Max Mara Pre-Fall 2015 Collection

Fashion

The vision of Achille Maramotti, wherein the industrial process supports the production of high quality designer clothing that later became part of the ready-to-wear concept, continues to this day, particularly when we look at the latest Max Mara pre-fall 2015 collection that’s been released. A proper fashion show was staged in Chelsea, wherein the company known today as Max Mara Fashion Group made it clear that it is making its mark on the arts world, sponsoring the opening party of the new Whitney Museum of Art in New York. The collection itself was inspired by the museum’s artistry, as well as the neighbourhood it has been located in. There’s something of The Roxy in there, along with the Seventies heyday. We’re looking at steel and dark alleys, grey weather and ivory whites. It’s a mostly darker line-up we are treated to as Max Mara brings out the ultra-suede padded coats with fox fur lining, along with bobcat motifs. Yet it’s the blacks and browns and the final crisp crimson that truly set the collection’s tone.

Max Mara Pre-Fall 2015 Collection

Since we are currently in the throes of winter and speaking about a pre-fall collection, it might be best to start off with a rather warm ankle length black dress coat, with four buttons and triple pocket lapels. It’s a gorgeous silhouette and certainly worth having, particularly with the frightful weather seen across the northern part of the world. The wet hair look and natural waves continue to show up on the runway, but the bare face is replaced with the red lips, wherein adding any other makeup product to the visage would be a sin unto itself. The deep red rose color of the lips is certainly one to draw attention.

Speaking about coats, the belted wraparound is rather perfect and oh-so-chic, with its length touching the ankles, the slit from the opening showing just enough leg while the feet are adorned with slightly bulky half boots that do little for aesthetics but look very comfortable indeed. The material alone is gorgeous, while the deep V at the neck lends a touch of sensual to the overall outfit. Add a warm tuque to the mix and you have one entirely too appealing garment. Don’t forget the blood red lipstick!

The coats continue with the animal fur, with the mink and the fox lining worn over a rather brightly glittering silver mini dress that seems to have no shape but lots of style. The boots are a stark contrast to the fashionable affair, lending a note of comfort to the outfit while also keeping a touch of chunky femininity. Clubbing or a night on the town, this look works for you, complete with the wet hair parted from the middle and waving down to past the shoulders, and red lips on a face wherein you do not see any other accessories, including earrings.

There’s something rather school-girlish about the next look, complete with black shiny shoes, knee high socks and a warm tuque for the winter days. A longer black sweater has the darkness of it all counteracted with a bright silver miniskirt that is barely visible below the sweater that appears to be more of a dress itself. It’s a stark look and complete with the red lips and wet or oily looking hair.

If we’re talking schoolgirl, the same shoes and socks can also be added to the lovely and rather warm look, with its open jacket, the cowl neck on dark grey sweater, the shiny leather back and the warm hat worn over wavy hair and face adorned with red lipstick that really sticks out from the otherwise bare face. The midi skirt is also rather interesting, lending the bleak look more of a mature tone overall.

The maturity is shown throughout the Max Mara pre-fall 2015 collection, making its mark on most pieces and looking truly fashionable for the beginning of fall. The grey colors particularly are attention grabbing, with their shiny fabrics and easy flow against the body. Loose-fitting suit sets, with grey belts worn over, complete with sleeveless fur jackets and matching leather handbags are all the rage these days it seems, while the super large sunglasses are here to stay a while. Add a lighter shade of grey gloves to the mix and you have a rather classy, positively posh outfit to walk down the streets in. Positively gorgeous!

Juicy Couture Spring 2015 Collection

Fashion

The Juicy Couture spring/summer 2015 collection takes us to the poolside, letting us enjoy the warm and sunny weather of Palm Springs, California. The LA based brand taps supermodels Cato Van Ee and Camille Rowe to present its stylish offerings for the new season, from lovely printed overalls and summer-ready bikini pieces to boho-chic maxi dresses and delicate lace designs, accessorized with eye-catching metallic jewelry pieces and stylish boxy bags. Colorful, diverse and extremely free-spirited, this stunning collection features all the necessary details and clothing pieces for you to create memorable boho-chic, Seventies-inspired and sporty looks with girly touches.

Juicy Couture Spring 2015 Collection

You can literally feel the warm sun rays caressing your own skin as looking through the spanking new Juicy Couture spring/summer 2015 campaign. It’s both in the beautiful backdrop of the images and the interesting mishmash of colors and prints of the designs showcased. Like the majority of the brands, Juicy Couture also praises the ‘70s fashion this summer, launching a collection drenched in the laid-back bohemian style. Think beautiful maxi dresses with wildflower and butterfly prints, as well as printed jumpsuits and matchy-matchy two pieces, like the tailored shorts teamed with a lovely sleeveless blouse. The bellbottom jeans, the high-waisted shorts, loose lace-up printed tops, the vintage denim rompers are other Seventies inspired pieces you can find in the collection.

Still, diversity plays an important role in the Juicy Couture spring 2015 collection, as we discover other styles too, like sporty chic and feminine designs. Talking of the latter, we can’t miss the delicate mini lace, crochet and ruffled dresses coming in juicy shades. Accessorized with glam heeled sandals and golden jewelry pieces they look so perfect for special cocktail parties.

We can also notice a subtle nautical theme in certain designs like the preppy tennis sweater, the striped blazer and some pants. Then again denim plays an important role in the collection and it’s quite logical, as hardly can we imagine the Seventies fashion without some ripped jeans, vintage denim pieces and jean shorts.

Crisscross Lacing: The New Spring 2015 Fashion Trend

Fashion

Crisscross lacing is among the hottest spring/ summer 2015 fashion trends, appearing not only on footwear options for creating dazzling lace-up designs, but also acting as the primary accent for a range of clothing pieces presented by fashion giants. Inspired from the common sneaker styles, lacing acts as an amazing detail for adding extravaganza and seductiveness to stylish corsets, flowing blouses, dresses and even knitted sweaters. Some of them carry distinctive ‘70s style inspirations, while others stand out with the dramatic and edgy looks they manage to create. Check out some of the coolest designs with crisscross lacing and learn how to wear clothing with lace-up details in the new fashion season!

Crisscross Lacing: The New Spring 2015 Fashion Trend

Oversized and Bold Lace-Up Designs

While in the majority of cases lace-up details act as small accents for complementing unique fashion designs, others come in more attention-grabbing forms being the primary thing you notice in a piece of clothing. Thus, in case of Gucci lace-up details come oversized for a bolder effect, looking especially cool in combination with the Seventies denim pieces. Used in the color of white, these details perfectly complement the denim dress and the denim jacket, holding together the slashes on the back sides of the jacket and the deep V neck of the dress. The same big lace-up details have also been combined with more sophisticated clothing pieces, like the Crimson lace dress, the white lace top and the bottle green leather dress. Here, they come in the same colors as the pieces, perfectly blending in with the background.

Sensual and Unique Lacing

Riccardo Tisci’s spring 2015 collection was memorable and jaw-dropping and lovely lacing details used surely contributed to the uniqueness of the designs presented. They look more sensual and feminine here, embellishing the deep V-necks and the unexpected slits on the midriff of the dresses and tops. Especially romantic is the airy white see-through top with the lacing combined with the tiny eyelets. We also love the corset-esque look lacing creates appearing on the front part of the white and black tops. Lacing was also the key detail for the footwear options, which added so much drama and edginess to those leather boots.

Baroque and Provence Influences

Some designers used lace-up details for creating specific baroque and Provence styles in their collections for a bigger impact. Thus, Dolce & Gabbana turned to tiny lacing for decorating the baroque style corset in the timeless black color, which looked so spectacular in combination with the black stockings and the vintage black bra. On the other hand, Provence was the main theme of the white floaty dress of Louis Vuitton, which was skillfully embellished with black-and-white crisscross lacing. These are two totally contrasting and different looks, which praise the beauty of lace-up details equally well.

Spring/ Summer 2015 Fashion Trends: Crisscross Lacing

Corset-esque and Seventies Lacing

Corset-esque lacing can also look unique in combination with more elegant and stricter clothing pieces with subtle masculine influences. This is what we learn from the pinstriped white blazer decorated with front lace-up detailing spotted at Jean Paul Gaultier’s very last ready-to-wear fashion show. It looks powerful and creative and is a good piece to elevate your casual looks or tone down your office outfits. And if you are looking for ways of wearing the season’s biggest trend – Seventies, you can make it more creative spicing things up with lacing details, like we see it in case of this Costume National dark brown suede ensemble.

Spring/ Summer 2015 Fashion Trends: Crisscross Lacing

The Totally Distinctive Form of Lacing

Tighter and smaller forms of lacing or whip-stitching can take a simple white top to a whole new level. This 3.1. Phillip Lim top is a statement piece not only thanks to the creative fusion of different textures in a single design, but also the most unique way of holding those two together. And if you are more into simplistic, yet powerful pieces, than this white knitted oversized sweater with a big side slit and catchy lace-up detailing is the go-to piece for building up both casual and more feminine looks. Victoria Beckham definitely knows how to make a statement using minimalist designs and details!

