The designing duo behind Peter Pilotto is best known for their feminine yet striking digitally printed wears. Peter Pilotto is focused towards textiles and prints whereas Christopher De Vos concentrates more on silhouettes and draping. Flared sleeves on blouses, exaggerated peplum tops, heavily beaded skirts, skinny graphic trousers, and cutout dresses with pockets in the boldest of colors are definitely not for the wary. And we love every bit of it!
Leave it to Diana, of Miss Moss, to find an unexpected correlation between Mara Hoffman‘s spring collection and Maria Primachenko‘s folk art. Mara’s bright and bold Polynesian prints stand up seamlessly to the Ukrainian artist’s colorful and exuberant paintings. Wonderful job, Diana!!
The energy and playfulness at Libertine‘s spring presentation earlier this week was 110% infectious. Not a single piece of clothing was unembellished – either with sprayed graffiti, crystals, floral patterns, or embroidery. Models bounced around and danced to Xanadu, leaving us ready to host our own Libertine-themed party!
Rich colors, elaborate beadwork, intricate embroidery, exposed midriffs and draped fabric exposing a single shoulder . . . India was discernibly the inspiration for Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig this season. The 60s, Mod-ish spin to the glamourous gowns and otherworldly dresses had me appreciating the shorter hems and more simplified silhouettes. Thanks to Marchesa for momentarily transporting me to a country that sits at the very top of my travel wish list.
There wasn’t a single woman who wasn’t oohing and aahing over every piece from jewelry designer, and CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalist, Jennifer Fisher‘s spring presentation earlier this week. Models donned layers upon layers upon layers of honeycomb shaped necklaces, heavy geometric chains, bone shaped and spiked cuffs, delicate handpieces, and diamond encrusted rings. We were especially obsessed with wide collection of engravable charms, all of which could be combined to personalize a one-of-a-kind pendant necklace. Je need!
Simply blown away by all the African-inspired details in Tory Burch‘s spring collection. With fabrics from Guinea, jewelry from Ghana, slippers from Morocco, and elements from all over the world, the Tory girl is an American globetrotter. And the soft and messy pulled-apart fishtail braids? Right up our alley . . .
