Just a quick one here of YSL. Fashion blasphemy though it may be, YSL is sometimes hit-or-miss, piece-by-piece for me. This was one of those shows, although they did have a few pieces which I really liked.

Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Kasia Struss. I love, love, love this silhouette. I’ve designed many looks with it myself – the long, narrow, deep-V coat and a kicky short skirt sticking out. So nice.

Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Sigrid Agren. Same idea, though this one strikes me as a little more severe. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Karmen Pedaru. It doesn’t look it in the photo, but watch the clip and you’ll see, this suit has nice motion to it, which I love.

Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Ella Kandyba. Some – most – of YSL’s white pieces towards the end were rather disappointing to me. I thought they felt too early 1900s-nightgown-y and grandmotherly. This one does a nice job of keeping its freshness despite the puffy sleeves.

And, of course, I have to include Freja Beha Erichsen in the giant polar bear-esque coat. Though coat seems to be an understatement with this beast.  🙂

Stumbled upon this post from the Greyest Ghost – behind the scenes of the Chanel FW 2010 campaign with Abbey Lee Kershaw and Freja Beha Erichsen.

See if you can spot what doesn’t (shouldn’t) belong:

Hint: they’re UGGly.

Why, Vogue, WHY? I cry in desperation. You have been my escape from the UGG- and American Eagle-clad hordes and here… oh, the disappointment.

Ugh. It’s reached that unbearable point in December – the wind is howling around outside at about 50 mph, creaking my windows and whipping the last few desperately clinging leaves off the trees. All throughout today, it’s been alternating between a disgusting slushy rain and icy flakes that have yet to stick to the ground for more than an hour. All that loveliness will no doubt freeze to the ground overnight, though, as it’s going down to 6 degrees.

Yes, 6.

Don’t move to Michigan.

In other news, I fervently apologize for my utter lack of post-age on here. Somehow, I’ve managed to not have any free time… or anything to post about, really… My NaNoWriMo novel is still unfinished, which constantly preys on my mind… That and my sub-par chem and math grades + disgusting, unmotivating weather = zero posts.

My fingers are freezing. I’m inside. The weather is outside. This isn’t fair.

In other news, Pre-Fall 2010 has rolled around once again… ridiculously preemptive, you say? Well, maybe, but such is the way of the fashion world. The Copenhagen climate talks are in full swing, and yet… nothing’s managing to get done. Such is the way of political matters interfering with non-political affairs… e.g., the future of our planet. Ho hum.

In other other news, I’m halfway through The Idiot (Dostoevsky) – it’s proved to be a pretty good one, once you get past the names (and get them all straightened out… I drew a character map, haha).

Ha… and here I was thinking I’d be going to bed early because I didn’t have homework. Turns out Russian lit + impromptu naptime does not = early bedtime.  😛

bon soir, mes cheries!

Never did a post on MaxMara SS 2010… actually, I think I eventually gave up on trying to keep up with FW…

MaxMara: military touches, toned-down hues, cool laceups, silk tanks, loose coats.

Final thoughts: pretty good, though personally I’m not a fan of military styles. The shoes were cool and I liked the rich look of a lot of the fabrics – silk, predominantly. So pretty good, just not to my taste, I suppose.

Hey all. Sorry for my abject neglect of posting or even keeping up with the shows, but I’m totally swamped with school and XC already, plus I’m attempting to make my homecoming dress… aka ZERO free time. The only reason I have time for this is because I’m icing my knee, which is cut and swollen due to a particularly violent fall + a root during a horse-trail run today… fun and fast, until I killed my knee and couldn’t move for a few minutes. Isn’t running great?

In other news, I’m feeling particularly anti-war/patriotic/thinking about Vietnam, etc. Deja Vu All Over Again + Fixin’ to Die rag + The River (live) have been played repeatedly again. I’m writing (or going to write) an article about the ‘forgotten war’, though definitely not with that title.

Ahhh, my knee. Also, I’m tired, so goodnight and happy LFW-ing  🙂

For Spring, Alexander Wang deviated from his tried-and-true route of edgy black grunge and rock apparel and opted for… preppy – if a tad abstract – looks “cheerleaders and jocks should’ve worn in high school” (Style.com). The football gear felt very 40s – I think of the Three Stooges – and the striped sweaters and other prep-wear (semi-sheer sweatervests, etc.) filled in the leftover slots. Leather shorts and wool felt almost fallish to me, which is good, because that’s what season we’re wearing now. Who says you can’t take cues for fall from the spring runway?

Alla Kostromicheva. A ‘football’ look. Or is it baseball? (I don’t know of either who wear capes…)

Final thoughts: at first glance I didn’t really like the collection, but when I browsed through all the looks individually, I ended up liking lots of them – mostly for their uniqueness. No other designer has gone the 40s-football and sporty-prep route for spring… yet… So yes, I liked it.
