Hopefully, we survive 12/21/2012 that way we are able to enjoy some of the amazing things that are coming out of London Fashion Week for the Spring Summer 2013. From Phillip Treacy’s impeccable millinery skills that honor the late Michael Jackson to the funky fresh throwback to the 80s collection of Topman Designs.
I find that as I’ve gotten older I’ve become a little more reserved in what I tend to wear. I definitely am not as bold as I used to be in certain aspects of clothing. At 26, I probably should be wearing whatever I want and I do but only when the time and place calls for it. However, I really do appreciate really well constructed garments of clothing. The craftsmanship that goes into the work that these people create to inspire people’s everyday style from all walks of life is just amazing. Truly talented people.
If I ever need a special hat to make me feel magical Philip Treacy will be the man that I RUN to. I’m normally not a hat person but the art of millinery is one that I could definitely begin to appreciate. I watched the runway show to this collection because it was a homage for Michael Jackson. It was more than that. Words can truly not describe the talent and time that went into this collection. Lady Gaga, was definitely the right choice to open the show. A bursting pink bubble but actually she looked good.
Below is the link to the show…Enjoy!
TopShop presents TopMan for Spring Sumer 2013….and as usual I’m only a few months late on catching this one. This collection reminds me of the 80s. When looking at this show and the images, I immediately get drawn into the masculinity and the femininity of the collection. The colors strong and bold, yet I find a soft quality about them. One of my favorite looks is reminiscent of the neon pink suit Donatella Versace had in the collection for H&M. It’s a great fun summer short suit!
I couldn’t decide between Alexander McQueen or Moschino Cheap & Chic….but I went with Moschino. I’ll post the link and you’ll understand why. Maybe it was the fact that Aluna George gave a live concert and did a rendition of “This Is How We Do It” and totally was able to manipulate the lyrics to talk about Moschino. I really think it has to do more with the presentation of the show and just the fact that they have a quirky style for a very modern woman who isn’t afraid to take risks in the she wears. However, McQueen’s collection for both men and women for 2013….all I can say is OH MY GOD!
