Monaco Celebration Day!


Morning!   Take a look at the stylish Monaco family!
High fashion with a touch of nostalgia !
"National day" is typically celebrated with fireworks over the harbor in the evening
and mass  in the St Nicholas Cathedral the next morning.
The people of Monaco may celebrate by waving the Monegasque flag.
The former Olympic swimmer, who married Prince Albert in 2011 after meeting him 11 years earlier at a swim meet in Monaco. was wearing all black except for her white hat.
Princess Charlene  has adorable twins who seem to be growing up so quickly!

I have a fascination for Monaco ever since I saw Princess Grace make her way
on a ship to Marry Prince Rainier!
Her family has certainly blossomed!

The date of the National Day is traditionally determined by the reigning Prince and is held annually with fireworks and a mass service.

Marc Jacobs Runway 2016

Leave it to Mark Jacobs to create a wild and creative fashion show.
The models wore crayon colored dread lock  wigs.  Textures of Brocades, silks, furs,satins, denims metallics and knits were pieced together, somewhere between Madonna's  "Desperately Seeking Susan" and "Zoolander"

I wonder what pieces will make it into the boutiques.
Gotta give him credit, Mark's show was far from boring.
The garments were made with attention to every detail and
the beautiful workmanship.

 See you on Ralph Lauren,s post later today!

Alexander Wang NYC Fashion Week 2016

Hello,   It's been awhile and I couldn't let NYC Fashion week go
without a post or two.    Today Alexander Wang showed his
collection with a strong California vibe.  
I like simplicity and this collection reflects basics
with a twist and turn of fabric ties.  
Soft fabric and colors still prevail.  The sandals are
rich leather that are buckled at the ankle. The  small handbags
are very cool accents and a reminder that small is better.
I wish you a wonderful fall and will stay in touch!

Alexander Wang

Wang was after a similar effect last season, but the way he went about it then was less subtle. It doesn’t get much more clich├ęd than pole dancer prints. Backstage he called this show, “50 Shades of Grey meets Lords of Dogtown.” Sex is still essential to the message, but he went about delivering it in a way that felt truer to brand Wang, tapping into his California roots. It didn’t all boil down to a bathing suit, but it came close. There were bikini tops made from button-down fabric and silk evening numbers modeled after bikinis. Rash guards morphed into clingy knit dresses and boudoir-ish slips were cut in neon tracksuit material. This wasn’t radical stuff, but it was cool. And it gibes with what a seatmate described as social media’s tendency to turn all of us, but maybe young women most of all, into exhibitionists. Wang has always been in step with the zeitgeist. In fact, it was so cool that anybody over, oh, say, 35 (with the exception, of course, of dear old Madge), might’ve left feeling alienated. For people like us? There’s the Adidas collab.
