Runway

Chanel Cruise 2015

Dubai was the location for Karl’s cruise collection this week, and was the perfect backdrop for this beautiful collection with strong middle eastern undertones fused perfectly with turn of the century silhouettes and the 1970’s. The location could have been plucked straight from a Connery Bond film with guests invited to relax in their sunken lounges, the walkway runway lined with soaring futuristic palm trees while walls were adorned with lattice made up from the houses signature double C’s.

Miu Miu AW14

What a super cute way to wrap up not only Paris Fashion Week but Fall Fashion Month. After giving us ‘broody sexy’ at Prada last week, Miuccia went to the other end of the scale yesterday at Miu Miu and gave us girl scouts at summer camp (Does anyone remember the film Troop Beverly Hills?). This pretty, shiny, glossy collection just screams rich girls on vacay with vibrant quilted and sensible parkers worn neatly over tennis skirts and dresses. The fun part of this collection however, comes about when your eyes move down south and hit the shoes, coloured glossy perspex ankle boots, finished with pink waterproof material, complete with scrunch ties. This is possibly one of my fav collections of the season as I love the use of colour and slightly pop art  feel to some of the pieces, keeping it fun and bright, a welcome change for winter.

Louis Vuitton AW14

For those out there who have been living under a fashion rock (otherwise known as the real world) then I should let you know that this LV collection was the first for newly appointed creative director designer, Nicolas Ghesquiere, who has been off the scene since his departure from Balenciaga, a year and half ago, where he had been in the drivers seat for 15 years. Now in regards to the show yesterday, I don’t know how to say this without it sounding wrong, so I’m going to just say it and then attempt to explain it afterwards… The Showman has definitely left the building. The designer has arrived…

Now first point I’d like to make, is that by no means whatsoever, do I mean to disregard or disrespect Marc Jacobs in that statement, as anyone who follows my blog, would know my love for him and his time at LV. What Marc brought to the brand was what Karl Lagerfeld brings to Chanel; showmanship, spectacle, show experience along with excellence in creative and technical design. Ghesquiere on the other hand has that simplistic, edgy take on presenting a collection preferring to leave the showiness out of his shows. Now neither is better, in my eyes, I just simply want to point out the obvious differences in direction for shows and collections.

Ok so now that I’ve got that there, lets talk clothes cos they are immaculate in this collection. Ghesquiere has always been known for his finite attention to detail, his penchant for luxe fabrics in an understated way and his understanding of what women actually want to wear, and he demonstrated all of these things yesterday, giving us a slightly late 60’s 70’s inspired woman with clean lines, shorts skirts, glossy fierce dresses and a bevvy of new beautiful bags. The technical detail involved along with wear-ablility factor has given LV back it’s edge, almost returning the house to it’s roots of European design, meaning that these are clothes that will be seen on people, on editors and on plenty of streetstyle blogs, in the streets, not just in editorials. Obviously people with money that is, because I can tell you right now that most of these items will come nicely accompanied with quite a hefty pricetag, lets take that amazing croc jacket for example, the mind boggles.

I was quite sad (probably a bit extreme) at the end of MJ’s last show for LV last september, and despite my admiration and love for Ghesquiere in his time at Balenciaga, I didn’t know how this would pan out, but I can whole heartedly say I’m beyond excited for what lies ahead for both Ghesquiere and LV and I already cant wait for his next collection, so until then, I will save every penny in an effort to purchase something form this collection. Love.

Chanel AW14

It’s hard to comprehend the mind of creative geniuses, its hard to consider how and where they continually find new, exciting, innovative and socially relevant concepts, all of which Karl Lagerfeld seems to do consistently with such ease. Last night the Grand Palais was converted into a fully stocked Chanel supermarket which included a deli, liquor and even hardware section. Each department was stocked full of Chanel branded products, which apparently were for the taking upon commencement of the show, and apparently caused somewhat of a looting situation. Nice. Tim Blanks of Style.com said it perfectly,

“It was entrancing to see the fashion world’s great and good transformed into kids in a candy store by Lagerfeld’s spectacle. An epic celebration of consumerism was also an epic satire of it”. Aside from creating havoc inside the venue, Lagerfeld knew all too well the power the spectacle would have over social media. Not since MJ’s last showing for LV have my feeds (instagram, twitter and facey) been so drowned by the one event so if you weren’t there, you may as well have been as you probably saw more of the show from more angles than the actual attendees. Models wondered the aisles, casually picking & considering items of interest from the shelves, in a way not that dissimilar from when I pop into Woolworths (although I tend to not be wearing Chanel) slowly making their way through the supermarket, via the photographers and giddy onlookers.

