Agnes B SS 2017 For Lookbook Friday

Fashion - [email protected] - November 4, 2016

Happy Friday everyone. We are head long into the holiday season now. Seems like Fashion Week just wrapped and I have to start thinking about Christmas shopping. When I headed to Paris it still felt like summer and now I need a winter coat, whew what a whirlwind the last few weeks have been; I feel I am on perpetual fast forward.

And though I love New York at Christmas I think I left a bit of my heart in Paris. And so today for Lookbook Friday we will be looking at the Agnes B runway show. I shared some behind the scenes snaps of backstage earlier in the week. And last week we saw some of the snaps I took outside the Palais De Tokyo, now lets look at what all the hoopla was about—the runway show itself.

While the “pajama” sets and pieces like the carnival scene laser printed skirt and and tropical beach printed romper keep the lineup on trend and fresh

A frenetic collection that feels both young and timeless. From traditional a line dresses and car coats to sun dresses and button down wrap frocks one can feel more then a nod to a retro aesthetic. While the “pajama” sets and pieces like the carnival scene laser printed skirt and and tropical beach printed romper keep the lineup on trend and fresh. With a palette of neutrals dominated by black with the occasional appearance of cream balanced by soft pastels and sudden saturated pops of brilliant oranges, minty sapphires and glistening turquoise one can equally find themselves in the city, lunching in a garden or sunning in Saint Tropez. And with longer hemlines scene on many of the pieces, this collection with it’s relaxed effortless vibe and uncomplicated attitude is win win in my book.

Her collection for Spring/Summer 2017 stays true to her roots, but it also offers the wearer more modern approachable garments that can easily fit a contemporary lifestyle

In todays Lookbook Friday we will be looking at another runway show for Oxford Fashion Studios at Paris Fashion Week SS 2017. Jeanine Clarkin is a designer based out of New Zealand who is best known for her Maori inspired street wear. Combining traditional Maori art and design as well as tribal patterns and women’s fiber art of the Wharenui and reimagining these influences to create current wearable fashion.

Her collection for Spring/Summer 2017 stays true to her roots, but it also offers the wearer more modern approachable garments that can easily fit a contemporary lifestyle. With a palette of red, black and white the pieces are striking yet also have an air of comfort and familiarity. Minimalist coats with cape tops and unadorned collars are punctuated by tribal pattered belts and beaded closures. Staying on trend with layered sheer pieces which can found on tops, jackets and jumpers keeps the collection in a more up-to-date vein. And the head pieces which are a nod to festival wear are also in line with the traditional Maori dress and such a great way to combine tribal traditions with fashion forward looks.

ALLIE NYC & Street Style at NYFW

Fashion - [email protected] - October 3, 2016

One of the best parts about fashion week is the street style. I love seeing the looks so many of my fellow fashionista’s put together

One of the best parts about fashion week is the street style. I love seeing the looks so many of my fellow fashionista’s put together. And one of my favorite past times is looking at street style online. So today I am proud to say, I will be sharing some snaps of street style that I myself shot.

I had time to kill between shows for Nolcha, and after strolling outside for a bit and using the rest room, I spied a spot on a bench inside Art Beam and decided to give my tootsies a much needed break from the heels I was sporting. Luckily for me I sat next to quite the fashionable young woman. And the first thing I noticed, was her Fendi bag. It was yellow and had a floral embellished strap.

It was just like the gorgeous Fendi bag I had seen in a magazine except that the one I liked was bigger and burgundy, and had a studded strap and a ruffle detail. I knew her bag was a Fendi, but I inquired on it anyway; of course she confirmed that yes indeed, it was a Fendi. This broke the ice, and the next thing I knew I found myself asking her if she wouldn’t mind posing for photos, and needless to say she was all for it.

She really was the picture of fashion itself

Wearing the perfect ensemble of a sateen floral dress, metallic kitten pumps and according to WhoWhatWear, kitten pumps are having a moment. And her stand out Fendi bag. She really was the picture of fashion itself. And you may have noticed her in the post on Cashmere Song, who she was there to see, as she congratulated the designer Song Hong with a bouquet of flowers.

