At first when I was scrolling through the 60+ looks of the Christopher Kane show I thought to myself “whoa whoa whoa, who’s trying to be Michael Kors with all of the camo print. And whoa whoa whoa, that’s a lot of freaking camo print”. I mean I know Marc Jacobs did it last season with stripes but not everyone can barf up stripes and get away with it right? Then I scrolled down some more and the show slowly and progressively got better, and better and better. Now I’m obsessed. Seriously. Did you see the sweatshirt with fake flowers all over it!?! It’s crazy but you kind of want one right?? RIGHT!? The Christopher Kane show was progressive, new, innovative and fresh. I mean come on he found a way to make velvet look interesting. Good job CK.
Every girl needs a fur dress! Seriously? The Fall 2013 Marc Jacobs Show has everything a gal wants, fur, sparkles, ready to wear liquid pajamas… WHAT?! Amazing. Ok I’m exaggerating… a lot. But I genuinely was impressed by not only the simplicity of the MJ show but the thought behind it, the aftermath of it (I was dreaming of fur) and fabrics used in it. The only thing that confused me was the pretty-much-naked topless model walking down the runway mid show. I think it was supposed to add to the story of the show but it just looked like the model forgot her top. So confusing.
All in all though… hand clap MJ.
(click on images to view bigger) I’ve always been a fan of Michael Kors perfume, but I’ve never been that impressed by his runway. I still think he’s an evil genius… but meh. This time around for Fall 2013 MK surprised me with a fresh and uber trendy collection where he transports you into his semi cyber, military world of fashion. With pop colors of vibrant orange and true blue he creates a collage of prints with an overexposed camo and the traditional military digital camo that is huge in upcoming mass market trends right now. The clean lines, new silhouettes and laser cut leather skirts are fresh and new. Good job Michael Kors.
With the exception of a pair of really cool studded jeans (shown above- I’m a denim designer so maybe I’m bias) the Diesel NY show this season was wamp-wamp. If I was sitting front row this would be my commentary “oh look a pair of leather pants”, “oh look more black pants”, “oh look something white!” The show lacked imagination and the extremity that I think we’ve all come to except from Diesel. Do over?
The above photos do not [I feel] do the past 3 weeks of my life justice. I always forget how blessed I am in what I do, and who I surround myself with until I reflect via photos and such all that glitters. The past 3 weeks of my life have been filled with deadlines, design meetings, red carpets, FNO events, album release’s and taco trucks, lots of outfit options, a weekend away in the woods (via cabin of course), a sail boat ride, and lots and lots of laughter(duh). Next: apt. hunting, fashion week dreaming, and figuring out my next steps.
*Spring13 Runway reviews coming soon*
The past three weeks of my life have been filled with birthday dinners, celebrations, and one Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed party with my dear birthday twin Miss. Grashio. I also styled a tv commerical shoot, had many “new job” outtings that included champagne and cupcakes, and started said “new job” as denim/bottoms designer for Bebe. Not to mention special moments caught in photos that are not to be shared, but a few key ones that must be shared. Life is grand. xo poni*
