Fashionistas love Moschino like a feisty, always ahead, quirky child. Through the decades, this iconic fashion brand has supplied gawking fashion fans with garments that are downright beautiful and odd at the same time. Moschino has thrived on always thinking outside the box, and crafted creations that you’ve never thought of including in your yearly fashion stash.
The people behind this famous fashion line have sparked many trends that channel bravado in its every possible shift. Truly, Moschino rocks the realm again with its latest ‘It’s Lit’ fashion line, which was seen the runway of the recently concluded Milan Fashion Week.
Moschino pumped up the game by getting Jeremy Scott into the picture, who prolifically sent out 59 pieces and a variety of looks leaving people in awe. Moschino’s fall collection is as fiery as it can be, literally sending the eccentric-designed runway into a blazing catwalk, all heated up by Scott’s genius just for the brand.
Many people have rumbled about when the first set of the collection will come tumbling down the runway, through the style and pizzazz of the fortunate models selected to give life to this smoking Scott slash Moschino collaboration.
Guests were treated as if they were transported into a different era, exposing them to a yellowing mansion, complete with ruins and gilded frames, defunct piano sets and evident baroque-inspired seats.
Aside from pleasing the eyes of its attendees, Moschino also gifted everyone in the showroom an exclusive ‘Fashion Kills’ phone case which takes on the pattern of a cigarette pack. Furnished with Moschino’s memorable logo and the makings of a Marlboro red pack, it’s definitely dandy to carry, exuding character and fashion sense all at the same time.
Jeremy Scott improvised on some of the existing trends we have seen over the years, giving it a grander perspective to be classified as high-fashion. The first part of the show was a mix of gowns, denim pieces strewn on moto-boots and a lot of leathery items.
The most impressive was Scott’s ability to put these materials together either one at a time to give it time to shine, or together which made it a convincing ensemble. Lexi Boling, a Moschino favorite, opened the fall collection, adorned with a steamy leather gown and an unzipped slit which made the look even stronger.
Staying true to the ‘It’s Lit’ campaign, Moschino and Scott prepared world-famous model Anna Cleveland to walk the runway in a literally smoking 1940s-inspired blue and black gown, which made the crowd frenetic. Scott’s chandelier gown also snatched everyone’s attention, proving that he can make almost anything a work of art when translated into fashion.
Some other models who made this Fall Collection a success include Imaan Hammam, Romee Strijd, Taylor Hill, Stella Maxwell, Issa Lish and Omahyra Mota.

If there’s one person that’s omnipresent in all corners of the fashion world today, it would have to be Karl Lagerfeld. Do not compare his name to other celebrities that have been launching lines here and there as his is a legitimate fashion authority that knows what works and what doesn’t in the ever changing field of fashion.
His expertise, vision and unquestionable taste when it comes to setting the next trend have been recognized making him the head of elite fashion houses including Chanel and Fendi.
Overseeing clothing lines for two labels not to mention of his own can sound time consuming, but it is as if Lagerfeld has the luxury of getting more hours in a day as it was also announced that he will pursue the delicate field of weddings. As if fulfilling dreams of women through his creations are not enough, this designer has entered into the lives of ladies from all over the world in a more intimate manner when he decided to work on this latest venture that he’s in.
An engagement is deemed to be one of the most important chapters in a woman’s life and Lagerfeld is making it even more special by conceptualizing rings that would symbolize a woman’s transition toward marriage. Collaborating with Frederick Goodman, fashion’s supreme influencer launched his own line of engagement rings that’s intended to attract the contemporary taste of the millennials.
“The rings had to express something that concerns the heart and real feelings,” the designer mentioned on one of his interviews. “It has to be a symbol and a sign of a real wish of engagement. It has to be elegant but not bling-bling.” (Cited: http://www.highsnobiety.com/2016/05/31/karl-lagerfeld-engagement-rings/).
Knowing Lagerfeld’s caliber, expect a high-end structure that’s screams class and elegance. So far, peeks into two designs have been made available to the public. These rings will be distributed in the United Sates, the UK, Canada and Australia.
The price range would start from $1, 000 to $10,000.The rings will be adorned with 18 karat white and yellow gold together with platinum.
Here’s a Peek at the Engagement Rings Designed By Karl Lagerfeld:

