From 6th to 8th of July 2015 the Principality of Monaco will turn into a temple of International Fashion and Style. Fashion shows featuring Spring- Summer 2016 collections will take place in the sumptuous rooms of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.



MC Fashion Week is organised by the Fashion Council of Monaco with the support of the Monegasque Government, the Town Hall of Monaco, the Direction of Tourism and Congress, the Russian Honorary Consulate in Monaco and the executive partner Società Italia.



The aim of the three days event is to promote new fashion talents to a large public of buyers from Multi Brands Shops, Department Stores, International Press Journalists, VIP Bloggers and other Opinion Makers coming from different countries.



Before the actual fashion shows Conferences and round table discussions with experts from the fashion sector will be organised; perfect to enable great Monegasque and International designers to showcase their talent in front of the global fashion elite.

E-Tautz-SpringSummer-2015-Collection-London-Collections-Men-DerriusPierreCom-6This weekend all the high end fashion houses present their men´s spring-summer collection 2015 in Paris. The warm weather and the fact that some of the big brand abstained from providing proper air-condition literally resulted in the melt down of many celebrities and fashionistos. Bill Gates retro trend is coming. Men at Fashion week in Paris and spotted among the laid back California dudes in bright stripes and bootcut jeans were a couple of Bill Gates dopplegangers from the same ’70s-era. The retro nerd normcore parts of the style not only picked up on the computer programmer turned billionaire’s stereotypical science teacher eyewear, but also his heretofore unknown ability to mix patterned shirts with colorful sweaters.

However, it is a packed schedule if you want to attend all the shows this week!

I personally have been to lots of fashion shows in Paris and London in the past couple of years and I have to say I am getting a bit tiered of all the pretentious fashion people pulling out their most ridiculous outfit to increase their chance of being noticed. But at the same time I totally understand. Actually I do the same. So here is my tip on what to wear during the fashion week.

If you are a bit shy but you always wanted to try a certain look then FW is your chance to try it out because the worst what can happen to you is that you are being judged as “one from the fashion show people currently in town”. So go crazy, colors, cuts, unusual combinations, crazy accessories or, all together! Wear what you always wanted to wear, be free.


The second option is to tone it down to the minimal. If you want to look like one from the industry all you have to do is, keep it simple and wear only black. Simple cuts, only one color, nude or no make up only sunglasses are allowed.



Now, lets take a closer look at what are the mens fashion trends for 2015. Here are the essentials:

  • High rise pants
  • Military style (uniform style, not camouflage!)
  • Shorts
  • Double breasted suits
  • Onesis
  • Leather, leather, leather

It will be retro for sure so pull up your pants and tuck your shirt in.


You can´t go wrong with military style. Military boots and uniform style jackets are a must-have for next year!

Also the classic shorts are back and don´t feel afraid to wear your suit with shorts.


Make sure you have a double breasted suit in your wardrobe if you want to be part if the fashion elite 2015.

Don´t be afraid to combine a leather shirt with jeans shorts, or a leather blazer to boost your party outfit. For the more courages among you I recommend to combine the onesi with the leather trend.


Always keep in mind, whatever outfit you chose, make sure you feel comfortable with it! Fashion is supposed to make you feel great, not intimidate you.


The luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton will show its first ever runway show for its cruise collection in Monaco tomorrow.

Louis Vuitton will be presenting the first cruise collection for the brand’s new artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière.


Its the first time that a fashion show will be presented at the Palais de Monaco since 1297 where the Palace was built.

The show will be taking place under the patronage and in the presence of the royal fashion plate HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco:

“I am particularly pleased to welcome to Monaco, Place du Palais, the Louis Vuitton cruise runway show and discover the creations of Nicolas Ghesquière”.


Exotic locations for luxury fashion shows are important for big labels because it allows them to make their luxury clients around the globe feel special and appreciated by their favorite high end fashion brands.

Michael Burke, the president of Louis Vuitton:

“This first cruise collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton shows the historical relationship between our house and the Principality of Monaco.”

In case you haven´t received one of the exclusive invitations (even for us it has been very very hard to get one!!!) you can watch the Louis Vuitton cruise fashion show  broadcast live on May 17 at 19h here.
