The New Generation: A Mega Post!

"I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now."

Preppy Casual (3.1 Phillip Lim)

New Goth (Rodarte)
The New Urban/Bohemian
Close-up please! (Burberry Prorsum)
Tough Chic (DKNY)

Each one of these looks is so fashion forward!

GORGEOUS! (Badgley Mischka)
More Details!
Its like fairy princess with a twist-do you see those spiky heels?!
Alright so I'm rather critical of fashion collections. I can decide whether I like it or not in at least 10 seconds. Then if a collection really catches my eye I will take a couple of minutes before finalizing which collections make it into my posts. Anyway, here are some notes I've made on the Fall '08 collections...
First are the honorable mentions:
Louis vuitton:
masculine, materials used for comfort, bold
kind of woman who would wear this: daring!
definitely not created for the fashionably weak
Stella mccartney
interesting detail
beautiful flow
*in quite a few of the collections the metallic trend seeps its way back in
a lot of black was incorporated in the fall '08 collections
Lela rose: pretty, belts worked well as accessories, feminine, soft
Wunderkind: "fresh perspective" new
masterpieces in motion
Now for the top 5, these collections are all MUST-SEES
1. 3.1 phillip lim
simply cutting-edge cool
exquisite draping
2. Badgley mischka
taste of refinement
fantastic jewelery
embodiment of glamour
could not help but think and say "gorgeous!"
color combination and prints were perfection
3. Burberry prorsum
unique jewlery
metallic elements were in the clothing
colors used were not the ordinary-gave an intersting twist to the clothes
youthful to the max
tough and soft elements mixed
to the point
playful and imaginative
a touch of fantasy

Embracing the "new" is very important. These looks belong to the finalists on Project Runway Season 4, and I think that each one of these designers has a new view on fashion. The first look is by Jillian, and I really love how it is styled. The combination of the garments and accessories is just brilliant. The second look is by Rami, the headband is very pretty and creative. Although, it reminds of the headbands created in a past Marc Jacobs show. The last picture shows a dress by Christian; and the mix of the two colors and the choice of material are very successful in creating a powerful look. Now here are some looks from the past........

These are some dramatic pieces from the Met in NY. Each piece is expressive in its own way, but my favorite would have to be the third picture is designed by none other than John Galliano.

This is a painting that I really really love. I adore the colors and what this women is wearing. The painting is done by John Singer Sargent who just happens to be A-mazing.

I love this quote-especially since it's through a fashion designer's perspective.(Even though she's not a real person).Here's that quote again:
"I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now."
