MM6 Maison Martin Margiela stays clean

Today I'm not really doing a whole review on a collection but I just want us to take a quick fashion minute to check out the MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Fall/Winter '14-15 collection. I know most people are not always excited about this fashion house when I share their collections and that is mostly due to their very clean aesthetic which took me some time to understand and appreciate. This fashion house can do pretty much anything and every thing but one thing they always do is to stick to their clean and simple aesthetic. This season they chose to have a collection largely made up of the black and white, one might think that's somewhat boring considering that, monochrome was quite big last season but the lack of color is compensated with bright tangerine, heavy textures and clean lines. 
You check out the collection and tell me what do you think of this French fantasy.

The Perfect Silhouette x Proenza Schouler Fall '14

When one speaks of flattering clothes in women's wear, femininity should always be the first thing that comes to one's mind. From feminine cuts, textures to the most important aspect which is the silhouette. The silhouette is the most vital skill to acquire for any designer due to a number of reasons. One should only need things like belts and buttons to mostly accessorize rather than to create a perfect silhouette for their look because if one needs a belt to create what a designer should have done initially it means the designer at hand had failed in a way to consider the feminine body and how it works with different fabrics. 

The duo that make up Proenza Schouler are a perfect example of designers who have proven to have mastered the skill of capturing a female silhouette. Last season I was particularly happy with their in your face, quirky yet very chic photo prints. This season I am still happy to talk about this fashion house. For fall '14 the duo went for figure hugging jackets, interesting mixed prints and textures. 
One thing which is making me go nuts over this collection has to be the bright blues mixed with moody colors. The cuts are quite dramatic and flattering, a great combination for power dressing. This is for the woman who's out to takeover the world and a half. I swear Ready-To-Wear never looked this great.

Vera Wang x NYFW

Fashion is both a nocturnal and diurnal creature. Its a creature which sees no rest or sleep, soon after Haute Couture Week, Paris the whole fashion industry crossed over to the big Apple for NYFW. In keeping with this we'll look at one of the shows which were quite amazing and it comes in no other form than Vera Wang.
Wang sent down a quite dark collection which is quite a trend this season. Plaid in shades of grey were quite big as much as the moody floral prints were. 
The collection covered a woman who's in her 20's to much mature looks created for the woman on-the-go, who's both sophisticated and chic. Its quite clear with this collection that Wang, like every other designer is not about to let go of the sheer elegance trend as there were huge amounts of chiffon on most of the collection. 
Here are some pictures of the Vera Wang Gang down the runway straight from the big apple.
