The Collection by S:
I absolutley loved these six beautifally tailored and draped pieces, they screamed Chanel. Pairing them with Churitung-esqe pants and over the top jewelry gave it the perfect look. I also adored the black and white, signature Chanel, knee high boots with the jeweled designs.
This look was one of my favourites. It looked luxe, modern, over the top, and polished all at the same time. I absolutely loved the gold leaf details and again the Churitung inspired pants. I want the sandals and leg gear really badly! Dare I look at the price tag though.
Being raised in a conservative muslim family with strong morals I find myself trying to find modest pieces that look good (which living in the west can be difficult). Though I may not wear a hijab I still find it extremely important to dress modestly. This look, and many others in this collection, embodie what I want my style to say: I can be stylish in the western world and still embodie my morals and culture.
I am in love with the pearl details and tailoring of these three pieces!!
|Love the salwar inspired pants and the gorgeous coat!|
|Must have the blazer!|
|Love the pants!|
I liked the ease of these four pieces, I can see myself trekking away stylishly in these pieces.
|Love this whole look, from the pearl details on the|
sweater and scarf to the gorgreous coat with kundan buttons, tres luxe!
|Love the Blazer!!!|
|What girl doesnt want a bright pink trench!|
|My fav take on the lace trend|
|I want this dress, modern, chick, and stylish|
This dress is wieghtless and effortless as much as it is dramatic and stylish.
|Loved the collor piece with the gems paired with the beautifally tailored dress in this intricately detailed luxe fabric. Can you tell I want this dress!!!|
These four pieces were gorgeous the cuts were flattering and dramatic. The details in reds, oranges, greens, and blues were inspired by the mugal era and made these pieces gorgeous. Having mugal ancestary I feel drawn to these pieces and their indo-inspired structure.
The pleats at the top of these dresses are gorgeous, there cut and silhouette exude a fairytale quality. The look seems as if plucked out of a storybook description of a Rani.
|Love the skirt!|
|Awesome mirror details|
I loved the silhouettes of these numbers, they seemed inspired by the dramatic flowing cuts of the trendy Anarkali's.
|Loved the last dress, it was beautifally |
draped and the high collar was beautiful.
A closer look:
The makeup seemed inspired by the dramatic eyes seen on indian and pakistani ramps. It's deffinately somthing I will be trying out. The gold nails were so opulent, deffinately searching for the perfect gold shade on my next shop. The jewelry was one of my favourite aspects of this show: pearls, kundan, silk tassles. I am a huge fan of jewelry so I was pleasantly suprised by all the beautiful pieces on the runway. The bags were gorgeuos they went from mirrored to metallic and to jewelled. They were magnificent! The sandals and boots were to die for, they jewelled and blinged out to the max! The Panjanglas(A piece of jewelry that looks like a gold glove), Tikkas, and Matha Pattis were absolutely gorgeous! I loved the fine details and how all these details cullimanated to make right type of over the top statement.
|OMG these sandals were to die for!|
|Love the gloves!|
The show by A
The five looks Lagerfeld showed in his collection, for men, definatley left me wanting more. The pieces were beautifally tailored and screamed of the luxe past of the indian subcontinent. From the rich silks to the accesories the looks were absolutely inspiring.
I desperately want the top three looks, the long and short white jackets and the black and gold jacket were exquisite.
The venue, the Galerie Coube at the Grand Palais, was converted into a luxe Maharaja's palace for the show. Loving everything over the top and dramatic this was my type of entertaining and decorating. And the dinner was a delectable indo-inspired treat: mango-lassi, chai and, barfi being served with champagne and French macaroons. Deffinately some great take home ideas for the next time we entertain.
