Styling Renaissance // My Choice

img-set-3.jpg

Since all week we’ve talked about this ongoing trend, I couldn’t help myself but be seduced by it and go with the flow.

The result? My personal styling choice, involving this Carolina Herrera embroidered dress, coupled with some whimsical touches here and there. And, of course, a bit of nature, only this time in the shape of beautiful and poisonous Belladonna flowers, applied directly on the front of this lovely hand-made clutch I found on Etsy.com.

Wearing Renaissance // Fall RTW 2016

img-set-2.jpg

Having been lately to all sorts of events hosted in classical buildings with detailed architecture, seeing a few movies on theme and, last but not least, watching the fall collections, really got me in the mood for some serious classical interventions.

So I put together a couple of outfits around some of my favorite pieces of the season – like the Renaissance long ruffled dress, the off the schoulder ruffle white top and the embroidered cape. The military jacket is also back on spot, but this is a different topic I’ll approach in a new article soon.

What I love? Black embroidered velvet mixed with shiny boots, ruffles and tight jeans, pairing the military jacket with the pleated dress. Geometric graphics also play along well.

How do you feel about the new inspiration this season?

Renaissance All Over Again

renaissance mood.jpg

Whatever your style options, don’t miss your chance to try on this season something of medieval inspiration, you might start to love it.

Bell sleeves, corsets, big ruffled collars and long dresses, mixed with royal materials, like velvet, jacquard or brocade, are the keys to look for in creating a modern Renaissance inspired outfit.

 Choose a medieval jacket and pair with jeans and boots, for adding only a twist to your casual look, or go all the way matching a long dress with a multi layered necklace and a cape, for the most authentic feeling.
Anywhere in between, you’ll find plenty of space for inspiration and experiment.

Something old, something new…

Velvet.jpg

Here is something to try this season –  a touch of velvet will uplift your look and add a twist to your outfit.

Bear in mind that there are many types of material available, but not all are made of natural fibers. And this is really not a detail to be ignored if you plan to invest in something that both looks and feels good.

Velvet has been around for some time, so the element of now stands for shape and style. How about a velvet suit, as seen at 3.1 Phillip Lim or a pijama inspired outfit like in the Alberta Ferretti show? A classical long dress will also do, but be sure to pair with some edgy high platform boots and a square hand-bag, to bring it in the present.

Either way, this is something to experiment with for the coming fall.

Shoes for Fall 2016 – Chapter I

mid heel.jpg

Easy to wear and easy to style, with a certain retro-chic charm, the mid-heel shoes are still on, after a few seasons of high popularity.

For this fall in particular, think opulence and sparkles when it comes to shoes.

Leather with metallic shine, as seen at Tommy Hilfiger and Erdem, soft velvet as proposed by DKNY, feathers and embellishments that came straight out of the Wonderland, at Gucci and Dolce&Gabbana.

This season, choose shoes and boots that tell a story and leave the dull, mundane world behind. Than pair them with culotte pants or midi skirts and dresses, a neutral tee and a crop double breasted jacket and go kick-ass. In style.

Double power

What if…. days and nights would need no sleep?
You would gracefully swing from light to dark
And back to light again
Ever exploring
Both sides of the story.

Like a Virgin

img-set-5 copy.jpg

They said there was a time when being a Virgin was an act of personal power and strength, a trait that brought woman closer to God.
But what if Virgin… had nothing to do with one’s ability to restrain from desire, but was actually about one’s will and the power to manifest it?
What if Virgin was actually about sovereignty and not about chastity?
Of course, I am not saying all this non sense is true.
But could be.
Think about it…what if?
