Paris Airport to showcase their travelling fashionistas at photography exhibition

Fashion

Paris Airport photography exhibition


The exhibition will features pictures by photographer Jonathan Paciullo, who over the last three months have been snapping at the thousands of passengers at the airport every day. Paciullo, is known for his street fashion image bank, called ‘www.FrenchyStyle.com’, has extensive experience covering some of the biggest Fashion Weeks, including those in New York, London, Milan, and Paris.

His pictures here will include hipsters, serious fashionistas, people from around the world in their traditional outfits and your regular Joe in his everyday jeans. Pictures include large-scale photographs of 27 subjects and can be viewed at Charles de Gaulle Airport’s nine terminals until March 19. The exhibition is also up for viewing at the Paris City Hall, since March 1, 2016. The airport will also screen the film “Fashion Loves Paris”, that showcases Paris’ expertise in fashion and handicrafts, on screens at the baggage reclaim area. The airport wants to immerse everyone who passes through their doors, what fashion means to the city, especially during Fashion Week.

For someone who loves the elegance that came with travelling back in the day, we love travelers who take their #airportstyle seriously. If this exhibition will encourage passengers to leave their sweats at home, we say keep the exhibition on all-year-round. Tell us your airport style!

Dior Heads To Blenheim Palace To Stage Cruise 2017 Show

Fashion

Raf Simons had a lot to offer Dior. As creative director, he gave a new purpose to the brand’s standardly pretty clothes, and brought about a modern edge that had been lacking, which inevitably brought about an increase in revenue. When he announced he was leaving last year, much to the disappointment of many involved, we were left waiting in anticipation to see who would be the next person tossed into the position. Unfortunately, that has not yet been released. But until that is well and decided, the location for the next cruise show, which will be designed by whoever is next appointed to Simons’ now-open seat, is a tidbit of information that has us waiting eagerly.

Dior Heads To Blenheim Palace To Stage Cruise 2017 Show

So Dior decided it will be heading back to the Blenheim Palace, located in Oxfordshire, England to stage its Cruise 2017 show. This location is made notable by being Winston Churchill’s place of birth, and its status as the primary place of residence for the Duke of Marlborough. This will be the third time Dior presents a show in the palace. The two previous times were in 1954 and 1958, so this revisitation is long overdue. Both times saw Princess Margaret in attendance, making the event much more prestigious.

But a substantial amount has changed for the brand. Just last season, for instance, Dior could be found at the French Riviera under Simons. The clothes presented had the upbeat Simons flair, while still being both progressive and true to Dior’s signature aesthetic. It showed just how much the designers had sunken into his role in the brand. Everything shown was fun and playful, and now with the new location that is expected to switch gears drastically for this new season. And of course, that’s not to say a runway show hosted at the Blenheim palace needs to be a somber affair. There is a certain level of sophistication, however, that will come from a chic eye from whoever designs the line.

This was likely a wise choice for the brand, in terms of sales. The Dior haute couture collection for spring 2016 was designed by Serge Ruffieux and Lucie Meier, the brand’s standard in-house designers, and the response wasn’t too positive. So whoever is uncovered as the next creative director will have to hit the floor running and create a stunning and appropriate collection to present for the brand’s annual cruise line. Here’s to just sitting back and waiting in anticipation as we wait for the unveiling!

Stradivarius Spring/Summer 2016 Campaign

Fashion

The official website of Stradivarius has been updated with the brand new spring/summer 2016 campaign that is a little more than feminine and just screams for a vacation you should have in the upcoming months. Spring is feminine mood… Spring is time to fall in love… Spring is a state of mind. This is what the postcards on the website tell us, and we absolutely agree. Spring is also the time for ruffles and pineapples. Even if they are never connected to each other, Stradivarius found a way to tie them up!

Stradivarius Spring/ Summer 2016 Campaign

Denim has been an on-and-off trend, making some of the most popular collections but not standing up firm for its position on the top fashion trend list for 2016. Despite that, there is a lot of denim in the spring 2016 collection by Stradivarius. It includes not only a full denim outfit but also something we haven’t seen in awhile, denim ruffles! We knew ruffles were in trend this year, but adding denim to it makes it so much special.

Although we mentioned ruffles, we see a very limited use of them. There are no playful dresses or even tops. Some of the best pieces we are looking forward to are the leather sleeveless vest worn over a short dress, ruffled over-the-shoulder top, wide legged red capris, high-waisted denim capris with a cream top featuring a flirtatious knot in the front, and more.

One of the pieces we absolutely loved is the letter bomber jacket, “Kissing Point” written on the back. This is the perfect message for a collection that breathes friendship and love. Only make sure to turn around in time, your true love may be approaching from the back!

The theme is contagious! We’re in love with this spring inspiration, but the color palette is not flowery and sunny at all. It contains the color of the year, red, as well as a lot of black, creamy colors and blue for the denim.

The Stradivarius spring/summer 2016 campaign was shot in a retro apartment, which probably used to be inhabited by a biologist, considering the number of plants you see all around the place. So, an interesting mix of indoors and outdoors, surrounded by torn furniture that would definitely celebrate its 50th birthday, if it could. Nonetheless, nothing throws shade over the collection, a trendy youthful vibe that the average Stradivarius customer will surely respond to.

