Highly-anticipated collaboration of Maison Martin Margiela



Maison Martin Margiela, famous with his deconstructed clothes, has always had amazing ideas sculpturing fabrics into an apparel with unique silhouette. And with this lower-priced line for H&M, it surely is one of the most highly-anticipated collaboration that I have been waiting for ages! Cannot wait!


Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week

I am blown away with the new Spring 2013 collection of Dolce & Gabbana. It is colourful, dynamic and whimsical when I first saw it. But when I look at the collection more throughly, I’m amazed with the technique and the material that they use. The collection is whimsical yet still look elegant.

To me, it is the decorative technique that make the pieces bold and fun to look at. The used bent cane to create corset and sculptured gown that are beautifully made. Many of them mixed with what looked like painted deck-chair stripes, to dresses trimmed with raffia. One or two of the hand-woven straw corsets deliberately resembled bread baskets.

Gucci Opened Milan Fashion Week



Milan Fashion Week opened with a stunning Japanese-inspired collection on Wednesday, as Gucci gave pyjama suits and long dresses a sensual twist with bell sleeves and billowing ruffled necklines.

A sunny palette employed for Gucci’s Spring 2013 collection is indicative of an optimistic state of mind — and after last season’s rich, glamorous outing of all black everything, this house needed a happy jolt of color.

“These are portraits of aristocratic women, evoking a strong allure with a clean, precise, defined aesthetic,” said Giannini, whose “aristographic” look featured high necklines and sharp cuts which seduced in their simplicity.

The hot pinks, seafoam greens, lemon yellows, and shades of blue Frida Giannini sent down the runway in Milan this afternoon were spot-on trend with this season’s wider color story. But where others created volume from the waist down, this designer focused on sleeves and necklines. Ruffles added a flirtatious softness to shirts and dresses — on one, the treatment started at the neck and snaked all the way down the wearer’s right arm. Bishop and angel sleeves abounded on solid colored garments, too — and it was hard not to appreciate that these effects weren’t extended to the few printed garments in the collection.

But Giannini can still do not-so-basic black. Toward the end of the collection, she phased in two dresses and some separates in the color that incorporated her sleeves and ruffles. They were a lovely homage to Gucci’s modern black moment (see: Tom Ford in the late ’90s), but we wouldn’t have missed them.

Philip Tracy and Lady Gaga



















It is 13 years since Treacy last staged a show in London, although rarely a week passes without one of his hats making a front page somewhere in the world. Princess Beatrice wore one to the royal wedding; Grace Jones wears them on stage.

Lady Gaga wearing a fuschia-pink cape took a walk on the catwalk to announce the commencement of a show by “the greatest milliner of all time”. She was followed by an all-black cast of models wearing outfits from the archive of Michael Jackson, a wardrobe of tiny-waisted stage designs which included the Thriller jacket. The show will be the only UK appearance of the clothes, before they are auctioned in LA in December. Treacy first met the auctioneers who leant the clothes when he visited their archive with his late muse, Isabella Blow, to buy Marilyn Monroe’s false eyelashes.

This was fashion’s most glamorous Halloween party. The catwalk brought to life the ghost of the late king of pop, while the front row, packed to bursting with friends, lovers and family of Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen, another longtime Treacy collaborator, was full of ghosts of British fashion past. Guests in elaborate hats and luxurious veils sipped cocktails through straws.

Before the show, the milliner described the event to the International Herald Tribune as “the most exciting show I have ever done”, adding that “Michael Jackson did better than anyone the sense of the extraordinary”. Hats included a miniature fairground, with working carousel, modelled on the Neverland ranch, and a pale sequinned glove which rested, spookily lifelike, above the immaculate profile of a catwalk model.


Vera Wang Spring 2013

Vera Wang spring 2013 collection at the New York Fashion Week was a pageant of opulent textures and details — gold embroidery, gold jeweled brocade, and even gold hammered bullion skirts. But amid the gold was an unexpected hue: chartreuse! The colour behaved like a walking exclamation point on the runway, seen in a pair of damask faille pajama trousers (prediction: a styling staple for next year), and in this arresting hand-pieced chantilly lace dress.
