(Left) Draped pieces are my favourite as usual. (Right) Such a quirky little headpiece don't you think?
(Left) For those of you who listens to Mando-pop, you've probably already seen these two-tone leggings on Jolin Tsai in one of her 'Flower Butterfly' album outfits. I think it actually looks better just being photographed than being worn out, like you've only remembered to wear half your pants no? Loving the jacket though. And check out those polka-dotted gloves.
(Right) I remember being alittle obsessed with knee high socks some time back, seeing it as an alternative to leggings/stockings. I don't know if it's just me, but somhow I can't help but feel there's this thinking that wearing knee-high socks=acting cute/young? I'm still loving the socks nonetheless. And I do love how her blue socks matches the shoes.
(Left) Another look I really like, long cardis over shorts, or basically anything short. (Right) If you know me, I'm sure you know the first thing that drew me to this picture is the huge floppy hat! Obsess! The only thing is I go crazy over these huge floppy hats, touch and try them on in stores and omg over them but don't actually buy them at all simply coz I know I won't really wear them out? At least not here, maybe in Japan where I know people won't stare at me like I'm a freak.
Loving the pants/leggings. And I'm sure many will go crazy over the shoes. Not me though.
Saw this on a new blog I just discovered. I'm kinda loving the first look, the contrast between the top and bottom half. The second look, I'll wear the whole outfit anytime. The designs are from a New Zealand label, Twenty-Seven Names.
So, London Fashion Week has just ended. Here are some of the collections I like/kinda like/not feeling (I didn't go through all LFW collections though):
Sass & Bide has to be one of my favourite collections for Spring 2010 so far. I love the combination of the hard and soft elements, the structured metal pieces forming patterns on soft, flowy fabrics bringing out feminitiy with an edge. Especially love the metal ring dress and metal-esque leggings. And those shoes! Fab Fab Fab!
And of course, I love the shinest silver paillette-encrusted coat at Burberry. Haha. The close-up shot is way more breathtaking. Love the knotted draping technique used on almost every possible piece of clothing. Dresses, skirts, jackets, trenchcoats and even pants! Pretty cool stuff.
Prints and colours, I love love love! Once again, amazing digital prints from Basso & Brooke.
This is the first time I've heard of Australian designer Josh Goot and he's got this whole colours+prints thing going on as well so what do you think? I like it. Nothing exciting silhoutte-wise but his graphic prints (check out those 3D looking prints) are pretty interesting no?
Love the detailing (triangular metal plates, cut-out sequinned dress, 3D sequinned flowers on dresses & sleeves, ruching, just to name a few) and the futuristic necklaces.
Cute dresses here. Even Alexa Chung is a fan. This whole big bow trend, however, not really feeling much for it. Been seeing too much of that plus the lace rabbit ears lately.
I know many bloggers have been raving about this collection alot. Could it be the effect of the immense popularity of his recent capsule collection for Topshop (coming soon to Singapore btw)? I really liked Christopher Kane's Resort Collection earlier on but this one, I'm not really feeling entirely. The thigh high slits on not one but both sides? Don't know about that. I much prefer the dresses without the slits like the one in the middle. Not a fan of gingham as well, guess the things I did like were the pleated chiffon and bustier detail on the dresses.
Phew, that was a long one. Eagerly awaiting what Milan & Paris has to offer.
