Givenchy Resort 2013

I wasn’t aware the fact how much I like resort collections until now, so on the basis of the ‘better later than never’ idea, I chose to introduce you one of my all-time-favourites. Before doing so, let’s claim what does the resort collection expression stand for; I would say resort collections are mixing a bit of the previous fall/winter silhouettes with the upcoming spring/summer collections. It’s a bit of a bridge between the seasons so to say. Even though the Givenchy Resort 2013 collection is not brand new, it had a great impression on me. The collection is like a geometric puzzle that matches the geometric blocks of black and white with swirling paisleys in shades of red, blue, and gold by  recalling a contemporary gipsy flair. Riccardo Tisci, the Creative Director of the french fashion house exclusively balanced the contrast of romantic and sharp, while captured the mid-season’s slightly bohemian from-leaves-to-blossoms spirit. Givenchy presented an almost routine-like visual drama that merged the brand’s signature sharp tailoring, mismatched combinations and strong accessories that melted together with the garments.

Ich war mir bis jetzt noch gar nicht darüber bewusst, wie sehr ich Resort Kollektionen mag, also habe ich mich entschlossen, euch nun frei nach dem Motto ‘besser spät als nie’ einen meiner absoluten Favoriten vorzustellen. (more…)

I reckon not all of us is there  yet, but for sure you all have imagined wearing THAT white dress and saying the magic ‘I do’ to THE one – if yes, then we are on the same track. I probably shouldn’t beat about the bush and just call today’s theme the  wedding, discussed through the fashion point of view. We all love weddings even when you are just a ‘guest’; you can feel the love in the air, get the chance to wear your brand new heels, drink, eat, laugh and dance just like it was yours. But what to wear exactly on such occasion? Some says neither pure white, nor pure black and I kind of have to agree. But there are other factors to consider: the climate, traditions or even a special ‘dress code’ that has to be respected. While it’s a day to remember for bride in over-all white, an outfit to cherish for you, so if the location is outdoor (beach, garden, park) I would suggest to go for a laid-back bohemian look and feel. The maxi dress-pumps-clutch paired with some fresh flowers and wind-blown hairstyle must be the right possible choice. If you are dealing with a little more serious location, you should stick with a knee-lenght dress, let it flow or tighten depending on you style and body-shape. However the matter isn’t only the fit or the length but rather the colour and print. Talk together with your friends and the bride and choose something that is chic and tailored but doesn’t shine more than the bride – wear peplum, sleek prints and bold colours to make your own statement. Shoes and accessories are a fabulous way to vamp up your wedding guest look without upstaging the bride. If your dress is simple, chic and modestly toned, have a little twist with a burst of colour or pearls and sparkle at your ears or feet!

Ich denke, nicht alle von uns sind schon so weit, aber mit Sicherheit habt ihr euch alle schon mal vorgestellt, DIESES eine weiße Kleid zu tragen und die magischen Worte ‘Ja, ich will’ zu dem Einen zu sagen – falls ja, dann sind wir auf der selben Wellenlänge. (more…)
