Paris Fashion Week: The 5 Spring 2010 Trends We Can’t Wait For!

1. LADYLIKE LEATHERS
Celine_spring_2010_leather_2_bluefly_blog_flypaper.jpgCeline_spring_2010_leather_bluefly_blog_flypaper.jpg
The return of ’80s fashion has meant the return of leather. For those of us who don’t want to look like a member of a biker gang, Celine spring 2010 cut black, and woody brown leathers into chic little dresses, sharp skirts, and t-shirts. LOVE.

2. SHEER KNITS
Louis_Vuitton_Paris_spring_2010_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpg
Tissue-thin knits started trending this spring, and next spring we are fully on board as they are perfect for wearing over the plethora of warm-weather prints even as they protect from air conditioner and evening chills. This one’s by Louis Vuitton.

3. PRINTED PANTYHOSE
Chanel_spring_2010_printed_tights_2_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpgChanel_spring_2010_printed_tights_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpg
At Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld paired his chic suits and whimsical frocks with hose featuring cool garter and espadrille lace prints. A classier take on the printed tight trend for the ladies-who-lunch set.

4. BIG FAT GIRLY FRILLS
Stella_McCartney_spring_2010_ruffles_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-400.JPG
From Valentino to Giambattista Valli to Commuun to Stella McCartney (pictured above on model Natalia Vodianova), over-the-top ruffles and tiers were all over the spring ’10 Paris runways. We can’t wait to pair a flouncy blouse/ruffled mini dress with a cropped leather tuxedo jacket, fedora, and ankle booties next spring.

5. DRESSED-DOWN EVENING WEAR
John_Galliano_spring_2010__bluefly_blog_flypaper.jpg
One of the major unifying themes of the spring 2010 collections has been a defiance of the precious, prissy girly-girl. Where there are ruffles and lace, there are leathers and studs. John Galliano carried that idea forward by presenting his line of ultra femme separates — sheer little dresses, swaying skirts — with floppy hats and oversized boyfriend jackets and vests. Love this look because it erases the barriers of what to wear for day and night. Suddenly everything can be worn anytime as long as you wear day and night together.

Milan Fashion Week: The 5 Spring 2010 Trends We Can’t Wait For!

1. RISQUE SWIMWEAR
Emporio_Armani_spring_2010_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpgEmilio_Pucci_spring_2010_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
Slashed fabric (see Emporio Armani, left) and strategic twists and ties (Emilio Pucci, right) made for some very sexy swimwear on the Milan runways. I wouldn’t recommend wearing these against bare flesh. Layer over a bright one-piece or bikini, slip on a pair of shorts and slides, throw a woven beach basket over your shoulder and dunzo. You’re THE hautest girl at the beach.
>Bluefly is your 365-day hook-up for designer swimwear starting at 30% off!
2. MATCHY MATCHY ACCESSORIES
Antonio_Marras_spring_2010_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.JPG
Antonio Marras showed models toting bags in prints taken from the jackets/skirts/dresses they were wearing. LOVED the idea of a bag for a specific outfit and also mixing it up by carrying the bag while wearing a clashing print — another trend that’s big for fall ’09 AND spring ’10.

>Get yourself some new shoes too!
3. LACE 2.0
Marni_Spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpg
Lace has been taken out of the attic, shaken out, and infused with cool in the spring ’10 shows. In London, Caroline Charles and Jasper Conran were among the designers who used the sometimes treacly fabric to create lush, luxe, and hipster looks. In Milan, Marni’s spring 2010 (pictured above) also featured a cool not-your-Grandma’s lace tunic dress. Slip this on (over a slip please), then step into a pair of espadrilles and you’ll be good to go next spring.

4. HIGHLY-CONSTRUCTED DRESSES
Aquilano_Rimondi_spring_2010_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpgLove_Sex_Money_spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.JPG
Every now and then a lady wants to feel wrapped up like the luxe gift that she is. Aquilano.Rimondi (left) and Love Sex Money (right) get that and created highly-constructed homages for their respective spring 2010 lines.
>Shop constructed, embroidered & embellished evening gowns

5. DIAPHANOUS DRESSES WITH ATTITUDE

Just_Cavalli_spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpgFendi_spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
Usually, sheer dresses are long, sexy, and floating in dreamy panels as a leggy model sashays down the runway, but for spring ’10, in keeping with the tough girl / edgy romance vibe of the season, Fendi presented this little white deconstructed dress, while Roberto Cavalli created this rough, ruffled, gently-tiered look for his diffusion line, Just Cavalli. Love it!

London Fashion Week: The 5 Spring 2010 Trends We Can’t Wait For!

