ludovic de saint sernin ss20

parisian based ex-balmain designer Ludovic de Saint Sernin presented his wet and wild collection at the pompidou centre a couple of weeks back // i must say for someone who mastered the intricacies of OTT embellishment i love the sleek and minimal style of his designs //

only recently dipping into womenswear its lovely to see the full spectrum in his collection // transparent fabrics and the signature eyelet underwear brief from last season made a reappearance // the whole set was like a sexy wet t-shirt competition turned high fashion //

few of my favourite looks below // male sensuality on point //

deserving of the buzz and one to watch for sure //

louis vuitton spring 2020 menswear

ok so all eyes were on the mens louis v show in paris yesterday and i have to say it did not disappoint // these looks are BEAUTIFUL // virgil retaining that crown and sitting firmly as the king of the LV bouncy castle //

relaxed shapes && flowing pants, pastels, flowers, and couture techniques // the colour palette was more mix and match than last year but none the less very sleek n minimal with the occasional POP //

according tot he programme notes virgil had chosen the idea of wild flowers as a metaphor for diversity // and the whole show was a return to boyhood //

accessories drove the internet wild this time // check out the shoes and bag combos YASSSS // and also the floral arrangements and kites //

great to see the likes of octavian and lucien clarke walking on the runway // also octavian did a BOILERROOM that eve reckon that was a hype //

favourite looks below //

theres more life in LV than ever // kites at the ready //

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 ! //

girls in suits 004 Tibi

Tibi Spring rtw collection was a masterclass in gender neutral tailoring // long flowing shapes && soft pastel tones these pieces are perfect for spring workwear //

simple and minimal cuts make for effortless and chic looks // designer amy smilovic even got a couple of male models in for the show blurring the boundaries of unisex tailoring even further and i’m all for it!! //

simple and modern // youthful yet sophisticated //

even the shorts suit looks great tempted to give it a try //

Balmain couture spring 2019

balmain is back in the couture game after a 16 year hiatus // creative director Olivier Rousteing paves the way //

the collection was unmistakably futuristic featuring incredible silhouettes and textures // pastel tones and strong (questionable!) eyewear littered the catwalk //

the models were painted head to toe which made for a really interesting aesthetic alongside the statement pieces //

yeh and Beyonce just wore a piece to the roc nation brunch // fashion killer //
