oh my god, how i’ve missed style.com! seriously, i haven’t even been looking at stuff…that’s how pathetic i’ve been. and today? i went through all the spring 2010 ready-to-wear collections. some were way disappointing, like marchesa. ugh. and then i read that irving penn, one of my favorite-favorite photographers, and certainly one of the most well-respected fashion photogs EVER has bitten the dust at age 92.
let’s take a moment of silence for mr. penn.
okay! that’s enough…now onto the fashion. there are a lot of limbs gone out on for spring, and i’m not sure which ones are good, and which ones are not so good…yet.
alexander mcqueen spring 2010 ready-to-wear
i ALWAYS love, love alexander mcqueen. this collection surprised me a bit; very reptilian-ethereal-alien-wrapped-in-ectoplasm. i didn’t watch the show, but i can only pray to baby jesus that the church’s ‘reptile’ was the runway music! and i looove the black pieces towards the end…i die for the very last black dress.
john galliano spring 2010 ready-to-wear
man, i looooove me some john galliano. i do. i could eat him. i’m not sure how i feel about this collection though….it’s sort of rummage-sale-secretary-costumey-chic had a baby with edie beale. but i like it…? kinda? these were some of my favorites…
wunderkind spring 2010 ready-to-wear
i’ve never been crazy about wunderkind…i think it’s only the name that i don’t like. i’ve never given it a chance, but it caught my eye this time. style.com wasn’t wild about this collection, but i think designer wolfgang joop did a bang-up job in black & blue…
you know i have a weakness for anything black, but i think these are truly beautiful. would maybe be better with some plain, old, opaque black tights or some wide-fenced fishnets…? but, whatever…i totally feel better now! sweet fashion dreams, my loves!
