Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016 Best Street Style Looks

Fashion

The Paris Fashion Week spring 2016 has also been edging close to an end and we have to say that we are going to miss all these awesome shows happening once they are fully done! We adore seeing all the latest from our favourite designers, catching up on the latest celebrity gossip, checking out the talents behind the Houses and really getting to know the up and coming budding designers who have the ability to rock our worlds with their creative minds. From New York to Milan, London to Paris, we have watched the styles happening and we have fallen in love with the street styles often more than the actual trends displayed on the runways. When it comes to the Paris Fashion Week spring 2016 street style, we knew that we would be expecting something crazier, in line with the totally French look and that is exactly what we got.

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style Looks

The gods of fashion were good to us and the first three days have been stellar in terms of the looks, the bohemian and otherwise that take over the sidewalks and everything about it. It may be October already but Paris is a sunny city, albeit the cool winds have set in. Most all have opted to add layers to their ensembles as they attend the shows, though some still think we are in the throes of summer it seems.

It is the cashmere coat that grabs our attention for it is perfect for the autumn crisp air. They come in wraparound styles, belted at the waist, in cape coat designs with the billowing sleeves and the gorgeous double buttoned style, matched up with laced up knee high boots. They come in ensembles of high waist side button trousers and ruffled white shirts, looks reminiscent of old Europe, though there are those who switch up the cashmere with a nice drench that falls to below the knees.

Some of the looks we see on the streets include corded knit sweaters, both short and in the guise of dresses. We see pleated skirts that are either of tougher material or gauzy and fluttering in the wind, falling higher against the knees or lower to wrap around the calves. We see gorgeous boyish looks with ties to amplify the professional attire, while prints in animal and floral make their way into skirts and tops in order to add a burst of color to often otherwise dark outfits. We are particularly fond of the snakeskin and the leopard, while the more subtle flowery appeal on pants and skirts is much more fitting to our tastes.

Long sleeved bodysuits come into play as well, while we are generally in love with the high waists on everything from denim to skinny pants. It is the ‘70s that come out to play with the suede and the cowgirl shirts, while we see touches of traditional Japanese looks peeking through here and there. Large rounded sunglasses and pretty little handled handbags appear on the streets with gusto, while wacky looking clutches are a common enough sight. Add fringe to everything from handbags to the clothing and you have the Paris Street looks captured to the tee.

The ‘70s reigned stronger here on the Paris streets than anywhere else to date. This included leather miniskirts and leather bomber jackets. It included suede pants and suede sweaters. There were lace up boots and nude colored stiletto sandals. We saw a whole lot of fringe as well on the clutches and the jackets, while furry additions to the bags themselves caught our attention. We have rounded sunglasses as well as cat eyes, but it was the high waist denim that did us in. Between the cashmere coats and corded knit sweaters, we were in for a treat. Add a few ponchos here and there, suede skirts and culottes appearing with ankle boots and we have ourselves one of the better more fashionable street style collections yet!

Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Fashion

Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga spring/summer 2016 ready-to-wear collectionwas, quite literally, void of all color. In Wang’s final runway show for the house, he chose to put the focus directly on the silhouettes. The house has a tendency toward a muted color palette, but a collection of white garments and nothing more took things to an interesting new perspective for the runway.

Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Some designers want to go out with a bang for their final show for a house, but Alexander Wang took a more subtle approach by leaving the drama out. By diminishing the color palette, the designer has quite possibly made a larger impact than what an explosion of color with over-the-top silhouettes could have ever accomplished.

With lingerie inspired garments appearing as a trend for this coming spring/summer, Alexander Wang definitely showed a mastery of the concept. He even played with a “pajamas” vibe to up the ante. The single simple color made it easier to show the intricate (and personal) details of each garment and model.

His tea-length dress with a ruched bodice and intricate line detailing took the appearance of lingerie, or a slip, while his long, loose pants with thin, checkerboard pinstripes resembled the classic pajama pants. Any way you look at it, the Balenciaga spring 2016 collection was all about taking what women wear in their boudoir and translating it to the runway, and inevitably streetwear.

