Jewel layering, arm party, jewel colony, arm swag, bling crowning.  You name it.  And as long as you stack half your jewellery box on one hand, you’ve got one of the biggest accessory trends this year (and last year too).  What’s cooler than accessorizing your outfit with fun, colorful bangles and bracelets without worries that someone could find it “too much”?  Be inspired and get on with the trend cause now’s the season to be extravagant.

The magic touch of Madame Grès

12 Dec

by Marjan Schrooten//

How about this for a pre-festive treat: ‘Madame Grès – Sulptural Fashion’ at the Antwerp Fashion Museum (MoMu); all you need is a ticket to Antwerp and another one for the exhibition (€8, that’s the price two freddo cappuccinos or a glass of bubbly) and whoops, there it is!
This inspiring exhibition shows the work of the Parisian couturière Madame Grès (1903–1993), who considered herself as much a sculptor as a fashion designer: ‘I would have like to have been a sculptor. Working with stone or fabrics is really rather the same for me.’ She was a real master-draper, draping her designs straight onto the model, without using the scissors or needle too much, which made her the pioneer of seamless clothing. None other than Madame Kelly, Piaff, Dietrich and Kennedy belonged to her privileged circle of clients. The soothing yet sleek interior design of the exhibition, the work of Belgian artist Renato Nicolodi, leaves room for the beautiful creations to breathe and stand out on their own, while discretely communicating with the more recent designs by Madame Grès-inspired fashion artists such as Alber Elbas (Lanvin) Yohji Yamamoto, Haider Ackermann and Jean Paul Gaultier. Silk jersey would have been nowhere without the magical touch of Madame Grès.
