Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2018

The Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2018 collection marks a shift in the brand’s visual style.  It seems that Paul Surridge, the new creative director (Vogue ’18), succeeds in taming the wild animal that is Cavalli and its prints- almost everything is salable, marketable, wearable.  There is a marked difference between this and recent Cavalli collections which really…

Nasir Mazhar Fall/Winter 2016 FW16 LFW

Nasir Masher’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection was basically all black and pretty basic…  I feel as if the stand out looks of the collection were the little bolero (what would we call it?), and the unimpressive shawl-lapel jacket.  …not much else to say about this collection.

A Platform for Platforms

Platforms have long been worn by those in alternative style categories, from Goth to Pastel Goth and even Kerli’s Klick- who go by the fan-nickname MoonChild.   Japan apparently, as the video cites, has had them around for decades.  I’m sure you’re familiar with Y.R.U. if you live in the states: I love the Qozmo…

Moschino FW15 MFW

Puffer Pimpin, Jeremy Scott’s crazy ass continues to vomit ugly onto the runways.  Sleeping bag puffer jackets, coats, overalls, and skirts, oh why.  The harness and spray paint bags are cool ideas; the double brimmed hats, however, are not. Looney Toons graphic shirts and jerseys, bags, accessories and jackets are sure to strike a chord…

Peter Pilotto FW15

If you thought of the 70’s and tried to reminisce about those hideous colors, those gross greens and yucky yellows, the paisley, then said- what would it look like seeing those things while n acid- that’s what Peter Pilotto showed for Fall 2015.

Christopher Kane: Art or Arts & Crafts?

While the beautiful art, figures, decorated the dresses at Christopher Kane, it seems the fine line of art and crafty was crossed…repeatedly.  What started out as silhouetted graphics turned into dangling feet and little penises hanging off dresses.  If said dangling feet were cut off and sewn down at the hemline, I’d say this is…

Gucci: You’re Fired!

Just as we say farewell to one Gucci creative director, Frida Giannini, it looks as if we’re going to be saying “bye Erica,” to the new one, Alessandro Michele, or rather “You’re fired!,” which seems more appropriate given Donald Trump’s hair was the inspiration for these toupee shoes. It was sisterhood of the traveling ruffles…

Preen FW15

The Preen Fall/Winter 2015 collection was refreshing, and showed some the most modern and fun ways to represent the seventies trend with bright and bold plaids, but you know I hate florals.  The outerwear and tuxedos and tuxedo pants were amazing- I found myself trying to justify wearing them as a man.  Overall a wearable, unique,…

Marchesa Notte FW15

The Marchesa Notte Fall 2015 collection was a little boring and old with those prints: I never understand how designers with such impeccable taste put out mistakes like the LBTD: little black titty dress.  I hate the striped dress, but I do like the black and gold sheer dress, and hope women adopt this illustion…

Tom Ford Fall 2015

The Tom Ford FW15 collection looked like a stroll down memory lane- or alley rather, with looks inspiring 90’s fashion rejects.  It looks like he took different designers’ styles and said, what would it look like if they didn’t edit?  Cavalli inspired wild prints poorly executed, the boring side of Dolce and Gabbana.  Weird denim…
