Dean Quinn

Today we talk about Dean Quinn, a 25 years old designer who won the award as women's-wear designer of the year in 2009. He is Irish but has lived in Milan, where he worked for Donatella Versace, and then moved to New York. He had already worked in the city, during his studies, and decided that was the best place to establish his own line. 
Here are some pics of his Spring Summer 2012 collection.

Se' by Icho

Se' by Icho is the brand of Icho Nobutsugu a Japanese designer who lives in Milan. Yes, we love Japan and today we decided to talk about him. He has worked with many famous fashion brands and recently has created his own brand. All his creations are handmade and fit for women and men but details are male. Every single piece is unique. Icho's favorite materials are silk and hemp for spring-summer and cashmere for fall-winter. The "knitting mania" has become an hobby not only for ladies!

Limi Feu

Limi Feu is a Japanese fashion designer who made her Paris Fashion Week debut in October 2007. She is the daughter of the designer Yohji Yamamoto. It's difficult to define her style but in our opinion is a mixture of punk and eighties. Here are some pics of the Spring Summer 2012 Fashion Show. 
Enjoy it.

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2012 Fashion Show

The show begun with a carousel of white horses that starts to turn and drops off the models. The collection's theme was macramé - that is confirmed as a trend - and a little white dress is now on everybody's list for next summer.

One of the models was Kate Moss, a friend of the designer Marc Jacobs. 
The whole collection is played on a very feminine shape, constructed around the use of sangallo veiled by a layer of organza. The colours are daisy, periwinkle, sky blue, candy pink, aquamarine, ivory and light blue. They remind at childhood and candies.

Versace for H&M

Anna Dello Russo was seen wearing one of the Versace for H&M's dresses. We don't like so much this collection and this dress looks like the one of Balmain's Spring Summer 2012 Collection.

Anna Dello Russo ha già indossato uno dei vestiti della collezione di Versace for H&M. Non ci piace molto questa collezione e questo vestito assomiglia molto a uno di quelli della collezione Primavera Estate 2012 di Balmain.

Balmain Spring Summer 2012 Fashion Show

One of the shows that we liked of the Paris' Fashion Week is the one of Balmain. The brand has a new artistic director, the twenty-five years old Olivier Rousteing. In his collection we noticed the Las Vegas and Mexico's influence, but also some inspiration from the old Versace.
In your opinion, is Olivier Rousteing a worthy successor to Christophe Decarnin?

Uno degli show che ci è piaciuto di più della Fashion Week parigina è quello di Balmain. Il brand ha un nuovo direttore artistico, il venticinquenne Olivier Rousteing. nella sua collezione notiamo l'influenza di Las Vegas e del Messico, ma c'è anche qualche ispirazione al vecchio Versace.
Secondo voi Olvier Rousteing è un degno erede di Christophe Decarnin?
