It is impossible to be a designer and not love wedding gowns, they encompass everything good about fashion and take you to a dreamy, whimsical land filled with chiffon and lace. In Vera Wang’s 2013 collection she takes the whimsical land of Vera one step further by creating a sea of reds and burgundy laying out the scene of an imaginary sunset… one in which to run off into like the end of a romantic novel. We love. Would you wear a red wedding gown?
“Runaways” the ONIKAI Look Book Fashion Film is finally online!
From the designer about Runaways: “In the film the main character is being chased by her dark self and she comes to realize in the end that this dream land that her mischievous side is existing in is really reality. It is this idea that we can not really hide from those dark parts of our selves, and I really think this idea is translated into the collection.”
“…you can call Runaways a look book, a fashion film, a story… what ever you want to call it. The film does not highlight the collection as a whole, but some of my favorite key pieces that helped tell the story of Runaways and vice versa, it gives the emotion and idea behind the line.”
“This is why I love fashion so much it can not be contained in a box, it can not be cornered or limited to one idea… it is what ever us designers want it to be.”

Kanye West debuts his runway collection in Paris… and well… I am pleasantly surprised. It’s not that I didn’t think Kanye could actually conceptualize a good collection, but more so that it wouldn’t be cohesive. The collective in total in very cohesive, has good texture, fits into trend and has some unexpected elements such as whip like belts and matching belted up boots. I do however feel as if I have seen this collection before, the sort of ode to a female modern day warrior… while it is imaginative and strong I would say that it is not original, and a lot of the pieces look like they could fit right into Kim Kardashian’s closet or perhaps on sale at Barney’s. (seeing as most people don’t have the desire or funds to spend 3k on a fur top nowa days lol) In total I’d say… I’m interested to see what he dreams up for NEXT season.
