Spring 2014 | Check pattern & cie.

Spring 2014 is finally here and it seems that our wardrobes are stormed by a rainbow of patterns. Mix and match them depending on your mood of the day and desire : check meets stripestartan points at fur and stripes slip on suit.

If you wear black and white patterns, no matter the type, you choose elegance (just like below below). Therefore, set off the whole with colorful accessories like both red Chanel and Valentino bags. Of course, you can as well opt completely for the classical look and at the same time make it offbeat with an oversized clutch.

At designers… Balmain ruled the catwalk with hounders toothCaroline Herrera preferred stripes and floral geometry while Vanessa Bruno went back to school – or to the 70s patterns. If you are a stripes lover, have a look at Altuzarra collection; Burberry if you are in a pastel macaroons and lace mood. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac revisited the military pattern and if Jena.Theo does not sound familiar to you, human skeleton has become a new fashion design. Si, si…

Give us coats, we want coats !

My new rubric is officially on ! Let us talk about fashion in its simplest device, in the street. Not THAT far from us.

Because winter 2013-14 has just begun, I find it is a good idea to start with our best friend during this time of the year (I know I am right. And I know exactly how excited you feel when you are thinking about the type of coat you are going to wear this year). Unmasked !

I am particularly enthusiastic regarding coats because some of this season can be really big, oversized and boyish, what I find enjoyable at the highest point. But, it does not necessarily mean that you have to choose these ones. The classical ones will always be there for you, no doubt about it ! As well as those in an officer mood.

First, it is quite important to choose the coat’s shape depending your morphology (I would say that it is something you always have to be aware of… no matter the type of cloth). The same with the color. But, it is obvious that you already know which one suits you better and which one makes you look like… (yes, you know). And the length. That is the point ! You can play with it and choose a two-size-more-than-usual coat being absolutely conscious of your act. So cheeky ! We love it.

Personally, I do really like wearing my coat wide open (even it is -5° outside…I mean…what is most important ? Maybe it could be related to my repeated cold state ?) Anyway. It lets people guess what you are wearing under and gives a kind of fluency to the whole look and to the silhouette as well. And this mysterious Sherlock’s look you get wearing it in this way… Benedict Cumberbatch knows exactly what I am talking about. British like often (you have to excuse my profound love for England and her adored London).

Street Fashion. Street Style.

Street Fashion. Street Style.

Call it as you want to, you prefer to. It is up to you. Nonetheless, let me introduce this new rubric on my blog! It is such a pleasure for me to start writing on street shots because it is something new and I like when habit is broken – even if I find it difficult to get used to change. Anyway. Right ? Somehow change is “almost” always positive. So… let us write and rewrite about street shots of models or – why not – of ordinary people like you and me ! Just think that the street is a catwalk, “our” catwalk, to be exact. My enthusiasm is increasing more and more and that, only due this last thought.

I hope you will enjoy my articles, comments, likes and dislikes about the following selections I have prepared for you. And you, men, do not believe that I would not try to find some fashion treasures on your behalf. Be patient.

Last but not least, I have to specify the reason why I start writing about what is happening on the street. Thanks to Jerome of Never Too Real. (Visit his blog… you will love it : models everywhere, really good shots, and so on.). He asked me – not directly – if it could be possible to create a review on my blog for everything what concerns street fashion. I have to admit I did really like his idea. You know now the “why & how”. Take care, everyone!
