London Fashion Week Fall 2014 -Trends

Exactly the same! That´s what we think about London Fashion Week. If I have to be honest, this week is one of the least attractive ones, at least in the choice of designers. Burberry, Mary Katrantzou, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Matthew Williamson, Tom Ford, Julien Mcdonald and increasingly popular Emilia Wickstead belong to the better-known personalities and they presented almost the same trends as the designers at NYFW.
So just to repeat: suits, metallic shades, black, all in one color, but also multi-coloring or patterns were not missing on the London´s runways.
Our favorite one from this week is Burberry Prorsum´s collection, about which you can read more here.
Whereas in the article from NYFW we have already mentioned something about these trends, today we are only attaching a few photos of the most interesting models.
(Names of the designers listed below the particular trend are only to inform you and they may not be identical with photos that we have chosen to show the trend. More photos and designers can be found on our FB page.)

Ako cez kopirák! Presne tak sa nám javil  londýnsky fashion week. Ak máme byť úprimné, tento week je asi najmenej atraktívny, aspoň čo sa týka výberu dizajnérov. Burberry, Mary Katrantzou, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Matthew Williamson, Tom Ford, Julien Mcdonald, a čím ďalej tým viac populárna, Emilia Wickstead patria medzi tie zvučnejšie osobnosti a  predstavili takmer rovnaké trendy ako dizajnéri z NYFW. 
Takže len pre zopakovanie: obleky, metalické odtiene, čierna, všetko v jednej farbe, ale aj rôznofarebnosť či vzory nechýbali ani na londýnskych prehliadkových mólach.
Za našu srdcovku tohto týždňa považujeme jednoznačne kolekciu Burberry Prorsum, o ktorej viac nájdete  tu.
Keďže v článku z NYFW sme už čo-to k týmto trendom napísali, dnes vám prikladáme teda už len pár fotiek najzaujímavejších modelov.
(Mená dizajnérov, uvedených pod daným trendom slúžia len  pre informáciu a nemusia byť totožné s fotkami, ktoré sme vybrali pre zobrazenie trendu. Viac fotiek a dizajnérov nájdete na našej FB stránke)


Metallic shades (Metalické odtiene)

fashion idols #4: BadGalRiri "Fashion´s Most Exciting Muse"


"You know who is the best who ever did it? Princess Diana. She was like - she killed it. Every look was right. She was gangster with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got over-size jackets. I loved everything she wore!" (Rihanna)

Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Barbadian singer, who´s really proud of her exotic roots, celebrates tomorrow (20th of February) her 26 birthday. We congratulate her, too, and as a gift, we decided to include her as the forth one in our Fashion Idols series... :)

Look of the day: Suki Waterhouse with her personalized Burberry poncho

Hand-paitend Burberry...


We love, we love, the newest Christopher Bailey´s collection! The whole show, which he presented yesterday, was absolutely the best what we have seen until now (thus up to the moments when Paloma Faith ´s voice reminded shrieking rather than singing).
Live music, front row full of stars, Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, Malaika Firth, Edie Campbel, Jourdan Dunn on the runway and beautiful, mostly hand-painted models. For a long time Christopher has been demonstrating that he is one of the best. So to know what we are talking about, we suggest watching the video from the yesterday´s fashion show. Plus we add a few photos of the best models. More photos can be found on our FB page.

P.S. Dear Christopher, next time, however, instead of an email that reminded us of the fashion show, please send us a real invitation! Thank you :)

P.S.S. Do you have the same urge to buy a blanket with your own initials? Of course exactly the same we saw on the show?:)

Trends from NYFW Fall 2014


Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Hérve Léger, Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu and many other famous, but also less known designers presented their newest collections for fall/winter 2014 during the NY fashion week.
Snow storms, with which the whole New York was fighting and basically all fashion fans that were in this city, did not prevent the designers to present their vision for the next season. As it is said: "Show must go on..."

Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Hérve Léger, Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu a mnoho ďalších známych, ale aj menej známych dizajnérov odprezentovalo svoje najnovšie kolekcie na jeseň/zimu 2014 práve počas NY fashion weeku.
Ani snehové búrky, s ktorými bojoval celý New York, a v podstate všetci módny fanúšikovia nachádzajúci sa v tomto meste, nezabránili návrhárom odprezentovať svoje vízie na najbližšiu zimnú sezónu.  Ako sa hovorí : "Show must go on..."

