The hat ....

             Tell me what hat are you wearing and i will tell you what style should you try. Today i'm fond of hats...maybe it's the weather outside, or maybe it's just the feeling i had when seeing a friend wearing a beautiful fedora hat.
             There is an old saying: " if you want to get ahead and get noticed, get a hat! "
             Have you ever felt like you really want something that could set you apart from the crowd? Well...this is a question that even Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel put herself when started designing hats for Parisian women.
             In the pictures below, i tried to create 3 looks for 3 different hats : fedora, beret, cloche. So if you want a soft feminine look , just try the 1920 cloche with a nice fitted dress , you should not forget about the pearls...
              Fedora hat is used more to finish off a menswear look, but i tried to get a look of a voyage lady...Louis Lane, a journalist that always came with the biggest news.
              And the beret....the french beret ... for some city girls...that like the coffee shop chic look, maybe a writer that does her stuff sorounded by people that have their breakfast in some coffee shop...
              Hope you like it...and also i hope i've inspired you somehow !!!!

            This is a set i've created for the Talbots contest. It's simple, but very chic.T|his autumn is dedicated to real women that know how to reinvent vintage style with sensuality in camel colors mixed with animal prints.
            In order to achieve the look you shouldn't forget a 50's hat and the very leather midi gloves. :)

                The military style Cristophe Decarmin presented in summer season 2010 changed to a sophisticated and golden look. Damask blazer, micro dresses embroidered with subtly shaded poillettes, lacerated jeans, luxurious, slim pants, all that had the role of conquering elegance and embellish a chic rock'n roll attitude.

             In an ice floe decor and a background of iceberg, that is how Karl Lagerfeld opened the Chanel collection. He simplified the choice of shoes, using yeti boots on the models that waded in the water, nestled in unthinkable and sublime overcoats and coats in tweed or tacked knit underlined with heavy fur.  Is like he wanted to bring fashion in the north pole tribes.   The show was astonishing proving one more time that Karl Lagerfeld make his honey from everything that marks his mind.                                  See by yourselves!                                                                     


              John Galliano is back in business :). Glamour is everywhere. The Dior collection  exquisitely reveals a woman charms in half-tints. Whether she wears cashmere shadbelly with leather jodphurs, or slips into a sheer little chiffon dress with ruffles, well accessorized with leather thigh high boots, she is always seductive in a singular fashion. 
             John Galliano mixes the Scottish frockcoat, the impeccable men's west, a few pullovers and cardigans and a tender and sensual lingerie dress to create a wardrobe of chic and charm.The chocolate lambskin trench is the cherry on top.

Lanvin ...

           Alber Elbaz succeeded in creating a contemporary Amazon look on today's women, because they all look alike, they have the same black jet hair, and they look strong. 
           Creating elegance in extreme demonstrations, exacerbates cuts, exaggerated volumes and very determined lines. His vision was to shape the body through asymmetry, underlines draping, broadens shoulders, magnified details. 
                    Fur, feathers, fringes, bows, embroidery, beads, oversize accessories, they are making the very look.

Tommy Hilfiger..

       Earth colors give elegance and exuberance. Tommy Hilfiger's fall-winter 2010 collection is full of eccentric but very luxuriant mixes.  In the picture beside i tried to get that look, hope i've succeeded.
       This fall, the family sets the new standard for prep style. 
  Tweeds and corduroy, headscarves and high-heeled duck boots, a true trench and a bold blazer, crewnecks and down vests, aviators and repp ties. The more you mix it the better! Just like the Hilfiger gang. 




Louis Vuitton..

               Maybe his name should be most associated with his well-known handbags. Everybody want to have one. But, passing through, this year Louis Vuitton collection was a revival of the fifties.
                " Marc Jacobs was adamant" said "L'officiel". The look is maybe the best expression of the fifties, enhanced with large skirts on the bias that swing around the calves, the jackets tightly hug the waist, but the long gloves, small bags, small round heels with flat bows sublimate this retro style.

                   The atmosphere is nostalgic and reminds us of the American films of the times, when young people drove Cadillacs, but also about the first discovering of Coke.
                   Herringbone wools, damask, printed taffetas, tulle dresses, and the half cut bra prom dress decolletes were wreathed with flawless pony tails.
                   In my opinion this is the very look of the year. :)

Ralph Lauren ...

               More than forty years ago, Ralph Lauren began establishing a line of ties with Polo label .
              “A tie was the way a man expressed himself. I believed that men were ready for something new and different. They didn’t want to look as if they worked for IBM. A beautiful tie was an expression of quality, taste, style.” 

               Nowadays, he is one of the trendsetters and his runaway shows evoque the quintessential of his work.

                     Reinvention is the most common word in fashion this autumn. Ralph Lauren had a vision about modern silhouettes rendered in rich shades of camel, saddle, and gray melange.
                    Menswear inspired tailoring and luxurious layers of wool, cashmere and velvet give reference to English country glamour, while impossibly slim pants, skirts and exaggerated jodhpurs create a dramatic silhouette. 
                    What is the most important of this collection? The answer is in the mixes of colors and fabrics. Going from weightless silk georgette, through floral patterns and adding downtown drama the accent is on lace  details and crocheted slim-fitting knits. Another look enhanced by Old World silhouettes and opulent details next to the sleek and mysterious black detailed with delicate lace, rich leather and rugged suede form an exciting update and classic luxury.


                      :) Enjoy!

Morning post..:)

                     It's 2 a.m and i cannot sleep. "Youtube - ing" as i always do, 'cause i love music too, i' ve found myself blocked into sensitive songs ( see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOKI_tIBWVI&ob=av2n ) and i realized that autumn is here and i didn't write anything about must-haves of this season.
                    So in the following days i'll do some writings about Ralph Lauren collection, D&G, Balmain, etc., and also i'll choose some topics to talk about this autumn.
                    Keep up the good work :)!
