Believe it or not, it is now time for many of the big fashion houses to debut their pre-fall 2009 collections. The images are slowly beginning to trickle onto the internet, and at this point it’s mostly only women’s wear that is available to view.
Unfortunately, so far there has not been much to be excited about. The vast majority of designers are sending models down the runway in boring, overly feminine, ruffley, hour-glass dresses that look as though they are torn from the pages of a pattern making 101 text book or maybe an Anthropologie calalog from 2004. I’m ok with feminine, but I hate hate hate women’s wear that has zero edge and looks like it is maybe most appropriate at a sweet sixteen party.
1.) Omg. It’s like Rei Kawakubo and Jil Sander had a love-child and wrapped it in a Missoni blanket from 1996. I love the matching gloves and tights. Now all she needs is a creepy coordinating knit bondage mask ( I kid, I kid…)
2.) That blouse is amazing. I love the way the graphic pattern just slightly does not allign along the front closures, creating a startling, seemingly mathematical effect. This theme is mimiced in the styling of the jacket and skirt, which is fantastic as well.
3.) Wierd hippie/flapper/tribal/star trek dress? Sure, why the hell not…
4.) Ok, yes, I agree… This one is styled just a smidge like it was torn from the pages of a Lucky magazine….but…it’s kind of…texture…you know?
