Glam leather, mini dresses, vivid furs, lurex and turbans… It flaps like an air of british musical stage on this summer pieces signed by Hedi Slimane. Not so surprising since the designer is passionnate about the rock’n’roll stars that he used to shoot with great talent. Rebel and offhand, this collection revisits some crucial pieces from the feminine wardrobe that Yves Saint Laurent created in the 70’s. Impossible to resist in front of so much optimistism and real femininity.
Luxurious materials, sophisticated cuts both advocate the smart seventies style and without no fuss in this collection, in a BCBG version. Hemstitched knits give a twist to the masculine suit jackets, while printed tops boost raw denim. I either won’t resist to velvet capri pants Carnaby Street style and so as bags even less boots, strongest accessories of this wardrobe that I really want to adopt…daily.
For this summer, the famous designer celebrates the seventies with the come back of the mini skirt, here, magnificently represented, diagonally cut while revealing perfect bodys. A puff of freedom, and provocation that gives the desire to march in the city or along the sea shore, dressed like a sexy and mischevious pirate. Special mark for the pressed logo sweater with the name of the designer like art works by Richard Prince. A must have and a youth therapy.
Sea, sex and sun… The collection signed by Peter Dundas transports us straight to Portofino. Weaved mini dress paired with boots in natural suede, cashmere print, muslin dresses, sandals with sexyness walk, tangerine tones, long wavy hair and round sunnies… All the 70’s codes illustrate the collection of this summer. Über glam and pop as a Kiraz’s drawing. I want some more !
‘A fleur de jungle’… How can we forget his last exhibition ? His magical animals, tackled to their death, became heaven’s fantasy, some remains of us. He stains us, calls us to mind, charms us and disrupts us without stopping. No wealth for fear, the miror of our anxiety only. Hunger and thirst of the two hands reuniting, snakes maybe, the secret of this ‘Main en miroir’, the good or the worst, the one or the other.

I always love the Chanel tweed… Here is it reinterpreted umpteenth times with as much as excellence than surprise. Army spirit this time, accessorized with gold sandals, perfect blend of moods and feminity. Arty winks, sexy stitch, flashy boots that I’d pair with a men knitwear on a mini skirt… Everything mention the smart parisian girl who’s not afraid by colors and doesn’t take herself seriously. What a look !
I want to wear everything ! From the clothes to the accessories. A collection of seventies looks that remind me of Jacqueline Bisset. Proportions are perfect… Above the knee skirts, large and shorts pants, satchel bags, suede boots and wedges with the right height. So chic ! The essense of a laid-back luxury over mastered till the details, colors, materials. Girls are so pretty, naturals, their hairdo done with just a ponytail. No need a logo to be a Gucci girl !
In March, we go straight to the point. Or maybe the colors…bright, those from the 70’s, joyful and decadent. I have spotted them on every catwalks from Gucci, to Louis Vuitton, Pucci, Saint Laurent etc. The chic gypsy style like Talitha Getty, Jane Birkin, Lauren Hutton, Marianne Faithfull… Hippie chic are definitely back on the stage of fashion. After all, did these casual really disappear ? Designers bring back up this style so charimatic and feminine. Including me !
