Charlie Le Mindu backstage - Paris Fashion Week.

Given how avant-garde this collection is, I love how tribal it looks. Thumbs up for Charlie Le Mindu.

Ato Spring/Summer 2012 - Tokyo Fashion Week

In reviewing the labels that presented at Tokyo Fashion Week (Mercedes - Benz Fashion Week) Ato Matsumoto collection really spoke to me.

The collection included both menswear and womenswear and the style was mostly streetwear. The highlight of Ato's collection included long slim fitting coats and blazers, which were double-breasted and had military detailing.

Overall, I really loved the simplicity of the collection, as well as the detailing on the coats and blazers. I also liked the colour palette, I felt it was sophisticated and refreshing.

Etoile Filante - Numéro Magazine - Sept 2011

I was flipping through the September Issue of Numéro and found these great editorial pictures titled Etoile Filante (meaning Shooting Star).

The images are stunning. I love the clothes and accessories the models are wearing, particularly the jeweled headpieces. I also love the chaos in these images, the messy hair and clothing give off a tribal impression, but also with some classy elements.

Versace for H&M LookBook

Just recently the full Versace collection for Swedish retailer H&M has been unveiled.
The collection is full of classic Versace prints and cuts, but also with some new additions.

For women, the main focus is dresses that have bold patterns (mostly Greek patterns), bright colours, and metallic accents. With menswear, the collection includes bright colours and patterns, but also sharp and sophisticated tailoring, as well as leather goods with gold and silver studs and zippers.
Furthermore, accessories include high top footwear, scarves, belts, and embellished beanies.

Personally, I never really was a big fan of Versace, but I really do love the boldness of this collection. I especially like the studded pants, shirts and accessories. Again, I'm on a big stud high and I really think I need a Versace studded leather jacket to quench my craving :)
