Rebecca Taylor on Golden Heels

One of the most fashionably crowded shows was Rebecca Taylor’s. People waiting for that in a long line were well-dressed and seemed to be highly related to the industry. I was staring speechless at all the different styles and recognized in them the whole array of things which constitute a true fashion week. As for the catwalk, I couldn’t stop thinking of how comfortable clothes can be produced when the designer takes equally into consideration comfort and elegance. The end product of this creative process in this case was some  sparkly but easy to wear pieces, some nudes, and many modern shapes. Shades that were braking the monopoly of neutrals were lime, light yellow, shiny sequined orange, lavender, and golden hues.  I also loved the golden ankle-boot sandals for hip styles. Fabrics were soft or fluid, further reinforcing the idea of stylish comfort.

General Idea: Setting the Mood for Color

General Idea kept for us a surprise rainbow of styles and materials. Daring men can now trasform their preppy look into a bold statement empoying an amazing range of vivid shades, very uplifting and very to-the-point. We loved the light jackets and raincoats, the stripes and plaids, the college boy looks as well as those outfits with shorts and jackets. Men seem to remain teenagers for ever and in that case the designer wants to stress the fact literally and evidently! I had to be very fast moving using the camera since most models where running fast on the catwalk. I hope that what you see, sometimes naturally cropped, will look interesting!

Emerson: Urban and Wearable

Emerson was all about wearable, urban style with an artistic twist. I went to the show early this morning (9/9, 9 AM) and despite my FNO exhausting schedule, I felt quite relaxed dreaming of my next summer vacations in the Greek islands. Various shades of blue reminding me of the sea, of grey that is cool and neutral, of absolute black with silvery details and of purple and nudes just made my day, together with the fact that I had a better connection and a slightly deeper knowledge of my brand new iPad device and applications. Nevertheless, it’s still hard to get connected to the Internet at Lincoln Center if you don’t have 3G. So I’ll try to get it. Anyway, the Emerson looks were great, with fluid forms and more tailored pieces in one delicious summery cocktail. I loved the prints, the sophisticated coexistence of party looks and corporate styles and the matching with elegant simplicity and geometrical details. Overall, I could wear almost everything from this collection, indulging myself into the endless game of asymmetries and symmetries.

Fashion Weekly Update

Hey my tellusfashion junkies, I’m back again for another week with all the fashion gossip.

This week John Galliano was found guilty in Paris!!!!

John Galliano had his day in court this week, where a correctional court in Paris, gave the verdict on the none present designer. Which of course came back as “Guilty”, for uttering racist and anti-Semitic comments in a Paris cafe.

The court handed down a total fine of €17,500, which includes €4,000 for February’s alcohol-fueled, anti-Semitic rant in a café that cost him his job as creative director at Dior, and €2,000 for a similar outburst last October. The ruling fell far shy of the maximum fine possible. The designer will also pay over €5,000 in legal fees and a symbolic euro in damages to each plaintiff and to five anti-racist organizations that had brought a civil suit.

As expected, Galliano will serve no prison time. In its comments, the court noted that despite his triple addiction (alcohol, sleeping pills, Valium), Mr Galliano was lucid enough to be conscious of his acts. That the designer had become “a ghost of himself,” and the loss of his iconic status was punishment enough, noted the lawyer for Geraldine Bloch, one of the plaintiffs.

With the trial closed, an announcement is expected from Dior shortly about Galliano’s successor.
