Guy Laroche S/S 2013
Guy Laroche’s artistic director Marcel Marongiu sought the “total look” of the house as he debuted the S/S 2013 collection of wears for the lady who dresses to power: sly, sophisticated and sexy at once.  He achieved this by playing with color contrasting, exposing seams, and adding in a print here and there, making for […]

Dior S/S 2013
Raf Simons first RTW collection for Christian Dior is nothing short of impeccable. The opening looks were clearly references in respect to Mr. Dior. The A line silhouette, shown with scarfs nodding to the Dior chokers of the 50’s and his love for black, white and neutrals.  As the show progressed, Simons personality started to […]

Gucci S/S 2013
I have a long history with Gucci, my mother being one of the people involved in bringing the company to Los Angeles (with it’s first store on Rodeo Dr) in the 80’s.  We even had a special key that let certain people into a “secret vault” filled with goodies that my brother and I fought […]

Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2013
Reviewing a Dolce and Gabbana collection is probably one of the hardest task an appraiser might get given. Not because of the impressive number of looks (Almost 85 in this collection), but mainly because of the sheer talent of their creator, whom give the world garments of exquisite quality, filled with details, symbolisms and references. […]

Jil Sander S/S 2013
After Raf Simons’ February departure from storied German brand Jil Sander, who better to take the reigns than Sander herself. For this S/S 2013 collection, a “Return to Zero”, she offered a simplistic, foundational uniform for her vision of tomorrow. In a palette of midnight blue, oxblood, white, cream and rust, it was smart and […]

Gianfranco Ferré S/S 2013
It is a known fact that the brand Gianfranco Ferré has been bankrupt for the past two years, but we never thought this would influence the fashion house to the point of being observable on the catwalk. Designers Stefano Citron and Federico Piaggi saw Spring and Summer 2013 with a minimalist eye, in black and white. Pure. Mixing […]

Francesco Scognamiglio S/S 2013
The woman of Francesco Scognamiglio for Spring 2013 will be ethereal and chic, moving her presence fully covered -or not- in white, black and shimmering transparencies. She wears golden pigeons on her and her figure is framed by iridescent ruffles. It’s the neo-romantism. Its soft side and its hard side. The daywear, where all is […]

Emporio Armani S/S 2013
Italian elegance is the phrase that comes to mind whenever looking at Giorgio Armani’s creations at Emporio and Spring/Summer ’13 was no exception. Mr. Armani continues foxy styled series in the lightest of pastels and the lightest of fabrics effortlessly placed  and wrapped around the feminine silhouette. The collection had it all: blazers, textured vermudas, […]

Prada S/S 2013
There was almost a lyrical feeling in the taste left behind the Prada models’ strut. The ever-experimenting Miuccia, surprised once again with the trick she held under her sleeve, especially for her S/S 2013 presentation. But it was hardly spring in her world. Yes, during this Spring’s fashion weeks, we saw all kinds of contradictions, […]

Emilio Pucci S/S 2013
While people were looking to Pucci for its dose of trademark prints, designer Peter Dundas was looking to the Far East for the collection’s inspiration. The result? A softer side of the usually punchy label. Images of dragons, tigers, snakes, and flowers were displayed in subtle embroidery, and fabric choices veered more towards the languid […]
