Just Cavalli Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Fashion

Have you been longing for some high fashion with a touch of daring youth? You don’t need to think too much, it’s Just Cavalli. We hope you liked their resort collection unveiled not too long ago, because it is nothing like the new Just Cavalli pre-fall 2016 collectionwe’re about to discuss. For the pre-fall lookbook Cavalli has captured all the dark essence of the fall with the help of bold, vibrant colors paired with the dark side of the color palette.

Just Cavalli Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

When Cavalli is dark, it’s really dark! It’s not the boring pitch black you might imagine, it’s all encompassing black that draws you in like a galaxy. It’s the oily black print dress, where the print looks like reflections in a dark lake. To keep this short, we hope you understand our point; the new Just Cavalli pre-fall 2016 line isreally dark.

When it comes to styling, some of the outfits seem like interesting combinations. There are a few dresses and separates that could look glammed up if styled with high heels and a slick updo, but you expected that, didn’t you? And that’s exactly why it’s not happening. Some of the styling reminds of gothic punk, i.e. the all black eye makeup, messy hairstyle and a don’t-care pose that looks everything near to seductive.

The lookbook features 35 looks, all different, ranging from everyday outfits to glamorous dresses that you wear to a party with invites. There are also some eccentric pieces like the hot pink ankle boots with glitter paired with baggy leather pants and a flowy red and black shirt. If you are ready to go a mile more eccentric, try to handle the big fur coat of the same hot pink color, some outfits just look better when you’re hungover.

Other highlights include super long scarves (10 points to Gryffindor!), sometimes styled with an elegant dress and sometimes the usual leather jacket. A common theme seems to be the small prints you find on the bottoms – skirts and shorts – as well as on some of the shirts and the dresses. We are seeing many irregular stripes running in different directions, and we love them all!

The color palette is dark, but not monochrome. Cavalli has used a number of colors, so many you might find it hard to believe they’re all in one pre-fall collection. One thing is common in all of them though; all the colors are very deep and heavy, radiating warmth and the nature’s shades you enjoy just as fall starts to take over.

The only drawback we could point out is the meat on the model… meaning, there is absolutely none. Those designs are astounding and they would look just as gorgeous on a fuller model. A super-skinny woman is no longer a trend, so we would love to see Cavalli join the list of weight-conscious brands. Especially when some of the dresses do have curves, so why not put them on a curvy figure and encourage healthy lifestyle in the modelling industry?

Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2016 Ad Campaign

Fashion

The revolutionizer has unveiled his new ad campaign! Yes, it’s the Tom Fordspring/summer 2016 campaign we’re talking about (who else would lead the fashion revolution?). In his endless search for new ways and events to sell a collection, he has managed to become a media favorite. We are genuinely interested in every step Ford takes, because we are sure it’s going to be a new experiment in the fashion industry.

Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2016 Ad Campaign

And we are never wrong! Just when all other designers and brands are putting their resources in new ad campaigns, Tom Ford has decided to make the lazy shortcut. When the news broke that Tom Ford’s campaign is about to be launched on his website, we thought something big is coming (some of us even checked the weather for any upcoming storms). Tom Ford is still pushing the game of efficiency, giving us nothing more than shots from his Lady Gaga video. Yes, you heard it right! The images for Tom Ford’s spring 2016 campaign are from the video created in collaboration with Lady Gaga last October.

These images, however, don’t feature our art pop queen. Instead they show all the best angles of hot models like Lucky Blue Smith, Mica Arganaraz, and Lida Fox, and others. All looking styled from head to toe, having fun, posing like the coolest faces you will meet in an NYC club. Besides keeping platinum blonde and pastel colors in trend, Ford’s new campaign sends us incredible party vibes just before the weekend.

