FASHION REPORT SS'15; LONDON FASHION WEEK

12 September 2014; Now, It's London turn for Fashion Week. A brand new day to catch latest trends and hot items for this season straight from the runway. New York treated me very well this year I managed get connected with fashion people and catch many key trends for Spring/Summer. Although I love so much with American fashion and style, I'll never put aside my inner London love affair. Yes, I love London with the hustle bustle of the city, beautiful architectures and vibrant Londoner with their own unique style. Every corner can be your inspiration. That's why London become one of the best fashion capital in the world. The Londoner are very smart to show their style everyday on the street or attending an event.

On the opening day of London Fashion Week was reserved for all emerging talent. Based what I observed each of new designers presented their collection very consistent and creative. The industry needs young raw talents to embark London's fashion to another level in future. Giving them the it chance to express their vision and ideas. They may more innovative when creating something fresh and different than a normal designer usually do. Who knows we will found the next Lee McQueen (May his soul rest in peace). Fashion Week is a great place for creative people to gather around and share their thoughts. I love Londoner fashionistas style. They're very eclectic and know how catch the photographers attention.

 
I started my observation with Singaporean designer based in London, Ashley Isham. Opening of his SS'15 collection show was one of Malaysia's Supermodel, Tinie. Ashley presented his collection more to Grecian goddess garden party inspired with a pinch of hip hop into his designs. Although it look simple but I loved the details and silhouette each of his designs. Its easy to move and wearable. Ashley plays a lot of bright colours like Fuchsia, Red and shimmery Gold. The collection really represent all about Ashley. I love the Grecian dresses, sunday dresses, pure white lace mermaid dress with long fringes, silky printed sleeveless shirt and shorts, classy plunging bathing suits and Ashley's creative hats. Overall, the whole collection stand its own standard of class and uniqueness. I would like to see something more different, creative yet classy from Ashley in future.

 
The lovely duo designers of Marchesa, Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig has celebrated Marchesa 10th Anniversary back their hometown London. The designers presented their SS'15 collection inspired from hippie fantasy and rock n roll gypsy. I like the concept. Few Georgina and Karen's dresses were well patched with colourful laces and beautifully embroidered flowers in soft palettes. From the white tulle ruffles covered with embroidered colourful floral dress, sheer off shoulder fishtailed dress with embroidered rosette to the white silky blazer partner with hand painted blue phoenix until to Marchesa beautiful bright fuchsia voluminous high waist skirt with heavy colourful embroidery and light blue sheer gown with plunging neckline detailed with beautiful patched flowers all around on the top and down centre. The whole collection were amazing. If you like something romantic, enchanted and playful in your wardrobe do pick Marchesa.

 
Alexa Chung, Lana Del Rey and Cara Delevingne are among famous names become the brand muse and marked their names onto bag collection. This year Cara bagpack was listed as one of the it bag. Yes, I'm talking about the famous UK brand, Mulberry. Mulberry were one of Londoners favorite brand especially women's handbags. Mulberry presented their SS'15 apparel Collection that not so adventurous like other brands do. It was safe but I loved the way it been made because most the designs are wearable. Based what I've observed from the presentation photos Mulberry designs were well-tailored and synchronize. I like Mulberry coat with asymmetrical cut at the bottom, oversized coat, mid length-sleeve dresses with A line silhouette, tops with pockets and skirts beautiful in delphinium and cornflower prints from English Garden theme and a pinch of military inspired. Overall, the collection look fresh, clean and very English. This season bag collection were amazing. Mulberry offers the best for their loyal customers. If you love simplicity chicness, Mulberry may for you this spring.

 

Our Lips Are Sealed was played at Topshop Unique show and walked by leading ladies Cara and Jourdan. It was a joyful moment went for a trip down memory lane while watching the models walked. Topshop presented their SS'15 the faded glamour of the British seaside. Something more easy and youthful. Love the element of girly and tomboy in these collection. This season you will get something sporty like more stripes jersey top and high waist pants, boxy jackets great from day to night, comfy sweatshirts, sexy body skimming dresses or something girly like stand out pleated dresses and skirts, flowing frill dresses, playful graphic floral print tops with hot pants and sheer dresses with crystals. Topshop also presented cool accessories from bangles, earrings and bags. Based what I've observed, the whole collection was fearless and fun. If you someone active, fun, doesn't like something cliché but stylish; Topshop SS'15 might for you.

