flash back or flash forward

All I showed you of this season's runways was the one Comme des Garcons picture, which I thought had gotten bad reviews but wasn't in fact true! It was Louis Vuitton who was found ridiculous but I didn't agree on that either. Anyway, since I think I should give you more than my crappy outfit shots once a week, I decided to do a quickie-review on my favorite brands and their Spring '10 RTW shows.

Moschino Cheap & Chic I love the colors, fabrics, patterns, accessories, pieces! Everything! It's so playful, as always, and wearable as well as just inspirational.

Marc Jacobs Marc did okay I suppose, but some things were just slightly 'off' and I didn't like the pyjama pants a lot. The shoes simply confused me. There were some really good dresses in there but you had to look for them. Not his best.

Chanel I think this might have been the most memorable show of the season because of the original setting and all. It gives it the spring feel that is kind of missing for the outfit colors, but I guess that's a trademark, the black and white. I did like the looks: they were Chanel no doubt but still again unique and new. I thought the clogs were very cool, and the white tights with stripes too. Could we DIY that? ;)

Viktor & Rolf I found I should add these amazing guys to my favorites because they're so creative and outstanding.. I'm so proud of our country 'sniff'.. A Viktor & Rolf idea of wearable is quite different from the public's. But you gotta love it. The color schemes were really springish but still 'sober' (meaning not over the top) which delivered some great things. I especially loved the rose shoes! There were a few pieces, though, that were probably a great idea on paper but in execution a little less. The impression I got from the total was 'modern, silk angels' which is to me a pretty lovely concept.

Emanuel Ungaro I'm actually not at all familiar with his work but when I'd heard Lindsay Lohan was the new creative editor here I had to take a look. I always found she has a great sense of style, though the last I've seen of her it was all leggings and I'm not the greatest fan of those. Anyway, I don't know how much influence a creative editor has on the final result, but I actually liked this show! The colors and patterns especially stood out to me and of course not everything was perfect, but the overall thing seemed pretty good to me. I do have to say that, in contrast to the V&R collection, 'ready to wear' is maybe an understatement here. Then again there's nothing wrong much with a simple look once in a while :)
