Trend Report: McDonald’s Moschino?!

That’s right! The American designer Jeremy Scott, debuted his MOSCHINO collection on the runway at Milan Fashion Week and proved that the title “Creative director” of MOSCHINO couldn’t have been given to anyone else. I find it genius how he took something that kinda says…. “junk”(I apologize to all of the McDonald’s lovers out there :)) and turned into something so “high fashion”.   He transformed the iconic yellow “M” logo, and turned it into MOSCHINO’s own M-heart logo.The red and yellow colored pieces, with the iconic McDonald’s logo were instantly EVERYWHERE.

And once you see Anna Dello Russo wearing something, of course you start craving it (no pun intended :)).

Oh, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Did you think that was all? How about “Sponge Bob” inspired pieces?!  McDonald’s was not the only brand given the fashion treatment.  The candy lovers will love this part , there was a ruffled Hershey’s bar dress, a microwaveable popcorn dress, and a flowing gown fit for the queen of the King of Beers.

My personal favorites to be completely honest, were the leather pieces, with the incredibly sexy, layered belt motifs. And of course you have to love everything that’s “Chanel” inspired, and there were some great quilted bomber jackets, skirts and here comes the fun part… quilted sweatpants :).

Label to watch: Ground Zero

Eri and Philip Chu, the creative designer (brother) duo behind the “Ground Zero” label, have presented their “Ready to Wear Spring/Summer 2014” collection at the Paris Fashion Week, back in September 2013. Bright, electric colors, graphic and floral prints were the things that marked this collection. I really liked the transition from the toned down, “no makeup”  to the bold, futuristic make up look.

Some of these daring, statement  pieces actually remind me of Ricardo Tisci’s designs for Givenchy (probably because of the crazy prints). I really love this collection, it  basically “screams” SPRING to me, so I got inspired, visited asos.com and ordered some similar pieces :). Hope this collection inspires you to update your spring/summer wardrobe.

She Wolf of Wall Street

Fitted, tailored, masculine suits, the perfect choice for a woman that likes to get that “power look”. I have mentioned before, I love these gender bender outfits, who says only a man can look good in a suit?! I enjoy being feminine but sometimes you need that strong, almost “boyish” look and you should definitely go for it. Even though most of the time when you think of a suit, the first thought you get is MANLY, I personally find suits to be quite sexy… especially when you add a pair of 12 cm stilettos, to make the outfit complete :).

So go for it ladies! Find the perfect suit for you and work that androgynous  look!

I have to admit, I am kinda obsessed with these MANGO suits, want them, need them, have to have them! 🙂

For the Love of Shoes!

Recently I had the chance to check out Tom Ford’s shoe collection for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 season. The first pair I saw, were the thigh high lace ups… and I knew I would love the entire collection, based on the look of those shoes. I have never seen anything similar, and that just shows what a genius designer he is.

I am all about pieces that stand out in the crowd and these shoes… will do exactly that. 🙂

The pairs I absolutely love…

2014 Trend Report: The Jumpsuit and The Romper

As I was watching the S/S 2014 runway shows, I couldn’t help but notice that the jumpsuits were EVERYWHERE. I remember they were a big trend a few seasons ago but they are obviously making a comeback! Jumpsuits and rompers  can look really classy and they come in many different styles, there’s a lot to choose from.
