ALC F/W 2012
ALC was absolutely my favorite collection from London Fashion Week. Mulberry was a close second – but everything here just looks effortless and perfect – and makes me realize I need leather pants.. like need.  PLUS maybe I’ll try some sort of updated printed matching twin-set… maybe…. maybe….

antonio berardi – f/w – 2011

Friday, February 25th, 2011

last season, i was introduced to the antonio berardi collection ( you know – by simply clicking on a random designer i hadn’t heard of on style.com ) and liked it so much that i made a point to find him again. although this collection is very different from what he showed last season – i love how it has evolved. the black and navy lace – paired with neon green shoes – actually really inspiring. i also love the coats. it seems like everyone is doing their version of a big – boxy – fur coat – and his, the long gray number with ‘patchwork-esq’ placed fur (i think it is layered over another jacket) is a great interpretation that might not leave us feeling like a big rectangle.

burberry prorsum – f/w – 2011

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

uhhhh what’s with the lack of separates in this collection? i mean – yes, it is about winter, so the emphasis on outerwear is sensible – but i mean, really? really, really? it’s like that was all there was. even so, i did manage to find a few furry coats that are sure to keep someone warm when the snow comes a-fallin’.

erdem – f/w – 2011

definitely not as feminine as spring – which is to be expected – but i love it never the less. i really love the idea of printed tops paired with printed trousers or long skirts. even though it all matches – it doesn’t looks boring.

mulberry – f/w – 2011

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

didn’t care for their ready-to-wear last season, but mulberry sure did step it up – channeling a cool british girl vibe. i love the printed dresses – felted jackets – and most of all the simple sheer-ish long black dress at the end. nothing revolutionary – but still very nice.

OH, Hello London – Christopher Kane

You know what is funny.. i bet this spring we will see editorial table settings and table pieces being sold in these neon floral laces and meshes. i mean.. it is nothing new… but this spring i think it will be big. it is just so amazing how fashion translates into so many different mediums.. i believe fashion really sets the tone for so many creative industries… Anyways.. we’ll have to wait and see about my prediction… but read it here… i’m calling it now. although i don’t love the head-to-toe looks of this collection (maybe i will when i look at it again in month or so) i think they are going to break into separates really well. i mean.. those plastic-y looking floral lace pieces are going to all over the editorial pages. see more from this christopher kane show at style.com

The thing i love about fashion, is never-fail, every season you get such a diverse mix of perspectives from designers about how women should dress. you can be one girl on monday, and then someone totally different on sunday. in this collection, i feel like these dresses are going to be all over the pages of my favorite magazine.. lula. so girly, sweet, and fanciful.. i could be an Anastase girl.. on tuesday maybe. see more at Charles Anastase at style.com

OH, Hello London – Antonio Berardi

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

i’ll admit, id never heard of Antonio Berardi until this season. i was browsing style.com (of course), looking for new designers, and fell in love.. the colors, the silhouettes, the wispy-ness. don’t you just love how he mixes the soft pink, rosette dresses with a light “army green” structured jacket.. i mean it’s obvious.. but not overboard.. just right i think. i can’t wait to see what he does next season..

OH, Hello London – Acne

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

the mix of textures and proportions are so right here. and the mostly neutral palette sprinkled with pops of red and navy (which is technically a neutral.. but not really when shown with all the neutrals here) keep things interesting and exciting look to look. yeeps… look two is amazing, right.. by far my favorite? thanks again style.com for all your amazing coverage
