CURRENT COLOR TREND; MUSTARD

Image

This fall, the color mustard is everywhere, yet its not one of our main hues for the season. Sometimes we add colours from our “secondary” color library to the main chart further into the season. This is what we decided to do with our “misty ocra” or mustard as I like to call it since its more in a grey scale than the more traditional yellow that is made in a green cast.
This color does very well in form of heavy materials, such as wool and thick yarn knits in coats and winter sweaters, however I love a saturated mustard trouser with a front pleat or a side line. Combine this color with other saturated darker contrasting hues or a light nude/beige for the ultimate fall 14′ look.10646966_857825334250176_8389711719039519186_n01-moscow-fashion-week-street-style_001937b670cff96a7871998175130a417d42572ee52110c1d06505d861b5d7b35be_MON0226_MON0256_MON028324b57dd88edf9f04274da20c0c63033bc13f9d1349623f38b060eb9e22d9dad6milan-fashion-week-spring-summer-2015-street-style-1-1931499d2847d5894b9dbc4453070243b8Street looks from Stockholm, Milan, Russia and Paris.

BEAUTY INDUSTRY MONDAY

Image

Meet Charlotte Tilbury, she is a veteran in the make up and beauty industry and an incredible creative artist who has worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion  industry today.
Charlotte who has been working as a beauty expert for over 20 years got her inspiration from her artistic parents growing up in London and Ibiza where she found herself surrounded by creative and free spirits on a daily basis. She was always very fond of women and what made them so beautiful, and she was already at a very young age determined to find their “secret weapon”. At 13, she discovered the mascara which was the beginning of her journey to beauty school “Glauca Rossi School of Make-Up” where she met fellow make up artist Mary Greenwell who introduced her to the world of shoots, campaigns and fashion shows.
Today Charlotte has developed her own make up and skincare line under her own name which you can find at www.Net-a-porter.com and her website www.charlottetilbury.com

CURRENT TRENDS – RUNWAY TO STREET: THE PANTONE COLORS

Image

Every season, colour systems powerhouse Pantone release a colour report for the fashion industry. It contains 2 sets of 10 colours, one for women and one for men inspired by everything from books, artisan crafts, photography and retro architecture, to exotic landscapes and the children of rock legends. This season brings out some untypical and somewhat unrealistic colours that are unusual for fall and open up a lot of room for playfulness and artistic expression. We see it represented quite clearly in many of the fun ways designers have put hand painted fabrics and powerful mixes of colour in their shows. This week we’ve chosen to wrap our reader favourite post “Runway to Street” around these colours to give you some expanded insight to how you can mix and match some hot new colours with the most classic of your fall accessories.

First, some colours from this years Pantone map (Black not included).

Then 3 outfits that express what different designers, all at the cutting edge of fashion have chosen to do with these colours. Balenciaga brings a strong, city chic colour combo of Vibrant Orange, Royal Blue and deeper take on Cadmium Green. Peter Pilotto puts forward his skilful patterns in Purple Orchid, Molten Lava and classic black while Alice + Olivia take the fairytale route with patterns in another version of Cadmium Green,  Saphire Blue and Misty Yellow (not represented here).

In the last picture we’ve given you 3 ways of using these combinations in every day life, such as to the office or a friday night out. It show’s its not hard to dare some colour and how coats and jackets in colours other than black can be a major investment hit for this season. It also shows a brilliant way of bringing new life to black knits and boots with something as simple as a pair of pink pants or a yellow tank top.

BEAUTY TRENDS SS15 “FRESH ROSE”

Image

One of the most favoured and sought after beauty looks is the ever so lovely “au natural” look.
I have seen a very vast amount of fresh faced looks of the runways this season, and we are looking at a very bare look for spring/summer 2015.
Luckily, there are ways to copy these looks without putting yourself through life changing obstacles and hours at the dermatologist. A very spoken about product is the Sisley “black rose” mask and anti aging serum that is supposed to work wonders within only a few days use! Also, using their intensive day cream with botanical extracts you will start to see a very rosy and “fresh faced” look within days.

Another more affordable way to achieve this look is to try a simple rose water spray from the brand “Heritage Store”. Their rose product contains Vor-Mag water that has been vortexed and magnetized to raise the energy to a higher vibration that is more beneficial.stay-healthy-immunity-boosting-tips_06DSC_0351Chloe’ SS15002__MIC4640 021__MIC4822 027__MIC4728Balmain SS15.karlie-kloss028__MIC2969023__MIC2847006__MIC2752Alexander Wang SS15beauty-look-at-alexander-wang-spring-2015makeup-look-at-alexander-wang-ss15sheer-nails-at-alexander-wang-ss15wet-looking-ponytails-by-Redken-at-Alexander-Wang-ss15

I personally recommend to wash up with an organic option for an ultimate result.
