Chanel supermarket??

 It was Chanel show time at Paris Fashion Week this morning and Karl Lagerfeld exceeded everybody’s expectations. Again!

If you still remember Chanel couture show (and I’m sure you do) not that long time ago, fashion legend wowed everybody by art installations designed by the man himself and now, for autumn-winter ’14 collections, he transformed Grand Palais into a supermarket full of Chanel branded goods that involved everything from meat and eggs, to brooms and liqueur.

 Models were walking around and ‘shopping’ while showcasing the collection and after the show was over, guests were welcome to take anything they liked from the shelfs!

You can imagine was was happening after such an announcement. Everybody was literally looting the ‘supermarket’ and taking everything with double C sign. After they were done, the shelves were totally empty.

Karl said that Coco would have hated what he did but his goal was to update the image of the brand. This kind of spectacle was a right choice to emphasise our consumerism and prove that everything with Chanel sign can sell.

But let’s not forget the collection which was totally amazing! Classic Chanel tweed, stylish trainers, leather leggings, tailored tracksuits and a lot of colour created a luxe home-wear feel and made quite an astonishing sight for the guests.

Spring – Summer trends at London Fashion Weekend

It’s spring!!! Well, at least in the calendar… But this miserable London weather cannot stand in a way of SS14 hottest trends that will be appearing in my and probably your wardrobes.

So I and my friend Juste have bought the Silver ticket to London Fashion Weekend and Trend catwalk to see what’s the deal. We were well excited! Ha! It was quite a good show I have to say. Four main trends were presented on the catwalk and here are my best pictures representing all of them. We couldn’t sit in the FROW so forgive me for protruding heads at the bottom of some pictures 😀

Favourite A/W12 trends

Hello and sorry for being away for so long.. But now I am back and ready to review what is happening in the fashion world. To be honest, I am quite happy and excited with the turn the A/W collections took this cold season. There are quite a few new trends as you probably already noticed on the High Street, but I chose my favourite 4 I am most excited about.

OVERSIZE

Those oversized coats are somehow very attractive and can provide a cool edge to casual or office-smart outfit. I have snapped up mine from Topshop a few days ago!

My new coat from Topshop!

Jil Sanders

Celine

Team up with skinny jeans, cropped trousers or wear over the shorts and skirts for a maximum effect.

Gothic & Leather

My personal favourite trend this season! I always was a leather jacket girl and now leather featuring all collections I feel like a child in a sand box. There are leather trousers, leather collars, jackets and dresses that are perfect to create a gothic look which was so popular on the catwalks for A/W12. Also, STUDS! My another biggest obsession which started long ago but now it gets released! Think gothic make-up and dark lips for evening look.

Versace

     

Gyvenchy

Salvatore Ferragamo

Topshop

  

River Island  

 

Military

Create a power look with a military trend with cool khakis, leather and tailoring.

Max Mara, Victoria Beckham, Burberry

Optical Prints

Summer is over but prints are staying in our wardrobes to lift up our spirits during those dark and rainy winter days. Optical prints are seen on new and hot trouser suits (office wear do not have to be boring), dresses, bags and coats. My catwalk favourite is definitely Prada. And for those who cannot afford to break a bank Next offers very close alternative.

Mary Katrantzou

Kenzo

With these trends dominating the high street, there is no excuse for dull and dark winter, so style up and enjoy!

 

Alternative London Fashion Week

 

Last week londoners and wondering tourists were treated to Alternative Fashion Week which was taking place at Spitalfields Traders Market. There were catwalk shows, designers selling their pieces at the market and lots of stylish people. Fashion students, young designers, models, photographers, fashionistas and everybody interested in fashion were there! And, most importantly, the entry was FREE for everybody!

I came down on the third day and was impressed by the young and promising talent exposed on the catwalk. I can easily see some of them rocking London Fashion Week in a year or two.

The influences of theatre, avant-garde and bright colours were dominating but every designer was unique and had their own brand.

Best images from Day 3:

Mary Ratcliffe & Lucy Tiffney

Love style and colours! I could actually see some of this selling at TopShop’s Jersey section.

Totally LOVE this!  Creative, brave, promising and would find a space in Lady Gaga’s wardrobe.

 

Theatre and colour mix!
