It’s a winter time and i’m choosing to focus on the fall-winter collections and make a kind of fashion flashback. The first collection to re-see is a Gucci Fall/Winter 2015-2016. I choosed Gucci because i like what Alessandro Michele did and does for Gucci, with fall/winter 2015-2016 Alessandro Michele made his womenswear debut for Gucci.The speed and scale of Gucci’s resurrection is astonishing. Michele was appointed creative director just ten months ago and had only a few weeks to design his first men and women’s catwalk shows. And the most important News to tell – Alessandro Michele becomes next International Designerof the Year!
The British Fashion Awards plans to honor Alessandro Michele with the International Designer of the Year distinction for the work he has done as Gucci’s latest creative director. In a short time frame, he essentially turned the fashion house around.Michele will receive his award on Nov. 23. “I’m honored and still a little incredulous,” told the designer, regarding his win.
The British Fashion Awards is the biggest night in the British fashion calendar. It honours the UK’s brightest fashion and design talents – from established to emerging designers, to models and image makers.The most anticipated awards of the night are Womenswear Designer of the Year , the British Style Award (which goes to the nation’s most stylish celeb, voted for by the public) and Model of the Year.
Michele made the unexpected step up from accessories designer to creative director at Gucci in January 2015,replacing Frida Giannini who had been at the head of the firm for eight years. Michele’s experience with accessories led the fashion press to believe Gucci owners Kering fancied selling more handbags. However, it has been Michele’s vintage-inspired ruffled dresses, floral blouses and A-line skirts that have impressed critics and customers alike with a flurry of high-street imitators already tapping into the designer’s standout aesthetic.
Male models on the women’s catwalk, a debut menswear collection designed in the five days after his appointment and a significant departure from Giannini’s glamour and hard edges have all caught the eye at Gucci, with Michele clearly the man with the Midas touch.
Back to collections for fall&winter seasons. Paris Fashion Week, March 10 ,2015.
Valentino Fall/Winter 2015-2016 pret-a-porter collection designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli.
A lot of us will remember this Show about Derek Zoolander and Hansel, aka Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson,the both came at the tail end of the Valentino Show ,do you remember it?
Chiuri and Piccioli go to their Italian origins for inspiration. For Fall they looked at Emilie Flöge and Celia Birtwell, two women who were both artists and muses (Flöge to Gustav Klimt, and Birtwell to her husband, the designer Ossie Clark, as well as the painter David Hockney). The new perspective energized them. Flöge, who was a couturier in her own right and rejected her era’s de rigueur corsets, gave the designers the collection’s gentle A-line silhouettes and the gold leaf effects on fox-fur coats, as well as lit-from-within quilted velvet coats. Birtwell, who is still alive and kicking and collaborated with Chiuri and Piccioli on their Pre-Fall collection, supplied the dragon motif that decorated a black trapeze dress.
But there was much more at play here, from the casual new vibes of oversize fisherman knit sweaters worn with A-line midi skirts to the sensual efficiency of silk crepe dresses, tie-neck blouse and wide-leg culottes, or an away-from-the-body black dress paneled in tonal strips of leather, as they are at their lovely eveningwear. Inevitably, though, it’s the gowns that get the attention.
(Actually, uploading the photos , i find a few outfits which i like too much! I must find out how to update or re-build my online Magazine , i wrote about it yet. The collections and Editorials will be the featuring Content but i want also one place for me, for my advices ect.)
The bohemian trend continues to take over for the fall&winter 2015-2016 seasons. We can see very „Bohemian“ collections and a lotof Editorials where the models styles „bohemian“ . The following Editorial catch me, i like the way it was shot.

Back to Paris Fashion Week and to collections for fall & winter 2015-2016 seasons.
Chloé Fall/Winter 2015-2016 pret-a-porter collection designed by Stevie Nicks was shown on March,8, 2015 in PFW.
I can only repeat what the collegues wrote yet : “ This is Chloe’s season. The obsession with the seventies; floor length coats, preferably with some shearling on the side, boho dresses with tall boots and peasant blouses“ .
D’accord! The collection is very 70ies. But same time the „Cloé woman“ lives today and she is chic and sophisticated, with individual character and complete confidence. She makes (or made yet?) carieer because if you want to wear Chloé you must have: first of all very good taste, second one -money because all this chic and sophisticate pieces are not cheap at all ( but! the taste you can’t buy! Or you have it or you don’t ) . Anyway, i think it’s better to have 10 outfits from luxus brands, of course factual collections that 50 different pieces „no Name“, it’s my own opinion, about all pro-and contra and why i think in this way i’ll tell you one day in posting dedicated only for this arguments. ( nothing against „no-name“! )
Back to collection, nice, wearble, very 70 ies but in this season it’s IN, and don’t forget, it’s not a vintage, it maybe in vintage style but it’s for woman which lives today, which wants to look chic in fall&winter 2015-2016!
Stella McCartney was shown her Fall/Winter 2015-2016 ready-to-wear collection in Paris Fashion Week, on March 9,2015. In this collection the daily Life is matching with the commands of Fashion! Th the opposite sides as celebration of freedom and exploring of classic are working in Stella’s collection perfect! ( but it was wrote yet, and not only here 🙂 )
It is very stylish collection, the full collection is a „masculine-meets-feminine“ .The corsets builts into tailoring , the classic tailored trouser suits with a particular touch of elegance are looking very feminine, there are dresses dressed down with ribbed polo necks beneath and there are the super luxe knitted sweaters, with „off“-the-shoulders. And the overcoats are „Fur-free“. It comes not very ofen in fall/winter 2015-2016 r-t-w collections which we re-„saw“ yet and which we will re-see in next winter monthes. ( Have i told you yet that i would like to write more about some outfits , for example which i like, to write about details ect.? )
Eveningwear becomes graphic and returns to black and white. Most of evening Outfits are also with „off“ the shoulder , pearl necklaces and ear jewellery makes the runway looks perfect. I think that a lot of woman will wear Stella McCartney in this season,.The silhouettes are easy to wear, the colours can seems for somebody a Little bit boring but for daily life ,for office and also for evening – The Daily Life is matching with the Commands of Fashion!
