The fashion world is on a slow simmer for the time being. With the fashion shows for autumn/winter 2019 all under wraps, we’re left with what we call the after-effects of it. We are now waiting for spring/summer 2019 items to fully drop so everyone can literally start adding them to their carts, including ours.
Coachella music festival is happening this weekend and our eyes are ready for the year’s best outfits — especially from Coachella queen, Vanessa Hudgens, which we may take as inspirations for the upcoming Good Vibes Festival happening in July or even for the grand opening of Marquee Singapore.
Before we start on that, here are this week’s edition of Fashion Obsessions.
Versace Jungle Print shoes
Do you remember that iconic Jungle Print dress that Jennifer Lopez wore in 2000? It’s back — in a form of a shoe. It’s a limited edition Chain Reaction sneakers style that Versace often showcases. The links of the sole are designed to represent that the present is forever linked to the past and the shoes also feature braille lettering for “Love” on the front. Only 1,500 pairs of them will be available starting May 2019. You can still be Jenny from the block by slipping into one of these shoes.
Dior X Hajime Sorayama
This one is for the gents. The metallic dinosaur-robot you see is created by Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama for pre-fall 2019. It’s only available for selected small leather goods which include pouches and wallets. Kim Jones also contributed to the design, by adding cherry blossom motifs as a nod to Christian Dior’s passion for flowers and his love for Japan.
Braun Büffel Exclusive-to-China Fall/Winter 2019 Men’s RTW Collection
“Interactivity” is the title for this exclusive collection. It’s a celebration of not only a new and bold direction but also the unity between codes of utilitarianism and technical finesse. It is a contrasting hybrid between an urban design aesthetic married with sartorial tailored style. More than 60 looks were showcased, with a team of both male and female models.
Bonia Amalfi Collection
Inspired by what we think are the two main things in life — food and fashion, Bonia used both of these two words and the Italian culture as the main theme for this collection. Nautical marine stripe has always been a symbol of spring, hence you see them on this EAT Collection. The collection also features webbing embroidery and printed monogram, which are some of Bonia’s signature styles.