Spring/ Summer 2015 Fashion Trends: Crisscross Lacing

These are just some very cool ways of wearing the season’s hit trend, however, you can be sure to see more creative designs with crisscross lacing both from high-street retailers and more luxury brands.

Nicki Minaj for Roberto Cavalli Spring 2015 Campaign

Fashion

Nicki Minaj is the face of the Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2015 ad campaign, following Rita Ora, who was the muse for the Italian luxury brand for the fall/winter season. Photographed in sunny Los Angeles by Francesco Carrozzini, she looks strong, retro, sexy and mysterious in a number of dynamic and colorful shots with a colorful background. In the photos, she dons some of the most iconic pieces from the Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2015 collection, including maxi dresses in different shades, as well as a nude separate with chic embroidery.

Nicki Minaj for Roberto Cavalli Spring 2015 Campaign

Talking about their choice of the new muse, Roberto Cavalli has stated: “I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman. In recent years, we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes. With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves — rather, she turns them into her strength.”

With her jet-black bob hair styled into an outrageous bouffant style and matched with black eyeliner, Nicki looks show-stopping in these photos, also posing lying on a piece of luxury fur, which has always defined Cavalli’s style (remember their trademark animal motifs). Other than demonstrating the hottest Cavalli dresses from their new season collection, Minaj is also placing the focus on the importance of accessories, which are wild, eye-catching and bold like the style ideology of the fashion house is. A spectacular fur bag, another one in the golden reptile skin, metallic heeled sandals, killer sunglasses and jewelry pieces perfect her Cavalli looks, giving more luxury and glamour to the overall Roberto Cavalli spring 2015 campaign.

It has been proved multiple times that the correctly chosen brand ambassadors can bring so much profit and success to the fashion brand, and it’s not by chance that for the new season Givenchy has tapped Julia Roberts as its faceVersace has asked Madonna to star in their new ad campaign, while Roberto Cavalli decided to bring sensation to the fashion world picking such a powerful muse for their new promotional photos as Nicki Minaj. We are more than sure this collaboration is going to be more than fruitful (just check the popularity of Minaj’s “Anaconda” video clip and you’ll get it). The full Roberto Cavalli spring 2015 campaign starring Nicki Minaj will appear in the January editions of international publications.

Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall 2015 Collection

Fashion

The Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2015 collection was inspired from Loulou de la Falaise, the famous Seventies style icon and the muse to Yves Saint Laurent. “I loved her eccentricity and her strength,” said Stacey Bendet, the creative director at Alice + Olivia. “She wasn’t a passive person.” She skillfully managed to combine Falaise’s charming bohemian style with the femininity of the Forties getting a unique conglomeration of patterns, colors, shapes and design details that instantly charm. “A lot of the fabrics have a vintage feel, but everything is mixed up to be made modern,” Bendet explained. “She was this very powerful woman, and I wanted the clothes to feel strong.”

Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall 2015 CollectionBendet is well known for her skill to show a variety of trends, styles, fabrics and patterns in a single collection and although the new Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2015 collection has a single muse, it still manages to surprise with the diversity of the pieces available. The collection starts with a riot of pieces decorated with mosaic and baroque patterns and splashes of bright shades, including orange, red and aqua blue. The Seventies gypsy vibe is present throughout this range of pieces, from the high-waisted printed maxi skirt matched with a delicate see-through black top and the V-neck printed maxi dress with an asymmetric hemline to the lush brocade full skirt in a bright orange shade and cut at the tea-length, which is boldly paired with a brightly printed V-neck blouse. The floral brocade knee-length dress is quite modest and can be a great fit for formal parties too, despite looking slightly eye-popping thanks to the bright orange shade used. When topped with a colorfully graphic patterned poncho, it looks even bolder and folksy.

The navy blue palazzo pants matched with a flowing blouse in the same shade are just a dream for those big fans of the elegant and feminine style with minimalistic accents. Then we also discover more Seventies inspirations, including suede pieces, folksy vest and ponchos, a gypsy-style leopard printed maxi skirt, a disco-ready sequined mini dress and high-waisted skirts skillfully teamed with turtleneck cropped tops or skin-tights sweaters. Army green used for an array of stylish designs brings military motifs to the scene, which look simply spectacular spiced up with retro and feminine vibes.

Perfectly tailored suiting and lace and handkerchief maxi dresses provide classiness to the entire Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2015 collection, while the occasionally used leopard patterns and snakeskin motifs give a subtle wilderness to the designs. And we surely love those fringed black skirts coming in different lengths and looking so special and luxe. Once again Bendet has managed to present a collection that targets different tastes and styles.
