•New York Fashion Week, in fact, any kinda fashion week (especially London) is my absolute favourite time of the year. There’s always such an excited buzz on blogs and in magazines and it’s quite hard to keep up with who’s wearing what, who’s front row and who slapped who – FYI, this time it was a PR girl who was on the receiving end of an editor’s rage over the seating arrangements at Zac Posen and was told ‘Don’t fuck with the French’. SO, not wanting to miss anything I usually scrapbook a few of my favourite shows as bit of a hobby. Yes I still scrapbook, yes I am 24, what of it?
Old school glamour, vintage and romance spring to mind when flicking through images of Zac Posen’s collection. I love the softness of his designs, each dress prettier and more detailed than the next, some more elaborate and dramatic than others. For most of the time the skirts stayed below the knees, the shoulders were covered in capped sleeves and the necklines were sweetheart. The rest of the time, tight bodices made the models look like they were fit to burst and Coco Rocha made an appearance as Belle from Beauty and the Beast… Maybe.
I am practically in love with Phillip Lim’s 3.1 collection for SS13 and want to hug my 9 year old self and tell her that she wasn’t a loser after all for her love of patchwork patterns, knotting shirts around her waist and baggy dungarees. The consensus at the show was a lot more street than some of the cocktail dresses and tailoring Lim is so well known for but the grungey, young and deconstructed feel he achieved was also a breath of fresh air. Not to be mistaken for a one trend pony, Lim also introduced plenty of floral prints and denim for his more traditional fans. Anyway, who currs, I’m off to make peace with my childhood.
