Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Runway *Looks* to fall in love!

Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection was shown in Milan Fashion Week,  on February 27, 2015.
A few words about collection:
Emporio Armani is classic Italian fashion in its purest form and this season was as smart, timeless and deadly serious as you’d expect. Overwhelmingly made up of office-appropriate separates, Armani played with subtle changes in silhouette as wide black leather frills wrapped around waists and over shoulders. Those same unfussy frills appeared at the end of sleeves, over hips and on the pockets of a fabulous two-tone fur coat.
Fur was used innovatively  on a skirt and jacket as a trim on what looked like purple silk petals, while shapes largely remained conservative. At the same time, there was a folkloric tinge to the floral appliqués on gray wool skirts, or a long quilted red coat, or a puff-sleeved dress that felt like a little girl’s look writ adult. The low-slung, wide-cut trousers had a Petrouchka feel. An artisanal knit subtext peaked with a couple of jumbo mohair sweaterdresses
That’s not to say this collection had no bite, details in red ran through the otherwise dark and muted palette lifting it into something a little more dangerous. . Shoes were secured at the ankle with thin straps or bound on with what looked like thick black ribbon and were wicked in the best possible way.


Daphne Groeneveld starring in Vogue Russia, August 2015 issue – *I am a Superstar* editorial

*I am a Superstar* Editorial with Top-Model Daphne Groeneveld lensed by Jason Kibbler for Vogue Russia, August 2015 issue.

 Daphne Groeneveld detours to the dark side in *I am a Superstar* Editorial lensed by Jason Kibbler for Vogue Russia , August 2015. Skin tight feels right as the penetrating power of purple takes over. Fueled with the fire of crystal decadence, tectonic flavors fill the page. Playing a rock-star with a twist, dutch model gives off a hypnotic haze artfully backed by a violet-vibe. Fashion editor Olga Dunina makes a perfect job letting the breeze of high fashion fly free. Leather and lace never looked so cool with sexy panels sewn into the sides. Daphne Groeneveld  wears *Looks* from the new collections of Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Altuzarra, Gucci, Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana ,Chanel and more selected by Fashion Editor.
Purple hues back the attack by amping things up with a smokey effect. Letting the mist of sensation fall over the face, Make-up Artist Francelle Daly invites vintage beauty to inspire. The shiny shades of Summer erupt with royal colors that light up the lids. Shadows speak with tints that extend out from the lashes and up to the brows. Giving us a nod to the 70’s, mascara embraces the eyes by defining the decade. From richly retro to aggressively avant-garde, orbs evoke both blue & green. The skin takes on a subtle pallor with frosted eyes and soft, peach lips. Hair stylist, Esther Langham makes the last touch of every perfect Look which we can see following this Editorial.

Ulyana Sergeenko Haute Couture A/W 2015-2016 – Glamour pure!

Ulyana Sergeenko Haute Couture A/W 2015-2016 Collection.
Communal Apartments in the USSR aren’t generally associated with glamour, yet the Kazakhstan-born designer presented her own dramatic, glitzy version of living conditions under Marxism-Leninism.
 There were long hems, lampshade volumes and soft fabrics like velvet and satin for the once grandes dames, ex-owners of the 10-room homes they now shared with peasants dressed in traditional motifs – one black-and-white dress with a lace panel representing a squirrel paired with a fur bonnet stood out .And the festive spirit was still there, explored through a series of naïf draped or plissé dresses covered in embroidered and printed confetti, and not-so innocent boudoir pieces in embroidered pale blue silk and peach crêpe. A bejewelled babydoll dress worn with a velvet-and-fur ice-cream cone bag had a whiff of Mikhail Bulgakov to it. Flower embroideries in a burgundy jacket-and-skirt ensemble turned the model into a poupée russe. But that’s where Sergeenko’s talent lies: in thoroughly exploring Russian imagery, and almost (if not quite) giving it a humorous Twist.
Top model Natalia Vodianova,one of the best friends of Ulyana said :
„It’s a brand that has an incredible potential. … I actually have a big passion for craftsmanship and I think that Ulyana is an incredible force behind Russian craftsmanship.
She’s gathering young and old women from all over Russia in her atelier in Moscow. She now has over 100 full-time people employed in embroidering, carving and doing beading and all kinds of work that goes into her collection.
Ulyana is the reason that all women in Moscow dress like princesses.“

Fendi Haute Couture A/W 2015-2016 Collection – Haute Fourrure Collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi,
As he celebrates 50 years at the Italian brand, Karl Lagerfeld will be in the spotlight througout this prestigious week, and specifically on July 8. Rather than an haute couture presentation, this will actually be a show of ‘haute fourrure,’ meaning fur, filled with creations that are sure to dazzle the crowds.
It was the first Fendi’s Haute Couture Show.
French film icon and ardent animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot has already registered her disapproval by writing a letter to Choupette Lagerfeld, the designer’s pampered feline companion.
