What did Coco do?

Let’s forget Karl for just a second and reminisce about the original, insanely intuitive Gabrielle Chanel or if you prefer – Coco Chanel. Now we all understand that this inspirational designer went beyond others of her time, making women’s fashion that radiated femininity opposing against the strong demand of the common uncomfortable attire, a frequent being that of tight corsets. But how did she do this? What were the specific elements that combined to give Gabrielle such a prodigious reputation in fashion?

Using Jersey

This fabric was viewed as the main for men’s underwear and nothing else. Coco decided that jersey would be suitable for her creations due to its low cost compared to alternative substances that had suddenly risen in price after the war. Daringly, Chanel was the first designer to involve jersey in her creations stating that it had a quality finish and an exceptional drapery. In addition, the fabric suited Chanel’s influence of straightforward and convenient menswear making it a perfect match for her ideas.

Inventing the Little Black Dress

Everyone has one, it’s that noted classic yet do you know that Chanel is the women to thank? Previously, black was the dull, unnoticeable shade viewed as a principle look for only funerals and the grief of widows. Gabrielle discovered the hues secretive aspect and came with the ever valued belief of it being a major contribution for fashion. To be honest, I cannot imagine a world without it. Dominant reds, greens and sharp blues were referenced to making Coco “feel ill” later on she quoted “these Women, I’m bloody well going to dress them in black!” Noticed by Vogue, they first introduced Gabrielle’s time-honoured black masterpiece in a 1926 issue spreading word of the commodity to a larger amount of fashion enthusiasts which is still growing today.

Labelling Perfume

Back then, scents were a mixture of completely natural aspects focused on floral aromas unlike the artificial perks involved nowadays. 1921 was the year Coco released her favoured perfume, possibly the most acknowledged of scents today, Chanel No.5 after the instance of it being the 5th perfume tested. Yes, Paul Poiret recently launched his own scent earlier in the year however there was an absence of his name. Gabrielle was of course intelligent enough to be the first of brands to officially have their name placed on the bottle. By doing this, people recognised the scent and knew it was Chanel no.5. Famously a particular lover was Marilyn Monroe repeatedly noting the scent during interviews “I said Chanel No 5 because it’s the truth.”

Releasing Extravagant Jewellery

Chanel is all about the elegance and high-class of the wearers so it is no surprise that Gabrielle was one of the first to produce costume jewellery in her collections. Likewise to before, Paul Poiret was the first nevertheless Coco’s range constituted of flamboyant white pearls placed besides each other, the reason why you have that treasured pearl necklace in your jewellery box. She adored the idea of exaggerated gems contrasting with her minimalistic and sophisticated apparel. Moreover, the combination of speculating both fake and legitimate in one look.

Having Tanned Skin

Surely, Gabrielle wasn’t the original copy of those orange faced stags you see on a night out; she was the opener of healthy, sun-kissed skin. This greatly rebelled against the standard appearance of pale faced complexions resembling porcelain dolls by the adding of bright blusher and rouge lips. She caught hold of the present man’s thoughts of an idealistic women being as alike to paintings as possible. Coincidently, Coco caught a beautiful tan amid her cruise holiday along the French Riviera. After arriving home, her peers exceedingly desired for the same coloured skin furthermore passing the fascination to other members of public enough to make it a trend all around the world as well as an ongoing accessory for years to come.  Even though the expression is generally viewed as being cheap when by the use of fake tan, formerly it gave out a reputation of prosperity and refinement.

Females Wearing Trousers 

Especially amongst the time of war, women working in factories would usually custom that of a pair of trousers for efficiency and health and safety reasons though not prior to Coco did the forms of attire become a general clothing item to females. It was when Gabrielle became anxious about displaying her figure to men precedent to having to wear a swimsuit that she refused and instead astounded people with walking out in a pair of sailors pants, this occurred at the society beach resort in Deauville (been there, just saying). Similar to how those of us in the Alexa Chung fandom attempt (and tremendously fail) to manipulate her style, Gabrielle’s fans did the same. Despite the women’s wearing of the clothing, she ensued to proclaim “I came up with them by modesty. From this usage to it becoming fashion, having 70% of women wearing trousers at evening dinner is quite sad.” I thoroughly disagree with her.

