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.

Gladiator. Laces & laces again. All in subtlety. 

The Versace’s woman reveals a little bit of her skin but not too much. Everything occurs in detail : one part here, another one there. Only the right places are shown. The belt gives a structure to the silhouette and affines the whole look. There is a geometric touch that creates lightness in this outfit. No need of accessories because the belt like the pumps suffice.

Every look of the Donatella Versace show brings the summer touch we need right now. The make up is not so sophisticated but quite natural : very pronounced on the eyes. This brown shadow creates a mysterious and sensual look. Simple make up, nude pumps, the ton is given: the color’s gradations bring a beautiful unity.

 “You have to believe in what you are doing and you have to have your own style.”, said Donatella Versace at the International Woolmark Prize in February 2013. “It’s no good being too easily swayed by people’s opinions. You have to believe in yourself.”
