Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week


It is still a controversial issue if we should be grateful to Giorgio Armani that many years ago he unexpectedly changed his life trajectory making an abrupt transition from medicine to fashion. After all a personality so energetic and animated as Giorgio Armani could have saved many human lives but instead he would have deprived the world from elegance and exquisiteness, would have impeded our bodies to feel utmost comfort and relaxation and our egos – to experience that so desirable self-assurance and inner strength. While you are pondering on whether to bow down to the iconic Italian designer, Mr. Armani is hotfooting to our springtime wardrobes with his striking and ravishing Emporio Armanispring/summer 2016 collection.

Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

The atmosphere on the runway was somewhat invigorating and exhilarant. There we saw a real powerful cause-and-effect chain. Giorgio Armani made his inexhaustible energy pass through the staggering pieces, which in their turn nestling on alluring models’ bodies electrified them so heavily that the dark-haired and dark-skinned models catwalking were literally radiating super-feminine energy with their tantalizing and mouthwatering eyes.

The fashion titan was the first to tailor and design a feminine blazer and he himself is the one to remind us of it every time, show after show and we are overjoyed to see a myriad of blazers with a myriad of designs and proportions and to rest assured that blazers will never sputter out if under Mr. Armani’s patronage. Once the designer confessed that with the help of blazers he wanted to safeguard women in the man’s world but now he is trying to bring back fragile and graceful women. On the runway show of the Emporio Armani spring/summer 2016 collection we witnessed a palpable attempt to present a woman, who is in business but does not take it too seriously; she is sitting at the meeting at times distracting her attention and thinking how she will dress up tonight to kill her beloved. This is a real woman and this is what the contemporary world needs the most.

The show opened with a lightweight charcoal grey trench with abstract patterns on it paired with cadet grey slouchy pants. It continued with a range of staples of different grey shades. A typical going-to-work satin grey bomber jacket, a satin trench with high neck paired with the same material languid pants were very soon followed by more romantic options by adding a tiny detail – little elegant scarves tied like romantic bows. A couple of floral printed pieces like a grey-blue jacket with pink-black flower patterns on it or densely flower decorated shorts with matching little scarf, as well as a sleeveless top all covered with flowers let alone a flowerlike detailing on it came to enhance the lovey-dovey atmosphere of the show.

We were definitely feeling that it was becoming hotter and hotter, more and more passionate. Cold colors were being gradually alternated by warmer or more vibrant ones. Dirty pink, gray black dresses, shorts and blazers were gently becoming coral pink, tawny, tangerine and persimmon ones and with the progression of shades the catwalk was getting brighter thus conveying a sunny and vivid springtime mood around. One of the tops looked like a super-natural assembly of pink and orange flowers and leaves thanks to the designer’s exclusive ability to perform sophisticated and intricate cutouts.

Bohemian was the finale of the Emporio Armani spring 2016 show when chiffon started supervising. Fluid chiffon multicolored pants, skirts and tunics had really nothing to do next to the boho chic high-low frocks with one-sleeve designs. The closing model with her intriguing ensemble and languid catwalking left everybody dumbfounded and amazed with Mr. Armani’s never-ending aesthetics.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Parisian retailer Colette for a pop up store. From June 22th to July 18th, LV will present their menswear fall 2015-2016 show collection on the upper floor of Colette’s premises. This will be Louis Vuitton’s first time presenting their menswear line at a locale other than their own stores.

Louis Vuitton’s fall 15-16 collection was a tribute to the creations of Christopher Nemeth, the late English fashion designer and artist. Developed by Kim Jones, Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton men’s collections, the collection references the cord print and the “Harajuku”-spirit silhouette that inspired Nemeth’s work in Japan.
The pop up store will also sell an exclusive item, the Twister tennis shoe that is covered in the cord print and is an eye catching sporty- luxe item with its pristine white and blue design.

Pre-Spring 2015 Womens Chanel: Bags

Other Brands

chanel_pre-spring-2015-womens-bagsBecause there is more to Chanel than just your standard Classic Flap or the 2.55, here are 6 other bags from the Pre-Spring 2015 Womens Chanel collection that will hopefully pique your interest and warrant a trip down to your nearest Chanel boutique since they are also already in stores by now.

