The YSL collection was chic as always… lots of monochrome looks. Which in my opinion I don’t think you can really go much wrong with. I especially like the first coat in the image above. It kind of reminds of a a flashers coat… but in a good way.
Everything thing looked so doll like at Viktor & Rolf, mainly to do with the models faces being painted white. But also the fabrics used looked so delicate. The first coat in the images above is absolutely stunning. I really love the detail on the sleeves and at the bottom of the coat. It gives it at certain charm.
Everyone seems to be raving at the pleather boots Stella has used in this collection. And I have to say I agree with the comments. The boots look marvelous with the oversized blazers and the structured coats. The last dress in the image above harks back to an almost underwear as outerwear stage… it looks so sexy with the sheer tights.
McQueen never fails to put on an awesome show. I wouldn’t say that this was one of his most groundbreaking shows but it was still a lift to the dark economic times we are living in. Some of the leather he used looked almost bondage like with metal rings adorning his dresses. A lot of the collection seemed to be an optical illusion with stripes clashing with houndstooth. For me though I think his collection can be worn all together by the brave…. or piece my piece by people who are admirers but just don’t have the guts.
Karl’s collection for Chanel saw sequins, leather and pastel colours. Now pastel colours usually strikes fear into the heart of many as not many people are able to pull them off. However I think pastel colours are displayed perfectly above in the form of some lovely pink tights. The last long black skirt in the images above is my dream skirt… I think I might attempt making one….
