Beauty goes BRIGHT

Staying in on a Friday can be boring, Design Scene is always a good place to waste time looking at all things fashion.  Tonight I came across a shoot for July’s edition of Marie Claire China shot by Oscar Cecere and styled by Riccardo Linarello, the ‘Aquababy’ shot explores the new sport chic swimwear that is quickly becoming the trend of the season.  However it wasn’t the fashion that caught my eye, it was the amazing make up by Augusto Picerni; colourful, vibrant, contrasting and just really really unique and eye catching.  I especially love the idea of a colourful brow……

MSGM Menswear SS15

It is no secret that Milan is recovering from the fashion rut it’s been stuck in since the 90’s, after all there’s only so many Versace skimpy’s a guy can handle and Fendi Baguette bags a girl can own!  Perhaps this is why the Milan fashion scene has followed in London’s footsteps by becoming increasingly keen to push young talent.  Stella Jean is one of the big new names in Womenswear and as Mens fashion month drew to a close, it seemed there was at least one very promising name; MSGM.  Until SS14 MSGM was a little known brand started by salesman turned fashion designer Massimo Giorgetti.  Over the past few season MSGM has never failed to deliver colour, print and the overall wearability factor in both women and menswear.  For me, the menswear has been a highlight of this SS15 season, showing diverse silhouettes with a cool, street aesthetic – the wow factor as well as the wearability factor.  Having just released their women’s pre SS15 collection also (which in my opinion is simply one of the best collections out there); Milan have indeed supplied the goods.  As a girl, I definitely want to be an MSGM girl and the guys? Well I wouldn’t mind dating one!
