There’s nothing like Miami especially when you get to go with your best friends or family or people you just love. Now just imagine that plus getting to rock some new favourite fashion from Puma! A couple weeks ago now I jet setter three hours south with my friends down to South Beach where we turned it up turned it out lived in large and just plain out had fun. We went for two nights for my friends birthday and really really made some memories. Even though we were only there for a couple days it felt like we were there for a week because of all the Fabulous stuff we did during our time there from amazing dinners and lunches days at the beach to party party parties! Aside from all of this madness I also got to debut a pair of my new Tsugi Shinsei from Puma that I have been waiting to wear and thought why not wait for Miami because it would be the perfect destination to rock all white like it’s nobody’s business!!! I definitely have to say it was an added bonus that the Tsugi Shinsei shoes also double not only as one of my best looking shoes but AS ONE OF MY MOST COMFORTABLE hands down!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!.. The sock like structure and feeling makes them a breeze to slip on and just get going with!!! Oh and of course, the Puma x Rihanna, Fenty collab Kimono jacket made it’s debut too because #YASSSSSS!
A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Spring/Summer 2017 launch party for Cutler & Gross’ new collection for the season. It was a fun night filled with some of my favourite people good drinks some yummy bites and of course some super fierce eyewear. That evening I had the pleasure of connecting with the amazing Cutler & Gross team all the way in from the U.K. and (of course) also trying on some new amazing shades!!! I fell in love with too many things to mention but then there was one pair that I could not get my hands off of (can you guess which ones LOL) – One thing I love most about Cutler & Gross sunglasses is the fact that they are all products that are handmade so you know that the workmanship, quality and I would say, most importantly durability of these frames are built to last!!! I’ve had a pair for about three years now and they have really been surviving the test of time, which with my hectic, busy lifestyle is such a plus!!!!!! Anyways enjoy some of my favorite photos from the night and don’t forget to check them out online or at their boutique here in Toronto at 758 Queen St. West!!!
Probably one of my.. IF NOT.. My favourite collections from New York Fashion Week!! When I saw the crystal pieces come down for the final three looks YOU already know I started shaking in my boots! I literally have never needed anything more in my entire life then I need that crystal jumpsuit on Jasmine Tookes!
Haute Couture is something of a phenomena for me.. I say this because a couple years back I had the pleasure of being a guest of Chanel and travelling to Paris to experience the Lesage & Lemarie couture ateliers where I really got to see, learn and feel the passion and artwork that goes behind creating couture pieces.. The endless hours of embroidery, the insanely precise attention to detail and of course the beautiful and untouchable work that ends up being produced..
For Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2017 Haute Couture collection (that I am sure we ALL unapologetically glued our eyes to during Couture Week) Karl Lagerfeld ‘transposed the ambiance of 31, rue Cambon without copying every detail.’ Inspired by the very things that are iconic Chanel… One main part being the mirrors that reflect the grand staircase leading up to the CHANEL Haute Couture salons, makes this collection one of my favourite Chanel Haute Couture collections to date, and that is pretty monumental for me considering that Chanel’s Fall 2010 Haute Couture collection has not only been a favourite from the brand but has been one of if not my most favourite Haute Couture collection in GENERAL!! I loved the super metallic and slick vibes.. It was such a contrast of such futuristic elements but with classic silhouettes.. I loved how Gatsby from the future, everything felt!
