Elsa Hosk Fronts Reformation’s Fall 2016 Bridal Collection Lookbook

Fashion

It has been quite a busy year for Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk, who has fronted many fashion campaigns so far, such as those of Victoria’s Secret Swimwear and Free People. Unstoppable indeed, the blonde beauty is now fronting Reformation’s fall 2016 bridal collection lookbook too, wearing eclectic and dreamy bridal dresses.

The Reformation fall 2016 bridal line-up could be regarded as the label’s largest bridal collection created so far, as it takes you from the aisle to the wedding reception and, if the party goes wild, to the dance floor as well. With more and more soon-to-be brides changing their wedding dress right after the ceremony, Reformation is translating this trend to an incredible amount of timeless staples that will at least persuade the bridesmaids (if not the brides) to agree with what to wear during the ceremony.

Aside from the white classics, the collection features a few solid-colored red and yellow pieces too, the modernity of which is however incomparable to that of the newest, iconic off-white two-piece staple. The overall collection’s attitude mixes Reformation’s signature boho-chic vibes with some of this year’s hottest bridal trends, such as cut-outs shaped on the shoulders and plunging slits either on the fronts or sides.

There’s even a Nineties-inspired mini slip-dress that flawlessly subverts all the wedding traditions and already is an absolute must-have. The slip-dress, which comes in a longer version too, is made using safe dyes that are devoid of chemicals, meaning that neither those who worked on the dressed, nor the ones that will actually wear it are going to be exposed to toxic materials. Speaking of sustainable fashion!

Other proposals include bridesmaid dresses in off-the-shoulder, modern princess-like backless silhouettes with ruches embellishments and imposing goddess-like wrap-dresses that will make any wedding unforgettable for sure. As for the adornments, aside from the ruches and pleats, the collection uses some floral lace embroideries too, the ethereal results of which could be perfectly matched with the bridesmaid dresses decorated with pastel printed floral patterns.

Shot by photographer Olivia Malone, Elsa Hosk seems to perfectly embody the collection’s solemn and jocose spirit, blissfully sporting both the brides and bridesmaid proposals as if we were invited to her own wedding reception. She will likely help the more skeptic ones to ultimately go for a “second wedding dresses for post-nuptial partying” too, which is, surprisingly, extremely affordable too.

With dresses starting at $198 and reaching $588, this Reformation fall 2016 bridal collection not only will let those who have a budget of $500 breathe a sigh of relief, but will allow those who happen to have a bigger budget to actually purchase a second, yet equally unique, wedding dress.

The collection is now available at thereformation.com and in Reformation stores in Los Angeles, Soho and New York.

Schiaparelli Couture’s Fall 2016 Show Was a Tribute to the Circus Collection

Fashion

Being Schiaparelli’s newly appointed creative director and having to create the fashion house’s couture collections doesn’t seem like an easy task at all. For the Schiaparelli Couture fall/winter 2016-17 collection, which is Bertrand Guyon’s third take on couture fashion since arriving at Schiaparelli in April last year, the designer tried something new, with both Elsa Schiaparelli’s and his own takes on fashion being at the core of the entire line-up.

Schiaparelli Couture Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Show

To make things ‘easier’, he chose a motif that is a hard one to explore for sure, but would allow anyone’s creative stream of consciousness to run wild in the world of fashion: Elsa Schiaparelli’s Circus collection.

Born at the end of the Nineteenth century, Elsa Schiaparelli could be regarded as one of the most eclectic and whimsical minds of the fashion industry, with her signature surrealistic and outrageous take on fashion that is yet to be righteously outdone. Showcased in 1939, Elsa’s Circus collection is still remembered as one of the darkest and most evoking line-ups the designer has ever created, with trompe l’oeil sweaters and sinister patterns dominating the scene.

The collection surely had a strong impact on both fashion and society, and has it sort of responded to the unavoidable threats Europe (and the entire world) was about to experience.

Schiaparelli Couture Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Show

In the same way, we could righteously assume Guyon is also trying to reveal something about his perception of a society that has never stopped being at war since the very beginning of the XXI century. He seems, however, also to be celebrating the same society, reminding us that there is always something good to be glad about in this world.

Although predominantly dark-toned, the collection alternates rich blacks with Schiaparelli vibrant pinks and golden cascades of fabrics, interrupting thus the Circus collection’s darker undertones with something more cheerful.

The cuts and lines intertwine similar motifs, at times bringing in opulent, exaggerated structured lines, and at times wrapping the bodies with modern goddess-like pieces that infuse the entire line-up with moments of pure femininity.

As the collection draws to a close, we see Guyon play more and more with pastel colors and even playful refinements, as if leaving a positive and encouraging message was all he wanted to do.

The Schiaparelli Couture fall 2016 line-up could, in fact, be divided into three main sections, with the first darker part and the last more delicate one undeniably being the ones where he dared the most. In the middle, between the most Schiaparelli-inspired section and the most Guyon-approved one, there’s an appealing array of pieces that combine both the designers’ signature motifs, with retro patterns coming paired with more modern cuts and youthful lines.

Whether Guyon will keep on drawing inspiration from Schiaparelli’s unique designs is unknown. What we do know for sure, however, is that as long as he keeps on infusing his collections with poetic and metaphorically surrealistic patterns, Elsa’s legacy is preserved for sure.

Willow Smith Lands Her First Chanel Eyewear Campaign

Fashion

Is there anything cooler than Willow Smith wearing a pair of Chanel sunglasses? Judging from the first ever Willow Smith x Chanel eyewear campaign for fall 2016, well, we have to say there isn’t!

