Gibson Girl Gone Bad

Gibson Girl meets Edward Scissorhands. A blend of pompadour hair and leather clothing. These were the two images I had in my mind while looking at the Alexander McQueen fall collection.

Dash of Historic Flair

It’s the collection that has a touch of Elizabethan accessories, a dash of Baroque flair and a touch of Rococo romance. The fall collection for Giles showcased several details reminiscent of these various time periods. 

Winter Rose

Mamma Mia! Mother’s played a central role in the Dolce and Gabbana Fall collectionWith childlike embroidery, you could imagine mother’s wearing their child’s art. Although this was a bit chicer than imagining a coloring book page pinned to your dress.

Star Gazing in Couture

The Armani Prive Fall 2015 couture show opened with an ode to Elsa Shiaparelli’s shade of shocking pink. The powerful shade never goes unnoticed, and with the color comes a reminder of the designer who made it so popular in the 1930s.  Almost 100 years later and the color remains just as stylish.