It is kind of funny to write about the trends for the next winter, when we still haven´t had one yet... And it is clear to me that a lot of you hope that we even won´t have one..:)

Oversized, suits, outfits in one color, white, black, but also pink.... This is just a part of what New York offered us. We have chosen for you the trends we consider as the most favorite ones for the upcoming season.

Ono je trochu smiešne písať, aké trendy budeme nosiť budúcu zimu, keď sme sa ešte ani nedočkali tohtoročnej... A je mi jasné, že mnohí dúfate, že ani nedočkáme..:)
Oversized, kostými, outfit v jednej farbe, biela, čierna, ale aj ružová.... To je len zlomok toho, čo nám New York ponúkol. My sme pre vás vybrali tie trendy, ktoré považujeme za jasných favoritov nasledujúcej sezóny.

Suit up!
Jason Wu, The Row, Hugo Boss, Richard Chai,....
No matter whether you choose a pantsuit or the skirt one. One thing is certain, you´ll definitely score some points. This trend is becoming one of my favorites and if you really want to reach the perfect ending, we suggest omitting the blouse under the jacket. Thus, of course not, when you are going to business meeting...:)

Jason Wu, The Row, Hugo Boss, Richard Chai,....
Je jedno či si vyberiete nohavicový kostým alebo sukňový. Jedno je isté, bodovať budete určite. Tento trend začína byť jedným z mojich obľúbených, a ak ho chcete naozaj dotiahnuť do perfektného výsledného konca, odporúčame vynechať blúzku pod sakom. Teda samozrejme nie, ak sa chystáte na pracovné stretnutie...:)

Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary : "The Doll That Started It All" (Update)

Emily Ratajkowski, Kate Moss, Kate Upton, Irina Shayk,... Even our ideas were different. A few weeks ago we guessed that Emily will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated 50th anniversary issue for year 2014. Because of that we were really surprised when we saw this cover for the first time. Another doll, like from Mattel, but this time literally!
On Tuesday this unusual issue with a 55 year old beauty on the cover will hit stands. Even the lucky ones will be able to purchase this Barbie on target.com. Doll, that started it all. Great marketing move, from which Mattel seeks to raise declining popularity of this brand. At least they surprised, we think! Information was brought by foxsports.com.
But fortunately they did not leave it only to this unusual cover, which is actually a limited edition of 1000 copies. And so the latest cover of the magazine Sports Illustrated goes to three models, Lily Aldridge, Nina Agdal and Chrissy Teigen. This time it was a right choice, one more beautiful than the other!

Emily Ratajkowski, Nina Agdal, Kate Moss, Kate Upton, Irina Shayk,... Aj naše predstavy boli rôzne. Už pred pár týždňami sme práve Emily tipovali ako horúcu kandidátku na titulku 50-teho vydania magazínu Sports Illustrated pre rok 2014. O to prekvapenejšie sme, keď sme titulku prvý krát zbadali. Ďalšia bábika, ako od Mattela, no tentokrát doslova!
Už v utorok sa toto neobvyklé číslo s 55-ročnou kráskou na obálke dostane do predaja, ba dokonca tí šťastnejší si budú môcť takúto Barbie zakúpiť na stránke target.com. Bábika, ktorá to všetko začala. Skvelý marketingový ťah, ktorým sa Mattel snaží zvýšiť klesajúcu popularitu tejto značky. Podľa nás minimálne prekvapili! Informácie priniesol portál foxsports.com.
No našťastie to celé nenechali len na tejto neobvyklej titulke, ktorá je len limitovanou edíciou s počtom 1000 výtlačkov. A tak najnovšia titulka magazínu Sports Illustrated patrí až trom modelkám, Lily Aldridge, Nine Agdal a Chrissy Teigen. Tentokrát to bol správny výber, jedna krajšia ako druhá!

It´s Show(s) Time...