1. GLAM TOURIST T-SHIRTS
Ashish_Spring_2010_ironic_graphic_prints_5_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpg
As in the kind of t-shirts you’d find in a tacky souvenir ship. Designer Ashish Gupta who says his signature is “Sequins, glamour, sportswear and more sequins,” turned out sequins graphic tee after sequins graphic tee, glamorizing the traditional tacky tee and referencing Nike too.

2. SUPER-COOL COAT DRESSES

Christopher Bailey, Creative Director for Burberrry Prorsum sent several incarnations of the coat dress down the runway — all of which we can’t wait to rock with ankle booties, square framed sunglasses, and wide brimmed sun visors next spring.
>Bluefly’s having a coat sale right THIS minute!
3. PRINTED SUITS
House_of_Holland_spring_2010_printed_suits_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpgJosh_Goot_spring_2010_printed_suit_2_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
Printed suits popped up at several spring 2010 shows in London including Fashion East, House of Holland (pictured left), and Josh Goot (pictured right). Digging them; cause you can rock the blazers separately with jeans or a solid colored dress, or you can pair together for a new statement on the ’80s power suit.

>Pair your blazer with one of these skirts
4. PSYCHEDELIC PRINTS
Mary_Katrantzou_spring_2010_psychedelic_prints_2_bluefly_blog_flypaper-crop.jpgMatthew_Williamson_spring_2010_psychedelic_prints_bluefly_blog_flypaper-crop.jpg
It was all about prints at the London shows and Josh Goot, Basso & Brooke, Mary Katrantzou (pictured left) and Matthew Williamson (right) went trippy with theirs sending acid-laced prints down the runway in eye popping dresses, statement jackets, and graphic trousers.
>Get yourself a graphic print dress
5. OMBRE MEN’S SUITS
Wintle_spring_2010_ombre_suit_for_men_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpg
Calvin Klein’s Italo Zucchelli played with ombre in his fall ’09 collection, laying different shades of grey over each other. This season, designer Jsen Wintle expanded on the idea creating ombre suits. Love the subtle yet fashion forward statement this suit makes.

NYC Fashion Week: The 10 Spring 2010 Trends We Can’t Wait For!

1. TRESSE SWIMSUITS
Rosa_Cha_braided_Tresse_Swimsuit_Spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
When we saw the tresse bikinis, monokinis, and one-piece swimsuits Alexandre Herchcovitch sent down the runway at Rosa Cha, all we could think about was how cool they would look with a pair of shorts or flared maxi skirt.
>Bluefly’s having an amazing sale on new swimsuits
2. SEXY BACKS
Max_Azria_spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpgThuy_Spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
Whether it was cut-outs on the backs of dresses at Max Axria, “vertebrae” running up the backs of dresses at Chado Ralph Rucci, or naked zippers at Thuy, the back was big this fashion week as designers did all they could to make editors, buyers, and ultimately customers, take a second look.

3. SLOUCHY T-SHIRT DRESSES

It’s your coolest t-shirt, longer! Max and Lubov Azria designed a few variations for their BCBGMaxAzria Spring 2010 line.
>Shop the t-shirts all the celebs are wearing

4. PRINTED DENIM
G-Star_Spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
The resurgence of the ’80s brought studded jeans, boyfriend jeans, and acid wash jeans back, and with their spring ’10, G-Star hopes to make printed denim a trend. Love this print on print suit.
>Bluefly has a killer denim collection
5. SEXY CAFTANS
Arise_Tiffany_Amber_Spring_2010_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpgCarlos_Miele_spring_2010_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
Muumuus usually conjure up frumpy images of Three’s Company’s, Mrs. Roper but Tiffany Amber, who showed her spring ’10 collection as part of the Arise Promise of Africa Group Show (see left), and Brasilian designer Carlos Miele updated this classic style by showing skin.
>Shop maxi dresses on Bluefly
6. SQUARE FRAME SUNGLASSES
Cynthia_Rowley_spring_2010_sunglasses_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
For spring/summer ’09, round sunglasses broke through as a hot sunglass trend, but the cool, oversized square frame shades Cynthia Rowley accessorized her spring ’10 line with may flip that trend.
>Shop square sunglasses on Bluefly
7. HIGH CUT SHORTS
Brian_Reyes_high_cut_t-shirt_shorts_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
Brian Reyes showed several different shorts in full and high-cuts, in cotton, jersey, seersucker, denim, sequins, and t-shirt material. LOVED the high-cuts in particular because paired with wedge heels, your legs’ll look model long.
>Shop shorts on Bluefly

