Bazaar Report aw08 - Part 1

I always find January and July very exciting. Not only there are sales everywhere, it is also the start of the new season. Particularly, I love the fashion magazines in July. Actually, I should say all the August issues. They are always 1 month in advance, right? I've just got my Harper's Bazaar - one of the best issues this year! So, I will try to update their Key Look Reports in the following posts for all of you who haven't got British Harper's available :)

I love Fierce Chic! The rock chic look goes more glamorous and sophisticated this autumn! The make-up and outfit are simply together and mysterious.

The belt-up look is my long-time favourite, since I got a vintage fur scarf from my mum. For me, this is the best way to wear it for a more day look - a new modern classic! I will carry on this winter.

I'm always a round-toe shoe girl, but I can feel pointed-toe is coming back this winter in a more dressy and sexy way... Then, I'm looking for a romantic pair, maybe I will get a pair of almond-toe platforms... yummy!

Photobucket

The structured silhouette is just amazing! It gives power into our winter outfit! I love both my slim trousers for a super long-leg sleek look and also my volume ones for my figure hugging cashmeres. Marc Jacobs has just created this perfect silhouette for Louis Vuitton. Girls, all we need is some simple clean make-up and a good wallet :)

It is great to get a sneak peek at these when I am all the way on the other side of the world. I particularly love the Balenciaga styled look at the bottom left of the last page. What is your take on these trends and your prediction for the hits to come?

Paris Tarts said...

My jaw dropped on the suade white shoes on the last page! Wow!

Bazaar is my favorite magazine. That's my dream magazine to work at!

I am particularly excited about fall08. So many collections really came out with a big bang. Most notably Ricardo Tisco for Givenchy whom you seen on my blog has created such a phenominal line not only for RTW but Couture as well. I am also in love with Frida's nouveau hippie appeal for Gucci and also am a little fixated on LV's sculpted pumps, which are a bit reminiscent of Balenciaga's 06 harness boots, but I still love them. Amazing post, I can't get enough of fall fashion.

Oooo thanks for sharing! Usually the British Bazaar is $8-10 here in the states. I usually cave and buy it (because it is worth it ;), but thanks for the cheaper sneak!

Thanks for sharing this!!! I think fierce chic might be a little hard to pull off for me. The shoes are amazing.

Mikkle said...

wow! these pages from HB are amazing and inspiring! can't wait to see your takes on some of these trends! oh and i used to live in little downham outside of ely. we would visit some good friends in the summer out past the strawberry place and would stop on the way home and always take some back to eat with clotted cream :) i lived there for 4 years while my dad was stationed at lakenheath. its been far too long since i've been back!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi times of glory-I love Elle and Vogue, but Bazaar is a fave too, I think I will get this copy-thanks for the inspiration!!

Nay'Chelle said...

angelgrotton said...

Love the shoes ))) Great ))

Hugs from Angel and thanks for this useful and important info )))

stilettostetico said...

Fashion mags "from UK" have always a particular "creative touch" . . .
Mmmh Mmmh So "a (subtle) round-toe shoe girl" against "pointy Arrogance" !!! Eeeuhh . . . "almond-toe", I don't understand (the literal french translation is "amande", the fruit ) . . . If you could enlighten an "ignorant French Guy" . . .

A Bientôt, Antoine

Kate said...

I only started reading Bazaar a couple of months ago...it's so good I can't believe I hadn't cottoned onto it before then!

Francis Girard said...

ALMOND round toe or pointy shoes sound like a dream..... I prefer round though as my toes hurt down towards the point. xf

Raiment Urbane said...

wow. Thank you very much for this!
I can't get this magazine anywhere over here!

Nemerae said...

Great post!
I have never seen that magazine in Spain, but I'm going go to London next week so I'll look for it there :D it seems to be a great fashion magazine!!
I like a lot the new trends for next season, it's like a mixture of romantic style, glam rock and femme fatale haha
Have a nice afternoon! :)
Byeee

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

Thank you for the sweet comment!

And thank you for this post. I don't know what it is about Harpers, but I never pick it up. I love fierce fashion and will be checking it out. Every item that caught my eye was from Balmain, what I wouldnt give for one of Christophe Decarnin's designs

stilettostetico said...

ps: Great Thanks for the precision Dear !!! Actually I had not thought in almond's shape . . . Je suis un peu "tête en l'air" !!!

A Bientôt, Antoine

Kira Fashion said...

I love that yellow dress from YSL! perfect!!!

a kiss!!

