See All the Womenswear Looks from Balmain’s Menswear Spring 2017 Show

Fashion

Presented on Saturday in Paris, Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain spring 2017 menswear show hit it big indeed, with It personalities in the fashion world rocking both the catwalk and the front row. As promised, Rousteing also showcased a jaw-dropping selection of the womenswear spring 2017 looks, with models Sasha Luss, Cindy Bruna, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes and Joséphine Le Tutour strutting down the runway.

Balmain Spring 2017 Womenswear Collection“The beauty of the girls has to be matched with the boy. There’s a very definite beauty with the girls. They’re all very different, and they’re from all over the world. It’s very democratic in that way. But there’s a beauty and a confidence and a sexiness about them. And we really wanted to match that with the boys;” Jess Hallett, Balmain’s London-based casting director told Vogue, giving us a glimpse of what designer Rousteign looks for in a runaway show.

And if the beauty of the girls had to match the style of the boys, music literally played a huge role in capturing the collection’s main theme too. A live orchestra performed some of Phil Collins’ and Seal’s biggest hits form the Eighties and Nineties.

Although being not purely/solely Eighties/Nineties-inspired in style, both the women’s and menswear line-ups featured characteristic details from those decades, such as sheer and denim appliqués, floor-length airy gowns and cut-outs on the shoulders.

The women’s looks were ultra colorful and never boring, which is something both the Eighties and the Nineties had in common although in different ways (while multi-colored rainbow patterns were a must in the Nineties, the Eighties focused more on multi-colored retro prints and bright color-blocking motifs).

For this reason, the Balmain’s spring 2017 women’s looks feature both vibrant solid-colored ensembles, such as the shocking orange maxi dress, and mini dresses with sheer embellishments that got colored with a more modern, if not even sophisticated version of the tie-dye print. Nineties-inspired skimpy crop-tops got combined with sinuous high-waisted maxi skirts with side slits, the color-blocking orange and blue patterns of which are super covetable.

Like some of the men’s proposals, the womenswear line also focused on warrior-like, street-style outfits: an off-the-shoulder top combined with billowy khaki trousers and a wide belt cinched at the waist perfectly captured this style.

Asymmetrical gowns got paired with zig-zag-patterned kimono cardigans, denoting Olivier Rousteing’s passion and forethought on proportion. Besides matching the women’s and men’s proposals with one another, the designer put a great emphasis on the importance of balancing the figures either with embellishments, such belts, or geometric colored patterns on the fabrics, never missing the chance of giving an almost theatrical dynamicity to the entire collection.

Lastly, aside from a very few total black and total white staples, all of the women’s (and some of the men’s too) proposals featured tassel adornments either on the waists or necklines, which draw our attention to the astounding accessory line he created for spring.

GIVENCHY FALL 2016 SEASONAL BAG COLLECTION FEATURING NEW GIVENCHY PARIS SHOULDER BAG

Other Brands

Givenchy-Fall-2016-Classic-Bag-Collection-Featuring-Metal-Crosses-Nightingale-Bag-35

It’s as if two or more bags isn’t enough, Givenchy’s Fall 2016 Seasonal Bag Collection will then catch your attention before you even manage to say No. Let’s talk about these two particular bags that has caught our attention.

First off is this lovely Small Cross Body Bag with ‘Givenchy Paris’ debossed on its fine and smooth black leather. We like the simplicity and exquisiteness of this shoulder bag. Its plain design isn’t washed out entirely because the debossed logo made it a complete standout. That’s what we want in a bag: simple yet has a signature statement.

Givenchy-Fall-2016-Classic-Bag-Collection-Featuring-Metal-Crosses-Nightingale-Bag-9

Another one that is on our list is this Chain Wallet in Smooth Leather with Metal Crosses. Yes, definitely a style stunner, this chain wallet is perfect for those sweet yet swift errands that you have to attend to during the weekends since you need not be stashing a lot of things inside your wallet on chain bag. And oh, this also goes pretty great for that certified punk look especially when you go to metal/rock concerts with your equally cool girlfriends.

