Hey my little munchkins,i know theres only like 5 of you follwing me at the moment but still i love you all! anyways back to my point,which was…oh yeah! fashion week,its almost over,and i know,i know in the big scheme of things like egypts revolution and famine,and everything,WHO CARES! now as a designer i really shouldn’t have said that but i mean we do need to indulge ourselves every now and then,and I know most designers like myself who haven’t been lucky enough to get to fashion week yet,all gaze at the magical images,and dream,and get occasionally miffed that we thought of the design like ten years ago but we are too broke to have our own show!
phew anyway,here,we go. I have trowled the shows(not in person,in spirit) to bring you all the awsome bursts of fun and colour,this post will concentrate on fall 2012/13 fashion shows from around the globe,that caught my eye.BECAUSE THY ACTUALLY HAD SOME BLOODY COLOUR IN! i know its missing some key collections you might think like gucci,and prada,but this is my take and i hope you enjoy it.also,want to say that none of the images below are mine i got them from vogue.com.
i heart this entire collection! check out the best of the best below!
i heart this entire collection! apart from the use of lips,check out the images below,just ’cause i’m jealouse i did it first!
one of many grafiti and punk inspired outfits i have seen for fall 2012
aaaaaaaaahhhhh LOVE it! come on its green(ish) it has bobbles matching kick ass shoes,and a coat!
i am green jello at this,simply because i did it first! yes i know i shouldn’t hate,but i am peeved,my tees,have alot of embroideries and lips with a toungue sticking out is one of them,i did that two years ago.
now this to me,was a bit out of the norm for Manish,i looked more jeremy scott,if you know what i mean,which is NOT a bad thing
now i know this got mixed reviews but in my book any refrence to pin up fashion,like this skirt is a win win,and PINK is deffo my fave colour
now i am not a fan of all the grafitti going on this season,and i think if you took this dress out of its context it would be a blob..sorry
ok,now i put in Jean paul gaultier,simply because i love him and his perfumes,but i miss the OLD jpg,i miss the madness this is all a bit too Karl Lagerfield for me.
MORE BLOODY GRAFFITTTI
this what was i talking aout ,the over kill of grafitti mixed with some punk,which i love,
yes! and oui! thats what i want to see crazy coloured fur and some accessories
this is by far my fave collection,not because of the colour only,but to be honest it remids me alot of my style and my designs so it gives me hope that ill make it
now you really need to check out the detail on this bad boy its lush
all i can say is kukukachuuuuu now i think from this collection alot of you are sensing my fave styles by now
ok,,,not getting the blue martian objective,but i love the frock! and the tights,it makes me think of unicorns and rainbows,now wouldnt be awsome if jeremy scott collaborated with these guys
now i have the upmost respect for this lass,i mean she has worked has bum off! to get to where she is,and her way of manipulting prints and turning them into structured 3 d creations is something that no one else has mastered.i have seen a few designers try this season to emulate her,and i have seen some prints that looked alot like her capsule first collection,but no one does it like her,and now she has pencils in the mix as well!
swoooon,lok at the swirls and to think its made of pencils!
I love the fact that if you look closer the prints on the textiles,have given u the illusion that this dress is a lot more structured than it is,the cut is flawless,and the prints accentuate that
i am breathless,i mean how can you not go back to a place of serenity and joy when you look at these peices.
also one of my top five designers! i love the name,the feel the whole production! i mean i love how the show was styled to fit the name of the label.
see now this dress just shows you how diverse this brand is,its very Dand G of them
now,i dont know how but he crazy wall paper works in unison with the cute pharonic prints.
this is what i like to call the floral that bites! its sexy cloral instead of the usual pastel blooms we have been seeing
now heres one of the big ones,as in shows! i am not usually a fan of pleather or leather,but i must say the use of orange and the sexy print is sassy and i like
ok now i know this isn’t colourful but there is something about the grunge aspect to it and the cut,if you look closer that i love so ihad to put it in!
here’s another darker colour but the cut and simplicity does appeal to me
now if you have noticed alot of the trousers this season are peg legs,and chinos,also they are quete reminiscent of the victorian era,if you look closely some designers even have small ornaments hanging from the waist to the poket or belt loop.they remind me of helen magnus in sanctuary,and world war 1
I think this will be a very influential piece on the high street,its got structure,its sexy and flattering and it has prints which is an essential for 2012 13
another collection that makes me green jello,i mean come on! a jimmi hendrix miltary coat i did that in 04! but i mean you can’t fault nicole miller,her collections are wearable and sexy and i like the murky print
again a refrence to victorian fashion with the high neckand the frills but the jaket makes it 2012 and i love the punk feel of the trousers and shoes
now this feels different to lambs last fall collection,but i like the structure,i wish it had some more cute and fun factors though
dont forget your jumpsuits,and yes,they are still in and will be for quite some time.