And yes, she did give me her contact info, and yes I did indeed put said info in to my phone, but thanks to the Google app importing every contact in to my new phone—which I know sounds like a good thing. But not when every contact is every person I have ever emailed. Well you can just imagine. Now I can not find her info. I should of put her information in notes, and then put it in contacts later when I got home. I am sure her info is there somewhere, but finding it? That is another story…

The last show to walk in the China Moment collective was Cashmere Song. A wonderfully focused vision of fashion as an extension of the beauty found in the most natural of elements—fibers. Taking fiber arts to the runway and transforming it, allowing it to find it’s way in the realm of high fashion. Made from the finest eco friendly, raw cashmere and embracing the body in layers, alternating with form-fitting pieces to more relaxed fits, and with head to toe knits and a homogenized palette of cream; the garments in this collection express a quiet beauty, and revel an inner strength of stark earnestness. And with the deceivingly simple lines of the silhouette all the attention is on the exquisite head pieces. Gorgeously ornate creations, sculptures of wool if you will, and an unabashed celebration of fashion as art.

The second show to walk for the China Moment collective was Syu Syu Han. With it’s approachable gothic aesthetic and what I liked to call it’s minimalist bondage detailing, this collection is a bold yet disciplined expression of the female form. With it’s push and pull contrasts of sleek artful draping and austere bodice pieces and the simple black and white palette the effect is subtly intrusive. Not for the demure or the shy, but for those that dare to embrace the edge of fashion and walk that edge proudly.

Fashion Week may be over here in New York but as we know it continues abroad and as any self respecting fashionista knows, it is really Fashion Month. London Fashion Week has just wrapped and with Paris Fashion Week close behind it this wonderful month of fabulous fashion frenzy continues.

And so my coverage of NYFW continues as well and this week we will looking at the second Nolcha Fashion show  I attended. The second show I attended was the Collective show and this season the focus was on China, and this season’s show The China Movement Collective featured emerging designers from China.

It opened with NIKISTAVIA, a clothing line of personalized haute couture, or customizable high end wear. I think my heart just skipped a beat, gorgeous breath taking clothes made to my measurements? Yes please!

and it hit me—all the hard work and the long hours and the dragging myself to sit in front of the computer after working a nine hour day—this is where I belong, this is why I do what I do, this is why I push myself.

The show was a stunner and as I stood behind the third row taking pictures, with the music pulsing, and the models strutting down the runway I experienced a rush of adrenaline, and it hit me—all the hard work and the long hours and the dragging myself to sit in front of the computer after working a nine hour day—this is where I belong, this is why I do it.

From the exquisite fabrics to the striking jewel toned prints and painterly graphics to the contrasting pale pastels, gossamer details, bell sleeved shifts, ruffled cocktail dresses and peplumed frocks, this is one righteously royal collection, fit for the most fashionable of queens. I didn’t want it to end. And rest assured girls (and boys), this is one designer with a bright bright future.

Heading to presentations on my lunch break? Check. Such is the life of a full-time fashionista blogger with a full time job in publishing, but hey, a girls got to do what a girls got to do. On this day which was a beautiful sunny crisp fall day I headed to The Supermarket in lower Manhattan for Kuho’s presentation for SS 2017. Kuho is a Korean based label and this was their first show here in the US.

Creating feminine and uncomplicated clothes the Kuho aesthetic embraces a more unfettered approach to the female form. With it’s minimalist lines, lack of embellishment and relaxed fits the garments in this line up are the quintessential urban statement of effortless yet thoughtful attire. Interest is created via fluid silhouettes, striking prints, sudden bursts of color and custom developed fabrics; like a water resistant wool and a cotton/nylon blend. And the fabrics are as much of the story in this collection as are the designs. Having the chance to see the fabrics in person I can attest to the luxurious yet clean statement that they create.

A refreshing and elegant expression of twenty first century woman

From sleeveless shift frocks , to A-line knit dresses, to cinched waist parachute coats and peplum caped tops, and billowing wide leg trousers the looks in this line up revel an independent, free-spirited take on the concept of femininity. A refreshing and elegant expression of twenty first century woman.
