girls in suits 010 Max Mara

so yeahhhh ive been away busy suiting and booting myself so what better way to return than with my next girls in suits write up!!

always at the top of the chic tailoring game, italian luxury fashion house Max Mara have been designing for women since being established in 1951 // somehow the brand has managed to keep driving forward power dressing for women in an ever changing landscape // cuts are kept modern and sharp whilst still maintaining femininity, something i am always conscious of when power dressing //

ian griffiths, the creative director at max mara has been at the helm for a number of years now // somehow he’s continued with the brands timeless strong woman aesthetic and kept them relevant and forward thinking //

few snippets of my favourite looks from the last few Fall seasons below // too many looks to choose from but here im focusing on suiting predominantly //

hell yeah //

riri launches FENTY

it was only a matter of time // rihanna pairs up with LVMH to launch fashion brand FENTY // after a successful collab with the likes of puma its nice to see Ri launch her own label on the more luxury end of the spectrum //

needless to say she’s a long-time style icon of mine //

taking a look at the first release lookbook for FENTY it’s plain to see many of what have come to be rihannas trademark styles // oversized tailoring && cinched waists with extra accessories that pop in simple colours //

my actual favourite looks are below // i particularly like the cohesion to the drop and the fact that she hasnt overdone the drop in terms of number of pieces //

the collection is already live online with pop up stores in Paris and one to come in NY in late June // no doubt other major cities around the world will get similar privilege //

it really is new territory for the badgirl entrepreneur and as the first woman of colour to run design for a fashion house at LVMH a historic achievement //

cant wait to see what else riri and FENTY will have in store for us ! //

patta x Jordan VII collection

highly anticipated collab between patta and Jordan hits the shops // first time Jordan has linked up with a European brand //

I feel like a chip on my shoulders
I feel like I’m losin’ my focus
I feel like I’m losin’ my patience
I feel like my thoughts in the basement
Feel like, I feel like you’re miseducated
Feel like I don’t wanna be bothered
I feel like you may be the problem
I feel like it ain’t no tomorrow, fuck the world
The world is endin’, I’m done pretendin’
And fuck you if you get offended
I feel like friends been overrated
I feel like the family been fakin’
I feel like the feelings are changin’
Feel like my daughter compromised and jaded
Feel like you wanna scrutinize how I made it
Feel like I ain’t feelin’ you all
Feel like removin’ myself, no feelings involved
I feel for you, I’ve been in the field for you
It’s real for you, right? Shit, I feel like

Ain’t nobody prayin’ for me

Rebekah.
