First Monday of May means… the Met Gala. This year’s theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Let’s have a look at what the lucky ones came up with! Here’s my 15 best dressed.
Flora Miranda. Ever heard of her? No? Well, this post is about to change that. The talented designer contacted me a couple of months ago to introduce me her concept. And to be completely honest with you, it was a pleasant discovery for me too. So, who’s she? Let’s get to know each other 🙂
1. Flora Miranda was born in Austria.
2. When I asked her when she got her first taste for fashion, she said: “As a young teenager I participated in the Viennese fashion contest “Kids in Fashion” every year, with some drawings, and each year my drawings made it and the designs were realised by fashion students and were shown on a catwalk. However, that was just a little thing on the side because I was mainly occupied with painting. When I was 16 years old, I had the opportunity to do an internship at a Swiss sports company, where I was more fascinated by the team building and the way the company was built than by the technical drawings the fashion designers were spending their time on. When a year later I was given a book about Belgian fashion design I made my final decision. I remember thinking that what I wanted to do in painting I could bring to the body in 3D. In this book I saw a very artistic approach, an alternative view on beauty and gender. Seeing fashion as an art form and recognising that fashion is more than a technical drawing but rather coordinates various disciplines, I was very drawn to take this path.” Continue reading “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flora Miranda”
“En mai, fais ce qu’il te plaît… ”
Well, don’t mind if I do 🙂 All I want to do in May is to ditch my all-black outfits and rock some fun pieces: bright or light colours, flower prints (I know, that is so not groundbreaking), striped tees (you know how I love these),… It puts me in a good mood.
In these inspirations, you’ll find all of that and more worn by some of my favorite fashionistas: Alexandra Pereira, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Xenia VDW, and Julie Sariñana.
Week 1: May 1 – 6
I prepared for you a small shopping selection to rock one of the SS18 trends: Ice Cream Lady. The trend was seen in various shows: Tom Ford, Michael Lors, Hermès, Victoria Beckham, etc.
Belgian brands: Essentiel-Antwerp (blue dress, pink dress, yellow pants, pink pants), Xandres dress, Julia June (yellow dress, pink dress), Scapa (blue skirt, yellow skirt, blue dress) Continue reading “How To Wear the Spring-Summer 18 Trends? Pastel Edition”
In French, we say “En avril, ne te découvre pas d’un fil”. Basically, it means that we shouldn’t expect some summer weather in April just yet. However, I’m feeling quite optimistic, I decided to pick some very sunny-weather appropriate fashion inspiration. I’m sure you won’t hold it against me. Besides, I put together outfits from – among others – some of my (our?) favourite fashionistas: Alexandra Pereira (Lovely Pepa), Julie Sariñana (Sincerely Jules) and Miranda Kerr. Honestly, how can we resist?
