All I have to say is Galliano has such an impeccable eye for detail and is such a creative genius. His pieces are generally art and more towards the couture side, but how could you not appreciate his work for any of the labels he designs for. All of his details are so intricate and you’ll need more than one glance at his pieces, as you’ll always find something new that sparks your brain. Fantastical. His latest tribal-wear is another to the list that won’t be forgotten.
Miuccia Prada is a fashion lover’s dream. I encourage you all to look through the photos of all of her creations from this line and from those of the past and you will be highly pleased in what you find. She is at the top of trend-setting and inovation with Miu Miu and Prada.
Miu Miu brings the sexy and sweet sixties into full swing. The sixties are all over the runways and I couldn’t be happier. The eighties and nineties are overdone and worked that it’s time for something new to reminisce about and bring better innovation to the table. I love the short dresses, the deep U-fronts, the wavy hems, and the perfect color palette. Miuccia, can we be friends, please?
From the naked women on the shirts from last season to the dead-on fashions from the sixties fashion revolution, Miu Miu always has its humorous and provocative quirks that I adore.
There’s something about this fabric that is very interesting and yet so perfect about its choice and use. Very well done, Miuccia.
The shoes are so detailed they’re and so on point. They have a square to and have floral embellishments along with ties that match the silly over-sized ones her models wear as well. I also appreciate the make-up that matches these color schemes. Très bien.
Look who the cat drug out of the bag at Hermès. Lily Cole was the opener in all leather and a bowler hat. Awaiting the rest of the line-up.
I am actually taken aback by Karl Lagerfeld, who is also Fendi’s Creative Director, actually put faux-fur down the runway. I’m glad he’s recognizing how far the industry has come in revolutionizing the alternatives, although I don’t see a change in Fendi anytime soon. That’s alright, though. Did we mention that chunk of ice is a real iceberg? Apparently it was shipped and will be shipped back. Nothing is ever too over the top for Karl.
Through all of the outlandish fur, Karl featured Chanel basics such as the tweed jackets, etc. I’m in adoration of the angora as well, and could see myself one day in these get-ups wandering the streets of West Lafayette. I’ll accept the crazy, because dammit, I’ll be batshit, out of control, Britney crazy to walk around here like this, and I’ve come to terms with that. While some of the fur seems a tad on the couture side, I’m sure it would be a hit for a Star Wars convention where one could finally find a quality Wookie costume, because you know, you just can’t get a decent Wookie costume these days.
Through and through, there are many items that any woman could put in their own wardrobe, including those iconic jackets that will forever be a Chanel staple. Chanel epitomizes high quality, and Karl didn’t back down and put on one hell of a show.
I’m not going to write much on Alexander (Lee) McQueen’s last collection as I feel his work is art, so you should interpret however you feel necessary and appreciate it for what it is. He followed through his spring collection with similar silhouettes and had intricately designed brocade, prints, beading, and absolutely fabulous fabrics. It’s a shame that his career has been ended so soon, but this definitely leaves a positive lasting impression. As in previous collections, he was obviously inspired by royalty, this time maybe by French royalty specifically. The main inspiration I believe is heavily influenced by Italian opulence, the Renaissance, and maybe Victorian inspiration as well. Absolutely beautiful and ornately done. Today started the appointment only showing of his collection, and it is by far a highly intricate collection that will forever be remembered in all of his previous works.
While I continue to wear my skinny jeans as I feel they look best on my long-ish legs, I would consider to wear Gareth Pugh’s Fall RTW 2010 pants any day. I’m not use to wearing a different pants style, but these are to die for. The pants are fitted in the thigh and flare out around the knee for the most perfect look that I would definitely wear as an alternative to the skinnier styles that I prefer. Also, I love the male model’s hair and I’m curious to see what the cage-like straps he wears would look on top of some shirt of any kind. Things like this leaves the line as very provoking. Something to ponder on.
While I’m on topic, I didn’t know what to think about Pugh’s show. It is by far the edgier material that has been shown in Paris this past week. I just reviewed it again to regain the image of the pants that I love. Well, I am intrigued at the a-line with an edge attitude that Mr. Pugh gave me. He experimented with a dark, sexy, almost dominatrix themed show with leather and PVC-like materials that I really enjoyed. A lot of the things seem purely experimental and too edgy for an everyday crowd, and that’s okay. At least I can now imagine a true sense of uniform that I would wear while kicking ass, because a lot of this actually reminds me of the Matrix.
What really kills me is the cashmere coat that Karlie Kloss strutted in. This girl always gets the best ensembles in all of the shows she walks in, as you may have seen me mention her in numerous posts. In addition to the coat, the flared pant gives this such a wonderful play on silhouette, really something that arouses my attention. I would like to make my order now on her coat and the pants, and would like my shipment as soon as fall hits. K, thanks.
So Lindsay Lohan has been spotted everywhere but at Emanuel Ungaro. You know what that means ladies and gentlemen. Let’s just get down to it.
Estrella, please, can we sit down and have a one on one. I mean, seriously. Not that I ever imagined Lindsay Lohan actually having anything to do with Ungaro’s infamous line during Spring 2010 RTW, but this line apparently didn’t include Lindsay, yet we’re still essentially getting glorified party dresses influenced by the 80s and 90s that we’ve all seen before, maybe even just having better craftsmanship than Forever 21. They’re cute, don’t get me wrong, I love the feminine prints, but it’s not something you should have designed after last fall, not to mention the trends you followed are a little been there, done that.
It’s a tad juvenile and I wonder if you’re actually the cause of all the ruckus that has been amuck. While I’m certain you possess talent, you’re designing for Emanuel Ungaro, no doubt. Sure, even designers such as Marc Jacobs had his disasters at the beginning of his career, but let’s get this train chugging. I think I can, I think I can. You don’t have to design minimalist-chic, but I think you could try a little harder, dear.
Meanwhile, I do like all of the jackets. It brings something more than just a line of pretty party dresses. Until next time, Estrella, until next time.
Picking up where I left off from Paris, Ronia Rykiel presented many over-sized menswear pieces and plenty of knits to fill one’s wardrobe. I really enjoy the knits and the wool. The pom-pom head bands were a bit ridiculous and there could have been less over-sized wardrobe, but I do like most that she put down. The finale brought all of the models out singing and dancing to Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” in beautiful ostrich feathered pieces ending a truly fun and energetic show.
