Carolina Herrera's Spring/Summer 2013 - One Word - Refinement


The moment you see this collection, you know it's Carolina Herrera! Elegant silhouettes and shirts with very masculine collars, you know it's her. I love this collection and the show for me was the best from New York Fashion Week, the movement of the models and the clothes went so well with the music, a modern adaptation of the piece "Sisters of the Moon" of Fleetwood Mac from 1979. The light colours, white and icy blue went amazing with this song, the orange lace and black tulle as well. Very few powerful colours (orange, black and a silver gray) and many subtle ones, made this collection full of refinement and femininity. The long skirts and dresses, the skirts over the ankle, the brocade print and the small belts, compliment the finesse of this collection, which reminds me of the women's fashion from 1910. 
If Diane von Furstenberg's collection was a bohemian one, this is extremely elegant! Two different designers, two different collection, but one single fact: for me they showed themselves in their collections the best out of all the designers there!

In momentul in care vezi aceasta colectie, stii ca este vorba de Carolina Herrera! Siluete elegante si camasi cu gulere masculine, stii ca este ea. Ador aceasta colectie, iar show'ul pentru mine a fost cel mai bun dintre toate ce au fost prezentate la New York Fashion Week, miscarea modelelor si a hainelor au fost intr'o armonie totala cu muzica, o adaptare moderna a piesei "Sisters of the Moon" de la Fleetwood Mac din anul 1979. Culorile deschise, alb si albastru inghetat s'au potrivit perfect cu aceasta melodie, dantela portocalie si tulleul negru de asemenea. Foarte putine culori puternice (portocaliu, negru si gri metalizat) si multe culori subtile au facut din aceasta colectie una plina de rafinament si feminitate. Fustele si rochiile lungi, fustele deasupra gleznei, imprimeul din brocard si curelele subtiri, au complimentat finetea acestei colectii, care imi aminteste de moda anilor 1910.
Daca colectia lui Diane von Furstenberg a fost una boema, aceasta este una extrem de eleganta! Doi designeri diferiti, doua colectii diferite, insa un lucru il au in comun: pentru mine sunt designeri care si'au expus cel mai bine stilul si pe ei insisi in colectiile lor fata de toti ceilalti designeri prezenti la saptamana modei din New York.

Diane Von Furstenberg's Spring/Summer 2013 - The Queen of Prints

A great collection for Spring/Summer 2013 from Diane von Furstenberg dominated by beautiful prints and drapes! Combined prints, draped skirts and tunics over pants, gorgeous and elegant jumpsuits, all with a bohemian vibe! Even though the bohemian feel it's very powerful, you can see that it has a certain elegance, specific to DVF. All the draping reminds me of the Ancient Rome and the skirts and dresses over pants of the Indian sari. Vibrant colours such as coral, yellow, blue, light green, purple, combined with more toned down colours, such as terracotta, black, white, navy. Light fabrics for the draped pieces and more structured ones for the tailored clothes. An amazing collection in which you can see extremely well Diane von Furstenberg's style.

O minunata colectie pentru primavara/vara 2013 din partea Dianei von Furstenberg dominata de imprimeuri superbe si drapaje. Imprimeuri combinate, fuste drapate si tunici peste pantaloni, jumpsuit'uri superbe, toate create pentru un spirit boem. Chiar daca sentimentul boem este atat de puternic, se poate observa ca are o eleganta anume, specifica lui DVF. Toate drapajele imi amintesc de Roma antica, iar fustele si rochiile peste pantaloni de sariul indian. Culori puternice precum corai, galben, albastru, verde deschis, mov, combinate cu culori ceva mai temperate cum este caramiziul, negrul, bleumarin si alb. Materiale fine pentru piesele drapate si ceva mai structurate pentru hainele cu croiala fixa. O colectie superba, in care se poate observa extrem de bine stilul lui Diane von Furstenberg!

Monique Lhuillier's Spring/Summer 2013 - Sea Colours

I'm back with pictures from Monique Lhuillier's show dominated by sea water colours! Great colorful pieces, mostly in the blue colour, prints that resembled fish skin, they looked wonderful on the runway! Tones of glitter, dark blue and gold, and very light fabrics, such as lace and chiffon! The collection had mostly dresses, medium and long ones, and some looks with long waisted pants! A very feminine collection, with beautiful vibrant colours! Enjoy!

