Badgley Mischka SS12
Mark Badgley and James Mischka would have to try pretty hard to let me down, and it seems they are only getting better. The structural side of things (brocade, shantung, linen, etc) played against their typical use of chiffon and jersey, while the garments were punctuated with bright lemon hues down to pomegranate and marigold.

I hate to say it in the palava that Galliano has put himself in, but there were definite flairs of recent-day Dior Haute Couture (if it were ever on a tighter budget, of course). If you wanted a sense of the show itself, I reccomend the track “Add Ends” by When Saints Go Machine, from the Spring/Summer 2012 soundtrack. Like Candyland on some classy medication. View Post

Alberta Ferretti Fall Winter 2011
Oh, how I love you, thigh high boots (among other shoes). The rainbow-coloured Fall/Winter 2011 collection from Alberta Ferretti show kicked my Milan melodramatics into gear. With a combination of some of the season’s most stimulating hues, barely-there hemlines, and interesting metallic brocade prints, Ferretti’s prerogative was to design something for (stylish) everyone. See the top five looks below! View Post
