On This weeks “Style Spy” we decided to shine our light on one of the hottest models of the moments, Cara Delevingne.
Cara began her modelling career at the very tender age of 10 when she first appeared in Vogue Italia modelling for the English chocolate brand Cadbury. Since then she has continued working with almost every premium brand on the European and American market today and she is currently the face of Burberry’s beauty campaign alongside fellow british models Edie Campbell and Jourdan Dunn.

Cara has since her first shoot as a junior model continued on her way to stardom and landed ad campaigns for brands like Blumarine, DKNY, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent, Zara, and Chanel.
She has also built an incredible resume of runway shows she has walked for, and Moschino, Jason Wu, Oscar de la Renta, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Stella McCartney,Dsquared, Lanvin, Givenchy and Chanel are all brands who book her for every season for their SS and FW shows.
In 2012 and 2013 she became a part of the “Victoria Secret Angel” squad and walked the prestigious annual runway show alongside fellow Brazilian super star models Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and Gisele Bundchen.

The next venture Cara is pursuing is her music and singing. She is working with top producer of the 20th century Pharell Williams on her new album and they have recorded a song called “CC the world” which has been used for the short Chanel film “Reincarnation” in which the both star.

We hope to meet Cara during our trip to New York for Fashion Week so stay tuned for more from Re’s Weekly SS updates!

SS15 COLORCAST “STRONG ACCENTS”

Image

Welcome to our last color forecast for this season. We would like to say that we saved the best for last, but I love all of the seasons combinations equally and It just happen to go from light to dark this time.

These colours are more saturated but in a grey cast so they are cold, and therefore will look really great in our spring outerwear and leather goods and accessories. Even the pink has a grey tone to it which makes it more sophisticated and settle than a lot of neon pink you usually see for the spring seasons. Last season Blues were yellow casted and loud, now they have become more toned down and somber for SS15, which is something I have always preferred when styling, mostly because I don’t like too much contrast. Even though this color palette seem very dark for spring it all makes sense when you look at the runway and the couture shows where we get our main inspiration from. I will link back to this color series when I write our accessories report!

Stay tuned! Re.

THE COMEBACK OF GEMMA WARD

Image

I used to look up to a handful of models growing up, and one of the most frequently watched was Gemma Ward. Between 2004 and 2008 she was everywhere. Not one Prada, Valentino, Versace, Wang or Balenciaga show was put on without her opening it! And now, she is back in the game after taking a well-deserved break spending time with her boyfriend and having a baby back in her home land of Australia.
The first reason for Gemma’s break from modelling (which was the topic of conversation in every fashion blog) was to focus more on acting, which later lead to a break from the industry all together after the tragic death of her ex boyfriend Heath Ledger.
However, Gemma has recharged and is making a spectacular comeback by opening the Prada SS15 show during Milan FW and she is already gracing the December issue of Vogue Australia.
We are absolutely thrilled to see her back on the runway and we know that we will see so much more of her in the new year.
Go Gemma!

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).

RUNWAY

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.