 
An style icon nearly three decades and well-known for Menswear; Paul Smith commercially success around the world and one of highly respected in the fashion industry. This season Sir Paul Smith presented his SS'15 women collection more tailored, classic with a twist of modernity. The best thing what I like about Paul's style everything is modern but with classic touch, easy to mix match and wearable. This season Paul Smith play with stripes, floral, neutral palettes like khaki with shades of blue, black and white. From Paul's soft shouldered tailored jacket, round neck shirt with leather fringes, bomber jacket, beautiful drop waist dress with pleats, classic cut blazer, modern sleeveless coatdress until to his shirt tunic everything is perfect. Based what I've observed, the whole collection is consistent and truly Paul's lady. If you searching something different, fresh with manly elements Paul Smith is for you.

 
From Keira, Rihanna, Alexa to Beyoncé and Lupita wore her beautiful bright digital prints dresses; Mary Katrantzou a designer from Greek always surprise her loyal customers and fans with bold colours and futuristic shapes. This season Mary presented her SS'15 collection Less bold colours; More artistic. You have to be more imaginative and allow yourself be fearless to understand this collection. I loved what Mary presented on the runway. Model paraded her beautiful designs in sandy-soft palettes, flirty sheer fabrics and embroidered with alien garden motive. I'm impressed with Mary workmanship everything so unique, different and regal with her own way. Based what I've observed from her tectonic plates cutout top with sand shimmery detail, beautiful long-sleeveless silky coat sexy, sheer dresses with alien flora and fauna motive to her simple lacey embroidered dresses were amazing and mesmerizing. Mary Katrantzou, you're a genius!

 
Erdem this year brings the dark tropical jungle to the stage. It's one of my favorite background setup for this season London Fashion Week. The moment I saw the first model walked on the runway straightly in my mind that Erdem's inspiration; Victorian, Botanical Garden and Darkness. This season Erdem Moralioglu presented his SS'15 collection inspired by a story of a Victorian Botanist, Marianne North. Throughout the show Erdem produce beautiful designs charmed by amazing details with Victorian silhouette. From his floral motive or feathers camouflage prints sheer dresses, deep v halter, covered sleeves or sleeveless full with soft little feathers to his amazing full body lace dresses and gowns; these collection were sinisterly tres chic! Erdem succeed to brought something dark and historic can be sexy and felt so now. I, myself fallen in love with all his SS'15 collection.

 
I loved the clean vision of Christopher's spring and summer. The birds and the bees as his inspiration and Burberry theme for this season collection. From the big see through tent with bee and dragonfly graphic, colouful runway with cute bees and bugs illustration to Burberry's invited guests everything runs perfectly. The talented James Bay as the entertainer and he entertained throughout the show only with his guitar. I feel enjoyed and it reminds me an English spring romance and summer kisses. The songs that he sung really relate to the designs. Based what I've observed, for this season Christopher Bailey bringing bold colours, graphic and graffiti and sporty for his loyal customers. There are separate pieces that you can mix match in the collection something dressy but you can turn it to casual. I loved their SS'15 bag collection; the cute graffiti with bugs,floral illustration pouches, cool document bag and men satchel bag. From the denim jacket hemmed at the bottom with light feather, sequins or layered sheer skirts and dresses, ruching sheer tulle dresses with big ribbons to this season signature look graffiti, bee and dragonfly prints on classic Burberry trench coats. It's fun, vibrant and whimsical collection.

 
This season he gives you a glimpse of early 80's rock, a pinch of 70's glamour and fearless 90's, Tom Ford knows to create controversy with his own fashionable way. His amazing workmanship blend with quirky chicness make he's so special to this industry. I loved what Mr.Ford presented for this season it's more daring, dark and full with sex. From Ford's tailored blazer and collarless coat, liquid metallic long sleeves top, high waist sleek bell bottom pants, daring sheer tops, metallic mini dresses covered with black sexy pantyhose to his white flowing gown with sequins detailing on thin strip sheer fabric top. I just love all the sex in Ford's collection. The clothes, messy 70's rocker chick hairdo, smokey eye shadow with kissable glossy lips to Ford's killer 7 inch platform clogs; It blends perfectly. Someone with high confidence and passionate with fashion will dare to style Ford.

