Mad Marc

This collection was far from his Marc collection, but in a good way. In true Marc Jacobs fashion, he has indeed turned vintage into modern. It sort of had a Mad Men feel to it. I adored the polkadots of all sorts, especially the polkadot stockings & the 3D dots. His choice of fabric was excellent. The hats were adorable, I haven't seen any designers putting that much thought into hats this season and Marc's choice of hats were perfect for each outfit. Marc Jacobs just keeps on amazing me, his sense of style and the fact that he thinks about what is wearable for a woman and can manage to still incorporate some form of modernity to the clothes makes for a great designer I know he will continue to produce amazing collections. 
Thanks Marc.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2011


This collection was nothing compared to the Pre-Fall show (which I absolutely loved as well) I loved the trenches (done in true London form) especially the ones with the fur. 
I enjoyed the sounds of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” flowing from the speakers it set the right atmosphere for the show, which clearly had some Mod inspiration, (fabulous). 
The shoes were a nice touch, but the bags...aahhh yes, the bags were my absolute fave, (okay second to the trenches) but I can’t wait to see them up close and personal in the stores, even though the collection was made available for purchase online right after the show.

This seemed to be the most highly anticipated show for London’s Fashion Week. Among the high profile attendees were Daisy Lowe, Lily Donaldson Kate Bosworth, Rachel Bilson, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and Chloe Green and her famous father and Topshop tycoon Sir Philip Green.
