Just a quick look at Gucci. Very 70s-inspired, which I like, though a few proportions have been played with, which is fine. Lots of eye-poppingly bright colors mixed in with more traditional neutral hues, furs and such.

Natasha Poly. I like the top half of this like; the bottom’s too bulky for my liking. The big cape should be paired with a streamlined pant, maybe a flare for the full 70s effect or a slim straight leg.

Again, I like to top half, but the bottom, not so much.

Gucci is always hit-or-miss for me; I’d say this was a hit, though that might just be my love of anything older than 1985 ¬†:)

Honestly, I haven’t had time to keep up with any of the fashion weeks… very sad. I can’t help but feel obligated to share this Louis Vuitton shoe with you, though:

Yes, it’s that time of almost-fall again: spring collections are on! Unfortunately, I have basically no time at all between my APs, cross country, and any semblance of a life… oh, and sleep… so this blog has been shunted aside for the past few months. Sigh. (Which really is a pity, because I’ve had some smashing political rants to rant and nowhere to rant them…)

Anyway, just a quick opener: Derek Lam. Very fluid, kind of a 60s/70s vibe – what I got, anyway. (Man am I tired!) (Images from NYmag)

Sorry for no model names, I got the images from NYmag. Though Style.com now has a really handy/cool feature where, for each look, there’s a short clip of the look on the runway. Thanks!

OK, I really need sleep. Later, gator. Er…. yeah, that’s just how out of it I am. Happy Fashion Week!

Collette Dinnigan: as always, ladylike and romantic – mostly black this season, with lace. Darkly feminine, perhaps?

Issa: gave off a rather mixed vibe, varying from black and besequined items – short and very London-edgy – to a few tailored grey capes and jackets to a few furs and graphic floor-length dresses. Not very cohesive, it felt, but cool nonetheless.

(and I mean picks, not “pix” – as in, I’ve picked a few of my favourite of his street style pics)


I feel like I should write about him. He looks like a story. … Isn’t it kind of odd how you can look at a picture of a person, a totally random and normal and very real person, and create your own idea of them – you forget that they’re really living over in Milan, or wherever…

If you’re going to do cargo pants, this is the way to do them.

The shoe: a low midcalf rain boot/laceup sneaker kind of hybrid… I like it.