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Fall 2016 Makeup Line

Fashion

MAC Cosmetics and Ariana Grande have joined forces for the second time already to produce something unique and ultra-flirty as far as makeup goes. The MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 makeup line for fall 2016 is set to debut at MAC Cosmetics and Nordstrom in the beginning of September, 2016, and comes to turn you into the Barbie doll of your dreams.

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Fall 2016 Makeup Collection

Comprising a lipstick and a lip-glass in a juicy pink shade, the collection will instantly add that kittenish, glammed-up touch to your fall looks, urging MAC’s customers to “Be a doll, and go glam!” What’s more, all the proceedings from the product sale will be donated to M.A.C. AIDS Fund, which has raised $425 million so far!

Perfectly embodying Ariana’s feline style, MAC’s new lip line looks way too pink and sweet to be ignored. While the 22-year-old songster wanted to channel her ‘bad gal’ side with her previous collection, this one truly captures her doll-like essence.

In the promo image, Grande is wearing her signature cat-eye makeup paired with the bright matte lipstick and a high ponytail, trapped in a real-life dollhouse, which is naturally painted in pink. Even Grande’s outfit is pink! Pink overdose, you might call it!

It’s kind of a tradition for MAC to announce a new fashion and beauty icon as its Viva Glam ambassador each year and to produce such mini-collections that stand for such a great cause. Previously, the brand has teamed up with Madonna, Lady Gaga, RihannaMiley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj, just to name a few.

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipstick ($17.00) (Limited Edition)

While her first lipstick creation for the cosmetics brand was quite edgy and dark, Ariana’s fall lipstick comes in a bright orchid pink shade with a matte finish to instantly jazz up your gloomy fall looks. We want to own every single new color our favorite MAC lipsticks come in, especially when they provide that desirable matte finish that’s perfect both for daytime and party wear.

This color is meant for self-confident women, who want to instantly make a statement without trying too hard. Match it with a barely there neutral eye makeup to walk out the door looking radiant during the day, and if you strive to create a more eye-catching effect, dare to layer it with the new lip-glass for a luscious finish on your pout!

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass ($16.00) (Limited Edition)

While Ariana’s lipstick color is much energizing, she has managed to achieve the perfect balance with the lip-glass color, which is a delicate neutral mauve color that will look amazing both when worn alone or in combination with the bright pink lipstick. It comes to provide a lovely opaque finish, while the color looks pretty wearable on a daily basis.

CHANEL METALLIC CHAIN CLASSIC FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Metallic-Classic-Flap-Bag

We love to feature stores from serious bag hunters and here’s one from Fev LSM. She bought the Chanel Metallic Chain Classic Flap Bag in Galleries Lafayette Paris. And she loves it (we love it too).

If you’re confused which handbag this is, we fully understand that because there are so many choices. We are here to clarify – this is a seasonal flap bag from the Chanel Spring Summer 2016 Collection Act 2. You know, the collection filled with Chanel trolleys.

But this bag is absolutely gorgeous and the price is just right. And here’s why…

It’s like the Chanel Easy Flap Bag that we so much crave for back in 2013. The Chanel Easy Flap Bag was quite similar to the original Classic Flap Bag, but the price was less expensive. It makes all the ladies around the world happy.

READ: Chanel Easy Flap Bag

The Chanel Metallic Chain Classic Flap Bag is like that too. While the Medium Classic Flap Bag is retailing for $4900 USD, this bag is just priced at $3200 USD. It’s really a steal for a Chanel bag.

What’s more? The bag is quilted and beautified with the CC logo on the front. It has the same size and roughly the same compartment like the Classic Flap Bag (maybe a little bit bigger, but that’s only better).

The shoulder strap is made with a strong vintage-colored golden chain, which looks quite like a boy chain. And don’t we love the boy bags?

The medium size has the style code: A9400, size: 6.7’x 12.6′ x 4.7′ inches and the price is $3200 USD, €2950 euro, £2160 GBP.
