1940 Menswear


Many decades ago, there is a great distinction between men and women’s wear. Men were stereotyped to wear trousers/pants while women have to put on skirts. With this perception, women prevented themselves from trying pants so that the society will not be offended.

In 1913, Paul Poiret designed one of the first pants for women. His creations were known as harem pants that were inspired by costumes of an Arabian opera show. Meanwhile, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel wore this tabooed outfit and began to create her own designs too. Chanel focused on creating comfortable pants that will be worn by women in sports activities especially horseback riding.

It was Marlene Dietrich and Audrey Hepburn who always include trousers in their fashion style. In addition to this publicity, Vogue magazine featured models in trouser in their 1939 issue. Since then, they became one of the most worn fashion style for women. Later on, they were matched with jackets to complete the business look.

For Fall 08/09 collection, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini explored the glamorous world of Bohemia. The collection is a combination of luxury with a bit of rock n’ roll.



Ornate embroidery with gold thread, metal disks, gold tassels and small beading touches everything from the sleeves of floaty silk dresses to the waists of cropped shearling jackets. Glittering metal or jeweled accents cover shoulders and hems, while sphere-like gold studs decorate the surface of bags, shoe booties and cropped leather jackets. The pants for this season is: narrow, low-waisted and with built-in stirrup closures. With grosgrain or passementerie piping, the pants are paired with soft embroidered shirts, heavy wool jackets covered in rich detail, and are tucked in to over-the-knee, fringed boots. Skirts, meanwhile are short, heavily decorated and paired with cropped hip-height jackets.

Check out Gucci's campaign ads for this collection and agreed with me that it brings out every woman's bohemian wild side.

The Cruise 2009 Collection of Oscar de la Renta is composed of 66 sophisticated wardrobe and was presented with elegance and style in a serene setting of cherry blossoms on white washed trees.

The collection include a number of stunning lace and silk dresses, crisp separates and grownup trousers with kaleidoscope of colors of corals, blues, pinks, yellows, emeralds and corals. At first glance, I thought I am viewing a Christmas collection. Everyone was surprised to see the mix of equestrian hats or the riding hats with a couple of the looks. The climax of the runway show was de la Renta's exhibition of voluminous gowns that quite literally had a five foot radius.

Louis Vuitton sued Nadia Plenser, a Danish student artist and designer, for her “Simple Living” campaign. Nadia is a fundraiser that supports the Divest for Darfur organization. She drew an image of a young Darfur child holding a chihuahua dog and sporting a designer bag that looked like the famous Louis Vuitton’s Murakami Multicolore canvas pattern. Louis Vuitton filed a lawsuit last April 15th and demands payment for their ‘intellectual property’.



Meanwhile, last April 29 Juicy Couture filed a lawsuit against Victoria's Secret Pink. They accused VS for using similar ideas and icons, such as their trademark seat-of-the-pants Juicy logo and selling apparel wrapped in the shape of lollipops and ice cream cones, mimicking the packaging used in Juicy's Sweet Shoppe.The company is asking for the offending clothing to be destroyed and to be awarded triple damages.

This January, there were lots of new fashion trends and predictions for spring/summer 2008. As I wander around the WWW, I was able to find these fashion trends and predictions that will possibly hit the fashion world in the next few days.

InterSélection

SPORTY - CHIC
The positive influence of sport revitalizes the codes of urban chic. The functional wardrobe, technical fabrics and details with an «active sport» connotation come into play for very cool fashion. Pale neutrals, dirty or refreshed pastels, to mix together, to disrupt with bright and unexpected accents. Scroopy hands, nylons and light cottons. «Cheap silky fabrics», plain weave silk, viscose twills. Shirting, solid and striped poplins, end-and end, oxfords, chambrays. Satins again and again! Fleece, terries, stretch fluid or chiné jerseys. Continuation of knits in bamboo and soybean, and organic cotton.

ETHNO - MIX
Culture of paradox, play of contrasts, new aesthetic rules. Heritage resources are drawn on to embellish and dream up a modern and effortless wardrobe. Unostentatiously sumptuous, floral colors evoke the exoticism and magic of dyes. Contrasting harmonies or faux monochromes are neutralized with faded tones. Light silky fabrics, taffetas, crêpes de Chine, satins. Glossy cottons, cotton sateen. Soft casual wear, heavy canvas, softened washed basket weave cottons, ring spun denim. Linen, hemp, textured rather than rustic! Oversize decoration. Japanese-style florals, plant landscapes, tattoos, bou-bou patterns, Madras checks, knit jacquards with stripe and basketwork motifs.



H&M

H&M's designers have created a beautiful collection with Marimekko's popular patterns from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s for the summer 2008. The collection of some 50 products will be sold in H&M's stores on all 28 markets from April 2008.

The collection, which has a graphic overall look, will comprise airy summer favorites such as wide 70s dresses, tunics, skirts and shorts for women. For men there will be classic summer shirts and shorts. There will be some items for children as well and all comes with accessories to match.

So you're up on the latest trends but aren't sure how to pull it all together? Don't worry, we're on the same boat. Watch out for the "holiday fashion" series. This one is for a start....

This season's ultra-feminine tie neck blouse is the perfect foil for menswear-inspired trousers, vests and blazers, as well as pencil skirts.

Keep your blouse from looking dowdy by pairing it with stylish pieces that fit perfectly. Show a little skin above the tie if possible. For example you can pair this soft yellow blouse with pinstripe wool trousers and purple flats. A silver handbag and purple cocktail ring complete the look.

As I do my regular blog/site hopping, I was fascinated with Victoria's Secret Pink collection. (I am a certified pink-oholic since birth, with addictions on green and purple.) A few days ago, I had a post about purple, "the new pink". Sad to say, purple dominated the fashion world which leave the pink-fanatics a slimmer chance flaunt a pink outfit.

So let me share with you the pink-est prezzles that caught my eyes in VS site.



The site offered their A-List Gifts for Victoria's Secret Pink collection. The list includes comfy, cozy and cute thermal, flannel, hoodies, sweats and sleepshirts galore; perfect for holiday PJ pants; adorable flip-flops and ballet slippers; trendy totes and laptop cases; sweet chillin' boxsie and hipster popper; and huggable pillows.

Gwen Stefani's collection revived early eighties ska/punk, complete with ankle-length stovepipes, checkers and tartans galore. To some the look is dear, feminine versions of schoolboy blazers with contrasting piping, cuffed shorts, argyle sweaters paired with button-down shirts and ties, bomber jackets in leopard-print satin and plaid "swinging" blazers.

However, fashion experts were not impressed with Stefani's evening looks, awkward mid-calf hemlines and cheap-looking fabrics that made the dresses look as though they were pulled from a thrift store bargain bin. Looking at the brighter side of life, every guest at the show received a full-sized bottle of the new L.A.M.B. fragrance and can have a million dollar picture of Gwen and Gavin Rossdale with their adorable baby.

It's a fashion cliché but it's true: this season grey is most definitely the new black. Many designers showed it head to toe.


Runway: Whatever you wore with black before, this season wear it with grey. Grey is the contemporary navy blue of fashion.

Reality: Grey will be a fabulous substitute for khaki, this neutral shade has a soft sophisticated edge. Evoke the 1950s cocktail era in a little gray dress, team gray with brown for luxusious look, or inject a dash of drama by mixing gray with canary yellow or red. An embellished little gray dress is a glittering day-to-night option. Slink into a slouchy sweater dress for off-duty chic. Contrast the pared-down hue with bright colored accessories or elegant box-clutch.
