Fall 2010: Milan Top Five

Emilio Pucci:

Emilio Pucci was extremely hot, from head-to-toe. I loved the sexiness and somewhat erotic vibe found in the sheer, laced-up numbers. However, the Hair reminds me of Ke$ha (not good).


I hate to reiterate but, Prada was quite erotic with the accentuated bust and exaggerated shape. I also love that normal models were thrown into the mix (for once); however, for Miuccia to be one of the first of the season is quite odd. Maybe its a sign?


Dsquared2 is typically trashy and mostly denim. However, this season was mostly leather and fur (with the appropriate amount of 'trashy). I think it was one of their best collections [as of late].


I don't normally pay much attention to Etro, since its usually cluttered with Maxi dresses and paisley prints. However, this collection was impeccably styled and tailored.


At Versace, tailored coats and knitwear were paired with metallic crotch-skimming dresses. You know how I enjoy juxtaposition.

Fall 2010: London Top Five


Even though, this was an Autumn/Winter show, Erdem managed to squeeze in Florals, Colors and even 'happiness. The show opened with a Black Cape with painted florals-absolutey marvelous!

Charles Anastase:
I love the 'Circus-Clown vibe of this collection. Also, the girls look dramatically tall (due to the long silhouettes and outrageous platforms).
Burberry Prorsum:

The toughness combined with the distressed femininity creates a very interesting contrast. I really love those Aviator jackets; they're quite similar to those Balenciaga jackets.

Christopher Kane:

Once again (as mentioned for Burberry), the contrast between lace and 'dominatrixesque sandals is wonderful. Also, the painted florals are quite lovely in an Autumn/Winter 2010 collection.

Pringle of Scotland:

I think I'm only fond of the Pringle collection because their campaigns with Tilda Swinton are so wonderful! This collection is quite reminiscent of prior Balenciaga collections (specifically, Fall 2004; those Aviator jackets, again) , no?

Fur-Trimmed Rain Macs to the tune of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' sent shivers up my spine.
