Trend Watch – Modern Day Great Gatsby

Men’s fashion is given a new lease of life thanks to designers like Gucci who have dared to experiment with reviving beautiful tailoring and infusing it with elegant embroideries and unusual motifs, usually associated with women’s attire.

 

A current style revolution wave is certainly taking the fashion world by storm, where traditional checks are teamed with floral appliques and with exquisite delicate trimmings.

 

Gucci’s AW17-18 men‘s collection is a taste of things to come, so ditch traditional attire and get ready to embrace a more liberal style, oozing with panache and swagger.

Autumn 2017 Trend Watch – Queen of Hearts

Dolce & Gabbana’s AW17-18 Nuovo Rinascimento collection is overflowing with concepts and ideas and experiments with ready-to-wear apparel, accessories and shoes.

 

Take cue from the designers’ diverse runway display of colourful embellishments showcased by a tribe of influential millennials models.

 

The youthful vibe is mirrored in these white knee boots sporting black writing designed to look like scribbled notes a teenager would write in a journal, and in this cute Dolce Box handbag that recreates the pages of a notebook complete with love notes, featuring appliqué embellishment and slogans.

 

Show off these gorgeous accessories with stylish dresses, or with midi skirts and  oversized sweaters.

OCTOBER 2017 HOROSCOPES BY STILORAMA’S ASTROLOGER KENNY CORRIS

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

OCTOBER 2017 HOROSCOPES BY STILORAMA’S ASTROLOGER KENNY CORRIS

Aries:     Mars and Pluto kick off in opposition, and however you plan your time know that you will be subject to cancellations, delays and misinformation…. all along the line. It won’t stop you, but it will give you time to think, and this will surprise you too!

 

Taurus:     Venus conjuncts Jupiter and things should start to get very much better. You certainly get the green light on a project, but timing is of the essence since work wise it seems to be all something and then nothing. You are being tested to take on a new role.

 

Gemini:    Wildly indecisive, a quick response is what is chiefly needed right now, but you are finding it hard to put two and two together. Don’t make a mountain over a molehill, but do insist that others get it right as they seek to gain from your expertise.

 

Cancer:   There comes a time when you say to yourself that enough is enough, and choosing to ignore the warning signs is taking you into dangerous territory; whilst giving the impression to others you don’t give a damn, and you do! Face up to recent facts!

 

Leo:     The Cosmos is sending you a clear cut message, but your stubborn pride is stopping you from taking it on board right now. In the scheme of things there are many gaps that need to be filled before you can lay a foundation built on trust, and forgiveness.

 

Virgo:     Mixed blessings as you have to follow the dutiful role in a recent family development. The idea that everyone will chip in is far from the reality, and you face the lion’s share of the current problems. Mercury and Neptune steer you in the right direction.

 

Libra:   Okay, so you may have to bite your tongue, but something does have to be done and you are the right person to take things onboard. The Mercury sextile with Ceres brings you to your senses, although never forget that you have a choice, too!

 

Scorpio:   Anger is a dish best served cold, and you have every right to give somebody hell for that which they didn’t do. Taking control of the situation, however, brings an unexpected reward and clears up a mystery too. Jupiter squares up to Saturn.

 

Sagittarius:   Jupiter is ensconced with Venus, and for sure it is love out there that is causing you to feel the way that you do. To love is never wrong, and you have a good feeling that all could work out well. How will you ever know, though, if you don’t give it a try?

 

Capricorn:     It is such a shame if indeed the baby is to be thrown out with the bathwater, and all this at a time when you could do with diversion and interest in your life. The Mercury opposition to Neptune works against plans, but brings fresh new ideas.

 

Aquarius:    Take what you have heard with a pinch of salt. Uranus and Mars near to a fatalistic collision in which there is much to lose and everything to gain, but it will be a matter of showing who is boss that will win through. You are capable and nobody’s fool.

 

Pisces:      You have coasted through a relationship problem, and you are reconciled and ready to put a new plan into action, but it will only work if you let it, and if your partner does not let you down, however gently that could be. Look before you leap!

Trend Watch – Sophisticated Black

Trend Watch – Sophisticated Black

Elegant black is making a big comeback for spring/summer 2018.  Seen on many catwalks including Dolce&Gabbana‘s SS18 RTW collection which was recently shown at Milan Fashion Week.

 

Black might not be the obvious attire choice for spring or summer, we do however think that dressing all in black from head-to-toe is a the ultimate status quo when it comes to looking great day or night.

 

Wear black on black and accessorise with black shoes and a cute mini black tote.  Finish off the look with a bright red lipstick and with beautiful gold and ruby jewellery.

Irene SJ Yu SS18 Presentation Review

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Irene SJ Yu SS18

Irene SJ Yu’s spring/summer collection 2018 is bold and charismatic, a fusion of fun holiday wear and office vibes. Earrings, hair and prints are large and loud, giving the collection subtle eighties feels.

 

In true Irene SJ Yu style, contrasts are at play everywhere; romantic ruffles and off-the-shoulder pieces are juxtaposed with sleek layers.

 

The layering itself has a huge, over-arching effect on the collection; trousers are slashed with cut-outs, tops flash shoulders and midriff and puffed sleeves in shocking colours grace arms.

 

The overall effect is an in-your-face, kitschy aesthetic; Irene SJ Yu succeeds in delivering bold, independent-woman worthy pieces that are at the same time romantic, flattering and playful.

Mark Lupfer SS18 Catwalk Review

Markus Lupfer’s SS18 RTW collection takes us back to the 40’s era with romantic references to vintage swimwear and prints.

 

The colour palette was made up by tangerine and pinks as well as blues and whites, with a great emphasis on fabric variations which included sheer floral embellished dresses and super feminine pleated skirts.

 

Accessories like turbans, big shades, chunky earrings and funky footwear added to the collection vintage touches and brought the designs to life.
