• Daily inspiration: 6 Spring/Summer 2019 campaigns

    Each spring season is usually associated with colours: green, pink, orange, red, brown, white, purple. If you add to those the sand yellow and sky blue we are expecting from summer, the result will be a beautiful palette of shades that you simply have to explore.

    Some of our favourite brands and designers already did – all you have to do is enjoy the list with Spring/Summer 2019 campaigns.

    Stella McCartney Eyewear

    When it comes to eyewear, at Stella McCartney they say No to strange plastics made from fossil fuels. Instead, their frames are made from natural renewable resources. You maaaay want to hug a tree after watching the campaign, we are just warning you.

    Kenzo

    Kenzotopia is bright, wild, a bit fluffy, a bit fierce, a bit shy, a bit social and very bold. Kenzo’s woman will be bright, wild, a bit fluffy, a bit fierce, a bit shy, a bit social and very bold during the spring-summer season.

    Balenciaga

    What Balenciaga did was pay a stylish homage to The Matrix. We don’t know what the Wachowski brothers might say about it, but the Wachowski sisters will probably like it.

    Mango

    Mango is trying to build the future by creating “New Voices”. The brand took a few models, including Adwoa Aboah and Jolie Alien, and turned them into artists, activists and entrepreneurs.

    Giorgio Armani

    “Flowing fabrics and shimmery hues inspired by the beauty of water.” Yes, that is what we saw in the video. And we definitely liked it!

    Salvatore Ferragamo

    The Italian brand enriches its Patchwork of Characters concept by uniting a diverse group of individuals to revel in the beauty of sun-saturated, midsummer Italy.

    Which is your favourite campaign for Spring/Summer 2019?

  • Spring 2019 bag trends

    The fashion weeks we saw so far were full of glamour, unexpected shapes, but more or less expected trends in the world of bags. The designers showed some fresh combinations and styles for the spring among which were the big trends for 2019 – here are our favourites:

    Silver Bags

    Tinfoil fabrics were all over the spring collections for 2019 and bags were no exception. Pick your favourite design – a belt bag, a shoulder bag or a clutch, and make your style shining and futuristic.

    Straw and crochet bags

    The spring season is coming with even more straw and crochet bags and the carefree attitude they evoke. A large tote, a little crossbody round bag or a big circle bag, a backpack or even a basket – the size and shape is up to you.

    Clasp Bags

    The clasp bag is here again, classier than ever. Elie Saab enchanted us with a metallic style with a large clasp, while Coach’s idea for the perfect style was a small brown shoulder bag with three clasp pockets on the front.

    Micro bags

    Micro bags with chain strap are more delicate than ever. They were spotted on the runways of Brandon Maxwell, Acne Studios and Jil Sander. It’s true, you won’t be able to put more than a pack of gum and a couple of coins, but they are super cute and they can be an original attachment to a larger bag.

    The belt bag return

    We were far from shocked to see the belt bag in the Spring 2019 collections. Alexander Wang, Burberry, Chanel and Chloé are just a part of the designers who showed the belt style and they proved once again that it could be very elegant and stylish, as well as casual and sporty and it is most certainly here to stay for the next couple of seasons.
