Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 RTW
I don't know about all of you, but the first thing I noticed were the hats. I'd like to applaud the models who managed to walk with parts of the hats covering their eyes. I noticed Frida Gustavsson looking down to see where she was going. Part of me thinks they look like those giant pimp hats people wear with pimp costumes and the other part of me thinks they are straight out of a Dr. Seuss book. One part is bad and the other is awesome (in my opinion), so that's how I feel. They are so ridiculous that I love it, but could never wear them.
And then there's the padded hips. Yes, I said padded hips. How interesting would it be to see that trend take off? The collection was also so over sized, like the scarves and safety pins I guess holding the scarves. And I cannot fathom the amount of different fabrics and prints used in this collection. It's like a cluster of different prints. Overall, the collection is just so interesting. I cannot even finish review because I keep looking at the outfits again and again. Makes you just intrigued and wonder what Jacobs and his team will do next.
Edit: Three days after I post this and I realize there's a double of one picture at the top. Oops? I can't figure out which outfit I wanted up there, so I'll leave it. Sorry.
Alice + Olivia Fall 2012 RTW
Thom Browne Fall 2012 RTWI'm having a really difficult time trying figuring out where to start with this collection. I will start with how theatrical it is! I mean, the opening of the show alone where ten fashion victoms lay in coffins where a eulogy was read and then revived. The atmosphere of a dimly-lit and candle-lit runway with draping also really brought it together.. Talk about Tim Burton? Honestly, what a spectacle! Like you're in a world of fantasy and dreams there. But the main part to me was the craftsmanship. It's stunning how well tailored all of pieces are. It's very couture, really. It was just so elegant, yet whimsical. There was a big emphasis on a slim waist and then an exaggeration of body parts. I'm mostly impressed with the alligator-like tail.
