rodarte and ballet and cupcakes and me.

I changed up the blog last night, although I'm not sure if I like it enough to stay, it's kinda dark and I want something to celebrate Spring. I'll tinker around.

Anyway, my favorite runway looks as of recent:

Luisa Beccaria F/W 08 in Milan. This is the first time I've seen her collections and looking to her previous ones I'm glad I was introduced by this one; it's her best so far. Feminine colors, frothy materials and details, I love every aspect of the collection and it's dream quality. Very wearable and very delicate. Click to enlarge, if you please. Images all from the fashion spot.

Rick Owens F/W08. One word: fan.effing.tastic. I love every look, and the way he worked the fur was amazing even though I'm not a fan of fur usually. The tailoring is impeccable... jesus, I want every look right now. Its steady and sharp....really, just look for yourself.

As I have no doubt my fellow bloggers will be posting their opinions on Gucci, I'm going to let them tackle that runway (so I can finish reading this article on one of my favorite Japanese fashion houses, Comme des Garçons. It's a long one, be warned, but a great read.)

What do you think of these collections? Yay or nay?

Also, NY Mag has this fantastic edit on dresses from the runways, and their Rodarte picture took my breathe away. Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere on the website AND Rodarte's site had so many hits it's out of bandwidth. Gack. I'll scan it in tommorow.

Until tommorow;
