Botanical Resort

Miss Moss: Botanical Resort. Colour Mash Ups of Resort 2016 x Vintage Botanical Illustrations

this post all started with a dress. well, actually... it all started when i was ploughing through hundreds of photos of the Resort 2016 collections. but that’s not such a great intro, is it? truth be told i’m kind of lost when it comes to “the shows”. i might see one frequently popping up on my feeds (this year it’s been Gucci and Dior – but purely because of the venue) and then i cautiously dip my toes into a veritable ocean of fashion, which can be an overwhelming ordeal for even the seasoned blogger. and my main aim is how to show you what i think is cool, without it being, well, boring. so how do i do that? the best way i know how:  a colour comparison.

The Art of Valentino

Miss Moss: Valentino Colour Comparisons

sometimes i like to imagine that Valentino create collections just for me. i picture the entire creative team sitting in their studio in Milan, saying – “you know, Diana hasn’t done a colour comparison in a while – things are looking a bit bleak over there. should we give her some inspiration? let’s throw everything we have at her! floral prints, landscapes, Ndebele, the GALAXY… she’s gonna LOVE this.” yep.

Drama on the Streets

Miss Moss // Drama on the Streets

i felt like these deserved a re-post! you see, i have been going through my archives and i rediscovered these Period Drama vs Street Style colour comparisons that I did way back in 2011 for Hila (you can see the original posts here and here). i never actually posted them all here so i thought i’d share. and, damn, i did pretty well if i do say so myself! Hila and I share a great appreciation for period dramas, she even wrote a book about screen adaptations of classic literature. she also wrote this marvellous post for me in 2012 about the locations of some of her favourite period films.

Dulce Dolce

out of all the fashion weeks i find Milan to be the most fun – mostly because of my ever favourite italian design houses Marni, Prada and Missoni… but this year my favourite FAVOURITE favourite collection by far, ever, possibly in the history of all fashion weeks, was Dolce & Gabbana. which surprises no one more than myself because i’ve never been a big D&G fan.

Mara & Maria

i had a bit of a scare this weekend, the blog was down for more almost two days and i didn’t know how to fix it. it’s terrible feeling so helpless, but above all i was really worried that three years of fun and radness was going to disappear forever into the depths of the internet blackhole. luckily Jason came to my rescue – a guy who knows his web stuff, so if you ever need help in that department give him a call.
