Some more fun and games from New York Fashion Week;
I think that if Marc Jacobs has his way then hats will be making a big comeback this Autumn, I have no complaints about that whatsoever! There was much anticipation surrounding MJ’s collection and I think he deffo delivered! I am loving the return of the shoulder pad and the rouched front skirt (not sure of the technical term for this! Lol!). The whole collection will be very transferable to the high street and could be channeled without having to make any extravagant purchases. Teaming a big shirt with a high waisted mid calf skirt or popping yourself down to the charity shop with shoulder pads in mind (nothing too garish mind) and I think the rest of us could be working the MJ look quite successfully!
I especially love this outfit ->
A stark contrast from Marc Jacobs was Diane Von Furstenberg, above, all hail the return of girly! Being a girlie girl I love DVF’s collection! Check out the funky head gear as well- a bit of hippy meets Star Wars! DVF’s collection is visually stunning and so theatrical, perfect for summer 2009 (I know 2008’s has only just finished, but forward thinking guys!). Something that we can be working over the winter though; a long cardigan nipped in with a belt, preferably a nice rustic looking belt- nothing too patent or ‘perfect’ looking; and for the brave maybe the head band as well, you could probably make it more wintery by using leather fringing and knotting instead of the floral theme DVF has working…. I doubt I’ll be able to find anything similar in the shops so off to the haberdashery me thinks!
