Jason Wu is a Taiwanese-Canadian fashion designer based in New York City. He is most famous for designing the dresses of Michelle Obama on several occasions and to the woman with the crave for luxurious edge. To stick to the latter, Jason Wu invites women in each season to celebrate fashion as the most beautiful art expression. His Resort 2013 pieces embrace edgy effeminacy, delicate floral ornamentation and detail rich embellishments such as custom-made stones for Wu by Swarovski Elements. The designer playfully combined the dramatic pieces with basics in his collection that result a beautiful, yet cool mixture of styles. The garments furthermore spoke of quality and wearability that make his design even more desirable. Not to forget about the accessories, Jason mastered the bags as well that came in three-color combos and reflected the electric hues of the clothes, and also shoes ranged from evening sandals to pumps and fancy flats. All of it please!

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…)
Looks like H&M is being highly optimistic about the coming of summer, and just recently published probably their all time hottest campaign with Beyonce. The editorial was shot on the beaches of the Bahamas and features both a print campaign and a commercial. The idea behind the collection is that all women can be all things: strong, vulnerable, sensual, maternal, fun, flirtatious despite age or body-shape. ‘I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun and affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial’- says Beyonce after the photo-shoot. The swimwear and resort range will be available from the beginning of May in H&M stores worldwide and online. Cannot wait to pick up a piece or two!
Es sieht so aus, als ob H&M sehr optimistisch ist, was das Herannahen des Sommers betrifft, und erst kürzlich wurde die wahrscheinlich heißeste Kampagne überhaupt mit Beyonce veröffentlicht. (more…)
