November ‘I want list’

October 28, 2008 § 2 Comments

Oh yes, it’s that time again; dream time.

1.       Sergio Rossi metal embellished sandals. I love these, they are the step after strappy sandals and before gladiators (ew), aka the perfect balance. Isn’t the metal detail to die for? I think they’re made for self obsessed people who are always trying to find a reflective surface to look at themselves.

  

 

2.       Calvin Klein bra and hipsters.  A girl cannot ever have enough shoes or underwear. This set is adoorrwwaaable (adorable)! The purple color is sweet and summery and I love lace!

 

3.       Copic markers 72 set B. I am going through a phase most artists/illustrators and designers go through, the ‘marker phase’.  I was told I had to buy them for my up and coming fashion illustration class so I decided to try them in Vis Com class and they are fabulous!

4.       Dior duchess coat. I loved this collection but this jacket seems so regal and glamorous. The beading and colour gives that extra Dior-ness about it.

5.       Dior tie front belted dress. This, I discovered while late night browsing on Neiman Marcus. It is the perfect 40’s style dress, though I’m not favoring the colour, the style, simplicity and length is just perfect.

6.       Navy Escada convertible hobo bag. This is simple and classic, the color isn’t to plain and the style is fun and functional. I need a bag like this (convertible), so, if you see something like this for  a lower price, give me a buzz.

7.       Herve Leger bondage dress. I feel in love with this at the show and wooohoooo it’s on net-a-porter. My favourite feature of this dress is the illusion it gives (the dark band on the waist).

8.       Miu Miu cut out dress. From afar this just looks like a fairly colorful shift dress but actually, the green bits are cut out!

9.       Oscar De La Renta dress. I couldn’t decide between this or the on above. They both have the summery green colors and are contrasted. This one seems a bit more ‘me’. What do you think?

10.   Valentino blouse. I also found this while late night browsing on Neiman Marcus. This blouse is perfect for all my skirts!

11.   Giorgio Armani beaded peeptoe pumps. These are perfect for any occasion, whether a formal event worn with a gown or a casual soiree with tights. Hmmmmm…

A girl can dream huh?

Sonia Rykiel ss09

October 9, 2008 § 4 Comments

All hale Sonia Rykiel I say! This celebratory collection was done in celebration for her 40th (anniversary of the brand not her age), as always the clothes were absolutely fabulous and free. Sonia Rykiel (brand) is fun and comical without looking ridiculous. This collection is classic Sonia, flowing, soft knits, feminine ruffles and whimsical gowns. Per usual the models danced down the runway, doing there own thing, Irina (Lazareanu) looked like she was on crack (probably was), but Natasha Poly looked adorable shaking her non-existent booty. The show looked like so much fun the first part was designed by the Rykiels and the second was a surprise collection of 30 looks designed by other designer for the show like Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, the Rodarte sisters and many more. One day I’d be just as awesome as Sonia and have a party just like this one! Enjoy my two collages, one is her collection the other is the surprise collection.

Valentino ss09

Aww poor Alessandra. I really do love her designs but they just don’t fit under the label of “Valentino”. To me, Valentino is all about, glamour, feminine sex appeal, bright colours and shiny, glittery fabric. But Alessandra’s Valentino is muted, sofy, drape-y, feminine demure-ty, I love that look, just not for Valentino. I would praise this collection if it was under Alessandra’s name but it’s not… I hope one day she will have her own label. I’m not surprised that she’s been “dismissed” from the house of Valentino, I wish Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli all the luck and hope they bring the bright colours and ‘hardcore’ glamour back. But I applaud Alessandra for bringing the flat evening shoe into view.

Christian Lacroix ss09

I’m a big fan of Lacroix’s flamboyant colourful designs and this season was so different. There were colours, frills, embroidery, drapes and different print. “Fun, flirty, short, colourful all those things that make a girl happy” Tinsley Mortimer (or I think that’s what she said). I love the shoes too, bows, anklets, the colours, they really are the shoes that go from day to night. I love you Christian Lacroix!

Chanel ss09

When I first saw the pictures of this collection on style.com I was in a MSN conversation with Lisa, and briefly this is how it went:

Lisa:

…New shows are up!

Angela:

Really?

Lisa:

Yeah.

Angela:

…Have you seen Chanel?

Angela:

Same old, same old

Lisa:

Yeah, I didn’t bother

Angela:

Mehhhhhh 

So, I wasn’t too impressed, but after looking through the collection again on the train this morning (on my phone) my thoughts were totally different. I realised I love the “same old, same old” of Chanel, the tweeds, black and white and simple looks. There was nothing ground breaking but it’s chic and classic and so wearable. But I had one problem, the leather ‘Chanel shopping bags’, I can just see in, in 2 months everyone is going to be trying to imitate it. Oh, I cannot wait…

PS.

What’s with the extended interview with Australian Vogue’s Kirstie Clements? Since when was she big on the scene? Anyway, I’ll be discussing this month’s Aus Vogue in the coming days.

Where Am I?
