Jil Sander’s Spring Colour Burst: Simply Stop and Stare

20 Jan

To say I am besotted with Jil Sander’s Spring collection will be a sorry understatement. Asides from holding the fashion pack in awe with the ‘minimalist meets maximalist meets kaleidoscope of colour meets couture’ show in Milan, the collection combines many elements I love and find sooo attractive.

Plain white tees + full sweeping skirts + gorgeous bright colour, so simply but exquisitely put together. I am craving every single skirt from the collection!

Asides from the fact one piece from the collection has already made it’s red carpet debut with Kate Bosworth,

you just know that this is one collection that’ll be featured over and over in editorials till we make the transition to next season.

Harper’s Bazaar has done beautiful justice to it already with Fashion’s bright spot, the editorial also features an interview with the genius designer Raf Simons.

I wait with bated breath for even more breathtaking editorials (pardon the pun, lol)

Katy Perry does sleek chic in Harper’s Bazaar

9 Nov

We won’t be getting enough of this season’s ladylike chic it seems. And i for one, don’t mind at all. It’s one style that is right up my alley. The next ‘unlikely’ model to get this style update is Katy Perry in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

And this look gives her a major glam break from the candy floss and teenage dream style. It’s ultimate sleek chic featuring the A-listers of fashion. She’s wearing Gucci, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, i mean, it really doesn’t get more glam, does it?

A mighty feat for the Mad Men series, Fall 2010’s key silhouette is feminine, hour glass, circa 50’s-60’s fashion. Most major magazines are featuring this trend for the October issue and I am totally loving it. Viva Ladylike chic!

So, Elle Korea did a feature tagged ‘Amazing Grace’ with American model Hilary Rhoda. Photography was by Ryan Yoon, styling byVittoria Cerciello.

Haute 50s elegance in Harpers Bazaar en Espanol

2 Oct

With the recent ‘Mad Men’ frenzy that gripped the fashion industry, my beloved fashion era -the 50’s- has scored its place in the limelight. At least until Spring 2011 when the 70’s take over -if fashion week trends are anything to go by. The 50’s represented the peak of ultra feminine fashion, with the hallmark hourglass silhouette, cinched waist and full skirt pioneered by Christian Dior in the early 50’s. It was the era when women wore their hats and gloves religiously and looked to fashion icons, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe for inspiration.

It’s my favourite era because it celebrated the feminine silhouette, was elegant, graceful and all things ladylike. I was excited to see Prada and Louis Vuitton showing 50’s inspired fashion on the Fall 2010 runways. I guess we have Mad Men to thank.

So, Harpers Bazaar en Espanol has decided to give me and all 50’s fashion lovers a treat in the October issue. They celebrate 50’s elegance with this absolutely exquisite editorial featuring model  Michelle Westgeest and photography by Benjamin Kanarek. With the model wearing an original 1957 Dior dress, they couldn’t have paid a better homage to that era.
