I was not too fond of this collection, I guess I always expect this designer to surprise me like he always does. I know that embroidered garments and bell bottoms is in style now now but I guess I expected more for 17/18.I find his muse Rihanna to be an inspiration for this ready to wear collection.

Were talking about the designer who created costumes and looks for world tours for Michael Jackson, Lady gaga, Britney Spears, Rupaul, Mick Jagger, The scissors sisters, And of course Rihanna and her River island retail brand.
Denim, metallic dark blue, red passion, is the colors mainly used in this collection. A great comeback for denim lovers. Bell bottom with long button down dresses, belts as a detail to accentuate the waist line. I understood the concept of the rose but as far as the direction he took had me a little lost. The messy hair bun, grease button down neckline and plaid seem to added to the very informal casual collection that can please lots of women who are just looking for something basic and not too over the edge.
This American designer born in San Francisco “Bay area”, Who is also the wife of Gabe Saporta also known as the primary creative force behind the group “Cobra Starship”, is a trend setter when it comes to style, simplicity, and comfort for her 17/18 collection. You can find her fashion line in places like Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and Barneys in the States and Asia. This collection can easily identify with a person that’s looking for a light fresh flowy look for the upcoming season. brown, burgundy, pastel pink, hunter green.
Perfect If you are looking for a loose fit . The layers, shinny details/ prints and tassels allows the wind to play with the garments, with very little use of floral prints and velvet. This collection can be easily worn for your day to day , work , dinner, or cocktail event.
The thing I like about this designer is that she allows her designs to be practical and useful for the average woman who is looking to stand out but yet be simple. The models had very little light, fresh morning day makeup with very light wave hair. It was seductive, feminine, with out having to overdo. A very nice collection for the 17/18 season.
The transition from summer to autumn isn’t easy for anybody but you can always sneak in a basic summer day dress with a nice bomber jacket or denim jacket during the day. It depends on your location, city and the climate situation.
Seems like the combination of black and white is never fading in the fashion world. If your lucky enough to get a hold of a sequence black and white bomber jacket, the combination of daily outfit is endless.
We all start autumn with that thin sweater. I started with a golden Mango thin sweater. perfect for the wind while the last summer sun beats down on you.
Yes you know the famous phrase
fashion always repeats its self. But its really up to you to find your self in that vintage outfit or accessory. In my case I have a vintage Custo Barcelona grey Jumpsuit. To me it speaks volumes. Its very basic and clean, which is very rare of this designer, who is well know for using a lot of graphic design and loud colors. What really makes it stand out is the little details on its shoulder and if you focuse on the design theirs a very nice print illusion that looks like a finger print, Custo had to leave his finger print I guess. May I add its a very comfortable piece for day to day wear and going out for a nice cocktail depending on the shoes and bag you wear. it feels great to have something versatile.