The Fashion-Changing Chanel Suit

The Chanel suit was the pinnacle of Coco’s clothing creations; it was the first of its kind. Recommended by major fashion icons consisting of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy (worn on the day of her husband’s assassination) and Grace Kelly, the garment was trimmed with braid, had fitted sleeves, no collar and metallic embellished buttons. Additionally, the boxer jacket was combined with a sophisticated slim-line skirt emphasising that typical aristocratic Chanel women.

Warby Parker’s Limited Edition Corner Capsuel Collection makes Contacts a thing of the Past

Now Warby Parker is a brand whose concept, those of us with an average person’s budget can all thank. They saw the growing possibilities of the sunglasses industry and having experienced a college student budget, created Warby Parker. Both sunglasses and optical wear are available in store and they now have concessions in major American locations such as New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta, their success is expanding by the day. Their other focus is charity work, they have partnerships with non-profit organisations, one being Vision-Spring, which assures them that a less fortunate person in need of optical eye wear will receive a free pair of optical glasses for every pair of Warby Parker glasses that are purchased.

Amidst their limited edition Corner Capsuel Collection, there are 5 new styles for both eyeglasses and sunglasses fitting any wearer’s preference. Uncover your inner Hepburn with the seductive leopard print cat-eyes or reminisce about the seventies with some transparent box lens eyeglasses. What’s more, the label has successfully added two contemporary hues, Rhubarb and Quartz. Incorporated with Parker’s professionally polished eye-wear, the distinctive shades provide sparking up of your standard plain pair of glasses.

warbyparker_logo_w_ew_432-copy-2

I myself was immediately won over by the Teddy 285 Topdown Suns. An Emerald Lens rimmed with exotic leopard print upon quite an obscure style. Yet the elements combined together make a peculiar masterpiece, it isn’t like your typical pair of sunglasses where a designer takes them, uses one fixed colour then adds just one differentiating pattern or shade so they can place the word ‘exciting’ throughout its description. Alternatively, this model goes where others fear and I can assuredly affirm that risk as being an ultimate triumph.

Another positive feature is the collection’s reoccurring theme of British styles. To start with, some have that mahogany look; a style one would most commonly associate with a man carrying a satchel in chinos. It’s that business sense, moreover sophistication. You are able to wear these to work without appearing as overdone however they still act as a stylish accessory. Forget those only-child-with-glasses days and finally be satisfied with that identification. Who needs contact lenses when we have Warby Parker? There is no doubt that the attire will be noticed amongst a crowd.

Forwarding on to pairings, cat eyes look great with suits because you’re mixing both the masculinity of a blazer and trousers with the femininity of the all-important point upon the glasses. Never the less, use modernistic colours such as solid blues, blacks, whites and silvers to amplify the contrast between Hollywood vintage and the 21st century, for this look use the Warby Parker Goodney 100 Angel Suns. Secondly, let’s discuss the Hutton Topdowns for men. Appearing as a narrower though protracted form, these are suited for those with oval shaped faces who desire for them to look a meagre amount larger. By the small, square shaped rims, this style will sharpen the eyes whilst elongating the face providing a more muscular presence which is a goal most men strive for.

FANS_MENS_2_2x

Alternatively to the Hutton Topdowns, the collection includes a quirky pair called Topper Topdowns. This has a combination of the classic almond brown with sparks of white that emphasise the glass’ tremendous glow. These glasses correspond to that of Ray Ban’s tortoise shell acetate products however they are a lot cheaper, giving out that they look remarkably prodigious over other models without a lack of sensibility.

‘The Corner Collection gets its name from our seasonal preoccupation with silhouettes and angles. This time around, we’re experimenting with traditional shapes; think crisp keyhole bridges, sloping brow lines, sharp temples, and straight-edged brow bars in a handsome mix of horn-inspired acetate and stainless steel.’

The New Corner Capsuel Collection matches Warby Parker’s creation process combining the unique inspiration of global features with hand designed quality pair of glasses. In addition, their material is always the best quality ranging from premium Japanese titanium to custom single-sheet cellulose acetate all manufactured its own family-run factory.

Overall this Corner Capsule Collection bravely explores like no other brand. It captures new trends, combining patterns and shades in a group of exclusive eye-wear that is the answer to all our prayers. Their limited edition collection would make the perfect photo base for Instagram, they are the styles you see on a popular fashion blogger’s feed, and thus they are a clear portrayal of futuristic trends with a touch of the trendy vintage past.

