Although summer officially begins today, I started my morning reading an article about the legendary New Year party organized by the famous Studio 54. One year, Robert Isabell, a well-known event planner, covered the club’s floor with four tons of glitter. Thus, the 70’s aren’t only famous for their explosion of color in make-up, the abundance of metallic materials, pumps, flared trousers, and hair split right in the middle, but also for a generalized glitter hysteria.
I admit that I’m not one of the follower of excess spangled clothes or glossy materials. I enjoy, though, that fashion designers reinvent the world of these years, taking the defining elements and adjust them to a more refined manner. Honestly, if I wouldn’t have seen them with my own eyes and I just heard the description of the Saint Laurent tennis shoes, which have applied stars shimmering in shades of red, blue and white, as a tribute to the American flag, I had no doubt that they look cheap. But the sneakers exceeded all my expectations and thus I matched them with an emerald green dress from P.A.R.O.S.H.
L. A groupies in Paris Couture is the message that the talented Hedi Slimane want to transmit, the designer of the brand through the spring/summer 2015 collection. I wouldn’t venture up to there and thus I prefer to mix pieces from the collection of the season in urban outfits, relaxed and nonchalant with a 60’s vibe.
