PRE-FALL: Pink 2011


Labels: Matthew Williamson, No. 21, Proenza Schouler, Valentino

If you ask me, there aren’t many ways to get more feminine than the color pink. For the Pre-Fall 2011 collections we saw alot of feminine tendencies as well as alot of pink. If you don’t believe me, why don’t you review which Oscar de la Renta gown that Jennifer Lawrence just wore on the red carpet of the 2011 SAG awards. If that doesn’t convince you, nor the four looks from above that I pulled(don’t worry we’re going to get into the Proenza boys in a sec hold your horses), I’m not sure what I can do to convince you.
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez do it for me every season with Proenza Schouler. I can’t lie, they just do! This season was no different. With a black boot(sometimes open toed) to accompany every look, the collection conveyed a sense of strength to me. The funny thing is, I’m normally not a print type of guy and yet every season I come back to them. I think they lace the collars with some type of highly addictive substance. It doesn’t matter though, hand me that black over sized blazer and I’ll take a deep whiff.

COUTURE: Valentino F/W 2010/2011

Models: Ajak Deng, Sara Blomqvist(Viva), Jenny Sinkaberg(IMG) Jac(IMG)
Collection: Valentino FW 2010/2011 Couture in Paris
So, in an effort to cover shows quickly, we’re back at this condensed format. In case you don’t follow me on Twitter, I’ve been doing alot of things off the blog, so none of my various channels have been receiving any love. Also, if you’ve been following me you’ll see that I was confused about the couture shows and what season was showing, but now I’m back on. Let’s jump right into the Valentino show though. Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri put on a mediocre show for me as a whole. Some pieces individually, like Ajak Deng’s and Jac’s looks above, were pieces that were personal favorites, while others like Sara Blomqvist’s, were to me soooo Valentino. Subliminally I felt small reminders to Alexis Mabille collections of seasons past, like Jenny Sinkaberg’s, but on the whole I actually liked those pieces. Some of the more longer pieces though, especially pieces with skirting included seemed to fit a little awkwardly.