Besides the Deauville Denim Bowling that was featured yesterday (and a must-buy in my books), here are the 6 (clockwise from top with sizes and prices) for your kind perusal. First up, the Small Calfskin Messenger that comes with its very own top handle and zip pocket at the back. The quilted leather darling comes in at 18 cm by 12 cm and will retail for SGD4280.

Next, the retro-looking Small Jersey Flap (22 cm by 12 cm) that lets you wear it at least 3 different ways. Priced at SGD4110, it’s also a fuss-free bag that’s easy to maintain. Then there’s the tiny night-out-on-the-town number, the Lambskin Flap Bag that’s a wee 20 cm by 11 cm. Retailing for SGD4300, there’s something about its grey-lilac leather and burnished gunmetal hardware that’s quite sexy as well.

Ok, so it’s not exactly new, but since the Boy Chanel is neither a 2.55 nor a Classic Flap, it can be included in this lineup. Measuring some 15 cm by 9.5 cm, this little darling comes in exotic galuchat (or stingray in layman terms) that’s then trimmed with lambskin and chunky burnished hardware.

Looking almost like the Classic Flap (but not) is the Lambskin Flap Bag, another retro-looking number that comes with an additional flap of leather that’s also part of the bag’s built-in ‘security system’. Coming in at 26 cm by 15.5 cm, this quilted leather number will set you back by SGD5770. Last but not least, the Fringed Denim Flap Bagthat’s more Laneway than ZoukOut, another bag that’s also built to last, what with its denim body that’s also virtually indestructible as far as mould and mildew is concerned. Priced at SGD4110, the 26 cm by 15 cm sling bag is also one that’s great for casual weekends in town, a travel sling for nearby vacation haunts, and of course, that hipster music festival.

Dior Holiday 2015 Couture Palettes


The holiday season seems to have inspired our favorite brand Dior to the fullest: shortly after we learnt about the launch of the gorgeous Dior State of Gold holiday 2015 makeup collection, here came the news about the launch of the Dior Holiday 2015 Couture Palettes. Moreover, the launch date for sales is the same – this November! Now this is overwhelming, as we have hardly ever seen such an abundance of makeup kits that are absolutely to die for.

Dior Couture Creations Palette for Face, Eyes & Lips ($89.00) (Limited Edition)

The first thing to notice here is the classy package, which is a black wallet-like case with zipper containing everything you need for your entire couture makeup look (except for mascara) – powder, blush, eyeshadows and lip products with three travel-size applicators. These include double-sided brushes for eyes (sponges) and lips and a fluffy angled mini brush for powder and blush, which are definitely easier to use.

• Diorific Face Powder in No. 001 Rose d’Or
• Dior Eyeshadows in matte peachy pink, silver-taupe, purple and shimmery gold, champagne and black
• Diorblush in matte baby pink
• Dior Addict Gloss in a rosewood-pink shade

For those of you who love bold eye looks both on a daily basis and for special occasions, Dior offers its Couture Smoky Palette for Eyes & Lips with incredible lovely shades and textures. This palette will be the favorite of the lucky owners of green and blue eyes, as the purple is a 100% match with those eye colors. It comes with a two-sided applicator with sponge and fluffy brush on both sides.

• Dior Rouge in No. 468
• Lip Maximizer in watermelon-pink
• Dior Eyeshadows in shimmery beige-gold, mauve-purple and matte merlot-brown

Dior Holiday Couture Collection Pret-a-Porter Nude Palette for Eyes & Lips ($62.00)

For those of you who are more into classic nudes and browns to fit any occasion, Dior has prepared this palette, which is similar to the previous Smoky palette, but has colder shades. It includes:

• Lip Maximizer in Peachy-Pink
• Dior Rouge Lipstick in No. 766
• Dior Eyeshadows in Champagne, Bronze and matte Cider-Brown

Dior Backstage Brush Set ($95.00) (Limited Edition)

Dior Holiday 2015 Couture Palettes

Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Set ($28.50) (Limited Edition)

Finally, yet importantly, here comes a small set with Dior mascara and a small five-color eyeshadow palette (first released in fall 2014), which will make your eyes especially attractive and proper looking for both formal and informal occasions. The mascara is not travel-size for a simple reason – it is never too much!

• Diorshow Overcurl Iconic Mascara (Full size)
• Dior 5-couleurs in No. 056 Bar with shades Classic white, black, peachy, grey and beige-bronze (to act as a transitional or prime color)
