Earlier today was the Elena Miro fashionshow. I say this with great respect, as I think that the Elena Miro shows are of such a high level that they can compete with the other labels showing during Milan fashionweek.
This time, they were showing their spring/summer collection for 2014 (that’s how it works in fashion, always thinking ahead!). I don’t think it was a “typical” show for them. They often go for classically beautiful, hourglass looks, ultrafeminine. But this show was more boxy silhouettes, a little bit sporty feel and some androgenous elements, more understated. Definitely different.
The collections shows some floral in bright, almost neon prints. We also see cleancut shorts, blousedresses, snakeprint (mixed with other prints), seethrough tops, round shoulders and short sleeves, assymetric skirts, colourblocking in muted colours, a lot of white and a decent amount of shine through silk and glossy leather fabrics.
To be honest, I wasn’t super excited when I first saw the collection (especially compared to how excited I was about their other collections), but after looking at them a couple more times it’s growing on me a bit more. There are some items that I like and would wear (though styled in a different way), but it’s not exactly my favorite collection. I’m also really curious to see what their actual collection will look like… Because this runwayshow is not what they sell. I know, crazy right? They have 2 runway shows a year, but not with the clothes they actually sell, and those usually look a lot different from what they use in the show. So we’ll see…
Here are the pictures from the runwayshow! What do you think of the collection?
Totally getting in touch with my inner Scot and rocking a bit of Tartan today. Today I’m going for a slightly more ladylike look, but I’ll definitely be wearing more tarten this fall and winter. I love how it can have a bit of an edge, a bit of punk, and a hint of catholic schoolgirl, if you want to.
The shirt is actually menswear; men’s shirts are longer (I always think women’s blouses are way too short!), and a lot of them come in a “slim fit” so they’re still quite tailored on a woman’s body. You could wear it buttoned all the way up if you want to, but it was looking a bit too stiff on me when I tried it, so I’m wearing it open. The skirt is my mom’s; though it’s been residing in my closet for quite some time now. I’m very lucky to have such a stylish mom.
I grabbed the earrings at Primark, they have fabulous jewellery there (especially if you like it a bit over the top, like me!).
