Moschino Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

Fashion

With the way Moschino’s spring/summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection (designed by Jeremy Scott) started, there was no way to prepare yourself for the larger than life garments that the brand sent down the runway, unless you were there yourself. The first part of the collection gave a free-spirited vibe, but in a dialed down way. It made me question if the brand had decided to tone down their looks for the new season. There was a distinct “construction zone” theme paired with retro silhouettes, but it wasn’t too glaring. The first looks were designed on a reflective yellow fabric, and others that seemed to mimic the pattern of traffic cones.

The first sense of Moschino’s classic novelty was with the use of actual traffic cones. Being featured first as a handbag and later as a hat, these pieces really pulled the looks together in a way more suited to the design house.

The final piece that came before the “novelty explosion” was a classic, knee-length beige trench coat with an A-line bottom. This was my personal favorite commercial piece, because I can see any number of women dying to own that coat, with myself included. It did, however, seem out of place in the collection. The pieces before it were vibrant in color and (literally) reflected the construction theme, and the pieces after it were a combined eruption of colors and literal elements of roadwork, used in an unconventional way. It seemed to act as a calm before the couture-storm, and it really amplified the element of surprise for the audience.

Even despite the extravagant couture, Moschino really stepped up and made some simple feminine, retro-inspired pieces, like a boat-necked shift dress made from a fabric much like the reflective orange fencing put up at construction sites. The look was finished off with a simple black bow tied at the model’s waist. I’d like to dub this ensemble true construction chic, as it celebrated both the abstract theme of the show and a beautiful shape that could actually be pulled off worn on a daily basis.

Jeremy Scott definitely put on a unique, off the wall show, and I for one will admit that it’s refreshing to see a show that’s all about fun, while showing an excellent quality of work and even producing some beautiful and wearable garments for the everyday woman. But above everything else, I’ve never seen caution tape look so good.

The designer didn’t just stop at road construction, however. In the second half of the Moschino spring 2016 show, he switched gears and brought in comic books and the Powerpuff Girls. Suddenly you’re bombarded by a slew of bright colors and animation. But he also added cleaning products into the mix, directly afterward, and suddenly there were bubbles everywhere. They first appeared with a “squeaky-clean” light blue dress with a halter neck and large bow on the hip, and they stayed for the remainder of the show. The runway show ended with a finale of duster and mop inspired dresses to accompany the bubbles – just like at a car wash – and they were absolutely incredible (which is something I never thought I would hear myself say).

Moschino definitely lived up to their reputation this season, and presented a truly incredible, eccentric collection pulled from the most unconventional places in the world.

Louis Vuitton Volta Taurillon Leather Replica Bag Review

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton is a legendary purse designer that has manufactured some of the most unique and sophisticated handbags that the world has ever seen. Its products are symbols of style and elegance, accessories adored by countless fashionistas across the world. To have such a purse means the ultimate fashion extravagance.

Out of the numerous beautiful and successful LV handbags, one has caught my full attention. This chic and gorgeous city purse is one of its latest designs. It was created for those women who know how to appreciate luxury and blend it beautifully with the casual look of the traditional messenger bag.

The name of this amazing LV bag is Volta Taurillon and its key assets are represented by a comfortable and light body that is exquisitely manufactured from supple Taurillon leather, the removable strap iconic for messenger bags, the elegant handles and the versatile carrying options. The interior of the Volta is perfect for organizing and accommodating all your important office or travel items. One of the best additions that secure your belongings are the signature LV metal and leather clasp.

The Volta Taurillon is a spacious, but modest sized handbag that comes in the following size: 11.8 x 11.0 x 5.1 inches. It looks great both on your hand or across your body. It is the kind of purse that complements nicely either your work attire or your casual clothing.

The rectangular shape of the Louis Vuitton Volta with the oversized front flap cover is defined by using the remarkable Taurillon cowhide leather. This very high quality material is incredibly sturdy and firm, but has a nice and elegant surface that shines distinctively.

The LV Volta Taurillon Leather bag comes in 9 different color choices, like Khaki, Galet, Grenat, Rubis, Magnolia, Coquelicot, Petale and Noir. Every single one of this variations looks incredibly nice, but the one that I consider to be the lushest and sophisticated is the Cocquelicot. This bright red looks gorgeous with a stylish silky blouse and a pencil skirt or with a little black dress.

The hardware of the Louis Vuitton Volta consists of nicely crafted golden metallic pieces and every single part is carefully engraved with the LV logo. This metal and color choice complements very nicely the overall design of the purse.

On the front part of the LV Volta Taurillon we notice the signature LV clasp closing system that has the oversized golden brand’s logo. This accentuates the elegance of the bag. Furthermore, the purse comes with an adjustable removable shoulder strap that makes it so much easier to comfortably carry it around even when it is full and really heavy.

Regarding its functionality, the Louis Vuitton Volta manages to impress greatly. At the inside it has two large compartments for accommodating all your important belongings, one flat pocket and one zipped central pocket. Whereas at the outside there is one outside back flat pocket.

At the inside of the bag there is a very elegant microfiber lining that is usually available in a very warm sand color. Don’t get tricked by other color or fabric variations for its inside lining.

