Backstage at 'Boulevard CHANEL' Spring/Summer 2015


Attending CHANEL's 'Paris - Salzburg' Métiers d'Art presentation on December 2nd in Salzburg, a little throwback to last September: The Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear show transported us to a typical Parisian boulevard miraculously erected under the glass dome of the Grand Palais, where 80 models casually strolled past the "Boulevard Chanel's" facades while donning the collection's myriad looks.
 




The collection is decidedly optimistic and rich with a variety of propositions that Karl Lagerfeld used to set the tone right from the start: these Chanel women are free-spirited and daring; they progress far beyond mere social norms; they are independent, modern and active, in the very image of Gabrielle Chanel. Firmly rooted in their day and age, they walk the streets of major cities with long, confident strides.

With their tweed pantsuits accessorised by vibrant silk neckties, these professional women are a perfect blend of masculine and feminine. Their elegant, comfortable style is inspired by menswear with double-breasted blazers and boxy jackets, cuffed wide-leg trousers and flat boots. The base remained feminine however, through a palette of vibrant colors (orange, pink, purple, blue, green) and flamboyant prints (florals, watercolor prints) interpreted on blouses, neckties and scarves, as well as boots and loafers. The skirt suit was paired with printed fabric boots; soft, flowing blouses were punctuated with a pointed, elongated collar, and a tennis stripe adorned generous cuffed bermuda shorts to give them an urban flair. Open derby shoes closed by an ankle strap appeared in gold and black leather, black and white leather, as well as black satin versions. Chanel's iconic colors of black, white and navy served as the foundation of this easy-to-wear wardrobe.






From long tweed coats lined with printed silk to military-inspired khaki suede jumpsuits, a sailor stripe knit that is as fresh a look in the city as it is at the beach, gauzy blouses, lace and dresses embroidered with small scale-like tiles interspersed with tiny flowers, summer of 2015 will focus on the winds of freedom that blew during the years 1968-1970. The whole collection is a play on proportions, layering and transparency. Immaculate white blouses with wide collars are cinched with a gold belt to give the bermuda short a feminine touch.

The collection's accessories added a whimsical, humorous twist to its message of freedom: clutches were stamped with messages like "Féministe mais Féminine" and "Make Fashion not War.” A new bag incorporating all of the codes of the Chanel jacket (tweed, braid, buttons) made its debut with soft leather handles that allow it to be worn over the shoulder or tied around the waist.

'Lips & Boys' by TOM FORD Beauty


'Lips & Boys' by TOM FORD - From Black Friday, November 28, through Cyber Monday, December 1, the beloved Mr. Ford is launching a collection of his luxurious rouges in minis on tomford.com Just in time for all the holiday parties you will hit, they are fabulously chic, petite, and adorable and perfectly suited for the tiniest of clutches.




This Lips and Boys limited-edition 50-shade lipstick collection is named after all the men in Mr. Ford’s life men that he loves and admires, from his partner, Richard (Buckley), to Academy Award–winning actor Colin (Firth), and more. As Ford stated and posed the question, “I like the idea of lipsticks named after boys. Why commit to one when you can have several?” These ultra-creamy lipsticks and get a “boy” or two for yourself at Tom Ford, or at these retailers on December 1 only: Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdale’s. But if you happen to miss it altogether, don’t fret you’ll get another chance starting December 26. Just hope that the boy you want is still around and available …



Richard, Orlando, Wes, Leonardo, and Mathhew

50 miniature (or as Ford calls them, clutch-sized) lipsticks in his Estée Lauder-licensed beauty line. On Dec. 26, it will reappear in-store in 200 of the brand’s 400 global doors, and in 100 doors in North America. And make no mistake: Ford is determined to build his beauty brand into an economic powerhouse rivaling that of corporate siblings Clinique, MAC Cosmetics and Estée Lauder.


“I’d like to take it to a $3 billion business, and I’m not kidding at all,” Ford said. The brand’s volume is currently estimated at $370 million, according to industry sources. “I’m as serious about the beauty side of my business as I am about women’s wear and men’s wear and every product I do. I think MAC is a $3 billion brand, and I want to take [my brand] there. We want to be one of the top five luxury brands in the world. And I think you get there by doing innovative, original things. Launching 50 shades of lipstick at once is already innovative, as is naming them after boys and making them miniature. People carry teeny-tiny little bags today, and are trying to fit their iPhone, money and a key. I think the idea of a small bag is modern, and you need to be able to fit a lipstick into that small space. It seems that there’s a trend these days to miniaturize things.” - Tom Ford

Beauty has long been a topic of interest for Ford. “Back when I was working on shows, going back to the early Gucci days, I’d spend days on [the runway beauty] looks, because that’s your character for the season,” he said. “The hair and makeup and perhaps your shoes really give you your character.”

The Campaign



My favourite out of this line - It's Italian for "teal" and one of the signature shades in the new Gucci Beauty cosmetics collection. Vibrant and sensual, "Iconic Ottanio" dials up the drama. Where and when is up to you.

The Magnetic Color Shadow Mono debuts with nineteen diverse single-tone eyeshadows. The complete palette is composed of iconic colors from Gucci’s fashion archives and modern hues lifted directly from the runway show. Each formula is saturated with pigment and each finish is fine-tuned for a signature eye look.

'Multi-fur Patchwork by GUCCI Spring/Summer 2015'


Giannini’s spring collection went into that era, rinsed it clean of eau-de-Glastonbury, and polished it up, Italian style. She described it as “an evolution from fall” a sensible decision, because that’s when she introduced sixties A-line silhouettes, which have obviously done well for the brand.
