Every now and again I participate in a group blogging event; this time I am joining Kristy Elena on her blog for The Sunglass Hut and the theme of the day is the 2012 S/S shows . I must confess, up until I received the email from Kristy about the upcoming event, I hadn’t paid much attention to the recent shows. The S/S shows tend to bore me. Either way I had a serious study session on Vogue.co.uk to catch up. ok serious study may be a slight exaggeration.
In reality, I think the 2 that put up the Best shows in terms of entertainment were (as usual) Vuitton and Chanel. Honestly sometimes you’d forget it’s even supposed to be about clothing. All that gleaming white (almost like a winter wonderland despite it being a S/S show )Florence Welch popping out of a giant clam to sing at Chanel and Kate Moss on a carousel at Vuitton. Of course the clothing was gorgeous at both shows, but in truth nothing really stood out and made me say WOW.
Jason Wu. I think I may have mentioned in a previous post, that I am a fan of Jason Wu and his work and it just keeps getting better. I love his use of colors here: grey, black, pink, chartreuse even! The different patterns and polka dots the peplums ….I love a good peplum.
Oscar de la Renta
Gaa, sorry this collection left me unable to form full words. It was too gorgeous. I easily could have uploaded all 63 images. While the show itself was slated for its lack of focus, you can’t deny each of the pieces were amazing. The day dresses, the gowns, the high waisted pants. I want. Of course, I dont know what I would do with all the gorgeous gowns as I go no where that requires that level of fabulousness, but that’s not really the point, is it?
After those 2, I stopped looking for any other winners. I had a brief look at Balmain (disappointing and rather like Christophe Decarnin never left) Marc by Marc Jacobs, again disappointing as he is a regular fav( not that I didn’t love the swimwear,which was 1950s fabulous,the rest of it was all just a bit…. meh) Then there was Luca Luca, which I actually quite liked aside from what appeared to be stripy pajama pants, and lastly Project Runway winner Christian Siriano, another collection I really enjoyed…
So in conclusion, I’d like a peplum dress, some gorgeous ballgowns, (neither in chartreuse though, not with my skin tone) a new Marc Jacobs swimsuit, some money to buy them, a place to wear them and a giant carousel in my backyard… Kate Moss not a necessity .
