Jil Sander’s pure confidence

Jil Sander is a house that prides itself on being plain. Yet, for Rodolfo Paglialunga “Jil Sander cannot be reduced to minimalism. It deeply relates to the reality in which we live.” This collection had an edge to it with following the same general rules: monochrome, minimal, pure, precise. “It felt like a chic retort to the vintage-tinged, overtly embellished, almost ditzy direction that so much of Milan has taken this season. It felt confident”. Read more

Prairie chic is the cutest trend of the season

Do you recall the Little House on the Prairie? If so, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s wardrobe is having a moment. If not, well, you will. Prairie chic is a style that straddles both femininity and hardworking practicality. “Ditzy floral prints and lace-up tomboyish boots; high necklines with a delicate ruffle; pretty calico yoke blouses and long hemlines; gingham and plaid prints and homespun patchwork patterns in sun-faded shades. Prairie style has romantic, feminine look appeal teamed with a hardy, free-spirited air – they look better with a smudge of mud or a grass stain” comments Ella Alexander for a trend that is quite lovely. For summer 2016 prairie chic is reinventing itself with a sensual feel to it. Designers, from Erdem and Alexander McQueen to Valentino brought a modern edge to this part nostalgic, part angel look. So be a modern prairie girl with this look that can easily veer into either fancy dress or sickly sweet territories with the appropriate styling. “Alexa Chung wears her prairie dress with PVC boots, which makes for an interesting juxtaposition, while Kate Bosworth demonstrated how the trend can be worn for night when created in delicate tulle” adds Alexander. “It’s high time boho was made to step aside” she adds and we approve. Green wool fedora hat by Maison Michel, ‘Ali’ floral print long dress with V-neck at the back by Erdem. – Available at Luisa World Kolonaki, Luisa World Kifissia.
