A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
“Tell me what you wear and I will tell you who you are » could be the name of the 2015 Spring/Summer Julien Fournié show. Influenced by China and the 1950’s, the collection is glamour and revealed a feminine and beautiful woman which will make you dream of her and for whom you would like to write and who will make you happy.
I love this yellow and black accented with a necklace of black as a provocation. I love this deep neckline and simply open up the desecration that lets me see the beauty and the promise of a soft and warm night.
I love simplicity in sophistication. I love beautiful. I like what is simple.
We love you Julien. Continue reading

CHLOE GLAMOUR ATTITUDE CHIC
The soft and relaxed attitude of the Chloe woman has a touch of untamed for the label’s Fall-Winter 2014 collection presented during Paris Fashion Week. The creative director, Clare Waight Keller, sent out the house’s signatures – a parade of easy, tomboyish separates for the Autumn season in a mix of neutrals and pastels.
However, the look is emboldened with luxe multi-colored furs and ruffle embellishments for a sense of surprise in the Chloe woman’s wardrobe.
Elsewhere, dresses and skirts are decorated with raised geometric gold emblems while funnel neckline jackets bring a sporty mood.

Mini and maxi lengths at the Hermès’ catwalk in Paris, with full, straight and tapered shapes, the protagonist of the Hitchcock film, Rebecca, with her duality, her mystery, and her past-era elegance, inspires a feminine and an extremely French women. Christophe Lemaire wants Fall to be a cozy and a luxurious xxx.
The Hermès collection offers rich and warm coats wrapping the body. Beautifully draped and cut coats were key here—done in variations of robe-like silhouettes, collar-less throw-ons, relaxed military jackets and tons of belted fur vests.
His color palette was restrained, almost to the point of austerity. Which made moments like a printed dress and shearling vest especially welcome. There was a lot to like
(and importantly, wear) in this line-up, but as a whole, it was very subdued. It was luxe, luxe, luxe. Think: an entire suit made from sheered fur. The wonder was Continue reading
