The collections of Giorgio Armani, Max Mara and Tomas Meier for Bottega Veneta adhere closely to her distinctive style. Always leaning towards to a classic look, but with that certain something and a distinctive signature. Quality materials, exceptional tailoring and unique colour combinations. A worthwhile investment that will carry you into the next stage of life.
The hat of the season 2012
In Summer 2012 Armani created the hat of the season. A must-have piece for people who like to collect hats and other unique accessories, especially those who would like their daughter(s) to inherit something unique. Please, wear this hat exclusively in combination with a suit and high heels in order to maximise the alignment of your body.
Skirt length ends above the knee
Farben, wie auf einem orientalischen Bazaar
Tomas Maier also knows what he is doing. His skirt length ends above and not below the knee. This length, combined with either flat or high heeled shoes, is especially advantageous for small women. The colours remind me of a luxurious oriental bazaar.
Combination of warm and cold colours
So called “colour-blocking” is no longer of any interest. Lets go back to basics and combine warm colours with cool colours. The Italians know how to do it. For example: A camel hair coloured top, teamed with pants in turquoise. This combination also goes very well with lemon yellow, cyan and pink. Just pure class!
Raf Simmons for Jil Sander
” Hot Pants are hot”
Pure, elitist, selective – the latest collection from Raf Simons is a total homage to Jil Sander’s Look. Not necessarily a “must-have piece”, but the hot pants with a high waistline are quite amazing.
Please note that only fashion models 1.75m or taller can wear the severe looking suit, with a pencil skirt or capri pants ending below the knee.
Here is an eye catcher, a long way from what Jil Sander represents, but the pill box is gorgeous. Jackie O. would have liked it…
What’s new and going on in Paris?
The designers from Paris seem to agree on one point: The wide sleeve option. Unlike tight fitting sleeves, they promote comfortable and relaxing arm movement, but only an option if you like to experiment with the 80ties style.
Chez Celine, the wide sleeve approach is the most highly evolved, even given the fact that the silhouette of the body fits tightly. Lots of combinations of white for hot summer days. Yes, these outfits look simply marvellous, but they spend far too much time at the dry cleaners.
