Alexandre Vauthier Couture Spring 2014

Alexandre Vauthier Couture Spring 2014 | Cultural Trendz | Scoop.it

Alexandre Vauthier pumped up the artistic side of his couture collection for spring. Braided leather added edge and texture to his body-hugging looks, while macramé tops and dresses — some were entirely knotted from hand-woven ropes — gave off an ethnic flair. Vauthier also experimented with sisal; the lightweight, malleable fabric helped him work undulating shapes on short ruffled dresses for a look that, surprisingly, was dressier than the rest of his show.

Vauthier offered a potpourri of references but never abandoned his familiar sexy disco theme, one that’s brought him red-carpet success. Here, his dancing queens showed leg and cleavage, the golden python collars on their leather jackets practically outshining photographers’ flashes.


More straightforward were looks done in a new Neoprenelike fabric made from waxed jersey. So light, it gave a stone-embroidered varsity jacket a shirtlike quality. Vauthier paired it with a white poplin shirtdress to great effect.

Vilma Bonilla's insight:

Spring will come not a moment too soon for me. I was stunned by these very feminine, astistic designs by Alexandre Vauthier. This wild print has an ethereal flow that hails goddess. Check out the slideshow pics on the original post by clicking on the image or title above. ~ V.B.

Orla Kiely RTW Spring 2014

Orla Kiely RTW Spring 2014 | Cultural Trendz | Scoop.it

Orla Kiely sent out a collection of sweet silhouettes with a military twist. Inspired by generations of intrepid British travelers to Africa and India, and by the Girl Guides — the local version of the Girl Scouts — Orla Kiely sent out a collection of sweet silhouettes with a military twist. There were cropped, dusty rose jackets with patch pockets and epaulets; navy blue coats with shiny gold buttons; and stiff raffia skirts with embroidered pockets. Prints took their cue from the African savannah: Zebras, giraffes, rhinos, and lions herded onto T-shirts, knits and flocked silk organza dresses with full skirts.

Today is the most depressing day of the year.

Psuedo-science types monitored sentiment on social media and found that the first Monday back to work supposedly ranks as the crabbiest day of the year. You've returned to the 9-to-5 routine, the Christmas tree is on the curb and the weather sucks.
