Bomber addiction: just can’t get enough!

It’s official: the bomber is (re) living its moment of glory. This is demonstrated by the male and female Fall Winter 2016/2017 fashion shows, but also by bloggers, top models and influencers, the street style’s queens.

But which are the “must have” models? Here are our fashion tips:

There is the classic varcity, sporty and typical for preppy boy style reminiscent of the college’s and American teams’ uniforms with striped and contrasting cuffs and collar, patches and lettering as seen in Forte Couture collection.

There is the traditional aviator deluxe version, inspired by the overseas pilots with over fits in military green tones (N21).

There are those evening stiles in elegant and feminine fabrics like velvet (Marcelo Burlon) or silk and with sparkling applications (Nightmarket).

Floral prints are more actual than ever: already seen on spring models, we can find them in jacquard version on a dark background as proposed by MSGM for Fall Winter.

The most glam outfits choose golden tones, laminates or sequined fabrics, for an Eighties effect as seen at Aviu and Shirtaporter.

For the underground style’s lovers the right bomber to choose are blacks or colored, in technical fabrics with big zip, mixed with skinny jeans and backpack for a “fake casual street style” as seen on the catwalks of Givenchy.

The tartan pattern proposed by Route Des Garden, convert the the bomber in a passe-partout jacket, easy to wear 24/24, for a modern dandy style.

For those who like to enjoy a sophisticated look even when wearing jeans and a sporty jacket, the exotic details that enrich the Covert’s bomber are perfect.

The bouclé wool MSGM bomber replace the blazer and it’s perfect for both sporty and sophisticated outfits .

Anya Hindmarch sees the world translated into pixels: the Pixel Ebury has become a must have as well as the Tennis sneakers in silver with the print ‘Space Invaders’.

We step into this season with sneakers again, like those of Giuseppe Zanotti in white or black paint, or python print for Devon model.

And for those who prefer heels? The classic lace décolleté Taormina by Dolce & Gabbana is dyed for the new season of bright colors like red and pink.

In the men’s collection the trendiest style is the bomber! Givenchy’s iconic colors, red, black and white tinge the coolest jacket of the season. Off White prefers red, with big prints.

The Shoes to Wear Now, according to Spring Summer 2016 Trends

This is the perfect time to start building your spring wardrobe. So start thinking about which trends you want to partake in this season, and to help you along, we pulled out the key shoe trends from the runways you need to know!

Mexico Feeling. A huge trend even in clothing. Spring Summer 2016 is inspired to many cultures and re-elaborates traditional costumes with a modern, at times futuristic twist. Mixing clothes and accessories from different cultures becomes ultracool.  These sandals are ideal for a season that emphasizes color, texture and layering: colors, stones and studs, everything evokes the ethnic vibe. Valentino Garavani is one such designer who has capitalized on the trend and Giuseppe Zanotti has some comfortable espadrillas with colorful details.

Silver: We see a whole lot of silver appearing everywhere, from the clothing to the accessories and particularly the shoes. We see gorgeous flats at Charlotte Olympia, super high heels found at Kylie+Kendall, and silver keeps appearing at Michael Kors too.

Flatform: The flatform remains an important shape and you have a bit of elevation to the otherwise very flat looks. Both Dolce&Gabbana and Givenchy showed special love for the footwear style.

Pointy-toe Heels: For those who love stilettos, this trend is mighty lovely! It’s the sexy look that is made all the sexier with a slingback appeal. The pointed toe looks awesome with stilettos in total black as seen on Givenchy, or with delicate tones and stones as seen at Valentino.

Sparkle: Jewels decoration is always a good idea! For designers such as Gedebe adding a lot of sparkle can have a positive effect.  Glitter and sparkles you say? We have some added sparkle through beading at Dolce&Gabbana too, with sculptural heels.

Chain: A rather interesting trend: it’s as if the Goth and the punk have mixed and we see spectacular chained on heel combinations as seen at Givenchy, as well as on the flatter more casual Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers in a golden version.

White: This is the freshest and trendiest color of the season. If there’s one shoe silhouette that reigned supreme last year, it’s all-white sneakers. In fact, over the past few seasons, this trend cropped up on everyone from designers to It girls, thanks in part to the strategic relaunch of the Adidas Stan Smiths. We found white sneakers also at Tod’s and Givenchy.



