GABRIELLE UNION WADE IN PORTS 1961 WOMENSWEAR
Actress Gabrielle Union Wade wears Ports 1961 Womenswear Pre Spring 2016 jumpsuit in Beijing on July 20th.
Campos has reimagined what it means to be a man of the world, centering his view on a look that is relaxed and unconditionally effortless. The nomadic Carlos Campos man dons a new uniform and immerses himself into the Cuban tobacco felds. A nod to Art Deco architecture inspires the feeling of enjoyment and “sabor Cubano.”
By creating a utilitarian look inspired by the uniform, Campos tells a story, worker by day but always a man of the night. With a new hybrid jacket aptly named “The Jackebera,” he blends the classic guayabera with the impeccable tailoring the brand is known for. The palette refects the attitude of the season with shades of green reminiscent of unpicked tobacco leaves. Along with his signature navy, he incorporates a “Deco Stripe” print full of movement and color. Suitings are loose, shirts are undone, trousers are fuller.
To make a journey means to be digging into the landscape. The traveller is,
in fact, able to go deep down “as an archaeologist through different layers of reality, to read even the hidden signs under other signs, to collect as many existences and stories as possible, and save them from the flow of time and from the erasing wave of oblivion” (C. Magris). It is a meticulous and humble work of discovery: a process of knowledge in which it is possible to collect fragments of reality as well as possibilities set aside, banned or removed.
The clothes of the Men’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection are the reflection of this travelling. They keep traces of otherness; echoes of spaces, crossed or imagined; temporalities, plural and thickened. Each suit is a kaleidoscope of signs poetically reassembled to create new meanings. The travel, in fact, can untie the knots of the soul; can harbour wonder and magic; can put a spell back on existence. It’s like falling in love, when the world suddenly unfolds as something new.
To make a journey implies separating, leaving, becoming, moving. It’s an unexpected encounter. Open-mindedness and possibility. But, above all, is a return. In Heinrich von Ofterdingen (Novalis), the wayfarers were asked: “Where are you going?”. And the unequivocal answer was: “Always homeward”. In this sense “the sense of home that everybody, in nostalgia, believes to see in childhood, is instead at the end of the journey. The latter is circular; it starts from home, goes through the world and comes back home, even though it is a very different home, because it gained meaning thanks to the departure, the original split” (C. Magris).
The collection entitled "Vai", named after the West African Tribe by which Ayasa originated, in an opulent interperation of the indigenous wardrobe and foliage of Cape Mount, Liberia; where the Vai tribe derives. Colored with rich tones and cascading with feminine silhouettes, the F/W 2016 collection is the elevated view of culture from the designer's genius.
NewbarK was launched in 2009, by the stylist sister duo - Maryam and Marjan Malakpour.The LA-based luxury brand is best known for elegant, minimalistic, comfortable shoes and handbags. All Newbark products are handmade in Los Angeles, California.
The name NewbarK comes from the saying “My dogs are barking” which means my feet are in pain! The debut collection was a single item - a simple pair of foldable leather shoes that fit into a small carrying pouch. They are a stylish alternative to ballet flats and a perfect item to carry anywhere. They have been described as “Moroccan Babouche meets English gentleman’s slippers”.NewbarK’s collections have since evolved into a complete range of flats, boots and accessories that continue to capture the function and style that the brand’s cult following so adore.
The collection is all about the Melanie loafer. Created now four seasons ago. Inspired by menswear style 70’s loafer, chunky heel, classic with a twist of Rock and Roll. The sleek tuxedo look about it is timeless, looks great worn with iconic tuxedo suit or mini dress or skirt with shnets or tights. The black patent and kid suede combination is a must have in all time favorite.
The Paris-based artist, Justin Morin collaborated with Ghesquière on the set, which took shape as an ad hoc arrangement of 57 concrete columns ripped in half and clad in smashed mirrored tiles (an installation that was inspired by his work 'Melted Bones', 2011). It looked like some meteorite had hit the Louis Vuitton Foundation from outer space. While we're on the subject of epic journeys, for show goers - including Léa Seydoux, Selena Gomez, Jaden Smith and Alicia Vikander - it was no small task arriving here this morning. With a public transport strike, heavy rain and traffic to contend with, the show was 45-minutes late in starting. It proved to be worth the wait.
Ghesquière loosened up the silhouette with a series of bias-cut silk skirts in graphic black and red, which were seemingly held together with silver staples. But if the lower half was loosened, the top half was rigorous and strict. Shrunken patent coats were buttoned only at the waist, tails left to fly; second-skin pannier jackets with ring-pull zips added curve and accentuated wasp waists; while his finale silk dresses were free-flowing except for armoured leather bra-tops that wrapped around torsos and keyed a tougher edge.
