Trend Alert: Faldas Plisadas (Accordion Pleated Skirts)

Una de mis tendencias favoritas para la primavera es la falda plisada. Aunque para ese entonces van a estar en todos lados, también son perfectas para usar en el invierno, por lo que son una prenda de inversión. Las hemos visto sobre las pasarelas desde hace varias temporadas, pero ultimamente todos los diseñadores parecen incluir por lo menos un modelo en sus colecciones.

Son femeninas y elegantes, eso sí, hay que tener en cuenta el hecho de que suelen agregar un poco de volumen en las caderas. Son ideales para combinar con balerinas o tacos, camisas o sweaters de lana, tanto para el día como la noche. Las hay largas y cortas, en varios colores (pasteles para la primavera y tonos tierra para el próximo invierno) y en diversos materiales incluyendo cuero.

Por lo que he visto en las tiendas uruguayas, se las puede encontrar en Lemon, Daniel Cassin, Rapsodia y Zara. A continuación pueden ver fotos de las faldas en pasarela y un poco de streetstyle para inspirarse. ¡Hay que animarse a usarlas este año!

Itaú MoWeek Invierno 2012 (Fall/Winter 2012)

Para este 2012 me propongo (realmente) publicar más contenido uruguayo. Se que siempre lo digo pero ésta vez prometo hacerlo. La moda en Uruguay está creciendo a pasos agigantados y cada vez más surge excelente material que merece ser difundido. Hoy les presento, con gran emoción, la nueva campaña de Itaú MoWeek.

Itaú MoWeek es la semana de la moda de Montevideo y el 20, 21 y 22 de abril se va a celebrar la cuarta edición (Invierno 2012). En esos días se presentarán numerosas marcas y diseñadores uruguayos tanto en pasarela como en showrooms. Si vivis en Uruguay es un evento que no te podes perder y si tenés la oportunidad de estar por éstos lados en esa fecha recomiendo visitarlo.

Arriba publiqué la foto de la nueva campaña, que, en mi opinión, es la mejor que se ha hecho en éstas cuatro ediciones. La modelo es Katharina Kaminski (actualmente en Paris con Angels & Demons) y las prendas son de Valevaluchi, una de las diseñadoras uruguayas más talentosas.

This year I want to start posting more about uruguayan fashion. I know I always say that but this time I promise I will. Uruguayan fashion is developing really fast and so there's constantly new excelent material that deserves to be shown. Today I want to present, with lots of excitement, the new Itaú MoWeek campaign.

Itaú MoWeek is Montevideo's fashion week and on april 20, 21 and 22nd we will be celebrating its fourth edition (Fall/Winter 2012). In those days several uruguayan brands and designers will be showing off their new colections on the runway or showrooms. If you live in Uruguay, you can't miss this event and if you have the opportunity to be in town during those days I highly recommend you visiting Itaú MoWeek.

Above you can see a picture from the new campaign, that, in my opinion, is the best one from the four they've done. The model is Katharina Kaminski (currently in Paris with Angels & Demons) and the clothes were made by Valevaluchi, one of the most talented designers Uruguay has.

Capes, Ponchos & Parkas

New York Fashion Week is almost over and while designers are showing their latest collections (F/W 12.13), here in Uruguay we are getting ready for winter. Well, not really, it's freacking hot here! But most brands are starting to show their fall collections and obviously new trends are emerging.

For winter there's nothing that I like more than a cozy, warm coat. This season is all about capes, ponchos and parkas, so here's a look at what designers showed almost a year ago on the main fashion weeks.

New York Fashion Week está casi terminando y mientras los diseñadores muestran nuevas colecciones (otoño/invierno 2012/2012), en Uruguay nos estamos preparando para el invierno. Bueno, ni tanto, hace mucho calor todavía! Pero la mayoría de las marcas están presentando sus colecciones de invierno y obviamente podemos percibir nuevas tendencias.

Para el invierno no hay nada que me guste mas que un abrigado y cómodo tapado. Esta temporada se van a usar las capas, ponchos y parkas, por eso les presento un resumen de lo que mostraron los diseñadores hace casi un año en las principales semanas de la moda.

