NYC Fall 08 VI

1. Oscar de la Renta:

I love this. It's so sophisticated and the jewel tones are really beautiful. I would wear this all the time, those trousers are amazing.

2. Peter Som:

The weird thing about this look is how un-fashion show it looks. If you saw this model wearing this out on the street you'd say, wow, what an eclectic woman! You would never say, wow, she's wearing head to toe designer, which I think speaks great for the clothes and the stylist.

3. Thakoon:


I think Thakoon and Peter Som were riding similar wavelengths this season, but Thakoon's vision seemed a little less "natural styled" and more fashion-y. This collection also reminded me a lot of the Prada geek chic collection from the late 90's that I am ALWAYS referencing. The flower prints are kind of ugly, the colors are kind of ugly and the prints don't match, but everything is actually really pretty. I will scan some images from that collection later on this week, because I have a feeling that it's going to be a really good point of reference for fall. I am also in love with the top in the second image, I love stripes!

There is something of a frumpy air going on in all the collections imo...

Yeah, I'm smelling some kind of grunge-esque return....
