This collection was a little too mature (ok, maybe boring) for my taste, but there was some cool stuff. I love the oversized details on this dress. The two-toned sheer hosiery thing is horrific. Really.
This is giving me a total Comme des Garcons vibe for some reason. Must be the print, right? Anywho it's a little nutty and I love it. (Are we gonna keep doing the clear shoe thing? I liked it at Fendi, but come on Karl, you gotta have more tricks up your sleeve than this one).
Jumpsuits a la Chanel. Awesomely extravagant.
So Alesandra Fachinetti is out at Valentino, which I'm sure made the mood at this show totally weird. Honestly, I think the houses today are too fire-happy. How can you fire someone after like, 2 collections? I mean sure, maybe she wasn't getting the BEST reviews (myself included), BUT I dunno, it seems a little hasty. I think new designers should sign contracts that at least guarantee them 5 collections before they get fired. I think five is a good number for proving yourself. Anyways, having said all that, this is the only look I liked from the show (HA! the irony!), it's casual and elegant and sort of weird in its straightforward-ness. I love that the model is wearing flats with it.
Loved these two graphic dresses from Requiem. Very chic and simple and only slightly subversive. Would rock both of them with Docs.
4. Rue du Mail:
I'll admit that the reason why I love this so much is that the bodice makes me think of some weirdo evil Mickey Mouse as seen through a Kid Robot toy.