The short cape: Max Azria, Lanvin and Zero + Maria Cornejo

The white poncho: Halston, ADAM and Band of Outsiders

Young vibe: Rag & Bone, Chloé and Rag & Bone

Sophisticated in black: Tommy Hilfiger, Yves Saint Laurent and Tommy Hilfiger

New sensations

Fashion is all about changes. From trends to models, there is nothing that the fashion crowd loves more than new things. And so, designers, editors and fashionistas are constantly on the search of new style icons to get inspired from.
Hollywood has been a great source of style icons ever since the times of Audrey Hepburn, giving each generation its very own fashion icon. Nowadays it seems that the new Hollywood it girls have also become fashion's latest obsessions: Chloe, Elizabeth, Elle, Felicity and Rooney. Meet the new girls who not only are taking Hollywood by storm but also are conquering the fashion business.

GIRLY GIRL: It's hard to say that Chloe Moretz is 14 years old, why? because she has incredible taste for a girl who is on her early teen. Chloe's style is fresh, young and fun, but at the same time sophisticated and high fashion, not to mention that she has worn everything from Versace to Proenza.
Left: Chloe in Kenzo. Middle: Chloe in a Dolce & Gabbana black lace dress. Right: Chloe in a Tommy Hilfiger head-to-toe look.

THE NEW GIRL: MKA who? There's a new Olsen in town and just like her older sisters she has several fashion statements to make. Her style is flawless, unique and very elegant, and so not many can pull off  her original outfits.
Left: Lizzie in probably one of my favourite looks EVER with a T by Alexander Wang blouse. Middle: Lizzie combines an Acne shirt with an Erdem printed skirt. Right: Lizzie wearing a Missoni for Target dress.

RISK TAKER: Elle may be often criticized for her looks, but the truth is that this 13-year-old (very talented) actress is still experimenting with her style, and I'm positive that she is on the right path to become the next fashion sensation.
Left: Elle in a Valentino long dress. Middle: Elle - who stared in the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 campaign - goes red in a Marc ensamble. Right: Elle in a Rodarte jumpsuit.

THE BRIT: Is she a model, is she an actress? I actually have no idea, but what caught my eye was Felicity's impecable and very british style. She definetely has that british attitude that compliments every outfit so well, specially when pulling off a Proenza Schouler look straight from the catwalk!
Left: Felicity in a Proenza Schouler look. Middle: Felicity in a classic black & white look with a twist: leather skirt and beautifully detailed blouse. Right: Felicity in a Valentino dress.

THE GRIL WITH THE BLACK DRESSES: every generation needs a daring girl who chooses Givenchy over Dolce & Gabbana, and Balenciaga over Versace. That girl is Rooney Mara, aka the actress from "The girl with the draggon tattoo". As she is travelling the world promoting her new movie, Rooney has proven that black is never boring and that you can be sexy by simply insinuating or showing the right parts.

Á la Balenciaga: Couture to wear

It looks like I ended up, once again, dedicating a single post to each collection I loved. I did it with Chloé and now the chosen one is Balenciaga's Spring 2012 collection. I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of the brand, I usually love a few looks and sporadically like the complete collection, but this season Nicolas Ghesquière created some of my favourite designs for spring/summer.

By now there is no need to say that geometry is a huge trend for spring/summer 2012 (as seen in Chloé and BCBG to name a few), and Balenciaga was no stranger to it. Geometric designs, prints, high-waisted pants and short shorts were the highlights of this couture/ready-to-wear collection, that without a doubt made tribute to those old Balenciaga collections - the ones that Cristobal himself used to made.

And the visors deserve a paragraph for themselves. Talk about innovating! I know it will take a lot of courage to step out in one of those (although I'm sure Anna dello Russo will surprise us all), but I have to admit that they looked amazing on the runway and added a futuristic vibe to the collection.

A Geometry & Colour Affair


I promised myself that my next post would be on my birthday. So here I am. To celebrate here's a small review of one of my favourite collections of the season: Chloé S/S 12.
Spring/Summer 2012 was marked as the season of new beginings. Lots of new talents became creative directors at top fashion brands, and Chloé was no exception. This time was Clare Waight Keller who thanked at the end of the show as she was the new designer at this legendary french house. She is replacing Hannah MacGibbon, who designed for Chloé since 2008, and this was Waight's first collection for the brand. She had previously worked for quite a long time for Pringle of Scotland and, at first, it seemed like an odd choice. But the result was pure Chloé perfection. Colour combination, geometry and flowy dresses were the stars of the show. The collection turns out to be right in the middle between innovation and continuation of MacGibbon's previous work. Here's a recap of some of the best looks:
