last weekend I was at the Marie Claire Fashion Days, and about a month before that I was at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and… I haven’t talked about any of them eversince.
Which is awkward.
But that’s life.
So since a “Marie Claire Fashion Days recap post” is still kind of in time, and there were designers from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week showed up there as well, I decided to kind of mix the two fashion events together and show you my favorite collections.
Which, don’t get me wrong, doesn’t mean that the other ones sucked or anything at all, but you know, it’s a personal blog so I feel like it’s okay to only share my personal favorites.
(És ha baromira nem érdekel ahogy angolul írok róluk, nyugodtan tessék csak rákattintani erre a linkre mert a Fashionfaven egy teljes cikken keresztül ecseteltem az összes magyar designer kollekcióját. Ja meg van ott egy csomó kép is. Meg van a Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weekről is egy cikk ottan arrafelé.)
Her newest collection brings us, Hungarian peeps, back to our time at lake Balaton when we were kids. (Some of us, not me, actually. I hadn’t been to Balaton until the age of 15.) It was also inspired by scout camps and basically, the sixties-seventies.
Honestly, I would have never guessed these sources of inspiration would ever work, but these pieces are so original and surprisingly adorable, I haven’t found any other collection that would look even similar.
The second I saw Pásztor Anna (apparently a popular singer) on the runway I was like “Who brought Lady Gaga here?” but then I realized, Sármán Nóra just made her the queen of this fairytale kingdom she created.
Flowy and slightly transparent materials beautifully fitting the models’ body, pastel shades from icy blue to peachy nude, it all looked and felt like it’s the foggy garden of a gorgeous medieval fairytale castle.
NUDE by NUBU
I don’t mean to sound self-conscious but it’s kind of obvious that Nubu found out what my “everyday style dream” would be and used that as an inspiration. Except the Karate Kid thing going on which is, by the way, surprisingly appealing, I guess this obi belt thing isn’t as terrible as I imagined it would be.
All the pieces scream comfy yet they are extremely chic, the color palette balances from white to black, with a hint of purple and cobalt blue (Yes!) sometimes combined with fabolous quilted materials and shiny fabrics.
And to show you more photos from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week…
Probably there’s something wrong with me (That’s actually not an assumption…) but as far as I’m concerned the Cukovy collection was all about futuristic lady-pirates.
Just… think about it.
The Zoe Phobic collection perfectly bounces back and forth between the fierce and confident woman and the easy-breezy, one-hundred percent feminin lady adding an extra hint of glamour.
I love how there is a twist, something exciting in every single item, in every single detail.
“I don’t like it.”
“What does it remind you of?”
“… a dentistry.”
“Exactly. No one likes dentistries.”
Maybe it’s because I really liked my dentist back when I was little, or I’m a hopeless mazochist, but despite this conversation with the guy next to me, this show was undoubtedly one of my favorites at MBFWCE.
By the way, the dresses were actually inspired by the architecture before the Second World War which means – spacious rooms and geometric figures.
Kind of crispy fabrics held together by ribbons, pastel colors to soften up the overall image.
And here are some more photos from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
