SHIFT OF STYLE

           

SHIFT OF STYLE


           
18.07.2010
I am going through a total style depression. I feel so akward. And I know exactly why. There is a huge shift in style going on right now. No more skinny pants, architectural shoes and large handbags. It's all column-like pants and square feminine shoulderbags now. And don't forget the kittenheels. I can't take it. Not because I don't like the new silhouettes and accessories, but beacuse nothing in my closet is up to date anymore! I am so frustrated.

The clothes were not inspiring but the setting of the show was great. Conny Groenewegen showed outside: the sun had just set, there were lights everywhere and the public and the models all wore headphones to hear the music. The organisation overestimated the obedience level of the fashioncrowd though: it all kind of fell apart because people were walking through the show and refused to sit down.

I really liked the Daryl van Wouw show, something I did not expect at all! I know his designs as very sporty and streetstyle-like. Not my thing. But his show for spring 2011 was cool. The girls looked like jungle warriors from outerspace.
And I am now totally convinced: I need to paint my hair.

Fashion week is almost over, the closing party is tonight. It was very hectic so I'm a little late with posting! But here are some highlights!
First night: Iris van Herpen. Great show, beautiful pieces: more art than fashion.

Girls girls girls, they look so cute. I can't decide whether I like the black and white trousers with the belt best, or the jeans cut offs with sandals. I'm so happy to be a girl, and like all that girly stuff. How boring must it be to be a guy.

I am seriously considering painting my hair in a funky shade. I mean why not, I can get non-permanent paint. Maybe pink wouldn't be my best colour since I'm a brunette, but blue or green could work. Just some streaks here and there...

Aren't these the hairiest boots you've ever seen? They're so far out, they can only be designed by Alexander Wang. The thing with shoes like these is this: they're not pretty of beautiful in any way. But they're so much FUN! How much fun must it be, walking around in these crazy boots, with people looking at you like you're insane. Great stuff!

Chanel Couture, always a pleasure. You know, it's a spectacle more than it is truely inspirational on a sartorial level.
What gets me is this: after some time, still the long straight hair of the models is worn underneath the jacket/dress. We have been seeing this at several shows for quite some time now. I like the look, it's nonchalant. But why is it done?

Do you know the feeling of seeing a girl and wanting to be her? You know, not really 'be' her, because you like yourself and all. But you like her style and attitude and you think: I wouldn't mind hangin' around with her. Erin Wassson is such a girl to me.

To kick off July, a post about boys. And not just boys, but male models. Aah, their shoulders, their arms, their hair, their fashion forward style. Don't you just love 'em?