MFW more like MFM

  Marni recently launched a new collection involving a few feminine and floral printed garments contrasting to the alternative plain apparel that it was released with. Despite this, we saw the Marni’s fluorescent apparel on their s/s 15 catwalk when dominant Victorian prints were presented with tribal-like exotic layers of matching necklaces. The Marni Flower Market was definitely expected. Bundles of herbs arranged in leather Marni bag whilst the violet and pale roses provided that bit of colour needed. 

Marni-Flower-Market_uniquestyleplatform

Everyone knows that Milan Fashion Week isn’t just about catwalks and perfect street style images but it’s also about the designers promoting themselves through other forms. On Saturday, the Rotonda della Besana was the lucky location to host the pop-up Marni flower stall showing groups of appealing produce and enticing blossoms. Marni wanted to convey their true Italian heritage through the limited edition Marni vases, aprons and pots holding the contents, however the pin-point of the occasion was its alluring aromas depicting Marni’s blossomy perfumes.

Carolina Castiglioni, Marni’s creative director arranged the event. Seen keeping with the theme, she attired a dress emblazoned with patterned leafs that was included in the preceding Marni catwalk. Later on, Carolina proudly directed friends and family around the netted paradise informing them about the sweet blossoms and delicate crops. Never mind the aprons, vases and pots, some of us would be pleased with a piece of the kale coloured Marni paper that enclosed some products as if they were some greasy takeaway chips cloaked in The Daily Mail’s pages. The Marni goddess told the press that she enjoys filling her home’s courtyard and terrace with plants and herbs; I’d share the same view if I had my own mansion as-well. Additionally, Carolina stated her hope to provide the cities children with a unique experience as well as mentioning the inspiration coming from that of her own passion for growing produce.

Aesthetics were certainly a significant feature having energetic coil dragonflies and insects hanging from the ceiling attracted to the scene as much as the spectators were. One cursory Italian pronounced in a strong accent “you’re a legend” to Carolina as she swiftly purchased numerous blooms grinning like a child in a sweet shop. A benefit of this wonder is the towering sculptures of wired mannequins perked with rainbow skirts hand-crafted by Columbian artisans of which a majority of the proceedings are given to children’s charities, an example being that of the charity Vimala.

Every part of the show was considerably lively just a typical local florist. Supermodel Coco Brandolini d’Adda casually pulled outside on her bike escorting her two children in meanwhile alternative model, Shala Monroque concentrated on crafting hued necklaces of recycled materials based around the brand’s own wacky jewellery. Unfortunately, the herds of travellers were disappointed when they realised they couldn’t take home the intended amount of merchandise due to their limiting baggage allowances.

Likewise to Marni, Burberry has surprised catwalk attendants with their latest spring/summer 2015 catwalk with a completely different theme of colour than usual. Pastel pinks and dominant yellows along with denim jackets. A stark contrast when compared to the brand’s statement masculine tartans and tedious beige, whites and blacks. No need to worry though because they ensued with the country theme throughout the compelling maxi-coats imprinted with elegant images of nature, for instance bees, the specific coat Suki Waterhouse wore upon the runway show.

Let’s not all try and convince ourselves into believing that floral is one of the major trends this summer because it is not at all. Times when floral came in was back in 2011, the year when Rodarte gave models angelic dresses overlaid with roses not so long after the women’s faces had been covered in talcum powder like they had just taken part in that game where you search for the sweet in a heap of self-rising flour. Other designers that year incorporated blossoms into their runways: Vivienne Westwood, Paul and Joe and Rochas.

Piercing – Love it or Hate it?

I remember being a galvanic 7 year old, gazing at the ear lobe of a teenager longing for the day when I could finally accustom a piercing just like her. For years my parents had gone through infinite mithering of “can I have my ears pierced please” “when your 18” they would say every. Single. Time. But it wasn’t until my friends began joining the club, one by one until it became a need. Back then I didn’t view it as a form of fashion, I viewed it as an aid of becoming ‘cool’, if you had a piercing, your level on my cool-o-meter would instantly be increased. Then finally, on my 11th birthday, feeling like the last one of my friend-ship group to experience it, I had the puncher placed through the skin. Prior to entering the local hair-dressers, I was secretly nervous as hell after years of my own pierce-less father disputing the process “why would anyone want a gun shot through their ear” I was actually here, and it was not a gun, thanks for the ghastly imaginings of that situation dad. Overall, the enduring pain was more like a friendly pinch and it was over in a jiffy. 

