The Magic of Gucci Resort 2018: A Renaissance in Florence

The Gucci Cruise 2018 show took place in Florence, Italy a few months back. Inspired by the Renaissance, Alessandro Michele showed a collection that had a little bit of everything: New logo shirts and jeans for the ladies. A men’s must-have sweater that read Guccy across the front (sure to be spotted on every street style star worth her salt in Instagram followers.) Jogger pants, fanny packs, gold sequin capes. Red carpet-worthy Grecian-inspired gowns, bold palazzo pants, signature stripe cardigans, a logo-stamped fur coat—the list is long. After all, there were more than 100 looks!

“I styled my pants with the matching sweater top for a quintessentially Gucci Girl ensemble”



Elegant Suiting and Dazzling Evening Gowns from Chanel SS’17 Couture

Chanel is arguably one of the most famous French designer lines, a high-end brand that effortlessly combines sophistication and femininity in every sense. Since Karl Lagerfeld took over as lead designer and creative director of the line in 1983, Chanel’s creations have been nothing short of brilliant, including the Spring 2017 Couture line.



My Favorite Avant Garde Moments And Designers

Art is a funny thing — the same painting might be heralded as a chef-d’oeuvre by one critic, and torn apart by another. Avant Garde, the French phrase meaning a group of people at the forefront of new developments, is a type of modern art that takes any traditional rules of what is and isn’t art and throws them out the window. Avant Garde artists move through the art world like they live in the near-future instead of the frozen moment of the present with the rest of us.

“Though a thick line exists between ready-to-wear and the avant-garde, a few designers have opted to leave their clothing with the mark of something a bit more extraordinary.”
