The Shirt's Shirt

Leave it to Viktor & Rolf to make a whole collection based on the men's shirt look avantegarde-ish amazing.

Miuccia's Mädels

Strangely drawn to the pop of colours meets frumpy frocks at Miu Miu. 
Dresses 3 and 4 remind me a bit of the Prada fairy pieces from a few years back.

Vilsbøl de Arce

I had added this label to my list of "must blog on" topics, because I really liked how Prisca Vilsbøl and Pia de Arce executed the idea of their A/W 10 range so well. 
The collection's lookbook noted that the idea of the collection is:
‘Stripping down the human form, inverting the
skin, this collection vibrates with bodily ambience
and revolves around ligaments,
muscle fibres, human tissue and skeletal structures
creating an organic fashion illusion of
What do you think of the end result?

Love At First Bid

I am infatuated. With my eBayed Givenchy shoes. Bought on a whim at a major discount. Mind you, a rich bitch I am not. Case in point: I pulled a Carrie Bradshaw and bought some £6 Primark trainers to go with my Givenchy shoes. I figured it would be a good investment. Cough cough. Mom, please don't kill me when you read this.

Le shoes posing on my desk with the Boots Basics Natural Hold hairspray doing a cameo in the background.

Note to self: Pedicures. Do them more often.

A close up of the leather threading on the side of the shoe:

Even though I have little brown and beige in my wardrobe, I feel like these babies will go with just about anything. Plus they fit like a glove and are surprisingly comfy, although I have yet to really break them in, but judging the buttery soft leather, that won't be too hard.

Give Me (Chain) Wings

A big fan of anything harnessed, be it chains or leather (to which collection I have added my first piece to, but more on that later), my heart fluttered a bit when seeing this beautiful chain bolero on The Zoe Report. Yes, I am a sucker for Rachel Zoe. Guess that throws my alternative fashion credit out the window, but how can you not love a woman who says "bananas" and "literally" five thousand times a day?
Anyway, here's the bolero beauty.

So if you've got an extra 1350 bucks to spare, Cornelia Webb can give you wings.

Haider Ackermann Spring Summer 2010/11

Haider Ackermann won me over with his long silky maxi skirts and laser like cut leather jackets, so it's no surprise this collection drew my attention in as well. Yes those are some very exposing cutouts and those half dress trains aren't exactly suitable for your morning Tube ride, but blame it on the Paris. Fashion there is almost never about practicality but the va va voom.

Lanvin Spring Summer 2010/11

Slowly but surely coming to fulfill the "salve-ishly follow all Fashion Weeks" tip in my course handbook (except that I am a few weeks late in doing so), I present to you Lanvin, the essential show to cover in my Runway Raves section.
Yes there was less glamour and embellishments then in the A/W collection, one of the main reasons why I am secretly on that season's side, but the lavish materials and cuts made up for all of that.

Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2011

Although I know I am very behind on Fashion Week posting, Nicolas Ghesquiere's vision never fails to excite me.
This collection is quite street style-ised in a way and therefore a bit younger than previous designs, but still bearing his signature.
There are two ways I react to Ghesquiere's collections: either I love them immediately or I give them a "meh..." but then they end up growing on me anyway.
What do you think?
