Princess dresses, extraordinary volumes and precious embroideries: those seen in Paris are dreamy looks. Which we will see wearing the stars in the next red carpet.
The week of Haute Couture in Paris closes, like any self-respecting Fashion Week, dictates the trends of the next season: those of luxury squared, and that, surely, we will see worn by the stars on the next Oscar night. The Haute Couture Spring Summer 2018 fashion shows have made us dream with princess dresses, extraordinary volumes and waterfalls of rhinestones. But there are several common thread that the choices of the couturier have in common.
Starting from the feathers, an inevitable detail in any collection. Totalizing by Elie Saab who uses them from head to toe, they are spectacular on Valentino’s impalpable hats. Maxi and colored, they make the effect of gaudy clouds that follow the models step by step.
Even the frills conquer the designers and from Giambattista Valli is a real triumph of rouches. Pastel tulle, layered endlessly, cover drafts, bodices and puffed sleeves to catapult us into a real fairy tale.
Maxi volumes by Alexandre Vauthier, Alexis Mabille and Stephane Rolland, whose satin cloaks resemble those of the Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino paintings.

The New York fashion week runway shows registers a flight (to Paris), and echoed by raising the price of admission. Or rather, selling the ticket-invitation to fashion shows in September. The IMG , which specializes in organizing events, for years involved in the preparation of some fashion shows, launches “NYFW: The Experience”. The project, aimed at top clients, offers a package of experiences including the opportunity to attend the parades in premium seats, a custom tour behind the scenes Q & A with industry insiders, an opportunity to meet designers and models, visits to showroom, make-up service affiliated salons, styling services, gift bag and much more according to buyer demands. The phenomenon is a kind of legalization of the service offered by some touts who were starting to take foot especially online.
“It is an experience created to selected individuals who want to live close to the energy of the fashion week,” he told WWD Mark Shapiro , co-chief executive officer of WME / Img. “We have an incredible request, the fashion shows are the last mega-event marketing and historically the consumer has always been excluded, this service will give the opportunity to experience the parades to those who are not journalists or buyers,” explains the manager . Prices for personalized services are not available, but apparently the Big Apple continues to attract the attention of the fashion victim.
The announcement of ticket-invitation came at a critical time for New York, to the ever-growing light exodus of luxury brands. Just this week, the list of emigrants to Paris has become even more dense. At Proenza Schouler , Monique Lhuillier and Rodarte , present at the last Paris fashion couture week, it added Joseph Altuzarra who, along with Thom Browne , will march under the Eiffer Tower for ready to wear female September.
The American media have emphasized the phenomenon apocalyptic tones, from Nicole Phelps , director of online section Vogue Runway : “It is one of the most considered brand, the most influential of the calendar; New York has lost a good chunk of his new guard “.
He tried to throw water on the fire Steven Kolb , president and CEO of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. “There are four brands – told Fashionista – who decided to show in Paris for different reasons at different times, and each of them has taken this decision not because there were problems with the NYFW or something wrong with the NYFW, but because there was an opportunity in Paris. If you asked each of them think that would confirm that this is not a negative statement against New York, but the opportunity to show the collections in a different market. “
For now, compared to a loss of these names, the Big Apple boasts the return of Rihanna , who after two seasons in Paris, will bring its line Fenty Puma in New York.
If mini dresses aren’t your thing, get your hands on maxi dresses and take your style to new lengths. An all year round style staple for any girls wardrobe, it’s the perfect choice for chic everyday style and going out glamour. Go for an open-back, body-hugging style for your next night out look, or work it in a maxi dress, cut-out and metallic details perfect for those party season vibes. Let your legs do the talking with a sexy front split, or go for the cover-up and let your attitude to the talking. Add some heels and jewels to your basic block colours, or dress it down with some ankle boots and a killer coat for those casual feels. Whatever the weather, go maxi.

August with shorts.
It’s the hottest month of the year in a lot of places, and in some, extremely dry or really humid. When it’s so warm that you can’t even fathom choosing a cute outfit to run errands or meet friends for lunch in, it’s hard to think of style as a priority. That’s where loose-fitting, airy, and really adorable shorts come in. Forget denim, these flowy embellished shorts are all you need to pair with a t-shirt and sandals. No worrying about tight jeans or a dress sticking to you when it really heats up.
Southern Curls & Pearls
Pom-pom shorts: Floral prints bordered by cute pom-poms or tassels make for a springy look when it’s far past spring.
Pair them with a light, semi-sheer tank like Southern Curls & Pearls and you are sure to beat the heat. Love the heart sunnies, too!
Gal Meets Glam
Embroidered shorts: A pair of gauze shorts in a cotton fabric keeps you cool on the go but also serves as a great beach cover-up.
The embroidery is beautiful and looks great with gold accessories for a glowing summer look.
The Little Magpie
Lace shorts: Breezy satin shorts are perfect for cooling off, but they’re also a great layering piece.
The lace hemline gives them a feminine feel, and I love them with the contrast of basic sneakers and a pullover.
The Sweetest Thing
Scalloped shorts: Basic printed shorts are instantly dressed up with a scalloped edge. Throw a blouse on top and complete the look with chic wedges. The image above shows just how classy a pair of easy-going shorts can be if you combine them with the right accessories and hairstyle.
Seams for a Desire
The short: Asymmetrical shorts were huge last summer and it seems all the biggest fashion bloggers are breaking them out again this year. This is one old trend that has been glammed up and totally transformed. The silhouette elongates your legs like a micro-mini would. And the possibilities for shoe pairings? Endless!

We can all agree that one of, if not your most important accessory come summer time is what sunglasses you’re wearing.
There are two trends we see that are going to make summer 2014.
1. ALL ABOUT MIRROR: Mirror has been the trend for a bit now, NOT A FAD, A TREND. We see this will go strong through summer 2014 and manufacturers are only making the trend stronger by coming out with some awesome design that have mirror lenses. If you don’t have a pair of mirror lens sunglasses it’s time to consider buying a pair right now.The brand doing mirror the best right now is Ray-Ban.
2. ROUND SUNGLASSES MAKE THE WORLD GO…ROUND: Round has been trending for a bit as well but going stronger into summer 2014. Celebrities able to pull the round frame look are wasting no time in rockin’ round shades. Do you have the face shape to rock a pair of round frames? Even if you don’t, and that’s how you want to style, DO IT
I love to have a collection suitable for every type of occasion.
I’ve chosen some of my favorite models!
