Tallinn Fashion week part 2

During the second day of Tallinn Fashion Week, we saw collections from Monton, Diana Arno, Goldtime, Triinu Pungits and Embassy of Fashion which includes designs from Aldo Järvsoo, Riina Põldroos and Ketlin Bachmann.
I think my overall favorites from the second day were Riina Põldroos and Monton. And of course I need to mention the jewelry collection from Goldtime. We saw the designs from Tanel Veenre, New Vintage by Kriss, Birgit Skolimowski and Monquer.

The day was opened by Monton’s collection. This collection was specially made for Tallinn Fashion Week. Collection’s name is „Duality“. We can spread the collection in two parts. The first part shows the icy island and the other is a reminder of hot Cuban inspiration. There were 30 designs all together.
In the first part of the collection, we saw very tonal color palette. Mostly from gray to black with a touch of white. Long white maxi dresses with see-through materials were my personal favorite. Also in Monton’s collection, we had a chance to see the sporty socks element. Again good styling, but we’ve seen in before like I mentioned in my last post. They added the tulle for a lot of dresses which in my opinion didn’t go together with all outfits. Example, the black and white embroidered sleeveless dress layered with tulle and styled with sporty socks, skinny denim and silver heels. In my opinion, it was a little bit too much and the cut of the dress wasn’t very flattering. Also, my least favorite the silver bodysuit with the bomber jacket looked a little bit off. Maybe it was the fault of the model who didn’t wear it fierce enough. That’s another point for the designer it is very important to choose your models wisely. They are the first people who present your collection to the public so better be sure that the person rocks it on the runway.
I was very impressed with men’s collection and the styling they had done. Shorts with leggings, interesting bomber jackets and jumpsuits are quite a strong choice for any Estonian guy.
The other part of the collection was inspired by Cuban vibes like I said before. My ultimate favorite from this part was the long flower pattern kimono. I really would wear this every single day during the spring. Just style it with cool denim, mules and simple white T, uhh sounds like a dream to me.  Also, the ruffles were quite a keyword for Monton’s TFW collection. The second part also brought a lot of colors for men’s which is making me super happy. I would love to see guys in Estonia doing a little bit of color blocking with their outfits. Something little bit bolder but definitely worth trying.

Next on the stage was Diana Arno with her pastel colors collection. The eye catchers for this collection were definitely the flower accessories. They perfectly matched with all the outfits that we saw on the runway. Again I had my favorite which was the light violet coat with big square pockets on both sides. Styled with this huge flower scarf which was breathtaking. I would really wear every single coat from this collection I saw. My second favorite thing were the long maxi dresses with a very low back line, which makes them so sexy and wearable on warm spring and summer days.

I was very impressed with the Goldtime accessories collection which brought a lot of diversity to the stage. The only things I wasn’t a fan about were the basic white t-shirt and basic denim with heels. We were discussing with Pilleriin and maybe more suitable would have been long black bodysuits which make the accessories pop out even more. I know it wasn’t about the outfits in this show but still, it would add something extra to it. Basic T’s and denim are too boring on the runway to even consider this option.  But if we talk about the collection overall for me it was quite amazing. Ultimate favorite was the clock which was braided into the hair, I will give my 10 points to that.

Last part of the show brought to the stage Triinu Pungits and Embassy of Fashion. Triinu Pungits collection was my least favorite one from the second day. The dark brown colors have never been my favorite ones and if someone makes the collection out from this color I just cannot relate. The only things which caught my attention were the colorful bodysuits which I would definitely wear and the big oversized pattern coats.

Embassy of Fashion gave us a chance to see a big variety of amazing evening dresses which made me feel like a princess.  Aldo Järvsoo’s bold colors and feminine cuts were something that every confident woman would like to wear. Ketlin Bachmann didn’t surprise me in any way and for me, the collection wasn’t flattering at all. Starting with the styling of colorful tights and finishing with a mixture of too many patterns and materials. For me, there is a line of „go crazy“ styling and sometimes it just doesn’t work out in a good way. This collection is a very good example that all the patterns don’t complete each other and as a designer, you need to be very careful with this. There is a very thin line between getting it wrong or right. Maybe the garments would work with a different styling but definitely not the way it was put together for this show.

We finished TFW with Riina Põldroos’s collection which for me was one of the best ones.  My personal style is not that feminine and I rarely wear long maxi dresses with flower prints but in this collection there just was something what I really liked. My most favorite outfit was the black jumper with unicorn details and long sheer skirt with black flowers. Also, the outfit with long pink wide trousers and matching flower top stole the show. All the dresses I saw in this collection made my heart beat faster and I’m really dreaming wearing them. Time to discover my feminine side I guess.

So this was my overview of Tallinn Fashion Week. I was really happy that I got a chance to visit it and can’t wait to come back to the next one. I’m already back in London and actually sitting in a cafe at the moment writing this post for you guys. London is full of sunshine and warm weather at the moment and I’m gonna go now and enjoy this vitamin D weather.

Here some of my favorite pics from the runway. Enjoy babes
