We already analyzed the fall 2014 trends regarding headgear, coats and sweaters. What else usually makes an impression on the runway? For sure the most integral component of most collections – The dresses! Just take Bottega Veneta with an entire fall collection based on dresses. Despite of this runway situation I feel that most people in the streets no matter whether its fashion week street style or just everyday city life rarely buy dresses. Here everything seems to be about separates and pants! That said I want to keep the dress trend section quite short, because I feel that there is only one major trend called 60ies revival!
Besides its canals and pigeons for me Venice is primarly a city with an incredible contemporary art scene. Miuccia Prada’s Fondazione Prada is housed in a waterside Palazzo facing the Grand Canal. Kering founder François Pinault (Kering, former PPR (Pinault-Printemps-Redoute) is the investment group, which owns Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Stella Mc Cartney etc..) hosts changing exhibitions at the two venues Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana. We were happy enough to have the chance to visit the incredible “Irving Penn – Resonance” exhibition at Palazzo Grassi, which was also reported on in French Vogue.
Kate Moss designed a total of 14!!!! collections for Topshop between 2007 and 2010. All inspired by her own wardrobe. So Kate Moss x Topshop is actually old news, as is the concept of a “style icon” high street collaboration, just think of the recent Inès de la Fressange X Uniqlo. Deep inside buyers hope to transform into some kind of Kate Moss when wearing a piece from her collection. Does this concept really work or is the obvious comparison with Kate a too high goal?
