New York’s turn is very nearly over, and so as it comes to an end and we start to turn to our home turf of the big LDN, it’s time to mill over the faves of the week. More posts can be expected over the next few days as I feel it’s important that I 1. discuss Rodarte, 2. declare my love once again for Oscar de la Renta and 3. examine Proenza Schouler which is actually going on as I type (ohhh to bare actual witness to it…)
So to begin with, here are 3 of my favourites from New York. 3 girls I wish to be in Spring.
Man this season is good for Tahari. Bold, bright and shiny, this Spring collection spelled future so much I can see billions of fashionable women wondering around New York wearing these dresses with their complimentary Google Glasses and iWatches. There was also full on black and full on white looks mixed up with different textures, forward-thinking cut details and plastic-lookin’ perforated leather. Love. It. All.
Olivier Theyskens always comes up with looks I could literally live in forever and still be comfortable. This time around he’s done it again, with the same dashes of sheer dark wispiness and lovely shades of grey and black, but with added layers (how functional for hotter temperatures). As it’s Theyskens, and it’s me, I didn’t really care about the colourful pieces at the end, but it was a nice touch, I guess.
Narciso has got Summer fabrics pinned down to a tee in this collection. I love the palette, the materials, the silky overtone, the variety of lengths, that he’s wrapped nearly everything in some way or another, and how he has taken the slip dress trend to a whole new level.
