Alexandre Herchcovitch was toned down, with loud prints in more or less prim cuts. The accessories, however, were another story, with models struggling to keep their bangles around their wrists and more than one name brand model almost falling from his cut-out heel shoes.
Nothing. I have yet to see anything that has sparked any sort of interest and/or passion. It is all so BORING!!
btw, love your photos on style.com – I’m not sure if it is a good thing or a bad thing – people being dressed better and wearing more interesting clothing then the items being shown.
Not that I despise simplicity – which seems to be the direction that most designers are taking, but I would like to see a little creativity/ innovation. It seems like I have been looking at the same garmets for the past 3 seasons.
sabyasachi is the most exciting show i’ve seen so far. exciting as in new/different ideas. his use of color and print is refreshing. can’t remember who said this (somewhere on a blog, or in comments, somewhere), it seems like everyone is copying/riffing off of chloe, and as much as i love chloe, it’s time to move on.
jenni kayne also – very sophisticated use of color, and well-cut. i also liked yigal azrouĆ«l (joining the chorus) (tho some of his stuff falls in the chloe-redux camp).
does anyone understand the ny times’ love for alice roi? they have a video commentary/interview on her posted already – their first piece on ny fashion week – in which eric wilson fairly swoons over her stuff, much as cathy horyn did a few months earlier. i see what he’s saying on a very philosophical level, but when it comes down to the clothes themselves, i don’t find anything appealing about them.
Tierd of seeing the same stuff done in different ways. The highlight for me was the unique jewelry by Coomi. went and got myself a few pieces and get more comments and admiring looks than I have ever got with clothes.
