It still feels like summer in South Korea at the moment even though it has started to cool down so it's hard to believe that SS12 is now over and back in the UK I would be well into wearing Autumn Winter clothes. I have had this to post for a while now but this period has been a rejuventating break for me leaving some things behind and enjoying different things in life and have not had enough time to post as I would like. Here's my favourite shows from the Summer just gone.
Dolce and Gabanna
Vegetable prints , cropped tops, 50s skirts and pasta jewellery
Fairy tales, tiaras, merri-go-rounds, feathers and icecream like shades.
Valentino Haute Couture..
Slipper shoes, lace, poetics prints, buttons and bowed sleeves.
Lace, plaited hair, long earrings, neon touches..
Cropped tops, matching two-pieces, studs and aquatic sea theme.
The perfect simple but bold colour palette, art-deco patterns and flapper style dresses.
Scarf printed fabrics, gypsy bohemian feel, printed wedges and coin earrings!!
Meadham and Kirchhoff
I love how Meadham and Kirchhoff really take the art of fashion literally and it isn't just about making a pretty dress that will look pretty on someone! Their clothes are always full of concepts and ideas and their shows are SHOWS!!
I also think so many people who looked at the collection and stated it unwearable would really be surprised how the individual pieces could so easily be incorporated into their looks. Anyhow, I would wear all of it if I ever could be so lucky to get the chance. There can be so much pretense in fashion in the wrong way and designers like MK just remind everyone what fashion is all about!!
I always love Ashish collections. His collections are always so different, edgy and always so wearable. Noone else makes sequins so perfect for the day!!
I find everyone of Mary Katrantzou's collections so inspiring and breathtaking. Every collection fits in with her signature that they are naturally hers but at the same time are so different and full of new ideas that you are surprised and overwhelmed everytime.
Balmain is always so luxurious and wearable. I love the detailing in every collection and how it is always an understated statement!! Always too cool!
I love how Alber Elbaz always makes a statement but it never looks over-the-top or cheap, his collections are both serious and fun and how he so perfectly captured a woman who is feminine, romantic and soft aswell as strong, deep and independent in this collection.
I love how the edges of the pencil skirts actually look like sponge or as if they are made from parts of the coral reef. Every outfit is a perfect manifestation of a water nymph.
Always exciting, feminine, edgy and strong- I love Peter Pillitto creates and art form not just a pretty outfit.
Make love not War!!
Always fun, feminine and sassy!!
Another of my favourite designers!!!
Art Deco, 60's and aquatic references.
Maarten Van der Horst
Ruffles and tropical prints!!
Ethereal and echanting. I love the colour combination of mustard and aquamarine.