FASHION REPORT SS'15; NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

4th of August 2014 finally has arrived. I'm sure for those who are involved in Fashion Week feel excited but nervous. I, myself in Malaysia feel the same like you too. This year, I feel very grateful and thankful that my local loyal readers able to observe a pinch of New York Fashion Week via live stream from my blog. I guess; I'm on the right path and connecting to the right circle. I always love New Yorker style everything so inspirational even on the street. I agree with Carolina Herrera's recent statement that please dressed up accordingly not because to chase latest trends. Fashion, People and Style are too subjective to elaborate. If you asked me for an advice about Fashion or Style, I'll answered; Fashion is trend while Style is your Confident. Fashion were been created by someone and Style is You. Be yourself but constantly change and learn new trends that suitable for you. No harm to try something new, right?


Everyone feel excited on Day 1 and keep on guessing what will be in or out this season. My prediction for Spring/Summer key trends are more to Street Chic, Baggy-Oversize, Crazy FloralBright and Neutral palettes and Uniqueness. Nothing that so precise. I love to discuss trends with my fashion friends; trends that stay or what will be in and what will be out. Day 1, The opening show was by Nicholas K. Throughout the show based what I observe, Nicholas present his collection more rugged with a twist of safari explorer touch in earthy colours. I fallen in love with their head wraps, jackets, fluid layering technique and easy shirt dresses. Simply WOW! Playful fringe here and there giving the whole collection more interesting. I have the feeling that Rihanna will style one of Nicholas K soon.


BCBGMAXAZRIA show were mesmerizing. Once more Lubvio succeeded showing her capability to turn bohemian style onto another level of chicness. Based what I've seen, Lubvio presenting her BCBG collection more layer by layer fluid dresses with leather jackets in pastel palette. Some pieces in beautiful floral prints, oversized sleeves, a pinch of origami folds, soft silk midi and maxi and sexy high slit dresses. Most of BCBG dresses top and jackets have architectural and soft elements. I love what BCBG present to the runway; something structured combined with soft. Simply très chic. I'm sure Rachel Zoe will love and style it flawless chic on the street with latest BCBG's dresses this coming spring.

The moment I saw the 1st and 2nd model walked on the runway I take a few seconds to analyse what Richard Chai Love presenting for this season. I didn't say that the whole collection are ugly. I see based on it's separate designs example; silk neon trench coat, digital stripes, shinny sequins crop tops and pants or beautiful Richard's asymmetrical silky dresses. Its not proper but rigid and I love it! Simply urban unique. The complete collection represent youth, free-spirit of a young urban lifestyle. End of the show, I feel satisfied and impressed what Richard's present for this season. I can imagine someone sassy like Rita Ora or Rihanna to style Richard's collection.


The background were very artistic with white layers of big frames on Honor show. Simple yet profound. I love collection something that an uptown lady will wear daily. The femininity is all there; I love the soft sheer blouses with big bow or bell shape sleeves, amazing fluidity on the long dresses, playful ruffles, laser cut out and little detail of candy colours were yummy! The prints are beautiful! Each of the designs have a strong 60's vibes and I love it Giovanna. Honor collection SS'15 simply chic and elegant.


Day 1 shows continue with Tadashi Shoji where he present his collection in heavenly lace. Based what I see Tadashi's whole collection inspired by Italian romance. You can see beautiful intricate details in each of his designs. I love Tadashi's trench dress and long layered lace dresses. The soft elements between light weight lace and chiffon really create an amazing illusions. I like that Tadashi choose today's silhouette; more straight and flare. It brings the collection more youthful with a pinch of classic chicness. Yes, Tadashi really captures pure elegance.


Tome; a combination of Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin art minds really catch my attention. Ryan and Ramon presented their SS'15 collection something profound and tailored. I can see there's Indian or African influence in each of their designs. I love the collection colour palettes; Metallic so chic for Spring & Summer. Tome plays with pleats, fluidity of silk satin, cropped and wrapped tops. Although, it quite plain but I feel impressed with the silhouettes are well-tailored. Don't play with ordinary, it may become extraordinary this season. Someone hip and trendy can style Tome perfectly.


I been waiting and feel excited want to see what a blogger will present on the runway. Yes, I'm talking about the famous blogger Marissa Webb. Marissa's collection was positive and I believe modern young ladies will love what she present for this season to the audiences. Everything were wearable. It's easy to dress from day to night. She really a savvy eye for commercial items. I love Marissa's origami folds on the trench coats, beautiful sheer sleeveless jacket (it bring something sporty but ladylike), sexy skinny pants, shirtdresses and unbuttoned tunics and the heels were amazing in laser cut gave it an edgy look. If you're looking for something simple, street chic and unique but not breaking your bank account. This brand maybe for you.


