  • Leg Work- Spring 2012’s Best Footwear -Celine, Dries Van Noten, Rochas, Yves Saint Laurent

    YSL Spring 2012

    After seasons of major statement making shoes with mind-boggling heel heights and preposterous ornamentation, we’re really feeling the simplicity of the footwear options we saw on the runways for next spring. That’s not to say that footwear has been reduced to the simplistic and merely functional, quite the contrary indeed. From YSL’s shielded heeled loafers to Rochas’ mirrored slides, there were plenty of options out there to lift your wardrobe’s potential and your spirits too.  Here’s a look at the…

    Rochas Spring 2012

    After a month+ of consecutive international fashion shows, it can be hard to not only remember what we’ve seen, but to get a second to glance at all of the astonishing details seems sadly unlikely. That being said, we wanted to take a moment and look back at everything one could easily miss. Here’s a look at our favorite elements from all of the Paris shows starting with Rochas’ angular techno take on 50’s starlet glamor as seen above.  >> MORE: FASHION…

  • Best of Milan Fashion Week- D&G, Jil Sander, Moschino, Prada – Spring 2012

    jil-sander-rtw-spring2012-details-125_133451262416

    As per usual, from New York collections one can expect pragmatic sportswear(the kind that doesn’t often reinvent the wheel, maybe just spins it), from London one can expect out-of-this-world, well executed propositions and from Milan; riotous colors, bold adornments and brilliant uses of technological advancements in fabrications. And with that being said, Milanese designers did not disappoint. We saw a large variety of finessed, retro-inspired options full of energy, enticing plays on print and a generous dose of giddy sex…

    3.1 Phillip Lim

    Highlights from some of our favorite shows… MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS 3.1 Phillip Lim In a season where heavy handed prints have been the big story, 3.1 Phillip Lim’s slouchy silks in sublime sorbet colors evoked a sporty ease and worked as a welcome urbane minded palette cleanser with a cool minimal, mellow edge. Taking a cue from sportif elements like track style vented pants made unexpected in languid silk, shorts layered over pants and slouchy full legged athletic shorts, the…

    Chris Benz Spring 2012

    Runway Review Snippet… New York's charming prince of color & prints, Chris Benz, showed off his brilliantly quirky ode to fantastical Upper East Side eccentricity on the much talked about male model Andrej Pejic for a dizzying riff on infamous 60's cult icon Candy Darling. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS Benz's collection shone alongside many of his print heavy peers thanks to a relaxed, slouchy silhouette and intense color choices that were played down by the kind of classic shapes women…

  • Jil Sander Navy Spring 2012 Fashion Presentation

    Jil Sander Navy Spring 2012

    Runway Review Snippet… Platform brogues punctuated a youthful, tomboyish and relaxed spirit from an otherwise characteristically utilitarian outing from Jil Sander's secondary line, Jil Sander Navy. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS While knife-pleated skirts and prim blouses made for a bulk of the collection, the real draw to the range came via a subversive and vaguely military ode to Girl Scouts and to uniform dressing as a whole. And just like Jil Sander's main line, there were plenty of smart separates…

  • Cut25 by Yigal Azrouel Spring 2012 Fashion Presentation

    Cut 25 by Yigal Azrouel - Spring 2012

    Consisting of mostly body-conscious mini dresses with graphic cut-outs in an array of electrifying neons, Yigal Azrouel's Cut 25 presentation was somehow able to reach a more relaxed momentum than the kind of party-girl sexy his chosen range of silhouettes might suggest. And that's a good thing as we at FocusOnStyle have seen enough skin-tight body-con dressed open-toe bootied girls than we can bear. And thankfully by the looks of it, Azrouel has had enough too. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS…