We are in tune with the energy of the campaign, but the master plan behind it is still slightly vague for us. Whether Ford saved on a new concept and execution or this is another statement move from him, we were expecting something more than the images from the video. Despite this slight disappointment that we are ready to forget because of the awesome collection, the campaign is very impressive. By the way, in case you missed, the video was shot by Nick Knight in Los Angeles.

We are expecting an international release with top fashion publications like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Vanity Fair in March. We think the main theme will be kept in spring – models wearing Ford and having fun on a runway-club. It’s not about the cold display you see during fashion shows, this campaign is all about character.

Losing control, having fun, and keeping it classy at the same time. Ford’s non-standard ideas and initiatives are a perfect way of expressing the fun-loving and crazy heroes of his new campaign.

Finally, the campaign has already been launched on the designer’s official website. Will this lazy shortcut work? Is it the new way of presenting collections and creating a hype? Go check out Ford’s new experiment, if you crave more details, and let us know what you think!

Alexander McQueen Goes to Seville For the SS 2016 Campaign

Fashion

Alexander McQueen continues to impress with its subtle ad campaigns, and for the spring 2016 photoshoot, the brand traveled to Seville, Spain. American fashion model Natalie Westling was cast to be featured in the Alexander McQueen spring/summer 2016 ad campaign, which was photographed by David Sims, a talent not new to the McQueen scene.

Alexander McQueen Spring 2016 Campaign

The setting was totally natural, with the clothes and Westling as focal points, with no other scenery around to distract the eye. Even in black and white, all photographs exuded freedom, which is something shoppers of this brand are known for with their fashion choices. But the brand also disclosed that the ad campaign served to explore the duality of the McQueen woman’s personality. So Westling had a big job on her plate, and seemed to properly execute it.

In the shots where she is out in the naturally bright landscape of Seville and those with the simple black and white backdrop, Westling is the epitome of the McQueen customer, with her carefree, dreamy expressions and ability to conform to each new shot’s requirements. As would be rightly expected, the light shots were accompanied by garments, which featured lightness and color. Conversely, the monochromatic photos featured tailored pieces, so the small, well-executed details could be more easily noticed. This helped emphasize the best qualities of each piece, without having to do anything special for each one. And they did look stunning against their respective backdrops. The clothes were given an edge of mystery in the natural landscape, when the frills became slightly blurred alongside the slight plants, which gave a fresh perspective on the photoshoot.

The setting makes the decisions for the Alexander McQueen spring 2016 campaign interesting, as there isn’t much of the Seville scenery in the campaign’s photos. The frames themselves are gorgeous, and knowing the photos were taken in Seville certainly adds a layer of exoticism, but aside from the lighting and minor plant life, the viewer isn’t really transported to any location. In placing such heavy importance on the location, it is up to the viewer to imagine the location in which these pieces could be worn, such as in Seville, since the exact images aren’t readily provided. There is still room for imagination, so wherever it is you want to go wearing these clothes, you can image the rest of the backdrop for yourself.

The Alexander McQueen spring 2016 campaign will be hot in the media, as it was released Monday evening to a plethora of influential media, such as several editions of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, T Magazine, T Magazine Japan, and W Magazine.

Valentino Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Fashion

There are few designer houses, which have more than 40 looks prepared for a pre-fall show. There are few who generally have over 60, no matter what season they are going for. Yet, we are faced with a rather spectacular eighty-four looks from the Valentinopre-fall 2016 collection alone, shown but two weeks shy of the men’s couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Picciolo. It is crazy, it is awesome and there are more outfits here than we can imagine trying on to figure out our purchase.

Valentino Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

The themes are interesting as well, for there is a sort of travel involved, the looks seemingly spanning worlds at a time and showing off architecture and monuments in combination. It appears that the merger is of the West, mostly covering New York and Americana, with a Japanese fusion in the Far East. The main pieces seem to be ones, where New York is personified, colorful and full of stars on top, the Chrysler building deftly created out in metallic sequins.

