Moschino A/W’16. Sheer Art Attack

February 1, 2016

With so many brands changing their business strategy, it’s hard to keep up these days. The frequent yawning gulf between the catwalk collection and the retailers’ offering is bad enough, but how do we ascertain when a collection is actually available? It started off at Burberry, which made pieces available immediately after the catwalk show. […]

As the recent spate of catwalk shows indicate, period influences are very much en vogue for A/W’13. From ’50s cocktail dresses (at Lanvin, shown below) to re-worked ’40s elegance (at Prada) and a whole host of ’60s rampant picks from go-go dresses to little 3/4 length suits (at Jasper Conran) to Pucci’s cool Talitha Getty’esque […]

Nobody Does it Better – Celine A/W’13

March 3, 2013

I’m the world’s first to say that I’ve swayed hither and dither over Celine’s collections in the past and their sharp minimalism that’s seemingly so un-me.

Prada’s Modern Film Noir Heroine Wows Milan A/W’13

February 23, 2013

Prada’s more than a bit of an anachronism for me. Veering in one direction and then another from season to season, sometimes it makes me wonder who is in charge of the reigns?

Now here’s a surprise. A new men’s fragrance that doesn’t overpower, is fresh yet gentle and with hint soft dry lavender, traditional in older fragrances, but being bang right up to date, which is only what you’d expect from both Prada and perfumer, Daniela Andrier.
