Hello, hello my sweet readers! Another day, another mash-up post. August is almost over, Fashion Week is almost here and Fall is really catching up with us quickly. Three reasons why we need to get our closet ready for a month full of events, I like to call it September the Beautiful. This is the fourth post from the series, we still have two more to go and we are done. Today I have a Spring trend that drove crazy all the fashion world, pajamas. I also have the trend that seems to be driving everyone crazy as we speak: baroque (seriously, D&G, you are killing us with some lovely and fashionable showers). Let’s start, shall we?
- THE TREND: Pajamas
- Season: Spring 2012
- As seen in: Stella McCartney, JW Anderson
- Key wardrobe pieces: the pajama shirt, the printed loose pants, the slippers
Dubbed by everyone as one of the best collections of the season (along with Jonathan Saunders, Peter Pilotto and my candy coated Louis Vuitton), Stella McCartney’s lavish pajama kingdom is definitely one to remember. No wonder all the retailers later followed with their own pajama sets. From Zara’s perfectly tailored, printed pants, to Theory’s silky shirts, wearing pajamas has never been more fun!
The selection: Shirt, TUCKER / Pants, DVF / Top, J. CREW / Slippers, OSCAR DE LA RENTA / Shorts, ADDITION by THAKOON
- THE TREND: Baroque
- Season: Fall 2012
- As seen in: Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain
- Key pieces: The clutch, the dress, the shorts
Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana have been just killing it since Spring 2011 (who could forget the white Broderie Anglaise mania or the fresh produce prints from Spring 2012), now they swept us off our feet with their opulent and beautiful work of art. Baroque is everywhere this season and for a girl like me (my motto in life is “more is more”) I couldn’t be more happy! So embrace the lavish, embrace the gold, embrace the details, embrace Baroque.
The selection: Cardigan, RIVER ISLAND / Tank top, ALEXANDER McQUEEN / Bangle, RIVER ISLAND / Slippers, MIU MIU / Box clutch, ALEXANDER McQUEEN
I know, I now, I am not that much into black, but the leather, silk and baroque mix is my match made in heaven. I put together a flirty and romantic (with a touch of dark) look. Te lining on the pajama shirt fit in perfectly with the printed cardigan and the ruffle skirt. The bag was just the cherry on the cake!
