FashionStreet Spotlight: Sao Paulo Fashion Week

 
I am a huge fan/follower of street style around the globe. I love discovering local flair and being able to be inspired by it and interpret it into my own wardrobe. So I thought it was about time we brought some more street style fashions to the Lulu*s blog so you ladies could be inspired just like me!

A couple weeks ago Brazil had it’s fashion week, and Facehunter, an awesome street style blog, caught some amazing fashion and flair from the patrons of the shows. Check out some of my favorite outfits below!

FashionBest of Pre-Fall 2012

Okay, so if you didn’t know, we just finished the pre-fall season for 2012. Below I  highlighted my 10 favorite collections from the pre-fall season, in no particular order. You can agree with me or not, it’s okay, it’s what make the world turn, you know? You can always comment with your thoughts (wink wink, nudge nudge). 
 




 


 

 



 
*So Chanel would totally make this list (it was one of my fav shows) but we already did a blog on it. So, don’t freak out, k?

InterviewsOutfit Inspiration: Practical Magic


When I was a pre-teen there was nothing more in the world I wanted to be than a witch. It was so cool, you guys. Then Practical Magic came along. It was a movie about sisters and witches?! Count me in. Me and my sister were (well, still are) inseparable, and this movie is the epitome of me and my sisters’ friendship and currently a fashion inspiration. Plus its about witches!
 

For me, Gilly was always the one I favored, especially outfit wise, probably because she is such a free spirit and I thought she was like me. But let us not forget the best part of this movie, character and fashionwise: Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest! Their love of ridciulously large hats and Stevie Nicks inspired duds, makes me strive to be like them even more. I hope to look at least 1/4 of how good they look when I’m their age! 
 
 
I am going to leave you guys with my favorite scene from this movie, which, by the way, I did recreate with my mom and sister as soon as I was legal!   

 

FashionPrada Presents: Il Palazzo. A Palace of Role Play

I know we normally talk about exclusively women clothes here at Lulu’s, but Miuccia Prada’s AW 2012 Menswear show was too good to pass up. Plus it allows me to report on menswear, which I love almost as much as womenswear. Almost. 
Prada exclaimed from backstage that this show was “A parody of male power.” She made sure nothing was as it appeared. The formal clothes were cut from denim, what appeared to be mohair was really cotton. The baroque patterns on the pieces are composed of football helmets or Native American headdresses. Each look more impressive than the next.

The piece de resistance came at the end of the show, when Miuccia paraded out actors. And not your Channing Tatum, chiseled abs type. No she brought out the strong brooding types. The award winning types (No offense, Channing, but, you know). From Emile Hirsch, to Jamie Bell, to Willem Dafoe, each played their part as the walked down the runway. 

Tim Blank, of Style.com, described it best:
“If you accept that actors play archetypes, then each of them represented a particular kind of man. It wasn’t only the accompanying soundtrack of Michael Nyman’s music from The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover that cued Tim Roth as a gangster or Adrien Brody as a dandy.”
Did yout enjoy this runway show as much as I did? Or are you like “eh” about menswear. Let me know! xoxo
