Margaret Howell Spring/Summer 2012

Is perfection. The silhouettes could be a little tighter but maybe t’is the British way. This can be a pretty “boring” collection but it’s incredibly practical and I would wear every single thing.

FW 2010 shows, part 3: Balmain

So I kinda feel like Balmain puts out the same stuff every single season — the boxy shoulders, sharp silhouettes, military chic — but these gold pieces from the fall/winter show are fucking STUNNING.

FW 2010 shows, part two

I’ve been pretty “meh” about the New York shows. I barely liked anything. The things I do like are — surprise, surprise — clean classics that are styled amazingly together with other pieces, and outfits that have a pop of color.

Tommy Hilfiger



3.1 Phillip Lim


I expected some stunning shit from Phillip Lim because his show last season was easily my favorite, but this was … not so great. There was way more bad than good and that just doesn’t make for a very good collection.

Also, another label I can’t ever seem to get into: Proenza Schouler. I just don’t get it, man. Yet another season that doesn’t help me understand their hype. I love their accessories, but their clothes are just so underwhelmingly normal and doesn’t justify the hype. A ton of celebrities carrying your one really popular bag really shouldn’t equate to a freakish cult following …

DKNY

DKNY is becoming a consistent favorite of mine. Sure it’s the more “commercial” line (as compared to its parent line, Donna Karan), but at the end of the day, I like lines full of pieces that I can wear. The shows are also styled very nicely, and I love that the show always sticks to a color palette, which appeals to me.

Shows that have disappointed: Rag & Bone (whyyyyyy oh whyyyy), Alexander Wang, Peter Som (!! this is so hideous), Band of Outsiders. I keep expecting Alexander Wang to blow me away with his clothes because there isn’t a contemporary designer I can think of who is as well loved as Alex Wang but I’ve disliked every single season he’s ever put out. Sad day.
