PARIS IN ANTWERP

In Cities, Fashion, I like on 31/10/2013 at 09:16

All the fashionable young French brands are having a shop in Antwerp, and all of them are in the same street.

The Schuttershofstraat, where you will find also the stores as HERMES, BURBERRY, MONCLER, COCODRILLO, DELVAUX AND OTHER.

The ones I am talking about are typical french new wearable fashion.

CHRISTIAN DIOR FALL-WINTER COLLECTION 2013/2014

In Fashion, I like, Paris on 04/07/2013 at 23:58

CHRISTIAN DIOR

DIOR COUTURE 2013/2014

I am a lover of the beautiful and why shouldn’t I be, and why should I be afraid of telling it.

I have the eye to distinguish beauty from something else.. Is it being pretentious… I don’t think so. It is my reality.

Why do I think something is beautiful I don’t know.. Feeling, emotion, loving, attraction……

Sometimes I need some explanation to open my eyes to novelty and that is what happened in the case of Raf Simons for the Christian Dior Haute Couture collection.

My best friend Mimi was invited to see the collection last monday and of course I was interested by what my compatriot was doing for this third Couture collection.. At first glance at the images, I didn’t like… Yesterday I went to see the video of the show on http://www.style.com and was amazed by what I saw and I have been reading the comments of Tim Banks about the show, and indeed with some information I understood what the collection is about and again BRAVO for mister Simons for this new approach on couture..

I am sure that this collection will be worn by woman all over the world who have the panache and personnality to wear these creations in the same way they wear a jeans and a white T..

AVEC STYLE.

I show you some of the pieces I most love.

Thank you for reading this post.

COLLECTIONS OF BROOCHES.

In Collecting, Fashion, I like, Quick tips on 02/10/2012 at 13:23

We are very proud at WWW.COLLECTIONSOF.COM to present you our new idea about collecting.

Brooches are the new items that we propose for sale.

We are making collections and sell them the way we propose them by theme or colour or genre. These small items can easily rejuvenate outfits that need some updating or you could add them on a LBD or on top of buttons on a shirt. Our aim is to make collections that are statements and should be worn on outfits in a non traditional way.They date from the 1930s to the present. Although most of them are from the 1960s to the 1990s. And some of them are Victorian.I show you some examples of collections of brooches that are ready to be worn.

These brooches are for sale at collectionsof. for between 100 and 150 dollar per set.

For information please contact me on my mail address thehousewhisperer.be@gmail.com

ALBER ELBAZ: GENIUS OF SIMPLICITY AND BAROQUE.

In Fashion, I like, Paris on 26/09/2012 at 11:54

 

 

So much into what is coming for S/S 2013 that I almost forgot that fall 2012 is just starting and winter is yet to come. No problem when I look at this beautiful collection from Alber Elbaz for LANVIN.

Please enjoy this chosen pictures with me.

VERONIQUE BRANQUINHO.

In Fashion, I like, Paris on 26/09/2012 at 10:37

I am not a fashion connoisseur. It is only love at first sight. I have a coup de coeur and I’m in love. Well I am very much fanatic about the superb collection of Veronique Branquinho whom was the first to open Paris Fashion Week and whaouw what a start

I leave to other people to describe the collection. I can only show pictures of what is a collection of rare beauty and simplicity, wearable and super chic. I see much of my friends wearing pieces of this collection, because it is much their personality.

Let’s start with pictures.

VERONIQUE BRANQUINHO.

These clothes are all in simplicity and reminds me of the GUCCI show in Milan. this collection has the same pared down look as found in the couture of the sixties.Only references no copying. Influences by Mme. Grés and ancient Greece in the fluidity of the garments. I don’t know, but it is what jumps into my mind.. I’m lyric about this collection and proud that she is doing so well and again a great Belgian talent on fashion firmament.

To wear armbands on the upper arm can be a bit ordinary but here in this collection it is completely right and even chic especially on top of the white shirt and in fact with all other clothes…. Trendsetting…. I think.

BYE BYE CROCODILE, HELLO FASHION.

In Fashion on 14/09/2012 at 12:10

Polo‘s with crocodile logo I believe that we all have them in our closets. Nice for week ends but not more that exclusive as Fred Perry, Ralph Lauren , Abercrombie and Fitch and a multitude of brands have the same models and colours but of course their own logo.

Ralph Lauren and A&F have their fashion collections to show what their style is.

That is what Lacoste is also doing now and brilliantly.

When I first looked at the collection of Felipe Oliviera Baptista for Lacoste I thought immediately about André Courrèges and Pierre Cardin in the sixties.

Clothes inspired by sports of course such as Rugby, skiing,bowling and mountain motoring made a very wearable and urban collection.

Bravo Lacoste, You are refreshing.

MONIQUE LHUILLIER.

In Fashion, I like on 14/09/2012 at 07:48

Seen in New York Fashion Week the ready to wear collection of Monique Lhuillier is one of the collections that I like the most.

Classical and feminine. Using  black and white prints and digital prints with aquatic themes.

Her “robes du soir” are very chic.

Dresses are her specialty and it is the most feminine garment in which she excels.

MONIQUE LHUILLIER.

And true this is.

Have a nice end of the week and a wonderful week end.

In Fashion on 10/09/2012 at 10:40

I like very much the month of September as it became the new August. I spent the week end at Het Zoute at the Belgian coast. AMAAAAAAZING  weather, all day long at the beach with my friends, swimming in the sea, walking endlessly, really great fun.

Also September is the month where in the big fashion cities the collections for S/S. 2013 are shown. Beginning in New York.

First day of the collections, I show you some pictures of the designers I like.