M'am intors cu imagini din prezentarea lui Monique Lhuillier, dominata de culorile apei de mare! Piese colorate, in mare in albastru, paiete in albastru inchis stralucitor si auriu, imprimeuri ce aduc a solzi de peste si materiale fine, precum matasea si chiffonul, cam asa se prezinta colectia acestui designer. Compusa in mare parte din rochii si fuste, medii sau lungi, intalnim si pantaloni pana cu talie inalta sau pantaloni scurti! O colectie foarte feminina, cu culori superbe. Sper sa va placa!

Jason Wu's Spring/Summer 2013 - A Dream

As I've said earlier, I'm coming back with a post about Jason Wu's collection, by far my favourite! It has something that for me makes it special! It has lace, leather, light fabrics such as chiffon, the ending of the dresses and skirts is really cute (I myself have a skirt with that kind of ending), corsets combined with the upper part of a shirt, elegant prints, what more can you want. The colours are mainly black and white, a bit of beige, navy and coral. A beautiful collection!

Asa cum am spus mai devreme, ma intorc cu un post despres colectia lui Jason Wu, preferata mea de pana acum. Are ceva ce o face speciala pentru mine. Are dantela, piele, materiale fine precum chiffonul, iar rochiile si fustele sunt tare dragute, se termina cu dantela brodata (am si eu o fusta exact in genul asta), corsetele sunt combinate cu partea superioara a camasilor (arata tare interesant), imprimeuri elegante, ce poti sa ceri mai mult. Culorile in mare sunt dominate de negru si alb, insa intalnim si bej, bleumarin si corai. O colectie superba!

Live From the Runway

Yes, it's New York Fashion Week and guess what you can see it live on Youtube (here's the link Live From the Runway). So the designers are presenting their ready-to-wear collection for the spring-summer 2013, and I might say that they look very good. Less pastel colours, more vivid ones, black and grey, darker tones, for the fabrics lace and prints are still on the wave, even though you can see less floral prints and more splash ones, chiffon, silk, organza, tones of glitter and sparkles, it will be a great spring/summer! And the best thing is that we can see live a big part of the shows. The schedule is also on the channel and a countdown till the next show. 
Here I've selected some of the pieces that I liked from Charlotte Ronson, Alexander Wang (who had kind of a weird collection if you ask me) and Jill Stewart. My favourite collection so far are those of Jason Wu and Monique Lhuillier, I'll write about them really soon.

Da, este saptamana modei in New York si ce credeti, o puteti vedea in direct pe Youtube (uitati aici linkul Live From the Runway). Designerii isi prezinta colectiile de pret-a-porter pentru sezonul primavara-vara 2013, si nu pot sa spun decat ca arata promitator. Mai putine pasteluri (slava domnului, eu personal le detest, nu le consider culori), culori mai vii, negru si gri, tonuri ceva mai inchise, iar in ceea ce priveste materialele, dantela si imprimeurile sunt in continuare pe val, chiar daca nu mai sunt atat de multe imprimeuri florale, ci cele in care culoarea pare aruncata ca intr-un tablou, chiffon, matase, organza, o multime de paiete si materiale sclipicioase, o sa fie o primavara/vara cu adevarat geniala! Si de departe cel mai bun lucru este ca putem vedea in direct o mare parte din prezentari. Programul se gaseste afisat pe canal si exista chiar si o numaratoare inversa pana la urmatorul show.
Am selectat aici cateva piese care mi'au placut, din prezentarile lui Charlotte Ronson, Alexander Wang (care daca e sa ma intrebati, a avut o colectie tare ciudata) si Jill Stewart. Colectiile mele preferate pana acum au fost de departe cele al lui Jason Wu si Monique Lhuillier, despre care am sa scriu cat de curand.

Oscars 2012 Fashion

Hello there!

Ok, I know I'm writting about a post a month, me and my laziness, and I'm really sorry. Lately all my posts start with I'm sorry, I have to stop that :D. Anyway, I was wondering what to write in this posts, maybe about Japanese Street Fashion, but well, again, I was too lazy to search for photos. And in the morning I found out that last night were the Oscars, I think I live on another planet, I mean, come on not in a million years I would have guessed that the Oscars were handed last night. This is a first in many years. Ok, I should stop now. This post is not about what dress is a do and which one is a no, in this post I'll say what I like and dislike about a selection (a big one might I say) of dresses, so bare with me, I think it will be a long post, or not, well I've just started writting it :D
So lets begin.

