For Spring Summer 2018, J&M Davidson takes us on a colorful journey via Mexico City and Istanbul, with a vibrantly-hued palette and bold silhouettes inspired by the cities’ striking landscapes.
The collection transports one effortlessly from city to city, with designs that capture the bohemian spirit of an urban nomad. Subtle details, tactile textures and bold proportions lend the collection a spirited, optimistic attitude.
Vividly saturated colors lifted from the canvases of Diego Rivera, Henri Mattisse and David Hockney embolden romantic peasant blouses and maxi dresses in fuchsia pink and apple green, evoking Mexico’s candy-striped buildings. The yellow floral silk brocade Anatolia coat, inspired by those traditionally worn during the Ottoman Empire, stands out alongside the masculine-meets-feminine twill Piper jacket, natural hemp Hobie duster coat and striped Anatolia coat in ecru and navy blue linen. Paired with the white cotton organdie Rose dress and easy, airy Ariel top, the collection captures the cool blend of androgyny and nonchalant femininity synonymous with J&M Davidson.
The shapes and colors of the Spring Summer 2018 handbag styles reflect the relaxed mood of a modern day vagabond – uncomplicated silhouettes in rich navy, sahara beige and caramel, as well as Mediterranean camellia pink and China blue. The new silhouettes include the Axel – an effortless, everyday suede tote that’s practical and unfussy, with a handy pocket hidden at its base: ideal for a woman on the move. For evening, the Eleonor handbag is something a little more structured while still insouciant – the brass hardware, oblong shape and sturdy frame allow it to make a quiet statement. Smaller but no less smart, the Aime is a vintage-inspired top-handle bag brought up to date with a discreet row of studs – it’s elegant yet carefree, much like the J&M Davidson woman.
With its exotic color palette, effortless charm and bohemian flare, the Spring Summer 2018 collection conjures up a sense of urban escapism.
I've been a Christopher Kane fan for a while. [Love his menswear too!] For pre-fall 2016 he has produced such an elegant collection. Kane has a modern sensibility and approach to fashion design, using neon, edgy elements, embellishments and graphics paired with classic silhouettes. Ruffles, sequins, wicked talent and [Kering resources] make Christopher Kane pre-fall very very desirable.
Ombre sweaters for him and fur-lined bombers for her - AllSaints have all the edgy looks you want this Fall. AllSaints is modern, chic and stylish and boasts an effortless feel that resonates with the hip, fashion-forward fashionado/fashionista. That's not to say that there aren't some absolutely amazing, head-turning pieces and looks in their Fall 2015 collections for men and women.
I am personally obsessed with the AllSaints Reeve Sheerling Biker Jacket in rust - a total must-have... and pretty much all of their boots! For the ladies, if you must own just one piece, then definitely go for the AllSaints coats. They are very chic and you'll certainly be making a fashion statement. Of course, you won't be able to resist AllSaints, suede skirts and super sexy thigh-high boots.
I've written about designer Nina Gleyzer before but we're Facebook friends and exquisitely elegant images of her designs keep popping up in my news feed - and I love it! I had to share this one, titled "Lady" with you. Nina's designs are so chic, so fabulous, so couture. Visit her website and if you're in Atlanta, make sure and stop by her Buckhead studio for an original Nina's Couture. Nina herself is quite the character - engaging, talented and she'll captivate you with many wonderful stories. We definitely will be featuring Nina Gleyzer on fashionadoTV at some point this year! Happy Monday everyone & stay chic!
What happens when a fashion label with a motorcycle jacket legacy hires the design director for outerwear at Burberry? You get an elegant and sophisticated Resort Collection. And that's exactly what the former Burberry director / VP, Martin Cooper, delivered. Cooper swept Belstaff, through the use of leather and linen, away to a time when travel was chic. Powered with an excellent fit, impressive detailing and impeccable tailoring, this collection will have you jet-setting around the world. View Collection:
