NICOLE MILLER SPRING 2017 REVIEW

CF. Goldman RTW Spring 2017


For spring, Nicole Miller took an imaginative trip to Panama. The Central American country, and its colorful textile tradition and craftsmanship, were major inspirations for the New York-based designer, who combined rich patterns, embroideries and prints with more metropolitan elements. Fitted dresses were trimmed with ruffles and featured graphic multicolor motifs, which also appeared on the jacquard sleeves of a utilitarian parka.

Playing with contrasts, Miller unconventionally used a high-end tweed fabric for a sporty bomber jacket paired with an allover-embroidered miniskirt, and crafted an anorak from romantic eyelet cotton. The collection’s focus on textures, sometimes created with embroideries of multicolor beads, was also evident in a pretty cotton sweater embellished with fringe and worn with fluid ruffled shorts.

RIHANNA “SETS IT OFF” AT BERGDORFS

It’s every designer’s dream to have their collection be carried at Bergdorf Goodman,” Rihanna proclaimed Tuesday afternoon at a frenzied personal appearance for the retail unveiling of her fall Fenty by Puma collection.

The Barbadian singer was joined by Bergdorf president Joshua Schulman and “homegirl Linda,” senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation Linda Fargo — as a contingent of Rihanna fans swarmed the retailer’s fifth floor, tunes blaring.

The majority of attendees appeared to be students from nearby fashion universities, including the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design.

While scheduled for 3 p.m., the event didn’t start until nearly two hours past its call time — leaving some attendees with a dilemma.

Ariana, a 20-year-old student at FIT, said she was “debating if I should skip class, I have merchandising math at 5:10.” Spotted an hour later, it appeared that she had.

“I want to get the creepers,” Ariana said of her intentions for staying — noting that the continuously sold-out style is a must-have item amongst the FIT student body. “Before this, no one was buying Puma. [Rihanna] managed to make it big again,” she added.

Aasha, a 19-year-old New School student and intern for Alastair McKimm — who styled the fall Fenty for Puma campaign, already has a pair of creepers. She was in the room to nab one of the collection’s fur hoodies. “I like the collection — it is a mix of edgy and girliness at the same time.”

Whitney Lam, founder of the women’s lifestyle blog Nitrolicious, summed up Fenty’s popularity: “Anything Rihanna touches becomes popular. There is not really women’s streetwear like this produced with a big brand.”

Within 15 minutes of Rihanna’s ribbon-cutting, Bergdorf’s stock of shoes had sold out, as well as much of its apparel.

Schulman in his opening remarks at the event said, “The whole world is talking about ath-leisure, but here at Bergdorf’s we are all about ath-glamour.”

Discussing the decision to welcome Rihanna to Bergdorf’s, Schulman told WWD, “For us, Rihanna is an icon and when we first saw the [Fenty fashion] show Linda Fargo and I were so excited about it because we really felt that our customer would love this. It’s a very sexy, very modern approach to activewear.

Fashion Week Paris Couture Fall-Winter 2016-2017 – Franck Sorbier

COUTURE fswpa99.08fr

Once upon a time, a couple of artisans, their friends were calling them The Sorbier. Isabelle was painting fabrics, taking care of the studio and so much more things. Franck, as for him, was sewing, drawing and dreaming still and always. They had many birds, lovebirds, and liked passionately the couture. This season, they have decided to go for a new adventure: create a new colorful and joyful collection for little girls. With the best wish of a mini team of mouse and baby mouse, they have succeeded in building this story in a short period of time.

K fswpa99.22fr

Rodrigo and Bruno, their former loyal colleagues have given them an outside helping hand. After a perilous voyage in Saint Petersburg, they have decided to pay tribute to Slav folk tales. There would be colors, drawings, lightness and they hope retail. A new life. There would be Lady in black, they would be magnificently Haute Culture (no there is no typing error). They would have a role to hold on to. Just as every season, the fairy Christine looked after their happiness and success. Véronique Valcke, the season’s godmother, had invited them in her garden suspended in the Paris sky. On this occasion, a cake in the shape of a bulb of an Orthodox basilica was created with the collaboration of the pastry chef Sebastien Reul.

Andréa the passionaria have presented them Pascal Contet, a virtuoso accordion and also a crazy hatter for Panama hats designed after this little company colors. There were also generous lace sponsors, Mr Noyon and Mr Beauvillain. The beauty magician Shiseido and their ambassador Pierre Rocca, the hairstyle magician Alexandre de Paris and his ambassadors Jean-Luc Minetti and Fréderic Pavard offered their expertise to make the tale soft and sublime. They have discovered their “mini models” in Jennifer Goubé dance class and also by word of mouth in the trust circle.

GIE AXA France and members of the endowment fund Sorbier carry on with their loyal and active support. Stéphane Thouron for the Hotel Bavarez, Audrey Boucharlat and Anissa Tahidi for Wolford, Lanson Champagne have waved their magic wands that all is good and well. The Cornillon knight, Frédéric and Stéphane, always coming to the rescue and with drums beating closed proudly the steps.

Victoria Justice gets ready poolside with British beauty lifestyle brand, Soap & Glory

Soap & Glory, the fun, fearless and fabulous British beauty lifestyle brand, brought their glamazing beauty boudoir to the annual Mack-a-pool-ooza music festival in Miami Beach, FL on Saturday, August 13th. Sharing in all the #BigPrimpin fun, actress and recent Teen Choice Awards host, Victoria Justice stopped by Soap & Glory’s beauty boudoir, getting all made up and posing in the Soap & Glory gif booth while dancing and soaking up the sun poolside.
VICTORIA sg01.05com-victoria-justice5
While hanging out at the boudoir, Victoria Justice chatted with iHeartRadio’s DJ Gabby Sanderson about all things beauty, including how she got ready for today, “I used Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter body butter and I loooove it, it smells so good and it’s so creamy and awesome! And then I also used Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker lipstick today, it’s called Cerise Please. I love it,” said Justice. “One thing that is always so much fun, is lip color. You can go bold, just a hint of color or just really fun outrageous colors that you wouldn’t normally wear. I love matte shades, glossy and everything in between. Lip colors for me, just really can make any fashion look complete and can reflect the way you’re feeling.” What’s her plan for the pool party? “I have a few friends that are meeting me here, and we’re going to dance and have a good time. And my sister’s here too so it’s going to be a lot of fun!” When asked about her ideal girl squad Justice shared, “I love Kristen Wiig, I’m obsessed with her. I love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I would love to have those girls in my squad.” On working with Laverne Cox in the upcoming The Rocky Horror Picture Show, “It was amazing. She is so fiercely talented and so smart and very professional, and she just gives everything 150%.”

Decked out with pinkredible flamingos, a snow cone cart and more, the Soap & Glory boudoir was the hottest poolside beauty spot! The all-singing, all-dancing Glory Girls provided major glam for all festival-goers looking to get ready with their squad before heading to the concert.
