Diesel Black Gold / SS16 Show / Wall Street, New York

Rock & roll boiled in my blood after attending Diesel Black Gold show this morning. The large warehouse feel with cold metal benches seated five rows of people. The gull of chatter and interviews died down when the upbeat music got the models marching down the white runway. DBG’s SS16 collection got me wishing summer wasn’t over. Mix of shirting, leather, sheer separates and dresses are perfect for transition between day and night looks.

Andreas Melbostad’s inspiration was an image of a girl wearing a men’s shirt (Vogue). His combination of womenswear and menswear fashion created a sophisticated refined collection. Sheer dresses and separates were paired with boots, oversized jackets and pants. The work overall was made into a cool girl must-have from an option of a dress overall to a buckled strap suiting and leather pant overall.

I would style the next IT girl in this collection. It’s all about confidence, boldness and courageousness.

Get Your Plaid On

The crave for checkers and tartan is on its high for Fall 2013. You don’t have to go gritty grunge, or maybe sometimes you do, to wear plaid. There are plenty of practical ways to dress it up or down.

In this Aver Report you can see how designers style plaid in their collections and how they’re worn in the streets. Enjoy!

Ashish: Funk You

Another designer who doesn’t make cookie-cutter garments. Every season his collection screams FUNK YOU. And that’s the reason why I adore him.

Ashish Gupta describes his style, “Sequins, glamour, sportswear and more sequins.”
