Spotting designers is not always an easy thing to do… Unless they have big logos or their name printed on their clothes, you can’t always know which brand is that specific item from… However, some are easy to spot because of their style or the pattern they use… For example Diane Von Furstenberg, Versace and Roberto Cavalli are easy to recognize… So what about Alaia! Well each of his collections always have that little artistic touch, that points you towards thinking “it is” an Azzedine Alaia garment. His clothes are always so well tailored and are real pieces of art. This season Alaia is all about details, broderie, perforation techniques and cage style effects!

Thin, Think, Leather, Stretch, Chain… Belts come in such a big variety… that it’s not always easy to identify which one to wear when! To give your waist a better shape and show some curves… it’s usually best to go for a wide and stretchy belt! But if it’s just to add a touch of femininity to your silhouette, thin belts usually do a better job, especially on dresses… Big buckles are great with lower waist jeans and a simple T- Shirt… But once again: you know what suits you best!
