Best of Couture Week.

Image

After traveling most of June and July, I finally found some time to express myself after so many influences during the early summer months. To be completely honest I think the couture weeks are my favorite source of fashion inspiration. The more over the top the better. And ever since the discussion on weather trends were actually still relevant anymore, I seek to the extravagant even more!
I noticed that angles were in every department. At Viktor&Rolf in broken frames as sleeves, crossed and ripped out face paintings at Margiela and pipe smoking models at Jean Paul Gaultier.

But first and foremost —> My go to look on European evenings.

Pop of Blue Accents SS15

Image

Black and beige are the classic staple colors for sure, but I have always considered blue to be one of the top candidates to complement the staples. Blue, being the color of denim has a natural home in the staple closet and has always showed up in one tone or another on the runway.

Spring/Summer 2015 is no exception, and this season’s shades of blue range from almost turquoise (scuba blue) to beautifully saturated “classic blue” which surprisingly has made it feel updated and fun again (classic blue has a tendency to appear in a marine setting which I think has gone and come back one time too many). This inspires lovely new combos of blue where the shades can be mixed and matched in an endless number of trendy combos as well as worn as a pop accent on shoes or handbags.

Below we’ve collected a number of examples where these shades of blue can be found on the runway and on the high street. As you can see it pairs beautifully with darker shades of blue, classic white summer pieces, light gray and even matt deep red lip tones. So dont be afraid to pick it up in your makeup!

I’ll wear blue as a splash of color with a clutch, or in a funky t-shirt print with some black pants or jeans. I’m also keen to see if I can find a summer sandal with a dusty blue contrast color. I’ll keep you posted!

It is always really thrilling when you start to see your forecast take place on the streets on actual people! These looks of “yolk yellow” as we like to call it for this season has been seen in all fashion elements, including a lot of cool accessories.
Many online publications calls this colour “unexpected” but I stand by our forecast saying its totally coming for spring!

Can’t wait to see what’s next for this spring..

SS15 COLORCAST “STRONG ACCENTS”

Image

Welcome to our last color forecast for this season. We would like to say that we saved the best for last, but I love all of the seasons combinations equally and It just happen to go from light to dark this time.

These colours are more saturated but in a grey cast so they are cold, and therefore will look really great in our spring outerwear and leather goods and accessories. Even the pink has a grey tone to it which makes it more sophisticated and settle than a lot of neon pink you usually see for the spring seasons. Last season Blues were yellow casted and loud, now they have become more toned down and somber for SS15, which is something I have always preferred when styling, mostly because I don’t like too much contrast. Even though this color palette seem very dark for spring it all makes sense when you look at the runway and the couture shows where we get our main inspiration from. I will link back to this color series when I write our accessories report!

Stay tuned! Re.

CURRENT COLOR TREND; MUSTARD

Image

This fall, the color mustard is everywhere, yet its not one of our main hues for the season. Sometimes we add colours from our “secondary” color library to the main chart further into the season. This is what we decided to do with our “misty ocra” or mustard as I like to call it since its more in a grey scale than the more traditional yellow that is made in a green cast.
This color does very well in form of heavy materials, such as wool and thick yarn knits in coats and winter sweaters, however I love a saturated mustard trouser with a front pleat or a side line. Combine this color with other saturated darker contrasting hues or a light nude/beige for the ultimate fall 14′ look.10646966_857825334250176_8389711719039519186_n01-moscow-fashion-week-street-style_001937b670cff96a7871998175130a417d42572ee52110c1d06505d861b5d7b35be_MON0226_MON0256_MON028324b57dd88edf9f04274da20c0c63033bc13f9d1349623f38b060eb9e22d9dad6milan-fashion-week-spring-summer-2015-street-style-1-1931499d2847d5894b9dbc4453070243b8Street looks from Stockholm, Milan, Russia and Paris.
