Prince: a fashion icon

On June 8, 1958 was born one of the stars of the music: Prince. In addition to being an icon of music, it also became a fashion icon. His style became a benchmark for all his fans and also for those who were not. A style that played with the androgynous and the sexual, making its way of dressing unique and incomparable. No one knew how to wear those clothes like Prince: he understood fashion in a different way. Every look with he appears in any event was a total declaration of intentions, always striking and with extravagant accessories. And just when we thought that the appearance of the disco was gone, Prince was the one in charge to give it a turn so that it became the look of reference of the time.

At its beginnings, around the 70’s, Prince delighted the world of fashion with an explosion of colors and shines that we had never been seen before. One of his must-have were heels and platforms: he measured 160 cm and did anything to look taller than he was. Or so they say since he said:

People say I wear heels because I’m short. Actually I wear them because women like them.

-Prince

One of the looks that has given more to speak is without a doubt the “pirate look”, one of its hallmarks in the 80’s that coincided with the release of his album in 1999. In it, bulky shirts were the protagonists.

Purple color became for him a referent since it symbolizes the ambiguity, the fantasy and the extraordinary thing. He could not have chosen better color to represent one of his best known songs as Purple Rain.
Feathers, volumes, colors, eccentric sunglasses, vibrant costumes that always accompanied a bell trousers, bombers, a thousand and one jewels (when Prince was already tired of wearing the earcuff, the rest began to wear it), the famous animal print, jackets with lyrics and even those oriental airs of thoughts such as Hinduism or Buddhism that made him compare to Jimmy Hendrix.

Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Chris Martin, Beyoncé or Pharrell are just some of the artists who have copied the strongest showman styles of Minesotta without shamelessness. Prince has also inspired designers and has been dressed in more than one occasion by luxury brands as Versace.

 

And as a good lover of fashion we have also been able to see you in the front row of such important parades as John Galliano’s for Dior, along with the presence of Katy Perry and her ex-boyfriend.

In 2002 it is when he started working with big brands. The most famous of them, Adidas, for which he has presented several collections: the first one “!Signed” for which he created a patterned silk trimmed with money and replacing the face of George Washintong for his.

Want to look cool? Here we have the trends for this winter

Fashion Week is about to present collections for the next year and taking this opportunity, we have to remind the best looks that will be wearing for this season.


One of the star items of the season is the sailor coat. Dark blue tones with stripes and gold buttons, a classic winters and not only will be in the shelters: we can also find them in costumes this year, stripes and navy, which will add a touch to your serious and formal look.
Next to him, another type of shelter will be the patent. It does not matter whether a trench coat or a raincoat, patent leather is fashionable. Of course, we don´t want to shelve the famous coats of hair collar for more trifles: do not worry, it is also one of the trends for this winter 2016.
We will make no distinction of colors or formats: padded coats again become both short and long. But if you have an evening event try using a bolero, as the garment that was both fashionable among the 50s and 60s, is back in fashion years later.
Like most spring or fall? Do not worry, because for the fall season dresses with floral prints have even a little darker tones.
After a few seasons with the metallic shades, after enduring success this year still so … bring them out of the closet and wear them!
In addition, we continue with sporty style with hoodies, camel color and velvet.
What are you waiting for?
 

The queen of the 90´s: Donna Karan

“I am not convinced that people have misunderstood me. If you ask someone who is Donna Karan, it is likely to tell you is a designer socks”.

 -Donna Karan

Donna-Karan.jpg
Donna Karan Yvy Faske or rather known as Donna Karan is an American designer known worldwide. He was born on October 2, 1948 and raised in a family dedicated to the world of fashion (her mother was a model and her father, tailor).
As expected, Donna Karan decided to study fashion design at Parsons School of New York. Thanks to this, during her student years began to be the assistant of Anna Klein, which opened the doors to employment.
His daughter, Gaby, was the total inspiration to create her brand, DKNY, which at that time was only accessible for a few and began to be imitated by many other brands.
A total example of enterprising woman who was in charge of renewing those cabinets of American women who were beginning to make their way in the world of men labor.

She has her own line of beauty products, has created collections for men, she has launched her own perfume, has been head designer of Hillary Clinton and is associated with various spiritual theories.
After more than 30 years in charge of DKNY, the fashion designer retired from his own brand to take care of Urban Zen, a new philosophy of life by Donna Karan.
“I want to express my gratitude and my sincere feelings to dozens and dozens of colleagues who over the years have helped me make Donna Karan New York far beyond the best of my dreams”. These were the words of the goodbye of Donna Karan.
We could say that she was the queen of the 90´s. All celebrities (including Barbra Streisand or Kate Moss) wanted to have 7 basic items devised by the designer, who combined between them to perfection.

Who was the first designer of fashion?

Am I crazy to confirm that I´m an artist?

-Paul Poiret

Some people are born with a vocation, and knows it. It was the case of Paul Poiret , who supported by his mother and his three sisters decided to be the tyrant of fashion and release the scene against which the fashion world was.
His father, very much against the commitment of the designer , sent to a friend of him for being  . All he could take advantage were silk fabrics .

For Paul , there wasn´t something that mattered more than the outward appearance. Therefore, he performed the silks that he got from his boss in extravagant confections in a small wooden mannequin .
He started working in one of the most important fashion houses : Worth, but failed to intervene as he would have liked .
Three years later , Poiret was metting with the choicest staff at parties.
Declaring war on the corset (holding that it was a ridiculous clothing) , he created some long skirts which started from the chest down to the ground . He baptized as <<La Vague>> that covered the body like a gentle wave .

In addition , he replaced corset by flexible bras and garters. Its bright colors , the clarity of his prints and the idea of coating the legs of women with flesh-colored silk , awakened the illusion fashion lovers.
He was also the first designer to make his own perfume. Even in 1911 , created the skort that was condemned by father Pío X.

He left his mark wherever he went, chasing the idea of the total work of art. That´s why Poiret is considered the first designer of the fashion world.

"The ugliest collection of Paris"A collection called Liberation from Yves Saint Laurent

From the peplum silhouette to the middle , everything has been done and has done it again a hundred times. And haute couture no longer emits more than homesickness and restraint. As if it were an old lady. I do not care if my clothes evoke the 40´s eyes of the cultivated public. The important thing is that all young girls who didn´t live the time, wanna wear this today.”

The true fashion icon: Anna Wintour

“You can make a film in Hollywood without the backing of Steven Spielberg and remove software in Silicon Valley without Bill Gates. But it is very clear that one can not succeed in the fashion industry without Anna Wintour ‘s blessing . “
