• 5 nail trends for Spring 2020

    Is it time to let the spring hues in your life? The answer you are looking for is YES, a thousand times YES! Here are 5 of the most popular-to-be nail trends for Spring 2020. Let the sunshine in ☀

    Minimalistic nudes

    Keep it low-key: try pale pink nails plus small white dots, a black stripe on some of your fingers or another tiny accent. Believe us: those are more visible than you think!

    Creamy hues

    A very pretty combo (Oscar de la Renta-approved) is orange against taupe or pink against cream yellow. It will be a bit extravagant and yet very ladylike, so just give it a go next time you’re visiting the nail salon.

    Shades of blue

    Okay, we agree blue is more of a summer shade, but given the fact that classic blue is the colour of 2020, we were prepared to see it everywhere since day 1 (day one being the day Pantone announced their Colour of the year, in case you wonder). All blue variations will do: cobalt, teal, ultramarine, powder blue.

    Barely-there French manicure

    Make the line as thin as possible, may we suggest even the term “micro”? This interpretation of the classic manicure is subtle and sophisticated. Do we need to say it goes with absolutely everything in your wardrobe?

    Flora & fauna

    <Florals for spring? Groundbreaking!>

    We do remember Miranda Priestly’s comment, but it turns out one can never have enough floral details when it comes to the spring season. But if one does, there are plenty of catchy and bright butterflies which can fly directly on your nails.

  • Colour radar: neons

    The neon trend that was so popular in the 90s seems to have made a huge comeback within the last few years. Even if you’re not a fan of bright shades, designers will make sure that you see them everywhere.

    The fashion world noticed a massive invasion in 2018 when many of the spring/summer collections for 2019 demonstrated a neon supremacy. Some of the names that included neon pieces on the runway were Jeremy Scott, House of Holland, Emporio Armani, Emilia Wickstead, Prabal Gurung and Tibi.

    Fashionistas all over the world embraced the trend and we saw fluorescent clothes and accessories in green, orange, pink and yellow literally everywhere during the spring-summer season. Neon snake prints, neon organza, neon patent leather were also huge… and they still are.

    As awards season 2020 commenced, we saw another neon wave on the red carpet. Kristen Bell wore a bright green Cong Tri jumpsuit, Charlize Theron picked a neon Dior dress, Zoey Deutch chose a yellow Fendi Couture creation with dramatic sleeves, Pryanka Chopra showed us a pink sleeveless gown by Cristina Ottaviano. We also have to mention Billie Eilish’s neon green hair and the hot pink Versace leather suit worn by Lil Nas X at the Grammys.

  • Golden Globes and Critics Choices

    Awards season 2020 is officially upon us. The first half of the first month of the new year already made us witnesses to the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards.

    shutterstock_1613633824

    Before we move to the names & titles with the most nominations/awards and the favourite list with best dressed celebrities, we have a few cool facts for the ceremonies that we would like to share with you.

    1. The Golden Globes went vegan
      Okay, that is not completely true, but the menu during this year’s edition totally supported veganism. It included beetroot soup, mushroom “scallops” and a vegan interpretation of the French Opera cake.
    2. Phoebe Waller-Bridge decided to prove she is not just an impeccable talent, but also a good human being. Here is why she is selling her Golden Globes outfit (a glamorous two-piece by Ralph & Russo) in order to donate the money for the Australian wildfires cause. Great job, Fleabag!
    3. The Critics (and all their guests) ate plant-based burgers and vegan burritos. Evidently the trend during Awards season 2020 will be “healthy diet”. We don’t mind.

    The winners?
    1917 won the Golden Globe for Best motion picture – drama, and its director Sam Mendes won the award for Best director in a motion picture. Marriage Storywas also nominated for Best motion picture – drama, and both Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson got a nomination for their roles in the movie. Johansson lost to Renée Zellweger (Judy), Driver lost to Joaquin Phoenix (Joker). Laura Dern did win the Best supporting actress in a motion picture award for Noah Baumbach’s movie. Her male counterpart was Brad Pitt for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Speaking of handsome men, Taron Egerton took home many many female hearts together with the Best actor in a musical/comedy prize for his Elton John reincarnation in Rocketman.

    According to the Critics, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood deserves to be called Best picture. The best actors were still Renée Zellweger and Joaquin Phoenix, no changes within the best supporting actors either: Brad Pitt & Laura Dern. There was a tie for Best director between Bong Joon-ho (Parasite) and Sam Mendes (1917). Once Upon a Time in Hollywood by Tarantino was the best original screenplay, Greta Gerwig’s Little Women was the most appreciated adapted version. Roman Griffin Davis won the award for Best young actor for his role in Jojo Rabbit and in case you still haven’t seen the movie, you should book a ticket as soon as possible.

