I know that an ideal blogger would probably just include in an random post that they would be interning this summer. But HECK! this is my blog! So I am actually giving it a whole post.
I have got a writing internship with this really cool site called emcBlue. I would be interning with college undergraduates and the site is based in New Jersey. I wanted to intern as a writer as first instead of going into Public Relations or something because writing is actually what I want to do at the end of the day. Also, I am not very good with people. My summer break started and my friends got all teary-eyed and went on going on about how they will miss each other and went on hugging each other and tryed to hug me (I hate hugging people) But I was all screaming about how I am going ‘ home, bitches!’ and then started singing No Such Thing by John Mayer at the top of my voice. My friends seemed pretty miffed. Oh, well.
Back to interning.
So the internship is an online gig where I will be interning from this Sunday till the end of August and I will be required to write three blog posts per week for the site under fashion. Also I have been rambling about Faebric for quite sometime. I will also join the site officially as one of the contributors/editors (do we have to give it a name?!) . I have also been working with High School Pieces so I will be pretty much filled up this summer. I am also going to take up a sport again (I used to play soccer but there was to much of studying in ninth grade so I had to leave it). And I have my piano lessons lined up (I left it midway. Read above reason) So my poor blog is not left with a lot of time. No worries!
To Burberry now. They launched their new campaign called Burberry April Showers. See, Burberry has a style. I mean whenever I see their collection, I know that it is Burberry before it is even mentioned. Their iconic trenches, the rain, the umbrellas and the bags epitomized their collection this April.
It seems as if Christopher Bailey always reads my mind. The ad features the Burberry regulars- Cara Delevingne and Sebastian Brice and it is photographed by Jacob Sutton.
There is also this new advertisement by Yves Saint Laurent where they have commissioned with Black Swan’s director Darren Aronofsky. The ad is so meticulously detailed that it makes me watch it again and again. It has that certain seductive appeal and it is French. Well, French sums it all up.
2010 was an exciting year for fashion. It approached many different trends and also trends famous long back and redacted it. While Chanel did a little country segment back in Paris, there was a lot of pretty ‘bare-it-all’ in Michael Kors and Hussein Chalayan collections. Fall brought a breath of fresh air when Louis Vuiton brought a little 50s twist with bold midi length skirts. There was a lot of vintage in the air with adaptation not only from the 20th century but also beyond. An excerpt from the old Chinese red silk to the exquisite Egyptian gold here are those timeless hues in your wardrobe of 2010.
Camel is a color which is ageless, classic and timeless. It was introduced by Chloe and then was used by every major designer like Maxamara and the less expected, Yves Saint Laurent. Prada’s Miuccia showed camel patent leather two pieces that screamed 70′s in a modern way that only she could do. Stella McCartney, Gucci, Dries and Michael Kors too paid homage to the most decadent neutral of the season. Timing, they say, is everything. A trend back in the 50s and 70s has materialized in the 21st century of minimalism.
Red– the signature color of Valentino– gained more momentum when it became quite a star shade past year. Red was a prevailing color and was touched by designers like Giambattista Valli, Jean Paul Gaultier, Michael Kors and even Yves Saint Laurent in their pre-fall collections. It symbolizes attitude, passion as well as elegance and that is why it can be experimented by Vivienne Westwood and Balenciaga at the same time. The experimental trend of 20s and 40s is back on the pages of all.
Burnishing golden got an ageless label when people like Cameron Diaz, Chanel Iman and Sigourney Weaver wore it the same season. It has gained more popularity in the red carpet and on runway last summer. It is more flattering on skin and is thus ageless. This jewel tone is effortlessly beautiful and bold.
The onset of the color actually started in 2009 when everyone labeled nude as the Spring White. The great tranquilizer was used by Donna Karen in her spring/Summer 2010 collection which screamed newness and comprised of soft skirtsuits and body loving draped dresses. Fendi gave it Parisian style; Givenchy added ruffles while Burberry used it with a little twist of putting this color on fur. It got worldwide recognition when it featured on Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire to name a few.
