Dsquared2 S/S ’12

Love that this S/S ’12 Dsquared2 colelction is inspired by Glastonbury. Everything from the models holding beers down to the muddy catwalk is so evocative of a a crazy and wild music festival. I love the Americana-inspired pieces draped and tattered that look so effortless on the models. And the touches of fur and felt hats really add to the Woodstock-esque/70s vibe.

Jil Sander S/S ’12

 

 

 

Jil Sander is traditionally known for clean, whites, and minimalism. This collection is no different. In a Fashion Week full of pattern, Jil Sander only features a few. With a small variety of patterns, prints, and colours, they truly stand out. To me, the collection is a modern take on the 50s and 60s. The silhouettes echo classic feminine looks of the early 60s. I hate to say it, but I can’t help but to think of it as Jil Sander’s Mad Men.

Style.com and Nymag.com

Not sure what my readers know about fashion, but a little over a year ago I found style.com and nymag.com. Since then, they have become my go-to resources for all things runway. They have the most current collections featured, they practically stream the images onto the website. They both work as quick as possible, and I very much appreciate that. Especially for those of us who can’t actually attend the fashion show. The sites are also great resources for past collections (some even have into the 90s) and for general info about designers and fashion houses.

D&G S/S ’12

The final D&G show before the collapse of the two lines: D&G and Dolce & Gabbana into one. I love this collection, it’s loud, fun and exotic. It reminds me of 70’s California boho-chic. Heavy, heavy on the prints. Bright and bold colours. Flowing and scarf-like pieces.
