Collection Marchesa is on my Top 5 Most Awaited collections this season (and as always.) If you have seen their spring collection, you might be surprised of their “tone down” this season. They may have taken a break from using lots of chiffon, tulle, and laces and have decided to use more silk and other light fabrics I don’t know their name of. But even though their recent pieces are not as dramatic as their previous ones, they are still romantic and elegant. They are also more wearable and you may have lesser chance of taking faux pas. They’re all adorable but my most favorite is the long-sleeved, sequined silver open back. What’s yours?
Marc Jacobs brings us the Paris vibe again with their Resort 2012 collection. There were lots of frocks, big jewelries, sandals with bows, high waist trousers, and clochet hats. There were also pieces with the Eiffel Tower drawn in them. I thinks the looks were a mix of 20s to 60s Parisienne styles.
Tomas Maier’s selection for Bottega Veneta this season showcased pieces telling a story about an elegant escapist. He played with brown hues on the business attire-like coats, blazers, and skirts which came opened the show then shifted to vibrant hot pink and turquoise towards the middle until the final piece.
The minimalist designs were also complimented by elegant totes and purses.
Fashion high priest, Karl Lagerfeld, pioneered this years Resort 2012 fashion show with his new collection for Chanel last Monday night. The fashion show took place at the Hotel du Cap, in Antibes, France – which he booked out wholly last year for this year’s show. The hotel is said to be the most expensive one in the whole world, as Lagerfeld pointed it out. Well, the luxury doesn’t only end with the venue but also, he was able to cast in lots of top models and fill the front rows with the most glamorous fashion victims. And if you think that that is too much, here is more – he accessorized his pieces with real diamonds, pearls, and jewels! "Too much may not be enough," Lagerfeld said at the end of the show.
Chanel may have the most numerous looks in every fashion show. It’s not only a collection but it’s a collection of groups. Maybe the diamonds and gems may be the only cohesive unit that will make you call it a collection. There might seem to be a lack of focus but every piece was well made not to mention, elegant. The collection consists of everything from one piece bikinis to maxi dresses, plains to prints, black and white to colored, and everything and anything you might think they are. "I saw everything from a day at the beach to a wedding," actress Rachel Bilson mused.
When Lagerfeld was asked what or who inspired him to make this sundries, he said Rita Hayworth and Aly Khan, who frequented the Hotel du Cap in the past did it. So what look do you think stood-out the most in this “collection”?