Willow Smith in Chanel Eyewear Fall 2016 Campaign

Daughter of Will and sister to Jaden Smith (who is so far one of the most innovative fashion icons ever), Willow Smith has finally landed her first ever Chanel campaign, officially becoming one of Karl Lagerfeld’s most eclectic muses.

“A multifaceted artist, writer-composer-singer and actress, Willow Smith is the embodiment of her generation’s spirit. Her youth and energy charmed Karl Lagerfeld who has invited her to join the family of CHANEL muses… Swathed in jewels from the Fall-Winter 2016/17 Ready-to-Wear collection, she breathes new energy into the world of Chanel eyewear,” said the brand’s headquarters in a press release.

Lagerfeld formally invited Willow to join Chanel’s crew back in March, leaving many thrilled and enthusiastic about such a choice.

As for the Chanel fall 2016 eyewear campaign in and of itself, get ready for the perfect match between Chanel’s signature classic lines and Willow Smith’s edgy and fresh personality. Energetic and youthful, the campaign shows 15-year-old Smith (who besides being Chanel’s brand ambassador is a singer) wearing a pair of oversized sunglasses and various different eyewear frames, paired with a wide belt worn as a chocker and dark, matte lipstick.

The campaign features two short videos as well, in which Willow dances rhythmically showing off both the Chanel AW 2016-17 eyewear proposals and her inspiring style and charismatic personality.

Willow Smith in Chanel Eyewear Fall 2016 Campaign

Shot in black & white by Karl Lagerfeld himself, whose creativity touches photography as well, Willow Smith is thus officially following in the footsteps of muses Lily-Rose DeppCara Delevingne and Kristen Stewart, who represent Chanel’s newest generation of brand ambassadors.

From her first ever ad campaign with Marc Jacobs to her debut at the Paris Fashion Week with Chanel’s fall 2016 runaway show, Willow is everywhere in the fashion industry nowadays and we can’t wait to see her in more Chanel ad campaigns in future. Her strong personality and willingness to always challenge herself can undeniably set a good example for many young teenage girls out there.

“Being a young African-American woman with dreads, it blows my mind that I’m a Chanel ambassador. I’m coming into a new part of my life that is completely unknown, and I’m jumping right in. All I can do from here is continue to shift paradigms and continue to push the envelope further and further,” she told Teen Vogue back in May. You go, girl!

Moschino’s Resort 2017 Show in LA Was a Color Festivity

Fashion

Jeremy Scott has just taken a step further toward futuristic fashion by not only showcasing his Moschino resort 2017 collection virtually, but also utilizing a revisited kind of the see-now-buy-now formula that is probably even more appealing. The Moschino resort 2017 and men’s spring 2017 live-stream ran yesterday at 7.30 pm Pacific time worldwide, while the actual runaway show took place in Los Angeles.

Moschino Resort 2017 Collection

The live-stream was both two- and three-dimensional, although the chances to watch it in 3D were very few; Jeremy Scott teamed up with virtual-reality streaming platform Livit, whose cardboard headsets were given to only 50 shoppers at Moschino’s New York and Los Angeles stores. As for the rest of Moschino customers, they had the chance to enjoy the show’s 2D live stream on Moschino.com.

Aside from this innovative way of showcasing a collection, Jeremy Scott also made it possible for the clothes to be ready for purchase right after the show, which is a great marketing formula many brands support now and that will surely bear fruit season after season. The fashion designer perfectly knows how to keep his followers and the brand’s customers in great expectations, for sure.

With the Moschino resort 2017 collection, Scott wanted to make us feel happy as well as cherish life in general, and the key to that buzz was feminizing women’s classics in a more youthful, colorful and modern way. Pin-up-inspired ensembles, such as high-waisted pencil skirts, Seventies crop-tops with off-the-shoulder necklines and optical printed designs, and even Nineties grunge t-shirt dresses were all updated with a modern touch that not only captures a sense of freshness and newness, but also seems to be particularly brought to life from anymillennial’s dream.

Many celebrities such as Katy Perry, Bella Thorne, Soko, Jhene Aiko, Christina Milian and Vanessa Hudgens were seen in the front row, which actually reinforces such a sentiment. Of course, some of the most famous Insta-Girls (such as Miranda Kerr, Hailey Baldwin and Chanel Iman) walked the catwalk as well, sharing the entire collection through their beloved IG filters.

“It’s Jeremy, so only the best and most vibrant and colorful is what you expect. His shows are always very entertaining. That’s why I come to support; he’s a creative genius. And I don’t have to travel all the way to Paris to see him, so it’s awesome,” declared Amber Rose after the show, perfectly summing up the whole concept behind the astonishing 62-piece collection.

Although featuring two separate line-ups, the overall show was quite uniform in style and mood, and both the men’s and women’s lines joined forces to celebrate colors, vibrant prints and movement. Even the total-black proposals featured rainbow-soaked details, not to mention the accessory line that was anything but boring.

Hawaiian flower leis completed most of the looks, adding overall peace & love hippy vibes to all of the different themes showcased. Scott played with different fashion movements, bonding them through a common joie de vivreattitude. Ye-ye girls, Goth bats, hippies and pin-ups can all find an updated version of their fashion persona, and Scott is particularly proud of that.

“I like the idea of all those kinds of different hand techniques and cultural things. I even did Pop Goths in all black with sunny embroidery or appliques. I was trying to play with different archetypes like the cool girls who would be, like heading down Melrose totally done up in the daytime. I just played with what I think about L.A. Maybe it’s my heightened-volume, turned-up version of it, but it’s how I see it and what I love about it. I hope people enjoy the show but also just enjoy the whole atmosphere,” Scott told WWD backstage.
