Goodbye to studs, hello to embellishment. Gone are the hard, sharp, geometric lines of last season. Instead designers collections were jam packed full of lace, ruffles, draping and flounce. Everything i love to wear infact. At Burberry, clothes were in the most exquisite-good enough to eat- 'candy floss' pastel shades- lilac, soft blue and mint green- all of which helped in securing it as one of the best shows at Fashion week. Oh yes.
See, i can't pull of the 'tough girl' look, complete with Dr Martens, leather jackets doning studs and spikes- if i were to step out of the house dressed like that id look like mutton dressed as lamb. My personal style is much more feminine, and vintage inspired. I love to wear tea dresses and am addicted to florals. Much more of a pretty over power aesthetic. Of course, not to run the risk of looking like a 5 year old, some things require a bit of 'toughening up', therefore I am not afraid to throw on my one and only leather jacket with a tea dress.
Pretty, glamour and utility chic (i was sooo impressed with Chloe and Phoebe Philo for Celine...camel, khaki, white, beige. Total perfection) are all that i am interested in this season. Dresses that look as though they have been inspired by a classic fairytale were presented on catwalks at Valentino, Lanvin and Chanel. Old Hollywood glamour was present at Dior...thats why i love John Galliano <3 besides any designer that can walk out on to a catwalk dressed like a classic 40s villain is a legend in my book. Stella McCartney-as always- presented us with white lace, classic denim and just the right amount of flounce at her show- she never dissapoints. Finally, from now until eternity Christopher Kane will always be THE man. Again his collection had me at the point of depression, simply because i wish i could own just one of those dresses...if only.
So which are you...modern. romantic, sporty? i believe there to be enough to suit everyone this season. Bring on Spring.
P.S Happy New Year everyone :) x
