RE Photo Inspo of the week!

Image

Landed and settled back in New York for fashion week we let ourselves look for
different influences this time around. I have always been a great fan of Nick Knight and his art. Recently he released a photo selection with a variety of designers participating in a
shoot for V magazine.
While we work on our reports I wanted to share some of my favourite shots from the shoot here in at Milk studios in LA.148453_960n 148455_960n 148446_960n 148448_960n 148447_960n 148443_960n 148442_960n 148450_960n 148454_960n 148451_960n

Style Stealer of the week – Clemence Posey

Image

Ok , So I usually don’t have a lot to say about actresses when it comes to style. However we absolutely adore Clemence!
She just has that effortless parisian style that we all try to achieve from time to time but never really get there. Her signature style is quite romantic and she often wears liberty flower prints combined with a lot of leather and suede.
One of our favorite looks this spring season is her long skirt with a leather biker and matching biker boots which she carries so incredibly well with that wavy blonde bob!
Clemence also stunns in her tomboy style thus she often wears boots and tailored blazers with a pleated trouser to shows, sometimes with just a lace top or a simple white shirt to keep it classy.
Another way we have seen her is in a signature Chanel tweed piece combined with a mini skirt strutting around the European fashion shows with a sky high heel to stay true to her super french heritage.

Either outfit, we love her sense of delicacy and cannot wait to catch her next time in Paris!

Stay tuned for more “Style Stealer” action!

SS15 COLOR PALETTE “TEAL & RUST “

Image

We are now on the third out of Four series of color charts for spring/summer 2015 and  you can start to see where darker shades are starting to go.
The three most dominant colours are the teal blue’s in this chart but they are all in different “cast” from each other. The casts of the colours are divided into the major three mixing colours: yellow, red, blue and grey. It indicates that if a blue is “yellow casted” it will have more green character and fall under the “teal” family of blues, and so will the grey casted if they are light enough to change color without turning to dark and then fall under “saturated” hues.
The grey pantone plays a big part as a “blue” casted grey and a “shade” (a no-colour) in layering pieces and in a lot of stripes. But since grey is a pretty “safe” shade it will be seen mostly in solids.
The red’s and brown’s in this family are the “warm” colours of the chart and they are both yellow casted. These will become essential for this season in a lot of embellishments and embroideries and will most definitely make great prints. We have already seen some amazing pieces on the runways to inspire us for our spring vacations, events and weddings for the summer months!
Enjoy our third direction for spring!

The earthy rusty tones in this chart are emphasised in fabrics like plush velvets, silk, chiffon  and linens for this season. There are several shades of rusty and plum reds and some are presented in iridescent fabrics, however I firmly believe we will see this combination of reds in dramatic prints and layers this season.

SS15 PASTEL ACCENT COLORS

Image

Welcome to the second part of the mini-series of our color chart!
This selection is a continuation of the previous chart we made with dreamy pastels and foggy shades with some important accent hues.
The lilac’s and baby blue’s will likely been seen with the yellows and golds thus emphasis is mainly on the 70’s look this season. The grey-casted mint green has been seen both in print and solids in this seasons resort collections and will have a great impact on the summer and transition months as well.
Another important element in this chart, is the gold hues we will likely be seeing a lot of this spring. You could already see tendencies of gold in some resort collections and previous fall couture pieces in shimmery platinums and lame’ threads to inspire the next coming collection.
We are looking forward to seeing how this trend will transpire into the streets of LA when we hit the warmer months.

THE COMEBACK OF GEMMA WARD

Image

I used to look up to a handful of models growing up, and one of the most frequently watched was Gemma Ward. Between 2004 and 2008 she was everywhere. Not one Prada, Valentino, Versace, Wang or Balenciaga show was put on without her opening it! And now, she is back in the game after taking a well-deserved break spending time with her boyfriend and having a baby back in her home land of Australia.
The first reason for Gemma’s break from modelling (which was the topic of conversation in every fashion blog) was to focus more on acting, which later lead to a break from the industry all together after the tragic death of her ex boyfriend Heath Ledger.
However, Gemma has recharged and is making a spectacular comeback by opening the Prada SS15 show during Milan FW and she is already gracing the December issue of Vogue Australia.
We are absolutely thrilled to see her back on the runway and we know that we will see so much more of her in the new year.
Go Gemma!
