Hey all, happy Pi day! (3.14)
(Ever had pumpkin pie ice cream? It’s heavenly)
The end of fashion week has left us all in a stupor of sorts – we’re all wandering around with a dazed look in our eyes, Starbucks in hand, hair in a perfectly mussed bun, with visions of thigh-high boots, sparkling minis, and outrageous gowns dancing in our heads. Aftershock of sorts; like PTSD for fashion addicts (PFWS: Post Fashion Week Syndrome). In the wake of FW, I still have a few bits to catch up on, namely…
WUNDERKIND, whose collection was highly geometric and visionary and… cool.
Karolin Wolter. Pointy shoulders + gold + structured skirt + ribby leggings.
Constance Jablonski. Hehehe, I’m pretty sure I’m in love with this hat. It reminds me of Gonzo in The Muppets’ Christmas Carol…
Sorry for the crap picture – it was tiny & needed enlarging. Gonzo (left) and Rizzo (right) sporting perfectly worn-in top hats. So the Wunderkind hat is more like a Lincoln hat.
Myf Shepard. A cross between something from a circus and a classic English trench… paired with jockey gloves…
Amanda Laine. Adding some blue into the mixture there…
Deer-printed dress and a floppy hat.
Vlada Roslyakova. More foresty-themed clothes. (Bambi, anyone? Actually, animals have been popping up all over the runways this season:
Minimarket, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, and Erin Fetherston.

Righto, back to Wunderkind.
Hanne Gaby Odiele. Foresty colours now, while retaining those jester tights.
Ali Stephens. Cheetah fierce! Haha idk. Love that bag… actually this whole look has caught my eye for some reason. (The feline on the dress, perhaps?) This sort of takes an all-grey look to a whole new level. (The level of ridiculously cool & chic, yet wearable… for a brave soul…)
Karolin Wolter. More colour here, still forest + circus.
Irina Kulikova. This print reminds me not only of clowns and jesters, but also Alice in Wonderland for some reason. The crazy, slightly distorted checks… hmm. Either that or the wallpaper in some little kid’s playroom. Maybe the carpet.
Ouais… definitely a more eclectic collection, and maybe an acquired taste… but it’s made it onto my List pour la saison. Bravo!
Et maitenent pour les choses aleatoire…
J’ai regardee les films des 1960s… et je reflechis sur les ans. Il a ete un tres bon deacde (haha yay pour Franglais!) Sorry.
I watched some movies from the 60’s, and it’s got me thinking… the 60’s were such a cool time. The clothes (well, mostly – those plaid pants the guys wore, shudder… my dad commented, as we watched a dance scene, “Hey, I had a pair of those!” *cringe* Thanks, dad.) were cool – I love that mod look, except you have to be a twig (hello, Twiggy!) to pull them off. Watching the Twiggy look-alikes run around in short, mod shift dresses with their pixie cuts made me feel oh-so-huge and frumpy. 😛
No caption needed.
Ah, the 60’s…
Wouldn’t you like to be here?

I so want to take a year – or two or three – off and just go places. Europe, Asia, Australia… I’m running out of continents, because – while it’d be cool – I’m not sure I’d really want to go to Antarctica. But yeah. Not just go on a whirlwind tour of Europe – a few weeks – but really spend time in each place, get to know the city (or rural town, I don’t really mind) and really get the feel of the culture. I know, I know, America’s supposed to be the Great Melting Pot, but it just doesn’t have the long history or rich cultural heritage of England or France or Spain, etc… Lord knows how many memory cards I’d need!

Ah, this is turning out to be one of those long, ramblingly random posts. Sorry if it bothers you. Although, hey – I’ve just realised I’ve run out of things (for now).
