Marc Jacobs S/S10

September 15, 2009 § 2 Comments

Marc Jacobs is tired of seeing young girls wearing black and studs. “It’s not such an individual expression,” he said after his terrific Spring show, the underlying message of which could’ve been, duh, be an individual. “If last season was a trip back in time to the eighties,” he continued, “this was a trip to the theater, the ballet, the opera.”

As much as I agree with what MJ said and the idea of a collection’s inspirations were taken from “the theater, ballet and opera” sound this collection really didn’t float my boat. To be honest my MJ boat sunk after the F/W 08 season (S/S08 collection was superb, remember the missplaced heels? Real ‘stacked’ shoes? And hand bags stitched onto totebags?)… But there’s always a little speck of hope in me, (because I loved Louis Vuitton last season)

I found it so hard to find anything I like in this whole 52 slide collection, it was just all too ‘The King and I meets Madam Butterfly’…

Jason Wu S/S10

September 13, 2009 § 3 Comments

This is probably my favourite collection so far (ok fine I’ve only gone through 4 collections so far). Jason Wu is one of those designers that really caters for the young and mature women! The strapless blue and black, dress with mesh that’ll appeal to the 20 somethings and the enless aray of cardigans and more modest dresses (especially the white and grey, belted dress) that suit the 40+. His fame as soared after Mrs Obama wore his white, one shouldered creation to the Inaugural Ball early this year.

Though I have the say, the hair and make up… a bit too (Daphne) Guinness? Uhh a bit too… Dolce last season? I think peachy, pink makeup would have suited not only the clothes but the backdrop  of the show as well. Punchy, black lips and 70′s terracotta blush look so much more powerful with a plain white or any solid colour runway. This runway was Versace meets Chanel’s Russian collecions meet De La Renta.  But the whole collection was inspirational none the less.

BCBG S/S10

September 12, 2009 § 2 Comments

I’ve always been a massive fan of Herve Leger(which Max Azria also designs for) and this season Max has brought a little bit of Herve into BCBG. I use to think of BCBG as an average, ‘young hollywood’, ‘defusion’ brand. The bandage dresses and interesting prints in this collection changed my mind, well, I still think it’s very ‘young hollywood’ but maybe not so average. I’d discribe it as a brighter, less grungy version of Alexander Wang’s last collection.

September “I want list”

September 4, 2009 § 7 Comments

Ahh it’s september, and I’m protesting spring colours by choosing black, white and grey things to lust after.

Butterick pattern 4790. This is vintage pattern is soooo beautiful and the wrap style is so uniquely divine!

UPDATE: Ok after Lily told me this was an ill fitting pattern and extraordinary hard to make. I googled it and she was right, so far anyone who’s made it and posted it online has been unsuccessful or delusional… I guess the reason why so many people want to try is because of the cover illustration…

Fendi peekaboo bag. What can I say, I’m in desperate need of a new bag.

Lanvin pearl necklace. It just shouts ‘Blair Waldorf’ and I can’t wait until season 3.

Louboutin Lolo ballerina pump. I’d get them if they weren’t so high! BTW I setteled on plain, black leather Decollette.

Luella Winston jacket. Again, another Gossip Girl inspired lust…

McQueen bi-coloured pumps. I’m not a fan of the peep toe style but the shoe looks so amazing, it’s a wrap-around shoe!

McQueen knuckle-duster clutch. This is genious! It’s  set of rings and a clutch all in one!

Preen hound’stooth power dress. I would LOVE a bodycon dress but well, I don’t have the body for it and this is such a perfect dress. It’s tight and bodycon on top and a flattering peplum/bubble style skirt.

Red Valentino ruffle blouse. Blouse of the month.

Red Valentino lace dress. I really love the top part of this dress and not the pencil style skirt, if only it had a flounce skirt I would consider it the perfect LBD.

Thread Social, bow sweater. I AM SO MAKING THIS!

And a BlackBerry Bold! I’ve always wanted a Blackberry but never found an appropriate plan and it was a case of ‘out of site out of mind’. Well until now, my mum has a Blackberry and maybe it’s because I’m delusional but I swear she is rubbing it in my face! Sending txts, checking her emails, and playing brickbreaker for an insane amounts of time!

 

It’s not like I’m wishing for a string of princess cut diamonds, though, that’ll be pretty awesome too

What are you lusting after this month?
