The Italian influence is definitely being played up in French fashion this Spring. And Salvatore Ferragamo's Spring 2012 is colorful! I guess the key is playing up the color with some confidence by finding your favorite colors. I like the prints. However, I think a little goes along way.
Carven is a funky fresh Paris fashion house that totally inspires me with their off-the-shoulder looks. I'm loving the last few seasons - with the off-the-shoulder style. I haven't found the right dress yet...it just adds a certain je ne sais quois - casual but very confident.
So I love my jeans! I don't know what I'd do without that fashion invention. I love to dress them up. I love to just put on a t-shirt and hang out. With the "Dolce Vita" Italian style ramping up the fashion runways and splashing across Paris streets - I decided to check out Italian Fashion House Liu Jo. Their jean collection is just hot! I love the look. I think the key to wearing jeans is your butt. I mean I think that's the trick. No matter where you get the jeans from. If your butt doesn't look good, it all falls apart from there. Spring is upon us. It's time to get some new jeans, peeps!
Even Gap was inspired with the Italian denim look of Liu Jo.
The look taking Paris by storm this season is a decidely very Italian one. Think Sophia Loren and you'll get it. Very femme fatale. When you've got it...you've got it. Dresses, heels, perfect accessories. C'est tout.
I love beautifully tailored dresses. I think it's all in a cut whether it's off-the-shoulder or assymetrical skirts. I think it just makes for interesting clothes and Stephane Rolland's latest collection is right up my alley. I'm also really exploring adding bold colors to my wardrobe minus the prints. Add a beautiful necklace. And it's just beauty in the simplicity. Very graphic designy and elegant.
Cool little bio below on Sessun's founder, Emma Francois. I love the bold and beautiful colors and graphic design. The label got started catering to artists at music festivals. Sessun is based in Marseilles.
Here's to sunny days!
It all started with a trip to Latin America. Emma Francois was 22 and studying economic anthropology when she first visited South America and fell passionately in love with its stunning culture and craftsmanship. The right materials and expertise were to follow. When she came back to Paris, she found herself designing small items in crochet and pure wool, made entirely by craftspeople in the Latin mountains.
The raw materials worked well with the feminine shapes inspired by a familiar urban culture, and the combination was seductive. People loved the idea, and she decided to set her books aside and devote herself full time to the new venture. Sessun was created at the end of 1995. A turning point came in 1998.
