In terms of our own wardrobe the hunters are far from ready for the winter. The hunters are busy hunting for summer essentials to make their wardrobe summer proof.
The Fashion world is ready for FW11/12. The Fashion weeks have past, the magazines are planning their last summer shoots, the PR agency’s presented the FW11/12 during the press days. The UPR showroom is ready for a new season.The Hunters (were unfortunately at that time not so well-known, they got invitations for the shows) They followed the catwalk shows online. The most Impressive shows:
No doubt one of my (Linda) favorite shows. Seeing Chanel is making my heart beat faster. I really love Chanel. During watching the Chanel FW11/12 show, my boyfriend (who was sitting next to me on the couch) asked about 3 times if everything went well with me.
Lagerfeld’s grunge-y fairy tale the theme of the collection. The setting of the catwalk, was like the collection dusk and dark. Tweed jackets, woolen capes, jumpsuits, lace and leather garments passed the runway. Important colors were black, grey and white, alternating some green and red. The collection is tough and cool because of the (boyfriend items) wide trousers, oversized jackets, the biker boots but at the same time very feminime and really Chanel. I really love the mix and match.
We are big fan of Marc Jacobs as designer for his own collection. We really love the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. Louis Vuitton previously had no spot in my top 10, untill I (Linda) saw this show. The setting of the catwalk was like an old British undercover-agent movie. Elevators with bellboys and black and white blocked floors. Kate Moss closed the show. It was literally a smoking hot ending, since she smoked a cigarette while she did her walk.
Disciplined is the word to summarize the Louis Vuitton FW11/12 collection.
The shapes, the materials, the accessories (masks, handcuffs, caps) radiate a powerfull, strong and disciplined collection. The sculpted jackets, blouses, the pencil skirts. Beautiful!
We are a big fan of Nicolla Formichetti. Fashion Director of Vogue Hommes Japan and Uniqlo. And since September, on top of all that, also as Creative Director of Thierry Mugler! Most of us will probably know him as Fashion Director of Lady Gaga. Nicolla Formichetti put Thiery Mugler back on track with this show. The décor, the music and the designs were outstanding. The bright blue and nude colours, see-through fabrics combined with latex and the Alien-ish, but still wearable pieces.
Oh, and did I (Niels) mention, Lady Gaga rocked the runway?