This season Karl Lagerfeld maintained his mastery at blending fabrics to create such unique textiles for the garments… I saw a lace laminated in a sort of plastic intertwined into a jacket that you would never notice until you really looked and felt.. The extreme sequin tuxedo literally had me wishing I could find prince charming already and plan my fitting for my wedding look #YASSSSS!! There were so many overwhelming moments for me because YOU KNOW how much I love sparkle and shine when done so, so tastefully!! This was literally yet another dream-like-state-inducing-experience c/o of my friends at Chanel!!! See more pictures below and be whisked away to another reality with me.. Even just for a moment!! Enjoy!! Xx
“You can have a girl jump around and have everything beautiful, or you can choose to tell a human story that highlights someone you love,” told Brandon Maxwell about his Spring 2017 campaign.. And that this did, literally hooked my eyes to the screen from that beginning March on the Detroit streets to the closing of the divider at the end… Designer, Brandon Maxwell enlisted his close friend and muse Riley Montana to share a glimpse of her self showcasing her Detroit roots.. Captured by filmmaker Jessy Price the eye-opening mini fashion film showcases not only the humble roots of a fashion power’s muse but of course also the gorgeous clothing of designer Brandon Maxwell’s Spring 2017 collection… Enjoy
I think one of the biggest surprises that hit the mens fashion week runways was definitely the collaboration between Louis Vuitton & Supreme! I think it quite literally broke the fashion industries & hype-beasts alike internet lol!!! It was in a fashion + street-lovers sense… SENSORY OVERLOAD!! Here are some exclusive behind the scenes images I got from the Louis Vuitton Press Release to share with you guys!
I am freakishly mesmerized by this coat that shows during John Galliano’s Spring 2017 couture collection for Maison Martin Margiela…. The piece, which showed in Paris just a few days ago now, during the couture shows shares a face moulded and embroidered from tulle on a simple long coat which I just can not take my eyes off of… Quite frankly I find this is just simply genius and the epitome of wearable art… This is really John Galliano re-asserting himself as one of THE creative forces in fashion… I literally wish to have been able to see this move down the runway… I feel, this moment just needs.. Well… a moment!
Debuting at the Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear show, the Chanel GABRIELLE bag is a ‘mischievous wink to Gabrielle Chanel’. Karl Lagerfeld wanted it to have the same aesthetic and practical spirit in that blend of strength and elegance that characterises CHANEL handbags. Fitted on a rigid thermoformed base, the main body of the bag is extremely light and ultra-supple: this contrasting structure gives it perfect stability and makes finding belongings effortless. In tune with a continuing search for comfort advocated by the founder of the House, it hugs the silhouette, moving with the gait and never hindering it. Its adjustable strap comes with a double chain woven from leather and golden and silver metal. A highly original detail permitting several ways of wearing it: over the shoulder, across the body or both at the same time, with the chain going over one shoulder and then diagonally across the other. Here is your first look at the bag via a sketch by Karl Lagerfeld, himself! Also, Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret and Pharrell Williams, all CHANEL ambassadors, along with Cara Delevingne, a friend of the House, to embody CHANEL’s GABRIELLE bag.
When you think that one… One being, Uncle Karl, could never out do himself.. There he goes again.. Then again, we should know by now, that there is never really any stopping the genius that is Karl Lagerfeld…. For the Spring/Summer 2017 collection runway presentation, Team Chanel, turned the Grand Palais into a digital science center making “Intimate technology” the theme of his collection. It is stated that Lagerfeld’s vision for this collaboration ‘celebrates a woman walking through kilometres of cables, metallic racks and computer cabinets: she is the very heart of the Data Center CHANEL, she who is the final word and the mistress of this digital universe. This season more than ever, with grace and tenderness, femininity takes control in a collection that allies the audacity of lingerie and the comfort of tweed. The Spring-Summer 2017 CHANEL woman wears her babydoll and negligee in silk and lace. And over that she nonchalantly sports a tweed jacket with rounded shoulders, long sleeves and wide lapels, and a pair of culottes zipped at the front and back. She wears a robot-clutch.’ – All in all I have to say THAT LITTLE MINI ROBOT CLUTCH IS EVERYTHINGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!! I said on social media ‘let the OCD’ begin.. I can imagine it’s already pre-ordered to the gods and back!!!! Can’t wait to see these looks (my favourites above) come to life in campaigns, editorials and more as the time comes! Happy #PFW!
How is it that every time Karl Lagerfeld puts together a show it captivates more then the last? This season for Chanel’s autumn/winter 2016/17 haute couture runway show, Karl Lagerfeld gave me chilling but beautiful flashbacks of the days I spent roaming the halls of the Metiers d’Art Ateliers LESAGE & LEMARIÉ… The collection itself was yet another beautiful array of iconic Chanel silhouettes (slightly slimmed down, I feel for this collection) and of course great details and accessories! Enjoy!!