Rodarte

Whether it is the prevalent ear lobe or the contentious genital area, locations of piercings are becoming obscurer by the second. A vast majority of the female population have one yet vibrant Brazilian, Elaine Davidson owns the greatest amount at an astonishing 7,000 piercings. Included in Rodarte’s recent New York Fashion Week catwalk, Kate Mulleavy and Laura Mulleavy startled the show attenders with a full model force consisting of brows capped of metal rings (they were glued on), this took back the latest craze of resolute eye-brows. Furthermore, a less courageous presentation of piercings occurred back in 2012 when Chanel as well as Givenchy sent out there collections accompanied by numerous gems surrounding the mouth and beautiful nose rings connected to the lobes giving a definite reminiscence of the body-hole starters back in ancient Persia from the Persepolis. Many people believe Karl’s inspiration for his immense involvement of piercings was after he viewed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. A book turned film featuring that of ring filled goth Lisbeth Salander in fact the actress who plays the murky character, Rooney Mara, admitted to receiving a nipple piercing just for the result of gaining the particular part: “it just felt like a good one to get – a necessary one to get.”

Mentioned in the bible, piercings are of tremendous significance to human-kinds culture as Jacobs is declared to have stolen his families and idols earrings then proceeded to have buried the jewellery (Genesis 35:4). Regarding physical evidence, archaeologists have uncovered the body of a 5,300 year old ear-pierced mummy with holes of an audacious 7-11 mm diameter, a little larger than your almost 0.5 mm standard ear lobe hole. Alternative earring eras dwell on that of the Pacific North-western Americans, the Tlingits in which attiring earrings was only undertook by those of a prodigious prosperity unlike the present day where hefty sleeper earrings are genuinely stereo-typed under ‘chav’. Additionally, we had the ancient Greeks with god shaped ear pieces as well as the ancient Romans decorated with the most delicate of gemstones costing a price of which only the most up-scale of people could afford. Clearly, piercings have been the mode for a lengthy amount of time nonetheless this did fall subsequent to World War I when shock, horror, people developed a pre-eminent enthusiasm for clip-on earrings, never-again! Yes, 60’s fashion icon Twiggy did accustom the items usually found in the contents of a girl’s princess costume set, but for now I’ll give it a miss!

Previously, being in possession of a piercing placed other than your ear lobe was an immense put-off; anyone with a lip ring was a definite insurrection whereas having that of a septum piercing (the one resembling a cow’s nose ring) was only for exotic native tribes. Whereas nowadays you are never less than a meagre 10 foot away from someone with a body-piercing. Particularly, I have noticed an upsurge in nose-piercings amidst the fellow students of my high-school, constantly being told to pull the jewel out by teachers these once Indian culture traditions are now becoming the norm throughout British young-people. I have no opposition towards this piercing situation but know that Indians have it completed due to the belief of it being a nostril of female reproductive organs therefore by piercing this specific place; discomfort can be declined for the duration of menstruation and labour. Celebrities such as the contradictory Miley Cyrus have been known to wear a nose ring now-and-again. You never know, this might be a part of her fascinating dirty-hippy look! 

Tattoo faced Desia Khond abbey lee ear piercings

Inspired by Harry Potter’s Launa actress, Evanna Lynch anyone with a nose ring should try pairing it with grunge themed clothing reflecting that hipster feel, meaning cosy cardigans with the strings intentionally hanging out, vintage maxi skirts and chunky leather belts for dimension. Likewise to Evanna, I would recommend accessorising with a substantial necklace that predominant to the garment, not only does this convey confidence but it also provides emphasis towards the all-important nose ring. All in all, the greatest advantage of dressing all flower-power is the aspect of reusing clothes that would usually be given to a charity shop or just non hesitantly dumped into your black bin, forgotten about forever. Focusing on the extra jewellery, I’d use materials that are often having the outlook of being ‘organic’, for instance: wood and feathers, influenced by Armani’s wooden badged summer collection in 2013.

