The final selection of Fashion Week favourites, and tomorrow we will be back to regular vintage programming. I know that many people who enjoy vintage aren’t in the least bit interested in modern fashion, but I enjoy design from all periods – including the one I live in. Art is art, whenever it is from.
I have also heard that the blog is not updating in Google Reader. I can’t find any solutions in blogger forums but am doing my bext to fix things – if anyone else has a solution please let me know!
Nicole Farhi showed some luscious sherbert colours in stiff cocoon shapes. I love the laser cut leather dress, a trend lots of designers have been playing with.
The Paul Costelloe collection was slightly mishy mashy, but I adore the black and white striped dress and the brocade trapeze coat.
The reptile-like prints at Peter Pilotto were placed in such a way to emphasise the figure in all the right places.
The Richard Nicoll show was a little haphazard, but I liked some of the ideas. In particular the clear plastic tunic layered over a brocade top and mini skirt is interesting and new and classic all at once.
My favourite part of the Roksanda Ilincic show were the flower-like cuffs. The rope belts were also lovely and something you could do so easily yourself.
Temperely was, as always, an utter delight. The dresses were beautiful, the styling was beautiful, the models were beautiful, it was all just wonderful. How could you ever choose just one of these dresses to wear? It’s almost fortunate I’ll never be in that difficult position.
The Rodnik Band were a label I’d never heard of, but aren’t their nautical themes fun. The crab dress is just incredible, I would wear it in an instant.
