Paul Smith Clothing:Classic and Quirky

He is the British Style icon. Paul Smith personality sums up in 3 words. Nobody can replace the true British spirit of Paul Smith clothing and his unique designs. He has been at the center of the British menswear for almost 3 decades of producing menswear of high quality. Try to consider tailored suits, frizzy shirts, crisscross jackets, cuff links, and well-crafted shoes. It seems these are formal wear but each item have a “quirky” twist having a traditional British graphic print on it.

The true success of Paul Smith’s creations and overall business designs of classic and quirky were attributed to both of his roles as designer and a retailer. Giving men a chance to buy relatively traditional designs that offer a ‘twist’ of individuality and a classic look. These outfits are realatively popular for businessmen and traditionally associated with the upper class and wealthy that oozes class and quality.

Guys, I do recommend that you need to have one of his clothing collections in your wardrobe, no matter what societal level you are in. This is best for a young man who is looking to freshen up his formal or office attire this season.

There are always formal occasions for us to go through throughout our life and having an investment suits from Paul Smith means it will never go out fashion style.

The Rolex

Rolex with its high standards of quality are highly expensive targeting on high end buyers. They take the pride of introducing several concepts in designs and style such as the first wrist watch with automatic date changing, the first certified chronometer, the first dust proofing and water proofing cases and so on. Rolex has evolved as a household name that suits all the watch needs for those in all age groups either looking for funky style or elegance with utility and perfect quality.

Rolex: Exceptional Men and Women

In 1927, a young woman named Mercedes Gleitze swam through the icy waters of the English Channel wearing a Rolex Oyster. It marked the beginning of a long tradition: the linking of Rolex watches with exceptional individuals.

Since then, many of the world’s greatest explorers, sports figures and artists have endorsed Rolex timepieces. These testimonees all share Rolex’s guiding spirit: the constant pursuit of perfection.

“Do It Yourself” – Vivienne Westwood Clothing

Vigorous, exposed undergirdings, bundled fabrics—the pioneer of funky fashion, Vivienne Westwood standard have been coming fast and furious from all quarters of the season. To note that the geometric flaps that have appeared everywhere from A-Z fashion designer’s list were introduced by Madam Viv. So she’s finally seizing the moment to explore the more fashionable side of arty fashion.

She is a designer who wears a headband with the anti-consumerist message “branded” rolled across it and she is the one who sends out a new muckraking slogan for the T-shirt every season.

Vivienne Westwood Clothing

This season: “We need an estimated $30 billion per year to save the rain forest.” This message inspired the show’s “Do It Yourself” conservation theme. “Everything from Westwood’s familiar asymmetrically wrapped-and-bustled dresses to the capes flung across one shoulder came in frayed fabrics that looked like they could in previous lives have been tablecloths, drapes, or shower curtains”, the bedsheet couture,

Less fabulous loincloth pants exposed the privates of models’ boxer shorts. Women wore headscarves as knickers and there’s not much of a retail future in a clear plastic jacket and ball skirt although it undeniably had a certain undone charm. In its great folly, it was chic and classic Vivienne Westwood clothing in the corner.

Celine 2009 Exotic Elegance Collection

Celine has become such an extremely sophisticated and elegant brand under the artistic production of Ivana Omazic for Spring 2009 collection.

Celine 2009 Collection

This season, the overall classic look of the collection was spiced up with color, exotic fabrics and feminine silhouettes.

I was impressed with the clothing collection as well as I am overwhelmed with the amazing array of handbags. The collection includes huge totes, tiny clutches, medium sized clutches and bags. It seems exotics are the new leather bag that are prevalent and entrenched in the world of fashion.

Celine Spring 2009 Collection

Expensive as they are, but no one can argue the beauty of a snakeskin or crocodile bag. Bright colors seem to love being mixed with these skins to produce an artistic output. This Celine handbag collection introduces some of the newest designs that are sure hot as hell this season.

Celine Spring 2009 handbag Collections

I’ve chose Celine, a French fashion house because their accessories for spring summer 2009 are a pith and marrow of the dominant trends.

