Dark colors, funnel necks, deep v-necks, puffy sleeves: austere, yet dramatic. A sort of unromantic renaissance look.
Eccentric Edwardian British Birdwatcher Murderess. All feathers and ruffles and tweed (and plaid!) (and lace!). A little spooky and a little magical - goes nicely with my Edward Gorey planner.
And how cool is a hologram-Kate appearance???
Again with the austerity! Sharp, buttoned-up-sexy suits and coats. And nurse hats. Ok.
The uszh Chanel suit, with mini skirt and thigh-high boots this time. Great, but I could go the whole rest of my life without seeing a man wear one. Especially with the ruffle shirt. Ick. Big belts, brooches, Edwardian collars, plaid, blah blah blah. I did like the ribbon-corseted dresses and jackets and the stained-glass-looking beading and the black hair ribbons.
Borderline-boring, but Chloe always manages to make things look cool (and, in this case, seriously comfy). Loose jumpers that I know I've seen on 'Eight is Enough', mixed with modern baby dolls and pin-tucked and belted work clothes. Missing the usual flash and must-have-or-die piece.
The black and red cuts and 80s style harsh glamour, on this side of edgy rather than Dynasty though. Strapless paisleys and little mini-dresses bring on a chic-er and less-done 60s vibe.
Comme des Garcons-
More freaky headcoverings! Over-sized coats, ruffles, men's trousers, simple white oxfords (shirts and shoes, actually). I adore this sweater (but draw the line at wool panties):
Ok, I've discovered an issue on the Brogue site- they've mixed the show with the Kenzo show. I think the sweater is Kenzo. The runway changes after page 2 on Comme and also, I was certain the designer is Japanese.
Still pretty, but as per everything else this season, more sedate. Beautiful black and white laces, sometimes with burgundy and gold accents.
New Look dresses and coats look right out of Hitchcock. Dresses swirled across the body - sometimes demure and sometimes disco - and more feathers (evidence, the runway)!
An evermore modern take on the sexy equestrian. Supple leather dresses, cut-up Fair Isle sweaters, asian silk jodhpurs, fur capelets, and a riding crop or two.
American history as told through hats and washed out Americana. There's some Quaker buttoned-up, some Johnny Reb tatters, denim of course, prairie skirts, and even some Native American blanket prints, and a carpetbagger-turned-dress or two, but I cant say that I'm too excited.
More scary headcovers!!! Aaaak! Paratrooper-punk-chic, with totally covetable jackets and fishtail skirts.
Oh wow. Most of the season's key elements, with a needlepoint/grandmother vibe.
Is this virtually the same sweater as above by Comme des Garcons??
I like this one better, though:
Ok, I've discovered an issue on the Brogue site- they've mixed the two shows. I think the sweater is Kenzo. The runway changes after page 2 on Comme and also, I was certain the designer is Japanese.
Sexy sexy severe. I would almost guess them to be Gucci.
A lot of satin and rollergirl and explain the netting and furniture tags?
Mix of hard(er) and soft - tulle and corduroy. Making his pretty perfect girl a little more reckless. More knickers (yay!).
Decadent knitwear, rosette dresses, the most beautiful hair on the runways, more sexy cobweb laces, black and neutrals have never looked so un-boring.
