Elie Saab: Spring 2015 RTW


1 2 3 4If you have read my posts from previous seasons then you will see I am a huge fan of Elie Saab, I mean c’mon who isn’t! There is never a season were he fails to deliver, its spot on every season and this time is no exception. There was a little bit of a sporty vibe through some of the pieces in a subtle way with swimsuit inspired structures which matched the ‘Dive into the Deep Blue’ theme. It was also a very nice follow on from the previous seasons with similar patterns and structures however being slightly updated for the new season. There was a lot of lace inserts and cut-outs aswell as 70s style silhouettes which all appear to be big for SS15 – watch out! Again another fabulous collection from Saab, can I have it all please! 🙂

Mugler: Spring 2015 RTW


Mugler 1 Mugler 2 Mugler 3 Mugler 4Yesterday saw David Koma’s runway debut for Mugler at Paris Fashion Week. He described it as being a surreal moment as he took on the creative director job. The clothes had a very David Koma feel about them, they were all very sleek and had a slight edge to them with cropped designs and cut-outs. Koma stuck to mostly a monochromatic palette with this collection and quite simplistic silhouettes. There was also a sports vibe about the collection which seems to be popular for SS15 as it was also spotted at collections such as Topshop with mesh details and baring midriffs. Some may think Koma was simply playing it too safe with his simple designs but with wearable designs I say simple but effective 🙂

Dolce & Gabbana: Spring 2015 RTW


Hey all, I do apologize for my lateness on this post since Paris Fashion Week has already kicked off and I’m still here dwelling on the clothes over in Milan. Anyway probably the most anticipated show of MFW was Dolce and Gabbana who always put on an incredible show and this season was no exception. Despite being an Italian brand and always known for sticking to its roots this collection had a very Spanish vibe to it with flamenco polka dots and bullfighter styles aswell as bold shades of red. However according to the designers the Spanish occupied Sicily for 300 years therefore they had many similar cultures which explains the direction of this collection. The silhouettes used were very D&G with their typical high waists and short styles which some may view as being predictable but it works and I love it. Again sticking to their usual, the designs were embellished to the nines with a great attention to detail which I just love about them and it makes every collection they put their name to highly desirable.

Christopher Kane: Spring 2015 RTW


It hard to believe London Fashion Week is over, that must have been the shortest fashion week ever. Anyway before I move on to Milan its time to look at one of the final collections shown at LFW this week. This collection is by the fabulous Christopher Kane who for me is always really a hit or a miss, sometimes he produces fantastic collections and other times not so much, don’t get me wrong though while some of his designs might not be to my liking I will never deny the amazing talent and creativity of this great designer. I was reading a bit about this collection and his inspirations and I discovered that this collection was actually created in tribute to his late friend and professor Louise Wilson. It is quite touching and rather lovely actually reading about it as his collection incorporated materials such as cord, rope and coils in which he used in his early days when he was a student. The collection also had a ‘back to school’ vibe about it using colours from his old school uniform and having a sophisticated and classy style about it which I love. Overall I am very impressed with this collection, I loved the idea of bringing his past into it but making it present. It’s a hit for me 🙂 Credit to Vogue.com for images.