    Rihanna opted for Fenty. We are not sure we’re digging the cut, but at least we like the pale green colour of her creation. Another stylish gal that chose a design from her very own fashion label? Alexa Chung in ALEXACHUNG.

  • Designer Remix: Zac Posen

    Elegance, grace, romance, femininity, splendour and a dash of ambiguity. Zac Posen showed it all.

    shutterstock_158761331

    The American fashion designer recently announced that he is closing his eponymous fashion house. Here is a tribute to all that he taught us about beauty.

    shutterstock_60825880

    Zachary Posen was born and raised in New York in a Jewish family of a painter and a corporate attorney. Since early age, he showed an interest in fashion. He attended a private school in Brooklyn. He studied at Parsons School of Design in New York and did an internship at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute before moving to London to attend Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.

    shutterstock_165566540

    In 2002, Posen created a dress for Naomi Campbell. The rest is history. His New York Fashion Week debut was with the Spring-Summer 2002 collection (Zac was 22 years old!). After seeing the models on the runway, The New York Times announced that a star was born. The star gained recognition with his elegant and glamorous designs.

    Some of the famous actors Posen has dressed are Cameron Diaz, Nathalie Portman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Winslet and Sarah Jessica Parker. In 2008, he designed a collection for Target and in 2014, he went for a line with bridal gowns.

    Naomi Watts is the next fashion chef-d’oeuvre. The actress wore a Dior Haute Couture dress and looked like a real-life princess in it. Good job, Naomi!

    Gwyneth Paltrow opted for something more than style: timeless vintage design. And when we say vintage, we mean Valentino from 1963.

    You probably remember Carice van Houten from her Game of Thrones performance. The Dutch actress supported a fellow Dutch designer: Ronald van der Kemp.

  • Nail trends for Autumn 2019

    The autumn season is knocking on our doors. And even if you still have that very last seaside vacation on your list, the time has come to think about some of the trends that everyone will be sporting during the next months. We have good news for you: they will definitely brighten up your daily look!

    Let’s see the nail trends for Autumn 2019.

    Gradient nails
    Gradient of glitter in all the metal shades you could possibly think of, that’s what we’re talking about!

    Exotic prints
    Leopard prints, tiger nails, tortoise shell; on one accent nail, on half of each nails. You really have plenty of possibilities…

    Two-toned
    Try those combinations: dark blue + narrow azure tips; hot pink + narrow pale pink tips.
    Where did we see it? House of Holland, Iceberg.

    Negative space
    In case you are wondering what “negative space” stands for: that is the design which Prabal Gurung’s runway turned into a trend: lack of nail polish on some part of your nails.

    (Almost) nudes
    Keep your nails (almost) nude and glossy. The palette includes vanilla custard, elegant grey, crême de pèche (peach cream) – everything will do.

    Pearls
    You have two options: to put those on your nails or above your nails. We saw the first example chez Adeam, and the second one – chez Rodarte. Is that chic mani the new classy? We believe so.

    Which is the first trend you are willing to try this autumn? Our personal favourite are the pearls, we’re just not sure if we can pull it off!

  • Colour radar: vanilla custard

    Now that we’re getting closer to the transitional season between summer and autumn, we noticed one colour in particular which most of our favourite designers embraced in their Autumn-Winter 2019 collections.

    blog-2019-08moncler-png-2

    Vanilla custard is an off-white hue or a light shade of beige. It can be worn from head to toe in a monochrome outfit or combined with some of the bright shades that will be dominating during the cold months to come (according to the experts, those are orange tiger; chili pepper; galaxy blue).

    vanilla-custard

    Where did we see the vanilla custard look? In the collections shown by Valentino (trench coats, long skirts), Dolce & Gabbana (coats), Tibi (head to toe ensembles), Sportmax (layers such as hooded coats, sweaters & midi trousers).

    Here are some ideas how to implement this smooth and creamy white in your wardrobe for the transitional season:

  • Shoes for Summer 2019

    We are pretty sure you still have (at least) one more vacation on the list. Even if you planned to spend it near the seaside, you will probably need a nice pair of shoes for the long beach walks, for cocktail hours or for fancy dinner dates, right?

    No worries, we have selected some of the best shoes for summer 2019 for you!

    For coastal walks

    Perhaps the most comfortable choice for those will be a pair of sneakers. Just keep your flip-flops close – in the handbag, for example. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to spend some time on a newly discovered beach, do you?

    For casual cocktail hours

    And when we say casual, we mean a mimosa for brunch or margaritas at 3 pm. So don’t opt for too much extravaganza, pick a pair of comfy espadrilles and dare to have that second drink!

    COS от remixhsop.com

    For fancy dinner dates

    Now that would be the time to sparkle! Carrie Bradshaw made Manolo Blahnik shoes a must for fancy romantic dinner dates. Pick a pair of royal blue flatswith a sparkling detail or the iconic Mary Janes with a strap. Their Majesties will do the rest for you.
