Miuccia Prada’s collection yesterday took some inspiration from the film ‘Female Trouble’ directed my John Waters in 1974. With the film’s theme music featured in the fashion show’s soundtrack. The main character ‘Dawn Davenport’ is a spoiled schoolgirl-turned-juvenile-delinquent who runs away from home and at the end of the film ends up with her in the electric chair. A rebelious school girl feel runs through the collection with tartan, bright leather, ruffles and crop tops. Added with some gorgeous over sized bow details on the shoes, tartan belts, slicked down hair for the ultimate rebellious school girl look.
Nicolas Ghesquiere certainly did not disappoint with his second collection for Vuitton, still showing off his signature cool retro sillouhette. Cargo jackets, woven dresses, sequins, leather and denim all featured strongly. But the bags were also very much present – a Vuitton staple after all – making the brand somehow super cool again…
Trust Karl Lagerfeld to reinvent street style by erecting his own street – Boulevard Chanel” – inside the Grand Palais, for models to strut down to, looking as if they’re just going for a stroll in a mix of classic cardigans (as worn by Gisele), bright prints and reinvented tweedy suits.
The finale saw the models taking part in a mock demonstration, carrying banners and placards saying things like”tweed is better than tweet” and “make fashion not war” while Cara and Gisele shouted through megaphones “What do we want? When do we want it?”
Now that’s one fun show!
A very strong 70’s hippie vibe to this collection with tie dyed inspired dresses and lots of crocheting and embroidered pieces. Added with elements of suede jackets and tan boots, this was a trip back to the future as Fleetwood Mac played. Even Miss Naomi Campbell took a twirl on the catwalk for the end look.
Following his fast food-inspired collection for AW14, Jeremy Scott’s SS15 show in Milan was truly a barbie heaven (or hell) with guests even getting their own personal Moschino-dressed doll on their chairs. A vision of pink straight out of Legally Blonde, this proves Scott keeps on having fun with his pop and kitsch style of ready-to-wear.
And for the hardcore fans, a barbie capsule collection – including tops, bags and accessories, has already been released to buy now! Who can possibly wait until next summer to look like barbie?
