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.

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.

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”
