Yde Copenhagen

YDE of Copenhagen is making news at Paris Fashion Week for being one of the design brands that has shown its collection at the ultra luxe Paris “no address” hotel where Kim Kardashian was robbed.  But the line which was launched in 2007 and is designed by Ole Yde from Copenhagen has a lot more for people to be aware of.

In the last three years, while showing their collections at Paris Fashion Week, they have emerged as one of Denmark’s rising stars on the international scene.  With write ups in Vogue, and a couture essence, the industry has taken note.

The ss2017 collection is really artful.

“Love is Paradise” is the theme for YDE’s SS17 collection. Designer Ole Yde took his inspiration from the simple things that make him happy in life such as flowers, rainbows and waves. There is movement and color in most of the pieces. Ruffles, glitter and fun floral prints help to give the collection a whimsical and youthful edge. It’s designed for women who like feminine and refined clothes but who also like to have fun with what they wear. For SS17 Ole Yde creates his own little garden of Eden.

Spotlight On New Model Dilia Martins

Coming out of Amsterdam straight to the international catwalks. One new face really caught our attention during the fashion weeks. With an exotic cross cultural look of curly sandy colored hair, blue/green eyes and freckled skin, Dilia Martins is the latest export to make waves from the Netherlands.

Discovered in her home town on the street, while out shopping, this 19-year-old’s editorial and advertising presence became noteworthy when Miuccia Prada booked her as an exclusive for the Miu Miu autumn/winter 2016 show and gave her a starring role in the 2016 campaign, shot by Alasdair McLellan.

Now she’s walked in the Tory Burch, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Max Mara, Tommy Hilfiger and Philipp Plein fashion shows during this fashion week season.

Milan Fashion Week Highlights

Milan Fashion Week had some surprises. The Italian designers usually represent the epitome of chic. This year there was  plenty of  unorthodox points of view to go around.

Alberta Ferretti Spring 2017 collection was gorgeous. The aesthetic was undeniably chic, feminine and beautifully wearable.

Ferretti mixed edginess with delicate lace. There was a Spanish theme to the dresses, that were cinched at the waist with stiff leather belts with oversized buckles. Leather bandeau crop tops were teamed with sheer layered skirts. Bella Hadid walked the show.

Acting as the luxury brand’s creative director for his third season, Michele delivered chiffon gowns, animal-print jackets and leisure suits.“50 Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson made an appearance.

In his third outing for Roberto Cavalli since being made creative director last year, Peter Dundas showed a patchwork of influences that included Navajo-inspired beaded dresses and kaftans, long, lean Seventies trouser suits with deep flares and patchwork details, and tiered Boho maxiskirts. The looks were worn with low-slung Western concho belts and trailing skinny scarves. The look was a Coachella meets Marrakesh hybrid. It was perfect for the modern hippie.

The Philipp Plein fashion show was staged with as amusement park theme for the tacky chic woman. Muscle bulging “groundsmen” were posed around the women. The guys were the “groundsmen” of this fairytale land.  They were tasked to perform chores like soaping their pectoral muscles, or snipping plastic topiary, while simultaneously admiring the models.There was fairytale cottages and a flying chair carousel. The look was ghetto fabulous and the models walked around the room’s perimeter while a live DJ played.

Donatella Versace embraced an athletic streak at the Versace show. She still maintained the signature sex appeal that defines her brand though.

The Versace vision of sportswear was sleek, ultra wearable and could reality translate from day to night. Functional materials such as ultra-lightweight nylon, transparent bonded waterproofs and drawstring pulls were elevated to couture status. Sweatshirts and tank tops came with intricate and raw-edged lace trim whilst Versace crystal chain mail was embroidered across wrap dresses that shimmered like sun-kissed water.

The Versace show boasting a star-studded model cast including the Hadid sisters and Naomi Campbell.
