Fall 2010: Recap


Labels: Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta

Models: Tanya Dziahileva, Camille Bidault-Walddington, Kori Richardson, Natasha Poly
Collection: Fall 2010 RTW
Trend: Heavy Outerwear

So the fashion schedule runs quickly as we all know. We run quickly, and leave behind anyone not willing to keep up. The couture shows just wrapped and now we find that the fall campaigns are beginning to drop which means that magazines will be gearing up for their largest issues, while designers are gearing up for another round of shows. A fashion guru must know the trends for upcoming seasons as well as what’s in for this season and so with that I’ve decided to recap some of what we saw last February and March. I wanted to start with the PLETHORA of outerwear that was provided. Of course I’ve decided to sort of pinpoint some personal favorites like Alexander McQueen and Oscar de la Renta, where the focus of the look was the outerwear there are plenty more where jackets blended seamlessly into the look. Another name to note when it comes to outerwear is Burberry Prorsum, who brings a great selection of outerwear season after season.
Check under the clip for more of our featured trends of Fall 2010.
Labels: Ann Demeulemeester, Chloe, Gareth Pugh, Giorgio Armani
Models: Melinda Szepesi, Raquel Zimmermann, Karlie Kloss, (unknown)
Collection: Fall 2010 RTW
Trend: Suits
Outerwear not only came as a separate, but also came in suits for the Fall 2010 collections. Karlie Kloss walked in Gareth Pugh among many dark, hard bodied models, in this draped suit, while Raquel Zimmerman walked for Chloe in a more light, sophisticated atmosphere. Chloe brought us high waisted pants with thin belts atop wide legged pants, a silhouette I love and is made beyond evident in their campaigns for this season. Melinda Szepesi walked at Ann Demeuleester, another somber affair, clad in metallic accessories. It seems as if every designer sees their clients being about their business for the Fall 2010 season.

Label: Acne, Balenciaga, Emilio Pucci, Alice + Olivia
Model: Dorothea Barth Jorgsen, Edita Vilkeviciute, Karmen Pendaru, Erica Rosen
Collection: Fall 2010 RTW
Trend: Graphic Prints
While some designers did stay with very somber palettes others, like Alice + Olivia and Emilio Pucci, gave us very fun pieces to be worn out for cocktails. The softness of the Alice + Olivia piece really overwhelmed me while the attention to various hem lines and necklines in the Emilio Pucci piece caught my attention. The piece that Dorothea Barth Jorgsen wore for Acne in their “Clone Wars” themed show seemed to me, like one that would be welcome to an art exhibit, or some other funky gathering, where flutes of champagne are on hand and the meaning of life is up for discussion. The last look, Edita Vilkeviciute in Balenciaga… actually wormed it’s way into here. Whereas most were overtly impressed by the clogs that Balenciaga showed, one can’t forget the clothing. Soft and demure is the name of the game for this piece.
Labels: Cynthia Rowley, Alexander Wang, Dolce and Gabbana, Bottega Veneta
Models: Natalia Schueroff, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Sigrid Agren, Jac
Collection: Fall 2010 RTW
Trend: Sheer
When looking to turn more heads than a graphic print can, for Fall 2010 you should always have a sheer piece on hand. Bottega Veneta designed a stunning little black dress for the season that shows skin in all the right places. When looking to step on the more dark side of things, one can easily make their way over to Alexander Wang. Draping and sheer seemed to be his forte with this collection going in almost a monochromatic vein. For the more funky, Cynthia Rowley is the key. Sheer tops pair exceedingly well with printed bottoms, knocking out two trends with one stone, and if you’re ever in doubt… well just go to uncles Dolce and Gabbana. While you may not know where exactly to wear the piece, wherever you decide I doubt anyone will protest.
Stay tuned for part 2 of our recap featuring some shoes, cocktail dresses, and red carpet moments.

RESORT: Proenza Schouler 2011

So if you are searching for an unbiased, levelheaded, dry, post about the Proenza Schouler Resort 2011 Collection… GO ELSEWHERE! Although I am not a bag carrying member of the PS Cult, I’m a card carrying member and one of the MANY fanatics who want sooo much to be in the in crowd. In my mind the duo, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough can do no wrong and the only thing that I may be partially upset with them with is that there isn’t a mens line. No matter though…don’t tell anyone I said this but if I get my hands on a piece… I might wear it no matter the intended sex.

See the rest of the GLORIOUS collection under the clip

I could never decide on what to call the Proenza Schouler style… never could find a name that I like for their aesthetic but after my first year in college… I’VE GOT IT! I don’t know if they’ve been called this before or if people will just shake their heads at me for saying it but the Proenza Schouler aesthetic is like an Art History major. No not an art major, but Art History. There’s a distinct difference between the two. An art major may create something like Le Lin Tiffany Tang created for her graduation show but, an Art History Major is the type of designer that incorporates the techniques more into the styling and coloring of the fabrics. Where have I heard this before… no where… It’s purely 803 Markese Street lingo 🙂
