The ready to wear collection was youthful with flashes of feminine and playfulness. Nail Artist Holly Falcone created three nail looks to compliment the fresh twist on the geek chic style. The first splash of color was playful and power pink ZINNIA, a vivid fuchsia crème with full coverage.

Sandy Liang

For Sandy Liang, Nail Artist Holly Falcone paired the classic French manicure with a 90’s twist using MOON BEAMS (Crisp Bright Alabaster White Crème) and SMOOTH SAILING (Pastel Blue Crème with a hint of Periwinkle) to create a stylish, yet simple thin French tip. This was an elegant look to complement the flirty gingham print skirts and girly dresses. Holly used a custom-made deep vampy-red to create a chic, bold and sophisticated nail look for the cool shearling and leather outerwear.

CLASSIC FRENCH & FRENCH TWIST HOW-TO

  1. Apply Prep with Peptides Clear Base Coat to clean filed nails.
  2. With a striping brush, create a french tip with Moon Beam (for Classic French) and Smooth Sailing (for French Twist).

For the Noon by Noor F/W 2020 show, Nail Artist Ashanti Newman used Noor Rashid Al Khalifa and Haya Mohammed Al Khalifa’s inspiration of Bahrain’s traditional handcrafted doors and decorative architecture for this season’s nail inspiration. With a wide range of colors and textures used in these pieces, 10+Free Clean Nail Color’s MOON ROCKS (Indigo charcoal gray crème) shade was the perfect compliment.

While bold color is prominent, classic black and white looks (many with pops of color added) make this collection and fashion lover’s dream. Favorite looks from the Yanina SS20 Couture show include black dresses with the signature embroidery of filigree work, the nude illusion garden looks, and of course every look prominently in bold hues. Be still our hearts for that standout fuchsia Dusker with 3/4 sleeves and embroidered detail. We want that in our closet. The Yanina SS20 finale look was also a showstopper.

PFW: La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week: La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection

Haute Couture design sisters, Ewa Gawkowską and Margaret Szczęsną Marek are back with their La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. Inspired by the heart-melting poems of Sully Prudhomme, their ethereal Les Couleurs de l’Âme collection (roughly translated to “The Colors of the Soul”) celebrates the evanescent nature of women that inspired Prudhomme. Our first introduction to this stunning female designer label was their La Métamorphose Spring Summer 2019 Collection, a stunning pastel vision also inspired by women and poetry.

PFW: La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection PFW: La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection

We loved this excerpt from Sully Prudhomme’s poem

Deep in my heart, behind my brow,
There is a soul, invisible but manifest:
The suspicious will look for it;
I spread it, then feel it!

We think it perfectly describes the La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection, which was overflowing with its feeling of lightness, transparency, and grace. This transparency of the french tulles is sublimated with the chiffon, the silk, satin, and taffeta, in a whirl of jewel tones and true pastel colors.

PFW: La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection PFW: La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection

While the La Métamorphose SS2020 gowns were stunning, we found ourselves completely enamored with their pantsuits and trousered looks. While they were essentially structured, the pants still looked light and elegant. We especially loved the pant looks which boasted a flowing maxi jacket, asymmetrical dress, and chiffon train.

Paris Fashion Week

The term “pretty in pastels” does not do this collection justice but the looks are just oh so dreamy. We love a celebration of the feminine and the romantic and the La Métamorphose SS2020 Collection honors both. As with their Spring/Summer 2019 collection, this collection was filled with layers of strategically placed feathers, stones, embroidery, and flowers.

Paris Fashion Week

We’re excited to see what their next collection will be. We want to see if they will continue being inspired by poetry and women. Are you as excited about PFW as we are? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this Paris Fashion Week show.

The Results Are In: Here’s the Pantone Color Trend Report for SS2020

From residence to the runway, there are trends in design and style that people tend to flow with.
Even though angsty autumn colors are on their way, let’s check out what the color trends will be in fashion and design in 2020 with the new Pantone color trend report for New York Fashion Week.

Bright yellows have been on-trend for a couple of years now, but Saffron is taking it to the next level. This brilliant yellow color is the dose of fun and vitality we’ll need to make it through the cold winter months to come. If you’re one of the many businesses that haven’t updated their site in the last two or three years, using this color might be the boost you need to attract user attention.

Classic Blue

Pantone claims that this color is akin to an evening sky “opening us up to a world of possibilities.” When you wear this dreamy dark blue, it’s up to you to make your dreams into a reality.

Biscay Green

Coral Pink
