High Fash Friday: All Black SS16 Inspo

I hope every single one of you is having a really good Good Friday!

I’ve made a new feature: High Fash Friday which showcases some inspo for the season to come. Every week, a trend or a colour will be posted to inspire your SS16 wardrobe.

To start, here’s a collection of images that call forward my darker side – all black everyyythingggg.

SS16 Inspo- Black

Olivier Rousteing is the designer that never fails to impress. Who could have thought Balmain‘s Creative Director could improve upon his last campaign featuring famous sisters such as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid and Joan and Erika Smalls?!

The SS16 Ad Campaign features gorgeous top models from the golden era; Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell, all shot by the talented Steven Klein. 

The use of black and white with heavy highlights and shadows presents the reoccurring theme of boldness that Balmain produces as an aesthetic. 

I am as ever in awe of the work at Balmain. What do you think?

PFW Faves

Hello everyone. Fashion month has come to an end (cry). But don’t you worry, it’s here for just one more day within this post. This season Paris Fashion Week has been my favourite. From Dior to Valentin Yudashkin I have been stunned by the rich amount of talent there is in the French fashion houses. Here’s the final instalment of Fashion Week Faves…

Sarah Burton carries on McQueen’s legacy. Shades of pink, black and cream dominate the runway with slim silhouettes.

Olivier Rousteing collaborates with a start-studded cast of models. Suede, jewelled skirts, clinch-waist silhouette and neutral colours were major themes of the SS16 RTW collection. This was definitely my favourite show in Paris, possibly in the whole of fashion month. I might be a little biased, but Olivier Rousteing is such a talented designer and business man. Every Balmain collection dazzles me and leaves me eager for the next.

Raf Simons has done it yet again. Feminine tailoring, metallic handbags and sheer two pieces featured on the runway with this season’s common theme of white, black and pink.

I LOVE Iris Van Herpen. The modern craftsmanship and feminine tailoring creates a high level of design that could be mistaken for Haute Couture, rather than Ready To Wear.

A utility theme similar to Versace at Mugler. Think leather and metallics. But for all the anti all black goers, opt for a vibrant jumpsuit.

My aesthetic to a T. Sheer fabrics on bombers and dresses as well as the re-occurring colour scheme of white and pink.

Bye-bye fashion month! I’ve LOVED doing these posts on fashion week. High fashion runway is my favourite type of fashion and you never know… one day I may be able to take my own photos along with an official invited!

Wishing upon a star,

Molicia xo
