I'm back Sequin Visioners! I wanted to post about my Eurotrip to give way to the newly revamped blog, but first I want to share with you a really lovely bloggers lunch I was invited to a couple of days ago at Sophie's in Saks Fifth Avenue at the Mall of San Juan. The event was the first of a series of monthly trunk shows called Bubbles, Food, and Fashion, and there I was able to taste the delicious menu Executive Chef Ivonne Martínez prepared especially for the occasion along with a glass of Veuve Cliquot. All the bloggers there also had the chance to take a first look at the new Fall collections and the debut of the Fall 2015 Magalog, the biggest issue to date at 272 pages.
The Fall 2015 Women's Trends and Key Items presented were: Extreme Texture, which included artistic furs, fabulous faux and supple shearings, feathery fabrications, and exaggerated knit cables; and La Bohème, basically a luxed-up vision of the Bohemian life through plush velvet, vibrant colors, unique patchworks, trousers, and of course fringe. For the Men's: Country Gentleman, effortless updates to classic styles with subtle hints of rustic charm and Bohemian swagger; City Shadows, a sleek modern uniform for the worldly man with clean lines and moody greys; and Urban Couture, high contrast graphics and aggressive geometrics on everything from sneakers to outerwear to everyday street style. All of these trends are highlighted in the beautiful editorials of the Magalog, which were shot in the rich landscapes and historic chateaus of Scotland. The look I wore to the event coincidentally goes with the La Bohème trend with the fringe and tribal patterns, and I finally got to use this great midi skirt to give it a more luxe touch. I hope you enjoy all the looks and use the inspiration to get ready for fall.
