JIAN

I fell in love the minute I laid my eyes on these comfy looking seatings. They felt so good and cozy when I imagined sitting on them in my background garden on a breezy summer night as I sip on my ice tea and later I can stretch on them on my porch while I sit watching the rain drinking hot chocolate.

The collection is modern and minimalistic both in color and design, it can be combined and arranged in various ways and styles according to ones space and for the ever restless ones who like to continuously redecorate.

The collection is called JIAN meaning “in-between” in Chinese. Beautiful design by Neri&Hu for GANDIABLASCO.

Ombré Fashion

It all started during the Alexander McQeen’s Spring 2001 RTW when the Dip Dye/Ombré colorful trend was introduced through a magnificent dip dyed feather skirt; accessorized with a huge feathered creation with stuffed eagles suspended over the model’s head (Hitchcock drama) followed by a breathtaking red dress with dip dyed feathers.

Later in 2002, Gwen Stefani decided to get married and went to Dior for her out of the world dress, and as always John Galliano didn’t disappoint. Her funky pink dip dyed ombré wedding dress was the talk of the continent, at the very least.

Still in the couture phase, ombré again was introduced through the exquisite taste of Versace in their lookbook for Atelier Versace spring Summer 2011.

During the Couture Fall 2012, the Chinese designer Yiqing Yin showed couple of gray dip dyed splendid outfits and some were suitable for everyday wear.

Elie Saab’s model flaunted the run way during Spring 2014 Couture with dip dyed ombré flower buds that are too cute I just want to pick them and hide them in my special box.

Then in came Burberry Prorsum Resort 2015 through which Christopher Bailey portrayed his vision of London’s rain as it washes the colors off his delicate British laced coats, and what a pretty sight it is. It is a sure thing that Burberry Prorsum is the real deal of ready to wear Ombré.

Sharif Hamza

Capture

For a fashion photographer and director who started his career only recently, 2010 to be exact, Sharif Hamza is a huge big “SHOT”

You can instantly know that an editorial has been photographed by him; the bright vibrant background with the amazing colors shout out to you “Check me out!”. Just think of  Lupita Nyong’o Dazed & Confused magazine and you would know exactly what I mean.

Hamza uses the light in a way that you can just reach out and lick Beyonce’s ice-cream or touch Lindsy Wixson’s radiant skin.

He photographed for many magazines including Dazed & Confused, W, V Man, AnOther, Interview, Love, GQ, and Vogue to name a few.He made campaigns for Dior Homme, Iceberg, Max Mara, H&M among others.

Besides Hamza is also a a filmmaker, his “In Motion” film by Armani with Liu Wen that was filmed exclusively for  AnOther magazine is breathtakingly intriguing.

One of my favorite photographers hands down.

Jewelry Trends Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Necklaces

One sentence sums it up “BIGGER is BETTER”. Designers are still going for huge, extravagantly oversized, bright, shiny, look at me fashion jewelry on the runway.

Headbands and tiaras are not to be found, my guess is that they are more of Springy/Summery kinda of accessories.

Heading down to the neckcandy and you have a variety of chokers, necklaces, and chains, and pendants.

Balenciaga went for a choker filled with Swarovski stones paired with a matching bracelet.

Chanel is still the “Pearl Brand” through and through with as many ropes as you can wear kind of jewelry with different pearl sizes.

Tribal necklaces appeared at Vivienne Westwood and Etro. They come in different sizes but the longer the better. Made of metal, leather, beads, tassels, plastic, and wood.

Floral necklaces are still a powerful element for the upcoming fashion scene whether shiny gems like Riccardo Tisci’s amazonian crystal collar at Givenchy or huge crystal colorful blooms at Dolce & Gabbana

Gold can never grow old. It came in  many shapes, sizes, and details sometimes with over-the-board number of chains or a huge padlock and numerous symbols at Chanel, Moschino, Balmain, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Celine, and finally Maiyet “Torq”

Roberto Cavalli Resort 2014

Roberto Cavalli’s Resort 2014 collection  is the ultimate wardrobe any woman would want for the perfect holiday. Animal prints, colorful prints, whites, and blacks. Dresses, pants, jackets, skirts, suits, everything  you can think and want in your closet. It is the complete package, the collection dresses you up in a light and breezy, full of small tantalizing embellishments, dress for the lazy brunch by the pool, then a quick change into hot red pants/ or denim with bohemian details and an edgy biker jacket with leather fringes and metallic accents for the sight seeing and shopping rounds.  Finally for the perfect night;  a choice between the pure white bohemian summer dress or dangerously on the edge cutout black bohemian dress.

And because he cares about you and loves you, Roberto completed the collection with beautiful sandals with matching bags and clutches with bird details. 

It is  simply my dream wardrobe full of perfections.
