Couture Report Fall/Winter 2011


Chanel – Karl Lagerfeld brought us back to the forties with tightened waists and exaggerated hips all in classic Chanel fabrics. It felt like a couture show.

Chanel

Valentino – Velvet, silk and sheer where just some of the many fabrics used in Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli’s (design duo of Valentino) show. It felt very light and delicate, but at the same time it had a winter feel to it. Perfect for the Valentino customer.

Givenchy – White white and more white. Riccardo Tisci opted for light color and light fabrics for this couture collection. The top half of the garment was the detailed and delicate part using feathers and pearls to create a dramtic piece. The bottom half was light, airy and sheer. Beautiful, but I want to see something a little different next year.

Givenchy

Armani Privé – Does he ever get it wrong? This season, Giorgio Armani dedicated his collection to Japan. Using floral prints, vibrantly coloured sequins and hats by Philip Treacy, the whole collection tipped off perfect and pristine…..as usual.

Jean Paul Gaultier – These days people take couture too seriously. Apart from Jean Paul Gaultier of course. Fun, glamorous and crazy. They are three perfect words to describe JPG’s couture collection. It’s always nice to put the madness back into fashion.

Giambattista Valli – I was wondering how Mr. Valli would carry off his first ever couture collection. There was absolutely no disappointment with dresses flowing right down the runway in lipstick red, leopard print and  floral prints added to red carpet ready dresses. Bravo Valli!

Azzedine Alaia – With an EIGHT year break, Azzedine Alaia has come back to couture bigger and better. The collection was nothing but perfect with fitted wool coats and jackets and trimmed mohair dresses. That expalins wht the crowd gave the design genius a standing ovation. He deserved it.

LOVE Magazine Autumn/Winter 2011


I am absolutely in ‘LOVE’ with LOVE magazine’s Autumn/Winter cover. Model Nyasha Matonhodze ( who also star’s in Louis Vuitton’s Fall campaign) was photographed by the esteemed photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. I always look forward to every LOVE magazine issue due to their striking covers, like model Agyness Deyn dressed up as the queen, or Kate Moss and Lea T having a lesbian kiss. The covers have always managed to suprise me and this issue, which is out August 1st, certainly does not disapoint.

David Koma


New Designer Alert ! Born in Georgia, David Koma studied at Central St. Martins when he moved to London in 2003. His graduate collection included  metal tubes placed on dresses to create interesting shapes. He was noticed by Celebrities like Cheryl Cole who wore an outfit on the X Factor, showing the world his amazing talent. Since then Koma’s sexy and strong shaped dresses have landed photo shoots in Vogue and appeared on the red carpet many times worn by Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rhianna and Penelope Cruz. Now showing every season at London Fashion Week, the future looks bright for this rapidly growing brand.

Prada Fall/Winter 2011 Campaign


Miuccia has done it right, yet again. Here is the campaign shot by Steven Meisel, and like Louis Vuitton, Mrs. P has used up and coming models. Must be another trend, but I must say I love it. Say goodbye to all the supermodels for now, the new girls are in.
