Temperley Goes Art Deco for London Fashion Week #Retro #Modern #LFW #FW2013

Starting out London Fashion Week full force, Alice Temperley took a classic 40’s inspired look adding dashes of golds and blue to accentuate the long linear figures. Drawing heavily on Art Deco and early sixties chic, Temperley still managed to present a very modern look including the ever trendy over sized jackets, boatneck and high collars we have seen all over runways this year.

Her full length gowns wrecked the runway this year with elongated silhouettes. I can see Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton or some other ethereal goddess wearing these to award season. They are chic in design, geometric shaping and linear quality making any woman look tall and lean.

Bravo Miss Temperley.

This year Prabal Gurung has taken the theme of military colors style that we see in so many collection’s and mixed it with draped material that flow against the body. Not forgetting well-placed fur trim, casual sweaters and and classic military chic crossed with with a vintage look of class from the 1940’s. These are apparent in every collection for Fall/Winter 2013. So what makes Prabal Gurung stand out above the many collections we have seen?

He crossed it with his personal touch including; well placed cut outs and the ever influential Gothic element, creating a striking collection. The biggest selling point? His above the knee buckle boots that are to die for.

Runway Report – Jason Wu Starts Off New York Fashion Week With a Bang! #Hot #NYFW #FW2013 #JasonWu

As Fashion Week in New York begins Jason Wu has stepped forward as one of the first designers to define style for the Fall Winter 2013 season. Wu brought forth a collection that was monochromatic, with dashes of persimmon & varying shades of taupe on classic looks that embodied the late 60’s and 80’s. Flash has been replaced with refined style, a dash of futurism, monochromatic blocking and elongated peplum-skirted figures. Add the accessory of rich fur throughout his collection and overall his women’s collection put it’s best foot forward to start New York Fashion Week out with a proper BANG.

Check out the collection below.

 

Goat Hair is the New Black, #ShoeSunday

It’s mid-way through summer and FW 2012/2013 is upon us. Fashion moves fast and even though I have only used my bikini once I’m already looking at my new winter wardrobe want’s.

It was my Twitter (shameless plug:follow me @HeathyrWolfe) that keyed me in to my new fashion fetish. Goat hair accessories.

Above is the Marni goat hair bag. Cute but a little plain.

I think it’s better to accessorize with something like this.

Jimmy Choo’s version;

Raaaaawwwr. Purr. Yes please.

And for a little flair in the shoe department, because no man or woman is complete without good shoe. I offer you the Yves Saint Laurent ‘Mohawk’ shoe.

Oh sure, scream at me for being not PC. Peta has probably blacklisted me from any of their functions at this point. I know it’s from a cute(?) furry critter, but you know you secretly yearn for it too.

Consider the trend won’t you? I think we need more of this for fall and less of this.

(This is ACTUALLY Christian Lacroix)

Dontcha think?

Send in any new fall fetishes to Heathyrw@gmail.com and I might just blog ’em.
