Originating in the 1970s in southern France, Soirée Blanche was a summer event where guests dressed in all white.

This summer, Cabana Lounge will reproduce the glitz and glamour of this period, adorning The French events airy terrace and bar in white to reflect Saint-Tropez’s exclusive ambience.

Guests will be invited to dress in all white and enjoy hours of Good music, ambience, champagne and themed beverages, as well as specialty food from the grill (VIP Tables Only). Cabana's resident DJ will complete this summer lounge vibe with relaxing music perfectly paired with the atmosphere.

The dress code will be white. Come and enjoy our last summer event from The creators of Shibuya NYT.

Tame Impala - 'Cause I'm A Man / Fall 2016 Read -to-wear Louis Vouitton ~
..."On the sporty side, there were mohair sweaters and jacket-sweater hybrids with racing stripes up and down the arms. Color-blocked stretchy knit shirts and tube dresses looked like relatively easy-on-the-wallet ways to buy into the look. Representing the sensual side were midi-length dresses in heritage scarf prints and a white silk number topped by a black leather harness that caught the runway breeze. We liked the look of zip-front, molded-hip jackets worn with loosely tailored bondage pants, and nipped-waist coats with exaggerated storm flaps."... ...article and show.

You must watch the show! BRILLIANT.
 I were a buyer I would purchase these. There are 53 looks so I chose quite a few.

Diplo - Revolution (feat. Faustix & Imanos and Kai) [Official Music Video] / 5 Best Men's Raya Collection from Bernard Chandran's Petang Raya 2016/2017!5-Best-Mens-Raya-Collection-from-Bernard-Chandrans-Petang-Raya-20162017/c1kod/57413ac50cf249a3b8a9fcb3

Cultural fashion is huge right now. Here we see a strong Asian influence with modern, innovative and classic details. Rich in design, style and detail, I truly enjoyed this collection. Here are my stand outs from the images provided. I enjoyed much more!

Make sure you click the link to see the show. It's brilliant.

"Influenced by the insights and beauty of designing for the aristocrats and a royal clientele, Bernard Chandran channeled inspiration from the joys to social expectations and confines of a royal princes in his recent tenth anniversary Petang Raya show. Evident in this collection, we see Bernard Chandran paying special homage to Her Majesty the Queen of Brunei’s regal style from her preferred floral silk prints headscarves to her bejeweled attire.

Staying true to his consistency by bringing fresh concepts and continuous updates to the traditional Malay wear, the Petang Raya collection also came to a queenly height when Bernard Chandran introduced several revolutionary styles of cut, contrasting colours, prints and textures, with ‘70s undertones to the overall formation." ...

M.I.A. - XXXO / Moschino 2017 Spring Summer Mens Runway Looks
"Moschino and designer Jeremy Scott conducted their 2017 Spring Summer Mens Runway Catwalk Looks in Los Angeles, California. From the presentation, we selected only the top fashion forward styles and our favorite pieces."

I find that I can be subjective. I know what I like but I feel I should be more liberal and see the BIG PICTURE, especially when the  collections are all about prints!

I posted this image because I would prefer the black look. I wouldn't pair them together though. NO WAY! 

When I go for my walks downtown I am always looking around. Sadly I see a lot of men and women mirroring looks straight out of a magazine ad, or a fashion show. Be careful people. Keep in mind these are styled looks using usually only one brand and that can look 'super cray' with a collection like this for instance. Just my own opinion.

Don't get me wrong, I love prints and I certainly respect Jeremy Scott. #FAN
Let's chalk it up as getting a bit older and being more aware of what is appropriate for my age.

Paul Reynolds - A Flock Of Seagulls (Space Age Love Song) / VETEMENTS F/W 2016/2017! more and watch the show! 
I too, am inspired by new wave culture. Instead of picking all my favourites I will leave it up to you to pick your fave's, from their picks! I love it.
I will pick just one.

"VETEMENTS F/W 2016/2017"

..."Presented in a Protestant church in the chicest district of Paris, the winter collection got that brand´s typical “this does´t get well together” mix of street-wear, genderless garments, uniform, gothic elements, conservative pieces and bondage in sometimes really exaggerated proportions, like over-padded or restricted shoulders and amplified volumes on tight cowboy or lurex boots."....

HAHAHAAHA! #loveit!

Fleetwood Mac - Gold Dust Woman (album version) / THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2016 EDITORIAL: Pooja Mor for, July 2016
I love Pooja Mor.  Indian born and former beauty pageant winner. I love that she looks very diverse. I see Frida Kahlo, and she was MEXICAN...if you didn't know. Who doesn't know Frida? Anyway, I found a part of a interview that is very interesting. Somethings I would love to know about this beauty queen.

If you are a studious girl through school and college and score 82 per cent in Physics-Chemistry-Mathematics, engineering is probably your destined profession.
But Pooja Mor had other ideas.
Her real love was modelling and she wanted to make a career out of it. But there was a hitch.
"My parents didn't want me to become a model. They felt that the profession was for the fickle minded and that it did not promise a sustainable career or source of income," says Pooja.
Only her elder brother, Sudhir, who is a product designer, understood that modelling made her happy.
"If it hadn't been for his timely support, I would have never become a model," says the 22-year old winner of Miss Ahmedabad 2012, who was featured on the August 2014 cover of Adorn, a luxury jewellery magazine.
In this candid interview, Pooja Mor who recently walked the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2014 edition, talks about her career, the mistakes she made and why the fashion industry deserves respect.
You're an IT engineer. What inspired you to quit the tech world and become a model?
I was 18 when I made the choice of pursuing engineering. As the course began, I found myself bored.
I was good in studies and cleared my exams, but I had no interest whatsoever in taking it further.
I told my elder brother that I wanted to get a professional photo shoot done for which I needed money.
My brother realised it was time I did what I loved and helped me with some cash.
I took a train to Delhi and told my parents I was going on a sightseeing trip.
The photo shoot paid off and I eventually won the title of Miss Ahmedabad.
Winning the pageant made me more confident of modelling as a profession.
I was interviewed by Femina as a rising star and through that interview I was spotted by Gunita, a model agent with Anima Creatives.
They asked me to sign a contract. I thought about it for three months before signing. I joined them in March 2014 and since
then there's been no looking back for me."
Are your parents happy about your career choice?
They weren't happy at the start, and kept telling me how the industry had no prospects.
They had heard and read stories about how girls fall in the wrong company and get trapped.
When I left for Mumbai and did long photo shoots, my protective brother would stay in touch with me at all times and keep me motivated.
I was lucky not to have gone through any unfortunate experiences like my family feared. In fact, their trust in me has helped me make the right choices.
Now that they've seen me grow in my career and get positive reviews, I don't think they have a problem.
How has the journey as a model been for you?
When I started my career, I had no mentors. I would just read up magazines, check videos and do my own thing.
I was extremely lucky to find the right kind of people and company.
Today I have made enough friends in the industry -- designers and models who share their positive criticism and tell me when I do something wrong and how I could improve.
Is it important to have a mentor to enter the industry?
Not at all. Look at me. I had no friends or relatives who have been part of this industry.
I started my career from scratch.
I struggled with finances -- to groom myself, to get a professional photo shoot done -- but that is an initial investment everyone has to make.
I'm glad my brother supported me financially. Not many girls are lucky to get that kind of family support. ~ MORE!
