Look back on Riga Fashion Week - Narciss

"NARCISS is committed to help women to fell in love with their reflection once and forever." Find out more www.narciss.lv/..

NARCISS is the brand name made by Alise Trautmane.
"The ultimate aim of the pret-a-porte brand NARCISS, deriving its name from the Greek mythology, is to make a woman love her reflection - either it is in the mirror or in the eyes of the men surrounding her." from www.narciss.lv

To create NARCISS collection F/W 2010/2011 Alise Trautmane got inspired by the legendary hero of the Latvian epic Lāčplēsis or Bear-slayer in English..

At the origin Lačplēsis was a man but NARCISS has transformed the legend and now there is not a physical but there is spiritual fight between Her and the Black Knight once started by Lāčplēsis..
I couldn't resist to add also the photos from the NARCISS catalog cause I like them too much, and for these photos I have to say thanks to fashion blogger Anii.. Visit her site and you'll know more about fashion in Latvia.. www.anii.lv/ And believe me there is a lot more..

"NARCISS provides sophisticated glamour for women following the latest fashion trends, yet not that slavishly and keeping their own personal style." from www.narciss.lv

"NARCISS encourages women to mix the kitschy, humorous themes of the season with something that is flatering and elegant, and they will shine and glitter attracting all the eyes." from www.narciss.lv

PFW - Louis Vuitton

“My dear young lady, there was a great deal of truth, I dare say, in what you said, and you looked very pretty while you said it, which is much more important” ~Oscar Wilde

Beautiful lady.. I love that Louis Vuitton knows a woman's worth..

I adore this combination of pure beauty and self-confidence, inner strength..

As usual, Louis Vuitton arises up with its accessories.. I couldn't resist to make an accent on bags..

PFW - Alexander McQueen

"He wanted to get back to the handcraft he loved, and the things that are being lost in the making of fashion."

"He was looking at the art of the Dark Ages, but finding light and beauty in it. He was coming in every day, draping and cutting pieces on the stand."

~Sarah Burton (his right hand)

“If you ask any lady they want to be taller, they want to be slimmer, you know, and they want a waist. I'm not here to make people look like a sack of potatoes.”

~Alexander McQueen

“Every single inspired, original, lofty, whimsical, stunning, brilliant and jaw dropping detail was Alexander Mcqueen. There has never been anyone like him. And there simply never will be.”

~Sarah Jessica Parker

PFW - Akris

“I think men are afraid to be with a successful woman, because we are terribly strong, we know what we want and we are not fragile enough.” ~Shirley Bassey

I looked through Akris Fall 2010 collection, and I completely fell in love with it.. Albert Kriemler fully knows how to please a confident woman..

Perfect for everyday wear..

Perfect for work..

Perfect for some dinner with friends or theater..

I really adore and appreciate these big comfortable bags cause in nowadays we live in such a hurry that we need to carry a lot of things in our bags.. Bags have to be big and stylish..

Hope you got some inspiration.. Feel free to share your thoughts on this collection or on something else..
