The Prada Therapy

I have been out of blogging for almost a month due to being the busiest guy on Earth but I promise you all I will try to go back to a normal pace as soon as possible.
By now, I really want to show you this short film with Ben Kingsley acting like a proper Prada lover. Enjoy my friends

SOS 4.8!

As you all know I LOVE to be out and about so I spent my last weekend before leaving home and signing my contract of employment in Murcia, a city in south Spain, dancing to the beats of SOS 4.8 Festival.



So for me it was all about being dressed in comfy denim and Superga® (you all know how concerts usually come to an end, with your shoes coated in sand and human fluids so an easy to clean footwear was the main idea of the outfit)

Classics never fail.

If there is something I cannot deny is how Burberry, and especially the Prorsum line, have been gaining positions in my favourite brands scale due to some fantastic items that I immediately wrote down in my personal list "Item of desire" as soon as I spotted them in the fashion shows (see it here and here)

But the other day I was bored to death at home (while raining cats and dogs outside, must say) surfing the web and I found this Burberry video-ad campaign and I was really surprised when I realised that, appart from fashion, trends and whatever else, classics have something that never ends. 


As an illustration, this amazing trench coats with the iconic checks printed in the  lining that, honestly, made my mouth melt.

Spring in a nutshell.

If you are still looking for some late spring - early summer inspiration I think you should take a close look to SS12 Joseph Altuzarra's collection which probably concentrates all the spring trends in a nutshell.






So you must write down some tips:

1) Bright colors but without evading neutral black and white.
2) Different prints to mixed and match.
3) Bare legs.
4) Garments with different textures and materials in the same outfit.
5) And last but not least, feminine silhouettes.

 This is everything you need to look perfect in every social event in which you are going to be taking part during this months.

P.d. Sorry for the lack of updates lately but, as I already told you, I am about to move to a different city so I spend my days trying to sort things out as well as making the most with my last days off. Hope to be back to a proper pace as soon as possible.

Hogging the limelight: Assaad Awad



It seems that nowadays everybody is into spikes, studs and a lot of more stuff related to goth style so it is the perfect time to introduce you to Assaad Awad just in case you don't know him yet.

Starting from the beginning, Assaad Awad is a fashion designer born in Lebanon but currently living and working in Madrid. He has focused his work in transforming metals, leather, stone and some other raw materials into high fashion items like shades, shoes, corsets, jewelery and so on.

ITEM OF DESIRE: The Cambridge Satchel Company® bag

First of all, sorry for the lack of updates in the past few days but I have been as busy as a bee with some personal stuff related with my new job.

As I am going to start my professional career in a fortnight more or less I have been thinking about what am I going to need for being prepared for my new 'way of life' so I thought that a worker bag will be required as soon as posible in order to face the long working days out of home.

It just took me 5 seconds to decide that one of my early purchases with my first wage should be a satchel from The Cambridge Satchel Company®, so I switched on my laptop and I entered the official website (link above) to see what they have for me.



I think I will get one of them in a dark, sober and professional color like navy blue, black or brown but I was quite surprised when I saw these fluor-coloured ones or the new 'batchel' which is a bit wider than the original satchel and with an upper handle, but as functional as the first one.



So now that the decision has been made it will just be a matter of time to spot me on my way to job with a satchel hanging on my shoulder.

April Showers


Now that April showers are here to stay I just can´t stop thinking about this see-through raincoat from Burberry Prorsum FW/2011 collection and how it will look covering my trench coat.

Simply enjoy how they looked like on the finale of the menswear fashion show when it started raining indoors.

PRINT BLOCKING

We all know that last summer was, without any single doubt, the summer of colour blocking and fluor. For this season, the trend is going to be PRINTS in the widest range you can ever imagine them.

I have been doing my research and trying to find out what ZARA will have for us and here I show you just some pics of what I have found.


I felt in love at first sight when I saw this handkerchief printed shirt.




