Fall 2011 must-have:

Colored coat with fur collar . This one is from Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2011 collection.

Carine Roitfeld’s final Fantasie.

Here’s the last Vogue Paris issue, under the era of Carine Roitfeld. The theme of the issue is Fantasie (Fantasy). I believe many Roitfeld fans wish the fact she is no longer the editor-in-chief was really a  fantasy and not the truth. I’m curious about what’s next for Vogue Paris. Can’t wait to see Emmanuelle Alt’s first issue.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2011

“The Beautiful People” made way to the beautiful models dressed in beautiful clothes at the Marc Jacobs show. Back to 40’s silhouettes with lots of pencil skirts.

Textures had a big role, as you can see in this dress.

The pieces were very voluminous.

Polka dots were reinvented. Sometimes big, sometimes in small sizes, they were everywhere.

Fashion Week: some favorites

Here are a few of my favorite things so far:

The gowns from Diane Von Furstenberg. Very vibrant colors in shiny fabrics.

Patterns are a symbol of the DVF brand, but they always find some way to reinvent them. Love the polka dots of the “wraped” dress and the colorful print of the one on the right. Chic, but still an everyday look.

Seriously? These DKNY cardigans are A-MA-ZING!I want one!

I definitely need to come back to this collection when I have more time. 1.Have you seen the colors? I love it. And the shapes?2. I want every single piece I’ve seen on the runway.

One word for Derek Lam show?


…and then there were fluid maxi dresses. And all of them were perfect.

…and this fur coat.

Victoria’s Secret for 2011 Valentine’s Day.

As usual, Victoria’s Secret has created a collection dedicated to the Valentine’s Day for people in love.

This time, the ad campaign presents Lily Donaldson, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel and Erin Wasson in gorgeous lingeries.

Have a happy Valentine’s Day.:)

My funny Valentine.

My boyfriend took this picture of my shoes just a few days ago, after a great dinner in one of the nicest  restaurants of the city.

It’s Valentine’s Day so I thought this could be a good way to celebrate it. 🙂

Also, the music below has a sort of meaning.

Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2011

Alexander Wang just presented his F/W 2011 collection, very inspired in the 90’s. For you to understand better his fixation with this decade, I leave this excerpt from Fashionista.

My generation, which is also Alexander Wang‘s generation, is very sentimental about the ’90s. We were teenagers back then, which means my first real fashion statement was a plaid baby doll dress, and the first fashion collection that directly influenced my style was Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis. (…)

I also share this feeling, at least a bit. I was a child at the time, but I still remember a lot from the 90’s.

When you choose satin and knit over sheer and black, grey and champagne over nude, you know it is 90’s. There were satin shorts, pants, tops and even ponchos – there was really a lot of satin!


Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: first look.

We didn’t even had time to make a review of all the Spring/Summer collections, and fashion weeks have already arrived. All over the main capitals of fashion in the world we will be able to see (and we have seen, at this point) the new trends for this year’s Fall/Winter.

The Mercedes-Benz fashion week (in New York, of course) has started and plenty has been shown. Here is an overview of what I liked most so far:

The cool vibes in Rebecca Minkoff’s show were great, whether in a nude trench coat, filled in by the volume of a leather skirt, in the transparencies of one dress or the silhouette of another.

Prabal Gurung, on the other side, was more about feminine and elegant.

I was amazed by the red dress on the left. It was chosen to open the show and it is simply gorgeous. The shade of red, the fact that it is off the shoulder and so elegant and sexy at the same time.

I can see this gown wore by some actress at the Oscars Ceremony.

Prabal is clearly keeping the combination red/pink for Fall.

He used different shades of pink.

Sometimes it was all a matter of white vs.black.

In the end, the collection was a lot about details like lace, embroidery, feathers, fur and chiffon skirts.
