Think Pink

October 3, 2016

This has been a confusing fashion month. Between the “see now, buy now, wear now” concept, and all of the designer shake-ups, it’s hard to tell what season it is, and what house the collection is from. With all of the uncertainty, one message came through loud and clear from Paris this weekend: You’ve got to have a pink dress.

While I would hardly call pink the color of the season, it seems that it is de riguour for a dresses. And special ones at that.

At Celine, Phoebe Philo showed a dramatic pepto pink dress with a capelike effect coming from the draped hemline.

For Pierpaolo Piccioli’s first solo collection at Valentino, pink played a major role. Here, a pleated dress gets a bright accent at the neckline.

There were also 1920’s inspired shapes, layered over deeper tones.

In contrast to all the retro fluidity, Piccioli added a shocking pink cape dress, in a more modern and structured cut.

John Galliano went sheer, with this ladylike silhouette shown over matching pink lingerie.

With new designer Gemna Gvasalia of Vetements at the helm, Balenciaga kept it bright with thier modestly cut pink dress, slit up the side and shown over purple spandex boot | pants.

At Givenchy, Riccardo Tischi showed a simply cut hot pink satin dress layered over a sheer tank dress.

Culottes

October 16, 2014

All of the sudden, they’re everywhere…that hybrid between full cut pants, and an easy skirt. They hit anywhere from just below the knee, to just above the ankle, and come in fabrics ranging from leather to fluid silk. Yep, you guessed it; the culotte is back! Reminiscent of the 70’s, the culotte is making a comeback, and the look is more modern than ever.

Today’s culottes are versatile enough to be worn casually with a sweater, or more elegantly with a blazer. Designers have been seeding the idea for a few seasons now, and this fall, the culotte is the “it” silhouette to own.

Gucci’s pre Fall collection in 2011 featured culottes with a chunky cable sweater and boots that looks perfect, several seasons later.

Soft and fluid, or in green leather, culottes are the perfect daytime option to a skirt or trousers.

Send Up a Flare

October 8, 2014

Step away from those skinnies. There is a new silhouette in town, and it’s very flattering.

The recent runways were rife with 70’s references, and designers were inspired by the era creating homages to haute hippies and establishment types alike.

Flare legged silhouettes popped up across continents, elongating legs in a way those rolled to the ankle skinnies never could.

Derek Lam mixed his sleek khakis with a soft lilac leather jacket:

Paul and Joe cut their flares in a whimsical print for a sharply tailored take on the suit:

Acne made the look edgy, with a dare to bare it all vest over flared pants:

Denim flares were seen outside the show venues at Paris Fashion Week:

Happy Endings

March 16, 2011

In a very bold move, French fashion house Christian Dior fired it’s designer John Galliano, just days before the show.
The very talented and flamboyant Mr., Galliano was said to have gotten into a fight in a bar, and made anti-Semitic slurs to other patrons.  He was detained by the Paris police, suspended from his job at Dior, and subsequently fired, when a video proclaiming his love of Hitler was later released.

He was also prohibited from attending the showing of his eponymous John Galliano collection, which Dior’s parent company has controlling interest of.

Amidst threats of boycotts and scandalous press, Dior’ s chairman, Sidney Toledano handled the situation with grace and dignity. He addressed the crowd at the beginning of the show stating that “The heart of the house of Dior beats unseen…it is made up of it’s teams and studios, of seamstresses and craftsman.”

At the end of show, instead of Galliano’s usual dramatic entrance, the entire atelier team came out in their white coats to take the final bow, to thunderous applause.

Kudos to you Mr. Toledano, for making one of the most meaningful gestures in the fashion world today.
