New York Fashion Week: Spring 2011

In comes the new season Spring 2011, starting with New York Fashion Week. I didn’t feel like doing special posts about it or anything, after all fall has just begun, and in some places summer is not even over yet. Sometimes it just feels like fashion is going way too forward, gets a bit overwhelming and tiring really. Tom Ford is right; we all get what made the fashion immediacy happen, but the need for it? No. Immediacy is not going to replace anything, but somehow once you see too much of a collection or a trend it gets overexposed and boring before its time to wear them. 

Anyway, so I was saying I didn’t want to post anything about fashion week but I am giving in, honestly, can’t boycott immediacy. Here are some of my favorite picks from New York Fashion Week, obviously countless shows were just as fabulous, like Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Helmut Lang, Sass & Bide, Michael Kors just to name a few, but these are the ones that I like the most, collection en bloc. 

Marchesa Spring 2011 – Purely spectacular cocktail and evening wear: pastel tones and flowery organza drapes; exquisite dresses with fine embroideries; laser cut delicacy in the most lavish way imaginable. Each piece is determined to take your breath away, hello? Are we still looking at prêt-a-porter? 

Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 – This collection particularly stands out because it completely dissent the use of pastels and white (which is almost the essential colours of spring). Exotic and resort themed, gypsy shaped dresses in Moroccan colours, large flower appliqués with a touch of a flamingo dancer all trés trés séduisant.

Rodarte Spring 2011 – Think streams golden sunlight sifting into a barn, a country-esque milieu. Quite a nice break from the heap of white which seems to be really popular this season. Consists major juxtaposing of different colours and fabrics, the pieces are spotlessly tailored and draped sending a childwoman vibe.