Day 2, a brand new day to explore new trends and Day 1 was a good blend I'm looking forward to check what will the others presenting on the runway. I start my fashion day with the 2 Australian designers under Zimmermann. I remembered the first time I saw Zimmermann collection back few years ago there few similarity like Chloe. Something sweet but unique. Nicky and Simone presented their SS'15 collection full with ruffles, layered lace, pleats on skirt, unique origami folds jackets or trench dresses, sheer and oversized shirts with fluid printed 70's inspired dresses. I love the whole collection. It's fun and flirty, something that suitable for spring romance in the city.

The whole collection beautiful with fluid dresses, cool tops with details, fitted overall, buttoned skirt with slit, big floppy hats and sassy fringe bags. Rebecca close her show with models and guests wearing 3-D glasses. Something different to end a great show. Based what I've observed, the whole collection are wearable and fun.

I, myself falling in love with Monique's SS'15 collection.


One of New York favorite designer, Jason Wu presented his SS'15 collection on the 2nd Day of New York Fashion Week. I always adore Jason's artwork. This season Jason come out with something sleek yet fierce in beautiful materials like liquidly silky satin. Most of his designs were well-tailored although the fabric that he choose look a little languid but chic. One thing that I like about Jason design is the silhouette and his bag creation. For these collection you can see sculpted structure, asymmetry and soft shoulders. Play with silky satin, organza, lovable suede and lace, a pinch of tweed with artsy brushstrokes as fabric prints makes the whole collection more interesting. The neutral palettes really match everything. On the runway I saw amazing tailored suits and long coat, wraps dresses and skirts, cool shirts with shirt dresses and sexy fluid dresses totally LOVE IT! Congratulation Jason bringing the sophistication to another level.

From the 1st day he joined Project Runway, I always adore with his artwork and his passion. This season Christian presented his SS'15 collection more sculptured with aquatic hues. I really love the collection that Christian presented on the runway. The lovely crystals embroidery in aquatic hues as the main attraction. Based what I've observed, most of his designs were fitted, straight and flare silhouettes. Not only that Christian using best materials like satin, chiffon, hammered silk Carmeuse combined with brocade, sequins and crystals for his collection. I like Christian's oversized and trench coat, strapless and halter dress, shift dress and cropped blouse. Simply elegant! Few Christian's creation suitable to style on the red carpet like the Golden Globe and Oscar.

Everyone in the industry can't wait to see what Alexander Wang will presenting for SS'15. The moment Alexander's show started and the 1st and 2nd models walking on the runway my prediction were right. You can see techno sporty meets chicness. Most of his creation amazingly innovative. One by one, from top to bottom everything was perfect. I like the streamlined silhouette, stretch materials with neon colours in Alexander's dresses, fitted tees, fitted jackets and edgy oversized shirts. The bag and footwear designs are brilliant. I love the multi-coloured woven and triple strapped high pumps. Not forget Alexander's cool sporty shoulder bags & clutches.

Love Carolina's shirt dresses, fluidity skirts and gowns, cropped jacket with beautiful tops and trousers with excellent silhouettes. Must have for your next season wardrobe.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of The Row presented their SS'15 collection in a quiet yet elegant runway show. Most of the collection are oversize, loose and long length. I believe most of The Row audiences wondering why we didn't wear clothes like this every day. We probably won't be because we live in dirty cities. But I'll consider to wear something like this for my vacation. I remembered this style was in trend back in the 90's. The Row makes it more refined and classy look. I love what The Row presented on the runway. The fabrics were fabulously amazing. If I not mistake The Row using raw silk, organza and high quality cotton in their creation.


Reem Acra presented her SS'15 collection more glamour and sophisticated but less demure with sexy cutouts. Based what I've seen, Reem Acra's SS'15 Collection inspired from the glitz and glam 20's in Paris. Heavenly in sheer fabrics with shimmery to give it a touch of opulence in each of Reem's creation. Decorated with shinny crystals and sequins, embroidery and laces on beautiful fabrics that Reem used. Reem Acra SS'15 collection overall were positive.