Ok, stiu ca scriu un post pe luna, eu si lenea din mine, si zau ca imi pare rau. In ultima vreme vad ca mai toate posturile mele incep cu imi pare rau, scuze & co., cred ca trebuie sa incetez cu asta :D Revenind, ma intrebam despre ce as putea sa scriu in postul asta, poate despre street style japonez, dar ei bine, din nou, am fost mult prea lenesa sa caut poze. De dimineata, foarte de dimineata (eram la facultate), am aflat ca seara trecuta a avut loc decernarea premiilor Oscar, cred ca traiesc pe alta planeta, adica, nici intr'un milion de ani nu mi'ar fi trecut prin cap ca aseara au fost Oscarurile daca nu auzeam la facultate. Chestia asta nu mi s'a intamplat de foarte mult timp. Ok, sa nu o mai lungesc. Postul asta nu este despre care este cea mai frumoasa sau urata rochie, ci am sa va spun ce imi place si ce nu (dintr'o perspectiva pur obiectiva, nu stiu pe cine vreau sa pacalesc aici) despre o selectie (destul de mare as zice) de rochii, asa ca suportati'ma va rog, deoarece cred ca va fi un post lung, sau poate nu, adica abia am inceput sa'l scriu :D
Asa ca sa incepem.

I'll start with the big winner, Meryl Streep, and her Lanvin dress, which I like, I mean it looks good on her, even though I find it to be a little bit too goldish! Also I don't like the earings and the clutch. But except this 2 things is a good look!

Am sa incep cu marea castigatoare, Meryl Streep, si rochia ei Lanvin, care imi place, adica arata bine in ea, desi o gasesc a fi putin cam aurie pt. gustul meu! De asemenea, nu'mi plac deloc cerceii si clutch'ul, dar exceptand aceste 2 mici detalii este o tinuta foarte ok!

All I can say is gorgeous and no, not because the designer is a romanian one, Maria Lucia Hohan, but because the colour of the dress is beautifull, the drapping as well, the entire look is spot one (the hair is a bit messy though). So this one is an Oscar dress :D

Tot ce pot sa spun este superb si nu, nu pt. ca designerul este roman, Maria Lucia Hohan, dar pt. ca rochia are o culoare foarte frumoasa, croiala la fel, intreaga tinuta este intr'o armonie totala (parul este putin cam ravasit). Aceasta este o rochie pt. Oscar :D

This one, on the other hand is a mess! I mean Natalie Portman looks like a country girl in this dress which is not made for the Oscars at all, even though is a vintage Dior from 1954. Maybe if the polka dots were out of the picture it would have been better, and that silver necklace that looks so bad with this red dress. So for me this look is not good at all, well, except the hair, the makeup and the clutch.

Rochia asta, pe de alta parte este groaznica! Natalie Portman arata ca o fata venita de la tara in rochia asta, care clar nu este facuta pt. Oscaruri (sau cel putin nu pt. cele din prezent sau viitor), chiar daca este un vintage Dior din 1954 (da si rochiile vintage mai dau gres uneori). Poate daca bulinele ar fi lipsit, ar fi fost ceva mai bine, ah si colierul acela argintiu da atat de rau cu rochia rosie. Asa ca pentru mine acesta tinuta nu este cea mai inspirata, exceptand parul, machiajul si clutch'ul care nu sunt rele deloc.

Lets Start the Year with J.P Gaultier - Haute Couture

Hello there!

