Chloe Spring 2014 RTW

There are designers – only about a few – that no matter what they do, I ‘buy’ it; because it’s cool, it’s me, and most of all it’s consistently reaches the same target in one way or another, season after season – just like Chloè does. Even though I’m not the khaki-type of girl, those desert layers that were executed so effortlessly, that they slowly made me becoming one. Loose fine knit layers, linen trousers in army khaki and off whites ruled the catwalk for the season, while the accents were created at the hips with belts, as well as at the shoulders that were emphasised. Despite some awaited masculine silhouettes, ‘A girl more sensual than before’ was seen on the runway – this is how though Clare Waight Keller, the creative director of Chloé, defined the muse of her new collection. For sure not the colours, rather the delicate fabric choices and revolving transparency gave the feminine touch – a sense of sensuality to the collection. Keller mastered something else than just the layering too; the tight accordion pleats that were so much to-die-for besides the intricate lacework and patchwork prints. All in all what we saw was more of a typically French ease than the usual sophisticated tomboy style – wondering whether we shall call it a sort of Chloè revolution, where a new kind of sensual energy took over. Bravo – I must say – we are sold!

Es gibt nur wenige Designer, bei denen es ganz egal ist, was sie machen, aber ich es sofort ‘will’!

Eigentlich bin ich nicht so der Typ für Khaki, aber die Lagen und die Coolness haben mich nach und nach überzeugt. (more…)

‘Like cycles – seasons, days and nights in permanent repetition and movement. The basis for this collection lies in these two concepts.’ – said the Spanish designer, Justicia Ruano, who’s collection much stood out from the other showcased collections during Barcelona Fashion Week, exactly with it’s laid-back elegance. From the first to the last piece the garments could be worn by every woman who’s craving effeminacy and beauty and sees herself shining in purified designs of sleek lines. The designer strayed away from excess, yet rather decorated her designs with one-shoulder ruffles, tassels, pleats, sequins and mesh layering of soft sheer and lace. After her Spring/Summer 2013 collection Ruano continued to use a neutral palette that consists of nearly nude shades that injected a feeling of cleanliness and purity mixed effortless summer atmosphere. Which piece is your favourite?

‘Wie ein Zyklus befinden sich Saisons, Tage und Nächte in permanenter Wiederholung und Bewegung. Die Basis für diese Kollektion liegt in diesen zwei Konzepten.’, sagt die spanische Designerin Justicia Ruano, deren Kollektion sich sehr von den anderen, die bei der Barcelona Fashion Week gezeigt wurden, abhob, gerade durch ihre lässige Eleganz.
