Milan Fashion Week Fall 2014 has officially wrapped, and while most designers opted for natural looks both for hair and makeup, there were still plenty of out-of-the-box and inspiring styles. Here’s a peek at the four beauty looks we can’t get out of our heads!
More of a good thing is a great thing, and in this case, that’s color! The best combos are the most drastic contrasts, especially when one hue is classic and simple, while the other shocks the senses out of their winter doldrums – black and hot pink, black and metallic gold, etc. Pastel may be the unofficial tone of spring, but that just makes these surprising double acts all the more exciting.
If you’re going to go the bag-as-art route, always look to Prada. From 2013’s insect-glam collaboration with Damien Hirst to their James Jean-illustrated Fairy bag, Prada is simply the best at effortlessly combining high art, hot fashion, and hypnotic design, with never a hint of kitsch in sight.
I lost my wallet during NYFW (it was stolen at an event out of my mini bag right in front of me!). My ID, all my credit cards, and not to mention the my entire cash supply for Fashion Week: gone. Kelly gave me one of her company credit cards (we share bank accounts!), but how do you fly home without an ID? Luckily, a good Samaritan found my wallet on a sidewalk, with the ID and cards strewn all over the place (cash gone, natch).
It may come as a surprise that Prada’s 2014 Resort collection is supremely traditional. At least, conceptually speaking, that is. Miuccia is evoking the always-appealing notion (especially during the dead of winter) of an exotic tropical getaway with their upbeat Resort bags.
Here’s an homage to the most quintessential bag, the open, structured black tote that we all should have. Boring? Maybe. But useful? Very. I often find myself going for this most basic style, even though I choose to complicate my life by filling every storage space with such a variety of bags that I don’t ever need the black tote.
