The one with Kenzo x H&M.

by Effie in


Hey guys!

Have you got anything from H&M collaboration with Kenzo? I suspected that it won’t be as successful as the one last year with Balmain, but nobody thought it’s gonna be a total failure! I guess Balmain x H&Mcollection was a big hit mostly because of the campaign with Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner (that name appears on my blog for the first and probably the last time, you could call me anti-fan); but Kenzo collab had amazing people in their ads too! Iman, Rosario Dawson, Chance The Rapper - they could definitely convince me to buy some clothes. Maybe it wasn’t the right choice for the customer that H&M usually targets with their collab collections… Do you have any ideas? 

I know the collection itself was a little risky - colorful, bright, full of crazy prints (one could think that Carol Lim and Humberto Leon worked on it after crazy night of experiments with LSD), but to compare it with Balmain once again - funky, even tacky prints didn’t stop H&M customers before!

I got few pieces, one of them is cozy bomber jacket you see - how could I ever say no to bomber jacket? 

Let me know what you think about the collection!

The one with NYC.

Hey guys!

If you had to choose only one city to spend the rest of your life in, what would it be? My answer is simple - New York New York! Every time I go there, I fall in love with it all over again, it's so inspiring and refreshing (despite all the garbage in the streets, haha!).

In September I spent two days there and attended few shows at New York Fashion Week (another reason to love that city!). One of them was Cynthia Rowley Spring '17 Show - you can read about it here

Other shows I saw was Supima Collection Designer Competition Show and Misha Collection - I haven't taken many photos though (please forgive me!), I was too excited and majority of pics is blurry :D Seeing Supima Competition finalists' collections was very inspiring - I'm sure they'll make their impact in the fashion world very soon (my favorite line was Duston Jusso's, here is his Instagram profile; but the winner - Jeffrey Taylor also stunned with very girly and romantic dresses, find him here).

Misha Collection floored me. Even though I can't live without sneakers, denim and tshirts, I love me some feminine and sexy dresses! Seeing Misha's designs even made me want to practice walking in heels more :) And have all of her fabulous designs in my closet ❤️ (should I mention I fell in love with Jordan Dunn who opened and closed the show?). 

Do you guys have your favorite spots in NYC? Let me know, cause I know I'll go back there billion times!

Hey guys!

As I promised yesterday I'm posting more photos from one of the shows I attended this year at New York Fashion Week - Cynthia Rowley Spring '17. (There also will be one more post about NY - you already know how terrible I am with being on time, so I guess you're not surprised I'm doing it about 6 weeks later 😄)

Cynthia Rowley's show wasn't your typical runway show, it was an intriguing installation. (After seeing the invite I already knew it's going to be different). It took place at Cynthia Rowley headquarters in West Village, NY - thank God I was wearing waterproof makeup - it was about 100 degrees that day! Ad rem, though; for that day designer's headquarters changed into dreamy lounge or maybe rather best pillow fight spot ever! Ultra feminine collection looked incredible in a romantic setting like that - models could easily be mistaken for fairies and all designs immediately landed on my dream list (Santa, I hope we're on the same page!). I left the show inspired and committed to wear more girly and dreamy pieces - well I probably already looked kind of dreamy with few feathers from the installation stuck to my face. Anyway, I'm in love with that collection and already can't wait to see what Cynthia will create next year!