cheeky print there in the formality of it all
more prints and peg legs,but i would’nt dare comment on dkny i mean come on! its the brand!
not his usual leather and whip styles that i have seen,but more pencil skirts and prints
more orange,bold colurs and peg legs! yay so glad i bought all those pencil skirts this year and for the past 5 years he he he
comfort and fashion you get this!
now this collection was truly elgant and very my style check out the pinup rolls!!!! yay!! its so detailed,beaded and timeless,i mean Jenny’s designs are always classics
this is a bit glam for me,but think of the red carpet next year,this is bound to show up,its just sexy,and very 1900’s
mmm m mmmmmmmmmm tasty!!!
see this is sexy and elgant and not trashy satin and silk which unfortunately has been seen everywhere!lol
i must say i didn’t like all the collection but here are some of my faves again with the orange peeps!
and prints and peg legs!!
this collection is also in my top five it was compact,diverse and glamorouse,i love this skit! its ruffles are effortless
this dress is red carpet worthy even with the caj print but the hair and setting really shows it off
this reminds me of gossip girl and georgina sparks!
not one of my fave Marc jacobs collections but he is a master and i felt that this medley needed him!!
i love the material here
my fave from the entire collection
as a loyal Betsey babe! i even have her slippers i was disappointed that i didnt see more of Betseys craziness in this collection… :((((
see?just not Betsey
i know there’s a skull in there somewhere but still i miss betseys sequins,lush legggings and tutus
YAY!! BRING ON THE FUN!! GOD I WANT TO WORK FOR THIS DUDE! how can you not love the cudly toy fur shrug!
although mary k did a typewriter print,i love this one cause of the colour and boldness
i love this mac and it remids me of his adidas stuff
now never mind the mental ness look t the corset!!! and the shoes!
the richness of this collection,just reminded me of the streets of paris and its rich culture
a bit gothic but every collection has had a gothic touch and victorian/edwardian edge in,alongside the prints and the colours and peg legs.
look really closely at this print,is it a play suit,or a dress? mm ponder,ponder.
top five all the way! now i feel that the prints were screen printed which is amazing and gives it a depth and texture to the end result,also i love the rose pastel colouring mixed in with the orange and the bleeded out prints
i really appriciate the artestry of this collection i mean you can tell the work that has gone into it.its inspiring,i love th mix of structure yet loose and flowing dress’s the mix of prints and regal feel to the garments,the use of such light colours that give a high impact.this truly is worthy of a lot of media attention i love this collection.
i really like the sheer layering with the prints peering through
even a simple switch of colour made such an impact!
unfortunately,this was the only piece that stuck out to me in the entire collection and also i am sorry to say but it seemed a bit questionable when it came to execution and fabric choice
i mean wats not to bloody love.very camden meets east village
take a closer look at the print,i respect the fun factor of this collection and i want that bag!
bring on the punk
one of my wishlist pieces
i love henry holland but i was hugely disappointed!
i did like the prints and shine,but i feel that there was not enough variation
i know this collection was ins[ired by russia and mongolia,and mines inspired by arabian nights but i was soooo angry when i saw the print!! its so similar to mine the one i have planned to get printed on fabric :(((((
i like that this entire collection could appeal to the middle east tooi like that this entire collection could appeal to the middle east tooi like that this entire collection could appeal to the middle east too
the best embroidery i have seen out of all the collections very renaissance
im bored already
all i can say is pam hogg did what pam hogg does best! stick to what you know i guess so get your pvc and vinyl out
not a fan of the choice of print but the colours and the fur is stunning
again.i think the print is not great considering the competition of epic prints out there
my top five and the whole collection is in my wish list!! its a step into my ideal wardrobe!
how awsome are these pants!!!!!!!!
the sequins are mental
prada to me was.blaa
this collection was mad! there was sooo much i need a whole website just to show it and comment it was true to milan and d and g it was huge and influential and it had everything! gothic tones,cute lolitta frills,tapestry amazing jewlerry and detailed renaisance looking belts ,a bit of edgy funk,and marie antoinette
check out the tapestry!
this piece was flawlwss,i want it! it would make any body look sexy and hour glassed
oozes sex appeal
some more classic cuts and punches of colour,check donna karen’s collection for similar structured 1920’s inspired tailored looks
the best bead work n the world! seriousely!
this collection was noteworthy and i know that it will influence the highstreet when it comes to fabric and cut
i liked this collection but…mmm
i love this its like a coture sweatsuit!
a mix from last year is back with the brown and pink
