Season Highlights: Céline FW18

This is a short but cute collection, resting on a lot of earthy tones, coming off true fall with rich colors and textures. I will say this has a much more mature feel to it than other shows; aside from tone there’s increasingly interesting/odd silhouettes – this gives an almost contemporary art in its imagery […]

Season Highlights: Louis Vuitton FW18

Hmmm another soft-light production. This one’s also somewhat bland, but also pretty, branded, and very layered. What I like is that LV FW18 is totally fashion cult: Ivy library edition, maybe a little Yale chic. It screams “Mission: Bar Exam”. The models’ faces really back this up…they scream the hard look of a death knell […]

Season Highlights: Miu Miu FW18

My first thoughts: so so cute!! My second thoughts: what’s really going on here? A chic 80s nerd girl feel, exacerbated by all the acid wash denim and slouchy coats, these bring a casual look. Neutrals paired with bright, vibrant colors in a variety of materials – mohair, tweed, leather, very interesting. (Yarn fringe detailing??) […]

Season Highlights: Chanel Fall 2018

A highlight? Maybe backlight; backlit better.

The shapes are interesting, they’re fitted and flowy, with a heavy boxy silhouette. The classic tweeds all look very thick, almost carpeted. There’s […]

MFW SS2017: Moschino 

Wow this collection…is…not what I expected. I typically like Moschino, but this…paper dolls to pills…doesn’t work for me. The pill case theme isn’t that bad – it even makes more sense for the brand, even if i think it’s really cliché.I did not like the paper doll/printed on look, which  is really the whole show. […]

Creep Aesthetics: Red Devil

Sympathy for the devil, because clearly, even she went through it. *an original moodboard, by Me*
