Custo Barcelona Spring 2015 Collection Show

According to Custo Barcelona, SKIN IS IN for Spring 2015. At his jam-packed Spring 2015 collection show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, it was all about the skin you’re in, and the body’s largest organ was on display through geometric cut-outs that tease with glimpses of skin, subtle and not-so-subtle transparencies, in a variety of fabrications and seductive silhouettes.

Audacious colors and prints were present in the collection that boasted ultra-light linens, and flowy silk textiles, perfectly placed on the sides and backs of the looks to create an optical illusion of depth, a fundamental silhouette and the skin underneath. If you’re already familiar with Custo Barcelona, then you know he loves pairing colors and prints to amazing results.

This Spring 2015 Collection is no different. Polka dots, stripes, lace, geometric shapes, and bold graphics compliment each other as they lay side by side on a garment. Stunning textured appliques and impeccable details join the edgy cut-outs for striking yet sweet femininity. Ladies, there are so many looks you will want, so many looks you will need. Your wardrobe will thank you come spring.

Rush to Print with Gentle Fawn Fashion this Summer

We are ready to get lively this summer and we don’t mean party-wise. We’re ready to liven up our wardrobe with some very boisterous prints and standout pieces from Gentle Fawn. The Gentle Fawn brand offers a sophisticated but youthful approach to women’s fashion with fun, flirty pieces that pair well with any wardrobe.

We love the above poly crepe, and rayon fabric shorts; from the tailored and polished, pleated and cuffed dark floral print shorts, to the sexy, wide band jogger-style, global geometric print shorts, and comfy-as-pajamas drawstring tropical print shorts, these summer must-haves are perfect to add some fun prints to your wardrobe.

Make a statement every time you wear this colorful, over-sized vest with drop armpit sides. It’s perfect to invigorate a classic tank top and jeans look or spice up a dress. Although the last piece, the color block tank top, isn’t a print, we are still in love with the fashion details. We love the studs, and color blocked fabrication of jersey with chiffon; a subtle way to invigorate your summer look.

We’ve shared some of our favorite Gentle Fawn looks, which of these looks stand out to you?

Art in Color & Patterns | Duro Olowu for jcpenney Collection

There are times when I feel truly blessed….more than usual of course. I know I’m luckier than most and I so appreciate that but there are moments when I feel extra lucky. One of those moments happened during New York Fashion Week at the brunch celebration for the Duro Olowu for jcpenney Collection. I love beautiful standout prints and this London-based designer is brilliant with his lively prints and unique patterns. His blending of patterns are definitely fashionable art, they give new life to classic feminine silhouettes and shapes.

Though the collection isn’t out yet, it launches March 1st, I already have quite a list of items I want to add to my personal collection, my ultimate top three must-have clothing favorites being the trench coat, sheath dress and multi-colored checkerboard sweater (to start).

The accessories I’m still drooling over – the stunning Ram necklace, eye-catching “hand-painted canvas” and snakeskin print medium tote, the wild patterned shoes (which matches the trench coat I’m dying for), and the horn necklace are just a few of the dazzling array of unique and bold offerings from the collection.
