Top 10 Fall 2009

Another season come and gone. It felt like it dragged on forever, right? A lot of times it felt like designers got too worries about the economy and sent out really boring looks that were a total bummer, but still, there were some pretty incredible moments. Here are my top ten favorite shows of the season.

1 Jil Sander
Taking minimalism into the 21st century.
2 Alexander McQueen
Passion. Passion. Passion.

3 Marc Jacobs
The only 80's rehashing worth a damn.
4 Dries Van Noten
Beautiful, bold colors in simple shapes. Chic, classic dressing.

5 Christopher Kane
Sheer dresses with graphic details redefine modern femininity.
6 Rodarte
Natural, organic futurism. Until now, I was sure it was impossible.

7 Bruno Pieters
Strict, severe sensuality.
8 Wunderkind
Totally won over by their amazing prints.

9 Missoni
Cozy turned insanely sexy.
10 Maison Martin Margiela
Slouchy asymmetry : the new avant-garde.

I liked that Bruno Pieters show a lot.

I was a bit on the fence about including Missoni, but I guess I reaally did like it. Haha

I really liked Rodarte, and Wunderkind was really nice too. I have to admit, the lips at McQueen kind of distracted me from the amazing clothes.

i agree, but no Rei, tao, or junya?

In-tree-gue: You know, I wasn't really into Junya or Tao this season... Comme was the only one in the running, had I made a top 20 or top 15 it probably wouldve snuck in, but as much as I loved some of the stuff there this season, i guess i liked other stuff more. haha.

That Jil Sander is like a Tilda Swinton for the masses...I love it. Could never pull it off, but I love it.