8. PAINTERLY PRINTS

From Jackson Pollock-reminiscent splatter prints to dresses pieced together with multhued fabrics, we were loving the graphic prints that looked brushed on in several spring ’10 collections including Chado Ralph Rucci (right), Ohne Titel, and Toni Maticevski (left).
>Shop prints on Bluefly
9. PASTEL SUMMER SUITS FOR MEN
Michael_Kors_spring_2010_bluefly_blog_flypaper_pastel_men_suit-crop.jpg
The spring ’10 men’s shows featured tons of color in men’s suiting. Calvin Klein, Jean Paul Gaultier, C.P. Company, Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Moschino, and Paul Smith presented a spectrum of suits as did Michael Kors (pictured here) while Louis Vuitton paired dark suits with colorful shoes. I think the color adds a sharpness to the suit mainly because it takes a certain kind of swagger for a man to rock a pastel suit.
>Shop men’s suits
>We have Michael Kors goodies on sale
10. QUILTED LEATHER ANYTHING!
Alexander_Wang_spring_2010_bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpg
Ever since Rihanna rocked a quilted leather blazer on the season premiere of Jay Leno’s new primetime show, I’ve been keeping a close eye out for a quilted leather jacket, but now Alexander Wang has me drooling over quilted leather shorts. Perhaps it’s the Chanel association, but quilted leather anything just screams high-fashion luxe.

Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2010: Feeling It?

Tommy_Hilfiger_Spring_2010_look_1_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.jpgTommy_Hilfiger_Spring_2010_look_2_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpg
If there was any doubt the recession is ebbing, Tommy Hilfiger’s pre-show opening of his 5th Avenue flagship store erased it. Jammed with beautiful, and beautifully dressed, big name celebrities — Mary Louise Parker, Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley, and Russell Simmons, to name a few — servers passed lobster, caviar, and pigs-in-the-blanket on black trays, as suited hotties tended separate bars on all six floors of the store, and pushcarts of ice cold Peroni beers were stationed throughout the sprawling shopping destination.
The decadence followed in Hilfiger’s spring 2010 show. The Rat Pack-reminiscent, Guys and Dolls-evocative collection presented sleek column dresses, crisp Martha’s Vineyard-ready basics, collegiate blazers and khakis, and tuxedos. More of the same from the designer committed to a vision of classic and luxe Americana.

Trias Spring 2010: Feeling It?

Tria_Spring_2010_Look_1_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpgTrias_Spring_2010_Look_2_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper.jpg
According to his press notes, Joaquin Trias’ spring 2010 collection of stiff statement dresses, skirts, and shorts complete with conical tiers, and “shields” around the hips and waists were inspired by his grandmothers — one of whom was Frida Trias, the muse of none other than Cristobal Balenciaga. Conceived for women into fashion, not trends, it’s a line that only hardcore fashionistas can pull off.

Calvin Klein Spring 2010: Feeling It?

Calvin_Klein_Spring_2010_look_1_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.JPGCalvin_Klein_Spring_2010_look_2_Bluefly_blog_FlyPaper-crop.JPG
If you’ve ever asked/been asked: Where do you summer? Francisco Costa’s spring 2010 colection for Calvin Klein is all you! The pieces were airy in color and weight, a palette of white, slate, and tarmac with the odd pop of aqua, yellow, and ombre, with stripes of fabric forming patterns on the dresses. Completing the breezy collection of comfort clothes was the on-trend boyfriend jacket, and a slouchy trench.

Naeem Khan Spring 2010: Feeling It?

naeem_khan_blueflys_blog_flypaper_spring_2010.jpgI think it’s safe to say that Naeem Khan and his wife Ranjana who also presented are focused on the female form in its most ‘natural’ state, and jewels.
But, who can blame them really?
This season the Khans, opted for a presentation full of haughty attitude, haute frocks and statement bling. Models stood akimbo throughout the space wearing fierce expressions and vintage lingerie adorned with seriously intricate jeweled pieces created out of gold, stones, and antique metals. There were also sequined mini dresses.
It would appear that they wanted to dress both the faux mermaid, the party girl, and the pre-teen playing dress up.
Intriguing, wearable and most importantly fashionable…

Isaac Mizrahi Spring 2010: Feeling It?

isaac_mizrahi_spring_2010_blueflys_blog_flypaper.jpgHands down, Mizrahi had the most creative runway at the tents this season. Fabulously dressed ‘Ladies’ were driven around in golf carts with equally well dressed ‘Dandies’. A wonderful collection of subtly dazzling separates–sequin minis with matching waist skimming tops, cropped geo-shaped jackets paired with voluminous silk pants and painted on skirts completed by life-sized bows dangling from waistlines–were only upstaged by glorious gowns. The most unique theme throughout these gowns was an ‘inside-out’ effect. Black vintage lace was spilled on top of a rosebud print, while a ‘white slip’ with geometric patterns was layered over black satin to note a few.
The accessories consisted of stiff straw looking hats and equally stiff, mini suitcases and over-sized briefcases.
It appears that Mizarhi wants to outfit the every mood of the roaring 20′s and decadent 80′s working gal………
