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.

Prada SS 2012 Japanesque

Japanese fashion has been surrounding me lately. Even Prada shows its take on japanesque trends with the platform shoes you can see in the SS 2013 show. Thought I was never going to mention it, but I wore platform sneakers when I was 8: navy leather with black foam core sole and a touch of white detail. Seeing platforms on the runway brought me back nostalgia of my beloved shoes which I wore down to the ground.

I am, surprisingly, loving the crinkled socks the models are striding in. Platform shoes on top of the geisha sock look futuristic and comfy at the same time. The soft-leather socks continue from the platform of the shoe and create a boot, but with a light-weight feel. Poppy flower appliques are also among of my favorite details from the collection. The little flowers not only add a spin on a Baroque trend, but also add a cute factor to the look
