Jeremy Scott Ready-to-Wear AW17/18

On her piece about this very collection, Suzy Menkes of Vogue serves us the much possible explanation behind Jeremy Scott’s thoughts on a plate – if there’s any explanation or any reason for it at all.

So, according to Suzy, Scott’s recent collection was all about the current or future state of the U.S / the world. And by that we mean the state that Donald Trump’s election brought along or the one that the media (social or not) have established.

Cinq à Sept Ready-to-Wear AW17/18

Cinq à Sept Ready-to-Wear AW1718

As Wikipedia explains, Cinq à sept – pronounced “sank-ah-set” – is a “Quebec French term for a social gathering that takes place after work and prior to the dinner hours (roughly between 5 and 7 p.m.). It may bring together friends or colleagues or may be organized around a specific event, such as a book launch or vernissage.” However, the Urban Dictionary (or the sassy street Wiki, as I like to think of it) informs us thatCinq à sept is a French term for a visit to one’s mistress.” I think I like that second meaning a bit more #heheh.

Ready-to-Wear FW16/17; New York, London

It’s been a while since fashion month began and ended but I just recently had the time to sit and actually watch plus observe each show. There were colors and so much diversity whether in lines or textures or styles or just anything. I loved the contrast between the romantic and the darker pieces each house showed and I especially loved how they sometimes relied on both. This season’s Ready-to-Wear designs hardly took me by surprise though. Don’t get me wrong, I did appreciate and love every single show just as much as any other I’ve ever loved. But most of the things I saw I kind of expected. Anyway, here are some short reviews on my favorite runway moments from the FW16/17 season. There is going to be a post on Milan and another on Paris, whereas I combined New York and London in one post. Enjoy and let me know of your thoughts!
