I’m not really ready for spring, i’m still just at the beginning of my fall/winter obsession and it’s not even time to get crazy about Christmas yet ;). Spring fashion weeks for next year did just finish up though, and that means that I just spent the last few days obsessively pouring over the show slideshows, and getting really excited for trends to come. That said, i’d thought i share a few of my favorites with you.
There were a lot this season, so I’ve pared it down to just six 😉
The Row. Is anyone else as thrilled as me that Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen gave up acting to start amazing fashion collections? Beautiful neutrals, sophisticated lines.
Custo Barcelona. Can’t say I would ever wear a swimsuit with sleeves, but those colors sure are beautiful.
10 Crosby Derek Lamb. Perfect shapes and styling.
Burberry Prorsum…. Christopher Bailey, enough said.
Burberry Prorsum again. I am thrilled that pastels are making such a beautiful comeback.
Celine. I regularly drool my way through looking at this show, and this season was no exception.
Ok, enough about spring, now to get back to my fall crocheting project.
Ok, so they weren’t Seattle artists specifically, but I do Love the Seattle Art Museum, especially their current exhibit Future Beauty, 30 Years of Japanese Fashion. Whoever curated this particular show created what I thought was one of the most cohesive and beautiful exhibits I have ever seen displayed at the SAM. Now I didn’t find out until halfway through the exhibit that it was a photo free zone, so Sshhhhhh, these photos will be our little secret 😉
Japanese designers in general push boundaries of traditional garment shapes, and I love it. While they may not be very practical, they truly are works of art.
The below garment was my favorite piece in the show. It was a beautiful play on traditional dress/Kimono silhouette, and the use of the bold and bright textile was brilliant!
So if you get a chance, go take a wander through these halls before September 8th. I’m already planning on a second visit before they are packed up and sent off for some other cities enjoyment.