Love the feminine silhouette, colour palettes and details in each of Kors designs. I like from Kors 's sweater and jacket, hand printed dresses to his embellished midi skirt with statement accessories. Everything was perfect. Fashionista, it is a must to add Kors SS'15 in wardrobe for this season. 

Proenza Schouler's designers presented their SS'15 Collection are more tailored and sporty. The duo designers giving an evolution against what they normally do.  There are few pieces that catch my attention; a pinch of exotic python leather, laser cut sweater with long fringes, knitted polos and dresses, leather jackets and pants, crochet skirts, fringed dresses and tailored suits. Not forget their amazing shoulder bags and leather fringed peep toes pumps. Love it! Everything well-balanced and positive. A brand that everyone should consider to add into your wardrobe this spring.


11th of September was the closing day for New York Fashion Week on Day 8. Honestly, It was a tough and hectic 1 week fully packed. I've to jiggle around to check what's latest on the runway and concentrate my office work. I feel grateful that live stream and helped by my blogger friends makes my work much easier. Yes, I'd feel exhausted but worth it. I'll not nag on something that I really passion in. I really hope one day I'll in the same circle with Bryan Boy and Chiara. Yes, Fashion as My Passion.

I started my day with J.Mendel. This season, J.Mendel designer do a collaboration with artist Enoc Perez.

I feel amazed with J.Mendel's collection.


Continue with one of my favorite brand, Calvin Klein Collection. CK and Costa synonym with minimalist designs. Costa presented his SS'15 designs are more practical and comfortable to his loyal customers and fans. Costa focused on A-Line silhouette and metallic liquid colour. Love CK's sleeveless tunics, flare dresses and dresses belted under the bust line. CK definitely embrace modest yet stylish. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, right?
I ended my fashion week with true essence of NYC; Marc Jacobs. I'm big fan of Marc Jacobs from his diamond days with Louis Vuitton until today. It is one of my biggest dream to attend MJ's Fashion Show. I always love MJ's artwork because he's unique and its not easy to predict what he will present every season. For this season, MJ presented his SS'15 collection military inspired with oversized silhouette and models pure clean no makeup. The collection paraded by models in matching wig around a pink house. I like MJ's croc skin hobo and messenger bag, quirky belted trench dresses, comfy zipper sweater jacket, pocket trousers with tube top and tailored military uniforms. The whole collection were bold, chic and unique.

This season, Angela Missoni presents her SS'15 collection little bit different from she normally do. There shades of grey for the presentation opening and  I like it! Love in each of Missoni's designs from jumpsuit, easy going dresses until their tops. The prints and colours really bring out Latin feel. Shades of grey, yellowish lemon and a pinch of midnight blue until passion red makes Missoni SS'15 looks very interesting. Ohh Missoni! I love your unique clutches and footwear design.

RED VALENTINO
 
 
I'm very impressed with Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli's Red Valentino SS'15 collection. Maria and Pierpaolo present their collection more quirky and girly. From voluminous stripes coat, anchor stamp, lovely summer dress in pure white, sheer stripes dress to Valentino's beautiful tops jackets and shorts. It holds many stories in one collection for a Red Valentino lady. I love the whole collection especially their cool see through bag. It will be a hot item for this season.
 
HALSTON HERITAGE

 
Halston Heritage; I'm glad that Halston have a place in Kuala Lumpur this year. Yes, I always adore 70's style and Halston know the best. 70's vibes and bold accessories always looks chic. For this season you can see a lot of halter dresses, maxi jumpsuit and trousers, bold shape suits and asymmetry cuts. It was a well balanced collection. Based what I observe you can style it easy lady to glamour goddess. You can see tie dye technique and heavenly pleats in the collection. Halston SS'15 simply flawless and MUST HAVE in your wardrobe.
 
ZAC ZAC POSEN

 
The famous young couturier present his SS'15 collection under his low-priced line, ZAC Zac Posen. I was thrilled after I saw a snip preview via his Instagram. Based what I observe after the presentation photos released. I feel confident that Zac low-priced line will grow fast in the future. I love what Zac present and I'm sure that his fans will proudly donning it everywhere throughout the season. Zac famous with classic and grand designs; did brought something different for this line. Bringing street style to another level under Zac talent will be fantastic. Zac's SS'15 collection were amazing. Simple yet wearable. The silhouettes were amazing. I love Zac's dynamic dresses and skirts, chic tops and high waist pants. His beautiful bag collection and flowy dresses with a splash of vibrant colours really catch my attention; It was very tempting.
