Saint Laurent Fall 2019 Ready-to-Wear

The new Saint Laurent collection had its usual touch of rock n’ roll, but there was a twist.

The Fall Ready-to-Wear show, obviously, had lots of black and leather.
There was also an added edge with cheetah print skirts, and jewel-toned fedoras.
There were the usual mini dresses, sequins and sleek, masculine suits.
The collection, again (like the last few),  boasted bold shoulders and one shoulder dresses.


 


Sounds like a typical Saint Laurent show…. Up until the lights went down and the colors came out.
Neon, glow-in-the-dark stilettos marched across the runway while wearing the brightest of whites everywhere else.
In this part of the show, there were fluffy white coats and monochrome dresses,
but the more exciting pieces on the runway included neon dresses, sunglasses and other accessories.

Jacquemus Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear

Jacquemus Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear

Simon Porte Jacquemus brought the South of France to Paris last night. The set was filled with laundry hanging out to dry and marketplaces filled with fresh fruits. "The charm of the set prompted one influential Frenchman in the audience to call Simon Porte Jacquemus 'the new Karl Lagerfeld.' That kind of comparison is bound to happen more frequently in the wake of Lagerfeld’s death." Simon really knows how to play with color as there were bright pinks, greens, and blues throughout the collection. He also has a knack for accessories with extra large earrings and micro-sized handbags. I loved this collection and I can't wait to draw inspiration from it in the upcoming fall/winter months.

Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld


Tuesday morning the sad reports came pouring in that a legend has passed. 
Karl Lagerfeld died at 85.

The fashion icon reigned as Creative Director of Chanel for 36 years. He revived the image of Coco while still adding his own touch to every collection. He also was the head of Fendi since 1965, did a stint at Chloe and more recently started his own line under his own name. 
Before his success, hew just a teenager in Germany who begged his parents to study in Paris, fortunately, they let him go. Lagerfeld won a fashion competition in 1954 that was judged by Hubert de Givenchy and Pierre Balmain. Lagerfeld won best coast, while future rival, Yves Saint Laurent would take home the prize for best gown. This opened doors for the designer and soon after he worked as an assistant at Balmain. And then the rest, is history.



Throughout the years, the fashion world has been in awe of his creativity.  From intricately sequined gowns to his tweed suits every piece of his collections stood out.
Not only were the collections outstanding, but the scenes he set at Chanel's fashion shows.... There have been forests and beaches and airports. Each show has brought something new and exciting to the fashion world. 


Now, just days after his death, Chanel is releasing the name of their new Creative Director. Virginie Viard will be taking over the house. 
She worked alongside Lagerfeld for more than 30 years, many described her as his protege. She's been taught by a fashion favorite and now it's her time to take over Chanel. 
She has some big shoes to fill.

Victoria Beckham - Queen of sophistication
Rejina Pyo is becoming my favorite designer at the moment, and her accessories are to die for!
Burberry got a modern update thanks to Ricardo Tisci.
Alexa Chung is always a 70s dream with platform boots, oversized silhouettes, and incredible textures.
I hope to see some of these Emilia Wickstead creations on the red carpet.
Simone Rocha is always dreamy and whimsical.
Christopher Kane went glam punk with an 80s feel.
Loved the JW Anderson show and I think Phoebe Philo fans will gravitate towards this collection while Celine is under new rule.
Shrimps always keeps it fun and fresh.
Molly Goddard killed it again with this hot pink dress that broke the internet. 
Loved the Roland Mouret show along with the puppy pals that joined in.
Got a Yeezy vibe from the A.W.A.K.E. show with nude basics and clear heels.
