3 FROM 1. THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME.


CARVEN PRE-FALL 2015 is indeed the final collection of Guillaume Henry for the French label but for sure he wanted to leave his mark considering the occasion. The designer that now moved at Nina Ricci, was not afraid to play a little bit more this time with menswear inspired styles, 
plenty of details and a few ladylike accents. In the end, what one can notice is that everything was perfectly balanced to the point where we can one more time think about about new ways to 
include men-inspired garments into our daily wardrobe. Or just simply shop at least 60% of Carven's 
collection and think pre-fall on the fast-forward mode.

THE DREAM BUY


Is it possible, due to the multitude of IT bags that will hit the shelves on the following weeks to call Carven's Multicolored calf St. Sulpice shoulder bag the new fashion trophy? Enclosed in a practical boxy shape, the stripe design certainly promises to give a new meaning to classic and the gold frame simply makes shure the wearer remains in the spotlight. This is the a bag to cherish.

Alessandro Dell'Aqua always had a thing for making women look sophisticated without making an effort. A little bit childish with tons of ladylike appeal, so were his silhouettel for its Pre-Fall 2015
collection. What made the diference this time was the Hollywood feel and the 40's inspired garments.

ACNE STUDIOS PRE-FALL 2015




Is the uniform for Pre-Fall 2015 going to be feminine and sporty at the same time? Is is going to be based on traditional fabrics? Are we all going to see fashion only in houndstooth, tweed, wool, silk and shearling? Looking closely at Acne Studios collection dedicated to the season I started to think so and also to believe that Jonny Johansson, the house's Creative Director put the finger on it.
In other words: knitwear is going to be wrapped, Shetland wool coats are going to be fastened with a large pin, pants are going to be cropped and gilets are going to have oversized pockets.
I believe we got ourselves a pretty good Pre-Fall in front of us.

No doubt about it, "je ne sais quoi" for Pre-Fall 2015 equals pretty much with Nina Ricci. It rarely happens to me to say that I cannot wait for fall to come instead of summer but this is the effect this
exquisite collection had on me. I have to hand it to French house for mixing to perfection, once again, elegance and ease.

BEAUTY CUES. ON THE FABULIST.


Polyphenol C15 has been on my list for quite a white. This revolutionary range that comes from the cult French label Caudalie is packed with natural ingredients and promises to detox when you sleep and work its magic as anti-wrinkle and anti-oxidant during the day.
Just keep in mind that free radicals are the main cause of skin aging and they are responsible for 4 out of 5 wrinkles. Should I ad that Polyphenols are 10.000 times more active than Vitamin E?
