Between the Spring ’15 runways in September and what we’re seeing so far for Fall 2015, it’s safe to say that one of fashion’s favorite words — BOHO — is making its way back into our lives. I hope you like flares and fringe, because over the next few seasons, they will be thrown in your face.
To quote the famous Heidi Klum, “as you know in fashion one day you’re in, and the next day you’re out.” This is very true BUT sometimes an exception comes around and you find certain styles and designers that stick around for a while. Now, what makes that happen? Well, that’s the topic of today’s discussion, folks (amongst other things of course…)
Ever see a collection and wonder where it all began? The inspiration? The sketches? If not, it is something to think about. It’s funny when you actually get to hear or see some of the inspiration, you would have never guessed it had anything to do with the collection. Other times, it makes perfect sense. So today, with it being day one of NYFW, we’re going to look at some designers and what inspired their Fall 2015 collections you’ll be seeing this fashion month.
When it comes to jewelry, do you go for costume or fine? Or perhaps mix it up? I’d say a majority like to keep it mixed, which is exactly why designers are starting to dabble in both categories. So now if you want a $150 bracelet or a $1,500 bracelet…you can get it from the same designer! HALLELUJAH!
Balenciaga City. Givenchy Nightingale. Proenza Schouler PS1. Chanel 2.55. What do these all have in common? They’re classic handbags, signature to their designer. But fashion seems to be moving in this direction where we don’t necessarily need a big designer name attached to our bag to make the investment. The perfect example of this is what I like to call the new classic — M2MALLETIER.
