MILAN FASHION WEEK

Le 27 février 2017, 03:12 dans Humeurs 0

Call it the Influencer collection, accessorized with a touch of nepotism.

Dolce & Gabbana sent out a who’s who of second-generation stars: Anais Gallagher, Isabel Getty, Kenya Kinski Jones, Rafferty Law, Gabriel Day-Lewis, Pixie Lott, Sofia Richie, Renee Stewart and Destry Speilberg were among those walking in the show. A couple of royals were thrown in for good measure, with Lady Amelia Windsor and Lady Kitty Spencer taking to the cat-printed catwalk.

Some proud parents posed in the front row, including Jamie Foxx, there to watch daughter Corinne; Pamela Anderson, there for son Dylan Lee; Christie Brinkley, supporting daughter Sailor; Rene Russo, cheering on daughter Rose; and Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna, there for daughter Delilah.

There also were a handful of social media and YouTube stars (Shea Marie, Aimee Song), and a tip sheet was handed out helpfully noting how many millions of followers each have.

It’s a smart business move for the house, which debuted the strategy at their men’s show last year, judging by the crush of kids and teens waiting outside the venue with various slogansigns. The brand has long been developing relationships with these young scions — they’ve been populating the front row for the past few seasons before being put on center stage. If the Instagram likes translate into sales, the company will be as golden as the crowns they sent down the runway.

YouTube singer Austin Mahone (10M followers!) kicked off the show with a performance and serenaded the models and audience throughout the show.

Oscar winner Jennifer Tilly gave a sassy walk as she hit the runway. “I’m famous now,” she joked after the show as the runway became an impromptu dance party.

On the runway, Dolce did what Dolce does well — sexy lace and leopard print dresses, sequined jackets, velvet suits, silky pajamas and rose print robes that added an air of louche. Jeans were patchwork with decks of playing cards or rocket ships, or covered in graffiti. The crowd went crazy when tees printed with the face of Justin Bieber over the label “KING” came onto the runway, though it was hard to tell if it was a chorus of oohs or boos. Still, the energy was infectious.

It was meant to be a collection for “real people” with all shapes, sizes and ages on the runway. While they are reaching a new generation of customers, they aren’t offering up a different Dolce. It’s classic and recognizable, which makes it all the more Instagrammable.Read more at:marieaustralia.com

BURBERRY AND ERDEM AT LONDON FASHION WEEK

Le 23 février 2017, 03:28 dans Humeurs 0

It was “See now, buy now” from Burberry at London Fashion Week. Fashionistas could buy what caught their fancy straight off the runway rather than wait the traditional six months for the clothes to hit the stores.

British artist Henry Moore was the inspiration for the label’s latest collection with models strutting amid his sculptures in neutral designs influenced by his work.

Moore, who died in 1986, was known for his bronze sculptures, some of which were on display at the venue.

Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey offered deconstructed knitwear, overhanging shirts and the fashion house’s trademark outerwear for both male and female wardrobes.

Men’s shirts also had lace detailing while trousers were high-waisted. A selection of jackets and Burberry’s famed trench coats came in sculpted shapes.

Erdem

The Erdem show at the Old Selfridges Hotel showed a remarkable unity of vision.

Canada-born designer Erdem Moralioglu focused almost entirely on long, tightly fitting, ultra-feminine dresses.

Instead of exposing wide swaths of his models’ flesh, as other designers are doing, he chose to emphasize the female form in its entirety, only rarely choosing to unveil a hint of cleavage.

Most of the outfits featured high necks and long sleeves with elaborate detailing, intricate bead work and delicate embroidery.

Oversize coats or high boots seemed to explode with colour. The beauty was in the detailing, which gave each piece an individual feel.

Some were sparkly, some were subtle and subdued. Despite their differences, the pieces complemented each other, making the entire collection come alive.

Known for his use of experimental textiles, energetic prints, and intricate craftsmanship, the show marked a return to London Fashion Week for the designer.Read more at:cocktail dresses australia | formal dresses brisbane

Disabled models make London Fashion Week debut

Disabled models made their debut on the London Fashion Week catwalk on Friday, and it’s “about time,” as one campaigner put it.

Amputee Jack Eyers, who wears a prosthetic leg, and Kelly Knox, who was born with no left forearm, took to the runway for luxury British label Teatum Jones.

“It’s important to get people to reconsider our relationship with the body in the luxury fashion sector,” Catherine Teatum, one half of the design duo, told AFP backstage.

“When you think there was a time when models of color weren’t cast for shows, that’s bonkers! So we feel a little bit like that now.”

The collection, which opened five days of shows in London, featured oversized coats and dresses, reconstructed with sheer layers, eyeleted seams and ties around the waist and legs.

Dubbed “The Body”, it took as inspiration the work of artist Hans Bellmer, who created mutated doll forms in protest at the cult of the perfect body in what would become Nazi Germany.

“As a brand we’ve always been inspired by human stories, wherever they’re from,” added co-designer Rob Jones.

Last season Teatum Jones used their show to celebrate LGBT rights in Scotland.

“Around the world, I think a lot of people are being sparked up and wanting to have a voice. Somebody’s got to do it, and somebody’s got to start,” Jones added.

Eyers previously made history when, in February 2015, he became the first male amputee to appear at New York fashion week, in creations by Italian designer Antonio Urzi.

His lower right leg was deformed from birth and he took the decision to amputate when he was 16.

“When I lost my leg I become very unconfident, whereas fashion gives you that sense of confidence,” he told AFP.

His agent had previously put him forward for London shows, but with no luck.

He puts it down to many designers being “very British, they don’t want to offend people.”

“In America, they use it as a sob story!”

Louise Dyson, founder of disabled model and actors agency VisABLE, which represents Eyers, said: “It’s about time.”

“It’s been something everyone wanted to avoid,” she added.

“I think they’ve finally woken up to the idea that this is really important. And people want to see great-looking models, irrespective of disability.”Read more at:bridesmaid dresses
