Paris Fashion Week is in full force. So I figured an obligatory fashion post was in order… especially since I haven’t done a fashion related post in awhile. Looking through the Ready To Wear Spring 2013 runway photos, I was quite enamored by the creativity and pure beauty of it all.
Louis Vuitton: Who’s up for a game of checkers?! We’re playful and fun! I love strategic board games like chess and checkers just as much as the next person… just not THIS much Louis.
Alexander McQueen: What’s up Honeybee?! This is what happens when beekepers meet Marie Antoinette. She looks like a flower but she stings like a bee, like every girl in history (…shebang).
Alexander Wang: Cut. It. Out. Bitch. Dominatrix leather meets the shears of architectural genius. Two words: HARD. LINES.
Badgley Mischka: Quite possibly my favorite collection in the Spring 2013 RTW’s. This shit is HAUTE.
Balenciaga: Who would’ve thought that menswear angles and flamenco flows could go together?
Celine: This year they rocked the “I just rolled out of bed in my finest, most beautifulest, yet one size too large lingerie. So look at me and see what a disheveled yet fucking immaculate mess I am”. I’m not thrilled about this collection, but I applaud it.
Chloe: Obsessed. Remember that fashion tip where if you show a lot of skin on the bottom, you should be a bit more conservative on the skin on top? and visa versa? AKA the proportionality of skin ratio? (Please tell me someone else lives by that…) Yeah, well Chloe pays homage to that… and then some, in the most brilliant way possible.
Diane Von Furstenberg: She can never go wrong. Geometric goodness meshes with the per usual color palate of San Francisco, California on LSD (which is fitting considering the reference to Silicon Valley with the Google Glass on the models and even being rocked by DVF herself)
Isabel Marant: Wearing anything from this collection would make me ready for a vacation in India or Bali where I would go “find myself”. Somewhere between short short shorts and a mumu.
Jill Stuart: This collection happened after someone creatively took a pair of scissors to the costumes of Downton Abbey. Its romanitcally, hopelessly, lovely.
L’Wren Scott: If an outfit could kill, L’Wren Scott’s would murder. That shit is SHARP. Edges, in the edgiest way possible.
Yves Saint Laurent: If Florence Welch had a baby with Sarah Jessica Parker, Hocus Pocus era (minus the hair, plus the style) with Tommy Lee Jones as the sperm donor.
Valentino: If this collection was made into a cookie, it undoubtedly would be a plain sugar cookie, decorated with a sugar frosted lace design. That is all.
Proenza Schouler: This is how I imagine the characters of Brave New World looking.
