A palette of light colors such as nude, ivory, white with a blend of tobacco, orange, mustard, royal blue, emerald green and of course black tones was introduced, suggested an Africa tone inspiration. The ruffles, fishnets, crystal embroideries, crossed tops, macrame and suede gowns were indeed the leading characters of this catwalk.
Cloths in this collection might seem fragile, but they still distinguish Balmain’s sense of a strength, powerful and still sexy-glamazon women, imposing once more his hashtag of “#Balmainarmy”
Alessandro Michelle, Gucci’s new creative director sure had warm welcome with this S/S 2016 Ready-To-Wear collection, shaking up the chic, geek, girly, vintage inspiration. Highlighting every single detail, taking the gowns to a next level.
Gucci’s signature red and green colors, couldn’t be more present, as well as the fabulous well made, workmanship cloths and accessories that simply screamed “Made in Italy”. This definitely gave the meaning of luxury come back a new direction.
Anya Hindmarch, never stops to amaze us, always transforming the everyday essentials to luxury fashion essentials. For this S/S 16 season the collection was inspired by various retailers such as Carrefour, Mothercare, Boots, WHSmith logos and John Lewis, with its emblematic stripes.

Making his debut in New York City, Ricardo Tisci, created a show that went just beyond expectations. The show took place at Pier 26 by the Hudson River, just before sunset with stunning views of One World Trade Center and Lower Manhattan.
Working hand with hand, with world known performance artist Marina Abramović, the show was not only a dream come true for Ricardo Tisci, but was also a runway that embraced a lot of symbolism, not only because it was Tisci’s 10th anniversary in the fashion house, but because it took part in the 14th anniversary of 9/11. Creating a scenery that was a full tribute, with one powerful message love. As Ricardo Tisci described it “ We are all the same, love is for everybody, love doesn’t have a religion, love is love, and we’re in the same platform and we’re all the same”
More than 1000 guests, live performances by different ethnic musicians, over 80 female and male model exits, the runway showed a magnificent collection surrounded by lace, chiffon, silk and feathers in black, white and ivory shades.
The whole scenery, made that night, definitely a night to remember.

It all began with the fantastic light up Ziegfeld theater billboard announcing “One Night Only, Marc Jacobs, #marcjacobspremiere” followed up with an outside red carpet where the models showed the outsiders a sneak peak of the fashion show, before they made their big entrance into the theater.
The whole theatrical production was a tribute to the old New York, mainly to old american movies and classic old-school glamour. All surrounded by a collection that showed a vast variety of gowns ruled by white, red and blue shades, combined with very shining and beaded details.
A nostalgic but yet energetic, bright, colorful and fun runway were the models just shined like real stars.
