Just a few looks from Prada

Prada Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Fei Fei Sun. I love how rich and luxe this look is, from the fur to the deep chocolately brown of the coat – almost reddish – and the desert beige boot. Mmm.

Not okay:
Prada Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Anabela Belikova. This is an explosion of eurghh. And shiny at that.

Slightly better for some reason – nope, I take that back. Still bizarre and ugly:
Prada Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Sigrid Agren.

So other than the bizarre plaids and stripes (which I didn’t even bother including in here because I consider it practically unwearable) and the aforementioned unforgivable sparkles, it was nice. As always, I encourage you to take at look at the rest of the collection yourself.

A few more choice looks from Spring 2009… Etro, Galliano, Erin Fetherston, and Halston [respectively]…

Etro

Etro Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Kasia Struss

Etro Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Mariacarla Bosnocova… semi-sheer white jumpsuits seem to be a staple for summer – i like this one b/c it has pockets. I believe strongly in pockets.

Erin Fetherston

Erin Fetherston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
I like the tank-top cut of this one with the bra under – huge trend, HUGE.

Erin Fetherston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Again, I like the loose tank top cut – that’s the appeal for this one. (Oh, and that fantastic skirt)

Erin Fetherston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

A little pastel tie-dye/marbled effect + bra + turban/headband…  🙂

Erin Fetherston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Ahh, so simply, gorgeously chic. Siri Tollerad.

Erin Fetherston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

So light and airy and springy and feminine… je l’aime. Mais ici…

Galliano!

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Heehee, hat. I’m a sucker for sweet hats.

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
I like the drop-waist on this dress in particular… plus the hat.

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Sheer…

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
…to the extreme!

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

OK, this hat has got to be my favourite in this show. Hands (and hats!) down.

Myf.

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

This whole collection is so full of whimsy, colour, and fun. And really amazing hats.

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

And hey, while we’re at it, let’s talk shoes!

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Lily Donaldson. I wonder if they made the models change shoes, because all those annoying little straps would take absolutely ages.

But oh my GOD, the shoes –

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

John Galliano Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Art. Shoe art, pure and simple (well, maybe not simple, but you get the point).

HALSTON

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Caroline Rideiro.

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

I love the two-belt look.

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

I also love the cut of the neckline and collar – deep V and raised in the back.

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Basic pillar of colour.

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

I love this line – it stands out from the others. It’s just the Halston thing.

Halston Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

The colours are great – muted tones (grey, black, white) against amazingly bright neons (orange, yellow, pink). Love.

Ahh, spring, now moving into summer. Fantabulous. Listening to Disney and not studying for math. (How does one study for math, other than perhaps memorising formulas and equations? Practice problems, maybe, but I never do.)

Pants please:


Harem pants, $38, UO.

Just around the riverbeeeeeend! Teehee. You’re never too old for Disney [or VeggieTales, for that matter]!

Peeling away from the usual elaborate, decadent looks, GV’s fall collection was more simplified elegance than dramatic gowns.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Jourdan Dunn in a lovely coral-y orange coat.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Karlie Kloss in a kape (ha ha ha… not)

Chanel Iman. Coat!

Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Olga Sherer. Metallic drapes and dramatic feathery trains.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Again, seems a tad Russian-influenced.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Huge feathered coat with embellished dress under… or is that part of the coat? Hehe, not the most understated glamour… but gorgeous!

Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Karmen Pedaru. Simple elegance.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Gorgeous, floor-length ostrich feather coat and a peacock-print dress. Die. *sigh* If only I could own one piece of this…

I always listen to classical music whilst blogging… I’ve also started listening to French music (but not that disco-y stuff)… any suggestions?

Look du jour:

Etro Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Etro // Fall 2009. Mariacarla Boscono. Shiny pants and crazy jacket!

Set in a grungy city car park, Lacroix seemed to create a miniature couture show – everything toned down while maintaining that Lacroix look.

Karlie Kloss.

Givenchy Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Gorgeous gowns at the end there. So a few wearable pieces thrown in (for the fashion brave!)

Last, but most certainly not least, LAGERFELD. While others were content to thrive on the past, Lagerfeld focused entirely on the future (save for one straight jacket).

Ah, so… Karl. While maybe not the most practical clothes, it’s still pretty.

Look du jour:

From JAK&JIL: Lily Donaldson, Emmannuelle Alt, and Anja Rubik are susceptible to the rain just like every other fashionista in Paris; the rain has become the bane of every well-heeled (ha!) fashion women – err, people (who knows?) – who’ve flocked there for the shows.

Brand new Alexander Wang F09 boots! (JAK&JIL)

While we’re on the subject of shoes, have you seen these?

sarah jessica parker likes to boot up like a horse.jpg

[Fashionista.com] Martin Margiela split-toe shoes (hoof-boots, perhaps?) at $775 a pop. Yeah.

Ciao!

CHRISTIAN DIOR

Taking keys from Poiret (a WWI-era French designer), Dior’s collection had an Eastern theme: brocaded everything, harem pants, ikat patterns, and Eastern looks in general. Blip form Style.com:

“Happily, there was no sense of straining for a recession solution about it. After treating Dior’s standard suitings to a light, shortened adaptation of Poiret’s hobble skirt, Galliano moved on to paisley-print day dresses and thence to the drapey harems (best in cream satin with a pale beige astrakhan gilet). That opened a neat portal through which Galliano’s romantic, silver filigree Indian-embroidered chiffon cocktail and evening dresses could pass, looking effortlessly pretty. The result: grown-up fare for regular women, editorial-grade styling to appeal to the fashion press, and, in total, a clever feat of simultaneous translation from a well-traveled designer who knows how to reach his global markets.”

Christian Dior Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Turban and mini hobble skirt.

A few sketches.

OK, moving on to LANVIN. (Yay!)
Lanvin’s show – staged on a water-covered concrete runway (to look like an average street) – combined Parisian chic with reality, basically; Albert Elbaz (the genius behind Lanvin) said he “thought with his heart of what women needed from fashion- dresses, suits, blouses coats. Life isn’t just parties and lunches” and gave it to them in the form of knotted dresses, drapes, bias-cut dresses, and simple shapes. The overall tone was ever-so-slightly 1940’s, but only just traces.
