Fendi. the clean continues. With colour therapy

Ah! The oh-so-pretty fashion weeks are on their toll… and is anybody disappointed! I can’t say that. The Fashion Weeks from Paris and Milan are showing us some of the most beautiful garments… colour shocks, cuts, and the detailing to die for….  ♥♥♥

Though i have my share of love to the multiple layers of winter, somehow, the simple and clean gets my vote.

My favourites… Alexander McQueen. Fendi. Valentino. Chanel. In no particular order. Each with their choices of clean cuts and detailing to the perfection make me want to have them all… (wish wish)

Here’s a preview of the classics from Fendi.

Classy. Chic. Retro.

The Elegance of McQueen is alive.

McQueen’s show, in the words from Style.com was such:  “It’s hard to conceive of a more thankless task in fashion than taking over from a designer as galvanizing as Alexander “Lee” McQueen, but Sarah Burton is precisely the kind of quiet powerhouse who has what it takes to grab hold of his legacy and drag it where it needs to go to survive and prosper. As much as she worked beside McQueen for 15 years and clearly had a symbiotic connection to his very particular vision, it’s her gender that is her greatest asset and point of difference, at least as it shaped tonight’s show. The very first outfit could stand as a manifesto for the future: The tail coat is a trad McQueen piece, but here it was softened, its edges unfinished, and the hard, peaked shoulders that were another McQueen signature had been slashed open, relaxed.”

A nature’s beauty! The collection was inspired from various  delights of nature, clearly depicted in the butterfly motifs with rich brocades, embellished with leather leaves and metal trims.  OH! and the lovely shoes!!!

A standing ovation to Ms. Sarah Burton. Applause. Thank you so much.

Apart from that, have a look at that unique hairstyle! the hairs are loosely weaved together for a carefree style. I like! :)

The Fun ELLE

Something is happening to Indian fashion….

And it’s not just about various fashion magazines entering India….

While Femina is still trying to be a fashion magazine, it comes out as a whole-woman-magazine, talking about fashion-yes, relationships, travel, and so much more…..

marie claire, Verve and L’Official are there too!

but for me, Vogue-as it is a self-claimed fashion Bible-for its serious fashion, Harper’s Bazaar-for its personal style, and ELLE-for its fun and an easy take on fashion wins for me any day!

Elle Paris April 2010

To be honest I am inclined towards Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar for very cliché reasons, while ELLE becomes my pretty-and-daring fashion guide! Well… another truth is… I am not a fashion follower…. i just wear what i want to…. or what is available in my wardrobe… But i adore fashion… and everything related to it…. I am just lazy to follow it myself….

Enough of that… but look at the fun editorials ELLE  has… ok.. i know other magazines have them too…. but seriously… look at this!!!

Guess its the prints too that work for me here….

Below is the ELLE cover for June 2010:
