This fall brings on catwalks dashing textures, velvet, embroideries, fur, massive accesories, croc skin, and metallic leather. All incrusted with expensive crystals and bold sequins. It's all about Luxury, sitting in the front row. Or maybe it's just an attempt to revive authenticity. Designers forgot about ordinary materials and bet on the things that last in time, things that are valued generation after another. And maybe in a recession time we all need to hang on to something relevant through its value.
My season's picks:
Alexander Wang's fringed dress and witch-hat. The dress for its versatility and punkish look and the hat for its remarkable shape - it really reminds me of the wicked witch from The Wizzard of Oz.
BCBG Max Azria's luscious leggins. Slippery and decadent.
Balmain kept it's last season flavor and pleased my heart with crystal incrusted party dresses. So flashy you won't need shoes.
Givenchy's embroided dress and feathered sandals. The embroided dress because it's a mix between a rock&roll design and the long lasting ornamental needlework. The sandals because they can put on a burlesque show on their own.
Westwood's drapped dress. Just because it covers the body in a fluid cocoon and follows it's shape.
Stella McCartney see-through dress. because it's the epitome of distinctive elegance. And because it's dangerously sexy.