And it´s (finally) here! Fashion week in NY was officially launched on February 6. But not only NYFW has started, but basically the entire month of fashion, which ends in the first week of March in Paris. We can say that a month full of the newest trends and inspiration for the fall/winter 2014-2015 season is ahead.
Over the next few weeks we will try to inform you about the news from NY, London, Milan and Paris. For each of these cities there will be an album on our FB account, where you will find chosen models from the best designers. Simply "The Best of" ... And on the blog we are going to publish a small summary of what that particular fashion week brought.

StreetStyle Icon: Hanneli Mustaparta

Hanneli Mustaparta. Norwegian native, who is a photographer, blogger and occasional model, is one of my favorite. I "discovered" her nearly a year ago, but since that time I like to watch her style almost every day.
When she was 17 she was discovered by a fashion photographer. Gradually, however, she started to work for Vogue, H&M or America´s Next Topmodel project. Not as a model, but as a stylist, which also belongs to her work.
Hanneli appears at the fashion weeks, and, of course, she is one of the fashion icons. One of the witnesses of her popularity is the fact that since 2011 fashion house Zara has been producing t-shirts, on which we can see Hanneli in her street style looks.
If Hanneli impressed you, you can follow her on Instagram or on her blog.

Hanneli Mustaparta. Norská rodáčka, ktorá je fotografkou, bloggerkou a príležitostnou modelkou, patrí medzi moje obľúbenkyne. "Objavila" som ju len pred necelým rokom, ale od vtedy s obľubou sledujem jej štýl takmer každý deň.
Keď mala 17 rokov bola objavená módnym fotografom. Postupne však začala pracovať pre Vogue, H&M či America´s Next Topmodel projekt . Nie však ako modelka, ale ako stylistka, čo rovnako patrí k náplni jej práce.
Hanneli sa objavuje na fashion weekoch a pochopiteľne patrí medzi medzi módne ikony. O jej obľúbenosti svedčí aj fakt, že od roku 2011 vyrába módny dom Zara tričká, na ktorých je práve Hanneli vo svojich streetstylovych lookoch.
Ak vás Hanneli zaujala môžete ju sledovať na instagrame alebo jej blogu.

StreetStyle Icon: Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo. We think there is no need to introduce this 27 year old American woman, which can boast about the title IT GIRL. Even in Slovakia, Olivia is known and is also an idol of many fashion enthusiasts.
Her career began with shows The Hills and The City (both broadcasted on MTV). There is nothing wrong about her taste and style. Unlike Mira, Olivia combines rather simpler pieces and she doesn´t belong to the ones, who would experiment or try to impress with something eccentric. In addition to the designer pieces she wears clothes available for ordinary people (zara, mango, asos,...), too.
Another big plus is her boyfriend. Johannes Huebl, a sample of handsome man, doesn´t fall behind his fiancé. These two always look like "cut out of magazine" and we just hope, that except from woman which will be naturally inspired by Olivia´s taste, men will try to learn something from Johannes!
If only ....:)

P.S. You can find some tips, advice and inspiration from Olivia directly from her page.

Olivia Palermo. Myslíme si, že túto 27ročnú Američanku, ktorá sa môže pýšiť označením IT GIRL, vám netreba predstavovať. Dokonca aj na Slovensku je Olivia známa a patrí medzi vzory nejedného módneho nadšenca. 
Jej kariéru odštartovali relácie The Hills a The City (obe vysielala stanica MTV). Jej vkusu a štýlu sa nedá hádam nič vytknúť. Narozdiel od Miri, Olivia kombinuje skôr jednoduchšie kúsky a nepatrí medzi tých, čo by experimentovali alebo sa snažili zaujať niečim výstredným. Okrem dizajnérskych modelov nosí aj oblčenie dostupné pre obyčajných ľudí (zara, mango, asos, ...).
Ďalším veľkým plusom je jej partner. Johannes Huebl. Tento ukážkový fešák za svojou snúbenicou rozhodne nezaostáva. Títo dvaja vyzerajú vždy ako "vystrihnutý z magazínu" a my len dúfame, že okrem žien, ktoré sa prirodzene inšpiruju Oliviinim vkusom, sa pokúsia aj páni čo to odkukať od Johannesa!
Kiežby...:)

P.S. Tipy, rady a inšpirácie môžete od Olivii čerpať priamo z jej  stránky.
