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.

‘Etro’ for What Ails you, 2013/14 Fall/Winter Collection

Etro Fall Winter by Mario Testino

ETRO Fall Winter 2013 by Mario Testino

After covering Chanel and giving the classic side of fashion for fall, it seemed appropriate to give you ladies and gents an eyeful of Fall madness as well.

The ETRO label has always had an eye for creativity in design. Giving us a taste of their brilliance for fall, their designs encompass color and print with angular edges and futuristic diva-tude. They are all about flair and dare and leave the conventional behind.

Helmed by Gimmo Etro, who started the label in 1968, these designs are an alternative to the sullen colors of fall we often see. Think of ETRO as the cure to all your fall blues, scarlet’s and blacks.

Think you can embrace the insanity? ETRO does too. Check out the runway below.
