i’m not sure i have words to describe how much i fell in love with diesel black gold’s collection.
it was sleek and brilliant and i kinda want all of it. the skirts and dresses are lovely – and all
have wonderful little details like pockets and zippers. i could just ramble on and on about
this collection but seriously just go marvel at it yourself. now. thank you.

everything in belstaff’s collection i basically want in my winter wardrobe. it’s like they took
edinburgh and gift wrapped it for me in a collection. (at least that’s what i like to tell
myself!)  the boots (and you should go look at them immediately!) are superb. the colours
are very warm mustards and oxbloods with dark gray/browns and blacks. they also seemed
to have this amazing olive/brown/yellowish green on some of their pieces and i kinda
need to know what colour it is. cause i am rather in love with it.

calvin klein takes its role as the nyc girl’s work uniform seriously. mostly all black with
fun oversized accessories like belt buckles, this season’s collection is full of wantable,
desirable and envied pieces.  wonderfully cut dresses and black coat that every woman
in nyc will want – its a great collection.

costello tagliapietra’s collection was wonderful. it was a brilliant update to the late seventies/
early reagan administration years. beautiful browns, forest greens, and reds with some
toned pops of colour and prints. the dresses were especially lovely – with superb draping
that i would think would flatter almost any girl out there. the cowl sweaters and the tie
waist coat were especially nice and are all modern enough to easily include in ones
fashionable work and going out attire.

alice + olivia are once again wonderfully fun. there are fantastic patterns – stripes as
always but there are really some lovely floral patterns too. (faux?) leather skirts in
bright blues and blacks. it’s a great combination of clueless and 90s plaid meeting
grunge leather and then having some flirty fun with lace and fur. there isn’t really a
single piece i dislike. had i the funds there would be at least a few dress and skirts
i’d be after from this collection.

anna sui is full of colour, pattern and did i mention eye-popping colour? get your 60s mod
girl in gear because unlike the trend of rehashing what seems to be my highschool years
anna sui raced back even further. the greens and the blues of this collection are absolutely
lovely – the patternwork is fantastic but the colour is brilliant.

continuing the bondage wear trend that every other designer seems to have – alexander wang’s
collection is a refreshing, texture brilliant collection. if bondage wear could be sexy and yet
strangely light – this would be it. there are so many pieces from this collection i could have
sketched – definitely take some time to peruse his spring collection.

all i can hope if that betsy johnson keeps having runway shows. it seemed a bit of a best of
collection but still i love the energy of her clothes.

alice + olivia’s collection was a beautiful update to the 50s/60s silhouette. colourful and
fun with the brilliant use of texture and pattern. this would be a fantastic collection
to fill up one’s closet for functionally fun pieces for work.

another large fashion post on friday! that’s when i move to paris fashion week. 😀
