ImageWear fur or go home.

After “go big or go home”, that means to maximize your coats (because all we care about this season is the outside and not what is under), it is the turn of fur. Yes, I KNOW, this is NOT THAT KIND for the concerning animals, but there is the “faux fur” alternative those for who would feel bad wearing such a coat. On the other hand, we can not deny that it gives a certain presence.

Belstaff prefers to stay more or less classical, but at the same time comfortable in using fur from part to part, especially emphasizing on the hood ; this breaks the classical rules with a casual touch. And we love it ! Just because the leather-fur mix  in such a mysterious dark brown-black color is young and dynamic. And look at these boots ! You want them… yes, I know, I know. Feminine and elegant, but also adventurer, ready to face up to winter 2013-14. Good choice.

Donna Karan. Fur, as well, but something different, isn’t it ? I would first suppose suede… you guess what follows. Donna Karan’s look is really really noble ; almost proud. Come on ! Not THAT arrogant (only the little bit we need to make our worst enemy jealous… pleasurable). Second, the length: assymetric, longer than Belstaff’s coat and graphic, that’s the point. These high-knee boots are simply gorgeous and match exactly the whole look.

Last but not least, those for who prefer to wear fur subtlety, the next option is for you. Maiyet and Versace sublime their looks in adding some fur accessorizes; it is more discrete, but not less elegant. It is only a different way to play with this game that is fashion. Because we are all different, take everything you can from the runways, mix, match… and find your style.

3.1. Phillip Lim A:W 2013-14 RTW details

Smile like a vamp, consume Autumn 2013.

We want asymmetry, we want hairs, we want patterns ! Mix without excess. Mix & match, try & shine. And calm down (not to tire the eyes) in wearing some leather (always a sure value). Concerning accessories, 3.1. Phillip Lim chose sobriety with preppy black leather shoulder bags. The body needs some liberty, space ; movement is synonym of amplitude. Wear large coats and be aware that Winter 2013 expect you to dare : maxi length is permitted. Don’t think too much, don’t hesitate too long, but act! (be the first and make them all jealous!)

Colors stay in nude and neutral shades, but an illuminating touch would not be denied. Not at all. Kaki fur on a black leather bag, complete petrol coat and, last but not least, imposing geometric earrings. Ok, we want to look natural, but we won’t forget the little detail that boost our whole look.

We love wearing shorts in winter ! It is feminine, refreshing and fashionable. Prefer the large ones because more elegant. Classical in every circumstances if you choose the perfect length (mid-tigh). 3.1. Phillip Lim also teaches us how to match the color of our shorts to the one of pretty details on our shirt. Doesn’t he ?

Time for eyebrows to get wild ; don’t try to domesticate them. Want Cara’s mischievous look ? Brush your eyebrows in giving them some dynamic. That’s it ! Autumn 2013 wants you to be sophisticated, but, of course, not too much, break the rules with your savage side then. Play with both and you’ll get THE look !

Couture Autumn/Winter 2013-14 : Alexandre Vauthier & Bouchra Jarrar.

Choose your side : black or white ?

La Haute Couture.

A fairy tale in our grey and gloomy everyday. Need of evasion ? Dive into this world of creativity, elegance, sobriety & liberty. Be who you want to be, wear what you want to wear, and the others… it doesn’t matter.

Alexandre Vauthier and Bouchra Jarrar created for you the strength you need to affirm the powerful woman you are (or could be). Narrow waist blazer, rolled up sleeves or not, it depends on your mood : a “yes” if you want to “rock” your look, a “no” if you prefer to stay classical and keep your fragile pretty wrists hidden. “Wear pants”, because Today’s woman knows how to assume her femininity without skirts or dresses. Vauthier offers a kind of black silky harem pants (in preference) those for have long and thin legs, while Jarrar follows the classical way with some traditional white-creme carrot pants to extend the silhouette.

Asymmetric belt at Vauthier & chained one at Jarrar. Which one will be yours ? The first sort is already part of the pants and look more sophisticated ; the second one comes closer to the “officer” style, asymmetric as well, like a sparkling jewel hanging on your waist.

I don’t want to influence you at all, but be aware that you will be nothing more than simply fashionable wearing WHITE this winter. Dare ! And impress. (As well as fur and feathers.)

What is the most important to show this season ? Your face. Play with hair and make up : byzantin, classe, bleu, nude, aristocratique, audacieux, chargé or mutin, make up can be of any type. The choice is large. Be imaginative, be fresh for Autumn/Winter 2013-14 !
