Future Classics SS10

A true gem of a collection in my eyes, beautifully draped with lots of big snood/hood hybrids for a middle eastern inspired silhouette that remained young, fresh and edgy with stripes, prints and bold splashes of optimistic orange and yellow. Think re-construction in it’s most elegant form with lots of asymmetric detailing and segmented shapes. Backs were cut short and high for a flirty silhouette that worked great with the chevron striped stockings!

Bootylicious

Alexander Wang’s S/S 10 collection not only gave us loose weave plaits (really want long hair to pull this off) and doubled breasted varsity sweaters but these a-m-a-zing booties!

Rodarte’s SS10 Destruction

Primitive, tribal and masterfully destroyed. The models at Rodarte rose from a mist of acid green poisin, markings covering their limbs in an animlaistic tribal identity that sat somewhere between punk-like rebellion and primitive collectivism. A relfection on our current state of society? Perhaps, but deep thinking aside this shreded, painted, burnt and sandpapered collection was a textual feast that is possibly my favourite so far.

Let the Fashion Commence

And we’re off! New York Fashion Week has begun. Credit crunch was obviously going to inspire some DIY ethos. Nice to see that some designers are attempting a more sophisticated and polished approach. Already liking Vena Cava’s punk twist with large safety pins, espech cute sheer cropped shirt attached to trousers via delicate looking pins. Tummy out again, looks like the cropped top trend may continue for next summer…

Also loving the deeper lilac lippy used on the Vena Cava girls. A lot more wearable than this season’s sugary, pastel shades.
