Hear Me Roar!: Monclare Gamme Rouge Spring – Summer 2014 Collection

Paris Fashion Week is loaded with grateful surprises, and Monclare Gamme Rouge’s latest collection is one of them.

MGR’s proposal takes animal print to the next level: animal texture.

MGR’s designers are aware that their key component may be a bit too much, that’s why the cut of the garments is somewhat kept simple.

Remember, balance is the key.

MGR’s Spring – Summer Ready – To -Wear 2014 Collection is defined by:

– Animal Print (Texture!)

– Minimalistic Cuts

– Waist (High Waisted Cuts, Belts)

– Legs showing

– Flats with strings (YES! FLATS!)

– Vertical Zippers

– Vests

Take a look and tell me what ya think! ; )

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.

“Croisière” with “C” of CHANEL

Chanel is one of my favourite maisons because of the way it mixes relaxation and formality without leaving elegance and chicness behind. This season, wasn’t the exception.

The palette of the collection is mostly composed by black, white, creme and navy blue, pretty basic colours easy to combine and adapt to the occasion.

Unusual cuts for skirts and lots of lace are the main components of the equation.

Shorts are a must, and blazers are the perfect complement.

The following are my top looks. My fav ones are both creme coloured: nº 5 & nº 6

Which are yours?
