We chose one favorite look from (almost) every designer showing the Resort 2015 season, featured on vogue.com, and tried to incorporate as many brands as possible, choosing one look only.
Why? Sometimes it’s good to test yourself. We think it’s important to see what happens when you approach things differently than you’re used to. So we zoomed in on the runway Looks instead of the complete collections, like we normally do. Funny thing is; this way we come up with only “usual-suspect” trends: boring! We did look at designers we have never seen before, that’s less boring but also very time consuming, and we all know time=money 😉
Conclusion: We will never again let go of our experience and knowledge about fashion trends, brands and designers. The way we spot our trends is the right way and the fun way!
The Resort 2016 shows for women came before the men’s pret-a-porter Spring 2016 fashion shows. What these “seasons” have in common is the (Chinese) Silk Satin BomberJacket. For men it is Louis Vuitton who really embraced this jacket the most: The Bomber’s were full force shiny, bright colored or in pastels and heavily embroidered. As you can see in the images above, LV was certainly not the only fashion house to show this garment. The jackets for women are more demure, and with a little less frequency seen. Also the fit is more retro eighties: Cropped to the waist. Maybe we’ll see them more and embelleshed at the women’s pret-a-porter shows for Spring 2016? We think so! For sure!
We, at Mimi Berlin, are speechless after seeing the images of the Miu Miu Club show….But we ARE able to utter one word though: W O W
“July 4, 2015, in celebration of the unveiling of the 2016 Croisière (cruise/resort) collection and the introduction of the first house fragrance, Miu Miu opened the Miu Miu Club, a one-night-only intervention in the 1937 Palais d’Iena in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. Inspired by the rich tradition and dark evocation of Parisian nightlife, the Miu Miu Club featured a cocktail gathering, exclusive dinner, fashion show, musical performances, and a late night party. In addition the Club included a special powder room dedicated to experiencing the first Miu Miu fragrance.” (read/see more miumiu.com) Continue reading →
The Resort 2016 Fashion Show by Raf Simons for the House of Christian Dior was held at the Palais Bulles, the home of Pierre Cardin. Both venue and clothing, and certainly the combination of both was extraordinary wonderfulistic! We chose our favorite looks, see all the looks HERE at style.com.
To make it easy on ourselves we copy-pasted the Dior press dossier Continue reading →
Yes! the fashion people got invited again to watch a resort season fashion show at a breathtaking location: Palais Bulles in Théoule-sur-Mer, France.
This huge house, at the Cote D’azur, is designed by architect Antti Lovag, commissioned in 1975 by the industrialist Pierre Bernard.
The present house owner is fashion designer Pierre Cardin.
The huge Barbapapa-like Palais Bulles was used as venue for the Dior Resort 2016 fashion show (on the 11th of May 2015). We posted earlier on the house of Bob Hope in palm springs which was used for the Louis Vuitton resort 2016 fashion collection, an equally dream-like location. But maybe we like the house of Pierre Cardin more because it’s pink and friendly. Uhmppff; We will refrain from further architectural comments.
Ausschnitt über den “Palais Bulles” des ungarischen Architekten und Habitologen Antti Lovag aus der Sendung “Häuser auf den Kopf gestellt” aus der ZDF-Dokumentationsreihe “Menschenskinder” von Wolfgang M. Ebert aus dem Jahre 1981.
The images above are made by Juergen Teller, on the premises of the Resort 2016 Fashion Show, of Louis Vuitton in Palm Springs. This show was held at “The Volcano Home” which was built by Josef Lautner, commissioned by Bob and Dolores Hope.
Ok, enough about the venue. The clothes were stunning, in our opinion. We had to think of Mad Max, but in Glamour-land. Post Apocalyptic everyday wear. Nothing torn or ripped but sturdy and almost protective, with romantic touches from the sixties and from the 19th century USA settlers. Well, that’s a mouthful…, as always it’s better to see for yourself. Check it out with our story in mind, and see if you like the collection as much as we do.
