On Friday I have attended the most important fashion event called Fashion Infection [Mados Infekcija] in Vilnius. I have decided to make series of reviews about what I’ve seen and what I think of it.
This is the first part.
First to represent is designer Laura Dailideniene “Daili” and her fall/winter 2013/2014 collection “SAP”. This pret-a-porter collection in my oppinion is perfect for women, who love to keep it minimal, but yet conspicuous shape. The main collors of collection are green of natural moss, deep blue, light blue, black and white. I have noticed a perfect bag (you can see it on the 2nd and 3rd pictures) beeing taken through my eyes and dreamed about myself carrying it.
Have wonderful Sunday evening!

WILL SMITH – The power of personality or fame?

Posted on:

Will-Smith-Savoy-Well-Child.-noisettes

Backstage at the Savoy

I have never experienced this before, but what I experienced last night of Will Smith walk into a room and change an atmosphere like he did is  just incredible. Everyone stopped.

MSF went to WellChilds Charity Ball. I don’t know if you have ever been back stage for a big performance, but what goes on behind the scenes in order to deliver a  show to its audience, is just manic. Everyone works so hard to make it the best they possibly can. Last night was no different.  MTF was styling singers of Amore, photographers were ready in action to capture the celebrities, organizers were running around, and I was writing in the corner. I guess I got caught up in the moment, but I felt it intensely. At these events timing and precision is everything.

He caught our attention.

It happened in a matter of seconds, in shock, caught off guard and with no time to think, Will Smith walked into the room. It was as if he had walked straight off the set from Fresh Prince of Bellair and into backstage at the Savoy Hotel. If only I could describe what he brought with him. He had the same charisma as from the show. We all  followed. It was too exciting not to. He walked straight in, no notice of what had been going on, straight over to Shingai Shoniwa, singer from the Noisettes. Both excited to see each other, both loud, they instantly embraced each other. It was a great image, Will related to Shingai, showing up to see her perform.

What Will Smith wore

Will Smith was wearing jeans and a denim jacket, he definitely went for the comfortable look. Not the traditional black tie, but the denim tie-dye. His friend wore a stunning Blazer which looked absolutely fabulous. MSF says – a good, well fitted blazer styles up an outfit to look top-notch like anything. If you are going out and not sure what to wear, but you want to look smart, put on a blazer. Go, not for a plain Blazer, but for pattern or different materials and definitely go for  colour. Unfortunately  Will Smith’s body guard didn’t get that memo, he wore a terrible pair of baggy jeans and even an even more terrible grey T-shirt. Such a shame as everyone else had  managed to make effort.

Will Smith and Gracie

Gracie in her opulent fashion went unnoticed, as she too couldn’t resist getting in on part of the action. Will loved her dress. He said “I almost wore the same thing tonight. Lucky I didn’t, otherwise that could have got really embarrassing for both of us”. He sweetly gave Gracie a hug and he left with a MSF business card in hand.

The Next US President

Will Smith stayed for the whole performance of the Noisettes to see Shingai Shoniwa sing and Dan Smith Play on the guitar. He stood up on the chair to take pictures, he went to the front and took some more and got all the women dancing. He took part with everyone. There is personality and there is fame, Will Smith lit up the whole room. It is incredible how much power he has, that he takes him with his ability to really make everyone want to participate in what he is doing, and how he makes everyone feel great. There is no doubt that he is a very talented man. From unknown to Fresh Prince, to major movie star and singer. What’s to come next? Visiting a school yesterday in Brixton, perhaps the next President of the US. Who knows.

STEAL THE LOOK – AN ULTIMATE NORDIC SIMPLICITY

STEAL THE LOOK – AN ULTIMATE NORDIC SIMPLICITY

 

  •  

Have you ever been asked to describe a nation by the way it dresses? If you had, how did it go? From my personal experience, I admit that such a task usual isn’t easy. And most of the times not even accurate. It’s a human nature to use our experiences and knowledge describing the world around us. But if such experiences or knowledge does not exist, how can we describe things that surround us? Most of the time, we google, search or simply look into rumours and stereotypes which we’ve already heard or, in some cases, create new ones to prove our observations.

The Baltic – Nordic fashion and fashionistas are becoming louder, braver and better known globally. But let’s admit it, the old, sophisticated and glamorous planet of the Western European fashion is not as flexible in attitudes and perceptions, as the biannual collections by its designers shown each year in New YorkLondon, Paris and Milan. It took decades and lots of effort for Denmark to be placed onto a map of the international fashion weeks, but have you ever heard or seen anyone reviewing equally impressive shows in the Baltic region countries such as Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Poland and Germany? Probably not. Even if you did, such reviews started and finished with few images and one-liner about the entire collection.

Due to the lack of such knowledge and experiences, we tend to continue creating stereotypes about these countries, its designers and people’s sense of style. If Scandinavia is slightly and steadily emerging from the cloud of rumours, the rest of the countries are still drowning in the sea of miss-shaped perceptions, where everyone dresses in same colourless, unstylish, cheap clothes made few decades ago at an oldSoviet Union mass-produce factory (although, not a lot of difference between today’s Primark or even H&M, isn’t it?).

To change such perceptions and share some light on the creative industry and stylish people of the Baltics, we have decided to start a new blog entry – ‘Steal the Look’. The idea is to publish images with the Nordic – Baltic street styles, shaped by personal taste and glocal fashion trends, as well as help our readers to “steal” the look, showcasing similar garments and accessories, created by the Baltic designers.

Hope you will enjoy reading these articles, as well as finding some great inspirations, new designers from the eight stylist countries in the Northern part of the continent. And if you have an image or two to share – drop us a note at info@kristinagoeswest.com. We will be very happy to publish it here too.

I have come across this ethereal style picture, while browsing few Nordic street style blogs. The simplicity and effortlessly matched garments speak for itself. The double breast, military inspired coat is made a vocal point of the entire look. Finished with a grey loose cut, prolonged sleeves top and leather-like trousers, this look is a great look for a rock chick inspired office wear or a relaxed weekend stroll in the city.

To steal the look, we suggest this limited edition, military inspired ‘Black elements coat’ by Freak Factory(now £290.00 at kristinagoeswest.com)…

… matched with the comfortable and warm, three-tone ‘Sepia’ jeggings by DAILI (now £83.00 at kristinagoeswest.com), for those who want to inject some colour to their winter wardrobe.
