Hiya Poutlings

The renowned supermodel Michaela Kocianova is featured in the new Fall/ Winter 2012 collection of Suite Blanco. Michaela is 23 years old and from Slovakia. Being dazzling and perfect, Michaela Kocianova shows off her best to display the intriguing collection.

I absolutely love how simple, elegant this collection is.

Michaela’s slavic beauty was chosen for her sophisticated looks and internal elegance, that is highlighted by the new collection pieces from Suite Blanco. She wears things casually, yet looks stunning both the elegant formal burgundy dress, or the texas styled shirt and jeans.

Are you loving it?

NYFW : Norisol Ferrari Runway Show

Hiya Poutlings!

As I mentioned in my post about the Sheri Hill runway show, I am trying to keep updated with all the news from New York Fashion Week, but there is just an overload of amazing designers, models, and trends that I am struggling to keep ahead of it all. I will try and keep you updated with the most interesting stories, in my opinion of course 😉

For the past five days there has been nothing but familiar teenage faces pouting their way down the runway, show after show. So it’s refreshing to see a designer really kick the trend in the teeth and do something completely different. Possibly cast women that may just *gasp* around the same age as their respective target market. NORISOL FERRARI did just that at her show on Monday morning. Norisol Ferrari sent icons like Carol Alt, Alva Chinn and Carmen Dell’Orefice, who is 81 years young, down the catwalk amidst some of the fresher faces.

Alva Chinn – 57 Years Old

Carmen Dell Orefice – 81 Years Old

Carol Alt – 51 years old

The iconic faces were a huge hit amongst the crowd, especially since they didn’t just do the old walk-turn-repeat favoured by most of the designers these days. Alva Chinn for the most part, shashayed leisurely down the runway, stopping to strike a seductive pose or two along the way. Carmen Dell’Orefice also interrupted her walk to elegantly mug for the cameras, creating lots of applause amongst the audience.

It was a lot of enthusiam coming from the audience, which I would imagine are mostly Upper-East-Types (simply because I have watched Gossip Girl, hahaha) but then, these were definitely clothes for the confident, mature and above all sophisticated women. There was a definite femme fatale vibe to this collection, which included seaside separates paired with oversized hats, trim, neutral pieces and sweeping evening gowns, while I am not sure I have the attitude to pull off the saucer-sized chapeaux, I have no doubt Carmen Dell’Orefice and crew would put today’s street styles to shame under of those hats.

I certainly take my hat off to these ladies to remind the younger generation that this is certainly elegance in its finest form.

Louis Vuitton & Yayoi Kusama COLLABORATION!!

Heya Poutlings!

For a long time now I’ve been fascinated and somewhat amazed with the art and life of Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who has repetively made polka dot art for the last forty years. She is now 83 years old.

You read that right.

Forty years.

As in 40 years.

Almost twice my age.

THAT’S A LOT OF POLKA DOTS.

It seems that Louis Vuitton shares my interest too, and has released images of its collection inspired by Yayoi Kusama.

Unfortunately for us Africans, the collection is ONLY available in a few “choice” spots – it is popping up in Louis Vuitton’s New York City store from the beginning of this week and it will also be found at Printemps flagship in Paris and Selfridges in London.

A second collection on Yayoi Kusama’s pieces based on her “nerves” work, will be out in the northern hemisphere Autum, our spring this year.

My favourite look of infamous polka dot has to be the cute little hand bags and the raincoats come in second… What about you?
