We love this Look!

This is one of the cutest girly looks that we here at MC love. 70's girl mixed with bohemian babydoll. Kerri looks so sweet in this photo taken by Adam Penney in St. John's. This is a great look all year round too. I love the higher waisted jean and this is something the 70's did right. Not disco.

Model Citizens In Vogue Report: Opulence

Gilded Opulence has taken over designer wear collections this Fall 2010 season. There is a great mix w
ith baroque rock and roll, the richness of sensual and deep colours, world influences and sharp structure to make fantasy-style evening looks.

Some styles more wearable than others, the resurgence of richness and luxury is surely an influence of the post recession climate. Often, fashion takes its cues from socio-political events and this style surely has something to say.

Strong women, severe angles and boldness of colour really make this trend. Check out collections such as Balmin, John Galliano, Lanvin, Missoni, the wonderful Alexander McQueen and Etro to see this style. Check out the images above to get a feel for the look! Featured above are designers from their Fall 2010 collections: Anna Sui, Alexander McQueen, Pucci, and Balmain.

To Get The Look

This look is so rooted in vintage! Look for 80's sequined jackets, embrace the sharp shoulders- even should pads! Long upholstery printed coats and heavy
rich fabrics (think wine, emerald, gold) and then play with sequins and studs to get the rock chic. These styles were present in every era and piecing them together is half the fun.

Check out the photo of Skye, shot at Model Citizens by Adam Penney. We had a bit of fun with an 80's sequined jacket to play on this kind of look. You don't need to go head first in the style, you can take quick moments of it to make it more wearable.

ANNA SUI Fall 2010- Layer, Mix and Paste! Anna Sui Plays with Arts and Crafts

I have always enjoyed the creative fever that comes with Anna Sui. All the pieces that we get into Model Citizens by AS are designed with a creative gal in mind. The consistent element though is the quality of fabric and workmanship. Check out one of my favourite Anna Sui blouses below (shown at the Downtown Fashion Show in ST. John's)

So Anna Sui's Fall 2010 collection. Oh let me count the reasons of why I have fallen in love! From the crafty whimsical nature of the graphics and design mixed with the ski bunny we love. Throw in a little 70's sweetheart whipped with a touch of Art Nouveau and you have this collection! The result of these combinations is a fantastic vintage inspired (but NOT retro) is so purely Anna Sui.

To Get The Look:
Never be afraid to mix patterns! Take graphic prints and mix with patterns. Layering is also key to this look- and a fearless attitude. Start with tights and move up. Notice that this show was done with all flat boots- totally Pret-a-Porter. Top off the look with accessories from fingerless gloves, fur hats, fur vert and boleros and scarves. Never be afraid of oversized things when trying to achieve this kind of vibe- it makes it look effortless and so fashion forward.
