loose lips

Eley Kishimoto-- YES! this collection gave me everything I've been looking for, it was playful, but not banal, different but not like a 'theatre kid who sits outside and talks to a tree during lunch' kind of different just a refreshing kinda different. I also love how they played with patterns and different colour combinations.

Um, hello decent pattern clash! Very nice, even though it has that 80s feel, it wasn't 80s in an obvious way.
This reminds me more of something that a daytime talk show host might of worn, that days headline story being something dramatic like "twins separated at birth discuss the long journey to finding one another at last; sub story being: STAGE MOMS: CRAZY OR JUST "MISUNDERSTOOD"? also some paternity test findings revealed for good measure. or maybe a kindergarten teacher, yeah I could totes picture that.... okay moving right along....

not much to say but: adorbz!

I made a note that what I loved about this was the necklace: so cute, non?

patterns = YAY

I'm not sure how I woulda felt about this if I saw it alone as a separate, but the complete look that was presented makes me want it, idk. Its like when you walk into a boutique and see a look on a mannequin and say, "oh, that's cute" and buy it in hopes that it looks just as good on you as it did on the mannequin? but you take it home and realize it was kinda all wrong for your body shape and just a NO in general? yeah that's how this makes me feel...

love this, they really went crazy w/ the cuts of the clothing

That top would kinda would be perfect for an Americana editorial in like Teen Vogue or something, but I'll always be a sucker for a chunky heel & sock pairing a la Marni resort '10 (I still love that collection, now I compare everything to it)

chiseled out of metal off the coast of Japan

J. Mendel S/S 10: So. Fucking. Beauteous. and delicate and lovely. I want these clothes to be me. am I making sense? I hope so.

Katharina Trudzinski: a really talented artist I've come to love, besides her lovely paintings I would recommend her sculpture installations, I'm not even sure why I love her work so much. It just gives me warm fuzzies (don't ask, sometimes my nonsense is lost upon even me)

(two things and a title that have absolutely nothing to with each other, I guess I love being random)

The handling of a heart's a very delicate art because it's paper thin

There are alot of things that attract me to this brand, one being the use of different fabrics, and I dig how you can see creativity going into one basic dress. By doing all kinds of variations you can tell there was some thought process that went into the creating of the finished product. You know how many times you see essentially the same thing like cutouts or something in one designers collection, then you see it done again by another designer and it's always interesting to see how someone else takes the same idea and puts their own spin on it? well with Bibhu Mohapatra you get that, but in the same collection. and I really dig that.

beautiful music when champagne flutes click

Jeremy Laing has been my most 'saved in inspiration file on computer'/ /most 'OMG I love that' collection.
Do you know how hard it was to narrow it down to these 5?? very. I have damn near all 21 looks.
I even pondered the thought of putting every single one in this post. (just so I could fangirl and describe in detail why I think it's awesome)
I will make a note of an undeniable fact, the collection did have a Rick Owens vibe, but not in a copycat kinda way.... So its all good, he was more like paying homage to that way of design, which is what JL is good at, and anything that is Rick Owens esque is a win.

So glad to see something different, I've been reviewing what seem like the same collectionz for like 4 days straight. Towards the end of fashn week the collections sort of blend togeths in my mind and you can't remember if you saw the talon heeled shoe at Siriano or A Wang (clearly I know those were at Siriano, but still)
It has been difficult to find things that are interesting -and most importantly without a bore- in this sea of
“I took inspiration from: *insert obvious cliche like *beauty for the sake of beauty* or *fashion for the sake of fashion* or *HEY DID YOU HEAR THE 70s ARE COOL AGAIN*”... So I commend Jeremy Laing for not adding to this stigma.

Just that PRO

You gotta love it. It's impossible to hate it.

Jeremy Laing. SO DOPE.

Cynthia Rowley

Cynthia Rowley described her collection as, "something that's both scary and pretty" it really intrigues me that a designer, whose job is to in a way make a girl forget about all the scary things in life (imo fashion is like an escape) would base a collection off of something scary. Now maybe I'm looking too far into this but if you think about it, it's kind of genius.

When I first saw this look I uttered, "I dig this alot" I didn't even have to examine the whole outfit, it was a tad involuntary, and I think that's how a person should feel about their clothing... if you don't make guttural sounds in approval and nod yer head rapidly than the designer did not succeed.

Oh my gosh isn't this stunning? I don't know if it's the colour palate (purple is my favourite colour, what's yours?) or the fact that this reminds me of an eerie midnight sky in October... or something, ugh so yeah... this has a bit of backwards unconventional whimsy going on, which is very refreshing.

I have a feeling this shade of blue would have looked even better in person, so for the sake of argument, I'm going to say: THIS PHOTO DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE.

What makes this dress stand out are the details, like the cute almost utilitarian brass buttons, and the hint of sheer at the bottom hem. (and those glasses don't hurt either, gimme!)

This is very school girl esque and even reminiscent of something a Tim Burton character might wear, which adds to that "pretty and scary" theme, every time I see it I can imagine someone being on their deathbed or even in a coffin wearing this dress, what can I say, I'm a HUGE fan of macabre.

I love the little slashes on this dress they give me the impression as if she was running through an overgrown forest to escape impending doom and her dress got caught by twigs, or maybe the forest was attacking her like in The Village, or something... ugh yeah, I LOVE those sunnies!
