Antonio Berardi SS14 LFW

Antonio Berardi SS14LFW

The classic feminine evening dress was reinvented with this collection. Teamed with leather jackets, slicked back hair and bold red lips it showed this woman has attitude… and lots of it. .

Berardi moved into a new direction showing more relaxed and loose fitting outfits than ever before. He played with shape, the use of oversized or boxy jackets with fitted dresses worked well, as did the fitted tops with loose pants. There were some boyish pieces which retained there elegance through the use of delicate fabrics and pale pinks, reds and creams.

Never before has elegant and casual been merged so well into one.The whole collection was beautiful, wearable and styled very well, even if was a bit too pink for my liking.

Cushnie et Ochs

Were only half way through AW13 yet designers are now tempting us with their new collections as the 2014 spring/summer fashion weeks kicked of in New York.

New York is best known for shows by established designers such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Diane Von Furstenburg. So it was good to see strong shows from smaller less established brands like Cushnie et Ochs who have been gaining popularity over the past few years.

Established in 2009 their DNA for strong sensual feminine dresses have seen the brand go from strength to strength with celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez and Kelly Rowland hitting the red carpet in their dresses. Based on this collection there is no doubt we will be seeing a lot more from this brand on the red carpet in the future.

Tom Ford embraced monochrome in his SS13 collection

There are always so many trends to come out of fashion weeks that you never know where to start. But for me, one colour trend that stood out in the SS13 shows was how many designers used monochrome so prominently in their collections.

I loved how designers used this simple colour combo to reference so many eras, from the sixties (Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs), to the futuristic (Alexander Wang, Gareth Pugh) whilst others used it to simply make outfits look sexy, sophisticated and fresh.
