These two dolls are the first shots of the Marc Jacobs beauty line via the Style.com Editor’s Diary. Already in love with the packaging
The Alexander Wang show not only flooded my twitter feed, but also was the most talked about show from Saturday, September 8, 2012. Waiting to view the photos of the collection properly, through style.com, I finally got my chance last evening. I was floored. The garments are futuristic in a way that’s wearable. There are meticulous cutouts and illusions held together by fishing wire making the garments look like they are wearing the models. The finale was a stunner: all the models were placed on the runway, standing still, and the lights were cut revealing that the dresses glow in the dark. Sitting front row was an array of fashion-staples from Anna Della Russo to A$AP Rocky.
It was a hard thing sitting at work today reading all the tweets from those attending the Carven show in Paris. I couldn’t handle the influx of Teen Vogue, Nylon, and other magazines tweeting about the greatness of this Spring/Summer 2012 collection. I am a huge fan of Carven and Gaillaume Henry. I respect the label so much and especially Henry’s efforts in revamping and reviving the house. Henry makes Carven fresh and so appealing to the style of young women (as if you could afford it). As with his previous collections, Carven is known for structure and shaping of garments. Little peek-a-boos of skin can be found on almost every look which I feel is almost signature to the brand. Bottom line: the collection is going to be all over the edgy and cutting edge fashion magazines this spring.
Here’s the rest of the collection.
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.
