McQueen S/S”12

The new McQueen collection is fantastic! In my opinion Sarah Burton is doing an amazing job. The collection is based on three G´s; Madame Grès for the pleating and draping, Gaudí for the architecture, and earth goddess Gaia for the sense of an all-encompassing oceanic life, like the outfits composed of coral or shells. Watch the slideshow below and enjoy the creativity!

Galliano sans Galliano

I´m still in mourning of John Gallianos absence in the fashion world, although I´m happy he´s getting the help that he needs. His replacement Bill Gaytten made the following statement on friday:
“We’ve not heard the last of John Galliano.”
“We’ll see,” he told the Financial Times. “It’s not over until it’s over. I can’t say any more than that right now.”
So, fingers crossed he´ll be coming back to us soon…!

I like the S/S”12 collection, I think Bill Gaytten is doing the label justice, however I miss the theatrical feel which was what made me fall in love with John Galliano in the first place…

Rodarte S/S”12 RTW


The Rodarte Spring 2012 collection is a mashup of Disney´s Sleeping Beauty from 1959 and the colorful paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. I´m having mixed feelings about this. I like the Sunflowers and Starry night prints on the fabrics and the bright colors are amazing. As for the kitschy prom dress silhouettes I´m not quite convinced. I think these amazing fabrics would have been made more justice in a slightly more simple classic design. The above posted dress was the only one I truly enjoyed as a whole.

The end of D&G

As of next season Dolce & Gabbana will close its D&G line to merge it with the main collection line. The S/S 2012 will therefor be the brands last fashion show. Hope is by moving their most successful line it will give more strength and energy to the Dolce & Gabbana line.
