Amongst the maddening sartorial rush of global fashion weeks, I present to you my ultimate Matches Fashion edit. With a carefully curated selection of recent designer collections from one of my favourite fashion websites, these beautiful items encapsulate both the signature and distinct pieces in accordance to their brands. It’s apparent to me that one’s style is forever evolving, inspired continually by numerous collections every season. Most of all, I follow my ultimate fashion mantra, “If I like it, I wear it”.

Spin some records and listen to my new Spotify playlist for some creative inspiration.

Bisous!

Classic, tailored, and reminiscent of European tradition, I was immediately captivated by Ulyana Sergeenko’s beautiful haute couture collection in Spring 2015 Couture week. Presented in Paris last week, these fashion masterpieces by the Russian designer exuded le chic, nostalgia and timelessness.

With a vintage aesthetic, this collection features a strong sense of place and cultural affiliation with intricate embellishments, lace, velvet and silk materials, referring to Sergeenko’s Russian heritage. Scalloped edges, capes and various neckline designs are highlights. I absolutely adore the accompanying accessories including the bold boater top hats, simple velvet heels and ballet flats with gold decorations, cute fur tote bags and round embroidered purses.

Pointers from the show include incorporating a variety of traditional colours into your outfits, as well as tailored suits or matching sets, full-circle skirts, long dresses with cut-outs, subtle print details or embellishments, in addition to structured hats and trousers. You can even dress-up with a layering of flared pants and statement tops to achieve a tailored peplum, suit-like look.

Every aspect of this couture range is difficult to fault, especially due to the high level of craftsmanship expected of designer couture. I am thoroughly impressed by all of Sergeenko’s stunning designs that evoke the mediterranean glamour. I wish I was able to attend the amazing spectacle and witness up-close these stylish forms of Art.

Bisous
