Dolce & Gabbana say so…

Dolce & Gabbana says:
The Classic White Shirt
Why we agree:  
Who knew this staple wardrobe item could look so good with embellished red hotpants? Granted, it isn’t an everyday look but I’m looking forward to taking the white shirt away from the office!
How to wear:
Okay, so we won’t all be wearing the white shirt in such an extravagant way, but how about taking a tip from Gucci ( sorry, not sorry about the constant Gucci name drop) and wearing this classic piece with an A-line leather mini? I’ve recently bought a burnt orange patent leather look skirt from Primark and I can’t wait to pair it with a crisp white shirt, black tights and over the knee boots or even simple black flats.

Dolce & Gabbana says:
Embellished Jeans
Why we agree:
Could this look a little garish to the untrained eye? Of course, but who really cares when you’ve got jewels all over your jeans? Plus, I love that you could actually make this even more unique with a little DIY, I like this video for inspiration.
How to wear:
Once embellished your jeans can take you from day to night! Keep the rest of the pieces simple though, not everything will work with such a bold pair of jeans!

Dolce & Gabbana says:
Red Roses everywhere
Why we agree:
I’m not sure why you wouldn’t want to wear fresh roses in you hair everyday, but these lovely floral decorations (in hair, on shoes and embroidered onto dresses) add a bold dimension to a pretty, feminine look. Did I mention it reminds me of the Mediterranean sun?
How to wear:
Firstly, put them in your hair! Secondly, embrace the oversized rose print and then if you’re feeling really brave, use them to embellish your accessories.. but not  all together though, I think that might be a little too much…

Dolce & Gabbana Says:
[Almost] Flat Shoes
Why we agree:
Heels always look really glamorous, but let’s face it we all love a good flat shoe because they’re pretty and nearly always comfortable. And look! The D&G versions are still glamorous with all the embellishments and the cute Mary Jane style strap! Now I just need to find a more affordable dupe..
How to wear:
The show was for SS15, but I think they’re a great substitute over the AW period for when it is a little too warm to wear boots. Do as D&G have and wear with loose fit jeans and mini dresses (add tights for the cooler weather

Moschino at MFW

Heavily influenced by McDonalds, Spongebob Squarepants, crisps and chocolate wrappers, it is safe to say that Moschino definitely put themselves back on the fashion map yesterday after Jeremy Scott debuted his first collection for the brand. I have never been so split over how I feel about a collection before, but what I do know is that I’m excited to see what Jeremy Scott will bring us next, surely it can only get more eccentric?

Whether you love or hate this collection, there is no question that it brings quirkiness from Moschino at it’s best; fun, vibrant and unexpected!

Alberta Ferretti at MFW

We have seen many designers over fashion week change the direction of their brand’s usual aesthetic, but Ferretti has done this the best so far. The usual Ferretti collection would be romantic, light and airy, but at MFW yesterday the collection took a darker turn that led to a luxurious, almost couture, runway show. Inspired by an ‘animated forest’ the collection was full of rich textures, prints and colours to give an enchanting, ethereal feel. With simple and natural silhouettes, the collection’s many textures spoke volumes- we saw feather lined hems, fur lined collars and bark like textures that were created through the layering of felt, silk and chiffon across the whole collection, where even sandals were adorned with soft feathers. This, mixed with the luxurious hand painted prints, intricate embroidery, mossy green shades and dark metallic hues, gave us an inspirational collection that reaches to a wide audience. From fluffy green jumpers, gorgeous ethereal gowns and the clever vine like sandal straps that twisted around the ankles of models, Ferretti managed to outdo herself with this collection, thinking outside the box to create a wearable, but couture inspired, collection.

                        

Gucci at MFW

Frida Giannini, Creative Director of Gucci, has indicated a move away from the brand’s traditional black attire in their newest collection, saying that she wanted  ‘a new palette and clean lines’ from their most recent AW14 collection.With a more optimistic, youthful edge, we can clearly see that this has been achieved in the sugary sweet pastel shades and shorter A-Line skirts and dresses that was showcased earlier on today in Milan. With soft pastel hues we saw fluffy shearling coats, double breasted trench coats and adorable, high-waisted A-line skirts in an array of metallic and matte pastel shades.  Contrasted against this were darker, more autumnal, shades of olive green and deep red, as well as the obvious appearance of snakeskin, in youthful shades of yellow and blue, printed on both silk blouses as well as knee high, patent leather boots. Despite feminine colours, youthful prints and soft, luxurious textures, this collection aims to represent the modern Gucci woman, albeit with a 60’s edge.
