure-hold-in-dresses, and has delivered one of my favourite collections from NYFW so far. Season after season the direction has slowly moved towards the effortless fe-masculine Phoebe Philo-way with a tiny touch of Dries, and this crossing is finding it’s way right up to my street, yum!
Last week I had the pleasure to go on a quick trip to BFW to see Lala Berlin‘s A/W 14 show which was right up my alley. Urban street wear, knits and prints in gorgeous fabrics with the right amount of attitude and the styling was nailed to a tee!
PS: The coat and the perfect pair of loose white leather pants I wore on the day were Lala Berlin SS14.
