    Checkered world

    Fashion for the checkered texture leaves us with a reproach for a bad taste, but it always comes back, crashing out of the blue. However, the most interesting thing is forms that are filled with a wide color range of tartan fabric. One of the most outstanding collections fall / winter 2013 – 2014 was the Moschino fashion show. The collection looks more like a carnival thematic: either Royal Guards have dressed high-heels shoes, or the Scottish horsewoman have had a party before the show jumping. The clothes are beautiful, elegant, but sometimes very artsy and pretentious. On the other hand mass-market produces beautiful and interesting models for adequate price category. More recently, we…

    50 shades of pearls

    “A women needs ropes and ropes of pearls” said beautiful Coco Chanel and she was right. Chanel has carried out a revolution in the minds of women all over the world. Now, naked woman is not considered as a nude woman, but woman without a pearl necklace is. Have you ever thought about the origin of this jewelry? These pellets have a long and interesting history that began much earlier than Coco erected pearls on the throne of elegance and beauty.   The name “pearl” supposedly comes from the East, where it was found, but there are a lot of legends about the birth.

    Crazy for art

    Recently I’ve been thinking how to make print in the form of Michelangelo’s frescoes on my sweatshirts, and world designers almost in unison decorated their collections by the famous paintings. Skirts look like naturalistic paintings, dresses with accurate brushstrokes and tops with surrealism – it’s definitely cool! The first thing what attracted my attention was a winter 2014 collection of Dolce and Gabbana. There are no words to describe my feelings for it. It is indescribably beautiful, elegant and has a national flavor. Montreal cathedral frescoes, crowns, luxury and gold. Certainly it is divine. Givenchy Men’s collection caused a serious religious scandal. Tisci borrowed the images of saints from William Bouguereau. Fragments of the “Pieta”…

    Welcome to jungle

    Perhaps one of the most summer trends, bright, juicy and creating a holiday mood is a tropical print. Apart from the floral print it took the top place on the catwalks of the world. We admire and wear floral print for several seasons in contrast to tropical. This year, designers presented palm trees, exotic animals and birds in all summer collections, and the next summer season promises to be even more interesting. Speaking about this season, I’d like to highlight the mass market. The most interesting collections was Zara, H&M and River Island. It was the really great look at the youth and summer fashion trends. Starting from the swimwear and finishing with trousers…

    Twist&tweed

    Tweed is a rough woollen fabric, which is made by a special unfinished technology. It has a open, flexible texture and possibility to create direct lines. Unusual color combinations are obtained by twisting together differently coloured woollen strands into a two-or three-ply yarn. Originally tweed called twill, but it has received a different name because of the randomness and mistakes of a merchant. It`s not surprise that the birthplace of tweed is Scotland. In those days the economy has grown at the expense of woolen industry, the Scots are also famous for their delicious kilts. This fabric is a source of British national pride in the same list with the whiskey and kilts. The…

    Returning to Rome

    This season, Tom Ford gave us a real surprise – the gladiator’s shoes. Black, white, gold, silver …. We can dress them up and go for a female fights in the coliseum, we can go to the store for milk, or watch them at home. To be honest, for me, this thing has remained unclear, but it looks stunning. In ancient Rome, in Latin, these shoes called Calceus (calcei): the shoe that covered the whole foot compared to the sandals. It was laced shoes with the separate inner and outer soles, straps were wrapped around the leg. Slaves were not allowed to wear these boots. Belts could be up to…
