Couture bag prank?

When Dior posted this picture on  Instagram, we thought – for a mere moment – that two of the most esteemed French fashion houses had collaborated on a bespoke accessory for the singer and couture fanatic.
Of course, no such accessory magic happened. The image was doctored by fashion prankster Reilly. The artist superimposed the word Céline onto the bag to provoke “LOLs” on social media.

Untitled design-1

Designer Marine Serre won the LVMH Prize – one of the most considered awards for young fashion designers.

There was a jury of fashion design legends which decided her destiny. (Karl Lagerfeld and Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquière) Serre, hadn’t expected to win. She didn’t think she was established enough to win the first place. A scout from the French luxury group asked Marine to compete in the competition against 1,200 other.

“It was kind of magical. It’s hard for a lot of designers today because things move so quickly. I don’t want to do it only to make money.”, she said.

Miranda Kerr’s Couture Wedding Dress

Fashion News

imageIn May Miranda Kerr and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel got married, but what the Victoria’s Secret model wore had – until now – remained firmly under wraps.

Inspired by the “iconic” gown worn by Grace Kelly at her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco, Kerr’s Haute Couture Dior gown was designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for American Vogue.

“I think it’s every girl’s dream to have Dior design her wedding dress,” Kerr told Vogue.

Dolce & Gabbana Present an Alta Sartoria Collection as Extraordinary As Its Cattedrale di Monreale Setting

Fashion News


When the Virgin Mary appeared to William II in a dream and asked him to build a church, the King of Sicily spared neither expense nor sinew in meeting her request. The cathedral he raised at Monreale, a small hillside town outside Palermo, is a wonder of the world.

“He had a vision, a vision of beauty,” explained Domenico Dolce last night. “He employed the greatest architects and artists from across the world.”

To understand the collection, Dolce & Gabbana’s clients needed first to understand the cathedral. All were invited to meander through Monreale’s monumental jewel and contemplate the 6,500 square metres of mosaics that were pieced together with 2,200 kilograms of pure gold. 

Among the most extraordinary pieces were sweatshirts and bombers made in painted patchworks of treated crocodile skin that recreated details from Monreale’s mosaics. There were also less gilded, in design if not materials, plain burgundy, black, and white crocodile pieces and sweatshirts of shaved mink. To acknowledge the multicultural multiplicity of Monreale’s magnificence there were jewel hemmed djellabas, slippers, phakeolises, and a fez. There were silk shirts, shorts, and pants printed with romanticized mid-century-style tourist poster illustrations of the cathedral’s piously austere exterior.

There were scores of examples in brocade, jacquard, and fantastic silk patchwork that all recreated decorative elements from King William’s duomo. A dressing gown and bomber jacket were cast in dimpled gold-stitched silk pressed to cast the same golden pattern as the cathedral’s soaring ceiling.

This collection is about history, but Stefano and I believe that this is what you need in fashion now, too: a vision of beauty.”

Rodarte’s Spring 2018 Collection Takes Bloom in Paris

Fashion News

Rodarte '18

In Paris’s Cloître Port Royal gardens, Kate and Laura Mulleavy presented their Spring 2018 Rodarte collection.

The sisters Mulleavy designed a collection that picked up on many of their signature silhouettes —hello, dots and bright prints—or a sweet floral elegance.

On the catwalk there were colors galore, often mashed up together into a single look. There was a sequin embellished dress in purple, red, and green, and a multicolored set of separates in vintage teal and maroon florals.

For Spring ’18, the sisters included tulle dresses and separates, embellished with: studded with pearls, ostrich feathers, polka dots. Delicate floral-print chiffon dresses and jumpsuits. A fluttery cape and jumpsuit covered in massive 3-D sequin blooms. And a palette that ranged from the palest, purest pastels to vivid magenta, scarlet, and lemon.

But mostly there was baby’s breath. Models’ hair was covered in it, as were a few of the loveliest dresses, and many of the girls walked the runways dragging massive bouquets of the white fluff behind them.
