Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Fashion

Tom Ford, never one to conform to the norm, created a boisterous video to showcase his new garments included in the Tom Ford spring/summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection on a virtual runway. Models sassed and danced their way down a runway paved by dancing onlookers, and to the beat of Lady Gaga’s cover of Nile Rodgers’ “I Want Your Love,” no less. But the fashion-dance party didn’t stop there.

Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

“It was a great deal of fun to do,” Ford said in an interview with Vogue, “and I think that the video captures the spirit of the collection in a way that a filmed traditional show would not have.” There is no doubt this addition of media to the runway allowed for Tom Ford to play a lot more than he otherwise could have. With the limitations of space and audience avoided, he was able to create a fully sensual experience for the models, the actors, and the audience of the video.

These theatrics didn’t overshadow the clothes the models wore, however. The clothes were as spunky as the models themselves, and there couldn’t have been a better presentation for the line. Tom Ford didn’t just present clothes, but also a distinct attitude and way of life. These are all feats you can only achieve in minimal amounts on the runway.

From sparkly beaded tops to drop-dead gorgeous eveningwear, and down to the sexy stilettos, the Tom Ford spring 2016 collection is not for the faint of heart. It is for the young, the bold, and anyone who isn’t afraid to take risks for the sake of fashion. In his choice of presentation alone, you can see his own love for taking risks, and the woman he designs for has the same tendencies.

Even Lady Gaga herself made an appearance in the video as a spectator, and of course she didn’t forego the opportunity to show off her dancing skills alongside the rest of the actors. It seemed like it was a music video, featuring Tom Ford’s designs.

The looks themselves match the energy of the video, and really shine as the focal point. The dancing could have easily overshadowed the looks, but the complete opposite happened, as the ruckus in the background created a perfect stage for the garments.

Tom Ford designed a collection for a woman with an all-encompassing life. He showed professional clothes, streetwear, and even clubwear, which was furthered by the music and dancing in the video. If there’s one thing to be said about the Tom Ford girl, however, it’s that her sex appeal is never lost in her clothes. She is able to put on a garment and know that she’s rocking it. She’s able to have fun and not take herself too seriously while knowing when to balance things out with professionalism.

PRADA BOW COSMETIC POUCH WITH CHAIN

Other Brands

Prada-Bow-COSMETIC-POUCH-with-Chain

Prada lovers in the house, make some noise! Today, we’re going to feature the Bow Cosmetic Pouch with Chain, another delectable treat that comes in an assortment of candy colors to choose from (if pastels and light shades are your thing, you know what to find). These babies come in beautiful Saffiano leather, with an added design element which is a cute bow with the luxury house’s metal lettering logo in front.

The bag may be called a cosmetic pouch, but it has a chain and can be used as a beautiful shoulder bag…which leaves us with a tricky question – is it really a pouch or a shoulder bag? The jury is out on this one, but we’d want to know your thoughts. What do you think?

It is also adorned with gold-plated hardware, which shines beautifully and accentuates the piece’s exterior. It has zipper closure, which keeps all of your valuables intact. Also, for added measure, it has two inside pockets – I mean, if you have to fit all of your stuff in a teeny bag then this should be on top of your list! Even with its seemingly minute size, it has enough space to store your essentials.

Priced at $780 USD or €590 EUR, you can get your very own Bow Cosmetic Pouch with Chain via Prada e-store.

Chanel Tweed Sunglasses

Other Brands

chanel_ss15-tweed-sunglasses1This might seem like a case of #randommuch, but with sunglasses becoming the 3rd most important component towards completing an outfit after deciding on your stunning sling and killer heels, I figured these soon-to-be-released ones from Chanel were worth a quick mention. A signature emblem of the French luxury house, you’ll find renderings of tweed patterns on the oversized butterfly styles whilst channelling your inner Bardot or Onassis.

chanel_ss15-tweed-sunglasses2Available in a plethora of colours (I find the ones in black/white and black/white with a tinge of red especially alluring), you’ll be able to try them out (and buy a pair or 3) come 1 May when they are launched in Singapore at Chanel boutiques island-wide. And by island-wide I mean their respective stores at either Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City.

The Full Balmain x H&M Fall 2015 Campaign

Fashion

With the Balmain x H&M collaboration announcement revealed at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this year it became clear that The Balmain army famous for uniting the most beautiful creatures from the fashion industry is soon expected to grow into aBalmain nation. Now as finally the full Balmain x H&M collaboration launched its glam print campaign, our hearts missed a beat. As expected it was glamorous and chic with the Balmain DNA pulsing in every look. We were not surprised to see the reigning queens of the catwalks and friends of Olivier Rousteing – Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadidand Jourdan Dunn – take a ride in the futuristic looking subway alongside less famous but stunning looking male models Hao Yun Xiang and Dudley O’Shaughnessy. Shot by the celebrated fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti, the Balmain x H&M fall 2015 campaign is crisp and edgy. Now that we think back, we realize the scene does remind us strongly of the lux department life in the movie Snowpiercer, but that is not the only thing to catch our eye.

Balmain x H&M Fall 2015 Campaign

The result of the collaboration is truly impressive we have the feeling all the pieces have landed right from the latest Balmain catwalks, only with more affordable price tags. The spirit of Balmain confidence and powerful sexuality is in every detail. We see different amazing looks where Gigi is in a black beaded jacket, Kendall is sporting a black sleeveless tuxedo-style jacket with a monochrome jumpsuit underneath, and Jourdan is donning an amazing beaded black dress. In another shot, all the models are pictured sporting monochrome black outfits, Gigi in a chic and a glamorous shawl lapel, Kendall in a rich looking faux fur jacket with skinny leather pants and Jordan in a more complicated looking textured velvet dress, all in elegant eternal blacks. Some other looks included in the much-awaited collection are reincarnations of the Balmain fall/winter 2016 ready-to-wear collection, like Gigi’s retched red skirt, or the vertically striped pants and the beaded jacket.

The accessories illustrated in the print campaign are far from subtle, the large armor like rings, bracelets chunky necklaces, wide waist belts, massive earrings and bedazzling clutches being all a real Balmain woman craves for.

Balmain x H&M Fall 2015 Campaign

Overall, the result of the Balmain x H&M collaboration is truly impressive and the complete collection actually looks like a Balmain mainline. Talking about his Balmain x H&M collaboration, the 29-year-old Balmain creative director confesses in an interview: “I’m an H&M boy, I’m the H&M generation.” He recalls himself waiting in the queues to be able to purchase the clothes from the very first H&M designer collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld. The young designer also feels Balmain with every fiber: “I think Balmain DNA is all about unique, and I can’t express how much I’m so excited and how much I enjoy it. Thanks to H&M that is this huge platform. Joining Balmain and H&M it is creating an Italian Nation, So I think the hashtag #HMBALMAINNATION is a symbol of togetherness”.
