Ruban Spring Summer 2015

I am in love with the first image below! That is why I just had to share this Ruban Spring Summer 2015 Collection with you all dear readers!

Sisters Alisa & Julia Ruban started the label in 2010 after Alice wore some of her own pieces to Paris Fashion Week. She was captured by a street fashion photographer wearing her signature design leather top. Since then Stella McCartney has referenced their work as inspiration while shooting in her studio for The New York Times Magazine. Former editor in chief of VOGUE France, Carine Roitfeld, wrote about RUBAN for her CR Fashion Book and American Marie Claire listed the Ruban sisters among the top Russian fashion designers.

Their Spring Summer 2015 Collection is inspired by the 19th Century, Catherine de 'Medici, Corsets, laces and waist circumferences of 33 inches. You couldn't breathe in this attire and it was not easy to move around either. However the Ruban collection that you can see in the photos below no longer serves to chain a girl down. The corset laces are light, airy and function as major design features. These laces turn a mini dress into a maxi too! The fabrics are lovely and light - the sisters have used a lot of transparent silk. The colour scheme, with the exception of my favourite red look, is light and lady-like also and the ruffles (see photo 5) create looks that appear to float down the runway. I also really love the makeup and the flower motifs that appear on the model's foreheads as well - they complete the overall runway look.

Which is your favourite look from the show below? Comment at the end of the post - I love to hear from you all!

The Coolest Beauty Trends

Beauty Look by NARS Spring Summer 2015

When you look at the photo below you can see a whole host of great beauty trends that were popular on the Spring Summer 2015 Runway. Interesting nails were in and NARS has created a rainbow nail look that matches the colourful highlights they have added to this models hair. I love the glitter slicked side which is a far better alternative to the shaved side of the head look that has been in fashion lately. (By the way have I mentioned I am not a fan of the shaved side of the head look?) I am also a big fan of these bold royal blue eyes highlighted with white. Your eye is immediately drawn to the models eyes and then her nails.

Messy Nails

Try a hint of colour with a few find brushstrokes or nail pen swipes (below left). How about a messy marble look with a transparent white base and your choice of colour over the top. OR my favourite - a nail stain! The stain will wear really well (below right).

Eyebrow Rings

This trend is not for the feint hearted and may need a bit of thought before you try it yourself. However this look is sure to turn heads!

Gold Glitter Lids

By far the easiest beauty trend from Spring Summer 2015 AND one that is surprisingly effective. Just use pick up a little Vaseline on a finger tip, press into gold (or another colour) glitter and press your finger tip on closed eyes! Done!

Liquid Liner Shapes

There were so many interesting ways to use liquid eyeliner and mascara on eyelids at the Spring Summer 2015 RTW shows. The shot below from Giamba's Spring Summer 2015 is my favourite though - the trend has been dubbed floating eyeliner! Are you a dab hand with liquid eyeliner? Try the trend below yourself!

Eat Me; Candy Alphabet

By Italian Artist Massimo Gammacurta

Just a quick post today to share these amazing sugar creations by Italian artist Massimo Gammacurta. They are almost too good to eat. However I also think that the high res close up photographs below are pretty amazing too. Since I am not a lolly person I would be happy enough to stand in front of huge printed versions of these too. The colours merge into one another and the wonderful bubbles and highlights are quite amazing!

Are you a lolly person? Would you tuck into one of these? Comment at the end of the post!
