Wrap Up: David Jones AW15

Sydneys high heeled and fashionably fierce descended on Level 7 of David Jones Sydney flagship last Wednesday for the launch of the retailer’s Autumn Winter 2015 Collection. The venue was transformed into a gritty Surry Hills meets New York underground space, complete with paved floor, bill posters and hipster marching drummers.

Jessica Gomes opened the 40 minute, 35 designers show with an all white Carla Zampatti that confirmed suspicions as to whether the 70s are coming back. Gomes wore a long white feather coat teamed with wide-legged pants and a white chiffon top that was luxurious. Her entrance was followed by Lover, Camilla, Zimmerman Bec + Bridge, Bassike, Camilla + Marc and others.

The message was clear this show: white is back this winter.

The show then moved into bold accessories by Mimco, and incredible embellished animal prints by Camilla, next was Jodi Meare’s sportswear label, The Upside which presented on trend polka dot bralets and leggings, running shorts and cute cropped sweaters.

Rebecca Vallance was one of my favourites with all black and leather looks with her strong giving it a sexy yet edgy style. A black leather dress over leather leggings, and long-line black sleeveless coat . Accessorised with her signature wide-brimmed hat and leather gloves, gave an all black sophisticated, raw and edgy look.

The masculine trend was further confirmed by Bassike, who showed oversized and slouchy fits in light and neutral tones such as whites, ivory and cream. Showcasing drawstring pants, vests and blazers which gave a relaxed, masculine style to Winter trends.

Riffing on the 70’s, Bianca Spender’s collection took a complete 180 turn away from the neutral/monochromatics trend that dominated both the David Jones show and the past few seasons. Daringly she showed Bowie-esque lurex jackets and cropped pants in tones of electric blue, copper and cherry.

Zimmerman was a knock out, with lots of gold, flounce, lace and lurex- a collection not for the minimalists, being a crowd favourite.

Michael Lo Sordo made a dramatic entrance, with a cherry silk maxi dress worn by Montana Cox stole the show. The outfit looked fresh on the short-haired beauty, and the look was quickly making its way around social media.

In honour of the legendary designers 50 years in the business, the show’s finale was dedicated to Carla Zampatti ending with a bang in uptown 70’s luxe ensembles.

Style Crush: Christine Centenara.

title

She is the darling of the Australian fashion world, super Stylist and consultant to Kanye West and Ksubi, and recently Senior Fashion Editor at Vogue Australia (moving over from Harpers Bazaar). She is the uber stylish Christine Centenera.

She has incredible style. One of those people who is just always immaculately put together and always wears her fashion, never lets it wear her.”

Christine´s style may be defined as “too brave” or “too much”, often seen in bold outfits Christine’s look mixes fashion and function: strong shoulder blazers, baroque style, peplum, lace, controversial see-through fabrics and is never intimidated by matching oversized clothes with statement shoes. Or even layering patterned pants, draped shirts and jackets with her signature sunglasses for impeccable street style.

  She likes to keep it simple with basic colors though: black, white, nude and grey.

White Out

PURITY AT A RISK FOR FASHION

The White Out trend that will make you want to be covered in white and give your washing machine a work out.

all-white-summer-trend-13 white-trend-1

The all white everything look is definitely worth the extra workout for the stain remover this winter.

Wearing the white out trend this winter will make you stand out just like the food stains on the clothing which will also match the cold winter condition’s  outside. The white look can be a simple, sophisticated with an edgy take on the trend.

Pairing a  white knitted jumper and a pair of ripped white jeans gives the trend a cosy look.

The trend is the way to go this winter being that coat of white out on a page to cover up in these cold conditions.
