To be or not to be: mixing prints…

Of course TO BE and course to mix!!! Mixing prints is like solving the puzzle and it is super rewarding to see the complete picture. I must admit that it can be tricky to play with prints and patterns, but after being inspired by countless street style blogs and fashion magazines, I set up some rules which really help me.

Girl of the month. Blair Eadie

Blair is one of my biggest fashion inspirations ever. Every time so different, but always true to her style, Blair manages to create posh but somehow laid-back looks all the time. She is my queen of prints and accessories! I stopped reading a lot of fashion blogs as with the time they became too hmmm… fancy and less inspirational. I don’t want to see endless high fashion brands, I need something I can use in an everyday life!!! Blair on the other hand seems to have an everlasting source of great ideas. Thumbs up!

How different was Dior in the times of John Galliano. It was pure art!!!! Galliano is truly an extraordinary person and his every collection was like a performance with a story behind it. Even after the anti-Semitic scandal I still love John as designer. He and Alexander McQueen are my true fashion geniuses.

And with the Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Week (especially after what Raf Simons created for Dior this time) the first thing I realised is that now the House of Dior is definitely less dramatic and theatrical and it seems that Raf is not creating anything new but interpreting old Dior’s collections. Much more I enjoyed Bill Gaytten’s work for Dior. But honestly, oh God, I miss Galliano’s creativity!!!

And….10 years ago in mid January Galliano presented his Haute Couture S/S 2004 collection for Dior. Truly breathtaking collection inspired by ancient Egyptian culture. There are a lot of corsets, golden colour, crazy make-up! This is what I want to see in Haute Couture collections: crazy/dramatic/jaw-dropping/uuuunforgettable!!!  Love love love!!!
