Fall/Winter 2017: For her first solo collection, Aryes Peña finds the inspiration in her Mexican roots

Aryes Peña went back to her Mexican roots for her solo collection, the first following the completion of her studies from The Art Institute of Houston.

Traditional patterns, bright colors and indigenous textiles serve as inspiration for the charming lineup, which – in keeping with her bubbly personality – was focused on comfort.  

Colors were everywhere, but hues of purple, teal and fuchsia dominated the collection. Precise cuts on dresses flattered the female figure and when embellishments, including sashes and fringe embroideries popped up, they never looked exaggerated.

Peña’s creativity shined with several knit dresses in teal, black and purple that exhibited floral and skeletal designs. What was even more peculiar, but no less exciting was the cross over knit sweater and fuchsia poncho made from wool. 

So whether you’re going for a night on the town with friends; attending a wedding or going to work; there’s something edgy, quirky and comfortable about Aryes Peña’s collection that will leave you wanting to see more.

Can’t wait to see Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Disney released a clip from their upcoming film Beauty and the Beast today in which the titled character played by Emma Watson treks across the village while singing “Belle”.

I love it!

The clip begins with a closeup of a clocktower ringing thus waking the entire village.  Women, men and children are seen opening their homes, businesses and doing chores while Belle in her blue dress skips across town in a jovial mood. Even with only 58 seconds we can tell everyone in town thinks she’s a little funny and aloof for reading books especially one of romantic inclinations.

Anyways it’s great footage and gives me hope the film will live up to its expectations.