What strikes me the most is a medium-sized yellow clutch made of snakeskin and paired with a yellow tulle coctail dress.

The spring-summer 2009 Collection of Celine is refined, funny and studied for a classic sportswoman who can’t give up however her femininity.

Galliano Clothing and more…

The designer itself, John Galliano knows everything from his season’s collection to runway shows. He is the legendary man who pioneered the use of dramatic sets and a whirling sensation of colors in his shows. The Spring/Summer 2009 collections has gone back from the designer’s roots that lie in the British Isles.

A wide variety of styles and concepts from different references of his collections were being used, starting with the very first look down the runway. The distinctive headdresses of the British Royal Guard became the nod of everybody during the show. This is a kind of headpiece that composed of separates, from a dainty little cropped peacoat to a knee-length peek-a-boo dress in rouge red.

The collections were not just focusing on the guards but to the Queen Mother as well. Apparently a tribute to the Queen’s love for hats, some models wore curly white wigs with a flamboyant hat topped off and the exaggerated versions of the hats of the Victorian-era British Navy.

The collections are truly the worked of a genius. He never stop discovering something unusual thus maintaining its dramatic and exciting effect. Galliano managed to turn down his creative volume knob yet keep the utter stylishness of it all at an even level.

Galliano Clothing

The Galliano clothing lines were made more interesting with some ruffles and artistic ruching. Of course, the runway collection will not be completed without his usual riot of colors on display. A kaleidoscope of deep vibrant colors are being used that surprisingly stood out against neon-hued solid pieces.

An array of cropped jackets to frilly mini skirts to full cocktail dresses complete the set.

This is the designer’s fourth fantastic show in a row that was effortfully made himself.

John Galliano displayed his creative genius a bit more in the shoes from this collection.

Balenciaga City Multicolor Handbag

Most girls want to look chic and gorgeous all the way. They are good looking but they want to improve their beauty using sexy outfits and accessories. Such accessories like shoes and handbags.

Many girls love to wear handbags and they are collecting huge numbers of different sizes, colors and labels.

Talking of handbags, one of the handbag labels get into my mind when it comes to quality is the Balenciaga handbags. The house has an immense number of quality handbags created especially for you.

Balenciaga Handbags are available in different colors like purple, black, sky blue, apple green and many more. The quality of the bag is extraordinary and I have outwardly voiced my love of the giant hardware of the handbags.

I’m here to bring you the new version of the Balenciaga City Multicolor handbag.

Balenciaga Handbags

The combination of colors seemed kind of muzzy, and the abundance of blue, red, orange trim seem took away from the effect of the latticed leather. Since the bag is multicolor, the careful precision with which the leather is woven becomes much more apparent. At first it looks scattered, but if examined closely, there’s an almost-symmetry to the pattern that indicates just how much care was taken when deciding where the bag would change colors. The bag had been completely symmetrical, interesting to look and really fascinating. Definitely, I love the Balenciaga handbag aesthetically and its aged brass hardware as well, so all of that combined with the intricacy of the multicolor woven detail really makes me wish I had an extra $2305 in my pocket to indulge myself.

The Making of Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2009 Campaign

The designer, Marc Jacobs knew exactly who he wanted to personify the spirit of the Spring/Summer 2009 fashion campaign.

“I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all this sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer and for me, that is Madonna ” says Marc Jacob

Definitely, Madonna was the new face of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer ad campaign. The iconic pop star was first time photographed by her influential fashion photographer, Steven Meisel.

The great relationship between the two is clearly evidence as in a sepia-toned setting redolent of a Paris café in the Forties. We will see the zinc bar, bentwood chairs and air thick with smoke, Madonna transforms into Marc Jacobs’ vision representing the perfect example of a classy Parisian in season’s sexy short skirts, ethnic-inspired sandals and animal-print bangles.

Madonna shows emblematic slouchy bags in Monogram canvas and Monogram-embossed leather. See video below for The Making of Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2009 Campaign