Breaking borders, the world of fashion has always been open to all kinds of people despite race, age, gender and color. It is through this industry that everyone gets to say what he or she wants, and gets everything that he or she needs. Here, people can wear whatever outfit they deem necessary for an occasion, or she can use that black-colored lipstick on her way to work because she feels beautiful in it.
Fashion and the mechanisms that make it work are always open to ideas, and it is through people’s differences that fashion has been blossoming incessantly ever since people treated it as a basic necessity. A few months after her controversial and liberating ‘exposure’ phase, Caitlyn Jenner is treading the waters of fashion and beauty, and her first stint is a collaboration with world-renowned makeup brand, M.A.C.
Known as a brand which is gender and race-sensitive, M.A.C. eagerly announced that Caitlyn Jenner will be the face of their latest line of lipsticks come April. Many have jokingly commented that there are now two Jenners who can rock lip products: one is Kylie and the other one is Caitlyn.
People from all over the world are nothing but excited about this latest venture. This transition of Caitlyn as she bravely shares it to the world inspired M.A.C. to contact her and translate her story to a lipstick shade inspired solely by her liberating act of loving her gender as it really is.
M.A.C. named the collection #MACCaitlynJenner, which would definitely appeal to women and transgender people who love the striking palette of rose mixed with a hint of maroon. According to the makeup brand, the aforementioned collection would be initially offered to the market with one shade entitled Finally Free, a very strong depth of rose which will suit every woman’s need to enhance their looks.
The selling price of Finally Free is at $17, definitely within the right pricing of every M.A.C. product that has been released in the market. According to M.A.C., the lipstick would still bear all the makings of their legendary assets, proving that makeup will make you look better and function well regardless of what you’ll pay for.
One heartwarming thing about Caitlyn Jenner’s latest collaboration with the infamous brand is the philosophy of giving back. All proceeds of the Finally Free lipstick will be given straight to M.A.C.’s AIDS Fund Transgender Initiative, a cause that the brand has started to aid people who are infected with the disease, alongside helping them to rebuild their lives.
The Caitlyn Jenner lipstick will be out in the market specifically in April 7, and by the looks of it, these would be gone out of the shelves as quick as when Kylie’s own lipstick are up for purchase. The Jenners have established a strong foothold on both the fashion and the beauty industry and it is quite expected that Caitlyn’s stint will be well on its way to success.
Furthermore, there have been rumors that Caitlyn Jenner is also preparing to release a line of her own, which would include make-up, skincare and perfume.

It seems like the surname Hadid will continue to take the modelling world by storm as yet another beautiful product from this bloodline has officially been announced to spearhead a major campaign by well-known French fashion house, Givenchy. Earlier sightings of Bella Hadid may be associated with her supermodel sister Gigi and famous BFF Kylie, but the 19-year old stunner is proving that she’s more than just eye candy seen arm and arm with the who’s who.
Gone were the days when we would see her having fashionably good times during Coachella together with her equally beautiful best friends. With her recent appearances, Bella is sending a message that she herself is a brand that needs to be taken seriously. The girl can sell, no doubt. With her dusky features and attractive legs, who wouldn’t be convinced?
Those legs! Who will ever forget that teasing red gown with the sky high slit she wore during this year’s Cannes? While some are still wondering why the Cannes Festival is surrounded by models when it is in fact a film festival, Bella’s arrival shut all the questions down. No words were needed. Her presence and rocking physique were more than enough.
As if getting stints from magazines and fashion shows were not enough, the younger Hadid is making big steps all at once as she, alongside other supermodels like Lily Aldridge and Irina Shayk, will be the face of Givenchy’s Fall collection this year. This, together with her recently bagged Dior beauty ad marks a promising career for the budding model who is expected to make it huge just like her sister, Gigi.
On the said ad, Hadid is clothed uniformly with seven other models all poker-faced. Looking at this ad will make you think that there’s no room for monkey business should you be a Givenchy woman.
Photographed by the renowned Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, this fall campaign conveys a strong message that will definitely capture both the attention and even the dimes of the buying public.

This year’s MET Gala has been graced by the infantry of belles who own some of the most beautiful faces in the world of fashion. If being trendy is a powerful force, then count the Balmain Army as one of the most anticipated troops as they will definitely stop the show and steal the attention of the viewing crowd.
We have known the Kardashians as the frontrunners of the hailed Balmain Army. We already expect their appearance, and this was fulfilled as they walked down the red carpet wearing shiny and stunning ensembles that definitely patterned this year’s theme entitled Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
While it wasn’t a full blown family affair as only four members, Kris, Kylie, Kim and Kanye attended the event, the glamour brought by the spirit of Balmain Army wasn’t tarnished one bit.
A glamorous backup group was also sent to complete the entire lineup, representing the brand’s charm and magic just for this one-night-only event.
The whole Balmain entourage is a group that truly added light to the said celebration. It’s like we attended the New York fashion week once again as high ranking models lined up to represent the brand in a dazzling way. Top models Alessandra Ambrosio, Jourdan Dunn and Doutzen Kroes were present to serve as a powerful reminder of the label’s strong presence as channeled through its muses.
However, the surprise didn’t stop there. If you think dressing the world’s most famous reality stars and top models all in one event seems over the top, wait until you learn that the one and only Cindy Crawford also joined today’s most fashionable army.
While the names that make up the Balmain Army can change from time to time, 2016 MET marked that the label’s current fashionable troop is its best by far.
Crawford, who happens to be an iconic emblem of the fashion industry returned that said night, proving that she hasn’t lost her edge and spark that made her one of history’s most distinct fashion personalities.