But what about the clothes? Yes, there were clothes there too and they were as suburban as I think Karl could go. Sneakers led the way, a carry on from Couture, but this time were paired back with casual options for the everyday supermarket shopper. Knit leggings, leather and velour tracksuits were some of the obvious throws to normalia while plenty of colourful, intricate and excessiveness ensured this remained a Chanel showing. Keeping the consumer in us all gagging, Karl shrink-wrapped handbags in the way you might find your steaks and even utilised the iconic Chanel chain to create designer shopping baskets, most of which carried a variety of new pop art styled purses and bags. And on a final note,  Kendall Jenner walked in the show, but more on that and why it’s worth mentioning, in the next few days. So for now, indulge your inner consumer, and consider what you would have made a beeline for if you had the chance to snap up a Chanel branded supermarket item…

Stella McCartney AW14

So the first thing we need to address is the presence of stirrup pants in this collection. Yes. Stirrups. Hmmm, are we ready for this? Im not sure, but why the hell not I say. I mean we cant disregard them, especially when they look so schmick with Mc Cartney’s supersized Oxfords with chunky rubber and wood like soles. Get on it, I guess. The second thing I’d like to address, is my dislike for the zipper squiggly detail stuff that was going on in the first section of the show (now I think I’ve accidentally posted the pictures backwards, so imagine this first look as the closing look, and so on) mainly because I can already see this being poorly imitated by cheap chain stores and really my mind just boggles.

So moving on, the second part of the show (the first below) was much more to my liking and I feel like it’s where Stella got her groove back,  with hems being raised to rude short with the line between dresses, tunics and tops becoming blurred. It was nice to have a touch of sexy back, cos Stella’s good at it (remember that beautiful sexy sports bonanza of SS12) and needless to say her warmer, wintery woolies and coats were absolutely on pointe, as were her lounge pants, something that seems to be cropping up quite a bit this fall.

Saint Laurent AW14

We’re all used to Hedi Slimane mixing it up at Saint Laurent now and his tendencies towards rock chic, so considering he has done 90’s grunge and 80’s rock it was interesting to see where he would go this season and it seems he has found himself in the English music scene. Screaming, ‘London cool’, models were decked in streetstyle texture mixes of fur, sequins and plenty of leather. This girl is too busy going out to really worry about perfecting her outfit, she’s chosen her cute dress, grabbed whatever jacket was closest, run her hands through her hair and will do her eye liner in the cab.

Glitter adorned most shoes, with the round toe knee high boot taking pride of place in a very London swinging 60’s shape. Skirts were mini and jackets were deliberately mismatched and came in a variety of styles and prints including tartan, sparkle plaid and Sherlock Holmes tweed. While it would have been very easy to, thankfully, Slimane didn’t stray too far from YSL roots, closing the show with his trademark bows, suits and wide brimmed hats, something I was personally really relieved to see still live on in his collections.

Givenchy AW14

Aside from Kendall Jenner walking in the show and aside from Rihanna & Kanye sitting front row and aside from Kim K not being in attendance, Riccardo Tisci was in attendance, fortunately, and as such gave us one of his best collections for Givenchy yet. There was a sense of inate freedom and softness that was jarred with objections and constraints all the way through. Soft printed chiffon dresses and shirts were harshly taped in with lashings of red, white and yellow. Any sliver of softness was quickly balanced with a dose of strict finishings. Even the models were forced into uniformity, losing their brows to the white out and red tape, pulling their eyes sharply back, creating unnecessary eye lifts. Pastel and nude coloured furs were pieces to drool over, while the sheer stocking made a comeback, lightly tinting the legs, something I’m still on the fence about for now…

Celine AW14

Celine is the label to lust after. Phoebe is the designer to know. Celine accessories are the ones to have. The end. Seriously though, Celine is one of the few houses to literally set the trend for the coming season, so it’s good to note then that the platform shoe thing wont be going away any time soon. On the other hand, Im really into this one decorative earring thing and the clear stone bangles, excellent accessorising in my eyes.

The other thing makes Celine what it is today, is Phoebe Philo’s incredible ability to architecturally design pieces that accentuate the female form in an abstract way. This season her coats are closer to the body, focusing more on lengthening and elongating the form, something we would all be thankful for.
