About a month after the protests for the Black Lives Matter movement erupted, Dior chose to have a complete white cast for their Haute Couture short film.
As the music and visuals started for the Chanel Cruise 2020/21 collection on IGTV, I for a second deemed this to be a fantastic collection for Virginie Viard. The music was divine, Time by Arca, and for a virtual show I knew I couldn’t be too picky of the set especially given it’s the first digital show for Chanel in history (but still, it’s Chanel..) But further in I began to notice an unfortunate tale of too much denim that Chanel does not need, and triangle bags that have Karl and Coco turning.
When I come to think of it, I’m more old-school than modern when it comes to many things. When talking with family or friends I much prefer a phone call over a text, when dating come to the door to pick me up rather than shooting me a text, and of course, with fashion. The history of the fashion show is exciting and so interesting to see how they have evolved over the past one hundred years or so. With COVID-19 changing all of our lives, it has affected the fashion show and has designers thinking if they are even an essential part anymore.
I’m always on the hunt for new shops and designers to buy from, and with Instagram being a huge place where you can find tons of new designers daily, I take advantage of this. I recently came across Alice McCall’s Resort 2020 collection, and completely fell in love.
I discovered Alessandra Rich just a few weeks ago on one of my intense pinning sessions. Goodness, once you go down the Pinterest rabbit hole there is no returning. Whilst pinning away I came across a photo of a model wearing one of the SS19 looks; it was the one with the model close up, in a yellow floral dress with matching belt, with lovely gloves on(that now made me realize I absolutely need a pair). She was accessorized in over sized pearls(um, YES please!) and an oversized headband. In that moment, I was hooked. Keep on Reading!
The prints and colors in the spring 2019 collection at Michael Kors are to die for. Bright and cheery, the pieces certainly are mood boosters for anyone that wears them. The daisy print featured in lime greens to pinks and yellows and all shades of blue, there’s no surprise that anyone that’s a lover of color wants to take this collection for a spin on a summer vacation. Even better, there are matching hats to top off the looks. Along with the daisy print that I absolutely adore, I love the pop of zebra print that is featured on bags and shoes. Keep on Reading!
“Camo but make it fashion.” That’s the first thing that came to mind when I viewed the Miu Miu Fall 2019 collection online yesterday. Of course there were bright florals and a-line dresses, but the introduction of camouflage was very unexpected for me, but I actually like it. Keep on Reading!
The Grand Palais was transformed into a beautiful snowy wonderland this morning for Karl Lagerfeld’s last collection with Chanel. I can’t even imagine how much emotion this day has brought to the people at Chanel, the models, and everyone attending that have memories with him. It’s an honor to attend any Chanel show, but this one definitely felt different for everyone there. Karl was honored with a moment of silence, a card was placed on every seat with an illustration by Karl of him and Coco Chanel saying “The beat goes on…”, along with a voiceover of Karl from a recent podcast.

Neon isn’t being left in 2018, and Anthony Vaccarello proved that to us during the Saint Laurent Fall 2019 Ready-to-Wear collection that was shown in Paris just last week. Keep on Reading!
