Favorite Fashion Moments

The best collections are the ones you can single out and remember, "damn that was a good one". For me, Spring 2010 was a season not to forget. I still dream about it!

Miu Miu - it's the ultimate alice in wonderland! the prints and the beautiful mary jane pumps were what I loved most about it. it had to be an editors favorite too because it was in every single fashion publication.

Viktor & Rolf - an editorial dream yet highly impractical and dreamy. i loved the cutouts and the ballerina style of it. i kind of love most of the things they do and this one just hit the spot.

Prada - how can anyone forget? the beaded dress made so many covers and everyone had chandelier shoe fever. I loved it but couldn't afford it so I bought cheap shoes online and tried to DIY. my laziness > my need to wear chandelier shoes so it never happened.

WHAT TO WEAR NOW: PREFALL

its been raining and after the rain stops it will be september and you know what september means - fashion week in new york! you could be wearing fall collection attire...but if you are sensible you will be wearing pre-fall.
my dream looks:
  • kate lanphear wearing anything leather from alexander wang or helmut lang
  • ADR in an emanuel ungaro or alexander mcqueen dress
  • carine roitfeld wearing exotic skins from celine or anything givenchy
  • taylor tomasi tossed in something orange from phillip lim or a balenciaga fur coat
  • christine centenera in a flashy print dress from proenza schouler or matthew williamson
  • miroslava duma wearing something sleek from the row or lanvin

accents of red

i usually am very adverse to the color red. i relate it to flashiness or bad taste. but this summer, i have been opening up to the color more - I like it as a point color here and there. I am not sure if it is a phase but I have always been keen to Dorothy's ruby red slippers and long skinny red wool pants. I also have a belief that there is are certain shades of red that look luxe or good on your skin tone.

I warmed up to the color much so when last year I saw this image of MIroslava Duma rocking a red-on-red suit. How comfortable and confident does she look? And beginning of Spring I had been pining for a pair of red jeans. I never found the right fit but look at these yet-to-be-released Wranglers, meow! I want now!

resort state of mind

i've been dreaming about my next vacation, which will happen in the end of december. i really want to go someplace warm - the philippines, thailand, india, brazil...not sure if it will pan out but it's something nice to look forward to!

this is what kind of triggered my strong my interest in resort collections and kind of put pre-fall and fall 2011 to the back of my mind.

To start with the strongest collections, No. 21 and Valentino have been so consistently good. I always loved Alessandro Dell'Acqua, but I think his focus on this new label is just spot-on. And to be honest, I like Valentino even more now than what is was before Mr. Valentino retired. Is that horrible? Sometimes others can better represent your vision.

Givenchy's resort is very sportswear (and good sportswear too!) It just proves Riccardo Tisci can do anything (and do it right!)

Lanvin is so romantic and whimsical! Just looking at the images of the collection makes me want to get married in one of his dresses and go on a holiday trip to someplace chic and exotic.

Alexander Wang was good, but his T line was even better. Why didn't he make this line when I was in high school? I would have lived in this collection. Christopher Kane is always bizarre, but a good bizarre. I really hope somebody wears that pink number on the far bottom right corner. A dark brunette, like Rachel Bilson or Camilla Belle.

Casual collections for resort are more believable- who wants to be uncomfortable on a vacation? You could be walking around your feet most of the time doing not-so-glamorous activities. I really love Thakoon Addition and I wonder if Barneys will carry it (if so, what floor?)

But then resort could also mean to some fancy parties to attend and so that is why YSL and Giambattista Valli makes these beautiful floral chiffon maxi dresses.

Pucci and Scognamiglio had great modern dressy pieces that can be worn a night out in town.

Other favorite looks: FUR from The Row, simple slips from Calvin Klein, the perfect dress from Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony...
