Vogue Brasils ‘Josephine’ brings sexy colors to this month’s issue!

723158-80tn

I like to see diversity in fashion. More than anything, I like to see expressive artist/designers bringing  a little crazy. This months ‘Josephine’ editorial is just that. It’s it’s got a whole lotta va-va-voom and some serious, cha-cha.

My favorite part? FIERCE COLOR!!! It’s summer and we all want to bring the color out of the closet, and get inspired. This vivid imagery and emotion made me feel THAT INTENSITY. I must say, this is the beginning of a love affair. A love affair with Vogue Brasil.

 

 

 

Victoria Beckham FW 2014; Simplicity in Design #FW2014 #Beckham #KISSMethod

When it comes to the fashion industry we do not take kindly to celebrities turned designers. Our world moves faster than most, is fickle and is overly discerning leaving us hyper critical of our peers. Add the fact a ‘celebrity’ turns designer (see Kanye/Kardashion’s/Nicole Richie/The Olsen Twins) and we are down right bitchy.

As we move forward in the industry, we have embraced the celebrity/designer. Fashion about growth. This has opened the door to talent like Nicole Richie, Gwen Stefani of L.A.M.B and of course Victoria Beckham.

Beckham’s designs have always been simple, clean and easy to mix match. This can be a drawback. Earlier designs from her introduction around 2010 were outright plain, boring and according to Style.com ‘boyish’. Learning from past mistakes she has dropped the androgyny from SS 2014 to create a properly appealing ‘women’s’ line that is less futuristic and modernized. Victoria Beckham brought a new and fresh style with a sleek, feminine look. With elongated dresses and skirts, the sheer trend that adding touches of well placed print and embellishment of pleats, prints, leather trim and fur, she has drawn from an almost vintage look.

Victoria has surpasses her old design’s with excellent choices in emphasizing a silhouette, adding dash of the sheer trend, creating a line that would look classy on any woman.

Beckham has won us over with her FW 2014 collection using elegant style with timeless chic.

It’s All About #Geometry. SS2013 Herve Leger.

With things going the way they have this January, I can only apologize for not filling you in and writing. I do however feel caught up on health and work issues so it’s time for me to dazzle you with something special. With NYFW upon us (the 7-14th) I thought you might need a pre-fashion week fix. Luckily the demi-god designer known as Herve Leger just put his SS2013 designs on sale. And they are beyond amazing.

This years Spring/Summer collection dazzles with geometric shaping. Known primarily for his beyond sexy bandage dresses, Leger always bring something new to the table. Otherwise his collection would not be THE thing to buy and wear. This year he added intensity in geometric shaping to make his dresses have extra emphasis on your body shaping. Turning every woman into a an angular modelesque shape that flatter and make his clothes and accessories as close as you can get to wearing art.

Note the harness and the shaped pants. They really are something out of this world.

And the The amazing piece by far is one of my favorites. The contours, lines with an addition of a flirty skirt make this well worth the money and pre-order.

My god it really is reminiscent of a piece of Art Nouveau. The lines both swirl and the embroidery delicate. This is modern-day grace.

Unfortunately with a whopping $12,500 dollar tag I may have to wait on buying it. Thankfully this is pre-order custom piece by Monsieur Leger.

Either way everything in this collection is worth buying and dreaming about. And dreams like this in my world, end up in my closet.
