Kokosalaki is Diesel's Black Gold now

(all images from style.com)

When it comes to Diesel it has to do with denim and when it comes to Black Gold you get black leather. Those two, were the basic ingredients in the Fall/Winter 2010-2011 collection from Diesel Black Gold, Diesel's premium line. Leather, can also be linked to something...or better someone too. Sophia Kokosalaki has a unique way of working leather subtly as if it were silk and this collection was her debut one, as a creative director Diesel Black Gold. Renzo Rosso CEO and head of the Diesel Brand, already had bought shares in Sophia Kokosalaki's eponymous line and now offered her a new challenge. Beautyful skinny jeans, tight body con leather dresses, cowboy plaid shirts and boots, for a woman that feels strong and sexy. Kokosalaki managed to make us long for those pieces and hope that perhaps these dresses we can afford, contrary to those that read Sophia Kokosalaki on the label. I'll have the denim dungarees Karlie Kloss was wearing, the denim shirt with the black neck and the leather dress with the nude details on the top (still cannot deside which one, propably the one on Freja). Please deliver them as soon as possible Sophia. Thank you.

God Rest McQueen In Peace

Words cannot describe what the loss of The Great Alexander means to everyone who loves fashion. When I was younger and my love affair with fashion was only beginning, it was the time when John Galliano and Alexander McQueen had just completed their degrees at Central Saint Martin's, London and there was such a big buzz around their collections. And the moment I saw his collections I understood why everyone was saying that fashion should be about fantasy, innovation, imagination and so many more that McQueen delivered with his shows. He was the one that made me believe that you can make it to the fashion world, even if you don't have a rich & famous family background-his dad was a taxi driver and mother was a teacher. He was one the few who have managed to make his name a fashion synonyme starting from scratch. He was unique, a true artist and never did he lower his standards in the name of commercialism.

Everything he did was in the name of true Fashion.

One of the Greats is lost but will be remembered through his work.

Still Day D(io)reaming...

I cannot stop thinking/dreaming of the amazing dark green coat/dress Galliano showed at the Dior Couture show for Spring 2010 in Paris. I'm completely taken by the way this piece of silk is wrapped around the coat in a twist that is so feminine and chic, and of course the amazing green color of the whole piece combined with those purple satin pumps. Only for a few lucky ones...unfortunatelly.


D(io)reaming of Couture

Galliano for Dior always keeps it magical, luxurious and extravagant when it comes to couture, as he did once more for the Spring 2010 Dior Couture Show. The details are beautiful (many-many hours of handfrafts), the colors are vibrant and the whole equestrian idea unigue. Bonus points for the grey painted hair and the porcelain face, make up. Always an inspiration.
p.s. A pair of those boots for me will do ...for now