There was something about it all that looked ready for battle, even the black narrow trouser suit, which had vertical gashes revealing white beneath, looked as though it had gone 10 rounds and came out on top. The collection was animated with a sports vibe, his muse is a woman on the move "whose elegance springs from her dynamism", and if the sporty mohair sweaters and remodelled track pants with cargo pockets and contrast piping were anything to go by, one got the impression that this season she had her motocross bike parked outside.
Chanel gave the feeling of a couture salon, and was entirely in the manner that Mademoiselle Chanel would have presented her new season clothes in her atelier during the Fifties. Between this and Saint Laurent's couture show last night - presented without music, and every look announced with a number, old-school style (by the same speaker who did so for Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent's shows) - designers are feeling a touch nostalgic; and it stands to reason, during a time of much debate surrounding the current fashion show schedule and format. And yet, Lagerfeld likes nothing more than to tap into a 21st-century youth market; pin-up Pharrell Williams sat front row in a frosted tweed Chanel jacket - although surely what he had his eye on here, from this morning's line-up, was the box fresh white sweatshirt that fastened at the back with chunky gold Chanel buttons.
This was Chanel for a new generation, and it neatly chimed with the elevated streetwear trend that's storming the autumn/winter 2016 runways. Even Lagerfeld's tweed suiting with its frayed deconstructed edges appeared tougher and more robust, in one instance it came with a waterproof nylon khaki shrug, made for the real world and ready for urban streets and changing weather fronts. From the quilted drawstring jacket on Gigi Hadid, to the padded leather hoody on Kendall Jenner, this was less ladylike, with utility luxe at the fore. There were gabardine trench coats and waterproof macs, shooting jackets rendered in denim and sweater dresses punched in grommets. A two-finger peace sign also popped up, outlined in diamanté posing as a belt buckle and elsewhere worked into prints alongside blown-up images of gardenia. But the hit print to take away is the one of Choupette's face, Lagerfeld's pampered cat, spotted on lurex pleated skirts.

First out: oversized squashy mohair and boiled tweed coats, cinched in with wire belts. Next, a series of pretty quilted pieces in California orange, tweed, and butter yellow, which slipped coquettishly off shoulders, secured with a series of snap fastenings. The leather pieces were equally palatable, having been bonded with metal to create permanent creasing. Voluminous and, at times, boyish, as in the case of a pillar box red construction workers jumpsuit, they looked the sort of thing the Acne girl, currently clad in its sell-out Velocite shearling jacket, will fall for next winter. The footwear was less compelling - certain flat styles resembled discarded sushi trays, and the models struggling to keep their toes under flimsy straps were an uncomfortable distraction that recalled the seedy side of a dominatrix act - but there was plenty else here that was winning.
That lingerie mood is still sweeping through the autumn collections and Henry was right to tap it this time. Triangle bras were veiled under priest-collared sheer organza blouses in nude, and elsewhere smokey-coloured lace camisole tops formed the top half to straight dresses made of eel skin. (Shiny leathers were a recurring theme here; wipe clean, glossy black trench coats had something of the dominatrix about them, so too did others in outsize proportions in sheeny steely grey with ironed-in creases). Romy Schneider was on his mood board, so too, ideas on women in love, dressing up for a date.
Not that this could be described as romantic. Henry seems keen to take the pretty out of Ricci, and that's not an easy transition when it's built its name upon delicate wisps-of-silk dresses, boudoir sweaters, and wasp-waisted silhouettes.

Brass rivets and zips added to the tough authentic feel of all these leather pieces, while cascading ruffled chiffon shirts in black, cream and a startling emerald green added femininity to wide leather culottes and long A-line skirts. These you knew would all be the instant sellers. It is Clare Waight Keller's instinct for these - rather than headline-grabbing new twists in direction - that has made her tenure at Chloé so successful.
Alternating among these tougher looks were plenty of Chloé's signature romantic silk and chiffon flowing peasant dresses (a little challenging in their size, which could drown rather than flatter the wearer) and elaborately embroidered kaftans (another commercial winner) with tufted sprigs of brightly-coloured wool sprouting like new blades of tundra.
Giorgetti splits his time between Pucci in Florence and MSGM in Milan; six months has clearly given him time to immerse himself in those archives. Peter Dundas, the previous creative director, worked the Pucci girl up into a hot mess of a poolside sex pot – but Giorgetti’s has a more streetwise eye that chimes with the daywear directives on which the house was founded. The optical prints in Slim Aarons colours that have endeared Pucci to the public since the Forties were back in the form of a coral-infused mountain-range print, and another of swirling post-box-red chevrons. These decorated pencil skirts, silk-printed midi dresses with the requisite trailing sleeve, and pyjama-style separates. Several came with black silk Pucci-logoed shirts, a signature Giorgetti’s been playing around with on tasselled bags.
