    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…

    Embrace your Inner Boss Lady with the Suit Trend

    Suits on women look totally normal. Although it wasn’t always this way. Back in 1914 Coco Chanel created the first female suit. However, it was in the 1930s and in the 1940s, during the Second World War, when many women started wearing the then-typical men’s attire. They went to work to fill their jobs at home as men were away fighting. Some ladies worked on farms or as munitions workers, helping to build weapons in factories. Others joined the military. As feminine touches like ruffles, embroidery, lace, and other embellishments were banned, women were forced to make use of the unseen-so-far comfort of the suits. They even started wearing them in their…

    Chanel’s Paris-Hamburg collection

    MOSCOW, Russia – We have seen this collection before in December but this time the location is different.  The inspiration behind this fashion show is the River Elbe in Hamburg, Germany. So navy blue is nearly everywhere – having a few models dressed up in head-to-toe marine colors. Wool (with thigh-high leg warmers for her, sailor pants for him), baker boy hats, pin stripes. It’s not a Chanel show without tweed – this time in earth tones, woolen trousers (wide-legged, of course), 60s short skirts, turtle necks, layers of long necklaces and jewelled brooches, 50s collars, masculine suits on women and gorgeous eveningwear. So retro and so modern – I cannot get…
