This season we are celebrating the most sensual proposition of all times - silk that it. Whether in the form of a luscious boudoir 'bed outfit leaves the bedroom' do (otherwise known as slip dress) or floaty shirts and dresses, designers such as Phoebe at Celine, Wang and Balenciaga have made their point; all that gorgeous satin is too good for a simple goodnight. Even better when it comes in the form of the other megatrend - off shoulder everything. (Thank you Blanc Studio!)
Ellery, Rosie Assoulin, Edun (love this) and my latest favourite Johanna Ortiz, tell us that the 'show the right amount of (shoulder) skin' rule is here to stay. Well, I agree to let it stay forever. And I am sure you know that already.

Oh, before I forget..check this out as well. Better looking than candies or what?

Now let's discuss why are really here about. Delighted to discover Christia Charalambous, the creative mind behind Blanc Studio (based in Cyprus), an exceptional newcomer. Stunning satin and an amazing floaty cut, this dress has won me and my body over. Definitely deserves a repetition of the 'like a second skin' tag

Moving to the lower part of my two moving legs and given that I am sucker for slides of any kind with a strong tendency for dressing down all dresses, don't say I did not warn you... taking cues from Mr. Gvasalia (best known as Vetements), 90s athletic brands are back. With his cult-ish collaborations (18 of them!), he tried to make the fashion industry take a turn and reminded us of all the brands we seem to have 'forgotten'. Time to play some hide and seek with your closet? Think Champion, Reebok, Ellesse, Fila et al for new season. I don't know about you but #toocoolforschool will be my new hashtag do.