Retail store Marks & Spencer already presented its autumn collection this year, but unlike the olden time’s tradition wherein only the who’s who of fashion get pieces earlier than their actual release, the brand innovated by making it available as early as possible for everyone.
Marks & Spencer jumped into the bandwagon of the see-now-buy-now trend when it comes to fast fashion together with other known labels such as Burberry and Tom Ford. This brand behavior will allow people to make purchases of their latest collections without breaking a sweat as these collections will be readily available in their stores even if it is too early for the intended season.
It may be summer in most places, but Marks & Spencer’s 2016 autumn collection is definitely wearable even amid the hot weather.
Characterized by midi skirts, knits, wide legged pants and the return of culottes, the brand definitely offered a wide range of pieces that are wearable in summer, autumn and even the cold weather of fall. The collection embodies timeless British fashion as shown in most parts of the collection.
It is like street style meets glam because each part of the collection is wearable and can go well when it comes to mixing and matching. The genius concept of universal functionality in design translated into clothes not only helps brands to convert their collection into real time sales, it also feeds the shoppers’ desire for satisfaction by getting the latest in the world of fashion through buying.
The trend of straight from the runway availability in terms of garments is groundbreaking because it defies the old behavior of the industry wherein only A-listers and fashion editors have exclusive access to the early release of collections. This behavior of fashion houses somehow creates an equal chance between the common buyers and the privileged to provide a fair opportunity for all.
Marks & Spencer unveil their autumn 2016 collection – and these are the pieces you can buy today:
Yves Saint Laurent’s influence has been deeply etched on the halls of the fashion industry. The brand’s relentless efforts to contribute something innovative, refreshing and impressive have been evident through the humongous amount of sales it amasses every single year and the strong staying power emanating from its walls.
Many fashion houses nowadays have gained inspiration from how Yves Saint Laurent has done it over the years, and by the looks of it, the brand is nowhere close to collapse especially with the recent change that it announced to the world.
Replacing Hedi Slimane from the creative director post, a man named Anthony Vaccarello has reverberated through the fashion industry just recently due to this very shocking appointment. After the founder of Yves Saint Laurent vacated the post last 2002, many names have sprouted to bequeath the title such as Slimane, Tom Ford, Alber Elbaz and Stefano Pilati, but Vaccarello was not as familiar as others.
Hedi Slimane spearheaded the brand with flying colors and raised the brand’s name quite high in the industry’s food chain. With huge shoes to fill, Anthony Vaccarello is now geared up and ready to put the company through a whirlwind of creative surprises for the next coming months, with many fashion analysts trusting the new creative head’s innate command in setting trends while always moving forward.
Hailing from the same fashion school as Paco Rabanne’s Julien Dossena and eponymous designer Cedric Charlier, Anthony Vaccarello mastered the complexities of fashion in La Cambre. Born in the fashion-saturated city of Brussels, Vaccarello has Italian blood flowing through him, which explains why he’s a natural when it comes to styling and designing.
It can be remembered that this designer is known for his high-slit and sultry pieces, coupled up with the technical aspects of structure and form. Some of the many models who wore Vaccarello creations include Anja Rubik, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls.
He also led Versus Versace in 2015 as the official creative head after Donatella Versace paid close attention to his talent and invited him over to display his skills during a prosperous fashion show last 2013.
Upon filling the creative director post for Yves Saint Laurent, it has been reported that Anthony Vaccarello left Versus Versace with the blessing of Donatella herself. Also, some statements have been released that all existing collections from Yves Saint Laurent will be halted once Vaccarello starts his work to pave way for a single-minded pursuit, both for the new creative director and the company.
Now that a new head is sitting on the throne, there have been many reports that Yves Saint Laurent will take a bolder and a steamier disposition, appealing to a larger market.

Whenever you ask a very trendy person about what sunglasses one should be wearing to look fab and not drab, he or she would certainly recommend getting a pair from Oakley.

There’s no denying that Oakley has dealt with the demands of the fashion industry with class and finesse, and it is sure that this established sunglasses manufacturer would stay for quite a long time.
Oakley first introduced polarized lenses, which were promulgated in the early 2000s. With the core purpose of blocking-off polarized light from outside nuisances such as the sun’s rays, these specialized types of lenses are a great deal for those who want their sunglasses to ‘really’ function. Polarized lenses are known to block almost 99% of glare from sunlight, and those which are reflected by water and snow.
Oakley is also known to own the clearest sets of polarized lenses in the fashion market due to the fact that their pairs are not manually glued because it uses technology called ‘infusion molding’. The type of lens molding that Oakley has been boasting about gives their one-layered polarized lenses strength, durability and clarity when used.
The illustrious fashion industry would not let this innovation pass, and so they have scoured sports stores just to cop a pair from Oakley.

