Chanel Fall 2018 Ready to Wear

    There was something magic in the air this season at the Chanel Fall 2018 Ready To Wear show.  As you walked into the Grand Palais you were greeted by an eerie and beautiful enchanted forest, it something similar to from a Brothers Grimm children book.  Nine incredibly haunting trees stood centre stage, free

Hermes Fall 2018 Ready To Wear

Under a dusky pink Parisian sunset the audience milled as the anticipation grew for the Hermés Fall 2018 runway show.  Shifts of misty fog drifted between trees grouped around the edges of the outdoor runway paved in cherry red gravel.  This was the first Hermés show that I’ve been lucky enough to attend and the

A/W Interior Inspiration

Where we live the temperature has dropped from hot summer digits to cold autumn days. Within a week we’ve gone from short and thank top wears to knitted sweaters and jackets. I for one am LOVING it and the change in weather has me thinking so much of Autumn and finding that cosy feeling at home. There’s always a slight shift that the house makes as the seasons change. I suppose if we lived in a climate where it was warm all year round, the house would remain virtually the same. But here we experience all four seasons and so our space adjusts with them.

These images styled by Kristen Visdal and photographed by Margaret M. de Lange for Oslo Design Fair capture that feeling leading into Fall. Chestnut brown with black, shiny gold with soft burnt orange and shades or grey accented by deep mustard colors.

Oversized shirting and billowing fabric dominate A.W.A.K.E.’s Resort’18

Thinking of 2018 is almost unbearable for me, I’m just getting used to writing 2017 six months in! Yet for those who work and design for fashion, they’re been planning for next year probably before this one even got started.

This new collection from a brand I’m not familiar with is filled with generous amount of gathered and flowing fabrics, multiple uses of shirting as dresses, skirts and tops and palazzo style trousers. Personally I’d love to wear any of these this Autumn, given I had some place interesting to wear them too, of course!
