These are my top three favorite designers and I am so excited to see what creative genius they all have come up with for fall 2018. Cushnieeetochs is a for sure crowd pleaser as is Cinq a Sept. The creativity that goes into designing these RTW pieces and the genius that goes into producing these shows is mind-blowing. All I can say is,” O M G ” and “one of each please”.  I have promised myself that I will own at less one  piece from each line by the end of 2018.  Or, and entire outfit from one!

NYFW SS18- Forty Plus Ten highlights

Hello Ladies,

NY Fashion WEEK was beyond amazing ! First let me say,  I have always had my all time favorite designers like Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta, DVF, Vera Wang and  DKYN. But, this NYFW, I have brand new favorites to add to my list. And, once your on my favorite designer list, it’s a LONG time relationship. I’m a true ride or die customer. loyalty, loyalty, loyalty ! 🙂 So, let’s get right into it.  ( this are all of my faves ) But, there were sooo many others I loved… had I included everyone, this would have turned into a blog story as oppose to a blog review, and ain’t nobody got time for that.

Cinq a Sept– I want the entire #ss18 collection, seriously

I am so obsessed with this designer, I had to send them a message right after the show, telling them just how obsessed I was !  Are you seeing the wide pant legs and the white booties ( watch the white bootie as it blows up ! ) It’s like feminine meets masculine…To top it off, the presentation was on the beautiful rooftop of The Beekman Hotel #gorgeous

 

Zimmerman– in love with designer since I first saw their collection last year- the white pant suit and the off the shoulder mini is BEYOND ! This collection is perfect for summer time street wear and vacay.. check out the first row of the group photo 🙂  ps.. fanny bags are back !

Zimmer-SS18

Ulla Johnson– feminine, romantic and soft.. total garden vibes

And last, but not least Tom Ford ! I’ve always been a fan, but THIS collection has me totally re-invested…Pink, Mauve + Gigi Hadid and Joan Smalls.

Tom-ford-ss18

FW is like fashion holidays for me.. all the new designs, the up and coming talent, the trends..  I can literally attend and watch fashion shows and presentations ALL day every day.

We also saw some creative genius out in these streets.. Alexander Wang did his fashion show on the streets of Brooklyn, literally. Teyana Taylor perform at the Philipp Plien show and ended up getting hire to walk two shows GCDS and The Blonds…This girl who rose to fame after starring in Kanye West’s FAME video last year with that KILLER bod of her’s.

Spring Summer 2018 will showcase, strong shoulders, bold colors, statement earrings and shoes.. lot’s of pastels too !

So, there you have it my FAVES for #NYFW SS18. Next up London babe !

xoxo, Andrinique

Chrissy Teigen for A.L.C. on duty & Intermix

Hello Ladies,

So, a new celebrity and fashion brand collaboration has been born ! Chrissy Teigen and Andrea Lieberman founder of A.L.C_ltd. The collaboration will be sold exclusively at Intermix , and this should be a fantastic one.  I say this because, I find a lot of celebrity and brand collaborations to be more forced business ventures, something  to drive sales and create buzz.. Either the celebrity needs buzz / pr for their career or the brand does. In this case, I have to say, the collab between Chrissy TeigenA.L.C_ltd and Intermix  seems pretty organic and legit.

 

The collection represents the way the modern woman wants to dress says Andrea Lieberman, founder and Creative Director of A.L.C_ltd  x On DUTY collection. She goes on to say ” In the spirit of always wanting to look and feel our best, we went on a mission to design clothing that was casual, fit seamlessly into our wardrobes and answered all of the needs of our busy lives”.  At the launch party last night at in LA, it was clear that there is a strong friendship between Chrissy and Andrea. I believe that is a key ingredient to any successful collaboration.

One thing that Chrissy hit on in this video was how the line is so interchangeable from east coast to west coast. I find that very insightful, because there is a definite difference in fashion style between NYC and LA. I am born and braised in NYC and have live in LA back and forth for 15 years. I to have found myself struggling with this very thing Chrissy mentions. And so, I end up having two wardrobes East and West coasts. The struggle may be over, because I thing I’ve found the solution in A.L.C_ltd and the ON DUTY collection.  Here are a few pieces for the line that I love!

 

My FAVORITE

What ar your favorite pieces?

until next time, Andrinique

Top Faves from Paris Fashion Week- 17/18

Hey Ladies,

Let me start by saying, for my 4th of July, I was glued to social media ! Why? Because it was Paris Fashion week, and if you don’t know, PARIS is my all time FAVORITE city !  For every reason, the history, the beauty of the city & the country side, the food, the wine .. I can go on and on ! But most especially, the FASHION.

Let’s begin with the Chanel  show which was hosted at the historic Grand Palais located at the Champs-Élysées in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. BEAUTIFUL !!!!

this is my fave shot #chanelgirls

Next up is  Dior who were celebrating Dior’s 70th anniversary #mariagraziachiuri.

 

 

 

And last but not least, Ralph & Russo .. their line has been a fave of mine for the last few years.. they always NAIL it ! OH, and the finale gown is the most breathtaking wedding gown I have ever seen, ever ! 

So, there you have it, my Paris Fashion Week Faves. But, in all honesty, I love the entire week and most all the collections. Jean Paul Gaultier   Elie Saab  ready- to- wear designers like Proenza Schouler and Rodarte to name a few.
