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.

S/S 2010 FW Trend: Frills

On designer’s minds for S/S 2010 is the question, “why settle for 2D surfaces when you can have 3D?” Designers channeled the late Victorian era, when more cloth parallels higher stature, enlivening an otherwise mundane canvas of blazers, dresses and blouses, with frills, and intensified the late 1800s with a glint of inspiration from nature — considering each collection appear to bloom oversized petals from every edge and open space. It’s a modern twist on the archaic, that I will be adoring, for the streets come Spring.
