Louis Vuitton S/S 2010 FW

It was a sojourn through Williamsburg under Marc Jacobs’ roof this morning. Fox’s better thirds dangled from street inspired leather bags screaming for a show independent from the Louis Vuitton collection. PETA would have had a fit. We didn’t know what to concentrate on whether it be the cotton ball afros, the bags or the uncharacteristic Louis Vuitton collection — lace leggings juxtaposed by hazy hued mini dresses; garbage bag inspirations translated into glazed plastic skirts coupled with hosiery silk tube shirts; denim blouse-cum-dresses accented by frills. To sum up the collection, ghetto-fab met high brow. If the LV monograms were absent I might not have recognized a complete turn from its high brow roots to this lowbrow-esque collection. It’s apparent that in a race to indie designs among the top fashion houses, Armani and Gucci are lagging far far far behind.

Balmain Brings the Amazonians to Life

Forget this season’s eighties bandwagon. Balmain contrived his visions of beautiful Amazonians – powerful all-female warriors from Greek mythology – and let his enchanting dominatrix army loose onto the runway at Paris Fashion Week S/S 2010. His ingenuity with fashioning an otherwise traditional, mundane canvas translated to lamé dresses, rope-like belts, meticulously torn t-shirts and, his trademark, shoulder padded jackets but kept the earthen tone theme uniform throughout the collection. I don’t know about you but, by looking at Balmain’s execution, he appears to have caught Rodarte fever – although his designs are on the less outlandish side and are actually wearable.

Many designers for Spring Fashion Week, seemed to have this trend in common: prints, prints, prints. From  earthen tone nature inspired grunge to hippy-esque hot pinks and yellows, the prints are eye intensively busy with hints of leopard skin on cold hues, bright Rorschach inkblots stains and flower prints (below). As expected for the Spring, easily windblown fabrics , provide the canvases for these works of art.
