Missoni Spring/Summer 2013

MISSONI SS13

As promised from my last post, more Milan stuff will be posted. My photographer KO loves Italian fashion house Missoni, and so do I. Missoni SS13 at Milan Fashion Week presented a care-free, light-hearted collection to welcome our forth coming seasons. It was simply sheer elegance, integrated with essential spring colors. The presentation inentionally used coloring scale (from white-red-orange-green-blue-black) format, very much reminded my Art 101 class. Added to pieces, we saw geometric prints, and reptitive patterns. Masculinity was subtly seen beneath the youthful modern girl style.

Binzento Blog Visits Milano

Binzento Vincente Blog in Milano
"People, Fashion, and Bloggers"
(Photos by: KO and Raniti; Edited by: Binzento Vincente)
Last week marked the end of SS13 Milan Fashion Week. Binzento Vincente blog took the opportunity to cover things that were going on in the city. Thankfully, my trusted photographers/correspondents, KO and Raniti were there to help me to "capture the moments". Fashion Week in Milan, Italy was no doubt exciting. I will be posting more photos of it in subsequent posts (hopefully not too late since I'll be flying to California next week). Representing my blog, KO and Raniti also attended bloggers event, and took a peek at the new Just Cavalli store opening. Throughout the week, the ladies of Binzento Vincente encountered many fascinating people like Anna Dello Russo, Donatella Versace, and Anna Wintour; fashion of Milano streetstyle; and bloggers including Bryanboy and Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad)! :) There are just too much to discuss in one blog post, but below are some of the photos when Binzento blog visited Milano. :)

Nanette Lepore Visits YYC Holt Renfrew

Nanette Lepore Visits Holt Renfrew Calgary

This year marks the 175th Anniversary of Holt Renfew. In celebrating this once in a life time year, New York fashion designer Nanette Lepore flew in to Calgary for the first time to meet and greet the Holt Renfrew YYC location. Nanette spent the day at a luncheon party hosted by the store's Divisional Vice President and General Manager Debra Kerr. There were models also wearing Fall/Holiday Nanette Lepore Collection. I arrived the store in the late afternoon and got a chance to meet the designer. She was very friendly. We chatted briefly and I asked her about the original idea behind the current collection on showcase. The pieces gave me a sense of high energy tribal inspired concept, with a touch middle-eastern taste. Nanette said it wasn't inentional to be that way. The idea was to create a collection that leans towards masculinity in women's wear - almost like a male in extreme flamboyant clothing. She also said it was an inspiration of Oscar Wilde. The team had mix-n-match different patterns and colors, which ultimately decided a suitable fit for the vision and taste. Looking at the girls in Nanette's collection not necessarily gives me the masculine vibe, but surely a strong, modern, and confident female character.
It was a pleasure to meet Nanette in person. I know my photographer/correspondent KO is a huge huge fan of hers. I know that Nanette's team is currently traveling in Chicago with the brand. Best wishes and we look forward to your visits again.
