awful bad this summer and neglected my beautiful blog.
Well I shall be much better I swear!
I just got back from NYC… it was amazing. I know that I need to go back and hopefully that I will live there one day.
So maybe I should have a little look at something called fashion week? Yes I shall. Here are a few picks of whats gone down so far…
You can always trust Luella to make a pretty and totally feminine collection. I want want want the polka dot pants, they remind me of childhood but in a good way. The dresses above have an amazing structure which stop the dresses from being too girly and give off the vibe of a power woman.
Gwen Steffani has really held her own with L.A.M.B and this collection goes on to prove that fact. I especially love the hooded jacket; don’t think I’d dare to bare like the model above though.
I was surprised to see Lisa from BIG BROTHER making an appearance on the Vivienne Westwood catwalk show. Although she does like to choose shall we say different models? Loved the dresses from Westwood; as always they had a playful edge and not such a straight forward cut to them.
Topshop are still holding their own in the fashion stakes. I especially loved the printed pants, they really appeal to my African print fetish.
Once again Rodarte have made a collection to lust over. I really love the trousers above; they are the kind of trousers which only go with those killer heels you’ve been saving for a special occasion. The wrapping of fabrics through out this collection really portrays a whimsical edge to the collection but it doesn’t stop it being edgy.
I really don’t know what all the fuss is about that Mark Fast used ‘plus-sized’ models. I think they look great and give a different view of how the garments can be worn on different people. It is great that he is trying to bridge the gap so people are not so alienated by fashion because of their size.
I wasn’t a massive fan of this collection when scanning through the pictures. However there were a few dresses which had a flirty fun edge to them which I can really see working next Spring/Summer.
As always Burberry Prorsum have done the Mac with the fearless attitude we have come to adore. I especially love the pastel pink (it shouldn’t work) mac; the shoulders are an amazing feat!
Wang does slouchy to a tee. If there was a market for up market student clothes I think Alexander Wang would be my choice, rolling up to lectures in his harem pants would make a 9am lecture seem a breeze.