These paisley printed garments will be a perfect mate for summer evenings if you wear them with plain colour clothes or with other printed items.

And, as a more flamboyant point, this seahorses printed shirt for the most daring ones.

Now it is time for you to think how you will mix and match you printed items and to improve your self-esteem!

Hogging the limelight: Ryan Gosling

Ok, ever since I discovered Ryan Gosling I have been delighted with the way he is hogging the limelight every time he appears.

The premiere of Drive was during LA FILM FESTIVAL and Ryan hit the red carpet wearing a navy blue two-button Burberry tailored suit. But what really caught everybody's eye was the black suede loafers and the bright red socks adding a colourful touch to this smart look.




During the 69th Cannes Film Festival Edition he surprised us more than ever wearing two different Salvatore Ferragamo looks. One of them, more casual, combining a lovely pyjama-like top with white trousers and bicolour shoes (quite risky, let me say, but perfect as well)



More recently and for The ides of march premiere he chose a fantastic olive green Gucci tailored suit with a white shirt and a striped tie that absolutely blew my mind.




I think them all are new ways of looking smart keeping yourself away from the more than boring black to which we have been obliged to wear quite a lot so, now it is time to choose which Gosling's style tips fit you better and try to add them to your own outfits.

Have fun!

F for Fashion&Fantasy

If there is something  that has been getting bigger over the past seasons is the interest around Louis Vuitton's fashion shows and the magic that Marc Jacobs and his team create specifically for every ocasion.

So, two years ago it was de show with the huge fountain in the middle and the lovely and na├»ve face of Laetitia Casta opening the show.


Then, one year later we all were dumbfounded when the lights turned on and the bellboys opened the doors to a world of corsets, peaked caps and lingerie.


But the surprise for this year was even bigger when the Orient Express came into the room and models started to get off the train while, bellboys again, were carrying their suitcases, handbags and briefcases.

We are not just talking about the ambience being the most stunning thing on the runway but about the glitter and feathers on the bags, trousers' patterns, embroided jackets and breathtaking heels that had all of us drooling over them.

ITEM OF DESIRE: Platform shoes

I think it all started back in the 50's when the Teddy Boys added the so called 'brothel creepers' to his more than imitated look. This type of shoe regained popularity in the early 1970s when they were worn by people as Malcolm McLaren or Vivienne Westwood.






But it has been quite later and due to Prada S/S11 colection when the platform shoe became a clearly object of desire for all kind of fashionistas, bloggers and trend lovers. It was just like a boom and everybody had the craving of owning a pair.




Later on, during London Fashion Week, we all felt in love at first sight once again when those Burberry platform loafers hit the catwalk in the F/W11 show, and then I suddenly realised that we all needed something similar to feel less anxious and why not, a bit taller.




So, after a long research I found this "wannabe" at Zara website and I have to recognise that eventhough they are not the same, they are quite more affordable for my budget and I have been using them ever since I bought them and feeling a little bit more trendy for a while.

MARNI for H&M Collection

After a more than long wait, the day is almost here. In just five days, some selected stores all over the world will be filled with the pastel colors and geometric patterns that have always been present in the Marni garments.



Here you have some of the pictures that I found at H&M website showing us the outfits that Consuelo Castiglioni has created for the Swedish house.


I can't wait to wear this pijama-like outfit to the bakery this spring, or this lovely yellow lifejacket-like vest to a pool party this summer.

Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012

Now that PFW has just started and after reviewing a few shows I clearly have to point out at something that simply took my breath away.


This Christian Dior Haute Couture SS12 is, without any doubt, an statement of what Dior has been trying to say in the fashion industry right from the foundation of la Maison back in 1946.
This is a proof that no one is essential, as this collection is slapping directly to the face of those who belived that it would be difficult to find someone to take Dior back to its roots after the forced farewell of Galliano.

Firstly take a look. Then take a bow.
