Favorite Runway Looks

YSL2.jpg picture by stylebook18

I was inspired by the cocoon-shaped jackets, sexy caged sandals, drop-crotch trousers, and the way Stefano Pilati's used soft and delicate fabrics to create such dramatic and structured pieces. Simple, elegant, and modern... just how I like it.

Her collection definitely had a very nonchalant, effortless vibe going on. I loved the oversized blazers with the rucked sleeves as well as the slouchy jumpers and trousers. Pure understated sexiness.

What were some of your favorite collections??

I loved Stella McCartney (the turquoise jumper!) and Karl Lagerfeld.

diamondsinchampagne said...

The turquoise blazer from stella is gorgeous. Love that colour.

My favourite so far from Paris was Lacroix, but i'm biased because I am obsessed with him as a designer with his past collections, and avant garde nature which makes him so fascinating to me. I love the corseted bodices, exquisite detailing and the shapes are extraordinary.

My favourite so far from the fashion weeks, was Milan. However cannot wait to see Chanel's collection and Louis Vuitton.

Don't Be A Hero said...

my fav collection was Kate Lanphear.


isn't she everybody's?

in all honesty, I paid much more attention to the shoes this season than the clothes :p gareth pugh, stella mccartney, yves saint laurent, marni and those soleless ones at Aminaka Wilmont are my faves.

Le Fashion said...

stella always has a great color palette for spring! I also loved the sparkled body suit :)

Liv/e in Both Senses said...

Love the masculine/feminine mix/clash. It's just awesome! They really do have to create a name for that trend, I haven't heard of one as yet.

I can definitely see you pulling these looks off. They're awesome.

P.S. Not sure if it transferred up, or down, but your mum has really cool style :)

mareGa said...

SHOEBOX said...

I haven´t had the time to look through the shows since.. like monday? So I don´t know my favs yet. But I liked the looks you showed from YSL. Both him and Stella´s collection looks a bit like the eighties with th big shoulders and oversized blazer :)

ModeJunkie said...

Marina said...

Stella, Balmain, Givenchy! and others you can see in my blog. YSL spring-summer 2009 don't strike me.

Dana (MODAna) said...

but how do you feel about YSL... without YSL?
I'm interested in hearing what you say.
PS YSL is also my fav designer, his mini Downtown (my mom has the large version) is my absolute fav bag, I'm wearing it in my last post

Cessa said...

I love the caged sandals in YSL, but I have to say my favourite collections were Andrew Gn, Viktor&Rolf, Sophie Kokosalaki and Hussein Chalayan. He (Andrew Gn) is one of my fav designers though. However, I do like Stella's oversized blazers and dressed, especially the teal one.

saray said...

I loved Stella McCartney..

MeryJane said...

I loved Stella McCartney's collection.
My favourite out of what you pictured had to be the gorgeous white dress and peach blazer. Such a classic and chic look.

Madame Bavardages said...

I really like the Stella MC Cartney's collection, this brand is very chic feminie and wearable. Cacharel's liberty was very fresh

Val said...

Ah, these collections are so very you. Blazers galore.

I must say that I'm in love with the balmain collection (like every other blogger in the blogsphere).

I also loved stella mccartney that tealish jumper was one of my fave pieces, the color is simply fab. I honestly had so many favorites, I dont even know how to narrow it.

marega: Gracias!!

the stylish wanderer: Ahhh YSL is brilliant!

dana (modana): I love YSL even if he isn’t designing anymore although the collections were better back in the 60-80s. I have this book filled with images of green fur shrugs, flamboyant dresses, and perfect oversized blazers. The book is heavenly.
