Attending Versace Fall/Winter 2019

Versace is always my most anticipated show during Milan Fashion Week. Considering the fact that the Pre-Fall show in NYC was so #MAJOR. I was excited to see what Donatella would come up with for Fall/Winter 2019. 

Having had my outfit pre-planed (Head to toe Versace of course) and having picked up my  invitation at the Via Montenapoleone Versace Boutique earlier that day, It was now show time! 

Kia Gerber, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid entered one after another. Gurung glamour has now become a popular trend. I was honestly a little surprised that Donatella took this collection in that route. However, I’m not mad at it! My favourite look would have to be the blue crystal beaded dress. But ultimately, I loved almost everything from this collection. Closing the show was former supermodel Stephanie Seymour wearing a black crystal beaded gown. This was the first time she hit the Versace runway in 20 years! What a way to close the show! 

Until next season, 

Sergio.

Attending Rosa Cha F/W 2019 – #NYFW

Rosa Cha built its reputation as one of Brazil’s most prominent premium brands by offering consumers a complete lifestyle collection, high-end swimwear to luxe ready to wear. Considering the fact that this was my last day in New York, I was excited to have been able to attend their F/W 2019 show. 

The silver glitter covered runway made for the perfect canvas to introduce Rosa Cha’s  unique proportions of this seasons line. Oversized sporty pieces were paired with perfectly fitted ones which made for an overall effortless elegance. I noticed that the cream and burgundy colour pallets are a huge trend during this season along with the use of sequin fabrics. Can I get a #YAS for sequins?  I’m enjoying the fact that more and more brands are starting to embrace the sparkle by incorporating more glamour into casual wear. 

I’m looking forward to attending the show again next season and seeing some fabulous woman-wear! 

Until next time, 

Sergio.

Attending – Sally LaPointe F/W 2019 – Backstage and Front Row

My New York fashion week started off with a 9 hour flight delay, a hefty flu and a small fortune worth of halls packets. Regardless of these inconveniences, I was excited to finally enjoy the fruits of my labour (A.K.A fashion month prep) by attending my first Sally LaPointe fashion show up on my indefinite arrival in New York City!

This season, Sally LaPointe transformed Spring Studio by doing an innovative set design which featured several large illuminated steel structures that created tunnels which highlighted each look as it came down the runway (Especially the sequin ones).

LaPointe’s label has built a reputation in the industry by innovative styling and fabrication of simplistic modern luxury garments. This season was no exception for the brand. Luxury knits and silks paired perfectly with matching accessories made the collection wearable enough for the office, but also glamours enough for the evening with the prominent use of  leather, snakeskin and sequins. There’s no doubt that Lapointe knows how to make glamorous garments while still keeping them wearable. I’m eyeing that mint jumpsuit for myself! 

I’m looking forward to seeing what Sally LaPointe does next. 

Until next time, 

Sergio.
