Denim Jacket Trend

It’s april now and this is the perfect season to wear the denim jacket!

This item remind me of the 80’s and 90’s!

I remember when I was a teenager… me and all my friends wore jean jacket.

To be honest, I haven’t wore it since my high school’s year but now I’m hunting for a nice denim jacket!

I like this trend, this kind of jacket is easy to wear with most things.

 

Now in London there are sunny days and if you have a look around the streets, you can see many girls wearing this garment.

Below there are my favorite denim jackets that you can easily find in London:

The news is that the tulle skirt is back and it is a must-have in the spring wardrobe!

It’s not necessary to be a prima ballerina to wear it, of course!

This trend is versatile and you can wear it with everything, in ultra-feminine or casual version.

Pantone Color Of The Year

One month ago I went to Mode information in Eastgate Street.

It was very interesting too see many books, like Next Look, ColoRush, WeAr, Accessori, Showdetails, that influence designers.

But I had also the opportunity to know something about Pantone and the important role that it has worldwide.

Pantone is the global authority on color.

It inspiring artists, designers and stylists to color the world.

The Pantone color of the year 2014 is “Radiant Orchid 18-3224“.

The executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, said about it: “Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination. An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

I really enjoy looking on Pinterest some board about it.

BURBERRY: REGENT STREET’S FLAGSHIP

Immagine

Few days ago I went to the Burberry’s flagship situated in Regent Street. It is the biggest Burberry store in the world. It is designed to reflect its website.

The whole area is circular and has galleries where customers can look down at the middle of the shop panorama when they are at the first floor.

The floors reflects the “Burberry Pyramid”: “Brit”, “London” and “Prorsum”. Indeed, the store brings the digital world in the physical space.

The amazing surprise is when an item is selected to try on in one of the fitting rooms. Each garment has an RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) tag inside, through which it appears on the mirror in the fitting room as the customer enters.

The customer can know the materials and the possible combinations with other Burberry items.

There are also several messages for the customers through screens, audiovisual experiences, live streaming of catwalks directly to flagship stores, streaming of shows in 3D technology.
