The Stella McCartney Fall collection for 2017 is filled with eclectic energy with bold explosions of colour and unexpected detailing. I love the slight masculine cut in the long coats and the oversized bags. Featuring my favourite looks, however, this season includes fringes, hot pink, red and eveningwear dresses. The gowns have geometric proportions and a lengthier fringe. The style is transformed from the striking red into a midnight feeling with dark tones and panels of bolder blue.All images from original website
The Theme for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute exhibition and 2017 Met Gala, was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. The show will be the first monograph show at the museum to focus on a living designer since its Yves Saint Laurent exhibit in 1983. My favourite look was Lily-Rose Depp in Chanel. She looks radiant, graceful and just lovely in the pink gown. The second favourite would be Liu Wen in a Off-White dress with gorgeous details.Photos from Vogue.co.uk | Popsugar | Metro
