Haute Couture For Better Times: Vionnet Fall – Winter 2013/4

If there’s something that ALWAYS makes me feel better is fashion; more specifically, haute couture. I don’t know, it makes me think (and believe) that better times will come.

Here, I present you my medicine garments for a rainy day. These are the best looks according to myself of Vionnet’s Fall – Winter 2013/4 Haute Couture Collection.

I summarise this collection in three words: leather, pleats and majesty.

Which one’s your fave?

When it comes down to a runway show, clothes aren’t the only thing shinning up there; truth be told, accessories must be given a big part of the credit as well. They stylise the models, a HUGE deal, mainly because they must show the uniqueness of the brand’s personality through her body. And that’s why today we’ll be seeing Dior’s and Chanel’s accessories from their latest collections. Here they are:

Prada’s Effortless Poise (Part 3)

Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s post presented the third and second places of Prada’s Autumn – Winter 2013/4 Ready- To- Wear Collection. Are you ready to meet the winner?

A_Prada_Autumn-Winter134_R2W

3)   Look A. Palette: Red, blue, black and golden.

  • General Description: thick vertical striped combination of pencil skirt and short-sleeved jacket. Black top underneath. Golden thick belt on top.
  • Combo: Blue and red are always an excellent choice. Why? Because they’re complimentary: water and fire, hot and cold. It’s, of course, one of my favs.
  • Pattern: As we all know, vertical lines are the best of the best for making us look thinner and taller. Exceptionally wide lines such as these.
  • Pencil Skirt: Great for delineating our body. Also, they make you appear taller. Not recommended if you’ve got a bit of tummy, though.
  • Jacket: The trick on this outfit is the way this piece is worn: open. Again, like in the previous look, showing the shoulder.
  • Belt: Marks the waist. Best idea ever. Broad belts are best because they define it more clearly.

So, crazy diamonds, do you agree with the winner?

Shine all over and dream on. It’s the best thing you can do. Always.

Take Care. Lotta Love. Ciao!

Prada’s Effortless Poise (Part 2)

Yesterday we were talking about how Prada made it easy for us to look amazing yet feeling super comfortable at the same time; the funny part? Everyone notices!

This is the 2nd place of this week’s Top 3:

B_Prada_Autumn-Winter134_R2W

2)   Look B. Palette: Black and golden.

  • General Description: high “A” cut skirt, black golden-buttoned sweater, thin golden belt.
  • Sweater: The trick here is to wear it like the model on the picture, unbuttoned at the top and showing the shoulder. Shoulders are one of our sexiest body parts. The huge button in the middle marks that precisely, the middle of the torso. This way our whole structure appears to be more symmetric.
  • Skirt: High cuts on skirts, particularly those who also happen to be “A” cuts, are perfect for making us look thinner. This one’s got an extra point, though. Why? Because of the golden detail in the middle of the garment. Divisions marked by vertical lines are excellent for giving the illusion of a taller and thinner body.
  • Golden belt: Delineates the waist with a huge deal of help of the black thick belt underneath it. Note: Due to the material of the black thick belt, you don’t have to have an extremely defined waist. They’ll do the job for you.

One of my favorite combos. Absolutely.

Well crazy diamonds, got to go! But remember: tomorrow, the first place. Shine all over and dream on, my friends! Life’s pretty great.

Take Care. Lotta Love. Ciao!
