Maritime summer.... Once again
Memories of summer – the sound of the waves, the taste of the salt, the warmth of the sun – we always long for their return.
And while we wait for summer, we can dress in maritime style for a sense of sunny days and sea air.
Maritime designs are again an essential part of this year’s fashion trends. It’s a timeless look that we at REDGREEN love and that we see summer after summer after summer...
Beauties of the Sea.
Urban mermaid: style from the sea.
Walt Disney’s fairytales made mermaids, oysters, pearls and glitter seem whimsical; but the fashion crowd have claimed the look and given it an urban edge in 2012. From Chanel's pearl-encrusted looks to Givenchy's urban sirens, the mermaid as fashion icon gets fresher, cleaner, and a little sexier for spring.
See more beauties of the sea here!
Spotted recently on the French catwalk, are these rather convinient outfits. Okay, we have an obsession with almost any maritime designs, but this makes no sense! We thought that fashion was all about highlighting the feminine curves. But a smile are put onto our faces, and we are ready to take off for a lovely end of the week.
LONDON FASHION WEEK
London Fashion Week is fast approaching - actually this Friday its on! That gives you exactly two days and loads of minutes to get clued up on who's who of designers, frontrow faces and the 'it' crowd.
And all though London Fashion Week has been deemed by naysayers as the red-headed stepchild of the fashion calendar, this season's schedule seems to deliver everything we could ask for. Below of course, a handful of our favorite moments of cool London-style.

THE CLASSIC TRENCH FOR MEN

Stylish, noble and flattering for every shape. With a touch of classic Hollywood yet always up to date, the trench coat never looses its cool. Go for camel, grey, blue or black.
Fashion, Ahoy! The nautical look in the world of fashion.
A stripy top or an officer’s jacket: who doesn’t have one in their wardrobe? Many fashion designers, including Chanel and Gaultier, draw inspiration from elements of sailor’s and captain’s uniforms.
The fashion exhibition ‘Fashion, Ahoy!’ offers an overview of international haute couture and prêt-à-porter from Paris and London. Leading designs from fashion houses including Dior, Gaultier, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Kenzo, Rykiel, Castelbajac, Westwood and home-grown Dutch designers such as Viktor & Rolf, Francisco van Bentum, Jeroen van Tuyl and Marlies Dekkers have been brought together in an exhibition that is the first of its kind in the Netherlands.
Highlights of the exhibition also include the first sailor’s suit worn by the young English Prince of Wales, on display for the first time, and the uniform belonging to HRH Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange, in his rank as commodore of the Royal Netherlands Navy.
The fashion exhibition will be open to visitors from 25 September to 13 March 2011
