It’s Fashion Week! AAAAAHHHHH!!!! That’s the feeling. I was calm until the day of my first show, which is when I remembered gaining 15 pounds of baking weight since June. What am I going to wear? And how fast can I get dressed, since I had regular person stuff to do before the show?
I managed to get there just in time to hustle into my seat, flying past Rosario Dawson, Camille Rowe, Poppy Delevingne and Olivia Palermo attend the Desigual fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 (photo courtesy of Getty Images & Deborah Hughes Inc).
After much pulling, tugging, and throwing of clothes on the floor I found this wonderfully forgiving, silky striped dress from Daisy Fuentes for Kohl’s. Not only did it fit? It had pockets! I wore my new Buddha mala for serenity necklace from Jacqueline Rose jewelry, as well as her green oasis bracelet and Illumination handchain. My jade and silver Lisa Hoffman Beauty fragrance bracelet (clary sage scent) was popped on as well- I kind of wear it every day now.
Superstar Victoria’s Secret Angel opened the show with an adorable Hawaiian print top, and an equally adorable floral crown. So SxSW, right?
That happy mood continued as models came bouncing out wearing the type of loose, breezy separates that anyone who has just gone through a massive heatwave can appreciate:
The “Say Something Nice’ collection for ss2015 is ‘inspired by nature’s flora and fauna… A cool Mediterranean spirit is combined with South-American motifs…’, in short- hang loose everyone! Relax!
Of course black and white made a strong showing, with intricately patterned dresses that held prismic splashes of color:
Of course- the wonder color orange made an appearance. Woven into bold jungle patterns and splashed across flowing maxi dresses and flippy minis. Orange is that color that looks new every time you see it, so why not make it color of the season- a lot…
Don’t worry, though- next spring Desigual is unleashing the full rainbow on you! Primary colors like yellow and a powerful electric blue were also well represented:
It’s all about being free, and letting the cool breezes flow through you. Co-designed by Christian Lacroix, ss2015 is declared the season of ‘Happy casual’. As usual in Desigual land- la vida es chula, and the clothes are all saying something nice.
