Effortless Luxe By: Paulina Villa


     Donna Karan shows an elegant wearable collection for this upcoming spring 2010. The collection flares with the power of the elements- earth, air, water and fire. The color palette sticks mostly to nudes, grays, whites and other neutral tones, adding unexpected splashes of red.
     The garments portray an airy, refreshed style that can be worn on a everyday basis. Pieces such as draped dresses, sheer and chiffon pencil skirts, one shoulder tunics, nude straps, two piece classic suits, and ruffle hats are perfectly fitted to an urban contemporary atmosphere.
     The spring for 2010 will bring a soft-edged combination of pieces with unique feminine touches. The high waist ribbon in pastel tones and Karan’s signature draped jersey in neutral tones bring both femininity and sophistication to the look. The ruffled hats and flowing cut of her pieces complete the coquette look for the season. (photos by: Marcio Madeira for

Sheer Exposure By: Paulina Villa

     This 2010 summer, Lagerfeld indulges you with a delicate, light, yet chic collection. Hemlines stay short. Ruffles and bubble skirts replace clinging styles. The palette of colors chosen is light with exceptions made, like the bold orange notably seen in the mini dress.
     Short sheer ruffled skirts are paired with chiffon peasant and round-neck tops sometimes letting the undergarments been exposed. However, the contrast between sheer and opaque tones keeps the look feminine. Ruffles are constantly teasing the collection with an air of subtle seduction.
     The structured cropped jacket instantly makes a statement without being too aggressive. Cropped becomes more modest. Peek-a-boo wrapped and knotted stilettos mastered the scene bringing the perfect dose of fieriness into a delicate ambiance. The colors stay neutral.
     The handbag collection continues to exhibit the big popular models with leather and exotic prints. Fendi’s signature baguette bag is also shown in a smaller version with wooden-handle models. (photos by: Marcio Madeira for

1st & 10 By: Diane Paik

     Alexander Wang’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection was inspired by a classic American sport: football. Wang’s sporty twist in his collection consisted of everything from pairing together a corset and sweatshirt, to his own sexy version of “tighty whities” and leopard print peep-toes. An infusion of browns, blacks, and heather grays created the basic look for Wang’s grunge-tastic style.
      The show started off with a more casual look but soon evolved to all black outfits consisting of mesh and frilly cropped jackets. The runway transformed from being a regular walkway, to an entrance way for the most fabulous football players around. Donning pigskin in ways it has not been used before (at least in football), the headbands down to the laced up shorts took football fashion to a different league.
     Inspired by shoulder pads in football uniforms, transparent sleeves emerged from a cropped black sweater and high-waisted track pants finished off the look. Sweatshirts and tighty whities have never looked better. (photos by: Marcio Madeira for

Flower Power By: Diane Paik

     In true Erdem fashion, Erdem Moralioglu’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection was filled with brilliant colors and ravishing flower patterns. Honing his skills in delicate lace and romantic accents, there wasn’t a single piece in the collection where Erdem’s ingenuity was not beautifully displayed. For 2010, Erdem was inspired by Japanese influences of women from the 20’s who refused to wear kimonos but instead followed Western fashion. With the combination of colors to the intricate work in each flower pedal, his vision was clear. Erdem was sure to incorporate his beloved floral along with gossamer lace detailing and 3-D petals emerging from the fabric. Form-fitting dresses filled the runway alongside high-waisted skirts and garden party inspired styles. Who knew so much could be done with flowers? (photos by: Marcio Madeira for
