[ doesn't only cover what's current but also what i think looks good + relevant, no matter what the trend | art, design, music, street style, architecture + film are just a sampling of other interests i love to write about, which in a roundabout way, do affect fashion ]

Known for his sexy, tight + skin baring creations, for his RTW Spring collection, designer Alexandre Vauthier tried something new.  Alongside his hot dresses, often baring the pelvic bone with a lot of leg or short ones, so tight you’d think he wrapped the models in saran wrap, he added several athletic looks + accents.   

There were timeless simple short sleeved mini dresses in sports jersey material but these were different.  Vauthier added luxe chin guards with high heeled sandals, making that look simply unforgettable.

1] ‘Megalith’ shows the different models as music box figures spinning + moving at a staccato pace, then transforming into children’s storybook characters that jumped out of their pages + into the studio, happy to get their ‘close up’!

2] ‘CHAOS’ is just that but a bit tame.  It looks like a pagan ritual with exceptionally dressed attendees, while the pointed hat figure, surrounded by a large circle, reminded me of a Nick Cave ‘Sound Suit’ that was opened like an umbrella + stayed like that.

3] ‘Ascension’, the final film, opens with a shot of models posed like mourners in many paintings of Jesus Christ before ascending up to heaven.  As soon as the main figure starts to rise, the models move with reverence + rejoice for what just took place.

As the temperature starts to slowly creep down, layering will once again become an essential daily ritual to dressing for Fall then Winter.  Now, two people could be wearing the same exact five pieces but depending on how they’re layered, is what determines who truly has style or not.  For their Fall collection, Turin label Page Three Hundred has created many perfect pieces, hand made in Italy, to help you layer your wardrobe with ease.

With every great look comes a solid foundation to build from + what better way to start than with pants, especially when they look this cool?  Above, Page Three Hundred offers two on-trend options, ‘Loose- Fit High Waist Trousers’ + ‘Structured Wide Leg Cullottes’.  Either one would look great with a long sleeved button-down oxford under a short sleeved sweater or one of tees by Page Three Hundred below.  A sleeveless Sixties mod style dress, either over or under the button-down, would give it an interesting silhouette with a gradual downwards expansion of widths.

To complete the look, one could either add a long or three-quarter knit, furry or metallic vest over it, under Page Three Hundred’s tweed coat above.

Another option would be partly tucking one of the tees below into either pair of pants, under the same tweed jacket, with a statement necklace along with two to three necklaces of varying lengths + widths.  As for footwear, one could wear heeled booties, open or peep toe, a platform oxford or slip-on with contrasting socks either in color or transparency, a pair of Doc Martens or a pair of high-heeled sandals.  To flip the script, you could throw on a pair of cool kicks, like an all-black pair with a white sole or a pair of Nike Air Force 1 High, in white with colored accents.

These pieces by Page Three Hundred are available for purchase at Wowcracy.
