Renewed Hogan's logo was introduced just recently and there is an impression that it enlighten the whole brand. Well, one just cannot pretend not to see how sportish, but yet elegant, with clear attitude of cosmopolitan lifestyle the new Hogan`s collection is. Basic, but yet details orientated. Have you paid attention to the sneakers? You better should, as they look like been invented for strong, charismatic woman who is enjoying all aspects of life. Hazelnut metallic ones are absolutely adorable! This presentation generated lot of interest, so one could see lot of famous faces there. Sara Sampaio was one of them - what a beauty she is, even in person. The other beauty, Martina Colombari - an Italian actress had such a perfect outfit, completely matching with Hogan's values.
What an incredible premiere of the new Creative Directors Duo with collection which they revealed during Milan Fashion Week! Eleonora Pujia and Vinciane Stouvenaker- applause for those two truly inspiring women from fashion industry. The “table which they set „had some perfect ingredients to present”. It was so clear that an amazing collection like this only could came from someone who has impressive experience and knowledge, but at the same time so fresh and bright creativity. Eleonora Pujia's experience is not only coming from her understanding of Coccinelle's brand (she's been with this brand for more than twenty years), but also from the Prada and Miu Miu. Her deep understanding of luxury brands is such an advantage.
On the other hand, Vinciane Stouvenaker influence is seen through the artistic vibe of the collection. As a result of fashion and art combined - there is a masterpiece created. It is no wonder that the first iconic bag of the Coccinelle's brand - “the Celeste”, is her design. Both of those fashion ladies are incredibly inspiring. The bags they created are so lovely that no one can resist wanting one for themselves. Sizes, shapes and colours, so modern, but yet with some sophisticated classics, they combined all elements into something outstanding. Pink, olive green, beige with some sparkling details-wide choice, so you might end up with more than one of those cute, classy bags.
Opening of the new La Perla store at Via Montenapoleone – it’s even beyond words how stunning this event was! Literally-so glam and shiny, it's no surprise that campaign star was Kendall Jenner. The other two ladies who represent the brand are Liu Wen and Mariacarla Boscono, and this trio truly showed what La Perla brand stands for. The eclectic atmosphere of newly opened store made me feel so cheerful, it was provoking creativity. Blooming bougainvillea in addition to the whole interior was a perfect solution. Speaking about the collection, bodysuits are something indeed special, not only the golden-beige one which Kendall Jenner was wearing, but also the pink one-presented within store. Completely adorable. Satin and lace, together with silk-aristocratic materials used for those marvelous pieces just make any woman wearing La Perla feeling like a royal!
Atsushi Nakashina’s presented collection is oriental and sportish, but in the other hand it's very lively with clean, bright colours. The impressions were changing, as models were passing by, and different outfits rotated. It is a magnificent mix of materials and structures. Shinny kimonos, oversized pants and jackets, together with sweet sweaters took their role in this exhibition of colours and shapes. Colour-blocking once again pointed up how powerful it could look.
Have you ever imagined how the shoes would look like if the past was refreshed and bit redesigned through future's possibilities of modern era? Well, the product of this mutual cooperation would be just like Giusti's. The sisters did really great with a new collection which looks absolutely luxurious with essences of baroque within, but upgraded by the simplicity of shapes and lines which precise patterns of our time brings. Somewhat clean designed, packed with basic colours, just smoothly saturated with prints gives some conceptual artistic vibe to the collection presented at Milan Fashion Week. Mini heels combined with cashmere applications are the perfect proof of the past trend's restauration.
This was definitely the best organized show, as the entire stuff were very calm and extremely helpful. One just could feel that it is a German brand. Those guys planned and organized everything to the details, and they did it perfectly. Having done such an incredible job, it's no wonder they were so cool before the show started. Something wild, but yet something so natural was expressed through the collection, I felt as the runaway turned into some nature. Shades of brown, orange, green, beige and black highlighted that impression very easily. Made from high quality materials, accessories with clear statements looked like perfect matches with all outfits presented.
How creative story came from this unique brand! With the new collection presented, the one gets opportunity that with possessing one of those bags-actually could have three different kind of bags. Isn't it indeed something amazing? Depending on the occasion, you can align your bag to look like as you need it to. Changing shapes together with wide range of colours –what a useful possibility. Combination of blue and light gray was so beautifully designed, looking very exclusive, and the real fur made that impression even stronger.
We had some pop-art presented to us here. How original and fun it was, you could easily get confused whether you somehow ended up in insanely interesting '80s or you sit at Milan Fashion Week and watching a show! And the colours... shocking pink, together with many shades of blue, the accent was on strong and bright attitude. Sophisticated style of haute couture mixed with pop era, but yet so desirable for wearing in every-day occasions.
Classy, elegant, chic, confident and strong, I could get lost in the beauty of Elisabetta Franchi’s collection. Long dresses, delicate blouses, with perfectly matching details-glows and jewels attract attention so easily. Soft colours, such as pink and vanilla, matched with strong ones feel like the definition of incredible style. Mystery, independency, charm and charisma, those are just some of the attributes which are highlighted by Elisabetta Franchi pieces. I am such a huge fan of this brand!
Milan Fashion Week went definitely beyond my expectations, and I really deeply appreciate professionalism and hospitality from all the people involved. Milan certainly was a good place to be those days, and I loved the vibe created in the city. As I wanted to keep you updated, I held all those visual memories on my Instagram profile, so feel free to check it out any time.
