thank you, mr. galliano, thank you.

Haute couture is my anti-drug. There are few things in life I love more than drooling over the Paris couture shows. When it comes to Christian Dior, there is always a puddle around my keyboard. [Sorry, that is totally disgusting.] John Galliano has done it again with this collection. An equestrian edge, Victorian flair and … Continue reading

fashion crush: rochas s/s 2010

I have to admit that I have been a horrible fashion week follower this season. But today, I spent some quality class time checking out collections from Paris and Milan. I am madly in love with the Rochas collection for spring/summer by Marco Zanini. The colors, rich fabrics and floral details are enough to make … Continue reading

oh, and i need scarves from hermes.

Didn’t Kara Saun do a super aviator collection for Project Runway Season 1? Although it was nowhere near as refined as this Hermes collection, I had a total flashback. Anyway. There were five things I completely and totally adored at Hermes. 1. Thigh-high boots. 2. Leather skirts. 3. Fur. 4. Maroon tights. 5. Plaid. Fall … Continue reading

dear chloe, i want to wear all of you.

So chic. I cannot get over the fall Chloe collection. It was Katherine Hepburn meets Gossip Girl meets everything a girl could ever want in her closet. And I know I say I love collections all the time, but that is because really I do. This is what I love, I can’t help myself. But … Continue reading

CHANEL.

The 2009 Fall RTW collection by Karl Lagerfeld for the house of Chanel was completely delightful. I think part of the reason the Chanel show is always a hit- outside of the obviously aesthetically pleasing design- is the presentation. Lagerfeld is all about the show. My personal favorite show was last year’s fall collection that … Continue reading

paris fashion week: overdue review

Hi, it’s me. The worst Paris Fashion Week blogger on the planet. I have like a zillion shows to catch up on, and I feel that taking in these shows is the best way to a) study for my fashion design midterm and b) prepare for my interview on Friday. To begin, it was a … Continue reading

LANVIN.

I probably lust over Alber Elbaz’s collections for Lanvin more than any other. I find myself staring dreamily at the spring/summer ad campaign for extremely long periods of time. I am completely enamored, and would want more than anything a closet full of these exquisite looks. The fall 2009 collection is every bit as wonderful- … Continue reading

heel-less shoes.

Check out these wild shoes from Nina Ricci. Not a single model fell! Insane.  

out with a bang?

Olivier Theyskens leaves on a high note with his last collection for Nina Ricci. I am anxious to see what the future holds for this brilliant mind, as well as what is in store for the Nina Ricci house.      

balenciaga.

I have a deep appreciatin for the Balenciaga design aesthetic and was excited to see that it was the first major show of PFW. I have to admit, I totally expected something space-age with shoulder pads that would top all of the collections thus far. What I did see, a nod to Yves Saint Laurent … Continue reading