Shrimps – My Favourite Supplier of the Furry Line Coat

Subsequent to purchasing British Vogue in February, I took a read only to come to the considerable discovery of a new clothing brand featured called ‘Shrimps’. Now one may have noticed the consistency of faux fur coats renovated with the essence of two horizontal lines in a disparate colour, but this was the first situation in which I witnessed the quirky form of jacket. At first, I found the line terribly obscure and as if I had seen that of a fancy dress costume. As if the jacket was another one of those experimental fashion trends that had hit a major crisis. However the days went on and so did my speculating of fashion blogs and magazine articles. Anna Wintour, Laura Bailey, the coat was a constant feature in the media so much so that I have come to thoroughly adore the once negatively but now positively eccentric outerwear.

Firstly let us discuss faux fur, it’s similar to Marmite, you either love it or you hate it. Me personally, I’m a self-confessed convert, when I disagreed with the material, it was extremely tacky and appeared cheap whereas now, being a lover, I believe that since the popularity of ugly wedged sandals have been proven to provide edge to an exceedingly pretty outfit, faux can do the same. It’s the texture. Who wants the meagre width of a straight forward maxi-skirt and crop combo when you can amp-it-up with a fuzzy overthrow, faux fur gives you the opportunity of attiring a reassuring blanket but out of bed. In addition, the frizzier, the better! Not your hair, the fur meaning that despite the many uses you get out of the garment, no bother is included when it begins to develop, this material is beyond robust!

fade_1 Street Style at London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2014, Britain - 15 Feb 2014

Regarding catwalk labels, Fendi has recently launched a new line consisting of non-other than a set of charms named ‘Bag Bugs’. Spruced with fox, mink and rabbit fur, dainty eyes and a leather tag, the pieces are undeniably a newcomer to fashion. And who knows? Maybe a larger amount of successful designers will release similar products. Though, there is evidently an adverse disadvantage that using real animal fur brings which alternatively creates extra customers for the faux-fur clothing and accessories Shrimps holds. Being one on the higher-end of the scale, a shrimps coat typically costs £595, this may sound practically unaffordable but it doesn’t reach the mammoth Moncler Gamme Rouge type at £1000. One of the most appealing features of this label is the fact that it is one of those shops that offers couture-like clothing to the public at relatively half the price. 

P00112559--STANDARD

Shrimps are another aid of founding incredible new designers to come out of there shell and develop into well-known names. In this case, the label’s designer is Hannah Weiland, set in London; she attended the well-renowned London College of Fashion leaving with a diploma in textile design. Furthermore Hannah became intrigued by 60’s fashion and wanted to in-corporate this into her creations, quoting that the clothing aimed to be “sweet, fun and welcoming.” This was clearly achieved by the loud statement colours used within the collection. Moreover inspiration is said to have mainly come from contemporary art and childish shades, textures and prints. Explaining the peculiar outlook my fascination for Shrimps began with. 

023cc6bd1f6f6306ed729ebd5353f5f0 

These coats use lively colours that emphasise primary school days, shades that are an endless enjoyment juxtaposing that of the usual British brand’s uses of bright reds, dull navy and basic white, practically an ocean of assortment suited to fit every personality and character. Forwarding on, Shrimp’s offers a line of plush key-rings similar to that of Fendi’s set but with the superior advantage of being animal friendly. So could shabby be the new pricey? With numerous loads of long-haired apparel expecting to be included in couture shows, this idea is at a high possibility. On top of this, we too have the current New York, Paris, Milan, Berlin and London fashion weeks occurring carrying assumptions of the immediately prior winter trends that must contain the feature of observing warmth.

When topic is on British designers, Vivienne Westwood can occasionally come as a bore to teenagers my age and Burberry only uses quite tedious colours that give out an impression of Britain being stationed around country-life. Withal, when I identified Shrimp, my entire view on British fashion came to a halt. Above all, the colours are unlike other British labels, not revolved around the national flag alike to that of Cath Kidston or not joker-style certain to Alexandra Mcqueen. The lines specifics of vintage pastel pink colours, the muggy combination of orange and black, the ambiguous placement of shapes, it all comes down to an extensive diversity of perspectives meaning that no matter what the person, Shrimps has a coat for them.
