Belle Sauvage Autumn Winter Collection 2013
It is true the everyone remembers the first love or the first kiss. In Belle Sauvage 's case, it has been my first ever fashion show and I will remember forever. So I was quite happy to see this fantastic fashion couple's new collection. Gothic and baroque and Renaissance are the inspiration for this season. The patterns are very rich, reminding me of tapestries hanging in medieval castles. The colours used are red, purples, black while fabrics range from crepes, wool, taffetas and jaquards. The style is quite tailored with pencil skirts, blazers and dresses. The print of the Tigers against the Dragons give that hint of Far East look seen as well on make up and hairstyle for the models.
Virginia Ferreira and Chris Neuman are behind the label Belle Sauvage and now they've got a huge following thanks to their collections, always wearable and the prints that are a signature for the brand.
This fur cape in purple is gorgeous and match perfectly the outfit. We need colours during the cold, dull winter months and Belle Sauvage collection gives us just what we need, colours.
Dresses became my new staple. This one for example would be perfect with thick tights, maybe in some colour that could recall one in the print. Or it can be worn as a tunic over a pair of denim or black leggings. And in the summer, ditching the fur collar is perfect on its own.
