Today I'm working on compiling all of the fall/spring runway shows into something organized for the blog and putting together a few guests posts.

Real post to come soon :)



Diwali Wishes At Louis Vuitton

I didn't even know what Diwali was until Friday, but it's quickly become one of my favorite holidays. WWD released a photo back in August describing Louis Vuittons plan to celebrate the Indian Festival of Lights by creating themed windows in stores worldwide. Polyvore is also holding a contest in honor of the occasion, but I never win those :( haha. I'm in love with Indian/Bollywood styles. I'm all about rich fabrics and vibrant colors. Pics of the actual window displays below.

PFW Yves Saint Laurent S/S 2011

Stefano Pilati has been both commended and criticized for the pieces that make up the Spring 2011 YSL show. The colors were a contrast of stark white and jet black with splashes of color, ruffles, fur, and sheer billowy printed fabrics. One dress in particular features an all over thumb print pattern, referencing tribalism and Pilati's ideas about "how fashion is a way for women to identify themselves, just as members of a tribe do. (Tim Blanks for Style.Com)" My favorite piece is the all white trenchcoat worn by Joan Smalls. The color is stunning against her skin, I love the accent of the neck scarf, and the fit creates a really sophisticated kind of retro chic silhouette. With so many other design houses showcasing bright and bold colors for spring, some think that this line was blah by comparison. Thoughts?
