CLOGGING SPRING RUNWAYS AROUND THE WORLD! 

ALL BUTTONED UP AT GUCCI Spring 2015 is bringing a refreshing return to more straight forward clogs!  At one point in 2010,11, & 12 it seemed like designers were throwing everything but the kitchen sink into their shoe designs. PALE BLUE DENIM PATCHWORK   PLATFORM IN PINK AT BALLY The clean palette walking runways this year in NY, Milan, & Paris is retro and modern at the same time.  Spring 2015 is all about the 70's.. not so much bell-bottoms (a few) and lava lamps.. but jumpsuits, suede dusters, clogs, and platform shoes of all kinds are right on! PLATFORM CLOGS FROM THE UK -MULBERRY Take a look at all the references from the 1970's - many had been retooled looks from the 30's and 40's.  Perhaps it's no mystery that in 2015 once again these styles seem fresh, clean, and new.   #CLOGSPEASANT POETS AT CHLOE - SPRING 2015

At Chloe, a key looks was the peasant blouse, dark denim, and flats. 

At Salvatore Ferragamo, the look was inspired by archive pieces that Salvatore himself designed in the 1930's.  It was Ferragamo who is credited with creating many of the styles that are classics today.  Actually, Salvatore Ferragamo was the first designer to create a designer "brand" of creating custom shoes for Hollywood starlets in the 1920's.   Amazing.MORE 40'S THAN 70'S AT PRADA

Wooden clogs brought serious 70's style at Mulberry, Bally, Prada, and Rosetta Getty.

At Louis vuitton, the denim trend continued but washed with Vuitton charm heels. 

Suede dresses and dusters, camera bags, and sandals killed it at Gucci.

These looks all make strong statements when worn head-to-toe, but all can be worked into any fashionable wardrobe as an item. SALVATORE FERRAGAMO - NEW "RAINBOW" WEDGE PLATFORM SLIDE  What's your favorite look?  clogs?STELLA McCARTNEY PLATFORM HEEL FAUX LEATHER  Earth-tone Suede?

Choose a look and swing into the 70's vibe.. it looks like these styles will be in Vogue for several seasons.

MADONNA'S BACK, AND SHE'S PISSED.... #REBEL HEART 

MADONNA'S 13TH STUDIO ALBUM - REBEL HEARTGird You Loins!  MADONNA is back, and she is not happy.   The Queen of pop ended the year with 6 tracks from her soon to be released album - REBEL HEART, being leaked on the internet.  Getting ahead of the hack, within the week Madonna released the first six tracks immediately for anyone who pre-ordered the full album (her 13th studio offering) to be released in March.

No doubt, the leak made Madonna less than happy..(actually she made that clear on every social media account she has). 

Add this to the fact that at least half of the new tracks tell tales of a broken hearted woman getting over burned by her guy, getting on after dumping her boyfriend.  Think Taylor Swift on Nicki Minaj.

The queen of social media has been tweeting, posting, and gramming #UnapologeticBitch, #BitchImMadonna, and #RebelHeart for months - so we knew those would probably be songs.    Ballads have always been a strong suit of Madonna's catalog and her Ghosttown is a beautiful example.  To read more and listen to tracks - click - REBEL HEART

WRAP UP FALL 2014 LIKE A CAPED CRUSADER

VALENTINO OFFERS ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL, YET MOST TRADITIONAL CAPE OPTIONS FOR FALL 2014. PRICED AT $16,500 - IT IS ALSO ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE.When you start to notice seasonal changes in the weather (no matter where you live), you can usually count on two things.   Fashion boutiques will be start receiving great outerwear options, and another Hollywood blockbuster about a superhero is being released - or in the works.  Let's talk blockbuster.   One of the most iconic men in tights the world has ever known - Batman will be back on the big screen in 2016, in yet another reboot of the cash cow series based on the Character created in 1939 by Bill Finger and Bob Cane. BURBERRY WOOL & CASHMERE PONCHO - MONOGRAMMABLE - $1,600.00  Owned by DC Comics, Batman - originally known as the Bat-Man will nex be brought to life by Oscar winning actor Ben Affleck in "Batman Vs. Superman : Dawn of Justice".   Evidently the movie will star not one, but TWO larger than life superheros that wear capes when they want to be taken seriously.  Did somebody say capes?SALVATORE FERRAGAMO WOOL / ALPACA PLAID CAPE - $2,990.00 - AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT FERRAGAMO BOUTIQUES

The Fall fashion collections from Paris and Florence were flipping and flying with capes, wraps, and kimono like ponchos more than any season in recent memory.   While capes for women have been associated in the past with images more like Little Red Riding Hood or Girl Scouts - the offerings for the Winter of 2014/15 are not your little sisters, or your grand-mothers capes. ASYMMETRICAL SHAPE OF THE FERRAGAMO CAPE  As outerwear options become major parts of a woman's ensemble - a sophisticated cape is a wise investment.  Ferragamo, Burberry, Valentino, Bally, and many more runway collections were right on the trend for Fall 2014.

Three reasons you need a cape in your closet.   1 - Cape Coats are a great option for transitional  seasons from Fall to Winter and from Winter to Spring - which can be months at a time.  2 - these cape / ponchos travel really well, making them easy to layer up or down when unexpected weather arrives when you are away. 3 - possibly the most relevant reason - Capes and Ponchos FLATTER almost any figure.  In fact, they are a great friend to women who are larger than a 10 or 12.   For decades larger women have been all but shut out of designer fashion due to limited sizing offered to ladies with curves. WOOL / MOHAIR CAVALLI CAPE - $2,270.00   These Ponchos and Capes - even when labelled a true size BALLY WOOL CAPE WITH LEATHER TRIM - AS FEATURED IN THE FALL 2014 CAMPAIGN - $1,695.00 - AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY IN BALLY BOUTIQUES- can be worn by women several sizes larger - depending on the style / color / cut.

Take a look at these options that jumped off the runways at me.  They can all be staples in your wardrobe for years to come.
