SPRING 15 MILAN: ONE LOOK ONE DESIGNER

Milan fashion week was quite exciting this year, it’s also one of the most expected with it’s talented roster of designers. Dolce and Gabbana continues to surf on the baroque, embellishment trend. This time the Italian sexy “mama” goes to Spain, the collection was dense, beautiful with pop of red, black, gold and ton of precious accessories. Gucci’s Creative Director Frida Giannini is known for digging in the house 60’s, 70’s archives looks to reinterpret them for the modern woman so we could be a little bit over it, but she succeeds to present a  fresh, modern and yet very Charlie’s Angels collection, with tons of denim! Moschino paid tribute to the world favourite doll, Barbie,  showing how fashion should be fun and not too serious, Dsquared2 also offered a joyful collection, one of the most interesting one in my opinion…

Spring 15 London: One designer one look

The big winner of London fashion week has to be Burberry. I loved how the collection was so casual (compare to what we are used to) but still detail oriented with those delicate sheer tulle skirts and dresses for example, worn with  denim shearling jackets (Hello the 90’s) and sneakers. Yet the Burberry DNA was still very present so bravo! As for Tom Ford, I’m thorned. I liked the collection because it was rock glam, I loved the Bowie and Debbie Harry vibe, but also Joan Jett in the look. What threw me a bit off was that most of the silhouettes reminded me of Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane for some reason. Tom ford is one of my favourite but I wasn’t dazzled this time…

Spring 15 New York: One designer One look

Here is a selection of my favourite designers showing during NY fashion week. I have selected for each collection one look that I liked but the choice was tough as for most of them, I just loved the entire collection! So just consider this as a tiny sample of my best looks. The 70’s are back (again) everything gypsy, hippie and tribute to rock stars, I just can’t resist! It already started in New York with Tommy Hilfiger, Anna Sui and their Woodstock girl, or Honor who offered a romantic version of the era, think Virgin Suicides… The phenomenon is  spreading in London and Milan in the streets but also on the runway, stay tuned!

The Wives

Welcome to a brand new category called “Where I live”. I had the chance to live in different countries, and it might continues in the next couple of years so why not make the other benefits from my experience?! I am now between Lagos in Nigeria and Paris, two opposite worlds but with common factors such as a tremendous cultural, artistic environment and buzzing life. I would like to share with you my favourite spots and anything interesting happening in both cities. Talking of interesting, I went to see a play called, The Wives, starring Evaezi Ogoro, Odenike, Kaylah Oniwo, Olawumi Heavens, Patrick Diabuah and David Azeez. It’s about the drama, rivalry and dirty secrets between the wives and the sister of a powerful man who just died. It’s funny, sarcastic, clever with an unexpected twist at the end. They only had one day of representation at Terra Kulture (future post coming up on this venue!), but check out the production company Paw Studios website  for upcoming plays…
