FALL 2010: Issey Miyake

Issey Miyake. The Color. The chance to show that color can be done in the fall. As these models graced the runway in Paris…they made sure that Issey Miyake’s clothes were brought to life. Issey is exceptional with color and this collection proves it. Though some were in gray the colorful garments with graphics, pleats, and crazy art deco prints over shadowed them all. Besides standing out with colors he also did his best to stay away from fitted pieces. Majority of his line was not fitted with things like large cardigans, suits, and jackets. Indeed I loved Issesy Miyake’s collection. It was a breath of colorful air from all the darkness.

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2010 Bags

When I first laid eyes on these pictures, my mouth dropped & watered. I simply love the fresh look, perfect for summer. The thing I really enjoy about this Louis Vuitton hand bag collection is that its has a little bit of something for every woman from the business woman to the summer traveler that just wants to have fun with her girlfriends. Some of the bags are refeshing with hints of pastels, light to dark fading, and plaids, while some of them are in the classic brown with the LV print but spiced up with striping. There’s even a book pack, that has fringe, springs and tassles galore. It’s totally differnet from the African and flight bag thing they had going on last spring, it was a darker color scheme and wasn’t as laid bag and relaxed. I was very pleased when I saw this line because I automatically saw casual written all over it and it was nice to see that they played with the jeans bags by adding color stiching to make it fun but, they didn’t stop there…the collection also includes a line of bag chains to add even more personality, from foxy tails to long tassles LV wanted to make sure these chains made a statement right alont with their head turning bags.
