I just had to show some of my favorite pieces from the Stella McCartney Resort 2014 line. We have been seen a lot of yellow fabrics in the Resort-collection for 2014, a light yellow hue, which also the Olsen-twins worked with in their collection from The Row. Stella paired her yellow dress with baby pink mules, which also is a big trend for 2014. Overall is a nice collection from Stella McCartney, but I wouldn’t say I am blown away. Although there are some accessories which are making me quite excited, especially the beautiful satin dresses.
Nicolas Ghesquière was a genious who literally took Balenciaga to a whole new level in his fifteen years of service for the brand. I was skeptical at first to Wang, he is great of what he does at hos own self-titled brand, but I still found it very odd when they announced him as the creative director for the franch brand. Anyhow, I must say I am slightly wrong. I think this collection is surprisingly good. The Balenciaga silhouettes are still there, but in a different way. It’s elegant and raw, just like Wang’s own designs. I like the knotted silver bracelets and details on different pieces, the amazing deep green fur jacket and black suede boots. By the way, It’s going to be so exciting to see what kind of handbags and shoes Wang can design for Balenciaga that makes every fashionistas heart turnover (Ghesquière’s cash cow was the Motorcycle bag, and still is…).
Pics from the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2013 collection is now out. I was very excited about the PS pre-collection since their previous collections has been amazing. Overall the collection looks pretty great – very Proenza Schouler. A trip to Fuiji influneced the designers behind the brand, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. A black and white graphical printed pair of trousers, a skirt or a dress (a print that acutally is formed as the Proenza Schouler logo-print), black and white boxy leather jackets styled with thin knitted turtle necks and pointy black pumps and heeled sandals. I dig the blue and green-ish pieces in a metallic texture because they utterly breathes PS. The newest piece in the leather goods-section (a bag that is available in stores now) is the clutch called The Courier – a quite simple design that will probably become one of the brands cash sales hits.
