THANK YOU ZARA!… Bottega Veneta FW 2014||15 and Zara FW 2014||15

If you have fallen in love with Bottega Veneta's beautiful geometric-optical pattern [left] featured in my last post, there are good news for you. The fast fashion label Zara was kind enough to re-propose the exact same motif on a dress of the current collection [right], available right now in the stores for 49,95 Euro. Thank you Zara!

The iconic resort elegance mood of this picture, created by photographer Eugene Vernier for British Vogue in 1966, where Jean Shrimpton and an unknown model are wearing designs by Christiane Bailly [left]... might have been an inspiration to Karl Lagerfeld and his team while working on the Fendi collection for SS||2014 [right].

INTO THE SAME IDEA… Veronique Branquinho and Calvin Klein FW 2014||15

Knitwear ensembles are really a thing in the upcoming winter fashion season, embracing strongly the idea of warmth and comfort. A knitwear trend that has appeared on the catwalks for FW 2014||15 is the striped intarsia top-skirt combo. Veronique Branquinho got inspired by Scotland and its rich heritage of Fair Isle patterns [left], while Calvin Klein's super crafty Fair Isle knit turtleneck outfit looked like they came straight off a loom [right]. It can't get any cozier I guess.
