    Fashion Style Tip: Dolce & Gabanna Caftan

    Juni 25th, 2015

    Dolce & Gabbana’s lightweight cotton-voile kaftan is boldly printed with an Italian Maiolica tile motif – a key print from the label this season. This floor-grazing style has side slits for easy movement and gathered cuffs for definition. Leather tasseled ties nod to spring’s ’70s mood.

    Streetstyle Berlin: Dress of the week #56 – Tobi Olayinka

    März 12th, 2013

    Tobi’s hairstyle was just amazing. It reminded me a bit of Margre Simpson only more fashionable! He was wearing a baggy 3/4 pants made by himself and a long military-style double breasted coat along with Marton boots. I really liked his outfit – it was definitely something you wouldn’t see so often.

    Luca’s vintage outfit immediately grabbed my attention. At Berlin Fashion Week he looked amazing in his Burberry hat and glasses by Tom Ford. His “Happy Socks” were absolutely stunning!

    Streetstyle Berlin: Dress of the week #50 – Justus Toussis

    Februar 12th, 2013

    I met Justus at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. The 19 year old looked amazing in his outfit: a leather jacket and pants combined with a beautiful fur vest and black boots by Burberry. But Justus rocked it all with his bow tie, a Vintage hat from London and a matching Louis Vuitton bag. I’d say two thumbs up for Mr. Toussis!

    New York Fashion Week: Zang Toi Spring 2013 Runway Show

    September 12th, 2012

    French romance was in the air last Sunday night at Zang Toi’s Spring 2013 show in New York. Inspired by the romantic French Riviera, Zang Toi amazingly chose soft colors for his collection which nevertheless made stunning and bold statements. The French classical music setting underlined the mood of being in the Cote D’Azur in South of France just perfect.

    The designer opened his show with boudoir looks — a gorgeous ivory floor-length silk morning gown with pleaded ruffled borders and a beaded ivory mini-robe. Softly structured tweedy looks were followed after sexy secretaries in suit-costumes with pinstripes were walking down the runway. Toi closed the show with beautiful, long soirée gowns — a giant tulle bubblegum Cinderella ballgown followed by a parade of “Disney dresses” in silk gazar.

    All gowns were embellished with beautiful crystals on the shoulders, neck and hem line. Big delicate bows and puffed sleeves added a touch of sophistication. Soft colored flowers that looked like bouquets were precisely placed at the back of low cut dresses giving each look a very unique appearance.

    Zang Toi’s Spring 2013 Collection is magnifique

    A few menswear looks were also shown with the same dress code: handsome in black silk tailcoat with attached sculpted collar, ivory silk dupioni tuxedo shirt and top hats.

    All in all, Zang Toi fantastically showed nearly every facade of today’s women style: the business woman, the sexy and independent gal and last but not least the princess we all dream to be at some point in time. From the beginning to the end, the collection and music was marvelous. As Zang Toi walked the runway with muse Julie Macklowe, the audience rose to their feet and gave him a well deserved standing ovation for his elegant display that successfully captured the enchantment of the French Riviera. Chapeau Mr. Toi.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #34 – Glamo

    März 28th, 2012

    We just loved Glamo’s vintage outfit when we met him at Lincoln Center in New York City. The TV & fashion personality who could be catched at GDC, The Glamore Deluxe Company, showcased his vintage fur piece from the Garment District with these awesome red shoes and skinny blue jeans. We have to admit we liked his H&M handbag a lot too – it was a nice accessory to his streetstyle.

    New York Fashion Week: J. Crew Fall 2012 Presentation

    Februar 23rd, 2012

    Our belated Valentine’s gift: the J. Crew Fall 2012 Presenation can be seen now. Jenna Lyons, J. Crew’s creative director has become a streetstyle star. Her Fall 2012 Presenation on Valentine’s day in New York was very interesting: loads of colors, loads of prints, loads of textures.

    Tom Mora, the new head women’s designer, said the focus was on head-to-toe dressing. The snake-print top paired with the snake-print long skirt was one of the presentation’s most directional looks, along with a pink schoolboy blazer worn as a suit with matching pants. But offbeat, mix-and-match layering still rules here.

    Now dive into the new Fall 2012 color & prints world of J. Crew.
