H&M

Hmmm, though H&M’s Fall lookbook wasn’t really up my street for sure they have some goodies coming in, leather pieces and soft hairy jumpers, yes please! Wouldn’t mind these 3 pieces in my wardrobe, in store from August.
Gilet £80, jumper £30, shorts £40.

Maison Martin Margiela A/W 11-12

Maison Martin Margiela never does anything within “normal standards”. A coat is never just a coat but a piece of art, there are always some special details, either as cuts in sleeves, zippers or the front and back are 2 completely different things. When i watched the show live I wasn’t so enthusiastic about it but my favorites are definitely the coats and some of the accessories, like the oversized clutches and the crazy nutty rings even if I know they are totally not wearable.

Celine A/W 11-12

This afternoon I watched the Celine show live and I’ve been waiting impatiently ever since I saw the pre-fall collection in January. This collection continued where the previous one ended, the dominance of metallics, blues and burgundy were now switched to brown and beige tones. To me this collection fully lived up to my expectations, in fact I think I love everything from the combo of white turtle necks with the side patched tailored trousers, beautiful clean cut long coats, the shoes and bags to the models hair and make. My absolute favorite collection from Paris so far and it’s in the same street as my favorite from Milan, Jil Sander.

What do you think? See the whole collection here.

Isabel Marant A/W 11-12

The Isabel Marant show today was 3 hours delayed so all my plans to do a run out in the late afternoon was also very delayed cause I really wanted to see this show live as I’ve been looking forward to it for a while. Marant herself obviously have had cowboys and indians in mind for this collection, and if I just close my eyes for the hideous footwear I see many pieces that I really like, loving would be an exaggeration or maybe they just need time growing until the must-have moment kicks in.

Favorites are the denim pieces, I wouldn’t mind any of the white coats either and the wonderful knitwear seen in her spring collection is still in there. I guess I’ll be trying to lay my hands on certain pieces when they are in store in like 5 months….

Balenciaga A/W 11-12

Images Style.com

At 9 am this morning I was glued to my screen to watch the Balenciaga show live and here’s some of the looks which pretty much represent the rest of the collection. I really like this even though I find some of the looks a bit hard to pull off but judged as individual pieces a completely different thing.

One keyword, leather, plenty of it, as jackets, trousers, fishnets, as patches and even some knitted detailed leather jackets, tops and bags. There were many of the floral patterned just-below-the-knee-skirts that I’m not over the moon about but I really think it works with the leather. The colors overall goes in black, white, blues, gray, burgundy and silver metallics and those booties, please send my way!

The Blues

Loving the blues in Sportmax fall collection, what is the right name, turquoise blue, electric, vibrant blue? Overall the whole collection was ok, the silk shirt on the right looks heavenly.

Maxis, brogues and bum-bags

Dolce & Gabbana sent down their donnas on the runway today in Milan wearing maxi dresses, brogues with socks and bum bags. I love this unpredictable combination though I find it hard to swallow the star prints that seems to be the red line through the whole collection. Having that said I’ve never been a D&G fan but these bum bags look fantastic!

Jil Sander Fall 2011

Raf Simons presented his fall collection for Jil Sander in Milan today and not very surprisingly I like it even though I was much more excited about their spring collection. Many black looks and darker colors, clean cut as usual and the knitwear and patterns give me alpine vibes. Some of the looks reminds me of the outfits Tilda Swinton wears in the beautiful movie I Am Love. Notice the blue/green eyeshadow, nice!

I popped by Bloomingdales while in NY and had a closer look on Theyskens’ Theory spring collection, or what was left of it, I wasn’t over the moon as many of the best pieces already sold out.
These looks are from Theyskens’ Fall collection and is exactly what I would like to wear this spring, dilemma or budget alternatives please.

I’ve posted about this collection at Flingly if you’re interested.

Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 11-12

As you may know already I love Alexander Wang‘s design and his fall collection lived up to my expectations even if I find those hairy shoes hard to swallow.

I was looking for his spring collection in several malls in NY today but all info I got was misleading and all I ended up to find before the stores closed was his T-collection, I’ll give it another try tomorrow if there’s time for it.
Anyway, enjoy the live video from his show!

Transparence

Lovely silhouettes in Givenchy’s pre-fall collection 2011, especially the one to the right, oversized turtle neck with transparent skirt and bare legs, for fall? I don’t think so but I love the look and an easy fix with some hosiery.

Celine Pre-Fall 2011

I’m not too crazy about Celine’s collection for this spring but in their Pre-Fall collection there are plenty of lovable looks that I think we will see likes of in high streets when that time comes around. The typical tailored Celine cuts are in there along with the structured coats, looks promising for the coming collection to be shown during fashion weeks. My favorite looks are the first and last, send my way please.

Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2011

Images Style.com

Looks like Alexander Wang goes back to black for the his fall collection, yet still a more sophisticated black collection than earlier and I really like this one, very commercial, I could easily wear every single look. This is his biggest pre-fall collection so far and still represent a tiny bit of what we’re gonna see during NFW in February. PS: Keep an eye on the shoes.
