Get Inspired

With "The Great Gatsby" in theatres in the moment, all gatsby inspired fashion can be found in the shops and it is sure to be one of the hottest upcoming trends on the runways. Beaded knee length dresses, fringe cropped tops, feathers and embellished accessories as well as pearls and diamonds will be part of the trend and you can wear these items on a day to day basis with your everyday clothes as well!

The ladies from the 1920's were classy and very elegant and the colour palette  for our Gatsby inspired fashion is nudes, whites and gold - that can all be seen as sophisticated and elegant colours.

Chanel Cruise Collection 2014

Yesterday Cara Delevingne, Stella Tennant andLindsey Wixson walked for Chanel, modelling their Cruise collection in Singapore to a 50s soundtrack by French sound designer par excellence, Michel Gaubert.
The show was held on a former nutmeg plantation and army barracks in Singapore’s Loewen Cluster on Dempsey Hill. The climate is as tropical – and Cruise appropriate - as they come.
Wherever Karl Lagerfeld shows – this small island state off mainland Asia included -  he draws an epic crowd: Dakota Fanning and Carine Roitfeld were just some of the attendees flown in straight from the Met Ball in New York for the occasion.  
As you might expect from a Cruise collection, there were sporty elements– some models were even wielding cricket bats – but there was also softness to the silhouette reminiscent, of Gabrielle Chanel. A flash of electric blue eyeliner complimented the fresh, powdered palette.
The Cruise collection moved away from the tough, dark mood of autumn/winter 2013 – this is Chanel in the holiday spirit, after all – and there were sophisticated references to Southeast Asia’s rich past in the loose shapes, raffia dresses and super-luxe, classic Chanel details.
Karl has done it again.
