I dont think it will be possible for me to devote much time to the shows this season. Here are some of my favorite looks.
Alexandre Herchcovitch -
I've never been one to say no to black boots, but I'm thinking I cant say no to pirate boots again. Looove. I'm liking the accessories more than the clothes here. The dresses are filmy and pretty, but they are also a bit of potato-sac-y. And the florals are my most-despised Grandma-friendly. Laura Ashley Gypsy is not on my list of Fall identities to recreate.
Dramatic midnight blues and burgundies with gold detailing. From boys who only know pretty, this is some heavy Opium-era YSL. I love the bordello wallpaper prints and rich-gypsy styling.
Diane von Furstenberg-
Polished I Love Lucy, but a bit more English countryside. Exaggerated plaids and herringbones, mismatched and overdone. So wearable and so office-perfect.
I guess I like the clothes (those I can make out), but just not very exciting...Simple dresses with quirky details, an occasional shock of color. Black tights and boots - probably how we'll all actually end up looking next season.
From the first photo, I'm in love. Wide leg men's trousers, blouson tailored jackets and blouses, gloves (or the skinny forearms that give the illusion of gloves).
I love the juxtaposition of formal suit fabrics draped and cuved as if they were knit.
Some great jackets, but mainly seriously boring cropped pants and tanks. Very ho-hum and not-needing of a runway show.
Kenneth Cole -
Tippi Hedren suits are never wrong, but havent we seen enough? I do like the dove grey and the somewhat-modern collars, but wearable and pretty, but not necess inspiring.
The body-hugging jersey dresses are nice and a tad bit surprising, but not really "new" - just new for him.
Loooove the colors, sweaters, stripes, and shorts. Not ground-breaking, by any means, but fun. Despise the puffy boots, however.
Beauuuuuutiful dresses. Sixties JackieO, but brought up to date with more sexiness. A prettier Prada. Soon to be seen on every Nicole Richie and Lohan in hollywood.
Lucy Ricardo filtered through 1982. Punk-influenced prom dresses. And the Ultimate in Skinny Pants. I have looooved her last two seasons, so maybe I should hop over to Target to check out her new line there.
Nothing particularly bad, but that 70s style loose that is rather boring and lazy too me. Too much satin and too much fabric. Some nice disco office gear though.
Simple and cool. Not terribly thrilling, but it all looks very comfortable and polished. And this looks like the world's most comfortable sweater:
Glamour 50s girls. Hitchock heroines. Of course it's pretty, of course it's covetable, but is it new?
This sweater/wrap looks nice:
