Fashion month is almost coming to an end. My darlings summed up for you below, get inspired.
Princess Diana “the people’s princess” was a huge inspiration for this Off-White collection. Which means that we’re still processing her impact on the royal family and beyond. This year marks already the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death, a good reason to duck into the archives and take her fashion to create something new. The translation Off-White makes I found very convincing. Big shoulders, slick suits, draped dresses and all this in a strong color palette.
Lucie and Luke Meier made their Jil Sander runway debut outdoors during sunset at a soon-to-open mall at the foot of Milan’s new Zaha Hadid–designed tower. Floor-sweeping shirt dresses, clean cut and sober silhouttes but esspecially elegant looks. Strong suit shapes, boxy jackets and carrot-shaped trousers cropped above the ankle for him and her. Staying true to the brands signiture shirt designs, I love it.
South of France summer vibes, French Island girls—they could be in Corsica, or Martinique in the Caribbean, too.
"Jacquemus is my mother’s name, she was shy, and she was sexy. It will always be about her". The designer of this beautiful brand stated.
Satin sexy, shine, color, workwear. Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran took workwear as inspiration and transformed it into beautiful suits.
Glenn Martens, Belgium genius is referring to the 90s cardigan wearing pearl necklace girl, also the nineties preppy kid and the fleece cardigan wearing dad. He took these uniforms and reinvented them completely. Taking something familiar and transforming it, like Demna is doing for Vetements. Pulling down hem lines, adjusting pants, combining nineties street, couture and tailoring all together and it works briliantly.