It’s about comfort and practicality; you don’t need the glamorous halls of New York or the luxurious palaces of Paris. Feel luxurious within and let it shine through you, turning any surrounding into a playground for your spring attitude. What will you say, Stradivarius? Are we on point with this?

Overall, the collection is injected with careless positivity. Relaxed looks spiced up with tiny details of flirt and girliness; that’s Stradivarius this spring!

Prada Fall 2016 RTW Brings Back The Warm Tights Trend

Fashion

Does the devil really wear Prada? It would be pretty cool if it did! Miuccia Prada would certainly find it one hell of an amusing anecdote to tell, if we were to guess her reaction to the momentary lapse in logic from a controversial little evil thing. The second day of the Milan Fashion Week is highlighted by the likes of Prada, Fendi and many more, creating a rather interesting day for the fashion lovers in town. There are a few things that immediately capture your attention when you are looking at the latest Prada fall/winter 2016-2017 collection. Featuring a soundtrack of mostly female artists, the models took to the stage in some rather intriguing looks, with us immediately zeroing in on the checked knit tights.

Prada Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Milan Fashion Week

Prada is known for throwing in something dorky as well, so the Hawaiian shirts were certainly a nice throwback, with the argyle stockings paired with shiny peep-toe heels or laced up wedges that give the girls a very sexy aura, sometimes even appearing as gloves. There were even some sailor hats brought in from the men’s collection as well, serving to prove the importance of equality.

Miuccia Prada really knows how to redesign femininity and we are happy to see that even among the models there was more of an equality between the size 0 and size 4. Known for creating ubiquitous trends, including the colored suits with cropped trousers, the geisha dresses and banana prints, along with the fired up stilettos, we now get to witness the birth of the Burlington tights trend, as well as the inclusion of sexy lace-up boots for the coming year, while dreaming you had them 2 months back.

Accessories seen throughout the Prada fall 2016 fashion show included some rather lovely key necklaces strung along or added to the belts, with some lovely hats and intriguing corsets worn over the clothing itself. Diary style necklaces also appear all around, with images of moons and shooting stars. Add a bag around your neck and you are set to go. While we’re at it, to mention some of the beauty looks, it is important to keep things simple, sporting a sumptuous red lip and leaving your hair half down and half up in a mussed up style.

Perhaps the best part of the show was the fact that two of the bags shown off became available right after the last model strutted off the stage, even if the rest of the collection we will have to wait some time for. It certainly didn’t take the Burberry route, whether in style featuring the Americana theme or in time period of availability.

Rita Ora x Adidas Originals Spring 2016 Brings Oriental Vibes

Fashion

Eastern-inspired fashion along with its charming oriental vibes is slowly speaking up for itself in the fashion industry, becoming one of the main and most revisited sources of inspiration of the past decade. Rita Ora is just another artist, who chose to celebrate the Eastern culture through a fashion collection with Adidas, namely the Rita Ora x Adidas Originals spring 2016 line-up. It is not the first time Rita Ora and Adidas Originals get together to create a girl-power kind of collection, and Rita Ora seems to particularly enjoy exploring her creativity through this form of art.

Rita Ora x Adidas Originals Spring 2016 Collection

Entitled ‘Asian Arena’, the Rita Ora x Adidas Original spring 2016 collection features both exaggerated kimono sleeves and Asian street-style-inspired items, which will make anyone living in the Western world feel closer both to the congested streets of Seoul, Shanghai or Hong Kong, and the peaceful hills of Japan or even the Trường Sơn Mountains in Vietnam.

The capsule collection’s lookbook features the British singer wearing and showing off the proposals, which include minimalistic sneakers and athleisure-inspired pieces of clothing too. As those who usually follow Adidas proposals know, the label is particularly fond of all that is athleisure-related, and often makes sure its lineups have at least one or two items linked to the comfiest and fancier trend of all time. The ‘Asian Arena’ manages not only to create a more sportive point of view on the athleisure trend, but also to combine elements that are more characteristic of haute couture with those of the so-called ‘low fashion’.

At first glance the ‘Asian Arena’ might seem less wearable than the average Adidas Originals proposals, but one just needs a few seconds to fall in love with most of its items. Aside from the kimono t-shirts, maxi cardigans and pants, the collection features interesting camouflage leggings and classics, like the three-striped hoodies and simple t-shirts. As for the main colors used, Rita Ora tried to keep on with revisiting the label’s recent passion for camouflage, letting the motif get almost watercolored rather than purely military-inspired.

The evergreen Adidas Stan Smith sneakers got revisited and updated too thanks to an elegant suede burgundy material, which makes them even more delicate (and will be just perfect for pairing with basically anything, from boho-chic dresses to casual outfits). Burgundy is a key element within the collection, as it functions as the sole contrasting motif among the earthy-toned camouflage items. If you are looking for a pure athleisure-inspired pair of shoes, we recommend the Zx Flux sneakers, which might be less delicate in lines but definitely destined to become a must-have especially among those who deeply love the Japanese culture.

With prices that range from $15 to circa $100, the ‘Asian Arena’ line-up is quite affordable too, meaning that at least taking a look at its proposals is always a good idea.
