HAPPY MONDAY GUYS, LETS KICK OFF THIS WEEK LOOKING AT MY FAVORITE LOOKS FROM THE BLAZING HOT AND STYLISH ATELIER VERSACE SPRING 2016 COUTURE DURING PARIS FASHION WEEK. I HAVE THE FULL REVIEW AND OTHERS LOOKS BELOW. CHECK IT OUT AND ENJOY.
MUAHH XOXOX .
Glorification of every curve of a woman’s body through clothing—if there’s one house that owns that idea, it’s Versace. Under Donatella Versace’s reign, the label has recently taken a feminist slant, angling away from the notion of woman as rock-star arm candy and nightclub predator. Versace’s Fall ready-to-wear was a refreshing tour de force in glam urban militaria, but how to follow that in couture? The Rio Olympics are coming up in August, so maybe that’s what sent Donatella in the direction of female power through athleticism—the body used to achieve personal goals that aren’t to do with man-catching sexuality. Well, that’s what the soundtrack pointed us toward, anyway: a narrative by Violet, speaking out about “feminine strength to overcome obstacles.”
Nonetheless, this Versace Altelier collection was a full-on old-school display of cutaway, plunge, curve, slash, and skin display. After an opener of optic white tailoring and taut ski pants, it was on with the real business: feats of dressmaking engineering involving asymmetrical patchworked geometries, suspension by Swarovski ropes and twisted straps, embroidered and printed ergonomic patterns, skewed sequined checkerboards and poured silicone grills. In her couture collection, Donatella is determined to add new science to traditional techniques, and she noted that the work in this show was some of the most time-consuming she’s ever devised. Still, labor and complexity don’t always sell a dress. After all the body-con gowns and fitted minidresses, it was the moment when she broke free of the sporty theme with a few light, sheer dance-dress silhouettes with full, airy skirts that looked best.

Cushnie Et Ochs Is One Of My Favorite Designers Right Now And My Love Has Grown So Much Over The Past Two Years Since I Discover Them. Today I'll be showing their Pre-Fall 2016 Presentation which I'm so obsessed with.
They Totally Know How To Dress A woman To look classy But still sexy without exposing a lot to look trashy. Every season they get better and better and this season is no different. I love the edgy cut outs and wide leg pants to the asymmetric skirt etc.
This season, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs had the very clever idea of paying homage to the sari by, essentially, using Western dressmaking methods as a cheat—they conjured the garment’s drape and asymmetry by sewing on a bit of draped material here, or tying scarf-like lengths of fabric off to one side. Pencil-shaped dresses with silk draped off one shoulder, and choli-esque fitted material placed underneath, paid the plainest tribute to the sari; elsewhere, a tailored top with a wavy hem or an asymmetric jumpsuit with a deconstructed blazer top de-literalized the reference, almost to the vanishing point.
Cushnie and Ochs also riffed on India via their colors: The palette of ochre and brackish green and orchid steered clear of Indian fashion’s signature of bright yellows and pinks, suggesting the earthier hues of the landscape instead. The designers demonstrated similar understatement in the collection’s textures, the richest of which were found in their burnout satin and velvet, suede and quilted jacquard. Eschewing embellishment, they let the materials do the talking instead. The one exception to that rule was in a cable-knit embroidery, redolent at once of fisherman’s sweaters and Indian seed embroidery. (It’s a technique Ochs and Cushnie should consider evolving in future collections, to different effect.) The material richness here served to elevate the collection, as did its sense of circumspection: Though there were some skin-baring looks, for the most part these clothes erred on the decorous side. They seemed easy to wear—no lessons in the art of sari-draping required.
