I know that I should probably just stop with my reviews of New York Fashion Week when it's already Milan Fashion Week, but guess what? This is my blog so I can do whatever I want to do with it. I can take it out for lunch if I want. I can hide it underneath your bed if I want. I can even take it for a walk if I want to. With that being said, let's talk about the remains of NYFW before moving on to the London Fashion Week that ended a week ago or something.
When it comes to celebrity-designed labels, my brilliant instinct always leads me into thinking that it's really a design team that did all the work behind the collections and celebrity X slams his/her name onto everything. Bam! No work involved. Just another way to earn some extra cash so celebrity X can sit on his/her ass all day and waste money on things like a $34,000 backpack.
Ever since I know how to walk and talk, I worship Donna Karan. Not just because she's a brilliant human being, but because she has this way of working with fabrics and turning it into something magical. Take, for instance, the fall 2012 collection
Apparently, designers decided that doing florals for fall is the next big thing. Like Nusardel(
I know you're having a "Florals? Groundbreaking." right now, but I'm just in love with Suno's print-blocking assembles. You know, putting together zillion prints while making it tasteful at the same time? Apparently, designers thing that not only do they need to do print-blocking for two seasons, but they would also mix in florals. But what I really like is the progression of the collection, from cheerful, almost-summery prints to darker, more somber ones. Almost like a fairy tale minus the fairies.
