Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2019

Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2019 combined menswear and tailoring, pushing the envelope with the construction- the overlaid contrast lapel, for example, was so uniquely original. Red silky satin brocade, black pinstripe and solid black suiting with contrast silk satin sleeves, and white shirting.  I love the proportions: the length of the vests, the sleeve cuffs, the…

Manish Arora Fall 2019

Manish Arora’s Fall 2019 collection really would benefit from editing because some of the garments and accessories are really cool but may be overlooked within the hoard of design splayed onto the runway: it’s an overdose of color, print, texture and fabric selection. The object bags are amazing- tea pots, sharks and fish, vehicles… The…

Dior Fall 2019

I loved  Dior’s Fall 2019 collection’s embellished skirts, many on tulle with butterfly motifs made of feathers, sequins, and print overlaid with sheer black wave textured fabric. The black and white ink print dress  and contrast dot and gingham skirt were also charming.  I  felt as if the gingham flannel jackets, hats, coats and skirts-…

Moschino Fall 2019

The show stealer this season: object bags! The collection expanded upon previous spray paint and Fresh cologne bottles and phone cases to include bags that look like Windex, toothpaste, champagne, slot machine, cash register, hair spray, a blow dryer, dish soap, a quarter, and an iron…I love the campy ironic and nostalgic aesthetic Jeremy Scott…

Who The Hell Are Bloggers?

Do bloggers have validity in discussing and critiquing the work of others?  Given anyone can blog and may not have any credentials- perhaps even little or no education on the topic itself- I think the writing speaks for itself. Of course, there are instances in which bloggers don’t know what the hell they’re talking about,…

Grammy’s Red Carpet Fashion

Worst Dressed: Girl Crush I hate her BALLS-gown…but it took balls to wear. Best Dressed: Demi Lovato in Balmain The Weirdest Dressed: The Grammy’s have long been an event known for its fashion- good, and bad.  We saw the evolution from casual and nonchalant to more appropriate attire hitting the carpet…well, overall.  People are usually…

Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2017

The Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2017 runway show started off with fashion MPD, a pink gold and black New York graphic and zipper detail pullover and matching skirt, a Pretty Woman dress, pop art, photo-prints, collars and leashes…it got a little “X-Rated.” In Scott fashion, there were nineties and bondage undertones contrasting Nickelodeon references. The show…

Thom Browne Spring/Summer 2017

Quirky, cute, retro chic, pretty and pastel- the Thom Browne SS17 collection was a fresh take for the designer. It’s geek chic, there’s something animated about this take on menswear turned womenswear.  Um…but what the hell is that? A quilt?  The styling and beauty look also added to the modernity and elevated the runway show. …

Junya Watanabe Spring/Summer 2017 Menswear

The Junya Watanabe SS17 menswear collection stood out mostly for its graphic prints and contrasting sleeves on leather jackets and coats- or visa versa with leather sleeves on blazers. Something about the eye graphic print and halftone print face t-shirts look dark, the first of which reminds me of Dali for some reason, the later…

Dsquared2 Spring/Summer 2017 Menswear

The Dsquared2 Spring/Summer 2017 Menswear collection started off with platforms, flared leg pants, muscle tees, fedoras, and chain necklaces. Bowler bags- some studded, studded neoprene bombers, utilitarian pocketed pullovers with contrasting leather, destroyed denim backed jeans, metallic knits, leather cuffs, patches,and contrast sleeved moto jackets with red trim and olive green sleeves characterized the collection….
