Ready to Wear, Roberto Cavalli

ombre Ready to Wear, Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli proved romance isn’t only reserved for spring during his Autumn/Winter 2015-16  fashion show on February 28th. Stream the show at RobertoCavalli.com.

It’s dark, glitzy, striking, with a surprisingly poetic touch of 18th century ruffles, a little animal print thrown in for good measure and infused with overtones of contemporary Chinese sophistication. Models adorned in his clothing glided past a packed house of European and International celebrities keen to get the first glimpse of the stunning collection.

Among those in attendance were a number of celebs feelin’ the Cavalli fashion vibe, including English model Daisy Lowe in a Roberto Cavalli floor-length floral print gown, Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh in a bold Cavalli leopard print trench, actor Paolo Stella in a black Cavalli ensemble, English model Amber Le Bon in a Renaissance reminiscent dress and fashion designer and blogger Chiara Ferragni in a fun Cavalli fur coat and matching handbag that takes us back to 1999 in a way that can only be described as awesome.

Other highlights from the show include oversize gold buckles and “pagoda” buttons, wildly fringey motifs, a quick nod to military fashion, khaki ski parkas, glittering sequined evening wear, soft Ming vase inspired florals, flowing blouses, officer-style jackets that harken to Cavalli’s historical inspirations and black, black, black wherever the eye looks. Oh, and don’t forget the ombre!

Signature Style: Staples for Buy

It has been proven on countless occasions that the art of following trends, yet being yourself lies in the perfect combination of staples and trends, something that makes us feel up to date with the runways, but let’s us keep the control of our own style.

However, fashion is about being smart, and being smart means not spending thousands of dollars on things that you won’t be able to wear in 24 hours. While we’re all aware that we’re guilty of this crime, it is about time we made a list of things that are worth spending money on, worth wearing for an eternity and considering how we can develop feelings for fashion items – worth sleeping in.

1. The Black Blazer

black suit 421x632 Signature Style: Staples for Buy

The eye-candy we have here is the Emporio Armani Jacket in boiled wool, also known as ‘its Majesty: The Black Blazer”. Like Paris, the black blazer is always a good idea, meaning that it’s okay to splurge on this, knowing that you cannot go wrong with it, no matter how you combine it. With a pair of boyfriend jeans and statement sandals, to follow the latest trends, a black blazer is the staple in your appearance, giving you that air of ‘I didn’t even bother, yet I look so good, right?’

 2. White Blouse

white blouse Signature Style: Staples for Buy

After you’ve had some time admiring this creation, it’s time to get to know it. Anne Fontaine’s fitted Armantine works perfect when buttoned up for work and even more astonishing with a loose button for an evening drink. Goes perfectly well with the current brown bag and camel coat, but it is a charmingly plain white blouse, so you can pretty much wear it with everything, it looks beautiful in any combination.

3. The Classic Black Leather Pump

One of the best creations of the fashion industry, the classic black pump is the line between casual and dressed up. A combination of jeans, a coat and a statement top, goes from casual if worn with Converse, to incredibly chic when worn with these Rupert Sanderson Divas, for example. Yes, definitely worth their price as they can effortlessly rocket your style from random to royal.

4. The Chanel Bag

This staple doesn’t even need a special introduction. It just stands there, iconic and perfect, easily combined with every other staple in your closet, every new trend that surprises you, because it cannot go wrong. The Chanel Classic Flap Bag is an investment in your style and self-confidence, something to go well with both jeans and an evening dress, and most definitely something you can proudly gift to your granddaughters, once you’re 80 and ready to part with it.

5. The Little Black Dress

lbd 446x632 Signature Style: Staples for Buy

Alexander McQueen Sleeveless Halter-Front A-Line dress represents the perfect combination of a staple we’re so used to love and the edge that it needs to be noticeable. When shopping for a black dress, it’s very possible that you find yours in a random shop, but just in case you were wondering, one never goes wrong by buying a designer LBD. Just like the Chanel Bag, just like the Black Blazer (there’s a black pattern here), it’s something you can wear forever, and whether you insert a statement necklace, or sandals from the latest collections, the LBD will always be LBD.

Fashion is not only about chasing trends and insisting on buying everything that we see on the runways. As fashion and style icons have taught us, fashion is about being smart, feminine and classy. These items will forever make you proud of your fashion sense and serve as proof for it whenever you put them on.

Luxury Plus Size Designers, Presented by The Curvy Fashionista

marina rinaldi dress luxe 505x632 Luxury Plus Size Designers, Presented by The Curvy Fashionista

It is always the perfect hour to shine, be a lady and show your fantastic self to the world. This weather and its colors definitely call for luxurious fashion, dramatic details and beautiful, natural fabrics. This is where designers can come in and enrich the fashion world with their craft, and since this is such a ladylike season, it’s definitely inviting for plus size designers. Today, we will talk about a few luxe plus size designers and when you see what we’re dealing with, you’ll know exactly why they’ve been hand-picked.

Why are they Luxe, exactly?

They’re exclusive. They’re fantastic. But that’s not all, as The Curvy Fashionista also pointed out, which is what Vogue Italia Editor Franca Sozzani defined:

 “What is luxury? Quality and not price? Yes, maybe, but it’s not enough. Luxury involves a much wider concept.”

The high-quality and creative ready-to-wear is identified as a luxury symbol. And it is, of course, from a business and brand placement point of view, addressed to a high consumer range. Craftsmanship is luxury. A product is luxe when it is handmade, tailored for few. Luxury meaning exclusiveness. Are status symbols luxury? Yes, sometimes. Not necessarily…”

These designers inspire with their classic pieces and speak to women who value that what they wear is a mirror to how they feel, and that sophisticated air is what makes a woman radiant.

Here they are:

It is quite a beautiful refreshment to have so many designers creating and crafting for all women and all body types, and the good news is – the ones you just read about aren’t the only ones. Every corner of the world hides a fantastic designer, waiting to show women around the globe what he or she can do for them and their figure and spirit, by hugging their curves with the perfect fashion piece.

Another thing to celebrate is the fact that more and more fashion brands are integrating plus sizes into their world, and we have designers like these to thank for making it possible.

La Perla closed its first La Perla Atelier Couture show in Paris with the perfect model to match their unique brand – Naomi Campbell. The Parisians had a chance to feast their eyes on the new collection made for both day and night, while the runway at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild was also blessed with the feet of models Lindsey Wixson, Izabel Goulart, Natasha Poly and Isabelli Fontana. This beautiful combination of people you like to look at, dressed in pieces you want to wear, along with an exceptional atmosphere made for a show to remember.

No matter how much we get accustomed to La Perla’s extraordinary designs, it doesn’t seem to stop with the tendency to surprise even more, every time their team of designers decides to shine a little light to the world of fashion.

It is no different this time, with the The Atelier Collection, designed by La Perla’s style team under the magic wand of Emiliano Rinaldi, presenting new combinations and layering using luxurious artisan techniques, light and sheer fabrics, and unexpected details. They inspire with their own inspiration, which is the company’s creative heritage and seduce with its unique and sophisticated techniques. At the pleasure of lovers of fine lingerie all over the world, the collection unveiled new, refined garments, capable of creating a total couture look that can be worn beyond the confines of private life.

La Perla crosses the line of the home and bedroom. It now enters a world where one can enjoy lingerie that is equal to a second skin, and we take our own skin everywhere. The fact that it looks astonishingly good in more than one situation is only a plus. And the fact that it is La Perla simply makes it a must-have.