It is almost as if Alexander Wang took the best aspects of the two genres and mashed them together in perfect harmony. The looks, although mimicking lingerie, were nowhere near “too sexy,” but were instead balanced by an edge, so the modern woman can look at these pieces on the runway and see herself in them. The garments had a comfortable feeling as they walked down the runway, with some being a slinkier, satiny comfort and others being loose or flowing.

A mesh robe that hung around the model was an interesting piece. The garment was reminiscent of a sleepwear robe, while giving a nod to spring/summer, more specifically, swimming. While not being a glaring point of reference, the whole look gave the beach or poolside vibe, with its airy fabric, seeming to be a cross between the lingerie and swimwear.

Each model was styled and accessorized in a mixture of street-and-sleepwear chic. Not all models were adorned with jewelry, but those who were sported long, chunky pieces that contrasted the outfits. Large, gold, square necklaces were one of the most common pieces of jewelry worn on the runway, and proved to be an interesting pop of adornment.

Each model was featured with a pair of floral slippers, clearly falling on the side of housewear rather than being for the streets. The jewelry brought in the designer’s urban streetwear aesthetic, and it paired nicely with the lounging, sleepy vibe the basis of the clothes portrayed.

While The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Going Back to Cali” was the perfect song chosen to accompany the show, the designer also asked his best friends – Bella Heathcote, Riley Keogh, Zoë Kravitz – to walk for his final Balenciaga show, which added diversity to the scene as far as the models’ body shapes and sizes go.

Alexender Wang took Balenciaga and put his stamp on the collections he presented in his time with the house, taking the brand on a tangent that didn’t quite seem to fit their past aesthetics. The designer had a lot to offer as far as incorporating trends in ways others couldn’t. It’s currently up in the air as to what is on the agenda for the house next, and where they will be for the next season.

Kate Moss As an Interior Designer?

Fashion

Since being discovered at the age of 14 while waiting at JFK Airport, in New York, Kate Moss has quickly begun her climb to success, becoming one of the most famous top-models of our times and a real style icon inspiring women from around the world. We all have been intrigued by her heroin chic look, and we all remember how she used to trash hotel’s rooms while dating her former boyfriend Johnny Depp. Despite her problems with drug-addiction and with some other tumultuous exes, no one has ever doubted Moss’ passion for clothes, which led her to design some best-selling collections for Topshop – one of the most famous fast-fashion chains. To our major surprise, Kate Moss has also recently added ‘interior designer’ to her already impressive Curriculum Vitae, after collaborating with The Lakes by Yoo – the fine luxury estate agency founded by designer Philippe Starck and property entrepreneur John Hitchcox. Situated in the Cotswolds, UK, Yoo’s waterside homes are set in hundreds of acres of idyllic English countryside, and Kate Moss could not pass up the chance to collaborate with these two artistic minds.

Kate Moss Interior Designer: Barnhouse

Kate Moss thus spent the last 6 months standing over the interior design of theBarnhouse, a new luxury home located in the Cotswolds, built from green oak and local stone, and inspired by agricultural style buildings. With five bedrooms, a swimming pool and an acre of land, the Barnhouse is in the middle of a silver birch wood, which can be admired from its floor-to-ceiling windows. Moss, who owns a country retreat in Oxfordshire, has never made a secret of her love for the English countryside, and wanted us to see what happens when she combines her glam-rock style with a traditional rural-looking building.

Moss’ participation with this project brought Twenties, Sixties and Seventies influences to the mansion, which can be easily spotted respectively thanks to the velvet sofas, the black-and-white guest rooms with pink curtains, the ethnic Peruvian bed covers and the four-poster bed created by artisan David Haddock, who has also previously designed Kate’s personal dressing room at her London home. Artworks by Damien Hirst, one of the most prominent members of the artistic collective known as YBAs – Young British Artists – give Barnhouse some of the best ‘90s vibes available, while framed photos of Bob Dylan, Sid Vicious and Elvis Presley will remind its future buyer of Moss’ close relationship with the wild and passionate Rock ‘n’ Roll lifestyle. Moreover, Chris Levin’s artworks give Barnhouse an ironic pop culture turn and manifest Moss’ enthusiasm for contemporary photography, also shown through some framed pictures of Kate Moss herself (including some of her notorious topless photos) that at the same time self-explain the new-born interior designer’s philosophy, which may be described as a mash-up of ‘all the cool things ever happened since the XX century-including me, of course’.

