Shoe porn Viktor& Rolff:

It’s been a long time we’ve not presented you an actual shoe porn as you love them: Excentric but chic! Here is last Viktor&Rolff creation in suede for SS 2011! The revisited Indian touch along with the Balenciaga-like nails are pretty interesting. So, what do you think ?

Glamour but elegant, colored and sexy… Those are the best terms to describe the summer collection designed by Frida Giovanni for Gucci (ready-to-wear collection).

Inspired by the city of Marrakech and the late-seventies photographs of Guy Bourdin, David Bailey, and Chris von Wangenheim, her collection presents a large pannel of colors. To quote but one significant example, the silhouette that opened the show was actually a sort of melting-pot of an orange blazer, violet tube top, green pants, and gold python belt. Otherwise, the looks are original and inventive: a stylish overall and several adventurer looks with recherché safari and leather jackets.

To me, the whole collection is just uncredible and I wanted to share it with you. You gotta look at the pics after the break.

This is funny to see that some brands really manage to turn people into addict fans. I am not speaking for myself but I’ve always heard the words “Isabel Marant” with the same enthusiastic and fascinated intonation ! Isabel Marant is one of the brands that turn people’s heads across generations and you can see why in the Spring Summer 2011 lookbook below.

Serge Calfinger, artistic director of Paule Ka , has designed this amazing retro-collection.

As it is described on its website, “Paule Ka is a story about a dress, a little black dress that reflects the mythical couture of the 1950′s, the essence of Audrey Hepburn, and the taste of pure, contemporary refinement.” This wonderful and poetic sentence sums up perfectly what Serge Calfinger has always designed for his brand.

It’s been a long time since the last time I annoyed you with this preppy story! But this style has the particular advantage to be timeless or to be more precise to look like you’ve always dressed preppy and that you will dress this way forever. I am not a big big fan of what Gant proposes but there is a collection that deserves an appearance on this blog : the Gant Rugger line could be Gant’s funnier younger brother. Understand that it’s more youthful and casual, less country club, rather preppy American collegiate who wants to look more pulled together than their hooded sweatshirt and jean donning classmates. So what’s inside ?

I was upset a few months ago when I missed this lookbook that had accidently been leaked on various fashion blog and then removed. I can eventually enjoy the perfect summer looks – and the beautiful model ! The shooting à la Terry Richardson reveals amazing light dresses, shorts and cool cardigans. A lot of camel, dark blue and pink mixed with retro details like club collars, blue jean vests, loose cuts and floral prints. Nothing to criticize here and I am very enthusiastic and wait for the men’s lookbook !

I want to be sure that we had our message accross with these recent posts about minimal and elegant dressing. I’m a huge fan of short shorts, navy, khaki, a good trench, and a good suit (which I need badly in navy and khaki), so I was in love with Valentino’s Spring 2011 collection for men. I think the whole collection is very elegant and simple and young all at the same time. Although the collection is filled with dark hues of navy, khaki, greys, blacks, and camels, it’s still a very spring with all the denim and fun olive pieces. The shorts, suits, and blazers are my favorites. What do you think of this collection? For more click here and go beyond this extract for detailed pics.