AlicePleasance said...

Actually I love the August issues of italian fashion magazines too cause they're all about new seasons runways, but most of all I love the August issue of Vogue Italia (the only one which is not one month in advance, so I'll have to wait...) cause it comes with the always great shopping magazine :-)

1234 said...

good thing you posted this! i almost never buy british HB, but this issue looks good!

MONI said...

I saw this at my bookstore...great magazine..thanks for posting...

Winnie said...

I think I may buy this tomorrow, thanks for the heads up!

Paris said...

Hello my darling!! Your posts and comments always make me smile so much! I do not usually read Harpers Bazaar as I figure I have to draw the line somewhere, not because of the money, I could give up food for my magazines, the reason is because I cannot bear to throw them away so where to keep them? However your post has given me something to consider! Well I definitely have to buy this issue!! I love fierce chic, I wonder if the Luella gothic witch look would fit into this one? Also loving belt up too! I hope my cream fur coat will still be ok for winter? Can I get away with it during a recession? xx

Aretha said...

Thanks for your kind words, and thanks for these scans! My fav show was the Lanvin one, I love every dress

the.luxe.interim said...

I love British Bazaar but unfortunately, living in America, I either have to wait for someone to post it (thank you very much, btw), or else I have to pay for a more expensive imported copy. Thanks! Love it!

annabananna said...

thanks so much for posting these! the magazine is awefully pricey here, so you saved me a lot of money :)

Your'e So Fetch! said...

I want lots of faux fur and patent leather!

Richel said...

those are the coolest white louis vuittons I've ever seen in my life.

Rice and Beans Vintage Clothing said...

I love Bazaar! I also love that Burberry puffy black coat on the last page!

(R)evolver74 said...

Metallic is in!!!!

I LOVE the Jil Sander coat thing in #3!!! Particularly the architectural-looking collar!!

:Fashion Frenzy: said...

I love fall fashion / magazines, but summer is great too! Thanks for the heads up, I need to get a peek!

MadameDior said...

thanks for you're lovely comments and the scans! those shoes in the stiletto shot are absolutely amazing! And jan. and July are also my favorite months purely because of all the sales!

CoutureCarrie said...

What a treat to get a sneak peak inside British Bazaar! I subscribe to US, and it is definitely one of my fashion Bibles. I am so delighted to see all those fierce pointy toed shoes!

fashion herald said...

love HB so love seeing the British version!! thanks, and i just don't feel ready for pointed toes in my heels again, so I'm with you on the almond toe.

Nancy said...

So "fierce chic" is officially a term now? I still prefer calling it the "bad-ass look"! I'm super excited for this fall trend!

Dana (pron. like Donna) said...

I love looking at posts and editorials like these but sometimes I stop and think how wearable it all is.
And I don't just mean "it's crazy how they put it together, so over the top" but actually there are some single pieces that are so out-there I would NEVER go near them... like the giant fur shrugs and some of those stilettos. You gotta be Agyness or Mary Kate to wear that.

Charlotte said...

I love Balenciaga and Balmain lately! And those high heels,mmmmmm, sumernights, party...!!

Lana said...

Thanks for adding me to your blog roll! I already added you to mine :).

Miby said...

Gosh I love most of the things in here! Definitely Chic and sophisticated! That Balenciaga dress is gorgeous, is just so feminine! I personally adore shoes and those stilettos are something else! Love them all!

Thanks for sharing this Harper's report! :) xxxxxx

Grayburn said...

I love all of the shoes shown here...forget about the silk, I'm going for these shoes LOL!!

AsianCajuns said...

If only the American Bazaar was half as creative! I'll try to save up for the British version!

In Yr Fshn said...

I love the chunky jewelry associated with this style! I hope it's all bold plastics and heavy metals. Thanks so much for posting these pics!

design for mankind. said...

Oh I'm getting so so excited! :)

savvy mode said...

So into accessories with an edgy this season. I saw the same Fendi bag/clutch but I thought the bag was heavy and flat, which I wouldn't really use it at all. But the idea is cool.

Beka said...

I LOOOOOOVE those Louis Vuitton's on the last page. So gorgeous!

You know, I never read Harper's, but I think I may just start.

Thanks!

Lust for Fashion said...

Thank you so much for the lovely comment!! I can't wait to incorporate my blazer into almost all my outfits. I have a lot more ideas in my head so I can't wait to go to more thrift stores. This post is the best one yet. Its so inspirational!!

emerald cloche said...
