Can it be? Fashion Week is over? *heart-wrenching sob*
Actually I’m ok with that. But anyway: Hermes, Galliano, & Elie Saab.
HERMES featured an aviator theme, which was a refreshing breeze (ha ha, get it? Aviator? Breeze? ….. never mind.)
Raquel Zimmerman. I love the runway itself!
So yeah. A bit of Eskimo-esque-ness at the end there. Now for the glorious Galliano!
Very Russian, very winter-wonderland-y. Very very very gorgeous, it seems to bare the essence of Fashion itself. The amazing clothes were accented by an almost fairytale setting and a dusting of snow, perfectly complementing each other. Dark, luxe colours and fabrics mixed with a few bright looks – a red minidress (complete with lampshade skirt) and a brightish blue coat and dress stood out amongst the throngs of gentle grey coats, white sheer loose leggings, and hugely accented corsets and skirts. The shoes – oh, the shoes! – pompom’ed, platformed, tall, and cool. Ridicuously ornate and embellished headdresses and necklaces and chains were flaunted throughout, echoing traditional Russian decoration.
Space pirate? John Galliano.
A truly gorgeous line – while it’s not really wearable per se, it really is… just…. wow-inspiring. The shoes are fun, too – perhaps one of the few really wearable pieces in the whole thing. That, and maybe… umm… the necklaces?
AHH who cares? It’s brilliant and gorgeous and we love it. So there.
Moving on to Elie Saab!
Following many of the trends, the line encompassed neutrals and sheers, bold shoulders and one-shouldered straps. It gave off an air of “cool, calm, collected, and crisp”, due to the subdued hues (pale seafoam green gowns, light grey dresses, black coats, and a few light blue numbers – all interspersed between white, white, white) and the minimalist display.
Jessica Stam – the new Michael Jackson? (Look at the glove…)
Anna Selezneva. More furry arms? (see D&G’s pink gorilla arms)
Coco Rocha in a feathered (?) cape and under that stunning hair. Agh. I want to go redhead (but that would look ridiculous).
Simple & minimalist grey dress.
Yasminka Muratovich. Not quite so simple… very D&Gesque shoulders. I like it though; the lace is nice. It’d be better without the monster arms.
Constance Jablonski. Sky blue, not really a colour we’ve seen much on the runways recently… good! Sky blue: not just for spring anymore!
Georgina Stojilkovic (one of my new favourites!) in electric blue. Love this colour – the neckline & shoulders are good too. Who else had that kind… agh.
Michela Kocianova. The jacket on this looks almost like the top half of a kimono.
Beautiful on Belle, more electric blue!
Tatyana Usova. Aaggghhh this is such a gorgeous shade, especially on her skin! And wearable, too. Very Grecian Goddess-y.
Georgina again. Gorgeous crystall-y crisscross & sheer floaty gown.
Vlada Roslyakova. Striking silhouette… and I should figure out how to get my hair to do that…
Nothing too wild, but still simply (literally) gorgeous.
Look(s) du jour:
Irina Kulikova. Duuuude, that’s sweet. More!
Inna Pilipenko. Hehe, furry shoes!