A classic is definitely difficult to replace and only its makers can create a new version to top it. We have seen brands resurrect their old designs for the sake of innovation, while others do exert gargantuan efforts to produce a better version to utterly please their fans. Usually, the ‘pulling out of the closet’ move is done on anniversaries or special occasions and brands plan for it well to be successful.
We have seen eponymous fashion names such as Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Gucci giving their market a breath of fresh air by revolutionizing some of their old blueprints to offer the hypnotizing beauty of the new. This year, another respectable fashion name is about to exude the same virtue, and they mean business in celebrating their 40th anniversary.
Founded in 1975, the Connecticut-based leather goods company Dooney & Bourke is commemorating their 45 years in the industry through the release of an enhanced classic product soon to hit the market. Dooney and Bourke have been widely known for their sophisticated approach in producing leather products such as bags and wallets, targeting all genders for their market.
Designer Peter Bourke and businessman Frederic Dooney have fused their skills to expand the brand’s market reach and product sustainability over the years, making them one of the most stable leather-goods manufacturers in the world.
Long gone are the tiring sessions at the flea market as Dooney and Bourke is now considered a status symbol. On their 40th anniversary, the brand cleaned their slate and released the Verona Collection, a line that’s a sure hit to their loyal patrons since the day they started. Now available for pre-orders and purchase, the Verona Collection is available at the bran’s official website, www.dooney.com and is expected to be exported to other countries as well.
The brand’s main goal for this specific line is to make people remember where they came from and what more they can do with what they currently have. Definitely a perfect embodiment of the past meeting the present, the Verona Collection is such a treat for leather bag lovers who don’t want to spend that much money on such an irresistible investment.
Owner Frederic Dooney himself chose to revive the tongue-and-loop bags which made the brand so famous during the 1990s and are said to be the main component of the famous All-Weather Range they had back then. Also, the team has decided to retain the trusted materials used for the past line including smooth and pebbled leather elements.
Buyers will also have the chance to pick between 11 color palates available for the Verona Collection, which are carefully hand-picked including aubergine, blue, white and red. This line will also make use of a matte-finish logo plate to signify the brand’s ceaseless attempts to modernize.

Disney Dooney and Bourke Bag – 40th Anniversary
You might remember that awesome show back in December 2015 when talented punk rocker and scene stealer Beth Ditto collaborated with eponymous fashion brand jean Paul Gaultier. Surprising the audience and the whole world, Ditto strutted the runway fiercely wearing a T-shirt as if the catwalk is where she should be and not under the limelight of the music industry.
After her success as the front liner of dance-punk trio called the Gossip, this self-described ‘chubby kid’ from Searcy Arkansas is geared to enter the fashion industry with her very own clothing line. Maybe we will all miss her and reminisce while listening to songs like Heavy Cross and Standing in the Way of Control, but many fashion experts are anticipating Ditto’s next move within the field of style and design.
The long wait is over as she’s bound to make plus-size women like her comfortable with their figures through a well-thought of line now dotting fashion stands.
Earlier in the spring of 2016, Beth Ditto wowed the crowd with her very own venture into a collection that speaks so much of her loud yet very creative personality. Known to advocate women who do not conform to the standards of modern fashion, Beth Ditto’s philosophy has been channeled through this 21-piece clothing line and many consumers are battling it out just to cap a piece.
Now that Gossip is out of the picture, Beth Ditto decided to pursue a career in the fashion industry, further expanding her reach to women who have suffered for a long time because of weight issues. Also, this move made by Ditto was quite expected as she has been known to stretch her capabilities as a designer when she helped the British brand Evans, which catered to plus-size RTW items.
One thing noticeable about the Ditto’s collection is the conscious effort to stray away from common plus-size fashion. Known to be generally naïve and conserved, plus-size offerings can certainly be boring at times and never really highlighted how wonderful a woman should feel when dressing up. Made to cover sizes from 14 through 24, Ditto’s designs scream for attention as more consumers can take advantage of the size range provided.
Furthermore, everyone should expect that the types of clothing, print and materials used transcend Ditto’s innards and personality that they have been viewed as fun, playful and loud by those who have seen it. Some of the prints and styles that you can adore include quirky lipstick prints, dresses made to highlight luscious curves, graceful tops and blush satin.
Beth Ditto’s collection is currently priced at a minimum of $65 for funky T-shirts up to lavish jumpsuits reminiscent of Saks Fifth Avenue at $395.
The prized pieces of this clothing venture can be checked on her official website, www.bethditto.com and see for yourself the wide array of colors, prints and patterns that are truly Beth Ditto-inspired.