What accounted for the Japanese designs included an emphasis on the natural, from wabi-sabi embroideries of cherry blossoms to clouds and flying birds, all appearing on outerwear that featured tradition quilted lining.

What we see a lot of are long-sleeved dresses and pajama sets, button down and pleated skirts; there’s a karate gi with a tie-dye treatment, as well as the depiction of Mount Fuji combined with red, white and blue fireworks all around, as seen on a mini dress and a double face coat.

The whole of the Valentino pre-fall 2016 collection is positively delightful, from the neon colored cat on a black leather skirt and jacket collection, appearing as if it is a children’s drawing on a blackboard, to the gorgeous Frozen style dress with the long sleeves and the blue ocean spray design, ombre in is color and positively regal in its cut. Of course, the subtleness of such pieces is counteracted by the crazy graffiti colors seen on other such jackets, the New York look really bringing in the wackiness, while the Japanese being all about burst of color in a tasteful manner.

Tall boots also seem to be a thing here, alongside pretty denim that has been cuffed at the bottom, sheer jackets with tufts of fur and even a few ferocious dragon images on the ladies with the sweaters.

All in all, Valentino is by far one of the best designer collections and when it comes to pre-fall they certainly know what they are doing, hands down. We have been fans of Valentino for years now and it only seems to keep getting better as they give their fans exactly what they want and need, filling closets up with both casual pieces and the sexier looks, the gowns that may be seen on the red carpets and the simple everyday dresses that are so very much loved by us all. At the end of the day, Valentino tops it all with its creativity and sheer attention to every last detail in their work.

Tommy Hilfiger Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Fashion

As more and more pre-fall collections begin to unveil, we have been looking for theTommy Hilfiger versions with impatience for we expect it to be a blast. As expected, it does not disappoint with a lovely nautical theme to it, playing on the blues, red and whites and really giving into that seaman fantasy style. We see rather charming Breton stripes, along with naval coats, sailor tattoo prints and lots of shiny gold buttons. It is a woman’s fantasy turned into her own wardrobe collection really, from the outerwear to the shoes, the dresses and cuts and lovely denim that only Tommy can really pull off. The Tommy Hilfiger pre-fall 2016 collection is certainly one of our favorites and it has the best in casual everyday clothing you can find out there. There is even a fresh take on the Texas Tuxedo in all denim!

Tommy Hilfiger Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Velvet pants in a diver hue look especially good when paired with the captain’s jacket, complete with golden stripes and buttons as model Immy Waterhouse shows off the beauty of the creations. Fur, velvet and stripes are all common trends to be seen throughout the Tommy Hilfiger pre-fall 2016 collection, with a lovely faux fur jacket with an anchor in red and white across the back really looking grand.

There are twenty-nine outfits that appear in this collection, from high-waist shorts to bow on chest little black dresses, starry skies and stripes seen all over and the typical varsity jackets reigning supreme. Who does not love a varsity jacket anyhow? For women, it means they date the most popular guys in school, and when Tommy makes them to fit a woman but look as oversized as a man’s you only feel like you want it more.

Pleated olive colored skirts are certainly a favorite, alongside the black velvet shorts, the green and red striped shirt and pants combo with matching belt looking almost out of place among the rest. Those fury handbags are really cool though! Stars on maroon colored caps also make for an interesting fall look. Velvet overalls in black and gold are pretty sweet as well, particularly when paired with red and blue striped tank tops.

If you are totally American, you might want the star spangled flag in an interesting design created on a gorgeous sweater, paired with a pair of high-waist denim culottes and pumps that scream American pride. Who would not want them? This ensemble is perfect for a late Fourth of July bash, or if you plan on representing your country as you tour the world after peak season has passed.

Between the model and the collection unveiled, we have to say that this is our favorite Tommy Hilfiger line-up we have seen yet! We are looking forward to a whole lot more of this come the fall and winter 2016 Fashion Week runway shows, where we can enjoy some sweet live action and many more creations unveiled.