For my first post of this year, I thought I should return to the very begining of my blog, to the reviews on different collection, as I haven't had a post like this since ages.
This time is a haute couture collection - Jean Paul Gaultier for fall-winter 2011/2012. From all the haute couture collections this one is the far my favourite, even though for ready to wear was Karl Lagerfelds collection.
So I'll start with the colours. Like all the collections this year, black was the main colour and the other well only to complement this dark tone. You'll see in this collection grey, olive, red, navy blue and a touch of beige, purple, white, brown and silver & gold.
As for the fabrics we can see leather, fur and feathers in almost every garment, silk, lace, satin, chiffon, tulle, velvet, sequins and organza.
The clothes are extravagant as the designer used so much fur and feathers in them. We can see many luxurious coats, fur coats, some combined with feathers for a more dramatic & glamorous look, leather coats all combined with fur collars. There are also capes in this collection. The blazers and jackets are very tailored and worn with pencil skirts. The woman dresses most of them made out of chiffon, sequins, tulle and satin are accessorised with fur coats and feathers, give me (but well maybe it's just me) a south american/western vibe from the late 1800 and a bit of a parisian vibe from the same period. The trenches are transformed into chiffon dresses.
But what I really liked in this collection well is the mixing between women clothes and menswear. So the men suits are made of satin, which is a fabric for women clothes, and are associated with capes and fur coats, that have that aristocratic look from the 1600 era in England and Italy. All the men's clothes have a powerful feminine vibe in them starting with the fabrics and ending with the actual design, see the glitter blouses and the lace pants!
As for me my favourite looks you can see in the first 4 images the suit and the colourful dress!

Pt. primul meu post din acest an, m'am gandit ca ar fi cazul sa ma reintorc la inceputurile blogului meu, mai exact la reviewurile asupra colectiilor de moda, avand in vedere ca n'am mai avut un post de genul de secole.
De data aceasta este o colectie haute couture - Jean Paul Gaultier colectia de toamna-iarna 2011/2012. Dintre toate colectiile de haute couture este de departe preferata mea, chiar daca pt. pret-a-porter a fost cea a lui Karl Lagerfeld pt. Chanel.
Am sa incep cu culorile. Ca in majoritatea colectiilor din acest an, negrul a fost culoarea principala si celelalte nu au facut decat sa scoata in evidenta tonurile intunecate ale acesteia. Veti vedea in aceasta colectie gri, masliniu, rosu, bleumarin si un strop de bej, mov, alb, maro si auriu si argintiu.
In ceea ce priveste materialele avem pielea, blana si pene in aproape fiecare piesa vestimentara, matase, dantela, satin, chiffon, tulle, catifea, paiete si organza.
Cum designerul a folosit foarte mult blana si penele, hainele sunt extravagante. Putem vedea multe haine luxurioase, haine de blana, unele combinate cu pene pentru mai mult dramatism si glam, haine de piele combinate cu gulere de blana. De asemenea, intalnim si cape in aceasta colectie. Sacourile si jachetele cu croiala fixa, bine cambrate pe corp, purtate cu fuste creion. Rochiile, majoritatea dintre ele din chiffon, paiete, tulle sau satin sunt accesorizate cu haine de blana si pene, si imi dau senzatia (ei bine poate sunt doar eu) de haine western de pe la sfarsitul lui 1800 si asa o usoara tenta pariziana din aceeasi perioada. Paltoanele, de aceasta data, au fost transformate in rochii din chiffon.
Insa ceea ce mi'a placut cel mai mult la aceasta colectie a fost mix'ul dintre moda feminina si cea masculina. Asadar, costumele barbatesti sunt facute din satin, care este un material pt. haine de femei, si sunt combinate cu cape sau haine de blana, care aduc putin cu tinutele aristocratice din Anglia si Italia anilor 1600. Toate hainele barbatesti emana foarte multa feminitate incepand cu materialele si sfarsind cu designul in sine, vedeti bluzele sclipicioase si pantalonii din dantela!
In ceea ce ma priveste pe mine, tinutele mele preferate le puteti vedea in primele 4 imagini, costumul si rochia foarte colorata!

Selections for Fall/Winter 2011/2012

Hello there!

It passed alot since my last post, but I'm back! Unfortunately I was a bit busy, also the weather here is awful, it's so so cold, and I couldn't bring myself to post anything.
So a short post for today with mostly photos selected from different fall/winter collections presented at Paris Fashion Week, that reflect the best the fabrics, colours and lets say trends for this season. Some I've chosen because I found them to be very interesting, like Hermes and Mugler, and the rest well because I think you can find something similar in the stores, if you look hard enough, and also because I like them.

A trecut ceva vreme de la ultimul post, dar m'am intors! Din pacate am fost putin ocupata, apoi vremea de aici este ingrozitoare, este atat de frig, si nu prea am fost in stare sa ma adun ca sa postez ceva.
Asa ca un post scurt pt azi alcatuit in mare din fotografii selectate din diferite colectii de toamna/iarna prezentate la Paris Fashion Week, care reflecta cel mai bine materialele, culorile si sa zicem trendurile pt acest sezon. Unele le'am ales pt ca le'am gasit a fi tare interesante, precum Hermes si Mugler, iar restul pt ca m'am gandit ca veti gasi ceva similar in magazine, daca o sa cautati bine, si bineinteles pt ca mi'au placut.

