From Prada bejeweled dresses to Louis Vuitton black embellishments, we have seen a lot of chunky beads at spring/summer shows. Marni collection features some heavily embellished sportswear and Christopher Bailey’s collection for Burberry included some incredible pieces studded with chunky jewels. This season’s novelty are big sparkly rocks, even though some designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Marc Jacobs and Jenny Packham decided to stick to more subtle embellishments. Simone Rocha used big white pearls and stitched them to collars, handbags, shoes and even socks, while Dolce & Gabbana covered their dresses in golden coins and yellow jewels.
From Dolce & Gabbana to Burberry, many designers used red for their fall/winter collections. It is certainly one of the hottest colors of the season. Valentino used it along with royal blue and the combination of black and white in his dreamy collection inspired by Flemish artists of the 17th century for elegant romantic dresses, coats, shoes and tiny bags.
There is a lot of red color going on in floral print winter dresses by Givenchy, Roberto Cavalli, Lanvin and Giambattista Valli, while Burberry, Margaret Howell and Christopher Kane decided to go for bold red in their minimalistic design.
Dior red coat with a big bow is definitely a statement piece and one of the ModXchange’s favorites, along with Dolce & Gabbana gorgeous velvet strap shoes with mosaic decorated heels.
As for the beauty trends, red nails are also hot this season, as seen at Valentino, Burberry and Chanel, while burgundy lips are also popular from classic dark red to soft, smudged look.
