    The Stripes: An All-Time Classic

    It’s Wednesday morning and I’m having what’s left from my cup of coffee. It’s time for the next Zoom meeting. As we all wait for everyone to tune it, I notice something peculiar. All of us women, including myself, wore a different version of a striped shirt. We did not arrange this beforehand. It’s not so weird at all! Here’s why: To this day the striped top is within the most popular pieces. There are SO many variations of it that they can make your head spin! The first iteration of Breton („from Brittany“) sweaters was designed with tightly knit local wool to protect fishermen from biting winds and water.…

    Next In Fashion & Making The Cut: The Designer Competitions Go Beyond Traditional TV

    12 Style Quotes From Big Names In Fashion

    During these self-isolating times, we can’t help but focus on ourselves more. We cannot go shopping outside, but we can play dress-up at home. This is a wonderful opportunity to develop and even rediscover our personal style. Get rid of what doesn’t suit our personality anymore. Also, pull out items we forgot we had and try to give them some more love. Can I just say – when was the last time when we weren’t constantly reminded to purchase a particular garment or any item in general? Trends have become such a significant part of our days (especially on social media). To be honest, they constantly make you feel out…

    The Trench Coat – Then and Now

    The trench coat was originally developed as a sporting coat for the upper crust. During the First World War, the British War Office accepted the recognizable design by Thomas Burberry to become part of the soldiers’ uniform. Other brands, such as Aquascutum, also have a long-time history in producing trench coats. What Makes It So Recognizable? The classic version of this piece is double-breasted in a khaki color. It’s made from weatherproof gabardine with epaulets, a storm flap on one shoulder and storm pockets. When Did the Trench Become Popular? Soldiers couldn’t stop wearing it even after the war because of its practicality. Although there isn’t anything quite feminine about its…

    3 Colors to Wear This Spring

    Last September’s catwalks were brightly colored – from earthy tones to neons. Which is more than amazing! Diversity is definitely needed so that we can all find something for ourselves and adapt it to our own style. Here is why I have chosen exactly these shades that the designers have demonstrated. One of them you undoubtedly possess already. The other ones, however, might be a new cup of tea for you. But why not try them this spring? Which is the case with Jacquemus – a sheer orange dress over a white suit! Major styling game! Pierpaolo Piccioli, however, is so good at the „go big or go home“ game.…

    What Happens to Chanel After Karl?

    Exactly a year ago we lost Kaiser Karl. His death marked the end of an era and the beginning of a new one… Karl managed to sell dreams to people His enormous talent didn’t consist of coming up with new silhouettes or defining trends. His fashion shows were global fashion events, which materialized dreams and sold them to customers. The majority felt connected to it all and often bounded itself by buying more affordable products (such as fragrances and cosmetics). This strategy made Karl, as well as Chanel, unapproachable. Today these exact dreams and concepts still sell lipsticks, but customers’ approach and attitude towards the brand have altered. They expect to…

    The Perfect Autumn Dress

    If I have to choose one favorite piece of mine for the current season, it would be this midi dress. The earthy tones, the length, the cut… They are just perfect. But bear in mind that these kinds of clothes can look unflattering on you, so you may have to belt them. I styled mine with a leather jacket and black loafers. This is certainly my ideal look for fall, balancing between comfort and chic. I wear it basically everywhere – at university, at the theater, on walks. We choose the park “Vrana” as a photoshoot location. I thought it perfectly reflects the nature of the dress. The day we…

    VOGUE: 6 Top Covers from the Fashion Bible

    As a big fan (even a collector) of Vogue magazine, I have always found it interesting how such a thing is created. Most of you have probably watched “The Devil Wears Prada”. Well, this is the movie that motivated me years ago to start my career as a fashion journalist. It turned out that creating a magazine is a form of art. Here is why: The new editor-in-chief of the British Vogue creates such great covers that I keep asking myself if he’s going to replace Anna Wintour one day… Edward Eninnful is the 11th top editor of Vogue in the magazine’s 102 years history. However, he is the first man to run…
