MB Fashion Week Madrid: Andres Sarda

bloglovin

Andres Sarda is a swimsuit/lingerie designer. I absolutely adore the Andres Sarda runway shows, because they are always just a big party. The designs are not super wearable but they are gorgeous, and I love seeing them, especially the silky capes and robes that float down the runway.

This season, the theme was Las Vegas-bright, sexy, bold and glittery. My personal favorite was the Britney Spears Toxic video-esque glittery sheer bodysuit. Really, I can´t think of a single occasion where this may be appropriate (except for a Britney Spears music video of course!) but it was still absolutely fabulous.

Mid show, a curtain dropped, and live DJ´s were spinning at the top of the runway. One of them was Bimba Bose. Later, Bimba walked the runway as Elvis, with a model dressed as a bride. Viva Las Vegas!

MB Fashion Week Madrid: Teresa Helbig

bloglovin

Teresa Helbig is always one of my favorites for her light and airy sportswear and cute dresses. Of course I was not disappointed this season with her 70´s retro undertones, pantsuits and of course, her onesie short outfits, my absolute fave. In fact I need to head to the gym for a solid leg workout so I can wear some of the fab daisy dukes shorts this summer! Images taken by Paloma Canseco.

Favorite: white onesie with gold studs and sweater onesie.

MB Fashion Week Madrid: Francis Montesinos

The Franscis Montesinos collection, ¨Silk On the Road¨, simply put, was bossy and fabulous. Inspired by the Silk Road, the Asian and Middle Eastern influences made the line unique and bold. Bright colors, gorgeous silks, tons of imagery of peacock feathers, this line was extreme and just so much fun. I adored the long onesies too. And the blue cowboy boots were to die for. An amazing collection! Photos by Paloma Canseco.

MB Fashion Week Madrid: Maria Barros

Maria Barros showed gorgeous collection of slimfit, pencil type dresses and gowns. The colors were bold and sharp, evergreen, pale pink and cobalt blue. Unfortunately for me, several of the looks were tea length, and us short girls just cannot make that work, but it looked amazing on the models.  I also loved the touches of blue in the models hair.

MB Fashion Week Madrid: Devota y Lomba

Devota y Lomba showed a gorgeous collection of 80´s inspired looks.  The tan colors also gave it a retro 70´s vibe as well. Playing with geometric shapes and volume, the line was modern and fun. I especially loved ALL the mint green looks, a fabulous color-although quite springish for a fall line.

MB Fashion Week Madrid: Duyos

bloglovin

The Duyos collection was beautiful and soft, yet juxtaposed with an edgy modern twist. The girls wore floaty, fringy, flowery garments that seemed to swim down the runway, all with determined stares and black lipstick. This fairy like, ethereal collection seemed more spring than fall, but I’d take some flowers on a cold February day anytime! Excuse the poor quality of the photos—-technical issues!

MB Fashion Week Madrid: Roberto Verino

bloglovin

Major flashback to Mad Men times! This amazing collection was inspired by the 1950′s and 60′s, paying homage to some incredible icons like Audrey Hepburn. The first part of the collection was filled with tweed and houndstooth with sexy matching over the knee boots. The second part was literally dripping with luxury and glamour! Loved every second of this collection. Thanks to the lovely Paloma Canseco for the photos!

MB Fashion Week Madrid: Amaya Arzuaga

Amaya Arzuga showed a gorgeous collection in her typical style of garments with interesting silhouettes and plenty of volume. Pleats, leather, and my personal favorite, capes defined her Fall/Winter 2014-15 line. I loved the touch of evergreen that was thrown in to some of the looks, and of course the signature of the collection: the Kaleidoscope print.

Coat Envy

So I was just in London and Milan for Mens Collections, totally fabulous, you can read all of my recaps on Best Dressed Man on the Planet. I had hoped to get a little time in for womenswear or for shopping but no luck on that end. The only thing I was able to snap while rushing from one show to the other was this GORG yellow coat…I don’t even know the name of the boutique I was at. I just know this coat stopped me in my tracks! It looks so soft and wonderful too…don’t you want this wrapped around you right now?!

I WANT THIS COAT!

Christmas Is Coming!

bloglovin

One of the few things I like about winter is the onset of the Christmas holidays (the other things are the smell of cinnamon and suede boots-and that’s pretty much it). I love seeing big cities, such as Madrid and NYC set up their Christmas lights and decorations. Paris, Rome and Lisbon are also beautiful to see at Christmas, in my opinion. This year is a little different, this will be the first time EVER I am going to the USA for Christmas since I have lived in Spain. I’m heading to Arizona, and I am not going to lie, I am thrilled to see my family and sunny skies again. However, it will definitely be different not having all the typical things at Christmas I have gotten used to over the past six years here in Madrid. Anyway, although I am heading out mid December, I was happy to get a little taste of Christmas here in Madrid in a boutique window display the other day-the shop’s name is FL and it’s located on Calle de Ortega y Gasset. Anyway, the display was a simple woman’s dress made out of pine and Christmas tree. Although it’s not what I would consider wearable, I was thrilled to see a little Christmas spirit around these parts!

Christmas is coming to Madrid!
