F/W 08 (After September you're welcome!)

(Yigal Azrouel)

I love these gorgeous photographs Christopher Anderson made for a documentary about the NY Fashion Week 2008. They really give you a great impression of the vibe in NY in February this year.

Some of my favourite shows and collections.
Stella never disappoints me, nor does Chloé.
Balmain is one of my new favourites and so are Christopher Kane and Duro Olowu

Stella McCartney



Christopher Kane

Yigal Azrouël (oh, how i love this man....)

Duro Oluwu (a London-based genius)


The show that really disappointed me, was Balenciaga's.
I didn't like the way Nicolas Ghesguiere used the volume, where he so well known and loved for. I especially find those little jackets horrible.

Some of the beautiful make up looks for this fall.

Maybe it's just me, but i always find this kind of posts, with lots of runway pictures, pretty boring.
Hopefully you don't, but if you think the same way, don't hestitate to let me know!
Of course, i'd love to know (again) what you think about the collections i showed you and what your favourites for F/W 08 09 are!

Oh don't worry, I basically love all of your posts (even though I don't comment often, I check your blog frequently!). Those fashion week pictures are extra lovely--very haunting and mysterious. It's kind of how I always imagined fashion week to be like. Anyways I was wondering if I could link your blog to my new blog?
Ciao ciao <3

never tired of them! our taste is quite similar. i adored cloe, stella and balmain was a true revelation. prada is a genius. always and forever. however and on the contrary from you i liked balenciaga too. maybe i'm always prejudiced i favour of nicolas!

I agree with you about Balenciaga's collection. All those architectonic things I find really re-made. I love things from Azrouël. For me he is genius. I love his work.

terren said...

Missa said...

I agree, Stella and Chloe are always wonderful and I'm really liking Balmain here too!

Yes I must agree with you on Stella McCartney. She is indeed very pleasing. Btw how do you get the photos to sit in that layout? Mine only go in one line, straight down.
