Trend Alert: Stripes

3:51 AM Dowy 0 Comments

In my opinion the trend that defines spring/summer 2013 is stripes. You’ve seen it everywhere, from runways to street style, from high fashion, to casual wear. I’ve been seeing it on every runway, every fashion show, and every magazine. It’s the one thing that kept repeating itself, but in the same way. I haven’t seen two stripes that looked the same.

My absolute favorite one was Oscar de la Renta’s breath-taking gown. Marc Jacobs also dedicated nearly a whole show to the sacred stripes. There were thick stripes, thin stripes, horizontal stripes, vertical stripes, metallic stripes, and chevron stripes.

 Stripes were used in shows from Derek Lam, Acne, Belstaff, Etro, Holly Fulton, Haider Ackermann, J Crew, Issey Miyake, Markus Lupfer, Michael Kors, PPQ, Jonathan Saunders and Rachel Zoe.

I’m sure you got my point now, though. Stripes are huge for Spring/Summer 2013 and pretty much any way you can think of to wear them, you'll be on trend. From ballroom to living room, adopt a stylish stripe and make it your own.


Happy Mother's Day

Mother’s are the only ones who give without expecting, love with no conditions, and take care of you without limits. They’re a gift sent from god to make our lives a better place, a happier place, to nurture and to support us. They have always been there for us. So it’s only fair we give them back some of the love they have been giving us all these years. Let’s celebrate our heroes on their day (March 21st). And If I may say, we should celebrate them everyday. So happy mother’s day to all the moms around the world. Without them, nothing would have been possible, so thank you for everything.

Here are some of the pictures in honor of my mom.

The bouquet is from Spring Rose and it was a giveaway which I won from Ruba Fahhd's blog, Thank you Ruba for the most amazing bouquet.

Art Beat

In tribute to women around the world, contemporary artist Jan Lisman created the evocative symbol "Art Beat". The emblem expresses the need to adopt a different way of thinking, a call to action seeking to inspire an energized and feminine frame of mind. It was produced during the Fall/Winter 2013 Paris Fashion week by Mann & Miller and directed by Jan Lisman, in celebration of International Women's Day. The film stars several female fashion insiders holding an ipad with some words written on it, by Ash Bhalla and performed by Dolores Chaplin, the movie is extremely inspiring and  poetically articulates the aspirations underlying Jan Lisman's "Art Beat".

Diet Coke announced that leading visionary, and fashion designer, Marc Jacobs, has been unveiled as Creative Director exclusively for 2013. The partnership was an exciting element of the ‘Sparkling Together For 30 Years’ campaign, as the brand celebrates their 30th Anniversary.
Marc Jacobs stamped his unique vision, and exquisite taste to the brand, by creating a limited edition collection of must-have bottles and cans, uniting the stylish and light-hearted personalities of both icons. 

Inspired by the three decades, the chic designs capture the rise of female empowerment through the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, with a whimsical twist, a true to Jacobs’ signature style.

I’m dying to get my hands on these amazing works of art, including Marc Jacobs himself heheh. They are true timeless art pieces!
