As you may understand it is quite difficult to cover per minute all parades the week of fashion, so normally we bring you the most relevant, or those who like us most, as in my case. I almost live costume proposals of Monique Lhuillier, Alexander Wang, Hervé Léger, Victoria Beckham and Marc Jacobs, some of my favorites, and the most desirable, to which must be added the post of Carolina Herrera, Diesel, DKNY, Miss Sixty, as well as the debut of Davidelfin.
But now that the New York Fashion Week Autumn-winter 2009 / 2010 It gives (almost) for bridged and it has given us time to digest everything seen, I make a list of those favorite collections that have been us in the dark and that is worth reviewing.
Rodarte, Matthew Williamson, Preen, Derek Lam, WREN, Anna Sui, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Zac Posen, and Custo, they are chosen.
The of Rodarte It has been one of the most acclaimed collections, and is that the Mulleavy sisters have gone a step beyond the purely visual, yours has been one collection Flower of skin, almost organic, halfway between the cyborgs and the more lively nature. A collection special, different, and emotional within the coldness.
Matthew Williamson does not have special affection, in fact, I was glad when he went for Pucci, but after seeing its proposals on the New York catwalk, not is if the pessimism has been widespread has possessed for the bulk of the American designers, but their ethnicism thousand times seen me has illuminated. Yes to its colorful, and Yes, to its mix of prints (I love the geometric motifs cardigan and booties from zebra, risky, but never boring. That Yes, we must know to take it).
The body – with dresses from Preen delight of everyone, and the truth, I don’t care if you live a little bit of that and almost all of its proposals are dressed as facts tailored to Gwyneth Paltrow. I love them and what search three feet the cat.
Note: the houndstooth beats strong for the winter coming. Go take note.
Another that has surprised me for good is Derek Lam, one talented Asian more despite doing nothing extraordinary has a sense of great taste, is subtle, classic but not conservative, and not bored, which is the important thing. Although wrap camel from the Center is nearly identical to those presented by Prada in his collection for autumn-winter 2005.
This signature you can not miss them track, called WREN, and in front of it is a young American trained in the workshop of Helmut Lang and based in Los Angeles that builds so own Gossip Girl like these looks would not tell me that you love not the mixture of colors? I love sequins with cotton Jersey skirt (I have an identical of H & M). This is only an appetizer because soon I dedicate a post as God intended.
The of Anna Sui is another of the collections that not never fails, chic boho proposed season after season is a classic of the catwalks, this time has inspired in the colours of Tolouse Lautrec and in the universe of Proust, his palette of hues and silhouettes is the most pleasant and energetic that it has been in the fashion week : his clothes babydoll printed Paisley are always welcome. And eye, the model of the environment takes the middle of Gwyneth Paltrow criticadisimas Grammy, winter is coming, all with them. And fate, at the time.
Of Michael Kors, I’m sorry, but fluorescent coats have enchanted me, basically, they are what more worth of his collection, which has been pretty bleak and bland, oscurisima, and a boring ladylike and without substance, that Yes, most own Donatella Versace than Michael coats, have seemed a breath of eighties air in the wave of Marc Jacobs.
A Tommy Hilfiger include it on the list because while you tried to jump on the bandwagon of change (introducing elements in your collection nothing of it), and it has failed, continues to do what it does: casual sport looks purely American, and that is the spirit that should prevail over trying to be who is not.
With Zac Posen I’ve had doubts until the last moment, but this has been the best signal, when a collection do not know if you like it or not, at least you has not left indifferent, and that’s the key. While the criticism coincides in that sin of melodramatic, its nod to Joan Crawford in these futuristic times, deserves a vote of confidence.
Finally I stay with Custo, because even though I am not a fan of their designs especially, in gloomy times as they run, its winter collection has been me more elaborate and less repetitive than normal, more romantic and less street, a little halfway between Marc Jacobs and Luella in their spring-summer collections, but with a colorful touch of the catalan designer poppy.
Update: The of Temperley London It was a sublime collection and the video of the show “Empress of the Orient” sums up its essence. Don’t miss it here!
