and on day three...the fashion gods bestowed upon us....
alexander wang: ...okay. it pains me to write this..but i really wasn't obsessed with this collection from mr. wang. i know, i know! i'm an alexander wang GROUPIE! i stood in line for the sample sale a month or so ago..i knocked people down to get to those great cutout dresses!! but i'm not in love with this. first off, it's a white out! i know, white is the new black, especially for spring! but something about the all white (with smatterings of beige and a metallic mint green) makes me lose all the beautiful detail in this work. the pants ARE beautifully tailored, i love the gold accents on the hips, and i love that some of the sleeve lengths don't match up (it's so casually, effortlessly chic), but the white..ugh. but i'll tell you one thing...those beige half booties/half slingbacks...yes please! those will be in my closet on march 1st!
prabal gurung: ultra sophisticated, ultra talented mr. prabal gurung, ladies and gentlemen. he is a relative newcomer to the fashion scene but he's making lots of noise. rachel zoe dies for him. don't we all? this collection of his is for the smart, intelligent, career woman...but the woman who still cares about being carefully sexy and overtly fabulous. the shoes..come on. they're amazing. and i love the soft coral color accenting the black and white is like a dreamiscle floating on a cloud. i want that strapless, architectural coral colored delight of a dress in my closet immediately, but i'd take the hemline up just a bit. the below the knee hem is somewhat unforgiving..especially for gals with athletic legs..and a few dresses had some sea anemone looking skirts...but overall it's a strong collection with a strong point of view. i can't wait to see more of p. gurung!
a short wrap-up of day three, and sorry for the delay..day four coming up!!! it only gets better, folks!
