Rag & Bone SS17 Menswear

The Rag & Bone SS17 show is a lesson in layering where anorak jackets are paired with tuxedo jackets. Smart doses of bold color are also important. The collection is sporty with a touch of dressy and those baseball caps are everything. I loved them at SS17 Balenciaga show and I love them at Rag & Bone.

A bold and blue futuristic coat. The color is so alive. 











A close-fitting shirt layered under a pajama-striped shirt. Just look at that boxy silhouette. Sick!







The tangerine anorak (that looks like a hoodie) layered under army green top coat









The stand collar on this jacket is the money maker.







The collection's bowling elements appear in this look: the bowling shoes and the bag. The pop of the white drawstring of gives me chills.












The thin lines resemble laser beams. Futuristic!










The collegiate sweater is sexy without an undershirt 


Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 show: Chic meets the street:

Karl Lagerfeld showed his Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 collection at the Ritz Hotel in Paris on December 5, 2016. This M├ętiers d'Art collection is a chic and street mix that is a refreshing way for women to dress. The continent of Asia is a big influence from the dominance of gold to the long Nehru-style jackets. Lagerfeld once again finds new ways to present the classic Chanel look. The crucial looks from the show are below.

Puffer coats & evening gowns mix street & evening.


The Chanel suit goes body-conscious. Peep the choker.

A clutch that resembles a jewelry box.

Ash Stymest returns to the runway in a gold car coat full of sequins, fur & sparkles.

The jumper dress &  bishop sleeves = a romantic boss look.

The dress & choker give me Britney vibes. 

The Chanel cardigan got longer and more casual. 
I'm loving the mix of a street wear scarf and an evening dress.

Lagerfeld shows that the bomber jacket is a cousin to the classic Chanel jacket.

This reminds me of the coat dresses Lagerfeld put in the Fendi FW16 Couture show. 


The puffer Chanel jacket. Notice the Eiffel tower embroidered detail.