If you are looking to get a memorable replica bag then I definitely recommend that you buy a Louis Vuitton Volta Taurillon fake purse. This feminine and stylish handbag is the perfect addition for your super-fashionable wardrobe.

Blumarine Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

Fashion

With an eclectic line-up that seems to be inspired by Persephone, one of Zeus’ many daughters and the lovely wife Hades, the Blumarine spring/summer 2016 collection takes its duty seriously. Like Persephone herself, the Blumarine woman is ready to spend six cold months in the underworld before re-emerging full of life in our beloved sunny weather. Blumarine back to spring leitmotiv runs through every single piece of the collection and enjoys playing with different fabrics, sizes and styles. Somehow, Anna Molinari managed to interpret this theme in more than 30 significantly different ways, making her collection one of the most impressive and multifaceted lines seen so far. In fact, even though some of her creations may not satisfy everyone’s expectations or personal tastes, her ability as a fashion designer is undeniable here.

Blumarine Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Blumarine’s celebration of spring and summer begins with a great number of maxi dresses, harmoniously adorned with floral embroidery patterns. Embellishing the hems of each skirt, these flowers seem to belong more to Mother Nature rather than to the dresses per se, thanks to a romantic optical illusion that gives all the outfits an ethereal and sophisticated allure. This ethereal allure finds a good ally with the great amount of sheer fabrics Anna Molinari has skillfully applied to almost every piece, often using them as a modern variation of the vertical striped pattern.

However, see-through fabrics and floral embroideries are the only things all the pieces have in common. In fact, Molinari’s talent to sift through her back to spring leitmotiv goes beyond the mere usage of different fabrics, embracing different fashion styles and cultures. While the first part of the collection has in hippie influences, the second part travels forwards in time to the early Eighties, bringing puff sleeve blouses and structured shoulder pad dresses, at the same time, wide-leg pants, along with oversized shirts and trench coats that give a sophisticated unisex appeal to the line-up.

Shortly after, we find ourselves thrown into the mid-Eighties and early Nineties thanks to some short wrap-around skirts, sleek fabrics and black crop tops, which give the collection a mystic sensual allure that may be linked to Persephone’s love for Hades. The third and last part of the show, which may be seen as soulfully futuristic, gives us some good examples of what fashion might be in a not so distant future: practical, ecological and architecturally inspired by nature.

Last but not least, it is also extremely interesting to see how Molinari has been inspired by the Asian world, with its Zen philosophy and martial art tradition. In fact, while some outfits seem to celebrate Japanese cherry blossom gardens, others look like futuristic versions of kimonos. Whether you see the Blumarine spring 2016 collection as too chaotic or not, Anna Molinari’s ability to dress up Persephone is tangible, and will surely inspire future fashion designers.

Get ready for the next generation in luggage, the suitcase of the future, the ‘never-loose-your-luggage-again’ item that tech and travel buffs will most assuredly be salivating for; enter the Space Case 1. This is the revolution in luggage we’ve been waiting for (I think…). Forget about those electronic tags with RFID chips and what not, the Space Case is an all in one type accessory that has features to spare.

Let’s start with security – employing a biometric scanner, the Space Case 1 will only open after it’s scanned your fingerprints. In case it’s required to be unlocked remotely, you can use a smartphone app. The app also features a GPS tracking system in case your luggage ends up someplace other than where you are. Proximity sensors are also onboard so your bag doesn’t just wander off without you knowing. It’s more of an anti-theft feature of course.

The tech doesn’t quite stop there; among the variety of sensors are those that are built into the wheels that will indicate the weight of the bag ensuring you never have to pay that extra-weight fee when you’re shopping goes a little over the top. A 12,000 mAh power bank (removable) is built into the Space Case carry-on edition as an added bonus to help you charge your devices if your smartphone, tablet, laptop etc. is running low. There are multiple USB ports provided for this. The suitcases even comes with Bluetooth and a built in speaker so you can have handsfree conversations when required or evenlisten to music should the need arise.
For the frequent traveler, the Space Case 1 suitcases are also connected to the Planet Travel smartphone application that acts as a virtual concierge for check-ins at the airport, hotel bookings, car rentals etc. Some of the more mundane specifications include a lightweight polycarbonate shell which is available in a variety of color options to suite your style; they range from basic colors to some very arty designs.

Coach + Gary Baseman S/S15 Collection

Other Brands

coach_gary_baseman_ss15-collection1Working with Los Angeles-based artist Gary Baseman for most of Coach’s S/S15 collection, creative director Stuart Vevers decided it was going to be one that held ‘beautiful strangeness that celebrated individuality’. With that in mind, 10 darkly playful ‘creatures’ were created specifically for the collaboration, and you’ll find them across a wide spectrum of Coach’s universe, from bags and clutches to charms and jewellery alongside RTW must-haves like textured sweaters, leather jackets and of course, the ever-essential white tee that comes printed with the cultish critters.

As far as Singapore is concerned, we’ll be getting a decent selection of the merchandise, from the totes that come printed with the creatures (SGD1375) to zipped leather folios (SGD425, SGD525) that come in either Pink or Periwinkle.

Starting from just SGD90for the iPhone6 cases in plastic all the way to SGD645 for the sterling silver necklace,you can see them all for yourself right here via this link.
