Inspirational Saturday

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I’ve been in final exams, and although I’m not as half as stressed as I should be I’ve had tooons of work. Mainly I’m preparing for an upcoming trip… I’m moving to the other side of the world for six months but it’s never easy to leave home, even when you know incredible experiences are waiting for you. Anyway, I hope I can post in a daily basis next week, how about that? I leave you with my favorite editorials of the week, hope you enjoy them!

Lavin x H&M runway show, fun fun fun!

Just when everyone thought the Lanvin x H&M fever was running out with the soon on sale date we face one of the funniest and merriest moments in fashion this year. The Lanvin x H&M runway show took place in the Pierre Hotel, where the fashion people such as Anna Dello Russo, Bryanboy, Hilary Alexander and Sofia Coppola gathered to see the most talked collection of H&M. The runway was no deception, being as daring as the photographs of the lookbook with Irina Lazareanu. I’m deeply in love with the styling they did for the runway, a mixture between the dark side of Lanvin and the easy going allure of H&M. Sophistication within fun might be the best way to describe not only the collection but the whole event. Ask Ms. Dello Russo, she looked as happy as a child walking with a poodle in a pink Lanvin x H&M.

The Lookbook Inspiration




Lately I’ve been obsessed with these three lookbooks. They’ve become my favorites, and I suggest them strongly as both winter and spring inspirations. Whether you’re going for the futuristic, the sophisticated or the sexy rebel little child, these are incredibly cool. I think if I had to choose I would go for the Stolen Girlfriends lookbook, there’s something evil and cool about a little girl being such a bad ass.

At last we have full length photos of the Tom Ford collection for womenswear. I’m loving the attitude, the dresses and specially that scaled jacket.

Vogue Shopping Experience

Vogue Shopping Experience was a kind of Fashion’s Night Out organized by Vogue Mexico, with the sole purpose of promoting fashion in Mexico, specially in Masaryk Avenue. Stores such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Tiffany & Co, and more, took part in this event.

At Gucci

Being compared with Fashion’s Night Out, specially this year’s, was a difficult standard for our Vogue Shopping Experience to reach. All the attendees were expecting glamour, fashion, cocktails and fun. Basically, that was achieved but more than one person went home disappointed.

Although the organization was  good, the promotion of Vogue Shopping Experience as well as the special events in each store were kept pretty simple. Cocktails and snacks  were the rigorous in each one. Some of them tried to include the consumer with their own products, like Hermès, which held a brief course of how to style your scarf. The Vogue Passport was a nice touch, even an innovative one, but was quickly out-shined by the lack of creativity in the rest of the event. Even the allowance to take photographs was restricted, which only made more difficult to spread the word and support this event.

Maybe next year we will find a more concrete image of the event, more people in the streets, and more atractive events in each store. The important is that this doesn’t remain in a single effort, and that Vogue Mexico continues to organize, promote and improve this type of events; I’m certainly hoping for Vogue Shopping Experience to be way much better next year.
