Streetstyle at Madrid Fashion Week

Madrid`s fashion scene is not just evident on the catwalk, the outside streets are turned into a catwalk as well. I spotted David, 27 years old design student. Nice smile and cute style!

Spotlight on for designer duo Alvarno

Last Thursday 15/09 at Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week, we felt in Love with the spanish/french label Alvarno. The presentation took place Off-Cibeles in 'Museo Del Traje' (Museum of costume). We were very excited to take a look at the new collection for spring/summer 2012. The label Alvarno represents two designers, Arnaud Maillard who worked 15 years with Karl Lagerfeld and Alvaro Castejón who worked with Oscar de la Renta and for Alexander Mc Queen in London, New York and Paris.

The new collection by Alvarno shows us a woman who is self-confident and has a sexy touch. They use summer tweeds, light silks and XXL complements in form of belt, bracelet or necklace. The colors black, white and nude form a contrast in each look. The detail which catched our eyes were the low-cut backs in some pieces. We would really like to know your opinion about this collection!
Have a lovely Tuesday!

Congrats!!! London world´s top fashion capital of 2011

London is vivid, fresh, wild, innovative, inspiring... London is just awesome, London is incomparable!!!
There are not enough words to describe this northern Europe capital as it deserves. Neither I can`t explain why I love this city. Weather is bad, its almost rainy and cold but there is the people, the unique sub-culture, the street style, the markets and at least Pippa and Kate as new global "fashion icons". If you have ever been in London, you know what I am talking about! One afternoon, a few weeks ago, I asked some stranger at Oxford Street: " Why London?" and he answered: " London is an eye candy for the style hungry!" He`s so right! Couldn´t have said it better! No surprise that London is the world`s top fashion capital 2011. Our congratulations!!!

"We should take the news that London has been declared the world’s top fashion capital of 2011 as a giant fillip to national pride. The tally came from Global Language Monitor, a body in Texas which ranks cities on the basis of how often they’ve been mentioned on websites, blogs, Twitter and other social media. London came first, beating New York, Paris and Milan, in that order."