All these pop-culture references, along with the main Twenties, Sixties and Seventies influences, make a great contrast with the outdoors and indoors earthy-colors, perfectly juxtaposing a peaceful nature setting with some more comfortable and modern interiors. Just in case you were wondering and had a few million pounds to spend for a second house, Barnhouse designed by Kate Moss is on the market for £ 2.5 million, and is surely going to be worth more in the future! As for us (A.K.A those who cannot afford such a mansion but totally like Kate Moss), well, we just have to wait for her next move!

Chanel Rouge Noir Absolument Holiday 2015 Makeup Collection

Fashion

We normally very much love Chanel and all the House represents as it is one of the biggest and best known in the world. What we don’t love is the latest news that Kristen Steward appears in the latest Chanel ad video all swaddled in haute couture. We adore Karl Lagerfeld’s vision, but we never could have imagined Stewart to be of the right material to do such a shoot. That said, we are happy that she is not also the face of the latest in holiday cosmetics collections released by Chanel that we are simply dying to get our hands on.

Sportmax Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

Fashion

Thanks to its clean lines and dynamic cuts, Sportmax has always been capable of enhancing the beauty and femininity of a body of every shape, while it’s fashions are uniquely designed for cosmopolitan and self-confident women. Since 1969, deconstructed tops and flared trench coats have been the house’s hallmark, and we may say Sportmax is one of the best lower-priced lines (with high-quality designs) available in the fashion industry. Furthermore, since the mid-Seventies to the end of the Eighties, Sportmax has developed a special trendsetter role within the Max Mara Group, opening its doors to all those changes that were occurring within the society (and fashion) in those years. Therefore, while its big sisterMax Mara has always had a more elegant appeal, Sportmax has always enjoyed playing with its unconventional free spirit, which is exactly what we see in the latest Sportmax spring/summer 2016 collection.

Sportmax Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Due to its dynamic and urban nature, Sportmax’s collections show a strong personality, which above all is a reflection of society. Such changes are expressed in the latest collection through an innovative retro-futuristic theme, which mixes elements from the Sixties with deconstructed elements of a not-so-distant future. Combining these two different eras into various complete looks, Sportmax manages to travel back in time, exploring themes of tension between past and future, consequently giving us a taste of want fashion is going to be in the next few years.

At the same time, for this collection, Sportmax took great inspiration from the sea (like Max Mara and Pucci beforehand), taking the point of view of its urban bathers rather than its inhabitants. Not for nothing this collection’s main color is navy blue, here unconventionally combined with yellow and orange, whereas its main purpose is being indeed practical and ready-to-wear. From raincoats to buckle jumpers, every single piece of the line-up is meant to be worn daily, aiming at making you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin thanks to the perky A-line shapes and playful prints.

Graphically speaking, the Sportmax spring 2016 collection has everything you need for your near marine future, and enjoys playing with thin stripe patterns, fishnet prints and oval zip pouches, which directly take inspiration from the early-Sixties American Pop Art movement. From the Pop Art Movement Sportmax has also borrowed recurring elliptical patterns, used to adorn the long see-through white dresses, A-line white dresses and button-down white shirts.

Impeccable designs and tailoring have also been used for mannish button-down shirts as well as for long and fitted maxi dresses, here often revisited as long stretch dungarees. As for its trademarks, namely deconstructed tops and trench-coats, Sportmax has opted for some wide flared short trench-coats and a few oversized t-shirt dresses, adorned with wide buckles in the front.

Sleek fabrics and asymmetrical cuts have been respectively used for wide leg trousers, shirts and long dresses, while side slits and wide belts embellish medium-length skirts and short dresses. Sportmax’s triumph of life and colors has this year reached its peak, and may be seen a signal that fashion, like society, is currently going through a process of major (exciting) changes.
