This Spring it’s all or nothing. A nod to the past has brought back defined shapes and a play on colors. Put away your floral’s and head to the stores to pick up your favorite look  with an 80’s flare. Shoulder pads are in and demure is out. These looks are soft but tough. Vintage, yet modern.

At Tom Ford, Gigi Hadid and other supermodels, are wearing pretty pastel pink and yellow. The bold splash of color teases the eye but doesn’t dominate the outfit. Other favorites on the runway consisted of baby blue and a pale or mint green. This season has a sweet statement, with light beauty makeup, a classic closed toe heel, glitterati sparkle, finishing off the look with a splash of color.

Mix and match with a dash of color yet not overpowering. Embrace the suit jacket and boxed shoulder. Skips the nudes and head for pastels. It’s an update, with a nod to the classics, and modern update.

In the history of fashion the 1970s were all about nudes, browns, and stylistically very much about ruffles and loose clothing. In the mid 1980’s there was a huge backlash to the constant earth tones and relaxed style of clothing  and woman embraced striking color, square figures and streamlined looks. 1980’s inspired looks are full of bright colors, animal and cartoon prints, finding their niche on the runway and back into the fashion fold in 2018.

Spring/Summer brings color back to the fashion market. This season’s statement is all about the bold and beautiful.  Often seen on the runways of Moschino, The Blonds and jewelry designer Lynn Ban, extreme color is no longer a closet trend.

Seen on 2018’s Spring collection’s we are embracing the adventurous. Animal prints, crazy cartoons, hot pink and orange, electric blues, these have come back in a totally eclipsing way. It’s time to embrace the 80’s colors but instead of being over-sized, mixing and matching, keep your outfit a focused and fearless outline. Bust out your leopard, zebra and giraffe prints. The 80’s are roaring and it’s time you caught up.

Having lived through the 80’s as a child, I missed this playful era of fashion. It means dusting off a dated era and adding an update that makes gives it a contemporary look. Looks that are simplistic, yet eye catching in their statement. Shoulder pads are making a comeback the right way this time, and print’s with color are inspiring and acceptable again. Streamlining your look makes it easy to find an outfit in your closet, no more messy mix and match. Floral’s and 90’s inspired grunge, have given way to much stronger use of colors, even in pastel.

Color, no matter how you wear it is in, and the 1980’s style has a very strong foothold.

Glass Magazine Chanel Editorial – Summer 2017

What do we love? Chanel. Who else do we love? Glass Magazine. Why?

Recently I have been making friends with the people over at Glass Magazine. By friends, I actually mean Facebook and Instagram friends. This of course will be remedied by me being awesome in their proximity and vice versa. Life goals people.

I’m especially enjoying the work of the Stylist, who works with Glass regularly, Katie Felstead. She is genius and makes everything from modern, edginess too romantic styles look brilliant. You know I don’t give accolades to other Stylist’s unless they are balls out amazing.

Back to this amazing editorial. Chanel is one of those amazing labels that every country understands. Say Chanel anywhere in the world (except maybe the deep amazon, though maybe there too) and it’s recognized as a brand with integrity, quality that costs big bucks.

Glass Magazine produced a wonderful Chanel editorial shoot that’s soft, beautiful and sexy. Giving us the sense of a gentle and delicate Chanel woman.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

ELLE UK June 2017 Lindsey Wixson by Gilles Bensimon

I LOVE this girl. Lindsey Wixson is not only one hell of a model, but a fighter for justice and the earth.

She’s also a current muse of Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel in case you’ve been sleeping) and is not only a great editorial model, but really tall, and rocks the runways. She’s infamous for her cute little tooth gap in the front and her ‘bee-stung lips’.

Now that I’ve given you her accolades, how about I give you the editorial? I loves Gilles Bensimon’s work. Truly, he’s a genius. Here he captures Lindsay in her favorite environment, nature.

Nikki Rich and B:Scott x Sarah Scott at Concept LA #LAFW #RunwayReport #HeathyrWolfe

I have been busier than Paris Hilton on Rodeo Drive this week with Los Angeles Fashion Week. First off I want to say to all the organizers and designers, you really came through this year. If Anna Wintour had come out she would have renewed faith in our LAFW. Ya’all are organized and really showing the fierce this year!

Here’s the rundown of Saturday, 3/9.

I went to the 5pm show for Nikki Rich and the 9pm show for B:Scott x Sarah Scott. I of course brought fellow fashionista and designer Amanda Christine of Aji, and later, HeathyrWolfe.com crew member Patrice Prince.

Nikki Rich was a delight. They really put their best fashion foot forward. I expected more rock n roll looks, but they went more into clean lines with superior draping and choices of material. Casual enough to be pret-a-porter but fierce enough for the diva in club land. I was pleasantly surprised at how full it was and was quickly seated.

The line came out and the runway was well done, professional and unique. I saw material laced with a cracked earth effect. This had an entirely pleasant addition bringing an elegance and originality to the collection. There were neutral colors in the collection but Nikki Lund added dashes of navy blue and deep wine red into the designs. Everything was casual chic and completely wearable, with a nice mix and matchability. Check out the line below;

Later that evening after I changed and returned for the B:Scott event. Running late I found out this event had hit capacity and then some. The gates were closed and the seats were full. Worried I was not going to get in I did last minute!! I squeezed into a VERY full room, thanks to Alyssa. (thank you so much for an amazing show).

B:Scott x Sara Scott entered the runway with a fierce attitude. Mixed with urban chic, heir designs are beyond standard ‘street wear’. Material contrasted beautifully with leathers, wool, cottons. Letterman jackets mixed with snood hats and satin suits in fire engine red. Sleek casual men’s wear graced the runway to cheers. Ending with a standing ovation, B:Scott was the winner of the evening.

What few pictures I did get are below.

Thanks again to Siren Studios, Concept LA and Alyssa and Mallory!
Stay tuned. More LAFW to come.
