Embellished Tops and Bishop Sleeves at Tory Burch

Presented off site in what looked like a hotel ballroom, glamorous looks were definitely expected, whether it is colour saturated or basic black.  It’s always best when designers don’t over-do the black for their fall/winter lines, and this was definitely the case with Tory Burch. While there is black in the collection (there has to […]

A Look at the Joe Fresh Spring 2013 Collection

Recently, DelectablyChic! was invited to preview Joe Fresh’s upcoming collection, including pieces that were not shown on the runway during World MasterCard Fashion week.  Sticking with the Joe Fresh style, next season is NOT without colour.  With shades ranging from magenta to a creamy orange (orange is Joe’s signature colour, after all) as well as […]

Twists on Classics: Kale Caesar Salad at Lola’s Kitchen

There are those who believe that classics should remain classics and no one should make changes to them, especially when it comes to food.  If done carefully enough, twists can be a good thing, especially if it is properly named (i.e. not like the Brad Pitt Chanel ad I discussed yesterday).  In fact, I think […]

Beautiful Blues and Oranges Dominate Milly for Spring

Bold colours are back and Milly‘s Spring/Summer 2012 collection is not without them.  With gorgeous dresses, trenches and separates, the pieces evoke every bit of elegant-yet-young-looking vibe that Milly is known for dominated in blue and orange tones with hints of lime green and specks of gold and of course, the requisite summer white.  These […]

A Fresh New Summer Salad!

I have a particular fondness for good salads. Salads are not just for the health conscious, they are a blank canvas to showcase any flavour combinations you like. The best salads combine a variety of colours, flavours, and textures. The more colourful and textured a salad is, the more interesting it becomes! My mixed green […]

LFW: Mulberry’s Going to the Country

With blacks and olives as the dominant shades as well as sparks of green and lavendar here and there, Mulberry’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, presented with a backdrop of shrubs, certainly looked like it was inspired by the English countryside.  Many of the looks even felt like nature, with its dark, mossy tones and flowing fabrics.  […]

Earthy Green Woodstock Chic and Glitter at Anna Sui

Cynthia Cheng Mintz Anna Sui‘s Fall/Winter 2011 collection says several things, including Woodstock Chic and shimerly shine.  From hippie-inspired tunics, peasant blouses, eastern-inspired tops and wide-legged pants modelled by girls with very long, straight hair to dresses with shiny fabric, there were also pops of old world glamour with light, creamy furs.  Of course, the bohemian look is not unfamilliar […]

Dark, Shiny and Plain for Vivienne Tam’s Fall/Winter 2011 Collection

Cynthia Cheng Mintz While many designers are emphasizing colour for Fall/Winter 2011, Vivienne Tam decided to stick with what traditionally works best – plain darks.  Her show opened with a dark runway, with the first few models wearing dark colours such as greys/blacks, especially for pants and skirts.  Tops were a little more varied, with some […]

Cynthia Rowley Goes Green With Longer Skirt Lengths

Cynthia Cheng Mintz At Cynthia Rowley’s show Friday, green was definitely not absent.  Half of her collection for Fall/Winter 2011 had at least some elements of the colour.  In addition, many of the pieces truly had a cold weather vibe to it, as it appeared to be made from velvet from the perspective of an […]

Luca Luca: Elegant and Definitely Wearable for All

Cynthia Cheng Mintz One of the other shows livestreaming from New York Fashion Week was Luca Luca, a line that describes itself as a “high fashion women’s luxury lifestyle brand.” The show today definitely lived up to the standard.  Instead of being funky like many lines try to be, they were staying with their Euro Chic […]
