With Paris Fashion Week coming to a close, we have taken an interest in two of our most acclaimed designers, Stella McCartney and Saint Laurent. Just as we have seen in other Spring 2014 runway show’s this season, these two designers who both showed on the same day, couldn’t be more different in their entire presentation.
Stella McCartney made quite the statement with her collection by exemplifying an energetic ode to femininity with a contemporary twist. The show was confident with models strutting the runway in fluid lace-detailed dresses that fell to the hip effortlessly, sheer skirts that flashed a little thigh and plunging necklines that provided the perfect amount of sex appeal. “No matter what you wear from Stella – whether it’s a dress or a tracksuit – you feel a sense of elegance without having to try,” said Cara Delevgine, who walked in the show amongst other famous supermodels.
Runway Rock n’ Roll
Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane had a more steadfast approach satisfying his guilty rock n’ roll pleasure with a collection full of sexy separates and masculine silhouettes. The variety of prints used in the collection left the audience guessing with each new outfit that entered the runway.

Sneakers are back with the new Saint Laurent Court Classics Collection. Saint Laurent has updated their house classics with a complete line of several styles to choose from; smooth leather, suede or studded; bicolor or solid versions; high top or low. While all styles have a visible logo, the look is minimal and clean, paying respect to the vintage rubber soled sneakers.
The Fall/Winter 2013 collection is available at the Saint Laurent boutique inside The Shops at Crystals.
Just like that, another batch of gorgeous Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collections hit the runway and leaving us wanting more. With Milan Fashion Week coming to a close, we reflect on our five favorite trends from Italy:
1. Sporty Chic - With the sporty trend already embraced during New York Fashion Week, Milan designers focused on adding a more athletic touch to an already feminie look. Case in point, Prada adding a sporty detail like leg warmers while Emilio Pucci adds sparkley details and feminine shapes to sporyt wardrobe basics.
2. 3D Florals - Florals for spring and summer is nothing new but Milan fashion designs Dolce & Gabbana ad Marni fully embraced the trend that will blossom all season long!
3. Let’s Rock! - Milan Fashion Week pushed the envelope with a rocker chic looks for spring and summer featuring fringe, leather and of course sexy cut outs. Versace and Roberto Cavalli lead the pack wth these gorgeous yet daring looks.
4. Bling - One of the biggest trends we saw for spring/summer 2014 was the use of embellishments. Each collection impressive us more and more as the week progressed as designers seem to follow the same philosophy when it came to bling–go big or go home.
5. Bold Hues - As always, spring runways are full of light and bright colors and this season is no exception. Several of our famed Italian designers are playing up the punch and injecting color in a big way just like Fendi and Gucci!

After countless amounts of shows, hairspray bottles used, models cat-walking down the runway and 2 of our favorite New York designers’ shows, Donna Karan and Nanette Lepore, New York Fashion Week has come to an end. As we jump the Atlantic sea to London today, we're reflecting on what the Big Apple has served us these past 8 days!
On the catwalk, some trends emerged early:
Donna Karan returned to her urban roots for spring, delivering a beautiful collection featuring languid dresses slung with leather belts at the hips, softly constructed coats and jackets that slipped on like a robe, an inviting palette of sea blues and warm, sunbaked browns.
While Nanette Lepore drew inspiration flowing from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du mal, Nanette cites with neo-romanticism as her biggest inspiration for her Spring/Summer 2014 collection with deep reds, soft elegant blues and clean chic whites.
