Nautica Celebrating the Coolest Styles!

After the amazing Rebecca Taylor show at MB Fashion Week in NYC it was time for the Nautica party at the Empire Hotel’s roof top with a small rectangular pool everybody would love to have in their apartment or house. It wasn’t that relaxing with all the music playing loudly and making guests dancing all over the place, but it was a great chance to hang around with fashion people and take some good photos of standing models dressed in stylish menswear. The Nautica Collection further reinforced the mood for bright colors in Spring/Summer 2012 men’s lines. There were a lot of brightly colored light jackets, swimsuits, polo shirts as well as vinyl bags for the beach which attracted my attention. Most guys were wearing sailor’s shoes and there was tendency towards vivid colors such as coral red, even in pants. All kinds of stripes were the main pattern as usually happens with Nautica’s navy looks. We liked the suede sneakers adopted in many different styles, as well as some cool vests and denim shirts. Most of the people there really appreciated the all-time classic sportswear Nautica suggests in many difference versions once again. The whole presentation ended up being a huge party of fashionistas with a great view and lots of drinks!

Rebecca Taylor on Golden Heels

One of the most fashionably crowded shows was Rebecca Taylor’s. People waiting for that in a long line were well-dressed and seemed to be highly related to the industry. I was staring speechless at all the different styles and recognized in them the whole array of things which constitute a true fashion week. As for the catwalk, I couldn’t stop thinking of how comfortable clothes can be produced when the designer takes equally into consideration comfort and elegance. The end product of this creative process in this case was some  sparkly but easy to wear pieces, some nudes, and many modern shapes. Shades that were braking the monopoly of neutrals were lime, light yellow, shiny sequined orange, lavender, and golden hues.  I also loved the golden ankle-boot sandals for hip styles. Fabrics were soft or fluid, further reinforcing the idea of stylish comfort.

General Idea: Setting the Mood for Color

General Idea kept for us a surprise rainbow of styles and materials. Daring men can now trasform their preppy look into a bold statement empoying an amazing range of vivid shades, very uplifting and very to-the-point. We loved the light jackets and raincoats, the stripes and plaids, the college boy looks as well as those outfits with shorts and jackets. Men seem to remain teenagers for ever and in that case the designer wants to stress the fact literally and evidently! I had to be very fast moving using the camera since most models where running fast on the catwalk. I hope that what you see, sometimes naturally cropped, will look interesting!

Emerson: Urban and Wearable

Emerson was all about wearable, urban style with an artistic twist. I went to the show early this morning (9/9, 9 AM) and despite my FNO exhausting schedule, I felt quite relaxed dreaming of my next summer vacations in the Greek islands. Various shades of blue reminding me of the sea, of grey that is cool and neutral, of absolute black with silvery details and of purple and nudes just made my day, together with the fact that I had a better connection and a slightly deeper knowledge of my brand new iPad device and applications. Nevertheless, it’s still hard to get connected to the Internet at Lincoln Center if you don’t have 3G. So I’ll try to get it. Anyway, the Emerson looks were great, with fluid forms and more tailored pieces in one delicious summery cocktail. I loved the prints, the sophisticated coexistence of party looks and corporate styles and the matching with elegant simplicity and geometrical details. Overall, I could wear almost everything from this collection, indulging myself into the endless game of asymmetries and symmetries.

Causing Pandemonia

Blow up things pop. It’s a scientific fact. And Pandemonia has done just that. The biggest thing to appear this year and blow up all over the Fashion Week front rows and your glossies and rags, is the larger than life (literally, she is seven foot tall) platinum blonde walking, talking post pop conceptual artist. With more plastic than Page 3 and enough helium to cater to a dozen 5 year olds party’s, it is TellusFashion‘s pleasure to introduce to you, Pandemonia…..(interview by Alice Grace Carroll)

“I’m like a play within a play”

Apart from being in the right place at the right time, I am tall and slim – fashion magazines will always like that. I’m like an extra spin on celebrity, event and media. It could be that the glossies love me too because, like them, I am glossy. My self sculpted image is unique. I’m am art.

“It’s visual conceptual art”

My post pop art show is a combination of art, fashion and social critique. I’m currently looking for sponsorship so the show can go ahead.

“My inspirations are adverts”

I have always found it fascinating how they can influence. I have taken their lead and used the tools of the media and advertising. Images say so much.

“I edit myself into and out of the media by choosing what events I go to”

My favourite event o far was the fabulous PPQ Autumn Winter 2011 London Fashion Week. From the moment I stepped out of my black cab, I was well received. The press I got following that appearance was amazing.

“It’s important not to overdress”

When I turn up on the front row of these fashion shows, I don’t want to steal the limelight from the designer, so I try to blend in. But as you can imagine, that doesn’t always go to plan.

“I would say an umbrella”

That is probably the only thing that will never go out of fashion. Especially in this country. It is always raining!

“This is the age of escapism”

Seeing myself in the Sun Newspaper and in print in general, is a dislocation.

“Social media is changing the world”

Who was it who said ‘We have the means of production’? Well, we do now. I have my own blog, it’s a brilliant form of communication. Using my blog I can broadcast ideas, be easily found and comment on things I would otherwise not be able to.

“My night ended in disaster and my speech bubble burst”

I did a charity event for the Haitian Earthquake disaster. I won’t say where it was, but the ceiling was way too low. I won’t ever be going on stages with low ceilings ever again.

Unlike the archetypal socialite blonde bombshell she encapsulates, Pandemonia will never age – and boy, does this make the fashion world stand up and pay attention. Challenging what people perceive as art, she is truly breathing a breath of fresh air, or helium, to the typical London Fashionista.


Dare to bare…

Ladies, it’s time to tone up those tummies because the crop top trend is here to stay. Featured in the Spring/ Summer ’11 collections by Haakan, Chanel and Rachel Comey, the designers made the look their own in very different ways; Haakan in tough long-sleeved leather, Chanel with sheer panels and minimalist monochrome for Rachel Comey. So you better start those sit-ups girls if you want to be in with the fashion ‘it’ crowd this summer…

The A- listers have also been putting their very own style stamp on the trend, with some going all out and  flashing the flesh, whilst others keep it subtle.

 

 

Ever the body confident Rihanna dared to bare both her midriff and perfect pins at the launch of her perfume waaay back in February. She paired the look with elongating nude platforms-see the never-ending legs are probably just an illusion, bet she’s got stumps like the rest of us…

 

On any normal person I’m sure this get-up would look frankly, well ridiculous, but on Daisy Lowe, it just works. It maybe the Versace credentials that makes this Aztec Print crop top and colourful high-waisted skirt combo look great, it maybe Daisy’s quirky style that pulls it off but it’s probably just the fact that she’s a gorgeous model.

Kelly Rowland flaunts her fab abs at the X Factor auditions in this colour pop crop top by Twenty8Twelve, and who can blame her with the hours she must have put in at the gym for a tummy as toned as that!

 

For us mere mortals that may not be as body confident as some of our favourite celebs, a great way to get the look and still keep covered up is by teaming your crop top with a high-waisted knee-length skirt like Daisy’s or trousers. Why not head over to Tellusfashion and check out this Baby Pink Crop Top. Don’t let the cute name fool you, this sexy leather crop top is anything but rainbows and butterflies. Designed by Flik Hall, her work “embodies contemporary luxury, synonymous with edgy restraint” by combining interesting and contrasting fabrics – check her out today!