Now the photos! (taken from
Si acum imaginile!



Glitter & Prints from Vivienne Westwood for F/W 2011/2012

Glitter and prints, this is what Vivienne Westwood brings to the table for her Ready-to-Wear F/W 2011/2012 collection. As she has accustomed us, again we can see bold, bright and colorful creations, different from those of the other designers. A combination of tribal & punk elements, with a strange makeup, that somehow makes me think of some egyptian dark witches or the african shamans, describes the best the style of Vivienne Westwood. After all the black and thoes very tailored collection, we needed something different, and that you know you can find it in Vivienne Westwoods collections.
For the colors we have gold, brown, orange, yellow, black, grey, some white, blue, burgundy and lots of prints, mostly in orange and brown.
Sequins dominate the podium, succeded by jersey, silk, tulle, velvet, wool and cotton.
As for the clothes, Vivienne Westwood suggests casual dresses, capes and voluminous blouses worn with high waisted pencil skirts or suits, sparkling jumpsuits, wool coats, skinny trousers in tones of gold or silver, 3/4 socks and tights with different leg colours, high waisted trousers, some knitwear, jumpsuits and day dresses in tribal prints, long skirts, for the night there are gold dresses and some black elegant ones, some dresses have exagerated proportions and the collection ends with a too safe wedding dress, in my opinion.
All the outfits are being worn with glittery gold or sparkling blue shoes and boots.
The clothes are draped and dominated by prints, some dresses have a very gothic look, for me very "Corps Bride" looking, all in all a nice collection.
The colours are not really me, I don't wear brown or orange (well except a brown bag that I've recently got) or prints, I like the draping, some pants, a skirt and the gold colour. That's it for me, I hope you'll like it.

Sclipici si imprimeuri, asta este ceea ce Vivienne Westwood aduce cu colectia sa pret-a-porter pentru toamna-iarna 2011/2012. Asa cum ne'a obisnuit, putem vedea din nou creatii curajoase, stralucitoare si pline de culoare, diferite de cele ale celorlalti designeri. O combinatie de elemente tribale si punk, cu un machiaj bizar, care ma face sa ma gandesc la niste vrajitoare egiptene sau la samanii africani, descriu cel mai bine stilul lui Vivienne Westwood. Dupa atata negru si colectii cu o croiala foarte rigida, aveam nevoie de ceva diferit, pe care stii ca il gasesti in colectiile lui Vivienne Westwood.
Ca si culori avem auriu, maro, portocaliu, galben, negru, gri, putin alb, albastru, rosu burgund si multe imprimeuri, majoritatea maro sau portocalii.
Paietele domina podiumul, urmate de jersey (tricot subtire), matase, tulle, catifea, lana si bumbac.
In ceea ce priveste hainele, Vivienne Westwood propune rochii lejere, pelerine si bluze voluminoase purtate cu fuste creion cu talie inalta sau cu costume, jumpsuituri stralucitoare, haine de lana, pantaloni skinny in nuante de auriu sau argintiu, sosete de 3/4 si ciorapi subtiri cu diferite culori pt fiecare picior, pantaloni cu talie inalta, ceva tricotaje, jumpsuituri si rochii de zi cu imprimeuri tribale, fuste lungi, pt noapte avem rochii aurii si cateva negre, mai elegante, unele rochii au proportii exagerate, iar colectia se termina cu o rochie de mireasa putin cam banala, in opinia mea.
Toate tinutele sunt purtate cu pantofi sau cizme in culori precum sclipici auriu sau albastru stralucitor.
Hainele sunt dominate de printuri, unele rochii au un aspect foarte gotic, pentru mine aduce a "Corps Bride", insa in final este o colectie interesanta.
Culorile nu sunt tocmai pt mine, nu port maro sau portocaliu (bine, exceptand ultima geanta pe care am cumparat'o, care este maro) sau imprimeuri, imi place cum sunt croite hainele, mai mi'au placut niste pantaloni, o fusta si auriul. Cam atat pt mine, sper sa va placa.

And now some pictures! (taken from

F/W 2011/2012 in a Japanese View - Junya Watanabe

Today we're going to make a trip into Asian fashion, more exactly into the Ready-to-Wear F/W 2011/2012 collection of Junya Watanabe. Maybe many of you wonder why didn't i chose Kenzo, or who is Junya Watanabe. Well I really didn't like Kenzo's collection, too many prints, too southern looks, too much brown, so for me it's a no. Now, why Junya Watanabe, well because he's different, because of his very technical and tailored collections and avantgarde looks, but mostly because he's asian and you can see that in his creations, after all this is a travel into Asian fashion.
For this season the designer had in mind a very structured, dark and boyish collection, in my opinion, dominated by leather, and mostly by the leather jackets in various forms. As you'll see in the pictures it resembles greatly with the look adopted by the japanese visual key bands this year (visual key is a style of rock in Japan, for more google it) and also with the type of clothes that Japanese street fashion lovers just adore. There's a bit of a tribal look in the collection (maybe inspired by the asian tribes) in a punk atmosphere combined with traditional japanese elements (taken from the famous kimono). We'll se some oversized dresses, many layers , a typical japanese style.
Again the collection is dominated by the black colour with a tiny bit of grey, brown and some leopard print for the fur collars.
For the fabrics, leather primarily, fur, knitwear and some cotton (after all is a Japanese designer, he needs a traditional fabric).
Regarding the clothes, the main trend that Watanabe launches with this collection is the leather jacket in different forms, from the very tailored jackets to kimono like jackets. As leather being the main fabric, it's not used only for the jackets, but also for the tunics and blouses, pants and even for the dresses, but in a softer version. The jackets are worn with short and medium pleated skirts with black tights and flat boots or military boots and the blouses and leather tunics and also the knitwear ones are worn with 3/4 leather pants or tights. There are some fur coats, fur collars worn with oversized soft leather dresses, and also some fur medium skirts.
At the end I like this collection, there are many looks that I would love to wear, and I see it as a success.

Astazi vom face o excursie in moda asiatica, mai exact in colectia pret-a-porter toamna/iarna 2011/2012 a lui Junya Watanabe. Poate ca multi dintre voi se vor intreba de ce nu am ales Kenzo, sau cine este Junya Watanabe. Ei bine chiar nu mi'a placut colectia prezentata de Kenzo, prea multe imprimeuri, un look mult prea texan, ca sa zic asa, prea mult maro, asa ca pt mine este un NU categoric. Acum, de ce Junya Watanabe, pt ca e diferit, datorita colectiilor foarte tehnice si foarte bine croite si tinutelor avantgardiste, dar in mare pt ca este asiatic si pt ca asta se observa in creatiile sale, este totusi o calatorie in culisele modei asiatice.
Pentru acest sezon designerul a avut in minte, dupa parerea mea, o colectie foarte structurata, sumbra si baietoasa, dominata de piele, dar mai ales de jachetele de piele in diverse forme. Asa cum veti vedea in imagini se aseamana tare bine cu look'ul adoptat de formatiile japoneze de visual key (e un curent de muzica rock din Japonia) in acest an si, de asemenea, cu hainele pe care niponii iubitori de street fashion pur si simplu le adora. Se observa si un fel de inspiratie tribala in colectie (avand drept sursa probabil triburile asiatice) intr'o atmosfera punk combinata cu elemnte traditionale japoneze (luate bineinteles din celebrul kimono). Vom vedea si niste rochii supradimensionate, multe layere, un stil tipic japonez.
Din nou colectia este dominata de negru, ca si culoare principala, cu un strop de gri, maro si imprimeu de leopard pentru gulerele de blana.
Ca si materiale, avem pielea in prim plan, urmata de blana, tricotaj si ceva bumbac (este totusi un designer nipon, asa ca are nevoie si de un material traditional).
In ceea ce priveste hainele, trendul principal pe care Watanabe il propune prin aceasta colectie este jacheta de piele in diverse forme, de la jachete cu croiala fixa la jachete care te duc cu gandul la kimono. Fiind principalul material, designerul nu se limiteaza in a folosi pielea doar pt jachete, ci si pt tunici si bluze, pantaloni si chiar pt rochii, insa intr'o versiune mai moale, mai maleabila. Jachetele sunt purtate cu fuste plisate, scurte sau medii, cu dres negru opac si cu ghete cu talpa joasa sau ghete militare, iar bluzele si tunicile de piele si tricotajele sunt purtate cu pantaloni 3/4 sau cu dres negru opac. Apar si cateva haine de blana, gulere de blana purtate peste rochii de piele supradimensionate, si mai sunt si cateva fuste de blana.
La final imi place aceasta colectie, sunt foarte multe tinute pe care le'as purta, si o gasesc a fi un succes.

And now lets see some photos (taken from
Si acum sa vedem cateva fotografii.

Dior Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Ready-to-Wear without Galliano

Today I'm going to talk a little bit about Dior's Ready-to-Wear F/W 2011/2012 collection and what trends they're trying to launch.
As you'll see in the photos, compared to Chanel's collection, which I've covered in the earlier post, this one has a more feminine style, softer tones and fabrics. It's lighter, not as theatrical as the collections that John Galliano presented in the past (as you might know he doesn't work for Dior anymore, due to some criminal offences he was fired), but still very Dior.
It seems that the theme for this collection was the Romantic Era in English poetry (the style of English poets as William Blake, Byron, Shelley), but for me resembles more to George Sand. I would say that is the masculine style from the 18th century reinterpreted in a contemporary vision. Also the fur collars that you'll see, some dresses and the makeup reminds me more of the '20s. Maybe it's just me, but I see this collection as a mix between the 18th century and the '20s, the bohemian masculinity of the English poets and the femininity from the '20s. Perhaps I've said something stupid, but that's my opinion.
Now, lets see what trends Dior proposed for this season. For the colours we have dark tones like black, grey (as you'll see, this winter most designers prefered black and grey as their primary colours), dark blue, navy blue, bordeaux, red, olive green, also we'll see some light colours, compared to Chanel, where we had mostly dark, as white, dusty pink, light blue (used for blouses and dresses).
To show even more the romanticism of the collection the fabrics are very feminine, silk, velvet, fur, feathers, chiffon, tulle, lace, leather and some wool and knitwear.
As for the clothes we have long redingotes (not a big fan), knickerbockers (more exactly short pants), short skirts worn with chiffon blouses, velvet jackets, the dresses and most of the outfits have either a fur collar or a fur coat, also chiffon dresses, and voile dresses, large hats (don't like them at all), long leather boots with platform and high heels.
It's a great collection for those of you who love that type of clothes, for me it's not really my thing. There are about 2 or 3 outfits that I like, the leather boots are great, also I found some nice shorts and the blouses are tottaly me, the rest not really.

Astazi o sa vorbesc putin despre colectia pret-a-porter pentru toamna-iarna 2011/2012 a casei Dior si despre trendurile pe care aceasta incearca sa le lanseze.
Asa cum veti vedea in imagini, in comparatie cu colectia casei Chanel, pe care am prezentat'o intr'un post anterior, aceasta adopta un stil mult mai feminin, culori si materiale mai usoare. Este mai gratioasa, nu la fel de teatrala ca si colectiile pe care John Galliano le prezenta in trecut (asa cum probabil stiti, acesta nu mai lucreaza pentru Dior, datorita unor "divergente" pe care le'a avut cu legea a fost concediat), dar totusi specifica Dior.
Se pare ca tema pentru aceasta colectie a fost reprezentata de Era Romantica din poezia britanica (stilul unor poeti englezi ca William Blake, Byron, Shelley), insa pentru mine aduce mai mult a George Sand. As spune ca este stilul masculin al secolului al 18lea reinterpretat intr'o viziune contemporana. De asemenea, gulerele de blana pe care le veti vedea, unele rochii si machiajul imi cam amintesc de anii '20. Poate mi se pare mie, dar vad aceasta colectie ca pe un mix intre secolul al 18lea si anii '20, masculinitatea boema a poetilor englezi si feminitatea anilor '20. Poate ca am spus o prostie, dar asta e parerea mea.
Acum sa vedem ce trenduri propune Dior pentru acest sezon. In ceea ce priveste culorile avem tonuri inchise ca negru, gri (asa cum o sa vedeti, in aceasta iarna majoritatea designerilor prefera negrul si griul drept culori dominante), albastru inchis, bleumarin, bordeaux, rosu, verde masliniu, insa avem si culori mai deschise, in comparatie cu Chanel unde au predominat culorile inchise, precum alb, roz prafuit, bleu deschis (folosite in mare pentru rochii si bluze).
Pentru a scoate in evidenta si mai tare romantismul colectiei materialele sunt si ele foarte feminine: matase, catifea, blana, pene, chiffon (in romana ar veni panza, dar nu stiu de ce ma duce cu gandul la carpe de sters praful asa ca il las ca atare), tulle, dantela, piele si ceva lana si tricotaj.
In ceea ce priveste hainele avem redingote lungi (nu sunt mare fan), pantaloni scurti, fuste scurte purtate cu bluze din chiffon, jachete din catifea, rochiile si majoritatea tinutelor contin fie un guler de blana, fie o haina de blana, de asemenea, rochii din chiffon si voile, palarii mari (care nu imi plac deloc), cizme lungi din piele cu platforma si toc inalt.
Este o colectie geniala pentru cei care iubesc acest gen de haine, insa nu si pentru mine. Sunt vreo 2-3 tinute care mi'au placut mult, cizmele din piele sunt foarte tari, am gasit si niste pantaloni scurti draguti si bluzele care sunt exact stilul meu, dar restul nu chiar.

