Props to Donatella – while many designers have gone the way of the past (80’s, that is) with bright hot neon hues, wild prints and patterns, and rampant architecuring (?), she opted for a more refined look.
Raquel Zimmerman. A bit of glam, a bit of edge, a bagful of chic.
Sigrid Agren. Silky pale lavender, simple, timeless, elegant.
Yulia Kharlaponova. Simple black pant with a slightly shiny navy one-shoulder top.
Vlada Roslyakova. Marilyn Monroe, anyone?
Natasha Poly. Nude silk dress with a sheer one-shouldered look (interesting how she sort of played the two trends against each other).
Yulia Kharlaponova. Gorgeous colour, sexy cuts, great floaty dress.
DOLCE & GABBANA
30’s, 40’s, edgy, luxe, and firmly D&G.
Katrin Thormann. Huge shoulders added to a huge, fluffy, totally luxe white fur coat. Simple lines on the skirt.
Karlie Kloss. A print slightly reminiscent of snakeskin with the iconic pouf sleeves. Bows on the head.
Lily Donaldson. More shoulders, more line… linebacker? Not at all.
Jourdan Dunn. Fur-looking dress, fur collar, huge sleeves.
Chanel Iman. Hot pink silk, ruffles, bows, glitter, and glam.
Jac. Loads of ruffles and bows, pouffy sleeves, huge necklace.
Karmen Pedaru. Blue checked silk dress, blue fur collar, black leather gloves.
Olga Sherer. Look at the shoes! Nice pouffy sleeves with a bell at the end; sheer skirt, blue, bow.
Natasha Poly. Gorgeous huge skirt with Marilyn Monroe prints.
Raw, semi-destroyed, refugee-like, yet luxe materials.
Jessica Stam. Leather pants, rough-looking coat.
Ali Stephens. Camel-coloured fur and suede coat, looks so warm…
Gloves and, most importantly, the shoe-boots make a statement!
Leather corset, gladiator-esque bangles, fur-trimmed shoulders, and a hooded dress.
Nice thigh-highs, simple coat, bright red hooded dress.
Deep, rich red simple dress; bangles and bag.
Ali Stephens. Layered fur coat over a black… jumpsuit?
Catherine McNeil. Lace hem and top; stunning gloves and shoulders.
Black coat with overlay details and a feathery trim. Teal shoeboots.
Theme: simple mixing high- and low-end pieces; wearability. Featuring models with everything from Starbucks to Blackberries, this line screams practical chic.
Freja Beha Erichsen. Can’t you see this on the streets?
Heidi Mount. A bit of boho-chic in this. Very Olsen.
Giant scarf, cargo pants (?!?), lavender cardi under a leather jacket.
Great shorts: neutral, high-waisted (a bit), loose, simply chic. The vest and hat top it off.
Toni Garrn. Loose, sort of high-waisted khaki pants, cuffed up = trend, natch. And oh look, layering on top! Fur, denim, cardi, and a knit tee. And caffeine.
Daria Strokous. Matching shoes & bag – leopard print – with stovepipe jeans, a nude scarf, and a great black fur-trimmed coat.
Studded jacket, mixed layers, chic-in-a-bun. Ha ha, idk.
Look du jour:
