VERSACE Spring/Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear : Clothing for life after lockdown

2020 has definitely been “one of those years” for everyone… Being locked indoors for months on end the inevitable depression, anxiety and all around uncertainty have put a mental strain on everyone! 

I definitely felt like I needed a “reset” to get motivated again after lockdown was over…Unlike most people who go on a beach vacation for a refresher… I go to Fashion Week!

Sadly – My dreams of wearing a new fabulous outfit and sitting front row probably isn’t going to happen for a very long time…SOOOOO – I decided to take the virtual approach for this season. Definitely not the same – But still managed to catch all my favourite designers showcase their collections for the S/S 2021 season!

Versace is my favourite show on the fashion month calendar . Obviously – I was super excited to see this seasons collection. Even thought – I’m typically not a fan of Versace’s Spring/Summer fashion shows. THIS YEAR WAS NOOOOOO JOKE! 

The show took place in the underwater in the lost city of Atlantis, and was inspired by Gianni Versace’s ‘trésor de la mer’ collection for Spring 1992. Having only seen people rocking athleisure for the last couple of months, my jaw literally dropped when I saw the collection of long gowns, bright colour and SPARKLE that encompasses the house of Versace. Giving the world something to look-forward to hopefully to get dressed up and be fabulous again – Hopefully by spring/summer 2021 so we can wear these pieces? Only time will tell! 

Until next time, 

Sergio.

Backstage at Rodarte F/W 2020 with NARS Cosmetics – NYFW

During this most recent season of New York Fashion Week – I had the opportunity to go backstage with NARS cosmetics at the much anticipated Rodarte F/W fashion show! Being both a huge fan of Nars and Rodarte I was super excited!

Unlike the other shows I attended at Spring Studios- The venue for this season’s show was at the St.Bartholomew church in Midtown. I’ve hard lots about this church on movies and TV. But in person…It is much more breathtaking! 

This season – Rodarte went back to their gothic roots. Shown both in the clothing and the make-up for this collection. James Kaliardos the lead makeup artist for Nars cosmetics was on-site overseeing all the looks. Bella Hadid also made an appearance backstage before strutting her stuff on the catwalk. 

This was such an amazing opportunity. Thank you so much Nars and Rodarte for having me this season!

Until next time, 

Sergio.

PHILIPP PLEIN F/W 2020 – My new favourite fashion label!

You guys know I love Versace, Cavalli and Balmain…But there’s just something about Philipp Plein that just really speaks to me…

The Plein brand is growing internationally at a very rapid pace… (Faster than any other fashion label I’ve ever seen.) Rather than focusing his attention on North American. Plien expansion directly targets the biggest luxury consumer city in Europe and Asia! He has 80+ stores there, and continues to grow!

It’s rare to find a fashion label that can do both street style, and couture properly. $500 graphic shirt, and $135’000 sable floor length coats paired together in perfect harmony…with the perfect touch of sex appeal! 

For this collection – Not an inch of the models’ bodies wasn’t covered with either glittering crystals, punk studs or leopard print! The pictures speak for themselves! This collection was on fire!!!
