Elie Saab Couture

Today hosted the wonderful couture collection for Elie Saab. The collection is what could only be described as beautiful. The palette was fairly neutral with pale pinks, beige and lilac however there was a pop of raspberry in the middle and the show was rounded off beautifully with stunning black gowns… its was romantic and feminine and full of stunning chiffon floor length gowns… a defining moment for the designer, stepping away from its usually quite vivid and bold palettes seen in previous collections. It was so refreshing to see another side to the Elie Saab brand.

Waste not want not

Just been reading all about H & M’s new collection hitting their stores soon which is called waste not want not. The whole idea behind their collection is to recycle any of their old garments which were left over from the Lanvin collection and others I would imagine too  into lovely little reformed pieces! How very ethical of them!!

I think its a really great idea after having worked in retail and seen so many items of clothing going to waste eventually!

The pieces are quite 60s inspired with their little shift mini dress, and bold patterns and colours. Although they aren’t quite my taste I think they will appeal to many a fashionista, who will no doubt love a little vintage inspired find! Now they can waltz into H & M and find something easily without the hassle of having to sift through endless amounts of oddbits in vintage stores. I guess the only thing that would put a vintage shopper off is the fact that the pieces are a little mass produced and wont necessarily be a one off piece that you tend to find in a vintage store. However, knowing that you’re buying something which has been recycled must bring some sort of satisfaction?!

Nice one H & M! I reckon many retailers will follow suit soon!

If there’s one couture show I love the most…

its Dior. No design house can top the theatrical beauty that rolls out on the catwalk like Dior’s Haute Couture line. Its always totally breathtaking and its no thanks to the wonderfully flamoyant designer John Galliano.

The pastel colours and red lipstick are to die for! I love how the pieces appear to be so soft and feminine but have been shown in a somewhat darker way with the dark make-up and glimpses of black netting weaved between some of the dresses and the headwear.

I also love the mixture of reds and neutral tones shown throughout the collection too. There is a real feel of 1950s glamour..

Favourite Place to Shop: Mong Kok, Hong Kong.

I met these two when I was taking photos of some breakdancers at night with my friends in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. I thought these two were adorable! Both eating pocky sticks and had a very cute and lively atmosphere about them. As the other colour trend in Hong Kong besides from black is beiges/browns, I thought these two matched each other’s outfits really sweetly. In the winter weather, as said before, trench coats are very popular this year, whereas ankle, calf and knee furry boots are too. A common trend has been to buy these attachable furs to your boots to keep your legs even warmer. They vary in colour and style. aka. leopard prints. Think of some female ravers with skimpy outfits but long furry boots on…but in a better way suited for winter.


My favourite fashion advert from christmas time!!


Black Swan

I am eagerly awaiting the release of Black Swan this friday, not only does it look like an amazing film, the wardrobe looks stunning! I wish I could be a ballerina! The pieces were designed but the sensational Rodarte and they have done an absolutely amazing job.

BEAUTIFUL!


 

I wouldn’t be surprised if this goes down of one of the most stylish films of the year. I am in complete awe!… I want to be a ballerina!!!
