London Fashion Week – Burberry Prorsum Spring 2011

by Profashionelle on September 27, 2010 · 0 comments

I really didn’t believe Christopher Bailey could outdo himself after the hotness that is his Fall 2010 collection, but I was pleasantly surprised that my great expectations were not only met but superseded.

As is tradition with Burberry the major focus was on the jackets and trenchcoats which there were plenty of. What I loved were the neon accessories against the rather neutral palette of nudes, blacks and other earthy tones. Another theme were the flouncy silk dresses which were combined with leather jackets in crazy shiny silver python or nude with gold spikes bestowing the shoulders.

Once again Bailey managed to put Burberry back on the map of the fashion-forward. Definitely one of the headliners so far! ♥

New York Fashion Week – Jason Wu Spring 2011

by Profashionelle on September 11, 2010 · 0 comments

New York Fashion Week has finally kicked off and Jason Wu‘s S/S 2011 collection was one of my favorite collections yet. I loved the color scheme of neutrals vs. brights, the sheer blouses adorned with oversized bows and paired with the ever timeless high-waisted pants. Of course florals for spring aren’t groundbreaking, but if they’re executed as beautiful as seen here who can blame Wu for returning to this seasonal trend?

Christian Dior Spring 2010

Christian Dior Spring 2010 Collection

Rating: ★★★★☆

Let me start off by saying that John Galliano x Christian Dior is untouchable. I don’t think there will ever be a collection I won’t find myself in love with. Christian Dior plays in its own league and, for me, is the definition of high fashion, couture & French elegance. For Spring 2010 Galliano sticked to the lingerie theme he first introduced us to in his Fall 2009 couture show where models were pantless and everything was presented with garters and semi-sheer knickers.

What I also really liked were the film noir references. Galliano said he designed this collection with actress Lauren Bacall in mind. Hourglass silhouettes, lamé dresses, short trenchcoats, transparent chiffon gowns – all in all a solid, romantic & feminine collection with the usual, flawless quality you’ve come to expect of Dior and its mastermind Monsieur Galliano. Already looking forward to Spring 2010 Couture.

Versace Spring 2010

Versace Spring 2010 Collection

Rating: ★★★★½

Versace’s Spring 2010 collection was a fashion interpretation of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland as Donatella said she’d been inspired by the fantasyland in the film. We had geometric prints dipped in pastel candy colors, paired with Versace’s quintessential slinky, sexy silhouettes and completed with giga high platforms which – even by stiletto lover standards – should be quite a challenge to walk in.

After being disappointed by the Fall 2009 collection I am so happy to see Donatella return to her glory days. Gotta love her for designing clothes that make you want to hit the gym, right?

Rodarte Spring 2010

Rodarte Spring 2010 Collection

At first I was a little disappointed with Laura and Kate Mulleavy’s Spring 2010 collection for Rodarte because the first shown pieces were way too messy and grungy for my liking and I couldn’t shake the thought of picturing homeless people in these clothes – an association I really wasn’t feeling good with.

But halfway through the show, the interesting pieces started to pour in and I was astounded at how much I’ve gone through love and hate with the whole collection. My personal favorites were the black pieces which were shown in the last third of the show. Typical Rodarte with a new twist! The collection’s leitmotif was “scarred and still beautiful” and I think this pretty much sums it up. The Rodarte sisters have once more done a great job – at least for half of the collection. What do you think of it? You can view the whole collection here.