Live your dreams! Wear Pajamas!

Surprisingly, pajama dressing has remained a constant in fashion’s revolving door of trends. Trend-wise, a few seasons ago and remains hurtling strong into the fashion firmament—with no sign of either slowing down or going back to bed.

Now, designers have taken the trend to a literal level for spring, with full pajama sets and robes at Diane Von Furstenberg, piped pajama shirts at Valentino, silk tunic kacket at Emilio Pucci, pretty nighttime chemises and trousers at 3.1 Phillip Lim , and little lace things at Givenchy.

And it looks as though the stars are early adopters of the comfy trend. They wear pajama set, dressing it up with sandals, or with sexy accessories for an evening look or in an head-to-toe prints mixing it with chic accessories so that no one will actually assume they just rolled out of bed.

You can wear pajamas as a suit, ton sur ton, or mixing a pajama trousers with contrasting  super-satiny tops and shirts.

If you’re worried about looking sloppy or frazzled, don’t be. Look to pretty much any street style archive! Wearing pajamas as clothes isn’t as much about invoking the whole I-woke-up-like-this ethos! It’s cool, cozy and casual and it will make you constantly thinking “Am I still dreaming”?

Shoulder bag
The shoulder bag is experiencing a new era: practical, trendy, it can be combined with both casual look if you choose it in day version as suggest Kenzo or Michael Kors, that for elegant outfits, if you prefer the most precious models like the leather Versus Versace one, or the jewel bag by Valentino.

The silver is one of the most seen shades on the latest catwalks, also as regards the bags. The most interesting are those proposed by 3.1 Philipp Lim, and Anya Hindmarch.

Colorful, bizarre, cheerful, eccentric, they downplay any look. Among the proposals are the Anya Hindmarch bags with stickers and smiley applied, Moschino crossbody cartoons printed bags, lego clutches by Les Petits Joueurs. The watchword is irony!

Squared Shape
The particularities are: amplitude, mean rigidity and a marked silhouette as seen in the handbags by Versus Versace, the Madison by Marc Jacobs or the Tracy by Salvatore Ferragamo.

Bags turn really small, almost like a wallet, like Charlotte Olympia clutch and the studded shoulder Valentino bag.

Versatile, suits from morning till night, for one Seventies style but chic. For the most classic girls in total black, blue or creamy white as Hogan wants, for the fashion-victims in pink, yellow or red as proposed by Moschino and Ferragamo. You can bring them on your shoulder, or on the arm.

Once upon a time the backpack was for high school. Today the fashion shows have made them a must-have! Backpacks this spring express different moods: sophisticated as the Givenchy Pandora one, urban and like that from Marc Jacobs, to the more ironic and colorful by Anya Hindmarch and Moschino.

Men’s Fashion Weeks: Fall Winter 16/17 Trends

The Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks have just concluded and we have seen the man as the protagonist of the upcoming Fall Winter 2016. This man was sometimes romantic, sometimes recalled military vibes.

We saw the romantic spirit on the runway of N°21, characterized by lace shirts and soft volumes, in colors of green and burgundy. The military theme is present in the collections of several designers: Thom Browne for Moncler Gamme Bleu focuses attention on camouflage, which is repeated endlessly with different cuts. Here we have down jackets, parkas, pants, gloves and balaclavas, all made in the same hypnotic fantasy: red, blue, white and gray.

Gray is the color of the background for Moncler Gamme Bleu and will be one of the main colors for the Fall Winter 16/17. It is in fact staged also by Dolce&Gabbana, who presented ponchos and knitted pieces in mélange gray. Valentino and Givenchy showed it in long tailored coats and the collection of Kenzo, though was distinguished for its colors, dedicated to this tone the central space.

Check fabrics are evergreen in menswear and we found them in their different variants: Salvatore Ferragamo tip onto the fabric Prince of Wales and pays homage to the art of Egon Schiele.

Finally there is the black, which plays a central role and with its rigor is able to highlight the cut like no other color can do. Givenchy, Marcelo Burlon County of Milan and Off-White opened their own collections with this color. Philipp Plein total black is the absolute protagonist: tuxedos with shoes studded studs, parkas and bomber jackets strictly blacks and models who tread the catwalk with skateboards in quilted leather and Swarovski.
