Modern Timeless Trends in Spur Magazine

I think it's the right time to remind ourselves about timeless trends which are modernized and offered by various designers this year. In the latest Spur Magazine December 2014 issue we see fashion model Abby Williamson shot by photographer Jiro Konami in masculine, hippie, preppy office, grunge-inspired looks. These four styles are already timeless trends, which are mixed up together and offered by many designers. It's interesting to see how brands are reinventing already known fashion garments. I think it's obvious to say, that we live in a century, where old trends are mixed up one with another, emerging new updates.

Zaitsev Laboratory Spring-Summer 2015 Runway

I'd like to share with you my favorite looks from Zaitsev Laboratory Spring-Summer 2015 runway show, which was presented at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. The show includes awesome creations made by the students of the designer: Katya Aslamova, Lia Gureeva, Natalia Kozhevnikova, Yulia Kupinskaya and Ksenia Shklyaeva. Each student showed something bold, sophisticated and trendy. Yulia Kupinskaya, for instance, presented Eternal Soulmates looks, which were defined by monochrome black and white colors. While Lia Gureeva 'Strokes to the Portrait' collection was distinguished by hats, we see awesome headwear which is seen on every model. Ksenia Shklyaeva offers Spring Twilight, which is inspired by nature, combined textures and decorative details. Spring collection, named FOLD_OFF, by Natalya Kozhevnikova was the only one, which consisted of tailored, evening appropriate looks made especially for men. Katya Aslamova delivered summer collection, named 'On the Verge of the Floor' which consisted of sophisticated and fashion forward creations.

Best Looks From Galetsky Spring-Summer 2015 Runway

This time I want to share with you some of my favorite looks from the latest Galetsky Spring-Summer 2015 collection, which was presented during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. The young designer Anton Galetsky (GALETSKY) carried the audience to Russia in 1980's and 1990’s, offering sports suits, massive and statement accessories, olscool hats, long coats, stylish baseball caps, gold chains, denim jumpsuits and cool sweatshirts. We see reptile skin, pleated garments, sequins, etc. I personally find the looks to be very similar to Moschino, DKNY and Celine collections. Models walked down the runway wearing statement coats with runners, bright separates printed in well-known labels, training sweatpants and shimmering suits. All in all, collection is defined by the mix of unmixable.

Best Looks From Aleksander Khrisanfov Spring-Summer 2015 Runway

During the first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia Aleksandr Krisanfov presented his latest Spring-Summer 2015 runway show. The collection appears to be modern, sophisticated and easy-to-style. The presented runway's show name is Line. The catwalk was full of lightweight fabrics, strict cuts, asymmetrical silhouettes, and eye-catching details. The following apparel is ideal for summer street walks and daywear at the office. The runway show was divided into men and women lines. The spring season comes with darken and rich colors, heavy outerwear, which appears to be practical during the spring time (it's essential to wear now cozy wear during "warm" seasons). Models walked down the runway sporting simple silhouettes, asymmetric cuts and contrasting textures, with a touch of avangard style. Hope you like these creations as much as me:

Best Looks From Alena Akhmadullina Spring-Summer 2015 Runway

This time I want to share with you best looks from the latest Alena Akhmadullina Spring-Summer 2015 runway show, which was presented in Moscow, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. The next warm season features kind of 'fairytale' details, where Russian look is combined with timeless symbols and modern touches. The basic leitmotiv of the spring season is the symbolism of beauty, which is embodied by floral print. You are about to see carnations, poppies, geraniums, thistle, dandelion flowers, which are simple, yet beautiful. Alena Akhmadullina was inspired by the most tactile and tender details – delicate lace, half-transparent fabrics and colors. Well, I personally find those floral prints to be the real standout of the line.

How To Wear Cardigans In A Grunge Way

Keep it grunge and sophisticated. Today I am going to show you various ways how to wear cardigans in a grunge way. Thanks to many brands and designers this awesome style is updated with modern details, so you can make it look very unique and individual. Look at these great offerings, which combine vintage touches and mid 1990's details. As you can see, there is a chance to keep the balance, by teaming slouchy cardigans with rolled-up jeans, flared and pleated mid-length skirts and cut-off shorts. What I love about these combinations, then it is the layering, comfort and effortless look. All the presented pieces are loose-fit and knitted. This year must-haves are those oversized designs which look polished but casual. The trick wearing those styles and not looking like a total throwback is to pair them with simple separates. You are about to find eye-catching looks, which are great shopping options.
