Jean Paul Caultier. “The frenchest French” had a marvelous collection.
Many people thought that Balmain would lose its pzazz without Decarnin, glad to see they were wrong.
Gareth Pugh has developed a very recognizable handwriting.
Elie Saab was very versatile, good to see different looks other than just the usual evening dresses.
Kanye West. This time there was no circus leading up to the show so I wasn’t even sure there was gonna be one. I’m impressed either way. The backpack are insane.
Haider Ackermann being his good-old self.
Rick Owens. Love the new jacket shapes, the new color scheme, the immaculate draping. Would expect nothing less.
Celine. Feels kinda lean compared to some previous seasons but it’s obvious zippers are gonna have a moment next fall.
Balenciaga. Beautiful shapes and textures.
Bless Stella McCartney – women are allowed to have hips again.
Nina Ricci. Looks like a vampish Lolita from the 30′s stepped through the time machine.
Givenchy. Looks like pre-fall was a good indication of the direction this season was going. What else to say but that it’s amazing.
Yves Saint Laurent. Stefano Pilati sure went out with a (fetish) bang. I’ll never get why he’s so unappreciated when his work for YSL has always been constantly beautiful.
Ann Demeumeester never disappoints.
Viktor&Rolf - the undisputed kings of lasercut.
Erin sporting some Low Luv and an owl.
Acne Pre-Fall 2011
McQueenadillos still take my breath away.
Really love what’s going on here with the layering of a structured corset and a sheer sweater.
Sasha Pivovarova in Thomas Wylde’s SS campaign.
Frida Gustavsson walking for Victor & Rolf
Minimalism is the way to go this spring.
At this point, pretty much anything sheer will grab my attention.
