Moschino x My Little Pony Capsule Collection

Part of the S/S 2018 collection and available to shop straight after last week’s runway show, Jeremy Scott just brought My Little Pony to the Moschino catwalk. The brand’s creative director, who never strays far from popular culture when it comes to inspiration, has described himself as a full-blown Brony – for those who are a little unsure, it means an unexpected fan of My Little Pony. 

So cute: My Little Pony Lunchbox printed leather shoulder bag


iconMade in collaboration with the cult ’80s equestrian series, these pieces are part now of the see-now-buy-now capsule collection. For me an absolute must –  so reminiscent of my childhood dreams…

My favorite piece of the capsule collection: My Little Pony intarsia wool sweater

Donatella’s Tribute to Gianni

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the brutal murder of Gianni Versace in broad daylight in Miami Beach. I will never forget this moment when I saw the news on TV. I was studying fashion design and was at home working on one of my first assignments. At this time, Versace was big. We all dreamt of butterfly prints, safety pins, tight dresses and many more…

Gorgeous as her mother in the nineties… Kaia Gerber, daughter of Cindy Crawford, on the Versace S/S 2018 catwalk.

This week, Donatella Versace chose to stage her S/S 2018 show at Milan’s Triennale museum as a tribute to her late brother’s Gianni’s inspirations and creations. And so, for the first time since being the creative director of the company, she seeked inspiration directly from the house’s archives with all the key prints and pieces from the years 1991–95.

Versace in the ’90s

As I said those years marked the highlights of Gianni Versace’s designs. His most iconic collections included Vogue, Warhol, My Friend Elton, Icons, Baroque, Animalia, Native Americans, Tresor de la Mer, Metal Mesh, and Butterflies.

Beautiful finale of the S/S 2018 Versace: Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Helena Christensen posing in classic Versace chainmail dresses.

To celebrate «a genius . . . an icon . . . my brother» as Donatella said, the show fulminated in a finale that brought tears to my eyes. Gianni’s favorite models, Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Helena Christensen, appeared in golden gowns on stage, to the chorus of George Michael’s «Freedom! ’90.» Front row? Alessandro Michele, Anthony Vaccarello and Pierpaolo Piccioli applauded to Donatella’s tribute to the late master of fashion.

Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Christy Burlington lipsynching to George Michael’s «Freedom 90» for the finale of Gianni’s Versace’s F/W 1991 show. Back then fashion was truly fun!

The era of the top models: Gianni Versace surrounded by them in 1991.

A beautiful Versace ad campaign from the ’90s.

This moment reminded me why I chose many years ago the direction of fashion and how much the work of Gianni Versace in the ’90s had inspired me to do so.

Thank you, Donatella, for this little reminder, we all sometimes need in this busy life! And thank God that I have kept everything in my closet… time to dust the butterflies off…

LoL, Sandra

YSL Spring Look 2017 – The Street and I

ysl-spring-2017-the-streets-and-i-collectionysl_spring_look_2017ysl-spring-2017-makeup-streetart-collection

Having been a huge Saint Laurent fan over the past seasons, I was curious how Anthony Vaccarello’s debut at the French Maison would be. Obviously, it was ’80s glamour for the party girls. For the show, blazing against the night sky, was the famous YSL logo with a Y back at home that went missing under Hedi Slimane.

yslss2017S/S 2017 runway

ysl-logoThe logo is back…

Vaccarello even took the logo into the fabulous stiletto heels (love those). Cathy Horyn of NYMag made me laugh, she said that in this case YSL stands for Young Parisian Designer’s experiment.

ysl_heels_logoThe new must-have heels this S/S 2017 season.

You definitely cannot go wrong with the brand’s Spring 2017 makeup collection, so-called «The Street and I». A piece of YSL and definitely lighter on your wallet. As you might have already guessed from the mood photos, this collection is inspired by graffiti, music, Los Angeles, New York, London, Shanghai and Paris. The colors are vibrant, modern. If you are loving orange than you definitely can’t miss out on this collection. Take a closer look! It is in stores now.

Welcome to Now – #TommyNow

backgroundtommynow

WELCOME TO NOW
It’s a new era at Tommy Hilfiger.
We’re breaking the old-school rules of the runway and giving instant access to our Fall
2016 Hilfiger Collection and the new TOMMYXGIGI capsule. These are our greatest
hits, remixed and restyled for the digital age and shoppable the moment the lights go up.
We look to the classic codes of our 30-year arsenal––nautical, sport, rock-n-roll,
Americana––and give everything a modern day swagger. We’ve played with proportions
and fabrics, making signature details pop. It’s nautical meets street; inspired by Gigi
Hadid and designed to be worn as you like it.
This is the show I’ve always wanted to present. A true democratization of fashion, so
get on board––this is #TommyNow.Tommy Hilfiger

webinstance_hmu-01

Such as Tom Ford, who presented his first-ever in season fashion show for F/W 2016 this week in NYC, Tommy Hilfiger is living the «now» moment with #TOMMYNOW. As I told you earlier this week, «see now, buy now» is in full effect and digital becomes more important than ever.

webinstance_first-looks-01

And Hilfiger, the «American Dreamer», has set the bar high for any future fashion events with a set design that was truly outstanding including a 40-foot ferris wheel, a public carnival, food, games and of course his new muse Gigi Hadid that has launched her capsule collection with the brand simultaneously. Tommy Hilfiger’s runway shows had always been amazing but this one was absolutely special. The show was live-streamed and immediately shoppable on Tommy.com. In addition, all Tommy Hilfiger retailers and locations across the globe have now everything available for purchase.

Explore the collection that offers everything Tommy Hilfiger stands for, the famous «classic American cool» style and the amazing set design below.

Tom Ford Is All About See Now, Buy Now

tomford_fall2016_cover

New York Fashion Week has officially started with the presentations of the S/S 2017 shows but one man is swimming against the tide. It is no other than Tom Ford who has chosen to prioritize consumers with a “see now, buy now” format this season, meaning he sent his F/W 2016 collection down the runway that is now available online and in stores immediately – (you can shop it now at mytheresa.com and net-à-porter.comicon for example).

 “WE HAVE BEEN LIVING WITH A FASHION CALENDAR AND SYSTEM THAT IS FROM ANOTHER ERA. OUR CUSTOMERS TODAY WANT A COLLECTION THAT IS IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE. FASHION SHOWS AND THE TRADITIONAL FASHION CALENDAR, AS WE KNOW THEM, NO LONGER WORK IN THE WAY THAT THEY ONCE DID. WE SPEND AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY AND ENERGY TO STAGE AN EVENT THAT CREATES EXCITEMENT TOO FAR IN ADVANCE OF WHEN THE COLLECTION IS AVAILABLE TO THE CONSUMER. SHOWING THE COLLECTION AS IT ARRIVES IN STORES WILL REMEDY THIS, AND ALLOW THE EXCITEMENT THAT IS CREATED BY A SHOW OR EVENT TO DRIVE SALES AND SATISFY OUR CUSTOMERS’ INCREASING DESIRE TO HAVE THEIR CLOTHES AS THEY ARE READY TO WEAR THEM.” – Tom Ford

I find it a very interesting approach especially as I am coming from a print media background. It will be very tough for the magazines to work ahead of time. Digital will become even stronger than it already is which I truly enjoy. Below you can shop my four favorite looks from last night directly. Have fun!

And by the way Tom Ford is not the only one. A wave of designers showing in-season will follow in the days to come, Thakoon, Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry and others, among them.

To a new era in all ways…

LoL, Sandra