Chanel Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Ready-to-Wear

Hello there!!

So I've decided to make a little review on Chanel's Ready-to-Wear F/W 2011/2012 in this post, cuz the fall is here, soon the winter will be too so i wanted to show you the visions that some designers had for this season.
I'm gonna start with Chanel, cuz i love the creations of Karl Lagerfeld, and later on I'll post the work of some other designers as well.
Karl Lagerfeld decided to go on a chic masculine style dominated by black and grey (2 of my fav colours), there's also a bit of red and white. We have some classic Chanel silhouettes and a lot of knitwear (I must say that I'm not a big fan of knitwear).
From what you'll see in the photos the main trends that Karl Lagerfeld proposed are: for colours, mostly black and grey, and as for clothes, voluminous jackets, blazers (the jackets are worn over the blazers), skinny jeans, leggings, skirts over velvet leggings, masculine pants and suits, luxurious jumpsuits, some capes (they make me think of knights) and as for the fabrics knitwear is almost everywhere, tweed, velvet, some silk and lace. So a very boyish collection with a powerfull rock vibe.
Don't know why but this collection reminds me of the Japanese street fashion, visual key and the creations of Japanese designers. Is one of my fav collections from Chanel so far, totally my style, dark colours, many layers, oversised jackets, blazers, skinny jeans.
I just luv it. Hope u'll like it2.

Am decis sa fac un mic review asupra colectiei pret-a-porter (sau "gata de purtat" cum ar veni la noi) pt toamna-iarna 2011/2012 a casei Chanel, pt k a venit toamna, in curand va veni si iarna asa ca am vrut sa va arat ce propun unii designeri pt acest sezon.
O sa incep cu Chanel, pt ca iubesc creatiile lui Karl Lagerfeld, si mai incolo o sa postez si creatiile altor designeri.
Karl Lagerfeld s'a centrat pe un stil chic masculin dominat de negru si gri (2 dintre culorile mele preferate), regasindu'se si un strop de rosu si alb. De asemenea cateva siluete clasice ale casei Chanel si foarte multe tricotaje (desi tb sa spun ca nu sunt un mare fan al tricotajelor).
Din ceea ce o sa vedeti in poze principalele trenduri pe care Karl Lagerfeld le propune sunt: pt culori, in mare negru si gri, iar pt haine, jachete voluminoase, sacouri (jachetele fiind purtate peste sacouri), skinny jeans, colanti, fuste purtate peste colanti din catifea, pantaloni cu croiala masculina si costume, jumpsuituri somptuoase, cateva pelerine (care ma fac sa ma gandesc la cavalerii din Evul Mediu), iar pt materiale domina tricotajul, tweedul, catifeaua si ceva matase si dantela. Asadar o colectie foarte baietoasa cu o puternica tenta rock.
Nu stiu de ce dar aceasta colectie imi aminteste de street fashion'ul nipon, de visual key si de creatiile designerilor din Japonia. Este una dintre colectiile mele preferate de la Chanel, fiind total pe stilul meu, culori inchise, multe layere, jachete supradimensionate, sacouri, skinny jeans.
Pur si simplu o iubesc. Sper sa va placa si voua.
