Piamita was founded by three friends, including an editor at W Magazine and a jewelry designer, and was born out of the desire for a chic alternative for traditional loungewear. Borrowing shapes from conventional lingerie and sleepwear sets, their resort collection is filled with elegantly tailored silk blouses, pants, shorts, and dresses. I’m personally obessesed with the origami printed pajama-style pants with contrast piping and my favorite part – a gathered elastic waistband!
Erdem Moralioglu’s follow up to his sheer, cool, and delicate spring collection is a pre-fall collection that is bolder, warmer, and much more daring. Eye popping colors like tangerine, citron, electric blue, and blood orange are incorporated into wild floral prints and paired flawlessly with lace. Classically Erdem. Quintessentially feminine.
Ulyana Sergeenko, editor at Glamour Russia, photographer, and now fashion designer, is currently one of my favorite fashion icons . Her unique, vintage, and ultra-feminine style is ridiculously glamorous and translates perfectly into her debut collection and stunning lookbook for fall.
Thanks to the flawless styling of Giovanna Randall‘s feminine, bold, and beautifully tailored pre-fall collection, I am resassured that I will never tire of the bright fuchsia and flame red combo. I’m also especially crazy for the leather peplum blouse, the gleaming red blazer, green printed trousers, and the black lace babydoll dress – all of which I will be keeping my eyes peeled for when Honor‘s e-commerce launches in 2012!
The cavernous chamber of the Galerie Courbe in the Grand Palais was temporarily transformed into a magical backdrop for Chanel‘s new Metiers d’art collection, inspired by India’s Maharajas and lavish palaces. Tables were set with tiers of fruits, sweets, and flowers. Models, with khol-rimmed eyes, donned jeweled tikkas down the middle of dreadlocked hair. And this is just a sliver of the many extravagant details. Check out the beautiful footage below and see how pieces from the collection came together at embroidery house Lesage and button and jewelry atelier Desrues.
I’m loving Zimmermann‘s dark and sultry interpretation of 1920s nostalgia by way of their fall lookbook. The mood is flawlessly set with woven brocade pants, asian-inspired botanical silk printed skirts, lace dresses, and velvet blazers. I’m especially eager to try the strapless dress over blouse combo!
